How Millie Mackintosh Is Dealing With Her Fashion Business Closing

Tue, 03/20/2018 - 15:46

It's been a tough week for the Made In Chelsea star, but she's determined to bounce back

There was resounding sadness in the LOOK office last week, when Millie Mackintosh announced she would be closing her self-titled fashion range. The business, Cammac, will be liquidated after it was revealed the label owes £584K, with Millie personally losing £178K.

Announcing the closure on Instagram, Millie revealed the business had struggled with the current financial climate, saying: ‘[It] has proved immensely challenging and the business is no longer sustainable.’

A post shared by Millie Mackintosh (@milliemackintosh) on Mar 12, 2018 at 12:42pm PDT

We imagine it’s a rather gloomy time for Millie, 28, but despite the news, a source speaking exclusively to LOOK has revealed that she’s in positive spirits, determined to focus on projects and endorsements set for the following year.

She’s also getting married to former Made In Chelsea co-star Hugo Taylor, 31, and throwing herself into planning the wedding.

‘Millie is devastated that her business has gone bust – but she allowed herself a couple of days to feel sorry for herself and is now vowing to come out fighting and get her life and career back on track,’ explains a friend.

There are apparently three endorsement offers on the table for the star and last year, Millie launched her first beauty line with Boots, which is set to continue. Our insider reveals she’s been hard at work on the next range, with new products set to drop in September.

There are rumours the former reality star is liquidating the business, only to be starting another one, but LOOK can reveal this isn’t the case.

‘Millie is not about to launch a new fashion label,’ her agent told us exclusively.

We think there could be a potential move into fitness this year, though. ‘Millie’s been spending lots of time in the gym, which has helped her stay in a positive and motivated head space,’ says a close pal.

‘Hugo has played a big part in lifting her spirits, too. Planning the wedding has been a great distraction and has been her salvation through all of this.’

We’re truly gutted for Millie, but we know she’ll make a brilliant comeback. In the meantime, it seems the wedding countdown is officially on…

The Touching Significance Behind Kate Middleton’s St Patrick’s Day Outfit

Mon, 03/19/2018 - 15:32

By Molly West

From the editors of Woman & Home

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out to celebrate St Patrick’s Day at the weekend, in one of the Duchess’s final engagements before she’s due to give birth.

The royal couple visited the 1st Battalion of the Irish Guards in London, of which William is Colonel, on Saturday. And as ever, Catherine made sure she was dressed appropriately for the occasion.

She chose to wear a green Catherine Walker coat with a fur collar and matching cuffs, something she recycled from her recent royal tour in Sweden.

To accessorise, the Duchess chose a simple pair of black heels and a Gina Foster hat, which she previously wore for St Patrick’s Day in 2014.

However, it was perhaps the smallest of all her accessories that were perhaps the most significant – the stunning drop earrings she wore to complement the outfit.

The £3,500 tourmaline, diamond and amethyst earrings are not only beautiful but also have a lot of meaning attached to them, as they were reportedly made to celebrate the birth of Princess Charlotte in 2015.

They were designed by luxury jeweller Kiki McDonough, but it is not known who gave them to Kate.

Kate Middleton’s earrings had a special significance

During their visit, Catherine and William greeted 350 soldiers as well as their official mascot, Domhnall the Irish Wolfhound.

Due to the difficult weather, Domhnall’s handler Aidan Cathcart was concerned he might not behave, saying: ‘He is the first guy on the parade. He’s the main guy.’

However, all seemed to go to plan and Catherine sweetly fastened a shamrock to the mascot, who she has become quite familiar with over the years of attending the parade.

The couple managed to escape the cold weather by attending the Guardsman’s Lunch, where the Duke of Cambridge happily sipped on a pint of Guinness, but heavily pregnant Catherine stuck to water.

This will be one of the very last public appearances from the Duchess, as she is due to give birth to her third child in a matter of weeks.

Ahead of the birth, the Royal Family has created a new webpage dedicated to the baby, which will provide updates on the birth ‘as they become available’.

Support Women, Support The World With Sweaty Betty

Wed, 03/14/2018 - 16:30

Sweaty Betty has amped up girl power on the high street launching a new campaign to celebrate women all year round...

Last week we celebrated International Women’s Day. A day where women everywhere were celebrated: McDonald’s flipped their iconic arches  and Kim Kardashian West launched her new feminist Kimoji’s to (just a little bit of) controversy.

However, along with team at Sweaty Betty thought that as 2018 already feels like the year of the woman we should continue the celebration all year long. And that is one celebration team LOOK can get behind!

It might only be March but it already feels like it’s the year of unrivalled empowerment for women.

2018 marks 100 years since women were, finally, awarded the right to vote! It would almost feel criminal if we didn’t dedicate this entire year to brave and powerful women who inspired us then and now.

So for International Women’s Day and beyond Sweaty Betty have created two exclusive tees to celebrate girl power and nothing makes quite a statement like a slogan tee!

Sweaty Betty founder Tamara Hill-Norton shared that ‘we created these limited edition tees to celebrate strong and powerful women worldwide’ and with her brands mission to ’empower women through fitness and beyond’ it seemed silly to limit the support to just a single day.

The launch of the tees coincides with the brands 20th birthday adding a personal element to the clothing as they are designed using the brands signature technical fabrics. With a tee emblazoned with ‘Support Women, Support The World’ and, a vest with ‘Sisterhood’ the bold slogan T-Shirts has returned with a bang.

Outside the collection the LOOK office love the navy ‘woman almighty’ light knit which would be perfect with everything from yoga pants to loveworn jeans and is an oh-so easy way to show your solidarity.

Shop the empowering styles below and wear yours to yoga with pride…

Holly Willoughby Changed Her Skirt Before Going On Air As It Was ‘Too Short’ For TV

Tue, 03/13/2018 - 14:13

The This Morning lady took to Instagram to share her skirt swap...

It looks like Holly Willoughby was forced to change her outfit before filming This Morning, as her skirt was deemed ‘too short’ for television.

The ITV presenter has become known for sharing #OOTD posts with her Instagram followers each day, with many hanging on her every bargain buy.

(Left) Holly Willoughby’s first outfit, (Right) what she wore on air…

But on Tuesday morning, her stylist Angie Smith shared a photo of ‘the one that got away’ – apparently, because it was a little too revealing for the breakfast show.

Whilst we think that women should be able to wear whatever they like, many fans did point out the fact that Holly spends a lot of time sitting on the famous This Morning sofa – and we all know the struggle of continuously having to pull something down when you’re seated.

. #Repost @angiesmithstudio The one that got away #TooShortForTM

A post shared by Holly Willoughby (@hollywilloughby) on Mar 13, 2018 at 3:24am PDT

Sharing the posts on her own Instagram account, Holly captioned the ‘before’ snap: ‘#Repost @angiesmithstudio
The one that got away  #TooShortForTM’.

Fans have shared their thoughts in the comment section, with one writing: ‘Love it! What a shame you couldnt wear [sic]’.

Another added: ‘Not too short at all it looks lovely…’

As long as Holly is comfortable and confident in her outfit of choice, that’s all that matters to us.

Say Hello To Farnol and Your New Capsule Wardrobe

Tue, 03/13/2018 - 12:52

London designed, the FARNOL collection launched online this week. With the objective to change how modern consumers think about their wardrobe and their edit of 100 items is set to change everything...

Consisting of just twenty pieces each season FARNOL’s debut collection is divided equally between mens and womenswear, to allow easy styling through versatile everyday wear.

If, like us, you love an everyday staple and are keen to streamline your wardrobe FARNOL’s everyday edit will tick all the boxes. Made from high quality cottons and cashmere the collection starts at £15 for classic tees going up to £120 for a lovely luxurious cashmere dress.

Founder Mitchel Farnol, and co-creator Gareth Olyott, noticed how our spending habits were ‘excessive’ as we each style we clutter our wardrobes with the seasons ‘must-haves’ before forgetting about them the following season.

FARNOL’s ethos aims to eliminate this way of shopping by creating a clothing line, which can be worn throughout the seasons with its neutral colour pallet and timeless designs: ‘We’ve created a collection which travels through the different lifestyles and times of the everyday person. This is showcased in our ‘Everyday Collection’ and is channelled through our simple silhouettes, and, subtle colour palette.’

The new clothing line allows for styling to become simpler and our once cluttered wardrobe to become a sanctuary of unity as the pieces compliment each other harmoniously. Sophisticated cuts and a neutral colour pallet allows for an effortlessly chic vibe to be achieved easily.

With styles already selling out fast we thought we’d share nine styles you can shop now before it’s too late!

There May Have Been A Significant Meaning Behind Meghan Markle’s White Beret

Tue, 03/13/2018 - 11:52

The fashion accessory could have been a subtle tribute to Princess Diana...

You’ve probably seen photos of Meghan Markle everywhere this morning. Why? Well, she stepped out, once again, with her fiancé Prince Harry, this time attending a special service at Westminster Abbey in celebration of Commonwealth Day.

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were also in attendance, and it marked Meghan’s very first official engagement with the Queen.

Naturally, Meghan knocked it out of the park with her latest style offering. The former Suits actress opted for a navy dress and matching court shoes, which she teamed with a tailored Amanda Wakeley coat and a white beret.

The 36-year-old is known for putting a little meaning behind her sartorial decisions, so people have been quick to draw some significance out of this #OOTD.

Her headwear was by milliner Stephen Jones, who just so happened to design berets for the late Princess Diana, according to reports.

Just last year, Jones told British Vogue: ‘She really loved the world of fashion, and she liked the people in it.

‘It was an escape for her.’

This could mean that Meghan’s choice was a direct nod to her future husband’s mother, and it wouldn’t be the first time. Her engagement ring is known to include two stones that once belonged to the Princess of Wales.

Others have pointed out that this simple cap has a rich – and sometimes political – history, particularly when it comes to the fight for equality. Meghan is a proud advocate for women’s rights, so could her choice of accessory have been a way for her to express her feminist beliefs?

The beret is a style statement that’s gone in and out of mainstream fashion since the early 1900s, so perhaps Meghan just liked the way it looked? And, it goes without saying, it looked fabulous on her.

Keep the fashion inspo coming, Markle.

Millie Mackintosh Has Announced That She’s Closed Her Fashion Label

Tue, 03/13/2018 - 11:37

The ex-Made In Chelsea star revealed the news on Instagram

Millie Mackintosh has announced that she’s shutting down her fashion business.

The ex-Made In Chelsea star, 28, took to Instagram last night to reveal the news, with the Evening Standard reporting that it’ll be liquidated owing hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Millie launched the company – which is officially called Cammac Venture Limited –  four years ago, selling her pieces online and through ASOS. On Instagram, she detailed how it’s been a ‘top seller’, but it seems that wasn’t enough to keep it afloat.

A post shared by Millie Mackintosh (@milliemackintosh) on Mar 12, 2018 at 12:42pm PDT

See: Millie Mackintosh Says She’s ‘Not In A Rush’ To Marry Hugo Taylor

She explained: ‘As someone who has always been passionate about fashion, I realise I have been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to build my own fashion business over the past four years.

‘So, it is with great sadness that I have had to make the very tough decision to close it. Despite our best efforts and being a top seller with a number of our stockists, the financial climate in the fashion industry has proved immensely and the business is no longer sustainable.

‘The unwavering support from friends, family, the industry and customers has made this decision even harder.

We have no doubt that Millie will have plenty of success with future ventures.

Ear Piercings: 21 Fresh New Ideas

Mon, 03/12/2018 - 15:15

From tragus to daith piercings - we've got all the ear piercing inspo you'll ever need

Ear piercings are having a major moment and the coolest way to work the trend is by mix and matching single studs and hoops. So the more holes you’ve got, the more effective the look. Capiche?

But there’s no need to rush off to your nearest piercing parlour in a panic; Asos’s wear-anywhere ear cuffs or Claire’s clip on hoops are a great alternative if you don’t fancy punching any more holes in your cartilage.

If you are however considering another ear-embellishment then why not follow in the footsteps of the fash pack who are all getting pierced with dainty and delicate high-end jewellery. Yup, gone are the days of chunky steel hoops with a fugly ball bearing fastening, this summer is all about luxe lobes. Jewellery designer and piercer to the stars, Maria Tash, may have something to do with it. She’s pierced everyone from Beyonce to Gwyneth using her own body jewellery line, Venus. If the piercing itself didn’t hurt her celeb fans then the bill might have done; her earrings can cost anything up to the region of $23k! Ouch!

For something a little more realistic check out BVLA aka Body Vision Los Angeles – a range of luxury body jewellery that’s now being used by many top piercers as their weapon of choice across a number of stores and boutiques in the UK including London’s Love Hate Social Club. These jewels will set you back about £60 but seeing as they mostly feature high quality metals, semi-precious stones and even diamonds we can kinda see why!

For those of you wanting to work with what you’ve already got take a visit to Dinny Hall – here you can browse a tonne of statement studs all sold separately with mix and matching in mind. We’re sold!

A Love Letter To… Topshop’s Joni Jeans

Mon, 03/12/2018 - 14:32

LOOK's Laura Jane Turner just wanted an opportunity to gush about her first love. And, she was called Joni...

I’m pear-shaped and proud.

At around the age of twelve (yup, I was an early bloomer) puberty came a’knocking. Along with the spots, periods and awkward mood swings, I developed some pretty thick thighs, wide hips and a pretty chunky behind.

I’m all about loving my natural shape. But, as much as I’ve embraced my curves, they don’t come without their hang-ups.

One of the biggest hurdles? Shopping for jeans.

I’m sure that most you reading this will agree; once you’ve found the perfect pair, the holy grail, The One in denim form, you don’t want to let go.

My jeans epiphany happened a long while ago. During one particularly stressful ‘jeans shop’, after trying on what felt like my gazillionth pair, I found them.

If my life was a movie (just waiting on that phone call to come through any day now), my changing room mirror would have been surrounded by a golden glow and I would have had a chorus of ‘Hallelujah’ playing out behind me.

See: Best Topshop Jeans – What Happened When We Tried Them On IRL

I’d met Topshop’s Joni. And, in that moment, I knew I’d found my life partner and that I’d never stray.

Well if I’m being real with you, at £36 a pair, I have been known to invest in a cheaper option. But nothing quite fits like Joni. They’re super high-waisted and, to be blunt, suck everything in around my belly area. I always make sure I have at least one pair in my ‘drobe.

What’s more, by some wizardry that I still don’t understand, I can wear them sans belt and they don’t leave that gape around the back of the waist. It’s probably something to do with the elastane in the material, but magic sounds a lot more fun, right?

Buy now: Topshop’s Joni Jeans, £36

See: Bripped Jeans – We Took Kylie Jenner’s Controversial Jeans Trend To The Streets

It seems as though I’m not the only one, as a recent statistic shows that the high street destination sells a pair of go-to denim every 10 seconds.

That’s great and all, but I hope that all of these people aren’t snapping up my favourite jeans.

Topshop have a job for life now. And that’s keeping me in Joni jeans.

The Best Winter Dresses To Brave The Chill In Style

Mon, 03/12/2018 - 13:00

We've hand-picked the best on the high street...

Winter dresses come and go, but here at LOOK HQ we believe in looking good and feeling great whatever the season, which is why we’ve gone to the effort of finding the very best winter dresses to buy this year. Indeed, they’re comfy and cosy, but equally as chic as every other season.

See: Wedding Guest Dresses: The Look Edit

When the sunny weather is well and truly gone and winter comes knocking, it’s time to rethink your key wardrobe essentials.

The first step is to rethink texture; it’s now all about heavy-duty materials that will keep you warm on those cold days – go for tweed and woven fabrics, which will work just as well in your work wardrobe as it will your off-duty, and with the picks we have here, you’ll look like you just walked off the catwalk.

See: The Best Winter Boots To Grab For 2017

Ribbed knits are a key trend, and what better way to wear it than working it in a midi dress style? It’s the easiest throw-on winter dress for the season – no ironing required, might we add.

As for prints, don’t ditch them – just swap them. Choose deep winter florals over bright blooms and warm tartans over colourful checks.


These are your fail-safe staples that can be layered up with knits and a coat, paired with fishnets and flats for ultimate comfort.

Karen Millen Striped Dress, £160


H&M Patterned Dress, £49.99


Topshop Long Sleeve Maxi Dress by YAS, £130



Do you feel that often your options for autumn and winter dresses are very party focused? We’ve found the best winter dresses that aren’t all about sequins.

The greatest thing about these gorgeous day dresses, are that you’ll wear them again and again – AND you can style and layer them, so you get more outfits for your buck! What’s not to like?

HOBBS Thelma Dress, £110


Monsoon Printed Lena Midi Dress, £79


Zara Printed Midi Dress, £39.99




And for when the temperature really drops, you’ll need some dress-spiration for keeping warm, while still looking stylish. These cool casual winter dresses would look UH-MAZING paired with knee-high boots, chunky-knit jumpers in bright colours (we’re all obsessed with red this season) and almost floor-length, oversized wool coats. To up the cosy-factor, add a wide-brimmed wool hat and super long scarf you can wrap around.

River Island Burgundy Stripe Wrap-Front Midi Dress, £55


Mango Flower Embroidered Denim Dress, £59.99


What are you waiting for?

Get shopping…

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Pretty Presents She’ll Love

Fri, 03/09/2018 - 10:10

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, but you knew that right? If not- don’t fret! Our experts have scoured the high street and compiled a list of show stopping gifts, guaranteed to make your mum feel special on the big day.

Mother Daughter Spa Day, from £180, Champneys

Of course we love our Mums 365 days of the year, but Sunday 11th March is an entire day dedicated to showing yours just how much you truly appreciate her.

Jewellery, pyjamas and candles are solid favourites for Mothers Day, but does anyone do candles better than Jo Malone? We think not! And what Mothers Day would be complete without the forever favourite chocolates and flowers? Charbonnel et Walker and Bloom and Wild definitely check that box whilst eliminating the cliché.

If ‘spending time with you’ is your mums most cherished gift, why not spend time together whilst pampering yourselves at Champneys Spa? Or getting a culture fix at the V&A’s highly anticipated Frida Kahlo exhibition? Treating yourself at the same time!

Whether your mum is queen of the kitchen, an avid gardener or a cocktail lover we have selected gifts that suit all! Ranging from £13.50 up… Because we all know cost doesn’t equal love.

Or, match with your Mum this Mother’s Day and simply pop into Selfridges Oxford street where Kurt Geiger are hosting an exclusive hand-painted monogram service (from noon to 7pm on Saturday 10th). With prices starting at just £45 for a purse to £199 for their iconic London tote it’s a lovely way to make your gift to her that little more special.

After hours of sorting through hundreds of candidates, take a look at our absolute winners of Mothers Day gifts. Not that we are competing with our siblings?!

PS: No ‘World’s Best Mum’ mugs included.

If you already have your Mothers Day present wrapped and ready to go, why not take a look for yourself? We promise you will fall in love with at least one of our gifts!

17 Sassy Female Bosses From The 90s And ’00s We Must Remember On Women’s Day

Thu, 03/08/2018 - 11:23

Happy #InternationalWomensDay!

To celebrate International Women’s on 8th March we’ve pulled together a list of some of the most empowering, kick ass women/girls from the nineties and noughties.

This bunch of babes inspired us when we were young and continue to do so now. GIRL POWER!

Rose, Titanic

Being forced into marriage with a dastardly beast of a man? No ta. Rose defied her mother and society by falling in love with a Jack. Yeah, the ending broke our heart BUT if Rose hadn’t taken the leap with Jack, she might never have posed naked, danced on tables and had steamy sex in a car.

Bianca, 10 Things I Hate About You

Bianca spends most of the movie willing to sell her sister (literally) for the chance to go on a date with the most popular girl in school. Until the finale when she EPICLY stands up for what she believes in. Yes, Bi.

Ariel, The Little Mermaid

Ariel is an adventurer, totally unafraid of giving up everything she knows for a new life “in the sun.” She even rescues Prince Eric, turning the whole Disney tradition on its head.

Mathilda, Leon

Just 12-years-old and harder than French hitman Leon, Natalie Portman’s debut role was as pint-sized badass Mathilda. Her wardrobe was also incredible.

Rachel Green, Friends

She might have started out as a spoilt princess but Friends’ babe Rachel Green soon learned to stand on her own two feet, working up a sweat in Coffee Perk before making her own luck in the fashion world. She also always had her pals backs and taught to never accept anything other that respect, loyalty and love from boyfriends/girlfriends.

Kelly Kapowski, Saved By The Bell

Who didn’t want to be Kelly when they were growing up? Her mega quiff, floral jeans and teeny crop tops used to drive geeky Zack wild. But Kelly was way too cool to care.

Elle Woods, Legally Blonde

When Elle’s perfect boyfriend breaks up with her she doesn’t stew in a bucket of Haagen Dazs all night whilst sobbing over old his Instagram selfies. No, she gets into Harvard and proves anyone who ever judged or doubted her wrong. Bad. Ass.

Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion

“You know what I realised? I don’t care if you don’t like us, you’re a bad person with an ugly heart.” R & M hitting their reunion in co-ordinating outfits to end up telling their old high school bullies they just don’t care anymore was a little slice of heave. Proof meanies shouldn’t be tolerated.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Having to vanquish demons and vamps when you have homework is a drag but Buffy handled it all with sass and style. Her snappy one liners and wicked lipliner were also total #goals.

Sabrina The Teenage Witch

Being a teenager in high school is tough. Even if you’re a witch with wicked powers. But Sabrina balanced life as a teen with witchy duties perfectly. She did have sassy Salem the cat to help, of course…

Lauren Conrad, The Hills

When your response to the question, what’s your favourite position?” is, “CEO” it’s safe to say you’re a modern feminine icon of sorts. All hail LC.

Cher Horowitz, Clueless

We’d be here days if we counted the ways we love Cher. So let’s just quote her class presentation… “In conclusion, may I please remind you that it does not say ‘RSVP’ on the Statue of Liberty.” Hear, hear.

Spice Girls

It wouldn’t be a GIRL POWER appreciation list without the original purveyors.

’90s Fashion: The Trends We All Rocked

Mon, 03/05/2018 - 18:00

*Sigh* The ’90s. What a decade. From The Big Breakfast to Britpop and beyond, if you were lucky enough to be a ’90s teen then you knew how important it was to be rocking the latest fashions. And dude, were we spoiled for choice. In ten short years a style revolution was born, and if you were right there with us (watching Buffy whilst goofing around with your Tamagotchi) then you’ll happily admit to owning at least one, or all of the below. Have we missed anything?

1. Buffalo Shoes

The Spice Girls really started something with Buffalo. Pretty soon we were all bouncing around on sky-high sponge platform trainers thinking we looked the shizz.

The Spice Girls loved Buffalo.

2. Skirts Over Trousers

Lucky you if you were one of them girls that had an actual skant (see what we did there?) hybrid. The rest of us had to make do wearing an actual skirt over trousers…

Zoë always knew what looks worked. The girls from B*witched rocked skirts over pants…with a side of double denim.

3. Bhindis

It was the small part of Gwen Stefani’s look that we could pull off at home without having to do a thousand sit-ups a night. Thanks Gwen.

Gwen Stefani ticks so many ’90s trend boxes it blows our minds. Plus Alisha’s Attic knew how to rock some bhindi action.

SEE: 15 Trends ALL 90s Girls Will Know (And Love)…

4. Backless Tops

Less was definitely more in the ‘90s, and that included shameless back flashing. The more you bared, the cooler you were. Total nightmare for those of us generously blessed in the boob department.

Mel C knew how to bring some back to her ’90s look.

5. Babydoll Dresses

It started with Whigfield. It ended around ‘95. The high street is now full of them again. Up the My So Called Life ante by wearing a white tee underneath.

Whigfield and the original ’90s IT girls Tara Palmer Tomkinson & Tamara Beckwith…nailing a Babydoll.

6. The Cult Street Brands

Naff Naff jackets and Kickers shoes were essential fifth year fashion; if you didn’t rock at least one of the two you may as well have moved schools.

SEE: 13 Toys We Totally Loved In The ’90s and ’00s

7. The Classy Brands

We all aspired to wear chic French imports Morgan and Kookai (if just for the trophy plastic shopping bags) or quirky Red Or Dead. Let’s face it, there came an age where Tammy Girl just didn’t cut it anymore.

The Red Or Dead store in Covent Garden. A ’90s mecca.

8. Pedal Pushers

As seen on Geri Halliwell and Denise van Outen, these babies made everyone look like a confused 1950’s teenager. Not at all flattering on the crotch area.

Geri Halliwell pretty much brought back ’90s pedal pushers all by herself.

9. Dragon & Flame Motifs

Remember Natalie Imbruglia’s tee in Torn? Yeah, don’t pretend you didn’t try and hunt that one down.

Natalie Imbruglia: Beth from Neighbours cuts hair. Lisa Kudrow and Christina Ricci – sporting a rather fetching pair of flame motif/pedal pusher hybrids.

10. Butterfly Hair Clips

They came in packs of twenty, but when it came to artfully twisting your hair into that signature ‘90s updo you only ever could find one. We’re still baffled twenty years on.

Zoë knew butterfly clips were the backbone of every ’90s twist n’spike updo. Jen has gone for the rope effect here…with butterflies.

11. Combat Trousers

The All Saints ladies made utility pants a bona fide trend. It basically meant we all walked around with our knickers hanging out.

The girls from All Saints championed the low-slung look.

12. Satin Anything

Shiny satin dresses or maxi skirts (preferably cut on the bias) were the a-list go-to for red carpet glam. Drew Barrymore liked to accessorize hers with a crochet poncho. What a maverick.

Scream queen Neve Campbell loved a bit of satin. And Drew. The words escape us.

13. Mesh Tops

Anything netted or see-through meant you had major wardrobe game back in the ‘90s. Making your own out of ratty old school tights was perfectly acceptable.

Trust Mel C to work another key ’90s trend.

14. Knee High Boots

A platform heel was essential, and if you had a pair in white PVC you were the actual bomb.

Patsy Palmer AKA Bianca from Eastenders. Girl had it going on.

15. Tiny Backpacks

Completely impractical yet totally uh-mazing. Your choice of Disney character/sports drawstring/pastel fluffy blob (that got a bit matted) pretty much defined your teenage identity for like, all time.

Drew Barrymore once again is rocking our ’90s world.

16. Leopard Print Coats

From rock stars to ladettes, a leopard print coat gave you instant pub-landlady glam.

Madonna had a moment in the ’90s. Wearing leopard print.

17. Knee High Socks

*sigh* Clueless was like our ‘90s movie style bible, and whatever Cher wore, we wore…even if it looked a bit ridiculous for shopping with your dad in Halfords.

Alicia Silverstone & Shannon Doherty: Two ’90s icons in long socks.

SEE: Clueless: Team LOOK’s Top 13 Quotes Ever

18. Rave Gear

Gilets, asymmetric zips, cyber punk braids, parachute pants; yep, didn’t we all flirt a bit with the rave trend? Before realizing that the outlandishly large trousers just soaked up ALL the rain. And that we looked a bit of a div…

Jacqui Blake & Zoë Ball: ready for a rave.

19. Square Sunglasses

Yeah. What was with this trend? The Appleton sisters were all over it.

All Saints loved some squared off sunglasses.

20. Hanky-Hem Tops

Because that cheeky little point hid the bellybutton piercing your mum forbade you to get.

Mel C makes yet another appearance on our list….

21. Retro Sportswear

Damon Albarn (swoon) pretty much created the need for obscenely tight sports tees and Adidas Sambas.

Blur were the bona fide style fitties of the ’90s.

22. Bad Hats

Hands up who didn’t own, or aim to own a Kangol hat? You know who you are. Then there was the Bez bucket, and the Blossom-style velvet floppy style…pinned up at the front, and accessorized with a ridiculously large fake daisy.

90’s hats. No one was safe…

23. Stripy or Patterned Tights

We bought them from shops that sold incense and wore them on mufti days with our 19 odd-hole DM boots. Cause we liked Nirvana and were ‘different’.

24. PVC

Anything faux leather, preferably in some kind of silver or cosmic effect appealed to our developing cyber goth sensibility. And like rave gear (see above), it wound up just making us look a bit naff. And don’t even get us started on how difficult it was to sit on vinyl bus seats…

Denise van Outen & Emma Bunton looking tres shiny.

25. Chokers

From thick velvet Victoriana style, to those weird plastic twisty things, every teenage ‘90s girl owned a choker. The cool sixth form girls rocked ones with ying yang symbols, and we coveted them from the far end of the playground.

Sadie Frost & Kelly Brooke: making the choker work for them.

26. Mohair

Fuzzy mohair jumpers in a pastel shades gave us a kooky Bjork edge. They also meant we left whipsy balls of residue all over mum’s new three-piece suite.

’90s Bjork gave us the fluffy sweater.

27. Midriff

The ULTIMATE ‘90s accessory. If you weren’t baring your belly, you were basically your nan.

’90s midriff was essential. Gwen Stefani & Nicole Appleton had it down pat.

28. A Baby-G

Prime arm candy for the technologically savvy nineties fashionista. The Baby-G had tons of functions, came in a whole rainbow of colours and if you owned one, you were pretty much winning at life – especially if it was pink. The best bit? They’re about to make a comeback – as showcased by LOOK’s Fashion News Editor Gemma – to celebrate the brands 21st birthday. Time to dig yours out, or invest in a shiny new one!

Lingerie Love: Underwear You’ll Feel Amazing In

Mon, 03/05/2018 - 12:30

Date or no date, we’ve rounded up the hottest new high street lingerie that will have you looking and feeling your best this Valentines day.

Instagram: @newlook

Lingerie really does have the potential to make or break an outfit. In fact, no matter what any woman says, there’s no denying that a good lingerie set can be the ultimate confidence-booster and, in turn, give your look the finishing touch it needs. Whether it’s a casual jersey ensemble, or a little lacy number, here at LOOK we are adamant that lingerie is the key to making a woman look and feel fantastic (trust us, we’re talking from experience!) Man or no man, lingerie shopping sits firmly at the top of our list of favourite things to do, so we’ve decided to put together our edit of the best pieces available now. Aren’t we good to you?

From Marks & Spencer to Topshop and Freya to Figleaves, the high street is in pretty good stead when it comes to lingerie. Red hot lace numbers permeate the shelves of Primark whilst H&M plays host to some of the best bralets we’ve ever laid eyes upon.

But the best part? The lingerie we’ve handpicked for you comes in at under £6 per piece – for something totally timeless (and essential), we’d say that’s pretty good going. As if that wasn’t enough, the underwear as outerwear trend is still taking the fashion world by storm since hitting the catwalks last year. If you’re feeling brave, why not try a boyfriend blazer and bra combo, or a silk cami paired with a black biker jacket. Go on, we dare you.

All in all, we’d say lingerie is having a bit of a moment right now – and we’re jumping right on board. Join us?

Oscars 2018: See Our Favourite Looks From The Red Carpet

Mon, 03/05/2018 - 07:21

Margot Robbie, we bow down...

The Oscars 2018 are finally upon us, and all eyes are on the red carpet to see the arrival of Hollywood’s A-list in their dazzlingly best…

Taking place at the Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles, the 90th annual Academy Awards arrivals kicked off in fitting style, with all eyes on J.Law (who in true, traditional Jennifer Lawrence Oscars fashion has become a viral meme again because she’s just so damn relatable), in a dark metallic Dior gown, featuring some barely there spaghetti straps for just the right amount of of 90s nostalgia.

The Oscar winning actress kicked off the metallic trend on the red carpet, with Sandra Bullock (in Louis Vuitton), Lupita Nyong’o (in Versace) and Gal Gadot  (in Givenchy), all following suit in shimmering metallics – no doubt referencing the infamous golden statuette – with Twitter in overdrive calling Lupita an actual IRL Oscar, which tbf, is pretty accurate.

Alongside metallics, the A-list went all in with the lace embellishment, full skirts and white and blush tones in a nod to bridal wear: Allison Williams (Armani Privé), Mira Sorvino, Camila Alves (Vivienne Westwood) and Margot Robbie (in an incredible Chanel Haute Couture gown) all opted for silhouettes that wouldn’t look out of place walking down the aisle.

And in one epic Oscars takeover, Nicole Kidman slayed in a vivid blue Armani Privé gown with romantic oversized bow detail and proved once again, she owns the red carpet. Talking about Oscars Moments, can we all please take a second to remember this gem from last year, when Nicole Kidman taught us all how to clap…

Jennifer Lawrence And Emma Stone Shared A Hilarious Moment At The Oscars

Mon, 03/05/2018 - 06:58

LOL, you guys...

Jennifer Lawrence was on top form at the Oscars this year.

Hollywood’s elite stepped out for Sunday night’s 90th Annual Academy Awards, in a celebration of the very best in film. Of course, the A-list guests put their best foot forward on the red carpet, but J-Law’s BFF moment with fellow actress Emma Stone didn’t go unnoticed by viewers either.

Poking fun at her friend, Jennifer clearly couldn’t pass up the opportunity for some laughs when host Jimmy Kimmel made a funny about last year’s now-famous Best Picture gaffe. You may remember that La La Land was mistakenly announced as the winner.

‘This year, when you hear your name called, don’t get up right away… Give us a minute,’ he told the audience and, of course, the camera honed in on Emma’s reaction.

Jennifer was also caught on film, pointing and laughing at her gal pal.

— best of emma stone (@picsofstone) March 5, 2018

Viewers spotted the moment and wasted very little time in taking to social media to talk about it.

‘#JenniferLawrence & #EmmaStone’s friendship is already a highlight of the Oscars,’ one wrote.

‘Enjoying Jennifer Lawrence sat next to Emma Stone. Would like to be sat on that row plz,’ another added.

Yup. We want in too.

So This Was The Stand-Out Moment From The Oscars That You’ll See Everywhere Today

Mon, 03/05/2018 - 05:48

From the editors of Marie Claire

Frances McDormand was given the gong for best actress at the Oscars, for her role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

The 60-year-old came out on top in a very strong category, which included Meryl Streep, Margot Robbie and Lady Bird star Saoirse Ronan. But she wasn’t about to let the moment pass without sharing it with her comrades.

Taking to the stage to accept her award, McDormand made a point of giving a kickass speech.

Telling the audience that she had ‘some things to say,’ Frances highlighted the need to tell more female stories.

‘Look around, ladies and gentleman, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed,’ she said. ‘Don’t talk to us about it at the parties tonight. Invite us into your offices… and we’ll tell you all about them.’

Frances McDormand asked all the female nominees in every #Oscars category to stand up during her Best Actress speech pic.twitter.com/d1cQmY3Etr

— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) March 5, 2018

‘If I may be so honoured to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight,’ she said. ‘Meryl if you do it everybody else will…’

Of course, Meryl Streep obliged.

She ended her impassioned moment with two words: ‘Inclusion rider.’

According to Dr. Philip Goff, President of The Center for Policing Equity, an inclusion rider is ‘a clause in an actor’s contract that requires the cast and crew be diverse in order to retain the actor.’

Talk about a stand-out moment.
