14 Fashion Moments That Defined 2014

It seems like yesterday that we were counting down to 2014 with a glass of bubbly... Now 12 months, 365 days and 8,760 hours (if my math skills are correct) later we are donning our glitzy dresses and popping bottles to welcome 2015. This year went by far too fast. But although the year seemed about the same length as Paris Hilton's music career, the amount of memorable moments in the fashion industry was far and plenty. Here's the 14 moments in fashion that defined 2014:

If anything has influenced what we have worn in 2014, it has to be street style! From on the streets at fashion week, to fashion bloggers and girls next door, what we wear is determined by each other more then ever!

What's your favourite fashion moment of 2014?


  1. That Oscar selfie picture is obsiously bomb! Also, the street style from the fashion week is very influential!

    1. Haha I SO wish I was in the Oscar selfie! xx

  5. Brilliant post! xx

  6. Great post! Loved reading it!


  7. This is an awesome post! I love the rise of the fashion blogger and street style..it only make sense that we the consumers start to influence fashion and style as much as it has influenced us! Have a great New Years Eve doll!


    1. Thanks hun! Yeah I love it too, it's a lot more relatable to other women too xx

  8. How does Lupita do it? She always looks flawless and had to be my favorite break out star. Also, I was really disappointed with the Moschino collection (it seems really rude to those who actually wear those uniforms to pardoy them for a couture collection they can't afford) but I definitely have to agree with your sentiments towards Oscar de la Renta and the end of his era.

    Another Beautiful Thing

    1. Lupita is so stunning! Ah... I see what you mean, I never looked at it in that way, but now that you mention it, its almost making fun of the working class xx

  9. Great post. I love Lupita's style. Happy happy New Year!
