    Celeb Party Dresses: Get The Look

    Now we’re midway through December, we have seen A LOT of party dresses. For the celebs, the Christmas parties started back in December and now we’ve moved on to award ceremonies like the British Fashion Awards, the Critic’s Choice Awards and the BBC Music Awards. To say it’s a busy time of year is an understatement.

    However, the busier it is means the more inspiration we can take from the celebs’ outfits. We’ve picked our top 3 most Christmassy looking outfits because to look at too many dresses can be overwhelming, We just want the best!

    (1) Fearne Cotton at the BBC Music Awards



    Wow – what a party dress. You couldn’t get more festive than red AND sequins. And to top it off, you could get a similar dress for £85 – the Jessica Wright Sistaglam dress from Debenhams.

    (2)  Naomi Campbell at the British Fashion Awards



    She’s one of the original supers and she looks stunning in lace! Lace is ideal for the party season and this is better than most as it’s just so sexy without giving too much away due to the suit underneath. You can create a similar effect of hinting at what’s underneath for less than £50! The Ebonie and Ivory low black lace dress from ASOS is £48.

    (3) Lucy Mecklenburgh at the Pride of Sport Awards


    We just can’t help it – red is the best colour for party season. Lucy’s dress has a hint of the Spanish flamenco about it and the split at the front is just so pretty, showing off her legs slightly but not too much. The best thing about it is that we can copy her exact dress – it’s the V by Very origami pleat dress from Very.co.uk and it’s great value at £85.

    Which of the 3 did you like the best?

    Trends: Jumpsuits To Party In

    Hi VIPs! Do you want to look like a celebrity this Christmas party season? Do you like taking risks? If so, it’s time to try the jumpsuit.

    Here are 3 ways the celebs are wearing them – in white, strapless and with long sleeves:

    Cara Delevingne (strapless)



    The supermodel wears a lot of jumpsuits, but one of my favourites is this strapless black jumpsuit as it’s daring and bold – just like Cara. It’s also clearly a jumpsuit that you’d wear on a night out! It’s like the Miss Selfridge bandeau tux tie waist jumpsuit – £55 from Very.co.uk.

    Malin Ackerman (white)



    Malin wears  a white jumpsuit with a plunging v-neck detail. It reminds me of the Skyla white choker v-neck jumpsuit, which is an absolute steal at just £15 from Miss Pap.

    Nicole Scherzinger (long sleeves)



    The X Factor judge always looks gorgeous and what I like about her long sleeve jumspuit is that you can dress it up or down. You can wear it to meetings or you can wear it on a night out. A similar one is the wrap long sleeve jumpsuit from Missguided, which is also a bargain at £18.

    Which one’s your fave?

    Tuesday Trends: Amazing Ankle Boots

    Hi VIPs! It’s that time of week where we look at trends. Last week, we did the humble beanie hat that celebs are wearing to keep their heads nice and toasty this winter in a cool, casual way. This week, we want to do something more glamorous!

    We’ve been studying lots of photos of celebrities out and about and one thing that makes us excited is seeing that there are some fabulous ankle boots around at the moment. These are boots that will make doing any daytime chore feel more exciting as you’ll be doing it in style, but these are also boots that you can get away with wearing on a night out as they look so smart.

    Let’s get straight to what the celebs are wearing and look at how to copy:

    (1) Gigi Hadid – the suede ankle boot


    A suede boot is the perfect day to night boot and works with skirts as well as trousers. Olive green looks lovely with most colour outfits – try the Clarks Breccan myth ankle boots, which are just £62 from Very.co.uk

    (2) Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – the above-ankle boot


    An ankle boot that goes just above the knee with a high heel and a strap detail screams sex-appeal. The wearer is strong and in control and does not compromise. Rosie’s boots are similar to the Jones Bootmaker’s Natalia ankle boots (£70).

    (3) Rihanna – the lace ankle boot


    A lace ankle boot is for people who like to be ahead of the crowd. It’s edgy while still being feminine and makes jeans look a lot more fabulous. Get the look for just £75 at Topshop.

    What was your favourite style?

    Tuesday Trends: Winter Beanie Hats

    HI VIPs, Happy November! We hope you treated yourself to something special last night. If not, do it tonight. It’s Tuesday, what more of an excuse do you need?

    It’s the time of week when we look at trends and as we’ve done a lot of party dresses recently, we wanted to look at something a little bit more practical for everyday use. Step forward the humble beanie. It may look average, but the celebs love them. That’s because they’re easy to wear, warm and snug – like a hug for the head.

    Let’s have a look at the stars for inspiration:



    Rihanna’s cool, street grey beanie is like the Monki ribbed logo beanie hat from ASOS. It’s simple but with a small logo – understated but screams attitude!

    Taylor Swift


    Match your lipstick to your hat like Taylor! Her red hat is very similar to a red hat that’s just £7.50 at M&S




    Ciara’s so pretty and while we may not be blessed with her genes, we can at least get a hat like hers. The black Original beanie hat from New Look is an absolute bargain at £7.99.

    Irina Shayk


    Model Irina Shayk knows a lot about fashion and she’s wearing a beanie so it must be cool. Hers is like the North Face cable minna beanie from Very.co.uk

    Which one do you like most?

    Have a great day and we’ll be back tomorrow with some celebrity and music news.

    Celeb Trends: Over The Knee Boots

    Hi VIPs! How’s your week going? The weather’s definitely feeling fresher and crisper now , isn’t it?

    This is an excuse to indulge in some new clothes to keep us warm and cosy this Autumn.

    The first thing to think about is footwear because if our feet feel good then we do too. Also, if you have fabulous shoes, then the rest of the outfit takes a back seat. This season is all about the over the knee boot. Let’s have a look at how the celebs are wearing them:

    Rita Ora


    Rita looks stunning in suede boots. They remind me of the Head Over Heels Skylar over the knee boots from Very.co.uk

    Gigi Hadid



    Gigi Hadid shows that over the knee boots look as good for day as they do for night. Try the Carvela tie over the knee boots from Very.co.uk.




    Rihanna’s over the knee boots stand out for their PVC style. They’re like the Public Desire Halloween point black heeled boots from Asos and they are a bargain at £49.99.

    Jessica Alba


    Jesscia Alba looks pretty and feminine in her over the knee boots, showing that you don’t just have to wear then on a night out. The bow detail reminds me the River Island tie back over the knee boots that are just £75 from Asos.

    Whose boots do you envy the most? They’re not super expensive, are they? Treat yourself now and you’ll get more use out of them this Autumn!

    Have a great day and we’ll be back tomorrow with a round-up of celebrity gossip.

  • Wear Denim Shorts Like The Celebs

    When the weather’s warm you don’t want to sweat in jeans. But you do want to look cool, without it seeming as if you’ve tried to hard. How do you do that?

    We looked at pics of celebs enjoying leisure time and we found a trend – denim shorts. They suit all ages and personalities as they come in such different styles.

    These are our five fave ways to wear denim shorts like the stars:

    Alesha Dixon



    Alesha travelled to Ibiza to help Louis Walsh in the judges houses round of X Factor. Denim shorts are perfect for travelling in. Hers are like the River Island high waisted ripped denim shorts.

    Laura Whitmore



    Laura looked sensational at the V Festival. Her indigo coloured shorts reminds me of the V by Very high waisted frill shorts.




    Wow! Talk about attitude. Rihanna looked every inch the bad gal at V. The shorts remind me of the Zoe distressed denim shorts from Boohoo

    Kim Kardashian



    Mum-of-two Kim showed that she’s every inch the milf in denim hotpants. For a similar pair, check out the New Look light blue high waisted denim shorts for just £15.

    Christine Brinkley



    Christine’s 62, but she has fantastic legs so why not show them off? I think white denim always looks fantastic – I love the £7.99 H&M white denim shorts.

    Whose shorts do you like the most? We think Laura’s looked the best as she matched them with cool boots and a fabulous jacket.

    Now have a great day and we’ll be back tomorrow with a round up of music and entertainment news.

  • Get The Look: Casey’s Exact Dress

    Floral dresses are perfect for wedding season as they’re bright and cheerful – just the vibe that brides want to encourage on their big day. Casey Batchelor’s blue floral dress is really flattering with its bodycon shape, but as it’s a knee length dress she still looks sophisticated.



    The LLAVIP team did some research and found that the exact dress just £30 from AX Paris. She wore it to a celebrity party at Champney’s health spa, so if you wore it to a summer wedding, you’d feel like you got the celebrity look for less. However, it stands out on it’s own – I’d wear it whether or not a celeb had worn it as the colours are so pretty.




    With this price, you still have £20 to spend on a pair of heels and your entire outfit would be just £50. It’s something you could use year after year to a few weddings/ summer parties.

    What do you think?
