HAWT: Emily Ratajkowski in David Koma, Balmain and Maria Lucia Hohan

Hawt = A late 1940's and early 1950's acronym for "Having A Wonderful Time."
Now the word is used on the internet as slang for something reeeeally hot.

Emily Ratajkowski has once again been hitting the headlines, but this time more for what she HAS been wearing, rather than what she hasn’t!  The model-turned-actress, and ‘star’ of Robin Thicke's ‘Blurred Lines’ music video, made appearances on the red carpets at three premieres for ‘We Are Your Friends’ in the cities of London, Paris and Hollywood – all looking beyond HAWT

In London. Emily wore an electric blue David Koma A/W’15 dress with a Monique Lhullier ‘Stella’ clutch and Giueseppe Zanotti heels.  With her hair pulled into a ponytail, she really allowed the striking dress to do the talking and exuded high fashion.  In Paris, Emily once again pulled out all the stops and wore a shimmering jade fringed Balmain dress, which not only showed off THOSE legs in all their glory, but also brought a touch of rock’n’roll to the glamourous proceedings.  Lastly, the 24-year-old wore a show-stopping, plunging (welllll, it was bound to happen at some point) Maria Lucia Hohan Grecian style gown, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and carried a rose gold clutch by Treesie. Red Carpet High Fives all round Emily! 


Musical Moment: Lily Allen ('It's Hard Out There')

Just when we thought it was safe to relax, sit back, tear in eye, and enjoy a more sereneLily Allen singing Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’  in the John Lewis Christmas advert(as an aside… are that bear and the hare actually an item?!) the singer goes and releases the track, Hard Out Here,’ knocking us for six.  No, Lily has not become the all sugary sweet, apron wearing, strawberry jam-making, mother of two John Lewis would have us believe!  Still a feminist to her core, this week Lily released a casual evisceration of the pop music industry sexism we have, particularly of late (thanks Miley and Robin) had violently twerked in our faces.  Lily’s song is a sarcastic take on body image and the outlandish expectations projected upon women, the ridiculous phenomenon of twerking and the horrendous double standards women still seem to endure.  I love the subversive swipe atRobin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ balloons and the liberal use of the word ‘bitch’ repetitively sung alongside the catchy tune - another statement against its unimpressive overuse in popular culture.  Yes.  Just Yes.  Welcome back Lily.

Don’t need to shake my ass for you ‘cuz I got a brain..."
