Rosie Huntington-Whiteley covers Elle magazine

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looks amazing on the cover of Elle magazine’s September issue and we can’t wait to see the subscriber’s issue *waits by the letter box*. I love the mixture of winter florals and crochet…but are short shorts the perfect seasonal transitional outfit…maybe only in front cover land.

Olympics: British supermodel walk-off rumours

If there was a fashion Olympics, we would like to see running in heels, hurdling Hermes Birkin bags and a walk-off. Oh, hang on a minute, it would appear the fashion gods have smiled on London 2012 and we might just get a supermodel walk-off after all!

According to rumours, Britain’s best supermodels are set to strut their stuff in the closing ceremony and we’re talking the likes of Lily Cole, Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Georgia May Jagger and Kate Moss – natch.

Of course if the rumours are true, we expect them to be wearing a selection of clothing from British designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen…and the Daily Mirror says it will all be sound tracked to David Bowie’s ‘Fashion’ and ‘Rebel Rebel’.

We also read somewhere that they will each be paid one pound to take part – but after reading so many stories we’re afraid we might have made that bit up. We’ll just have to wait and see!

Let’s create some more iconic fashion memories

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rocks a tribal bomber

Every week we seem to swoon over Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s off-duty outfits and this is one of my favs. I LOVE the subtle tribal print bomber jacket paired with a slubby tee and skinny jeans…oh and the awesome Celine tote. Khaki and deep pink…RHW can rock an unusual colour combo.

RHW I want your wardrobe!

Celebrities’ stylish outfits to walk dogs

Oh to be a super stylish celebrity – they even look good taking the dog for a walk! Olivia Palermo has perfected the city dog stroll, while Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rocks the relaxed beach look….now all I need is a dog 😉

Olivia Palermo walks her dog in heels?!

Style etymology: the cowgirl

While the original cowgirls roamed the dusty plains of America’s mid-west, now-a-days the term is shorthand for daisy duke shorts, a certain kind of denim shirt that is springing up all over the high street again this Spring (lasso one now) and well, a particular outdoorsy but sexy casual style.

Cowgirls captured by Evelyn-Cameron

Believe it or not there is a National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in the US which prove that women did do ranch work, rode horses really well and toiled alongside men- you go girls. In fact, Wyoming gave women the vote back in 1869 and photographer Evelyn Cameron captured women’s contributions on ranches. According to our Googlings, ‘cowgirls’ got their name thanks to the Wild West Shows where they showed off their riding and rope whirling skills and this catapulted women such as Annie Oakley to fame.

Annie Oakley (apparently!)

History lesson almost done- cue the fashion…

By 1900 cowgirls favoured practical skirts with splits to allow them to ride horses without scandalizing (or over exciting) cowboys by borrowing their clothes or flashing their bloomers. The look evolved thanks to rodeo girls in the 1920s and then the skirts morphed into sexier versions in Hollywood with starched white skirts and artfully worn denim.

Pin-up cowgirl

Gail Davis looking chirpy!

We’ve read that modern cowgirls still wear jeans, close-fitting shirts, boots, hats and when needed, chaps and gloves…although doubtfully in the same way as Jessica Simpson and Christina Aguilera.

We’ve rounded up some iconic fashion/cowgirl looks but are still slightly bemused as to how practical and casual clothes favored by hard-working girls turned into such sexualised outfits worn on so many hen nights! Answers on a postcard.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley + Ryan Reynolds’ M&S love-in

Take two of the hottest people on the planet and make an old high street chain sexy. That’s what M&S is up to in its latest installment of the RHW + Ryan Reynolds advert romance. And what’s not to like?

The clothes look great (well, Rosie’s do – is Ryan really old enough to wear dad polo shirts?) and it’s nice pulling into Waterloo station in the morning and seeing giant Rosies and Ryans. Go M&S!

Elle Style Awards: seductive sheer vs playful print

Thank goodness for the Elle Style Awards. We’ve been struggling all week to find amazing red carpet looks for you, despite the Grammys and Baftas both coming around. But finally we have some styles that are original and fun as well as super glamourous.

Plenty of people have gone gaga for Alexa Chung’s trouser suit but (I’m being super brave here) despite loving Alexa and Stella McCartney, who designed the suit, it kind of left me cold…too sensible perhaps?

So instead we bring you the sheer and seductive versus the playful print. Whose team are you on?

#TeamSheer+Seductive

Tali Lennox looks incredible but this dress must have been a nightmare to wear!

Vogue + Florence Welch vs Harper’s + Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

January in magazine world tends to have a dieting theme (boo!) and it’s all about aspirations, resolutions etc so we’re not surprised to see Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gracing the front cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

She looks amazing but has anyone seen her smile of late?!

Bucking the ‘body’ trend, Vogue has put stunning Florence Welch on its front cover (and we definitely need to see the feature on multitasking bags!) The Chloe dress is beautiful and matches Florence’s boho-inspired style but we’d love to see her in something younger and edgier for a change.

Which do you prefer?

WOW!

Do you like it?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley + Burberry

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stole the show at the opening of Burberry’s new store in Paris last night. Check out the amazing SS12 dress.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley opens M&S Paris (take 2)

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley opened Marks & Spencer’s new flagship store in Paris- on the Champs-Élysées no less. It’s been 10 years since M&S fled France – leaving plenty of people hankering after crumpets, M&S underwear and other British delicacies!

There’s also a French M&S website, which should prove popular if queues for the shop are anything to go by….the stretched down the famed Parisian shopping street.

P.S. We bet the dresses that Rosie’s wearing will sell out (especially the beautiful lace number).

Love Rosie's dress (It's from the Autograph collection)

And a bodycon monochrome dress - well done M&S!
