We all nearly lost our minds when it was announced that Clueless was getting the musical treatment; and with good reason, it’s a classic.

Anybody who lives for fashion knows that makeover scene by heart. Not to mention they’ve got the Audrey Hepburn outside Tiffany’s pose down, just need that Givenchy couture to really nail it.

One small problem, while there’s nothing wrong with these fashion classics, sometimes we need to change things up a bit.

So once you’ve managed to work Cher and Dionne’s skirt suits into your everyday wardrobe, you’re ready to move on to tackling some of the styles in these inspiring films that every fashion girl has got to watch.

Even if you don’t eat, sleep and breathe fashion blogs or haut couture, there’s just something about these that make us want to overhaul our wardrobes.

Annie Hall:

Woody Allen may not be for everyone, but the fashion in Annie Hall makes up for that, if you ever wanted to know how to really work the big brimmed hat trend, let this be a lesson for you.

The September Issue:

A behind the scenes look at how Anne Wintour and her production team put together their biggest issue of the year. If you’re any way interested in fashion this is a must see peak behind the scenes.

Heathers:

Before Mean Girls and The Plastic arrived, this clique were it in the fashion film world. If you need a refresher in 80s style, look no further.

Cabaret:

Allow Liza Minnelli to inspire you to live your life draped in glittering robes, bowler hats, and lingerie as outer wear. Sally Bowles was fierce.

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service:

The Bond film that almost nobody likes, except for fashionistas. No Daniel Craig here unfortunately. However, the late 60s fashion completely makes up for, just in time to gather some inspiration before River Island’s 60s inspired looks hit the shops. 

Sex and the City 1 and 2:

Ok so you've probably watched this before too, but we couldn't leave it off the list completely!

We can all admit we’ve daydreamed of being a bridesmaid one day.

Playing such a special part in your sister or best friend’s big day is the ultimate honour, however, it will set you back quite a lot of money.

Weddings are certainly a pricey affair, even for the regular guests. However, when it comes to the bridal party their big role in the wedding sees them spending an extortionate amount of money.

The Vow has conjured up just how much money the average bridesmaid is spending. Those of you with upcoming bridesmaids duties may want to close your eyes.

They revealed that the average bridesmaid spends a whopping €500.

24 percent of women involved in their study said they spend €500-€800, however, 17 percent admitted they have spent an eye-watering €1000 on the nuptials.

Others (8 percent) even admitted to spending over €1500 on their friend or family member’s big day. Ouch!

The bride and groom tend to look after the bridesmaid's outfit and all things beauty, but what’s really costing bridesmaids a small fortune is the little things.

Things like decorations for hen parties, alcohol, and engagement gifts are costing a pretty penny.

Being a bridesmaid may be a huge honour but you’d certainly want to start saving straight away if you’ve got a big wedding coming up.

It’ll cost a few bob, but there’s no doubt in our minds that it’ll be worth every penny.

We all shudder in terror when reflecting on our intern days. Days filled with running coffee orders and practically living in the office.

But none of us had it nearly as bad as Andy, the fresh-out-of-college intern at Runway Magazine. We totally felt for her in Lauren Weisberger's book The  Devil Wears Prada. 

The book and film adaptation follows the story of a newly hired personal assistant for an editor at a fashion magazine.

According to Harper's Bazaar, Lauren admitted that the book was based on her own experience as an intern at Vogue. The character Miranda, her boss in the book, was inspired by Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

(Yes, Miranda really exists!)

The story follows Lauren’s experience working as Anna’s personal assistant and what life was like working for the magazine.

And we just love Meryl Streep's interpretation of her!

via GIPHY

Obviously, she said at the Hearst Big Book Festival, her novel was a dramatised version of her real experience.

So, it took us by surprise when the author recently revealed that she does not regret working for the ‘devil’ in Prada, despite how difficult her job was.

Say what? We know Miranda slays, but nobody would want to work for her! The intimidating editor has no patience for her assistant and sends her on ridiculous errands like fetching an original manuscript of Harry Potter for the editor's daughter.

And for those of you who haven’t seen the film, then clear your weekend schedule. It’s sasstastic!

20th Century Fox

Despite the job's hardships, Lauren confessed: “I don't think I could've had a better experience in terms of my career.”

She learned so much during her intern job and relished the opportunity to see how the magazine ran everything so efficiently.

Her flair for fashion, no doubt, was probably a major factor in her motivation to stick through her nightmarish boss’  demands.

20th Century Fox

However, Lauren does admit she complained throughout the duration of her job. “I did a lot of complaining. [..] But I absolutely loved it. Looking back at that time, it was one of the most valuable times of my career.”  

Although the book is filled with horror stories of her demanding boss and her constant scrambling to please her, humour weaves the plot together in a must-see manner.

Working can be difficult when it’s long hours, and let's admit it, we all have had a boss we wanted to scream at.

But, like Lauren, if you surround yourself with the best people in the biz, then it’s worth the bottom-of-the-food-chain treatment. One day, you will earn your spot up top and be able to use everything you’ve learned in the process.

As we all know, shopping for maternity clothes is an absolute nightmare. Nearly everything is outrageously expensive, and even if you do decide to invest in a few items, then you're disheartened by the fact that you only get to wear them for a few short months.

That's why we were so thrilled to hear that Dunnes Stores has launched a new maternity collection under the badge of its popular Savida brand.

They're creating more affordable choices in the market for expectant mums who want to look great throughout their pregnancy, without breaking the bank.

This exciting capsule collection offers expecting mums a complete maternity wardrobe that builds on Savida's trend-led fashion at extremely affordable prices. The collection is built around the insight that pregnant women want a wardrobe of key staples and statement pieces they can wear throughout their pregnancy.

The Savida maternity collection is comprised of pieces that will take the wearer from work-day to weekend wear and everything in between. 

The maternity line includes feminine dresses with tie detail and soft stretch fabrics in prints and polka dots. 

Soft chunky knit tops with ruffle detail and more casual scoop neck vest and long-sleeved tops can be paired with seamfree leggings, jersey skirts, and skinny jeans.

Savida's trademark embellishments and feminine style are evident in the cute button detail sweatshirt, while the flattering Laura scoop neck jersey dress in black is a key piece that completes the collection. 

The new Savida Maternity line from Dunnes Stores is available online and in the following shops: Stephen's Green, Cornelscourt, Henry Street, Blanchardstown, Liffey Valley, Tallaght, Swords Pavilions, Newbridge, Terryland, Jetland SC, Patrick Street, Bandon Road, Cornmarket, Forrestside, Foyleside, Forte Letterkenny.

As always, this summer we’ve found ourselves lusting after Kate Middleton’s style finds yet again. Let’s face it — the Duchess of Cambridge really knows how to rock a midi dress. 

From floral to monochrome, Kate’s a true pro at exuding effortless elegance. We loved this season’s looks so much that we decided to hunt down some suitable dupes at affordable prices. Be quick though — we have a feeling that these are going to sell out fast!

The Floral Shirt-Dress

The Duchess wore this summery look on her trip with Prince William to Barry Island in Wales in early August. This leaf-print belted midi shirt-dress from M&S is a very cost-effective alternative, priced at €54.

The White Midi-Dress

This clean and classy shirt-dress made its debut at Wimbledon in 2019, and Kate looked just as stunning in it again this year when she wore it to Baby Basics UK, a baby bank in Sheffield. The Duchess helped unpack donations, before talking to parents about how baby banks have provided them with invaluable support when they needed it most. This white midi shirt-dress, complete with puff-sleeves and a tie-waist-belt from River Island (and available on ASOS), is the perfect dupe for this elegant number. Plus, it’s an absolute bargain on sale for only €60.83.

The Polka Dot Dress

If you’re looking for a chic and trendy pattern then black and white polka dots are the way to go. We adored this timeless outfit Kate wore back in July, when she was promoting the BBC Education initiative, Tiny Happy People. This shorter barb polka dot tea-dress from Joanie is a great alternative, which you can wear all year round, coming in at nearly €50.

The Summer Floral Dress

Who doesn’t love a summery floral dress? Definitely not Kate anyway, as she was glowing in this vibrant, floral piece. With so many amazing patterns and styles out there at the moment, it really was a struggle to find one which matched The Duchess’ dress perfectly. However, we think this pink-floral-print, angel-sleeved midi-dress from Topshop fits the bill nicely. It’s available in regular, tall and petite sizes for only €64.

Pippa looked beautiful when she arrived at the ParaSnowBall at the Hurlingham Private Members Club in London.

The mum wore a dress by Anna Mason, which will set you back a pretty £990.

The tulle floral and polka dot number is by far one of the nicest outfits Pippa has donned since she made headlines with her stunning made of honour gown at Kate and William’s wedding in 2011.

The 36-year-old said she was honoured to attend the ParaSnowBall. She posed for photographs with attendees and looked as happy as ever.

The ParaSnowBall is an event for people with disabilities who engage in winter sports. Pippa has been attending the ball for years and is deeply passionate about supporting the event.

Speaking about the inspirational event, she said, “I am honoured to be supporting Disability SnowSport UK and as a keen skier myself, I feel very passionately about enabling those with a disability to experience the joy of skiing alongside non-disabled people. The ParaSnowBall sponsored by Delancey was an inspirational celebration of Paralympians," HarpersBazaar reports.

The Middleton sisters have certainly upped their style game this year.

Jennifer fought back the tears as her friend and co-star Adam Sandler delivered an emotional speech about her legendary work.

As Jennifer took to the stage, she couldn’t help but gush about the actor.

“Adam! When did you get so mushy?! Oh my God, I love this man with all my heart. This is one of the kindest human beings you'll ever meet."

The actress delivered a witty and emotional speech that left the crowd in stitches, “As actors, we don't do this for the critics of for each other or to make our families proud, we do this for the money. No! I'm kidding! We do it for you guys, seriously, we really do. None of us could do what we do if it was not without all of you."

'Friends' was truly, it was the gift of a lifetime and I would not be standing up here without that amazing show, without those amazing five other actors and with an audience who stuck with us for a decade," Aniston added.

We have always envied Adele’s style. The Chasing Pavements singer always oozes class and glamour and her latest look is no different. 

The songstress attended Drake’s 33rd birthday party on Wednesday night and wore the most beautiful gown.
