The Raw Edge Team Loves... (July 2011 Edit)

Could not wait until the end of the month so we thought we would share with you what and whom is getting much love at REB HQ this month.

Chanel Fall Winter 2011/2012 Couture Fashion Week

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - because she is british, because she was a Victoria's Secret angel, also because she wore this Gucci number (below) to the Transformers Permiere, & most importantly because she is absolutely stunning.

Ankle Boots - if you are a resident of the UK/ Europe or even the eastcoast of the states, you may be used to not so summery summers, random rainfall disrupting the occasional heatwave. Here at REB HQ ankle boots our are essential to get us through the 'summer' and thankfully a great transitional piece for AW! A fab way to toughen up cute vintage summer looks are with these Acne boots.

Bip Ling
This young lady is the latest 'it' girl on the scene.. Most likely to be spotted on the pages of fashion magazines, new Forever 21 Campaign or djing to the whose who of the fashion industry, or just casually posing on the red carpet! We first became acquainted with her by stumbling acrosss her quircky to say the least blog, instantly loved her prim/mishmash styling & complimentary RANDOM annotations/illustrations sprawled all over her blog! Confused much... Have a look for yourself  -
Big Destinys Child fans here at REB HQ (ode to the 90s/early noughties) & subsequently part of the Beyonce appreciation club! After the opportunity to see her I am tour live , followed by her Glasto set it was only right that we took a trip down to Itunes & copped 4 !! Not too sure how she could top her past bangers... & were convinced that she needs to settle down and play house... but after a listen of 4 it is now on HEAVY rotation at REB HQ! Fav tracks are Best Thing I Never Had, COUNTDOWN, End of Time, 1+1, I Was Here ... basically the whole shabang!  Also appreciating all her latest editorial work! The Knowles girl really know how its done...

Mint nails, current beauty obsession; looks great with our summer glow, get involved!

Friendly Fires - Their material  is always a good summer soundtrack, totally loving all the remixes to Haiwain Air. More importantly we cant get enough of their front man's dancing, we even had the pleasure to witness it at last year's wireless festival. LEGENDARY!!

Summertime Hair

If you are currently having dilemmas on  how to style your hair this summer, do not fear the Raw Edge Team have just a few ideas for you!!!

1. The sleek neat high pony tail- loving the simplicity but undermined glamour in this chic style, always a winner with statement outfits ! Try this with a side or middle parting ladies for added effect.

Chanel SS11

2. Rainbow Locks - Get Lauren Conrad's fun look this summer!

3. Just got out of bed waves- we all do it after a night out but for it now to be trendy is even better! Add some moose and hairspray and your good to go if your not as rock and roll at the time try some wave spray. Paul Smith' Sea Salt Wave Spray always enhances mine.

Also try v05 instant oomph powder for flat hair it works magic if you want more volume to add to the look? Please note:Curling tongs and Aussie heat spray are another option!

4.Be a braided beauty -whether it's across the front, hanging on the side  or all back in a fishbone plait, braided in a bun or to the side braids are sooo in ...again!
