Epic Pale: See How To Do Pastels The Cool Way In Grazia’s Fashion Film

Pastels pack a subtle punch this spring, from sorbet shades to mellow knits. In this week’s issue we show you how to do pastels the cool way in our main fashion shoot. Grazia’s contributing fashion editor Vanessa Gillingham says, “Everyone thinks of pastels as a little bit ‘mother of the bride’. I wanted to show you can wear pastel colours in a rawer way, that they can be cool, and not dress up – more of a throw it on and wear it with attitude kind of thing.”  The story was shot by Parisian photographer Alex Brunet, new to Grazia, in an incredible pale blue apartment in London. As for the clothes, we have icy Rochas, cool Dior and Victoria Beckham in sorbet shades.

They are the J Brand 811, and K Mid has been spotted in them once again during the Royal Australia and New Zealand tour.

Despite buying the jeans more than three years ago from British denim retailer Trilogy, K Middy has worn her J Brands religiously ever since, for appearances all around the world and everything from boat races to Royal tours. She’s not alone either. Like many of the label’s fashionable fans including Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth and Katie Holmes, the Duchess thinks the J Brand cut is the most flattering around.

Best Dressed At Coachella: Beyonce, Cara Delevingne, Sienna Miller & More

If you’ve been anywhere near Instagram over the past 24 hours you will know a little thing called Coachella has started. The palm tree and cactus emojis are back people. Forget mud-splattered jeans and burger vans like at Glastonbury, at Coachella the festival go-ers wear wedges and eat vegan falafel. Wellies and palm trees don’t exactly go.

Coachella is the most festy of all of the festivals, as floral headbands and cut-off shorts are the uniform. Here you’ll spot Isabel Marant boots and Chanel handbags in the crowds – so what have the stars been wearing for the first two days of the festival?
