Rihanna rocks long socks at PFW14

Rihanna rocked the new fashion craze for socks and sandals, at Paris Fashion Week and showed us how to master the new trend...

over knee socks

Team over knee socks with skyscraper suede sandals, of the same colour. This way you have a hint of sexy ankle strap but the look is blended; this will ensure longer, leaner looking pins! Throw on a loose fitted, slinky shift dress to complete your effortlessly sexy, laid back look. Oh and don't forget your shades and berry red lips!

We've put together a few highstreet pieces with Pamela Mann Fine Rib Over Knee Socks to capture Rihanna's style...

Shop- Long socks, Dress, Sandals, Sunglasses, Lipstick

...versatile high fashion long socks for wear with any outfit. Like Rihanna's, the fashion long socks have a fine rib running through them and look and feel fabulous with whatever you choose to team them with...

and as Spring has turned all frosty on us, don't forget your coat!!

Emma Watson works her magic at the Oscars!

Emma Watson made her debut at the Oscars in spectacular style! She looked breathtakingly beautiful as she sauntered up the red carpet.

Emma wore Vera Wang and SPANX Higher Power Brief
Emma wore a stunning, metallic and black gown by Vera Wang and silver Jimmy Choos. The star also revealed that she was wearing her trusty Spanx Higher Power Brief  beneath her gorgeous gown, to perfect her silhouette.

Spanx Higher Power Brief

Perfect power brief shape wear for ladies who want to concentrate on their tummy area, with soft comfort cotton panty, plus non binding leg band to eliminate vpl. The power briefs are great with trousers too!

Although Emma wasn't nominated at this year Academy Awards, look out for the hotly anticipated film Noah, which is due out this month. There's plenty of hype surrounding the biblical drama which Emma stars in alongside Russell Crowe; we will be seeing plenty more stylish red carpet appearances from the starlet in the near future!

Claudia Schiffer charms in her Haute Contour Spanx

Claudia Schiffer made a rare media appearance on the Jonathan Ross Show last weekend. The super model, wearing a figure hugging body con dress and Spanx Haute Contour Tights , stunned the audience with her gorgeous appearance.

Claudia spoke of her shy nature on the show and revealed that she received her very own indecent proposal in the past. She was once offered $1million to go on a date with a wealthy business man, to which she politely declined!

The model showcased her pins in highest quality Spanx hosiery. The control tights made with sumptuous yarns. 50 denier with tummy and love handles taming bandeau all the way round. Although Claudia needs no help in the figure department, the amazing spanx hosiery, shaper tights smooth your silhouette beautifully and are completely invisible under clothes.

Celebs rarely make an appearance, these days, without their beloved spanx hiding beneath!!
