Game of Thrones Star Is The New Face Of Karen Millen

Talk about the epitome of fashion news and the latest celebrity gossip! Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, (aka Sansa Stark) will be the face of Karen Millen’s 2015 Autumn/Winter launch. I’ve just had a sneak peak at the fashion (which I’ll share) and campaign mini movie entitled The Journey shot by Photographer and director Glen Luchford.

The campaign centers around Turner. She’s supported by an entourage of handpicked British beauties, Lara Mullen, Rosie Tapner and Brogan Loftus. These young, vivacious women have been exquisitely styled by Katy England who breathes life into the entire collection.

Presented is an eclectic mixture of high-low, trend-led, London inspired pieces. These are complimented with some stunning seasonal wardrobe staples. Seriously the handbags and heeled boots are to die for! As always their objective is to design and create effortless fashion for modern intelligent, urban woman. That sounds very much like a majority of our readers?!

There’s an opulent mixture of day, night, casual, office and evening ware. KM has used a variety of fabrics in plain and feminine patterns, creating perfectly contoured shirts, tops, jeans and elegant skirts. There’s also a selection of tailored pants and an array of coats and jackets available in long and short varieties. To complete the AW15 collection faux furs and flowing scarfs have been included to ward off the winter chills. Plus they haven’t forgotten their iconic bikers jacket. So, basically all the must have’s for a stylish Autumn / Winter wardrobe have been included.

The KM brand ensures exceptional quality with first class craftsmanship. Directed by CCO Gemma Metheringham each piece is designed, cut and finished in KM’s design studio. These remain reflective of KM’s origin which remains based in Shoreditch London. The brand also dedicates support to emerging fashion talent with their graduate protégé scheme. Participants receive valuable experience and in return KM inspires innovation by encouraging new industry professionals.

Speaking of emerging talent and industry professionals lets get back to the celebrity goss! Turner was cast for the role of Sansa Stark at age 13 after being handpicked from her school. She remains with Game of Thrones as it enters it’s fifth season. The promo has just been released and fans can’t wait until it airs in the US on April 12th. Granted Turner’s had a very different role with KM. In fact it’s probably as far from Winterfell and Kings landing entire as you can possibly get! Quite a transformation isn’t it!

As well as being the face of KM, Turner’s been a very busy young lady since Game of Thrones aired last season. She’s rapidly made a leap from small to large screen. She’s recently concluded an action comedy called Barley Lethal with Hailee Steinfeld, Jessica Alba and Samuel L. Jackson. Plus she scored a lead role in an independent film called Alone with Mark Kassen and Ray Liotta.

She’s certainly been mixing it up with some film favorites there. No wonder she’s recently been signed to play Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse. Turner will act along side one film’s hottest honeys; Channing Tatum and of course Australia’s favorite X-Man, Hugh Jackman will be there. The film is currently in pre-production and is due for release in 2016. Looks like this busy talented young beauty is one up and coming celebrity to keep an eye on!

Celebrity Style: Best Coats For Autumn/Winter ’14

Bikini-clad on the beach or lighting up the red carpet on awards night, our favourite celebrities never fail to impress. But it takes some rare style savvy to have the same show-stopping effect when autumn arrives and we trade fashion for function. From duffle coats to trench coats, here are five celeb-worthy coats for less.

Kate Middleton

Royal fashion icon, Kate Middleton is a symbol of delicate femininity in any ensemble and any season. The duchess’s prim and proper Max Mara winter coat is no exception. Her charming funnel-neck coat spotted on a trip to Guildhall, England brightens those bleak winter days in a soft beige. The thin bow belt provides an ever-do-slight girly accent that is totally Kate. Find a similar style for a fraction of the cost with this above-the-knee ivory number and darling Kate Spade belt.

Jennifer Lawrence

The second youngest Oscar winner for Best Actress is making waves as a trendsetter as well. Jennifer Lawrence has been turning heads not only on the red carpet in sophisticated evening wear but on the bust streets of NYC in cute and clever outerwear. Just skimming the knees, her collared camel coat proved anything but ordinary. The flattering seams allow for something so warm to actually show off her figure while a parade of gold buttons add just a little extra flair. We’ve found a comparable tailored wool trench here for a steal to get a look that’s undeniably J-Law-worthy.

Mila Kunis

When she’s not raising eyebrows with breaking engagement news, this sultry star and newlywed is attracting attention with her bold fashion choices. An updated, cold-weather little red riding hood, Mila is casual and comfortable in a short, fur-lined winter coat in a bright cheery, cherry red. Equipped with Alpine-style toggles and faux fur pom poms the look is adorable, sporty, and suited for the slopes or some Saturday afternoon window shopping. Unleash your inner snow-bunny with this BCBG interpretation duffle coat.

Lily Allen

UK chart topper, Lily Allen is anything but subtle from her powerful lyrics, to in-your-face music videos, down to her memorable fashion choices. She walked away from the NME Awards this February winning the title for “Best Solo Artist” but she may have also gained some notoriety for her outrageous blue and turquoise striped fur jacket. Turn the fun up on your night out with this little touch of Lily.

Rachel Bilson

America’s sweetheart Rachel Bilson, is the poster child for classic styles and clean lines. She even manages to make this cold-weather favourite, the puffer jacket, do the impossible: actually look chic. By choosing a dark colour, such as this pure liquorice black, small quilted pockets, and a stream-lined silhouette, Rachel maintains an appearance that is polished and professional while staying nice and toasty when the mercury begins to drop. Adding a belt and opting for a detachable hood also help avoid looking like a marshmallow. Get your refined twist on the puffer jacket for a fraction of the cost.
