Big coats

The bigger, the better! Oversized coats have been trendy for the past two seasons, but this doesn’t mean that they’re outdated.

Christine Centenera isn’t afraid to play with colour, and was spotted in this green oversized coat exiting the shows at Paris Fashion Week.

Fedora

A large-brimmed fedora hat is perfect to keep the sun away during the summer, and keeps your head warm in the winter. This particular show-goer paired her fedora with a thick, comfy sweater and leopard print brogues.

Shearling

Large shearling coats took the place of leather jackets this season, and minimised the amount of layering for the cold New York City snow.

Who doesn’t love a classic, all-black outfit during the winter?

Key chains

Those adorable key chains you accessorised your bags with in the 90s are back and bigger than ever this season. We spotted a number of show-goers clipping them to their keys, purses, and even a Saint Laurent handbag!

Double Denim

Blogger Lorna from Symphony of Silk showed us another way to make double denim work in all seasons.

The formula? Pair with a logo or statement jumper for best results. A knotted silk scarf completed her outfit, and gave a nod to her blog – all in a days work!

Mom jeans

Remember those old, high-waisted jeans that your mum would wear in the 80s?

They’re back in fashion, with a number of bloggers, and stylists sporting them in various washes this season. Pair with ankle boots and a blazer for instant-glam.

Wrap skirt

The wrap skirt is a hit each season, but we didn’t think it looked this good until blogger Camille Charriére was spotted in this khaki version.

Wear with a pair of killer stiletto’s during the evening, and zip ankle boots for the day time.

Beauty Trends From London and Milan Fashion Week

While the shows in London and Milan sadly come to a close and the models move to Paris in the last leg of fashion month, we can’t help but gush over the beauty trends for Spring 2015. From dewy complexions to bleached-out brows, here are just a few major trends straight off the runway.

Pink lip stains 

Where: Dolce and Gabbana

Lip stains are a major trend every year, but Dolce and Gabbana certainly know how to work this easy look for every skin tone. Girls were sent down the runway with carefully sculpted brows, fresh skin, and a touch of pink glow on their lips.

Beauty Trends From London and Milan Fashion WeekConcentrate the lip stain in the centre of the lips, and work outwards to achieve a subtle pink glow.

Smokey eye 

Where: Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli brought back the sultry smokey eye, using an earthy-toned colour palette which is perfect for both day and night wear. Makeup artists created this look using a crayon pencil on the base of the eyelid, and blending out extremely well with a fluffy brush.

Beauty Trends From London and Milan Fashion WeekThe rest of the makeup was minimal, and lips were kept natural with a tiny bit of gloss, instead of a bold lipstick.

Bold lip

Where: Burberry Prorsum 

All models accessorised their trenchcoats with relaxed hair and a bold red lip at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 show. The best way to achieve this look at home is by lining the lips, and then blending out any harsh lines before applying a red lip colour to the centre.

Beauty Trends From London and Milan Fashion WeekCreate the illusion of bigger lips by concentrating a highlighting powder in the centre, before applying a gloss to complete the look.

Dewy skin

Where: Versace

Radiant skin was the word at Versace, where models embraced the natural look paired with rosy cheeks. Use a cream illuminator on the forehead, cheeks, and chin to create a subtle hint of shine for a chic daytime look.

Natural brows

Where: Missoni

This was definitely a no-pluck zone, where Missoni models were made to embrace the natural texture of their brows. Powder was keep to a minimum, used only to fill out any gaps since the overall look was very minimalist-chic.

Is Elle at an all-time low?

Is Elle at an all-time low?

Has all the partying, running a business, having two kids and being a fab wife finally caught up with Elle Macpherson? The first signs things might have been going a bit pear shaped for The Body was her notable absence from one of UK fashion’s biggest events, London Fashion Week. Weeks later it was revealed that she had also cancelled her commitments at the most prestigious racing and social events, the Melbourne Cup, where she was due to be a star guest next month. Media all around the world are claiming the supermodel has checked herself into The Meadows rehabilitation clinic in Arizona and is being treated for postnatal depression.

Media pundits are speculating that Elle might be in the depths of a mid-life crisis – her 40th birthday next year. There are also rumours that she is at an all-time emotional low, suffering from “exhaustion and stress”. As Elle?s family closes ranks around her, friends are rallying to her defense ?She just wants to devote herself to being a good mother and partner to Arkie, as well as keeping her business interests strong? one friend told the press. Maybe the supermodel is finding out that she is only human and that trying to run a global business, raise two young children and be a good wife is a super-human effort by any ones standards! Get well soon Elle!



Berry dumps sex addict husband

Last week Oscar-winning actress, Halle Berry and husband Eric Benet announced their separation. The couple has apparently asked the press for some privacy during their separation. Berry announced that the marriage was in trouble after less than three years of marriage. ?Eric and I have had marital problems for some time now and have tried to work things out together,” she said in a statement. “However, at this point, I feel we need time apart to re-evaluate our union.” The couple met in 1999 and tied the knot in 2001, the marriage a second for Berry. But, as frequently reported in media around the world, Benet had a bit of a problem with the ?forsaking all others? part of the wedding vows, his alleged martial meandering seems to have finally taken its toll on the couple. Ms Berry has asked for her privacy to be respected “during this emotional time”.



Heath and Naomi Splitsville too!

Glamour Australian actors Heath Ledger and Naomi Watts have split. Ledger, 24, and Watts, 35, who met on the Australian movie set of Ned Kelly early last year are members of the clique of Australian actors making it big in Hollywood recently. Australian publicist Kate Ledger -Heath?s sister – confirmed the couple had ended their 16-month relationship. “Heath Ledger and Naomi Watts have made the decision to go their separate ways,” she said in a statement. “At this time in their lives both are busy pursuing careers which are taking them in different directions.? The statements also confirmed “They remain close friends.”

The air has been thick with rumours of the demise of this couple. Both Naomi and Heath have been spotted flying solo at key industry events around the globe – Naomi was most recently at Venice?s Film Festival on the red carpet promoting her next two flicks Le Divorce and 21 Grams. Maybe as Naomi?s star is firmly rising and Ledger?s seems have stalled put extra pressure on the couple. Friends are pointing the finger of blame at their pair?s hectic careers as well as the much-discussed eleven-year age gap. But, the classy couple seem to have broken the break-up mold – no dramas, no one third parties involved, no name calling, no restraining orders! Nice to see some people break up like mature adults and even manage to stay friends!

London Fashion Week

Elspeth Gibson

London Fashion Week. What red blooded Aussie gal wouldn?t give up her Prada handbag (or boyfriend) to be seated next to Liz Hurley or Cate Blanchett at the London Fashion Week parades? Forget pushing your way through the GP (general public) to catch a glimpse of Megan Gale at the latest David Jones in store parades. We?re talking French Champagne, lots of perfume, air kisses and ?I?ll email you!? in the London?s fashion world annual showcase. LFW (London Fashion Week for those in the know) is as much a social event as it is a chance for designers to show off their wares to the world?s media and fashion buyers.Imagine sitting next to Madge (Madonna) at the Elspeth Gibson show as her models strut their stuff down the catwalk in the latest dreamy collection in feminine pinks and pale blues. Showing her versatility Gibson also showed excellent use of

Paul Smith

bright vibrant colours like magenta and a stunning peacock blue. Gibson?s collection was very Collette Dinnigan-ish in its use of feathers, crystals and lots of beading. Her ?Vision of Eden? collection one of her best yet.Don?t worry if you haven?t seen Gibson?s clothes in stores locally just yet. See www.londonfashionweek.co.uk for the total experience without the airfare and the pushing and shoving sweetie! LFW is a hotbed of local and undiscovered talent, feature lots of young, up and coming UK designers Showing along side industry stalwarts like Paul Smith and Julien McDonald.

US designer Ben De Lisi, a current flavour of the month, proved his popularity by packing in a full house at his parade. Fans of his clothes, like Kate Winslet and Rachel Weisz saw a very Moroccan ?inspired collection in both the mens and women?s clothes he showed.

One thing all of the parades have had in common is the return of the mini. Get on that Stairmaster Girlfriend! Great legs are back in fashion! Forget that long, flowing peasant look that covered everything we had ? next season?s ubiquitous must have is the mini!

In the first few days of the LFW, the Pelmet Mini that just covers the buttocks was seen in nearly every designer?s parade. This teeny weeny botty sash, favoured by Christina Aguilera and Holly Valance, who were both in attendance, is the hottest item for the coming season. While I can?t see myself running around town in a skimpy mini teamed with stilettos and bare legs, plenty of London chicks have braved the freezing English winter to do just that.

It seems some people will do anything to stay ahead of the Fashion Police!

So high tail it back to the gym girls. The mini is coming to our shores! You have been warned!
