With the imminent launch of Disney’s Maleficent marked in our diaries, we take a look at the wicked world of the fashionable movie villain…
It’s been ten long years since Carrie and co last graced our small screens with their funny, frank and fabulous take on life as single women. While the first episode aired waaay back in 1998, the dating dilemmas of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte still ring true today and the same can be said of their style. Sure, some of their outfits may have been just a little eccentric and not entirely wearable, but just like the sharp, sexy script, it was these risks that made the show, and Carrie, iconic.

On Wednesday, we shone the Simply Be style spotlight on the brightest stars from the music industry at the 37th annual Brit Awards. With a red carpet well-trodden by some of the biggest and best music acts to have ever existed, it is a night famed for fashion, fantastic performances and a fair share of celebrity scandal (we’re looking at you Messrs Cocker, Block and Brand!).
While it’s safe to say that last night’s show was a decidedly better behaved affair than previous years, the stars did not disappoint in the style stakes. We take a look at some of our favourite looks from the Brits 2014.
Alongside big sis Kylie, Dannii hit the red carpet in a figure-hugging black dress that just pipped her siblings outfit the post to make it onto our list.
While Kylie opted for a tight PVC number adorned with two big bows, the ex-X Factor host opted for a demure frock with glitzy borders and a sexy lace insert that travelled all the way up her thigh. Continue reading
The most glamorous night in British cinema, the annual BAFTA awards took place on Sunday at a rather chilly Royal Opera House in central London. In true award ceremony style, the acting elite descended on the capital in their Sunday best and lit up the red carpet with their gorgeous gowns and slick suits. From a shimmering Fearne to an androgynous Ange, we round up the hottest looks from the night…
On presenting duties, Fearne showcased her trademark rock chick-meets-vintage-glam style with this glitzy gold gown. Beautifully adorned with sparkling details, seductive smoky eyes and worn with a retro wavy bob, Fearne’s gorgeous look had a touch of old school Hollywood glamour. Continue reading
Who would have guessed that a 1995 movie adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma would lead to a two decade style crush on preppy skirts and plaid? Be neither a fashion victim nor ensembly challenged and check out these totally bitchin’ outifits inspired by nineties teen classic, Clueless. Continue reading
Who’s that girl? The one with the to-die-for wardrobe? Oh that’s right, IT’S JESS. Jess Day from TV’s brilliant sitcom, New Girl, that is.
Glisten up girls! Get ready to celebrate NYE in style this year with our fave hair and beauty looks. Whether you opt for super sleek hair a’la Jennifer Lawrence or metallic nails inspired by the AW13 catwalk, we’ve got it covered so you can make the ultimate statement on the dance floor on New Years Eve!
Starring alongside Michael Douglas in the 1992 erotic thriller, Sharon Stone plays Basic Instinct’s devil in a white dress (and no knickers) flawlessly. With an icy blonde bob, figure-hugging dress, killer heels and a cut-throat stare, she has to be the most fashionable femme fatale ever to grace our screens.
Throughout the movie, Catherine Tramell (Stone’s character) is dressed in the pale, neutral hues of white and beige. This is a smart move by costume designer, Ellen Mirojnick, who avoids the cliché of dark vampy dresses for the brash and highly charged Catherine and, instead, further fuels the whodunit mystery by dressing our suspect in light, innocent tones. Some might argue that these blanched shades do nothing to fight for Tramell’s innocence; on her, they appear cold, contemporary and sexed up…much like Stone’s portrayal of the saucy siren.

Catching Fire, the second instalment of the fantastic Hunger Games trilogy, hits our screens tomorrow and boy, are we excited! Based on the spellbinding books by Suzanne Collins, we’ve been enthralled by Panem and its troubled inhabitants since that very first chapter. Remaining true to the dark, tormented atmosphere of the books, the 2012 cinematic adaptation perfectly portrayed Collins’ terrifying but spectacular vision of the future, and Catching Fire looks set to be a stunner. Continue reading
Welcome to our new feature, where we’ll be looking back at our favourite style crushes in TV and Film. To start us off we’ve got the ultimate Hollywood style icon, Audrey Hepburn in one of our favourite old time movies Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Here Audrey Hepburn portrays the beautiful socialite Holly Golightly and struts some wonderful fashion along the way. Here are our favourite style moments from the film.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Audrey without the statement black dress. This iconic look is timeless and looks oh-so chic. Dress yours with tights and chunky jewellery to update the look. This bandage style bodycon dress is so versatile – dress it up or down for any party occasion.
We love her statement coat, perfect for gallivanting around New York City or wherever you happen to be! It’s also perfect for injecting some bright colour into the dull winter days and this bright orange coat is a hot trend, which is selling fast!
Now it wouldn’t be complete without the accessories and make-up of course! And Holly Golightly certainly knows a thing or two about accessorising as these iconic images show…
Get the look with these fab pieces:
Her make up is impeccable and we love her long dark lashes teamed with soft pink lips. This look is so demure yet sexy at the same time. For a special night out we love trying our hand at false lashes and these layered lashes can instantly give you that wow factor. Add a slick of eyeliner to complete the look.
Over the summer we have covered our nails in bold and bright colours and as much as we love it, this style considers a more subtle look. This Butter London nail varnish in Teddy Girl is just the thing for that chic, just manicured look – nude/pinky tone nails are going to be big next Spring Summer so take note now, team with this Dainty Doll lipstick aptly named Material World.
