    Billboard Music Awards 2017: Red Carpet Fashion

    Hello! We’re back from our hols and straight into an awards ceremony, starting the week as we mean to go on. The Billboard Music Awards, which takes place in Las Vegas, is always a star-studded event attended by the movers and shakers of the music business and anyone who’s ever been at the top of the US charts (or wants to crack the US charts).

    With Rita Ora, Nicole Scherzinger, Kate Beckinsale, Bebe Rexha and more in attendance this year, there were some pretty racy outfits. These ladies have figures to die for and they dressed to show them off. Sometimes less is more when it comes to clothes, especially if you’ve been working on your summer body.

    Here’s how they wowed on the red carpet at the awards to give us confidence to try the same:
    Rita Ora


    Vanessa Hudgens


    Bebe Rexha


    Lea Michele


    Hailee Steinfeld


    Nicole Scherzinger 


    Kate Beckinsale


    What do you think of the stars’ outfits? Would you be brave enough to wear something like that? The LLAVIP team say – just do it! If you believe you can pull it off then you can. It’s all about attitude!

    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: Golden Globes Black Dresses

    Hi VIPs! How’s your week going? Is it time for a break to think about something fun and glamorous? Then we have some fabulous fashion to inspire you.

    I know we wrote about The Golden Globes yesterday, but even we have to admit that some of the dresses are too outrageous for us to wear in the UK. We’re much more excited about some of the after-party fashion, as we spotted some outfits that are more wearable. Black dresses – maxi and mini – hug everyone’s curves, flatter the figure and there are so many styles there’s one to suit everyone. This is what we liked from the after-parties:

    Nicole Scherzinger 

    Check out the plunging v-neck and the embellishment by the breast area. Va va voom!

    Mel B

    We like the train on this maxi dress. Also, the material is nice and shiny and we like sparkly things.

    Vanessa Hudgens

    The mesh detail on this maxi dress gives it a 1920s vintage appeal. Gorgeous!

    Corinne Fox

    Jamie Fox’s daughter changed from a gold maxi dress at the awards to a black mini dress for the after-party. We prefer the black by far. The skirt was so dramatic and perfect for her long, lean legs.

    Lady Gaga

    We did cover this yesterday but it’s so beautiful we wanted to show it again. Bodycon is back!

    What was your fave black dress? Time to plan your next party?

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

  • Weekend Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! How was everyone’s weekend? Good we hope. Here’s some of latest showbiz gossip to get your week started off on the right note.

    Victoria Beckham is apparently having her tattoos removed as it interferes with her image as a ‘businesswoman’. They do appear to be considerably faded recently.

    David Beckham on the other hand looked incredible at the launch of a new H&M store in China. Definitely working the sailor look!

    Harry Styles reportedly spent the night with Victoria’s Secrets angel Sara Sampio after they were spotted kissing outside a New York hotel. Possible new romance?

    Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophia have welcomed a baby boy. Congratulations!

  • VIP Workout: A To Zen Of Yoga Book

    I’ve learned a lot about yoga in the past year. I started it to try  to help my rehabilitation from the leg injury I sustained while running and I discovered there are people of all shapes and sizes in the classes. That’s the same when it comes to the VIPs who practise yoga. There’s everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Scherzinger to the Australian rugby team.



    The problem I find with yoga is there are so many variations it can be difficult to know where to start. My main motivation is to heal my leg injury, but I know others do it to beat stress while others escape to a peaceful place to lick their wounds after heartbreak.

    I used to think it required a lot of trialling different yoga classes to find one that suited me, until I met Sarah Tucker. She’s an author, travel writer and broadcaster and a yoga expert, who’s just written a book called the A to Zen of Yoga.


    Sarah and I went on a trip to Malta together (that’s where she’s jumping in the fun photo above) and she told me all about the book. There are certain poses that aid specific situations and it’s all detailed inside. The cobra pose, the tree pose and the pigeon pose are all good for different things.

    The launch was just last week, but there’s already positive feedback for it. Dr Patrick Bowler, acclaimed cosmetic surgeon who wrote the introduction of the book, said “I may be shooting myself in the foot here, but yoga is better than the knife.   You just need the right teacher and Sarah is the right teacher.”

    Comedienne Helen Lederer has a lot of praise for Sarah’s methods, judging by the front cover of the book.



    You can follow the poses in this book anywhere so you can do a pose to fight jet lag in your hotel room or you can satiate your appetite in your living room. This is especially good if, like me, you’re a Beginner and intimidated by those super flexible types that can slip into each pose seamlessly.

    If you’ve always wanted to follow in the celebrities footsteps by doing yoga, buying this book is a very cheap way to start!

    Available at Amazon, £9.99

  • Weekend Showbiz Round-Up

    Hi VIPs! How was your weekend? Let’s start our week in style by having a look at what the celebs got up to and seeing what they wore to do it.


    Kim Kardashian wore silver leggings to Paris Fashion Week. That’s one statement outfit when she has a bum that bulbous!


    Lady Gaga, on the other hand, looked gorgeous at PFW. Do you like the jumpsuit? We do.


    But I don’t know what happened to Rihanna at Paris Fashion Week. She looks exhausted.


    Back to Essex, TOWIEs Georgia looks better than Rihanna. What do you think?


    While Nicole Scherzinger shows Lewis Hamilton what he’s missing in a figure hugging white outfit. There’s no better revenge than looking fabulous!

    Now have a great day. We’ll have some more celeb goss for you tomorrow – the day’s most popular showbiz news all in one place.
