Charlotte Olympia & Kate Spade New York's Cinematic Inspiration

Both Charlotte Olympia and Kate Spade New York were inspired by the magic of the cinema, with film reels, popcorn and clapboards being the aesthetic of their collection, giving the pieces an classic, old Hollywood feel.

Charlotte Olympia’s ‘Take’ Pandora clutch and the Kate Spade New York ‘Cinema City Gia’ pouch aren’t the only pieces these designers have in common.

Both Charlotte Olympia’s ‘Take’ leather ankle strap stilettos and Kate Spade New York’s ‘Fresia’ heels were inspired by celluloid film.

Selfridges also carry the Charlotte Olympia ‘Girls On Film’ PVC and silk satin heels with the designers’ signature platform.

You couldn’t have a cinematic collection without something popcorn-inspired.

Charlotte Olympia ‘Movie Night’ embroidered leather shoulder bag is probably more authentic with the red-and-white stripes than Kate Spade New York’s Cinema City Popcorn tote with the black-and-white stripes, but I would happily tote either of these whimsical pieces.

Taylor Swift hit the red carpet at the 2012 KIIS FM Jingle Ball held at Nokia Theatre’s L.A. Live on Saturday afternoon before taking to the stage to perform her latest hits, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and ‘Red’.

The singer wore a very Taylor-esqe cutesy look in this Kate Spade New York dress.

Her black-and-ivory striped satin sleeveless dress featuring a fitted bodice and a flared skirt was styled with simple black Christian Louboutin platform pumps.

Bringing her signature red pout back, Taylor completed her look with curly side-swept locks.

Kerry Washington was one of many stars who attended The Variety Studio: Awards Edition event, held at a private residence in LA on Wednesday.

She wore a Kate Spade New York ‘Adelle’ fit-and-flare polka-dot dress with ruffles cascading down the placket.

Opting to match her accessories, the ‘Scandal’ star wore grey Roger Vivier ‘Papillon’ bow-front pumps and a Nancy Gonzalez crocodile clutch.

Side-swept tumbling curls completed her chic daytime look.

After a short stint in London, Taylor Swift was spotted in Paris, France headed to the NRJ Radio station to promote her new album.

She looked pretty and presentable wearing a Kate Spade New York ‘Olsen’ dress.

The black dress with a white yoke and 3/4 length sleeves was styled with thick black tights, black pumps and a gold pendant necklace.

Wavy locks, blunt bangs and a pretty pink lip colour completed her look.

Taylor’s next stop will be Frankfurt, as she will be performing at MTV’s EMAs on Sunday.

This gorgeous Kate Spade New York dress is perfect for summer, so it’s not surprising that two fresh young Hollywood faces were recently spotted rocking the look.

Disney actress Zendaya was the first of two to be seen wearing the flowery frock at The Grove in LA for a guest appearance on ‘Extra’ with co-star Bella Thorne back in early July.

The adorable young star looked so cute sporting this prim fit-and-flare number. She paired the fun look with eye-popping Nina ‘Electra’ sandals in apple green, which were a lovely choice for this chic, summery look.

She completed her ensemble with loose waves and a gold timepiece watch.

While Zendaya spiced up this summery frock, actress Emmy Rossum seemed to take a much more laidback approach with the sleeveless dress, strolling outside the Trump hotel near Soho, New York, last week.

Emmy chose to leave the floral-print dress un-zippered at the top for a more carefree approach while stepping out for some Starbucks. She finished off the look with some standard black flats.

She too leaves her luscious locks down and untamed.

Although both young faces look great in this multi-coloured Kate Spade dress, I’m going to have to side with Zendaya hands down on this one.

She goes for a much more prim and proper look with the floral-print frock and I love her apple-green shoe choice.
