Guys, do you like style and music? If so, we recommend you booking tickets to the next Milan Fashion Week (And if you can’t do that, then you need to watch the shows online)

Milan is the city where fashion meets music and both as influential as the other.

We are pleased to announce that our favourite woman in music, Nicki Minaj has become the face of Roberto Cavalli’s spring/summer 2015 advertising campaign.

Shot in the glamorous shores of Los Angeles, the campaign features Nicki Minaj in a range of gorgeous silk dresses boasting Snap ColourPop worthy animal and floral prints. The colourful scene of fire orange, blue, saffron yellow and green mirrors the summer season.

Roberto Cavalli comments: ‘I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman. In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes. With this campaign, I wanted to send a strong countertrend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves, rather she make them as a strength.’

gowns in saturated shades, to cleanly-cut jumpsuits and androgynous separates, our Dressed To Kill feature celebrates the art of dressing up.

As the evenings draw in, welcome a new-found chance to shine in the most captivating party pieces. Whether you’re in search of a high-impact cocktail dress for a star-studded party, a precision-cut jumpsuit for a late night soirée, or a show-stopping gown to welcome the New Year in style, Reiss have dedicated their Dressed To Kill feature to the most exquisite evening attire from our high street favourite, Reiss.

Scattered throughout the collection are vintage-inspired accents and decadent flourishes; each opulent detail denoting an air of old world glamour. Precision-cut tailoring and sheer separates speak of the minimal ’90s, while embellished LBDs and tactile cover-ups reference 1930s elegance. These are the trophy pieces that call for moments of drama and intrigue.

With long, dark nights offering the perfect backdrop to the most decorative pieces – metallic trims and gilded jewels send starbursts of light as you move – now is the time to dress up with a whirlwind romance in mind.

Nuala Gorham started her beautiful blog Penny and Polaroids, a visual journal of her personal style, fashion and beauty from her home country of Irlend. Her recent visit to London has not only given us a reminder of how lucky we to live in such a beautiful city but also a few hip hideouts that even the locals may not have spotted.

Read what happened when Snap caught up with the girl behind the lens….

So you have just arrived to London, business or pleasure?

Business, it’s always business in London! I’m over for the Primark
Spring 15 press preview which I attended earlier today, while I love Winter and London has such an amazing Christmas vibe at the moment, I loved the escapism of viewing all the beautiful Spring pieces. Primark has a very impressive collection in store for us all.

Tell us what’s in your suitcase for a December break in London… 

A Primark black wool and leather-look coat and a huge grey faux fur collar. I also have an oversized roll neck knit, brown leather trousers, my Michael Kors bag and over the knee boots. I’ve also brought New Balance for travelling.

Where’s your favourite place to stay? 

I was very spoilt on this particular trip as I’m staying in Hotel Café Royal which is utterly beautiful. Regent Street is my favourite street in London, I adore the architecture and you really get to experience the hustle and bustle of London here. The hotel has a very Christmas feel at the moment, it’s very warm and cosy- the perfect haven from the busy and cold streets.

What’s the one thing you have to do in London every time before leaving.. 

I’m obsessed with Pret a Manager’s Falafel wrap so I’ll always grab one when I’m on the go! Fashion week is always so busy so I don’t get to enjoy a really lovely meal always, it’s always grab and go for lunch time so now I feel like I always need to stop by there. I also make sure to have one really nice meal out with drinks as there are so many amazing restaurants here.

Favourite place to shop when in London… 

& Other Stories, We don’t have it in Ireland so I always try and make a quick stop off there. I also love the Topshop on Oxford street and Zara Home – even though I never the space in my luggage to bring things home!

Cab, Walk, Or London Transport kind of girl? 

If I can walk at all I usually will. This year for fashion weeks we walked pretty much everywhere which was really lovely because you see so much more. Strand, where LFW is based, is such a beautiful area. This trip however was very busy and not everywhere was nearby so I took cabs everywhere, I try and avoid the underground if I can.

Favourite building in London…

There are so many to choose from. I love the Big Ben and that whole area is really beautiful. I would have loved to visit the ice skating rink at Somerset House on this trip but sadly there wasn’t time, I’d imagine it’s amazing!

And when are you visiting us next? We’re guessing your going to be back for LFW? 

Of course! I’ll be back in February for Fashion Week I’m sure if not before then. I have a list of places I want to go to and dine in, I’ve not yet had the time to visit the Covent Gardens so that’s on my list for my next trip (and to visit Ladurée there!)
