Legends

I love Chrissy Teigen and John Legend! I follow Chrissy on Instagram and she posts honest and often hilarious insights into their blessed life. I definitely recommend following her if you aren’t already. Here is a sneak peak into their New York apartment. It was designed by Don Stewart to be a private retreat and the couple love the dark, moody atmosphere of the interior of their one-bedroom loft style residence. item1.rendition.slideshowVertical.john-legend-chrissy-teigen-don-stewart-designed-manhattan-apartment-02-wm How cool is that steel wall in the dining area? A perfect backdrop to make the mixed media art work by Mike Weber pop. item2.rendition.slideshowHorizontal.john-legend-chrissy-teigen-don-stewart-designed-manhattan-apartment-03-wm I love the combination of the dusky blues and the metallic furniture pieces. Really contributes to a sense of cosy comfort. item3.rendition.slideshowHorizontal.john-legend-chrissy-teigen-don-stewart-designed-manhattan-apartment-04-wm The design of the house is a great lesson in how using a cohesive styling and colour palette throughout your home pulls everything together in unison. The kitchen continues the same blue tones and metallic features and what about that custom made splash back  – devine! item4.rendition.slideshowHorizontal.john-legend-chrissy-teigen-don-stewart-designed-manhattan-apartment-05-wm Of course the home wouldn’t be complete without an area for music. I’m loving the contrast between the hard materials like the brick wall and the reclaimed wood wall, with the bright modern splash of colour from the Lynne Mapp Drexler painting.

Pernille Teisbaek of Look De Pernille fame has me craving a black shirt after posting this classic look recently on her blog.

I went on a web hunt to find four options for this wardrobe staple, all under $50.

Another Stunner

Well the celebrity wedding style train rolls on, this time with one of my all time favourite style maidens, Olivia Palermo. She recently completed part one of her wedding festivities (a very small civil ceremony held in NY) wearing a super stylish Carolina Herrera ensemble that consisted of a classic full skirt over shorts, a cashmere sweater and blue Manolo’s (of Carrie Bradshaw fame).

Shorts on her wedding day! A-Mazing! And how dapper does her husband, German model Johannes Huebl look?

I can’t wait to see what part deux of their wedding celebrations look like!

The Lob

The more Axel grows the more I’m becoming resigned to the fact that long hair and babies don’t really work and that the top knot has become my best friend. I’m still unsure as to whether I want to chop it off to the length that my fabulous hairdresser Lucy describes as a Lob – a long bob. Or, do I continue to go into battle with my sons fingers on the odd occasion when I actually have the time to ‘do’ my do.

If I decide to go the route of the Lob then this feature from Marie Claire shows how the medium length hair style is actually the length of choice for many celebrities.

Impressed

I have to say Kim K that you really got it right this time with your wedding dress! Move over Vera Wang, Givenchy Haute Couture designer Riccardo Tisci created a breath-taking gown for the new Mrs West (hopefully third time lucky right Kim?!)

Some didn’t rate the panel at the front likening it to a bib, however I think it allowed the lace detailing and stunning shape of the gown to shine and I am so pleased she didn’t over do it this time with accessories, instead opting for a chic hair-do and minimal jewellery. Kanye has definitely groomed her well!

Not to be outdone, Poppy Delevingne who recently married her fiancé James Cook, looked stunning in her Chanel couture dress (King Karl (Lagerfeld) really can do no wrong). Poppy was another bride who opted for a demure hair style and minimal extras, allowing the dress to really steal the show.

And then Poppy and James went and got hitched a second time in Marrakech, Morocco! Ah-MAZING!!! This time she channeled a hippy vibe and wore a beautiful Emilio Pucci dress for the ceremony, before changing into a white crochet dress with bright coloured beading for the after party. Sounds like a rocking wedding week to me!

Keeping up With Kourtney Kardashian at Home

The eldest sister of the Kardashian empire has created a fun, funky home with the help of interior designer Jeff Andrews. I love that her home incorporates a variety of pieces from family members (the pink chaise lounge belonged to sister Khloe and the office desk belonged to her late father). The home is also (reasonably!) child friendly and looks functional as well as fabulous. Check out the whole feature over at InStyle.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone! X
