Our Favourite Celebrity Looks Of The Week…

It's been a busy week for the uber stylish celeb pack this week, with lots of red carpet events that have showed off some amazing dresses. First up, Cameron Diaz proves that she has the most fabulous pair of legs in Hollywood in this gorgeous Victoria Beckham grey and white dress (we love the hidden pleat detail). Selena Gomez made this fierce Armani red trouser suit look young and fresh on Wednesday when making a speech at We Day California. Sex And The City's Kristin Davis showed us her structured side with this Roksanda Illincic dress at the Fatal Attraction press night, and Shailene Woodley was our favourite, in this bright tangerine column dress, also by Roksanda. We hope there's some inspiration for you there Musers!

Muse Trend Flash – DUNGAREES!

They say if you see something three times or more, it's a trend, which must mean that dungarees - although they do come in and out of fashion - are totally on trend right now! We've spotted everyone from Fearne Cotton in her ripped short pair, to Gaga in her statement leather dungarees. Even Heidi Klum is rocking them for during the day. There's LOTS to chose from on the high street, and as usual we've trawled all the best shops to find some of the coolest pairs for you. And don't worry, these aren't bank-breaking prices! Happy shopping Musers...

 

Check out Bec Waters’ Top Five Coats…

We asked one of our favourite fashionista Musers - Bec Waters of www.trendetbeau.blogspot.com - what her top coats were for the season. Here's what she said...

  I know it's a tad late in the season, but come on, here in the UK we often have snow in March, so if you haven't found that perfect winter coat yet, you still have time. I was trawling through the high street at the end of last year looking for my new winter coat, as let's be honest, after you've brought the same one out year after year for a fair while, it starts to look a bit... drab, so this year it was time for me to upgrade. My old option was a camel coloured swing coat, with a furry hood and two pom pom balls. Below is a photo of me in said coat. This was a snowy February last year, so there's still hope for next month! Also, please appreciate the amazing orange cat hat and the very very small snowman!   So this year I wanted to keep along the duffle coat theme. I really love the way duffle coats look: fashionable, fun and never date. I also look for a hood when buying a new coat, as with the weather here you never know if you'll have to use it or not.  I checked out my favourite high street store, and here are my top five winter duffle coats which are perfect for this season. And of course my number ONE is the coat I own. And I love it.  

FIVE - Topshop's hooded lightweight jacket, £60 

"The perfect casual day to day coat. It's navy blue which is a great colour for winter as it matches everything, plus it doesn't really show up dirt (always a plus). It reminds me of a Barbour Jacket too!"

  

FOUR - Matalan's wool blend fit and flare coat, £45

 

"Everyone needs a warm black coat and this one is stunning. It's mid length which will keep your bum warm (perfect if you end up perched on a wall or sitting on a cold bench while waiting for someone…or a bus!) It has a tie waist belt which accentuates your waist and has a funnel neck to keep you extra toasty."

 

THREE - F&F's Faux Fur Collar Textured Dolly Coat, £60

 "Now this coat is my definition of cute and amazing. The soft faux fur, the colour, the cut, it's perfection and I love it. And it's a bargain at £60 from Tesco!! Yep, Tesco! I couldn't believe it when I found this beauty. Need I say more?"

 

TWO - Debenhams' Collection  Natural hooded duffle coat, £65

"This coat was a contender for my winter warmer but I did end up passing it by and getting the next coat on the list. This one is gorgeous and I love the details of the metal clip style toggles on this duffle coat. It's very clean cut and a gorgeous colour, I was just afraid I'd get it dirty!"

ONE - My coat, Collection at Debenhams Grey hooded duffle coat, Currently £40 down from £80

 

"I love the fabric of this coat, it feels great quality and keeps you feeling warm even though it's not that thick. The colour is a soft grey and it suits pretty much all skin tones, as well as matching the majority of clothes in my wardrobe."

*Me in my favourite coat!*

 

So there’s my top picks! Enjoy finding your perfect coat this season.

The Grammy Awards 2014: Our top 5 best dressed…

Here they are Musers, our top five best dressed celebrities from last night's Grammy Awards, held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. The Grammy's red carpet is a notorious stomping ground for all the most amazing stars in music - and beyond - to display their super amazing wardrobe choices, often taking more risks than at other awards ceremonies. This year was, by the standards of years past, a bit disappointing. Many celebs chose quite understated gowns. There was though a few that we gasped at when we saw them walk the rouge. First up, Taylor Swift in this gorgeous metallic Gucci gown. She did actually say when interviewed on the red carpet that it was as heavy as it looks! Next, Rita Ora stunned in shimmering Lanvin. This dress changed it's colour with every different movement, and she actually said she wanted a change from a floor length gown. It's a great choice. Next, and our favoutite of the night, is Katy Perry, who stole the show in this Valentino couture gown. This was only shown on the catwalk last week, so it's a super exclusive for Katy. It's whimsical and novelty all in one, SO her! Kelly Osbourne, with her still amazing purple hair, opted for a LBD (long black dress) by Badgley Mischka. She looks tall, statuesque and gorgeous. A really great dress on her. And lastly Beyonce, in this white semi-sheer floral number by Michael Costello. She loves to flaunt her curves, and this one did just that... PERFECTLY. It was the most amazing fashion choice for Bey. The right amount of glamour, chicness and sass all in one. Until next year Musers! (or the Oscars!)  

Our favourite looks from award season so far…

It's award season Musers. And for those who don't know what we're talking about... RED CARPET TIME!!

Spring trends you need to know about…

It's a new year, which means new trends. And we couldn't be more excited! We're fed up with all this cold, rainy weather now. Enough thanks. It's time for a bit of sun, and some spring/summer fashions. We've scouted the catwalks for this new season and we are pleased to say... WE WANT EVERYTHING! We'll be giving you the low down of all the trends that you need to watch out for, starting with these three below. Stay tuned for more every week!  

MONOCHROME MADNESS!

Yes, it's a colour palette that comes back again and again, but for spring/summer, it's even more fabulous! Think versatile cardis, chic cropped jackets and trousers that show off some ankle.

On the left, Balmain shows off its amazing black and white houndstooth print, and on the right Victoria Beckham demonstrated her design talent with lots of monochrome looks, like this pleated skirt option.

THE LUXE SWEAT

One of our favourite trends from the catwalks, and probably one of the easiest to wear and buy into - all the major high street stores have loads of luxe sweats in right now, so don't think you have to wait for sunshine.

You may be asking why a sweater for summer, but we're not talking massive fleece, thick varieties. There's thinner, fashion-y options to be had too. Chose those with two-tone colours, fabric mixes or big jewels!

STRIPE IT UP!

If in doubt, add a stripe! Simply. Or is it? Well, kind of. Stripes can be a difficult one to master. They say a horizontal one slims you down and a vertical one contours and accentuates parts of your body, but we say JUST MIX THEM UP!

With all the amazing stripes around at the moment, you don't have to worry. Thick and neon like Emilia Wickstead's on the right, or chic and elegant like Givenchy's to the left.
