You may know from reading my blog, that I am going to a wedding of one of my best friends soon and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s in less than three weeks now and I think about it a lot, planning my outfit, which is nearly ready, and now I’ve turned my attention to hair. My dress is asymmetric one-shouldered, so I’m looking at side buns and ponytails. Whether you’re going to a wedding or any summer soiree, I think a side ponytail looks super girly and cute and suits everyone.
Upon this I have to admit a huge hair envy of Blake Lively. Up or down, her hair always looks gorgeous. For dressier occasions you can’t beat sparkly accessories like hair bands or adding braids. Charlize Theron rocked with her Alice band at this year’s Oscars.
I really can’t wait to be all done up and share my look with you. Not long to go down.
Have a stylish day.
Today’s style post is not dedicated to any individual but to TV programmes. How many of us watch a programme mostly to see the outfits the characters wear. For me the example would be MTV’s The City and The Hills. That’s where I discovered one of my style icons Olivia Palermo. Millions of women watched Sex and the City not only for the great conversations between the four awesome New Yorkers and to see their lives unfold, but their clothes played a big part too. It put the stylist Patricia Field on radar and Carrie Bradshaw’s outfits were copied endlessly. Many got upset when the show finished and probably the same amount rushed to the cinema to see the Sex and The City Movie 1 and 2. Both out on DVD now have a special place in my DVD collection as well as the whole series of course.
But since then the clever people in Hollywood we love our fashionable series and keep feeding us with shows like Gossip Girl and the amazing BBC programme Mad Men. The great outfits help to make stars out of its characters off screen as well. Blake Lively is the new face of Chanel, January Jones became a face of Versace and the list would go on. They all cover endless amounts of fashion mags. Check out stunning Christina Hendricks on November’s issue of American Harper’s Bazaar here.
Let’s admit it. We love it. If shows with sometimes not so great plot lines are our guilty pleasure just to watch the latest fashion, than it’s not the end of the world. I’d rather watch Gossip girl than some blood and fights fuelled movie. And as for Mad Men, it’s got great reviews and is very well written. So please TV gods keep the fashion feast coming, we’ll never have enough.
Have a stylish day.
