This summer has been all about blue and white floral print. This trend has been particularly prevalent on celebrities this season. It’s easy to see why everyone has been favouring this look. Unlike many trends I think this look compliments all skin tones, shapes and sizes. Blue and white compliment each other perfectly and floral is great if you don’t want to go all out on crazy bright colours this summer.
Last month was full of red carpet fashion appearances many of which were for charity and hosted by major companies or design houses. Gold and yellows featured a lot, most notably on Blake Lively and Anna Gunn. Others to watch out for inculde Angelina Jolie and Nicola Peltz. As always there were numerous film premiers, fashion and acting awards and celebs papped out and about in their casual gear to satisfy our fashion needs.
The CFDA Awards
For a fashion awards event I have to admit I was a tiny, tiny, tiny bit disappointed with the red-carpet looks. However, Alessandra Abrosio, Blake Lively and Coco Rocha made up for the other disappointments. Victoria Secret model Alessandra Abrosio looked like a bronzed statue in this Nonoo dress with intricate detailing on the bust and waist. Fashion It Girl and actress Blake Lively wore a short golden Michael Kors dress. Blake paired the dress with numerous bangles, nude suede shoes and an interesting gold headband. Model Coco Rocha really brought the ‘fashion’ to the CFDA Awards this year! I loved the off shoulder Christian Siriano gown and hat/fascinator she wore. Granted it is summer and black and white doesn’t always fly but Coco looks so elegant and occasion appropriate.
Gucci Chime for Change Event
Beyonce attended the Gucci event held in NYC only a few days after that infamous Solange-JayZ-Lift-Showdown. And… Solange also attended! Despite this both sisters wore variations of white, a sign of peace perhaps? Bey in a white jumpsuit with a plunging V, Solange wearing wide flare, 70’s style trousers with bright orange top, also with a deep neckline. Bake makes it on the list once again for her Gucci look on this carpet.
Max Mara & W Magazine Cocktail Party
A host of georgeous ladies attended the Max Mara and W Magazine cocktail party last month. My three favourites were Sophia Bush in an eye-catching print dress including florals,stripes and colour. I love the bright blue pointed shoes and black clutch. Pregnant Stacy Keibler poped (no, not her baby) at the event. The bright yellow-green dress and simple strappy shoes Stacy is wearing proves you don’t have to be a fuddy-duddy when you’re pregnant. Bad Neighbours actress Rose Byrne looked beautiful in midnight blue. The sparkles on the studded dress and tea-length are very classy. My only fault with this look is the shoes. I think they’re a big clash with the dress. A pair of strappy heels could have been a better choice.
Samsung Hope for Children Event
NYC was also host to the Samsung Hope for Children Charity event last month. Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr wore a beautiful full length ruffled and wrapped Lie Sang Bong dress to the event. I love this colour on Jessica and her minimal accessories are the way to go. Carrie Underwood wore a black and silver asymmetrical Rubin Singer dress while Jessica Alba stunned as always in a simple red Preen dress.
The TONY Awards
Usually I see Maggie Gyllenhaal on the red carpet and shake my head. However, at the TONY Awards last month I was so shocked to see Maggie in a gorgeous white D&G dress. The feathers are very theatrical and flattering. The added sparkle on the dress completes the look. House of Cards actress Kate Mara also wore D&G to the event. The intricate beading and embellishments on this dress are very suited to Kate’s style. Anna Gunn stunned in a gorgeous gold Jenny Packham gown at the awards. The subtle floral print in the dress is also great for the summer time. One of my favourites from the month.
Former Made In Chelsea stars Millie Mackintosh and Caggie Dunlop both attended the Beefeater Grill’S opening night. Both girls look very summery and on trend. Millie in a colourful aztec printed skirt and Caggie in a blue and white printed mini-jumpsuit with orange shoes. Meanwhile, Demi Lovato wore a bight yellow and black dress to the Cosmopolitan Latina Awards.
Kate Beckinsale wore a white lacy strapless dress to the Macbeth after-party in NYC. Meanwhile in Paris, Jessica Biel looked a vision in an off-white Giambattista Valli dress, with matching shoes. Naturally as she was attending the Tiffany & Co. Paris launch, Jessica wore all Tiffany jewels. Keira Knightley was papped wearing an intricate white embroidered lace dress which is paired with gold heels and brown rimmed sunnies.
Film Premier Looks
Angelina Jolie stole the show in Shanghai in a black Versace dress as she promoted her most recent film Maleficent, another of my favourite looks from last month. My final favourite from last month is actress Nicola Peltz’s look. Nicola stunned in a blue floor length Balengciaga dress as she attended the NYC premier of her film Transformers. Can anyone else believe Nicola is only 19?! Me either… Also in Shanghai last month, Nicole Kidman wore a sparkling D&G dress to the Shanghai Film Festival. This dress is super-glam and reminds me slightly of the Jenny Packham dress Kate Middleton wore last year.
Out and About
On the list again, Stacy looked great in a casual white dress, brown boots, bag and fab maroon hat get-up as she shopped. Selena Gomez also looked chic as she shopped in LA wearing light blue denim jeans, nude heels and blue knitted jumper. SJP was spotted in NYC wearing bright purple heels, a polka dot dress and black blazer. All three ladies wore oversized sunglasses to top off the look.
In London, models Jordan Dunn and David Gandy wore Burberry as they attended the Burberry Prorsum menswear show. Jordan wore dark skinny jeans, a casual grey top with a black biker jacket over her shoulders. David looked very 1920’s wearing dark dress trousers, tan brogues, a white t-shirt and cream blazer. And finally, actress Samantha Barks was photographed in London wearing a casual blue jean, black blazer and white top combo.
