London Fashion Week has been long awaited by many designers, bloggers, buyers and general fashion enthusiasts and the AW12 did not disappoint. It was our first time attending and we didn’t know what to expect but not only was Somerset House the perfect venue to hold such an event – the weather was blooming! Below is a mesh of our streetstyle favourites and I think it is safe to say that this year it was all about the hidden gems, those little extra touches that made them from normal to fashionistas!
The hats, the jewellery, the bags, the ankle socks it all made such a big difference to the overall scheme of the outfits and we loved it all! Overall outtake from LFW? You can never wear too many accessories 😉
So the current theme right now around the celebrity world of fashion is the mid-drift cut out dress. The likes of Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Frieda Pinto are all rocking it but what do you all think? We personally think if you are not SUPER skinny and tall you just won’t look right. Check out the perfect image comparison between super slim Gwyneth Paltrow and curvy Kim Kardashian sporting the same dress. On the hanger I am sure it looked appealing; daring, seductive yet classy – so a perfect choice for a red carpet event. However, Kim, who has a figure envied by millons, just looks uncomfortable and rather shockingly bad in this dress. Gwyneth on the other hand, who has a figure about as interesting and shapely as a flatline, looks sexy and stylish – HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?!?!
So overall the mid-drift dress….wear it if you have the guts because you have to be of a certain physique to ever look good in it!
