  • Weekend Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! How’s everyone feeling? The sun was out this weekend, so let’s hope that summery glow lingers throughout the week. Here’s some showbiz gossip to make you feel extra special.

    Joey Essex has confirmed that he is in fact seeing Sam Faiers and has strong feelings for her once again. Sam was his first serious relationship and the pair started seeing each other again after her Crohn’s disease diagnosis.

    Joey Essex Sam Faiers

    Sam’s sister, Billie Faiers on the other hand showed off her baby bump in a selfie before she headed out to spend time with her friends. That’ll be one yummy mummy!

    Billier Faiers

    Lauren Silverman took a break for mummy duties as she stepped out in a LBD alongside Simon Cowell. The pair headed to London’s Palladium Theatre to watch the new musical, I Can’t Sing. Hopefully little Eric will be able to sing one day.

    Lauren Silverman

    Kesha looked happy and healthy after she emerged from rehab. She was sporting a top that said ‘I’m a Survivor’ and rainbow hair. She also informed her fans that she’s working on a lot of new music. Well done Kesha!

    Jennifer Hudson is not only an incredible singer and actress but she also has an extremely long tongue! Jennifer recalled a time when a fan asked her to stick her tongue out to identify whether she was the real Jennifer on the Jonathan Ross Show.

    Some more serious images of Miley Cyrus have been released for the new Marc Jacobs campaign. The singer has a backdrop of sand and storm clouds and looks moodily into the distance.

    Shakira has revealed that her boyfriend Gerard Pique has banned her from appearing in raunchy music videos with men. She can now only do them with women, hence her steamy chemistry with Rihanna in the Can’t Remember To Forget You music video.

  • Thursday Celeb Goss (And Freaky Fashion)

    Good morning VIPs! Do you want to start with the good news or the bad? There was a LOT of terrible fashion in celeb land last night. Do not eat when you’re reading this blog post as seeing the photos of the celebs wearing such cringeworthy outfits might make you choke.

    For that reason, I think we should start with the bad. It’s funny. Firstly, top marks to Lily Allen for getting the tube to the Beyonce gig at the O2 (saves on petrol and all that) but what on earth was she wearing? It’s the tacky belt that looks the worst (although the outfit looks like a couple of highlighter pens). And that smug expression? I’m not impressed…

    t-lily-tube

    Helen Flanagan – why are you wearing two tone jeans? Black on one leg and white on the other. And with the scary make-up it reminds me of the cartoon character Beetlejuice.

    t-helen

    And last but not least, I know it’s cool to look weird during fashion week but I thought Rihanna was above following the crowd. Clearly not as she looked just as weird as everyone else sat FROW at the Miu Miu show during Paris Fashion Week.

    ri-ri

    Anyway, I think I’m beginning to sound harsh so here’s a bit of eye candy to lighten the mood. One of my celeb crushes – Duyane ‘The Rock’ Johnson posted a photo of himself enjoying pancakes. I wonder if he ate all those! Did you have a good pancake day?

    rock-pancakes2

     

    Even more happy news – weddings! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have set a date. The wedding of the year (which will hopefully be 3rd time lucky for Kim) will be on 24 May in Paris.

    kim-kanye

    And finally, there’s another take on THAT famous Oscars selfie. There’s a lot going  round (including a Simpsons cartoon one) but the Made in Chelsea one is pretty genius:

    t-chels

     

    So that’s it for today. Enjoy your Thursday knowing the weekend is almost here. What will you be getting up to? Tweet us @livelikeavip and let’s share ideas for a VIP weekend!

  • Tuesday Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hi VIPs! The Oscars are still fresh on everyone’s mind. Check out all the celeb gossip post-Oscars, as well as other news from the world of showbiz!

    Former Westlife member and King of the Jungle Kian Egan has released his new single Home from his solo album which will go on sale March 17th. His wife Jodi Albert also makes an appearance!

    Kian egan

    Lucy Mecklenburgh is on holiday in Miami and she brought her personal trainer along with her! The pair were seen strolling along the beach looking in great shape.

    Lucy Mecklenburgh

    Nichole Scherzinger’s debut range for Missguided is finally here! The 30 piece collection will be on sale next week and is extremely affordable. She describes her range as ‘urban chic’.

    Nicole scherzinger

    Justin Bieber has been gushing about the way Selena Gomez looked at the Oscars. On social media, Justin shared a picture of Selena at the post-Oscar Vanity Fair party and captioned it ‘most elegant princess in the world’. Will there be a reunion in the works? We have to wait and see!

    Selena Gomez

    Social media went crazy with disappointment after Leonardo DiCaprio lost out on an Oscar for the fourth time. There was also hundreds of memes that were shared on-line poking fun at his Oscar loss. Oh maybe next year Leo!

    Leonardo Dicaprio

    Lupita Nyong’o had to be the main attraction of the Oscars night and the next morning she announced on Live with Kelly and Michael that she hadn’t even slept. No doubt she’s running completely off adrenaline and looks fabulous doing so.

    Lupita Nyong'o

    Rihanna was spotted in Paris attending the Stella McCartney show in an oversized green and black print coat and quirky sunglasses. The designer described a ‘fondness’ over the singer and it’s no doubt that Rihanna feels the same way.

    Rihanna

    Do you feel bad for Leo or are you rooting for Lupita to win an Oscar next year too? Drop us your thoughts at @livelikeavip

    Rihanna’s Fishtail Braid vs Amanda Seyfried’s French Braid

    Everybody loves a hair braid, and by everybody I mostly mean Rihanna and Amanda Seyfried in regards to this post!  Hair braids are easy-to-do (with a little practice) and can immediately transform your look whether it’s for a girly night out or an important meeting at work.

     

    Rihannnnannaa

    The hair chameleon that is Rihanna showing us all exactly how a fishtail braid should look!

     

    For those of you out there who aren’t familiar with the fishtail braid (and shame on you, if that’s you!), the fishtail braid is pretty easy to create once you’ve done it a couple of times.  It’s simply a case of sectioning your hair into two sections and taking a small section of hair from one side and bringing it over to the other side – you alternate this method until you reach the end of your hair.  There are soooo many fishtail braid tutorials on YouTube (which is how I learnt to do this hairstyle myself and honestly, if I can do it then anybody can!) which are incredibly easy to follow so you’ve really got no excuse for not giving this mermaid-esque hairstyle a fair chance.  There is even a fishtail braid tool available called the Scunci Criss Crosser (RRP £6) to help those of use who aren’t adept at creating majestic hairstyles which does all the hard work to make life for all those wannabe mermaids that little bit easier.

     

    Rihanna-red-Fishtail-Braids2

    Rihanna opting for a slightly more boho-infused fishtail braid!

     

    So what is it exactly that I love so much about the fishtail braid?  Well, for one thing – who doesn’t want to look like a mermaid?  Secondly?  It’s amazingly versatile – you can make it sleek and neat for a chic look or make it a little messy and have loose strands flying everywhere to create a more boho/festival-inspired look.  There’s no denying that this is a showstopper of a braid – it also has the ability to fool people into believing that you’re an amazing hairstylist due to its intricate appearance despite it actually being no more difficult to create than your standard braid or plait.  Even Blake Lively’s getting in on the fishtail act – and if it’s good enough for Mrs Ryan Reynolds then it is most definitely good enough for me!

     

    BlakeLivelyFeature22120628092340

    Blake Lively’s eye-catching fishtail braid!

     

    However, who can forget the trusty old French braid?  The French braid stood me well throughout my younger school days, I mean, I would even sleep in French braids -it was a serious addiction which would result in crazy crimped hair the moment I unravelled my braid.  French braids are a classic, and I’ve recently started wearing them again which has renewed my once lost love for them.  The simplest way of describing how to do a French braid is basically just to do a normal 3-section braid but start higher up in your hair (well, as far up as you want the braid to begin – the higher the better I say!) and start off with a small amount of hair and add more to each section as you work your way down the braid. See a video here.

     

    braid-amanda2

    Amanda Seyfried’s stylish French braid!

     

    Now, why exactly have I reignited my love for the French braid?  This hugely comes down to the fact that I can start off with a perfectly coiffed and elegant French braid, sleep in it and the next day be rocking a shabby chic boho braid – two looks for the price of one?  YES PLEASE.  I have to say that I do find this braid slightly more fiddly when plaiting than the fishtail braid but that’s probably down to the fact that there’s an extra section of hair involved in this scenario but I’m ok with that and you should be too because the overall look of this braid is just as classic as it is contemporary – it’s a gorgeous walking contradiction.

     

    hotd-290711-l2

    Nicole Richie showing us all how amazing a side French braid can look!

     

    So which braid wins? For me, despite it being minutely more tricky for me to do, I have to speak up for more inner 8-year-old self and opt for the French braid as I can get two days’ worth of looks from it which satisfies my slightly lazier side.  This doesn’t mean that I don’t still love the fishtail braid, it just means that right now the time is right for me and the French braid to make my hair look a little more……..Parisian and a little less……fishy?!

    Any other braids out there that you love? We’d love to know so drop us a comment!

  • Street Style: How You Copy Celebrity Trends

    Sometimes we look at a celebrity’s outfit and think it looks good on them, but could the rest of us pull it off? In all the Get The Look posts we do at Live Like a VIP, we pick clothes that are wearable and we can imagine wearing in day to day life. Sometimes we push the boundaries a bit and go for scary colours like yellow or orange but we’re only pushing you out of your comfort zone a tiny little bit because we believe you need to feel comfortable in order to feel like a VIP. Having no self-confidence about your outfit is not cool at all.

    Personally, if I see another person on the street wearing something it gives me confidence I can wear it too so we’re starting a new section at Live Like a VIP. Each week, we’ll look at photos of what celebs have been wearing and then get out on the streets to see if we can spot any of you wearing it. For our debut blog post we bring you:

    The ever so popular Parka coat

    Exhibited in denim style by Rihanna, and in classic khaki by Ashley Tisdale, warm for the winter this style coat is a wardrobe necessity.

    Ashley tisdale parka1Rihanna parka1

    The parka can be found everywhere on the high street, but we like the one this girl is wearing below, which comes from Bows Boutique

    Molly parka1

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The Long Knit Coat


    Coming in so many styles and colours this season the long knit coat can be found almost anywhere. Rooney Mara shows off hers in a chic textured brown.

  • Monday Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! Hope everyone had a good weekend. Are you ready to get this week started with some juicy showbiz gossip? Well here you go!

    Jesy Nelson from Little Mix has unveiled a new tattoo on her arm. The huge tattoo features a giant rose and thorns and adds nicely to her already vast majority of tattoos. It does seem however, she’s taken inspiration from Cheryl Cole’s bum tattoo. What do you think?

    Jesy Nelson

    Oh when will Kerry Katona learn? Despite friends revealing that she’s facing bankruptcy for the third time and living beyond her means, Kerry is adamant that she’s up to date with all her payments. If there is any truth to what Kerry’s friends are saying then Kerry needs to re-evaluate her priorities. After all she’s expecting baby number five soon!

    Kerry Katona

    Vanessa White from The Saturdays was always described as the ‘party animal’ of the group but we had no idea to what extent. The singer opened up to Fabulous Magazine stating her addiction with alcohol began to make her life spiral out of control back in 2010. She also mentioned that year was terrible for her, with all the other girls in the band being in relationships and she was the only single one going out all night and partying. It’s obvious now that Vanessa had turned her life around. Well done!

    Vanessa White

    Another singer who revealed he was close to breaking point is Matt Cardle. After spending the last month in rehab, the former X-Factor winner has revealed that he was a mere weeks away from death after mixing valium with alcohol regularly. It’s a lethal combination and it was what caused Heath Ledger and Anna Nicole Smith’s death. Glad he finally dealt with his addiction.

    Matt Cardle

    Amanda Bynes has seemed to make the most miraculous recovery after her troubles were plastered across the media last year. She was spotted looking healthy and happy at FIDM- a fashion design school in LA. Since being released from treatment during the festive period, Amanda is living back with her parents and is now a part time student. Doing great Amanda!

    Amanda Bynes

    Former The Hills star Kristin Cavallari is expecting her second boy. She already has a son called Camden Jack with her husband Jay Cutler. She’s come a long way since causing drama with Lauren Conrad and all her drunken late nights. Congratulations!

    Kristin Cavallari

    Kim Kardashian is back to being a brunette. After going through a blonde spell after North West was born, Kim has retired to a softer brunette hairdo. She posted the picture on Instagram with the caption ‘I’m Back!’- she most certainly is!

    Kim Kardashian

    Shakira and Rihanna have unveiled their video to their duet ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’- and let me tell you, it is one sexy video! They seem completely with ease at each other lounging around by a swimming pool and in a mansion, puffing away at cigars. Good job ladies!

    Rihanna Shaira

    How To Visit Istanbul Like Rihanna

    I love shopping, I love clubbing and I love hot weather (which is why I go to Ibiza every year) but I also want to do things I wouldn’t get a chance to do at home when I’m on holiday. I want to try new food and get inspired by beautiful architecture and that’s in limited supply in Ibiza now that I’m used to it.

    If you’ve only got a few days off from work as you’re so busy earning money for your VIP lifestyle , then Istanbul ticks all the boxes and it’s just 3 hours 40 mins flying time from London. Bond films From Russia With Love, The World Is Not Enough and Skyfall were filmed there but I first became intrigued by it last year when Rihanna posted photos of herself at the city’s W hotel after a gig.

    rihanna-istanbul-shopping-10

    There were some other photos of Rihanna in the city at the time, including this one of her walking through a local bar. Having wrongly assumed Istanbul was full of historical and ancient things, this bar looks sleek and modern – just the sort of place I’d happily sip a glass of Champagne in.

    rihanna-istanbul-shopping-02

    Justin Bieber and David Guetta also performed in Istanbul in 2013, while The Wanted are heading there in March 2014 and Justin Timberlake will be there in May. There’s never been a better time to visit!

    Fans of Istanbul love it for the individuality – it’s the only city in the world where Europe meets Asia and it also straddles the ancient and the modern worlds. The skyline is a glittering ribbon of palaces, mosques, and minarets, but also of sleek skyscrapers, where the restaurant and nightclub scene challenges New York’s or London’s with beautiful people dancing til the early hours. Just my kind of place!

    If you’re planning a trip to Istanbul, this is what I recommend:

    (1) Taking photos at the Blue Mosque…a great Instagram shot!

    istanbul-blue-mosque

    The Blue Mosque is one of Istanbul’s best sights . I also recommend visiting the Basilica Cistern - a 1,500-year-old building supported by 336 columns and the Hagia Sophia - It was a church, then a mosque and is now a museum; standing beneath its 55m-high dome is a humbling experience. Look out for superb mosaics of Christ, the Virgin Mary and Byzantine emperors  and the Viking graffiti scratched on the balustrade of the south gallery.

    (2) Shopping and savouring the flavours of the Bazaar

    The Grand Bazaar is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, with 61 covered streets and over 3,000 shops which attract between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily. Go by tram to  Sultanahmet or Sirkeci for a real oriental shopping experience.

    istanbul-spice

    The Spice Bazaar (also known as the Egyptian Bazaar) near Galata Bridge in Eminönü is small compared with the Grand Bazaar, but is packed with excellent delis and shops selling Turkish delight, packs of apple tea, honeycombs, cheeses, dried nuts and fruit, stuffed figs, caviar, coffee, spices, and an incredible range of herbal teas for every complaint and condition.

    istanbul-sweets

    (3) Checking out the prices of designer labels…and enjoying coffee in the mall

    When you’ve had your fill of Oriental design, it’s time to head for the city’s modern malls which cover everything from high-end to high-street. Funky Istinye Park ( istinyepark.com) is a mini village populated by Bond Street-style stores under one roof – with golf carts available to help heavily laden customers back to their cars. It’s huge!

    istanbul-shop-istinye-park

    Kanyon  (kanyon.com.tr) has everything from Harvey Nichols to Wagamama – but you could be in London.

    (4) Bar-hopping and clubbing

    If you want to be a bit sophisticated, Sensus is a trendy wine and cheese ‘boutique’ a stone’s throw from the landmark Galata Tower, this cellar bar is lined with literally hundreds of bottles of Turkish wines. This is the place to come and try a wide variety of domestically produced wines, few of which you’ll find in the average restaurant, best accompanied by a platter of surprisingly varied Turkish cheeses.

    Leb-i-Deriya is one of the first, and still the best, of the rash of rooftop bars which have swept across the city in recent years. Mellow music, cocktails and a hip, sophisticated clientele. And the views down over the Golden Horn and Bosphorus are just fabulous. For dinner, try 360 restaurant, which combines traditional Turkish cuisine with 360 chef’s modern flair. The views are to die for!

    istanbul360

    Now you’ve lined your stomach, dance it off at Indigo (famous for it’s electro scene) or if you want some style and glamour then Reina, on the banks of the Bosphorus – has two floors of house music and it’s where the Investment bankers and those with money go to party. Dress to impress!

    (5) Sleep off your hangover at the beach

    istanbul-beach

    Şile and Ağva  are nice long, wide beaches on the Black Sea coast 72 km (45 miles) northeast of Üsküdar. Take Bus 139 (Şile) or139A (Şile & Ağva) from the Harem Otogar.  In summer there are about 27 buses per day in each direction (Harem-Şile and Şile-Harem) on the 139 route starting at 06:30 am, with the last bus returning from Şile to Istanbul at 24:00 (12 midnight).

    There are other beaches too, all within a 90min drive of Istanbul but you’ll need to hire a car to properly explore these.

    (6) Stay in style…relax in your own private villa

    istanbul-flat

    If you’re staying in Istanbul for a few days you may not have time to do this…but if you want to extend your stay then you’ll find that Istanbul can be as vibrant or as relaxing as you make it. If your schedule is as busy as Rihanna’s and you stay in a hotel in the centre of town then you’ll be constantly on the go. However, chose to stay in a villa on the outskirts of town and you can explore the sights for a day, spend the next day relaxing and go back out when you’ve had time to collect your thoughts and work on your suntan There are amazing real estate villas for sale in Istanbul via Turkey real estate guru Spot Blue.

     

    Essential Info

    Nearest Airport: Airlines including British Airways and Turkish Airlines use Istanbul Ataturk airport, which is 3 hours 40 minutes from London. Low-cost flight operators like Pegasus and Easyjet use Istanbul’s SAW airport.

    Currency: Turkish Lira. £1 = 3.67 Turkish Lira. (Divide prices by 4 to get back to what it is in £’s)

    Tips: Istanbul’s equivalent of an Oyster card, the Istanbulkart saves the hassle of buying tokens (jeton; £1) every time you travel. You save a shade over 30p per journey after loading the card – it can be used on the tram, metro, buses, ferries, funiculars and suburban trains.

    Hi VIPs! How are you today? Half way through the week already! Here’s some showbiz gossip to get you through to Friday. Enjoy!

    Former Big Brother contestant Chanelle Hayes packed on the pounds last year and shot up to a size 14. However, it seems like she has a New Years resolution of getting back into shape. She was seen in a park with her personal trainer huffing and puffing in a gruelling workout! Perhaps, a new celebrity fitness DVD is in the works?

    Chanelle Hayes

    Lucy Mecklenburgh has wowed her fans with pictures of herself modelling dresses for her own fashion store, Lucy’s Boutique. The new stock of clothes looked obviously gorgeous on Lucy’s slim, athletic figure which she keeps in check with regular exercise.

    Dan osborne

    Things have moved quickly for Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross! They announced their engagement over Twitter after starting their relationship in June 2013. Jessica Simpson’s little sister and Diana Ross’ son are clearly happy after getting engaged in Hawaii. Let’s hope it’s second time lucky for Ashlee!

    Ashlee Simpson

    We recently talked about J-Woww being pregnant with her first child. However, seems like the reality star is finding pregnancy tough! After fans being shocked about how her 4 month pregnancy figure looked, she told E! News that she lost 9lbs in just three weeks due to extensive morning sickness. She has now been put on Zofran, an anti nausea medication, which should hopefully make her feel better!

    J-Woww

    Ciara is pregnant! The singer who made the announcement on The View is also engaged to her soon to be baby daddy, rapper Future- real name Nayvadius Cash, who is also her ‘best friend’. Best of luck and congratulations!

    Since their I’m A Celebrity exit, the public have been left guessing whether Joey Essex and Amy Willerton were ever a couple or not. Joey has now come forward and told MailOnline exclusively that they were never in a relationship and they are still very good friends! If you say so!

    Joey Essex Amy Willerton

    Another supermodel looking fantastic in an ad campaign is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She scored an LA based gig for Juicy Couture and looks every inch the Californian girl in her jealousy inducing snaps alongside model Emily DiDonato.

    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

    We have to admit- it would be nice to be Pippa Middleton, even for a day. She was spotted out and about in London sporting a £795 Marylebone tote by Aspinal. Pocket money for her!

    Pippa Middleton

    Justin Bieber is in trouble again! He may be charged with a felony for allegedly throwing eggs at his neighbour’s house and causing more than $20,000 in damage. It seems like it’s time that Beliebers should come out in full support for the singer!

    Justin Bieber

    Jennifer Lawrence was apparently hungover on the day of her big Golden Globes win! She reportedly got ‘trashed’ at a pre-Golden Globes party at the Beverly Hills Hotel the night before. Well she scrubbed up better than most of us do when we’re hungover!

    Shakira and Rihanna did a fantastic job promoting their new collaboration ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’ . They both took to Twitter to do a countdown and Rihanna did the same whilst she was on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. Sounding good ladies!

    Kesha has checked herself into rehab for an eating disorder for 30 days! Speaking to TMZ beforehand she mentioned, ‘I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practise!’.

    Kesha

    Audrina Patridge confirmed what everyone else already new in an interview with E! News- ‘The Hills’ was mostly scripted! She claimed that producers wouldn’t let them leave events until they got into a fight, so they had to fake ones just so they could leave! Scripted or not, The Hills is still a reality show classic!
