Who wore what at Coachella (and the Mulberry party at Coachella – natch)? We spotted a lot of animal print, black, feathers and studs – so what you would expect from Hollywood’s coolest stars letting their hair down at a gig or two. Some serious festival inspiration for us all!

So what if she’s not always super-edgy, we like Emma Watson’s laid-back off duty style…and anyone can copy it.
Every year fashion magazines declare the winter season requires a statement coat and this year luxe parkas were one such suggestion.
They certainly seem to have been a hit in celeb-land and one coat in particular. Kristen Stewart, Natalie Portman and Emma Watson have all been spotted in a Denim & Supply ‘chino cotton field jacket’.
The brand is new (and part of Ralph Lauren) and is not completely unaffordable. You can jump on the celeb bandwagon for £220 and the best thing is that regardless of the ‘statement’ coat du jour, parkas are always in fashion. If you’re not totally convinced check out the celebs loving Barbour quilted and waxed jackets!

Few can dispute the impact Kate Middleton has had on the nation’s wardrobes. Dressing like a lady is in again, brides are after Sarah Burton look-a-like dresses and sales of ‘nude’ leg-lengthening court shoes have soared.
And now she’s topped Harper’s Bazaar’s best-dressed British woman list, despite Dame Vivienne Westwood branding her style as ‘ordinary’. We love the way Kate mixes high fashion and statement jewellery (well if you do have access to the crown jewels…) with high street pieces from the likes of Topshop and Zara, which sell out of her picks almost immediately!
The magazine’s editor, Lucy Yeomans, who headed up the judging panel, reportedly said the Duchess won as her “incredible style evolution has gripped us all.”
Kate beat off fierce competition to top the list of the nation’s 20 most influentially attired (apparently). We’re not sure how much the ‘influential’ bit counts or whether it’s a best-dressed list really.
Kate Moss came 4th and Harper’s reportedly said: “She has a Tesco attitude about fashion – she makes accessible to everyone” well maybe, but her recent collaboration with Fred is anything but high street!
Tilda Swinton took 5th, Kiera Knightley 6th (see that Mary Katrantzou dress at Cannes) Stella McCartney 7th (for her own personal style rather than her own label- we think) sneaker-lover Phoebe Philo in 8th, Alexa Chung in 9th and Livia Firth in 10th– possibly because of how well she rocked that Stella McCartney Illusion dress!
Here’s the run-down from 11 to 20: Natalie Massanet, Natalia Vodianova, Samantha Cameron, Emma Watson, Yasmin Le Bon, Thandie Newton, Charlotte Dellal, Kristen Scott Thomas, Josephine De La Baume and Cara Delevigne.
Who’s be in your top 10 most influential current British style icons?
P.S. Just noticed that Pippa Middleton didn’t make the list!
We’re always on the look-out for super flattering winter coats (after all we wear one almost every day!) And now Emma Watson has provided some cosy coat inspiration for petite pear-shaped girls with this cute parka jacket.
Chicer than her Harry Potter character Hermione (who favours a black cape) Emma is back at Oxford University where some of the films were filmed, this time to study English Literature… (we’d rather learn magic!)
She’s also working her inner swot in new film The Perks of Being a Wallflower and we can’t wait to see it!
