As we all know, the end of Gossip Girl is sadly nigh, as the last episode will hit our screens in just a few weeks’ time. (How will we cope without Serena, Blair and friends? The future is looking bleak!) However there is a small silver lining. To commemorate the end of the series, Jennifer Behr, the designer behind some of Blair Waldorf’s most iconic headbands, is giving us the chance to own some of the special pieces either individually or through one almighty gift pack. The hairbands don’t come cheap though, which is hardly surprising given Blair’s wealth and status, especially the coveted black and crystal Queen B headband that was given to Little J Jenny Humphrey at the end of Season 3. If you want to get your hands on aforementioned Queen B headband, you will have to part with $4,000 (no we didn’t add some extra zeros, we really do mean 4,000 big ones!) and snap up the Gift Set, which will get you the piece and eight other Blair Waldorf classics. If you don’t want to part with that much cash though (can’t say we blame you), then the individual pieces have a much more affordable price tag. A cream double rosette headwrap costs $152, while a neon orchid skinny headband could be yours for $225. Click here to check out all of the headbands and their prices. Tempted? [Images]Read More

Watch Alexa Chung’s Gossip Girl cameo
Americans must be quite fond of Alexa Chung, as she seems to be spending a lot of time over there these days. While she’s been in the States, Alexa’s been to many a high profile fashion event, shown her support for Barack Obama by taking part in a public service announcement video, and of course, filmed a cameo appearance for Gossip Girl. Alexa’s episode aired in the US earlier this week, and thanks to some technological wiz-kids, it’s already available to watch online. We don’t know a great deal about the context of her appearance, but she seems to be taking part in a fashion show that Leighton Meester’s character Blair Waldorf is organising. But in true Gossip Girl fashion, it doesn’t seem to have gone according to plan… Check out the amusing clip below and let us know what you make of Alexa’s acting talents. Season 6 of Gossip Girl is on ITV2 at 7pm every Wednesday.Read More
Blake Lively and Leighton Meester rock Georges Chakra and Elie Saab for Gossip Girl
To celebrate Gossip Girl returning to our screens tonight for what will be the sixth and final season (we promised we wouldn’t get emotional, but excuse us while we bring the Kleenexes closer just in case) we’ve decided to feature the Princesses of the Upper East Side in our daily celeb style feature. And Princesses they certainly are, as both Blake Lively and Leighton Meester put on their finest couture while filming their latest scenes for the show. Blake looked sublime in a metallic and white Georges Chakra Couture gown from the Spring 2011 collection, while Leighton Meester looked as chic and elegant as always in a blue Elie Saab Couture creation. We have no idea what’s in store for their respective characters Serena and Blair, but we predict it’s going to be as scandalous as always! Gossip Girl is on ITV2 at 8pm tonight – will you be tuning in? [Image]Read More
Blake Lively is beautiful in blue Marc by Marc Jacobs for Gossip Girl
We have to all accept that pretty soon we’re going to have to kiss a long and painful goodbye to Gossip Girl, and as a result, brand new pics of the cast on the set will no longer exist. So, we’re making the most of it while it lasts! Blake Lively was “spotted” (said in our finest Gossip Girl American accent) on Madison Avenue in Manhattan yesterday in a gorgeous summery-blue Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, which was relatively modest in length but very daring at the top by way of a plunging neckline. It really goes to show how much Serena van deer Woodsen’s style has evolved over the years, doesn’t it? Blake/Serena teamed her dress with some coral Christian Dior platform sandals, which makes a nice change from the Christian Louboutins the actress wears when she’s not on set. The giant bag also adds to the overall wow-factor of the outfit, making this another style triumph for our favourite blonde Upper East Sider. Are you looking forward to the new (and final – sniff) season of Gossip Girl?Read More

Anna Sui, no longer a Gossip Girl?
Anna Sui’s latest line of clothes may no longer be inspired by ‘Gossip Girl’. The fashion designer had been planning to base her range for US store Target on the hit US teen drama. But bosses are said to be unsure about the idea because of the programme’s controversial storylines. A source said: “One of Target’s top executives got nervous about being that closely associated with the show, given the debauchery its characters get into.” ‘Gossip Girl’ is famed for its raunchy storylines, with characters regularly drinking alcohol, having sex and visiting strip clubs. Scenes for the show were set to be filmed in Anna’s flagship store and models wearing her Target range were going to be used as extras, but the store has reportedly pulled out at the last minute.Read More
Gossip Girl works 80s style
We all know that 80s bad taste is the trend of the season, and we know that Gossip Girl is a great way to get a fashion fix. For American viewers, last night saw the first flashback scene of Serena’s mother Lily van der Woodsen as a bright young thing back in the 80s, or to many the decade fashion forgot. We see little Lily played by Brittany Snow trying on a whole host of 80s fashions. It was a little taste of things to come, the spin off doesn’t have a title yet, how about â€˜Material Girl? But the show will follow Lily during her wild days in LA.Read More
Move over Gossip Girl, Material Girl is here!
For any of you who have read Imogen Edward-Jones’ Fashion Babylon this will be very exciting news. For those of you who haven’t read Fashion Babylon, shame on you. To give you a little insight, Fashion Babylon is a book exposing all the naughty goings on in the fashion world. Imogen Edward-Jones has written other books including Hotel Babylon and Air Babylon, for all of these she is informed by anonymous insiders in these weird worlds in order to compile her books. Therefore all the shocking secrets are in fact truths, so if you love fashion it is a must read. But anyway, back to Material Girl, Material Girl is the BBC TV version of Fashion Babylon. It is a six part series and has cost a staggering £6 million to make. These images come straight from filming a photo shoot in Kensington Gardens last week.Read More
Gwen Stefani’s a Gossip Girl
If you could have heard the screams of excitement when we found out that Gwen Stefani is appearing in Gossip Girl you would have been deafened. What a fabulous piece of casting this is, the fashionista’s favourite show with the ultimate fashionista herselfâ€¦ perfection! Oh but it gets better, she will be appearing with her amazing band No Doubt! The band will appear in the last episode of the current series, which will air in the US on 11th May. The cameo will take place at an 80s themed party where they will play Adam and the Ants’ Stand And Deliver. The 80s theme is of great significance to Gossip Girl fans. For it was recently confirmed that Gossip Girl is getting its own spin off series set in that very decade.Read More
G-Day Has Arrived: The Return of Gossip Girl
At last, the day we’ve all been waiting for; Gossip Girl returns this Wednesday at 9pm on ITV2! Reunited once more with Serena, Blair, Chuck, Nate, Dan, Vanessa and Jenny, I can barely contain my excitement at the prospect of another season of Upper East Side drama, dresses and dead-pan one-liners. Since it’s debut in 2007, Gossip Girl has gone global, with its young cast dominating our screens and magazines: Blake Lively is this month’s Vogue US cover girl, Chace Crawford is Leona Lewis’ leading man in her new music video, Taylor Momsen has been signed to IMG, and Ed Westwick is, eh, snogging Drew Barrymore. But it’s not the stars that have most of us in a frenzy, it’s the fashion.Read More

“I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with The Spice Girls!” – Blake Lively, Marie Claire UK October
Whether we’re gushing about her latest red carpet appearance or just having a good old chinwag about current and potential Gossip Girl plots, you know we can’t resist a bit of Blake Lively! This is why we were ecstatic to find out that the leggy blonde fashionista is Marie Claire UK’s October cover girl! Now, some of you readers overseas might be scratching your heads wondering where you’ve seen these images before… and we’d hate to be the bearers of bad news, but you’re not Mystic Meg as Blake’s pics are in fact reprints. Sad face! Having said that however, we don’t actually care because a) we’ve not seen them on our shelves here in the UK and b) when can you ever really get enough Blake Lively? Never! Oh yeah, and did we mention she friggin’ loves The Spice Girls? “When I was a child I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with The Spice Girls,” she said. “I had the Buffalo shoes, a customised Baby Spice necklace – when I say custom made it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a Union Jack dress.” Blake, we didn’t think it was possible to love you anymore, but clearly we were wrong! Marie Claire UK‘s October issue is out right now… get it while it’s hot! Ps: huge congratulations to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, as they reportedly got married in secret at the weekend… more info when we get it!Read More
Alexa Chung gets girlie in floral Anna Sui
Alexa Chung and Janelle Monae, as well as a host of some of the biggest designers, have shown us that dressing like a man has never been hotter! It’s safe to say that our Alexa nails the androgyny trend better than most, but it’s also really refreshing to see her get girlie with her sartorial choices too. We saw a hint of feminine dressing when she hit up the Gossip Girl set for her cameo in the show (still very excited about that by the way!) but this time her Anna Sui floral playsuit from the spring/summer 2012 collection was all for her and not the cameras! Even though Alexa tried something different as she cycled around New York, she still stayed true to herself by wearing her favourite black Charlotte Olympia kitty flats, which add her own personal quirky stamp to an otherwise very girlie outfit. Plus, you only need to look at Choupette Lagerfeld to see how popular kitty cats are at the moment! Do you like Alexa’s playsuit or should she stick to a more boyish way of dressing? [Image]Read More
Mel C was our best dressed Spice Girl at yesterday’s Viva Forever! press call – who was yours?
Yesterday’s ‘Celebrity Style’ post was focused on the ever-gorgeous Blake Lively, so as much as we wanted to gush about the TWO beautiful Marchesa and Jenny Packham outfits she wore to The Late Show last night, we thought we’d give someone else a go in the style spotlight. It’s only fair, after all. So, from Gossip Girl to Spice Girl (see what we did there?) we present you: Melanie Chisholm. Mel C, i.e. Sporty Spice, definitely gets our style gold medal for her immaculate appearance at yesterday’s press call for the announcement of the Viva Forever! musical. Don’t act like you’re not excited about it – we’ve seen you Googling the date of opening night! As usual, Victoria Beckham looked pristine, polished and you guessed it, posh, but did you honestly ever think you’d see Sporty Spice in an elegant white mullet dress? No. Exactly – hence why we are showing our appreciation for Mel C’s sartorial choice in the best way we know how. While we loved Emma Bunton’s cute style (we adore those Brian Atwood platforms!) and were quite fond of Geri Halliwell’s flirty (albeit slightly age inappropriate) dress and Mel B’s Lanvin number, Mel C gets our best-dressed vote without a doubt. We love a good fashion risk, and this white Acne dress was definitely one which paid off. Mel C is our best dressed, but who is yours? Vote now! [poll id=”352″] [Image]Read More
All the gossip from Britain’s Next Top Model Live
The first ever Britain’s Next Top Model Live exhibition took place this weekend at London’s impressive ExCel Centre, so with our press passes at the ready and dressed to perfection, the MFL girls were ready to embrace the life of a model. And in more ways than one… The weekend wasn’t spent entirely sipping champagne and browsing the vintage clothing stalls – oh no – us girls had to earn our keep and take centre stage at the Style Icon Workshop to give daily discussions on this season’s biggest trends. Our editor Emily took to the mic as the expert guest speaker giving a confident, funny and insightful look into this season’s camel, leopard print and shearling trends, and brought in a crowd of fashion-hungry girls (and, occasionally, guys) day after day while us interns simply posed on stage in our outfits – oh the hardship. In our free time we explored the wonders of fashion, beauty and music. The stalls were certainly varied, from Zandra Rhodes footwear, Jonathon Aston tights, Bourjois makeup to even teeth whitening, though we had to pass on the latter as the fear of the dentist suddenly took over. Free makeovers and hair styling were also on offer for a bit of well-deserved pampering, all thanks to the London College of Beauty and the world-famous stylist, Adee Phelan. Musical sensations Eliza Doolittle and Diana Vickers provided the lyrical entertainment, while BNTM judge Charlie Speed left many a young girl in a flutter with his live interview on the main Kiss Open Catwalk stage. However, we all agreed that the highlight of our weekend was witnessing the amazing Chyna Whyne in action (although the Tia Maria cocktail bar came a close second). Aside from her jaw-droppingly stunning appearance, the singer-turned-stilletto-master gave a hilarious insight into how […]Read More

Stunning Bridgerton Inspired Dresses You’ll Love – and the secret behind the amazing costume design
What did we do over the holiday period? Well, we umm ate loads, drank too much, and wished we’d binge-watched Bridgerton. ‘Cause actually we were kinda late to the party with this one. We only started watching Bridgerton after seeing so many of our lovely followers tweeting about the show. And oh man are we glad we checked it out ‘cause it really was sooo good. Produced by ShondaLand and based on Julia Quinn’s romance novels, Bridgerton is centered around the Bridgerton family. In particular the eldest daughter Daphne and her quest to find Prince Charming. It’s pretty much Downton Abbey meets Gossip Girl, complimented with fantastic music, stunning outfits and a huge dose of scandal. And it’s funny too. But best of all it was great to see proper diversity in a period drama. And yeah, it also didn’t hurt that Duke Hastings was so damn CUTE! Considering all the rubbish news we’ve had lately, Bridgerton was a welcome escape. We’ve just finished it and honestly, we can’t wait for season two. But in the meantime, we’re crushing on the outfits and searching for Bridgerton inspired dresses to wear as soon as the weather decides to warm up. Join us! First let’s have a look at some of the awesome fashion moments this season had to offer. Best fashion moments Set in the Regency era, as you would expect the dresses in Bridgerton are predominantly embroidered empire-waist gowns, with each character sporting a signature colour or print to define their character’s personality. However unlike the fashion in the Regency era, if you notice there’s not a bonnet insight in the drama. And what made the costume design so successful? Rather than drawing inspiration just from the Regency era, costume designer for the show, Ellen Mirojnick took inspo from the […]Read More
Rocking The Glam Goth Style
The Gothic outfits people are wearing nowadays are quite different from the ones worn in the past. Back in the ‘70s people were looking like vampires when they rocked this style, but now they look like having a unique fashion sense. Nowadays it is something normal people to prefer black, when it comes to clothing articles. The glam gothic style is a little different from the traditional gothic one, because it combines two different styles, the gothic and the glamorous one. People who prefer this style include in their outfits bright colours not only dark hues, and they even combine gothic elements with androgynous ones. The main fashion icons of this style are Marilyn Manson and Dita Von Teese. But they are not the only ones who inspired people to try this style, other celebrities also preferred to sport unique outfits. Dita Von Teese It is important to start with Dita Von Teese, because she is the fashion icon women around the world still admire, and she is the source of inspiration for millions of women. She is famous for her black curled hair. However the curls are not traditional ones but glam curls, that combined with red lipstick and gothic outfits help her impress everyone wherever she goes. She was and she still is considered one of the sexiest women on Earth, and we think that many years from how she will be seen like one of the most beautiful women of the world, because she seems to not get old, as the years pass. Her glam curls are her trademark, but it does not mean that you cannot achieve the same look. You only need a little practice, quality GHD curlers and some hairspray. Angelina Jolie Angie is also considered one of the most beautiful women on the […]Read More
Blake Lively is pregnant with her first child, reveals baby bump in adorable pic!
Huge congratulations this morning to one of the hottest A-list couples in Hollywood – Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds – as it’s just been announced that the pair are expecting their first child. Amazing news to kick-start the week! We don’t think former Gossip Girl star Blake Lively will be concealing her baby bump like Eva Mendes, as she already posted a pic of it to her Preserve website, along with the following statement… “Preserve at its core is about family. Family is the single word our founder, Blake built this home on. We have something for men, for women, for the old, but we realized we don’t have anything for the new. With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all—to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; at the creation of family. Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby’s souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all.” “We had too much fun with this,” Blake continued. “Because there’s so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives. Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there. And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family.” Aww – is that not one of the cutest ways of revealing a pregnancy? Congratulations to Blake and Ryan once again – no doubt we will see the expectant mummy in some killer maternity outfits in the next few months, […]Read More
Leighton Meester covers InStyle UK November, talks about THAT Robin Thicke collaboration
Oh, Leighton Meester, how we have missed you! The former Gossip Girl star and new Mrs Adam Brody (we’re still shocked by this relationship/secret marriage!) is the beautiful cover star of InStyle UK’s November issue… and we couldn’t be happier to welcome her back into our lives! As well as promoting her role in The Judge alongside Robert Downey Jr (out on the silver screen on October 24, FYI), Leighton is also on the promotional trail for her new album Heartstrings. We can’t wait to see her musical talent shine! Although she made a record with Robin Thicke back in 2009 which she said wasn’t really “her”, we think the new album will definitely be Leighton all over… “It was fun, but it wasn’t at all me,” she said of her collaboration with Robin Thicke. “I guess I can look back and say everything happens because you learn from it and you’re better for it. “My favourite thing – at least as far as the music goes, and now, actually, with acting, too – is performing live. It’s so fun.” Does that mean we can expect a Heartstrings tour in the not-so-distant future? Watch this space! In the meantime, you can pick up InStyle UK’s November issue from newsstands right now to read more of Leighton’s interview and see her stunning editorial pictures. Welcome back, Leighton!Read More
Blake Lively helps Marie Claire US celebrate its 20th birthday with stunning September issue cover
Who does Marie Claire US get to help it celebrate its 20th birthday? It obviously had to be someone good; someone with huge selling power and a huge presence in the fashion industry. And that someone is none other than former Gossip Girl Blake Lively. And what a fabulous cover it is, too! As you can imagine, Blake Lively has the perfect body, hair, attitude, and pretty much everything else that is needed to showcase fashion’s hottest threads, and that’s exactly what she does in her accompanying editorial. She also tells the mag everything about her partnership with Gucci, her brand new website Preserve, and of course, more deets about her relationship with husband Ryan Reynolds. “We’ve never gone a week without seeing each other,” she said. “There’s no major decision that I make without him. The best part is when we turn off our phones and just talk and hang out. He’s my best, best friend. What do you do with your best friend? You do nothing.” Aww, don’t they sound adorable? The Marie Claire US September issue hits newsstands on August 19th, so not that long to wait to read the interview in full and gaze (in awe) at Blake’s pictures.Read More
Blake Lively’s 73 question challenge for American Vogue August issue
American Vogue has once again given meaning to that “save the best ‘til last” phrase as it debuted it August 2014 issue featuring the one and only Blake Lively. How good does she look on the cover? We definitely think it’s been worth the wait! The former Gossip Girl actress was shot by Mario Testino for the publication’s annual Age Issue, and looked the epitome of perfection in the process. As well as looking phenomenal in each and every one of her pictures (standard!), the actress, Gucci ambassadress and style maven opened up about pretty much everything thanks to an epic 73 question challenge posed by the mag. Trust us, it’s a good’un! We learnt that she wore a coral dress to her prom, that she identifies with all the men in Sex and the City (interesting, especially as we always had her down as a Carrie Bradshaw), and what life with her and Ryan Reynolds is really like. We won’t spoil it for you, but prepare for lots of “ooh”ing and “aww”ing as it’s pretty darn adorable. Especially when you find out about the super personal gifts they give each other…Read More
Leighton Meester and new hubby Adam Brody hit the Tony Awards red carpet
We’ve been raving about her former Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively a lot these past few weeks, but now it’s finally Leighton Meester’s turn to get our sartorial praise. The actress and new Mrs Adam Brody (how cute are they as a couple by the way?) stole the show as she arrived at the Tony Awards, which were held at the world-famous Radio City Music Hall in New York City last night. Leighton wore an absolutely stunning white floor-length Antonio Berardi dress from the pre-fall 2014 collection on the red carpet, with an an Emm Kuo clutch bag and her gorgeous new hubby acting as her only accessories. We love the minimal approach Leighton took for this look, but most of all, we love the retro old Hollywood glamour hair style she chose for the occasion. It complements the dress and the rest of her make-up perfectly, which makes this look absolutely flawless from top to toe. What a great look to kick off the week; the standard has been set pretty high!Read More
The Met Gala 2014: The best dressed!
All the big names in fashion, film, and music gathered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last night, for the highly anticipated Met Gala! This year, the museum was honouring Charles James, and the dress-code was a very simple (albeit slightly “boring” according to Marc Jacobs) “white tie and decorations”. Anyone familiar with the work of Charles James would know that elegant eveningwear was his thing, so they wouldn’t have gone wrong by donning the finest couture pieces with some elegant jewels. There were many ladies who absolutely nailed their looks, while some probably should have stayed home. Stella McCartney had a big moment on the red carpet, dressing the likes of Rihanna and Reese Witherspoon so flawlesslessly for the event, in two very different but equally stunning dresses. Rihanna went for her signature sexy look, while Reese was a vintage glamour goddess. Selena Gomez also wowed on the red carpet for us, looking very mature for just 21 years old in a bold deep purple Diane von Furstenberg dress. We also love how Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were reunited at the Met Gala – they both looked amazing in their respective Gucci Premiere and Emilio Pucci dresses. Not all of the ladies went for full-length or ballgown dresses (like Hayden Panettiere who looked like a Princess!) though – Solange Knowles and Lena Dunham were just two of the stars who went for something a little bit shorter. The impact definitely wasn’t lost though. Here are our best dressed celebs from last night’s Met Gala. Let us know who gets your vote in the comments below. Victoria Beckham in Victoria Beckham Rihanna in Stella McCartney Blake Lively in Gucci Premiere Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney Selena Gomez in Diane von Furstenberg Emma […]Read More
Christian Dior is showing in Brooklyn!
If we learnt one thing from watching five seasons of Gossip Girl, it was that Brooklyn really wasn’t the place to be as far as New York locations were concerned… but it looks like Christian Dior disagrees with that! Akin to Alexander Wang, who received all sorts of media complaints when he decided to stage his latest spring/summer 2014 show there earlier this year, Raf Simons will be hosting the pre-spring/summer2015 Cruise show in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Navy Yard, to be exact. “We wanted the show to feel very New York, and the Navy Yard’s view and space captures the city,” said a spokesperson for Christian Dior. Celebs, journalists, FROWers and fashionistas alike shouldn’t complain too much though, as Dior will be handing all the travel arrangements, ensuring its guests get there without a fuss. Cars will reportedly drop guests off at the ferry docks on 34th Street and the FDR Drive, and boats will take guests to the fashion show’s exact location. Pretty neat, right? The Christian Dior Cruise 2015 show will take place at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on May 7th at 6:30 pm. [WWD]Read More

Did Leighton Meester and Adam Brody secretly get married?
Did former Gossip Girl Leighton Meester and former The OC star Adam Brody secretly get married? If we are to believe the reports that have been doing the rounds over the past 24 hours, the answer is a big fat yes! The wedding band on Adam’s finger pretty much gave that away… Adam and Leighton reportedly only got engaged around three months ago, but we think they might just be one of the cutest couples in Hollywood – they’re both incredibly good looking and hail from two of our favourite shows from back in the (sort of) day. And who doesn’t love a whirlwind romance? We’re all for celebs having their privacy, but we do have a burning question that we really want answered. Who did Leighton Meester wear down the aisle? We predict that she went for a Vera Wang gown, seeing as she was once the face of the Vera Wang Lovestruck fragrance (and what a beautiful face she was!) but then she may have done a Keira Knightley and gone for something understated instead… what do you think? We hope someone spills the beans soon or better still, issues an official photograph, because we think the former Blair Waldorf would make a gorgeous bride!Read More

Blake Lively is the newest face of L’Oreal Paris!
Huge congratulations to former Gossip Girl Blake Lively, as she has just signed a multi-million Dollar contract as the newest brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris! And she’s in good company too, joining the likes of our very own Cheryl Cole, as well as Beyonce, Freida Pinto, Lea Michele, Jennifer Lopez and more. L’Oreal Paris confirmed the news via their Instagram account, roughly translated from French as: “Exclusive announcement! We’re excited to welcome the gorgeous and talented Blake Lively, our new lady ambassador! She’s definitely worth it!” We couldn’t agree more! It was only a matter of time until the girl with the gorgeous golden hair and flawless skin was snapped up by the hair and beauty brand. We can’t wait to see her debut ad for the company!

Leighton Meester named Biotherm Global Brand Ambassador
Although her co-star Blake Lively has been on countless red carpets and front rows, we haven’t seen much of Leighton Meester since Gossip Girl sadly came to an end. However, it’s just been revealed that she has been named the global brand ambassador for L’Oreal owned skincare brand Biotherm… which should hopefully fill the Leighton Meester void quite nicely. “What I love about Biotherm is it’s always evolving and changing and becoming more modern,” Leighton said in a statement. “Leighton Meester is a contemporary icon, a young star whose natural talent, energy and beauty have made her the face of a generation,” added Patrick Kullenberg, a spokesperson for Biotherm International. The 27-year-old actress seems like the perfect brand ambassador with her seemingly flawless and blemish-free skin; have you ever seen her have a bad face day? We can expect to see the first of her ad campaigns from the start of next year. [WWD]Read More

Sleeveless, long-sleeved, bold, sparkly, subtle, chic… blouses come in all shapes, sizes, styles and colours.

Jennifer Lawrence lands the coveted American Vogue September issue cover!
Yee-hah – MFL and Christian Dior fave Jennifer Lawrence has only gone and landed the coveted September issue cover of American Vogue! 2013 is definitely Jen’s year; first a ‘Best Actress’ Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook and now the Vogue September cover. Surely it doesn’t get better than this, does it? Ms Lawrence was photographed by Mario Testino, and we’re willing to bet good money that she will be rocking some Christian Dior threads on either the cover or the accompanying editorial. In fact we think she outfit she wore to the label’s Couture show at the weekend (above) is totally fashion Bible ready! Some of the other fashion glossy September stars have been revealed too; Kate Upton has been photographed by Carter Smith for Elle, while Jennifer Aniston was shot by Alexei Hay for Glamour’s offering. Marie Claire has gone with New Girl Zooey Deschanel, while Lucky has tapped former Gossip Girl Blake Lively. What do you think of the line-up so far? No catwalk models just yet… watch this space!

Taylor Momsen signs to Next Models
After her Gossip Girl character Jenny ‘Little J’ Humphrey was dropped from the show, it’s all been a bit quiet on the old Taylor Momsen front. (She does have her band The Pretty Reckless which she is the frontwoman of, but it’s not really our cup of tea…) Models on the other hand are our cup of tea, which is why we’re quite excited to learn that she has just been signed to Next Model Management – one of the biggest agencies in the world – who has the likes of Alexa Chung, Jessica Alba, Rita Ora and Lana Del Rey in its books. “I’m excited about my new relationship with Next Models,” she said. “Next has great vision, and will be a fantastic partner in furthering both my music and fashion.” 19-year-old Taylor is no newbie in the modelling world, as she already has some impressive modelling gigs under her belt; she was the face of Madonna and Lourdes’ Material Girl clothing line and has appeared in ad campaigns for New Look and a John Galliano fragrance. We wonder what her first big project will be… [Telegraph]Read More
Couture Fashion Week highlights from Dior and Giambattista Valli
We always look forward to a Giambattista Valli show regardless of the season, but we were waiting with breath of even more baited proportions for Raf’s (we call him Raf – we like to think of him as our buddy) Christian Dior collection this Couture Fashion Week. We predicted great things for the respective shows, and we weren’t disappointed with the extravagant pieces that floated down the Parisian catwalks. We got a mix of colours and clever layering at Dior, with lots of gowns for celebs to choose from for the upcoming awards season. Although Raf Simons is slowly putting his own signature on the brand, it’s clear to see that he’s respecting and referencing the work of Christian Dior at the same time- why else would the show be taking place in such green surroundings in Paris’ Tuillerie Gardens? Volume was key, which is why there were larger-than-life skirts juxtaposed with slimmer silhouettes and finer tailoring. His vision for the three-piece bar suit was particularly inspiring. Over at Giambattista Valli it was more or less Princess central – or at least high society central. Early scenes from Gossip Girl spring to mind! The full dresses were just as extravagant as we hoped and expected, although we also got some more playful creations this time around with the introduction of mini and midi skirt lengths. Sugary pastels and exquisite, intricate detailing were in abundance, but it’s clear to see that the classic Giambattista Valli girl is spicing things up a bit this season! Stay tuned for more couture delights from the likes of Chanel and Stéphane Rolland.Read More
Follow the masses and get your Converse today!
Kanye West might be all over the Yeezy trainers (the foot candy he designed with Nike) but not every man is willing to literally walk in his shoes. While Kim Kardashian‘s other half and a host of his other rapper pals might not be ready give up their Nike’s just yet, Converse trainers still remain as one of the most popular types of footwear in the world for both men and women; and given their iconic timeless design, it’s not hard to see why! If you think the Converse brand has been around forever, then you’re not far off, because the first shoes were invented back in 1908. Although the classic black and white design is just as – if not more – popular as it was back in the day other Converse creations are also taking the world by storm too. Not only are they a great sports shoe (we don’t need to tell you how many basketball stars, tennis players, skateboarders and other athletes swear by them) but they make casual dressing a breeze. The majority of styles and colours tend to go with most daywear, and given the right accessorising, can actually translate well into nightwear too provided you’re not attending a black tie event. You only need to look at all the male and female celebs rocking their Converse on a daily basis to understand the full extent of their popularity. And you can even get some cheeky styling tips from them too. Actors such as Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford and Ben Affleck, and singers like Bruno Mars and Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong are just a few of the famous faces who swear by Converse trainers, be it the popular Chuck Taylor All -star designs or something a little bit more individual. If you want […]Read More
Alexa Chung is releasing her very own book next year!
Looks like Alexa Chung’s cameo appearance on Season 6 of our beloved Gossip Girl isn’t the only thing we have to look forward to next year. Our fave Brit fashionista has just revealed that she’ll be penning her very own book, and it’s set to be released in September of next year! Sure that’s quite a long way away, but hopefully we will gain some insight and even some cheeky snippets from the book before then. At the moment, details about the book are a little vague, but it will reportedly give fans an insight into Alexa’s fun, quirky and fashionable world, where she’ll spill the beans on how she decides what to wear, reveal who her fashion influences are and even dish out some style tips! We’ll keep you posted when we know more; will you be buying her book when it hits the shelves next year? [Telegraph]Read More
6 celebrity style icons worthy of their own clothing label
There is a long list of contemporary stylish ladies who are equally as eye catching as the Hepburn’s, Kelly’s and Monroe’s of yesteryear. These ladies have an ‘until death do us part’ kinda relationship with fashion, and their extensive wardrobes, impeccable taste and dedication to looking stylish knows no bounds. So to celebrate the women at the fore of fashionable happenings and their enviable sense of style, we’ve decided to chart our top 6 style icons… Rihanna We think RiRi’s sartorial reputation precedes her. Yes, she has a penchant for expletive-laden footwear (cue: X Factor performance in those trainers), wearing clothes emblazoned with illegal substances and often pushes the limits of fashion to an unimaginable edge, but she never fails to carry off her eccentric wardrobe. High Street, high fashion our outrageously high heels worn with leather shorts; she really is the only girl in the world who can execute it with perfection! Fave 2012 fashion moment: In Givenchy Haute Couture at the 2012 BRIT Awards, Olivia Palermo Gracing front row at headline-hitting fashion shows; girlfriend to a HOT model and the owner of a wardrobe over spilling with sartorial perfection, Olivia Palermo is a no-brainer on our Style Icons list! The flawless beauty, who fronts the cover of the Instyle UK October issue, revealed she likes ‘walking out of the house feeling fully pulled together.’ Something she sure has down to a t! The queen of nonchalant off-duty dressing (she even makes dog walking look stylish!), Olivia is often spotted in impeccable style staples, including a well cut jacket, a statement (not ‘It’) bag and wow-inducing heels. Olivia’s timeless style is easy to translate, and appeals to a wider population – a large chunk of which definitely likes to look fashionably ‘pulled together’.

Blake Lively stuns in Gucci at the Venice Film Festival
Quelle surprise; Blake Lively turns up to a red carpet event and looks flawless. We know we’ve sung this tune a thousand times, but it never really gets old as far as our fave leggy blonde Gossip Girl actress is concerned. Blake turned up to the Hotel Cipriani during the Venice Film Festival for the launch party of Gucci Première, the brand spanking new scent from the fashion House that she is of course the face of. Ms Lively showed off some of her best assets in the custom, sparkling burgundy-coloured Gucci dress, which she accessorised with minimalist, matching Gucci strappy heels and her trademark slightly dishevelled hairstyle. You know, the one that screams “I got dressed in under five minutes and look how unfairly gorgeous I look!”. Another flawless red carpet appearance from the blonde goddess, but then again, when do we get anything less than perfection from Blake Lively? [Image c/o Gucci]Read More
Jill Stuart unveils new bag… modelled by Olivia Palermo, inspired by Blair Waldorf
Another reason to love Jill Stuart. Not only has the brand produced a gorgeous, sophisticated new tote bag modelled by Olivia Palermo, but the ad campaign is based on fictional Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf. Two of our favourite things/people for the price of one; how could we complain? The tote comes in blue, black, and tan (very classic!) and looks like it will go great with all the new season staples your wardrobe will inevitably be getting in the next few months. The ads apparently debuted in the September issue of Vogue Girl Korea and Vogue Korea, and all three of the bag’s colour combos can be seen, along with fab ideas for you to style them. Just think Upper East Side and you won’t go wrong! (We almost wish we were back in school so we could rock one of these… we said almost!) Click here for some sneaky behind the scenes images of Olivia getting dolled up for the photoshoot. Which colour is your favourite?Read More
Alexa Chung fronts Maje’s autumn/winter 2012 ad campaign!
A cameo in Gossip Girl (which we are too freakin’ excited for words about, by the way!) isn’t the only thing Alexa Chung has going on at the moment. French brand Maje has just tapped our fashionable Brit girl to be the face of its black and white autumn/winter 2012 campaign… and we already have the images for you to glance over. Good to you, aren’t we? “Elegant yet edgy, her attitude reflects a personality that is both glamorous and rock ’n’ roll,” stated the brand. Well if edgy, glam and rock ‘n’ roll is what the brand was after, it’s definitely onto a winner by enlisting the help of Alexa. These casual, natural and almost candid-looking pics showcase her true beauty, proving just why everyone has fallen in love with her. Do you like her ad campaign? If not, don’t worry, we doubt it’ll be too long before another brand snaps her up! [WWD]Read More
Leighton Meester for Vera Wang’s new Lovestruck Floral Rush fragrance
Last week it was all about Blake Lively for Gucci, but now it’s her Gossip Girl co-star Leighton Meester’s turn to shine on a fragrance ad campaign. After all, Blair Waldorf wouldn’t have it any other way! Leighton is posing pretty for Carter Smith, as she promotes Vera Wang’s new ‘Lovestruck Floral Rush’ scent – a follow-up to the popular ‘Lovestruck’ perfume that she is also the face of! Top notes of this fragrance include champagne, pink pepper and apricot blossom, as well as some pink passion flower, marigold and white freesia in the middle. Sounds pretty scrumptious, but we’ll let you be the judge of that when it comes out later this month. And just like the original Lovestruck fragrance, it continues with the modern day Romeo and Juliet theme… can’t go wrong with a good old-fashioned love story with a contemporary twist!

Blake Lively’s Gucci Première commercial finally lands – and it’s stunning!
It’s a busy week for Gucci! Just yesterday we showed you the second of four Charlotte Casiraghi Forever Now ad campaign images, and today we have something just as, if not more, special. It’s finally time to see Blake Lively in action, as the video commercial for her Gucci Première fragrance has finally surfaced. And yes, all of those clichés like saving the best til last and good things coming to those who wait all apply in this situation. The short film was shot by Nicholas Winding Refn, and features the blonde actress looking like a true golden Hollywood goddess in not one, but two jaw-droppingly gorgeous Gucci gowns. We know Blake is used to dressing in lavish gowns on Gossip Girl, but we don’t think we’ve ever seen her looking so seductive and sumptuous. Are you loving this as much as we are? http://youtu.be/NzV3GRtwftQ [Gucci Parfums]Read More
