It’s fair to say that Rosie Huntington-Whitely looked sensational when she turned up to the Burberry show during London Fashion week wearing a matching blue trouser suit.
The long-line jacket featured military-style detailing with gold buttons and red piping stitched along the trouser leg, lapels and pocket flaps. Embracing the trend for wide leg trousers, the slim fit accentuated her already incredibly long legs.
It’s said good things come in threes and Trinity City hotel is living up to its name. The urban retreat in Dublin city centre is a bit of a hidden gem just beside Trinity College and right on the doorstep of all the best shopping, theatres and restaurants that the capital has to offer.
If you’re planning a shopping trip, their ‘Shop & Drop’ package is certainly worth exploring. It includes overnight accommodation for two with breakfast and you’ll be treated to a glass of bubbly on arrival. As a guest at the hotel you’ll also get to enjoy a 10pc discount in the Kilkenny store on Nassau Street. The ‘Shop & Drop’ package starts from €153 per room per night based on two people sharing.

It would seem that no area of Irish life is being omitted when it comes to celebrating the 1916 centenary. It has even spawned new Irish jewellery brand, Terrible Beauty, from artist Maria Parsons who has launched a collection inspired by the ordinary and extraordinary people of Dublin's Easter Rising. Prices start from €59, visit terriblebeauty.ie
Steal her style
Laura Whitmore brightened up a dull London night as she stepped out in a yellow tiered dress by Osman Studio at the Instyle BAFTA party. If you're going to liven up your wardrobe with one new colour, I strongly suggest you take your cues from Laura. Bright canary yellow, gold, mustard and lemon hues are all on trend for spring/summer 2016. Add a pop of the sunny colour to your outfit - a bag, heels or bright yellow blazer will do the trick. Or rock this trend head-to-toe for a statement look.
