Outfit of the Day

I was on the look out for a party outfit for the bank holiday weekend but only had an hour to dash into a few stores after work. 

My first stop was Zara where I spotted a gorgeous off-white chiffon blouse which I teamed with a bold blue mini skirt to add a little pop of colour to my outfit - voila! Outfit sorted in under an hour! ;-)

Billboard Awards 2011 Fashion

The music stars were out tonight in full force at the Billboard Awards 2011 held in Las Vegas.

Fergie, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Mary J Blige and more made an appearance on the white carpet. It was obvious that the theme of the night was Gaga themed gothic inspired outfits with a lot of black and sparkle on show. Best outfits? Designer Max Azria was a celeb favourite as his designs were spotted on both Fergie and Rihanna, my favourite outfits! 


Fergie's Max Azria bondage dress(HOT!) and Christian Louboutin heels (to die for). Also loved Rihanna's choice of outfit - she opted for a sleek Max Azria suit and tan Christian Louboutin heels.


The worst?  Taylor Swift's gold Elie Saab gown looked far too old for her years, and much suited to a mature woman, while Mary J Blige chose an animal-print Marc Bauer gown which drowned her. Both outfits looked awful. Better luck next time ladies!

 Taylor Swift

 Mary J Blige 

Nicki Minaj - wore an "interesting" Mark Fast bodysuit and Versace heels 

Ke$ha - wore a silver Jad Ghanour cut out dress which I loved! She usually looks a hot mess so thumbs up to Ke$ looks great too!

Beyonce wore a classic LBD by Lanvin and then transformed into a bondage themed stage out for her amazing performance at the awards show later!

Kelly Rowland wore a cute Herve Leger dress

Michelle Williams went for a cute black sparkly number - loved her clutch!

 Kylie Minogue chose my favourite Alexander McQueen amazing shoes and the dress is fab too!

 Selena Gomez in D&G dress, not sure if it's the dress itself or the way it sits on Selena but something not quite right with this dress...bow kitten heels are too cute!

Is the Blackberry Dead? BB is Dead (BB is Dead lyrics)

GT Solo's new video, "BB is dead"for song lyrics scroll down...

Is the Blackberry dead? According to UK rapper, GT Solo, the Blackberry RIM has had its day and is losing its battle to iphone and android with the youth market.

In the song, titled, “BB is Dead”, GT Solo outlines his reasons why he believes young people are avoiding the smartphone and opting for other phones such as the iphone and android instead.

In the humorous track, GT Solo lists the Blackberry faults whilst highlighting the benefits of RIM’s competitors, iphone and android.

He comments on the Blackberry’s slow internet browser, low-par camera, GPS inaccuracy, limited app selection and BBM chat’s lack of ability to disable broadcast messages.

The video shows GT Solo poking fun at the Blackberry, burning model dummies of the device and deeming the smartphone as “dead”.

According to GT Solo, the Blackberry has had its day and doesn’t hold the credibility with young people enjoyed by the iphone and android devices.  He says:-

“I was a big fan of Blackberry in the past but nowadays me, my friends and followers on Twitter have moved away to more app lead smartphones like iphone and androids.”

 “The Blackberry is good as a business phone but young people like me need a phone with more to offer.  Blackberry is falling behind with slow internet speed and poor selection of apps.”

The video, “BB is dead” has over 7,000 hits in three days and has received coverage on many blogs, forums and websites.

Heated debates on Youtube and internet phone forums have demonstrated the fierce brand loyalty consumers hold but can this be maintained with today’s fickle consumer?

So who is GT Solo? 
Emerging from UK’s thriving urban music scene, GT Solo, is 23 year old rapper and producer from South London.

Combining hip-hop, grime and old school garage, GT Solo has released 3 mixtapes and embarked on numerous shows and live performances across the UK.

Hand-picked by Godfather of Grime, Wiley as the “next rising star”, GT Solo recently opened Wiley’s UK Elusive tour in April 2011.

In 2008 GT Solo released his debut mixtape ‘Tape Pack’, followed by “Perfect Blend” mixtape released in 2009 and “Grinding Sessions” released in February 2011.

Dumb symbols……

Beyonce Run the World (Girls) Video Fashion & Tofo Tofo!

 Beyonce and the incredible dance troupe, Tofo Tofo!

Beyonce has finally released her new video, "Run the World (Girls)" and it's a certified hit!

The styling for this video is off-the-chain! Alexander McQueen, Chanel and Balmain and Lanvin designs all make an appearance.  The concept of the video is set on a desert landscape ruled by two forces Beyonce, the warrior chief, and her supermodel minions against  the opposing army (of men!)

Beyonce's Run the World Alexander McQueen dress
I love the Alexander McQueen red dress she wears, surrounded by her minions dancers. Beyonce looks incredible!

But it's the choreography that really stands out. The dancing is reflection of several genres of dance from jazz, street, hiphop and most prominently African dance movements. Beyonce's choreographer, Frank Gatson Jr, said:

"We prepared a lot for it. We had seen something on YouTube; we had seen these three guys from Africa, this Mozambique African dance troupe ... we were like, 'Wow, this is an amazing movement. And that movement has always been in the back of our head for the last year."

Dance troupe Tofo Tofo who featured in Beyonce's Run the World Video

I'm so relieved to hear that I'm not the only person who trails through Youtube videos watching amazing dancers from around the world - Beyonce does too and it seems she's a big fan herself!!

She picked the African dance troupe, Tofo Tofo, although she had a hard time enlisting them as it took months to track them down due to them living in remote areas in their home country of Mozambique.  Beyonce was so adament to find the dancers she enlisted the Embassy to help her find them! 

Frank Gatson Jr said, "I feel like we really nailed it and, again, my hats off to the Tofo Tofo guys [from Africa], ’cause none of us could imitate that. We had to bring them around to learn that [move], which is really, really interesting."
I hear Erickson Beamon, the designer, custom made the crown for this video shoot. I love the design of the crown, more tribal influences than bling, which works perfectly for the concept of the video. 

 Beyonce with her crown..

But my favourite look of the video has to be when Beyonce steps out in the Gareth Pugh 10 inch heels? Lady Gaga was sporting similar style heels in her Bad Romance video, but it's Beyonce that rocks the heels like no other. Fierce!

Outfit of the day - Youtube video

Another youtube video has been uploaded! Check out one of my favourite spring looks perfect for both day and night looks. 

I love the cropped denim jacket and the tan dress  from H&M especially the zip detail to the pockets which adds edge to the dress. What do you think of the tan wooden wedge heels? Too high..or not high enough?!

I am totally in love with my handbag and dress - both purchases from New Look. I instantly loved the leopard print collar on the black dress, and thought that the beige bag was the  perfect shade for Spring.

Big Hair is Back! (ask Cheryl Cole, SJP and Chantel Biya!)

 Cheryl Cole rocking big hair yesterday...

 ..And now today Sarah Jessica Parker has huge hair 'do too! 

It's official, big hair is back! Just ask Cheryl Cole, who was seen sporting the bouffant hair do yesterday on first day as judge for American X-Factor.

Today, Sarah Jessica Parker rocked the huge 60's bouffant for the Robin Hood Foundation gala in New York City and a few weeks ago Rihanna dumped the short do and went for a huge red afro instead.

So what is the sudden craze with the big hair?!

Only one person springs to mind.  Forever in the media spotlight, come rain or shine, the permanent bouffant  reigns supreme. It is none other than Cameroon's first lady, Chantel Biya.

Wife of Cameroon President, Paul Biya, Chantel's  style has caused much debate amongst fashion critics, with her sensentional outfits and of course, the hair.

Whether it's blonde or red, Chantel's hair is always big.  So move over Rihanna, Cheryl and Sarah JP because Chantel Biya was rocking the buffant do way before you all and looks like she will continue the big hair long after the trend ends!

So will you be rocking the bouffant hair? Is big hair making a comeback or is the bouffant just a big fat no no? Thoughts!

Kate Middleton Wears Highstreet!

 Kate shopping on Kings Road for high street clothes!

As everyone knows, I am the biggest champion of high street fashion and there is nothing I love more than to see celebrities proudly showing off their high street bargains. But what about royalty wearing high street? Have you ever seen royalty dressed in high street clothing? Does one even consider high street clothing when one can choose whatever outfit they desire?! 

Well the answer is YES as none other than the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in a Zara outfit for her first public appearance after royal wedding!  Kate chose the £49.99 Zara cornflower blue dress, £129.99 black LK Bennett patent pumps and a simple black jacket. Pretty, cute but yet totally suitable for the occasion, the perfect combination that many often get sooooooooooo wrong.

 Kate's first public appearance and she wears Zara! Go Kate!

Her sister, Pippa also opted for high street attire and wore a classic Zara royal blue double breasted blazer costing on £69.99, white jeans, a Bristol bag £149 from Modalu and cream leather Riva balled pumps from Tory Burch priced at £120.

 Kate's sister Pippa chooses Zara too!

I love the fact that Kate and her sister Pippa  haven't shunned the high street... yet!  Days before her wedding, Kate went shopping on the popular, Kings Road, and picked up summer dresses at another of my favourite stores Warehouse

 The summer dresses Kate bought from Warehouse

Shopping at high street stores just like any other young woman!  More proof to the reports that Kate really is just as down to earth as she appears.

I hope to see Kate championing more high street outfits because as we all know, the high street rules! Perhaps she can encourage people who turn their noses at the high street and label obsessed fashion victims to try high street fashion too. If high street fashion is good enough for Princess Kate, then they are certainly good enough for me!
