Style Off: Shine vs Shinier
Take heed, all. If you have not yet succumbed to the shine trend that is taking over the high street and department stores alike, it’s best you give in now.
We implore you to take inspiration from the fashion stylings of Coleen McLoughlin (on a night out at The Living Room in Manchester) and Alex Curran (on the red carpet at the Brits.)

We’ll pause for you to quickly lather up a roll of aluminium foil with bacon grease and dust it with seven shades of glitter for extra sparkle. Pop that around your mid-section and don’t forget to turn a large bag of crisps inside out for a stylish (and delicious) handbag.
How does one choose between these two outfits for the Shiny Style Off? You don’t – you find a way of wearing them both – wrap Alex’s dress around your head and you’re good to go with a rather delectable headdress of sorts.
Side note: after the Brits, Alex hit London clubs Movida and Paper with her mate Gary Cockerill. There are shots of Ms. C’s under-carriage on circulation (unfortunately taken by paparazzi whilst she was getting drunkenly out of a car), but we’re not posting ‘em. She is wearing underwear, though so that’s something to be thankful for.
Oh, okay, you can see one here.
