A Day In Rita Ora’s Closet

It was a busy day for Rita Ora in London yesterday, as she promoted her #1 album, ‘Ora’.

She kicked started her morning on the ‘Lorraine’ show performing her new single, ‘Shine Ya Light’ wearing a Roberto Cavalli look which included a teal devore t-shirt with a black paillette mini skirt and lace up brogues.

Rita left the ITV studios looking like she stepped out of ‘The Matrix’ film set wearing a figure-hugging leather dress, folded over-the-knee boots with a gold zipper accent – detecting a new street style trend – and an oversized trench coat with a floral lining.

A gold-and-turquoise Anna Dello Russo for H&M serpent necklace and a punchy pink lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Look number three was a colourful head-to-toe House of Holland Fall 2012 ensemble featuring a silk zigzag print dress, goat hair coat and leather lace-ups, which she wore to her meeting with OMD advertising agency.

You may have instantly recognized the designers vibrant zigzag print which we’ve seen on Little Mix and Elizabeth Banks.

Rita’s ended her day as she started it; wearing a Roberto Cavalli look.

I adore this chic animal sleek suit, which she styled with a silk black shirt.

I know animal print doesn’t work for all of you, but I would wear this look in a heartbeat; firstly hemming the pants, as I can’t bear to see clothing dragging on the floor.

Nieves Alvarez wore this same suit to the Roberto Cavalli Spring 2013 fashion show last month.

Celebrities Love…House of Holland Sunglasses

These days celebs are looking for sunglasses with a bit more personality.

Henry Holland produced super-stylish, fun shades for his House of Holland Fall 2012 collection which celebs have been snapping up in order to look uber cool when pretending to hide from the paparazzi.

Their favourites seem to be the ‘On A Promise’ round acetate sunglasses as worn by Rita Ora and Poppy Delevingne and the ‘Cagefighter’ round metal sunglasses as worn by Rihanna (in black), Rita (in gold) and Pixie Geldof who tweeted a picture of herself wearing the black version.

There are many more styles within this collection, so head over to Browns Fashion to check them out.

I really like the ‘Dot’ shades. Which do you like?

Little Mix In House Of Holland & Tee And Cake – BBC Radio 1 ‘Teen Awards’

Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock of ‘Little Mix’ joined Taylor Swift on the red carpet for the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards on Sunday at London’s Wembley Arena.

The four-piece wore a mix of different looks.

Jade wore a House of Holland silk long-sleeve navy-blue shirt dress with button-down front and a yellow, blue, red, pink and purple zig-zag print detail on the sleeves. She styled the look with limoncello Kandee ankle boots.

Jesy wore a Tee And Cake ‘Skele’ fitted black dress with a white skeleton print which she styled with a faux hawk and spiked ankle boots.

Perrie also opted for a House of Holland dress. Her cobalt-blue maxi dress with contrasting black stripes and a yellow striped zig-zag panel at the hem was styled with a spiked leather belt.

Leigh-Anne wore a hot-pink shirt with a bi-colour bralet and a black maxi skirt with a cut-out detail. She also wore a pair of ankle boots from Kandee.

The two ladies wearing House of Holland look the best. Their look is more polished and you can tell the stylist took time to dress them. The other two I don’t like – especially Leigh-Anne at the end who looks a mess I’m sorry to say.

House of Holland Spring 2013

The House of Holland Spring 2013 show was my first show during London Fashion Week.

Despite being severely jet-lagged, I was awoken by this fun, bright, colourful collection which will go down very well with his celebrity clientele and fans alike who all arrived in his Fall 2012 colourful houndstooth pieces.

The show started with a head-bopping soundtrack as models took to the runway wearing pieces with a large diamond print in mustard and mauve.

There was more excitement to be had as Holland served up luxe metallic floral jacquards and a multitude of colourful tie-dye mixes.

Every look from the short dungarees, to the oversized shirt, maxi skirts, spaghetti-strap silk dresses, biker jackets, long-sleeve maxi dresses, tunics, blazers, crop tops, shorts and tees looked super comfortable and wearable.

Key accessories included must-have bejewelled beanies, cross-body fold-over bags with crystal accents, and shoes ranging from brogues to strappy sandals.

Front Row: Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof, Leigh Lezark, Lauren Laverne and Poppy Delevigne

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Agyness Deyn, Nicola Roberts, Leigh Lezark, Pixie Geldof and Rihanna

Favourites: Tie-dye shirt with clashing tie-dye skirt and the floral drop-waist T-shirt dress

Elizabeth Banks In House of Holland – Good Morning America

Elizabeth Banks and her co-star Chris Pine made a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ to promote their new movie ‘People Like Us’ in New York City yesterday.

The Patron Saint of Colour on the Red Carpet once again donned a dress with bold, colourful hues.

Her House of Holland Fall 2012 violet sleeveless dress with a keyhole detail had zig-zag strips of pink, purple, red, blue and yellow.

Matching her dress, she donned a pair of Brian Atwood ‘Hamper’ purple pumps, which were also multi-coloured with green platforms and pink heels.

Opting for minimal makeup, Elizabeth completed her look with Jennifer Meyer and a silver ring.

Can you see a beautiful rainbow, or has she over done it on this occasion?

You can buy Elizabeth’s Brian Atwood pumps from Saks.com.
