Pictures: Rihanna in concert at the O2

By Andrea Petrou on October 6th, 2011

Rihanna may have taken the tube to her concert at the 02 but we’re sure she didn’t wear any of her stage attire on the way.

The singer looked hot in a crochet beaded bikini which she posed with alongside 50s style cars. She also gave a nod to the 80s with her neon pink shoe boots and bright yellow hoop earrings.

Also making an appearance was a short blue wet look mac, which showed off the singers booty, we’re sure there were no complaints from the males in the audience.

See all the pictures below.

Top five pink pieces for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By Andrea Petrou on October 6th, 2011

Unless you’ve been hiding a rock, you’ll know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. According to Breast Cancer Care, every year 50,000 women a year hear they have breast cancer, which we’re sure you’ll agree is devastating.
To raise awareness of the illness and encourage women to check their breasts there’s a huge range of initiatives taking place this month as well as fundraising events such as fun runs to the more serious sporting days.

However, over here at Shiny towers we’ve decided to support the event in the best way we know and that’s of course through fashion.

See the gallery below and rope your friends into having a “pink dress day” – think Mean Girls – for every pink item you wear you can have a pound donated to a Breast Cancer charity of your choice.

Halloween outfit ideas: The sexy Twilight vampire

By Andrea Petrou on October 5th, 2011

With a nation going Twilight and vampire mad we’re sure there will be a huge number of you looking for that sexy vampire outfit this Halloween.

While many will choose to don that casual jeans and sweater look and claim they’ve come as “Bella Swan” there are others – us included – that will want to make more of an effort.

However, the days of the white face paint, fangs and cloaks are long gone and in their place comes sexy gothic. This can be anything from a burlesque style look – we’re thinking Interview with the Vampire style – to a simple velvet dress, which can be bought from the highstreet and vamped up with bright red lippy and heavy eyeliner.

We’ve picked our top five sexy vampire outfits for this year’s Halloween parties. See the gallery below.

Top Five: Winter hats

By Andrea Petrou on October 5th, 2011

Despite a mini heat wave trying to trick us into thinking that it was once again summer, waking p to a blustery day has blown us right into a traditional October morning.

And that means one thing – it’s time to really begin getting excited about our winter wardrobe. Although many of you have started stocking up, there’s one must-have that the warm weather may have made you overlook and that’s of course the winter hat.
This year there’s a huge range of styles to choose from. Go for a traditional beret updated with this year’s on-trend leopard print or play it safe with a knitted pom pom hat that’s great teamed up with a casual coat and jeans.

A bakerboy hat is also great teamed up with this season’s must-have cords. However, our fave hat trend this year is the turban, which we think is perfect for giving that exotic feel to the cold weather we’re expecting.

See the gallery below for our top five pick.

Halloween costume ideas: The Spice Girls

By Andrea Petrou on October 4th, 2011

As we pointed out yesterday, one hot Halloween trend this year is to dress up as celebrities and characters. Partly because it requires less effort and partly down to the huge celebrity world we live in.

And one look that’s set to be huge is the Spice Girl.

‘re not talking about the way they are now because that would be like wearing a posh dress to a party, more the way they were – think leopard print, garish trousers, checks and ginghams with the must have Union Jack dress.

That’s right Spice Girl mania is back for one night.
The great thing about this Halloween look is that you don’t necessarily have to visit a fancy dress shop. Scary Spice’s leopard print looks can easily be bought from the highstreet thanks to the leopard print trend thats clawed its way in this year, while Posh’s LBD can be bought nearly anywhere.
Sporty Spice fans can head to the nearest sports shop and buy a tracksuit and those who want to go all out in the Union Jack dress can get a replica from a range of fancy dress stores.
We’ve found all the best looks so all you need to do is click to buy.

See the gallery below.

Fashion meets technology: LED light dresses as seen on Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Rihanna

By Andrea Petrou on October 4th, 2011

Although we love the latest trends over here at ShinyStyle, sometimes we like to cast our minds a little bit further afield. And today is one of those days.

After seeing X Factor’s Kitty wearing an LED light leotard during bootcamp we began to think about how this technology has firmly wormed its way into the fashion world.

Most of this can be blamed on Katy Perry who kicked started this look way back in 2009 when she wore a purple frock complete with LED light detailing from designers Cute Circuit. She has since been spotted in a range of these at events ranging from premieres to the MET Gala.

And her style choice has filtered down to other celebrities. Queen of quirk Lady Gaga opted for an LED light outfit for her tour, while Katy’s BFF Rihanna took a leaf out of her style book and was spotted in a black and red LED frock during her concert.
And its not just the celebrity world that’s gone mad over this trend with the likes of Atton Conrad and Hussein Chalayan also opting for this look for part of their catwalk collections.
Will you be wearing this style? View the gallery and let us know by leaving your comments below.

Pictures: Pride of Britian Awards – Cheryl Cole wears Victoria Beckham, Tulisa, The TOWIE cast and more

By Andrea Petrou on October 4th, 2011

The stars stepped out last night in sparkles and skyscraper heels to celebrate the Pride of Britain Awards.
Cheryl Cole made her first big public appearance since the whole X Factor US debacle, showing us she was still bang on trend with a pink slinky dress by Victoria Beckham, while bandmate Nicola Roberts also went for an ethereal frock in a similar hue.

The TOWIE cast were also out in force with Amy Childs opting for a blue strapless long frock. She was joined by Sam and Jessica who kept it classic in black frocks.

And black was also the order of the day for Kimberley Walsh who looked stunning in a long black dress with lace sleeves, Coleen Rooney, Holly Willoughby and Emma Bunton.
Brightening up the red carpet was X Factor judge Tulisa who went for a patterned netted frock. See all the fashions in the gallery below.

Pictures: Rihanna’s Madame Tussauds waxwork model

By Andrea Petrou on October 3rd, 2011

You know you’ve made it when you get a covert spot in Madame Tussauds, so we assume Rihanna must be on cloud nine following the unveiling of her waxwork doppelganger.

Unlike some of the models at the museum, RiRi’s waxwork, which takes centre stage in the interactive Music Zone alongside Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga and the late Amy Winehouse, is a good resemblance to the star.

And it also shows off her sexy style perfectly,  with a long black dress complete with raunchy side split, which the star wore to perform her duet with Matt Cardle on the UK final of ‘The X Factor’ last year. Her look was finished off with the statement RiRi red hair.

The figure took four months to complete and cost £150,000.
