dulux white fashion
Last week Dulux took over a rather stunning London townhouse and created an immersive ‘Ultra White experience’ within it to celebrate their latest product, a tougher and brighter white paint (compared to standard Dulux white emulsions) called Ultra White.

Naturally, it called for a photo shoot. Joining fellow bloggers from The Apartment collective, we mixed some of our favourite white pieces with a curated collection of Spring/Summer & Autumn/Winter 2013’s best ultra white garments and set off around Dulux’s apartment to get generally snap happy.

…I should note that no stuffed dogs were harmed in the making of this photo shoot.

What I Wore:
Coat – Alberta Ferretti
Shoes – Russell & Bromley
Dress – Boden

Leighton Meester On The Set Of 'Gossip Girl'
As the latest season of Gossip Girl continues with filming, I am looking forward to seeing more and more of Blair Waldorf‘s stylishly prim ensembles before they hit the small screen. THe latest look (seen above) was comprised of a nude Moschino ruffle pearl tweed jacket, an Alberta Ferretti embellished neck-tie chiffon dress, Roger Vivier platform court heels, and the all-important Marc Jacobs quilted handbag.

Leighton Meester Bangs

My favourite look of the week, however, comes from Leighton Meester when she attended the “HTC Serves Up NYC” product launch event at the Highline Stages in New York City.

Not only did Leighton wear the very first red carpet appearance of Marios Schwab‘s Resort 2012 collection (the long-sleeved black dress with the aquatic graphic-print skirt), but she also wore the Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 tribal heels that showed up on the runway at London Fashion Week just this past Monday! Oh, closet lust, you are my inevitable downfall.

Zooey Deschanel Idiot Brother
Over the past two days, two of my favourite celebrity ladies have really impressed me on the fashion front.

First, we have Zooey Deschanel – the actress commonly confused for Katy Perry who gained major fame in Elf, 500 Days of Summer, and will soon appear in “New Girl” on Fox). Though she was stuck in a must-wear-black-tights uniform for years, she has recently started becoming a little more adventurous with her fashion choices.

At yesterday’s LA premiere for “Our Idiot Brother” (which took place at the ArcLight Cinemas), Zooey wore a monochrome Moschino dress from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Though the look is two-toned from top to bottom – where she sports a black pair of YSL Trib Toos – the ruffled detail at the waist and her oversized, detachable collar keeps it very Zooey. With a wavy, side-swept bun and super-long false lashes (only on her lower lash line), she is the farthest thing from Plain Jane.

Kristen Bell Alberta Ferretti
Then we have the utterly gorgeous Kristen Bell on her way to a private ‘swag bag’ party which took place at an undisclosed residence in Brentwood, California on Sunday. The beautiful blonde paired together two separate Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2011 pieces that I will now be seeing in my fashion dreams. They happen nightly.

The separates were a taupe, crocheted long-sleeve top paired with a grass-green skirt which was also covered in an apricot print. Accessories-wise we have the crocodile Jimmy Choo “Rhea” tote, orange stiletto-heeled pumps and gold-trimmed sunglasses. Nothing ‘matches’ but every item compliments the next. My kind of style.

Blake Lively Glamour
…of herself, according to Lively’s interview in the July issue of Glamour US with Florence Welch. On the cover of the monthly, Blake wears a Michael Kors Fall/Winter 2011 look – the next best thing to nude? Part of the the interview and the full photo spread – featuring my dream wardrobe – is below!
