She doesn’t even go here!

TEN points for whoever can tell me what the title quote is from!!

The lovely Rachel McAdams is looking amazing here, apart from the slightly demented look on her face, ahem.
I love this rather masculine take on a jumpsuit and I’ve wanted a pair of Pigalle’s (albeit the studded ones) since forever.

Coachella Style 2011

These photos have got me all excited for the summer – roll on the festivals!!
Here’s a pic of my fave outfits of Coachella 2011…and a surprise along the way.

Camilla Belle in Mulberry – keeping it girly but still festival fit. 
Nicole Richie, also in Mulberry – she’s a festival pro
Lindsay Lohan (love her camera)
Alessandra Ambrosio looking as only a model can
Vanessa Hudgens – not loving this look, feels a bit too contrived
Rihanna looking like she’d kill you
Katy Perry sticking to her girly kitsch schtick
Ashley Greene in a fairly normal, and achievable, outfit
Rachel Bilson looking cute
Whitney Port looking for a lost filling
What festival fashion piece would be complete without Kate Bosworth?
AND NOW, for the grand finale, I give you..

Hopping on/off the Cate Blanchett bandwagon

My personal style hero at 2011 Oscars is Cate Blanchett.
I’m generally a fan of her style – she sometimes divides opinion and this divine Givenchy Couture dress is certainly no excpetion. WANT.

Bafta Vs Grammy Fashion

I keep meaning to do a NYFW post, but with various commitments during the past week I haven’t had a chance to check out my favourites just yet. This weekend  saw 2 of the biggest red carpet events in the celeb diary and here’s a quick rundown of *my* favourite and not-so-favourite outfits from both.

First up is the Baftas:

Jessica Alba – she can sometimes do wrong with her outfit choices, but she’s got it spot on here in Atelier Versace. This gorgeous royal blue colour compliments her olive skin perfectly and gives her gorgeous shape (and cleavage?!!) Her clutch is cute and the statement necklace doesn’t take away too much from the gorgeous dress.
Thandie Newton is someone who consistently looks great at red carpet events. However she’s someone that usually slips under my radar. Ordinarily she would run the risk of blending in with the carpet with this colour, however this Monique Lhullier dress manages to stand out and scream GLAMOUR. I love.

Amy Adams – YIKES. I’m not sure what to say about this. In theory  this Elie Saab dress is gorgeous – the colour, the beautiful beading, the draping of the material. However it does nothing for Amy and I’ve definitely seen her looking much better.

Sarah Harding – oh no. This dress would be gorgeous without the thigh-high split or maybe with a different stance. I dunno…just…no…

Rosamund Pike – she’s gorgeous, it’s Alexander McQueen. Everyone else loves it, I feel I should. Yet, I don’t and I can’t quite place my finger on it. Why don’t I love this? Whhhhhhyyyyyy??!

Gemma Arterton – PERFECTION. I  love this YSL dress. The vibrant blue bow and the strong red lip are so striking with Gemma’s brunette hair – definitely my favourite look of thee night. Pure class. 
Now, over the Atlantic and onto the more…playful fashion of the Grammy’s.

Nicki Minaj – Well it’s fun isn’t it? I love Nicki Minaj so i’m gonna be biased anyway. You wouldn’t wear this to pop to the shops to buy a pint of milk like.

J.Lo. – great pins but where’s the rest of your Pucci dress?!!

Katy Perry in Armani Prive – barf.

Rhianna in Jean Paul Gaultier – I loved this haute couture dress on the runway and I love it on Rhianna. It’s a brave choice and totally high-fashion, not everyone could pull it off and still manage to look relatively classy. I love Ri-Ri’s toned down auburn locks aswell. Take THAT Chris Brown! 
So there we have it – 2 very different events, both filled to the brim with stylish and gorgeous celebs. The BAFTA’s was an altogether classy affair, whilst the Grammy’s affords you  a chance for a more playful and brave look. Which do you prefer? Are there any others that you loved/hated? 

House of Harlow – Nicole Richie and my persuit to look as good as her..

I love Nicole Richie. There. I’ve said it.
I loved her when it wasn’t cool to love her – i.e. on The Simple Life.
I loved her with blonde hair, I love her with brunette hair.
I love her even more now she has a bit of meat on her bones and probably one of my favourite celebrity styles. Her effortless ability to look chic is something I strive to achieve and a lot of the time is down to her great eye for accessories.
This is a ring from her House Of Harlow 1960 jewellery range & is available at a number of online stores. I love it. I want it. I NEED it. I will have it.

BEHOLD! House of Harlow 1960 Abalone Sunburst Cocktail Ring

Here are a few of my fave Nicole Richie sartorial moments…just to give you an idea as to why I love her.
