The bell of the ball wears a beanie…? This is the striking statement that BCBG Maxazria made at their A/W13 NYFW show, proving that not all pretty dresses are suppose to feel pretty, they can be edgy too!

The BCBG MAXAZRIA A/W13 shoe at NYFW

It was all about ‘The Beanie’ at the BCBG Maxazira NYFW fashion week show, proving that the gypsy chic look is going to be a huge trend this coming A/W13. BCBG Maxazria taught us that a beanie can add an urban, hipster edge to even the most sophisticated of ensembles, making this classic winter accessory a must have item for next fall.

A clear new silhouette had emerged from this show, sending out the message that A/W13 dressing, is literally all about going with the flow.The new A/W13 silhouette is sparse, loose fitting with an undefined waist.

In order to pull of the gypsy chic trend seamlessly its important to use layering as a technique to create volume and give character to your finished look. Stylists at BCBG Maxazria cleverly layered hooded sweaters and over-sized silk blouses with lavish fur outwear pieces to add an element of opulence and femininity to this new boyish, gypsy chic silhouette.

Prints were bold yet well balanced whilst fabric textures were beautifully juxtaposed every time  silks came in to contact with heavy-duty leathers. Next fall’s parka coat, according to BCBG Mazazria, should be worn both in the day and night, idealy, over-sized and unzipped.

Last but not least, the A/W13 BCBG Maxazria shoe, embodied the every essence of what a statement shoe should look like, fierce and un-apologetically powerful. I’d like to think of the A/W13 BCBG Maxazria shoe as the lovechild of your favorite over the knee leather boots and a timeless pair of pointed stilettos, thank God I’ve always been pro-adoption!

j brand

On Tuesday evening, J Brand, unveiled its first ever ready-to- wear collection at a NYFW presentation that was exclusively attended by the who’s who of the fashion world. This was a monumental event for the denim brand as for the first time J Brand can now compete on an even playing field with some of fashions biggest names.

Famous for its skinny jeans and adored by celebrities including Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and the Duchess of Cambridge, the popular American brand showed a selection of biker jackets, satin blazers, boyfriend jeans, and structured tee’s at NYFW. CEO Jeff Rudes describes the new J Brand collection as ‘easy’ and ‘effortless’ as ‘ you can wear it without having to try too hard’.

The J Brand A/W13  ready-to-wear collection follows a very similar style mantra as their previous denim collections; garments are classic, sharp and edgy. As the spotlight at J Brand shifts from the derriere to the torso, it is refreshing to finally understand the full J Brand aesthetic vision. Trousers remain strong, in all their leather, skinny and super-wide-legged glory, whilst silk blouses, structured jackets and winter wools, put on a brave face, as they are introduced to a NYFW audience for the first time.

NWB STAR STYLE: GIRLS ALOUD WEAR THE SAME OUTFIT TWICE!

This is a promo shot of Girls Aloud’s ‘Something New’ video where they’re seen wearing matching orange off-the-shoulder tulip dresses.

Last Night at Children In Need, Girls Aloud, wore the same orange off-the-shoulder tulip dresses for the second time.

Girls Aloud performed last night at Children In Need wearing the same matching dresses that they wore in there comeback music video, Something New. Now I know they’re probably just trying to make their style cohesive with the music video, but in the fashion world wearing the same outfit twice is like a death sentence. Why when you have the budget, the best stylists money can buy and designers who would kill to have you wear their clothes would you commit such a fashion crime. I just don’t get it!

The girls wore a selection of nude outfits for their second performance.

Thankfully, the girls had a second outfit change prepared for when they performed their second single from their comeback album, a ballad titled ‘Cause You Love Me’.

Be sure to take a look at the Girls Aloud Something New video above and comment below  with your thoughts!

NWB STAR STYLE: IS RITA ORA STEALING RIHANNA’S STYLE?

 Rihanna wore this Red meshed Ellie Saab dress back in 2009, way before Rita Ora was even on the music scene. From the mesh detailing to the bold choice of colour, I think Rita Ora’s 2012 EMA Awards ensemble is just way too similar. Cleary, Rita has found a style icon in Rihanna, but I really would like to see a little bit more originality in her style (even though she always looks great). Now before you think I’m just being a little bit too critical of the ‘Hot Right Now’ singer, so lets take a look at the photographic evidence below (brace yourselves people).

Rita Ora at the 2012 EMA’s in Marchessa and Rihanna at the American Music Awards in 2009. Can you spot the similarities? coincidence….I think not!





Rita Ora and Rihanna were the same ‘Peace’ labelled Topshop crop top with red lipstick.

Rita and Rihanna looking almost identical in this Trapstar beanie and blonde tresses.

Rita Ora (on the right) rocks red stiletto style nails which is a nail that is almost synonymous when it comes to Rihanna’s style.

What’s your style verdict? Is Rita Ora trying to steal Rihanna’s style or do they just simply have the same taste?
