What I Wore: Prints Charming

3rd December, 2019

There’s something about contrasting prints that makes for a really strong look. It’s always a little unexpected and sometimes working really different prints against each other helps each one stand out a little more. This dress by Rebecca Vallance is a great example of this, working a fun spotted print with a floral collar. The midi length is just right to work the dress for different occasions, particularly a work event or party. Also the long sleeves mean it will be able to extend into the cooler months, ensuring it has a lot of longevity.

To keep the look polished, I opted for classic Tods leather loafers. The simple style makes it a comfortable shoe option for days when I’m on the go, and the ‘T’ logo plaque helps to elevate it into something a little more special. I wanted my bag to provide a contrast feature so I opted for a tan leather bag with top handle. The structured style has a classic vibe while being roomy enough to carry a day’s worth of essentials. A pair of fun triangular shaped frames is a more modern take on classic black sunnies and helped to add an interesting finishing touch to this look.

What I Wore: Into the Blue

17th September, 2019

Long sleeved dresses are a chic staple that I think every woman should have in her wardrobe. The below Colovos dress is a great new addition to my closet and it’s proven itself to be ultra wearable, and so versatile too. I love the cosy feel of a rib dress, which ticks the a major box as I’m all about comfort dressing, but it also looks polished which makes it perfect for wearing to a variety of different occasions. What I do love about it however is the colour blocking pattern. The blue tones work great against each other and really add a striking touch. Whilst the handkerchief hem gives it an interesting silhouette.

I wanted to add some refined accessories to this outfit so opted for pieces that were sleek and simple. The top handle bag by The Daily Edited is big enough to house my essentials but small enough to look ultra polished and I love the fact that its shape is really modern. Whilst simple strappy shoes by Gianvito Rossi help finish off this ensemble, adding an elegant element that’s also right on trend.

Celeb look of the week: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

22nd January, 2016


If this amazing red carpet appearance is anything to go by I can’t wait to see what newly engaged Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears to walk down the aisle. This black Saint Laurent gown with its asymmetrical neckline and thigh high split brought just the right balance of glamour and elegance to the red carpet at the Crtitics’ Choice Awards. Love the matching YSL clutch.

The Baby Doll look focuses on a strong ‘cat’s eye’. From day to night, this look suits all occasions. I caught up with makeup artist Monika Bunic to find out how to achieve the perfect eyeliner shape to create that 1950’s old Hollywood glamour while keeping a modern edge with a fresh and luminous foundation glow.

What’s the key feature of the Babydoll Look?

The Babydoll Look is all about the wing-tipped eyeliner, and making a bold statement by creating a ‘cat’s eye’ shape above the top lashes. Start with a precision felt-tip eyeliner, like YSL’s ‘Effet Faux Cils Eyeliner’ in Black, and draw a strong, precise line that starts at the inner corner of the eye, and travels out to the edge of the eye, flicking up carefully at the end. For a striking look, thicken up the line by building it up stroke by stroke. Keep the rest of the eye simple with a light sweep of eye shadow close to the eye line, and lashings of YSL Shocking Black Mascara.

What are the other key products that will complement this look?

Every great make-up look starts with a radiant, luminous base, so make sure you look for a foundation that has a water base formulation. Yves Saint Laurent’s award-winning Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation is perfect for this, created in a spectrum of 15 shades covering gold-base, pink-base and neutral-base skintones. For the ultimate make-up artist finish, apply using Yves Saint Laurent’s Foundation Brush, which features a tapered edge to ensure a flawless coverage. Leave your foundation to ‘set’ for a couple of minutes before using Touche Éclat to highlight and banish shadows under eyes, under the brow bone, down the bridge of the nose and on the cupid’s bow above the upper lip.
