FASHION HOST LOUISE ROE SHOWCASES HER STYLE IN THE NEW CLOSET CONFESSIONS VIDEO FROM BLUEFLY

British TV host and fashion expert, Louise Roe, is the latest trendsetter featured in Closet Confessions, the beloved web series of leading online retailer, Bluefly. The series gives viewers an exclusive look into the closets of today’s fashion influencers. Known for hosting NBC’s Fashion Star, The Style Network’s Style Pop, ABC’s Oscar Red Carpet coverage, and MTV International’s Plain Jane as well as working as a fashion correspondent and writer, Louise has mastered edgy yet playful London style and shows off a drool-worthy closet complete with an enviable collection of shoes and accessories. She has also curated an assortment of her fashion must-haves at Bluefly’s sister site, Belle & Clive.

Louise’s eclectic style is showcased through her range of clothing, with vibrant prints and bright colors, both High Street and high designer. She says, “I’m not a designer obsessive! High/low is great.” Feminine with a bit of edge, her wardrobe is filled with colorful inspiration and unique pieces. She brings her years of reporting on celebrity fashion to her Closet Confession with red carpet anecdotes involving Mickey Rourke and Oscar dress sightings for an episode that’s hilarious and lighthearted.

But that said, her fashion advice and inspiration is no joke. She dispenses easy and useful fashion tips like a pro. After all, she did just film the fourth season of her makeover show, Plain Jane. “Hats!” She exclaims showing off bohemian chic, wide-brimmed fedoras. “I love hats. I always try to persuade the women I’m making over to wear hats, because for some reason, women are scared of [them].” But as she proves, they give even basic jeans and a tee an unexpected dose of style. Also on her must-have list? Leopard print and white pumps. “I think every chick has to have leopard print in her closet somewhere,” she says.

Brides Should Purchase Multiple Wedding Dresses: Contributing Post from Simply Bridal.com

Wearing multiple wedding dresses has become one of the biggest trends in the wedding industry. The trend has so permeated the industry that it is on the fast track to becoming standard bridal fare instead of a celebrity bridal trend. Yet, before you plunk down some serious change for two dress deposits, you should consider what comes with the territory when you decide to wear multiple dresses on your wedding day.
You Get to Dance the Night Away
Is your heart set on wearing a big, ball gown with a 27-foot train, even though it requires you to walk like a tin man? Well, have no fear because you can have your dress and wear another one too. Today’s brides have been wearing their big, beautiful gowns for the ceremony and then ditching them in favor of an easy, but still bridal, dress that allows them to move, shimmy and shake all night long.
You Become a Quick Change Artist
Your guests will be stunned when you walk into the reception in one dress, go into another room and then reappear with a completely different look. If you want to go the entire quick change route, enlist your hairstylist to create a completely different look. Now, that is really something you don’t see every day.
You Will Have a Bigger Headache than Most Brides
Finding your dream dress is stressful in itself, but trying to find two (or possibly three or more) dresses can give you cause to self-destruct. Just think, you have all of the dress one dress requires and then get to multiply it by how many dresses you want to wear. If you’re prone to stress, then this trend may not be right for you.
…and Unfortunately Your Wallet Becomes Smaller
All you need to do is walk into a bridal boutique to remind yourself just how much getting married costs. Dresses can be quite expensive, but if your wallet can handle it, go for it.
The trend of wearing multiple dresses is quite fun, but it also a little time-consuming and more stressful than usual. Although we love seeing brides’ reception dresses, we understand the pleasure and pain that brides must endure if they want to indulge in the trend. So, how many dresses will you be wearing?
