By Andrea Petrou on December 23rd, 2011

Although 2011 bought us some great new designers and celebrity fashions, it was also a sad year for music and style fans around the world as we said a goodbye to the talented Amy Winehouse.

Her soulful voice, statement beehive and tattoos as well as her ballet pumps will always be remembered in the fashion world as will her preppy chic look, which of course has been channelled in her Fred Perry collaboration.

To mark the end of the year and pay tribute to the talented star we’ve put together a gallery of her style.

New Year’s Eve Christmas party outfit celebrity inspiration: Victoria Beckham

By Andrea Petrou on December 21st, 2011

Victoria Beckham has become a huge style icon over the past few years thanks to her fashion sense and design talents so who better than the lady herself to give us some inspiration for that perfect party dress.

Throughout 2011 the singer turned designer has wowed with some stunning syles, which have rapidly been copied on the highstreet. For a smart black tie New Year’s Eve party why not go for a long black dress similar to the one worn by Posh at the British Fashion Awards or play it down with a shorter rouched number.

If black isn’t your thing then take a leaf out of Ms Beckham’s colour book and go for red or a more subtle nude for that perfect party look.

See the gallery below for all the Victoria Beckham party inspiration.

Dame Helen Mirren is the top style icon for women over 50

By Andrea Petrou on December 19th, 2011

Dame Helen Mirren is the top style icon for women over 50.

The fashionable actress, 66, claimed the accolade after clothing brand CC quizzed 1,000 women for the poll and they believe the results show that “age isn’t a barrier to style or confidence”.

A spokesperson said: “These results show that age really isn’t a barrier to style or confidence. In fact, it can be quite the opposite.

“It’s inspiring to see that many women over fifty are comfortable in their self, confident in their style and brave enough to explore new clothing options.

“Dame Helen Mirren has as much style, grace and elegance off screen as she does on it and is a fitting icon for the women of her generation.

“All too often we are bombarded with images of youth and temporary trends, so it’s great to see such a varied list filled with women of real class.”

A host of famously fashionable veterans completed the top five including model Twiggy, 62, ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ star Joanna Lumley, 65, 63-year-old singer Lulu and Dame Judi Dench, 77.

Fashion designer Victoria Beckham, 37, was a surprising inclusion on the list, just outside the top five.

The spokesperson added: “Victoria Beckham has proven she carries universal appeal and her image over the past few years has altered from high glamour to a more classic look which appeals to women of all ages.

“The results show women in their fifties aren’t afraid to embrace younger styles when they’re done the right way.”

Freida Pinto loves the Indian influences in Chanel

By Andrea Petrou on December 15th, 2011

Freida Pinto loves the Indian influences in Chanel.

Although the Mumbai born actress often wears traditional saris for special occasions, she was thrilled to find that Karl Lagerfeld is hugely inspired by India when he designs for the French fashion house.

She told Britain’s Grazia magazine: “To be honest saris are still what we choose when we dress up. But more and more Indian women are becoming fans of Chanel. I have worn it several times and often go for the Indian-influenced things.

“People don’t often talk about the Indian motifs in Karl’s collections, but I wore a sari-inspired dress in 2010 and feel that the theme is often there in his work.”

Freida recently revealed she pays careful attention to her red carpet looks so she doesn’t replicate outfits.

She said: “I try not to repeat a shade I’ve used before. Everything needs to be in sync and seem like one perfect piece, one perfect look. At the end of the day, it has to have the wow factor, so whatever I wear has to be ‘wow’.

“My must-haves are a little black dress and a pair of simple earrings that can jazz up an entire outfit. I try to keep it simple and elegant.”

Tabitha Somerset Webb wants Duchess Catherine to wear one of her Project D designs.

By Andrea Petrou on December 14th, 2011

Tabitha Somerset Webb wants Duchess Catherine to wear one of her Project D designs.

The 36-year-old fashion designer – who co-created the clothing line alongside Dannii Minogue – is thrilled that Pippa Middleton has worn their pieces on two occasions this year, and is hopeful her older sister will soon follow suit.

She said: “Pippa has been amazing. It’s so flattering that she has chosen to wear our dresses. She looks gorgeous in them. She’s very much a Project D girl – elegant, classy and sexy.

“Now it would be great if her sister Kate wore one of our designs, too.”

However, Pippa – who wore Project D gowns to a friend’s wedding in September and to a recent charity event – is not the only royal fan of the line, as Tabitha explained Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have also worn her creations to public functions.

Tabitha added in an interview with HELLO! magazine: “Princess Beatrice wore our red Crystal dress to Prince Philip’s 90th birthday party and Eugenie ordered our floral Lily gown for another private event.”

Fashion analysis: Little Mix vs The Spice Girls

By Andrea Petrou on December 14th, 2011

We heart Little Mix but when a new girl band comes into the spotlight there’s bound to be a little bit of comparison to the leaders of this genre – The Spice Girls.
Of course the queens of girl bands have all grown up now, had babies and learnt that leopard print catsuits weren’t the best fashion choices, but their style still has a huge impact on the girl group bands, especially Little Mix who have embraced their musical ancestors’ individual style.

Unlike the Saturdays and Girls Aloud, these “little muffins” are all about eclectic fashion and although they don’t have similar tastes, all the different styles seem to mesh together and work.

However, there are differences. While the Spices dressed to reflect their “characters” – Mel C, AKA Sporty, in trackies, Posh in PVC or Baby in cute attire, Little Mix seem to just be channelling their own normal style and we’re staring to spot their trademark looks.

Jesy with her leopard print leggings, Jade with her braces and knee high socks and Perrie with her 80s look making us wonder whether this is finally a girl band allowed to choose their threads instead of conforming to a certain look.

Red carpet Christmas outfit inspiration: Rooney Mara at the Girl with the Daragon Tattoo premiere and all the style from the Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol premiere

By Andrea Petrou on December 14th, 2011

When we’re having an “I don’t know what to wear” moment one of the places we’ll have a sneaky look at is red carpet events.

They are, afterall, a mecca for best dressed celebrities who have often been given top styling advice.

If you’re still stuck with what to wear to a smart Christmas party or for New Years eve then why not take some inspiration from girl of the moment Rooney Mara who went for a stunning white fishtail frock at the London premiere of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo?

If that’s a little bit too much then Caprice showed how  effective a simple red strapless dress could be at the Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol, while Talula also showed how faux fur can be stylish and keep you snug at the same event.

See the gallery below for more inspiration.

‘New Year’s Eve’ premiere fashion off: Jessica Biel vs. Lea Michele in Valentino

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on December 9th, 2011

With a star-studded cast list as ‘New Year’s Eve’ it could be difficult for the leading ladies to stand out from the crowd. One way of ensuring they get equal time in the spotlight is to give them one premiere each, which is just what director Garry Mashall did. So while Lea Michele – of  Glee fame – walked the red carpet with Ashton Kutcher in Los Angeles, Jessica Biel dazzled the crowds in New York City.

Both Lea and Jessica opted to wear a champagne coloured dress with shimmery detailing by Valentino but while Jessica chose the demure approach, Lea went for a dramatic, plunging neckline that certainly made jaws drop (including Ashton’s). Snaps for bringing out the Old Hollywood glamour, girls!

We can’t decide which one we like better, can you?

Kate Bosworth feels “strong” and “sexy” when wearing Tom Ford’s clothes

By Andrea Petrou on December 8th, 2011

Kate Bosworth feels “strong” and “sexy” when wearing Tom Ford’s clothes.

The stunning actress is a huge fan of the designer’s creations and feels very special when she puts any of them on.

She told Britain’s InStyle magazine: “You put on Tom Ford clothes and you feel strong – and you feel sexy. He has a pulse on the strength of a woman.”

And it seems the feeling is mutual as Tom thinks Kate is a great muse for his clothes, saying: “True great beauties project more than just physical allure. Kate is the ultimate sexy blonde. Audiences want to know her.”

Kate, 28, was recently praised by her stylist, Cher Coulter, for her “effortless approach” to fashion.

She said: “She’s got this effortless approach to style, and never overdoes it. She’s also fun and fashionable and willing to take risks. She’s simple, chic and always looks happy in what she’s wearing.

“We like to get creative with current trends, but Kate has to feel good and comfortable.

“Kate loves denim because it’s easy and casual. She always wears denim to remain comfy while running around town. On the flip side, she also loves to dress up denim by pairing it with a silky button-up and a necklace slung just under the shirt collar. Kate’s a chameleon – she can wear anything!”
