Vogue Festival London – Best of Street Style (Part 1)

Coats/ Denim/ Dresses/ Wardrobe

Russian girl Vogue Festiva Valentino

Last Saturday, I spent a fun-filled day at Vogue Festival on London’s Southbank, with my lovely  colleagues Berengere and Gledis. We went to see Alexa Chung and Lucinda Chambers speak on “Personal Style – Do you have it?” As it often goes with these type of events, the actual, one hour long talk, was not the highlight of the day.  The real fun was to meet and photograph like minded fashionistas, to be inspired by different, creative styles and to generally indulge in ‘girly nonsense’ (as Mr Romantique would call it).

I’m excited to share with you my Best of Street Style – gorgeous bloggers competed for the photographers attention and the girls were more than happy to pose.

Above and below: Head to toe in Valentino, the King of Glamour. Russian blogger Sofia Serdiukova  impressed with a black lace dress (including sheer panels) and a gold brocade coat. The string of pearls and long, curly hair added even more femininity to the already drop dead gorgeous outfit.

She perfectly epitomises Valentino’s mantra on women’s style:   “A woman must decide whether she wants to look ok or whether she wants to look too much, I prefer it when a woman wears an enormous skirt, a beautiful blouse with simple shoes, rather than a dress that that is too much and not elegant. A dress has to live, it can’t be wooden.”

The must have accessory of the day was a statement lip: Cherry red, shocking pink or classic Hollywood, lips were bold. It illustrated beautifully how you can transform and add to an outfit with eye catching lips.

Boyish, relaxed sexyness in torn denim, a hat, black heels and the ever pesent statement lip! Graphic, big prints were popular too.

Karlie Kloss at Vogue Festival in London

Karlie Kloss Vogue Festival

What a day it’s been! London was looking its best:  Under blue skies and warm temperatures, the Vogue Fashion Festival commenced at London’s Southbank.  At the festival, I attended the talk on Personal Style led by Alexa Chung  (check back for the story on R&R soon). More fun than attending the talk was to mingle with fashionistas and fellow bloggers who strutted their stuff at the Thames river bank. Later in the afternoon, model Karlie Kloss arrived for a photo session amongst the festival goers. Her rather eye catching outfit consisted of a high-waisted, purple metallic leather pencil skirt, purple beaded varsity jacket adorned with lipsticks, kooky cute pink pom-pom shoes and a polka dotted rucksack, all from House of Holland, RTW Fall 2014! Fashion at it’s best, when it’s all about fun.  Karlie will speak at the Festival about what it’s like to be a model tomorrow.

Karlie looked cute, I loved her wild hairstyle. She seemed very open and happy to talk and pose with curious bystanders.

Vogue’s High Street Guide

Romantique

Twice a year, British Vogue publishes a 38 page supplement on affordable fashion called ” More Dash than Cash”. The summer issue comes out in May and this year, Vogue’s fashion editors picked the High Street brands which translated the catwalk ready to wear trends best.

This year, the “More Dash than Cash” issue focuses on these trends:

  • Tribal Tech as seen at Burberry
  • Pastel colours – everything from soft pink to primrose yellow
  • Broderie Anglaise – as seen at Louis Vuitton 

H&M collaborated with Vogue  on the issue. One of my favourite H&M pieces is the melon coloured lace pencil skirt and the emboroidered blouse with Peter Pan collar.
