Fashion Fix: Luxury Look of the Day, The Very Wearable Fetish Trend

I'm utterly in love with this dark and edgy look, from what originally looked like another impossible-to-wear s+m inspired trend has evolved into a (gasp!) totally wearable both look for both day and night.Mixing and matching, rather than full on fetish is the best way to stay clear of any Marilyn Manson associations. And the key to this look is to keep the full look black, black and more black. Just don't forget the attitude and the leather.

How does Nicole Ritchie look so good.. going to the gym

How the hell does Nicole Ritchie look so good as she leaves the Tracy Anderson gym in La today? Most of us don't look this good after two hours of hard graft getting ourselves ready for a night out. Just another reason to be envious of her perfect life.. Jealous even? me no.. That's why I've bought two Winter Kate cat suits and a pair of House of Harlow earrings.. now all I need is a personal training session from Tracy Anderson and we're almost the same person. Sorry, that was weird.

So, here's how you get the look..

Fashion Fix: It's shoe time!

Nicholas Kirkwood
Make your mark with some of this fabulously outrageous footwear.. my feet hurt just looking at some of these beauties but it would be so worth it.. These are what I like to call car-bar shoes, straight from the car to the bar. Perfect.

Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 11- Shop The Collection Now

Gemma Arterton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Donna Air, Sienna Miller, Mario Testino, Laura Bailey, Rachel Zoe, Ellie Goulding were just a few of the well heeled celebrities who came out for the always-exciting Burberry Prorsum show in Hyde Park, during today's London Fashion week.

Of the celebrities, five of them, including the glamorous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Sienna Miller, rocked up in tight black leather skinnies, so if there was ever a time to invest in a pair this is probably it girls.

The show was opened by the beautiful Cara Delevingne and followed by Jourdan Dunn – and were followed by a host of beautiful models in autumnal shades of dark plum, bronze, mauve, teal and ivy green, a palette that 's more suited to an autumn/winter show but with such beautiful pieces nobody's complaining, plus you can buy several pieces from the Spring summer collection right now, yes RIGHT NOW, only on Burberry (of course!) so this may be in the inspiration for such dark colours. Now Isn't that smart? As Tom Ford has pointed out several times, the shows and clothes get so much exposure that people are bored of them by the time they hit the shops, what a bright idea, in-fact an idea right on the money - to sell your products while they are still very much in everyone's mind and more importantly on their "I want this now!" list. Genius Idea.

Textures were key to the s/s 11 look  - Woven raffia bags, belts and shoes, in stripes of mustard and navy or plum and black, hardy cotton Luxury parkas whose hoods were trimmed in bulging, spiky raffia or with Shaggy fur collars. If we had any doubts about the Parka being back they are long gone!

Ellie Goulding
 Ellie mixed a rather bright shapless shirt with skinny leather jeans for a more laid-back look.
Rachel Zoe
 The formidable Miss Zoe looked as formidable as ever in an over-sized check coat with wool collar and sleeve which seemed to swamp her was cold today, not that cold.
Laura Bailey
 The serene looking Laura Bailey looked stunning in a classic Burberry mac.
Sienna Miller
 Sienna Miller was obviously too busy to make too much of an effort but at least she looked pretty!
Donna Air
 Donna Air looked kooky and fun in an over-sized jacked and green jumper over shinny leather skinnies.
Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley
 Rosie embodies the S/S collection from head to toe. You can buy the full look right now on Burberry.
Gemma Arterton
 Gemma decided on a classic look with a twist, opting for a white shirt and a black jacket and skinny jeans.

Fashion Fix: New Season Picks

It's a new dawn, a new day.. A new season with lots of great pieces to offer. This is a first in a series of my top picks from the new season trends.. 
Chelsea Boot by Topshop
The Chelsea boot is here for another season, add a smattering of glitter and you've got a winner on your hands. I've fallen head over heels for these sparkly duos. Glitter Boots? I hear you ask.. well yes, and while I know I'll look back in two or three seasons time and ask myself just what was I thinking by declaring this obsession, I think you'll find glitter + any shoe or boot= fashion gold. These bad boys are from Topshop and are totally perfect for the dark months ahead. They are sold out right now but I remain optimistic!

Metallics are are going to be big, mega big, this season but if you can't bear the thought of a a clingy metallic skirt or a high shine jumper why not ease yourself into the trend with a beautiful metallic bag. My money is on this gorgeous classic bag by Balenciaga. Just Do It.

The Parka, the undisputed jacket for looking cool while partaking in outdoor pursuits ( I don't ever partake in outdoor pursuits, I was talking about you), is back. Say goodbye to ugly satin or cheap cottons and hello to beautiful detailing and luxurious finishes such as rabbit fur lining and luxe padded bodies. My top pick is this beautiful piece from Weekend Maxmara, it's got an element of the original parka style but is perfect for the months ahead with a warm rabbit fur lining, which I must admit I'm a little partial to.

Aztec Prints are going to be everywhere, it's not the easiest trend to carry off but the only way to make this look your own is to really go for it. Pile loose layers over leggings. Mix graphic tees and knits with the parka above. if the leggings are too much test it out with a cardigan or bag first .. Go on, you know, you wanna!

Wear the above with a brightly coloured cable knit jumper or cardigan.. it's a bit matchy, matchy but I'm loving this one! It's for a man but I think it would look great on a more petite size too.
