Moves Like Jagger

This post was inspired by my flatmate’s new found love of Bianca Jagger, so when she asked me to do a post on Bianca’s flawless style I couldn’t resist. The former Mrs. Mick Jagger was one stylish lady – all silky jumpsuits, low cut dresses and backstage passes attached to killer platforms heels.  As I was looking up pictures of Bianca I came across Jenny Packham’s latest collection that showed yesterday during New York Fashion Week. The Fall collection paid homage to the seventies socialite with the satin jumpsuits, oversized blazers, sequins and slits. This collection proves that over 30 years later we still all want to dress like we dated one of the Rolling Stones and danced on tables at Studio 54.

Just like Jagger herself, the pieces are elegant, decadent and effortless.The contrast of the flowing fabrics and the structured tailoring is certainly a departure for Packham, the designer know for ‘dressing Princess Catherine’. Personally I love the light jumpers paired with evening wear and the fabulous red silk trousers – I can imagine Rosie Huntington-Whitely stepping out in any one of these looks.Image

As for Bianca herself, check out the slideshow below for her best looks. If you are looking to inject some seventies style into you wardrobe Reformation and Stone Cold Fox are classic labels to look to – the Stardust Jumpsuit and Desire Gown look like they were made for Jagger. But if your bank balance is more high street than high end, Missguided have some fantastic options, with three great jumpsuits (floral, polkadot and classic black) and a standout Bianca gown you are spoilt for choice.

The Tale of Two Outfits

When we are getting ready for our Christmas parties this year, no doubt we will fall back on the LBD.

But this season why not go for something a little bit different when you are doing a last minute trolley dash before your Christmas do?

Miss Selfridges has two great twists on the black party dress – except these aren’t so little and one isn’t even a dress.

Which girl are you? Sleek and elegant in a timeless floor length gown or something a little more unexpected and trendy in the jumpsuit? I think Rosie Huntington-Whitely would look amazing in the jumpsuit while the dress is definitely something Rihanna would go for. Both outfits would look great with a dark lip, glossy hair and statement earrings. Tah-dah Christmas dressing sorted.
