The Oscars Red Carpet – Our Favourite Looks

February 23rd, 2015 4:11 pm


The 87th Oscars ceremony happened last night in the USA, and if you’re anything like us you were dying to see what the stars wore on the red carpet.  Known for being the biggest night of the year for red carpet dressing, we’ve picked our favourite looks that we couldn’t help but love. We loved how quirky and fun these looks were, especially J-LO’s stunning embellished Elie Saab Couture dress. Emma Stone also looked ravishing in a long-sleeve, chartreuse custom Elie Saab gown. We love the lime green colour against her bright orange lipstick. Recently announcing her pregnancy, Sophie Hunter (pictured with her husband Benedict Cumberbatch) opted for a red floor-skimming silk number by Lanvin, which was daringly done up at either side by safety pins. Margot Robbie, the breakout star of “The Wolf of Wall Street,” looked incredible in a plunging femme fatale look by Saint Laurent. And we can’t forget the males this season. Will.I.Am opted for a laid back look whilst trying to be sophisticated, for the carpet this year. Always being one step ahead, Will paired a tux jacket with a multi colour striped top, turned up trousers and smart trainers. See all of our favourite looks looks below.




Grammy Awards Fashion round up

February 9th, 2015 3:42 pm


No awards ceremony is complete without a fashion round up, and The 57th Grammy Awards ceremony is no exception. The stars did not disappoint on Sunday evening, showing ample cleavage, leg and style (with a few exceptions.)

Here are some looks we spotted and simply loved.

Black is the new black

The red carpet at this ceremony went a shade of black, with few female attendees daring to wear any colour at all. Each item had its own little quirk and we loved the curves on display in each look.

Beyonce led the way in her custom dress by Proenza Schouler. The deep V neck line and long sleeves complement each other perfectly. She sure looks bootylicious in this dress.

Nicki Minaj dressed in Tom Ford. The dress showed ample cleavage and curves. It was like this dress was made for her.

Meghan Trainor was ‘all about that lace’ in a sheer, off-the-shoulder Galia Lahav gown. We love how this dress accentuates her figure and how she’s revealed yet concealed her shape in this sheer fabric.

Jessie J who regularly chooses casual and unusual attire, wowed in a demure black dress. Showing off plenty of skin in this completely sheer gown.

Gwen Stefani went for a jumpsuit with a twist wearing Atelier Versace. We love the unusual detailing at the front of it.

Straight off the catwalk

Kim Kardashian West, dressed in Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture. This dress instantly caught everyone’s attention, from the glistening material, the low v neck finish opening to the high v front slit, the embellished shoulders and pocket detailing.  We could go on forever. Wow factor as always from Kim.

Rihanna was dressed in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture. Some have disagreed and stated they in fact hate this look, but we think anything Rihanna wears she can pull off. This pink number is a winner in our eyes.

Katy Perry wore her look straight off the catwalk for Zuhair Murad Haute Couture. Glistening like a rock star, this look came straight off the back of her amazing Super Bowl half time show costumes from Jeremey Scott. Katy you’re a style firework.

Tux luxe

The men weren’t the only ones that rocked the tux this awards season with Anna Kendrick, in Band of Outsiders wowing the crowd in this low cut suit. Such a simple yet eye catching look. We’re envious here at the office.

Sia and her sidekick Maddie made a statement with their matching look and wigs reminiscent of the styles seen on Rick Owens’ runway.




White Label Spring Summer 15 is Here

February 6th, 2015 4:24 pm


Anna takes us to all four corners of the Earth with her White Label collection for Spring Summer 2015. Appropriately named Wanderlust, let this collection help you escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world as Anna draws global inspiration from the traditional, the cultural and the vintage. We have luscious leopard prints, a cultural henna design, our exclusive Oli print and many more that adorn beautiful silks and jerseys in flattering styles.

The Anna Scholz team took off to sunny Majorca for a holiday with twist. Whilst enjoying the sunshine they shot the SS15 campaign, which I’m sure you’ll agree, looked amazing.  Our model , the lovely Gina looked fantastic in all of the outfits and we couldn’t be happier with the brochure images that were taken by Mindy Coe which you can view here.

We styled the shoot with metallic transfer tattoos by Divine Ink, which complimented the prints and styles perfectly. Cliff and his wife Sharon joined the team and everyone was thankful for her amazing cooking throughout the shoot, including the delicious stuffed peppers. Just looking at the picture makes everyone hungry in the office. Of course the holiday was all work and very little play, but we’re sure you’ll agree the images and collection look great. It certainly makes us want to travel away for the sunshine and head to the beach.

You can check out more images of their time in Majorca, by checking out the behind the scenes shots here

Keep your eyes peeled as we will be releasing Black label previews next week, but for now you can shop White Label online here.

Let us know where you are heading on holidays to and show off your Anna Scholz outfits in the sun using the hashtag #ASholidayoutfits on your Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. and we’ll share our favourites
