As London Fashion week drew to a close and the fashion pack moved onto Milan it was time for pop (and rock) royalty to descend on the capital for The Brit awards! Two of the Lipsy girls were very lucky enough to go along and even managed to join the celebs on record label Universal's after party boat - dressed in Lipsy of course! The girls opted for two very different but equally amazing dresses; the black classic texture bodycon and the Hedonia puff dress.
The ceremony itself was jam packed with performances from lots of British and international favourites. The highlights had to be Adele and Rihanna; both had the crowd on their feet including the Lipsy girls and Florence Welsh, who was spotted dancing (like crazy) with her friends close to the stage during Rihanna's AMAZING 'We Found Love' performance! There was definitely a friendly vibe in the air as Jessie J rushed to congratulate Ed Sheernan after he won Best Britisih Break Through Act despite Jessie J being nominated too!
When it came to the dresses, it was all about full length! With Kylie, Florence, Adele, Jessie J and Nicole Scherzinger all opting for this ultra glam style. Jade from Little Mix also looked cute wearing a Lipsy Spring must-have; the boucle suit.
Now to the ultimate fashion parade - The Oscars...

The capital was even more of a fashion frenzy than usual this week with London Fashion Week taking over! The cobbles of Somerset House (home to LFW) were awash with fashion journalists, designers, bloggers and of course some very stylish celebs! It may have been raining over the weekend but it didn't put a dampener on some of the super cool outfits on show - queue lashings of colour with bold and bright dresses and colour pop bags!
We spotted American Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Olivia Palmero, Alexa Chung, Jameela Jamil, Nicola Roberts and our friend Pixie Lott stepping in and out of shows! If you're schedule is as hectic as theirs then shop the London Fashion Week edit - a rundown of the key essentials to stay stylish and take you from day to night this season.
The boucle suit is a soon to be Spring staple, with Rochelle from The Saturdays and Jade from Little Mix already stepping out in this chic Lipsy beauty! For catwalk inspiration we love how Rose Byrne has clashed her classic suit with a colour pop bag!
A blazer is the backbone in every fashionistas working wardrobe however this season it's reworked with a flash of colour - we love how how Olivia Palmero wears hers!
The fashion pack are known for their love of black but the girls at the Marchesa front row (Petra Nemcova, and Bar Rafeali to name but a few!) looked stunning and really stood out with their block colour dresses in bold jewel tones.

Beyonce returns with another show stopping collection from her uber cool label House of Dereon.
S/S 12 marks the second collection from Beyonce and her mum Tina, considering the massive cult following it's pretty hard to believe House of Dereon is still so new.
This season the prints are bold, the colours are bright and the shapes are fierce - we wouldn't expect anything less from the icon herself! With an influx of blue tones, it seems Beyonce's new baby (Blue Ivy) may have had a strong influence on her mums designs! The gold shimmer strap dress became iconic after Beyonce was photographed wearing it, this season bets are on the colour block dress to be the star piece!
When it comes to finishing touches let the dresses do the talking and keep accessories minimal, think black platforms and opt for one statement piece of jewellery such as a spiked bangle or bold stretch ring.
You can shop House of Dereon here.

All eyes have been on Tulisa this past week as she continues her fashion parade in L.A. with a selection of stunning Lipsy outfits. Tulisa has now well and truly cemented herself as a true Lipsy style icon!
Tulisa's holiday wardrobe was crammed with some of Lipsy's must have S/S12 essentials, it may still be cold this side of the pond but start your new season wardrobe early to stay ahead of the fashion pack and work key pieces into your everyday look now.
Tribal tech prints are huge for S/S12, we love the aztec style print so much that we decided to create both a skirt and dress in its honour! Can't decide which is your favourite? Go for the dress during the day like Tulisa and team the skirt with killer heels and bold lippy for evening.
Tulisa's arm candy of late is Lipsy, whether it's the classic rose gold trim dome bag or the neon pocket dome bag in the photo above. A statement bag is the perfect finishing touch for chic day to night style, we love adding a flash of neon colour to brighten up a casual look.
Tulisa nailed Parisian chic by mixing high waisted figure hugging jeans with a nautical sailor style top. Tulisa continued her nautical inspired look with an adorable playsuit - wear now and layer with tights or save for sunny summer days.

This season all eyes are on the waist as the peplum becomes the hottest silhouette this Spring. Pushing minimalism to the side the fashion pack have fallen for this trend big time, peplum detail featured on skirts, dresses, jackets and even trousers on the S/S 12 catwalks! Peplums are great for showcasing your curves and highlighting your waist, feminine frills and layered lace give a real edge to the classic shift dress.
Glee's Dianna Argon kept it simple with a black peplum dress whilst quirky Emma Stone injected some colour with a hot pink peplum dress. If full on peplum seems a little daunting then opt for a peplum skirt and team with a simple chic top.
Less is most definitely more when it comes to accessories, our staple killer heels and beaded clutch are spot on for peplum perfection.

It was a busy week for Rochelle as her and Tulisa also hit the town for a girly night out. Tulisa was spotted once again with the Lipsy dome bag - a new favourite perhaps?
