Steal Her Style: Miley Cyrus’ ‘Miss Selfridge’ Fur Bolero

Standard


miley-cyrus-cosmopolitan-pic148734

2013 has been the year of Miley Cyrus‘ style revolution. In the last 12 months she’s shaved 3/4 of her hair off, got in the best shape that she’s ever been in, and is now blamed for the evolution of the world’s funniest dance move- the ‘twerk’! Personally I’m quite a fan of the new punky Miley, and I think she looks pretty darn fierce on the new US Cosmopolitan December cover.

One item in particular that’s caught my eye in her shoot is a feather fur bolero jacket. After a quick peruse of the ‘Miss Selfridge‘ website, it became apparent that this item was from the High Street favourite, and didn’t have a several thousand dollar price tag, as it costs a modest £130– a fair price for fur, I’m sure you’ll agree. The colour is nude, despite its lilac appearance in the magazine photo- that’s just down to good lighting! This dry-clean only  jacket is covered in turkey feathers, and is available in Sizes Small-Large. Get in there before all the ‘Smilers’ do!

Steal Her Style: Katy Perry’s 2 Piece Bodycon Set At The ‘KCA’s

Katy Perry broke the usual dress-only unspoken rule at the ‘Kids Choice Awards‘ this year when she wore a bodycon 2 piece set by ‘Max Azria for Hervé Léger.’ Now, ‘Hervé Léger‘ is known for its bandage dresses that cost well into the thousands apiece, and can only really be worn by those with washboard flat stomachs, but she can certainly pull it off!

I adore the blue and neon yellow coloured geometric print on this piece, and was delighted this week when I found a High Street alternative. I stumbled across ‘Famous Frocks‘ when I was on ‘The Valleys‘ star Lateysha‘s Twitter page, as she has just purchased this very outfit, and was asking followers if she should wear it out. At just £99, it’s a fantastic alternative to the designer version, and it’s available in sizes 6-14. Gimme!

Steal Her Style: Taylor Swift’s Blue Sequins At ‘Billboard Music Awards’

Standard

taylor-swift-in-zuhair-murad-billboard-music-awardsTaylor Swift looked phenomenal at Sunday night’s ‘Billboard Music Awards 2013‘ in this long-sleeved sequinned Zuhair Murad number- the outfit alone deserved the 8 trophies that she took home! I am obsessed with this daring shade of royal blue at the moment, and can totally see why she chose it with her sandy blonde locks.

Whilst I can’t find a practically identical version on the High Street, I have found several considerably cheaper alternatives, listed below. (I believe the reason for my struggle is the majority of the population deem it socially unacceptable to wear sequins all year-round, and only at Christmas– these people need to lighten up, quite literally!)

Steal Her Style: Miley Cyrus’ Badass ‘Oh Shit!’ Crop Top For Under $50

Standard

Miley Cyrus is one hip gal, that is for sure…the badass ‘Ashtrays & Heartbreaks‘ singer posted several pictures of Twitter yesterday of her modeling an ultra hot crop top for all the world to see. The cheeky design by ‘Dimepiece‘, a stretchy scoop necked tank with the words “oh shit!” emblazoned across it, was worn for a night out with a few drinks (non-alcoholic, of course), over the weekend.

It retails at $44, so at least it is easy for MC stans to pick their own copy up at a non-celebrity price. It’s available at ‘Dimepiece‘ in sizes Small-Large. The brand describe their ideal customer as being: “independent, forward thinking, fun as all hell and lives out loud.” I would so totally wear this…
