Fashion: November 2013 Best Dressed

For this months best dressed it took me longer than usual to find a top 12 as I felt that this Autumn month lacked style. Perhaps a little ironic as the British Fashion Awards also took place....

  • Alexa Chung was pretty in Stella McCartney at The British Fashion Awards, love her hair and the black wedges add edge to the cute dress
  • Jessica Biel stunned in monochrome Christian Dior at Guggenhiem International Gala
  • Natalie Portman also wore Christian Dior (no surprise there) and this ensemble shows of her petite frame and slim waist
  • Zosia Mamet wore black Rebecca Minkoff at Gotham Independent Film Awards, I am in love with those heels she has one, this is the best she has ever looked in my opinion.
  • I was unsure about the sandals but I adore the Dolce and Gabbana dress on Scarlet Johansson at Rome Film Festival, cute ponytail too
  • Jamie Alexander wowed everybody when she wore this revealing Azzaro number to the Thor 2 premiere. I love it and she is simply stunning.
  • Taylor Swift looked like a beautiful little snowflake in this glistening Reem Acra gown she wore to Centrepoint Winter Whites Gala
  • As chic and stylish as always Olivia Palermo wore a Whistles creation to a Marie Claire event, the pumps add edge and the hair keeps it young.
  • Nina Dobrev was radiant as always in a bright Naeem Khan mini dress at The Vampire Diaries 100th ep celebration, love the Jimmy Choo sandals too
  • Naomie Harris  wore trademark Vivienne Westwood to the BAFTA LA Britannia Awards, What I love about this is the mint Christian Louboutins and the print of the dress
  • Amy Adams was looking sultry in Diane von Furstenberg at the American Hustle LA screening, this sexy screen siren look suits her.
  • Sonia Sui was stunning in a beautiful black Giorgio Armani at the 50th Golden Horse awards, styled to perfection with a classic hairstyle, statement jewels and a clutch

Fashion: Charlotte Olympia Christmas Collection

There is no denying my adoration for Charlotte Olympia and her ever fabulous collection of shoes and accessories so imagine my excitement when she unveiled her Christmas Collection...check it out below...


Charlotte Olympia’s Christmas collection is here
The ever creative Charlotte Olympia presents her latest Christmas themed collection and it is a delightful mix of gold, glamour and gingerbread man.
Clearly inspired by vintage glamour, the Charlotte Olympia label is dripping with old school Hollywood style combined with fresh and funky modern ideas to create exciting and eclectic shoes and accessories.
This particular Christmas themed compilation of shoes and bags features some adorably festal designs that would put even Scrooge in the mood for celebrating. Stand out pieces include a patent leather gingerbread clutch handbag, with the sequin details and silver embellishments making it a perfect statement piece for the Holiday season. There is also a pair of party ready metallic heeled sandals with a Christmas bow on top of the toes, fur trimmed white booties and a patent clutch bag embroidered with a cute Rudolph design all designed to bring an element of festivity to any outfit.
Of course it wouldn’t be a Charlotte Olympia collection without a twist on the trademark perspex Pandora clutch, Dolly platform heels and quirky Kitty flats. This time round the sought-after clear box clutch features a festive holly and berry clasp with deep green, berry red and black inserts, the Dolly platfoms are also given a jolly update and are available in either a velvet Santa Claus red with a gold ‘Jingle Bells’ ankle strap or bold black with a flirty mistletoe detailing on the toe, finally the Kitty pumps have been given a glitzy make over and are available in sparkling silver.
There is a total of 14 pieces in this merry little set and most certainly at least one item will catch your eye.
With every high-end designer piece from Charlotte Olympia prices start at £325 and go up to £995 but for a slice of this stylishly festive fashion range would you expect any less?
Head over to the official site to grab a piece of the action and don’t forget to follow on Twitter to stay up to date with the antics from the Charlotte Olympia family.
