With festival season creeping up, the KD girls have been discussing festival favourites. One on our ‘must attend’ list is Sonar Festival, Barcelona. Here are some hints and tips on how to survive festival season and how to achieve the perfect festival ready look…
Why not add some sunshine to the typical British summer by taking a look at our new mini collection ‘High Summer’, now available on our web-store; http://www.kirsty-doyle.com/.
Here at Kirsty Doyle we love the mermaid style skirt when going for full length glamour, it seems so do the red carpet favourites. From Sharon Stone looking stunning in Cavalli to Emma Watson in her monochrome dress. Fitted to the knee and flare out with a train is a look that flatters every shape and is timeless in it’s style.
See http://www.kirsty-doyle.com to see our LD Dresses with their mermaid skirt and train.
Here are some sneaky behind the scene images, exclusively for you blog readers. The images come from our shoot for the new Kirsty Doyle SS13 pieces. The items will be available over on our webstore soon. So keep an eye out!!!

Former Corrie actress walked down the red carpet on Saturday, looking amazing and showing of her gorgeous figure in a bespoke Kirsty Doyle Lemon LD bustier dress.
Shobna styled her KD creation with a sleek cream clutch, and a chunky braclet. She kept her make-up to a nude and brown colour palette, while letting her hair fall loosely on her shoulders.
The actress’s red carpet look received some lovely comments, including from stylist Grace Wooward who voted her best dress of the evening and we totally agree. She looked gorgeous.
Can you believe it, Shobna’s clutch costs just £20 from boohoo.com. So cheap you can buy one in each colour. A great buy!!

Between all the preparations for the soap awards on Saturday, we were lucky enough to have a quick catch with the gorgeous Hollyoaks actress Anna Shaffer we chatted about style, beauty and getting ready for the awards.
Anna looked amazing in a bespoke nude Marianna dress. Styled with an amazing Charlotte Olympia clutch, gorgeous curled hair which was swept to the side and lashings of red lipstick. She showed us exactly how to style a Kirsty Doyle creation. The hint of leopard print from the clutch really finishes of the outfit.
How would you describe your personal style?
I think I have quite a simple but classic style. Lately i’ve been experimenting with more patterns and prints, especially as we move into summer.
It’s so important to have fun with fashion too, I think the older I get the less I care about what other people think and I’m much more willing to give new
things a try…even if they end up a bit of a disaster!
What are your style inspirations and influences?
I love Mad Men. If I could dress like Joan every day I absolutely would! I think the french dress fabulously too, they keep silhuettes sleek and simple and use accessories as a way of standing out. In terms of people, I take huge inspiration from Jessica Alba and Diane Kruger. They are always flawless and look effortless. Their style is timeless but they always have a modern twist which I think is really interesting. And it helps that they’re stunning too!
Do you have any red carpet beauty tips?
Give yourself time! There is nothing worse than feeling rushed before an event as you will make rash decisions about your make up that you will totally regret later. And looking flustered and clammy on the red carpet because you had to get ready in 5 minutes is never a good look! I think a strong lip is always fabulous. Red literally goes with ANYTHING and can transform an outfit. Also less is more. If you’re having a heavy Eye go easy on the lips and vice versa….oh and check your teeth for lipstick!!! That’s definitely something I’ve learnt!
Do you enjoy getting ready for award events?
I generally get a little stressed before events, so it’s so important to plan ahead. If I know my dress is wonderful and I know exactly how I want my make up and hair then the rest slots into place…and it’s always good to leave yourself a good hour before you need to be there so you can relax with a cheeky drink and remember to enjoy yourself!
