Glastonbury festival: Sienna Miller, Kate Moss and Alexa Chung dance the weekend away

By Andrea Petrou on June 28th, 2010

While festival goers danced the weekend away at Glastonbury the stars we’re also out in force enjoying the bands and showing off their festival fashion. And it seems denim shorts were the trend of the day. Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Emma Watson and Sienna Miller all went for these denim lovelies teaming them up with shirts, ankle boots, and in Sienna’s case an on-trend Trilby hat.

An off duty Kate Nash and Channel 4 presenter Jameela Jamil took the short trend that step further opting for high waisted versions of these. Kate teamed hers up with a loud top, while Jameela went for a sleek black top and sun hat.

On-stage Florence Welch opted for a white leotard with one shoulder detail before changing into a flowing boho style frock to enjoy the rest of the day, while Shakira went for her statement casual look, opting for jeans and a plain top for her stage performance.

Billie Piper was also spotted in a tribal style maxi dress, while Pixie opted for a short black number, which she teamed up with knee high socks.

The Met Ball, as we have said before, is a huge event for celebrities and fashion folk alike.

Many A-listers used this event to show off their impeccable fashion sense (if you missed this see our gallery here), while others used the evetnt to show off their partners, most notably Jessica Biel who turned up with Justin Timberlake and quashing rumours that the pair had split up.

Sienna Miller also showed she and Jude Law were back together by taking him along too.

However other celebs decided to bring along, or chose to be photographed alongside fashion designers, including Emma Watson who posed with Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey and Diane Kruger who posed with Francisco Costa.

How to wear: the New Boho

By Lauren Bravo on April 11th, 2010

RiverIsland2.jpgLauren Bravo writes:

When I was 14, dressing, as it is wont to do at that age, fell into two camps. You were a Townie or a Grunger. That was the choice. Trackie top or a Nirvana hoodie. End of.

My friends decided, as right-on, proactive kind of women, that we deserved more choice. So we invented a third option (I’d like to think Emmeline Pankhurst would have been proud). That option was Boho. We put teeny plaits in our hair, we wore floral-sprigged gypsy tops and corduroy loon pants, we made each other necklaces out of beads. We were the revolutionaries of Davison High School for Girls. Peace.

But the result of our bout of fashion adventurousness is that, like a lot of things you overdo when you’re 14, any mention of boho since has made me shudder. When Sienna Miller did her bit for the cause, with her floaty skirts and Uggs, I looked the other way. When maxi dresses returned with a swishy vengeance in 2007, I bought them and hacked the skirts back to a vampish length.

But when Marni’s models took to the Milan catwalk for S/S 2010 in their floaty dresses with mismatched cardigans, leggings and flat sandals, I felt something. A twinge, deep inside, that seemed to say ‘you’re ready again’.

It should be easier this time round. For starters, there won’t be a bully to follow me round on non-uniform days shouting ‘freak’ until I cry in the hockey cupboard. And this time round, the clothes are so much more enticing. This isn’t the same old boho; this is the new boho.

Part of the problem last time, and the time before, and perhaps every time hippie fashion has emerged since its inception in the ’60s, is that it was so anti-fashion. With its wafty silhouette and high comfort factor, it quite literally lacked edge. There was no oomph, no pow, no whiff of the alpha fashion female. But this time, boho has toughened up its act. It’s about throwing a tailored jacket over the hippie-drippy florals, or teaming a peasant dress with a pair of shoes that say ‘never seen a field in my life.’

Where previous incarnations of the boho babe languished in meadows like a Flake advert, 2010′s is more active. She’s a cowgirl. She cracks a whip, she climbs hills, she milks things. And every once in a while, she tarts herself up and goes to a hoedown. Even better, this time round the look is far more applicable beyond Glastonbury. It can be transferred from the field to a Hoxton bar, to the office, to winter, even.

So what does the new boho look like? There are three key words: Stomp. Swish. And Smoosh. Firstly the stomp has to be there, and most likely in the footwear department. The softly-softly fluff of the Ugg doesn’t cut it anymore – this time the look comes with a newfound utility vibe, which means army boots, Doc Martens, clunky sandals or clogs. Something that could do some damage to a cow trough. See River Island’s Spring/Summer ’10 collection, above left.

Next there’s swish. This means, as with old boho, that there should be a fabric surplus big enough to make a ration book blush. But thankfully it doesn’t need to be in the old standards, smock tops and gypsy skirts, but instead with tiered dresses, long shirts, petticoats and layering. Maxi lengths still have their place for those who can carry them off, but for the rest of us there is a strong case for leg-bearing. The key is contrast. If one element is voluminous, the other should be fitted. Take last season’s body con dress and sit it back with a floaty top or a slouchy denim shirt, then tie a scarf round your head and go feed the chickens (or go to Tesco, whatever). wenn2704714.jpg

Lastly, there’s smoosh. Because the reason boho has such enduring appeal, season after season, is that it lets us be messy. And not artfully messy, in that choreographed, laquered-over, catwalk way, but genuinely a bit sluttish. It’s the easiest and cheapest way to boho up an old outfit; ditch the hair straighteners and load up on dry shampoo, pile on some mismatched jewellery, cart your tatty old holdall around instead of an evening clutch. Dress sharp, then smoosh it up a bit.

Forget Sienna, Nicole and the Rachel Zoe zombies – the new boho has icons of its own. Look to Zooey Deschanel and Vanessa Hudgens (right) in Hollywood, and Brit musical madames Natasha Khan (aka Bat for Lashes) and Lucinda Belle. Or even better, forget the celeb worship altogether and take your inspiration from films and TV. Mix up Katherine Ross in Butch Cassidy with Katherine Ross in The Graduate, and you’re pretty much there.

And the very best thing about the new boho? This time it comes without a side of pretension. Sienna’s sister Savannah Miller, co-designer of the sisters’ Twenty8Twelve range, once described a ‘true bohemian’ as “someone who has the ability to appreciate beauty on a deep level, is a profound romantic, doesn’t know any limits, whose world is their own creation, rather than living in a box”. I think it’s someone who can wear a tired skirt without looking like a Walton. I’ll let you decide which definition you prefer.

We’ve covered many celebrity collaborations for charity, but this has got to be the best one yet.

Kylie Minogue, Claudia Schiffer and Sienna Miller have leant their faces to the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign.

It forms part of the overall charity initiative, which will also see proceeds from clothing and accessories from River Island, My Wardrobe and M&S going to the charity.

Spring trend: Fantastic florals

By Andrea Petrou on March 11th, 2010

The days are getting longer and brighter with many of us seeing a few days of sunshine. And of course, that can only mean one thing. Spring is on it’s way.

We can’t wait for the warmer days and brighter nights but most importantly the opportunity to wear the latest spring trends.

One trend that’s going to be huge this season is florals, which were shown off by designers such as Christian Dior and Chanel at their SS2010 catwalk shows way back in September last year.

These prints have also been spotted on the likes of boho babe Sienna Miller as well as Chanel fanatic Alexa Chung and Sarah Jessica Parker.

So how do you wear, what could be busy, items of clothing? Well the trick here is not too go too overboard. Unlike the double denim trend that’s hitting our wardrobes at the moment, florals should be teamed up with something plain. If you decide on a flowery top, then opt for jeans or a pastel skirt underneath.

And if you go for a skirt or on-trend culottes then pick a plain white or pastel coloured tee.

View our gallery below for our favourite floral picks.

London fashion week

LFW: Matthew Williamson

By Andrea Petrou on February 21st, 2010
Celebrity Front Row Day 3 - LFW Autumn/Winter 2010

Celebrities turned out in their droves today to watch Matthew Williamson’s offerings for autumn/winter 2010.

Yasmin Le Bon and Sienna Miller, looking gorgeous, took the front seat alongside friend Twiggy to watch the designers show, which consisted of fur, silks, leather, beads and wool.

Structured wool dresses made an appearance on the runway as well as fun bright skirts
cape-style tops and gilets.

And the designers smarter collections such as tapered trousers, bolero jackets and just over the knee and evening dresses also made an impact consisting of sparkling and glittery fabrics topped with beading.

But the show wasn’t all glitz and glam with Mr Williamson reintroducing his graphic prints as well as mixing colours we wouldn’t have even thought about including salmon pink.

We’ll be bringing you pictures as we get them.

Sienna Miller sports a Katherine Kwei handbag while taking a stroll in NYC

By Andrea Petrou on November 3rd, 2009

Sienna Miller has long been one of our favourite style icons.

She bought the boho look to the mainstream market and done so well as a fashion icon that she also has her own fashion label, Twenty8Twelve, which she created with her sister.

And we’ll sure you’ll agree that once again the boho beauty looks stunning as she strolled the streets of NYC’s West Village last Friday.

We love her pup Bess, but what’s really caught our eye is her gorgeous handbag.

We did a little bit of handbag investigation work and found out that this little gem is the creation of designer Katherine Kwei.

You can get your hands on this Joyce Carry-All, calf and lambskin bag for $625. Put at the top of your Christmas list now.

Get Sienna Miller’s shoe style

By Andrea Petrou on August 19th, 2009

I’ve always been a fan of Sienna Miller’s dress sense ever since she came into the forefront of my fashion mind with her boho look many moons ago.

And if I’m honest, I’m also a bit envious; she gets it right all the time. So it will come as no surprise to you, that once again she has managed to pull off a trend, which a few other celebs may have struggled with, and that’s the brogue shoe.

Although these have been lurking quietly in the fashion aisle for a good few months now, we think they will be making a fully fledged fashion journey down the high street this season. Now we can’t give you Sienna’s lifestyle but we can you the top brogue buys on the high street.

From Catwalk Queen’s Isabelle...

Much excitement at the MTV Movie Awards last night, with a bewinged Sacha Baron Cohen landing on Eminem’s lap causing an almighty furore from the rapper and his entourage. In the more genteel world of fashion there were plenty of well-dressed stars at the bash.

Rumer Willis
sported an appliqué-ed green frock which complemented her hair, and Hills star Audrina Partridge wore a shimmering coral gown. Sienna Miller combined the two, in a green sparkling outfit from her Twenty8Twelve label. Cameron Diaz, although casually dressed, looked stunning in a leopard print top, jeans and violet boots.

While E! is broadcasting the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards red carpet tonight, our Brit blogging sisters at Catwalk Queen got the goods as the event was happening last night during the Grammys. According to CQ’s Helen Lee, black was again a big trend. But instead of donning boring Little Black Dresses, Jessica Biel, Amanda Peet and Sienna Miller are proving their style credentials. Jessica and Sienna look like glamorous screen goddesses in their form fitting black dresses which seem to flow along their curves and highlight all the right areas. Helen loves Sienna’s plunging back and her make up. Amanda looks adorable as per usual in her one shouldered dress, finished off with ruffle detail and a headband…
