Alexander McQueen Resort 2012

A brand that truly inspires me to push myself. Alexander Mcqueen.

Here is Sarah Burtons Resort 2012 range. "Romantic Utility"

Cotton is Sarah Burton's choice of fabric, claiming it makes it real. The range revolves around tailored silhouette and ornate surface treatments. The range includes pieced leather biker jackets, cocktail sheath where the bodice was embroidered in gold and black. The range seems to have a feel of royalty, maybe due to royal wedding involvement, the lace and silhouettes, nipped in at the waist and kick peats, showcases a Victorian period. There is also a military side to the collection, ocelot prints and Indian style jewels, beads and shells.

Happy Birthday...

Today's birthday is Khloe Kardashians. I hold my hands up I love watching the Keeping Up With The Kardashians series and of course the Khloe and Lamar and the NYC and Miami spin offs. On my visit to NYC I did go see the DASH store in Soho, there I am near the sparkly mannequins below, looking uber cool. Haha.

So I thought on behalf of Khloe Kardashian's birthday, I should look at all her fashion highs :).

Khloe in simple baggy sheer jumper and short denims to show off those long legs teamed up with a Hermes bright yellow bags. Simple Californian style.

Khloe looking lush in a leopard print blouse. Everyone should own one. To be worn with simple straight leg/cigarette black trouser, leather trousers/shorts and a pair of simple jeans.

I love a lady in a white shirt. Not feeling the shoes though Khloe.

Khloe wearing an Evil Twin Cardigan available at FR by Fashion Rocks store in Meadowhall.

Khloe with true style in an Alexander McQueen dress, you can not go wrong with curves like that.

I love this rock n roll look which has been vamped up with bright blue skinny jeans, that match with Khloe's peep toe shoes. Very modern and it will elongate her leg, as bright skinnys are hard to pull off.

A classic all black outfit with a pop of bright yellow due to the clutch. The jumpsuit is skinny leg with a dip v neck, making it super sexy. :)

Happy Birthday Khloe.

Damn we tried hard to get those tickets but we failed miserably. I've been busy with work recently so I have not even had the chance to watch the glastonbury highlights on TV.
Oh well, I am going to Leeds Festival this year and to be honest that line up is more to my liking.

I am just gonna go over some fashion highlights of the weekend. One must is the Hunter welly, which I have already purchased from Schuh for when I get to experience my first music festival.

It has only been recently that I have had my lady crush for Alexa Chung, when I saw her in the flesh at the Burberry Prorsum A/W 11 show. Before that I thought she was a scruff who happened to date the lead singer of one of my favourite bands. She has beaut skin, relaxed hair and crazily long legs. She is just so effortless. I love leopard print and this coat is just love. Big love for Alexa. Denim distressed shorts are a classic for festival season as well as the panama hat. And I so wished I owned a Chanel bag... DADDY?!?!!!

Kate Moss I love you too. With age this women seems to get cooler and hotter (how that works I just do not know). Balmain, a favorite label of mine, leather jacket is teamed up with acid wash jeans rather than the distressed shorts Moss used to wear. So Rock n Roll, So cool, and so effortless.

I do not think Shinghai Shoniwa of The Noisettes is noted enough for how fashionable she is, instead of cool babes such as herself we see the skanky fashion sense of The Saturdays and Cheryl Mole in our UK fashion magazines, BORE OFF. Like Lady Gaga, this lady excites with her fashions. Here she is wearing Dolce and Gabbana leotard with a train, only her crazy legs could pull this off.

Jessie J - All I can say... is nobody can work the cast like she can. Jokes aside the body suit is "sick" I love this black and white contrasting pattern. And every girl would love a thrown.

So note to self when I go on my Festival Fashion Journey...
Leopard print
Distressed/Acid wash jean

The brand's decadent homeware will be transferred onto the highstreet.

MTV Movie Awards Style

I love you Emma Watson...  Watson wore this dress for the after party rather than the arrivals for the MTV Movie Awards. This crazy coloured dress is Marchesa, with a low cut neckline and ruffles.

Emma Stone wears a black lace Bottega Veneta dress, with flashes of yellow from the corsetry underneath.

Kristen Stewart in BALMAIN. Love this designer!!! Covered in safety pins.

Heather dress looks fabulous with the sheer skirt and Jimmy Choo heels.

Minaj that is some shoddy makeup, sort out the lip liner, and the dodgy white foundation and put that vile cleavage away. BLAH...
