    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!

    Celebrity Trends: Spring Coats


    Hi VIPs! How’s your week going? Are you having nice weather where you are? In London, it’s been beautiful and it’s inspired us to have another summery theme for our weekly trend feature. This week we’re looking at spring coats that provide a light layer so they keep the chill off without making us too warm.

    Let’s have a look at a smart causal and a cool casual way of wearing a spring coat, inspired by the stars:

    Rita Ora – smart casual


    The America’s Next Top Model presenter has a new passion for fashion and this white outfit was lovely and spring-like. It’s bright and flattering for everyone’s complexion and the simple shape of the coat means it has a timeless elegance. The white belted shawl collar coat from Boohoo is a good match and an absolute bargain at just £20. Hurry as prices like this, means it won’t be available for long.

    Abbey Clancy – cool casual



    Leather jackets are perfect for Spring and Abbey looked on trend with her ripped hem jeans and classic biker jacket. The Missguided black faux leather cropped zip off biker jacket is very similar to Abbey’s and a steal at just £45.

    Which one’s your fave? At prices like this, why not get both?

    Have a great day and we’ll be back tomorrow with more celeb news.

    Celebrity Trends: Best Bikinis

    Hi VIPs! Now the sun is making more of an appearance, we’re starting to think about holidays. Long days lazing by the pool, watching the sun set from a beach bar, taking a boat trip to see some sights…bliss!

    How many bikinis do you pack when you go away? Every girl needs at least two as they never dry properly overnight and there’s nothing worse than putting on wet swimwear. However, it’s best to take three – just to be on the safe side. That’s why we’ve picked our three fave celeb-inspired swimsuits. Let’s dive into:

    (1) Bella Hadid’s red bikini



    Bella is a model so she has a fantastic figure and she flaunts it by keeping her bikini simple. The red colour is bold but the shape is a simple triangle top and the overall look is chic and understated, even though it’s red.

    Even better news is that it’s so affordable to copy with the Missguided triangle bikini top, which is £10 with briefs £8.



    (2) Ferne McCann’s gold bikini



    The TOWIE star turned TV presenter looked stunning in an animal print bikini in the Maldives. She’s left Essex a long way behind, literally and fashion-wise. Her exact bikini is a bit pricey with the Pretty Pink Princess Xena -python print – bikini, being£95.98, but it does look super expensive and will get tons of compliments.



    (3) Rita Ora’s leopard print swimsuit



    Rita looks fabulous in her swimsuit, showing that you don’t have to get your stomach out to look fabulous. A swimsuit like Rita’s actually a real bargain – the Boohoo leopard print swimming costume is £20 from ASOS



    So when are you booking your hols? Have a fabulous time!

  • Tuesday Trends: Celebs and White


    Hi VIPs! Are you enjoying the sun? Please let it last, please let it last! Life is just so much easier when we don’t have to worry about folding umbrellas or the wind messing up our blow-dries.

    I also think that we all look more glamorous in summer. Everyone looks better in lighter coloured clothes that brighten up the skin. It makes us look less tired, we swear. If you don’t believe us, we’ve done some research and seen that the celebs appreciate the value of wearing white clothes. As Tuesday is the day we look at trends, let’s have a look at how the celebs rock white outfits:

    Joss Stone at the Istanbul jazz festival


    Rita Ora at a Bergdof Goodman party



    Lydia Bright at the Revlon Masquerade ball


    Khloe Kardashian at a Calvin Klein jeans party
