Jourdan Dunn vs. Anna Dello Russo…Who wore Moschino better?

This week’s dress-off has pulled in two major fashion players, both of whom know how to leave their well-dressed imprints on our style-saturated minds. Upping the glam factor during Fashion Month, as per usual, was Anna Dello Russo – the high priestess of unabashed, high end fashion that says nothing of a tamed approach to dressing in the morning. Sporting autumn/winter ‘14’s biggest parody of fast fashion – the ‘Over 20 Billion Served’ McDonald’s sweatshirt, masterminded by Jeremy Scott at Moschino – during Milan Fashion Week, ADR gave us (and the flurry of street style photogs) pure, unadulterated viewing pleasure. Wearing it as a dress, she accessorised with a matching quilted bag, featuring the symbolic Golden Arches; a woollen scarf and lace-up booties. The matching phone cover certifies this look as Dello Russo down to a T. But, putting a slightly more pared back spin on this brash runway number was Brit babe Jourdan Dunn, who opted to take a much more NYC approach with her styling. Tempering the loudness of the sweat with all-black staples; a leather mini skirt, shearling coat, trusty tote and Balenciaga cut-out boots completed the look. Perfect. So, who deserves to be crowned the sartorial queen in this war of wonderful wares? Given there’s a world of difference between the styles of these two fashion queens; we’re sticking with our slick style guns on this and awarding Jourdan the accolade. Anna’s power dressing prowess never fails to excite, but Jourdan’s effortless ease makes her look a lot more wearable. You go, girl. [Images: Jourdan; Anna]

Anna Dello Russo vs. Lily Collins…Who wore Givenchy better?

Along with ‘It’ bags and must-have heels, cult sweatshirts and jumpers have gained serious traction in the past months. From the Kenzo eye sweater to Brian Lichtenberg’s collection of ‘Homies’ imprinted beanies and tops, logo mania has well and truly taken over. And now, this week’s fash-off contenders, Anna Dello Russo and Lily Collins, are also doing their bit for branding by sporting the same sell-out Givenchy Bambi print jumper – at the same event! Attending the spring/summer 2014 Givenchy runway show in Paris, the editor famed for taking “fashion showers” was spotted outside the show venue, aptly in said sweater. Needing no introduction to the camera, Anna Dello Russo teamed hers with a waist-cinching belt, black clutch and statement ankle boots. But, not too far away (on the opposite side of the front row, we presume), Lily Collins was also wearing the same printed sweater, albeit with a very un-ADR spin. Going for more glam goth than golden glamazon, Lily went with a sheeny vampish lip, black ankle strap sandals and matching clutch. A selection of bracelets gave the final finishing touch. So, who wins in the battle of the Bambis? Oh, we do love you ADR, but that tan and accessory overkill just isn’t working for us. Fashion shower detox, maybe? Lily, you’ve got this one hands down. Agree with our style verdict? Whose look wins for you? Tell us in the comments section below! Givenchy Bambi and female form print jumper, £853.51, available at Barneys. [Image: Anna; Lily]

Emma Stone vs. Anna Dello Russo: Who wore Rochas better?

Last Updated on 24th January 2013 It’s a tough one this week, as we’re faced with two of fashion’s most forwardly dressed ladies! Although Anna Dello Russo has first dibs on nearly every item of clothing that graces the runways before the entire planet even gets whiff of them, Emma Stone beat the vivaciously attired editor-at-large to it! Showing off a stunning creation from the Fall 2012 Rochas collection, Emma looked a dream as she attended the Tokyo premiere for The Amazing Spider-Man back in June last year. Going prim all the way – in line with dress’s ladylike, drop-waist silhouette – Emma wore Christian Louboutin bow pumps and sported a softly-done updo. Anna Dello Russo, on the other hand, steers clear of the conventional style path and always seeks to add a much welcomed twist to her well-documented looks. And you didn’t expect her to wear a simple brown dress, well, in a simple way, did you? Throwing out the basic rules that apply to statement accessories, and throwing the brightest bag, heels and earrings into the mix, our fave fashion personality gave the street-stylers much to pap outside the Miu Miu Spring 2013 presentation during Paris Fashion Week in October. She wore Miu Miu booties (natch), ADR x H&M earrings (double natch) and a super-statement making Paula Cademartori bag. Who wins? Emma Stone? Why? Well, as much as we do love an eye-ball popping ensemble from ADR during Fashion Month and beyond, this pretty Rochas number didn’t really need such harsh colours to dress it up. Emma’s dainty, feminine styling wins hands down!

Peek some Anna Dello Russo for H&M pieces here!

Last Updated on 12th September 2012 Sadly, nothing will ever be quite as good as that Anna Dello Russo pop video now, but we still think this bit of news is worth mentioning. ADR’s accessories collection for H&M is nearly here – October 4th, don’t forget, people – so it was about time some key looks were unveiled. You know, just so we’re familiar with what we’re actually queuing outside H&M’s doors at the crack of dawn for. According to WWD, some  of the pieces in the collection include a fascinator with a stuffed bird on top (standard), thigh high boots, and an abundance of chunky bits of jewellery and colourful clutches. Well, it would hardly be an Anna Dello Russo collection without the serious bling, would it? And if you need yet another reason to nab a piece from the collection, note that the Vogue Japan editor will be donating some of the profits to the Japanese branch of the International Red Cross. So, you’ll be updating your wardrobe and giving money to a good cause!; winner! Any pieces worth getting out of bed in the early hours of the morning for? [Images]

Anna Dello Russo steals the show in Victoria Beckham

Last Updated on 10th September 2012 Anna Dello Russo isn’t one to fade into the background, so it comes as no surprise to learn that she captured our (and we assume most people’s) attention during New York Fashion Week. The Vogue Japan editor looked exquisite in a black and beige Victoria Beckham dress, which she put her own personal stamp on by teaming it with a loud – and very tall – hat (we pity the poor person who was sitting behind her in the second row!), bold red nails, and her trademark in-your-face accessories. Despite countless female celebs rocking VB’s designs, we have to admit that this dress looks like it was made especially for her, as it complements her body type perfectly; and her choice of bling, clutch bag, hair style and make-up were equally as flawless too. We literally wouldn’t change a thing! [Image]

Anna Dello Russo turns pop star for H&M

Last Updated on 5th September 2012 Vogue Japan‘s quirky and unpredictable fashion director Anna Dello Russo, who is the self-proclaimed Lady Gaga of fashion, (although we’re a bit dubious about this title as Mother Monster herself has a rather epic influence in the fashion world, but never mind) has recorded a pop song and video to promote her upcoming accessories range with H&M. And we have the teaser right here! The song, entitled Fashion Shower, was produced by DJ Emiliano Pepe and the video was shot by Alex Turvey. The full video actually debuts later on in the day so keep your eyes peeled for it; and keep an eye out for the accompanying print campaign too, which was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. We don’t think Lady Gaga should be worried, but Anna’s video is rather brilliant to watch. We’re on the fourth play already and we’re not even done for the day. What do you think? Should she give up the day job? Anna Dello Russo for H&M – which is of course the reason behind all this musical promo – launches on October 4th. [WWD]

Anna Dello Russo owns 4000 pairs of shoes

Last Updated on 21st March 2021 You’d expect a fashion editor, especially one with as much spice as Anna Dello Russo, to have a covetable clothing collection, but for the Vogue Japan editor at large it goes somewhat further – by, say, a good 4000 pairs of shoes and 250 black tuxedo jackets or so. “I was crazy about fashion from the day I was born,” she says, and she’s not lying. Relentlessly restyling her Barbies, her first big spending spree came at the age of 13 with a visit to Fendi, no less, and the rest, as they say, is history – she ditched her husband for his wardrobe space and now has a drinks cabinet for a kitchen because, in her words, she “had to choose between a kitchen and more closets, so I took the closets.” But such an extensive fashion archive doesn’t mean she’s a hoarder – hell, Dell Russo is anything but. “I hate vintage clothes,” she tells W magazine, referring even to last year’s Prada. “I love the smell of a new store, not an old dress.” As such, her walk-in wardrobes are organised with military precision: new purchases sit front-row as last week’s items are squeezed to the back, but when the season ends, it all goes (bar the furs, they’re timeless) to make way for her new-season purchases. “The preparation,” she says, “is truly scientific.” To be Anna Dello Russo for a day… Read the full interview with the Italian super-stylist at wmagazine.com.

Anna Dello Russo to launch fragrance

White Tie and Decorations dress code for Met Gala 2014

Last Updated on 9th April 2014 Last year it was all about punk which led to some great (and not-so-great) sartorial choices, but this year’s Met Gala has a very different dress code. It’s just been revealed that the designer being honoured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is American couturier Charles James, and as a result, the dress code that all the lucky attendees will be adhering to this year is “white tie and decorations”. Quite an ambiguous dress code if ever there was one. Charles James was all about rich colours and glamorous eveningwear, so we are expecting the finest and highest standards of Haute Couture dresses for the red carpet. We reckon the more extravagant dressers like Lady Gaga and Anna Dello Russo will be all over the decorations like a rash, but the dress code’s ambiguity does leave a lot of room for confusion and maybe even error. It’s a good, safe dress code for the boys though, which is also great news for us as it means we get to stare at dapper looking men in sharp suits and white ties all night. We’ll be back with more details as and when we get them. [Refinery 29]

How to do normcore without completely giving it away

It’s the nameless, label-less, anti-trend sweeping the fashion world, and its popularity, surprisingly, shows no sign of waning. Normcore, or dressing like your dad, is a dress code some too-hip-for-street-style individuals have adopted, in order to remove themselves from the overstretched fashion clichés that bloggers and street style stars have made popular. More relevant examples of normcore advocates include the Olsen Twins (well, sometimes), 90s star Jerry Seinfeld and, well, everything American Apparel, really. No longer does a uniform of skinny jeans, luxe boots and oversized coat suffice; nor does the ‘all black errythangg’ (cheers, Kanye), Emmanuelle Alt-esque aesthetic win you any brownie points. No. Normcore embraces the warmth of a Patagonia fleece as does Anna Dello Russo the charm of a furry Tom Ford number; it advocates the wearing of flannel shirts, but not how Hedi Slimane intended. So, to break down the trend and make it easier to digest, we’ve picked out five seemingly unflattering (but secretly stylish) pieces to add to your dad dressing equation, when going for normcore. From the slouchiest black pants to an unassuming Acne cap; we’ve got the untrendy trend covered. Buck the trend (literally), and shop the look below. Denim jacket: Moto sleeveless denim jacket, £38, available at Topshop. Cap: Acne Studios Clint Patch baseball cap, £90, available at Net-a-Porter. Sneakers: Brooks Addiction walking shoe, £76.64, available at Nordstrom. Pants: Casual trouser, £285, available at Y-3. Top: Getting Back To Square One Malibu sweatshirt, £221.29, available at Farfetch.

Rita Ora works two Moschino looks in London

Last Updated on 1st April 2014 When we saw Jeremy Scott unveil his debut collection for Moschino back in February, we knew that we would be seeing the boldest of fashionistas braving his pop culture influenced designs. Katy Perry and Anna Dello Russo have already stepped out in designs from the Moschino autumn/winter 2014 collection – and owned them, may we add – but Rita Ora is giving it a jolly good go, too. The singer rocked not one but two outfits from the recent Moschino collection – rocking them both with ease, as expected. Rita had some fun with her sartorial choice while promoting her new single I Will Never Let You Down in London’s Leicester Square by donning the Spongebob Squarepants jumper dress and teaming it with some matching shoes and an infectious smile! She then smarted up at the Kiss FM studios by wearing the high waisted red trousers with a cute pale yellow blouse that paid homage to everyone’s favourite fast food chain, McDonalds. We can’t help but love both of these looks; which one is your favourite?

Anya Hindmarch Swan Vestas Imperial matchbox clutch: Yay or Nay?

Last Updated on 17th March 2014 We’re digging’ it because… Who wouldn’t love a fashionable spin on household essentials? After making us drool at the household essentials-gone-haute accessories collection for autumn/winter ’14, a rather covered style from the Anya Hindmarch spring/summer ‘14 collection has landed on our radar. Enter the Swan Vestas Imperial matchbox clutch. With its gold metal framed box style encased in luxe printed python, and grey lizard top and bottom panels, you’d be forgiven for thing it was the Queen Bee of the clutch collective! Tempted to take it home? Read on. Why we’re totally saying yay… Luxe investment: If you’re looking to splash major monies on your next handbag treat, then the Swan Vestas clutch is right there with the best of them. A luxury exterior paired with stunning detail is a winning combination, didn’t you know? Great for accessorising day or night: Now that the evening clutch rule has long been forgotten, add interest to a simple day look with this conversation-starting option, and you’re sure to win a few fashion fans. Easy to style: Given that neutral tones of grey, white and gold are paired together, you won’t struggle to style this clutch with your wider wardrobe. Sometimes, the Anna Dello Russo approach to colour isn’t always the best way. And, erm, maybe nay… Price: Yes, it’s sadly a little (OK, very) steep. *Cough* £1,295 *Cough* Trend-centric appeal: We blame Charlotte Olympia and Sophia Webster for further fueling our love for statement-making (literally) clutch bags. A coveted book cover or phrase is great, but can you sniff a repeat wear? Size: Sadly, a matchbox clutch is going to live up to its name, right? Although it’s bigger than an actual Swan matchbox, you won’t get past squeezing the bare essentials in. If you’re after […]

Fausto Puglisi two-tone dress: Yay or Nay?

It’s fabulous because… No one does glamour better than the Italians, (hello, Milan Fashion Week!), and this week’s designer hails from the midst of it all. Synonymous with sexy designs that scream personality, Fausto Puglisi’s creations have found red carpet fashion fans in everyone from Coco Rocha to Lily Collins and Rashida Jones. Given the affection for pastels on the spring/summer ’14 runways was pretty unmissable, we’re diggin’ this two-tone, silhouette-skimming jersey dress for more reasons than one! Cut from the softest jersey, the soft lilac and mint palette and knee-grazing length make this an ideal dress for various occasions. Why were totally saying yay: Perfect for work or play: Wear it to work paired with a well-cut jacket and pumps, and swap for a leather biker and heels for after-work fun. Easy. Great price: Sitting pretty at £282, the price isn’t the heftiest of fees to pay for slither of Italian glam, right? Easy piece for various occasions: Be it date night, a summer wedding guest option or, even a holiday look; this dress promises to be a fit for all. And, erm, maybe nay Unforgiving silhouette: The downside to slipping into a dangerously-clingy dress is its unforgiving nature! Washboard abs and a miniscule waist aren’t everyone’s forte (and shouldn’t be, either), so consider this before investing. Difficult colour to style: A two-tone option can always throw us a little, so the best styling option sees like all black. Boring. Unless you are Anna Dello Russo, of course. One-hit wonder: Given its trend-centric colour palette, you could find yourself pushing this dress to the back of the wardrobe once the summer months pass. Fausto Puglisi two-tone jersey dress, £282, available at LuisaViaRoma.

5 Other unspeakable things that could happen in fashion

Do PRs not know the value of their lives (read: careers) anymore? Have they completely gone off their collective rockers, so to speak, and decided it’s time to shift Planet Fashion’s tectonic plates with a seating blunder? Well, that’s what happened, when The Anna Wintour was seated second row at the Valentino show earlier this week. SECOND row. Just take a few seconds to absorb that info-bomb. It was a moment carefully pointed out by Christina Binkley, fashion columnist for the Wall Street Journal, who was the first to Insta-capture the head turning moment, later responding to the influx of Instagram comments with: “Hey guys – she chose to sit second row. No one forced her. It was a gracious move.” Also, turns out, as reported by Fashionista, that seats for American publications at the show had been noticeably whittled down this year, which could explain the OMG bum-on-bench arrangement. But, still, is there a deeper meaning to Wintour’s shuffle back? Is she rewriting the ‘if you’re not front row, you don’t matter’ rule? And, above all, did she really give up her seat politely, or was it a cunning manoeuvre on Team Valentino PR’s part to get the conversation flowing beyond the dreamy clothes? Whilst you ponder the possibilities, here are five other unspeakable things that could happen in fashion, but haven’t so far. Phones at the ready, guys… Chanel swaps OTT shows for intimate presentations Just imagine: no glacial palaces or supermarket sweep layouts. If this happened, would it be the end of Chanel as we know it? Would Kaiser Karl and his ponytail lose their allure? Freebie riots aren’t fun in small spaces. Street style photographers slapped with a ban Imagine. JUST IMAGINE the possibilities of looking ‘normal’ at Fashion Week. Well, it would certainly take the […]

Alexander McQueen Heroine Studded Bowling Bag: Yay or Nay?

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 What’s a girl to do, if not to buy a handbag? Well, apart from ranting about it on social media, you could take a peak at this week’s Yay or Nay bag, which is certainly a sight to behold. Having pleased our eyeballs with previous iterations, the Heroine studded bowling bag by Alexander McQueen is quite the show-stopping accessory. Doing what arm candy was designed to do (make your friends fill up with lust-worthy bag-induced envy), the Heroine bowling bag shouts about your ‘out there’ personality like no other bag will. Call it the Anna Dello Russo of the handbag nation if you will, we’re pretty convinced this one’s not for the faint-hearted! Marrying soft edges with statement embellishment, the Heroine bag boasts a two-way carrying style and doesn’t compromise on carrying capacity, either. But being the beady-eyed bag purchasers we are, it isn’t so easy for a ‘just landed’ piece to weasel its way into our wardrobes. And before inviting it in to yours, why not check out the reasons we’re saying yes and no to the Heroine Studded bag below: Yay Practical: Offering spacious insides, a detachable shoulder strap and sturdy top handles for carrying, the Heroine studded bowling bag is a great option for dressing up a smarter look; slinging over your shoulder for a day out exploring the city, and leaving you with enough space to carry all your essentials. Colour: Black bags always make us air punch with excitement – because they pretty much go with everything in our wardrobes! Universally flattering, a black bag will never let you down. Luxe composition: Crafted in calf leather, with hand-stitched handles for durability, it certainly won’t disappoint in the quality department! Nay Price: Getting your mitts on this McQueen beauty means shelling […]

Sweating the small stuff: Is fashionable gym gear important?

Sometimes, a brow-raising snapshot of someone committing an act of foolishness in the name of fashion is all it takes to get mouths moving at HQ. And this week, we’re blaming our subtle rant on the woman who can effortlessly outdo Andre Leon Talley in bright pink socks and flat pumps: Anna Dello Russo. When Fashionista reported the street style siren had been captured on Instagram jogging with her friend-in-fashion, Giovanna Battaglia (who was relevantly dressed), wearing a complete runway look from the Dolce & Gabbana spring 2013 collection, we couldn’t quite comprehend the gravity of the matter. But it appears ADR’s high-intensity routine called for a high end outfit, and well, we wouldn’t expect anything else from ADR, really! Famed for not shying away from wearing a complete designer look when attending a corresponding show during fashion month, Anna left our mouths agape with her appetite for staying stylish, even when working up a smelly sweat (but does Queen Anna’s sweat even smell bad?), and forced the following question pop up in our ever enquiring minds: Is it really important to look fashionable when fighting the bulge? OK, so ADR may have taken the meaning of ‘fashionable’ to a whole other level, but does looking at this snapshot of ADR pounding the streets in current season wares (and potentially risking insulting her dear Dolce friends) up the pressure to stay stylish in the gym? Does it really matter that you’re sporting Stella McCartney x Adidas when doing the downward dog? The sports-luxe trend has helped enmesh the worlds of perspiration and pap-worthy fashion, but we all know it’s not about rocking a Wang mesh vest, or a Rihanna x River Island tank top when hitting the treadmill. As mother always said, sensibly does it nicely. But designers and celebrites aren’t […]

10 Essential basics under £100

Last Updated on 12th July 2013 If you turn to the style mavens of the industry, a common thread runs through their style and shopping habits (except for, maybe, Anna Dello Russo); curb the clothes hoarding, and mix and match more. The foundation of a stellar fashion wardrobe is simple: basics, and plenty of them.

Crafted to perfection cuts, luxe fabrics and multi-look, flattering tones are key when building a winning basics wardrobe, because these pieces will form the basis of your look, to which you can add accoutrements and up the glam ante.

The lightweight knit, £79.20: Ease into a day-to-night look with a stylish sweater in classic grey.

Is a brazen approach to the sheer trend inappropriate?

Last Updated on 27th May 2013 To boob, or not to boob? Well, that’s the question on our minds today, as we dissect a very brave fashionista’s take on one of spring/summer 2013’s biggest trends. Dangerously extrovert outfits and street style go hand in hand, and given the exhibitionist nature of some street style darlings, a little nip slip is the least of their worries. One of Mr. Newton’s latest camera lens victories (pictured above), Italian blogger and shop owner, Eleonara Carisi could certainly be forgiven for leaving her, erm, bra at home, given that the sheer trend dominated the runways this season. But is this an awkward visual, or do you think its fine? More importantly, is it wrong to sport no bra in the name of fashion? Whilst you ponder on this, let us remind you that every certified fashion name, from Dries Van Notes to 3.1 Phillip Lim and Haider Ackermann to Reed Krakoff dabbled in the next-to-nothing take on dressing. But sheer wasn’t simply transparent for spring 2013, instead given a more wearable quality thanks to a ‘veiled’ effect of layering and mixing fabrics. Well, it clearly wasn’t the way Eleanora had imagined translating this trend…. Without sounding too prudish (maybe it’s our inner Brit; we don’t know!), we were a little, well, taken aback by Eleonara’s breast display, and that too in the middle of New York, and not during Fashion Month either (see: exhibitionist note above). Seeing full-front boobage in glossy editorials is commonplace, and not an eyelid would bat at the sight of see-through featherweight fabrics swathed across barely-there bosoms on the runway, but what of a normal street style shot of a (normal) blogger in what appears to her to be a normal outfit? We don’t men to push it too far, […]

How do you spend Fashion Month?

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 Being a fashion enthusiast doesn’t necessarily make you a fashion insider. Much like the culture vulture who loves to comb through historical findings at museums for the sheer joy; the foodie who loves to consume food far more than cooking it, and the cosmetics hoarder who buys into the packaging rather than the actual benefits of the product, an unhealthy interest in fashion doesn’t amount to instant editorship. Mother Nature’s unmatched force couldn’t bring to a standstill the dressed-for-purpose fashionistas out in full force for New York Fashion Week, and we expect much of the same unfortunate weather (and fashion action) this side of the pond, warranting sludge-proof heels and frostbite dodging ensembles to combat the climes. Not that weather equating to a mini natural disaster could stop the fash pack from dressing up to the nines. But it isn’t just about the clothes. After all, Fashion Month is like any other month of ‘observance’, if you will. The parties, the social media pandemonium and seat allocation fiasco’s are next to none, and when you have images of super mum Victoria Beckham wearing a £2,000 handbag over her head instead of her arm (a symptom of sheer pre-Fashion Week stress), it begs to question whether the perceived glamorous pace of fashion week is really all that it is made out to be. Social media is like the fashion world’s fridge, full of annoying reminders and important titbits that make devouring the collections rolling onto the runway all the more essential. Show notes and seasonal trend hash tags aside, editors moaning about flight delays, everyone’s-Testino-now ‘selfie’ shots depicting OOTD’s (outfit of the day) and gluttonous updates about privileged seats and fashion friends are also the culprits for fuelling Fashion Month’s four week reign over our […]

Krysten Ritter vs. Delta Goodrem: Who wore Christian Dior better?

Last Updated on 19th December 2012 Show us a raspberry pink dress, and we’re there. If it’s a raspberry pink Christian Dior dress, we’re obsessed! And that’s exactly how we feel about this week’s one-dress-two-girls situation. Don’t Trust the B***** In Apartment 23 star, Krysten Ritter and Aussie songstress Delta Goodrem both donned the same Fall 2012 Christian Dior dress merely weeks apart, and both leading ladies brought their own. Krysten was first in line, wearing the gorgeous tulle pleated skirt dress to a Pre-Emmy party in West Hollywood, back in September. Krysten opted for black panties under the sheer skirt, and finished off her look with Jimmy Choo heels and clutch, diamond earrings and raspberry stained lips. Last month, Delta wore said dress to the Melbourne Cup in Australia. Unlike Krysten, Delta opted for a lined skirt, accessorising with nude ballet flats (worn due to an injury) and a rather interesting floral headpiece. Glossy waves, a rosy complexion and dark nails completed her look. Well picking this week’s fash-off champ isn’t much of a difficult task… Delta’s cranial flower garden-cum-headpiece is nothing short of RIDICULOUS. We’d expect to see it in a fashion editorial, maybe, or on Anna Dello Russo’s head during Fashion Month, but at a sporting event? Really? From the face down, this look is fabulous, and we think the flats work nicely with the dress’s balletic silhouette. But Krysten’s tough take on this pretty dress is the real scene stealer here. We love the choice of dark underwear and her side-sweeping bangs looks fab, too! The grey heels are a little drab, but top marks for making us sit up and notice this look! This week’s fash-off winner, hands down! Whose look do you prefer?

Your top 5 party season dilemmas solved

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 The Christmas tree is out, the smell of mulled wine is wafting through the house and you’ve already binged on one too many mini mince pies (they’re mini so it doesn’t count, right?). All of these festive activities can only mean one thing: party season has well and truly arrived and it’s time to get your wardrobe in check! Stylish soireés aplenty, you’re probably fighting your way through a scrum of eager Christmas shoppers in weird winter gear to get to that perfect party dress or bag, but party season can also give rise to a whole load of sartorial situations that require a speedy and stylish solution. So, as an early Christmas present to you, we’ve answered your top party season dilemmas to ensure your social calendar works out swimmingly, without the added worry of suffering a last minute sartorial glitch! (Sorry, but we can’t do anything about the painfully unfunny cracker jokes.) Problem: “I have a few parties to attend, but I don’t want to wear high heels. What other party-appropriate options are available?” Solution: It’s good news for heel-dodgers all round because entry to the latest hip party no longer depends on how many inches you can teeter in! Take your shoe inspiration from British Style Award winner, Alexa Chung, who’s rarely spotted in anything other than stylish flats and low heels. Give sky high heels a miss and pair your party dress with uber-stylish, ladylike kitten heels. But if you want to go completely heel-less, opt for a pair of for glitter-splashed, girly flats for added wow factor (minus the ‘oww!’ factor)! Problem: “I want to stylishly block out the winter chill!” Solution: Covering up when stepping out in your party gear doesn’t have to equal frumpy. There are several […]

Do blogger-brand collaborations put you off?

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 A tried-and-tested method of sorts, but when I typed ‘famous’ into Google, the predictive results function threw ‘famous fashion blogs’ at me as its first choice. Rather apt, considering today’s rant discussion revolves around the high rolling profile world of fashion blogger and major brand collaborations. Once considered desperately dressed-for-attention offshoots of serious magazine editors, fashion bloggers are now an all-important cog in the fashion machine. The slightest mention of a particular brand or product on a popular blog can cause insane levels of traffic to be driven to said blog, not to mention the hike in sales some retailers benefit from (point in case: Astley Clarke in China). Recent popular brand-blogger collaborations have seen the likes of Emily Johnston of Fashion Foie Gras team up with Coach, and Elin Kling became the first blogger in the world to collaborate with H&M; more recently, partnering up with Nelly and Guess by Marciano to design more collections. Serial snapper and other half of The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman, Garance Doré, landed a design deal with Kate Spade, whilst Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller – focusing on fashion that, well, repels men – recently teamed up with Dannijo on a jewellery collection. But no blogger-brand team discussion would be complete without referring to quasi-blogger/ street style celebrity Anna Dello Russo’s collaboration with H&M.  The editor-at-large of Vogue Nippon’s ostentatious displays of accessory affection has street style bloggers and photographers falling over their DSLRs to snap up her every Fashion Month move. But it was whilst perusing the Gala Gonzalez for Mango collection online, a few days ago, that I was struck with a question: Does the name of a blogger splashed all over a favourite high end/high street brand collection put you off buying into it?

Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Naomi Campbell (& more) get the Disney treatment for Barneys

Last Updated on 13th November 2012 As part of the epic collaboration between Disney and Barneys this Christmas, a short film entitled Electric Holiday is due to be played on LED screens around the Madison Avenue flagship store from tomorrow! The film follows protagonist Minnie Mouse as she embarks on a dreamy Paris Fashion Week adventure, and crosses paths with a host of the fashion industry’s hottest names… Some of the recognisble faces in the film include Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Daphne Guinness, Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle Alt, Franca Sozzani, Anna Dello Russo, Naomi Campbell and Cathy Horyn, most of whom can be found sitting FROW watching the catwalk action. Minnie Mouse also gets her make-up done by Pat McGrath before being photographed by Steven Meisel, while Balenciaga’s Nicolas Ghesquière ensures Mickey Mouse is ready for his close-up too. We can’t fault the designer/celeb transformations; who is your favourite so far? Stay tuned for the full video… [WWD]

Be loud and proud in this season’s hottest statement earrings!

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 Consider yourself the Anna Dello Russo of accessories? If so, those ears are in for a treat – and no, we’re not referring to ADR crooning Fashion Shower at the top of her vocal range! Let us introduce you to the wonders of the statement earring: Rapidly kicking the embellished collar and necklace off their respective pedestals, statement earrings are your go-to add-on for an instant outfit lift. And the good news is, you’re not confined to only wearing statement earrings with evening wear. Instead, pair them with a cosy knit and tailored trouser to take work wear from boring to bold, or wear them with your favourite biker jacket for a feminine twist on a tough off-duty look.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s simple sophistication in Calvin Klein

Last Updated on 16th October 2012 Yesterday Marion Cotillard gave Dior’s latest ready-to-wear collection its red carpet debut, and now it looks like Sarah Jessica Parker has done the same for  Calvin Klein. SJP attended Elle‘s Women in Hollywood Celebration in Beverly Hills last night, wearing a pale grey dress hot off the spring/summer 2013 runway. The event was attended by a bevy of gorgeous women from the likes of Emma Stone to Lea Michele (they looked phenomenal too, may we add) but there’s something about the sheer simplicity of Sarah’s outfit that has us hooked. The former Carrie Bradshaw could have over-accessorised with chunky Anna Dello Russo approved jewellery or a contrasting piece of arm candy, but we’re glad she let the dress and her simple, sleek hairstyle do all the talking. One of our favourite Sarah Jessica Parker looks of the year, we think!

Leigh Lezark vs. Daisy Lowe in Topshop Unique!

Last Updated on 4th October 2012 We find nothing more exciting than when celebs favour high street wares! Reasons: 1) We can buy them too, and, 2) they wear them so well, it’s almost high end minus the painful price tag!   So when we laid eyes on this week’s fashionably forward duo, who sported the same Topshop Unique a/w’12 handknit cross jumper to different events, we were beyond ourselves with excitement!   Excitement because we knew the jumper in question would be a hot favourite with the fash pack as soon as it appeared on the Unique runway back in February and, also, because superstar DJ and all round fashion darling Leigh Lezark and Brit model Daisy Lowe put their personal spin on the fabulous piece.   Daisy sported the statement Unique jumper to, surprise surprise, sit pretty on the FROW at the Topshop Unique s/s’13 show during London Fashion Week last month. She daringly took inspiration from the original catwalk look and teamed the knit with bare legs, wedge calf-length boots and added a cute backpack and a long coin necklace to the mix.   Leigh was spotted in the Unique jumper at the Anna Dello Russo x H&M launch in Paris last month, and opted for a similar look to Daisy’s, however she opted for (visible) leather shorts, pointed knee-high boots and a chain strap shoulder bag.   Can you see our predicament? Ton between two similar looks, both on super stylish women and both so good?! But, as always, there can only be one sartorial prize snatcher…   Fash-off champion: Both ladies pulled of the Unique cross jumper with aplomb, but we do love a darer when it comes to turning conventional dressing on its head. Although Leigh’s look works, it’s a safe choice in comparison […]

Lady Gaga rocks Versace like a pro!

Last Updated on 3rd October 2012 We love everything about this picture. We love how Lady Gaga is striking a fierce pose while doing her trademark monster claw and how Donatella Versace is obviously very tickled by it. We love Lady G’s brunette hair and the gorgeous intricate red Versace dress she is wearing, and how she colour-coordinated it perfectly with her lips and nails. So in a nutshell: we love her look! The only person more over-the-top than Donatella Versace (apart from maybe Anna Dello Russo) is Lady Gaga, so we get very excited when we see the pair of them together. Mother Monster has received some flack for “piling on the pounds” these days, but she is rocking this figure-hugging dress like a trooper, so we have no idea where all these unnecessary “fat” jibes are coming from. *Dismounts soap box*

Milan Fashion Week SS13 highlights – Part 4

Last Updated on 25th September 2012 So Milan Fashion Week is over for yet another season, but not before we’ve had a chance to glance at and digest the final looks from the spring/summer 2013 catwalks. Roberto Cavalli and Dsquared² ensured that MFW finished off in style, as they both presented gorgeous – but very different – collections. We loved everything Dsquared² presented this season – both of Cara Delevingne’s looks in particular were real highlights for us. We’d probably have to give up carbs for life to rock some of the skimpier, more risqué outfits, but the show has certainly given us a lot to think about. Layered chunky accessories Anna Dello Russo style, some Fifty Shades of Grey inspired bondage pieces, structured garments, loud shoulder pads – we can definitely incorporate all of this into our new season wardrobes. Another Fashion Month fave for sure! On the other scale of the spring/summer 2013 collections, Roberto Cavalli went for graceful, elegant and angelic – a real contrast to his edgier, more contemporary and playful Just Cavalli line that we showed you yesterday. Just because it had an angelic opening though, doesn’t mean it was all innocence… au contraire, the latter part of the show comprised of all-black pieces with a very sexy edge to them. It brought new meaning to the term “cut-out”. Plus there was far too much skin on show for it to ever really be deemed pure. Still, a gorgeous collection from a brilliant man… the perfect way to close Milan Fashion Week!

5 stylish accessories every woman should own!

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 Outfit ‘gellers’, closet completers, or wardrobe ‘uniters’: however you prefer to address them, stylish accessories are the cornerstone of an accomplished wardrobe. Fashionably educated women understand that breathtaking looks are perfectly fine and all, but stepping out sans apt accessories to complement an outfit is, well, pretty much like stepping out naked, really! OK, so this may sound extreme, but it holds true that accessories are often responsible for drawing the eyes of fashion conscious onlookers to a particular person’s style. (That conversation-starting clutch; the gasp-inducing, fashion editor-huddling statement necklace, anyone?) Fashion Week street style photography is testament to this, as are the mounting numbers of pages dedicated solely to accessories that are popping up in our favourite glossies. So, what does the perfect accessory-drobe consist of? On-trend, limelight stealing knickknacks (cue: Anna Dello Russo’s accessory-dripping appearances during Fashion Month), or a tightly edited collection of classic go-to pieces you heavily rely on when an outfit needs a little edge? Bring yourself back from accessory free-fall with our quick guide to 5 stylish accessories every woman well versed in the world of fashion should own. 1. The All-purpose Sunnies No discerning style maven is without her sunnies, be it rain or shine! No longer the preserve of sunny days, sunglasses are toys for grown ups, and so the more fun had with these, the better! Opt for a classic, all-rounder shape in a fun hue for sunnies that add instant glam to an off-duty look. House of Harlow Robyn round-frame acetate sunglasses, £110 £55, available at The Outnet 2. The Classic Bag This classic style tote is the perfect outfit hopper. Flitting between chic and functional; the roomy interior, detachable shoulder strap and minimal hardware detailing means you’ll carry your life’s contents on your arm (or shoulder) without compromising a […]

Autumn wedding guest outfit picks for the petite lady!

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 [noskim] Everyone loves a good summer wedding. But let’s face it, summer weddings in England are very few and far between, which is why happy couples continue to plan their big day in the autumn/winter season… at least you know what you’re getting weatherwise and won’t be kidding yourselves. So with that in mind, we’ve been seeking out some wedding-appropriate outfits should any of our friends decide to do a Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds and tie the knot any time soon. If like me you’re slightly vertically challenged and are lacking in height, Precis is one of the best ports of call for finding gorgeous petite clothing. We can’t all have Kate Moss legs (sniff)! Here’s a few of my current faves on the website: Autumn Bloom Shift Dress I utterly adore this Autumn Bloom Shift Dress. It has two of the new season’s hottest colours – purple and orange – and has a gorgeous waist defining belt too. I’d pair it with some super-high orange platforms if I’m feeling bold or nude ones if I want the dress to do all the talking and a simple nude/grey shawl to complement the colours. Spot Print Jersey Dress If it’s a fellow-Greek wedding I’ll be attending, I know I’m going to be doing a lot (and I really do mean a lot) of eating, so I’m going to want a dress that lets me do that without restriction. This Spot Print Jersey Dress with its Diane von Furstenberg wrap-style detailing is perfect – and the busy design is wonderfully distracting! I’d definitely wear this with some Anna Dello Russo style bright and chunky accessories! Navy Satin Dress There’s something very Kate Middleton about this dress which is probably why I was instantly drawn to […]

Kirsten Dunst vs. Isla Fisher in Stella McCartney

Self proclaimed Lady Gaga of fashion week, Anna Dello Russo makes it quite clear in her pop video Fashion Shower, that if somebody is wearing the same outfit as you, ‘wonderful, you did the right choice.’ But what if you end up sat across someone sporting the same designer as you, albeit in a different version? Well, Bachelorette starlets Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher found themselves in this very sartorial situ, as they donned two different outfits by the same designer for the New York premiere of the film. Both ladies opted for Stella McCartney, with Kirsten taking a kooky approach to red carpet dressing in matching shorts and boxy t-shirt, whilst Isla stuck to the vanilla side of red carpet style in a sequined, knee-length dress. We do love a darer on the red carpet, and Kirsten’s short-tee duo from the Resort 2013 collection is a hardcore front-runner for Fash-off! champion this week. We love the dewy make up, power pout and glossy-but-mussed hair, and the mustard ankle strap Chloé heels round off the look rather nicely. Although its not the first time we’ve come across this stylish concoction on the red carpet, it makes for a positive change and totally proves Kirsten’s point: Hey, bore offs, this outfit can look just as great as a dress, if not better. On the other hand, Isla tended to our love for all things bedecked in sequins, and there’s no denying her embellished Stella McCartney dress is beautiful. But it’s also a classic (read: familiar) red carpet look, and a bit too vanilla for our liking. Although beautifully accessorised with Stella McCartney sandals and a Fred Leighton clutch, the overall look is a little yawn-inducing. We love the side-swept hair, evening eyes and soft lip, but it’s just not living-on-the-edge-of-sartorial-glory enough for […]

Couture Fashion Week: Christian Dior autumn/winter 2012

Last Updated on 3rd July 2012 Never has a catwalk collection been more anticipated than the Christian Dior Haute Couture autumn/winter 2012 one that took place in Paris yesterday. The first collection shown by John Galliano’s successor was inevitably always going to be, but we don’t think Raf Simons let the nerves get the better of him. The new Creative Director presented a clean, fresh and downright beautiful Haute Couture collection that combined the true essence of the Christian Dior brand with the flare of femininity, romanticism, and contemporary edginess that he brought to Jil Sander. We bet Raf Simons was really feeling the pressure though, as the hottest names in fashion turned up to witness his first show. Donatella Versace, Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour and Anna Dello Russo were all on the front row watching with very beady eyes! What do you think of Raf Simons’ first duties for Christian Dior?

Lana Del Rey for H&M?

Last Updated on 25th June 2012 According to the New York Post, H&M has signed Lana Del Rey to be the face of a brand new advertising campaign which is reportedly going to be shot in New York. Akin to all H&M rumours though, nothing has been officially confirmed… “There is always a lot of speculation on our upcoming campaigns and collaborations and we do not like to comment on rumours,” a spokesperson for H&M told British Vogue. “We have lots of exciting H&M campaigns coming up this autumn and we will announce these at the start of the new season.” H&M does indeed have a lot of exciting stuff lined up these next few months. We’re already looking forward to the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collaboration, as well as that OTT Anna Dello Russo accessories line, but Lana working with one our fave high street stores really would be the cherry on top! Lana has been signed to Next Model Management after all, so it would be nice to see her do some posing! Do you think the Video Games singer would make a good ambassador for H&M?

British fashion reigns at the Met Ball

Last Updated on 3rd May 2011 For an event that usually champions the best of American fashion, last night’s Met Ball saw a surprising amount of stars wearing gowns from British designers. Perhaps it was a nod towards last night’s honouree, the late Alexander McQueen, who’s life and work was celebrated in an accompanying exhibition, Savage Beauty, or maybe the world hasn’t quite recovered from royal wedding fever just yet – but either way, the Brits ruled the red carpet. Dressing the most celebs was Stella McCartney – also clad in her own label – who decked out an impressive 14 stars in her dresses (save a jumpsuit for Iman), including Rihanna, Naomi Watts, Eva Mendes, Maggie Gyllenhaal and BFFs Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Thandie Newton and Madonna. Also high up on the most-spotted list was, unsurprisingly, Alexander McQueen. Sarah Burton wore a white dress by her own design to honour her friend and mentor, while Daphne Guinness, Naomi Campbell, Gisele, Coco Rocha, Anna Dello Russo, Karen Elson, Racquel Zimmerman and Salma Hayek and Sarah Jessica Parker all paid tribute to the designer. And the list of Brits doesn’t stop there – Erdem dressed Lily Donaldson in a floor-length navy lace gown, Burberry bagged Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to wear a satin rose gown and nude python clutch, and Alexa Chung wore new-season Christopher Kane. Stay tuned for our round-up of the best and worst dressed from last night’s Met Ball.

Steep vs Cheap: Wide-leg trouser

Last Updated on 20th October 2013 The angelic brilliance of crisp whites and linen creams embraced this season’s catwalks as ambitiously as their colour block counterparts, and there’s only one way we want to wear them. The new black in fashion editors’ wardrobes and channelling heady Seventies glamour with a modern twist, wide leg trousers in shades of white and ecru exude versatility and effortless chic, making them a must-have investment for the style conscious.

Despite the lofty couture price tag of £1,570, it’s difficult to dismiss the luxurious strides we could take in a pair of these all summer.

But for those of us not blessed with a clothing allowance resembling Anna Dello Russo’s, Maxmara is our spring saviour. Cashing in on a less pricey version with an equal footing in the style stakes, Maxmara’s linen wide leg trousers deliver the perfect punch to brighten up your spring wardrobe.

Stars come out for Lanvin’s H&M launch

Last Updated on 19th November 2010 It seems the Pierre Hotel was the place to be in New York last night as Alber Elbaz invited some of his celebrity friends to celebrate the US launch of his highly-anticipated Lanvin for H&M collection – but this was a catwalk show with a difference.

Victoria Beckham and Alicia Keys in Victoria Beckham Fall 2012

Last Updated on 31st October 2012 Powerhouses in their respective fields, but this week’s fash off women unite in the fashion world. Alicia Keys and Victoria Beckham both sported the same military-inspired dress from VB’s Fall 2012 collection, albeit a few months apart. And once again we’re left with the impossible task of selecting a stylish winner from between the two stunners! First up was the maker of the dress herself (natch), Victoria Beckham, who wore said dress to the Spice Girls’ Viva Forever press conference back in June, held at the iconic St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel, where the former band’s video ‘Wannabe’ was shot. Sticking firmly with her signature look and pose, Mrs. Becks styled her creation with a leather belt, knee high, peep-toe Tom Ford boots, a mussed up low ponytail and a missing smile, (we do love you VB, but please smile!). Giving the dress a fresh lease of life was top crooner Alicia Keys, who wore it to the launch of interactive storytelling app ‘The Journals of Mama Mae & LeeLee’ held in New York City. Sporting a cute side swept bob cut; fresh faced Alicia styled the VB dress, sans leather belt, with silver toe-cap pumps and a slick of pink colour on her lips. A Victoria Beckham design always spells near perfection, and both Alicia and the VB looked amazing in their own ways. But come on, who doesn’t love a fresh take on a cult classic? It nearly always excites us to see celebs in a VB creation just to see their take on styling it, and this time Alicia firmly secures our fash off vote! Alicia’s belt-free, curve-skimming version gives the dress an almost demure, 50s appeal, and we’re definitely curve champions! The military trend can be a little too strong […]
