My style icons #1

Kiernan Shipka

Kiernan Shipka is best known forplaying  Sally Draper on the Mad Men series. She golfs, she cooks and she sings. Her inspiration is none other than Grace Kelly. This 12 year old girl has more style than any adult I’ve ever seen. Whenever she steps out for a red carpet her outfits are gorgeous and are appropriate for her age; something that is very rare for a girl her age in  Hollywood and all over the world. I am in complete awe of her and how adorable she is.

At the Young Hollywood Awards 2012 wearing Miu Miu

At the Ralph Lauren Girls Collection wearing Ralp Lauren

At the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party wearing an Opening Ceremony dress

At the première of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’  She is absolutely perfect here

If these pictures haven’t convinced you then maybe this video of a peek into her wardrobe might. She is so eloquent, right now I would die to be her. So I guess you can say that this is a friendly reminder that Kiernan Shipka is 12 years old and dresses better than you.


My love-hate relationship with platform shoes

I’m just going to come up and say it. I don’t (particularly) like platform shoes. They are not elegant shoes that make you think: I’d wear that on the red carpet. In fact do you ever see celebrities wearing platform shoes on the red carpet? No!

The platform shoe that made me hate all of the others is none other than the Jeffrey Campbell ‘Litas’. The heel is chunky, the platform is chunky and every blogger and their mum owns them. Their not particularly elegant and when you wear them you look like a giant. In fact I don’t even know how people can lift their feet with such big shoes attached to them.

We all know that fashion is not about comfort but for those who wear platforms their lives are that little bit easier. They’re not actually walking on 12 or 13cm. Be a lady all the way and own up to wearing elegant heels.

Even 69 year old shoe guru, Manolo Blahnik says “I’m suspicious of platforms, they’re the wrong shape for the leg.” So if the king of shoe-making says so himself who are we to disagree?
