Guest blogger Lena Mae brings you STREET STYLE with Kylie!

Hallo meine Favouriten! I return with another style crush for you, this time it's the gorgeous Kylie.

Yeeeah ok not THAT Kylie, but this one is just as adorable I promise! I met her in Yorkshire last weekend, she was working backstage at a show I was performing at and I was in awe of her presence from the get go. Not only was such an incredible sweetheart, but her outfit popped and I was instantly jealous of her drag inspired style.

*As an aside, unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me, so had to use my telephone in this particular vogue emergency, please excuse the quality of photographs. *

Let's GO! Check out this jumpsuit :

LOVE IT. Bright reds, yellow and greens. Tapered leg, pluuuunging neckline. And if that wasn't enough, Kylie wore a few shades of bright green eyeshadow. She said I knew I had to clash, so green had to be main colour. I have always had a strong fascination with make up and never felt "pretty". Studying countless MUAs and being around drag queens of old I have started to go for big drama with my make up.'

For your info.. The jumpsuit is from and the gorgeous golden footwear shoes are Anna Sholz for Simply Be; 'A bloody bargain reduced to £18'

Next stop, that enormous flower in her hair. Approximately the same size as her head. That's the way to do it.

I do enjoy a good bit of head garnish, and the drama of Kylie's made me so happy. Check out where she got it..THRIFY ACCESSORIZERS take note!

'I knew I wanted an extravaganza look to go with the garish jumpsuit. I raided my local garden center. Got the old glue gun out et voila. Massive shit off hair piece.'

So eloquent! Balancing out the 'shit off hair piece' was a mountain of hair on the other side. We're talking uber volume. We're talking Victorian madame out hawking for business type volume. Genius. Here's how she created it :

'My hair was flumped by the addition of a 3/4 wig simply for volume. If you need a hand getting fat hair, use a wig. I bloody love having mahoosive hair. Hate wash day as have to brush all the back comb out!'

For those make-up junkies having a read, I found out which brands Kylie used to create her look. Don't say I never give you anything :

'For this look I used just two brands. Elizabeth Arden double wear foundation and my NYX all you ever need palette - contains eyeshadows, contour palette etc Oh and my lips were lined using Illamsqua pencil then topped with Boujois Velvet lip stain in Ole Flamingo.'

And lets have a final look at the whole she-bang in it's full length glory :

Bloody Lovely.

A little added info, the show I was part of was www, and I highly recommend it. You can read a little more about me at, if you like! 

Auf wiedersehen for now! Lena x
