Christian Dior Fall 2015 Front Row

Christian Dior Fall 2015 Front Row

Earlier today (March 6) Christian Dior presented its Fall 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week with a front row which didn’t included the usual suspects.

Dakota Johnson: Fresh from her promo tour for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, the actress who has been flitting between black and white red carpet looks settled for black on this occasion. I love how the off-the-shoulder style provides a fresh, modern-cool slant for this beautifully tailored tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit with a flattering, sophisticated silhouette. The pink cuff is a head scratcher, but the rest of the styling is perfectly complementary.

Hailee Steinfeld: I didn’t recognise Hailee in this Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2015 look. In fact I thought this was Kendall Jenner. The young actress is growing up fast; ditching girlie dresses for a more grown up look which still maintains a youthful flare. Aside from the out-of-place white clutch, I covet this look from head to toe, including that frosty pink lip.

Lorde: The singer added a backpack to her modern, minimalist Pre-Fall 2015 look which ordinarily I would frown at, but she made it work adding her own brand of cool to the look.

Lorde In Narciso Rodriguez – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Lorde In Narcisco Rodriguez – 2015 Golden Globes Awards 2

Lorde tried the tuxedo trend at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday (January 11).

With baggy ill-fitting black pants and a peekaboo transparent crop top, the singer was a renegade on the red carpet in her Narciso Rodriguez Pre-Fall 2015 pantsuit in black. Adding to the maverick style, she opted for a heavy ornate diamond and platinum Neil Lane choker.

With hair styled into a low bun, the look was even more severe. And with goth cherry red lipstick, Lorde looked dated and older.

This outfit felt more Addams Family than up-and-coming rockstar.

Salvaging this look would involve a tailor and a trip to a tween store.

Lorde In Schiaparelli – ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ – Part 1′ London Premiere

Lorde In Schiaparelli - 'The Hunger Games Mockingjay' – Part 1' London Premiere

Lorde, who personally curated the track list for the ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ – Part 1′ soundtrack – on which she makes multiple appearances alongside such names as Charli XCX, CHVRCHES, and the Chemical Brothers – attended the world premiere held at the Odeon Leicester Square on Monday (November 10).

While the leading ladies brought colour and glamour to the red carpet, the 18-year-old musician served up a mannish offering in her favourite colour: black.

I’m sure many would agree that this oversized Schiaparelli Fall 2014 Couture tuxedo with its bold shoulders, baggy trousers and large lapels perhaps would’ve worked better on the queen of androgynous dressing, Tilda Swinton; however, I do think Lorde just about pulls this off.

Placing her hands in her pockets stops the blazer from overwhelming her petite frame, and I love the red lippie to give this a touch of feminine flavour.

Lorde In Proenza Schouler – 2014 iHeartRadio Music Festival

Lorde In Proenza Schouler - 2014 iHeartRadio Music Festival

Lorde performed onstage during the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Festival held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday (September 20) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In keeping with her favoured style of all things set in a moody dark colour palette, the singer wore a Proenza Schouler crop top accentuated with high-waist trousers, both of which are emblazoned with a bold, abstract animal print from the Fall 2014 collection.

The grungy fit was amped up with black Chelsea boots, and only onstage did she wear her signature dark-berry lip.

Get The Look: Lorde’s MTV Video Music Awards Bold Waves

Always one to make a statement, award-winner singer, Lorde sported a beautifully bold waved hairstyle at MTV Video Music Awards (August 24th).

Celebrity hairstylist, Andy LeCompte drew inspiration from Jerry Hall’s signature waved tresses and developed a look that perfectly topped off Lorde’s look of the evening.

It was essential that the hairstyle look elegant and touchable while retaining its sheen long after its initial styling. This touchable and glamorous hairstyle can easily be recreated by following these simple tips:

Prep: Staring with clean, freshly washed hair was a must. Andy washed and conditioned Lorde’s hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.

Styling (blowout): Once hair was thoroughly washed, Andy prepped her hair with Wella Professionals LuxeOil Keratin Boost Leave In Conditioning Spray. He applied the product while the hair was still damp to insure the perfect base for heat styling. He followed by blow drying the hair using a large ceramic brush to create natural and smooth volume.

Styling (wave): To create the classic Jerry Hall look, Andy parted Lorde’s hair in a deep side part and curled the hair with an 1 ½ inch ceramic curling iron. Starting from the base all the way to the crown of the hair, Andy created long loose waves.

Setting: To get that impeccable shine, he applied 2-3 pumps of Wella Professionals LuxeOil Reconstructive Elixir and warmed it up between his palms. He gently ran the product through the curls to neatly define the waves and lock in the sheen.

Finish: Andy added a final finishing touch to the hair by lightly misting the waves with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray. Not only does this tame any pesky flyaways but hair looks healthy and touchable long after the first spay.

Try your hand at this chic hairstyle and you’ll surely fell like a royal all evening.

Lorde In Chanel – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA


As is her habit, Lorde avoided the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards tonight (August 24) at The Forum in Los Angeles, and went straight into the show.

But thanks to the singer’s Instagram feed, we were able to see that she’s rocking a long velvet jumpsuit from Chanel’s Fall 2014 collection.

This look is perfectly in line with Lorde’s dark and mysterious sense of fashion, and her natural curls blown out smooth and a bold purple lip complete her glamorous but dark ensemble.
