This is the one time Meghan couldn’t break the fashion rules

This is the one time Meghan couldn’t break the fashion rules


Meghan Markle is known for shaking up the sartorial rules a little (see her sheer engagement dress and her Trooping The Colour dress), however Royal Ascot was one occasion where she had to abide by the Royal fashion etiquette.

The Duchess of Sussex today made her first appearance at Royal Ascot, alongside Prince Harry and The Queen, and chose to wear a design by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy for the occasion.

It’s the third time she’s gone with the French fashion house, after her wedding dress of course and the cream dress she paired with The Queen’s earrings just last week on their first outing together.

As we all know, Royal Ascot rules are super strict, and Meghan’s white shirt dress ticked all the right boxes (though there was no sign of that special name badge all the Royals have to wear).

Traditionally, dresses should be of modest length, and shoulders should be covered by a strap that’s at least one-inch wide straps.

Plus, any old fascinator won’t do, as you have to have a base of at least four inches in diameter, which again Meghan’s hat more than covered.

She also kept her midriff covered (another big no no) with a chic black belt, which gave the traditional lace pattern a bit of an edge. Because Meghan is a maverick after all.

This is the one thing celebrities ALWAYS carry in their bags

This is the one thing celebrities ALWAYS carry in their bags


And what to do when a fashion disaster happens

What is the one thing everyone (including celebs) always carries around in their bag, now matter how big it is? Their phone of course.

Stylist Elizabeth Stewart would know, she’s dressed celebrities like Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis and Amanda Seyfried on the red carpet for years, and this is the one thing they always have in those little clutch bags.

‘All a celebrity needs on the red carpet is their phone, and a lot of clutch bags don’t fit the newest models. At the Oscars, you have to have your tickets and usually a lipstick, and you’d be surprised how many bags don’t fit all that,’ she says.

Which is how she came about designing her own bag, with Tyler Ellis. Because you really need room for your phone, don’t you?

Photographer: Sami Drasin at Walter Schupfer Management

Elizabeth explains, ‘Tyler usually does evening bags, and she asked me what my dream bag would be and I said it would be a bag where I could find my phone at all times. It has that outside phone pocket which means I’m basically addicted to only using this bag because it’s the only bag I have that has that, especially when I travel a lot.’

And it turns out she’s not the only one to want a tote bag, as her celeb clients ordered their Ivy tote (named after Elizabeth’s daughter) before it even launched.

‘Julia Roberts has one. There are pics of her watching a soccer match with it. Gal Gadot has a red one (the bag also comes in black, navy and grey). The bag wasn’t even out yet but both of them saw me carrying it and wanted it. It fits a computer and everything else you need!’ she says.

But Elizabeth is of course known for her red carpet styling, and while she has the day bag sorted, she also has some hacks for avoiding any outfit disasters during the evening. Scroll down to read…

Do you have a plan B if another actress wears a similar dress?

It doesn’t happen much at the big events because it tends to be custom made, to avoid problems like that. For smaller events, it’s the first question a stylist would ask, if it’s been worn. We tend to stick to samples, which are one-of-a-kind.

Have you ever had any disasters on the red carpet?

The worst thing that can happen is a technical disaster, I had a dress, with someone I worked with a long time ago, that literally split right at the back as she was walking out the door. Literally, the entire dress. We had a back-up dress (I always have one, this is the only way to avoid problems) but she didn’t want to wear it, so we were in Beverly Hills and we phoned a tailor who came in and sewed it in about 20 minutes. She had to be cut out of it later.

I don’t have a lot of horror stories, it’s literally all about planning. Get your dress, make sure it fits and you’re comfortable with shoes, and you have a back-up.

Any other tips for the red carpet?

You always have to have proper under pinnings. I’ve seen a lot of nipple covers peek out, I’ve seen Spanx peek out. Number one, have the right ones, and number two, make sure they don’t show. It’s also important to make sure the lining matches your skin tone.

Meghan Markle’s evening wedding dress had this special meaning

Meghan Markle’s evening wedding dress had this special meaning


Meghan Markle’s wedding day look, from the Givenchy dress to the veil and the special Princess Diana ribbon sewn into her dress, was full of meaning – and it turns out her second wedding dress was no exception.

Speaking to the BBC, Stella McCartney revealed that the dress was actual symbolic of Meghan transitioning from her old life as an actor to her new role as a member of the Royal family.

She said, ‘The role she’s taken on, it’s very austere, it’s very sort of serious and I think there’s a great weight she’s acquired through that and she takes it very seriously. I think this was the last moment that she could reflect the other side to her and you know, the joy and the human within her.’

‘I was aware we had to take the right kind of positioning, the right pace, the right voice, there was a delicate line,’ she added.

And even though the Duchess of Sussex apparently takes fashion advice from Prince Harry, she was very much hands on when it came to designing the special dress.

Stella said, ‘You know, it was very much her dress and I felt very proud that she came to me for that part of the wedding and that she got to reflect her in it. We worked together. When you go to a wedding, it’s not like, “here, that’s what you’re wearing”. The person has to feel like a million dollars, they need to feel like they own it.’

I think we can all agree that the result was totally worth it (and by the way you can buy a replica of it here), striking the perfect balance between Hollywood glamour and Royal elegance.

The ultimate guide to Princess Diana’s go-to fashion brands (and where to shop them)

The ultimate guide to Princess Diana’s go-to fashion brands (and where to shop them)


princess diana fashion brands

We’ve already told you all about Kate Middleton’s fashion brands, as well as Meghan Markle’s go-to shops, so we thought it was about time we compiled a guide to Princess Diana’s favourite designers and high-street stores too.

After all, Princess Diana’s iconic style inspired future Royals in more ways than one, like the time the Duchess of Cambridge’s maternity dress was a nod to the late Princess, or when Meghan Markle wore her blue ring on her wedding day.

Diana’s style varied over the years, from her Sloane-ranger blazer and jeans combo to her sleeker 90s dresses, but there were a few brands she always went back to. You can shop them below…

Princess Diana wearing Catherine Walker

Whether it’s a power suit or an evening gown, Catherine Walker was Diana’s go-to designer no matter the occasion. Founded in 1977 by Cyrus and his wife Catherine Walker, it became famous in the 80s and 90s thanks to the Royal. Some of her most famous outfits include, but are not limited to, a powder pink ballgown (like the one Meghan Markle wore at Trooping the Colour), a Dynasty-esque green sequin dress and that pearl gown that was fondly nicknamed ‘the Elvis dress’.

She famously wrote to the designer after wearing a white lace dress after her separation from Prince William, telling her ‘I was so proud and felt very confident to stride out there and deliver my first speech since the divorce.’

You can buy Catherine Walker designs in store.

Princess Diana wearing Christina Stambolian

You’ll no doubt have heard of the Revenge dress, which Diana wore for her first appearance since Prince Charles admitted to having an affair with Camilla. She wore the black design to the Serpentine gallery, paired with her famous sapphire choker (here’s what happened to it and the rest of her jewellery after she died). What you might not know is that she was meant to wear Valentino that evening, but the brand released a statement earlier that day about it, which put her off.

So she went with the Greek fashion designer instead, and it all blew up from there. Other fun fact: she had actually been sent this dress three years previously, but was at the time worried it was too revealing. You can buy her designs on eBay.

Princess Diana wearing Versace

Princess Diana was very good friends with Gianni Versace (‘I am devastated by the loss of a great and talented man’ she said when she found out about his death), and wore his designs a lot in the 90s. She famously posed on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar wearing an embellished blue dress, and wore a gorgeous one-shoulder silk gown to a charity ball in Sidney in 1996.

Princess Diana wearing Bruce Oldfield

Princess Diana met Oldfield through her work at Barnado’s and wore his couture dresses from the mid 80s to mid 90s, when her style changed, at which point she stopped wearing his designs. Some of his dresses include an off-the-shoulder navy dress which she wore at a dinner in 1987 and a gala in 1988, and was later auctioned off for £45,000 at Christie’s.

Princess Diana wearing Dior

There’s a reason Dior has a bag named after Diana (the Lady Dior FYI): she was one of their most loyal customers. The bag, which had another name at the time, was given to Diana by the French First Lady, Bernadette Chirac. She loved it so much that she ordered it in every version, which prompted Dior to name it after her.

Princess Diana wearing Bellville Sassoon

You might not have heard of David Sassoon, but he created over 70 gowns for Princess Diana over the course of two decades, and is credited for taking her from Sloane Ranger to fashion icon status. She famously wore a bright floral-patterned dress to visit children in hospital, and a pink floral dress for Prince William’s christening in 1982.

Princess Diana wearing Emanuel

Diana’s fairytale showstopper from her 1981 royal wedding was created by Welsh designer duo David and Elizabeth Emanuel. The dress was made of ivory silk, pure taffeta and antique lace, with 10,000 pearls and sequins, and had a 25 ft train

Princess Diana wearing Ferragamo

Everyone talks about the Lady Dior bag, but did you know Ferragamo also named a bag after Diana? The late Princess owned over 20 variations of the chain strap bag, which was named the Lady Di after her death.

Princess Diana wearing Chanel

Princess Diana was a big Chanel fan, and was especially fond of the bags and shoes, though she sadly didn’t wear the brand after her divorce. The reason she couldn’t wear Chanel anymore was because the interlocked Cs reminded her of Charles and Camilla.

There’s no denying Princess Diana was very loyal to the designers she loved, which included lots of British up-and-coming names, who she supported even after her divorce, which was a turning point in her style. You could even say she paved the way for Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

How To Hem Pants Properly

How To Hem Pants Properly


Hemming pants is the story of the horrors for most of our lives. That's how the story goes. You find that a pair of jeans that fits perfectly, glides seamlessly into your thighs and sits wonderfully on the hips. That would be an ideal fairy tale. Since we do not live in a perfect world and every story is followed by "but," most of us must eventually fold the trousers because they are too long and are busting around the ankles. In this way the endless journeys begin to the tailor. If you have a good tailor, great. If it is not, it's stupid for another day. And what if I tell you that you can fix this problem with a simple trick?

Jeans, trousers, trousers, skirts and any other bottoms have a recess that is essentially the fabric folded on the edge. There is a standard measurement value depending on the type, size, and pattern of the garment. Since we are all different heights, for some, the length may decrease. However, for most people it is usually longer. That's why we need to learn the technique of folding. Hemming can be done very easily and there is a great chance to find all the supplies at home. Let's see how to do it.

    What does a fashion designer wear to get married?


    Hint: you don’t design it yourself. (Because who needs that kind of pressure?) Step inside the stylish nuptials of hot London fashion designer Alice Archer and steal a few tips for yourself…

    wedding style Alice Archer

    wedding style Alice Archer

    When it comes to wedding style and you’re a young designer building a reputation for designing pieces that make perfect wedding dresses you’d have thought wearing your own design would be a no-brainer for your trip up the aisle.

    London-based Alice Archer is an embroidery specialist, who worked for designer Dries van Noten in Antwerp. She also – fabulously – worked for artist Tracy Emin, producing the embroidery for Emin’s artworks. Archer graduated from RCA in 2013, having studied fine art at Goldsmiths and Central St Martin’s. She began designing her collection in 2014, and now has fans including Pippa Middleton, Camilla Rutherford, P Diddy, Ellie Goulding, Susie Bubble and Pandora Sykes. Her labour-intensive designs are exquisitely made in Como, Italy, and are a combination of print and specialist embroidery techniques.

    Her wedding style perfect pieces are often chosen by other brides: “Some of my clients have bought my pieces to get married in but they weren’t conventional ‘wedding dresses’, she tells us. “Even before starting my own label, I embroidered dresses for two of my best friends’ weddings.”

    Now Archer is building on her rep, with the launch of a dedicated bridal collection (hitting Browns Bride in October): “It will be a small collection of embroidered pieces, including dresses and a trouser suit. Each piece is embroidered with flowers that symbolise love, loyalty and hope,” she says.

    But for her wedding to Henry, a UX (user experience) designer, she went for something completely different. Here are all the stunning steal-them-now details from her bridal look…

    wedding style Alice Archer

    The location: St-Martin-in-the-Fields, London – with a reception in the Crypt afterwards.

    Wedding dresses Alice Archer

    The proposal: “One evening last August, Henry texted me to ask me to come home early from the studio. When I arrived back at our flat there were candles everywhere and he had cooked a delicious three course meal, including an incredible chocolate cake. I am a chocoholic so this was perfect!”

    The dress:  “Our wedding was quite soon after finishing a collection, so I didn’t have much time. I went to Browns Bride to look at potential dresses and completely fell in love with a Viktor & Rolf dress, and then I couldn’t get it out of my head and couldn’t imagine anything else…”

    Wedding style Alice Archer

    The look:  Duchesse satin on top, with a tulle skirt featuring 3D organza flowers on the skirt, from the Viktor & Rolf bridal collection. “The top was almost like a sporty polo shirt – very structured, while the skirt was romantic and ethereal. I chose it because it made me feel strong and it was unusual – romantic, innocent and modern,” says Alice.

    Wedding style Alice Archer

    The shoes: Gucci blue satin round-toed mules with crystal bows for the ceremony, and flat white jewelled Manolo Blahniks for the reception. “I’ve always loved shoes, and your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy a fantasy pair! I’m always browsing online. When I saw these Gucci mules, I thought they were fun, bold and beautiful. But I couldn’t resist the chance to wear another pair, too – Manolo makes surprisingly comfortable, elegant pumps.”

    Wedding style Alice Archer

    The rings: “Henry went to Hatton Garden before cooking the engagement dinner and chose my engagement ring instinctively. It has a deep blue sapphire in the centre and diamonds on either side. He loves sapphires, his mum has one in her engagement ring and they represent September, his birth month.” The couple bought their wedding bands from a hand-crafted jewellery shop called Ruberg in Islington’s Camden Passage.

    Wedding style Alice Archer

    Hair and makeup: “My hair stylist Carolina Crona did a beautiful chignon, which we practiced about a month before the wedding. Ariel Yeh, who does the make up for my Fashion Week presentations, did my makeup. She’s amazing at glowing skin and ‘natural’ beauty looks.”

    Wedding style Alice Archer

    Wedding vibe summed up in a sentence: “An explosion of happiness and love!”

    Wedding style

    Congrats, Alice and Henry….now we’ve got some wedding style inspiration, can we borrow those Gucci mules please?

    This ten year old designer handbag is officially one of the most expensive in the world


    How many Topshop purses will that get us?

    If you’ve been saving up for a dream designer handbag, you might want to scrap this one from your wishlist. The Hermes Birkin bag has long been a favourite of the rich fashion pack with a notoriously long wait list. It just made its case as the best designer investment piece ever as a rare version just broke a European record at auction, landing a very happy seller a cushy sum.

    The bag in question is a ten year old Himalaya Niloticus Birkin bag crafted from Nile crocodile skin, which comes with 18-carat white gold hardware and more than 200 diamonds to boot. It was expected to go for a casual £100-150k at a London auction yesterday, but blew past expectations with a final closing price of £162,500.

    Christie’s

    This Birkin is now officially the most expensive handbag ever sold at a European auction and the second-most expensive handbag ever. The top honour goes to another Birkin bag in a similar style which went for £253,700 in Hong Kong last year.

    Christie’s said the Himalaya Niloticus Birkin 30 was the ‘undisputed most valuable bag in the world’, due to the fact that they’re incredible difficult to craft. Named the Himalaya after the snowy white shade of the bag, albino crocodiles are very difficult to come by and the skill required to dye crocodile hide to such a degree is astronomical.

    Unsurprisingly, Hermes only make a couple of them a year.

    It won’t come as a shock that a number of A-listers love the bag, with the likes of Celine Dion and Kim Kardashian touting the wearable savings account around (you can see Kim with hers below).

    David Beckham actually bought a similar Himalaya Birkin for a reported £80,000, a tidy gift for his wife Victoria Beckham.

    At the same auction, a blue Birkin bag from 2006 also went for £100,000. Forget buying a house, it sounds like a Birkin’s a safer investment.

    Best 80s Fashion Trends For Women – 20 Outfit Ideas

    Best 80s Fashion Trends For Women – 20 Outfit Ideas


    Fashion in the 1980s was courageous, courageous, strong and everything fashion should be in the most real sense! We talk about women who set standards, but women have always been known to revolutionize dresses and styles that are still signed today. While some of them could not survive long and were unnecessarily dressed, most of them survived in the changing times. If you think it's only the 90's coming back, you're wrong. The 80s of the last century are quiet, slow, gentle but surely come back. If you do not want to miss and see how women have done it then, grab this machine time! Let's look at and inspire the fashion of the 80s

    The 20 best styles inspired by the 80s for women

    1. 80s Rock Fashion

      1. 80s Rock Fashion

    Shutterstock

    If you want to be transformed and teleported in the 80s, the easiest way to do it is to keep your hair. Wear some bold colors and put on socks some socks or leggings. It may sound unreal, but wearing bed linen over the pants was something for men. But we will act as if it is not true.

    2. 80s Style LBD

    We all know that the little black dress has been here long ago. But do you know how to rotate about 80 spells on it? Adding a blazer, jacket or coat with shoulder pads. It was a big part of the fashion of the 80's and full fury. So, no wonder he is coming back right now. If you want to continue with the theme, wear shiny colored trousers. You can also wear your skin if you do not want to be too "out".

    3. Flowers and Neon Colors

    Today, you and I would have thought 10 times before we put on such clothing. But during the day nothing was considered "wrong" when it comes to fashion. Of course, there were rules, but people embraced change and eccentrics much easier than today. So, if you go to an 80-year-old dress or show, this is a great option.

    4. 80s Workout Fashion

    Even their workout training has never been thin, right? The majority of the big T-shirt shorts and shorts were quite common. If you want to be alien and look for inspiration, try this.

    5. Knitted trousers

    Trousers, not just jeans, were equally famous in the 1980s. They were, however, mostly with a high waist. Associated with the top of the harvest, they look absolutely nasty.

    6. Printed blouse

    Structured clothing, printed blouses and knitted blazers were all needed for women. If you look at it carefully, you will realize that much of it is related to their love for oversized clothing.

    7. High Raincoat

    High waist thing looks like the fashion mantra of the 80s. And all thanks to Tina Turner who did it. The full thrash of the shirt was also a very common practice.

    8. 80s fashion accessories

    Women have been on top of their game accessory for the longest time now. The famous huge hoops were also something of the 80s and just as big a hit as they are now. Fannie packs, gangs, long jewelery, crystal clocks and socks were all women's opportunities to add brighter elements to their teams

    9. Blazer with shoulder pads

    Floral blazer, one with shoulder pads or both combined in one – this is what you need to look for when looking for the 80's. , Trousers and Leather Boots

    Pantyhose, pantyhose and large printed trousers are all the bottoms that women prefer in the 1980s. The boots were another obsession, so I guess it all started.

    11. Only members of Jacket And Bandana

    "Only members" jackets (which looked like bomber jackets) were considered luxury goods. Throw one of these over your high-quality denim shorts or skirt and secure your hair with lace. Wear big shades to finish the look.

    12. Fleece and belt

      12. Polka Dots Dresses and Waist

    Shutterstock

    Polka point dresses shout retro. If this is not enough, add a wide belt that is stacked at the top of the waist and throws a piece of strand jewelry as well.

    13. Denim Jacket

      13. Denim Jacket

    Shutterstock

    Here's evidence that denim jackets are wardrobe stapled as forever. The denim jacket may have seen several repetitions in order to be able to cope with trends, but there is and will always be a never-ending classic

    14. Vintage Long Skirt

    The women of the 80s had no worries to be alive and did not worry about being as minimalistic as we are. Party accessories meant denim skirt with a colorful top or embossed skirt with equally glittering shoes

    15. Traditional Party Suit

    Costumes, overalls and overalls were all the wear-off party in the 1980s. If you look closely, like Beyonce, Rihanna and Giddy Hadid sport with such dresses and often have a touch of the 80s with them. So, if you are heading to a thematic party of the 1980s, you know your possibilities.

    16. High Knee Socks

    Do not be afraid of wearing socks with high knees if you're trying to bring a retro or 80s item to your outfit. We're talking about bold dressing today, but I guess they're bad and knew how to do it better than any of us can do now.

    17. Leopard Print Fashion

    Most people think that it is intricate for animal prints but they are infinite. Designers play a lot with these prints on bags, shoes, dresses and scarves. The stamp of the leopard and the footprint of snakes are mostly in the 80s of the last century.

    18. Clothing

    Overalls are one of the easiest ways to transform a costume into a retro costume because they are a hit then and continue to be. You can carry them with a high collar shelf or shoulders if you want to be loud.

    19. Tall bedroom with thick pavement and ball

    The crushed peaks of the harvest were from the 80s off the shoulders. Comparing high waist sex was another sensible choice that happened everywhere.

    20. Original T-Shirts and Denim

    Most of us practically live in these, right? But they are not new inventions and definitely not a millennium. The wearing of huge t-shirts and their jeans was a tremendous amount of punk rock culture during the day.

    This was a sweet revival, was not it? If you are from the 80s, I hope it's connected. If not, I hope you have found enough inspiration to use some of them in your daily teams or use them as a theme party. How about the fashion of the 80s? Do you think it is better then when everything is raw and real? Or do you want the style to evolve over time?

    The 80 best fashion brands

    The 80 fashion brands range from Izod sweaters and Nike jerseys to Calvin Klein, Gloria Vanderbilt, The Limited, Forenza and Espirit, who were one of the biggest names in 80s of the last century

    The Polka Dots 80s

    Polka have not been particularly since the 1980s. In fact, they first appeared in the early 19th century in Europe and at that time were picked up by some famous actresses. When American actresses, supermodels, and later Walt Disney use them for their creativity, they finally end up as a wildfire. The 80s of the last century became popular among ordinary people, while celebrities took them long before. This is an endless pattern that will remain until the end of time

    5. Van Cliff and Arpeles

    Van Cleef & Arpels is another French designer of the Art Deco era. It was started by Alfred Van Cleef in collaboration with his uncle Salmon Arpeles.

Van Clef is also known for his futuristic designs as "Mysterious Adjustment," which is a setting that produces the best exposure of any gemstone.

    6. Chopard

    Started by David and Sybil Yurman in New York in 1980, this American brand of jewelry came much later than the other big brands. But hey, that's no less than other big names in the industry. It makes jewelry to meet the many needs of women – whether it is for a red carpet event or as a daily essence. Her signature piece is the "cable motif", which includes everything covering a silver, platinum or golden strand and stones-covered or polished left. Celebrities are often spotted to wear David Yurman

    9. Boucheron

    Chanel is a French label that is not news for any of us. The luxury fashion house was launched in 1909 by the legend – Gabriel or Coco Chanel. Coco Chanel is famous for his revolutionary projects and for the faith, the utterance and the making of clothes that marry the female elements with the male element in a way that does not stereotype women, but takes the best of them. Chanel is in the design of sophisticated modern jewelery and luxury sculptured diamond collections.

    12. Dior

    Christian Dior is the master of his game, whether it's clothing, handbags, perfumes or jewelery. The brand's expansion in jewelery production occurred in 1950 as it is a natural progression and something that complements its existing product line. Dior is in jewels that fall on both ends of the spectrum – from intensely inlaid multicolored gems to gorgeous jewels – they know the pulse of the market and its customers. Mikimoto

    If you are in pearls, you should have heard about the Micimoto, a company creating pearl jewelry with the highest quality and design. It starts with a Japanese designer named Mikimoto Kokichi, who first made cultivated pearls. It began in 1899 in Tokyo and then spread its wings to all major cities in the world such as London, New York, Bombay, Shanghai, Paris and others.

    14. H. Stern
