  • The Week’s Top Celeb Goss

    Hi VIPs! Congratulations on finishing yet another working week. Now it’s time to enjoy the weekend – you’ve earned it!

    It’s been quite a busy week in showbiz. These are the stories we’re most excited about:

    Celebrity Big Brother has started – we love Christopher Biggins! But given that Geordie Shore’s Scotty T won last year and Vicky P won I’m A Celeb, Marnie Simpson will probably win



    Dawn O’Porter’s got a pop-up fashion shop at the Gardening Society rooftop on John Lewis Oxford st – Beautiful clothes!


    Pixie Lott’s got some brilliant reviews for her role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s – see her in the West-End before 17 September!


    Bad Moms had it’s LA premiere – we just can’t wait til it’s out in the UK on 26 August.


    It was the Qatar Goodwood Festival and Una Foden looked gorgeous in a black midi dress – this dress is so versatile and perfect for summer occasions

  • Milan Fashion Week Celebs

    Hi VIPs! As soon as one fashion week ends, the circus moves on. Now it’s in Milan and Alexa Chung has jumped in for the ride. She was in New York and London too – doesn’t she have work to do? Salma Hayek was at them both but that’s because she’s married to the CEO of LMVH (Louis Vuitton / Prada etc).

    It’s only just started so there are only a few looks to be seen so far, and then let’s move on to the Live Like a VIP team’s fave looks from London last night. It may not be fashion week any more, but there’s still an atmosphere in our cool capital city.

    Salma Hayek in Milan


    Alexa Chung in Milan


    Dakota Johnson in Milan


    Pixie Lott at the Wonderland magazine party in London


    Selena Gomez on the promo trail in London


    Selena Gomez on the promo trail in London (again!)


    Who do you think looked the best? We loved Selena’s casual look.

    Now have a great day and we’ll be back tomorrow with a full round-up of the most interesting celeb stories of the week.

  • Tuesday Trends: Hot Celebrity Looks

    Hi VIPs! Now Christmas and New Year feels like ages ago, doesn’t it? However, the celebs are partying just as much as ever. I don’t know if they’re drinking – you don’t need alcohol to enjoy yourself – but they are going out, having fun and looking fabulous. Even if you’re January is dry, you don’t need to stay at home being boring.

    As prrof, here’s a look at who’s doing what in showbiz:



    It was the Golden Globes in Hollywood on Sunday night, which was A’list central. Cara Delevigne, Georgina Chapman, Jennifer Lopez and Rita Ora made one call partnership on the sofa at the after-party. I wonder what they chatted about! I also wonder how JLo looks so youthful in her 40s.

    It was good to see Cara and Rita friendly again! The two used to call each other wifey and then lost contact. They look happy together now don’t they?


    Benedict Cumberbatch photo-bombed Meryl Streep. He’s doing this so much it’s known as the Cumber-bomb in film circles now. Funny!


    Kate Hudson did an Elizabeth Hurley in a Versace safety pin dress but I think she wears it better as its harder to wear white. You can tell she works out and has her own workout wear, can’t you?


    Kelly Brook looked quite sophisticated at a viewing party. She’s just been named the new face of the Atkins diet but does she really need it?


    Taylor Swift looked gorgeous in yellow with her good pal Lorde. I love it when celebs wear bright colours in Winter!


    To be honest, I could go on about the Golden Globes fashion all day. You can see 10 more of the top outfits in a blog post I wrote for Very.co.uk.

    And finally, I have to admire Pixie Lott’s outfit to a LCM: fashion show. It’s brave to go boho, don’t you think?


    Now have a stylish day! We’ll be back tomorrow with more celeb goss.

  • Red Hot Looks Of The Week

    Hi VIPs! You’ve made it to the weekend, which means I think it’s time for a celebration!

    If you’re going out partying and need some inspiration then I have just for you. I’ve had a look at what the celebs have been wearing this week and noticed there’s an awful lot of red. I know there are a lot of pronouncements that colours are the new black, but I think in this case red is better than black, it’s not the new anything.  If you don’t believe me, check out:

    Frankie Sandford and Pixie Lott

    Kate Hudson (this is a Temperley London jumpsuit, in case you want to copy)


    Kimberley Garner (I’m not sure what she does now either but I know she looks good doing it)


    X Factor’s Lauren Platt


    Abby Clancey in Cosmo magazine


    Now have a great weekend and if you don’t do it in red, make sure you do it in style! It’s up to you how much fun you have so do what makes you happy.

    See you on Monday for more celeb goss. In the meantime, tweet me or tag me in Instagram – Livelikeavip on both.

  • Milan Fashion Week…And Pants

    Hey VIPs! No sooner has London Fashion Week finished then the circus rolls over to Milan. The best show so far has been Fendi and we have photos from that below.

    But first, we are debating about David Gandy. He’s just launched a collection of underwear for M&S, with affordable prices from £20. BUT he stood among lots of full size posters of himself in his pants for the main launch event. We love David, but this vanity turns us off a bit. What do you think?


    Now onto fashion week and Fendi, which had all the top girls walking for it. I’m talking Kendall Jenner, Georgia May Jagger and Cara Delevigne. Check this out:





    It looked like Cara was a bit hungry before the show…but with a figure like that she can get away with eating the whole thing can’t she?


    Watching from the FROW was Pixie Lott. Getting her legs out….again! I guess if you had legs like that you’d want to show them off wouldn’t you?


    Now have a fantastic weekend and we’ll be back on Monday for some more gossip of who’s doing what and wearing what.

  • Thursday Hot Celebrity News

    Hey VIPs! Thursday is the new Friday so it’s practically the weekend already. How fast does time go? And this leads me smoothly onto my first showbiz story. Kim Kardashian must be thinking the same thing as her half-sister Kendall was just 11 when Keeping Up With The Kardashians started filming. Now 19, she towers over Kimmy. I bet Kim’s jealous!


    The most scandalous story of the day is that Eva Mendes is rumoured to be pregnant. The baby daddy is Ryan Gosling if early reports are to be believed. Watch this space for more updates. That would be one GORGEOUS baby!


    Vanessa Hudgens has had all her hair chopped off. I do like this bob on her. It almost makes me want to get a hair cut. What do you think?


    Back to British gossip, Fazer from N-Dubz has said the band will get back together when Tulisa’s court case is over. At the Mailbu rum party to celebrate National Pina Colada day, Fazer said the band would start to write new material in 2015. I hope that happens!


    Meanwhile Pixie Lott has just finished her long awaited third album. To celebrate she went on a mini-break with her model boyfriend Oliver Cheshire. They look so loved up! I wonder if there will be wedding bells soon?



    So that’s it for now. Have a fantastic day and if you want to chat about any celeb subjects then email me @livelikeavip

  • Get The Look: Festival Style Side Plait



    A side plait is the hair style of choice for celebrities when they want toget their hair away from their face without scraping it up. It’s neat, it’s feminine and Tatiana Karelina, CEO of Tatiana Hair Extensions, showed me that it’s easy for anyone to recreate the look.


    In just four key stages, with the help from a clip-in extension, I followed in the footsteps of celebs like Rihanna and Pixie Lott and it took less than five minutes.


    Let’s talk through each stage…


    Stage 1: Start by sectioning the hair. Make it 2-3 cm to the side of the centre parting.


    Stage 2: Use a clip to secure the sectioned hair. Backcomb the top of the section (as it will mean the clip-in has something to attach to)


    Stage 3: Attach the clip-in to the top of the section. (Each of the Tatiana Hair Extensions clip-ins are hand-sewn using human hair of the highest quality. You do not have to braid them as they come straight but they are super-easy to plait)

    Stage 4: Start to braid the clip-in, mixing it with your own hair


    Step 5: Continue braiding and secure with an elastic band.

    This is what the clip-in looks like when it’s plaited before going in the hair. However, it’s best to braid it once it’s in the hair as it means it will be more4 secure. Notice this is a shade lighter than my natural hair so that it stands out from the front and side.



    Just in case you didn’t get all that, here’s a video to explain the process:
