Banks: When you type ‘Banks style’ into Google, not a whole lot comes up. Just because it isn’t there doesn’t mean she’s not someone to champion because her style is awesome! Described on one site as ‘the most plainly obvious pop star you’re ever likely to see’ we reckon her gothic, almost model like qualities make her a big ‘ole one to watch on the style radar this year.

Chloe Howl: Chloe is a powerhouse right now and rightly so.  At only 18, she is taking the music world by storm and has a super cool style to match. The cute crop and eclectic vintage fashion sense means she will be a big one to watch as 2014 unfolds. Look out for her supporting Ellie Goulding later on in the year.

Angel Haze: DJ-ing alongside Lorde, Katy Perry and Ellie Goulding at the Brits last week, there was no doubt that Angel Haze had arrived. The American rapper has a cool, laid back street style we are just loving right now. If anyone can rock a varsity jacket, baseball cap and chunky jewellery with attitude and style, then it’s this lady.

Kendall Jenner: Girl is going to be mega in 2014, you mark our words. After walking for Marc Jacobs at NYFW, she swiftly hopped on a plane and was walking for Giles a few days later, alongside new bestie, Cara Delevingne. Kim’s younger sister is certainly blessed, rumour has it she’s dating a certain Mr Harry Styles too. Some girls have all the luck.

Natalie Westling: When you are as in demand as this lady, you can afford to be picky. Favoured by Marc Jacobs and Hedi Slimane (she walked the Saint Laurent runway as an exclusive thank you very much) she’s also starred in Marc Jacob’s SS14 campaign alongside the one and only Miley Cyrus. We won’t hold that against her though…

Lottie MossWill this be the year she takes over the world?! Probably not… but anyone who sits FROW at Topshop alongside Kendall, Kate and co. means she is a star undoubtedly on the rise. Loved her pastel pink sweat and leather jacket she sported for the FROW as well, displaying her (crazily long) pins proudly on show.

Imogen Poots: Frequently on the best dressed lists, we have a major crush on Imogen’s cool style. Rocking crochet tops, Henry Holland tights and reworking the LBD for the season taking the plunge with no fear at all. Plus you know she stars in ‘The Awkward Moment’ with Zac Efron this year, so she gets huge brownie points for working with the original (and still best) man-banged boy.

Adèle Exarchopoulos: A hot fave for the 2014 Oscars, Adele’s starring role in ‘Blue is the Warmest Colour’ has thrust her firmly into the spotlight. Thanks to all the buzz, we’ve seen her at countless award shows, but she is at her best style-wise off duty. Clashing prints from Prada and Harlequin dresses from Balmain, we can’t wait to see what she rocks for the Academy Awards later this week.

Karen Gillan: Snort not! the former Doctor Who companion is making waves in Hollywood with her starring role in the Marvel film, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, alongside the likes of Bradley Cooper and Glenn Close. Something tells us the newly bald Gillan will be mightily in demand in 2014, plus we’re crushing on her 60s retro style too.

 

The Goss: Miley Cyrus for Marc Jacobs

Miley Cyrus for Marc Jacobs: Well well, look at Miley all grown up and moody for Marc Jacobs! We had a sneaky suspicion she would reinvent herself yet again for 2014 and landing a campaign for the ever lovely Marc is one of the best ways to do it. We’re loving the super stylised vision- a million miles away from the twerking PVC outfit and hair buns. We heart.

Brit nominees announced: Awards season is going a bit nuts at the moment. Fresh from the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday and ahead of the Golden Globes this weekend, we have some goss a little closer to home… the Brit Award nominees have been announced! No surprise that One Direction are tipped for glory with four gong nominations, whilst Jessie J is up for Best British Female Solo Artist against the equally lovely Ellie Goulding. It’s going to be a corker!

David Beckham for H&M Kids: Is there nothing this man can’t do? Seriously, not content with being the most beautiful man in the world (our view, but we’re sure you agree) and modelling in his undies for H&M (swoon) he has now designed a range of kidswear for the high-street brand as well! Who would understand better than Becks on how to dress your children fashionably? Romeo is already a Burberry model and Harper will land a modelling contract any day now, you mark our words!

Nicole Kidman for Jimmy Choo: She was involved in making one of the most expensive adverts of all time for Chanel a few years ago, and now new pics have surfaced of Nicole Kidman appearing in a campaign for Jimmy Choo and well, she’s certainly not afraid of stripping off, let’s say that! Appearing in high waisted knickers and a blazer (sans bra or top, we might add!) the 46-year-old (yes, we can’t believe it either) looks stunning. Oh and the bags and shoes she’s modelling for the brand don’t look half bad either!

And Finally…

blog.image-laura.bubble-251113-ukFashion Ed’s Pick of the Day: We know it’s only the second week in January, but since the sales kicked off in December, the dregs are going to be left if you don’t get your sale shopping sorted soon. So, Shopcade to the rescue! Check out our Final Sales Picks list here and bag yourself some serious bargains before the first new season drops come later this month.

 





The Goss: X Factor Special

Sam Bailey wins the X Factor: Was there ever any doubt that Sam would lift the X Factor trophy this year? Sure, Nicky will have got the mum’s vote (as we predicted) but Sam had the voice- even though she had her thunder stolen by Nicole Scherzinger in the Saturday duet (hilarious, you have to look it up). Other gossip from this week’s X Factor… Ellie Goulding dueted with finalist Luke Friend in tiny velvet hot pants and a jewelled bralet (she looked amazing, may we just say?!) whilst Katy Perry went for an odd angelic get up (we’re talking halo, wings, the lot!) for her performance last night, but was torn to pieces on Twitter for her vocals. We just thought she had lovely shiny hair. Finally major fashion props must be given to Nicole for last night’s showstopper- a custom made gold flecked fishtail dress by Julien Macdonald– stunning. Well, that’s it until next year… how will we solider on? 😉

Miley’s Cheeky Xmas Selfie: Oh Miley, you cheeky little Christmas elf you. Posing with your top pulled up and only two ‘Merry Christmas’ stickers to preserve your modesty. Kids these days, eh?

Kelly Brook to pen autobiography: This is going to be a fab read! The ever gorgeous Kelly Brook has reportedly signed a £1million deal to pen her autobiography. Already tipped to be ‘sensational’ we’re looking forward to hearing all about her string of hunks and her stint on BGT a few years a go. Cant wait.

Andy Murray wins SPOTY: Ha, what a funny acronym. If you aren’t up on your lingo or have been hiding under a rock for the last 24 hours, our Wimbledon champ was crowned Sports Personality of the Year 2013. Cue lots of witty remarks about Andy’s lack of personality and how ironic it was to see him win. Personally we’re loving Murray in the office- guy has been dressed by Anna Wintour for heaven’s sake and is well on his way to matching his gorgeous girlfriend in the style stakes. Speaking of Kim, any sign of that hair deal yet?!

And finally…

blog.image-product-161213-ukFashion Ed’s Pick of the Day: It’s nearly Christmas! So what better way to celebrate than with an amusing Xmas t-shirt, which is all sparkly and pretty? Only £25 from River Island, go on make someone smile when they see this in their stocking 😉

The Goss: Victoria Beckham edits French Vogue

Victoria Beckham | Instagram

Victoria Beckham guest edits French Vogue: Is there nothing this woman can’t do?! Seriously we love VB massive amounts at the moment and here’s why… married to the most beautiful man on the planet, has four impossibly well behaved children, creator of a stunning fashion line which has won every award going, and now, well guest editor and chief of French Vogue. The impossibly talented Mrs B worked with magazine’s editor Emmanuelle Alt to create photo shoots featuring her and David, plus cool interviews. Snap up your copy pronto!

Julien Macdonald confirms for London Fashion Weekend: Julien Macdonald has been confirmed for the designer catwalk show schedule as part of the London Fashion Weekend. The fab designer (he of the naked side dresses worn by Beyoncé, Ellie Goulding and Abbey Clancy) will show his stunner of a collection on Saturday 22nd February. Tickets can be bought now to see the AMAZING SS14 range at both 2pm and 6pm. Better be quick, they won’t be around for long!

Cath Kidston comes to Piccadilly: How exciting! Queen of the kitsch rose print is opening a new store in Piccadilly this week! We know, exciting right?! We’re loving her Christmas jumpers,accessories and hot water bottles this festive season, so we’ll certainly be stocking up on these by the bucket load. The first 180 people in the queue for today’s opening will receive a surprise gift card, so start planning your queuing tactic now!

We Heart snowy fashion: It’s December, which means we are hoping and praying for snow. We mean, what is prettier than a snowy wonderland at Christmas? Nothing! Hence why we are loving some cosy snow fashion. Check out this list full of winter warmers here!

blog.image-bubble-daily.goss.2-031213-ukFashion Ed’s pick of the day: It’s time to turn your attention to beauty this festive season… unpolished nails simply won’t do! We love this Nars limited edition arabesque nail polish from House of Fraser, which is understated enough for you to wear to death over Christmas, but won’t look out of place on your nails come 2nd Jan.

The Goss: Hollywood does Halloween!

on

blog.image-Daily.Goss.Hollywood.does.Halloween-281013-uk

Hollywood Does Halloween: Well they don’t do thing by halves those celebs do they? Hollywood went Halloween mad at the weekend, with a whole host of famous faces going all out to impress. Our fave? Has to be Paris Hilton (remember her?) who took inspiration from Shopcade and rocked THAT Miley twerking teddy costume we featured a few weeks ago. Hair in two high buns and heart shaped glitter glasses, Paris looked fab Other shout outs have to go out to the lovely Fergie AKA Mrs Josh Duhamel who rocked up at a party dressed as a skeleton and a frightening one at that. We heart.






Miss Dynamix get the X Factor boot: In perhaps the most tedious year ever, the best people seem to be leaving early if this week’s voting was anything to go by. Two of the hot faves in the bottom two? Say it ain’t so… Well, er it is because the fab fashion trio Miss Dynamix got the boot after they faced Hannah Barrett in the sing off. Cue lots of voting fix backlash… blah blah, bored now.

Lady Gaga performs on X Factor: The contestants may be causing us a snore fest, but the calibre of celeb performances so far have been brilliant. Ellie Goulding looking half naked in week one, Katy Perry rocking a tiger corset last week and well, last night, all hail the queen of quirk, Lady Gaga as she returned to the X Factor stage to sing her new single. Looking AMAZING in a flesh coloured bra (decorated with sea shells of course!) matching undies and a long blonde wig, her acoustic version of Venus went down a storm. And can we just say please, she is looking hot right now… no skin and bones, just a healthy looking lady. We like. A LOT.

Rihanna’s naked snake love for GQ: Oh good god. Just when you thought she could shock no more, Rihanna has gone and posed topless (nothing new there you might think) with a snake. Yep, a LIVE SNAKE. To celebrate GQ’s 25th anniversary Damien Hirst directed bad girl RiRi in the buff channeling Medusa… complete with snakes coming out of her head….Nice!

The Goss: Ellie Goulding Goes for Gold in Sexy Dress

on

blog.image-elliegoulding.instagram-141013-uk

1. Ellie Goulding does a Miley! Ok well not exactly, but did you see her half naked appearance on the X Factor last night?! Girlfriend was all about flashing the flesh in that gold sparkly number leaving next to nothing to the imagination. Beyoncé first rocked this Julien Macdonald number on her Mrs Carter tour, but we’re not entirely convinced with Ellie’s attempt at sexing up her image. What do you think?

2. Liam from One Direction is still pretty annoyed about getting his boxers (a fetching shade of red no less) pinched in Oz. Price you pay for being one fifth of the world’s biggest boy band Liam, girls will take liberties! Although wearing them was maybe a step too far…

3. Lorna Simpson exits The X Factor in possibly the dullest opening to the live shows ever. Loving the return of Mrs O though! Her snogging Gary Barlow was priceless and Nicole is as fierce as ever when it comes to looking fabulous.

4. Who are Overload? Well, they are the newest boy band in the UK (yeah cos we really need another one of them!) but still, discovered on You Tube promising a meet and greet if they get 100k followers on twitter results in them trending. We girls are a fickle bunch.

5. Queen of the Twerk Miley Cyrus proves that stripping off and riding a giant wrecking ball naked results in a UK number 1 album and single. You’ve got to hand it to the gal, she knows what she’s doing. Trashy image= lots of record sales. Wannabes take note…
