Kendall Jenner's anticipated appearance in Cannes yesterday predicatably stunned the crowd, with a breathtaking pink tulle gown stealing the show.

The supermodel wore a strapless, voluminous, tiered dress for the amfAR Gala during the elite French film festival, and the dress brought ALL the drama.

Featuring a high-low hem with a long train, she later detached it to reveal a mini version of the gown. We love versatility, and this embodies it.

Normally we'd always assume that everything a Kardashian/Jenner dons is simply for the rich folk of society to enjoy, and we'll slowly retreat to Penneys or our local charity shop.

As it turns out, the dress can actually be bought in H&M, of all places. The gown is part of couture designer Giambattista Valli's limited-edition collection with the high street brand.

The mini-version, and eight other looks, will be available to shop on H&M's website and in select stores on May 25 (tomorrow) as a pre-drop.

The full collection will launch on November 7, and Kendall has caused a furore of excitement to erupt after showing off the beautiful item. The capsule will also include ready-to-wear, accessories and menswear. 

Paris-based Giambattista Valli is a master of beauty and sophistication, and now you can pop into H&M and say you've flaunted the same outfit as Kendall Jenner.

The limited edition of nine looks, as well as a few accessories, will go live in selected stores and online at the end of this year, and the countdown has officially begun.

We're all most likely familiar with the incredible Marvel film Black Panther.

One of the biggest phenomenon's of 2018, and the highest grossing superhero movie of ALL TIME, the hiring of a nearly all-black cast was a pivotal moment in cinema.

The setting of Wakanda remains one of the most iconic aspects of the film, which mainstream fashion has gripped onto.

The film's acclaimed costume designer Ruth E. Carter wanted to change the public's generalised perception of the African continent;

“I want people to have a new vision of the continent of Africa,” she told Refinery29.

“I want people to understand it's not just this dark place where everyone dresses the same with bones in their nose, living in a grass hut. People need to see this is a modern continent. It has a voice and an aesthetic.” 

Unfortunately, clothing brand Forever21 have released clothing inspired by the film, but have gotten into some hot water when it comes to the models chosen…

Fans of the film are NOT happy to see possibly the palest man in existence modelling merchandise for the infamously diverse movie, but some fans are claiming that the backlash is unfounded.

Forever21 tweeted; "Wakanda Forever, get the sweater here" last night, alongside a photo of a mens' top, named a 'Wakanda Forever Fair Isle Sweater.'

Twitter did it's job, to say the least. The clothing company quickly deleted the tweet, but the image is still on their website.

If you click on the link, it redirects you to another model, this time a diverse one, wearing a yellow and black sweater.

There's nothing wrong with a person of any race enjoying a movie's merchandise of course.

However, many users online were troubled at the perceived whitewashing, considering the film is arguably the first superhero of it's kind to appeal to all races, ages and genders.

Whitewashing has been appearing in fashion more and more recently, with Zara and H+M getting into trouble for missteps in their high street fashion.

Prada found itself getting backlash last week for a shop window display featuring a charm eerily reminiscent of a Blackface character.

We think Forever21 need to be a tad more careful with it's marketing campaigns…

H&M has officially made shopping trips easier by making their UK sizes bigger after years of backlash from customers about their tiny sizing.

We all know that finding the right size can be quite the daunting task. It can be a draining experience that often knocks our self-confidence.

Our size varies from store to store, you could fit into a size 10 top in one place, but need a size 14 in another.

Finally, after years of negative comments from customers about their extremely small clothes, H&M will now sell clothes that match UK measurements.
A spokesperson for H&M told HuffPost: “Following customer feedback, we are taking the steps to change our womenswear measurements to be in line with the UK sizing, for example, the previous measurements and fit of a size 12 will now be the measurements of a size 10.”
This means clothes that were once labelled a size 14 will now be labelled a size 12.

Customers have noticed a massive difference between H&M’s clothing sizes and other high street stores, which made shopping in the store trickier for many women.

The Swedish clothing company explained that their clothing sizes followed European measurements rather than UK ones.

This is a huge step forward for the clothing store, and it is bound to make shopping experiences a hell of a lot more easier from now on.



While the warm weather may have retired this week (hopefully temporarily) the high street is definitely gearing up for summer styling. 

Doireann Garrihy always gets it right in the style stakes, and one of her most recent OOTD snaps on Instagram is no exception. 

Aperol Spritz in hand (don't mind if we do), Doireann's cream crêpe two-piece was instantly added to our mental wishlists.

The gorge little co-ord is from the Anne Glover X H&M collection, and has just arrived in stores nationwide. 

While many of the sizes are sold out online, we had a look around town yesterday and saw plenty still in stock. 

While Doireann opted for a classic look, pairing her co-ord with metallic runners and a navy top, we can think of quite a few ways to get your cost-per-wear out of the ensemble, whether you wear it together or separately. 

 Shorts €22.99, and Blazer €39.99

For a night-out look, we would team the co-ord with a lime green bandeau top, delicate gold jewellery, nude barely-there heels and lashings of tan. 

To keep things summery at work, we would throw the blazer over a plain white T-shirt and blue jeans, or wear the entire co-ord with a white t-shirt and white flatform runners. 

For your holidays, the shorts would look divine with a black matador hat, black crop top and sandals. 

Happy shopping.

Every year, H&M teams up with a famous brand to produce an affordable range of designer clothing. 

We've seen collections from Erdem, Balmain and Alexander Wang (and many others). 

This year, we'll be gifted with a range of clothing from none other than Jeremy Scott and Moschino.

In an announcement made by Gigi Hadid at Moschino’s annual Coachella party, it was revealed that they were teaming up with H&M.

Speaking to Vogue, Jeremy said that: "This collaboration makes me feel like I’m able to give something again. Lots of young people love my clothes…and we make phone cases and little things like that, but in order to have a ‘lewk,’ I love that this is now something that will be affordable."

Moschino x H&M will include womenswear and menswear, with a number of casual and dressy pieces with ranging from €25 to €300.

The collection stands to be a merge of the affordable fashion H&M shoppers have grown to expect, along with the trendy (and sometimes a bit bonkers) fashion Moschino is loved for.

Moschino x H&M drops on November 8, and we cannot wait. 



After veteran artist, P Diddy, joined rapper, The Weeknd, and basketball star, Le Bron James, in their criticism of a recent H&M ad which appeared to communicate racist sentiments, the I'll Be Missing You singer decided to go one step further.

According to emerging reports this morning, Diddy has plans to hire the young model for his own clothing line, Sean John.

In fact, it has been claimed that the 48-year-old star is set to offer the child model a one million dollar contract on the back of this week's worldwide controversy.

Taking to Instagram to express his distaste for the retailer's ill-advised design and shoot yesterday, the New York-native wrote: "Put some respect on it!"

"When you look at us make sure you see royalty and super natural God sent glory!! Anything else is disrespectful."

Diddy shared a reimagined image of the shoot, which replaced the words 'monkey' and 'jungle' with the words 'king' and 'world'.

While P Diddy's representatives have yet to comment on the reports, it would make for a pretty upbeat development on the whole sorry saga.

H&M have since apologised, issuing a statement, saying: "We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print. Therefore, we have not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering globally.”



Global retailer, H&M, have pulled a garment from their product line following widespread backlash this week.

The controversy surrounds the retailer's decision to use a black child to model a hoody emblazoned with the slogan 'Coolest Monkey in the Jungle'.

Responding to the criticism, H&M made the decision to remove the image from their website, and issued an apology which outlined their plan to pull the garment from their line.

"We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print,” read the statement. “Therefore, we have not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering globally.”

According to The Irish Times, the retailer is launching an investigation into the origin of the print and its subsequent advertisement.

“It is obvious that our routines have not been followed properly. This is without any doubt,” the company said. “We will thoroughly investigate why this happened to prevent this type of mistake from happening again."

Rapper, The Weeknd, was among those incensed by the garment's racial undertones, tweeting that he was offended by the image and would not engage with H&M on a professional level in the future.

"Woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo. i’m deeply offended and will not be working with @hm anymore…" he wrote in a tweet which has amassed more than 200,000 likes since yesterday.



The high street is about to get a little more interesting thanks to fashion giant H&M. 

The fast-fashion company is launching a new brand, /Nyden, in the coming months. 

The brand will eschew typical trends and will instead focus on the curation of 'style tribes.'


A post shared by /Nyden (@wearenyden) on

These tribes will be defined by style influencers, who will collab with the brand to create distinctive clothing collections. 

The slash poised ahead of the brand's name represents the collaborative intentions of the line, it's creator Oscar Olsson told The Cut.

The brand is solely committed to millennials, who they belive will appreciate the affordable luxury promised by the new concept. 

The name is derived from a hybrid of the Swedish word for new, which is hy, and it which is den. 

The brand is expected to launch early this year, and so far there has been confirmation of two 'tribe leaders.'

The first is tattoo artist Doctor Woo, with 1.3 million Instagram followers, who will be working on the men's line. 

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace has also been confirmed to co-create for the line. 



H&M is the king when it comes to bringing epic high end style to the high street. 

As well as their fashion-forward collections season after season, the retail giant also collabs with amazing designers to create exclusive collections for the brand. 

From Kenzo to Balmain to Versace to Alexander Wang, the brand never fails to select relevant and covetable designers.

Today, H&M launched their latests collection with Erdem, and it was as tricky to get your hands on as all the others.

The collab features stunning pattered dresses, tweed suits and ethereal co-ords.

With distinctive floral prints being the dominant feature throughout the collection, it's set to be one of their most popular yet. 


A post shared by Ciara O'Doherty (@ciaraodoherty) on

Every blogger worth their salt has been flaunting their pre-release H&M X Erdem ensembles on Instagram for weeks, adding to the hype. 

The collection is available online and in store now, but there is a bit of a wait on the website. 

Despite restrictions being applied to consumers as to how many items they can purchase, pieces have already popped up on eBay.
