jones + jones spotted at Paris Haute Couture fashion week!!

Although jones + jones is designed and produced in London our gorgeous designs are very much loved worldwide and this was evident on Monday night when a model was spotted wearing the oh-so-flattering jones + jones Poppy Dress in pretty pink to a much hyped fashion show held in Paris!

The show was part of Paris Haute Couture fashion week which saw lingerie couturiere Zahia Dehar showcase her new collection. The show was attended by the likes of head designer and creative director for Chanel Karl Lagerfeld, who shot the official pictures for Zahia’s first collection in January this year.

The jones + jones Poppy Dress in pink has a short-sleeved chiffon-lined lace bodice with a gorgeous Peter Pan collar, adding a dainty edge to an already ultra-feminine dress. The flirty skirt and net-trimmed petticoat add volume making this the perfect dress for all your upcoming summer events!

Celebrity summer style at jones + jones

Here at jones + jones we have your summer style covered. From full and flirty skirts to cute cut away details and plunging deep V’s we have a variety of styles on offer to keep you looking stylish and on trend all summer long. We’re loving these celebrities pretty summer style, why not take style inspiration from them and get yourself a new jones + jones dress..

 

Starting with Cheryl Cole who stepped out in Paris recently in tangerine dress with cut away side panels which flashed just enough flesh for a sexy day to night look. To recreate Cheryl’s style why not try the jones + jones Saffron Dress in broderie white with a oh-so-sweet floral fabric, cut out sides and a net trimmed petticoat it is the perfect girly summer time dress!

 

For plunging deep V’s in soft nude colours take inspiration from the stunning Kim Kardashian who wore this figure hugging number with a deep V for a shopping trip recently. The jones + jones Florence Dress in peach has a daring deep V which leads to a fitted waistband which hugs the figure and shows of curves – the perfect attention grabbing dress!

 

For something a little more girly and flirty take inspiration from actress Ginnifer Goodwin who wore this gorgeous white lace fit and flare dress with half sleeves to a red carpet event recently. Ginnifer looked ultra-glam and feminine – to copy her style why not try the jones + jones Border Laura dress in white, with a sheer top, nipped in waist and net trimmed petticoat this dress oozes femininity and glamour!

 

For a hot evening look guaranteed to turn heads look to the beautiful Mila Kunis who wore this stunning black metallic gown recently. To copy her look try the jones + jones Stephanie dress in black which ticks all the right boxes, slashed to the waist and with a gorgeous sequin skirt this is the only dress you need for hot summer evenings.

 

All dresses are available online on our website and in selected Topshop stores now. Get yours before they sell out.

A glimpse into the glamorous world of our amazing make-up artist, Katy Nixon!

You may have seen her name mentioned on our blog before but if not, we’d like to introduce you to our amazing make-up artist Katy Nixon! She helps to add those finishing touches that transform our location shots from very pretty to absolutely stunning! We’ve asked her to tell us abit more about herself and we’re very honoured to have the opportunity to share with you a little insight into her glamorous world…

 

 

I have been a make-up artist since 2003, but have been around fashion from an early age, as it is in my family so I was lucky enough to do work experience on editorial photo shoots and help backstage at Fashion Week. It was after assisting at that early age that I knew I wanted to be a fashion make-up artist and finally found an outlet to combine my two biggest passions art and fashion. I would always look through the glossy fashion magazines and see all the big campaigns. I would really want to be a part of them and  just knew there was nothing else I wanted to do.

 

My favourite thing about being a make-up artist is making people feel good and confident about themselves and knowing that I have made them look their best is very rewarding. But of course the travel is great and seeing lots of amazing locations.  Also doing something different all the time is great, as sometimes when you’re a creative you can get bored easily and I enjoy not falling into a routine all the time.

My most glamorous client (apart from jones + jones, of course!) is Louis Vuitton. Working amongst such amazing expensive couture garments is a major perk and gets me really excited. Although most people would expect my celebrity work to be more glamourous, I always prefer the buzz at Fashion Week and the satisfaction a great shot at an editorial can bring.  However being flown to L.A for the Oscars with one of my celebrity clients was also pretty glamourous!

 

 

My top make-up tip for S/S 2012 is keep it really light and fresh, change your smoky eye to something more nude and opt for a brighter colour on the lip for a younger more girly look.

 

Highlighters are great at this time of year and give the skin that gorgeous dewy glow that we always see on the red carpet.

My favourite jones + jones dress is the Florence Dress because it is super feminine but edgy at the same time and I love the peach and coral colours…

 

 

If I had to choose just one beauty product to pair with such a gorgeous outfit, it would be a good bronzer nothing looks better with coral than sun-kissed skin.

My one piece of advice for any aspiring make-up artists is to never say no to anything, you never know who you are going to meet along the way!

 

Thank you so much to Katy for allowing us a glimpse into her fabulous career and you can check out more about Katy and her work on her website www.katynixon.com!

Watch this space for exclusive stunning summer make-up tips from Katy very soon!

With love, jones + jones x

Beyoncé’s band wearing jones + jones!

jones + jones Facebook fans will recall that back in July we were very excited to find out that Tina Knowles had purchased five of our dresses and just as we’d given up hope of spotting them, lo and behold last night Beyoncé’s band were wearing them on ITV!

Last night ‘A Night With Beyoncé’ aired on ITV and we absolutely loved the show, with the fabulous lady herself alongside her very talented band giving amazing performances of her best selling hits!

So far we’ve managed to spot three jones + jones dresses in two different styles on the show!

Firstly the stunning jones + jones Sadie Dress in white on the Cellist…

and the guitarist!…

 

With it’s deep ‘V’, flounce trimmed neckline, flirty full skirt and sheer billowing sleeves, this is definitely a statement dress!…

The jones + jones Sadie Dress in white

Meanwhile the Violinist wore the gorgeous jones + jones Pleated Lace Vivienne Dress in cream!

Floral lace, a prim high neckline with a deep ‘V’ cut at the back and net-trimmed petticoat underneath the full pleated skirt, this dress is ultra-feminine with a seductive twist!

The jones + jones Pleated Lace Vivienne Dress in cream

From the edgy styling to the note-perfect renditions to Beyoncé’s great sense of humour, we loved every second of the show!

Check out the Sadie Dress in white on our website here and the Pleated Lace Vivienne Dress in cream here! If you spotted any other jones + jones garments in the show please let us know!
