Get the look: Kate Middleton’s primrose yellow Jenny Packham dress

By Andrea Petrou on July 13th, 2011

Kate's Jenny Packham dress made waves

The fashion world has been buzzing with excitement over Kate Middleton’s latest dresses.

However one that really sticks in our minds is the primrose yellow Jenny Packham dress the Duchess wore to help a seriously ill little girl to realise her dream of meeting a real life princess on the last day of her Canada tour with Prince William.

Not only was this dress simple, but the pleats and pale hue are right on-trend for this season. We’ve therefore scoured the net to find you the most similar for a fraction of the price.

Our top five are in the gallery above.

Get the look: Julia Restoin-Roitfeld

Looking darkly glamorous in lots of black lace at the première of Black Swan

A certain raven-haired French beauty has been popping up at every event recently, and it’s about time we showed her some respect for her darkly glamorous and sexy approach to fashion. Yep, it’s It-girl Julia Restoin Roitfeld, poster girl for Tom Ford and daughter of the brilliant Carine. She’s been silently and mysteriously popping up in the front row for all the biggest fashion shows now, hanging out with the likes of Leigh Lezark and other fashion glitterati, but for some reason unknown we haven’t written a “Get the look” for her yet. So here you go, readers!

What we love about Julia, despite enviably good genes and very shiny hair, is her slightly shambolic approach to fashion. Swathes of black lace, trailing skirts, witch boots and slightly fetish-y leather are all key essentials to her look, no matter what the occasion. Reminiscent of the likes of Mary-Kate Olsen and Helena Bonham-Carter before her, Julia has the ability to look as if whatever she’s wearing has just been thrown on at the last minute. She may wear little to no colour, ever, but when the goth look is working so well for you why stop?

Luckily for any hopeful copycats, you don’t need to be the friend of a trillion designers like Julia to achieve this look – the gothic lace trend is still going strong on  the high street at totally affordable prices, and little black dresses will never go out of fashion. If you want to give dressing like Julia a go, check out the gallery above for our favourite pieces. And when it comes to dressing head to toe in lace and sheer peekaboo fabrics, pile it on – when it comes to the Restoin Roitfeld school of fashion, more is more.

Style icon spotlight: Debbie Harry

By emilyborrett on April 8th, 2011

Fierce, studded and punky, Debbie's look often involved a lot of fetish-y leather. Check out those over-the-knee boots

Yesterday we went back to the 1960s to celebrate the classic style of Factory superstar and rich socialite Edie Sedgwick – but today we’re fast-forwarding to 1979 in New York, where girl power was having it’s first proper punk moment. Heading up a wave of new strong, confident girl rockers was the mysterious and beautiful Debbie Harry, ex Playboy Bunny turned punk queen.

With her messy mop of ice-blonde hair, nonchalant attitude and tough-girl dress sense, she was the girl that everyone wanted to be (even some of the boys). Whether she was shooting a music video in a laidback Grecian dress or performing onstage with Blondie in nothing more than a band T-shirt and knickers, everyone wanted a piece of the Debbie Harry magic – and they still do. Celebrities such as Kirsten Dunst and Kate Moss cite Debbie Harry as one of their style heroes – she’s one of mine, too.

The distressed, rough-around-the-edges look is huge again at the monent, with designers such as Alexander Wang and Balenciaga giving the black leather n’ lace look a modern revamp. It’s one of the absolute easiest styles to try out – all you need is a pair of cool shades and attitude. Debbie’s dress sense was very no-frills, no-fuss – just sling a leather jacket over your favourite old T-shirt, and a slick of red lipstick and you’re good to go.

So here’s Shiny Style’s girl-power salute to the Blondie singer – check out the gallery above for our favourite Debbie Harry looks, and the best copycat finds on the high street.

Get the look: Eliza Doolittle

By Andrea Petrou on January 27th, 2011

By Emily Borrett.

It’s a good time to be popstrel Eliza Doolittle at the moment – she’s got great style, her songs are dominating the charts and she’s just been signed onto the much-coveted books of Select Models. Amidst a whole gang of preening, primped stars done up to the nines at every occasion, Eliza’s endearing scruffiness and laid-back cool has won us over.

Instead of wearing a long gown or a frock made out of goose feathers and Swarovski crystals to perform, Eliza prefers to step onstage in an iconic pair of Nike high-tops, a slouchy graphic-printed t-shirt and some teensy shorts to show off her pins. Dressed for going to the beach and climbing trees bare-legged, her laid-back tomboy style is an absolute fresh breath of air to ShinyStyle.

We’ve looked all over the internet and found pieces here and there that we’re sure Miss Doolittle would approve of. Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think.

Shiny’s new fashion crush: Chloe Moretz

By Andrea Petrou on December 16th, 2010

By Emily Borrett.

There seems to be an emergence of mini-talents taking over the world at the moment – Justin Beiber is experiencing an outbreak of hysteria reminiscent of the rise of the Beatles in the 1960s, Tavi Gevinson is in the front row for every fashion show and Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” is officially the catchiest song in the world. But today we want to talk about Chloe Moretz, the tiny actress who’s proving to be one of 2010’s hottest talents, having risen to fame as the potty-mouthed Hit Girl in superhero film Kick-Ass.

And we love her look. Is this how every thirteen year old girl should dress? Probably. She’s adorable – all wide, kittenish eyes, heart-shaped face and bobbed vintage curls, stepping out to events and awards ceremonies wearing sweet, neat little tunic dresses, opaque tights and mary-jane heels. (Apparently her mum is very particular about what the tween can and can’t wear out because she’s so young, but the mary janes have the parental seal of approval.) She is like a little doll that we want to tuck under our arm and dress up.

Whether you’re 13 or 30, Chloe’s rocking a timeless, classic style that works whatever age you are. If Karl Lagerfeld’s letting her wear his designs, then you know she’s probably one to watch. Check out the gallery below for our favourite Chloe Moretz fashion moments, and where you can get similar pieces.

Get the look: Jaime Winstone’s party-girl style

By Andrea Petrou on December 15th, 2010

By Emily Borrett.

Poor old Jaime Winstone. Famous for her mish-mash of different styles and fun dress sense, she’s had a bit of flak in the gossip rags and tabloids for the monochrome Holly Fulton maxi-dress she wore out recently. (Which, I might add, I really loved.) Where lovers of high fashion saw drama and edginess, the “What were you thinking?” pages saw a woman that they thought looked downright silly. But what is so wrong with looking a bit silly? Is silliness not, after all, what the British fashion industry has been built upon? The fashion world would be a different place if the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Pam Hogg decided to stick with Queen Mother-esque twinsets and kitten heels, no?

And ’tis the season to be silly, after all. Tinsel, glitter, jewels, embellishment and brocade – Jaime just whacks it all on and heads out to the party, and that’s why ShinyStyle likes her. Whether she’s dressed like a futuristic punk, a 1930s débutante or a spaced-out acid hallicunation of colour,  she works the look with gusto and confidence. Check the gallery below for three of our favourite of the actress’ latest outfits, and the places you’ll need to go to get her style.

Steal her style: Michelle Williams

By Andrea Petrou on December 15th, 2010

By Emily Borrett.

I love Michelle Williams. Everything about the way that she dresses sums up what is so great about fashion and dressing today – from the boyish androgyny of her chic crop to her ladylike dresses and quirky accessories that she teams together, she’s everything a modern fashion-loving woman should be.

She’s had an extremely difficult time over the past few years, following the death of her estranged husband Heath Ledger, but ever since she’s always been incredibly brave and put her best well-shod foot forward. A favourite moment of ours has to be that Erdem dress that she wore at the London Film festival this year, hot off the catwalks – it had originally been a minidress, but clever Michelle asked for hers to be altered for a more ladylike skirt length, and TA-DA! Fashion magic happened. It’s that innovative strive for perfection and creativity that we love about her.

Nude, romance, ruffles, studs, bows and lace – all massive trends at the moment, especially now that it’s party season, and Michelle Williams is our poster-girl when it comes to getting these looks down. Check out the gallery below for some of our favourite of her looks, and pieces to help you steal her style.

Get the look: Chanel Iman

By Andrea Petrou on November 25th, 2010

By Emily Borrett.

The model looked stunning last month at a gala in NYC, wearing a sequined maxi dress, headband and sultry velvet blazer. We love.

Picture 1 of 10

With all the upcoming parties and events that get rammed into your diary during winter, everyone has been very preoccupied what they’re going to be wearing this December. And we’ve found the one woman we should all be trying to emulate at this year’s office party – Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman.

Obviously, she’s stunning and all that – her mix of African and Korean roots have blessed her facially – but more importantly, she has got the party look nailed and is a walking advert for the motto that sometimes more  is more. Feathers, fur, sequins, metallics and glitter; ’tis the season to pile it all on with a shovel, and have another drink.

We particularly loved the outfit that she wore to a gala in NYC last month, oozing vampy Hollywood glamour in a deep-blue velvet blazer, teamed with a sparkling headband and sequined maxi skirt. This is the way to carry the maxi-length from summer into winter.
