Top TV Shows - Part 1

Image source: Pinterest.

Something you may not know about me is that I'm obsessed with TV shows. There's nothing better than sitting down to start a new show, and then accidentally watching 10 episodes in a row (this has happened to me multiple times). Some would call it sad, but honestly I think it's impressive that I managed to watch all six seasons of LOST in under a month. Anyway, I thought I'd take you though my top TV shows (excluding comedy and reality).

Agents of Shield
This is my new favourite show. I love Marvel films (I'm obsessed with Captain America) and I was so excited when Agents of Shield was announced, especially because Phil Coulson was going to be the lead character. It's a little slow at the start but after the tenth episode everything starts to come together and leads into two brilliant last episodes.

Bates Motel
So this is supposed be a quite serious horror/thriller show, but I genuinely can't take it seriously. Maybe it's because I can only think of Norman Bates as Charlie from Charlie and the Chocolate factory. Or maybe because they've made Norma Bates ridiculously crazy and over the top. Who knows? Anyway, I really like this show - I think it's really interesting and can be quite funny due to the over top nature of it.

This show is absolutely amazing. I literally could talk about it all day. But instead all I'm going to say is David Tennant is ridiculously good in it and you should all go watch it if you haven't already.

A show about three sisters that are also witches? I'm pretty sure that's all that appealed to me when I started watching this when I was six years old. I remember watching it every day after school for two hours for about 5 years. I also remember crying when it finished - I'm still hoping for a reunion. 

Desperate Housewives
I think this is the first show that I watched from when it started to when it finished - although I probably shouldn't have been watching it at nine years old... This is one of those shows that there a character everyone can relate to whether you're a shopaholic like Gabby, a hopeless romantic like Susan, a clean freak like Bree or a stressed out mum like Lynette. Every season brings a new mystery, and usually a new creepy character that's hiding a huge secret.

Doctor Who
When I say Doctor Who is one of my top TV shows, please note that I mean only series 1-4. It all goes downhill after that. I just love Doctor Who and I'm still not over Rose leaving. If you ignore everything after David Tennant's last episode, it's a brilliant show.

Red Carpet Style: Blake Lively in Cannes

Gucci Premiere, Giambattista Valli Couture, Chanel Couture and Gucci Premiere.

Is anyone absolutely obsessed with Blake Lively after her appearance at Cannes Film Festival? I've loved her since Gossip Girl but I can't say I noticed just how well dressed she was until the Met Gala this year. And Blake and Ryan Reynolds just make the cutest couple ever. Every single one of her outfits were just so perfect. I'm seriously impressed.

Did you love Blake's Cannes style as much as I did?

The Best of: Cannes Film Festival 2014 - amfAR Cinema Against AIDs Gala

The annual amfAR Gala is one of the highlights of the Cannes Film Festival calendar.

Sharon Stone was the auctioneer for the evening, with prizes including a trip into space with Leonardo DiCaprio, a pair of Karl Lagerfeld's gloves, a Damien Hirst sculpture and an Andy Warhol portrait of Marilyn Monroe.

40 of the the world's most famous models, including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jourdan Dunn and Lara Stone, also took part in a fashion show. They wore a collection of dresses which were auctioned off  together for 3.5 million Euros.

My top four outfits were Jessica Chastian in Givenchy Haute Couture, Jourdan Dunn in Balmain, Karlie Kloss in Chanel Couture and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Emilio Pucci.

Fashion Sketches: Blake Lively and Katy Perry

Valentino reveals the sketch of the bespoke stage costume designed for Katy Perry's Prismatic world tour.

I found these sketches on Vogue earlier this week and I thought they were really interesting. I always love to see sketches of outfits compared to the real thing! I actually think the Valentino sketch is better than the actual stage costume, but that might be due to the angle of the picture - who knows?!

Phoebe X Illustrated

Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the past few years, you’ve probably heard of E4’s popular reality TV show ‘Made In Chelsea’, and by extenstion, you’ve probably heard of Phoebe Lettice-Thompson as well.

She entertained us all on Made In Chelsea, and whether you loved her or hated her, her blazing rows with other female cast members (most notably Lucy Watson) left us all wanting more.

Known for her individual style, the blogger, photographer and fashion assistant for Tatler magazine recently left the show to pursue her career and is now collaborating with quirky fashion brand Illustrated People.

The collaboration is really something different and unique, and not at all what you would expect of someone who’s used to hanging out in SW3. With fun prints and masculine silhouettes, the collection is inspired by Tokyo street style. The bright pink shades also takes inspiration from the creativity and ‘Kawaii’ (meaning cute) playfulness of Harajuku girls.

Phoebe herself spoke about her inspiration for the unusual collection: “…the shapes in this collection came from a problem I was encountering last summer. I loved wearing baggy basketball hip-hop style shorts but it was impossible to find them in anything other than just plain colours. I needed an entire outfit in matching crazy prints – so this is what I did with Illustrated People. I enjoy the contrast of girly pastel prints with masculine shapes.”

With constant teasers on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr, the collection is getting a lot of hype and promises to be something special. Phoebe just recently posted sneak peaks from the campaign shoot, featuring pastel and jewelled Kawaii nails. It’s just the breath of fresh air the fashion industry needs.

Phoebe X Illustrated launches on 26th May at Illustrated People and Topshop and at prices as low as £35, you won’t want to miss out!

The Sunday Post #2: Best Dressed This Week

Beyonce, Daria Strokous and Heather Marks, Freida Pinto and Karlie Kloss.

I found it really difficult to find my best dressed this week - I loved all of Blake Lively's outfits in Cannes but I want to do a separate post about them. The only outfit I really love here is Karlie's!

Moschino Fall 2014

I was reading Company magazine the other day, and when I got to the end there was an article on fast food as an inspiration for clothing, which got me thinking about Jeremy Scott's Moschino collection for A/W 2014. At a first glance, I wasn't a huge fan of the Moschino RTW collection. I thought it was tacky, cheap looking and too bold/in your face. But I quickly got over that the next day when I had a good, in-depth look at the collection and realised that what I thought was awful, was all part of the charm of the collection. Jeremy Scott took inspiration from mass consumerism and popular American culture. And who doesn't love McDonalds'?! I loved the little nods to Chanel throughout the collection and the Happy Meal and Milkshake inspired bags were just too cute. In the end, I was really impressed with the Moschino collection and I wish I could afford it all!

Wednesday Wishlist

Oh to be a poor student with no job and over 4 months of Summer left! These are just a few items I've been wanting lately (and I can't afford any of them). I think the Joni jeans and the shirt from Topshop are so cute and summery! I'm in love with these AA Watermelon Print Shorts after seeing them on Kylie Jenner, but there is no way I'm paying £54. I've tried to find a cheap pair on eBay but I haven't had any luck so far. Black Converse All Star Hi Tops - am I 13 again?! I actually had a pair of these from years ago and went to wear them the other day - only to be heartbroken when I realised I'd thrown them out a few months ago because I hadn't used them in years (X Factor sob story anyone?). I've wanted this Zara skirt for months now, and I actually bought it only to discover it was the wrong size and they don't have my size online. It looks like we're destined to be apart, how upsetting.

What's on your wishlist this week?

Style Crush: Suki Waterhouse

I'm just going to go ahead and say it - I love Suki Waterhouse. Ever since her ELLE UK cover this year I've been a bit obsessed with her (I even squealed when she came on TV at the BAFTA's).  She's my ultimate style crush, along with Olivia Palermo.  I think her style is so effortless and easy to recreate on a cheaper budget as sadly, we can't all afford Burberry. Everything she wears looks amazing, and she makes me want to cut my hair and dye it blonde. She's also dating Bradley Cooper - enough said.

Who is your style crush?

The Best of: Met Ball 2014

Karlie Kloss in Oscar de la Renta, Suki Waterhouse in Burberry, Kate Bosworth in Stella McCartney and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Balmain.

Cara Delevingne in Stella McCartney, Kendall Jenner in Topshop, Elizabeth Olsen in Miu Miu, Beyonce in Givenchy, Emma Stone in Thakoon and Blake Lively in Gucci.

Arizona Muse in Ralph and Russo, Jourdan Dunn and Toni Garrn in Topshop and Kim Kardashian in Lanvin.

Following 2013's 'Punk: Chaos to Couture' exhibition and theme, this year saw the event return to a more glamourous dress code. This year's exhibition is dedicated to couturier Charles James, which resulted in a sea of ballgowns sweeping down the red carpet. Picking my best dressed celebrities was difficult this year, which is why I got a bit carried away! I loved Emma Stone's crop top and skirt combination - it was nice to see her pick something different than the usual floor-length gown that most others picked. I also think Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn and Toni Garrn looked beautiful in their bespoke Topshop gowns, even if they couldn't sit down!

Kate Moss For Topshop

Britain’s favourite supermodel and international fashion icon, Kate Moss, has just recently launched her new Topshop collection last week. Following on from her first collection in 2007, which reportedly earned her £3 million, the collection features four different themes: tailoring noir, Balearic dressing, cocktail hour and pyjama dressing.

The collection is another chance for customers to copy Kate’s effortless beachy style or her statement-making party looks.

Leading up to the collection, Nowness partnered up with Kate Moss For Topshop for a series of short films dedicated to Kate. In the videos, friends and fans alike discuss their favourite stories and moments.

Care Delevingne, who is set to become the new Kate Moss, mentions in her video that the collaboration is ‘perfect’: 'London brand and London girl - THE London girl - coming together. I knew she'd bring something to make it "her". BBC Radio One’s Nick Grimshaw talks about the advice Kate Moss has given him over the years and Vivienne Westwood also gives her thoughts.

Kate has taken inspiration from her own wardrobe and style, much like her 2007 collection.

The new collection has influences from the Seventies and includes fringed suede jackets, jump suits and maxi dresses. It also features embroided smock tops, silk blouses and graphic print kaftans. The weave waistcoat, suede shorts and blue fringed jacket all tone in with the Seventies vibe of the collection.

Kate’s collection also reflects her more laidback style and features baggy pyjama trousers, which used printed satin material.

In terms of evening wear; there are frilled flapper-style dresses and long numbers with thigh slits.

Although most of the collection is sold at affordable prices, one dress is said to be retailing for £600 – this is to reflect the work that went into creating the hand-beaded dress.

The Kate Moss for Topshop collection is sold globally in all Topshop stores and online.
