Cannes 2010: Get the bag that Aishwarya RAI wore to the Robin Hood Premier

By Andrea Petrou on May 13th, 2010

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.jpg

Aishwarya RAI is a name we haven’t heard for a while, but she’s been on our fashion radars ever since her role in Bride and Prejudice and Pink Panther.

The actress who made her debut in the Bollywood film industry is known for her ethnic inspired fashion sense and red carpet dresses and shone in a blue lace and net dress alongside Eva Longoria at the Robin Hood premier at this year’s 2010 Cannes Film festival.

However, it wasn’t just the rouched frock we had our eye on, it was also her gorgeous crystal clutch bag so we did a little bit of research and found out that it’s from Swarovski. And you can get your hands on it too for £560.

It may sound like a lot of money, but it’s not often you can say you have a “red carpet bag”.

Armani is a busy man.

It was only this morning that we reported on his design venture with Lady Gaga’s American Idol performance outfit, and now our fashion radars have picked up on another collaboration.

This time the designer has teamed up with friend and singer Alicia Keys to create a range of outfits for the singer’s The Element of Freedom, European Tour.

According to Vogue the wardrobe includes four signature Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani looks, featuring a military leather jacket with crocodile print detailing, a one-shoulder silk chiffon gown in dark grey with intricate beading, and a show-stopping LBD in viscose lamé with a cascade ruffle.

And like any singers outfit the costumes will also come complete with sparkle courtesy of Swarovski crystals, sequins and beading.

Oscar 2010 red carpet predictions: Helen Mirren

By Andrea Petrou on March 7th, 2010

This year iconic British actress Helen Mirren has been nominated for her role in The Last Station. Avid followers of Mirren’s red carpet style will know that the actress always looks elegant in beaded and sleeved frocks made of taffeta, silk and sheer fabrics, which really give her the edge over some other stars.

For the 2007 Oscars the 64 year old, who claims she is “always a mess” unless walking the red carpet, opted for a cream and gold rouched frock by Christian Lacroix with three quarter length beaded sleeves, which she teamed up with Jimmy Choos. She carried on the tradition in 2008 where she opted for a an elegant vibrant red custom-made Georges Chakra satin gown, embellished with Swarovski crystal sleeves and again in 2009 when her slinky frock screamed sophistication, and dare we say, royalty.

So will Dame Helen continue the elegant theme tonight?

We have a strong suspicion she might, and if the rumour mill is anything to go by she may be wearing Christian Lacroix. However it may not be a new style; apparently she asked her publicist if she could pull an old Lacroix out of her closet that she wore to the Oscars a couple years ago.

We have to admit we like her thinking.

View the gallery below to see some more of Helen’s red carpet outfits.

Valentine present ideas: Alice in Wonderland inspired jewellery by Swarovski

By Andrea Petrou on February 9th, 2010

Wonderland and Swarovski.jpg

Tim Burton’s remake of Alice in Wonderland is going to be huge.

Not only because we can’t wait to see what the kooky director has done to one of our favourite childhood books but also the fact that every designer possible, including Tom Binns and Stella McCartney, is jumping in on the act.

Next on the Wonderland bandwagon is our favourite jewellery brand Swarovski, which has teamed up with Disney to create a limited edition range.

Pieces in the Alice in Wonderland collection include a sparrow rose necklace, and charms as well as a cute rabbit pendant.

We’ll be making sure we get our hands on some of these on time

Get the look: Cheryl Cole’s X-Factor ring

By Andrea Petrou on November 9th, 2009

chryl.JPGWe never thought we’d be able to afford anything Cheryl Cole wore on the X-Factor, especially her jewellery but it seems as though all our Christmases have come at once.

Last night the style icon appeared on the show without her wedding ring but instead a stunning ring (aptly named On the Rocks) from the Daniel Swarovski 20th anniversary collection.

We must say we were eyeing it up with a certain amount of jealousy, but now we know we can buy it for £303, we’re much happier. It’s definitely something we’ll be putting on our Christmas list.


Swarvoski brings out another two collections

By Andrea Petrou on August 28th, 2009

Swarovski is turning out its new collection by the glittery dozen this year, hence why I have been talking about it so much.

Now it has launched two more collections (I think someone might have to hide my bank card now).

The first collection to grab me today is this gorgeous range of rings with crystals (well we wouldn’t expect anything else). You can pick a ring with as little or as many crystals are you want. We love the Harlequin ring, which has just one big crystal as its main focus and the Flirt ring has a singular crystal surrounded by individual crystals.

If this wasn’t enough, its second collection gives even more choice. The Nature Reloaded collection, which gives a funky edge to the Swarvoski range by introducing little characters, is an update to the company’s previous range (I know this because I’ve lusting after everything in this collection since last year).

For those that know the collection as well as I do Erika is a little fairy, Elvis, always more gloomy, takes the shape of an insect. If we’ve confused you, have a look at the picture above.


Swarovski gives timeless classics a sparkly makeover

By Andrea Petrou on August 20th, 2009

Thumbnail image for Secret_1.JPGWe haven’t covered jewellery for a while on ShinyStyle and what better way to get the sparkly ball rolling again but with news of Swarovski’s new Autumn Winter 2009/2010 range.

The genius crystal creators have created the Evanescent range, which has given every day and timeless motifs a glamorous and of course sparkly makeover.

We love the key necklace, which the company says has been inspired by those used long ago to open caskets and jewellery boxes, and hangs off two intertwined gold and silver chains. This not only creates a boho look but is also perfect for those who can’t decide what colour jewellery to wear.

The Luck necklace symbolises love and has gold-plated pendants on a long chain. At the end of the chain is a cut-out gold-plated heart, a crystal arrow and an angel’s wing, which we assume, bring you luck.

Hmm wonder if I’ll be lucky enough to convince someone to buy me one of these.

The collection will be in stores from October for a limited time.
