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

The Muse ~ Faye Dunaway

Faye Dunaway has starred in some seriously stylish movies, The Thomas Crown Affair, Network and Chinatown to name a few, but its Arthur Penn’s iconic Bonnie and Clyde (arguably the most stylish film of all time) that she is most identified with. And little wonder; it simply never goes out of style. Set in the dusty mid-west during the grim 1930’s, costume designer Theadora Van Runkle’s killer ensembles (quite literally) remain current

Never Underestimate The Power Of Red Lipstick

For an instant pick-me-up, wear red lipstick. Preferably pillar box red lipstick but if that’s a little too intense, try something with a raspberry or vin rouge tint instead. It looks good on everyone and will never go out of style. Always keep one red lippy in your purse – you never know when you might need it!     If we had to choose one red lipstick, for eternity, then you

“… this is known as Fashion Week.”

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week.”Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) Fashion Month is well and truly underway and NYFW was only the beginning. As LFW shapes up nicely, let’s hark back to the city that’s so good they named it twice. The eagerly anticipated New York Fashion Week has wrapped up and set the
