    Paris Fashion Week Highlights

    Hi VIPs! I’ve done a roundup of Paris already but that was after Day 1 and since then there’s been so much more.  Personally, I’m not a big fan of trawling through all the show reports (if you’re interested you’ll find that Vogue do that the best) but I do like to see pretty things and also shocking things. I mean, we all need to look at some odd things to make us realise that trying hard does not always equal style. If in doubt then go with your instincts…

    Fashion lecture over, this is what the LLAVIP team think stood out during Paris Fashion Week.

    (1) Balmain


    The controversy may have been on Kim Kardashian at Balmain as it was the show that she attended practically naked and where she got attacked by a weirdo Ukranian celeb-hassler, but this overshadows how wearable the clothes were. I’d totally were the looks to parties and I loved the yellow dress above, although I understand not everyone would agree…

    (2) Celine


    Kanye West attended the show looking like he was wearing a dressing gown, which annoyed me until I saw the clothes. As the models came down the runaway in what looked like pyjamas and dressing gowns, I thought Kanye’s actually a fashion genius. He was bang on trend. (Although I’m not sure it will take off?)


    And this one really looks like pyjamas….


    (3) Christian Dior


    This was even weirder than Celine! Bed shirts and rags made from bed sheets anyone?

    (4) Vivienne Westwood


    Aside from the clown make-up and the fact she didn’t show in London, Vivienne’s show was beautiful. The theme was Garden of Eden and it was deliciously wicked with the use of texture and fabrics.

    (5) Chloe

    paris-chloe This was my favourite show of all. The boho is back but better than ever with beautiful cuts and slashes and gorgeous gladiator sandals throughout.

    Paris Fashion Week Roundup

    Hi VIPs! Who’s in the mood to see some beautiful things? Paris Fashion Week is always the one that has the dreamy, flattering, couture outfits as opposed to London’s edgier looks. So as it’s the weekend, let’s have a little time out to look at something pretty:

    Kendall Jenner for Balmain


    Other Balmain models (I just love the structure of the clothes)


    Kim Kardashian West (I do think she has the figure to pull this off)


    Olivia Palermo (she always gets it right)


    Roland Mouret model 1 (no wonder Victoria Beckham copied him at the start)


    Roland Mouret model 2 (he just knows a woman’s figure)


    What did you think? Tweet us @livelikeavip

    This is by no means a full round-up of the fashion, which you can find at places like Grazia, just the clothes we like the most. We cherry pick the best bits so you don’t have to scroll through the yawn clothes / stories to get to the good ones!

    Drink Like A VIP: Moscato Cocktails

    Kanye West has rapped about it, Nicki Minaj has raved about it and the ladies of the Desperate Housewives cast are downing it by the bucketload – Moscato is fast becoming the VIPs drink of choice. Have you tried it yet? If not, you are missing out as I can tell you it’s so tasty it doesn’t really feel like you are drinking wine. Personally, I’ve started to prefer standard wine for dinner and Moscato for partying!

    I recently attended a wine-tasting event by Barefoot Wine, where I tried all their flavours of Moscato – white, rose, ruby red and sparkling rose – and I actually couldn’t work out what I liked the most. It really was that good. But because we like cocktails at Live Like a VIP, here’s some inspiration about how to drink it.

    Barefoot Pink Moscato Ingredients:
    250ml Barefoot Pink Moscato
    70g of strawberries
    70g of pineapple
    250 ml of orange juice
    1. Place strawberries, fresh pineapple, orange juice and ice in blender and blend down.
    2. Pour in 250ml of Barefoot Pink Moscato.
    3. Pour contents into two glasses and enjoy.



    Barefoot Pinot Grigio Beachcomber Ingredients:
    750ml Barefoot Pinot Grigio (1 bottle)
    900g of frozen or fresh pineapple, diced
    700ml coconut milk
    Fresh pineapple chunks for garnish
    1. Put all three ingredients in a blender
    2. Blend until thoroughly smooth & garnish with chunks of fresh pineapple

    The first cocktail is inpsired by Madonna, as the Barefoot cocktail makers came up with it around the time of Madge’s birthday. The second drink is inspired by Beyonce and we can totally imagine her and Jay-Z knocking it back on a super yacht somewhere.

    Which one do you think looks the best?
