Hair-Spiration...

BY Rachel Ladipo IN , , , , , , , , No comments

Summer '14 is well under way and the hair trend of the season is of course 'The Bob'. Always a style staple this year its about the awkward length - you know too short for a hair tie but too long to be considered a pixie cut.

 Here's a few celebs who've gone for the big chop and are really persuading me to follow suit...
My current fave Hairspo has to be the one and only Lara Bingle! We're used to seeing her with medium length hair but this new look she's rocking is definitely making her stand out from the crowd. I love how awkward the length is and how blunt the chop is. Uber chic!


Since starring in American Horror Story: Coven, Emma Roberts' star has been steadily rising and she is fast becoming a Style Supreme. Ditching the overused long blonde beachy waves for an edgier angled bob is doing wonders for shedding Roberts' Girl Next Door image.


  
I'm loving off Kylie Jenner right now! She's chopped off her 'Baby Kardashian' image just by chopping a few inches off her mane! She served as a serious Hairspo on Tumblr when she had the blue dip-dyed hair but my fave look of hers is her most recent - jet black. Makes her look ultra sophisticated. 90s Baby!


So I'm cheating with this one as this isn't Ciara's most recent look but it's my fave! Ciara has come a long way in the style department since she first stepped on the scene. She's developed a sense of sophistication and her wigs are giving me life right now! I'm seriously considering opting for the shorter bob on the right. If I bottle it then I'm defo going to go for the safer cut on the left!

Clouds of Sils Maria Premiere...

The who's who of Hollywood took to the red carpet for the premiere of 'Clouds of Sils Maria', the new movie starring Chloe Moretz, Kristen Stewart and Juiliette Binoche. The two young actresses rocked two very different Chanel ensembles but both managed to look equally chic.
A firm believer of keeping it simple, Kristen Stewart stayed true to her personality in this jumpsuit from the Chanel Spring 2014 collection teamed with Christian Louboutin heels. I love that she opted for an easy to wear look that still had a little sparkle. And of course in true Kristen fashion she ditched the heels for a pair of sneakers- at least they were Chanel! 

My favourite of the two looks is this couture gown from the Chanel Spring 2013 collection. The shredded chiffon and feather accents give this look a fairytale like vibe. Keeping everything else understated with Chopard jewellery, Stuart Weitzman sandals and minimal makeup, she got this look spot on. 

The Circus Goes To Paris...

In case you weren't aware, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting married this weekend. With no expense spared, these two have taken over Paris for the week and the next stop is reportedly going to be Florence.
The Kardashian-West clan have been papped non-stop in the build up to the big event and one Kardashian sister in particular is making sure she is looking photo-ready.

I love this Valentino Guipure Lace dress Khloe is wearing, teamed with a Valentino fringed clutch and Anthony Vaccarello sandals. Finishing off the look with muted makeup and a Valentino-esque slicked back low pony really gave Khloe the edge over mama bear Kris who recently wore the same dress. Although I do love those chunky gold earrings she had on.


Accessory wise Khloe kept on trend with an assortment of Romanian Gypsy inspired pieces by Lorraine Schwartz and Cartier 

For the pre-wedding luncheon Khloe donned a stunning custom designed gold Lira Constatina & Louise gown. The plunging neckline and thigh high slit almost had me mistake her for Kim! This dress is actually my fave of the night.

Another great evening look; Khloe wore a black Tuxedo dress by Gucci, with Christian Louboutin heels and another Valentino fringed clutch, this time in leopard print. The vampy makeup look and the loose waves have me foaming at the mouth!

Who: Nicola Roberts
What: Gabrielle's Gala

Where: London

When: Wednesday 7th May 2014
Nicola Roberts is the epitome of sophistication in this rayon maxi dress by Body Frock. The olive coloured gown looks amazing against her porcelain skin and compliments her red locks. I love that she kept everything minimal, loose waves, barely there makeup and no accessories; she proved you can keep it simple and still look glamourous.

Before Batman... There Was Gotham

BY Rachel Ladipo IN , , No comments


The first official trailer for the much anticipated series Gotham was released this week. The origins series takes place well before Bruce Wayne became The Batman and when Jim Gordon was a strapping young thing (Ben McKenzie). In the two- minute promo (which has already accumulated over 5 million views on YouTube) we get a glimpse of some Batman's most infamous villains all in their mini me incarnations; Cat Woman, Poision Ivy and The Riddler.

videoThe series centres around Detective Gordon and will premiere on FOX in the fall. I was a huge fan of The Dark Knight trilogy, so if the television series is anything like it, I'll be glued to my screen until next summer. Although, I wish it was scheduled for a mid season showing. Is it just me, or are all the best shows on mid season?!
