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, […]

Blush Tests.. Miu Miu’s Ombre Lips

Ombre lips: old news, sort of. They’ve been in every runway roundup for many moons, and in the age old way have trickled down onto the high street. Nyx and Topshop have specific kits for achieving a two toned lip. But they are typically two very similar shades: a lighter and a darker. Twice as interesting […]

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 […]

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 – 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 […]

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.

Look of the day – Elle Fanning at Paris Fashion Week

Suddenly the long winter is banished and London begins to see the sunshine – albeit scattered and sporadic. Over in Paris, Fashion Week, like the long, dark months behind us, has reached its expiration for another season. And it is there where a precocious young starlet draped in an outfit of sophisticated sunbeam charm is […]

Look of the day- -Rihanna rules at Paris Fashion Week

[Rihanna at Givenchy] [At Stella McCartney] Ok so the stockings at Dior were a terrible shout, but pushing that image far back into the depths of our memories aside, Rihanna has been killing it at Paris Fashion Week. The singer returned from her Aspen birthday break with a bang (and a bob), lending her support […]

Blush’s favourite looks from Paris Fashion Week

As soon as I saw Sienna Miller in this McQueen off-the shoulder look, I instantly thought look of the day. The Eliabetthan elegance of it all, given a decidedly modern spin in the shoulders that were on show, the undone hair and the barely there make-up, summed up this season and next. This season, particularly […]

Backstage Beauty – Blush loves Chloe

  The heat has finally abated, allowing us to enjoy the sun without fear of any make-up we do have on, heading south.   So now it actually stands a chance, where does one start?   Whenever I’m in doubt I go gallic, and in regard to this season, I’ve turned to Chloe.    Chloe […]

Paris Fashion Week’s Finest & SLP

Saint Laurent Paris S/S13 I was desperately hoping that Kate Moss was on the front row at Hedi Slimane’s first public show for Saint Laurent Paris as the entire collection was made for her.  Completely bewitched by the former head of Dior Homme’s first show, since his controversial name change for YSL, the show was a shameless […]
