Who do you consider to be your role model?

This prompt by WordPress was too interesting to ignore. I find that having a role model is a strange thing – as far as I know, none of my close friends have any. Then again, they are not as into pop culture and entertainment as much as I am. The truth is, ever since I was a little girl, I had a tendency to get obsessed with people I liked. My friend and I used to make our parents call us by whatever name my favourite movie character of the month was called, and we would attempt to dress like them on a daily basis, whilst I (in secret because I must have known this behaviour was a little odd) would spend hours thinking about their personal traits and how I could go about adopting them.

I have always felt that it is a dissatisfaction with oneself that spurs a need for a role model. However, as I am much older and much wiser now, I think role models can certainly have a positive influence on your life, and I know that I for one will never go without having one. Currently, I would say I have many. My role model for singing? Lea Michele. My role model for life? Kate Winslet and Troian Bellisario. My role model for fashion? Rachel Bilson. People I will forever admire with all my heart? Emily Bronte and J.K. Rowling.

It’s interesting how these role models come and go, and even more interesting for me to ponder why these different people, who have done different things and come from different backgrounds all have well, ME, in common. Who are your role models and why? I’d like to read many peoples posts as possible on this topic!

Get the Red Carpet Look (For Less!)

The MTV Movie Awards may have come and gone, but the fashion lives on… I was inspired by some of my favourite celeb looks this year, and decided that everybody should be able to emulate a look they like without putting too much strain on their wallet. Of course we all dream of someday being the proud owners of a real Balmain mini skirt like the one that Mila Kunis rocked this year, but until then, I think it’s important to responsibly concede that we can still create looks of our own that are inspired by high fashion (but for a much lesser cost!)

Product Info (clockwise): top, clutch, top, shoes, skirt, skirt

Starting off with the lovely Mila Kunis, I’ve gathered two combinations (at varying price ranges) inspired by Mila’s look at the MTV Awards. I personally loved how Mila opted for a skirt and top combo rather than a typical awards dress, it truly makes the look perfect for a number of occasions rather than being something you could only wear once to a fancy event.

Product Info: dress, bracelet, earrings, shoes

Okay, confession time. Ever since I was little, I have been obsessed with white. It used to drive my mother crazy when she would take me to a store and tell me to pick out flowers from a huge selection of beautiful colours, and I would come back with white ones. So it’s no surprise that I find something about wearing white very alluring and elegant. Emma’s look here is simple: white and silver. However, what is really awesome about it is that you can play it up if you wish, especially through use of jewellery (wear as much of it as you want, everything else is simple enough!)

I must admit I had a little trouble with this outfit. I tried really hard to determine (rather desperately) whether Miss Lively was wearing any earrings or necklace or any form of jewellery other than her bracelet which would give me something else to add to the above image. Nonetheless, what I love most about this outfit is the boldness of the two colours (colour blocking is so in right now), as well as the shoes. Plum coloured heels? They’re a gorgeous colour, I know I could spice up a lot of outfits if I had a pair!

Last but certainly not least, Reese Witherspoon’s attire at the MTV Awards was less formal than most, and showed that she wasn’t taking the whole thing too seriously. I like that. Her green and black dress is simple and pretty, one that you could wear practically anywhere thanks to its versatility and her nude coloured heels complete the effortless look perfectly.
