Envy | Margot Robbie

She’s Australia’s hottest export right now, starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street. Not only is this woman smokin’ hot and uber talented (see the film!) but she is my latest style crush.

Margot Robbie was raised on the Gold Coast and is from the alumni of the Aussie soap Neighbours.  Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street is her breakout Hollywood role and with two more films in the pipeline (Focus with Will Smith and Z for Zacharia with Chris Pine) and talks to play Jane in Tarzan, we will be seeing a lot more of this local beauty.

About Town | Olivia Palermo as SS13 Icon of Style

A little while back I featured Olivia Palermo in Closet Envy as she is one of my style icons. So it’s only fitting that I attended the launch of Olivia Palermo as Chadstone Shopping Centre’s Spring Summer 2013 ‘Icon of Style.’

I was lucky enough to briefly meet Olivia and hear her talk about her style, inspiration and tips for creating a chic outfit. There’s really no better person to give this advice, as she looks polished and sophisticated every time she leaves the house (and I would know, I follow her blog and instagram).

One thing she said that I believe in strongly is “I love wearing things over and over again…because you re-invent it. It really tests yourself to re-style and be a bit more creative”. I love the challenge of re-styling my small wardrobe into new outfits every day. Sometimes it only takes a change of accessories to refresh your look, and like Olivia P, I love my accessories!

Not only did Olivia look as stylish as ever in her Witchery bomber jacket, skater skirt and bold gold jewellery, but she was lovely and genuinely sweet to everyone.

Here are some pics from the launch event.

Staples | Leopard Print Shirt

Leopard is a print that struts down the catwalk season after season. The magazines try to sell it to us as a trend, but I think we can all agree it’s a staple!

In 1925, American film actress Marian Nixon created quite a sensation in the fashion world by matching her new fur coat with her pet. She was seen parading a pet leopard on a leash down Hollywood Boulevard.

Christian Dior’s muse, Mitzah Bricard, was fascinated by leopard print. Dior was the first to use leopard as a print (and not fur) in his 1947 spring-summer collection. Leopard print represented the post-war return to glam and provided a welcome reprieve from fabric rationing after World War II.

Wearing leopard print was synonymous with great sophistication and elegance. No woman’s ensemble was complete without a touch of leopard. Iconic screen sirens like Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot and Barbra Streisand firmly linked leopard print to luxury as they wore it through the next few decades.

Italian designer Roberto Cavalli first came onto the fashion scene in the 1970’s and has used leopard print in every collection which has brought him great success.

The wild side of animal print appeared in the mid-1970′s. The Punk Rock movement saw leopard print worn with ripped denim and motorcycle jackets. Rebellious music paired with the wild print created an illusion of being sexy and dangerous.

The 80’s brought leopard print back into glamour mode, worn with diamonds, fur and sequins. This decade of fashion lacked much ‘sophistication’ but leopard print was a symbol of wealth and style.

In the 1990’s leopard print took a fatal turn to trash-town. The print’s rebellious sexiness of the 70’s was mashed with its over-the-top glamour of the 80’s, which resulted in leopard print becoming a symbol of overt sexuality. Characters in TV and film wore leopard print to convey their ‘sexiness’, pop stars turned to leopard print to establish their ‘sex status’.

Since the late 2000’s we have seen leopard print regain its allure and today the print stands for sex, sophistication and luxury in equal parts.

I love leopard print on anything and everything: shoes, bags, skirts, pants, jackets, scarves…anything! However a classic leopard print shirt is something I believe every gal should have in her closet.

This one by Equipment is my favourite:

A leopard print shirt can be dressed up or down, worn with boyfriend jeans or a pencil skirt. The options are endless as leopard print is made up of neutral colours and so is a neutral itself.

Here is some styling inspiration.
