Nearly sixty years ago something happen that never happened before and hasn’t happened since. There was a media frenzy – they called it the British invasion. But we weren’t invaded by Britain, so what happened? The Beatles officially made their everlasting mark on the world. The British boy band and musical sensation had the honor of having five of their songs top the Billboard Hot 100 at one time. What’s more impressive is that these songs weren’t just scattered about the top 100, they were the top five. Their success sparked the popularity of other British acts in the U.S and around the world including Dusty Springfield and The Rolling Stones. In the United States today we have many stylish British Stars but which could start a fashion invasion sparking us to follow their trends?
Keira Knightley and Diane Von Furstenberg Roxanne
With Knight in her last name, it seems fitting that Keira could lead a fashion invasion. The British actress of “Pirates of the Caribbean” fame is seen here at a photo call looking effortlessly chic. Her shirt dress has just the right accents with it’s big buttons and brown belt. She pairs the dress with shades and brown loafer style heels similar to the Diane Von Furstenberg Roxanne. These Diane Von Furstenberg pumps are perfect for work and for casual events. Keira is one of the wealthiest stars in the U.K so she could definitely afford a closet to envy.
Alexa Chung and Roberto Festa Sara
Could it be the quirky British model, Alexa Chung? Here she looks fresh and funky in a menswear suit with some feminine details. It’s not a look for everyone, but she can definitely pull it off. The suit looks great with black patent pumps similar to the Roberto Festa Sara. The classic, elegant Roberto Festa pumps will dress up denim or pair perfectly with a little black dress. Alexa models, hosts a fashion related show, “24 Hour Catwalk” on the Lifetime Channel and is a contributing editor for British Vogue. Her versatility amazes us, as does the versatility of these great polished pumps.
Emma Watson and Diane Von Furstenberg Bang
Maybe British actress Emma Watson could lead the fashion invasion. We’ve seen Emma grow from a cute kid into a well dressed woman, and the transition has been impressive. She went from playing the brainy Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” series to becoming a style maven who exudes classiness and confidence. She describes her ideal look as understated drama and we think she does it right with her sexy but subtle cutout dress and nude pointed pumps similar to the Diane Von Furstenberg Bang. You’ll knock em’ dead in these Diane Von Furstenberg heels!
