Oriental inspiration from Katy Perry to the high street

31 Aug

There is only one person I look out for at music awards ceremonies – Ms Katy Perry. This girl plans meticulously and goes the whole 10 yards with her entire head-to-toe look, she really commits. And the girl has enough chutzpah to pull off any look. Take her Oriental-inspired get up at the 2011 VMAs, par exemple. The baby blue Atelier Versace press is absolutely stunning, with it’s embroidered cherry blossom shaped crystals and cut outs. Most would draw the line there but Katy accessoried with a cute matching, killer Jimmy Choos and candy pink hair. She sort of looks part Harajuku girl, part anime babe and totally awesome. 

If you feel inspired by Ms Perry and her oriental look, the high street is full of oriental-inspired prints to help you emulate a much more toned down version of her outfit…

London Fashion Week – Julien Macdonald Spring/Summer 2011

26 Sep

This was probably the most high profile show I attended during London Fashion Week and it certainly didn’t disappoint! I found myself right at the front of the queue to get in and saw many a famous face walk into the venue – Michelle Williams (Destiny’s Child), Cat Deely, Anna Dello Russo, Kate Lanphear, Olivia Palermo, Elle MacPherson and of course Amber Rose. The collection itself blew me away, definitely one of my favourites of Fashion Week. The collection featured billowing skirts, floaty dresses with trains, cobweb knits and slouchy tops in chiffon and parachute silks. It was such an opulent, feminine and girly collection, perfect for Spring.
