The Best Celebrity Looks From Coachella 2016

I have a confession to make: over the last two weekends I had major FOMO! As yet another perfectly-boho clad blogger swooshed across my Instagram screen, I started to wonder if I was the only person in the Western world who wasn’t at Coachella. As #Noachella started to trend, I felt a little bit less green and instead started drooling over the fashions on the desert-y fields.

With the on-going rise of social media and celebrity ‘it girl’ culture, Coachella has become less of a music festival and more of an un-official runway showcasing the hottest street style looks. Today, I’ve gathered the best Coachella looks for you to oogle at, as well as tips on how to re-create this perfect hippy looks yourself, Banarsi style.

Alessandra Ambrosio

This Victoria’s Secret angel can rock more than just wings! Alessandra shows off that body in a bikini top, cut-off denims and a flower crown. Our favorite part of this look? That boho shawl and those drool-worthy Stuart Weizman sandals!

Steal Her Style

For a cosy and vibrant shawl, rap up in the solid color scarf. With 19 colors to choose from, there’s one for every look!

We love the purple aztec print scarf hanging from her shorts. Our geometric print scarf will guarantee you the same effect.

Kaia Gerber

90s grunge gets a bit of a 70s makeover! Kaia shows a cheeky pop of lace bralette in a low-cut wrap top. At Coachella, there is no such thing as over-accessorizing and she has nailed it with layered chokers, round sunglasses and a lip-print kimono scarf. P.S. these boots were made for walking (in mud).

Steal Her Style

With a black printed, fringe scarf, you can totally nail this boho chic-meets- rocker vibe. Our solution? The tropical floral scarf.

Nina Dobrev

As Taylor Swift said, ‘I think chokers are the new flower crowns’. Nina compliments her minimalist suede choker with druzy stones and a floppy hat. This lacey bralet and suede skirt are perfectly pulled together by this sheer printed kimono. Plus, are those frills on her boots? We want!

Steal Her Style

A scarf over your shoulders is an easy alternative to a kimono. Opt for a neutral paisley print, such as the paisley wool scarf.

 

Chiara Ferragni

The worlds hottest blogger babe sizzled in a bustier denim dress. The bindi and double buns are just oh-so-Coachella! This pom pom adorned silk scarf is seriously what dreams are made of.

Get The Look

Layer the paisley silk scarf over a pom pom or coin necklace to rock a similar exotic look.

Kendall Jenner

See through, cut out and low-cut; only Kendall Jenner could look on-point in something this revealing! She adds a chunky, silver necklace and round sunglasses and looks every bit boho! I think I can see a double bun trend starting to accumulate…

Jasmine Tookes & Taylor Hill

The two newest angels take their friendships to hairy new heights with double head scarves! Jasmine goes for a regal vibe with a messy bun, whilst Taylor goes beachy with volumnious waves.

Steal Her Style

For Jasmine’s dreamy mustard do, opt for the artistic print silk scarf in brown. Wrap around the crown and team with an undone topknot.

If Taylor’s rocker waves are more up your alley, tie the exotic print silk scarf in amonst huge waves.

Jamie Chung

Sheer has never looked so classy! Jamie layers this stunning sheer, embellished dress over a retro black bikini to keep it modest! Studded black boots, mirrored sunglasses and a fedora give this look a bit of an outback edge.

Vanessa Hudgens

All hail the queen of Coachella! Vanessa seriously nails it again in clashing, flowing floral prints and layered necklaces. Plus: I don’t think Coachella hair gets better than this!

Steal Her Style

Team a floral maxi with a floral print scarf. The chunky, yet tropical prints on the floral paisley scarf were practically made for Vanessa!

Suki Waterhouse

Suki ditches the boho dress code and shines in a sequin mini dress over shorts. Note to self: sequins are not just for festivities, you can wear them with sneakers! She seems to have got the choker memo though!

The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift For YOUR Mum

Our Mum is literally the one that we owe our whole lives to. They’ve been the ones to change our dirty nappies (ew), hold us when we’re sad and there to listen to our endless rants about our 9-5s. One things for sure, the Spice Girls’ song ‘Mama I love you’ was a complete understatement. We don’t just love our Mum’s, we love them more than anything.

With mothers day just around the corner, FYI it’s on the 8th of May (not that you forgot), it’s time to spoil our favorite ladies in our lives! If you’re struggling to find a perfect gift, turn that frown upside down! We’ve got you covered! We’ve pin-pointed five Mum types and provided the perfect gift solutions!

The Home-Maker

She spends most of the time in the home, her palace. Whether she’s trying out a new cake recipe or sewing up some new curtains for the living room, this Mum is a real home-body at heart. So this mothers day, take her place in the kitchen and whip her up some home made baked goods. What better way to show her that she taught you well?

The Perfect Gift

She’s got her baking skills down to a tee, so why not treat her with something that will add a glamorous edge to her dinner parties? The hand embroidered place mat and table runner set comes with six place mats and one table runner, all of which are hand beaded and embroidered.

Purple

If she prefers a cottage-y vibe, this jacquard paisley table runner will add a touch of 1950s elegance to her tea parties.

The New Lease Of Life

Since you and your siblings have moved out, your Mum metaphorically screamed ‘freedom’ and has reverted back to a younger state of mind ever since. She seems to have acquired a travel list way longer than yours and is ticking them off pretty fast in her retired bliss. She is commonly found partying with backpackers in Thailand a third of her age and scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef. You spend your days waiting for that fearful moment when she announces she is about to sky dive, then cringe on the inside at how much braver and cooler she is than you. Mum: You’re crazy!

The Perfect Gift

Chances are, you’re not going to be booking her that skydive anytime soon! Instead, indulge in her wanderlust with exotic printed cushion covers. Whether these beauties bring back warm memories of Morocco, or simply inspire her to take a trip there, she will love them.

The Nostalgic

Her most-used phrases include ‘back in my day’ and ‘when I was younger’. Although it’s 2016, and she’s in her mid sixties, her heart will always belong to the Sixties; the days of her youth! When you turn on the radio, her response is always ‘is this that Justin Beibers?’ and she wouldn’t know who Beyonce and Jay Z were if they stood in front of her and did the macerana. Despite this, the world is waay too fast paced and you adore her old-age attitude and outlook on life. Plus: Boho is so on trend right now!

The Perfect Gift

Embrace her era and get her some suitably hippy-ish home decor pieces to add to her home. The exotic oriental table runner will bring about memories of peace and Woodstock, whilst the solid geometric pillow cover is so Mod, that it could have been seen in Twiggy’s house!

The Mother Earth

Sunshine is like oxygen for your Mum! As soon as there’s a glimpse of rays in the sky, she’ out in the garden with a weeding bucket and a watering can! Her weekends are spent embracing natures beauty on long hikes or trips to castles and national parks. She is like a living, breathing encyclopedia of local flora and fauna and the question ‘what flower is this?’ is often met with a lengthy explanation of facts and figures. She is an embodiment of mother earth an the world would truly be a greater place if more people treated the planet like she did.

The Perfect Gift

This floral pillow cover will make a perfect addition to your mothers outdoor seating area. The neutral tones will ensure it can easily migrate to the indoor areas during the Winter too.

Although Spring may be filled with rays of sunshine, the chill has not quite completely gone away yet. Let your Mum enjoy the outdoors in comfort and style by treating her to the floral pure wool scarf.

The Youngster

When you hear the phrase ‘down with the kids’, your stomach turns a little. This phrase was basically made for your Mum. Known by your friends as ‘the life and soul of the party’, your Mum lives for having a good time and often tries to infiltrate your friendship group like she’s ‘one of the girls.’ Your friends love her. Between the shots, life advice and brunches, they see a woman who really knows the definition of a good time. And you’re thankful that she’s this way, she’s a best friend, a Mum and a party pal rolled into one Superwoman.

The Perfect Gift

Let’s be honest, your Mum is one stylish lady! No matter what her home decor theme, these minimalist shimmering spiral placemats would be an on-trend and fashionable addition to her kitchen.

Gold

The boho trend is still all the rage! Help your Mum to embrace this trend in an age-appropriate manner with the exotic silk scarf.

Happy Mothers day to all the Mothers, Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers! Without you, the world would probably stop turning!

5 Colorful Wedding Palettes

Ah… weddings! If you’re reading this, maybe you’re about to head down that isle with the love of your life. Perhaps your a maid of honor or a sister trying to keep your friends inner bridezilla at bay. Either way, when it comes to color schemes, the talk of anything not white or cream has a strange habit of turning your stomach upside down. For bridesmaids, maybe you fear that hideous mustard dress. For the bride to be, surely anything that isn’t white or neutral is instantly tacky? **Insert photos of hot pink gypsy dresses here**

I’m here to stamp a huge ivory heel on that myth! Ok… I don’t suggest any ochre and snot green combos for your big day **shudders**, but if done correctly, a colorful wedding can actually be really memorable! In a positive way of course!

Here’s five surprisingly classy and elegant color schemes for your big day…

Blush And Navy

Dark shades like navy can seem daunting for a wedding. That’s why this blush and navy combination truly came as a stunning surprise to me. There’s something so intricately beautiful about the juxtaposition of the light and dark and masculine and feminine aspects of this color combinations.

If you’re concerned about this theme being too dark, go for blush as your main tone and add navy accents. Feel free to add white and cream tones to make it more traditional too.

Anyone who says that navy can’t be romantic needs to take a serious look at this table layout! A satin base tone is stunningly uplifted by a plethora of blush flora and rose gold accents.

Get The Look

For a deep navy base, adorn your table with the hand embroidered tablecloth.

King Blue

For a stunning neutral contrast, dot the floral paisley placemats on each guests place.

When it comes to the bouquet, a little navy makes a huge statement!

A navy suit is a fresh and fashionable take on the classic black donning groom. Keep the blush tie and corsage on the neutral side of the spectrum to stop it looking tacky.

A satin navy table runner really glams up a rustic table. Blush florals and rose gold adornments keep it the perfect balance of shabby and polished.

Get The Look

This rustic table does not need a tablecloth. Instead, highlight the stunning center pieces by adding a table runner. The hand embroidered table runner in king blue would make a welcome addition.

If a whole group of bridesmaids in navy is too much, why not dress your maid of honor in navy and the other ladies in blush?

Purple And Orange

This color combination is about as warming as it gets! Although artists argue if purple is a warm or cold tone, glowing orange shades are sure to pull it over to the warm side of the spectrum.

This pairing gives across an air of Eastern luxury and is perfect for Bollywood weddings! Add metallic embellishments and satin textures to the mix for a truly regal result.

Layers upon layers of lavish mauve fabric make this seating area fit for a queen! The tall floral arrangements allow your guests to see each others faces, whilst still looking beautiful.

Get The Look

The heavy drama of this table set up is due to the combination of printed cloths and runners. Stick to an identical purple hue for each piece, but look for different patterns, prints or embellishments. We suggest combining the deluxe floral table runner and the velvet embroidered table runner.

Green And Grey

Minimalist weddings do not have to be left to a palette of whites and nudes. Embrace your inner nature freak with this soft and calming combination of green and grey. The industrial and man-made vibes of the grey melt perfectly into the leafy greens. Forget a plethora of blooms, this look is all about the foliage!

Having an outdoor wedding? This combination may just be what you’ve been looking for!

Stone table cloths make the perfect playground for all the leaves your heart could possibly desire! Arrange along the center of the table and dot candles in amongst to keep it looking polished.

Get The Look

If leaves aren’t your thing, switch them for a green table runner. The jacquard floral table runner has a natural vibe and won’t set off hay fever in any of your guests!

If you’re not wanting your bridesmaids to be matchy-matchy, dresses in different shades of green and emerald look fabulous together.

The third incredible addition to this magical palette? Rose gold. Pretty, yet still Scandinavian and industrial, rose gold looks fabulous in the forms of terrariums, silverware and candle holders.

Turquoise And Purple

It doesn’t get much glamorous than this color combination! Inspired by the dramatic, yet stunning colors of the peacock, less is never more when it comes to this color scheme!

Add feathers, embroidery and embellishments to give this color combination an air of exotic lands far far away!

A mish-mash of embellished pretties, flowers and textures, who knew that something so overdone could look so well put together? Keep the majority of the table as bare wood to stop it looking too much like one of Honey Boo Boo’s costumes!

Get The Look

This one is all about a combination of peacock tones! Our exotic oriental table runner is as close to peacock as decor gets!

If you thought that white was romantic, what about the colors of roses and Tiffany jewellery boxes? Yep, we thought so!

Inside Chris Hemsworth’s Byron Bay Beach-side Home

When it comes to celebrities, there is only a rare handful that both you and your other half admire. Gushes about certain celebrities are often met with a huff-puff and an eye roll by our men, but there are some celebs that our other halves can actually handle. Chris Hemsworth is totally one of them! For men, Thor= total goals! And as for us ladies, whats not to, ahem, enjoy about Chris Hemsworth?

Today, I am taking a break from oogling the hunky Chris Hemsworth himself, and am instead drooling over his new beach side abode. Having recently relocated to the hipster surf town with his wife, Elsa Pataky, and their three children, from Malibu, Chris has wasted no time transforming his new $7 million home into a bohemian beach palace!

With a slightly rustic vibe, bohemian decor and those sea views, I’m literally about to pack my bags and head to Byron Bay! But before I get ahead of myself, let’s take a closer look behind the closed doors of this hotties home and see how we can recreate this look in our own home. After all, if we can’t have Chris Hemsworth, at least we can have his decor style!

This rustic decor looks like it could easily be in a modern Moroccan apartment, but that glimpse of aqua surf could only be in Australia! The high-shine woodwork is a beautiful contrast to the more undone elements of this semi-outdoor room. Color is added through the pops of vibrant crimson in the seating. Though red and stripes combined would normally equate to nautical, the rainbow of colors in this sofa and the satin-like texture gives it more of a bohemian vibe.

Get The Look

Dot your sofa with our vibrantly printed pillow covers for the perfect balance of nautical and bohemian.

Solid geometric pillow cover

Floral embroidered pillow cover

Loving the striped effect of this sofa? Simply cover your sofa’s back cushion with our stripe scarf for an almost identical look.

Alternatively, the Arabian velvet table runner would really give your sofa some boho edge! This hippyish design is so Byron Bay!

Hows this for feng shui friendly? This naturally-lit living room contains so much Vitamin D, that you are practically outside! Adhering to the ancient practice of feng shui, the sofas are placed along the wall. Although the beige-y tone may seem a little dated, it’s brought truly into the modern bohemian trend with striped and floral cushions. The Moroccan inspired rug adheres to the shabby boho vibe perfectly, whilst the fresh bouquets of tropical blooms keep it looking fresh and polished.

Get The Look

This hand painted table runner would make a perfect addition to any table for a little rustic boho injection. Use it as a rug too for a double whammy!

Striped and floral cushions are the perfect way to uplift a dowdy, old Sofa; Hemsworth style!

If you’re an early riser, I can’t imagine a more perfect bedroom for you! Just image those sunrises over the sea! Honeycomb wooden flooring and furniture contrast beautiful with terracotta beams and window panels. Once again, all color comes from the decor. This vibrant, checked duvet cover is cute, timeless and summery. And is that another Moroccan style rug we see there peeping in the corner?

Get The Look

With metallic hues and an oh-so-boho print, this exotic oriental table runner would make a perfect rug or table runner on a wooden floor or table.

If your wooden surfaces are a looking a little worse for wear, pop on a shimmering spiral place mat and guests will be none the wiser!

This balcony is literally the size of our living room! Despite its largeness, the Hemsworth’s have kept it pretty minimal with a few chairs and some potted plants. I guess that with a view like that, you’d want to enjoy it!

Red is the perfect pal for your wooden balcony. Dot your outdoor chairs with some of our red cushions for a warming and exotic look.

10 Reasons We Want To Be Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid= the model of the moment. If you don’t believe me, turn to Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld, who recently dubbed her ‘class president’ of the current flock of supermodel starlets!

If you thought her 5 + million instagram followers and bucket loads of high end campaigns were enough to have you totally team Gigi, there’s a plethora of other reasons why Gigi Hadid is our total girl crush at the moment!

Scroll down for 10 envy-inducing reasons that make us want to magically transform into Gigi Hadid…

10. Her ‘it’ Gang

What do beautiful and famous people do in their spare time? Hang around with equally beautiful and famous people of course! Then, they post it on social media for us mere mortals to oogle at and go green over! **Gigi, you have succeeded**

gigi-hadid-friendship-group

(Photo Source: eonline.com)

Gigi’s regular crew includes Taylor Swift and her infamous girl gang. Gigi even joined Taylor on stage in front of thousands of fans in Detroit during her ‘1989’ tour. As for the above photo, I want to get my girls together and jump with matching towels ASAP!

gigi-kendall-hailie

But the trio we’d really like to be part of? The it-girl-model squad! Between them Hailey Baldwin, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid walk in hundreds of shows and are often seen hanging together in the front row. THIS is squad goals!

9. Going ‘Vogue Official’

While most of us let our not-so-significant friends know about our new beau with a (slightly cringey) Facebook status, Gigi announced her relationship with Zayn Malik through this Vogue shoot, shot by non other than Mario Testino.

I guess Facebook official is so 2009…

gigi1

Goals!

As if bagging total hottie Zayn Malik isn’t enough, Gigi then pulls him in for a cheeky kiss in this totally perfect gingham look. Me? Jealous! Never!

gigi2

Goals!!!

If me and my other half tried this I’d probably end up fractured. Nonetheless, this upside down, Vintage-y shot is totally adorable!

GOALS!!!

8. She’s An Advocate For Body Image

(Photo Source: theblondesalad.com)

Ok, so as far as the whole world is concerned, Gigi is one heck of a skinny minnie! I mean, seriously, she is a teeny size US4! But in the world of modelling, her curves have landed her a whole load of negative comments. Fellow models, industry experts and the general public alike, have put her success in modelling down to her ‘Beverly Hills Housewives’ stardom, ‘it girl’ status and rapidly growing social media following.

Fellow Victoria’s Secret model Blanca Padilla went even further stating; ‘if it was me with your same measurements going to a casting they would send me home to lose weight… Well, then, why do they love you? Maybe your millions of followers on Instagram might have something to do with it.’ Oh no you didn’t

What ever happened to women supporting women?

Despite admitting that she ‘used to cry when agencies told her to be thinner’, Gigi solidified her status as #TeamBodyPositive with an open letter on Instagram hitting back at critics:

‘Yes, I have boobs. I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. I’m fitting into sample sizes. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body.’

Well, I know which lady would convince me and my curves to buy a garment! Gigi; we salute your curves!

Get The Look

To add a quick and easy tropical edge to your swimsuit look, use the tropical floral scarf as a beach cover up or sarong.

7. Her Slaying Street Style

I have to admit that I have never seen a photo of Gigi that put a horrific expression on my face and made me think ‘oh my gosh, what on earth is she wearing?’ Most on the contrary to past ‘it girls’ and their less-than-classy fashion choices (**cough** Paris Hilton), Gigi always manages to look classy, cool, on-trend and oh-so-effortless!

Double denim is one of Spring-Summer’s must have looks and Gigi’s look is totally on fleek! She combines a distressed denim shirt and slim fit jeans with polished brogues and a vibrant red scarf. Fashionistas take note: mixing denim washes is the easiest way to nail this trend!

Get The Look

Give your double denim combo a bit of pizazz with our exotic silk scarf. On trend, colorful and boho, Gigi would certainly approve!

 

6. THIS Is Where She Grew Up

Did you ever watch MTV’s ‘Cribs’? Well, Gigi’s childhood Malibu home is about to put all those naughties rappers to shame… (Sorry Ja Rule and friends)

gigi-hadid-house

Isn’t this the definition of classic elegance? Add a timeless, airy living room, lit by natural light, to those views and you’re talking paradise!

Get The Look

Grey jacquard and damask prints are always classy and timeless. Add some Hadid into your home with our jacquard print pieces:

A cosy, outdoor living room  meshes seamlessly into an aqua infinity pool and an outdoor fire. Bliss. I adore how the home is decorated in such warm and homely neutral tones. Stone, wood and marble make this decor truly stand the test of time.

On-trend details are added through bohemian print cushions and bright bouquets.

Get The Look

If we can’t have the infinity pool, at least we can copy the cushions! Combine the exotic oriental pillow covers in ocean blue and silver for this modern Malibu vibe.

5. She ROCKS Every Shoot

Gigi is one heck of a model! We only have to open the latest copy of our fave glossy to see her doing her thing in editorial shoots and campaigns alike. Hey Gigi: How do we perfect that sexy, pouty, open mouth thing?

Cowgirl meets boho. This shot makes us want to leave the normcore trend far in the past and go completely maximalist! Fringe, prints, colors, accessories… we’ll take it all!

Hows this for killer curves? Gigi is flaunting what her momma gave her in this S Moda shoot. Combine a classic leather skirt with a sauce red shirt and retro lippie to be the hottest cow girl in town!

Get The Look

The red boho scarf inevitably makes both of these looks! Style your floral paisley silk scarf around your neck or over one shoulder to steal her style.

4. #HairEnvy

If there was some sort of hashtag dictionary, the phrases #hairenvy and #hairgoals should be accompanied by photos of Miss Hadid.

Exhibit A: Calvin Harris’s ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ music video. Just mute it, and it seems like some sort of high-end hair ad!
