Recently Olivia Palermo, Blake Lively and Kate Bosworth were all photographed wearing black denim dungarees as they went about their glamorous lives – on the red carpet, in the airport and being interviewed. They all paired the work-wear with white tops and a formal shoe, giving this traditionally casual item a very modern, very dressed-up feeling. And it was this that made me think that it was time to embrace this trend. Of course it’s tricky, because dungarees have always been kids’ wear. They are designed to cover up the wee nippers as they play in the grass and fields and get filthy. This is definitely not the intention for us grown ups. Read all about how to wear them as an adult here on Women24.

ELLE but also note that a couple of these dresses are South African designed by Kisua, selling in the US. This story really couldn't get better for me.

ell. He is only 29 so maybe he will grow up. But personally what I liked most was that his real name is Karim Kharbouch - that's two K's people. Perfect for a Kardashian, right? Hahahaha. Love it.

The reason why this is notable, over everyone else, is that she is also a politician. And a democrat. My pretty standard belief about these things is that they are all lying to a greater or lesser extent. But not my friend. She plays the game, but only enough to effect change and make a difference for people. This is about the most admirable quality about her.
Lindiwe, I didn't make you a video, because that's not what I do. I write. And this is my wish for you.
Bon voyage. Godspeed.

One of the quickest ways to stay looking relevant and modern as we age, is to keep in style. Contemporary style right now dictates that you put away your bootleg jeans and embrace the skinny jean. But many of you are resisting because you think you can’t wear them. Well I am here to tell you that “too old” and “too big” are no longer excuses to stay trapped in outdated styles. You can – and should – be wearing skinny jeans this winter. I explain it all here on Women24.

Many fashion authorities believe that the Oscars offers the best of red carpet fashion. Others – the edgier ones – think that the annual Met Gala is the benchmark of red carpet fashion. I disagree with all of them. I think that the two weeks of film festival held every year in May in Cannes is hands-down the red carpet winning occasion. Read my justification here on Women24.

Victoria Beckham is the ultimate style icon. She is designer, muse and customer of her own creations. There is no one as high profile a celebrity who is also a recognised, respected and awarded designer. And there is no one better than her to show off her own clothes. But even her most devoted fan (me) will acknowledge that an average human woman (definitely me) would find it tricky to pull off her very specific, streamlined and elegant style. It’s a challenge, for sure. But I am up to the challenge and can definitely share my three top tips for getting VB’s style here on Women24.

We all know by now that black and white is the biggest trend that any of us has ever experienced in fashion. Everyone can - and is - wearing it. You can take the trend from a red carpet gown all the way through to a casual weekend look with a simple black and white colour combination. I explain all here at Women24.
A good fashion editor or stylist can take a very ordinary piece of clothing and make it look amazing, fresh and different to how anyone else is wearing it. You may think it is magic, but actually all it is, is a bit of push and pull. Let me explain here on Women24.
