BAFTA Beauty Challenge


BAFTA Challenge, by House of Fraser



 This blogger challenge came at the most perfect time. The task was to re create a beauty look inspired by one of your favourite red carpet starlet. I have just attended my Politics ball in which I channelled both my hair and make up loosely on Julianne Hough's iconic look. She always has the most chic and sophisticated red carpet presence whilst looking sassy and flirtatious. I am obsessed with this beauty look, believing its' both feminine and elegant.



Here is my look:

                                    
My Hair:
My updo was the work of Gary Headley, a city salon 
which is a great recommend for girls on the go who require an up do.

My make up look:
I had a LA spray tan to create a bronzed summer
look which would compliment my blush coloured dress.

Face:
Benefit Porefessional Primer
Body Shop BB cream in 01
Rimmel Stay Matte powder in 06 Warm Beige
Body Shop illuminating pearls
Benefit High Beam highlighter
Body Shop Marshmallow blusher

Eyes:
Urban decay eyeshadow primer
Urban decay Naked Palette, using shades Virgin, Sidecar, Smoke, Darkhorse
Ubran decay loose eyeshdow in Midnight cowboy
Benefit they're real mascara
Rimmel waterproof exaggerate mascara

Eyebrows:
Urban decay Naked Palette shade Buck

Lips:
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine lipstain, Electra Hot Pink

My House of Fraser wishlist item:
Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine delight perfume
'A luminous bouquet of fresh picked florals, Daisy Delight Edition is a vibrant expression of Daisy signature. The fragrance blooms into a burst of quince flower and iris, brightened with crisp red apple. Sun Ripened woods and musks dry down to a warm sensual embrace.'

What could sound more perfect? The key heart notes of this fragrance are Apple, Quince flower, Freesia, Iris, Gardenia and my favourite, Peony. Florals are my favourite and are the most divine scent. I have been longing to wear Daisy since it's release. This perfume would complete my red carpet look.

Katy Perry- Prismatic World Tour Costume Couture

10th May 2014: Katy Perry, Prismatic World Tour
On Saturday I combined two of my favourites, fashion and Katy Perry. The whole Prismatic experience was something truly phenomenal and her outfits were one of the major contributors to this. Unlike her last tour, which was just as fabulous, Katy opted for designer pieces rather than costumes. It wasn't just one eye Katy caught but an array of designers who made bespoke pieces for her world tour. This starlet is touring until December so it was only right that each piece was thoughtful, sassy and powerful and would remain eternally phenomenal. What was even more exciting is that this was only her second location of the whole tour so we were exposed to this amazing show before the rest of the world.
Ravishing Roberto
Designer: Roberto Cavalli
Songs: Roar, Part of Me,  This moment, love me
This piece could not have been any more perfect to start the show. As Katy emerged out of what can only be described as a pyramid, she set the tone for the whole night. As well as capturing the intricate detail and elegance this ensemble has, Katy's quirky style was more vibrant than ever. With neon lights accessorised around the hem of both her top and skirt and running through her sleek ponytail Katy's audience indulged in her outfit rather than becoming distracted by the surrounding props. Roberto Cavalli's vision was achieved to it's finest. 


Puglisi Cleopatra Chic
Designer: Fausto Puglisi
Songs:  Darkhorse, ET, Legendary Lovers
We then travelled into ancient Egypt where Katy emerged on a golden horse, accessorised with divine metallic colour combinations. Even dressed as an Egyptian goddess this outfit felt anything but a costume. From those gorgeous lilac knee highs and her embellished strapless dress Katy was a vision of dominance. Her tour was a work of an art, that only mastery could achieve. For a piece that could easily look tacky, understated and fit for a pantomime, Fausto Puglisi ensured Katy looked head to toe chic and succeeded in her portrayal of the Egyptian Queen.

Kitty Purry by The Blonds
Designer: The Blonds
Songs:  Kissed a girl, HOT n Cold, International Vogue Smile
Who looks this good wearing a catsuit?! Not to mention her costume change time was ridiculously short! Katy shows off her fun and feisty side before getting a little more serious singing acoustic in Valentino couture.

Valentino by nature
Designer: Valentino
Songs:  By the Grace of God, The one that got away, Double rainbow, Unconditionally
This ensemble was magical and bohemian and perhaps my favourite of the entire night. Anyone who knows of Valentino's creations knows that he is a master. This outfit is simply breathtaking and of course it is only right Katy also wears rainbow locks to add a little of her personality to the piece.

Mischievous Moschino
Designer: Jeremy Scott 
Songs: Dance Mix, Walking on Air,  This is how we do-TGIF
This Moschino, Jeremy Scott creation is the epitome of Katy's Prismatic world tour. Fun, feisty and fabulous. Moschino dominated the runway for AW14 with their brand inspired pieces such as the McDonalds ensembles and accessories (which Katy is a big fan of).  This smiley face printed combo which paired with her slime green hair is one element that separates Katy from every other artist. Her outfits mirror both her song and mood and Katy had the entire audience at her feet. In two hours she was able to portray every emotion which was enabled by her outfit. Who would have thought a designer & costume combination like this could ever work?

A Wujec kinda Met dress
Designer: Johnny Wujec 
Songs: It takes two
This was most certainly a good enough reason to miss the Met Gala however Katy was there in spirit and topped the list for the most extravagant gown. Whilst she could have sang this ballad stood in the middle of the stage holding a microphone, like every other artist, she twirled in an over dramatic yin/yang dress en capturing every single member of the audience. This gown is dramatic but surprisingly believable allowing everyone to take her seriously which is unexpected due to it's extravagance. 

West coast represent by Wujek 
Designer: Johnny Wujek
Songs: Teenage Dream, California Girls
You wouldn't think Katy's Cali girl songs from Teenage Dream could be considered old school but these songs were released in 2010 that is four years ago!! Katy remains her flirty and playful self and we couldn't imagine her in anything other than a bikini when singing these 'classics'. Four years on and she remains the same, but better.

Sweet by Discount Universe
                            
Designer: Discount Universe
Songs: Birthday
This was the most magical part of the entire night. This sheer catsuit is the closest Katy could get to her birthday suit and believe it or not, it was from Discount Universe!. She floated through the air as streamers and confetti showered the audience. If there is one part of the night to be entirely jealous of, this is most certainly it. Her ensemble was simplistic in everything but print allowing it to be appropriate yet show stopping.

Prismatic

Designer: Todd Thomas
Songs: Firework
The encore portrayed Katy at her finest. Wearing a dramatic catsuit with an added extravagant skirt this fabulous lady was a vision. This is my favourite kind of Katy. The colours were gorgeous and continued her Prismatic transformation we were expose to from the beginning of the night. Back to her normal black loose locks (even if it was a wig),  Katy was picture perfection. The experience was worth her absence from the Met Ball red carpet as her tour wardrobe provided us with all the glamour we desired. 


 

Sugar Apple Manicure

Although I said only yesterday how obsessed I am with my Rose Hip mani, which is now sold out everywhere, I just couldn't wait any longer for a bit of Sugar Apple- I LOVE it.

Which Kate Moss are you?- Topshop Collection Edit

Darlings one of the most anticipated collaborations of the year has just landed.
Kate Moss for Topshop.
The darling supermodel who is BFFs with Sir Phillip Green has created a phenomenal collection inspired by her own personal style as you will soon see. Both chic and sophisticated Kate has allowed us to explore her fashion journey over the years via her high street collection. The whole collection has become so high in demand since it's launch that many pieces are once again awaiting to be restocked online and have even appeared on ebay for thousands. 

The real question is, which Kate Moss are you?
Year after year, event after event Kate Moss has the fashion industry at her feet and of course must look every inch of fabulous at all times. Her collection is based on this notion.

Here I have picked my favourite pieces from the collection that mirror not only Kate's personality and career but also her most memorable pieces that served as potential inspirations when designing the collection . I have paired them with a pair of Topshop shoes as I believe their SS14 collection is currently amazing- take a sneak peek darlings.

 Kate Moss the supermodel
The girl who is hard working and motivated
Collection price: Playsuit £75, Shoes £60
Original outfit worn: September 2013
Original designer: Longchamp
Perfect for: Date night

Cara Delevingne wore this gorgeous playsuit when attending the Oxford St. launch party. Paired with perfectly tanned pins and a killer hairstyle this model is destined to follow in the foot steps of Kate.

 Kate Moss in demand
The girl who is show stopping and dominant.
Collection price: Dress £250, Shoes £58
Original outfit worn: March, 2009
Original designer: Fendi
Perfect for: High society ball

Another of Kate's long time BFFs Naomi Campbell, also a killer supermodel, showed her support at the launch wearing my favourite piece of the entire collection (which is currently sold out online). Sparkle is everything.

The girl who is fliratious and fun
Collection price: Dress £85, Shoes £72
Original outfit worn: September, 2003

 Kate Moss Queen of the city
The girl who is powerful and fabulous
Collection price: Jacket £225, Top £75, Shorts £46, Shoes £48
Original outfit worn: September 2013

The angelic Suki Waterhouse, also a rising supermodel like Cara, opted for this fringed ensemble for the Topshop launch.

Which Kate Moss are you darling? Which is your favourite piece from the collection? I am undecided between Kate the supermodel and Kate in demand. What outfit piece will you be purchasing?
