Kate Moss Covers British Vogue April 2017

British Vogue’s contributing editor – Kate Moss, is the cover girl for  British Vogue April 2017, and she looks amazing as always. This stunning cover was captured by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot, and I think they did a fantastic job.

This is Kate Moss’ 38th Vogue cover, and she slayed it completely. The touch of red takes the cover to a whole new level!

 

 

I have seen Kate Moss on more magazine covers than I can remember, but this Vogue cover right here, is the best I have seen in a long time. She looks great, everything about the cover is spot on; from her makeup to her hair, she nailed it!

Moss is known to share a little too much in her interviews, so I am looking forward to reading this issue.

Here are some excerpts from the interview –

 

On launching her Kate Moss Modelling Agency

“As a model I am prepared to stand in a bikini at the end of an ice glacier when it’s minus 30, because that is what the client has booked me to do and that’s the job,” she explained of launching the agency, which she has been building since last September. “So, as I get older, it seemed like the natural thing to do was to take responsibility for my choices both as a model and with the branding I put my name to.”

“I don’t want a young girl to feel bad if she has to wait around,” Moss said. “I was that person with Steven Meisel, even though I was the face of CK at the time. I had to sit around for days. It can be really hard. I’m maternal; I don’t want the girls to feel insecure.”

 

I didn’t even know she had her own modelling agency until now. Good for her!

This issue sounds like a good read. I will be looking out for it.

Celebrity Wedding Dresses to Remember

I remember shopping around for my wedding dress many years ago; it was a fabulous experience. It didn’t take me too long to decide on a dress. I knew exactly what I wanted, and what bridal accessories I needed, and once I wore the dress, I knew it was the one.

Most wedding dresses, and weddings in general tend to cost a fortune. Just take a look at this well researched infographic, thanks to JJ Suspenders. This infographic explains the average wedding costs, so it is great a more great visual explanation, for those who are not aware.

This infographic is based on the cost of products and services in the US, but is also very similar to what we have here in the UK and most parts of the world. Weddings are generally expensive, and a big chunk of a wedding budget is spent on the wedding dress.

The good thing about shopping for wedding dresses is that there are so many options available. And we can also take inspiration from many celebrity brides and recreate more affordable alternatives.

Here are 3 celebrity wedding dresses that caught my eye –

Solange

I remember doing a double take when I first spotted this wedding dress. Solange broke the internet with this Humberto Leon for Kenzo floor-length gown with an attached cape, and it is so easy to see why. I don’t see anyone else pulling this look like Solange. This wedding dress is so her, it suits her style and personality, I guess that is why she nailed the look so effortlessly.

Ciara

Ciara slayed it in this Roberto Cavalli dress designed by Peter Dundas. I love the style of the wedding dress; the detailing is superb, and it looks amazing on her.

This is obviously a very expensive dress, but I am sure there are similar less pricey alternatives for brides to be.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian also broke the internet with this stunning Haute Couture Givenchy. This dress is the TRUTH! It is great for those with a bit of curves; it will show off your figure in all the right places. I love it on her; she looked stunning.

What are your thoughts on the infographic? What do you think of these wedding dresses? Which is your favourite and why?

Spring Fashion Trends

Spring is here and just as every season comes with its temperature, it also comes with its fashion and style trends. So here is your ‘heads up post’, thank me later.

It is quite exciting to find out how far different items of clothing can evolve into something new, different, bold and spectacular. This spring is no exception.

So far, the spring fashion trends have shown a new height to creativity, there is a burst of colour, assortments of pattern and cuts.

For all the fashion conscious ones among us, some of the combinations you will see in this article may not come as much of a surprise, as some of the trends have showed up in one form or another in 2016. But of course, 2017 will come with its own kind of twists.

Here are some of the fashion trends you should look out for this spring.

  1. Stylish stripes

It seems like we’re going to be seeing a heavy dose of stripes this spring. The stripes make a great fashion statement especially when the stripes are moving in other directions other than the conventional horizontal or vertical stripes. This stripe trend also fits right into summer.

  1. Shoulders that make a statement

It is amazing to see how far fashion designers can go with what they can do in enhancing the shoulders. From off-shoulders and shoulder cuts to asymmetrical designs that fall over the shoulder and bold shoulders, there is hardly a style that has not been tried. And this spring, the shoulder trend is a single shoulder cut, so look around for that if you like.

  1. Bright cheerful colours

Spring has always been known to be a cheerful season. So seeing bright colours as part of the 2017 spring fashion trend was not surprising. Vibrant colours like yellow, and soft pastel colours like pink, seem to be some of the favourites this spring.

Bright colours have always made a statement and work great in the spring.

  1. Flashback to the 80’s

The iconic 80’s fashion is one that can never grow old. The 80’s outfits have been able to touch all the details that give definition to every piece. Floral patterns are bold against the backdrop of the bright spring vibes. Aside from the patterns, the interesting cuts that show of some skin have made its way to a good number of ensembles.

What are your thoughts on these spring fashion trends? Will you be rocking any of them?
