Jeans du Jour

Celebrities wearing Current Elliot Jeans

Every year there are is a brand of jeans that become like the Holy Grail of denim; think 7 for all Mankind or True Religion. This year’s jean-brand ‘lust-have’, however, is Current/Elliott (C/E); their Loved Destroyed jeans have been spotted on the shapely legs of supremely stylish A-Listers like, Rihanna, SJP, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Beckinsale, Megan Fox and Katie Holmes… the list goes on.

The brand was only started a year ago by two LA stylists but something about their soft-as-butter jeans has made them a total hit with Hollywood’s hottest. What amazes me is that not only have some the US’s most stylish stars been seen wearing C/E’s  but that all those ladies have incredibly diverse looks. From Rihanna’s high fashion punk vibe to Katie Holmes true classic chic, the jeans look awesome on all of them. The AW09 collection is just as rocking, my absolute faves are these:

Current Elliott AW09 collection: L-R The Skinny Night Wash Shredded €295. The Skinny Brass Stud Wash €365. The crop skinny night wash €260. All jean prices are from BT2, Grafton Street.

Get the look for less… here is a blog on how to rip and distress jeans, also M&J Trimmings do studs that would work amazingly to get the C/E look if  you apply them to jeans their website is, just type in ‘Nailheads’ to their seach engine.

Beyond the Fringe-ing

For the last season or so celebs from London to Hollywood have been spotted dressed down with slouchy suede fringe bag over their shoulders. From Kate Moss to Blake Lively to Kate Hudson, they all seem to love wearing the tribal-trend, fringed bag. With the Hollywood contingent preferring to carry the gorgeous JJ Winters suede fring bag.

Celebs with Fringe BagsClockwise from left: Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Hudson, Blake Lively, Ashley Tisdale and Kate Moss all with gorgeous fringe bags.

I love the way that fringing both softens an outfit and gives it an edge, it moves beautifully as you walk and this Warehouse one is made of such soft leather. This is why today as I was wandering through Dundrum Town Centre looking at the dozens of random sales signs I had to grab it.

Wearhouse soft Leather Eyelet & Fringe Cross-body bagAt €59 it isn’t the cheapest bag in the world but it is a perfect accessory for all my new summer outfits, the strap is adjustable so I’ll be wearing it long and cross-body to keep my shades and sunscreen in!


Best Dressed on the MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet

This Years MTV Movie Awards saw the cream of Hollywood’s starlets turned out in their best cocktail dresses to show the world that they are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the style stakes. Apart from Sacha Baron Cohen’s alter-ego Bruno ‘accidentally’ bum-in-face-ing Eminem, the MTV awards were pretty darn tasteful. Here are a few of my faves from the red carpet…

Leighton Meester went full–on sexy in this Emilio De La Morena sheer dress and gave it some edge with these Brian Atwood purple suede heels – absolutely my fave outfit of the night

Ashley Tisdale in a deep purple Elise Overland dress with a gorgeous studded belt oversize clutch and bling cuff. I am lusting after those shoes too!

Lauren Conrad does simple chic in this structured ruffle Moschino dress I love that her nails and lips are dressy but her hair is too casual. I would have liked to have seen a big, loose bun, low and to one side instead.

Vanessa Hudgens in a golden maxi, Max Azria dress the colour looks amazing with her dark bo-ho tresses and I love the tribal heels

Sienna Miller gets on the luxe sequins trend in this green, backless Twenty8Twelve dress. I’m delighted that she has managed to move on from her trademark boho look and proved her style-worth with a totally different look.

Vanessa Hudgens Wedges

Vanessa Hudgens is showing the world her fashion credentials and is fast becoming one of the most stylish young stars in Hollywood. Her look is a perfect mix of on-trend chic and down to earth style, enabling her to look as good in jeans as she does in red-carpet gowns. Speaking of jeans, VH teams a zip-ankle ripped-denim pair with these fabulous gladiator Luella wedges by Cynthia Vincent while out at a game recently,

If you can’t afford the Cynthia Vincent pair (€290) then, as always, the high street has something similar. Aldo have these cork soled ones for €75:

Update on Nude Trend

I just have to make mention of the two new entries into the stylish celebs arena that have really rocked the SS09 nude / blush trend…

Katy Perry looked amazing and proved that she is a style force to be reckoned with at this years Grammy Awards in this beautiful Basil Soda Gown.

Vanessa Hudgens kept it short and sweet and gives it some edge with fierce shoes at the 17 Again movie premier in a gorgeous Zac Posen dress.

This nude / pink / peach trend is so pretty and feminine and loads of high street stores are giving us their versions to get the look. I really like this Topshop one, it has the similar ruffled chiffon detailing and the finish the look I would add this wide black leather belt from House of Fraser but you could leave the black trim showing around the waist instead.

Summer Hat Solutions

The best thing about summer fashion is hats. They either complete or completely change a outfit. One of the most versatile hats is the Trilby or Fedora. The difference being the width of the brim which generally smaller on a trilby and the back of the brim is more upturned. You can wear them with everything from your bikini on the beach or with wellies at a festival, with your jeans for strolling around town and by accessorising with flowers you can even wear it for a formal occasion. Each season the list of celebs wearing the Trilby/Fedora gets longer and the trend is still going strong.

There are plenty of styles available on the high street too,


Clockwise from left: CA4LA Straw Trilby with crooked crown £85,, Turquoise Trilby Topshop approx. €30, Diesel felt Tilby with badge £59, White Fedora with brown buckle POA Philip Treacy, Helene Berman white Trilby with black silk flowers £34,, Zigzag Trilby approx. €30 Topshop.

I love the Philip Treacy one but I think I’ll be settling for the super pretty Helene Berman one!
