From her innocent Highschool Musical days to a recent rebellious role in the explicit Spring Breakers, this actress has evolved in more ways than one.
She started out donning pretty preppy outfits in her early acting days but soon developed her own boho signature style. Vanessa is famed for her wavy locks, laid back effortless chic and festival wear. If there is any celebrity who knows how to dress for a summer festival it’s her.
Similar to a real life Pocahontas, the dark featured beauty has this advantage when it comes to styling herself. There are many elements to Hudgen’s everyday look ranging from white flowing pieces to ripped denim, tie-dye skirts to print crops.
She is a walking advertisement for the maxi dress, using the lengthy garment to give her the appearance of height. A brightly coloured and bold printed maxi teamed with flat sandals is a classic everyday look for the actress.
Accessorizing is key to this star’s wardrobe. Chained headbands, classy fedora’s and an array of necklaces and bracelets all at once complete this boho chic look she is much loved for.
She was the chic villain on The City, a spin off show of hit reality show The Hills, showcasing the fashion world in New York City. A socialite turned style icon for many Olivia has climbed the ranks in terms of style since her TV debut.
Olivia embraces her long legs and opts for skinny jeans, fitted leather pants or structured shorts which show off her assets. Her outfits often incorporate layers including short sleek jackets and a blouse or long coats and plenty of accessories. Sophisticated is her personal style in one word. She appears to never have a hair out of place, reflecting her wealthy background she is the oozes class.
Of course her olive skin and sandy hair tend to aid any outfit’s appeal but regardless of your colouring you can still use her as an inspiration when dressing. Patterned fitted pants are another item Olivia has in her wardrobe which add colour and drama to a plain black blazer and blouse.
Although her style is mostly structured and of the fitted sort she does occasionally sport a chiffon mini skirt to add a flirty and feminine element to a look. A good bag is an essential for this socialite and it is rarely a small one. A girl after my own heart she can always be seen carrying her life around in a large but classy leather handbag.
Shimmering gold and sheer panel detailing embellished the red carpet at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards Ceremony in Beverly Hills. Celebrities such as Taylor Swift made quite an impact sparkling in gold while Beyoncé showcased the SS14 sheer trend.
Red Carpet Worthy
Combining two Spring trends: sheer and floral
Showstopper in Gold
Rich silk; Daring cut
Opening the show performing with husband Jay Z, Beyoncé stole the show in more ways than one. Her figure flattering floral dress was designed by Michael Costello putting her high up on the list for best dressed. Embroidered lace and sheer detailing created a feminine but flirty look. Wavy locks and a strong red lip take this outfit to award ceremony standards.
A low ponytail with a sweeping side fringe added simplicity to Taylor Swift’s gold Gucci gown. With sheer shoulders and neckline this frock sparkled from top to bottom while hugging the singer’s slim frame. Expensive with an air of class is how to describe Taylor on music’s biggest night.
Rihanna as expected chose a quirky version of the typical awards ceremony gown. The collared plunging silk dress looked rich in colour and texture. The mustard yellow complimented her complexion while her long tresses were brushed off her face.
Both Iggy Azalea and Anna Kendrick donned beautiful embroidered gowns. Iggy slicked her blonde locks back and let her white floor length dress take center stage. Anna chose glossy curls to add to her revealing yet stunning Azzurro dress.
Christine Teigen, married to John Legend, looked stunning in yet another sequined gold number. Strapless, fitted and featuring a shimmering train the model’s fashion choice was perfect for the occasion.
Block colours, sheer detailing, textured pieces-the red carpet of the 71st Annual Golden Globes Awards saw Hollywood’s finest echo major Spring/Summer 14 trends. The stylish and hilarious duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, hosted the awards for a second time at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last night. The wide range of designs chosen by guests created an air of elegance with a slight edge.
Amy Adams was just one actress sporting the block colour trend with a low-cut halter dress in two tones of red by Valentino. The deserving winner of Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for American Hustle wore her strawberry blonde locks up in a classy bun. A long dainty silver chain mirrored her dresses v-shaped neckline.
The Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot Robbie added edge and a sultry element to the red carpet in a white Gucci dress. A thigh-high slit along with jeweled detailing made blonde beauty stand out from the rest.
Jennifer Lawrence received mixed reviews regarding her Dior haute couture frock. The prom dress style design was either loved or hated, either way the actress was pleased following her win for her comedic supporting role in American Hustle.
Vibrant colour blocking and sheer detailing in the dress worn by Maria Menounos combined two SS14 trends. Slicked back hair and simple accessories complimented the bright pink number by Max Azria Atelier.
Prabal Gurung had more than one design grace the coveted red carpet with Sandra Bullock’s dramatic yet creative colour block dress being one. The actress looked youthful and confident with a side ponytail and worthy nomination.
The cast of Girls certainly made a fashionable impression with nominee Lena Dunham wearing Zac Posen in daring yellow. Allison Williams followed suit in Alexander McQueen spring/summer which featured the texture trend.
A supermodel of the moment. Stunning, youthful and stylish. No I’m not talking about Cara Delevigne. I’m talking about her fellow successful supermodel, Jourdan Dunn.
Quite a fuss has been made about Cara Delevigne for some time now. “She’s the next Kate Moss” they say, if not bigger. She very well could be and she is a beautiful girl but my loyalty lies with her good friend Jourdan. Discovered in Primark in 2006 the British model was then signed to Storm Model Managment. Being the first black woman to walk Prada’s catwalks in over 10 years she certainly made her presence known from the beginning in the fashion industry.
In demand almost as such as Delevigne herself Jourdan has developed a striking image when it comes to her outfits and has the confidence to go with them. Beanies and caps are a favourite of hers along with loose fitting varsity inspired tops. When attending an event however she incorporates girly, flirty elements with a catwalk edge. Bright metallic bodycon pieces can be seen on her Instagram as a choice for what I’m sure is a ‘high profile’ night out.
Fitted leather pants and biker style leather jackets are pieces she mixes with loose jersey whether it is day or night. For the star studded CFDA Awards this year she sported an alternative type of evening wear , boosting her eternally effortless image. A black bandeau crop teamed with high waisted structured bottoms Dunn showed she is both brave and beautiful.
This all may sound a bit daunting. Maybe she has a slight advantage when wearing such clingy and ‘out there’ clothing but it isn’t hard to be inspired by her style and change it to suit your figure. Chic and cool Dunn dresses like a supermodel even when off duty and is not afraid of a little comfort. It’s not just us so.
