What better to way to begin the weekend countdown than with some sartorial inspiration from the fancy-pants world of celeb? So whether you’ll be taking a city stroll in the sunshine or dressed to the nines, we have a selection of muses for today’s stimulus. Let's investigate…
We just love this, and we mean all of it. The wavy bouffant is simply astounding, the bold yet unique animal print on her Elise Øverland SS10 frock is sooo on trend and those bondage strappy sandals add a cheeky kick (no accessories required). In fact, we find ourselves fast developing a style crush on this Rose Byrne lady. Especially as it’s not often we see her out and about looking so resplendent, which makes her latest fashwan display that much more brilliant. Take note, people.
Much of the time, Jessica Biel’s style leaves us with a ‘blah’ taste in our mouths (joggers and a baseball cap, anyone?) but this Emilio Pucci AW10 gown, which she wore for the LA premiere of 'The A Team', is a guaranteed showstopper. It’s a little bit Gwynnie in Berardi mixed with a smidge of a Grecian Ange-meets-Megan (in a good way) and although it’s essentially a napkin across the bust and a bedsheet on the hips with a naughty corset squeezed between, it never hurts to whip up a stir on the red rug, so we’re awarding Mrs JT with a solid B+. In other words: not bad.
My my, what shimmering pins you have Chezza! Our beloved Geordie was in Paris yesterday for the AZ Party (nah, us neither), sequinned to within an inch of her life and looking like a little drop of stardust in this sexy Hervé Léger by Max Azria sparkler teamed with a Rihanna-esque spiked bracelet and funky Nicholas Kirkwood heels. Very well played, obvs.
Before the obligatory dress inspection, a congratulatory thumbs up goes to Kristen Stewart in South Korea last night for finally finding a way to make that mullet grow-out a little less grubby with a flicky ’tail of glossy extensions (hallelujah!). And from the head down, we’re still pretty impressed. A sultry black mini, a waist-nipping belt, a pair of mile long legs topped off with classy peeptoes = a very good deployment of fierceness. We can almost hear the collective sigh of relief.
The final treat of the week comes in the teeny form of Kylie and her stocking-and-suspenders shocker. Now we know there’s really no cause for concern and honestly, we shouldn’t be so aghast considering this is the woman who’s finest hour saw her writhing around in a pair of gold hot pants but for the love of God woman, you don’t need to show-off your knickers in such an eye-popping display of sheer kinkiness! Aside from the raunchy thigh region, we see metal chains mixed with dominatrix handcuffs and although it’s from the wonderous hand of Jean Paul Gaultier, what is with that leather sleeve stretched around the neck?! The leather sleeve is not good. But what say you? The box below awaits your view and the poll above is dying for your vote...
