Olivier Awards 2012: Kara Tointon – get the look

Firstly huge apologies I have not blogged in so long. I have had a manic past two weeks prepping, styling and sorting returns for celebrity clients whom include the gorgeous Kara Tointon and fabulous Olympic Ambassador Dame Kelly Holmes. Alongside this I’ve been working a lot with www.whatbesttowear.com whom I write all their social season fashion and beauty tips for.

You may have noticed in the papers and online yesterday that Kara was in fact was regarded very highly on most of the best dressed lists which – for a stylist – can be no bigger accolade. Therefore when trying to achieve the same style why not splurge the cash (if you have it) on a duplicate Minka dress by Alice+Olivia at Oxygen Boutique (38 Eastcastle Street, w1). Team with nude Christian Louboutin heels and a black clutch bag (also from Louboutin) and finish with black diamonds courtesy of Garrard jewellers.

However, if you are more save than splurge head straight to the high street or online where stores such as Lovely’s Vintage will be stacked with 1920s flapper style gowns: Www.goddiva.co.uk also offer great inspiration. When trying to source nude peep toe heels look no further than stores such as Dune, Aldo, Dorothy Perkins, River Island et al; they all have similar options which can also be used for smart work wear situations. To emulate the black diamond effect head straight to Topshop where their in-house brands alongside concessions such as Mikey will take all the hard work out of looking for you…..

Happy shopping!
