It’s been years now since I liked any of Christina Aguilera songs or her sense of style for that matter. Actually it has been since her last more or less listenable album called Back to Basics. Thus it might be surprising that her pictures seem to be the focal point of this post, but let me explain. I recently stumbled across her latest video Your Body and while the song, the storyline and the moves had no impact on me, the styling definitely struck a cord. Not even the entire result of styling, to be specific, since Christina’s clothes were unflattering and always looked like they were about to burst. For me the only thing that was done right, and not just right but omg-I-need-all-of-these-right-now kind of right, was jewellery. There was a lot of it, it was very colourful and glittery and most was by two of my favourite contemporary jewellery designers Tom Binns and Erickson Beamon. So I visited net-a-porter.com that is still my favourite destination for mid-range costume jewellery and found a lot of items in the style of the jewellery in the video to add to My Fashion Wish List.

I’m slightly excited about Cheryl Cole’s return with her new album. Not because of the music she will be bringing out, but because she is coming back to spot light and I have indeed missed my favourite clothes horse. And that is compliment. Her petite figure and natural beauty allows her to pull off practically anything and makes me (and I am sure many more like me) lust after every single thing she wears.
Last week sneak peak shots of her new video flooded the web and I could not be happier with what she is wearing: mixing up patterns, tropical prints and neon – she is ticking every trend box. Indeed it did not take me long to find pieces she was wearing, and all the fans with money to spend can easily get their hands on the outfit at net-a-porter.com!
On the picture above she is dressed in Finch tropical-print cotton-blend blazer by Altuzarra(£1040), Dolce & Gabbana leopard-print high-wasted bikini briefs (£150) and Brian Atwood Alima neon patent-leather pumps (£670). So if you have £1860 lying around you can steal her style, something that does not happen often with stars in music videos who often get pieces designed just for them.
But of course I would not tempt you with high price items without providing an affordable alternative. I searched the high street for similar pieces and here they are: Topshop tropical floral blazer (£65), Motel high waist hot pants (£20 at Asos) and Office Krazy paving neon heels (£78). Grab an outfit inspire by Cheryl for more affordable £163!
