Golden Globes 2018 | Best Dressed Stars

It’s not everyday where you get to witness solidarity and social issues being spoken so actively by celebrities and film stars, even more so at an awards show. This was the case for the 2018 Golden Globes where stars used the platform to talk about the huge sexual harassment scandals that have been recently brought to light. Female celebrities including Reese Witherspoon and Cara Delevigne even took to social media with the trending hashtags #timesup and #metoo to discuss the gender inequities and harassment women face in the workplace. To honour this years Time’s Up theme, actresses (and actors) wore black to honour the victims of sexual harassment and show their support. Couture designs of Chanel, Prada and Dior dazzled the red carpet as the stars wore custom made gowns just for this special event. Here’s a few of my favourite looks of the night: I’ve also provided a few affordable little black dresses because seeing those adoring outfits just makes me want to purchase a special black dress for myself.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017 | Highlights, Fantasy Bra and Swarovski Crystals

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was held in Shanghai, China and included the beautiful Bella Hadid, Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima and more. This year, 55 Victoria’s Secret Angels walked down the aisle and had talent guest singers including Harry Styles, Miguel, Leslie Odom Jr and Jane Zhang. The show opened with Candice Swanepoel wearing a black and red plaid lingerie set designed by Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing. Strutting down the aisle looking like a real life Barbie Doll, it’s hard to imagine that just last year (in October actually) did she welcome her first child. It was the FIRST time that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show was held in an Asian country. As well as other firsts, luxury designer Balmain featured many of the Angel’s looks including the ‘Punk Angel’ and ‘Goddesses’ group. As for this year’s ‘fantasy bra’, it was worn by the amazing Brazilian model, Lais Ribeiro. The ‘Champagne nights’ fantasy bra valued at $2.6 million was of course another highlight of the show, encrusted with bejewelled diamonds, yellow sapphires and blue topaz, …

Celebrity street style | Gingham, Designer tees…

This week I am going to be sharing my favourite ‘celebrity inspired’ street-style looks that I have created. Normally, when choosing outfits or statement pieces, I don’t necessarily copy from head to toe a celebrity’s style down to the exact colour of socks they wear, I like to look at what’s been trending and gain inspiration from there. In particular, gingham and statement tees have been popular all over social media from celebrities to IT bloggers sharing these trends online. Here is my take on the trends and how EASY they are to incorporate to your own style: Gingham It’s what everyone has been obsessing over and what’s not to love about the black and white monochrome? It instantly gives off that classic but effortless look, perfect for any occasion. It’s also great for the Summer season and because of it’s minimal colours, gingham pairs well with almost anything! Slogan Tees Let’s face it, even though the Gucci printed tee is very cute and has been worn by almost every A-list celebrity, I don’t think …

How To Style: Statement Tees – Girl Power

Nothing feels more empowering than wearing a statement tee to, well…make a statement about something you feel passionate about! Last week I was on my way to uni and passed a small boutique that I hadn’t noticed before and on the very first clothing rack was an outfit that caught my attention. It was a printed tee with the words ‘Girl Power’ under cute gingham overalls and as soon as I spotted it, I knew I had to have it because of the many ways to style statement/graphic tees. I have been obsessing over statement tees because they make a statement (literally) to your entire look and it is so easy to dress up and down and I love versatility in my clothes. Because the weather is still pretty chilly if you’re not under the sun in Sydney so far, I paired it with simple black jeans and espadrilles because I wanted the top to do all the talking. But I’m very excited to style it in the warmer months with a skirt, overalls or …

Makeup Wishlist 2017 | (Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Line)

A girl can never have enough makeup products in their life right?! And with so many new releases of popular makeup products, celebrity beauty launches and viral beauty trends how can one keep up? With that being said, I’ve shared my (long) wish-list of my most desired makeup products: Kylie Cosmetics Kylie’s cosmetics is probably one of the most sought out celebrity makeup launches that have ever been released and for all the right reasons too! Even if you’re not a fan of the Kardashians and the Jenners you have to admire her success. I’ve tried the lip kits from one of my friends and everything about the pigment, colour and smell is perfect. And although the currency difference and international shipping fees can be annoying, I think that they’re definitely worth it. Rihanna’s Fenty beauty products Rihanna’s Fenty beauty line literally launched today and social media is in a frenzy! After two years of development and online sneak peeks, it’s finally here! I’m obsessed with Rihanna so I am partially biased to this makeup …

MTV VMA’s Best Dressed Celebs 2017

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards has officially come to a wrap, and this year the event seemed  more spectacular and show stopping than ever before. From P!nk’s heart whelming speech on body acceptance and confidence for her daughter and young girls all over the world, to Kendrick Lamar’s super lit performance (since he was literally on fire) the VMA’s did not disappoint. And of course, if you haven’t seen the photos splattered all over Instagram, Refinery and Eonline, this year’s VMA’s look more like a fashion runway than a music awards show. Here is a rendition of my ‘best dressed’ looks from the night: Hailee Steinfeld  Wearing Atelier Versace, the young pop princess looks absolutely fierce in this beautiful muffled turquoise dress. The halter neck detailing and sequinned ruffles in the bottom half looks as though it’s come straight out of the set from The Great Gatsby. Vanessa Hudgensn Vanessa Hudgens is one of those few people where they can never have a ‘bad’ outfit and this year’s look certainly was no exception. Wearing …

Stylish People You Need To Follow

Looking for fashion and beauty inspiration can sometimes be harder in today’s media world because we’re flooded with so many fashion and style icons. For today’s post I’m going to be sharing my top favourite influencers that I always go back to when I’m feeling under-inspired and just need a burst of creativity. Janice Joostema Janice’s Instagram is definitely one of my favourites because her feed is minimalistic, chic and sophisticated. She’s only one year older than me but she’s achieved so much already and always looks like she’s stepped out of a glam magazine. 2. Olivia Palermo  I fell in love with her when I first saw her on the reality show ‘The City’ which was way back in 2008. Her fashion is not only elegant and simplistic but also represents her bold personality and how she’s not afraid to say what she feels. Her blog also has everything to keep you up to date when it comes to runway shows and high end fashion. 3. Sincerely Jules  Julie Sarinana or Sincerely Jules as …
