Spring Summer 2014 shows radiated this year with bright tangerines and coral oranges from apparel, accessories to nails and lips. When it comes to orange I believe
All is right, when you go bright.
This colour is wearable. Don’t be afraid to embrace the colour this Summer. But if orange is a bit too bright for you why not add that sunny colour into your lips and nails? Bright tangerine nails and coral lips seen from DSquared to Rag & Bone show. For full colour high pigment, MAC lipsticks never disapoint and their star shade for this trend is the the beautiful Morange. Maybelline’s Electric Orange from Maybeline is also pretty. For nails OPI’s “A Roll in the Hauge” is a vivid orange that will brighten up any outfit. Here’s a snippet of some of the shows.

Fringe is a great detail to an outfit this season. Black fringe, beaded or sparkling tassels adds that old glamour for evening dresses, like the Kate Moss for topshop dress I am loving. Go for bright colours this Summer for a fun and flirty look. Mix some fringe with aztec prints, in kimonos, long skirts and fringin’ accessories for that tribal safari look. Here are my fringe favourites right now! .
1. Steve Madden Fringe Necklace
2. Kate Moss for Top Shop Fringe Dress
3. House of Harlow 1960 Aegan Treasure Earrings
4. Tamara Mellon Suede Midi Skirt
5. Gucci Fringe Bag
6. Paula Cademartori Fringe Handbag
7. River Island Fringe Kimono
8. Miss Selfridge Pink Swimsuit
9. Stella McCartney Cutout Dress
Pink was a favoured colour on the red carpet at the Met Gala whilst this year’s theme returned to formality celebrating American Couturier Charles James.
And it was mainly the blondes that looked pretty in pink. Blake Lively looked flawless and every bit the old Hollywood glamour in a soft blush pink Gucci gown with a cape train. Whilst Emma Stone wore a cropped ensemble in two tones of pink which was a modern take (the cropped top)
with the open split skirt.

Rome is one of my favorite cities, always charming with such beautiful architecture and history. There is so much to see and even on my 3rd trip to this city, the place still captivates me with its beauty and charm as if I’d never visited before. I managed to cover the Vatican, Colosseum, Pantheon, Altare Della Patria and Trevi Fountain in a day – it was exhausting! An absolute must see is the church Santa Maria in Aracoeli at the Vittoriano (Altare della Patria) the interior inside is stunning with artworks on the ceilings and beautiful chandeliers, monuments and statues all around the walls.

The Golden Globes saw some beautiful color block gowns which seemed to be a trend on the red carpet at this year. I particularly like Aubrey Plaza’s purple and pink Dress from Oscar De La Renta and Taylor Swift looked stunning in a full length black and pink Carolina Herrera gown. Here’s a look at some of them.
