Pretty In Pink

As style icon Audrey Hepburn once said: ‘I believe in pink…’

From the lightest loveliest pastel to delicious vivid shades of candy – pink always packs the perfect punch.

This coming Spring / Summer season, many Designers have embraced this charming tone – perfect for a sweet Summer romance. Not too girly and not too precious – pink is bold, optimistic and arrestingly alluringly.

From Yves Saint Laurent to Ralph Lauren, Chanel to Prada – pink enlivens the senses and evokes a nostalgic sweetness. My favourite though, the bold, bright shade of candy at Valentino – delectable enough to eat!

On the runway, pink was worn with black to add a toughened edge to this adorable tone. Or why not be daring and simply wear pink from head to toe…

Prada Swimwear Shape Up

Prada’s exquisite curve-accentuating, bedazzled bathing suits have become the shimmering icons of Spring / Summer dressing.

These colourful, embellished bathing suits have captured the hearts of Magazine Editors and Stylists around the globe. Racking up countless Magazine covers and editorials, these vintage-inspired swim suits are the toast of the season.

Appearing on the catwalk of the Prada Spring / Summer 2012 collection; Miuccia Prada took inspiration from 60’s Americana; fast cars; and a celebration of feminine sweetness. Deep v-necklines and strategically placed lines of colourful crystals drew eyes inwards – accentuating the waist and emphasising feminine curves.

Created with graduating colours (beige, pink, red and black); crocheted flowers; or diamante crystals; these bathing suits have such beauty, texture, and craftsmanship one could be mistaken for hanging them on a wall rather than wearing them by the pool. Perfect then that the Prada one-piece is the cover subject of the season…

Do you covet the Prada one-piece? xx

Zooey Deschanel

Known for her electric, vintage inspired wardrobe; Zooey Deschanel is fast becoming a modern-day style icon.

Feminine, sweet and unmistakably cool, Zooey Deschanel has a positively charming style.

A delicate, daring risk taker, Deschanel chooses vintage-inspired flattering silhouettes for day and night.  She is often in dresses and flirty skirts which are clinched in at the waist. She favours Mary-Jane heels and black opaque and coloured tights. With a love of bows and ribbons – her looks are often finished with a sweet belt or a headband in her hair. Floral accents, lace and hats also accentuate her unique style.

As a face of Rimmel, Deschanel always has flawless hair and make-up. With a nod to 60’s sexy mod styling; sultry black eyeliner or a striking red pout are her beauty essentials. Beautiful bangs are also a signature component in her darling style.

Her love of fashion also extends to shopping, Deschanel has said:“I go shopping every week, literally. There’s something about getting a new dress or shirt that makes you feel that extra 20 percent better.”
