Urban Style Review
I can proudly say that it has certainly been an amazing year for celebrity trends in 2013, with brands such as Lanvin, Emilio Pucci, Tom Ford and Balmain amongst others on the rise. We saw the launch of Rihanna’s River Island collection, Nicki Minaj’s K-Mart release, red carpet award show swag, from the AMA’s to the VMA’s and so much more. Before we look forward to the release of 2014 designer spring collections, here is the crème de la crème of December’s hot trends.
Beyoncé definitely had an explosive end to the year following the release of her self-titled album which took the top spot as the biggest selling LP of the year. She looked simply breath-taking at the screening party, wearing a super sexy Tom Ford Spring 2014 embellished turtleneck dress and thigh-high matching embellished boots. This may very well be my favourite outfit of the year. Prior to this, Beyoncé was spotted in West Hollywood wearing a Pre-Fall 2013 Givenchy Calf Hair sweater, beautiful red Kurt Geiger Britton pumps, leather skinnies and chic Prada shades.
When it comes to celebrity weight loss last year, Christina Aguilera's transformation has been incredible. She was recently spotted out for dinner at Off Vine with her boyfriend, wearing a glam Loris Azzaro chainmail jersey dress and crystal embellished 5.7 inch Jimmy Choo Kendall peep toe pumps. Literally spells glam.
Our beautiful much-loved princess of pop Rihanna launched a campaign with Balmain before 2013 drew to a close as the new face of the classy brand. For the campaign shoot Ri looked modelesque in a chain-embellished pink and white robe and white lace gold capped toe booties. Soon she will also cover the Spring/Summer 2014 campaign which will be released later this month.
Meagan Good recently took to the red carpet in promotion of the movie she currently appears in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. She attended the UK premiere wearing a beautiful Ralph & Russo gold gown with complimentary gold heels and simplistic, gorgeous jewellery.
Best friend to Kim Kardashian and girlfriend to rapper Tyga, Blac Chyna has launched an urban online boutique called 88 Fin, which features jackets, jeans, dresses, accessories and shoes. Modelled by herself, her modest threads are guaranteed to become a huge success following her rapidly growing fan base.
A radiant Alicia Keys wore contrastingly bold and vibrant outfits for two separate events in 2013, which complimented her features so well. Ms Keys looked fabulous at the Foxtel Music Channels launch in a striking Bianca Spender electric blue suit, and also made an appearance at the 27th Annual ARIA Awards in Sydney, Australia in a beautiful yellow Stella McCartney sleeveless golden belted gown. Great colours, great style.
Happy New Year!
