The secret to looking like Cara…

…from A-List stylist to the stars and the Victoria Secret Angels, Teddy Charles!

British Vogue cover, January 2014

If you haven’t heard of Cara Delevingne you’re from another Universe, let alone another planet. The internationally renowned model is known just as much for her ability to party as her ability to work a Burberry Prorsum runway and is never out of the press whether it be in a DKNY advertisement or pictures of her watching basketball with Rihanna. The IT-girl is simply unstoppable at the moment with a bubbling acting career through the likes of up-coming movie, The Face of an Angel and Karl Lagerfeld’s Fendi film and she has also just had her second British Vogue cover shoot within ten months.

One thing that shines on the January 2014 cover, is her amazing beach waves. Despite looking relaxed and effortless, this is often the hardest hair trend to achieve. Curls either fall flat, look too poodle-esque, or too much salt spray results in a matted birds nest! 

I spoke with Teddy Charles, the stylist behind many supermodels such as Gisele, Karlie Kloss, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Jourdan Dunn and of course Cara, about how to get perfect Delevingne waves. Teddy has worked with Cara on numerous projects including the DKNY campaigns and says: “Cara is really fun – she makes everyone laugh on shoot! Her hair is in great condition too.” Want to know a HUGE secret? “I always put extensions in Cara’s hair when I style it”, says Teddy. Ah-ha! Finally the explanation to her lengthy locks. But, what about those gorgeous loose waves? Read on…

A-List stylist, Teddy Charles

A-List stylist, Teddy Charles

How to get Cara’s waves [Warning: may lead to intense strutting]:

Step 1: Wash hair with shampoo and use a tiny bit of conditioner at the tips. If hair is too moisturised it will fall flat. Rinse hair with cold water for extra shine! 

Step 2: Blast hair upside down until almost dry. Then, use a medium round bristle brush to create height and volume. Scrunch hair whilst drying to achieve gorgeous Cara-like waves!

Step 3: Spray dry shampoo at the roots for body and spritz the lengths of your hair with a little salt water for bouncing model-like tresses…

You’re welcome ladies!

Sheer Brilliance

Cheeky chic skirts are the next big thing.

Is it that time of year already? Just as we’ve folded our bikinis back in our drawers, the dust is being shaken off our faux fur. Thereafter, like a big slap in the sun kissed face next season’s collections cascade down the runway to remind us that we are now in the chilly season. Damn.

We have a wee while to wait, and to be fair great winter trends such as punk and dark florals to covet, but it doesn’t hurt to dream about next season.

The biggest SS14 trend has to be sheer skirts. Not for the faint-hearted, these jupes designed by the likes of Burberry Prorsum, Gucci, Fendi, Mulberry and Sass & Bide (just to name a few) don’t leave much to the imagination. Nevertheless, they give your legs a soft covering like a complimentary instagram filter! LOVE.

Clueless Clobber

The London Lassie gets ready to embrace nineties Beverly Hills ‘Betty’ and ‘Baldwin’ness…

clueless_fuera_de_onda_1995_8-1024x576

The new season collections are in and this season it’s super easy to match up and choose key pieces. “As if!” you say? Lets just say everyone is going to be Clueless – but in a good way!

Most twenty-something girls fondly remember the movie Clueless from E number fuelled, boy bantering, truth and dare playing sleepovers which led us to constantly mouth ‘Whatever!’ and ‘As if!’. However, watch this film now and discover its hidden jokes we didn’t get aged 10 and its fashions BANG ON with the autumn 2013 collections. When in style doubt, this year, think Cher, Dionne and Tai to channel some nostalgic chic.

Read below for some hilarious Clueless quotes. How many can you remember?

Cher’s Dad: Cher what the hell is that?
Cher: A dress.
Cher’s Dad: Says who?
Cher: Calvin Klein!

Murray: Your man Christian is a cake boy!
Cher and Dionne: (together) A what?
Murray: He’s a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde-reading, Streisand ticket-holding friend of Dorothy, know what I’m saying?

Amber: Was I the only one listening? I thought it reeked.
Cher: No, I believe that’s your designer imposter perfume.

Christian: Do you like Billie Holiday?
Cher: I love him.

Cher: If it’s a concussion, you have to keep her conscious, okay? Ask her questions.
Elton: What’s seven times seven?
Cher: Stuff she knows!

Cher: Where’s my white collarless shirt from Fred Segal. It’s my most capable looking outfit!

Cher’s Dad: Where are you?
Cher: I’m just having a snack at my girlfriend’s.
Cher’s Dad: Where, in Kuwait?
Cher: Is that in the valley?

Cher: Isn’t my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972.

Cher: I want to do something for humanity.
Josh: How about sterilization?

Cher: Do you prefer fashion victim or ensembly challenged?

Cher: He does dress better than I do, what would I bring to the relationship?

Josh: (watching news about the Bosnian conflict) You look confused.
Cher: Well, uh, I thought they declared peace in the Middle East.

Heather: It’s just like Hamlet said, “To thine own self be true.”
Cher: Hamlet didn’t say that.
Heather: I think I remember Hamlet accurately.
Cher: Well, I remember Mel Gibson accurately, and he didn’t say that. That Polonius guy did.

Tai: Do you think she’s pretty?
Cher: No, she’s a full-on Monet.
Tai: What’s a monet?
Cher: It’s like a painting, see? From far away, it’s OK, but up close, it’s a big old mess.

Cher: (in regards to losing her virginity) You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.

Cher: I was surfing the crimson wave. I had to haul ass to the ladies’.

Mel: Do you know what time it is?
Cher: A watch doesn’t really go with this outfit, daddy.

Mel: You mean to tell me that you argued your way from a C+ to an A-?
Cher: Totally based on my powers of persuasion, you proud?
Mel: Honey, I couldn’t be happier than if they were based on real grades.

Mel: You drink?
Christian: No, thanks. I’m cool.
Mel: I’m not offering. I’m asking you if you drink. You think I offer alcohol to teenage drivers taking my daughter out?
Christian: Hey man, the protective vibe. I dig.

Tai: Why should I listen to you, anyway? You’re a virgin who can’t drive.

Amber: Ms. Stoeger, my plastic surgeon doesn’t want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose.
Dionne: Well, there goes your social life.

Tai: I could really use some sort of herbal refreshment.
Dionne: Oh, well we do lunch in ten minutes. We don’t have any tea, but we have Coke and stuff.
Tai: No shit. You guys got Coke here?
Dionne: Well, yeah.
Cher: Yeah, this is America.

Cher: Daddy, did you ever have a problem you couldn’t argue your way out of?
Dad: Tell me the problem and we’ll figure out how to argue out of it.

Cher: So like, right now for example. The Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, “What about the strain on our resources?” Well it’s like when I had this garden party for my father’s birthday, right? I put R.S.V.P. ’cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some people came that like did not R.S.V.P. I was like totally buggin’. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier.And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much.

Cher: would you call me selfish?
Dionne: no, not to your face.

Round the twist

The London Lassie gets ready to embrace twirled tresses…

Caught in a summer shower last weekend my straight, sleek hair was devilishly transformed into a mop of frizz. Nevertheless, despite thinking I looked like a novelty dish washing brush, I got loads of compliments (and a few free drinks).

Summer was all about sleek locks and the slicked back look, but with more rain to come our way this autumn it seems designers have prepared us for this twist of fate as kinky manes are set to cause a storm!

One of the best hair looks from the AW13 catwalks has to be that of the Just Cavalli show. Roberto Cavalli coveted deep, defined crimps and waves. To get this look, plait damp hair and leave to dry. Then unravel twisted tresses. Easy!

Festival fashion at its finest hits Selfridges

The London Lassie is thrilled with Selfridge’s new festival inspired pop up boutique…

Free People, the coolest, hippest, festival-fairy-like American brand has FINALLY landed in the UK.

Since a recent trip to the US I have been raving about this store and have been excitedly ordering online (which my bank balance isn’t too happy about). A Free People pop up store is now located in Selfridges, Oxford Street until 11th August.

Get there fast to pick up some bohemian boho beauties!

Here are my favourite purchases from Free People:

This gorgeous slip looks great when teamed with a mini black tube skirt and bralette – love it!

This skirt is fab for summer. Tip: watch on for a gust on wind or your love heart knickers could be on view (not speaking from experience or anything…)

This jumpsuit makes me feel like I’m back at Woodstock in the 70’s!

Glam Glasto Gear

The London Lassie makes her imaginary shopping list for this year’s Glastonbury Festival…

I’ve always been a festival fan. There’s something really enjoyable about ditching showers, heels, fruit, electrical appliances and an acceptable distance from bodily fluids for a few days. The combo of dishevelled hair, warm cider, mud bronzed legs, dark eye bags complimented with neon eye-liner, chain smoking, holding one’s nose in a portaloo, and dancing under the stars to amazing acts is so fricking glamorous. It’s like being in an alternative universe for a few days. And I’m sure many would agree when I say there’s no bigger relief in the world than being in the firing line of a thrown beer cup full of warm liquid to smell cider, not piss.

I love festivals! Which is why I am severely disgruntled at the fact I don’t have one planned for the first summer since I was 16. After just helping my room mate decide on what she would wear to Glasto next week I am borderline distraught and consumed with jealousy. Imagine seeing the Rolling Stones!? Imagine dancing and boozing to Rudimental, The Arctic Monkeys and The Vaccines?! And imagine sitting chilling to the XX. Sigh…

Well I have decided to book Lovebox. I must have my fest fix this summer!

Cannes goes braid crazy!

The London Lassie is loving wonderful weaving on the red carpet…

The hair trend on the red carpet at Cannes this year was almost definitely plaits. Woven by the likes of Cara Delevingne, Nicole Kidman, Olivia Palermo and our Cheryl – it’s clear this style coveted by little girls has been grasped by the hands of the world’s top stylists.

To get the on-trend superstar look simply weave an effortless messy French plait, secure with a Cheryl and Nicole inspired black ribbon and wait for the compliments to stream in…

Everyone say #SSSNYC!

The London Lassie’s takes a trip to NYC with Sunsilk…

On behalf of my new client Sunsilk, my fellow Salt PR colleague and I flew across the pond to shoot one of the most exciting look books of the decade!

Sunsilk haven’t been in the UK for a couple of years, but they’re HUGE in many other lands named under Elidor, Seda, Sedal and Sunsilk. Their Co-created products are customised for every hair type with the help of some of the world’s top hair experts. There’s Rita Hazan, colour expert to the stars; Ouidad, the Queen of Curl; Dr. Francesca Fusco, hair fall and scalp expert; Yuko Yamashita, who invented the Yuko straightening system; Jamal Hammadi, celebrity stylist and shine guru; Teddy, the go to guy on achieving volumous hair; Tom, the dry and damaged expert and last but not least, Mauro, the Latino hair expert.

Everyone knows bloggers are the new trend setters. I personally would much rather take advice from them than some PR ran celebrity. Bloggers are inspirational, not aspirational, so Sunsilk decided to shoot a fabulous look book at Hudson Studios in New York with 6 of the worlds top fashion bloggers, and their beloved hair experts!

The lucky bloggers:

Alaa Balkhy – Saudi Arabia/New York (http://alaabalkhy.blogspot.co.uk/)
Anny Vela – Peru (http://www.radarfashion.net/)
Eunice Annabel – Singapore (http://euniceannabel.blogspot.sg/)
Marou Rivero – Argentina (http://www.marourivero.com/)
Sherry Shroff – India (http://scherezadeshroff.blogspot.co.uk/)
Zuhal Okcu – Turkey (http://www.zetfashion.com/)

They were all a JOY to work with and absolutely gorgeous!

Apart from shooting we got to spend some fun times at some amazing Big Apple venues such as The Spotted Pig (where Maria parties with Jay Z and co!), ABC Kitchen, PHD, The Boom Boom Room, The Standard, Barneys, One Oak and Craft to name a few! A great week had by all…

A special thanks to all the hair experts, the bloggers, Salt PR, Unilever, Tracy, Nick & Co at Matador Productions, Hudson Studios, Vanity Projects (for their amazing nail bar), Anna Wolf (our superstar photographer), the lovely Martha and her very talented props crew, MARIA (big apple veteran and bff to Mary J. Blige and Beyonce!), Alpha Vomero (great stylist!), Marc and Michele at Marc Perman Management and of course Jamie Magnifico for being an all round legend!

And I thought it was just me!

The London Lassie is glad not to be the only one sick of fashion week freak shows.

538331_10151747042424552_1819635168_n

As February neared I grew more and more excited. What sort of fashion art would Holly Fulton conjure up? Could Christopher Bailey top last season? I planned my outfits, and I arranged what shows and parties to go to (well, since in the fashion world I’m positively working class, I decided what parties I could get to). As Friday came I slipped on my Karl Lagerfeld camouflage dress, I slid my toes into some spiked KG shoe boots, I clutched my Alexa bag and kept the February winds at bay with a black boucle jacket with studded shoulders. If I was to walk down the high street in my tiny Scottish home town I’d probably get a few looks. At London Fashion Week? Hell no.

My friend Ramla and I strolled into Somerset house to discover a swarm of photographers gathering around a seemingly stylish, or famous individual. First thoughts were Cara Delevingne, or perhaps Jourdan Dunn? Or, could we be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Wintour cracking a smile? No. It was a girl wearing a giant cat on her head.

For seasons I’ve been thinking someone’s gotta give – I can’t be the only one that finds these exhibitionists unfashionable? That’s why I was absolutely ecstatic when I read Laura Weir’s feature, ‘Is this fashion?’ in yesterday’s issue of Style. Like myself, Weir has noticed that these ‘fashion murderers’ (a fashion victim copies, these freaks are just plain cray) are all out for publicity and to be honest, don’t know shit about what looks good. It’s style vile, not street style!

Tim Blanks, Editor-in-chief at style.com recently said street style “is empowering, but empowering in the way that reality television is empowering. It doesn’t make gods, it makes monsters”. Please Chanel (my fashion god), don’t make fashion like reality TV! I saw Arg from Towie at the last fashion week, it actually seems to be happening already!

These self promoting bloggers are all about getting photographed and will go to all odds to ensure it. Think bright colours, colourful wigs, a clash of hideous prints and necklaces made of Duplo. And most of them act disgruntled when they get pictured. You poor little infamous bloggers.

But can you go all out and get it right?

I actually think you can. But it’s rarer than seeing Victoria Beckham smile. Ever heard of Pandemonia? A giant plastic doll like ‘work of art’ that (I think) pokes at the fake and shallow culture we live in. We don’t know who the latex wearer is – is it a man, or a woman? Pandemonia is kind of the Banksy of the fashion world. P’Trique is another one. Just google him. He’s too funny for words. Take note: if you’ve got a point, or a crazy personality to match, I’ll let you off.

Which bloggers get my vote in the style stakes? Number 1 has to be Kristina Bazan, the beautiful Swiss blogger. Then Audrey Rogers (Be Frassy) and finally, an up-and-coming blogger who I think sticks to her own style, Tamara at Glam & Glitter.
