Tall Star Style: Liv Tyler 5ft 10

After featuring 5ft 10 Kate Middleton in the first 'Tall star style' I am now presenting to you the second installement.  I did think about featuring Princess Diana (who would be Kate Middleton's Mother-in-law if she was still alive).  I found out the other day that Princess Di was 5ft 10 too!  Strange coincidence!

Today I saw a lovely picture of Liv Tyler and remembered that she is 5ft 10.  NOT all of these posts will be 5ft 10 celebrities, but I thought I would start the first posts at this height to fit in with the blog name!

Live Tyler is the daughter of model Bebe Buell and Areosmith frontman Steve Tyler.  No wonder she is so stunningly beautiful and tall!


Live doesn't always get it right in some people's eyes, but always embraces what she wears.  She fluctuates between classic chic heeled pumps, tights, dress and mac combination, and hippy inspired floral / loud prints.  I guess that is the result of her mum's classic model style, and her dad's hedonistic, indulgent band persona!
 DKNY dress, Givenchy bag, Louboutin shoes
Givenchy jacket, Proenza bag, Chloe Sevigny tights, Weitzman boots
 Liv at the Met wearing..... Givenchy.

Here she is during a shopping trip to Aedes wearing simple flats, denim dress and navy cardigan.

Daily Mail
Liv wearing Louboutin pumps (again) and a clever hourglass shaped dress by Stella McCartney- see how the black panels give the illusion of a smaller waist?

She likes to hint at classic style and vintage hair/makeup, but most pictures seem to show her hair down and natural when she is 'off duty'.
Of course, most makeup artists will make a feature of her full lips!

Shops at
High end designer mostly unfortunately.
Givenchy- well she is a brand ambassador and singing for their new ad!
It's actually been hard to find evidence of other designers Liv likes!

Places like;

Liv is quoted as liking European style such as Isabel Marant, G-Star and Alexander McQueen.
At any rate, most of it is high end designer, rather than vintage or high street.

Christian Louboutin!
Ballet flats 

This has been a tough one to research and compose.  Not much to go on, but mostly pieces we could only dream of seeing, let a lone wearing!  Can you find Liv in any 'high street' pieces?  Zara, Topshop, River Island, Forever 21? No? Me neither!!
I like her vintage Tea dresses style, but I think that as she works for Givenchy, she probably has to wear their outfits a lot!  One to admire and file I think!

 Any thoughts on Liv's Style?

P.s. Don't forget, lots of giveaways on the other blog for Christmas!

Clothes Show: OOTD

Yesterday I visited The Clothes Show in Birmingham, courtsey of Diet Coke.  I have done a preliminary post on my adventures on my Beauty Blog so feel free to have a nose!

I thought I would do a little Outfit of the Day post here.  I look a bit evil but its one of two photos I have of me there and this is the less blurry of the two :(

Shoes (Out of shot) Brown Many Janes from Clarks.  Low heel, very comfy!  I was on my feet all day and only once did they start to ache.

Black Leggins H&M

Denim Jacket (which fits perfectly on a tall-y like me H&M (Last season, but they do sometimes do other jackets in this style.  Its skims the hips, but has the right length arms.  Thank you H&M!  (It looks a bit odd in the picture due to my gigantic underarm bag...)

Ditsy Print Meadow Tea Dress French Connection.  It was about 3 inches longer but the care label said the wrong washing instructions :( I keep trying to stretch it back each time I wear it!  They do other colours and prints in this style each year and they retail for around £50.  Worth checking on this time of year to try and pick up light wear bargains!

Grey crotchet short sleeve cardigan / waistcoat (just poking out from under the jacket). This just added an extra layer for the cold outdoors, but didnt make me overheat indoors!

Bag: My beloved Topshop bowling bag.  I can fit an elephant in there.  It was around £40

Red tips to the ends of my hair will be revealed on my beauty blog soon :)

It was a fun day- I did buy some clothes (which I will share at some point).  I also saw one girl who was about 6ft 5.  I think she was one of only 2 people I saw who were naturally taller than me- but I actually enjoyed being tall at this show- I could see into the stands over people's heads ;)

What did you do this weekend?  Are OOTD posts appreciated here?

P.s. I have 12 days of giveaways on my beauty blog for Christmas, and any 5foot10 readers are more than welcome to enter them by leaving a comment.  It's just my way of saying 'thank you'!
