Three style icons, three easy-to-achieve style tips...
David Beckham’s party at Mark’s Club in London’s Mayfair was the hottest ticket in town last night, and as you can expect, it attracted a bevy of A-list stars. Among them were Liv Tyler and new beau Dave Gardner, party girl Mary Charteris, in-demand designer Christopher Kane – and of course Victoria Beckham, Alexa Chung and Kate Moss.
It was style inspo aplenty as the three icons offered up three completely unique takes on evening dressing. From androgyny to boho and of course, 60s party girl, here’s what Kate, Alexa and Victoria wore last night. And most importantly, how you can transfer them into an everyday wardrobe…
Swapping her trademark tousled ‘do in favour of two sleek, super-tight plaits, Alexa joined the ever-growing club of A-list fans who are making plaits as the evening hair du-jour. But that wasn’t the only take-away tip from Alexa’s stand-out look. Breaking away from her tried and tested dress and chunky boots combo and completely turning it on its head, Alexa wore an off-beat embroidered Vikshenko ‘Estella’ shirt with the two bottom button undone for that elusive cool-girl charm. And then there’s the culottes-style cropped trousers showing off just the right amount of skin. Certainly unique and totally off-beat, but we love.
The theme of the evening was ‘Swinging London’ and Kate Moss couldn’t have been more perfect for it. The queen of heels who even has a pair of Christian Louboutin stilettos named in her honor made a surprising twist and arrived in flats. Patent Mary-Janes to be exact. Clearly taking her inspiration from the Saint Laurent catwalks, where mini dresses were teamed with glittery Mary-Janes and thick opaque tights, Kate of course gave the 60s trend her own spin with a sheer navy high-neck dress and added fishnet tights for a splash of that signature sassy Mossy vibe.
Following her fashion trip up-north, where she wowed in a monochrome maxi skirt and ribbed jumper, Victoria proved herself to be part of the capital’s fashion elite with an appearance at one of the most in demands parties of the week. Wearing ripped skinny jeans and a high-neck silk white shirt, the A-list designer draped a sleek mannish wool long coat over her lithe shoulders. Understated and androgynous we love. Just as much as we love that gold hardware clutch.
