Best Oscar Dresses Of All Time

Controversy be damned! The Oscars is undoubtedly one of the most glamorous events in history and as we gear up for this weekend’s 88th Academy Awards ceremony, let’s cast our minds back to those jaw dropping Oscar dresses of yore.

Introducing: Free People

“…to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free Silhouetted by the sea…” Born in the 70’s, gypsy spirit loving label Free People is for those bon vivants who live free through fashion, art, music, travel and everything in between. Picture free-flowing dresses, soft jersey t-shirts and delicate lace, bohemian chic but less noughties Sienna Miller and more seventies Stevie Nicks. FP is the perfect choice for those adventurers, and anyone

And The Insta-Grammy Goes To…

New year, new you! Well, it’s now the 13th January so that’s probably not the case anymore as your new year’s resolution fades to the back of your mind… But you know what might give you that extra boost to change up the diet, wardrobe and boost that morale? Instagram. Well, it might not boost the morale but it sure is a good way to stay in the know and here’s how

The Not So Golden Era

Ah, jeez. Here we go again being remarkably hard to please. Sigh. While many an A-lister, and Heidi Klum, strut their stuff at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards,  only a few good women stood out against a fairly mediocre red carpet. Not for lack of trying mind you. It’s just all a little… “Meh”. Maybe it’s because it’s January. Let’s face it; nothing looks good in January except Leonardo DiCaprio’s face.

All Rise

Now that fall is in full swing (not that summer made much of an appearance), we are fully prepared to embrace the Knit List and in particular, take a deep breath, the Polo Neck. Margaret is not a fan. I believe she used the word “torturous”. Yikes. Let’s see if this can change her mind. You see, the Polo Neck is one of those humble pieces that never gets much

How To: Wear The Breton Stripe

My love affair with France knows no bounds. What’s not to love? Exceptionally good wine, cheese, coffee (my main food groups) and of course, la mode. Après tout, everyone wants to do Parisian chic. Buy a book, there’s plenty to choose from and you too can achieve that ‘je ne sais quoi’ that’s so typically français. Or you could just wear a Breton top (and no, not with a beret –

The Oscars 2015 Red Carpet Style

Matthew McConaughey skipped the red carpet. Maybe he knew something we didn’t. A little like the awards ceremony itself (yes, we were there *cough*) Sunday’s red carpet style was a little… beige. Recently, the red carpet has come under quite a bit of scrutiny. Questions are being bandied about as to whether or not it’s fair to objectify these Hollywood stars (notably the female celebrities) as they walk the red carpet

The Muse ~ Ava Gardner

“When I’m old and grey, I want to have a house by the sea. And paint. With a lot of wonderful chums, good music, and booze around. And a damn good kitchen to cook in.” – Ava Gardner Proof that with a red lip and bold brow, you can do no wrong. Ah, the good old days of Hollywood, when studios ruled the world and Amal’s gloves wouldn’t have looked out

The Golden Girls

Is it just us or are we expecting too much? I mean, if we looked like any of those ladies on the red carpet we would be happy but as far as the fashion stakes go… this year’s Globes‬ were a little ‘meh’. And we’re not talking about J Lo’s! Ahem, Mr. Renner! Sure, the Golden Globe Awards are about the acting chops and yeah okay, they’re saving themselves for the
