Noelle Reno – London Collections: Men

Year on year we are seeing men care more and more about their appearance.  Men’s fashion and grooming is growing exponentially compared to women’s. This is why after spending over half my life in women’s fashion I’ve decided to dip a toe in the paternal pool. This very recent exploration began at London Collections: Men...
Noelle Reno: My Summer Must-Haves from L.K.Bennett at HoF

Noelle Reno: My Summer Must-Haves from L.K.Bennett at HoF

As if the gorgeous Rosamund Pike isn’t enough to incentivize you to buy, there is the summer party season which requires elegance, playfulness, and a nod to all that is classic. This places one squarely in the land of L.K.Bennett. Until I attended the Caroline Issa launch during London Fashion Week (this much-respected Editor designed...
Noelle Reno: My Week in James Lakeland

Noelle Reno: My Week in James Lakeland

James Lakeland is a designer name synonymous with timeless fashion. So thank goodness I had his help for a crazy week which saw me jetting to Monte Carlo, pictured in a British tabloid, breakfasting at Browns Hotel with Bentley Motors, lunching at Scott’s, boutique launches, and a fashion show/champagne tea party at one of London’s...
Noelle Reno: LFW Glamour- Mixing High and Low!

Noelle Reno: LFW Glamour- Mixing High and Low!

Celebrities, Front Row, Fashion Insiders, Pampering, and a Bentley… People have the misconception that Fashion Week is all parties, champagne, and red carpet treatment but I can assure you it is not. We fashionista’s moan just at the thought of the long days (first show at 9am, after parties at 10pm), massive crowds jammed into...
Noelle Reno: Top Trends From LFW...That You Can Actually Wear!

Noelle Reno: Top Trends From LFW…That You Can Actually Wear!

1. Mixing Textures: I’m assuming that since you are reading a blog about Trends you are one of the 120 million people that have heard the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis #1 chart topper “Thrift Store” song. The opening line, “I’m gonna pop some threads, only got $20 in my pocket…” is my segway into this...
Noelle Reno: The Anti-Resolution Resolution

Noelle Reno: The Anti-Resolution Resolution

February can be a tough month- your resolution didn’t work out so well, it is still cold and dark, and the Hallmark holiday of Valentine’s Day quite often doesn’t live up to our high expectations. I can’t change the weather or mainstream holidays but I can control how I feel about my habits. In January...
Getting Real! My must-have items...

Getting Real! My must-have items…

It has been said to me, a few times, that some people perceive me as just a socialite. I am always dumbfounded by this statement. Alas, we live in a society where women are taught to make everything look effortless. Demanding job? I can manage it! Making ends meet?  I’m fine! Dependent partner/parent/children? Not a...
What I got up to this LFW SS13

What I got up to this LFW SS13

This was one of my favourite LFW’s of all time. Not because of the collections, the mega-watt celebrities, or the gallons of champagne, all of which are usually pre-requisites for a fabulous time at this bi-annual event which is a mecca for fashion’s heavyweights. This was my favourite LFW because it seemed to lack ego...
Inside the Summer Sporting Scene

Inside the Summer Sporting Scene

The summer of 2012 will go in history as one of the brightest moments for our nation. For over two weeks, the eyes of the world were focused on Britain, and we did not disappoint. Giorgio Armani predicted 2012 would be the most stylist sporting event ever. In reality, Kate Middleton was largely on her...
The Jumpsuit: For when it's warm or cool

The Jumpsuit: For when it’s warm or cool

How much do I love a jumpsuit? Let me count the ways… providing warmth when it’s cold and perfect when it’s hot, good for day or night, and flattering all body shapes. Ideal for British summers. For the re-opening of the Esprit Oxford Streetstore I wore a delightful little number that I have not taken...
Celebrating Cannes Fashion

Celebrating Cannes Fashion

My final day of Cannes I presented my Top Picks of red carpet dressing for the industry bible, Variety. We did a live feed above the Croisette, over-looking the Festival de Palais (the famous establishment which houses the massive red carpet we see in photos). The fact that there are over 5,000 journalists from around...

You Cannes Too!

Follow my report below straight from the red carpet of Cannes on How to achieve the Cannes Film Festival look for less! From the moment I arrived in Cannes it was an adventure. I was not prepared for the hordes of people onLa Croisette– the main boulevard running between the super hotels and the waterfront....
