This week has been so chock-full with fashion happenings anyone would think spring had really kicked into action. Oh wait, it HAS! From the sunshine spells that have prompted us to get our S/S 16 on, through to two of the biggest A-list fashion launches arriving within mere hours of each other, there's much to catch up on if you've been in back-to-back meetings or permanently sans wifi.

Scroll down to get the skinny on this week's most significant style news...

1. Two major stars went head-to-head on the high street, with Beyoncé introducing her debut Ivy Park range and Alexa Chung's look into the M&S archive becoming available. The two ranges may look worlds apart, but many a girl will want both in her shopping basket.

4. We found out what it takes to be an über-blogger—and it's really not easy.
