  • 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

    aleha1

     

    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.

    Rihanna

    ri1

     

    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

    kim1

     

    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

    christine1

     

    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.

    casey_batchelor_celeb31_dress___94044_zoom

     

    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.

  • Get The Look: Rochelle’s Exact Dress

    Rochelle Humes looked just divine at the Glamour Woman Of The Year awards as you can see on the right side of the photo below. Wait a minute – isn’t she wearing the same thing in the photo on the left? Yes, that’s because the dress is from her own fashion range and she wants to show off just how lovely it looks when worn to a posh event. The Live Like a VIP team applauds her.

    roch-fashion

    If we’d designed a dress as lovely as this, we’d want to show it off too. It’s the ideal colour for summer and really complements Rochelle’s tanned skin. There’s a sultry split in the left side so that you can flash a bit of leg and the material looks like it feels amazing next to your skin. You’ll look HOT in this but you won’t feel warm or sweaty as the material is floaty and will keep you cool.

    So where can we get our hands on it? We’ve done a bit of research and found out the dress is the Rochelle Humes lace trim slip dress from Very.co.uk. It’s excellent value at £69, meaning that we can afford a dress and shoes for less than £100. Perfect for summer birthday parties, proms or work parties. No matter where you wear it, everyone will ask where it’s from. What do you think?

  • Get The Look: Kylie’s Dungarees

    What do you think of dungarees? How about denim dungarees? We were sceptical until we saw Kylie rock a pair on a night out with her fiance Joshua Sasse. She makes them look cute and chic, with white trainers and a classic white vest top.

    kylie-dungarees

    To copy her style for less, I recommend Levi’s denim overalls, which are £57 from Very.co.uk. Add a simple white vest that can be bought as cheaply as £4 at Matalan. Finish off with some white trainers. I like the Rocket Dog magic plimsolls as the platform sole gives you a bit of height. They’re £40 from Very.co.uk

    Would you wear denim dungarees? Tweet us your thoughts – we’re @livelikeavip

  • Get The Look: Rosie Huntington Whiteley

    Rosie Huntington Whiteley is a huge style icon in the Live Like a VIP offices. She’s sexy without being trashy and edgy without being OTT.

    Recently, we spotted her out and about in a gorgeous Spring outfit, that we knew we wanted to copy.

    rosie-fashion

    Sadly, we don’t have a supermodel bank balance, so we worked out where to get this look on the High Stree. Her dress is like the House of Sunny Shift Tie Dress, which is a bargain at £23. To step out in style, try the tan suede peep toe heels from River Island, which are £65. A YSL clutch would be nice, but it doesn’t have to be designer to look gorgeous. For an equally stylish alternative, I like the laser cut clutch bag from Very, which is just £24!

    What do you think of this look? It’s so exciting to think that Spring is finally coming!

  • London Fashion Week: Nina Naustdal

    London Fashion Week is a whirlwind of fashion shows and parties taking place back to back and sometimes simultaneously. However, one show I always make an effort to attend is the Nina Naustdal catwalk as Nina has a reputation for designing glamorous clothes that flatter a woman’s figure.

    Also, she’s recently started a childrenswear line, and it’s lovely to see the little ones walk down the runway in all their finery.

    The Autumn / Winter 2016 Ready To Wear collection, the Spring / Summer 2016 Couture Collection and the Childrenswear collection were all shown during one fabulous evening in London’s Chelsea. These are our favourite looks:

    They’re all so feminine and pretty! Which one did you like best?

    And here’s a cute pic of the childrenswear collection to melt your heart:

    IMG_6749

    One thing I can guarantee is I will always attend Nina’s fashion shows in future because clothes like this make me happy I’m a woman and get to dress up.

    Make sure to visit the Nina Naustdal website to see more of her gorgeous clothes.

  • Get The Look: Kendall Jenner

    Kendall Jenner has managed to cross over from reality TV star to bona fide fashion model. She’s a style icon in her own right and she looks cool even when she’s not on the catwalk. She’s not edgy like her younger sister Kylie, she’s not over the top like her older sister Kim, but she’s relaxed and cool and looks totally comfortable in her skin.

    When I saw her photographed leaving the Bottega Veneta fashion show in Milan, I wanted her outfit as it’s so practical for city living. Dress it up with heels for the evening (or the office) and you have an outfit that can take you from day to night and leave you feeling calm and relaxed. Here’s how to do it:

    kendall2

    The coat I’ve found is the Veronica Camel Oversized Coat – £20 from Pretty Little Thing. The shirt is the French Connection Polly Plains blouse, which is £45 from Very.co.uk and the gorgeous cropped trousers are £19.99 from New Look.

    What do you think? Would you wear something like this to start Spring in style?

  • Very.co.uk Date Night Outfits

    I love Valentine’s Day! I love the anticipation, I love the flowers, I love the chocolates and I love making an effort to show my feelings for someone. So when fashion brand Very.co.uk hosted a Valentine’s themed party to showcase it’s lovely outfits, I couldn’t wait to join in!

    Reality TV stars Ferne McCann (TOWIE and I’m a Celeb) and Ashley James (Made In Chelsea) were among the fashionistas ogling the new clothes at the party, as the new outfits are perfect for making good impressions – in TV as well as in real-life.

    very-valentines

    In the above photo, Ferne’s wearing the V by Very roll neck top and the Rochelle Humes culotte trousers. Ashley’s red top is the V by Very fluted waffle jacket

    However, these are my personal top 5 outfits from the night:

    (1) V by Very suedette jacket

  • Get The Look: Khloe K’s Exact Leggings

    Khloe Kardashian is the ultimate gym bunny. She seems to visit at least once a day and when she can’t attend she has a personal trainer to put her through her paces while she’s on holiday. There’s no rest for the wicked and that’s why Khloe’s managed to achieve such a ripped, toned body as well as lose a lot of weight over the past 12 months. If you want something, you have to work for it!

    However, there’s no reason why you have to dress down in the gym. Khloe looks just as fabulous while she’s working to achieve her figure as she does when she’s showing off the results afterwards. And the good news is we can all copy one of her recent gym outfits almost exactly.

    khloe-k-gym

    She’s wearing Nike Pro Engineered Giraffe Training Tights and you can get a pair that’s exactly the same as hers for just £39.99. The top is the Nike dri-fit half knit zip and then the look is finished with the  colour co-ordinated  Nike Free TR 5 Flyknit trainers. 

    top-nike

    Wearing something like this would inspire me to go to the gym more often, safe in the knowledge that I look hot while doing so. And if I end up with  a figure like Khloe’s after then that would be a bonus. What do you think?
