It wasn’t too long ago when news hit the fashion world that Nicole Scherzinger was releasing a collection for popular e-tailer Missguided.co.uk and lucky for us shopaholics, the hotly anticipated pieces hit the online hotspot this month. Contain your excitement ladies as the singing beauty hasn’t disappointed with this luxe infused high street range!
Cobalt Blue Dress, £45.00
The former Pussycat Doll has injected her own sleek and refined style into the clothing including figure hugging dresses and jumpsuits which will enhance your curves for a cool and sexy vibe. Cut-out detailing takes the attire up a notch whilst revealing separates, such as a crop top and pencil skirt, gives the option for some creative inspiration. Not bad for Nicole’s debut fashion line!
Taking certain influences from designers and keeping up with the latest trends, Nicole has expressed her adoration for monochrome and sports luxe with her Missguided designs resulting in sophisticated colour blocking and contemporary silhouettes. The use of cobalt provides a bold edge to some of the garments too and is always a firm spring/summer favourite as it’s the perfect statement hue.
There’s no worry of blowing your monthly shopping allowance either as the price range for the 30-piece collection, which will be available worldwide exclusively at MissGuided.co.uk from 11th March 2014, ranges from £15.00 to £50.00. It’s time to give our wardrobes a high dose of Scherzinger style!

The Burberry Prorsum show is always one of my London Fashion Week highlights as the brand is a true testament to how inspirational British fashion is. February revealed the womenswear Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, The Bloomsbury Girls, showing a wonderful balance of loose silhouettes paired with cinched in waists for beautifully subtle contrasting looks.
The fashion and a-list elite came out in full force to be a part of the unveiling of this remarkable range including Anna Wintour, Bradley Cooper, Harry Styles, Naomie Harris, Mario Testino, Olivia Palermo and Poppy Delevingne. Creative inspiration was taken from the British decorative art of the Bloomsbury set and Charleston, the country home and meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals who formed the group.
A host of top models including Suki Waterhouse,Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Sung Hee Kim and Xiao Wen Ju donned a host of visually stunning designs which featured feminine and abstract prints. A rich autumnal colour palette consisting of elderberry, cameo pink, blackcurrant and bright olive were teamed with English-woven cotton gabardine, leather, suede and shearling for a luxe countryside-esque appeal whilst lace hinted at an underlying romanticism theme.
Topshop Unique is one of the only high street brands to show at London Fashion Week, attracting a crowd of the most style savvy celebs and top industry specialists such as Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Daisy Lowe and Poppy Delevinge who went to see the showing of the label’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. Eager to see what styles and trends lay ahead, this unveiling of the latest range promises an abundance of texture, print and layering.
The mixture of top notch designs and impeccable styling makes Topshop Unique a fashion force to be reckoned with. Injected with an almost tomboy theme the models, including British beauty Jourdan Dunn, rocked numerous high-end looks to rival big named designers.
A parade of blue, mustard, beige, camel and grey ensembles made for a luxury autumn colour palette whilst the clothing was belted at the waist and strategically shrugged off the shoulder for a relaxed feel and a reflection of how women love to dress.
It’s crazy to think London Fashion Week has been and gone! In a flurry of clothing, accessories and makeup, top designers showcased an array of exciting upcoming trends that will have the fashion world buzzing for weeks. Included in the line-up was Venezuelan-born designer Liz Black who, for her Autumn/Winter 2014 presentation in connection with Fashion Scout, collaborated with Face Lace which produces non-fade, non-smudge ready-to-wear makeup designs to create an ultimate beauty statement.
Liz chose to set up her own label to give her the freedom to express her individual creativity. Her designs exude a minimal and elegant aesthetic with the focus being on wearable statement pieces with a timeless appeal, emphasising chic and impeccably tailored structures that complement the feminine silhouette.
For the designer’s AW14 collection, surrealist painter Salvador Dali was the muse so there was a bountiful array of minimalistic outfits with hints of eccentric detailing such as the bold lips featured as the hem of a dress. To compliment these intriguing looks, founder of Face Lace Phyllis Cohen designed beautiful ready-to-flaunt makeup looks which added to the surreal theme of the presentation.
Liz Black said:
“Phyllis and I had an instant connection. When I first mentioned Dali I could see sparkles in her eyes. We couldn’t have understood each other any better.”
