Earlier this month; to kick start our fashion week and to immerse ourselves in all things style. In-spire LS headed down to London’s Kensington Olympia to feast our eyes on the hundreds of exhibitors and catwalk shows taking place at this year’s LondonEdge; a fashion show with a difference.
The average Brit consumes 140 teaspoons of sugar every week. That’s 590 grams a week, in other words over half a bag of sugar. This figure is 100g more than the maximum 490g a week suggested for men (70g daily) and 140g more than the 350g allowed for women (50g daily).
Curing your sugar addiction may seem overwhelming and dull, like exiling a source of enjoyment and comfort but it is very achievable. Moreover, if you reduce your sugar intake you’ll experience:

The annual Grammy music awards took place on Sunday 8th of February and once again did not fail to impress, stun and entertain. It was no surprise that Kanye West ranted on stage upon hearing the music artist Beck had won ‘ Album of The Year’. It was also no surprise that Sam Smith literally wiped the boards with his album ‘In The Lonely Hour’ and standout single ‘Stay With Me’. What was surprising however was who stepped it up in the style stakes. Some surprised me more than others but it wouldn’t be #FashionInspired if I didn’t compile my list of the BEST DRESSED! Do you agree with my choices.
Ariana Grande in Versace
I’m not particularly a fan of Ariana Grande or her music, but for some reason I do like this look. This simple yet effective sweeping dress clung to her petite figure in all the right places.
Kim Kardashian-West in Paul Gaultier
I saw it and I have to admit; I was instantly in love. Perhaps a little ‘glittery’ or what I would describe as a ‘Christmas decoration’ in part. There is no better time to be flamboyant and over the top than on the red carpet at an awards ceremony. Mrs Kardashian West oozes sex appeal; not only was her make-up flawless but her accessories and shorter hair styles sealed the deal. Stunning.
Chrissy Tiegen in Pucci
What is there not to love about this white ensemble modeled by John Legend’s other half model Chrissy Tiegen. I fell for her hook line and sinker after watching her in Legend’s ‘All Of Me’ video. I have a thing for the shade white and love the cut out swirling feature throughout the dress. The wavey locks also compliment the look; though I feel if she wore her hair up it would have looked even more amazing.
Nicki Minaj in Tom Ford
Can Nicki Minaj do no wrong? Having dropped the ‘barbie’ look and reverting back to her ‘own version’ of natural Nicki looks more classy than ever. I always feel that black is a safe option; yet the intricate beading and tassel features of this dress ensures Miss Minaj stands out; for all the right reasons. The side sweep hair and silver accessories really finalise the look. Timeless chic.
Taylor Swift in Elie Saab
This high-low gown in the colour Teal is my standout gown of the awards. A brave colour to rock on the red carpet, Taylor ticks all the boxes and is not only classy, sexy and on trend but too cool for school too. I also really liked the way she did a colour clash with the contrasting fuchsia open toe sandals.
Beyonce in Proenza Schouler
Understated but classic nonetheless. Beyonce shimmered in this black custom made gown with the plunging neckline. I had grown used to seeing Beyonce with shorter locks but am equally glad to see the flowing locks have a made a return. Beyonce completed her look with long chandelier earrings and a gorgeous silver ring.
