Seeing red: Blake Lively + Rihanna wear red suits

Have two of our favourite celebs sparked a micro-trend? Rihanna and Blake Lively have both been spotted wearing traffic-stopping red suits in the past week. While the coordinating colours thing is very this summer, the red suit has been an almost constant presence on the catwalk in recent years as well as on countless celebs. Is it a look you’ll try? Chris de Burgh is a fan.

StyleMint comes to the UK – thanks Stylistpick!

It’s a match made in heaven…Stylistpick and the Olsen twins. Maty-Kate and Ashley’s successful t-shirt business, StyleMint collection is now available in the UK and we are beyond happy.

You can get your dose of super stylish celeb-designed tees at Stylistpick – which already offers amazing clothing and accessories picked out by some top stylists and Cheryl Cole’s shoe collection.

Both Stylistpick and StyleMint are all about making celeb-inspired looks accessible to everyone and the StyleMint tees are a great chance to get your hands on some Olsen wear, which is apparently really good quality.


As well as being stylish the tees also come minus the usual high price tags that you see on the Olsens’ other brands- Elizabeth and James, James and Olsenboye and especially The Row – which won them Womenswear designer of the Year at the CFDA Awards.

I love Victoria and the mountain graphic tee

We’ve been waiting for the StyleMint concept to come over to the UK since it launched in 2011 thanks to entrepreneur Josh Berman and Diego Berdakin. In case you’re not familiar with the brand, StyleMint offers its registered customers monthly shopping recommendations after they fill in a survey of their style preferences. And the celeb hook-ups are amazing…let’s hope Kate Bosworth’s JewelMint is available in the UK soon!

Stylistpick also lets Brits take a style quiz and suggests options, but you can now browse the whole collection – and check out Cheryl’s newest shoe designs. We like!

The Row x Superga

You know by now that I’m a little obsessed with Superga’s so imagine my joy at the news that two of my favourite people – Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have pimped some plimsols!

The Row for Superga plimsolls are what you might expect- beautifully made from luxe materials, super stylish and yes, expensive.  The cashmere plimsolls are a hefty £250 and the linen versions £190. Are you sold?

Super luxe cashmere pump

Linen - there are 3 colours but I like the blue

Elizabeth Olsen rocks velvet suit

And here were we thinking that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were the edgy dressers of the family. Elizabeth Olsen has stepped out in the trickiest of ensembles – a velvet suit – and has managed not to look like a 1960s throwback (think Austin Powers) or one of those matchy-matchy velour and diamante tracksuit gym bunnies.  Go Elizabeth!

Elizabeth Olsen makes velvet suits cool

What do you think?

Mary-Kate + Ashley Olsen for Elle magazine

We’re always excited when the monthly batch of fashion magazines land at Snap Fashion HQ but this month I was especially pleased to see Ashley Olsen on the cover of my Elle magazine. Mary-Kate covers the version available in the shops (Ashley on the subscribers’ copies) and the editorial inside is stunning.

We won’t ruin it for you by posting a whole bunch of pics but the magazine is definitely worth a purchase and this month it comes with a high street buys mini magazine too, which has some great affordable pieces that you’ll want!

Which cover do you prefer? I have to say I almost always prefer Ashley’s quirkier style (but it’s a close call – they both look amazing!)

Style Crush : Great Gatsby style

The Great Gatsby is among my favourite books (although doesn’t quite make my desert island selection) but I am SO excited about the forthcoming film.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Leonardo diCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan have scored the starring roles in The Great Gatsby and Baz Luhrmann is directing.

Better news still is that Tiffany & Co is creating bespoke jewels for the film based on its archives, while Ashley Olsen is lending some of her vintage treasures, according to The Telegraph.

We’ll have to wait a while to see the whole film as it will be out just before next Christmas, but while the plot will have to be brilliant, we’ll be glued to the fashion detailing too, which promises to be spectacular.

But if that’s too long to hold on for some 1920s glamour, Art Deco style, drop-waisted dresses are already in the shops and they’ll be plenty more this Spring. Gucci + John Pierre Braganza debuted some incredible SS12 collections, while Amanda Seyfried was snapped in an Alberta Ferretti drop-waist beaded dress.

Here are a couple of our 5 favourite high street 1920s favourites…

Oh we want those Tiffany diamonds!

We can’t believe that the Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen haven’t been on the cover of American Vogue – but now the wait is over, kinda.

The super stylish twins grace the cover of Vogue Best-Dressed with gorgeous lace head gear. Do you love it?

Looking amazing as usual!

Christian Louboutin + Blake Lively

It’s no secret that Gossip Girl Blake Lively is a huge fan of Christian Louboutin’s famous red-soled shoes and here she is being swept off her feet (rocking 2  trends: leather and snakeskin) by the man himself – it looks like a scene from Gossip Girl!

We love Blake's snakeskin print Louboutins and super soft leather coat

Leggy Lively towers over the designer

Christian was celebrating the launch of his new book at Barneys in NYC and was joined by some of our favourite stylish starlets, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Leigh Lezark.

The Olsen twins are stylish as always

Leigh Lezark keeps it cool and casual

And here’s another amazing outfit for Serena van der Woodson that we should add to our Gossip Girl series 5 gallery!

If only we could pull of the slouch boot/ knee-high sock combo (way too short!)
