Fashion Spotlight: Sophie Webster

Sophie Webster 1
If you’re looking for some whimsical and fantasy worthy accessories, let me introduce you to Sophia Webster. One word that describes her collection of party-ready shoes and handbags: FUN.  The kind of fun that makes all your other shoes seem boring in comparison.  The kind of shoes that make you ask yourself, “Where have you been all my life?”.   Why wouldn’t you want to throw on a pair of sunset printed sandals or circle stacked heels?
The best part is that each shoe and accessory makes a statement.  Whether it’s an ankle strap, sequin-sprayed sandal with a patent leather bow, or neon-splashed PVC slingbacks, one thing is for sure – these are not for those that take life too seriously.

You wanna know what I’m loving?

I’ve been loving the Dior’s Runway looks on the models! It’s very minimal, but very glammed up! The eye make up has a slight crease-cut, and a winged eyeliner, along with a clean finished eyebrows!

Makeup artist Pat McGrath adorned models’ lips with red gemstones for a look that was very reminiscent of ruby red slippers. This sparkling take on lipstick might look complicated, but in terms of a DIY, it’s easier to test out at home than the newest nail art trend.

To get this look, you’ll want to adhere tiny gemstones overtop of a tinted lip. Traditional lipstick will be too slippery—instead go for something without a sticky texture or added shine, like a lip stain.  Let the lip tint dry for a few minutes before you start adding the sparkle. Now the fun part: use eyelash adhesive, and start to stick the gemstones to your lips. You will need two sizes of gemstones, the slightly smaller size for the outline and bigger to fill in your lips. Add the gems to the outline of your lips first and then fill them in. Also note that the lips at Dior have an almost exaggerated bow, so if the gemstones sit slightly outside your natural lip line, that’s okay.

The key to making the Dior gemstone lip last is all in the timing: this look is ideal for a night out where no eating is involved—and preferably one where any drinking can be done through a straw. Think you’ll try this at home? Share pictures if you do!

Glam Spotlight; Gossip Girl Fashion

As you may all know, I am entirely obsessed with the TV show ‘Gossip Girl’. It was my favourite, is my favourite, will always be my favourite. Apart from the drama, I love the styling of characters, mostly in events. So, I’ve gathered pictures of my favourite dresses/outfits of the entire series!

Image

So, this is a dress by Peter Pilotto, Fall 2012. I love the embellishment of the dress and the neck detailing. I honestly, fell in love with it before the episode was even aired!

Image

This dress was worn by Blair, in the season where they had to go to Paris. It’s a Red Valentino pink animal print chiffon dress. However, may I also include that, I did not like the Pink+Red combo choice, but the dress is so Old Hollywood glam.

Image

Most of you probably haven’t seen this dress yet, you wanna know why? This episode hasn’t aired yet! Hahaha. Anyways, it’s an embellished powder blue Elie Saab Couture dress.

Image

This dress looks waaay better than the actually picture! This is a Jenny Packham Spring 2012. It was on the first episode of Season 6 (I think).

Image

This outfit really caught my attention. I loved the colours, loved the detailing of it. The gold Emilio Pucci Spring 2010 cropped blazer is AH-MAZINNG! Don’t you agree? How ever, the hairstyle? nu-uh.

Image

 This is Diane Von Frustenburj‘s Clarice dress. I love it to pieces, and Serena (Blake Lively) looks sexy in it!

Image

This is WOW. Serena (Blake Lively) looks incredibly stunning! The lace detailing is incredibly elegant.  It is a no-brainer that this dress is designed by Zuhair Murad for the Ready-to-Wear Fall-winter 2010-2011.

Image

This dress is by Oscar De La Rent for the pre-fall 2012 collection. As always, Oscar de la rent never fails to amaze us. However, the heels? ummm. no.

Image

LOVE this one. I’ve always had a thing for Marchesa’s dresses. Always different, and never the less, elegant. This is by Marchesa for spring 2009.

Hope you enjoyed this little fun post, and do tell me what are your favourite outfits/dresses on gossip girl!
