THE WEEKEND MUSE: TOP 10 FASHION MOMENTS OF 2014

This took me ages to put together so I apologise that its going up late but as 2014 draws to a close I thought it would be nice to have a look back on some fashionable "moments" that caught my attention. These are in no particular order.

1. SOLANGE'S WEDDING

I thought I got my life from Kimyes beautiful Florence Wedding then Solange took to the TL with the most iconic wedding pictures anyone will ever take. From the Stephane Rolland jumpsuit to the wedding gown complete with matching cape to the ivory bicycles decorated with roses, Solange's union to Alan Ferguson was no ordinary wedding. Very bespoke. Their honeymoon pics in Brazil did not disappoint either.


2. KIM & NORTH FROW AT GIVENCHY

Some may consider it fashion suicide that Kimye appeared on the April cover of Vogue and most recently became the face of Balmain's spring 2015 campaign but I love Kimye and you can't deny that Kim's style has definitely evolved while being with Yeezy. Sure, maybe she should have left the baby at home but Kim and North in matching sheer lace gowns was just beautiful. Kim's make up is always gorgeous but Nori's baby docs with white laces was the cutest thing ever!


3. BOYS 2 MEN

When 1.Harry Uzoka opened the Ashish show in September at LFW my first thought was "When did that happen?" he rocked the runway with a bod that had me calling him bae for a while, aint even gonna lie (look for yourself here- Remember the Jonas brothers? I never listened to their music but always had a crush on Joe Jonas and then along came 2.Nick Jonas's Flaunt magazine shoot inspired by Mark Wahlberg's 1992 Calvin Klein underwear ad and now its like "Joe, who's Joe?" (ps I picked the tamest picture because the others he took are seriously too hot to handle). Finally who knew 3.Justin Bieber could look this good in a suit, barely recognised him.


4. LUPITA SLAYS

Every single red carpet event, magazine cover, fashion show appearance and then redefined beauty becoming Lancome's first black ambassador. She wasn't afraid be unconventional and wear bold statement pieces. She is beautiful.


5. TEAM BEARD GANG

2014 was the year of the beard. Seriously guys look hotter with a beard. Peep my man crush's below.

6. RIP OSCAR DE LA RENTA

His dresses are like a beautiful fairytale and the legendary designer with old-fashioned elegance will be truly missed.


7. RIHANNA KILLS FASHION WEEK

Badgal Riri turned up in practically nothing to accept her Fashion Icon Award earlier this year but it was her fashion week looks in NYC and Paris that had me sold. Looking forward to seeing what will come from her new position as Creative Director for Puma. 


8. PHARRELL

When he turned up to the Grammys wearing an oversized Vivienne Westwood hat I looked at him sideways but I can appreciate the level of individuality it takes to wear not one but a collection of Buffalo hats...in different colours...on more than one occasion...*sips tea*








9. SASSY HAIR

Braids, faux locs, big fro's, rainbow hair, granny chic grey. You name it women were about it this year. yaaaasssssss!

10. BLACK LIVES MATTER & I CANT BREATHE

Shiona Turini from Cosmopolitan Magazine wore the "They Have Names" Tshirt by designer Pyer Moss, to NYFW in September, a tshirt with names of those who have lost their lives at the hands of the police including the name of Eric Garner who's dying words, #ICantBreathe, went viral after his death, spurring NBA players like Lebron James to be an advocate by wearing T-shirts emblazoned with these three words. 
It takes guts to raise awareness in unusual places.

OTHER MOMENTS I LOVED:

1. Nicki Minaj in Marc Jacobs & Roberto Cavalli. Her transformation is striking.

2. The other Kardashians. They seemed to have upped their game this year...
Kylie's lips and makeup are covetable. Kendall got her life becoming a runway model, Kourtney got pregnant, again, but she does maternity wear so good and Khloe looked like jessica rabbit in this flipping amazing dress!

3. Broderick Hunter...just cause, okay that one may be personal but it was a "moment" for me lol

So that was some of my favourite moments of 2014!!! What are yours?
