Best looks from the Cannes Film Festival

810 (2)

The Cannes red carpet is as much about the fashion as it is the films themselves. Celebrities far and wide gather in the French town and really pull out the big guns when it comes to their looks for the week.

For those of us who weren’t wearing designer Gucci gowns as we watched films in the French Riviera, don’t worry, there’s still some enjoyment to be had. Take a look at some of our favourite people strutting their stuff in the best luxury designer pieces this past week.

How to style the best from the MBFWA runways


MBFWA – don’t ask me what it stands for – but for those interested in Australian fashion, it’s the best week of the year. Runway shows, the best designers and of course street style are all the reasons why us fashion-obsessed ladies (and gentlemen) love to get behind the event.

For those who couldn’t make it to Sydney last week, myself included, we can still get our fashion fix through a number of online – whether that’s from fashion bloggers or esteemed fashion publications. So my dear readers, feast your eyes on S+P’s picks from fashion week and a little advice on how to stuff these looks into your autumn wardrobes.

Castings 101

Wise words from S+P’s very own model Booker



Kyah Parrott is our newest addition to the Skin+Pepper team as our talented model Booker . Having worked as a model scout and creative director in the Australian fashion industry, she’s no stranger to a casting call.

To welcome this gorgeous girl into the agency, we thought it was fitting that she offer some of her insights into what makes for a good casting (and perhaps a not so good one). Budding models it’s time to take some notes – you don’t want to miss out on these insider tips.

The brand of clothing that is to dye for


Patagonia is a brand that’s quietly killing it in the way of innovative fashion. This year, its clothing line topped the list in the Ethical Fashion Report, for their efforts in minimising the risks of forced labour, child labour and exploitation through its supply chains. Seriously well done to Patagonia for this feat.

But the brand isn’t stopping there. It’s now looking at how best they can improve their sustainability in the fashion industry. And so the Clean Color Collection has been launched. This line features garments for both men and women coloured with all-natural dyes.

It’s a business model we can all feel good about splurging on with all garments made from high quality linen material. Casual luxury is a guarantee in these quirky, earthy garments. Something tells me this isn’t the last we’ll hear of the up and coming brand.  (more…)

The best of MET Gala 2017


It’s arguably the biggest fashion event of the year, none other than the MET Gala. For a measly $25,000 a head, the hottest celebrities can hit the red carpet to show off their most creative designer looks. The theme was Comme des Garcons, avant-garde or whatever the hell you want to wear frills and outfit and all.

I suppose the best part of this event is that anything goes. Everyone’s style is so different and everyone interprets the theme differently. Sure the high-end designers are the ones influencing a lot of the celebrity style, but everyone gives the looks their own twists. Formal, casual or just downright absurd, there’s no outfit unfit for the annual MET Gala.

Last week all the brides-to-be had their eyes on the designer runways at Bridal Fashion Week. But it wasn’t just those getting hitched that could appreciate the glamorous white frocks. We all love to swoon over the dresses we could only afford in our wildest dreams, but it’s not all tulle and trains either. Bridal fashion can inspire us all to add a little white to our everyday wardrobes. Here’s five lessons we learned from the runways.

Naomi Campbell x DIESEL for Fashion For Relief


There are some fashion icons we just can’t get enough of and Naomi Campbell is one of them. She’s a supermodel that has been an inspiration to so many other women throughout her long career and she’s the most goddamn gorgeous 46 year old we’ve ever seen.

But there’s more reason to love her than just the good looks. Naomi has been raising money for various charitable causes through her very own charity Fashion For Relief. Her most recent project is a collaboration with much-loved fashion brand Diesel, and she’s turning to the plight of children.

The Fashion Revolution


It’s a fashion revolution and it’s one we should all be apart of. In the coming week, we’re looking forward to celebrating Fashion Revolution Week and for those of you who wear clothes (so pretty much everyone), this is a movement you need to get behind.

Four years ago, over 1,100 people were killed and over 2500 injured in the collapse of the Rana Plaza in Bangladesh. This complex comprised of four factories that provide garments for a number of global fast fashion chains. It was one of the first major events to shed light on the exploitation and inequality within the industry. And so the revolution was born.

Festival style at this year’s Coachella


For the fashion lovers of the world, Coachella is as much about the clothes as it is the lineup of music artists. This music festival is perhaps the biggest in the world and celebrities near and far gather to show off just how stylishly crazy they can be.

For anyone who couldn’t make it to the festival of the year, I feel you. There was some serious style-envy on my part and the only solace was scrolling through my social feeds liking all the pictures of amazing outfits I could find.
