Pearl Lowe for Peacocks Christmas 2010 collection

10 Nov

Pearl Lowe has done some exquisite vintage style dresses for Peacocks this year. The first to make waves among style lovers was the black polyester and lace frock in the A/W 10 collection. For a dress sold for £35 by budget retailer Peacocks, it grabbed a lot of attention and featured in places only designer dresses dare tread.

Following her success with A/W, she’s just unveiled a stunning Christmas collection in another collaboration with Peacocks. All in line with her signature vintage style, the inspiration this time was from the twenties, fifties and sixties (eras we love and smack on trend). The collection featured decadent lace, pleated and crochet knit dresses plus some faux fur, all under £60. They were charmingly modelled by her daughter Daisy Lowe and unveiled yesterday at the Connaught Hotel, Mayfair London.

Now, it only makes sense that Peacock’s customer service has been inundated with calls for pre-order, this collection is a complete vintage knock out.

One more way to style that dress

9 Nov

The stylist at Asos did an amazing job in styling (no pun intended) this understated 2-in-1 pencil dress. It was combined with a blazer, floppy hat, tights and black high heels. The monochromatic theme of the accessories made sure the dress still stood out.

The gorgeous styling transformed the dress from basic to sleek chic in a flash.

Oprah Winfrey in Victoria Beckham + a VB retrospective

28 Oct

I’m a confirmed lover of Victoria Beckham’s line, she won my heart since the A/W 10 collection. Now it’s no news that the line made headlines again (pardon the pun) a few days ago. Talkshow queen, Oprah Winfrey wore one of the dresses from Fall 2010 to receive an award in California.

Must be exciting times for Mrs Beckham, her dream of dressing curvy ladies is becoming reality, and who better to make this happen than Oprah. She looked amazing in the dress, even better than the model wearing it on the catwalk. These dresses sure flatter the curvy.

So i decided to do a retrospective of the lovely ladies who have worn Victoria Beckham dresses in the recent past. She definitely has got herself a sizeable following, from actresses to models. The structured, flattering fit and polished look of the dresses make them perfect for all super glam seekers. I especially loved Danii Minogue’s recent appearance in VB on the X-factor.

But nobody wears the styles better than the designer herself; she rocks her dresses to absolute perfection. I’ll almost say she doesn’t need to spend millions on Ad campaigns, she’s doing a brilliant job advertising the line and getting tons of free publicity for it.
