Style crushin’ : Instagram fashionista Andy Csinger

This gal.

She’s got style, am I riiiiiight?

Andy Csinger, the mysterious fashion guru, whose stunning photographs on Instagram have got the style bloggers in a right spin.


The Insta-babe, from Slovakia, Europe, has been living in Australia for the past five years.

Her clean, minimalist outfits have definitely got a mix of European and Aussie feel about them.

According to her bio, she is studying a Bachelor of Commerce, and is specialising in Marketing. Clever AND super cool? Well jel.

Having worked with brands such as Lulu Lemon and Staple The Label, she really knows what she’s doing and has incorporated her love of travel and beauty into her profile too.

Her whole mantra “keeping it simple” can be seen in these BEAUT pics and I just can’t get enough.

These are some of my fave looks.

It’s all about tan, man

Whilst I try and get over my obsession with pink, I’m becoming equally as involved with all things tan.

I’m on the hunt for a tan suede jacket so my best friend Pinterest is helping me out and inspiring me as always. I wish I wasn’t so addicted, I might have more of a life… *ahem*

I love the whole 70s vibe and actually remember my dad having THE coolest suede bomber jacket. It sucks he got rid of it.

It all comes round again doesn’t it?

Check out my top picks for all things tan, man.

Kendall Jenner’s landed THE hottest Vogue cover and people are going cray

Kendall Jenner, sister of Kim and best friend of Cara, has just landed her first proper Vogue cover. “Proper”, because she has technically graced the cover previously, if only on a 52-page special for subscribers on models who use social media.

At long last one of the most controversial models of the moment, and someone who is probably sick to death of being told that she’s not a “real” supermodel, gets some credit for all her hard work.

Naturally, the entire Kardashian clan (and Ryan Seacrest, for some reason) were on hand to congratulate her, with the help of balloon letters, selfies and giant photos of her own face.

A little background info on the cover: Despite repeated calls from die-hard Vogue fans who believe that fash-un magazines feature only fash-un models and fash-un people living fash-un lives, the world’s best known fash-un monthly has strived to keep up with the IT models of recent years.

As a result, we’ve seen everyone from Kimye (complete with wedding dress) to Kate Upton doing their best statuesque pose on the cover. The argument is always the same; these people aren’t *real* models or artists, their very existence should appal Vogue and its high-calibre readership.

To these people, Kendall is the antithesis of everything Vogue. She shouldn’t be anywhere near the cover – let alone on the all-important September issue.

Throughout the interview, Kendall pleads to be “taken seriously” and insists that her multimillion-dollar modelling career is “not a joke or a stunt”, but the article itself send a conflicting message.

Subject matter revolves predominantly around growing up in the spotlight, her famous sisters and her dad’s sex transition. This is another thing that’s rattled the cage of Vogue fans.

Possibly writing with the aim of riling up fashion fanatics even further, Vogue published a line comparing Ken-J to Linda Evangelista, one of the most admired supermodels of all time.

Talk about rubbing salt into the wound. But then again, is it really Vogue’s fault that people are so salty over a single magazine cover? No, Kendall might not be the perfect supermodel – but she gets people talking in a way that a safe option like Edie Campbell, Gisele or (God forbid) yet ANOTHER Kate Moss cover would not.

If anyone can prove that all press is good press, it’s the Kardashian clan. And hey, at least it isn’t Kylie.

The fashion fails and trendy triumphs of Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Targaryen

Game of Thrones and Me Before You star Emilia Clarke is no stranger to bold looks and experimental fashion.

The pint-sized actress – usually sporting bleach blonde hair as our hero Daenerys Targaryen – is a huge fan of top designers, but that doesn’t always mean she gets in right in the fashion stakes.

We’ve collated 21 of her most important fashion moments and ranked them from worst to best.

21. Romantic comedy Me Before You may be a hit but this Chloe dress that she wore to the New York premiere looks like a pair of old curtains.

20. Don’t stare at the print (are they creepy faces?) of this dress for too long or you’ll go cross-eyed.

19. We fear the bottom half of this dress is still alive…

18. When an expensive designer dress just looks… well, not expensive. Sorry Oscar de la Renta.

17. Mixing textures and print clashing is big right now but this monochrome Giambattista Valli dress is all wrong.

16. These colours. Just no.

15. The jury is out on this Valentino gown.  The cape trend emerged in 2015 and while the embroidery is pretty, it’s a tad Morticia Addams.

14. Bonus points for rocking a suit on the red carpet, and an orange one isn’t easy to pull off. We like this Stella McCartney number.

13. Ladylike and timeless, there’s a touch of Kate Winslet about Emilia in this Dolce & Gabbana dress.

12. The blazer-dress, or maybe just a blazer, is the perfect length for 5ft 2″ Emilia. She teamed this Dior number beautifully with striking heels, a strong centre parting and a red lip.

11. Gorgeous red wine colour and an oversize bow, the shape of this Zac Posen gown suits Emilia perfectly.

10. A pretty Prada gown was the perfect fit for this year’s Vanity Fair Oscars party – balancing feminine and demure with a deep-v.

5. Emilie’s love of quirky styles paid off when she donned Ulyana Sergeenko lace couture. The corset top and dramatic peplum skirt made her every inch the English rose at the European Me Before You premiere.

3. Hold the phone. Has anyone ever looked more perfect in a fuchsia ball gown?

2. We’re IN LOVE with this dress. Geometric, kite-inspired and cut-out, perfectly accessorised with an eye-catching emerald ring.

1. But for the winner, we must hark back to the Emmy’s of 2012. The Chanel gown helped put Emilia on best dressed lists and reminded people that she wasn’t going anywhere. The unusual but seriously elegant white and purple dress was one to remember.
