Urban Style Review
The month of March can mean only one thing, the beginning of Spring, with summer 2 months away and clocks set to go forward at the end of the month to welcome in British Summer Time, we can safely say that winter is over. Oh, and not forgetting the prestigious Oscars! For the world of high street fashion it’s that time of year to embrace lighter colours pastel tones, and soft textures as the weather becomes milder, and hopefully we are lucky enough to enjoy more sunshine, as Easter looms.
UK singer Lily Allen was recently spotted greeting fans at a local event wearing a pink crop top, black leather joggers, and matching pink pumps. She accessorized with a contrasting blue Chanel purse. Now it's an absolute fashion must-have. Every chic female must own a pair of leather joggers, which are extremely on trend at the moment.
Kim Kardashian will literally be the talk of the town with her wedding fast approaching this summer. Kim was spotted leaving the Dash Boutique in Los Angeles wearing a Kardashian Kollection white peplum dress with a Saint Laurent suede pumps. Classic black Christian Louboutin pigalle pumps would have looked fab. The gorgeous sleeveless dress is made of a stretch knit fabric, featuring a discrete snakeskin print, cut-out scoop neckline, peplum detailing, and a sleeveless silhouette. Love.
Kim also attended Elton John Oscar-viewing party in support of the Aids Foundation at West Hollywood Park earlier this month, all eyes were on Kim Kardashian who looked amazing in a waist-cinching Celia Kritharioti ball gown with Lorraine Shwartz jewellery.
The gorgeous VH1 Basketball Wives star Draya Michele, stopped by The Arsenio Hall show last week. She rocked a Zara cropped sweater, Alexander McQueen black wide leg pants, and Christian Louboutin pumps. Faultless.
Rihanna has been spending a lot of time with Drake during his tour, which has lead to obvious speculation that the two are dating again. We hope so! Drake and Rihanna was both spotted leaving Nobu restaurant in London, UK. Rihanna was seen wearing a custom designed Raif Adelberg Drugs hoody, Acne Generic distressed jeans, and silver Christian Louboutin pumps. Drake kept it suave in denim on denim with a double breasted coat and blue timbs.
UK songstress, the fantastically talented Jessie J recently flew Stateside and was seen in New York rocking seriously trendy threads with a Chanel sling bag as an accessory with black leather pants, and black knitted top. Best believe the 'Alive' singer got her hands on a pair of the highly sort after Red October trainers by Kanye West. Yup, she's fly.
I feel like it was only a matter of time that former sassy Pussycat Doll, and X Factor Judge Nicole Scherzinger would launch a clothing line for the savvy girly clothing brand Missguided. The gorgeous edgy shoot was shot on location in the outskirts of LA and Nicole basically kills the entire photoshoot.
The 30 piece range which takes influence from Nicole's very own signature style, and as you can see will be fierce and totally sexy, featuring stylish black jumpsuits, figure-hugging bodycon dresses and electric blue cut-out midis - all for under £50. Nicole
The 86th Annual Academy Awards took place in Hollywood during the first week in March, and I literally couldn't wait to see the red carpet dresses. My favourite look was Lupita Nyong'o who won Best Actress in a Supporting Role in 12 Years A Slave. She looked stunning in a soft pastel blue Prada gown and Fred Leighton jewels, and an additional headband piece which I thought looked so pretty.
Will Smith & Jada Pinkett also looked fab, with Jada in a stunning Versace dress, another of my favourite dresses of the night. Huge thumbs up to Will, who looked regal and handsome, loving the cravat underneath a smart white shirt.
Future is proudly wearing his emotions on his sleeve of late in honor of his love for his future wife Ciara, as he took to the stage at 2014 SXSW wearing an Opening Ceremony x Elvis Can’t Help Falling In Love sweatshirt. He also wore sweatpants from the brand, and black leather shorts. The French Terry sweatshirt features a ribbed hem and cuffs, a crew neckline, and ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ a title of one of Elvis’s most popular songs. Love how the colour of text on the sweater matches Future’s locks! Swag.
