GET THE LOOK FOR LESS: SUEDE SKIRT

If you are not fully keen on the 70s look or simply not sure how to rock the trend, you can easily update your wardrobe by adding one or two key items.

For me, a suede skirt is the easiest way to do this! This pays homage to the trend without looking like you are auditioning for an ABBA tribute band.

Whether you have some cash to splash or want to bag a bargain, here are two gorgeous skirts to suit your budget! Also be sure to check out my latest article on how to style this skirt! (read here!)

I WANT WHAT SHE WORE: OLIVIA PALERMO

Olivia Palermo, for me, just does not get it wrong when it comes to personal style. She incorporates trends while still staying true to her own signature (think belts, fur gillets and blazers!) and she is one of my style icons. (see my why here!)

She stepped out this week wearing an off-the shoulder top from Johanna Ortiz and I feel in love. With a price tag of $500, this may be one for the credit card but for a more economical purchase, why not steal her style, with this similar top from pixiemarket.com.

Wear with jeans, like Olivia, or team with a white midi skirt for an added twist of femininity.

RED CARPET REPORT: TEEN CHOICE AWARDS 2015

Tinseltown was a buzz with Hollywood’s hottest celebrities last night, as the red carpet was rolled out for the 2015 Teen Choice Awards.

As per usual, I am more interested in who wore what, than who actually took home the surf board awards for winning Best Newcomer, (which Little Mix actually won! Yay!!) or any of the other awards.

Here are my thoughts on the looks from the night!

slide_446756_5944726_compressed

Loving Sarah Hyland’s lemon ensemble! I would wear this this weekend! Such a perfect Summer look and Sarah always gets the tone and the theme of the red carpet correct and wears appropriate looks. Teen Choice is fun, fresh and young; everything she is personifying in with this look.

shay

I am a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars’ star, Shay Mitchell and her style and this outfit is rocking. This is probably in my top 3 looks of the night. It’s sexy without being too much and again the color is just perfect for this time of year.

slide_446756_5944728_compressed

I like this dress a lot but I don’t feel it is styled correctly. I don’t like the shoes with it and I feel Lea could have gone for a dress that is a little more her age and sophisticated.

slide_446756_5944736_compressed

Yes, yes, yes! Bella Thorne makes me want to buy an orange mini dress now and I never thought I would ever utter those words!

slide_446756_5944738_compressed

Maia Mitchell is stunning and this top is just too mature for her 21 years. It drowns her and she looks lost. Not winning in the style stakes here.

slide_446756_5944740_compressed

Chloe Grace Moretz got this all wrong. It looks thrown together, even though I am sure she was going for a sophisticated vintage look, it just did not come together here.

slide_446756_5944742_compressed

I love a power suit and many people have pulled off this look on the red carpet, even in this bold color (I am thinking Blake Lively wearing Micheal Kors on Good Morning America see here!) but Rita Ora is not one of them. The material looks outdated and, dare I say, tacky, and with pink hair, this look makes my worst dressed list.

 

slide_446756_5944744_compressed

 

Nina Dobrev has an amazing stylist and I was lucky to work with her when I worked in Los Angeles but this look puts her on my worst dressed list. The sequins and the stripes just do not do it for me. Sorry Nina!

slide_446756_5944746_compressed

Loving this entire look from Lucy Hair. Her hair and makeup compliment this gorgeous dress and I love that she is keeping it simple with her black, strappy heels and small clutch.

slide_446756_5944752_compressed

Beautiful. However, I do think this look is more Cannes than it is Teen Choice but I LOVE it. Emma Roberts pulls it out of the bag!

slide_446756_5944754_compressedIt looks like this was a very last minute look that was pulled together and it does not work. The hair, too, is just not a good look.

slide_446756_5944760_compressed

Making my top three best looks, is Victoria Justice. I love this color, the fringe, the length and the accessories. Job well done Victoria!

slide_446756_5944836_compressed

It pains me to go against my beloved Britney but this outfit is just horrendous. The only thing about this look that I like is her rainbow, unicorn hair. I love that but my love of this look, literally stops at her neck.

yara sahidi

Yara Shahidi looks amazing. I love this dress. The color on her is amazing and her hair is, just, wow! She looks young, she looks fresh and she has dressed her age. #winnerwinner

zendaya

Zendaya has become one to watch on the red carpet and I love that the 18 year old changes up her look and is not afraid of experimenting with beauty and fashion. If you are going to wear a skirt with a high slit, you are competing with the leg game changer, Angelina, and most recently Kendall Jenner, who both took the leg reveal to a whole new level, which this look is just not on. While I say that, I also think she looks great!

bea miller

Singer Bea Miller, is just 16 and I am happy to see her dressing young. However, I feel like she looked up some street style pictures or some instagram style looks and went with that. She doesn’t look comfortable and for me that is an indicator, that this isn’t her true self and true personal style, rather a manufactured look.

chelsea kane

I just love this asymmetrical look worn by Chelsea Kane and I would totally rock this for Friday night drinks. #blackandwhiteforlife

peyton list

Peyton List. What. Were. You. Thinking? This has far too much going on and I just don’t know where to look! If she had kept the accessories simple and teamed with a white crop, maybe this could have worked far better. Maybe.

fifth harmony

Fifth Harmony are a group that, to me, never look cohesive or, for want of a better word, harmonious. I get that they each have their own styles and want to express that, and I am in no way condoning the Destiny’s Child matching looks circa 2003, but they always look disjointed to me. I like none of the looks, that any of the girls are sporting.

CULT BEAUTY PRODUCTS I LOVE

Every beauty junkie will know about most of these cult products from around the world and probably has some, if not all of them in her beauty bag! They have earned their stripes as some of the best products around and today here are some of my favourites all together.

MAC lipstick in Ruby Woo

The ultimate in red lipstick. Every red lipstick lover knows that this is the holy grail of reds. We have tried but have never quite found one that tops this one.

Mac-Cosmetics-Lipstick-Ruby-Woo

 

MAC Mineralise Skin Finish

Another product from MAC, and I personally love the Medium Deep color and I use it as a bronzer and to contour.

Mac-Cosmetics-Mineralise-Skinfinish-47

Touche Elcat from YSL

This has long being a favorite in the fashion world, with its light reflecting pigments, illuminating even the darkest of circles. What’s more is that over the past year or so, YSL have added a number of other shades to accommodate different skin colors, which means more women can finally jump on this cult bandwagon.

Yves-Saint-Laurent-Touche-Éclat-57

Naked 2 Palette from Urban Decay

The popularity of this palette way surpassed that of its predecessor, the Naked Palette and I love the colors in it. Since its release, Urban Decay have added lots of products in the Naked range but with its mix of matte and shimmer shadows, the Naked 2 will always be #1 for me.

Urban-Decay-Naked-2-Eyeshadow-Palette-78

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow

The must have product to ensure your brows are on fleek. It took over instagram and for obvious reasons- this stuff is amazing!
Anastasia-Beverly-Hills-Dip-Brow-Pomade-1795

 

Clinique Chubby Sticks

The Chubby Stick leaves your lips super soft and with a hint of color, they are the perfect every day lip product, for a natural, no-effort-made look!

Clinique-Chubby-Stick-Intense-Moisturising-Lip-Colour-Balm-35

 

Nars Blush in Orgasm

When Kim Kardashian announced to the world, that this was her go-to blush, cult status was granted! The power of celebrity!Nars-Orgasm-Blush-42

 

 

What do you think of these products? Do you use any of them? Do you think they deserve their cult status among the world’s beauty junkies? Let me know or comment on instagram @thestylishworldoflou
