Niki Pilkington

25 Sep

This is a name you might not have heard of, but you should get used to it because Niki Pilkington is a super-talented, super-stylish, welsh fashion illustrator. She works between her studios in North Wales and London and has drawn beautiful, fashionable pictures of clothes and girls for Topshop, Dolce and Gabbanna, Ted Baker, MTV, fashion magazines and more. Every girl should be jealous of Niki, especially as she has met famous people to draw their children’s shoes, she has been interviewed often by magazines and websites, she’s been to London Fashion Week and seen some models on the catwalk. There’s no denying it; her job is so cool! To know more about her and to see some of her work, head to Nikipilkington.com or Nikipilkington.blogspot.com. She even has bags, diaries and notebooks of her work on them on sale on the net! The drawings below are only some of her many pictures of girls wearing pretty clothes, and she adds writing to the images, like welsh sayings and idioms. Awesome!

      

     

     

 

Look Like Audrey Hepburn

26 Aug

I am literally in love with Audrey Hepburn! She is my icon and inspiration! She was a very beautiful, elegant lady who starred in many famous films, including my favourite; Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Firstly, to copy her classical style, you need to pull your hair into an updo like hers. A bun will do, so buy a doughnut from Primark for a £1, but leave your fringe out on your forehead. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t got a fringe! Next get a sleeveless black dress like this one from House of Fraser for only £22. I really like the white lace collar on it, but if you find a plain one, make sure to wear a pearl necklace with it. Pair the dress with simple black heels like these from Zalando for £50 and some pearl earrings which are available anywhere. Lastly, add a pair of big, black sunglasses for £6.99 from Mango and you’re ready to go!
