This Weeks F.W.T takeover is by Hannah Brimson, Hannah has many years experience within the Fashion industry and is now the fashion and beauty writer for Heat magazine. GMD asked Hannah to pick her current GMD crushes and answer a few of our style questions.. Enjoy
Red carpet glam at it’s very best, this liquid metallic gown is a big statement but totally worth it if you’ve been invited to a fancy pants party. I’d team it with ’20s waves, Art Deco earrings and skyscraper heels, then hang around waiting for Ryan Gosling to approach (he might just want to know where the loo is but at least you have an in).
This dress makes me want to sing Lady In Red (but don’t worry, I won’t). The little buttons and peekaboo lace are really cute but need a bit of toughening up – hello leopard heels and studded leather! I’d wear a ’90s poker-straight ponytail and lots of grungy eyeliner to make it a bit rockier.
The midi is a really flattering length on virtually everyone, and the combo of lace and bold mono stripes make this dress easy to get away with at summer weddings or parties. You could even get away with fancy flats if you’re not a heel-wearer. I would do the clash with a pretty floral blazer, a ’60s bouff and pastel extras
Zebra print + a bright biker + bejewelled sandals + a glitter box clutch = a winning Palermo-inspired party look. This frock is super versatile though – nude courts and a minimal clutch would look just as good.
GMD’s Q&A with Hannah
How would you describe your style in one word?
What is the one item of clothing you could not live without?
My Sophia Webster Amma heels. They cost me a month’s rent but they look and feel like a carnival on my feet. They’re the grown-up equivalent of those plastic princess shoes you had when you were five.
Who is your style icon?
Poppy Delevingne is a goddess. From her flawless hair and make-up to the nail polish on her little toe, she seems so polished yet effortlessly cool. She always looks really chic but adds quirky little touches which I love.
