Best Dressed July 2014

With summer well and truly under way July was a great fashion month. Gallery exhibitions and Wimbledon provided excellent celebrity style displays. Pink was a big colour trend sported last month by Suki Waterhouse, J Lo, Jessica Alba and Abbey Clancy.  Summer floras and prints were also prominent. From causal to uber-chic July did not disappoint us style hunters!

There’s nothing I love more than Fashionable couples! Acting and singing duo Samantha Barks and new BF Richard Fleeshman attended the London event. Samantha wore a metallic sparkling Lanvin dress and heels to match. Richard kept it stylish in a white shirt almost denim/navy suit and navy suede loaders. Celeb couple of the moment Bradley Cooper and Suiki Waterhouse looked stylish at the event. Suki wearing  a soft pink Burberry dress and TopShoe shoes, Bradley wearing a suit and blue shirt. Keira Knightley and husband James Righton also attended the event together. Keira wore mishmash Chanel dress. I have seen some harsh criticism for this dress online but I quite like the three-dresses-in-one look on Keira. James looked very smart in a suit and dickiebow.

Alexa Chung, Princess Beatrice and Cara Delevingne

Models Alexa Chung and Cara Delevingne both wore black. Alexa Wore a beautiful strapless structured Erdem dress while Cara wore a Mulberry dress with keyhole detailing on the chest. Princess Beatrice looked lovely in  a stunning white Nicholas Oakwell number. Too add some interest and youth to the look Beatrice added lilac strappy heels.

Gemma Arterton, Pharell Williams and Sarah Jessica Parker

Gemma Arterton looked red hot in a matching two piece Prabal Guran skirt and crop top at the event. Gemma’s hair and makeup match the sexiness of this outfit. A real stand-out for me! Singer Pharrell Williams brought his famous hat out again at the gallery. Wearing ripped skinny jeans, runners (no socks), a blazer and white printed t, Mr Williams is the epitome of cool. SJP lived up to her fashion icon status in a frapper style Naeem Khan dress. She finished the look with black shoes and a poker straight hairdo.

Wimbledon 2014

David and Victoria Beckham, Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshaw, Christine Blekely and Frank Lampard

Not long after celebrating 15 years of marriage together David and Victoria Beckham were seen in the Royal Box to watch the Men’s singles final. Victoria is wearing, you guessed it, Victoria Beckham Resort 2015. David looks preppy chic in a cream and navy Ralph Lauren suit combo. Newly engaged Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshaw attended the Lawn Tennis club together, Eddie wore a snazzy Alexander Mc Queen suit and lace tie! Hannah matched in a denim dress. Christine Bleakely and Frank Lampard looked stylish as they prepared to take their seats in the royal box at Wimbledon. Christine looked summery in a long polkadot skirt with white top and shoes. Frank looked very smart in a navy three-piece suit and brown shoes.

 Anna Wintour, Kate Middleton and David Beckham

Vogue editor in chief, Anna Wintour wore a summery floral number to watch the tennis. As always her hair was in her perfectly coiffed signature bob. Kate Middleton re-wore this Jonathan Saunders aqua green printed dress to the Men’s final as she attended with Prince William. David Beckham made a solo appearance to the tennis wearing Ralph Lauren again! I love the mustard and brown combo. He is one very well dressed man!

 Dior Couture Show Paris

A stylish troop of ladies attended the fashion houses’ show in Paris last month, all wearing Dior, of course. Emma Watson wore a black and white structured silk dress with sheer skirt with half circles. She styled the dress with white pointed shoes and a black clutch. Brand ambassador Jennifer Lawrence made a rare public appearance at the show. She wore an elegant silk scarf top and white high-waisted suede skirt, pairing them with pointed black and white shoes. Newly married Olivia Palermo wore a black  button skirt, two-tone jacket and a printed green blouse combo to attend the show. The brands most famous face Charlize Theron glittered in  a tight gold mini with strappy golden heels.

Summer Lovin’

Jessica Alba, Poppy Delevingne and Reese Witherspoon

Jessica Alba was spotted in a MaxMara outfit in Santa Monica. I love this get-up! The purple jeans and pale pink  blazer perfectly compliment each other, a look  that would work well in either summer or winter. Poppy Delevigne was in Paris last month attending the Bulgari Cocktail party. Poopy wore a white lace dress with pointed white and gold shoes. She added a denim blazer with interesting curves to make her outfit more casual. Reese Witherspoon was seen looking summery and professional as she left her offices in LA. I love the length of this top and skirt and the coloured bag brings some life to the outfit.

Black is the Colour

Taylor Swift, Nina Dobrev and Olivia Palermo

Going dotty in NYC, Taylor Swift rocked a brassiere crop top with a matching split knee length skirt to beat the city heat. I love Taylor’s green box bag. A young and fun outfit. Actress Nina Dobrev was spotted many time last month at various fashion shows in Paris, the lucky girl! Here Nina is pictured at Elie Sabb wearing a rockier look of a long flowy skirt with black heels, leather jacket and sheer top. Also attending the Elie Sabb Paris Show, newly married Olivia Palermo. Olivia looked her usual super-stylish-self in floral printed skinny jeans, a tailored blazer and white top.

Pretty in Pinks

Abbey Clancey, JLo, Keira Knightley

Abbey Clancy, Jennifer Lopez and Keira Knightley

Model Abbey Clancy was papped in London in a pretty pink long sleeved dress.  I loved the pouting-pink-lip details on the sheer sleeves. Sadly the black shoes let this outfit down for me but apart from that Abbey looks like she could have just stepped off a runway. At the League of United Latin American Citizens’ National Convention for the Empowerment of Latinos in New York, J Lo wore a stunning pink Zuhair Murad look wearing a silk blouse with floral-embroidered appliqués and a peplum tea length pencil skirt. This is my favourite look from July, I think Jennifer looks like the epitome of elegance in this dress and her hairdo and minimal accessories add to the elegance. A barefaced Keira Knightley was photographed in a floral colourful  dress leaving a London restaurant with husband James. Keira also sported a black classic Chanel bag and gladiator sandals. Very summery!

Toni Garn, Anna Camo and Ashley Tisdale

Toni Garn, Anna Camp and Ashley Tisdale

German model, Toni Garn looked great in a green Elie Sabb gownn as she attended the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation event last month. As always Elie Sabb gowns are a perfect redcarpet choice, I  love the neckline and  minimal accessories. Anna Camp looked fab as she made an appearance at the Young Hollywood Awards. This dress is so on trend with the lace, bow and then plain structured skirt. Anna also went for a fun red lip and leopard print shoes to make the overall look occasion appropriate. Ashley Tisdale, also at the Young Hollywood Awards stunned in a white and silver midi dress. Again, I really like the neckline of this dress and the strappy silver shoes.

Best Dressed August 2013

The VMA’s, the Teen Choice Awards and press calls. It’s time to look back at August’s best dressed Guys and Gals! Even out and about, these celebrities managed to look effortlessly chic and runway ready.

The Teen Choice Awards

TroianGabbyChelsea TCA

Troian Bellisario, Gabby Douglas, Chelsea Kane

Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario looks stunning in this lace, off white, sheer number. Troian kept her hair in a simple ponytail. An excellent choice to best show off this beautiful dress.

Chelsea Kane opted for this season’s hottest trend, the crop top. The crop top and highwaisted pencil skirt combo looks elegant on Chelsea. The turquoise, blue and green colour scheme brings life to the traditionally black and white dogtooth pattern.

Olympian Gabby Douglas keeps it young and fun on the red carpet with her yellow cut out mini-dress. The patterns make an otherwise plan dress interesting and eye-catching. Her pink floral shoes work perfectly  to compliment the yellow in her dress.

NinaDobrev ShayMitchTAC2013

Nina Dobrev, Shay Mitchell

Shay Mitchell, another Pretty Little Liar’s cast memeber, rocked monochrome in this plunging one piece. The lime shoes add a fun feel to the outfit, perfect for the TCA’s.

Nina Dobrev also opted for a similar look sporting a paint-splattered pant suit with plenty of cleavage and a neon orange clutch.

One Direction, Liam Louis Zayn Niall Harry

The One Direction boys matched one another in varying light and dark denim. Harry Styles even sported a hat walking down the red carpet! Niall Horan opted for the Top Gun look with his RayBans and brown jacket.  Zayn and Liam went for denim shirts while Louis looked smart in a tweed jacket.

Selena Gomez, Girl About Town

SelenaGomez

Selena Gomez

To celebrate her 21st birthday, Selena donned a white studded crop top and white high wasited shorts. Later in the month Selena wore this seasons hottest colour, army green.  Her sleeveless denim shirt and black ankle zip jeans work perfectly with her buckle jeans and Chanel handbag. The perfect autumn outfit!

White Wonders

Candadian actress Serina Swan dressed in white at the Somaly Mam event in California. Serina looks super elegant in this sheer number. The verdict is still out on the odd length of this dress but the dress itself is bang on trend.

Kate Hudson looked angelic as ever in this amazing Antonia Berandi white halter neck, lace number. Does Kate ever dress badly? If she’s finished with this dress I’d be happy to take it off her hands…

SerinaKatekCavKloKar

Serina Swan, Kate Hudson, Kristen Cavallari, Khloe Kardashian

Kristin Cavallari wore white while promoting her shoe collection for Chinese Laundry at the MAGIC Market Week in Las Vegas, August 20th.  Kristen’s cobalt blue shoes are on the money! For the winter months this blue is going to be everywhere.

Khloe Kardashian works an off white, verging on grey, top with white skinny jeans. Her grey floppy hat is a gorgeous accessory! She has even co-ordinated her Starbuck to match her yellow bag. A great outfit for shopping or lunching with friends.

Print, Print, Print

ACJAJC

Alexa Chung, Jessica Alba, Jamie Chung

Alexa Chung was out and about in NYC on August 24th wearing a printed Kenzo dress. I’m not too pushed on the Granny sandals but I’ll let it slide this time. The floral print works well for these last few days of summer sunshine.

Jessica Alba pairs a multicoloured floral print blouse which she accentuates with a bright yellow blazer, skinny black jeans and pink shoes. The oversize handbag and ultra-bright  blue shades are effortlessly chic.

TV personality Jamie Chung makes the print trend wearable with these floral shorts. She keeps its casual with a denim jacket and white, knitted top with matching grey suede boots and bag. Another great outfit for a day’s shopping.

MCOPKC

Miranda Kerr, Olivia Palermo, Kristin Cavallari

Miranda Kerr looks flawless as ever in a Topshop printed skirt, ideal for summertime,  nude heels, white tee and bright pink Louis Vuitton mini-cambridge-esque bag.

Fashionista Olivia Palermo retains her It Girl status with this perfect black and white printed dress. Olivia added a pop of colour with an Aztec necklace and pink handbag. The leopard shoes surprisingly work well with this combo. Another stellar outfit choice Miss Palermo!

Kristin Cavallari makes it onto the list again. This time it’s for her blue and white printed trousers. This girl sure knows how to dress well!

Monochrome

Stacey Keibler wore black and white casual jean suit this month. The simple red shoes help bring this outfit from boring to stylish. A great outfit choice for a day of meetings or a day at the office.

KKSK

Karlie Kloss, Stacey Kiebler

Model of the moment Karlie Kloss looked ravishing in monochrome on the streets of NYC this August. Karlie shows us that less is definitely more. Her black heels with above the ankle strap make add another touch of class to this minimalist outfit.

Green with Envy

Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton stepped out for the first time since giving birth to son George on August 30th. The Duchess and Prince William were kicking off a 135 mile marathon in North Wales. Kate wore a green Ralph Lauren blazer paired with black skinny jeans and wedges. Stunning as always, Kate!

Supermodel Elizabeth Hurly looks a million dollars in this green floor length gown at the Compare the Market press call. Way to go Liz! I hope I look this fab at 48!

In the Navy

Taylor Swift Selena Gomez

The VMA’s on August 25th caused quite a stir! Not just because of Miley Cyrus’ raunchy behaviour  but the red carpet fashion. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez looked incredible in these navy ensembles. Taylor’s Herve Leger number showed off her beautiful figure, while Selena went for an elegant navy number with intricate detail on the bust and slit up the right hand side.

NicoleScherzinger

Nicole Scherzinger displayed her newly topped up tan at the X Factor launch on August 29th. The third celeb on this list to don a one piece combo, Nicole keeps it fun with red shoes and matching yellow nails and sunnies. A stunning hairdo tops off this look.
