It's a case of 50 Shades of fashion as Yvonne and Aoibhinn share look

IT is a case of '50 Shades of Fashion' for style mavens Yvonne Keating and Aoibhinn McGinnity.

The fashionable duo both know a good look when they see it.

Case in point - they have both opted for this particularly popular Karl Lagerfeld shirt with provocative neck belt.

Yvonne Keating recently stepped out in the crisp white shirt with a black leather belt - reminiscent of the fetish fashion that's taking a hold on catwalks and the high street alike.

The style is taking inspiration from the eagerly anticipated movie based on the cult book, which stars Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey.

Yvonne looked dapper in the garment when she recently attended the Peter O'Brien Capsule Collection Launch at Arnotts with her eldest daughter Missy (13).

The striking blond (40) displayed her elegant style in the white dress shirt, black culottes and Christian Louboutin court shoes.

The shirt, with its suggestive leather buckle-belt detailing around the collar, also caught the eye of Love/Hate star Aoibhinn (28), who wears it on the cover of this month's VIP magazine (left).

The cotton shirt in question is designed by Karl Lagerfeld, the revered force behind Chanel and Fendi.

The K by Karl Lagerfeld number retails for €220 in Harvey Nichols, Dundrum.

And staff there told the Herald that it was a "really popular" garment this season, featuring in many shoots and shows.

The 50 Shades phenomenon shows no signs of slowing down and was even recently picked up by Tesco who have created lingerie and pyjamas - for both men and women - created under the guidance of the book's author EL James.


Standout items include the Anastasia Key Charm bra in black and ivory colours. Menswear includes slogan vests, comfy pyjamas and shirt sets.

50 Shades leading man Jamie Dornan may have made a name for himself as a model - but he recently said that he personally finds the fashion industry "a bit silly".

"I have a lot of respect for the fashion industry, but when you break it down it's all a bit silly," he said.

"There's a certain stigma attached to the whole thing of model-turned- actor. I was always quite a reluctant model, to my agent's annoyance. I was never hugely keen on it or doing it."
