On the Run: Miranda Kerr - Not so much a style crush as a style inspiration

I'm not really one for having crushes on anyone, whether it be of a style nature or any other nature - that is excluding Gary Lineker and Gary Barlow of course - but those "crushes" have existed for far too long to be classed as crushes in any event!

There are celebs/A-listers who I think rarely put a fashion foot wrong - Diane Kruger and Solange Knowles to name but two but on the whole, a lot of celebrities just irritate me.

When I saw this picture of Miranda Kerr last week, her dress reminded me very much of a dress that I have had sitting in my wardrobe for quite some time, and it gave me the impetus to dig it out.  Not so much a style crush as a kick up the bum to get something different on (weather permitting)!



                                                     

Now clearly I don't have Miranda's figure on my side, nor the Balenciaga shoes to go with the dress, nor indeed the big burly bodyguard (I would make a joke here about not needing a body guard as no-one would want to steal our children but that would be in bad taste).  However, as far as the dress being similar goes, I think Oasis was way ahead of the game, all those years ago! What do you reckon?




Bet she can't chuck her dress in the wash when her little munchkin wipes his dirty mitts all over it. But then again I don't suppose dry cleaning bills are much of an issue for her.


Dress Oasis - over half a decade old now
Shoes by Jigsaw - ditto
Owner - starting the slow but steady creep into her fifth decade tomorrow!

  14. The very heart of your writing while sounding reasonable

    originally, did not settle perfectly with me personally after some time.
    Somewhere within the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a while.
    I however have got a problem with your jumps in logic
    and

    one would do well to fill in all those breaks. In the

    event you can accomplish that, I could definitely end up

    being impressed.

  26. In this awesome scheme of things you

    secure a B- for effort and hard work. Where exactly
    you actually lost us was on the details. You know, it is said, details make or
    break the argument.. And it could not be

    much more true in this article. Having said
    that, allow me inform you precisely what

    did give good results. Your text

    is definitely highly

    persuasive and that is probably why

    I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of


    doing that. 2nd, even though I can

    certainly see the leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really convinced of
    just how you seem to

    connect your details which inturn help to make

    your conclusion. For now I will, no doubt

    yield to your position but hope in the foreseeable
    future

    you actually link your facts much better.

  30. Great - I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your web site.
    I had no trouble

    navigating through all the tabs and related information ended up being truly simple to do

    to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least.
    Reasonably unusual. Is

    likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything,
    site theme . a tones way for

    your customer to communicate. Excellent task.
