Trend alert for 2015

BEING a fashion groupie has never been cooler. Never mind being in the band, the only thing you want to say is: "I'm with the band"  and the spring/summer 2015 seasons lends itself to this mind set plentifully and playfully. The culprits are Saint Laurent and Tom Ford most notably when it comes to channeling stage performance style  tour bus and after party chic from the former; Marc Bolan hair from the latter. But the spring/summer 2015 season was one underpinned by an unearthing of Seventies charm  from shaggy jackets and pioneering (when it came to height) platforms to ponchos, skinny scarves and beyond. Here's how to pull it off.....

Firstly, don't be on the fringe of things  be among them. suede or beaten-up leather jacket, or poncho will set you on the path of glamorous groupie. 

Of course, star quality is key. Granted, this look isn't about being on stage but it is about showing that life on the road is just as bohemian and cool. A shaggy jacket always has rock 'n' roll status written all over it and will leave everyone wondering which band member you're dating. 

A smokey eye is a prerequisite but update it with a smudge of purple instead, as seen at Vera Wang. Up-all-night eyes have never looked more alluring.

A slinky dress for the after party should be the base of the outfit. Boots will keep it downbeat while hanging out at rehearsals and platforms will come out later for dancing fun.

Here they are. As shown at Saint Laurent, team with a sheer tight. The perfect contrast.

The hair? Look to the mussed-up nature of Marc Bolan, it should look ever so slightly dazed and confused but this wont fly if you are wearing bohemian or braids.

A skinny scarf is something you might have from the early days of millennium boho. Get rummaging, for it instantly brings that Seventies groupie vibe to a vintage dress. if the weather is hot look for a very light scarf.
Suede or leather boots that run to knee high should be worn with the aforementioned vintage dresses, ponchos and coats to bring that Seventies sensibility that sets the look apart be careful the region/country you want to wear this, they can be extremely uncomfortable if the weather is hot.
An irreverent accessory is a must be it a turban or piece of fabulous fluff thrown over the shoulder. It all adds up to glamorous. 

A classic leather jacket can easily come out of the cupboard to be dressed up by the tights, the make-up, the dress.
Stay pretty, stay beautiful and remain fabulous.

Golden Globe 2015 red carpet

THE Golden Globe Awards took place for the first time in 1944, starting life as an informal lunch recognising the year's best achievements in film. Today, it's one of the biggest dates on the Hollywood calendar - only outranked by the Oscars for awards-ceremony scale and prestige - and honours not only the best of the film industry, but television too. As with all modern-day awards ceremonies, the gowns that grace the red carpet inspire as many headlines as who takes home the all-important prizes.
AS the first big night on the Hollywood calendar, all eyes are perennially on the Golden Globe Awards to set the trends - both in red-carpet fashion and for the names to watch this awards season. See all the dresses, straight from the red carpet
