It was only last month we were oogling and then promptly Googling the stylish Georgia May Jagger when she was in Sydney for Sunglass Hut, but it was her red lace dress at a London cocktail party a couple of years ago that first had us drooling. The blonde bombshell is known for having a pretty sexy look, and we think this red number took her to the next level. The winged eyeliner and gentle curls made it game, set, match. Want to copy? Yes, us too. Let's go!
Navy blue is having a moment. Every second Autumn/Winter '13 showing I attend has a sea of the classic hue (cue internal fist pump). Bella too has been bitten by the navy blue bug — expounding the appeal of an inky smoky eye, just this morning. We're far too impatient to wait until the weather turns cold to try out the trend, so we went through our Icon Kit files to find something a little more seasonally relevant. May we introduce ... Poppy Delevingne, wearing Louis Vuitton at the label's S/S '12 Paris fashion week show way back in October of last year. Still so good.
There's been plenty of amazing Emma Watson fashion moments we could write about, but this one, from November 2010, is by far our favourite. She'd just cut her hair off following the filming of the final Harry Potter movie, and the world (Sugar included), fell in love all over again. This was the moment that Emma blossomed into a woman, and her Raphael Lopez dress was just perfect. Her legs looked next level — so brown and shiny! — and her wet-look hair was a beauty moment in itself. The whole look is very party and the feathers bring the perfect touch of festive. Wanna copy? Let's go.
There's no way that Bella and I could not include Rachel Bilson somewhere in the Icon Kit mix, so today we're shining a light on one of the cutie patootie's best-ever looks; that 3.1 Phillip Lim rose gold short suit. Ms Bilson worked this directional look with her usual effortless style for a Vogue fête way back in June of 2009, but three years on this high-shine ensemble still has major sway with us. Step inside to see how steal a little bit of Rachel's iconic style for your fine selves. . .
This week has been awash with trackside style; from Saturday's Derby Day to Tuesday's Melbourne Cup, to tomorrow's Stakes Day — it's been all systems hats, heels and horses at Sugar HQ. We've been reminiscing over our favourite all-time trackside looks, and there's one favourite across the board: Kate Bosworth in Collette Dinnigan at Derby Day way back in 2006. Bella and I have put our collective skills to work to show you how you can recreate this iconic look in time for the Spring racing season's last hurrah. Wanna see how?
Some things will always look good together. A white tee and jeans. A little black dress and a glass of champagne. A pair of denim cut-offs and a tan. The latter was demonstrated to perfection by Alexa Chung, way back in July of 2010, at the Mulberry pool party in LA. We've kept this look on file for a reason; the worn-in cut-offs teamed with the luxey/sexy/touch-me appeal of the satin blush blouse gives is an easy sensuality that would slay any date night dress code. Add in her glowy complexion, bronzed pins and ahead-of-her-time nail art and you've got one iconic look worth emualating. Step on in to see how . . .
It's fair to say that Olivia Palermo never gets it wrong on the red carpet or front row, but we firmly believe her best fashion and beauty moment ever, happened during Paris couture fashion week earlier this year. Looking almost edible in pink lace Valentino, the celebeauty added a touch of glamour with sparkly ankle-strap Giuseppe Zanotti heels and chic cat-eye shades. Her hair was her signature shade of glossy and her nails were cherry red, making for an unlikely colour combo hero. Oh Miss P, you so fine.
There's something timeless about an all-white look for Summer, which is why we've reached into the archives to pull out this gem for today's Icon Kit. It makes your (faux) tan glow, your pearly whites pop, and gives the impression that you've just stepped off a yacht somewhere in the Mediterranean (stay with us here). Gwyneth Paltrow knows the power of a show-white sheath, knocking the socks of every paparazzi and his SLR with that caped creation by Tom Ford at this year's Oscars. Whilst you may not have a red rug to trot down anytime soon, we think GP's iconic look would make a brilliant start-point for the Spring-season's social calendar; weddings, Christmas parties ... heck! Any time you need to frock up. It's as easy as A plus B. . .
It was a sunny day in Old Blighty back in 2006, when supe Kate Moss stepped out in high-waisted flares and a grey t-shirt. This simple, '70s inspired outfit sent the entire world into a spin and saw flared jeans land in stores the world over. Her hair was typically effortless, with what looked to be barely and product and little to no makeup. The no makeup, makeup look is more than a thing right now — and in true Mossy style, she's been rocking years before us. Sigh. In this week's Icons Kit, we channel Kate Moss, the'70s dream.
We'd like to introduce you to a new weekly feature: The Icons. And when I say we, I mean Bella and I. Fashion and beauty (especially in the Sugar office!) are firm friends, and when it comes to recreating an iconic look you can't have one without the other. In the spirit of stylish collaboration, we're going to recount some of our all-time favourite, made-us-go-weak-at-the-knees fashion moments — and give you the tools to pay homage to them at home. We're kicking things off with perhaps one of the greatest special-occasion celebrity looks of all time — Kate Bosworth in her feathered Prada frock and vampy lip at the 2012 Met Gala Ball. From the dress to the updo, our fashion + beauty maths will be only formula you need memorise. Ready?
