We have a long-held (okay, six months) style crush who is forever appearing on our image service under “Celebrity Sightings in London,” sporting some covetably cute jacket/jeans/hat/bag. And we always click, thinking, Who is that with the cute jacket/jeans/hat/bag?
Who it is, inevitably, is Fearne Cotton, a British television presenter. While we can’t say we’re familiar with her work first hand (she’s one of the zillions of British celebs whose mega-fame hasn’t transferred to North America), she is evidentially popular enough to have near-constant paparazzi presence and her very own clothing range, with the just-launched online retailer Very.co.uk. And why not? We’d love to buy her style.
While her red carpet look, which veers toward short and modish, is nice, it’s with Fearne’s every day style that we lay our affections. She doesn’t have an intimidating wardrobe of head-to-toe runway looks, but obviously knows what looks great on her and has an eye for good pieces. Her signatures are skinny jeans in rainbow colours (we’ve spotted red, pink, bright blue and yellow), printed maxis, a great (often Mulberry) bag, and sunglasses (our favourites are a pair of red circular specs). This is all topped with an enviable wardrobe of coats and jackets and paired as often with platform heels as with beat-up Converse. Ferne Cotton is like your laid-back girlfriend, whose outfits always look maddeningly simple, but are nevertheless hard to pull off in just the right way.
