A bit late today but slowly getting back on track with my blogging schedule! I am not overly convinced about the peplum trend but you have to love this amazing Victoria Beckham(VB) design that Elle Macpherson is wearing. The quintessential glamour-goddess strutting her stuff! VB definitely seems to have mastered the art of identifying what flatters the feminine form. I am loving this structured grey dress, peplum and all, on Elle Macpherson – super chic and super sexy!

Fashion Friday is all about glitz, glamour and the red carpet! Featuring my favourite Red Carpet look from this years SAG Awards and the gorgeous Naomi Watts! Looking absolutely radiant in a ornately beaded Marchesa gown, diamond Fabergé earrings and glittery box clutch, Naomi typifies old-world Hollywood glamour. She adds just a few punches of colour to her ice-white look, with a bright ruby lip, an emerald-green mani and topped off with a chunky emerald ring, also by Fabergé. Not to forget her beautifully styled golden locks! STUNNING!
Have a fabulous Fashion Friday!

The 2013 Red Carpet did not disappoint with plunging necklines, low-backs and leg revealing side slits being the order of the day! One of favourites was Jessica Alba(yet again) in a gorgeous soft coral Oscar de la Renta gown, as I have said before she looks great in most anything!
Both Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez, who are well known for their ability to shock with body-baring fashion looked amazing! Many of the dresses were more understated and elegant. Although colour is still very popular, there was a big trend of white or off-white gowns, with lots of shimmer and texture.
There were many more amazing gowns but these are my favourites!

It tis the season to be merry and the time of year end functions and Christmas parties galore! Well, with this in mind, I thought for Fashion Friday this week I would explore an alternative to the LBD, not everyone likes to wear a dress and black trousers can be such an elegant alternative.
Team a fitted pair of black or charcoal cigar pants with a sequined vest and a fitted black jacket and you can create a look fit for any occasion. Tuxedo jackets are super trendy at the moment and so versatile. You can wear them as part of a smart evening ensemble or with a pair of jeans and a T during the day for a more casual effect. An alternative to a jacket paired with black trousers, is to wear a bustier or tunic over your trousers, as seen in the image above of Emma Watson. A peplum top would also add a bit of flirty fun to a pair of tailored trousers.
As with all outfits accessories are so important to complete your look, you can keep it simple and opt for a black sequined clutch or go for something a bit more funky in a bright or neon colour. Shoes can also add a bit more piazza to your whole look, there is nothing wrong with a bit of bling or if you want to tone your whole look down nude heels would be perfect too.
To create a similar look you can shop Style36.co.za or Zando on-line for similar jackets and trousers or outlets such as Mango, Country Road or Zara have a wonderful ranges.

My look of the week, chosen by one of my fashion interns, features the lovely Emma Watson. Looking super chic in her monochromatic ensemble, with über skinny black jeans and a structured white jacket. This is a style that I am particularly partial to myself. It is a very versatile look that can easily translate from a smart day look to a sexy evening outfit with the help of different accessories. You can tone this look down during the day by swopping the wedges for cute black pumps.
My favourite part of the outfit has to be her gorgeous Tom Ford wedge heels, the chunky chain detail around the ankle is bang on trend and peep-toes are also rather big this season.
