Just as much about the dresses as it is the winners, Sunday night played host to the biggest night in Hollywood; the Oscars. True to form, it was a display of stunning style and breath-taking beauty, with stars of the big screen pulling out all the stops to impress on the red carpet. While the Academy was clearly most impressed with Gravity and 12 Years a Slave, we take a look at the outfits that won our coveted seal of approval!
After wowing the fash pack at the BAFTAs, rising star Lupita Nyong’o continued her winning style streak with a stunning sky blue gown by Prada. Worn with a plunging neckline and subtle gold accessories, the 12 Years a Slave actress cemented her place as one to watch not only for her acting talents (she walked away with the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role) but also for her fantastic eye for fashion.

On Wednesday, we shone the Simply Be style spotlight on the brightest stars from the music industry at the 37th annual Brit Awards. With a red carpet well-trodden by some of the biggest and best music acts to have ever existed, it is a night famed for fashion, fantastic performances and a fair share of celebrity scandal (we’re looking at you Messrs Cocker, Block and Brand!).
While it’s safe to say that last night’s show was a decidedly better behaved affair than previous years, the stars did not disappoint in the style stakes. We take a look at some of our favourite looks from the Brits 2014.
Alongside big sis Kylie, Dannii hit the red carpet in a figure-hugging black dress that just pipped her siblings outfit the post to make it onto our list.
While Kylie opted for a tight PVC number adorned with two big bows, the ex-X Factor host opted for a demure frock with glitzy borders and a sexy lace insert that travelled all the way up her thigh. Continue reading →
The most glamorous night in British cinema, the annual BAFTA awards took place on Sunday at a rather chilly Royal Opera House in central London. In true award ceremony style, the acting elite descended on the capital in their Sunday best and lit up the red carpet with their gorgeous gowns and slick suits. From a shimmering Fearne to an androgynous Ange, we round up the hottest looks from the night…
On presenting duties, Fearne showcased her trademark rock chick-meets-vintage-glam style with this glitzy gold gown. Beautifully adorned with sparkling details, seductive smoky eyes and worn with a retro wavy bob, Fearne’s gorgeous look had a touch of old school Hollywood glamour. Continue reading →
Last night the 71st Golden Globe awards took place at Beverly Hills, California, and true to style the actresses turned up in all their finery, so let’s take a look show you our favourite picks from the bunch and run down the list of celebrities who took centre stage in the fashion stakes!
Starring alongside Michael Douglas in the 1992 erotic thriller, Sharon Stone plays Basic Instinct’s devil in a white dress (and no knickers) flawlessly. With an icy blonde bob, figure-hugging dress, killer heels and a cut-throat stare, she has to be the most fashionable femme fatale ever to grace our screens.
Throughout the movie, Catherine Tramell (Stone’s character) is dressed in the pale, neutral hues of white and beige. This is a smart move by costume designer, Ellen Mirojnick, who avoids the cliché of dark vampy dresses for the brash and highly charged Catherine and, instead, further fuels the whodunit mystery by dressing our suspect in light, innocent tones. Some might argue that these blanched shades do nothing to fight for Tramell’s innocence; on her, they appear cold, contemporary and sexed up…much like Stone’s portrayal of the saucy siren.

There’s a bit of a celebrity baby boom brewing at the moment, with everyone from Kelly Clarkson to Kate Winslet expecting the pitter patter of tiny designer booties. While these lucky ducks have stylists on hand to see them through those sartorially-tricky months, we mere mortals must muddle through on our own…and dressing for two can leave some in a bit of a sticky style spot.
Never fear, mums-to-be; a little muffin in the oven needn’t mean nine months of wardrobe misery! We’ve looked to the stars for some style inspiration and created six gorgeous looks straight from our very own maternity range, available in sizes 14-32.
The (seemingly) perpetually pregnant Jessica Simpson gets maternity style spot on with this animal-print dress and black accessories. What better way to show of your baby-mamma curves than with an all-over eye-catching pattern?
All day we’ve been admiring the stars on the red carpet, with so many stunning gowns it was hard to pick our favourites. We absolutely adore Adele, she looked gorgeous in her embellished black gown with sequins and three quarter length sleeves. It was also great to see her win the award for best original song for Skyfall!
