Our favourite Game of Thrones actors were there and looking a little smarter than their usual attire on set. Heart-throb Kit Harington also known as Jon Snow was dressed in traditional black tie with some formal high shine shoes. Young actress Maisie Williams, also known as tough-cookie Ayra Stark looked gorgeous in her red lace cocktail dress and paired it with some gold pointed stilettos. Get her look with our On Tops heels, we have one to match every outfit.

Black was a popular gown choice this year and both Rosemund Pike and Emma Stone looked stunning in their peek-a-boo dresses, which was great for us as we got to peek at their shoes! Emma went for a minimal heel like our Parallel Sandal and Rosemund opted for a classic black court, but we would love to see her in our feisty Parisian Lace Up heel.

British Fashion Awards 2014

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Last night played host to the annual British Fashion Awards, held in The Coliseum, London. The design power houses were there in full force, with the likes of Tom Ford, Sarah Burton and Manolo Blahnik all in attendance.

Superstar models like Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne looked stunning in their sparkling gowns and Cara managed to bag Model of the Year, which came as no surprise.

Victoria Beckham arrived with her loving husband David to support the success of her label which took home Best Brand.

The girls were all sporting beautiful gowns and their shoes of choice appeared to be the classic pointed stiletto or the strappy, barely-there high heel.

The guys kept it formal too with some smart lace ups or in Harry Style’s case, his trusty Chelsea boots, which he paired with a 60’s style, burgundy pin striped suit.

The gorgeous Mollie King from The Saturdays arrived arm-in-arm with her supermodel boyfriend David Gandy and not only did she look amazing, she wore OFFICE Sophia strappy heels in black. Mollie we salute you!

Ed Sheeran

The 23-year-old Halifax-born Kiss Me star found a willing piggy back from director Emil Nava and beat off Eminem, John Legend and Pharrell to take the male video crown for Sing. He appeared all in black, including a shirt, jeans and classic Air Jordan 5 trainers.

Promspiration

Friday, June 20th, 2014

As school, college and uni days come to an end its all about the prom, summer ball or school dance, basically the most formal event you will have pre marriage.

Its all tears and tantrums over finding the perfect dress to wear let alone the nights you stay up praying that you’ll have a date. Just like Cinderella it is crucial you find the perfect shoe to match your princess gown, whether it be some glittery Les Ballet flats, Barbie style pink On Tops stilettos or a pair of classic strappy Jeopardy heels.

Unknown

Its true that American’s do it better, with our teenage years filled with the prom ideals from Grease, Pretty in Pink and Never Been Kissed. But saying that the British girls and guys have been turning it out in recent years, hiring the obligatory limo, receiving a corsage and making sure every detail is perfect.

Survival tips for prom:

If you are met with the nightmare of another girl in the same dress, style it out! Ask for a picture together and make it funny, do not cry and get angry in the privacy of a bathroom!

Avoid red drinks

Never take your heels off…..ever!!

Don’t tell your Art teacher that you fancy them (OFFICE HQ true story)

Hopefully you will have the time of your life at your prom, taking your dream date, dancing the night away and swirling your dress around like a Disney princess. However if it doesnt quite go to plan, these stories gathered from OFFICE HQ may cheer you up.

Windsor Castle Charity Dinner

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

It is his wife the Duchess of Cambridge who is a keen follower of fashion, but last night Prince William found himself surrounded by some of the most stylish names around as he hosted a gala dinner to celebrate the work of The Royal Marsden Hospital, of which he is president.

The event, was sponsored by fashion royalty Ralph Lauren who is funding a new breast cancer centre at the hospital. It saw stars of the stage, screen and catwalk gathering to enjoy a lavish three-course dinner in the grand St George’s Hall.

With the event being held in such a spectacular venue, it was only fitting that the attendees, who included Benedict Cumberbatch, Helena Bonham Carter, Kate Moss, Cate Blanchett and Emma Watson, pulled out all the stops with their outfits.

We take a look at some of the best dressed from the night.

 

Cate Blanchett

Hollywood actress Cate was one of the many guests modelling a Ralph Lauren design and she looked the epitome of elegance in an ivory, asymmetric evening gown. The simplicity of the gown was offset by a pair of statement chandelier earrings, also from Ralph Lauren, while a slick of red lipstick finished off the look.

 

Jessica Michibata

Jessica’s stunning red gown certainly ensured she stood out from the crowd, with many of the other guests sticking to more muted colour palettes. The dramatic strapless dress featured an embellished bodice and a flowing hemline.

 

Emma Watson

Emma Watson’s ensemble seems to have divided fashion critics, but we are huge fans of the sophisticated outfit, which ensured Emma looked a far cry from schoolgirl wizard Hermione Granger. The crisp white shirt paired with an artfully draped floor-length grey skirt was classic Ralph Lauren at his finest.

 

Kate Moss

Duke hosts cancer hospital benefit

Kate rarely puts a fashion foot wrong because she sticks to what she knows best and this occasion saw her reaching into her bulging closet for a classic black dress. However, the model showed black doesn’t have to be boring, thanks to the daring thigh-high split and sheer detailing on the dress.

 

Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter is a repeat offender on worst dressed lists thanks to her eccentric style, but on this occasion she was definitely one of the best dressed. Her strapless navy Ralph Lauren number was elegant, but the cascading skirt of ruffles and mish-mash of materials added intrigue.

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

offscars_header

No matter what your stance on the Oscars, they certainly do get people talking. The girls love the fashion drama…wait, so do the boys. Did you see Pharrell Williams’ short tux suit? The jury’s still out with us on that one for ourselves but boy can that man pull it off. Jared Leto and the man of the moment Matthew McConaughey tag teamed in matching white tux jackets, black trousers and black high shine shoes. Classic winning combo for two winners with Matthew McConaughey picking up ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ and Jared Leto securing ‘Best Actor in Supporting Role’, both for Dallas Buyers Club.Not one to miss out on topical conversation, we have decided to host our very own OFFICE Oscars. Welcome to the all new OFFscars (sorry it’s a tenuous link but we are kind of loving the cringey nature of it, just role with it).  We know you can’t wait to find out who won, so in the spirit of the Oscars, the winners are…

Women’s OFFscars

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

offscars_header

The Academy Awards are over for another year and they didn’t disappoint as far as fashion was concerned. We still feel a bit sorry for poor Leo missing out on a gong but Matthew McConaughey seriously deserved ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ for Dallas Buyers Club. His performances of late have been nothing short of spellbinding, I mean have you started watching True Detective yet? We have a slight obsession.

All of this appreciation has got us here at HQ thinking about how we could award something a lot more close to our hearts…shoes! As silly as it sounds, we have decided to rank our favourite shoes, boots and trainers in the first of its kind, the OFFICE Oscars – OFFscars. Cheesy, yes. Unabashed Oscars tie in, yes. Favourite shoes…yes, yes, YES!!!
Without further adieu, the winners of the OFFscars are…(cue drum rolls and applause)

And the Oscar for best outfit goes to…

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

 

Simple and elegant were the buzzwords at last night’s Academy Awards ceremony, with the best dressed actresses opting for sophisticated, classy gowns, rather than the overblown looks we’ve seen on the red carpet in recent years.

 

Leading the way were American Hustle stars Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, who may not have picked up any awards, but certainly made it onto a few best dressed lists. J-Law’s red Dior gown with peplum detail was the exact opposite of her frothy (but equally stunning) dress from last year. But while the dress may have been less fussy, that didn’t stop her taking another tumble, this time on the red carpet as she exited her car.

Amy’s tuxedo-inspired navy gown by Gucci was sleek and sophisticated and oozed Hollywood glamour when teamed with statement earrings and an elegant up do.

Speaking of Hollywood glamour, Kate Hudson certainly looked like a screen siren as she walked the red carpet in a beaded Versace number with a daringly deep v neck and cape detail. Her hair was styled to one side in soft waves and dramatic smoky eyes finished off the look.

Sandra Bullock also missed out on a gong last night, but can rest easy that she at least looked like a winner in navy blue Alexander McQueen. The silky strapless number was arguably the most flattering dress of the evening thanks to the sweetheart neckline, clever ruching at the waist and soft folds of the skirt which ended in a short train.

After much debate, we’ve also decided to include Anna Kendrick among our best dressed. The Pitch Perfect star has come in for some criticism over her J Mendel dress with some sources describing it as over fussy. And while we agree that the sheer black asymmetrical dress with floral detailing does have rather a lot going on, we think she pulled it off. Plus there was a lot to love about the dress, including the eye-catching criss-cross detailing at the back.

Last, but by no means least, we couldn’t have a best dressed list which didn’t feature the woman of the night, best actress winner Cate Blanchett. The Blue Jasmine star sparkled in a nude Armani Prive gown with a princess-style flared skirt and plenty of on-trend embellishment. The dramatic drop earrings complemented the ensemble perfectly and we’ll be hunting for a similar (and obviously more cost effective!) pair on the high street.
