Shopping Spot: Buy Rare Fashion yellow ruffle mini dress with front zip online as seen on Jessica Wright on a night out in Liverpool for 'The Only Way Is Essex' and 'Hollyoaks' cast members.
After a steady stream of designer dresses, it's time to get back to some High Street shopping spots, and the event here was a gathering of 'The Only Way Is Essex' meets Hollyoaks. The cast of TOWIE was in Liverpool yesterday and not only enjoyed a tour of the soap set, but obviously enjoyed a night out with some of the Hollyoaks cast.
Fashion is why you're here, and Jessica Wright wore a sassy yellow tiered dress that I had seen online, but it took me a minute to realize what was different! This is a multi-tiered lemon yellow front zip dress by Rare, and it looks like Jessica remove the belt - I have to say the dress
Shopping Spot: Buy Azzedine Alaia red & black knit dress online as seen on Katherine Jenkins at Royal Ascot on June 15th & Kelly Ripa.
How about this fabulous dress trend-spotted twice..? And not to distract from the fashion topic at hand, but take a look at the fellas next to the blondes in the dress!
The blondes I'm talking about are Katherine Jenkins and Kelly Ripa wearing Azzedine Alaia.. the label that has been quietly been enjoying plenty of celebrity wear in the past six months. In case you haven't noticed, Alaia has been in the Top 10 of the Designer Charts for a while now. Every week there's a new sighting.. and it's totally fine with me that it's often the same dress!
Katherine looked absolutely gorgeous at Royal Ascot - these are photos from Day 2, and I'm guessing fiance
Shopping Spot: Buy Isabel Marant stretch lace collection online as seen on Lisa Snowdon & Katy G.
I already have Isabel Marant listed as "What's Hot" on the main site, and that shows no sign of abating anytime soon! There is something about this label that celebrities have been drawn to, I think it's the uniqueness, and perhaps even the fabrics.
Lisa Snowdon attended the Capital FM Summertime Ball at Wembley Stadium wearing a dress that was already covered here.. when herself and Kate Walsh wore it 6,000 miles apart on the same day! This is the Dali dress by Isabel Marant in cobalt blue, a super light organic cotton crochet stretch lace dress with 3/4 sleeves.
Now I don't think the fact that Lisa wore this twice is anything to write about, but what IS interesting here is
Shopping Spot: Buy Whistles ivory & taupe lace dress online as seen on Samia Smith at the British Soap Awards at Granada Television Studios on May 14, 2011
I was just browsing through some past coverage and realized I completely forgot to share a High Street dress from the British Soap Awards last month! I'm talking about the lovely Maria from Coronation Street, Samia Smith... hey, will she be returning to her maiden name..? Interesting trend... Cheryl Cole seems to have kept Ashley's name and they're no longer married anymore either. Oh well.
Back to fashion, when you see these photos, it would be easy to assume Samia was wearing a designer dress! She looks poised and pretty in a two-tone lace dress in ivory and taupe.. this is actually the
Update August 11, 2011: Cat wore the same dress on tonight's US Finale of 'So You Think You Can Dance'..!
Spot: Markus Lupfer red sequin dress as seen on Cat Deeley on 'So You Think You Can Dance' Final - June 11th, 2011.
Cat Deeley went for a major splash of bold colour last night, and quite the sparkle, for the final of BBC 'So You Think You Can Dance'.. and a big congrats to Matt for winning (what a talented bunch they were!).
I've been following Cat's fashion for the duration of the show, and somehow she managed to make her legs look even longer than before last night (if it weren't for Luke, she would have towered over all the dancers!). She wore a sparkling red dress with three-quarter length sleeves and open back by Markus Lupfer. And from what I understand, this is a custom dress, which would make sense as the only red I have seen by Markus Lupfer
Shopping Spot: Buy L.K Bennett off-white handbag online as seen on Pippa Middleton out & about in London.
It's time for a Celebrity Handbag Update, and my goodness those Middleton girls certainly have sparked major interest in high street labels lately! Personally I think it's great - the only downside here is that certain items are selling out really quickly. The L.K. Bennett Agata rose sandal (as seen on Kate) lasted only a couple of days online, but here is another L.K.Bennett item for your shopping pleasure!
Pippa is proving to be VERY popular, and has been snapped on more than one occasion carrying the Annina handbag by L.K Bennett. Described as both 'totally practical and stylish', Pippa appears to have herself the Lilywhite version, but there are more colours to choose from!
Just catching up after another travel day (and five hour delay, but don't get me started.. it was a fab trip, spotted the Beckhams, Rachel Zoe and a unbelievably gorgeous Tyra Banks.. for real, she is stunning!) - I wanted to wrap up some notables from the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London...
Kim Kardashian knowns how to make a fashion statement, she went straight for a strapless black lace fishtail gown by Dolce & Gabbana. Kim looked over-the-top va-va-voom, and yes yes congrats on the $2 million engagement ring.. but UK event, UK award.. and she doesn't wear at UK label..? Juts my observation.
Daisy Lowe continues to surprise me, I'm never sure what to expect, she really is a fashion chameleon.. for the Glamour Women of the Year Awards she went for a bright summer
