Vogue 100 Exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery

Last week I was invited to attend a preview of the new Vogue exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London.  The exhibition is celebrating an amazing 100 years of Vogue! I can't believe it has been going that long, since the 1st World War!  So I was very excited to receive an invitation as I always love attending events at the National Portrait Gallery.

The exhibition displayed all the best covers of the magazine and some of the beautiful photos from shoots that have taken place over the last 100 years.  I was in awe looking at the stunning photography of some of the most famous people in the world.  I was also fascinated to see some people that I hadn't even expected to appear in Vogue; The Queen, Boris Johnson?!

The exhibition is split into separate rooms and each room is designated to a different decade.  It was lovely to see some of the people that have appeared in the magazine in years way before I was born and also to see how the covers have changed over the years. One thing that also stood out for me was how much the magazine has changed in price; in the 1970s it was just 35p!  

Just FYI I get my Vogue on a subscription which works out a lot cheaper and means I don't have to keep running to the shop for it.  I then have all my editions displayed on a bookcase in my flat.

They also had a room with all the best covers from over the years.  My favourites being David Bowie, Princess Diana, Cara Delevinge and of course Kate Moss (she's been on loads!).  They then had a room showing a old fashioned video (which you can see on my Instagram @wonky_lauren) of how a photoshoot becomes a cover.

I would highly recommend this exhibition whether you're into fashion, photography or just like looking at photos of famous people, there is something for everyone!  The exhibition is now open to the public and the tickets are priced at £17 which you can buy in advance here.

Do you like the sound of it?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
