Three is the magic number! The amazing Poppy Delevingne,Alex Chung and Laura Bailey all look absolutely stunning with a spring summer glow as they graced the cover of the latest issue of Net-a-Porter's The Edit Online. The trio who are ambassadors of the British Fashion Council talked favourite designers, fashion style, inspiration and fashion picks whilst modelling some of this season's must-haves available at Net-a-Porter. Speaking passionately about her love of British fashion Poppy said: "It's authentic, effortless and kooky in the most inventive way."
All three ladies are pictured below in Erdem SS'13 collection.
Last night the British Fashion Awards took place in London celebrating some of the biggest names in the industry.

Other winners included Kim Jones as Menswear Designer of the Year, Nicholas Kirkwood for his gorgeous accessories and Professor Louise Wilson OBE won the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator. Click through to see photos of the winners along with other stars of the red carpet including Princess Beatrice, a heavily pregnant Lily Allen, Jourdan Dunn and Salma Hayek.
Ballet pumps have long dominated the flat footwear department, but not anymore! This season, the slipper is now the reigning King of flat shoes and we couldn't be more thrilled. There already a big hit with cool celebrities like Alexa Chung, Lena Dunham and Sienna Miller. There are so many great slippers available right now for a range of budgets including this calf hair pair (£200) by Avec Moderation. We also love this Gaga style by French Sole and Boohoo's cat slippers (£18). You can shop more below.
Cool girls Alexa Chung and Emma Stone attended the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards last night. They were both wrapped up warm in blue coats over their party dresses. There are so many great coats available right now from bright blue shades like this Stella McCartney tailored wool coat (£1,008) or Maison Scotch's version (£192), to darker blues like Topshop's navy boyfriend coat (£150). You can shop more blue coats below.
When we shared this ensemble from the Chanel SS13 show on Facebook, you guys absolutely loved it! It's such an usual handbag design by Karl Lagerfeld that it really caught the attention of the press and the public (with mixed reactions). Earlier this week, Alexa Chung co-hosted US chatshow Anderson Live and she was gifted a personalised version of the bag. We love the classic Chanel 2.55 handbag, but we're not sure about this new design. Do you think you could rock the hula hoop bag?
Alexa Chung stars on the cover of Numero Tokyo this month and used the occasion to announce her latest plans. When asked about designing her own clothing line she cooly replied, "Yes, I’m definitely going to do that. I’m looking into it right now." Alexa has long been a style icon for girls around the world and her style has been copied across the globe so it's no surprised that she's trying her hand at design. She has previously created a collection with US retailer Madewell, but it sounds like her latest design endeavour will be more independent. She added, "I’ve got nothing to lose, it’s a bit of fun. In this current era of celebrity no one believes you actually design the stuff anyway, even though I sketch everything myself. So if it sucks I can say I had nothing to do with it, and if it’s really good I can say ‘Here are the drawings, it’s all my own work!"
We can't wait to see what she designs. Are you interested in a clothing line designed by Alexa? See below to shop pieces inspired by the model turned presenter turned designer!
Alexa Chung hit the red carpet in New York earlier this week rocking a polka dot blouse with high waisted shorts. We love the effortless feel of this look and it's so easy to recreate. She accessorised with court heels to show off her model pins. There are lots of polka dot shirts available now including this Gérard Darel version (£160). You can shop more similar items below.
Last night the Elle Style Awards took place in London bringing together some of the coolest girls in fashion. Alexa Chung hosted the event in her signature androgynous style. Mary Katrantzou won the NEXT Young Designer of the Year award whilst Acne took home the Contemporary Brand of the Year award. Jonathan Saunders bagged the big prize of the night as he was named British Designer of the Year and Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen won International Designer of the Year. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was also having a great night as she was named Style Icon of the year! Click through to see who else was on the red carpet and to find out what they were wearing.
