Get the Look: George Lamb – Jamie Tuohy

More Matter Jamie

TV and radio presenter George Lamb is a well recognized figure in the world of showbiz today, not least for his authentic and innovative sense of style.  Lamb is an aficionado when it comes to dressing and his silver haired English dandy look has become his signature.

George Lamb has topped numerous best dressed lists over the years and the success of his style resides in his ability to play with a trend and add his own instinctive flair to make the look unique and definitively his own. As a business partner to designer Adrien Sauvage, Lamb’s suits are naturally exquisitely tailored. When he’s not donning a three piece, George’s casual style is equally as dapper – combining loafers, pink trousers, neck ties and blazers. Here’s how to get his look :

Adele is Rolling in The Money – Jamie Tuohy

From her humble beginnings in Tottenham to her meteoric rise to global superstardom, it’s no surprise that the incredibly talented Adele Laurie Blue Adkins has become known simply by her first name. Since the release of her first album, 19 in 2008, the British soul singer has been a prominent player in the music world, earning a plethora of awards and accolades.

However, she is probably best known for her record breaking 2011 album 21 which produced the now iconic songs like Rolling In The Deep and Someone Like You. The album became the UK’s best selling record of the 21st century and took America by storm, becoming the longest running number one album in Billboard chart history. With copious amounts of Brits and Grammys under her belt, it’s no great surprise that Adele has been named THE RICHEST MUSICIAN UNDER 30 in 2012, by The Sunday Times Rich List.

Minted - Adele is now worth a cool £20million

With an estimated worth of a cool £20million, 2012 has most certainly been the year of Adele. The London songbird managed to beat Cheryl Cole, Katie Melua and Leona Lewis to the top spot,  all of whom featured in joint second place with equally impressive fortunes of £12million.

However, Adele is all about the music – she is down to earth, humble, funny and unfazed by her status, so like the true musician she is, I’m sure her fortune is secondary to her love of music.

Last night’s 84th Annual Academy Awards saw 17 times nominated Meryl Streep scoop the “Best Actress” gong for her chillingly uncanny performance as Margaret Thatcher in Harvey Weinstein’s The Iron Lady.

It was a fantastic night for Weinstein, with both his movies The Artist and The Iron Lady winning some of the night’s top awards, including “Best Picture” for The Artist – a silent movie, described as a ‘love letter to Old Hollywood’. Jean Dujardin, the star of the Micel Hazanavicius directed film also took home the award for “Best Actor”, making him the first French-man to win Hollywood’s most prestigious accolade.

However, the night belonged to Streep, who finally received the Oscar, thirty years after winning her first “Best Actress Award” for her portrayal of a Polish immigrant in Sophie’s Choice. Despite being the most nominated actress in the history of the Academy Awards, this is Streep’s third Oscar win, previously claiming the “Best Supporting Actress” award for her performance as Joanna in Kramer vs. Kramer.

Dressed in a gold lamé Lanvin gown, Meryl looked sensational as she accepted her award, saying that most Americans are probably thinking “Oh no, not her again”, but in classic Streep wit, retaliated with “whatever!” Thanking her husband Roy for giving her “everything we value most in our lives”, she also paid tribute to her colleagues and her friends both “departed and here”.

Meryl Streep has previously been nominated for Academy Awards for her performances in movies like Ironweed, The Devil Wears Prada, Doubt and Julie & Julia. A typically gracious and humbled Streep acknowledged the friendships she has made throughout her “inexplicably wonderful career” and on stage last night, she admitted that this would probably be the last time she’ll be “up here again”.

Somehow, Ms. Streep, I doubt that!

Meryl, we bow down to you!
