Best Dressed September 2014

Incase you missed it… George Clooney got married! As always, Mr Clooney wore Armani but his gorgeous wife Amal stepped out in a variety of beautiful designer outfits for us to drool over. Including the wedding of the year, so far, September was also unofficial Fashion Month. With runways and front rows brimming with style and sophistication Paris, New York and Milan brought loads of desirable styles to the fore. Film festivals and film premières topped of the red carpet looks featured in this months best dressed list.

After what can only be described as a fairytale wedding and weekend in Italy, Amal Alamuddin became the most talked about bride of the year.  Amal wore a stunning lace Oscar de la Renta gown for her intimate ceremony. I am in love with the neckline of this dress. The off the shoulder detailing is extremely elegant and flattering. Amal was also pictured looking like a movie star in a white and navy Stella McCartney trouser, top and hat combo. To top off a fabulous weekend of outfits Amal showed off her endless legs in a floral appliqué and laceGiambattista Valli dress. Swoon!

C’est Chic

Amanda Holden, SJP and Allison Williams

Amanda Holden arrived at Claridges hotel last month is an over the knee black and white dress, paired with thin-strapped black shoes. Amanda accessorized with a chic hair do and black clutch. Sarah Jessica Parker attended the Gareth Pugh presentation in NYC in a vibrant, also over the knee, printed dress. SJP finished the look with pointed silver heels. Also in pointed heels, actress Allison Williams looked like the bell of the ball as she attended the DVF NYC show. Does this girl every get it wrong? I love the checked grey detailing. I think if Dorothy ever made it from Kansas to NYC fashion week, she would be definitely wear this dress.

All Black, Everything

Toni Garen, Allison Williams and Reece Witherspoon

Model Toni Garen wore an interesting layered black dress to a Nars launch event in NYC. I really like the vertical panel detailing on the corset which extends into a sheer skirt with horizontal strips. Allison Williams features again in another great outfit from NYC last month. This time Allison wore a tea length skirt and crop top by Vionnet with a white collar and waist band trim. Reece Withersppon attended the Toronto Film Festival for the screening of her latest flick, Wild. Reece wore a black Saint Laurent dress with a cute flowy skater skirt, off the shoulder detailing and sparkly side panel.

Film Festival Frocks

Cara Delevigne, Jessica Chastain and Kate Beckinsale

Cara Delevigne walked the not-so-red-red-carepet at the Toronto Film Festival in a full length striped green dress with a gold belt. I love this look on Cara. The multiple shades of green work well with her skin tone and hair and her makeup is classically beautiful. Kate Beckinsale, also at the Toronto Film Festival, wore a strapless nude-pink jumpsuit with subtle wrap detailing at the bust with an odd but workable piece of fabric stemming from the waist. Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain was honoured at the Deauville American Film Festival. Jessica wore a heavily embroidered Oscar de la Renta pink over the knee dress with spiky Louboutains.

Red and Silver Combos

Emily Ratajkowski, Rosie Huntington Whitley and Gwen Stefani

Did someone say Jessica Rabbit? Wow! Emily Ratajkowski attended the Gone Girl world premiere in a simply stunning red SAFiYAA dress. The minimal hair and no jewellery add to the elegance and simplicity of this look. My favourite look from last month by far! Rosie Huntington-Whitley stunned in silver as she attended the Stuart Weirzman event in Paris while Gwen Stefani wore a red power suit  with white top as she was papped between work commitments. The printed Louboutains add some fun to this work wear.

Let me know who your favourite from last month was!

Best Dressed February 2014

As is customary this time of year, it has been a great month for red carpet fashion. Awards Season is sadly drawing to a close with only the Oscars left to go. Luncheons, premières, press calls, fashion weeks all feature in this months post. Don’t forget you can see all The Brit Awards and BAFTA fashion in my last post which were also on last month.

Burberry Porsum London Fashion Week Arrivals

Singer and show performer Paloma Faith wore one of Christopher Bailey’s latest creations from the Burberry collection. Along with a matching floppy hat and coat, Paloma incorporated a printed t-shirt to her look. Cat Deeley wore an iconic Burberry trench with black skinny jeans with white shoes to the show. Poppy Delevigne also in all Burberry, wore a spotty blouse, navy dress trousers, cute green shoes and a gorgeous blue coat to pull her look together and protect her from the chilly February weather.

Harry Styles and Tinnie Tempah Burberry LFW Arrivals

Resident front row sitter at the Burberry shows, Harry Styles wore a moss green coat, grey top and his trademark skinny black jeans and Chelsea boots. Tinnie Tempah looked warm and cosy in a furry coat with black boots and jeans to match.

Fashionable Pairs

Naomi Watts & Luptia Nyong'o, Blake Lively & Rose Byrne, Suki Waterhouse & Cara Delevigne

There’s nothing I love better than stylish celebrities… but two together is even more delightful! Fashion It Girl, Lupita Nyong’o posed with Naomi Watts at the Calvin Klein show, both wearing Calvin Klein. Similarly Blake Lively and Rose Byrne both wore Michael Kors whilst attending his show. Models and BFFs’ Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevigne both wore matching Burberry suits at the Harvey  Weinstein BAFTA dinner.

Red Carpet 

Diane Kruger, Emma Watson and Sandra Bullock

Actress Diane Kruger wore a printed asymmetrical Peter Piletto dress with matching black shoes to his show. I love the long sleeves and mis-mash of prints, great for Spring. Emma Watson wore an oversized black bow dress by Giambitistta Valli to the Elle 2014 Style Awards. It’s a shame that the white lining is visable underneath an otherwise lovely dress. Oscar Nominee Sandra Bullock wore a floral number to the Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon. I think it’s a shame there is a black sheer overlay on the skirt of this dress but the red clutch and belt tie the look nicely together.

Deltra Goodrum, Lily Collins and Eva Longoria

Deltra Goodrem, Lily Collins and Eva Longoria

Aussie singer Deltra Goodrem wore a Michael Costello deep purple dress to the Third Annual AACTA Awards last month. Lily Collins attended the Lancome BAFTA party in London in a girly floral checked dress with nude shows. Meanwhile at the Global Gift Gala Eva Longoria wore a black and white Zuhair Murad gown.

Kate Bosworth, Lupita Nyong'o and Amy Adams

Kate Bosworth looked chic in silver  at the Van Cleef and Arpels store launch. Oscar Nominees Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o attended the EE BAFTA party. Lupita wore a typically taditional pink Chanel suit to the event while Amy wore an amazing white Zuhair Murad dress.

Wretch 32, Jared Letto and Matthew McConaughey

Wretch 32, Jared Letto and Matthew McConaughey

Rapper Wretch 32 looked chic and preppy in brown boat shoes, chinos and a stylish polo-neck and suit jacket combo. Personally, I love this look! It’s a brilliant alternative to the usual tux or suit option for males on a red (or blue in this case) carpet. Oscar Nominees Jared Letto and Matthew McConaughy attended a Dallas Buyers Club press event both in variations of grey. Jared let his now famous long locks hang down underneath a big hat. The grey cotton shirt, jacket, leather leggings and purple socks-black and white stripped shoes combo are another great red carpet look. Reliably, Matthew wore a smart three piece grey suit but with all black shirt and tie.

Amanda Holden, Naomi Harris and Frida Pinto

Amanda Holden attended the Manchester Britain’s Got Talent auditions in a white, navy and green, almost pixilated, dress with nude shoes. Naomi Harris looked stunning as always as she attended the London Critics Circle Film Awards. Naomi wore a fringed yellow Naeem Khan Pre Fall 2014 dress.  Very Daisy Gatsby! Model and Actress Frida Pinto attended the Chanel show in Paris. I love, love, love this purple printed dress but the shoes let this look down bags-full unfortunately.That said, Frida did coordinate her bag to match them so I’ll let this one go.

Let me know who your favourite was. Stay tuned for Oscars Fashion in the near future!
