My Style: All That Glitters

Ella Cocos Tea Party Sequin Bomber Jacket

Apparently I’ve built up a bit of a reputation for being a rom-com queen. Last week I went to see The Bodyguard Musical with Next and a group of my favourite bloggers, and no one could believe I’ve never seen the Whitney Houston movie. In fairness it’s probably the only iconic chick-flick I haven’t watched a gazillion times (or at all!), but I didn’t think my confession would be met with such surprise.

Obviously I knew the general premise of the plot – famous signer falls in love with her bodyguard – so when dressing for the occasion I amped up the diva-factor with Next’s sequin bomber jacket, Louboutin stilettos and clip-in hair extensions. The end result was perhaps more Khloe Kardashian than Whitney Houston, but fun all the same…

And now that I’ve seen The Bodyguard on stage I definitely plan to watch the 1992 movie over the summer. Alexandra Burke was great in the role (so it’s a shame the musical is closing at the end of August), but there’s only one Whitney Houston and I can’t wait to see the real deal!

Do you like the look of Next’s sequin bomber jacket? How would you style it? And is The Bodyguard one of your favourite movies?

  • Amazing, love the bomber jacket! And there’s nothing wrong with a bit of Kardashian fashion. I actually haven’t seen The Bodyguard either!

    The Bodyguard is really nice, yes you should totally watch the 1992 movie. It’s one of those movies that we absolutely have to watch at least once in our lives. hahah

    you have to see the film The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston…a favorite of a lot of people. Sequins and bomber jacket does not compute to me. Jacket looks to sporty regardless if there is sequins….the dress is very nice.
