A Few Fashion Words From The Professionals

A fashion insite



As I have a subscription for Look magazine, I was reading through this week’s and stumbled upon this great article. It was right up my street and I instantly was drawn to it and read every word. Sometimes in Look, the article’s like this are not always that good and often I already know what they are telling you about or they are interviews with the professionals. This is annoying as sometimes you just want a review telling you things that you don’t really know and that’s not an interview. This article was great and I thought I just had to share it with you!





This article was one of my most favourite articles ever in look magazine. It was just so informative for the rest of the summer and autumn/Winter 2013. It it full of great tips to help you with what to buy, not just for your body shape but things that will be a great investment and suggestions of what is a good buy.


The article is set out in 5 separate sections (as you can see in the picture), one from each stylist. There is five separate super stylists that give three tips. They could be a simple tick or a trend that is in or going to be in. Mostly the stylists include something to do with their signature styling point and a picture of a celebrity they have styled.


Katie Greengrass



Her main celebrity client is Alesha Dixon. Combining funky patterns with modern tailoring and structure. She always creates envious looks for Alesha, whether it’s on the red carpet or on Britain’s Got Talent. She is a star stylist and we can definitely lean from her.

“Statement accessories always strengthen a look- you’ll get the most wear for your money out of them and they can change the look of different outfits.”

Lauren Grant




She mainly styles musicians and her main two are miss Ellie Goulding and Miss florence welch. She  likes to make a trade mark look for each of her clients based around their own personal taste, and then adds wow pieces to keep it super fun and modern, including her trade mark peekaboo legs. She knows her clients really well and loves creating mood boards. Maybe we should!


“When you see a piece of clothing you want, don’t buy it unless it goes with at least three things you own!”

Karl Willett




He is one of the most well-known with an amazing array of celebrity clients, such as Ashley Banjo, Jessie J and Paloma Faith. He is self taught and so inspirational (he is one of my new idols) he is just such a great representation to how you can get anything if you try. With a client list this long he is obviously an extremely talented person and his key styling point is including stellar details.


“Treat every day the same and save nothing for special occasions! Mix up your night and day wardrobes and step out each day ready with that extra bit of glam.”


Alexis Knox



She is also so well-known, and she is as stylist and dj, and I want to be a stylist and want to learn to DJ. I love this women already, she is just right up my street. She is all about the new grunge and with clients such as Miley Cyrus, Katy B and Rita Ora, no wonder she is known for this look. I am really loving faux leather and more of an edgy look at the moment so I love her even more.


“I swear by Marks & Spencer’s seamless thongs-they have every single nude underwear option you can imagine. Always buy knickers a size bigger than your usual size so the underear sits on top of your skin and creates a smooth silhouette.”


Angie Smith




Her style is a lot more classic and girly to some of the other stylists, with many clients such as Laura Witmore, Danni Minoque and Lisa Snowdon. She creates looks around classic pieces and creates some actual show stoppers for many of her clients. She seems very up and coming.


“Decide what your best body feature is and work with it- for example MTV’s Laura Whitmore has amazingly long legs, so she looks great in jumpsuits and shorter hemlines.


These are just a few of my favourites from each stylist. They are all such an inspiration for me as I want to become a stylist. They all seem they know there style of styling and what they want the image to be like. So I think I should share a few more of my favourite tips:


  • Dip the soles of our shoes in Coca-cola to stop them slipping- it’s a good one for wearing heels in the winter!

  • Whether it’s high waisted shorts, skirts with a splits or tea dresses, figure out what worjs for your shape and repeat- buy items in different colours and materials.

  • I love using statement jewellery on clients. I’ll often use brooches and earrings as hair accessories by securing them with hair pins to create stand put pieces.

  • Customising your current wardrobe is the best way to freshen up your old clothes- I look to the catwalks, and current and past designer collections, for inspiration.

  • Miley and Katy B love and edgy look, so I’ll amp up basics with fierce boots or stacked jewellery.

  • Every woman should have a pair of nude patent heels to lengthen her legs.

  • When trying on clothes, take a photo and crop out your head- that way you can focus on how the outfit is working with your shape and not be distracted by your hair or face!

I hope you find this interesting and you can go and buy the look magazine for this week if you would like to read it for your self and any of the other articles. I loved it and I hope you do to.


Love you all
