Now that July is just around the corner (where has the year gone??!), one thing I'm really looking forward to is the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two. I was a little bit disappointed by the last film and thought the story built really slowly to quite an anticlimactic ending, but I put that down to the fact that I'm quite an impatient person in general! To celebrate the series drawing to an end, the July issue of US Vogue features Emma Watson, looking far more fashion forward than Hermione ever has, in an editorial shot by Mario Testino:

Emma Watson's New Day by Mario Testino, US Vogue July 2011.
I love the 20's feel of this shoot and the bold styling, particularly the hair and make-up. It will be interesting to see whether Emma recreates any of these looks on the publicity trail for the film next month- I'm sure she'll have her pick of designers after being named as ELLE's Style Icon back in February.

What do you think of Emma's looks for US Vogue? And are you looking forward to seeing the final Harry Potter film next month?

14.06.2011- Put a spell on you...

Tonight here in London it was the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One. I've already written about how excited I am for the release of the film next Friday, and, judging by the thousands of fans who braved the cold and wet in Leicester Square this evening, I'm not the only one. A lot of pictures are still being posted or are yet to come in, but here's a glimpse of my favourite looks from the red carpet so far:

Emma Watson, looking lovely in head to toe black. The crop is really growing on me.
Clémence Poésy, one of my many style crushes, looking effortlessly chic in navy lace. I also adore her clutch bag!
J.K Rowling in the third lace gown of the evening. Spotting a trend?
Bonnie Wright, keeping things minimal in black. I do love the red lipstick.
Rebecca Ferguson, the only X-Factor contestant who will ever feature on this blog (safe to say I am finding the whole show more than tedious!) I love her voice, her attitude and her style, and here she looks every inch the star. Team Rebecca.
Helena Bonham Carter, in what I think is a Vivienne Westwood gown. I do love her quirky style. 

What do you think of the red carpet looks from tonight's premiere? Any that stand out for you?

11.10.2010- Harry Potter and the magical red carpet

The penultimate instalment of Harry Potter, The Deathly Hallows: Part One is almost upon us, and it seems I'm not the only one getting excited about it. Emma Watson is the cover star of the December issue of Vogue, showing off her post-Hermione cropped hair and modelling designs by Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Valentino.

Shot by the fabulous Mario Testino, I think the shoot really captures a 1960's feel, which I put that down to the Twiggy-style crop. I can't wait to see what Emma wears to the Harry Potter premieres later on this month, no doubt a bit of Chanel or Burberry will find their way onto the red carpet. I've already booked my tickets to see Harry Potter on the day it comes out, I am literally counting down the days until the release!

What do you think of Emma's Vogue shoot? Will you be buying the issue? And are you as excited about Harry Potter as I am?

03.11.2010- It's a kind of magic...

This weekend, at Worthy Farm in Somerset, Glastonbury Festival celebrated its 40th birthday. I've got to be honest, I don't really see the appeal of festivals- I put this down to the fact that I hate camping and love showering, but there's no denying that Glastonbury is probably the biggest and best of the U.K's summer music events. Thanks to a weekend of glorious sunshine, the festival escaped the mud caked misery of recent years, and played host to some brilliant acts. For me the highlights (which I watched from the comfort of my sofa) included Florence and the Machine leading a chorus of Dog Days Are Over, Stevie Wonder belting out Superstition, Vampire Weekend performing Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa, possibly the most summery song ever, and The Doctor collaborating with Orbital. However, with A-listers and fashonistas descending on the farm garbed in designer outfits, Glastonbury has become as much about the fashion as the music, amidst outcries that the festival has become 'too middle class'. Here then, are some Glastonbury looks from over the weekend:

Emma Watson, sporting an Alexander Wang side plait, was seen wearing Yves saint Laurent on Day One of the festival, with denim cutoffs and wellies.

Lighter denims and more practical footwear for Day Two as temperatures soared, top marks for casual cool. Also, on the subject of Emma Watson, how fantastic is the trailer for The Deathly Hallows, I cannot wait until November!

Pixie Geldof, black, socks, boots- maybe she has a very high tolerance for the heat?

Alexa Chung, the new face of Lacoste, in a Lacoste shirt and denim cutoffs...I'm spotting a trend here!

Florence Welch, typically kooky but that's why I love her. 

Jameela Jamil, I adore this colour! 

Alison Mosshart, rock star cool. 

Ellie Goulding, in denim cutoffs (see!)

Shakira, wearing an Alexander McQueen vest.

Kate Nash, owww my eyes.

If they could guarantee good weather and a tent with an ensuite that didn't cost the earth, I might be tempted to give Glasto a go. Until then, I'm happy enough watching on telly with my feet up! 

What do you think? Are you an avid festival goer? What did you think of Glastonbury this year?

29.06.2010- Fash-ton-bury

Last night at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, classic British label Burberry made a triumphant return to London Fashion Week, in celebration of the event's 25th birthday. The show attracted the most high profile guest list seen at any London Fashion Week event in recent memory, with international fashion editors, Hollywood stars and politicians (who on earth invited Peter Mandelson?) descending on the capital for an evening spent in the company of Burberry's creative director Christopher Bailey and his latest stunning creations for the fashion house.






The front row of the show glittered as much as the shimmering silver coat Bailey sent down the runway:

 Face of Burberry's Autumn Winter 2009 advertising campaign, Emma Watson, wearing (of course), Burberry.

Victoria Beckham, wearing a beautiful dress from her own collection.

 The lovely Freida Pinto, wearing a dress from Burberry's Spring 2010 collection.

Mary Kate Olsen, looking effortlessly cool as always; I just adore the beetle brooch adorning her classic black winter coat.

One of my all time favourites, Liv Tyler, proving (if you didn't know by now) that a good boyfriend blazer is a girl's best friend and a must have piece for any wardrobe.

Anna Wintour, wearing Oscar de la Renta, complete with her trademark sunglasses and immaculately maintained hairstyle.

I can't wait to see this collection up close when it will arrive in stores next season, I have already made a pact that I will treat myself to a classic Burberry trench before I die/ when I can realistically afford it without bankrupting myself, whichever comes first!
