Knuckle Duster Anyone?

This season we’re channelling our scary, gothic, ‘knuckle duster-esque’ vibe when it comes to our jewels.. and what better way to balance out a floral, girly chic outfit than to rough it up with some FIERCE accessories?!  Some might say they’re a little hazardous or even dare I say dangerous.. !**rolls eyes**! Aaah well whatchya gonna do?!

I’m in LOVE with designer Katie Rowland! Those babies are limited edition gold and black rhodium versions of her infamous knuckledusters from the Love & Faith Collection, and St Tropez collection.

Both items can be found at : http://www.katie-rowland.com/index.htm

Dominic Jones was very popular a few seasons ago with his sharp androgynous pieces. His newest campaign is being fronted by the oh so lovely Alice Dellal…

Yes people it’s time to embrace your inner androgyny!!!

Christian Louboutin Extreme Heels!!

I think I’d definitely consider myself a connoisseur of KILLER heels, but these just take the biscuit! Christian Louboutin has designed these corkers for a charity auction to raise money for the English National Ballet, their grants have been slashed by £2m by the Arts Council.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Erdem, Giles Deacon, and Roskanda Illncic, are amongst the designers that have also designed one off pieces to support the fundraising shenanigans.. and what better way to do it??!! See below one of Giles Deacons heavenly creations for the cause..

If you have a serious shoe fetish like me then you’ll recognize them from Beyonce’s ‘Get Me Bodied’ video:

Extreme heels are not such a new trend, the late great Alexander Mcqueen released his notorious ‘Armadillo’ heels back in 2009, and were championed at the time by Lady GaGa..

Glasto update alert!!!

After a long sweaty weekend of frolicking in the mud, bands galore, flooded tents, frizzy hair, and of course Beyonce’s bootay poppin, Glastonbury is officially over for another year… !**wipes away tear*!!

All hail Queen B!!! She kept the festival goers happy with an hour and a half of mindblowing covers including ‘Sex on Fire’ by the Kings of Leon, and ‘You Outta Know’ by Alanis Morrisette. Wearing nothing but a gold sequined Jacket and black hotpants she certainly didn’t leave much to the imagination.

Kate Moss opted for her signature festival chic that only she does best, sporting the mandatory hunter wellies, snakeskin jeans, and a Balmain styled leather jacket. Jaime Winstone on the other hand opted for an errrm.. well…. !*cough*! different look, sporting what can only described as convict pajamas.

P.s Check Jaime’s footwear.. Are palladium boots making a comeback??!!! We hope so.. get yours here:

Trend Forecast: AZTEC.


The festival season is well and truly upon us, and after mulling over potential festival outfits with a few of my girls last night we decided AZTEC is definitely going to be a hot look this summer! Aztec-inspired prints are making waves on the catwalk and the red-carpet. Sooo I thought I’d throw together a few outfit ideas for you guys!

River Island: Red Aztec Dress.

Topshop: Aztec Print Leggings.

Asos: Reverse Aztec Print V Neck Dress.

Asos: Pippa Lyn Aztec Print Cape.

Smarten up your AZTEC with a leather jacket and luxe jewellery for the evening or if you’re feeling adventurous, make like Rihanna and wear a few prints and textures at once for an eye-catching ensemble.

Why not add sleek, sexy, funky nails that pop and give your look an extra edge. By the way, if you haven’t heard of WAH nails yet.. get to know! (http://wah-nails.com/tagged/aztec)

Galsto 2011… looks like it’s gonna be a wet one!

It’s the first official day of Glastonbury and with the absolutely miserable weather I think it’s safe to say you wouldn’t be blamed for being a bit of a stick in the mud!! !**pun intended… evil grin**!!

Is it weird that I’m still MASSIVELY jealous that I’m not there??!! This years Glasto go-er’s are in store for a  melody of musical goodness as Beyonce, Coldplay, and U2 are set to headline over the weekend.

Lets hope it brightens up.. for their sake!! It’s bad enough deciding what to wear at the moment with the sporadic weather forecasts..  add mud to that predicament and it’s every girls worst nightmare!!

Looks like mud is set to be a must have accessory for summer ’11 ladies… Errrm !!**cough**!! or not!!

Cameron Diaz opts for ultra-short Chanel dress!!

Cameron Diaz. I’m sorry I’m going to need a moment… Ok it’s official her pins are definitely endless!!

Last night the 38 year old rocked up to the premiere of her latest film ‘Bad Teacher’ looking absolutely sizzling!

She appears in the new film with her ex-beau Justin Timberlake, the movie includes a very short but significant sex scene, !!**AWKWARD!!** could this have anything to do with the ultra short outfit option? A dress from the Chanel spring 2011 range.. I think so, and with those legs who can blame her?!  She kept her ensemble simple with tousled hair, black pumps by Casadei, and gold Cartier jewelry.


The pair of co-stars shared a friendly kiss at the premiere last night. Have a snoop at the link below to hear Cameron’s views about ‘that’ scene 🙂

Did someone say Versace for H&M??!!!

Ok Ladies it’s that time again… brace yourself for ridiculously long queues, rail hoggers,  and for the ultimate fashionistas maybe even an overnight wait… yup it’s going to be fashion warfare as Versace have confirmed they will be the next fashion house to collaborate with H&M.. I know I’m just as excited as you!!

Christmas will definitely come early this autumn as the range will consist of pieces for women, the home, and Donatella has even been kind enough to create some pieces for the fella’s too, so we all have something to look forward to.

H&M have promised that the collection will be “full of leather, print, colour and exuberance in exclusive materials at fantastic H&M prices.” Hmm, if you’re thinking the same as me you’ll be envisaging signature Versace pieces for the collection that will include ultra sleek tailoring and glamazon sexy tight dresses… eeeeek!

After the previous hysteric fashion frenzy  that H&M collaborations have created with designers such as Roberto Cavalli, and Lanvin I’ll be ready and waiting on November 17th!! See ya there !

!!**trembles with excitement*!!!
