Kate Hudson Loves…Sophie Hulme ‘Box Tote & Alexander McQueen Khaki Skull Tattoo Scarf

Kate Hudson Loves Sophie Hulme 'Box Tote & Alexander McQueen Khaki Skull Tattoo Scarf

Kate Hudson’s constant companion of late has been her Sophie Hulme ‘Box’ tote adorned with an Alexander McQueen khaki skull tattoo scarf. The square black bag with gold hardware conveys a sense of sharply structured sophistication with the scarf adding a flutter of tough-girly edge—no matter the ensemble.

Look 1: While out and about in Los Angeles, California last week, the actress wore an adorable—and super-short—Lovers + Friends ‘Gardenia’ blue romper with flip-flops for a casual, sunny off-duty look. The polished Sophie Hulme bag may seem an unusual, out-of-the-box pairing with this hyper-youthful and fun romper, but Kate shows us here that this purse really can be taken anywhere.

Look 2: The actress again oozed with the casual fun of summer in a white Topshop cord zip dress paired with Carvela Kurt Geiger ‘Gerry’ platform sandals while in New York City on Thursday (July 9). Of course, the ‘Box’ was right by her side, which she likewise again wore with the shoulder strap.

Look 3: On her way to the Today show on Friday (July 10) in New York City, she debuted a Christopher Kane emerald lurex top and lamé pleated skirt from the Fall 2015 collection with Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ nude pumps. The ‘Box’ bag was a seamlessly perfect addition to this look, which I loved not only for its rich jewel tones that were made summer-luxe appropriate, but also for the styling—most particularly the quirky round Sunday Somewhere ‘Yetti’ sunglasses that added a final punch of chic attitude.

Celebrities Love…Christian Dior’s ‘So Real’ Sunglasses

Celebrities Love Christian Dior's ‘So Real’ Sunglasses

The latest reality check to hit the celebrity scene is nothing short of a revelation.

Flying in the face of superficiality, Christian Dior’s ‘So Real’ sunglasses have the stars shielding their eyes in style with the shades lending an authentically cool flair to every look under the sun.

Available in a spectrum of colours, the So Reals are characterised by their distinctive, deconstructed pantos shape that seamlessly blends geometric lines and couture spirit while nodding to a quintessential sense of mannish, retro sportiness.

Easily transitioning between mod Cleopatra vamp, to breezily sophisticated statements, and casually classic off-duty style, the sunnies are a go-to obsession for an instantaneous dose of originality.

Rihanna, Zhang Ziyi, Olivia Palermo, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are only a few of the fashionable fans.

Keeping it so real never looked so chic.

Celebrities Love…Gingham

Celebrities Love Gingham
The most effective way to check the box on breezy seasonal style is with the pattern of the summer—gingham. The classic print stormed the Spring 2015 runways last September, with designers fully embracing its sweet and sexy charms.

It has since become a celebrity favourite, with starlets showing the many sides of the grid—and, as it turns out, gingham is not just a one-trick pony.

Vanessa Hudgens embodied the classic, ladylike allure of the black-and-white print in a full-skirted Dolce & Gabbana dress that nodded to a vintage flair.

Likewise, Lizzy Caplan wore a Lela Rose frock that featured the timeless pattern in a feminine silhouette contrasted with an on-trend high-low hemline.

Meanwhile, I loved seeing Amal Clooney step outside of the girly gingham tradition in a Tome sleeveless trench coat with an exploded checquered pattern, which she paired with distressed denim and shoe boots for the ultimate in edgy, elegant allure.

Celebrities Love Gingham 2
Adorably flaunting gingham’s inherent playfulness, Emmy Rossum dressed in a girlish Aqua frock that she sophisticatedly paired with raffia Paul Andrew pumps.

Oozing with an aura of retro refinement, Freida Pinto impressed in a green micro-gingham Michael Kors dress that was a like a breath of fresh air, offering an ultra-chic new lease on life for the pattern.

Anne Hathaway returned to tradition in an all-American, sporty-glam Michael Kors printed skirt and crop top for her recent outing.

Do these many renditions of the almighty gingham have you convinced?

Celebrities Love…Hunter Boots

Celebrities Love Hunter Boots

Glastonbury Music Festival took place this weekend at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England with a heady lineup of musical talent, but the other star of the show went by the name of Hunter—as appearances of Hunter boots were seen at every turn.

The British heritage brand is known for its original, immediately recognizable boot, was a favourite among celebrities. No wonder, as it has proved a sturdy, signature companion to any festival-worthy ensemble, especially amidst the muddy conditions that Glastonbury presented.

Now very much an icon at the festival, the rain boot was spotted on everyone from Alexa Chung, who showed how her Hunter Original Sandhurst boots can be worn with even the daintiest of dresses. Daisy Lowe also decided to shun the expected fringing and cut-off shorts for a khaki Topshop jumpsuit with a few buttons popped for good measure.

When it came to Bradley Cooper he opted for function, yet his look was so cleverly co-ordinated to his Hunter boots.

These were just a trio of Hunter clad stars. Other celebs such as Poppy Delevingne, Pixie Geldof, Suki Waterhouse and many more were spotted in Hunter boots during Glastonbury this weekend.

Celebrities Love…Bionda Castana ‘Zoe’ Sandals

Celebrities Love Bionda Castana 'Zoe' Sandals
The new bestie among the celebrity set goes by the name of Zoe. And she’s shiny, sassy, and laser-sharp—clearly, everything a starlet needs to have by her side.

A constant companion to a range of ensembles, the Bionda Castana ‘Zoe’ sandals are having a moment in the spotlight thanks to their striking, silver metallic style and geometric laser-cut straps.

While the stacked platform structure pays homage to the swinging ’70s, the retro mood is balanced by a mod flair that provides a spirited edge to any look.

Last month, Lady Gaga was spotted out in New York City wearing her pair of Zoes, which added a fun zing to her black-and-white outfit.

Brittany Snow’s sparkling silver beaded jumpsuit, seen at the CMT Awards last week, received a sprightly finishing touch with the flash of her silver sandals.

And, like Lady Gaga, Jessica Alba took her street style to the next level in New York City wearing the same ‘Zoe’ sandals, which only further elevated her scalloped white Giambattista Valli dress and denim jacket to even more perfect proportions.

Clearly, everyone needs a friend like Zoe.
