Making the Case: The Bootcut Jean

All hail the return of the bootcut jean. They’ve made a comeback even Mariah Carey would be proud of. And they’re way more flattering than the skinny jean. Trust us. Totally retro and a sure fire way of slimming those thighs without having to ditch the donut. Hallelujah! This time the look is stronger than ever.ūüí™A little bit hippy, a little bit boho, with a touch of Western influence (think

Oscars 2017: The Best Dressed

Alas, awards season has finally come to an end and what an ending it was (envelope guy, you had one job, one job!), but before we roll away the red carpet for another year, let’s have a look at last night’s leading ladies as they took to the red carpet at the¬†Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for the 89th Academy Awards, otherwise known as the Oscars. It wouldn’t be a best-dressed

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?

“Im-pecc-able – glitter, silver, something very shiny.” – Karl Lagerfeld A magpie’s dream, the Chanel Couture Show, a collection inspired by Alberto Giacometti’s 1920’s “femme culli√®re”,¬†took place at the Grand Palais against a backdrop of fragmented mirrors. As the models shimmered across the mirrored runway in elegantly tailored Jackie Kennedy-esque one colour¬†suits (complete with matching hats), the colour palette was reminiscent of Ladur√©e¬†macarons. Each model wore a slim, single pearl

Happy Birthday, Kate Moss!

There’s only one Kate in our lives and sorry, it’s not Kate Middleton. The ultimate icon of British style, Kate Moss needs no introduction. From a fresh-faced schoolgirl to fully-fledged fashion icon, Kate has come a long way. So to celebrate Mossy‚Äôs 43rd birthday today, we’re simply posting some our very favorite looks (mostly from the ’90’s because, well, they’re iconic). Happy birthday, Kate! For better or worse, ‘heroin chic’

Golden Globe Awards 2017: The Best Red Carpet Style

In the words of Maeve, “fashion police, assemble!” Ah yes, it’s that time of the year again, just when we’re down in the dumps, deep in post-holiday January blues and with resolutions failing fast, we can finally pass judgement on those privileged enough to walk the red carpet. No shame here folks, we will ‘ooh’, ‘aah’ and ‘nah’ all we want. While the Golden Globe Awards are considered by many

‘Tis the season of soir√©es, sequins, and Strictly

It’s party prep time and if you want to sparkle like that glitter ball trophy (we really, really love Strictly), then it’s time for some¬†sequins. Be careful not to go overboard, quick step away from too many accessories and soften the look with some cashmere knits or, even better, a touch of faux fur. This French Connection number is ideal for lazy lounging over the holidays. If sparkly isn’t your

Caped Crusader

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly might just spring to mind when you throw on a poncho (if Margaret has anything to do with it!) but push past the Man with No Name aka Clint and picture Alexa, or Cara, or SJP. I mean, isn’t that enough fashion credentials right there? By the way, is it a cape or a poncho? You see, a cape is sort of like

Snug Life: Stay Warm, Look Cool

Three winters ago, I succumbed to the puffer jacket. I had dug my heels in long enough, but you know when you’re ankle deep in snow, you really have no other alternative. Except maybe hypothermia. The puffer screamed “giving up” to me. It was ‘mumsie’, a bit of a fashion no-no really. Oh, how wrong I was. It’s like being wrapped in a great big duvet. Statement coats are well

Hillary Clinton Suits Up

Okay, so we tend to steer away from politics, let’s leave that to the professionals. Wait, who are they again? It would seem professionalism has eluded our ‘leaders’ lately, but it’s too early in the morning for that. Instead, let’s focus our attention on something much more important: Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits. Ralph Lauren’s¬†Patriotic Pantsuit Trilogy has served Hillary well. This choice in particular has been¬†widely¬†regarded¬†as a tribute to the suffragette

It’s Just A Bunch Of Hocus Pocus

Prepare yourself for an onslaught of Harley Quinn’s this Halloween. To be fair, it’s a pretty cool costume. I cannot go as Mia Wallace. Again. By far the most comfortable costume¬†ever, that wig has been used too many times (Cleopatra, Am√©lie, Coco Chanel…it was money well spent) and I no longer have a partner in crime, nothing to worry about, just my Vincent Vega has cut his hair. I’ve had
