#FridayFavourites: Pretty in Paisley Prints

Paisley prints are such a gorgeous trend for the summer whether you’re chilling on the poolside or dancing the nights away at a festival. The pretty print will bring some girlie-girl vibes to a bohemian look with its meshed floral patterns. Bold colours against the Persian-inspired trend creates the perfect statement summer ensemble.

Cannes Red Carpet Style Crush

How amazing have all the celebrities been looking on the red carpet for the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival this year?! I sooo wish I was lucky enough to be in their glamorous shoes.

The major event has showcased some of the most gorgeous red carpet looks I’ve seen, who even knew such shimmering statement gowns existed? From feathered trains and sequined bodices to rocking the gladiator chic look, France saw stars flaunt these trends flawlessly.

The opening night of Cannes 2015 was a glamorous parade of gorgeous gowns, sparkling diamonds and flawless makeup.

Here are some of my favourite looks:

Inspired by the celebs’ looks, here’s how you can copy their red carpet look without forking out the triple figure price tag:

red carpet dresses

Sienna Miller totally rocked the classic one shoulder maxi on the red carpet, and you too can look just as sophisticated with this AX Paris Navy dress at £35.

Plunge necklines are fab for bringing a sexy touch to an elegant outfit. And didn’t Miranda Kerr pull it off to perfection in her gorgeous girlie ensemble! Showing off her supermodel bod, in a flowing pink dress, the revealing neckline and thigh slit created the perfect red carpet statement look. Copy the feminine look and look like a goddess with this ASOS Plunge Neck Maxi at £32

Emma Stone looked so cute in the dainty Oscar de la Renta number, decorated with the stunning sheer lace fabric. You too can look just as feminine yet edgy in this flouncy Scalloped Lace Prom dress at Nelly.com for £27.95

Natalie Portman looked SO elegant in her sweetheart bodice red dress! However the post-boox red gown was almost blending in with the carpet. I have found a gorgeous replica in black, this Sweetheart Sheer Fishtail Maxi Dress for £48 in Topshop

Lots of never-ending pins were on display at the prestigious festival, with Miranda Kerr and Karlie Kloss donning the thigh split look. But Karlie Kloss really made a statement wearing a cross between and jumpsuit and dress- and didn’t she look amazing! Her asymetric look took her from supermodel to Gladiator Chic. Copy the trend and stay classic in white with this stunning PU cut out dress by Miss Selfridge at just £25. It might not be floor-length but what a bargain!

The famous faces definitely proved the saying was true: ‘Diamonds are a girls best friend’ with sparkles and shimmer all over their accessories. I totally agree, you can never have to much sparkle and in the form of diamonds? Always more more more!

To accessorise your take on the red carpet look- pair your dress with metallic gem strappy heels (£36.46 at whitehouseblackmarket.com), a classic diamond bracelet (£42.99 at jewelstreet.com) and a statement sparkly clutch (£29.68 at etsy.com).

So if you’ve got any formal events coming up, I hope I have given you some inspiration for finding your perfect celeb-inspired look without having to break the budget!

Coachella has officially kicked off the summer festival season… I wouldn’t have known… It’s not like my instagram feed has been totally bombarded with amazing pictures from the star-studded event or anything!! But i’m not gonna lie I have been glued to my phone these recent weeks stalking the Fashion Glitterati who have dug out their kimonos and denim hot pants.

The photos and the gossip has just made me so envious of everyone at the festival and SO excited for the upcoming festivals this year. For the past three years i’ve been a loyal Bestival goer and will definitely be there again next year, but this summer I’ve got tickets for V Festival and WOMAD and I am buzzing.

I know it’s slightly early but all this Coachella hype has got me in the mood to start planning some looks and my inspiration has come from my celeb style crushes who have totally been rocking their inner bohemian style.

The GORGEOUS Grammys

The Grammys looked a very glamorous one this year- everyone looked phenom!

Watching YouTube clips and writing reports on the Grammy Awards made me wish I was there just to see all the beautiful dresses and hair and make-up in person.

From glittering gowns to Pharell’s famous hat many celebrities shone on the red carpet but a top five caught my eye:

5. Miranda Lambert

Miranda didn’t even look close to reaching her fiftees in this gorgeous red floor-length Pamella Roland gown.

4. Rita Ora

Image

I was particularly loving Rita’s curly hair-do. Her lush ankle-strapped heels were a great pair with her metallic dress.

3. Nicole Trunfio

Image

Didn’t she look fab in that Nicholas Oakwell floor-length dress?! I could only dream about pulling that dress of as well as she has.

2. Taylor Swift

Image

I absolutely adored Taylor’s Gucci dress. She looked so classy- her figure looked fab and you can never ever go wrong with a bit of sparkle on the red carpet.

1. Beyonce

Image   Image

The sheer white Michael Costello gown could not have looked as amazing on anyone else other than Queen Bey. Who would have thought this sexy lady was once pregnant!

The steamy opening performance of Drunk On Love with hubby Jay-Z was hard not to have on repeat for a day- she just looked incred!

Pixie Lott’s christmas treat for us

Wouldn’t we all like to be Pixie Lott? She can sing, she can dance, she’s gorgeous, she has every girl’s dream wardrobe, OH and she is currently in the beautiful Maldives with her dreamy ab-perfect model boyfriend, Oliver Cheshire.

Ah well at least we can feel christmasy, wrapping up the presents while listening to Pixie Lott’s festive sing-song of White Christmas.

I’m loving her jazzy Christmas jumper too. The ‘Nice Baubles’ cosey sweater is only £12 from Primark!
