Ashley Madekwe In Topshop – BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate The British New Wave at Topshop

Ashley Madekwe In Topshop - BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate the British New Wave at Topshop Topman at The Grove

On Tuesday, Ashley Madekwe turned out for the BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate the British New Wave event, hosted at Topshop Topman at The Grove in Los Angeles, California.

Naturally, the ‘Revenge’ actress pledged her allegiance to Topshop with this exploded-check dungaree jumpsuit, worn with simple black sandals and a black, copper-accented clutch.

And, in so doing, she further extended my love of the jumpsuit—even one inspired by overalls.

While not all starlets could carry off this mannish moment nor the peg-pant silhouette, Ashley did so with stylish aplomb.

Loose waves and nude makeup softened the masculine edge, and a gold charm necklace added a glint of shine.

Janelle Monae in Topshop – BET’s ‘106 & Park’

Janelle Monae in Topshop - BET's '106 & Park'

Janelle Monáe cut a cool-girl profile for an appearance on BET’s ‘106 & Park’ show at the BET Studios yesterday in New York City, where she premiered the music video for her new single, ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ featuring Erykah Badu.

The pint-sized pop star suited up in a Topshop white blazer with a plunging, black grosgrain collar, paired back to a matching set of wide-leg trousers.

Janelle generally trends towards more androgynous looks, so I wasn’t surprised to see her in a suit.

But I loved the more feminine polish of this crisp ensemble, which was impeccably tailored and elongated her petite frame.

The mannish, monochromatic moment also echoed the styling of her ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ video.

A shimmering, smokey eye and a glossy, nude lip prettified the look even more, while her signature uber-sculptural ‘do added a dose of funky edge.

Celebrities Love…Number Tees

Celebrities Love Number Tees

No longer relegated to the football field, the jersey shirt has moved from the stadium to the style arena. The newest number crunchers on the scene include a group of bold beauties, who are playing their own fashion game with the number tee.

British TV presenter Caroline Flack took her red ’73’ Topshop version on vacation, using an oversized variation as a beach coverup.

Singer Brandy wore a different spin on the athletic Topshop shirt, parading out her double digits as a minidress and adding a pop edge with finger gloves, shoe boots and a blunt fringe bang.

Counting on a lucky 22, Ciara put a sporty edge on her live performance in Atlantic CIty last month with a black jersey paired with skinny jeans and trainers. The songstress also showed us her washboard abs with a second less-is-more approach to numerals. She cut it short with a cropped ‘1991’ sweater from Topshop to which she brought some grunge appeal with ripped denim and rugged work boots.

Does the number-tee trend add up, in your opinion?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Topshop – Inauguration Of Warner Bros. Studios

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Topshop - Inauguration Of Warner Bros Studios

Since becoming pregnant, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has managed to win us over with her maternity style – by ‘us’ I am very much including myself.

When the duchess arrived at the Inauguration Of Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in Watford, England this morning, the mum-to-be – who was joined by Prince William and Prince Harry as they took the famous Harry Potter tour – wore a £38.00 dress from Topshop.

It instantly became such a hot commodity that it sold out in about an hour.

The polka-dot dress was styled with black suede shoes – obvs – a black Ralph Lauren cropped blazer and a small black box clutch.

Her hair was teased into gorgeous loose waves, plus she rocked a pair of pearl drop earrings.

Sienna Miller In Topshop – 2013 Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party

Sienna Miller In Topshop - 2013 Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party

Sienna Miller attended the star-studded Vanity Fair party at the 2013 Tribecca Film Festival in New York City.

The actress wore a floral lace Topshop dress paired with medallion-embellished black pumps and an over-the-shoulder Delvaux ‘Madame’ bag.

I absolutely love the shape and style of this dress on Sienna. She’s the perfect height for this silhouette, and it looks fun and flirty.

I also love Sienna’s next-to-nothing makeup look–she has flawless skin, and really doesn’t need anything on it–and her face was made for bangs. However, I do wish she’d pulled her hair up. The messy, half-up/half-down style makes this look much more casual, and it also distracts from the dress.

A messy ponytail would have stayed true to Sienna’s easy style, but would have been a bit more chic.
