Steal her style: Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara is one of the most talked about actresses of 2011 (and 2012 so far!) due to her role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and is currently on tour promoting it. Not only is she a talented actress but her style credentials are very impressive too…

Rooney Mara

Rooney wore a gorgeous Louis Vuitton LBD at the Paris premiere yesterday and we think she looked stunning! Combining a nipped-in waist, full skirt and sequin sweetheart bodice with understated accessories, ensured Rooney looked feminine and oh-so-chic.

Steal her style with the jones + jones Holly Dress in black or Nessie Dress in Liberty grey floral print

Pretty pleats at Prada!

Taking inspiration from 1950s America, Prada’s S/S 2012 collection combined vintage style prints of florals, cars and ferocious flames, with candy pastel colours and of course you couldn’t be inspired by 1950s Americana without including gorgeously feminine pleats…

From textured to printed, chiffon to leather and sheer to block colour patterns, pleats were big news at Prada for next season.

Get ahead of the trends now and channel your own modern take on 50′s style with any of our gorgeous pleated and flirty full-skirted dresses…

Sheer glamour…

Sheer fabrics were seen on all of the hottest A/W 2011 catwalks from Gucci to Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney to Marc Jacobs. Yves Saint Laurent and Valentino championed the sheer neckline, ensuring seductive flashes of flesh without giving too much away…
