PLL Star Style: Sasha Pieterse

Our favourite Pretty Little Liars starlet South African actress Sasha Pieterse also known as Alison Di Laurentis or A on the hit teen TV drama show is down-to-earth in real life. Sasha's Instagram account mostly features her friends and centers little around herself, proving she's not just another self-absorbed and vain Hollywood actress.

Season six of Pretty Little Liars will première on June 2 which is less than two weeks away.

Here's our favourite street style and red-carpet close-ups of the adorable, baby-faced Sasha Pieterse.

Style tip #1: A Lesson in Leather

Style tip #2: The Long and Short of It

Always pair tall boots with mini dresses for that illusion of longer, slimmer legs.

Style tip #3: Sweet Sixteen

Forget about dressing your age. It's all about mixing and matching to achieve a fine balance. One can look forever sixteen or sixty depending on the choice of outfits, hairstyling and make-up.

Sasha Pieterse wears a lovely pair of tan over-the-knee high heel boots with a pop of neon peach, keeping her make-up natural to look sweet instead of scandalous.

Flashback Friday: Sasha's R.P.M music video. 

With strong vocals and an even stronger sense of style, she looks stunning in a silver metallic quilted biker jacket and naturally fits the country music singer look.




Which is your favourite Sasha look from over the years?

MariaCarla Boscono's magnificent cowboy star shaped clip-on earrings punctuated her runway look.

Today's Flashback Friday feature is inspired by our favourite looks from the iconic Dolce and Gabbana star-studded runway collection from Fall Winter 2011 after stumbling onto an old paper bag with gold star charms.

Back in 2011, sequins adorned virtually every single item on the runway on Dolce and Gabbana's famous Miss Sicily bags, star-printed dresses, shoes and fur coats.

Midweek Inspiration: Lindsay Lohan T-shirt Dress

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

How do you make a simple grey T-shirt look awesome? Take a few style tips from Lindsay Lohan as seen out and about in London last week in a T-shirt worn as a mini dress.

Jazz up the simple T-shirt with a bright blue wool coat and pair it with simple slouchy boots to transform the casual T-shirt attire into an instantly more polished and refined look.

Lindsay's ginger tresses are messily braided as she pairs it with a pair of aviators. She's certainly had a bit of style influence from British WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends of High Profile Sportsmen) or simply footballers' wives.

Flash and work those gams in a sexy cotton T-shirt just like Lindsay for a cool and effortless, youthful look.

MOSCHINO's MILEY WILD Spring Summer Collection

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Are You An Overt or Covert Fashion Lover? Depending on where you stand, Moschino's Spring Summer 2015 Barbie-theme runway collection is not for the faint-hearted.

Capturing the three hottest returning for trends in our edit above are (from left to right) the following runway styles:

1) Cropped tops or bustiers
Don't be afraid to ditch those plain mono colour bustiers and opt for those with snazzy nineties-inspired color paper graphic prints.


2) Patent leather clothing
This pretty pink candy-wrapper patent leather dress with an easy-to-wear and cheeky long zip on the front from Moschino will be sure to turn heads.


3) Denim Re-imagined
Denim in it's original blue self is nothing but boring and screams plain Jane. Embellished with sequins, bleached, and coated gold, denim takes another form of a new life in Moschino's runway show.

Sporty spice and everything nice. Old-school roller-blades are the new practical heels.

Remember those rubber cowboy boots you used to put on a Barbie doll's feet? Now their back only in real life and better.

Blaze the runway and beyond in a blinding white pair of cowboy boots which is cute and more comfortable than strappy sandals anytime.

Moschino's beautiful biker jacket can be worn as a cropped jacket, skirt or handbag. Pick your choice.


Runway Make-up Tip
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Matchy-matchy outfits with all-over logo printed on never looked so cool. Complete the Barbie-look with a bright pastel pink lipstick.

Did you know that bright pink lipsticks suits every woman regardless of your ethnicity?

We recommend YSL's Rouge Volupte lipstick in the shade Fetish Pink although it's old name Malibu Barbie is probably a more appropriate name.

They key to balancing a bright pink lip colour is to keep the make-up simple with minimal blusher and light eye make-up.

The Spring Summer collection was also inspired by the beach with polka-dot bikini one-piece swimsuits printed onto a bright orange dress and underwear worn as outerwear.

Thank you Jeremy Scott for bringing Barbie to life in not-so-boring clothes!

We've lost count how many times detours were taken once we spotted signage to off-the-road dairy farms that shout out "Ice cream".

Midweek Inspiration: Kendall Jenner Met Gala After Party Look

Beyonce Stole The Show on the red carpet of last night's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in a multi-colour crystal-studded see-through dress that reminded us of Saint Laurent's Fall Winter swarovski studded tights.

Kim Kardashian wore an overall boring, white gown while Rihanna tried to look like the empress dowager in a massive fur coat that would be the envy of any Russian supermodel. Sarah Jessica Parker looked like she was wearing a headdress suitable for Chinese theatre - if only she painted her face right.

The winner of best-dressed at last night's Met-Gala after-party has got to be celebrity model Kendall Jenner.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kendall certainly has the looks for modelling but perhaps not the quirky charisma of Cara Delevingne. Her snakeskin crop-top and sexy leather wrap skirt revealed her sturdy abs and long legs. Kendall wins hands down for being able to dress her age at the after-party - no stuffy maxi dresses, high-neck blouse or unflattering boxy cropped pants.

The Calvin Klein model was seen leaving the party with her sister Kylie Jenner who was wearing a sexy Moschino netting top.
