Off the court

For those of us that aren’t into the WAG fashion at the World Cup; we can turn to Wimbledon instead for some more fashionable ladies such as FashAddict favourite Jameela Jamil, 90210′s Jessica Lowndes, style icon Grace Jones and smokin’ hot actor Nicholas Hoult. Check out the action above from the Evian VIP suite. For more information visit http://www.wimbledon.org/offcourtfeatures

FOXY tied the knot

Megan Fox & Brian Austin Green

Megan fox and Beverly Hills 90210 Star Brian Austin Green tied the knot in a small service at the Four Season’s Resort on the tropical island of Hawaii yesterday.

A spokesperson said “They had to call in local security because the hotel security alone wouldn’t do. It was very hush hush. Everyone was sworn to secrecy. It seemed like a spur of the moment thing.”

Girl’s you can now let out your boyfriends because the Fox is officially off the market.

Style solutions: Urban Jungle

urban jungleFor those of us that aren’t jetting off to sunnier tropical climates this summer, it seems difficult to justify the purchase of a new bikini and an embellished kaftan… however when the weather is warm, the city is unbearably humid and sweaty.

So this week I’ve put together a couple of looks to help you look your best on a hot day in the big smoke, whilst you are keeping as cool as possible. Channeling the safari trend for city wear is a fresh new take on your summer wardrobe, a welcome change from all the floral prints and romantic pastel shades. Team earthy colours with slouchy fabrics, a pair of gladiators and a great hat then you are good to go. I love the “Beth” shorts Va Vizuri currently have in stock and putting them with the black leopard print cardigan from To Love Kuvaa is another nod to the jungle safari look. If you would prefer to be a bit more covered up and avoid the chance of sun burnt legs then grab the buckle detail harem pants and drapey vest from Brick Lanes Finest and you are sorted.

Now you have no excuse to not be looking slick in the city in every season.

Nike78

One for all you sneaker freaks, Nike 78 is a new project created to merge cutting edge design talent and the trusty Nike trainer. The 78 refers to the 78 creatives who will each be sent a new pair of Nikes and, using sport as inspiration, will challenge their traditional function and create weird and wonderful new interpretations of the footwear. The progress of these inspired ventures can be tracked at nike78.co.uk and will eventually be collated into an exhibition to feature in the London Design Festival in September.

Highlights include Erica Dorn’s mouth-watering Marathon Cake which is the exact negative calorific value of a marathon; all shaped beautifully into a trainer with pink laces to boot and Fred Butler and Chrissie Abbott’s Lets Get This Shoe On The Road remote control car Nikes.

Multi-Tasking

Today as I was listening to the radio I heard there was a bikini that has a bottle opener attached. I laughed and imagined what on earth that would look like. It’s obviously for couples, could you imagine a random guy coming up to you and popping the lid off his beer? He would get a slap!

That said these bikini’s look really nice, I’d say go on girls go out and buy one especially if you gotta guy he will really love it.

MORE MULTI-TASKING

Harrods sales staff have the chance to gain a degree in sales while they are at work

Just another element of multi-tasking, employees of Harrods can now get a BA (HONS) Sales Degree exclusively at Harrods.

It’s a 24 month course with modules on human behaviour, psychology and business enterprise.

The degree is free with no tuition costs and lectures will take place during normal working hours and to me that sounds like the best bit.

So if any of you out there are thinking about spending thousands to go university try getting into Harrods, get a degree free, get paid all at the same time and maybe you might learn something about shopping psychology, product knowledge and all that jazz.
