Bobby Cole Norris’ The Sirius Collection In Aid Of Hopefield Animal Sanctuary!

I’ve always liked The Only Way is Essex star Bobby Cole Norris. He seems really down-to -earth and interesting. But he has gone up even further in my estimation since I read that his collection of nine unisex t-shirts and the famous Schlong Thongs which there is five of that he and ex-boyfriend fellow Towie star Harry Derbidge wore in Marbella recently entitled, the Sirius Collection supported the Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood. I love animals. I always have and I love seeing any help they get towards their welfare and with Bobby’s profile it is sure to help the charity a lot.

Bobby said:

“My first line with the Sirius Collection comes from a passion to create really cool and design led pieces that appeal to everyone of all ages. I have been hands on in developing the idea, working with the animal sanctuary and leading the designers. I feel proud to have developed a range that reflects my style and ensures the wearer ‘shines’ standing out from a crowd when wearing them!”

Hopefield Animal Sanctuary offered some of its animals to model the collection when Bobby went in search of a BFF for his adorable terrier Beau, who inspired the collection in the first place. The cutest little thing. Love him.

Hopefileld Managers, David Schlaich and Lianne Angliss said:

“We are so happy to have Bobby on board helping the sanctuary in such a fun way. As a huge animal lover, Bobby is a great advocator for us, and the animals loved modelling for him”.

Sirius means two things in conjunction with the collection as Sirius means the brightest star in the night sky and Bobby wanted to create a collection which could help the wearer stand out in the crowd and the word also means the “Dog Star”.

The Schlong Thongs come in black, white, camo, purple and fuchsia while the t-shirts include many features that represent the charities cause such as a pug wearing glasses and a dickie bow with the words #Pash4Fash below the little pet, a pig in a photoframe wearing sunglasses looking all urban with the words I Woke Up Like This! underneath, the adorable little Yorkshire terrier Beau printed all over one t-shirt, two colourful parrot prints tops and a reptile picture on another top while there was also crown, banana and zebra print tops.

I really like the collection. It’s very unique. You get sick of the same thing been created over and over and again but this collection is a breath of fresh air and the animals are adorable. Been someone who loves animals, I couldn’t stop awwwing at the tops.

 

The collection will be sold online in aid of the charity which for more than thirty years has been rescuing abused, abandoned and neglected animals. The sanctuary looks after more than 300 animals like dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, reptiles and many more and is funded completely by donations from the public.

 

The collection will help Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Essex.

The collection is available from www.siriuscollection.co.uk for £25 each, with £1.50 of each top sold going to Hopefield Animal Sanctuary.

 

 

Pastel Heaven At Burberry For The New Season!

Burberry has been the epitome of luxury for years and the brand is in safe hands every season with Christopher Bailey at the helm. This season’s output has been no exception to the rule with a catwalk filled with many truly stunning pieces for you to incorporate into your wardrobe for the season.

 

Key pieces in the designer’s ouvere this season were pale lilac trench coats, soft cashmere jumpers and feminine lacy dresses. The primarily pastel colour palette gave off a carefree, easy aura celebrating vibrancy, joy and femininity. The wide variety of stunning looks were accessorised with bags in shades of dark orange or pink, beautiful belts and breathtaking brooches which model Cara Delevingne and co wore beautifully.

 

In terms of print, Bailey chose to lose the romance by excluding love hearts in favour of polka dots combined with stripes for a collection that otherwise has a romantic feel to it of falling in love in the summertime. Or the spring. Take your pick. Either way, it was another amazing triumph for this very talented designer.

 

The Best Style From The Met Ball!

The Met Ball is always a highlight on the fashion calender with all the stars coming out in all their finery and this year’s gala, set as always in New York, was no exception as the stars shone once again. Here is my picks of the best dressed on the big night.

David and Victoria BeckhamImage

Arriving hand-in-hand the couple wore matching outfits as Victoria went for a strapless cream floor-length dress which she designed herself and she paired her stunning dress with a simple matching bracelet and earrings while her hubby went for a cream blazer which he paired with black trousers and a black bow tie which ensured that he looked incredibly stylish.

Kendall Jenner Image

It is brilliant when someone attends such a prestigious event representing the fashion from the high street and ok, it was a custom made Topshop dress but it was still Topshop. And Kendall Jenner looked absolutely stunning in it. It was one of the best outfits from the night. She teamed the gold stunning dress with a matching clutch and a sparkling necklace. Perfection.

Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka Image

Actor Neil Patrick Harris and his fiance David Burtka looked dapper in matching crop top tuxes paired with long tails. Neil wore a black and white tuxedo and a floor-length black blazer which cropped just above his stomach and fell behind his back in two sets of tails. He also wore eyeliner adding a touch of rock ‘n’ roll to the look while his fiance wore a checkered coat teamed with striped pants.

Matt Bomer

Matt Bomer always looks stylish and for the Met Ball this year he arrived in Calvin Klein Collection looking just as stylish as ever in a perfectly crafted and understated suit.

Louis Vuitton Scarves 2014!

Nicholas Ghesquiere is doing a fab job at Louis Vuitton!

Nicholas Ghesquiere is doing a fab job at Louis Vuitton!

French luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton has a rich heritage. I absolutely love it! Though I can’t afford it I love it! They always do an amazing collection filled with sophistication and excitement and for this season the label is following it’s usual plans for scarves! And I am delighted about it!

Louis Vuitton will carry on collaborating with artists with a unique style like INTI, Andre Saraiva and Kenny Scharf in a bid to make scarves which are edgy and fresh. The street art creations are colourful, unique and downright fabulous darlings! The beautiful pieces come in many colours from yellow tones to purple tones and also features many stunning blues which are mixed with black, red and muted bright colours. These scarves are the perfect accessory to jazz up a plain outfit or to go with a plain white top.

The Best From Rihanna’s Best River Island Collection!

Rihanna is brilliant at her River Island collections!

Singer Rihanna’s collection for River Island is one of the most anticipated collections of the year. Most of the hype of course has to do with her worldwide success with hits such as Take a Bow, Umbrella and most recently the ballad Stay and the legion of fans she has gained through her stellar career. The fact that her pieces are based on her own style, a style which her fans have been dreaming of coveting, makes them even more appealing to their target market. However the pieces in this collection are impressive items with or without the celebrity name and will appeal to her fans but also many other people. 

The singer who also was a judge on Styled to Rock alongside fellow singer Nicola Roberts and Manchester designer Henry Holland showed her style credentials with a pair of black stiletto sandals which are sleek and simple. For an edgier take on footwear she created black lace up ankle boots. These boots give off a fierce attitude and would be perfect paired with black tights and blue denim shorts. 

Floral is also a feature in her collection in the form of a pair of black floral print trousers and a black sheer floral print blouse which would go perfectly together. If one is more daring they might chose to wear the black floral print crop top with the trousers or if the customer is really brave they may wear the crop top with the black floral print sheer shorts in the collection.  This is a fantastic feature of Rihanna’s collection. She has created numerous pieces which go together such a pink striped blouse in linen which is sleeveless with a pink striped wide leg pair of trousers.  

There is a splash of colour and energy included in the form of many pieces including a stunning red dip hem culotte dress which is striking and really a piece to invest in. There is also a pair of pink knicker shorts which are certainly also for the brave amongst us. A green t-shirt which has a knot front and is tie dye is a unique piece with an eye-catching design.  But this is not the only green tie dye piece in the collection. She has created a crop top and high waisted shorts in a similar design.  

Denim is also a huge feature of the collection. Denim is of course a huge feature in Rihanna’s own style and here she does her own take on denim with a mid wash denim jacket which is oversized and a white pair of shorts with a blue denim jacket tied around the shorts. These pieces give a cool and casual feel to the collection. 

In terms of accessories, a black leather hat with gem stones encrusted on the front is a stand out piece which mixes luxurious glamour with an urban feel. This is the overall theme of Rihanna’s collection. There is urban pieces such as the lace up ankle boots and luxurious pieces like the red dip hem culotte dress. This is why her collection is so fantastic. There is something for everyone while the hat helps one to incorporate a piece of both themes in one item into one’s style. What more could one want?

I managed to get to see the latest stock in Warehouse recently with my sister. I have just picked out a few pieces which I seen in store that caught my eye. They really have some great pieces.

1. My favourite piece from the store currently is this tiny wrist clutch. I fell in love with it the second I saw it!:

My New Crush Marlon Teixeira Stars With Luma Grothe For DSQUARED2!

Marlon Teixeira is roasting hot in the new DSQUARED campaign!

Sexily looking to one side is no obstacle!

Relaxing he even looks fit!

A close-up shot. Sure why not?!

 

Working a pair of shades!

Though the heels are stunning, they would probably ensure a visit for me to the A & E but the best of the outfit, love it!

I can’t even, I am unable to even … Yes I suppose I am having a Tyler Oakley moment! But cut me some slack I have just discovered Marlon Texeira!

If I’m honest and I shouldn’t really say this as a fashion student what first drew me to the new Spring Summer 2014 collection by the amazing DQUARED2 was the incredibly attractive male model Texeira. But the clothes are pretty fab too!

It is a rainforest-themed photo shoot which is shot by Mert and Marcus who are two of my favourite photographers. They produce quirky and risque shoots and never play it safe and I like that.

Texeira starred with female model Luma Grothe in the shoot. Can’t I go back in time and just be her for that day?! Please. Pretty please. 

It’s a very sexy campaign in which Texeira is photographed in numerous sexy poses including one where he is displaying his very fine, sexually teasing bottom! 🙂 But it’s art darlings, it’s art! 🙂

The clothes are beautiful too though as always from this label and I can see that when that absolute babe Marlon Texeira is not been all distracting! 🙂

Of course I looked him up after seeing the shoot (I know that sounds all wrong but you know what I mean! :-)) on Google. Here is a brief synopsis of who he is but make sure to look him up (On Google I mean. What did you all think I meant? :-)), you won’t regret it. 

Brief Synopsis of Marlon Texeira:

He was born on the 16th of September 1991 (Oh I know it’s only a year but why am I older than everyone lately? I used to be younger than everyone! Sniff! :-() and he is Brazilian (Always loved Brazilian men! Oh yes! :-)) but is of Portuguese, Japanese and Amerindian descent (Even better!) and is from Santa Catarina. As well as DSQUARED he has walked for many top fashion labels including Dolce & Gabban, Dior Homme and  Emporio Armani. He also walked for Chanel when he appeared on Karl Lagerfeld’s runway at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014 as the only man with 89 women. He is a skater and also likes surfing, learning new things, traveling, going to the beach, watching movies and drinking kiwi juice in his spare time. 

You can see more news about him on his Facebook and Twitter pages below:

Emilia Wickstead’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection for Ready-to-Wear

Absolutely Fabulous!

Emilia Wickstead’s Spring/Spring collection is amazing! Her signature rectangular box bags on long straps are a feature thankfully because I love that signature. She is incredible at creating silhouettes that completely make any woman feel strong and feminine at the one time.

It is also a very girly collection with a beautiful colour palette. I love the flowing dresses which are a real standout. They are just to die for!

Well done Emilia as always! Stunning collection!
