Laura Bailey x L.K. Bennett Capsule Collection

Laura Bailey x LK Bennett Collection

L.K. Bennett hosted a party at their Knightsbridge store in London on Tuesday March (25) to celebrate the L.K.Bennett London by Laura Bailey collection.

The model turned designer Laura Bailey created a capsule of five shoe designs and clutch bags with a retro modern vibe, which pretty much sums up her style.

Laura’s inspiration for this collection includes summers spent travelling to Amalfi. The colour palette is taken directly from the beach, with ocean blue and sandy yellow in bold zig-zags and stripes alongside nautical tones of navy and red, punctuated with linen white.

Laura attended the event last night working a colour block look, which included a Shrimps clutch and her very own Laura Bailey x L.K. Bennett ‘Claudia’ sandals.

It looks like her friend Donna Air had the same idea, as she wore the same heels, matching her look with the Laura Bailey x L.K. Bennett ‘Bella’ clutch.

Celebrities Love…Anya Hindmarch ‘Crisp Packet’ Clutches

Anya Hindmarch' ‘Crisp Packet’ Clutch

The celebrity set has been experiencing a relentless craving for the Anya Hindmarch ‘Crisp Packet’ clutch ever since its Spring 2014 debut. This salty little number is positively mouthwatering with its crinkly appeal in a variety of rich, metallic hues—and it’s completely calorie-free.

To create the clutch, the designer used photos and three-dimensional renderings of a real packet of salt-and-vinegar Walker’s Crisps and worked with specialist artisans in Italy—ultimately taking the everyday bag of crisps to luxe new levels.

The sass of the ‘Crisp Packet’ clutch is what makes it so delicious, elevating any red-carpet look with a shiny dose of attitude and mod, directional appeal.

Just within the last few weeks, Olivia Wilde, Lily James, Kerry Washington, and Nathalie Emanuel have been spotted carrying the clutch, which pairs as seamlessly with an ethereal, princess gown as it does with an edgy cocktail number.

Diane Kruger, Maria Sharapova, Emma Watson, Cherry Ngan, and Solange Knowles are among the red-carpet lovelies who have also indulged in a crisp or two, ensuring that this little bag of goodness has plenty of staying power.

Freida Pinto In Prabal Gurung – South x Southwest Neiman Marcus Make Some Noise Event

Freida Pinto In Prabal Gurung - South x Southwest Neiman Marcus Make Some Noise Event

Freida Pinto joined Neiman Marcus for their ‘South x Southwest Neiman Marcus Make Some Noise’ event during the 2015 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival on Thursday (March 19) in Austin, Texas.

We don’t get to see the Indian actress on the red carpet much these days, but we can always rely on her to bring plenty of colour and flare to such events.

Case in point, her Prabal Gurung Fall 2015 dress may be simple in design, but this summer-ready piece has maximum visual impact due to the deconstructed fair isle print.

Black pumps would’ve been an easy option, but Freida’s love for colour saw her go down the purple route, selecting a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo patent ‘Susi’ pumps.

Get The Look: Amanda Seyfried’s ‘While We’re Young’ Premiere French Braids

Get The Look  Amanda Seyfried's 'While We're Young' Premiere French Braids

Celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora worked with Amanda Seyfried for the premiere of ‘While We’re Young’ on Monday (March 23).

When describing his inspiration, Renato said, “When I saw Amanda’s dress, I knew I wanted the hair to feel youthful, playful, and innocent. I decided on French braids but still wanted to maintain a bit of sophistication and structure.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Beginning with dry hair, he applied Oribe Foundation Mist and used a blow dryer and brush to refresh her hair after a day of press.

Next he made a centre part from the top of the head to the nape of the neck, creating two sections. He then applied Oribe Rough Luxury Molding Wax in sections, to give the hair texture and hold. He then began the French braid on one side of the head.

He made sure to start with a small section (about a quarter to a half inch) so the braid laid flat on the head. He pulled the top of the hair tight, which really opened up Amanda’s beautiful eyes. As he continued the braid down her head, he gradually increased the size of the sections and secured the end with a hair tie.

He moulded the remaining piece of the braid into my desired shape at the nape of the neck and secured with pins. He then repeated the same process on the other side of the head.

He finished off the look with a bit of N.4 Mighty Hairspray.
