Starlet Fever

A new label has burst into the curvy Australian market providing vintage inspired women's clothing designed and manufactured in Australia. Creating amazing silhouettes for women with curves to kill and giving women the styles that are both classy and sexy.

Starlet lives by the motto - "Don't be like the rest of them, Darling!" which means you won't find these designs in a mall or outlet store and this is one of the main reasons I love them! With a focus on quality fabrics, flawless tailoring and stunning prints the outfit options are endless as they stock both skirts, blouses, tops, tailored pants and more formal dresses.

I first noticed Starlet Fever through the ever so stunning Stefania Ferrario who is the face and body for their first look book. Shot in a stunning retro cinema location this bold and brilliant set of images made my heart flutter and I could not wait to see what the full range looked like. Starlet Fever's size range is from 8 to 18 and with each listed item you will find a full size chart and specific measurements for each model shown. I love this feature as it gives you more of a specific idea of fit.


Outfit 1 : 

A figure hugging bombshell styled floral dress designed for women with curves in all the right places. The perfect style for an hourglass shape as it highlights all your best features. The stunning floral fabric makes this the perfect evening dress or special occasion outfit. 

Outfit 2 : 
Claudine Pants Black - $150.00 AUD

Effortless chic is the first description that pops into mind when looking at this perfectly paired outfit. Super flattering high waisted black pants with a pop of leopard print on top. The perfect day to night time outfit as you could pair this with flats to shop then slip into a pair of killer heels and head out for the evening.


Outfit 1 :

Claudine Pants Indigo - $150.00 AUD

Number 1 on my lust list from Starlet Fever has to be the Antoinette Blouse! I'm a sucker for a 1940's style blouse and the bust flattering style means that I don't have to compromise with fit. I adore shirts this for both work or play and I love how this looks both with a wiggle skirt or with the brilliant Claudine pants. The Claudine pant comes in Black, Black Pinstripe, Navy and Red and is a core style for any vintage lovers wardrobe. The high waist focusing on all the little details insures a great flattering fit and each outfit highlights your waist. The number one thing I look for when shopping. 
Outfit 2 : 

Marie Day Dress Maroon - $170.00 AUD

Another version of the Marie Day dress but this time in a solid Maroon colour. While I adore the floral version there is something so very lush and old Hollywood glam about the rich Maroon fabric used in this dress. The outfit is completed perfectly with retro styled accessories and I love how the fabric colour pairs with the white fur. 


Outfit 1 :

Starlet Fever also offer a huge selection of wiggle skirts! With a selection of fabrics to take you right through the year the Adelaide in black floral is the perfect skirt for Spring/Summer. If you are a curvy woman the one item you need above all in your collection is the perfect wiggle skirt. I've search for years and I've tested them all. While I still need to test these I can say after seeing Stefania wearing these styles that they are a proper fit and focus on the tailoring aspect not just the fabric. This floral style is a great number for work or cocktails and can be paired with items like the Delphine top for a more work appropriate look. A low cut top for evening wear or even a simple black tank and flats for summer day time wear. 

I love the bright pop of colour that comes with the Delphine top and this like many of the tops available comes in multiple colour ways.

Outfit 2 : 

Second on my lust list - This outfit! There is something so effortlessly stunning about a perfectly created scoop neck 3/4 sleeve top when paired with a woolen pencil skirt. I've been hunting high and low for tops like this and I'm so excited to be able to photograph both of these items next month!! Yes you'd be getting a full review of my stand out favourite items from their range! 

I'm also loving the woolen plaid print as I've never owned anything in this colour way before. The styling options are endless and I can't wait to create a full winter look with these items. 


Outfit 1 :

Every woman needs a little black dress but every woman also needs a little red dress that when worn will knock everyone socks off! High risk? Yes, a high risk of getting you noticed for all of the best reasons. Curve hugging and simply stunning without showing too much skin, the Eleanor dress is for a really special occasion as it will give you amazing shape and make you stand out in the crowd. This dress is bold enough to only need an amazing pair of heels and a stunning brooch to complete the whole look. 
Outfit 2 : 

Finally we have the Wilhelmina Gown in a stunning Ivory print. This gown is a classic 50's shape swing dress made 100% silk is awe inspiring and luxury at it's finest. The Wilhelmina is the signature style from from Starlet Fever and is that quintessential formal gown for any vintage lovers. The boat neck and low v shaped back makes this style perfect for all body shapes and sizes. So if you have curves or not you will look amazing in this dress!

It's so great to see a vintage inspired brand that has such a focus on fit, tailoring and creating luxury products all made here in Australia. I will be shooting and reviewing a few of favourite styles next month so be sure to come back and see all of the fit details. I only hope I can look as amazing as Stefania does in these! All images shown were taken by Cupcake Photography and I'm in love with their style. Here's hoping we can work together one day!
