It’s all everybody is talking about right now, and hot of the block it is indeed! The Great Gatsby (Written and directed by non other than Baz Luhrmann) and starring Isla Fisher, Leonardio DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan is sure to turn heads today. The premier took place in Cannes yesterday and the film was released into UK cinemas shortly afterwards. Based on the 1925 novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald and filmed mostly in Sydney, the film is set in New York in the 1920s and follows the glamorous and wild lifestyle of Mr Gatsby.

We love finding great look a like pieces here at Style School, and these shoes in particular (loved by the celebs of course) are a great way to start the summer. As always, Zara are brilliant at selling great copy cat designer shoes for a lovely price…Which do you like best?
Satchels are the perfect go to accessory this summer to brighten up any outfit. Loved by fashionistas worldwide, theses preppy leather bags have fast become a staple to our wardrobes. Team with frayed shorts and brogues for a casual look and dress them up with leather trousers and a chiffon shirt in the evening. Satchels are widely available across the high street and also online – so what’s stopping you?! Here are some of our favourite celebs with their very own satchels…
The annual fashion event of the year took place last night in NYC, and with a gothic theme we were pretty shocked to see the transformation of so many (Anne Hathaway with her newly blonde hair and Nicole Richie with her grey hair!!) There was a lot of punk on display and in tow came the studs, the heavy eye makeup, black lace and dark lips. All in all a fun fashion night out and we loved browsing through the funky arrange of outfits from last night (even if it does feel as if Halloween has come early).
As we finally start to see the sunshine here in London, this got us thinking over which shoes we will wear with our fringed shorts and summer dresses in the coming months. Don’t think that just because the sun is out you have to pack away your Winter biker boots. In fact we think (as do the celebs) that boots go just aswell in the summer when teamed with a cute pair of shorts (see below). We’ve chosen our favourite A lister looks and our favourite boots to give you some stylish inspiration. Perfect for a day in the park, and after work outfit or just for a spot of shopping…

Frends can be found atHarrods,Amazon,Avenue32and as of next month(Selfridges too!). The luxurious feel to this upmarket brand simply oozes sophistication and after seeing features in magazines such asCosmopolitanandEllewe couldn’t resist a quick blog review.

As the first weekend of Coachella passes us by, we take some time to examine the outfits on display at the celeb filled festival held annually in the Californian desert. From Models to Singers, Coachella was THE place to be this weekend. Filled to the brim with palm trees, rock bands and cut off denim shorts, everything about this festival gives off that cool hippie vibe.
Bright socks are all the rage right now as we make the transition from Winter to Summer and what better to fashion your feet with than a pair of colourful ankle socks. Team with brogues or ankle boots for an instant lift just like Fearne Cotton and Alexa Chung. For a dressed down look try Topshop’s ankle socks with frilly edges or for a more dramatic look try a pair of polka dot Happy Socks!
