Met Gala 2015 | Who Wore What

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

Last night the stars descended on New York to attend the annual fundraising Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts.

Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Cara Delevingne were amongst the celeb elite that embraced this year’s theme, China: Through the Looking Glass and their interpretations did not disappoint.

Organiser Anna Wintour placed a ban on mobile phones and selfies on the red carpet this year as to not draw attention away from the real cause of the evening and also to keep things a bit more “classy”. A big fan of a selfie, model Cara Delevingne chose to wear a tailored jumpsuit and have an intricate, temporary tattoo etched all over her arms and neck.

Although given a strong theme to wear this year, it seemed that more favoured the nearly naked look. Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, to no surprise showed off their best assets in sheer, embellished gowns and Beyoncé took everyone’s breath away with a jewelled Givenchy gown that was nude apart from strategically placed beading.

Rihanna and Katy Perry made a bigger statement with their choice of gowns for the evening, going for bright colours rather than the traditional Chinese red that seemed to be very popular.

Katy Perry was dressed by Jeremy Scott for Moschino and oozed 90’s supermodel with her new pixie crop hair, reminiscent of Linda Evangelista back in the day.

Rihanna was draped in an enormous canary yellow dress coat, edged with intricate embroidery and fur which definately made an impact next to the vivid red carpet.

Model of the moment Kendall Jenner and Disney pop icon to bad girl Miley Cyrus opted for peek-a-boo dresses, to show off their statuesque figures.

Miley’s medieval style, studded dress was custom made by designer of the moment Alexander Wang and despite looking rather demure than usual, the songstress added her own unique edge with a slicked-back blue hairstyle.

Kendall looked every inch the red carpet mermaid with her green crystal Calvin Klein gown, laced up the side to expose just enough flesh, not quite as daring as her older sister, who is not shy to some over exposure.

Get the Look

Unfortunately the long gowns do not give us a chance to peek at the shoes but luckily some chose to expose their ankles this year.

Cara Delevingne’s tailored look by Stella McCartney was simple and sophisticated and looked great paired with a single sole heel like our black Pretty Lazer.

Mick Jagger’s daughter and model Georgia May Jagger looked breathtaking in her Oriental gown and chose to wear the shoe of the moment, the ghillie lace up. Get the look with our best selling Parisian heel in black.

There were some fashion highlights and some fashion disasters this year but as always the Met Gala did not disappoint with its host of famous faces and the odd gown a princess would be jealous of.

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

It was best foot forward for a trio of trendy-shoed stars at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Sunday’s star-studded occasion saw Taylor Swift, Beyonce and our very own Ed Sheeran in the limelight at the prestigious awards in California.

Beyonce

Beyonce stole the show as she not only won the night’s top gong, the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, she belted up a short set of songs from her most famous videos, including XO. The ultimate diva wore a sparkly leotard, fishnet tights and stunning black ankle boots. She played a 15-minute set and received her award from husband Jay Z and their baby girl Blue Ivy.

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.

Celebrating the best of British

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

 

A Who’s Who of Brit music royalty will be pulling on their finery and heading to the O2 tonight for the Brit Awards; the nation’s annual celebration of the best music produced here on home soil.

 

Those lucky enough to be attending (and those of us glued to our TV screens at home) will be treated to a host of performances, some long and emotional acceptance speeches and undoubtedly some of the ‘whaaaaat’ moments that the Brits have become known for over the years, while host James Corden tries to control proceedings.

 

We take a closer look at what we can expect from this evening’s shenanigans.

 

Who’s playing?

As is to be expected, the best of British will be taking to the stage at the O2, with Sheffield’s finest Arctic Monkeys opening the event. Bastille, whose Bad Blood was the biggest selling album of last year, will also perform, as will dance duo Disclosure, British Female Solo Artist nominee Ellie Goulding and Rudimental, who are up for three gongs.

The international music scene will be represented by Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Lorde and Pharrell Williams, while the rumour mill has hinted that none other than Beyonce may put in a surprise appearance.

 

Who’ll pick up prizes?

Arctic Monkeys are the hot favourites to pick up some of the night’s biggest gongs including British Album of the Year and British Group, but they could face stiff competition from Bastille in both categories.

David Bowie is tipped to pick up the Best British Male prize over the likes of Jake Bugg and Tom Odell, if he does win, it would make him the oldest person to ever take home a trophy from the event.

 

Ellie Goulding seems a dead cert to take home the British Female Solo Artist statuette, and our money would be on One Direction to take home at least one of the three prizes they’re up for, otherwise the Brits organisers may face a backlash from angry tweens!

 

Only one artist can head to the ceremony confident; Sam Smith already has the Critics’ Choice award in the bag.

 

Will there be a scandal?

It wouldn’t be the Brits unless there was a headline grabbing scandal. From Jarvis Cocker bursting on stage while Jacko performed Earth Song to Chumbawamba throwing iced water over John Prescott, Robbie Williams challenging Liam Gallagher to a fight and James Corden interrupting Adele’s acceptance speech, every year something eventful happens.

 

This year, our money’s on the Arctic Monkeys to provide the drama. The band boycotted the ceremony in 2006 and openly mocked the organisers in 2008 when they collected a gong dressed as country squires. They’ll have plenty of opportunities to cause mischief this year, as they’ll be performing and are the favourites to pick up a couple of awards.
