Get the Look – Rihanna Does Pretty at The Grammys

Rihanna stunned on the red carpet at last week’s Grammys and it wasn’t just due to her vintage rose giambattista valli couture gown. The Bajan superstar has been killing it recently with her creative looks: the Da Brat style braids and brown beige lipstick for the I-D cover and the swept back hair and metallic […]

Blush’s Favourite Fashion & Beauty Looks from 2014

2014 has been a crazy year. In the beauty world we got to grips with make-up again after seasons of fuss free hair and make-up barely there. This year was all about the bronze eye, teenage kohl and layering up on lashes. On the streets seemingly every star was spotted in their monogrammed Burberry blanket […]

Blush Loves – Holiday Hairstyles

It’s holiday season. Which means Balls, dinners, work parties and New Year, all requiring you to elevate your beauty look from the standard low ponytail/bobble hat vibe you’ve adopted since the weather became too ridiculous to give a damn. We’ve hunted down our favourite (achievable) hair looks from our favourite girls to hopefully inspire this […]

Get the Look – Rihanna’s Dark Red Lipstick

Rihanna stunned last week, top to toe in Altuzurra SS15 pink gingham, but it was her uber dark red lips that caught our attention. I’ve been raving about berry lips since I got my hands on Topshop’s Beguiled years ago and it seems that every winter without fail we fall for the mysterious hue. Perhaps […]

Look of the day – Rihanna

Dinner is always a tricky beast to master. LBD- classic, easy, red dress (for real va va voom) or jeans and a nice chiffon shirt for a ‘oh this old thing’ French vibe; all standard and fail safe options, but fuschia, that’s pretty bold. Obviously it had to be Rihanna popping out to dinner, in […]

Look of the day – Chanel Iman, Blake Lively, Rihanna and Naomi at the CFDA Awards

The CFDA Awards took place last night and we were all very excited to see what ‘Fashion Icon’ award recipient Rihanna, was going to wear. The superstar didn’t disappoint, harking back to an old age of glamour in a champagne coloured, sheer, embellished, Adam Selman halter gown, matching beaded headscarf and nude fur stole. Rih […]

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 […]

Best Dressed at The Met Ball 2014

The 2014 Met Ball was a return to glory. After the A-list struggled to get to grips with last year’s Punk theme, this year’s Charles James inspired-dress code was easy, it was all about gowns. The models did seem to take the crown this year. Naomi Campbell was out in Givenchy, Lily Donaldson in a […]

Look of the day – Rita Ora

On first encountering Rita Ora, I felt thoroughly bedraggled by a gale-force embarrassment. If she flickered even for a second on a television screen near me, I would reach for the remote and speedily punch in random numbers, not caring to which channel these numbers would take me – ITV 3, Bloomberg, XXX Mums. It did not matter. I could not bare the reddening of the face […]

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 […]

The Best of The Grammys 2014

The 2014 Grammys were as always, a raucous affair. Beyonce and Jay-Z opened the show with their duet Drunk in Love, a performance as equally gushy and raunchy as their black and white beach video.  Katy Perry wore a musical-note chiffon Valentino gown straight off the couture runway and Pharrell wore an exceedingly tall hat.  Both Clive Davis […]

Campaign Trailing – Rihanna for Balmain & Burberry’s Bright Young Things

Today saw the launch of Spring/Summer 14’s most exciting campaigns yet. In the first Rihanna became the face for Balmain, music to the ears of Creative Director Olivier Rousteing, who said he couldn’t be happier that the woman who inspires his creations helped bring them to life. The graphic tiled background struck the perfect balance […]

Blush’s favourite looks from NYFW

As London Fashion Week kicks off today, Blush looks back at New York Fashion Week and remembers the sartorial highlights, from Harley Viera-Newton‘s top-to-toe pink Michael Kors ensemble to Karlie Kloss sporting a swept-back bun with her negligee, NYC was definitely giving London a run for it’s money.

Rihanna, On-stage in Monte Carlo, last night When three very different women are all spotted in a white dress on the same day, you know you’re onto a winner.  Although 40s tea-dresses, as seen at Bottega Veneta, and Marc Jacobs‘ super stripes and checkerboard checks, were hotly tipped to take the summer by storm, the […]

Couture Eye Candy – Elie Saab

Beauty isn’t always about what you put on your face or slather onto your body, sometimes beauty is simply the clothes you put on your back. Couture will remain relevant as it continues to remind us that though every day we get dressed, there are days when we really must dress ourselves; days when you have to […]

I absolutely love Mad Men, so I am slightly biased whenever I see one of the show’s stars on the Red Carpet. Fortunately Jessica Pare’s recent outing in Roksanda Illincic at the Mad Men event, at The Paley Centre in New York last night, makes it easy to pretend it’s nothing to do with the […]
