Blush Loves Osman Pre Fall 18

I don’t check up on as many fashion shows as I used to. Partly because over the last 3-4 years fashion’s mood has been pretty consistent. Nevertheless I’m always on the lookout for something fresh. Being an owner of a brand championing inclusivity in beauty, I experience frequent internal eye roll, at the many brands […]

Monday Blues? The Dior AW17 Show will give you that much-needed boost

We already know that Maria Grazia Chiuri, wants us all to ‘be Feminists’, but for her AW17 collection; instead of emblazoning this message across instagrammable t-shirts, this was cleverly sown into the fabric of her seemingly sombre – and all blue -collection. Her message could be felt in the black panther inspired leather berets, the small […]

2017: An Ode to Optimism

After a rocky 2016, it seems we are all committed to making 2017 a year of hope, togetherness and possibility. If 2016 was the apocalypse, then 2017 is the year we dust ourselves off, walk through the rubble and saunter off into the sunset. For SS17 it was surely no surprise then, that designers looked to […]

Get the Look – Ballerina Style

What woman hasn’t felt the pull of ballet at some stage in her life? The music, the stage, the exquisite combination of femininity and strength; all pulled together with pretty French names, blush pinks and feathery layers of tulle. I first watched Swan Lake on Easter Sunday when I was five or six. High on […]

Blush Guide to Patches, Pins & Personalisation

Denim, leather and satin outerwear are back and this time, they’re personal. Nothing quite makes a mark like an embroidered monogram or swathing signature and with the rise of iron and sew-on patches and badges, we’re pretty inspired to get crafty this summer. Seen everywhere from runways and street style to festivals and sporting events, […]

Get the Look – Victoriana

White lace and layers of chiffon are nothing new for spring/summer, but this season designers went full throttle, showcasing an array of diaphanous gowns and Victorian inspired sleeves. Whether you’ll be teaming strict starchy whites with high waisted denim, or going all out in ankle grazing white Mille feuille, Blush writer Josie Johnson, shows you […]

Get the Look – Smouldering Eyes at Versace

When it comes to sex, nobody sells it better than Versace. It’s full throttle and unabashed and that’s why we love it. For their Couture collection, that showed in Paris this week,  the Versace Atelier held no punches, with supermodels Joan Smalls, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Lara Stone and Adriana Lima walking alongside new heavyweights Gigi Hadid, Lineisy […]

Blush Loves: Skinny Scarves, Hair Ties and Chokers

My favourite season is upon us and I have to say I’m rather happy to see my 15 deniers again. Autumn/Winter, for me is the time you can have the most fun with your style. My Autumn style tends to be a twist on old classics. Silk blouses, skinny jeans and fur coats never fail […]

Trending: Curly bobs

Maybe it’s because it’s that dodgy time of year when it’s not quite cold yet, but it’s definitely windy and rainy enough to undo the most resistant of blow-dries, but everyone from the A-list at New York Fashion Week, to the office girls still having to de-robe on the tube, seems to be working the […]

The Top 8 AW15 Beauty Trends

There’s nothing like a beauty roundup, to get you ready for the season ahead. Unlike seasons before, Autumn/Winter ’15 was neither minimal nor extreme, but somewhere safely in between. As always kohl liner featured heavily, as did fashion’s penchant for purity – with perfectly prepped faces and groomed and full brows, taking centre stage once […]

Get the Look – Natural Beauty meets the Power Pout

So far for Spring Summer 15, there’s been a lot to love. Christopher Kane’s bare faced beauty and Givenchy’s mega wing are both ideal for the day, with the Balmain slick-back and Tom Ford’s sexpot bringing the glamour for the night. As it’s only June, I think it may be a little premature for beachy waves and sun-kissed skin; we’re kind of in […]

Get the Look – Tom Ford’s SS15 Sexpot

As my rather ‘proper’ retro bob begins its journey into a lob, I’ve been looking for a look to sex things up. It doesn’t get much sexier than Tom Ford’s SS15 woman, with her sequin nipple tasseled dress, shaggy hair and morning after makeup. Ford is always a safe bet when in search of something […]

Get the Look – Retro Modern

Perhaps I’m being inspired by my new sixties bob, or the AW14 shows of Paris, Milan and London have sub-consciously infiltrated my brain, but either way, I’m feeling very retro. And it seems its not just me. The High-St is playing host to more polo necks than I’ve ever seen; and what better to pair […]

The Diary

So this week has been a work week. Lots of press days but lots of fun. The week started with the launch of the Trilogy Christmas collection, which was a very chic take on Christmas as they opted for painterly prints as opposed to kitsch Xmas merch, meaning that you can stock up and hand […]

Get the look – Over the Knee Boots at #PFW

Ever since I saw last winter’s Celine ads, I have been desperate for a pair of over the knee boots. I spent hours, days even, scouring the internet and running to random stores on my lunch break; I even went to Dune, which was random and surprisingly ok. Anyway, after a good fortnight of ferocious […]

All hail the robe

  It all started back in September when Jeremy Scott showed his first collection for Moschino. The Spongebob and McDonalds themed pieces were the talk of the town and went on to cover many an IPhone, but it was the towels that caught our attention; a strange sight to see on a catwalk for a […]

The fash pack have once again descended on Paris, with bulging suitcases and summer tans, for Autumn/Winter‘s Couture Fashion Week. Screen legend Sophia Loren popped up, alongside new BFFs Valentino and Kim Kardashian. Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing used it as an opportunity to reveal his new Balmain army, which included in-demand newcomers Binx Walton and […]

Beauty Backstage – Chanel Couture AW15

Karl Lagerfeld has made us want trainers and backpacks and now he’s making us want Mohawks. For yesterday’s Chanel Couture show, Karl Lagerfeld and hairstylist Sam McKnight refashioned the hair of fashion’s top girls into 80s boyband stars, with slicked back sides and mega quiffs. Models Sam Rollinson, Ming Xi, Kendall Jenner and Malaika Firth […]

Blush loves…Christopher Kane & Alexander Wang Pre SS15

Christopher Kane and Alexander Wang have always shared a few things in common. Single syllable surnames aside, the two have risen through the ranks at much the same speed and time, they both boast loyal followings thanks to their relentless originality and their ability to translate the mood of the street as opposed to reinventing […]

Dior Cruise ’15- Rihanna & Olivia Palermo – Look of the day

  Yesterday saw the first Cruise show of the season, staged by Dior. The show was an extravagant start to the season as attendees were whisked from Brooklyn in a Dior branded cruise ship (very fitting). The show itself was an extension of the seasons before with 1940s Dior style blazers reworked, painterly prints, and […]

Beauty Backstage – Pigtails and Liner @ Marc by Marc Jacobs – A/W ’14

In a collection centred around revolution, it came as no surprise that Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley’s first show for Marc by Marc Jacobs, would feature heavy eyeliner. Nothing screams rebellion quite like heavily kohl-rimmed eyes. One is instantly transported back to teenage days when panda-eyes prevailed. Though rebellion is not quite revolution, it is […]
