We have a Spring must-have for A-L readers! If there is one beauty product you need for some skin spring cleaning it the new L'Occitane Range.

I love this time of year as I am a serial procrastinator, therefore clearing out anything is a pretty awful ritual for me. However Spring offers a respite from the drudgery of what is loathed task into something more beautiful. So tip out your make-up bags, soak those brushes (especially the multi-functional one you use for everything! you will feel awesome.

So make-up and closet in check, the last but most important regime overhaul has to start with your skin. So which skin-care range has made the A-Listed Spring must have? None other than L’Occitane, well known for their gorgeous hand-creams, this April they have launched a Skin care range to truly put a spring back in your step. The new brightening skin-care range blends essential oil and wild daisy extract to help skin look more radiant and even-toned.

Emma Thomson, L’Occitane Skincare Innovations Expert comments, “Often it is difficult to find products that are gentle enough for the delicate eye area. The skin around the eyes is ten times thinner than the rest of the face and as we age, skin becomes even thinner due to the breakdown of collagen. L’OCCITANE have created two specialised products to target hyperpigmentation on this delicate eye area, which is so vulnerable to sun damage. I love products that work naturally and gently over time and our new Brightening Touch also hides any pigmentation & dark circles to give you a radiant eye area, great as a pick me up! I always say prevention is better that cure and I would always recommend using a daily SPF protection for the face to protect from further damage - try our Brightening Shield which is always my go to product to protect from ageing UVA rays.”

A-L gals tried and tested all 3 products, our product pick was the Eye Care Duo mask for sure. With allergies and itchy eyes for many this offered fantastic cooling relief and a brighter under eye area, in short fab result! For more information on the range please visitL'Occitane.

Model: Laura Coleman (BMA Models)
Clothing: Sofia Dourvari
Jewellery: Wearing Memories

MFW officially kicks off this evening and A-Listed will be giving you front row coverage! To get things started we had to begin with one of our favourite designers, Sofia Dourvari.

Hot on the high heels of her successful show at London Fashion Week, international designer Sofia Dourvari will be showing her 2014 pre-autumn collection at Manchester Fashion Week, a four day event over the Easter Bank Holiday. Sofia Dourvari designs are created for independent confident women and the pre-autumn collection provides some exciting looks to bridge the gap between the spring/summer and autumn/winter seasons. Colours will include black, silvers and metallics, with fabrics in Duchess satin, organza, Georgette, lurex metallic yarns,metallic pleat, faux leather and brocade. Sofia describes leather as a ‘new love’ and has used it to create simple shapes, as well as combining it with lace and, most interestingly, leather lace, for this collection.

The collection is made up of three parts - party dresses, cocktail dresses and long gowns – and, as with all Sofia Dourvari designs, there is a focus on shape and structure being used to create elegant and sophisticated looks. This seasons, Sofia has taken her inspiration from nature’s striking visual moments, such as raindrops glimmering on leaves and the dramatic majesty of flowers in different weather. Using dark brocade, leather lace and 3D structural flowers, Sofia has created pieces that can be easily distinguished by their unique finish. Long gowns with airy hems, structured from flower shapes, capture some of the effortless grace of nature and empower the wearer.

The statement piece is a ballerina extravaganza cocktail dress with hand sewn rosettes. We cannot wait to see this stunning dress, as well as the other amazing pieces, from Sofia Dourvari at Manchester Fashion Week 2014!

The perfect prescription for radiant skin... Step into Ruby Red's urban apothecary to discover their range of botanical body care with benefits!

Focusing on natural active ingredients found in nature, Ruby Red's body treatments utilise the nutrients and vitamins found in plants to work with the skin. The distinctive, pure aromas are hand blended for maximum therapeutic effect to create a luxurious at-home pampering experience that can be enjoyed every day.

Lauded by Zest magazine who dubbed it a 'Cult beauty brand' -and Vogue - 'A must have' have all led to a fantastic start for Ruby Red. Further industry acclaim was awarded for Best New Bath & Body Product at the Natural Products Show in April 2013. So what is the Ruby Red difference? Inspired by traditional apothecary, all Ruby Red products are developed and made in the UK using herbs, seeds and plants rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to improve the skin’s health and appearance.

Ruby Red believe that healthy, radiant skin needs vital nutrients from the outside as well as the inside. Founders Mike Ruby and Martine Burford are husband and wife team. Ruby Red is very consumer focused – Martine comments,

'We want to offer our customers the best quality products. A wise woman once said that in beauty although it might be the outside that sells the product, it is actually the inside that counts!'

A-Listed PR Girls tried out...

The Reviving Body Cleanser £32.00/500ml or £17.00/250ml

'Warm, invigorating, citrus aromas of Lime, Red Mandarin, Coriander and Cedarwood made for a really refreshing smell. I liked how this cleanser lathered up, some products lack in this area but this was a thoroughly good wash!'

The Cooling Foot Cream £19/60ml

'I loved this product, it was the equivalent of a soufflé meringue consistency fab to touch! The smell of peppermint wafted out of the tub and was tingly and cool on the soles of my feet. This is a great little buy for any shoe-loving girl friend and mummies of course. However I had a hard time hiding this from my husband!'

Designer Talk - Georgia Hardinge http://sett.com/a-listedblog/designer-talk-georgia-hardinge

Exclusive: Georgia Hardinge

Sam Saeed

Young, beautiful, talented and making a name in the world of fashion like no other -Georgia Hardinge has ensured her signature style encompassing sculptural prints, 3D/2D prints and architectural silhouettes have stood out from the crowd.

Her unique designs have been lapped up by celebrities and artists all over the globe and it doesn't stop there. As a British Designer she has gained notoriety in collaborating with huge brands such as Victoria Secret, Lancome and notably, River Island.

Yes, the High Street have finally allowed everyone to have a little piece of 'Hardinge' in their wardrobe – and about time I hear you say… Inquisitive as ever, A-L wanted to find out more about Georgia, her inspirational ideas behind the catwalk and her future plans.

When did you know you wanted to pursue a career in fashion?

Ever since I was young I have always been interested in art and sculpture and before I started university I realised that translating this into clothing was a unique way to express my creativity.

You recently won the Best Fashion Award 2013 Berlin Fashion Film Festival. Tell us more about this?

It is an amazing achievement to win the Best Fashion Award at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival last year. Unfortunately I couldn't attend the festival myself, as I was too busy with the new collection. Alex Turvey, the director, went to Berlin for the ceremony and won a second award for the film in Best Cinematography. I am so happy with the outcome of the film itself. We made a 1000 meter dress, which covered the entire stage and blended in with the set design we filmed in. The dress and set design really bring across that the film was inspired by H. R. Giger, the set designer/ sculptor.

You have many celebrity admirers who adore your work including Lady Gaga, Jessie J and Alicia Keys to name but a few. How does this make you feel?

It feels great to have someone interested in your brand in itself and having these great artists wear them is such a great reward after a lot of hard work in the studio. It makes it all worth while!

What's in store for 2014?

In terms of design, we continue to experiment with sculptures and pleating techniques, so there will be a lot of bespoke sculpture pleating going on in the AW2014 collection. We are very excited about the shapes and colours, which are also reflected in the print design. In terms of the business we are working on building a strong international retail presence and would love to start showing the collection in even more places.

Tell us more about your collaboration with River Island?

River Island was probably my favorite collaboration to date. I was able to work with so many talented people and work along side departments that I have never worked with before. I have a small studio in North London and being able to work with different departments on design, sales, pattern and buying was a real treat. I learned a great deal.

Your signature style is described as avant-garde yet wearable aesthetic. How do you like to make women feel in your clothes?

I like to make a woman feel confident. When working on collections I always make clothes to flatter the female silhouette, using diagonal lines in the print to give a woman an hour glass shape.

What most inspires you before you create a collection?

At the start of every collection I make paper shapes and the transform them into pleats. Then I create a concept around it and it all flows from there. It's quite spontaneous at the start but I think it's important to feel free when you’re in front of a white canvas. 8. Is there any advice you would give anyone who wants to be a fashion designer? Find your unique aesthetic and be prepared to work hard.

A-Listed recently attended Cirque Le Soir. As a suburban hot mum of two, leading a life most of you would holler ‘high-tea’ to, out of your Laura Ashley china tinkers, I was rather curious at what may lie ahead...literally.

So what to make of Cirque Le Soir and its inhabitants? Its outlandish £500k Frat Party Installation, celebrating its fourth anniversary at its new home on Carnaby Street?

‘If you don’t know, don’t worry’ is the motto echoed by the world’s most flamboyant club, so that’s exactly what I did and jumped down the rabbit hole. And boy did I fall into the land of ‘make-believe’

This was a visual feast of extraordinary performers, from dwarfs to giants, contortionists, magicians, fire breathers, burlesque acts, break dancers and death-defying performance acts. Got your attention…?

With London offering some of the best night-life around, Cirque offers an experience scaling from voyeurism to serious child-like fun (AKA Ball-pit go crazy, play 80’s Mario-cart, or have a good-old fashioned pillow fight *real bed included)

The interior is an incredible layout of club meets house, on my travels I crossed a kitchen, living and bed-room all crammed with revellers caught up in the labyrinth of surprise.

Needless to say, the music was off the charts and monster tracks were pounding throughout the performances. Some of the best dub-step kicked off the night followed by old-school 80/90’s R&B. I had an outrageously fun night and can see why this place will leave most folks coming back for more, friends in tow.

So as my night drew to a close, I bid fare-well to the circus, I promised I would return.

Rabbit holes can be addictive - If you don’t know, don’t worry x

Copyright RexFeature

Johansson announced she was pregnant just earlier this month, but a recent poll by online lingerie store My Curves & Me saw her pip the likes of Drew Barrymore and Kimberley Walsh to the post as the best dressed pregnant celebrity.

The poll, which collated nearly 500 votes on Babynames.co.uk featured a host of pregnant celebrities including Olivia Wilde (10%), Kelly Clarkson (8%) and Sam Bailey (6%) but Johansson emerged victorious with 30% of the vote, after her first appearance on the red carpet since her announcement showcased the beginnings of a bump.

“Scarlett has long been held in high esteem for her fashion choices and we’re not at all surprised to see that British women are impressed by the start of her maternity style” says Leah of Mycurvesandme.com. “With her classic Hollywood glamour, we are all fascinated to see how this evolves to accommodate her growing bump”.

So how can expectant mothers grab a little of Scarlett’s pregnancy style?

“Getting the lingerie right is the first place to start. Johansson is famed for her curvaceous assets and during pregnancy, many women will see their bra size increase. Great support is an absolute must in the form of quality maternity lingerie, no matter what your cup or back size” Leah recommends.

Leah adds “Once you’ve got the foundations right, you can choose Johansson-inspired items such as the peplum top she wore to the “Captain America: The Winter Soldier" premiere in Hollywood that mums-to-be swooned over, safe in the knowledge that you are comfortable and supported underneath”.

James MacFarlane, Managing Director of Babynames.co.uk says “Last year, we saw Kate Middleton crowned the best dressed celebrity and women are still raving about the classic pregnancy style she displayed before the birth of Prince George. It’s no wonder that someone as glamorous as Scarlett Johansson has captured the attention of British women this year and her fashion choices during pregnancy are sure to leave a lasting legacy on maternity fashion, just as Kate Middleton’s choices have done”.

With Scarlett Johansson having a little while to go before her bundle of joy arrives, it seems she’s started off on the right foot in the maternity style stakes.
