Rita Ora debuts new toned-down hair

By getthesound on Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

She’s known for her bleach-blonde curls, however Rita Ora has decided to go for the chop, debuting a new shorter ‘do.

The ‘Hot Right Now’ singer stepped out with the new style as she attended an interview at Capital FM today.

The 21-year-old wore a low-key outfit of a pink knit jumper dress, teamed with a make-up-free face and her shorter locks (complete with dark roots) pulled back off her face.

The question is whether Miss Ora will keep this new dressed-down look or soon convert back to her blinged-up self.

Kim Wears Kanye’s shoes… well someone had to

By getthesound on Thursday, August 9th, 2012

How far would you go for love huh?

Shower your partner with gifts? Give them your last rolo? Or even wear the damn right ugly shoes that they designed?

Well that’s exactly what Kim Kardashian did as she stepped out in a pair of $6000 ‘Kanye West for Giusppe Zanoti’ shoes.

[Yes, that’s right… $6000!]

The furry footwears apparently earn their price tag due to being made from calf leather and embroidered with pearls, however the fact that they are probably the uglyest shoes on earth dimishes their value somewhat.

Poor Kim, if only her boyf had taste.

Cheryl Cole wears garish luminous outfit to Capital’s Summertime Ball

By getthesound on Sunday, June 10th, 2012

After looking pretty as a picture on Grahan Norton's show this Friday, Cheryl Cole turned up at Capital’s Summertime Ball yesterday in a rather… erm ‘intersting’ outfit.

The 28-year-old turned up to the event, at Wembley stadium, in a luminous multi-coloured jumpsuit, created by designer Pam Hogg.

Despite carrying out an energetic performance of her song ‘Call My Name’ with 12 backing dancers, there was no getting away from that eyesore of an outfit.

Cheryl has been known to have a rocky past when it comes to fashion- turning up on her first day of the American X Factor in a werid orange and purple outfit teamed with overly-backcombed hair.

Other performers at the event included Jessie J who wore a BOY London top teamed with studded black hotpants, Coldplay, Justin Bieber (who wore a union jack top) and Rita Ora who was rocking some rather decent shades.

Nicola Roberts dyes her hair pink

By getthesound on Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

She was known as ‘the ginger one’ in Girls Aloud, but now Nicola Roberts is more like the grungy one as debuted her newly-dyed pink hair this week.

The 26-year-old singer, who is currently filming a new fashion show for Sky Living with designer Henry Holland and Rihanna also looked a lot less preened that she usually does dressed in a long coat and trainers during a break from filming.

The star has admitted to suffering from low self-esteem in the past, mostly due to people brand her as the ‘ugly one’ from Girls Aloud.

She said in an interview:

"I hated it and I hated people judging me.

"I’d put on the telly and there would be someone saying something cruel. Normal people don’t have people telling them day to day that they;re ugly or miserable."

However, recently the singer has come into her own and turned into quite the fashionista.

In 2008, she launched her own make-up range Dainty Doll designed for pale girls and had a Top 20 hit with her debut solo album ‘Cinderella’s Eye’s’ back in 2011.

We think the hair looks great Nicola… although maybe lose the trainers and dress combo next time!

Tulisa fashion fails for BGT performance

By getthesound on Monday, May 7th, 2012

She was voted the sexiest woman this week, but Tulisa Contostavlos won’t be winning any awards for her fashion sense if last night’s outfit was anything to go by…

The 23-year-old wore an grey and black dress with odd netting features as she performed her new single on this years first live Britain’s Got Talent show.

She teamed the dress with flat black strappy pumps and sported purple streaks in her black hair.

Luckily she ripped off the ‘interesting’ dress halfway through her performance to reveal hotpants and a bra top, which was a little easier on the fashion eye.

Asked by Ant and Dec about how she thought the performance went after, she told the duo:

"…feels really good, amazing. Thank you for all your support."

Tulisa has been quoted in the past as saying she only wears highstreet clothes so that her fans can copy her.

Hmm, that is sweet Tulisa, but we don’t think they’ll be rushing to the shops to buy this outfit anytime soon- definitely sack the stylist!

Hot On The Street: Michelle Trachtenberg

By getthesound on Sunday, May 6th, 2012

The pale girl in a dying art in England these days, but it seems like our sisters over the pond still know how to sport translucent skin if Michelle Trachtenberg is anything to go by…

The Gossip Girl star looked gorgeous as she walked the streets of New York in a black ensemble featuring leather trousers, a fur coat and chanel bag, complete with traffic-stopping blood-red shoes.

The 26-year-old revealed earlier this year how she nearly got the role as Bella Swan in the Twilight series, telling US Weekly:

"There was definitely interest here and there because there’s only a few pale girls in Hollywood.

But unfortunately Kristen beat her to it with Michelle putting the loss down to ‘schedules not working out’.

Oh well, you may not be a professional vampire Michelle but you sure know how to work the vamp look!
