Best Dressed: Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards

Katie Piper had on a blue printed jump suit with a racy lacey black shirt. She teamed it with black heels and a black purse. 

Nicole Scherzinger had on a white backless dress that was slightly revealing but still kept that elegant feel to it. She teamed it with hot pink heels.

Kimberly Walsh had on a light blue gown that was laced at the bottom and was patterned. The top part of the gown had sparkly pieces and small laced sleeves at the shoulders.

Kelly Osbourne looked chic in a silver and lilac dress that had was printed in floral all over and she matched it with silver peep-toe heels.

Heidi Range looked very glamorous in a long back mermaid gown that went out into a short train at the bottom. It had a sheer laced panel at the top part also and she teamed her dress with a silver purse.

Last night's Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards definitely was a good turn out for the fashion, they definitely stepped it up from the usual outfits they have for events in the UK and I picked my top 5 who were Katie Piper, Nicole Scherzinger, Kimberly Walsh, Kelly Osbourne and Heidi Range. My favourite of the night was between Nicole and Heidi, Nicole's was quite revealing at the back but still gave it that elegant feel and Heidi looked stunning in her black mermaid gown that went out at the bottom for a short train.

Wrapping Up For Winter - Fashion must haves!

Are you starting to feel the cold air in the mornings when heading to work and college? I definitely am, so I thought I would make a winter checklist of all the clothing I just might need during the chilly season. Not too expensive, but definitely not so cheap that my new jacket turns out to be so thin that I get drenched in the rain, I’ve tried to go for a happy medium on the prices.
I know most people now prefer online shopping, but I do like going the odd trip into town, because I can try my picks on there and then rather having them delivered to my home, hating them and having to return them, only to go through the whole cycle again. If you think I’ve missed anything from my checklist just leave a comment and I’ll add it in!

Who win's the Style War? Rita Ora Vs. Rihanna? - I Love them both!

There has been a few comments for the past year about Rita Ora ‘copying’ Rihanna’s style, music and I think just about everything in general the way some people are going on but I think it’s just the simple fact they are both so alike they have the same taste in fashion that it just ends up they wear the same stuff I know Rita is signed to the same Roc Nation record label as Rihanna, but that doesn’t mean she is in any way copying the superstar.

Rita told Rollacoaster Magazine: 'To tell you the truth I don't really care. My music's different, we sing differently, we're from different parts of the world. Plus we've seen each other lots of times and we hang out, so if people are trying to create a feud, not going to work.’

If you look at the pictures below you will see their similarities, but how often do you and your friends accidentally wear similar outfits? When you lead the same lifestyle and are of a similar age and personal taste, it’s inevitable. I think tabloids need to give the girls a rest, because both ladies are extremely talented in their own right, and both deserve to be successful, rather than being pitted against each other in a faux catfight.

Miley Cyrus's Manhattan Skyline Printed Skirt on Jay Leno

Miley Cyrus was wearing a very daring but eye-catching ensemble on Friday night when getting interviewed by Jay Leno. The singer had on a long skirt that had the Manhattan Skyline printed on it and it had cuts at the side and stopped above the ankles showing off her bright red heels, She had on a black daring bralet with her skirt which seemed to be quite revealing of her cleavage. I loved Miley's Skirt!! I am a huge fan of New York City and I just thought some people might think unusual and she might get some fashion hate, but she definitely won some points from me. My only question is where did she get it from!?
