The 4 Best Dressed at The Oscars 2013
This year’s Oscars ceremony brought in the classic, simple and elegant look from the ladies and men hitting the red carpet and attending the show. The colour that took the red carpet by storm? None other than the subtle and glorious Cream.
Here are our creme de la creme of the hottest and best dressed celebs at the Academy Awards 2013.
Jennifer Laurence in Dior Haute Couture!
The Best Actress award winner of the night, Jennifer, wore this voluptuous Dior Haute Couture dress. It was a bit much for her to carry off as she found it to trip her up as she went to collect her statue. She changed into something more comfortable for the famed Vanity Fair after-party.
Halle Berry in Versace
At this year’s Oscars, the 46-year-old wowed the audience in a plunging metallic Versace gown on the star-studded red carpet.
Naomi Watts in Armani Privé
This dress was definately one of the show stoppers of the night. The Best Actress nominee stole the show at the red carpet with this dress from Armani Privé; with silver sequins and cutouts, this made the perfect statement - sexy, eye-catching and sophisticated. Perfect!

Johannes Huebl Dresses like Every Man Should Dress!
Johannes Huebl is a German model who put his name on the map when he started dating socialite and star of The City, Olivia Palermo.
Johannes is not only hot and European but he dresses like EVERY MAN should dress and we really like what we see (in more ways than one!)
Here’s a little background on Johannes Huebl and what his style is all about!
Let me show you some examples of what I mean…
(btw my favourite look from the both of them)
Let’s not forget who is by his side in every one of these pictures, his long-time girlfriend, Olivia Palermo from MTV’s The City. She is also a style queen and model and sets the standards for simple and classic beauty. We should all take note here, ladies.
Let us conclude here and say, this man is hot, European, dresses well, has talent and has ambition! What more could we ask for in a man?!
Now, where can i get me one of these?
Kelly Osbourne wins Ultimate Style Icon at Cosmopolitan Women of The Year Awards!
First of all, Kelly, we love you and you go girl for your personal achievements!
Second of all, the transformation that Kelly has made over the years is just wonderfully inspiring.
Ambition is a key factor in my personal life and i commend Kelly for getting to the place she wanted to be.
Kelly is a fully-fledged fashionista to you and me but the 28-year-old star couldn’t hide her disbelief as she was the recipient of the Ultimate Style Award at Tuesday night’s Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of The Year Awards 2012 with VO5.
Well done Kel!
Taking to the stage at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, she said: ‘I used to look like s**t. I never thought I’d get a style award. And Cosmo putting me on their cover a couple of years ago did wonders for my self-esteem.’
Showing off her trim figure in a form-fitting floral print silver and lilac silk dress, the Fashion Police host looked simply stunning.
While her dress accentuated her slim waist, her shoes added height to her frame with a pair of towering peep-toe stilettos, while she kept her lilac curls swept to one side.

Will this Chanel Bag make it to the streets?
The Runway can be one scary place for the average Fashionista! The pressure of finding the newest trend in time, being the first to spot it, trying to find the right way to take it from the runway to the the streets the right way!
The newest BIG trend/item du jour to hit the runway and (possibly) make it to the streets is the enormous and slightly ridiculous hula hoop shaped Chanel bag (intended for use as a beach bag), designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Paris Fashion Week’s Chanel Show.
The French design house delivered a triumphant collection at the luxurious setting of the Grand Palais hosting some stellar front row eye candy including the likes of Jennifer Lopez and her four-year-old daughter Emme - both clutching Chanel bags.
The question is, will this ‘Bag’ make it to the streets? We hope not…

How to look Fashion Week Cool
Do you wish to get snapped by a photographer whilst out and about during Fashion Week? Make it on the ‘Street Style’ pages of your favourite fashions blogs or sites? Well here’s how…
Wherever you are, most major (fashion capital) cities will be hosting Fashion week and it’s time to get yourself noticed…whether you’re near an event or not.
In the back of your mind you’re thinking…”what if i identically bump into Anna Wintour and her team?”. You need to be prepared, right? You never know if there will be a street style photographer around the next corner.
Unfortunately, many of you are probably going to experience the shows through the magic of social media, and Live streamed shows plus reviews just like us at Fashion Pop (so, don’t worry - we didn’t make it there either)
With real-time updates, Instagrams and tweets from editors and bloggers – you don’t even have to be there to feel like a part of the magic that is unfolding.
Imagined or real – what would be your dream outfit for sitting front row at your favourite designer’s Spring/Summer 2013 show. Would you keep things polished and professional in a pencil skirt and blouse or go for that relaxed, model-off-duty jeans and a cool t-shirt look? Big, dark sunglasses? Sky-high heels?
The best places to make your imagination unfold is by using a collage on Polyvore or Shopstyle or you could even try an at-home photoshoot. Get started on your ultimate headed-to-the-tents look and share it with your community of friends on whatever platform makes you happy!
Golden Touch - THE models that hit the London 2012 Closing Ceremony runway
One of the best parts of the closing ceremony earlier this week was the showcase of what England is all about. Apart from Music, which was a big part of the show (during the opening ceremony too), and a part of British culture was the Fashion and the mark we have left on the fashion world! They did a great job walking out in British designers showcasing to the rest of the world what great British fashion is all about.
The line up of our top models included some mainstream popular faces that we know and love as well as some that left us asking…who?!
Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Karen Elson, David Gandy, Jourdan Dunn, Georgia May Jagger, Stella Tennant, Lily Cole and Lily Donaldson.
I guess that ‘bad teeth’ stereotype can be kicked out of the window, huh?
The designer threads worn by the beautiful people as well as the models themselves were featured in Vogue’s famous September Issue - historically the biggest selling edition of the year, every year!
Let’s begin with the breakdown of who wore what.
Naomi Campbell looked elegant in Alexander McQueen.
Kate Moss shone in Alexander McQueen too.
Karen Elson looked stunning in Burberry.
David Gandy looks hot (as hell) in Paul Smith. Have you seen his blog?
Jourdan Dunn made us jealous in Jonathan Saunders and Stephen Jones.
Georgia May Jagger surprisingly wore Victoria Beckham.
Stella Tennant looked amazing in Christopher Kane.
Lily Cole looked pretty in Erdem.
Lily Donaldson dazzled us in Vivienne Westwood.
Check out the rest of the September issue’s dresses and outfits at Vogue.co.uk.
What do these materials, designs and colours mean for the coming season?
A lot more ‘new’ materials will be used like the fit-and-flare high-shine gold gazar dress worn by Georgia May Jagger, made by Victoria Beckham.
We think the White and Gold combination will be a big Autumn/Winter fixture as well as the gold floral lace, sequins, and crystal elements.
Let’s hope these elements make it to the high-street for you and me because who doesn’t love a sparkly christmas and new years!
Keep your Fashion Popping!
How to look cool in glasses…design your own like Victoria Beckham did!
We love the geek chic look and we know you do too (come on…don’t deny it).
Victoria Beckham has come out with her own line of designer spectacles, surprisingly named Victoria Beckham.
The mum-of-four launched her optical collection for spring/summer 2013 today in London.
The six styles, manufactured in partnership with Cutler and Gross, will go on sale at retailers at Silmo Paris from January 2013 costing from £295-£340.
Each piece in the collection is handcrafted in Italy and has distinctive styling on each frame with a ‘V’ tip at the end of each arm for the added touch.
The range will include aviator styles and large dark frames, some of which are unisex and others that are more feminine.
The star said her husband David is a fan of the heavy square frames which she also favours herself.
The reason why Victoria launched this range was simple…she needs to wear glasses but she hasn’t found glasses that suit her or that she particularly likes.
We wish it was that simple for us when we can’t find something that fits us! Good on ya girl!
Here’s how Victoria looks in her range.
Stella McCartney: Proud to be the designer of TeamGB’s uniforms
Think British design and who comes to mind…none other than Stella McCartney. she was rightfully chosen to design Team GB’s outfits for the Olympic events including the opening ceremony!
The great British designer has done us proud in London with a real set of gold medal deserving kits. The Adidas by Stella McCartney Team GB kits include the Gold and white opening ceremony tracksuits, the athletics gear, tennis kits, and basically every event’s outfits.
Team GB’s opening ceremony outfits turned a few heads:
Other Olympic teams outfit designers:
Castro (Opening Ceremony) - Israel:
Hermes (Equestrian team) - France:
Ralph Lauren - USA:
Giorgio Armani and Prada - Italy:
Salvatore Ferragamo - San Marino:
Behind the scenes, Stella was having some fun of her own leading up to the main event.
Days before London’s big salute, McCartney was busy snapping pics from behind the scenes, offering an inside glimpse on everything from her own clothing choice (“From a fashion perspective, I went for a total gold look,” she told Vogue of her shimmering track suit) to the vibe backstage at the stadium.
She documented her fun on her Instagram account (Stella_McCartney)
Here are some of the pics from her account! Did we say #Jealous! Only joking Stella…we love you!
Jumping for joy in her jumpsuit?:

Women on a budget are painting their shoe soles red to get the Louboutin look for (much) less
Sales of red gloss paint have ‘soared’ 40 per cent at Homebase in the UK as women find the cheapest way to get the Louboutin look is to Do It Yourself.
Cash-strapped women are painting their shoe soles red to get the Louboutin look for less
Sales of red gloss paint have ‘soared’ 40 per cent at Homebase as women find the cheapest way to get the Louboutin look is to do it yourself.
Wannabe Victoria Beckhams are buying red tester paint pots and painting the soles of their shoes to recreate iconic Louboutin heels on a budget.
Sales of red gloss colours such as Duracoat’s ‘Flame’ and ‘Show Stopper’ have soared by 40 per cent compared to the same period last year and Homebase claim the surge is due to women copying the Louboutin shoes worn by their style icons which retail for up to £635.
Christian Louboutin famously came up with the idea of giving all his designs a distinctive red sole in 1992 after painting an assistant’s nail polish onto the bottom of a pair of shoes, because he felt the shoes “lacked energy”. A legend was born, and in no time, flashing a red sole became a badge of honour for the fashion pack and Hollywood stars alike.
Homebase senior paint buyer Richard Johnson, said: “We’re amazed at this new trend. The tester pots have enough paint to cover the sole of an average sized shoe, and if you apply it properly it will last for longer and look like the real thing.”
if you fancy trying this for yourself, a tester pot will cost you £1.59, though if you’re planning on upgrading your entire shoe collection, it’s probably more cost-effective to go for a 2.5 litre pot for £17.99.
LOL…we are actually giggling at this quite clever idea!
The Beckham Clan: The Most Stylish Bunch EVER!
The family made their way through LAX en masse to catch a flight to London this week and they were showcasing effortless summer style for their journey.
Victoria stood out in a leather dress which displayed her summer tan with brown accessories, while the rest of the clan appeared to be colour coordinated in blue and white.
David was casual in a faded denim shirt and khaki trousers, as he carried little Harper (CUTEST little baby around!), who turns one next week, through the terminal.
David sported a lovely Louis Vuitton travel bag on his shoulder, which topped off his outfit with some real class!
Middle son Romeo also wore a denim shirt, with dark jeans and bright red converse.
Cruz, looking cool as ever with his arms crossed in front of him, wore a white shirt over a grey T-shirt and jeans.
Eldest son Brooklyn wore a simple white long-sleeved T-shirt with black jeans.
Little Harper looked angelic in a white dress, a bow headband and nude sandals.
The Fashionable family: The Beckhams showcased their winter style when they flew home for Christmas.
In conclusion: WE LOVE THE BECKHAMS!
