Don a Pink Spaghetti Strap Top Like Luisa Zissman

Tone up those bingo wings ladies because this summer - as seen on the catwalks from Topshop Unique to Christopher Kane, the spaghetti strap is coming out to play with a vengeance.
Luisa Zissman, however, hasn't got anything to worry
about in the bingo wing department and certainly has no qualms when it comes to whipping off her jacket to reveal the neon pink spaghetti strap top she's wearing underneath.
Chilly? Not a bit of it. She's got a matching bandana to keep her warm (very Miu Miu we must say!)
Come rain or shine, though, bright pink is guaranteed to brighten up any outfit and put a smile on everyone's face. However, if neon feels a bit day-glo of a morning, choose a shade more suited to your skin tone.
Rose, coral, fuschia - so many hues so little time. Fashion Finder is coming over all ASOS coral today and while we realise the Missguided number is indeed a tank top and and not a strappy number, we thought it captured the spirit of Luisa's scarf rather well. N'est-ce pas?

Emulate Kim Classic Hollywood Glamour

You could be forgiven for thinking that Kim Kardashian knew she was getting engaged, as she rocked up at the AT&T baseball park in San Francisco sporting this stunning blue and white Valentino dress.
Suitable for any red carpet occasion, this classic dress features a stand out Delft ceramic pattern, long sleeves and nipped in waist, for maximum impact. Teamed with sky high heels and a cocoon overcoat, it is the perfect evening look.

What's more, with the likes of Anne Hathaway, Anna Wintour and Emma Watson all pledging their allegiance to Valentino's stunning AW13 collection, now is the ideal time to emulate the look.

Their Delft intarsia-knit dress is to die for but, sadly, coming in at well over £2000, any dress from this coveted collection is quite the style investment.So we've hand-picked our favourite look-a-likes from the high street for your shopping pleasure. Pair Asos's beautiful scarf-print mini dress with cute ankle boots and a thick coat for a winter look that will last you right through to spring.

Look Lovely in Lace Like Jessica Alba

The beautiful people were all at the H&M show in Paris last night with Miranda Kerr and Jessica Alba leading the pack.
And they were all wearing pieces from the high street store's forthcoming spring collection. It's not available to buy yet but will be there in March so get ready to queue up early...
While Miranda Kerr wore a black brocade dress more suited to a smart evening event, Jessica looked girlish and pretty in this more every day look.
Lace dresses were a major trend for SS13 and AW13 thanks to designers like Dolce & Gabbana but instead of a fitted pencil style, Jessica's frock is a cute A-line swing style with demure high neck. Quite sixties with a touch of hippy.
If you can't wait until the new H&M collection arrives in a store near you, why not shop the edit below? TOWIE alumni Lydia Bright has a fabulous version at Asos or splash a bit of cash on Needle & Thread at Net-a-Porter.

Essie's Starry 'Lemmings'

Rare, discontinued nail polishes are commanding prices up to ten times their original value on eBay.
Colors such as Essie’s Starry Starry Night and Clarins’s 230 are selling for up to $250 on the auction site, to nail polish-obsessives who call themselves lemmings.
Danielle Frazier, a 28-year-old artist from Brooklyn told The New York Times that the appeal in searching for old polish is its ‘treasure-hunt feeling. It’s got a lottery kind of effect.’

A bottle of Starry Starry Night (known as SSN to lemming bloggers) recently sold on eBay for $250, according to the paper.

Currently, it does not appear that more bottles of the shade are available through the online auction site.
The polish - navy with flecks of silver glitter - holds such meaning among lemmings that pendants and earrings painted with the sparkly varnish are now being sold on Etsy.
The blogger behind Vintage Seams & Things, who received a bottle as a gift, believes Starry Starry Night is worth every penny. She wrote: ‘This polish is absolutely worth the hype. The sparkle in person is one that is remarkable.’
The aforementioned blogger writes of the shade: ‘This polish is absolutely worth the hype. The sparkle in person is one that is remarkable.’

While slightly less rare, Clarins’s 230 polish - an irridescent formula that changes from burgundy to green to gold to orange in the light – is still in high-demand, despite having been discontinued in 2008.
The shade is so beloved that lemmings have nicknamed it ‘Unicorn Pee’ or ‘UP’ for short.
Bottles that have never been opened are currently selling on eBay for up to $157 dollars, while those that have been lightly used are selling for $99.

Pump Up - Boosting Plunge Bra

To be fair, Abbey Clancy is probably one of those lucky few who doesn't actually need a plunge bra but she sure looks great in those adverts for Michelle Mone's reissue of her OMG Ultimo plunge bra.
Yip, baby's come back with an added racer-back clip feature and is also 50% lighter
'with improved shape and straps to give optimum boost from every angle.' That last bit is especially important when you're a celebrity in danger of being caught out by those pesky paps when you least expect it.
However, in a world of three way mirrors and dresses with exotic rear detailing demanding closer inspection, now we all want to look good from every angle possible.
The M&S version on the carousel comes highly recommended but we also like Vero Moda and Elle Macpherson's creations due to their prettiness which you can show off in a strappy top or underneath a white Tee

Get Spotted in a Polk - Dot Dress

We’re pretty sure this is the first Fashion Finder we’ve done on Vogue McFadden, but if she continues to wear looks like this one it certainly won’t be the first! We love the model,
DJ and presenter's girly polka-dot dress, especially how she gave it a cool edge with eye-catching metallic accessories. This girl is definitely one to watch in the style stakes!
Vogue’s dress is from a boutique called The Ivory Closet in Limerick in the West of Ireland – it’s good to see the Irish Mrs McFadden wearing a dress from her home country!

The boutique allows you to borrow dresses on a three nightly basis – if you’re attending an event in Ireland give them a call and you can wear Vogue’s exact dress, or one of their other fab frocks.
Otherwise, we’ve picked four polka-dot dresses for our edit below. The Outnet has an affordable Valentino number which has a sheer polka dot feature like Vogue's, and Boohoo’s offering is a steal at only £24.99 – we’re going dotty for it!

Come Out Smelling Like Roses in A Floral Print Top

Sam Bailey is certainly glowing more and more by the day! She looked beautiful today in a floral print shirt, black skinnies and a biker jacket, which she paired with sky high heels. Be careful in those shoes, Sam!

A floral shirt is a must-have for your wardrobe this summer. The trend was started on the runway by Givenchy’s fall 2013 collection, which featured a pretty pink rose print set to a black background. Since then, the pattern has since been seen in different shapes and sizes on Jordan Dunn and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, to name a few.
Below, we’ve picked for black floral beauties like Sam’s that will add a feminine touch to any look. We’ve included a Givenchy number if you want to go designer, or for cheaper options ASOS and Oasis come up trumps. Wear with black skinnies like Sam or a leather skirt for an off-model duty vibe and life will surely feel like a bed of roses!

Kyle Jenner Sporty Ensemble

Make like Myleene in a lipstick print dress from Littlewoods

We wonder whether Myleene Klass wore this retro-inspired dress for the actual show or just when leaving the studios? After all, sitting behind the Loose Women desk wouldn't showcase that cutesy lipstick, lips and hand mirror print on the skirt quite so perfectly!
Myleene's luscious lips look is of course, from her own line for Littlewoods and she is definitely her own best model. When paired with similarly retro cat eye shades and a classic Chanel quilted tote, she looks enviably perfect.

Together, the pencil shape of this dress, along with the turquoise hue and pretty print make for a winning formula and just to top it all off, Myleene's dress will only set you back £55. Click (right) now and shop her collection to your heart's content.
Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Alice + Olivia and Markus Lupfer are leading the way when it comes to the lips trend, but luckily for us, the high street is already all over it too. Head to Asos and River Island to pucker up and no one need know your dress isn't designer. Don't worry, our lips are sealed...

Create curves in Nigella's Diva Catwalk pencil dress

We've always been Team Nigella at Fashion Finder so we're glad to see her looking so gorgeous on Michael McIntyre's show.
Nigella Lawson is a good example of a beautiful woman of a certain age who still looks sexy. And she sure knows how to dress those famous curves. This dress is from one of her go-to brands, Diva Catwalk and it flatters her figure perfectly.

Diva is well known for its curve enhancing pencil dresses and this one even has a peplum detail to really nip in the waist and accentuate the hips. Plus, the open folded collar makes the most of Nigella's decolletage too.
Click the link (right) to buy this tartan treat now. It'll look great with opaque tights until the weather warms up but then go bare legged and don't forget the heels! Or try one of the other checked dresses we've found below. They'll give you Nigella's killer curves but won't cost the earth.

Dare to bare in a lace dress like Kim's

So Kim Kardashian finally did it. She landed herself a Vogue US cover.
Opinion is divided as to whether the reality television star is worthy of such a prestigious accolade but either way she's got Anna Wintour's seal of approval. And it was proved again last night as they headed out to dinner together with Kanye West.

Bit of a stressful dressing scenario for our Kim. What on earth do you wear to dinner with the terrifying Ms Wintour? Well in this instance Kim decided that flashing her underwear was the only way to go. She wore this Rachel Roy, large weave lace dress over some substantial pants and a bralet adding her favourite leather Balmain blazer for extra coverage.
We're not sure this would have been our first choice but she's working it in that Kim Kardashian inimitable way and she's definitely got a figure worth flashing. If you fancy copying this lacy look then take a stroll down the virtual high street and check out the similar styles we've found below. AX Paris has a bargain but we love Arrogant Cat's lace lovely at Asos.

Swap your LBD for a LBJ - a Little Black Jumpsuit

Oh Lauren, Lauren, Lauren! This ill-fitting jumpsuit from The Boutique (right) may not be doing Lauren's curvy figure any favours BUT we do see sartorial potential. While a little black dress is always going to be a fashion no-brainer its edgier younger sibling, the jumpsuit, is the one that prowls the party circuit looking for the real fun.

Chic, timeless and glamorous,a black jumpsuit promises to solve all your lazy-girl wardrobe woes. Far easier to wear than separates but yet still an interesting and fashion-forward sartorial choice, it's the best of both worlds so if you want to add one to your capsule closet today then why not shop our pick of must-have styles below?


MissGuided, ASOS and Topshop have all tapped into the hot trend perfectly with these great day-to-night pieces. The only rule we keep when wearing a jumpsuit is to always team with a killer high heel.

TOWIE's Ferne McCann and Louise Thompson narrowly avoid fashion clash with similar outfits at restaurant launch

hey are frequently at the same parties, so it was only a matter of time before Ferne McCann and Louise Thompson would share a matching look.
And that's exactly what happened when they attended the launch of new London restaurant Pacata in Covent Garden on Friday.
The two women, who are known for their appearances on The Only Way Is Essex, both wore white and pink ensembles for the opening of the new venue, which is operated by Chelsea FC's sponsor Singha.

Happy to be part of the celebrations,she looked radiant with a flash of pink lipstick.

Two integral parts of this hilarious ensemble were new age Mancunian nurse Daphne Moon and Frasier's sharp-talking, sexy sidekick Roz Doyle.
Many might remember characters Daphne and Roz dressing rather dowdily(but then it was the early '90s) however, it's a different story for the actresses today.

Package-enhancing Pants That Promise to Make his Manhood Look Three Times Bigger Launch

Dating is tough. In the harsh world of modern dating, men are searching for something to give them that edge.
Anne Summers believes it has created a secret weapon: the ‘Triple Boost’, a new pair of package-enhancing pants.
In the same way some women artificially enhance their assets by wearing push-up bras, it appears men have been pining for a way (besides a pair of socks!) to boost their package.

Following the incredible success of the ‘Triple Boost’ bra, Ann Summers created the ‘Triple Bulge’ for men – the first pair of briefs that promise to boost bulge and enhance his attributes.

A recent survey by the brand revealed nearly half (47 per cent) of the men 1,000 men polled admitted to feeling insecure about their pouch size and nearly as many (40 per cent) said they would consider penis enlargement surgery if it was available, despite the health risks and hefty price tag.
Women looking for the ultimate cleavage bought 790 per cent more bras than predicted officially crowning the Triple Boost Ann Summer’s best-selling bra ever
Ann Summers were inundated with requests from men following the launch of the Triple Boost, claiming they felt left out and that they wanted a chance to boost their bulge the same way women do their cleavage.

Kim Kardashian too fat for Harper's Bazaar

Kim Kardashian may be on the cover of this month’s Vogue, but she was originally slated to star on the February cover of Harper’s Bazaar instead, it has been revealed.
According to WWD, Bazaar’s editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey had planned to feature Ms Kardashian in a close-up ‘beauty’ shot on the cover because the then-pregnant reality star appeared ‘overweight’.
Ms Kardashian was apparently unhappy with this treatment, as well as Bazaar’s idea to have the controversial photographer Terry Richardson produce the shoot.
Vogue prevails: After signing up to shoot with Harper's Bazaar, Kim Kardashian reportedly dropped the magazine for Vogue intead

A source tells the paper that Ms Kardashian had ‘concerns’ over Mr Richardson’s involvement in the shoot, and had preferred to collaborate with a new photographer as Mr Richardson had already shot Kardashian Kollection Sears line for fall.
Close to the time of Ms Kardashian’s Bazaar shoot, Vogue editor Anna Wintour had reportedly ‘warmed up’ to the idea of placing her on the magazine’s cover, with a shoot photographed by Anne Leibovitz.

Ms Kardashian then cancelled on Bazaar, also apparently citing the fact that ‘Glenda doesn’t go to the shoots,’ as a reason, according to a source.
At Vogue, Ms Kardashian was promised that respected editor Grace Coddington would be on-set.
When asked to comment on the matter, Bazaar's special projects editor Laura Brown said: 'Kim and Kanye are the greatest example of conscious coupling. We wish them all the best.'
But Ms Bailey and Ms Wintour were not the only top editors pining for Ms Kardashian’s face on their covers.

Chloe Green mixes too many trends in bizarre leather dungarees and a plaid crop top as she launches new shoe collection

Chloe Green was certainly dressing to impress as she headed out to the launch party of her latest foray into the style world.
But the Arcadia heiress suffered something of a sartorial fail by becoming a fashion victim as she unveiled her latest Chloe Jade Green collection at the flagship Topshop Oxford Street store on Friday evening.
Ensuring all eyes were on her, the 23-year-old designer mixed one too many trends in a pair of bizarre black leather dungarees, which she teamed with a skimpy monochrome plaid crop top.

In spite of her fashion blunder, Chloe looked stunning with her voluminous curls tumbling loosely around her shoulders.
And the former Made In Chelsea star's skin was still glowing with the tan from her recent stay on her father’s luxury yacht in St. Barths.

Keeping her make-up fresh and light, Chloe opted for a slick of nude lipgloss and a few coats of mascara.
She also made sure her toe nails were sporting a white colour that perfectly complimented her metallic silver sandal heels - no doubt one of her own designs.

Lauren Goodger suffers embarrassing fashion fail when black lycra jumpsuit turns see-through... and she's gone commando

Lauren Goodger, 27, suffered an extreme fashion fail when she dined out in Mayfair on Thursday evening.
The Essex babe wore a plunging black jumpsuit showing off her famously enhanced assets – but when the light hit her outfit lovely Lauren flaunted a little more than intended.
Unfortunately the 27-year-old business woman’s black lycra jumpsuit turned see-through with the paparazzi’s powerful camera flashes outside Novikov restaurant – revealing she’d decided to go without underwear for her dinner date.

Mark Wright’s former fiancée took to Twitter before she headed out on Thursday to tell fans she ‘loved’ her ‘sexy’ outfit for the evening.
The jumpsuit itself was relatively modest; despite having a rather large amount of chest on display Lauren was covered from head to toe in the tight black material.
Jumping in a taxi outside the restaurant, her fashion faux pas only got worse as she bent down to squeeze into the cab.
