January 2013: Jessie J Lookbook

Ever since Jessie J found her place in the spotlight with ‘Do It Like A Dude’, I have loved and admired everything about her. Not only is her journey to success inspirational  and emotionally moving, she also has a fantastic personality hidden behind bucket-loads of talent, something quite difficult to find in celebrities these days. Jessie J’s style is unique, and hence often controversial, but in my opinion, it is when she stays true to herself that her bubbly personality is reflected by what she wears. Jessie J does not need to be told what the definition of beauty or glamour or perfection is, because, as we all know, nobody’s perfect.

Look 1 - As a judge on the first season of The Voice UK, Jessie J shone in many outfits, often bringing eccentricity and vibrancy to the stage. The jewelled skirt and crop top combination works wonders; the skirt is quite literally radiating light! Pair these with the season’s must-have, killer Jeffrey Campbell boots and the result is a look that has ‘Jessie J’ written all over it.

Look 2 - When I saw Jessie J’s choice for the red carpet of the 2012 GQ Men of the Year Awards, I firstly wanted to gasp and secondly wanting to sing “S-E-X-Y! YOU SEXY!” Although this is not your conventional, red-carpet glamour, the little touches of Jessie J - note the silver shoes - are unmissable. She is, however, bang on trend, with a seductive blend of tailoring, a thigh - high split, sequined collars and red lipstick.

Look 3 - What I love about Jessie J is that despite her quirky, original sense of style, she can still pull off a conventionally glamorous red carpet look. She stepped out in this Julien MacDonald lace number for the 2011 Mobo Awards, the detailing of which was simply bewitching. The chunky, gold jewellery is not to be left out, because a Jessie J outfit would be incomplete without her own kooky additions.

Look 4 - Hands down one of the best dresses of the 2012 Grammy Awards. It seems to have been planned and executed to absolute perfection. Julien MacDonald was, again, the man to thank for putting reflective panels onto a dress and putting that dress onto Jessie J, who shone and sparkled the whole night, the way a true star should.

Look 5 - And when someone fabulous looks this good dressed-down, you know there may just be hope for the rest of us mortal beings. Spotted out on the street - style scene, Jessie J introduced a cute red beanie to a hilarious graphic t-shirt, star-printed bomber jacket and blue creepers. It is a reflection of her own lively, dynamic character that peeps out through the singer’s love of bright colours, power prints and individuality.
