Celeb Style: Jennifer Lawrence

After Jennifer Lawrence's big win at the 85th Academy Awards for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, we thought we'd centre this weeks Celebrity Style blog post around her.

Wearing a beautiful gown from Dior Couture to the awards ceremony we look back at some other wonderful dresses the star has worn. We particularly love her two outfits for the Hunger Games premier, first this stunning red mini dress (photo 1) and secondly a shimmering gold foil maxi number! We don't think many people could pull off such a metallic ensemble but she does so with ease.
Happy to flash a bit of leg too, Jennifer looks bronzed and beautiful in a coral mini pictured above.

We wonder if ex boyfriend Nicholas Hoult is currently kicking himself and whether their flame will be relit on the set of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past film.

Do you like Jennifer Lawrence? Have you watched Silver Linings Playbook?

Celeb Style: Fearne Cotton

Congratulations to Fearne Cotton and Jesse Wood on the birth of their baby boy Rex Rayne Wood this morning!

Fearne kept true to her stylish routes throughout her pregnancy, sporting some rather lovely maternity looks. She's certainly going to be one very stylish mama!!

We have always been a fan of Fearne's style in the etailPR office, and it's been lovely to see her develop her wardrobe over the last 9 months. She's managed to keep her eclectic mix of high street, vintage and designer, whilst looking radiant throughout the year.

We particularly think she looks beautiful on the red carpet in this sweet, floral, dip dye dress and clashing leopard print court shoes. We only hope we look just as good when we have children!

What do you think of Fearne's style? Do you like her range for Very?

Guest post: Vintage Style Me

This week we wanted to bring you something a little different on our blog by having someone within the blogosphere and design industry talk about their passion!

Someone dear to our hearts and based locally to our office in Cheltenham is Rhiannon Alexander, the founder of Vintage Style Me. Who better to feature on our blog first...

"My love of vintage started when I was about 14, when my mum would tell me stories of how she dresses as a teenager during the 70's. Together we would then make or source similar items which fuelled my love of this era, and also the thrill of thrifting began! Fast forward about 9 years and my vintage collection was huge!! Some of it I never wore, but it was so beautiful I just enjoyed having it.

After graduating uni I decided to open up a small online vintage store, as it was the only thing I had ever dreamed of doing. From there Vintage Style Me grew. For some reason I was completely unaware of how huge blogging was, and caught on really late. Vikki from The Magpie Girl was the first blog I ever read and from then on found more and more blogs I loved. Through chatting to Vikki I realised how friendly and fun bloggers were and started to get chatting over twitter about fashion. I definitely have bloggers to thank for the rapid growth of VSM, as they really are such a supportive bunch - and their love of shopping certainly helps!

Bloggers are also an excellent source of inspiration - Dunya from Dearest Deer inspired me for our best selling TFC Carrousel horse t-shirt, and the beautiful pictures from Kim of Sweet Monday and Paige of Paige Joanna in our cat skirt have shown the cat craze is going no-where.

I actually started my business before my blog, but they work so well together as you feel part of a wonderful community where bloggers and businesses can bounce off each other creatively."

Have you heard of VSM? Or have you bought from VSM?

We'd love to hear your feedback on this style of post :) 
If you have something worth sharing and would like to be a guest blogger for us please email with a couple of sentences of what you'd like to talk about.

Forever Unique

Forever Unique have launched their colourful new Selfish SS13 collection. Featuring vibrant, going out styles with a contemporary twist, the collection combines a sports-luxe influence with an edge!

We ordered this beautiful angular Linus dress, on sale now for £70, and were over the moon with Forever Unique's fantastic packaging. Ordered by 3pm on Wednesday afternoon and delivered at 9.30am Thursday morning, their next day delivery was even faster than expected. The dress, complete with hanger and polythene bag, came perfectly folded in Forever Unique branded tissue paper, in a magnetic fastened box.

Well presented packaging adds so much more to a customer purchase, and therefore customer service. Boxes such as this hard wearing black glossy Forever Unique one can make great storage containers afterwards.

Do you care about the packaging when ordering items online? Have you had any really great experiences with delivery or any terrible ones?

We'd love to know your thoughts!

Celeb Style: Destiny's Child

Ok so this week we've gone a little Destiny's Child crazy in the office! With their spectacular come back performance at the Super Bowl we look back at some of their good, bad and very bad outfit choices!

Tina Knowles has styled the girls throughout their career together and sometimes we've had to question  her ensembles. But as the band matured so did the outfits, and we love the cream goddess type dresses in the center photo.

Are you a fan of Destiny's Child?  Who were your favourite band growing up?

Destiny's Child Super Bowl performance!

How many of you watched the Super Bowl on Sunday night? Or at least caught Beyonce's half time performance? Some of us stayed up to watch the whole event and others of us caught her performance online yesterday, and what a performance it was!

We're huge Destiny's Child fans here in the office and were thrilled to see Kelly and Michelle join Beyonce on stage!

Beyonce did a great job to squash all of those lip syncing jibes, with an outstanding live performance. We would love to know where she gets the energy from for amazing dance routines at the age of 31, and after having a child!

We hear she's now set to do go on stage Worldwide with a tour this Spring/Summer, will you be hoping to get tickets?

Les Misérables

The much-awaited musical production, Les Mis, finally came to the cinemas in the UK! The film is set in France in 1815 and is filled with heart wrenching moments.

Anne Hathaway plays the part of Fantine, a woman who tries anything to send money to her illegitimate daughter. She looks stunning as her character, even when she is forced to chop off her beautiful long hair. Amanda Seyfried plays the part of Fantine's grown up daughter, Cosette, and looks equally as stunning as Anne throughout the film! We could sit here for hours and list great moments, every actor and actress pulls their weight and contributes to an all round amazing film.

If you're looking for a dramatic film that pulls on the heart strings, then this is the film for you. Half the cinema were in floods of tears when we went to see this!

Have you seen Les Mis - what did you think? How did you think it compares to the stage show?
