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.

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?

OOTD: One Spring Day

I am loving the cool spring weather at the moment. The weather is no longer painfully cold, so my bare legs are out for as long as possible. How are you enjoying spring? Has spring sprung where you are at?

 

 

I love wearing dresses in the spring/summer months, I guess that is due to the fact that I have been stuck in heavy coats, jeans and tights all through winter. I find dresses comfortable and easy to style.

Take this black dress I have on for example; all I had to do was to throw on a few accessories and I was good to go. That is the beauty of a little black dress, it never goes out of style, and it is dead easy to dress up.

 

 

This black embroidery smock dress is a new wardrobe addition; I got it some few weeks ago. I love the floral embroidery detail a lot. It is a perfect piece, and it is great for transitioning from winter to spring (just pop on a blazer and a pair of tights if you need one), and from day-to-night (with a change of accessories).

 

 

“I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” -Michael Kors.

I saw this quote online some days ago and it hit the nail on the head, with regards to the major role accessories play in an overall look. I think accessories are very important; they determine how good or bad an outfit would turn out, so I like to pay my accessories special attention, even more than my pieces.
