Cara Delevingne...

My new favourite person has got to be Cara Delevingne right now. 

The stunning 20 year old face of Burberry is just about everywhere at the minute and not just because she's supposedly dating Harry Styles.

She has the wardrobe envy of millions and has modelled for anybody who is anybody.

Here she is on the catwalks of London Fashion Week for Topshop Unique and Burberry:

Also during Paris Fashion Week for Anthony Vaccerello and Chanel:

She is the face for luxury British brand Burberry:

And has featured on the ad's for countless other big brands:

She's on the cover of November's British Vogue:

And even her day to day street style is amazing:

At just 20 years old her CV is incredible. Definitely one to watch.

Let History Repeat Itself...

As we all well know fashion designers love to re-create their own versions of historical trends through their latest collections and this year was no different to any other.

We have already seen Moschino in Milan and Louis Vuitton in Paris give us a glimpse of the swinging sixty's, but lets take a look at what other era's are looking to make a comeback next spring.

Well if Valentino is anything to come by then it's most definitely Edwardian-Victorian dress.

However if the YSL Saint Laurent collection is anything to go by then it looks like it could be the seventy's (minus the flower power). 

I love a good come back, I say bring back them all.

Beautiful Chloe...

Once again Clare Waight Keller has produced a beautiful collection for Chloe. 

Whilst some weren't big fans of next spring/summers collection I absolutely loved it on the catwalk of Paris Fashion Week last week. Featuring bermuda style shorts, crop tops, oversized tunic tops, sheer pleated dresses and a whole load of ruffles I felt the collection was stunning, effortless and elegant. I loved the mainly muted tones but most of all that the idea behind it was "pull on and go".

Take a look at just a few of my favourites :)
