We are super excited to announce the gorgeous Beth Sherburn will be at at our #ShopcadeLFW pop-up event this weekend, meeting and greeting fans on Saturday from 5-6pm!

Taking a break from supporting The Saturdays National Tour, pop’s newest princess is well on her way to becoming a megastar in her own right, thanks to the imminent release of her single, ‘Joker’.

Teaming up with Lil Wayne, the single out on 21st September was filmed in Ibiza and evokes memories of summer fun, and more prominently a tirade against an ex!

The track is super catchy (it stays in your head for days!) and the single features an exclusive Steve Smart remix, which is currently dominating dance floors across Europe.

Speaking about the track Beth said: “This is one of the first songs I wrote. I started it when I was travelling to America to write for some other artists but I didn’t want to give this song away so I finished it when I got back to the UK. I love writing for other people but nothing beats writing a song that you want to perform for your fans.”

Aside from her most famous five pals, Beth has performed with the likes of Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Pixie Lott recently and once she’s finished her tour with The Sats, she’ll be supporting Neon Jungle for a few dates and then jetting off to Dublin, Ibiza and Majorca for shows in between the tour dates. Phew!

We’re super excited to meet Beth in person this weekend and find out all about what she’s been up to! In the meantime, check out her video for ‘Joker’ below…

10 Things You Never Knew About Mel B

2014-110614-melbeeee

We’re feeling just a little bit smug right now. We TOTALLY knew that Mel B was going to be on The X Factor this year after her stellar stand in on the show a few years ago. Plus, who else would they have got to match the ‘fierce’ factor of the dearly departed Nicole Scherzy? Exactly.

So if you’re anything like us, your love affair with Mel will have started in her Spicey days and probably ended with her solo career (harsh but true). However, after proving a hit on the panel last time around, we have definitely warmed up to her again.

Not afraid to speak her mind, we reckon her and Cheryl Cole will get on like a house on fire and clash a fair amount too- basically the perfect love/hate relationship we’ve come to expect from the girls’ side of the judging panel.

Joining Mel and Cheryl is Simon Cowell and yes, unbelievably for no logical reason we can fathom, Louis Walsh is back for a record breaking 11th year as well. Craziness!

Anyway, to celebrate this glorious offish announcement, we’ve done some digging around around the artist formally known as Scary Spice.

Here’s 10 things you never knew about the lady who loves lycra and leopard print…

1. She sang ‘Greatest Love of All’ by Whitney Houston at her Spice Girls audition.

2. She briefly changed her name from Mel B to Mel G when she married her first hubby Jimmy Gulzar.

3. She was given the nickname Scary Spice because she was so loud and lairy.

4. She had her own reality show. Yes really. It was called ‘Mel B: It’s a Scary World’.

5. She’s been a judge on America’s Got Talent and The X Factor Australia.

6. She’s an author. Well kind of. She wrote a memoir called ‘Catch A Fire’ about her life with her fellow Spiceys.

7. She dated British hottie Max Beesley for a brief period in 2002.

8. She has a Japanese tattoo on her stomach which means “spirit, heart, and mind”

9. She worked with Missy Elliott at the height of her Spice Girls fame, releasing ‘I Want You Back’ which hit Number 1 in the UK.

10. She came second on the American version of Strictly Come Dancing, ‘Dancing With The Stars’ in 2007 losing out to Hélio Castroneves the Brazilian racing car driver.

We’re officially on Cannes Style Watch right now as the festival continues to showcase some of the best dressed women on the planet, and we’re only on day five!

Cannes is always a feast for the eyes fashion wise, but this year it really has taken on a whole new level of glamour. Want to see who has made out hot list? Then read on below and check out our fave looks from Cannes past and present right here!

Blake Lively: Fresh from nailing it at the Met Gala earlier this month, Blake is on fire right now as the hottest gal in Cannes. It helps she has the likes of Gucci and Chanel dressing her, but what we reckon is really doing it for her is that handsome bit of man candy she is carrying around everywhere right now, AKA Mr Ryan Reynolds. HOT.

Kendall Jenner: Kendall looked stunning, even if she did play it a little safe at the opening ceremony of Cannes a few days ago in a pretty little Chanel monochrome number. Critics weren’t overjoyed with her selection, but we reckon she looked dazzling and super sophisticated for her age.

Cheryl Cole: Our Chezza gets a mention purely for the fact she was falling out of a nightclub, struggling to keep her food and drink down and STILL managed to look as stunning as ever in off-duty leather. In Cannes doing her beauty duty as a L’Oreal ambassador, we’re seriously counting down the days until she is back on our X Factor screens in the summer… can you imagine the dresses?! Ahh #excited

Jennifer Lawrence: Now J-Law can rock a frock like the best of them, but she’s only 23 and sometimes it’s nice to see her looking her age in a pretty white ensemble. Granted, it’s Dior but still! She looks gorgeous with her newly grown out pixie crop in soft waves here as she attends a photo call for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Love her look? Shop it here!

Want to turn heads this season? Then unleash your inner celeb and check out our best selection of party and cocktail dresses right here!

The Goss: Isabel Marant for H&M… The Countdown Begins!

Isabel Marant for H&M: We have literally waited all our fashion lives for this moment. Isabel Marant for H&M launches in the UK this week, yes you heard us, THIS WEEK! In possibly the most highly anticipated high street/designer collaboration ever, the fashion pack have been counting down the days since it was announced earlier this year. Shopcade will be decamping from our HQ home in Notting Hill and queuing at dawn to cover the fashion event of the year, so stay tuned for our live updates straight from the heart of the action!

Adele turns down L’Oreal deal: So apparently the lovely Adele was offered a deal with L’Oreal which would have seen her replace the equally lovely Cheryl Cole but- and here’s the kicker- she turned it down! The move has left the beauty giant reportedly ‘gobsmacked’ at her turning down such a huge amount (we’re talking £12m here!) according to People magazine, who quoted the source. We’re pretty gutted it didn’t work out, Adele is a stunner!

Tamera Foster looks hot in sequinned jumpsuit: Told you Tamera was the one to watch in the fashion stakes! Gal looked gorgeous in a sequinned French Connection jumpsuit for Saturday’s live show. Available from ASOS for £180 it’s an investment piece make no mistake, but come on, when you can’t treat yourself at crimbo, when can you , eh?!

And finally…

All Worship… ‘The Bear and the Hare’: They’ve only gone and done it again those clever folks at John Lewis. Having run out of cute kids and snowmen, they’ve turned to animation for this year’s Christmas offering and come up with the soon-to-be-classic bear and hare tale. You know, the one where they bear and hare are best buds in the forest and because the bear hibernates each year he misses Christmas (we know, heart breaking right?!). So clever hare buys him an alarm clock (John Lewis of course) so he can wake up and enjoy the festive season. (Hurray!) All this action set to the backing vocals of Lily Allen and her comeback cover of Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know. You may sense sarcasm, but we totes weeped… honest.

The Goss: Nicole Scherzinger’s High Street Style

Nicole Scherzinger is a cutie in cut-out: Who knew Nicole was such a fan of Shopcade?! No sooner do we post about cut-out being hot to trot, does the gorgeous lady herself step out in a black cut-out number to do some after-hours partying post X Factor. Yours for the bargain price of £16, shop the exact same dress from New Look here and check out this cute pic Nicholas McDonald posted of himself and the lady in question.

Cheryl Cole back in the hot seat? Hold the phone… is Cheryl Cole about to make a dramatic return to the UK X Factor next year? If rumours are to be believed not only is Simon Cowell on his way back to save the show, but he has also persuaded Cheryl to return. We thought hell would have frozen over before Chezza agreed to come back, but it seems two years and a lot of thawing has gone on for her to forgive Cowell over the US X Factor debacle. We’re just uber excited for Cheryl’s outfits if this turns out to be true!

Little Mix Storm The X Factor: We’ve got a lot of love for those Little Mix minxes and it seems so do the rest of the UK after the girls returned to the X Factor stage last night to belt out new hit, ‘Move’. Looking gorgeous in black bralets, black jeans and Dr Martens, we’re seriously crushing on their new style.

And finally….

blog.image-face.thor-041113-ukThor, more like phwoarrrr! Ladies, any excuse to post a picture of the beautiful Chris Hemsworth and we’ll take it. Starring in Thor Dark World, which opened last weekend to rave reviews, here he is in all his Thor-like glory…. You’re welcome.
