Celebrity Style: Whitney Port

Fashion designer, reality TV star, actress and sometimes-model Whitney Port is one of our go-to fashionistas for celebrity style inspiration. Her pulled-together image, chic style, and perfectly groomed hair and makeup makes her a true fashion icon. But Port’s celebrity style isn’t just for those with celebrity-sized wallets. We walk you through five of Whitney’s most iconic looks.

Pretty Patterns

 

Whitney has a whimsical, slightly boho style that puts patterns at center stage. She likes to mix up contrasting patterns for an attention-grabbing outfit, but for relaxed days keeps it streamlined in a head-to-tie pattern, perfect for spring maxi dresses.

Tailored Shorts

Another mainstay of Whitney’s celebrity style is her tailored short obsession. Port is frequently seen sporting a range of hues, cuts, and fabrics. One thing her shorts always have in common? A perfect, not-too-tight cut that always says ‘classy’ instead of ‘sleazy.’

Boyfriend Jeans

whitney port, fashion icons, celebrity, style, celebrity fashion, fashion icon

 

One of Whitney’s closet staples is a pair of worn-in, well-loved boyfriend jeans. Whitney clearly has several pairs in her wardrobe, ranging from fitted to baggy. She often pairs them with a chic stiletto, tank top and blazer, which goes a long way in polishing off this grungy garment.

Blazers

Tailored blazers are another must-have in Whitney’s wardrobe — she styles them over loose dresses for formal events, but also dresses them down with tailored trousers or flowy shorts for day-time looks.

Edgy Leather Jackets

Finally, one of Whitney’s most iconic wardrobe essentials is a great leather jacket. Be it brown or black, bomber or motorcycle, Whitney always knows how to work the look, even on the red carpet with olive silk pants and a cami.

Get Kate Moss’ Celebrity Style For Less

We’re still obsessed with Kate Moss’ celebrity style. Anytime we get into a fashion rut, we just browse through the Kate Moss fashion archives to find a look that’s fresh, a new way of wearing a wardrobe staple, or accessorising a boring outfit. After 26 years’ modelling, she remains a fashion icon with no indication of slowing down. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and see how you can recreate La Moss’ celebrity style for less.

The leopard print coat
One of Moss’ most iconic looks, her leopard print coat has been a favourite over the years – she even wore it on her recent 40th birthday celebrations. Whether you pair it with jeans and a fitted jumper, or over a little black dress, Moss has made this a wardrobe staple.

Get the look for less: Topshop Faux Fur Animal Print Coat, $168.  

katemosskimono

The kimono jacket
We love the addition of a floral kimono jacket to a pair of dark denim skinny jeans and basic singlet top. Topped off with layered necklaces and olive ankle boots makes the look completely unique.

Get the look for less: Dark Base Floral Tassel Kimono, $24.99.

katemossblack

The tailored blazer
Moss adds sexiness and elegance to an all-black outfit. The skin-tight leather pants and tailored blazer with satin lapels, with sheer chemise underneath, is a vampish take on the classic suit. It would be easy to over-accesorise, but Moss keeps it simple and still a statement with her hair pulled back, black satin clutch and pointed stilettos.

Get the look for lessBardot Bling Blazer, $80, and Anarchy Leggings, $99.95.

katemossjeans

The wide leg jeans
She might have been responsible for ushering in the skinny jean trend, but in typical Moss fashion, she’ll often broke from the pack choosing this more relaxed bohemian chic look. Here she pairs a simple boat neck t-shirt with wide leg jeans, thick belt, open-toe sands and a simple purse. Let your hair down and enjoy the sunshine with this carefree look. Get the look for less: LTB Roxy Jean, $74.95 and Cotton On Desire Fleck T-Shirt, $14.95.

katemossgreendress

The chiffon dress
Moss is never afraid to take fashion risks, and always pulls it off. On paper, it might sound like an emerald green chiffon dress would not pair well with a fitted leather jacket, but on Moss, it looks incredible. Next time you wear a feminine evening dress, take inspiration from Moss and pair it with a sleek biker jacket and bold accessories.

Olivia Palermo’s Celebrity Style

We have serious fashion envy every time we see Olivia Palermo hit the streets. And with New York Fashion Week just around the corner, we’ve decided to take a look at this uptown it-girl’s best celebrity style looks from classic skinny jeans and blazers, to – and how you can steal her style for less.   

Statement jewellery
Olivia is a huge fan of statement jewellery – famous for her chunky necklaces bringing attention to her beautiful neck. But make sure you balance the outfit – a statement necklace only works if you’re wearing a simple tee, jumper or dress underneath to make it pop. Luckily there is fantastic costume jewellery at Sportsgirl and Topshop that look just as glam as Olivia’s.

oliviapalermo

Tailored blazer
Olivia loves finishing off an outfit with a blazer, whether it’s a floral summer dress or skinny jeans and a tee. It gives all her outfits that elegant and classy finish. Look for a basic fitted tailored blazer in black or white for less at Zara or Mango.

oliviapalermo2

Skinny jeans
Olivia wears skinny jeans to every occasion: a day in the city, fashion week, parties, or at nights out with her gorgeous German supermodel-fiancé Johannes Huebl. Look for a pair of skinny jeans that are not too low on the waist and comfortable. Jeggings are a great alternative too.

oliviapalermo4

White shirt
Olivia has taken the classic white shirt and reimagined it – whether she’s wearing it with jeans, shorts, tucked into maxi skirts or with a knee-length skirt, it always looks fresh and feminine. Add some bright statement jewellery and a colourful bag to complete the look. We love white shirtswith a little lycra stretch for a great fit (check out Witchery and David Lawrence), or borrow you’re boyfriend’s.

oliviapalermo5

LBD
The Little Black Dress is a wardrobe staple, and to get one in true Olivia-style, think Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina – elegant, chic and timeless. Accessorise with simple jewellery and your favourite heels. Portmans and Seduce are a great place to pick up an LBD without the designer price tag.

oliviapalermo7

Loafers
Olivia is tiny so is often in sky-high heels, but even fashionistas need to be comfortable every now and then. And who said you can’t look stylish in flats? Swap your everyday ballerinas for loafers, which look fab with jeans, a relaxed shirt and sunglasses.

oliviapalermo6

Sunglasses
Every it-girl knows sunglasses are your best friend when out and about. Olivia often steps out in big-oversizes sunglasses to frame her heart-shapred face. Splurge on Dior or Tom Ford sunglasses – Olivia’s favourite labels for shades – an investment you’ll wear for years.

How to Get Celebrity Style For Less

Whether it’s Nicole Richie’s boho chic you covet or Alexa Chung’s street style you want to steal, forget the designer price tag – we show you how to get the hottest celebrity style for less, all under $60.

Emma Watson’s animal print romper and floppy hat
Emma Watson looked so adorable in her animal print romper at Coachella last year. No need to hire a stylist to have amazing celebrity style. Take inspiration from Emma and accessorise your romper with a floppy hat, cross body bag, chunky gold belt and vintage necklace.
Get the look for lessGuess Abstract Dye Romper ($49.97) and Princess Poly Endless Sun Hat ($50).

michellewilliams

Michelle Williams’ preppy printed pants
She might stay out of the spotlight, but Michelle Williams is always on top of the celebrity style game when she’s running errands on the streets of NYC. Michelle tends to go for a preppy-chic look and one of our favourites is her printed cropped pants paired with a chambray shirt, basic navy cardigan and dark studded loafers for an outfit that is casual, yet cool.
Get the look for less: We love Glassons Daisy Flower Printed Pants ($29.99) and Cotton On Giselle Cotton Shirt ($29.95).
alexachungstyle

Alexa Chung’s printed skirt
Alexa Chung is the princess of casual-chic street style, knowing just how to update unique vintage finds with the latest trends. We love how she’s combined a bold vintage print skirt with a simple grey jumper with a preppy white collar. No need for heels here – Alexa updates her usual ballerinas with black bow flats for a fun style that’s perfect for brunch with friends.
Get the look for less: Goddess Print A-Line Midi Skirt ($59.97).

rosiehw

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s leather pants and striped tee
While we won’t be flying in leather pants anytime soon (hard to squeeze in and out of economy seats in skin-tight leathers), we can still take inspiration from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley chic airport style. On a recent trip, the British babe rocked sleek leather pants and a striped tee for a casual style that was offset by brown suede heels. Although the outfit looked too casual for the runway, it was truly complete with the burgundy fedora that worked to discrete her identity.
Get the look for less: Wonder NY PU Jeggings ($48.96) and Dotti Stripey Daze Tee ($29.95).

nicolerichie

Nicole Richie’s kimino jacket
Nicole Richie is every boho babe’s source of inspiration. But a vintage wardrobe like Nicole’s doesn’t come cheap.  This incredible fringed kimono is such a wow piece to pair with flared jeans. Luckily we’ve found a way to steal Nicole’s style for less.
Get the look for lessIvy Floral Print Chiffon Long Kimono ($40).

Casual Celebrity Style

We’re used to seeing celebrities in red carpet dresses, but their off-duty looks are just as inspiring for celebrity style. Here’s how to get five perfect summer outfits for less.

Maxi dress with denim jacket
Sarah Michelle Gellar rocked one of summer’s favourite celebrity style looks, pairing a floral maxi dress with a denim jacket. This is a great look for festivals and summer picnics – simply accessories with a long necklace and pretty leather sandals.
Get the look for less: The 1&20 Blackbirds Floral Maxi Dress is a relaxed fit maxi dress that takes us back to our 90’s grunge days, but with a thoroughly modern edge.

sarahmichellegeller

Tartan shirt with maxi dress
Jessica Alba was spotted wearing a casual grey maxi skirt paired with a plain white tee and a tartan button-up for a comfortable look that is both casual and cool. She completed the outfit with a studded cross-body purse.
Get the look for less: The Madalyn Double Split Maxi Skirt is similar in style and is a comfortable trend for spring and autumn. Wear it with a t-shirt or singlet for day, and cover up with a blazer at night. 

jessicaalbafashion

Black and white striped dress
Colour blocking with bold prints is one of the latest ways to celebrate the season with a dress that pops and stands out in a crowd. Emma Watson’s striped dress doesn’t need accessories – just pair with classic black ballerinas and you’re ready for a lazy brunch.
Get the look for less: The Motel Suki Stripe Dress is a great everyday dress – pair it with a colourful belt for a pop of colour.

emmawatsonfashion

Printed drawstring pants with a white singlet
Gwen Stefani is the queen of fashion and a celebrity style inspiration thanks to her unique taste and the risks she takes with her wardrobe. Even on a casual day with her boys, wearing printed drawstring pants and a plain white singlet, she managed to look effortlessly chic. Lightweight printed pants are a summer holiday must-have, just slip on and team with your favourite t-shirt and flip flops.
Get the look for less: Suboo Leopard Print Pants are universally-flattering. Replace your sandals for heels for an easy day-to-night look.

gwenstefanifashion

Red shorts with black blazer
Looking for the perfect Saturday afternoon outfit for catching up with friends? Rachel Bilson’s laid-back style shows she isn’t trying too hard, but still looks polished. Vibrant shorts are a great pop of colour, but stop short of looking too clown like when they’re toned down by a classic white t-shirt and well-cut black blazer.  Get the look for less: ASOS Culotte Shorts in Geo Floral Print come in a fun print and are easy to pack for summer holidays.

Worst Golden Globes Red Carpet Dresses

So many amazing red carpet dresses at the Golden Globes 2014…and yet, so many shockers, and surprisingly, from some of our favourite celebrities. Let’s take a look at some of the fashion disasters…

goldenglobes19

What just happened? Who styled this? You’ve got the start of a business-casual, boyfriend shirt-inspired outfit by Dolce & Gabbana. Then, her stylist added a feminine sparkly diamante belt, which does nothing to accentuate her waist. Finally, a 60’s beehive to complete the discombobulated look.

goldenglobes23

Zoe Saldana is one of the hottest actresses right now, so I guess she was going for edgy when she chose to wear this Prabal Gurung 80’s prom dress. She’s not the only one who had a Prabal Gurung disaster tonight…

goldenglobes15

Sandra Bullock has been scoring a lot of fashion wins lately, so it’s sad she chose this Prabal Gurung satin mullet dress. The colour combination doesn’t work, and the low cut doesn’t flatter either. And those pointy boobs remind us of Anne Hathaway’s 2014 pink Oscars dress. Not good.

goldenglobes20

Mila Kunis has worn some of the prettiest red carpet dresses, yet even she doesn’t love this Liberace-inspired look.

goldenglobes18

Uma Thurman seems to have lost her red carpet mojo. The black top and skirt don’t match, instead creating a jarring contrast. She looks severe and unsexy, which is unheard of for Uma.

goldenglobes14

We wanted to love anything that Jennifer Lawrence chose to wear to the Golden Globes. And from the thighs up, we get it. It’s Dior, it’s high fashion, but that white tulle skirt just looks cheap, like the Spotlight end of year offcuts. Also not a fan of the mismatched jewellery.

goldenglobes21

We can’t wait for season 2 of House of Cards, but Kate Mara’s Golden Globes J Mendel gown is hurting our eyes tonight. The bleached locks, the in-your-face boobs, the weird drape…so many better choices for this pretty young thing.

goldenglobes4

Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss sadly looks like she just woke up an hour before the Golden Globes. Her hair looks messy and her handkerchief tail J Mendel dress doesn’t flatter.

goldenglobes12

Hayden Panettiere debuted a new short haircut, sleeking it back – but it just looks like covering up a bad hair day. And we don’t like the dress either – remember when above-knee slits were big in the early 90’s? Yep, this looks feels just as outdated.

goldenglobes11

We’ve seen Emma Thompson rock the pre-Golden Globes parties in style, but sadly, she showed up wearing a rock-hard gold bodice that looks like it belongs on the set of 300, finished in a boring black skirt.

How to Choose the Perfect Summer Hat

We love hats, especially for summer – they’re a celebrity fashion favourite. They’re the perfect way to accessorise any outfit, from maxi dresses to denim cut-offs and t-shirts. It’s just not always easy finding the right style, so the fashionistas at Melbourne’s Uni Hill Factory Outlets have come to the rescue with their handy style tips.  The floppy hat Perfect for your bohemian-chic days when you let the hippy inside you venture out. Summer screams loose-fitted tops and maxi dresses, which work best with a wide, floppy hat. Be brave; opt for big styles and save your face from direct sun. The secret is to wear the hat – don’t let the hat wear you! cap The go-to cap The best choice for a laid-back look, choose a cute cap for your weekend expeditions. A sleek leather hat will dress up your outfit, and is guaranteed to add a flawless touch to your day or night get-up. fedora Fabulous fedoras The perfect summer hat that can be worn for any occasion; whether it be a road trip or a visit to your local café. Don’t be restricted by the classic straw style, branch out and shop around for different options. Team a black fedora with denim shorts and a tee. bakerboy Baker-boy cap It’s been around the block but this casual cap is a go-to for summer. A little rounder in shape and with a stiff peak in the front, this style goes really well with a classic jeans and tee combo. Try a tweed pattern to top off your outfit. beanie Slouchy beanie Maybe not your first thought for a summer hat, try this look for a day indoors. Look out for crochet beanies and light fabrics like cotton, that aren’t too heavy on your head. Choose bright, fun colours to match your outfit. What’s your favourite summer hat?

But Raquel Welch was the real head-turner in her bombastic red figure-hugging dress. Can you believe she’s 73?

It was a busy week for the Hunger Games crew, continuing their whirlwind promotional world tour for the Catching Fire sequel, and Jennifer Lawrence stunned in this unique Dior creation. Perfect for the Paris premiere.

Another city, another Dior Haute Couture gown. We love the prom-inspired neckline and sexy billowing skirt worn over a black basque pulled together with a thick belt.

Meanwhile co-star Elizabeth Banks was radiant in this sculptured hot orange gown with sparkly embellishments at the L.A. premiere.

And if there’s any doubt purple is going to be a big fashion trend, here’s Girls’ star Allison Williams in a royal purple off-the-shoulder L’Wren Scott dress at the CNN Heroes: An All Star Tribute evening in NYC.

From Gisele Bundchen in Atelier Versace, to Salma Hayek in Gucci, here are this week’s best celebrity red carpet dresses.

Gisele Bundchen showed off her endless legs in a stunning navy blue dress by Atelier Versace at Wall Street Journal Magazine’s Innovator Of The Year Awards (she’s also on the cover of their November issue along with Daft Punk). And what do you think of those shoes!

h2

Fergie and Josh Duhamel
The new parents showed up at Kate Hudson’s celebrity Halloween extravaganza as Elvira and a character from the Rocky Horror Picture Show – perfect!

h1

Paris Hilton
Paris showed up as Miley Cyrus in her now-infamous VMA outfit, complete with sticking her tongue out at any photo opportunity. Predictable, don’t you think?

h6

Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris
Speaking of predictable, look who else dressed up as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke – that’s right, Hugh Hefner and wife Crystal Harris. Hugh just looks like a creepy convict.

h9

Golden Globes After-Party Best + Worst Dressed

The fashion highs and lows continued at the Golden Globes after-parties – with one Aussie celeb rebounding from her awards’ disaster, while other celebs continued to plummet in the style stakes.

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom

Love MIranda’s shimmery calf-length Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Elle Macpherson

We weren’t a fan of her Golden Globes bridezilla gown, yet Elle simply glowed at the after-party in a glittering gold fishtail dress.

Jessica Alba

One of our best dressed favourites keeps it up in this simple yet sparkly strapless dress.

Rachel Zoe

A whimsical, Heidi-esque dress is ruined by Rachel’s angry zombie stare. Even Victoria Beckham is smiling these days.

Kim Kardashian

Even Ricky Gervais’ opening gag poking fun at her and her 72-day marriage couldn’t stop Kim showing up to the after-party, over-dressed in serious black.

Erin Wasson

Oh, brother. Erin Wasson’s stick-thin frame puts us off our dinner in this barely there dress (if you can call it a dress?)

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay’s pale skin clashes in this nude apricot dress gown thing.

Who is your best and worst dressed from the Golden Globes after-party?

Fashion Business: Mybag

When did you start your Fashion Business?
October 2002

What was your inspiration to start the business?
I noticed a trend towards photographic prints and thought it was a great idea for personalised bags. I made a bag for myself with a photo of my son Hugo on it, and every time I had it with me people asked where they could get one. I then made some for family and friends and the business grew from there.

Best lessons learnt so far:
Keep focused on your business plan. Build relationships with customers and suppliers. Don?t try to do everything when you start.

Advice to others who want to start own Fashion Business?
Find a gap in the market, then make sure there is a market for that gap.

Favourite Fashion Designers?
I like to wear vintage pieces with current fashion and am not locked into any particular designer. I mix different textures and fabrics always with a hint of colour. I do love Australian designers: Willow, and Sass and Bide.

Celebrity Clients?
Sarah O?Hare, Nicky Buckley, Patty Newton, Melissa Doyle, Effie, Wendy Harmer, Deborah Hutton.

5 Fashion Must haves this year?
Winter 2004
Small Mybag tote with an old family photo.
Knee or thigh boots.
High waisted slim leg pants.
Fake fur shawl.
An accessory with sparkle.

Summer 2004
Short fitted mini skirt.
Vintage scarf warn as a belt.
White leather Mybag with black and white photos.
Printed cross over rap dress
Strapy sexy heals

My Personal Style?
I would say my personal style is eclectic.
Functional with character is important to me similar to Mybag which is the perfect size tote bag and each one an individual piece. I always buy good quality products and this is reflected in Mybag as I use high quality materials which look better and last longer. I think the two key words that sum up my personal style are eclectic and functional.
