Best Dressed October 2014

Now that we are well out of the summer season I expected the October round up to be a dull, boring and wrapped up affair. How mistaken I was! Last month saw some great bright and floral looks across the red carpets and press call events. This month sees the first instalment of film premières that will undoubtedly be considered award-worthy. The only consolation to the dark days of winter is the upcoming red carpet events!

Blue and Silver

Reece Witherspoon, Gisele and Kate Middleton

Reece Witherspoon, unwilling to acknowledge winter just yet, was spotted last month wearing a beautiful black, blue and white floral, feminine dress. Reece styled the look by sweeping her hair to the side in vintage Hollywood waves, a thin clutch and monochrome bowed shoes. Very cute, very summery! Gisele never fails to dazzle and her appearance at the Chanel No5 #TheOneThatIWant launch was no exception. Wearing a silver, slinky Chanel mini, Gisele showed off her fabulously tanned legs and was the star attraction at the event launching her career as the new Chanel Girl. Kate Middleton was photographed last month for the first time since her severe morning sickness as she expects Royal Baby No2. Kate wore a beautiful baby blue Jenny Packham dress with a thigh high front slit.I absolutely love Kate’s suede nude shoes, a nice break from the Staurt Weitzman’s that have been doing the rounds recently.

Nudes and Stripes

Hallie Berry, Jenna Coleman and Amal Almuddin

 Actress Halle Berry was photographed at the Golden Heart Awards in New York City.The star, who is working with designer Michael Kors to stop world hunger was wearing a white, tea length dress with dark blue neck and waist trim by the designer to the event. Dr Who’s assistant Jenna Coleman turned heads at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood where she attended a pre-Britannia Awards party. Jenna paired her browny-nude long sleeved sheer top with a subtle sequenced skirt and matching nude shoes, topping off the elegant look with a box clutch. Perfection! Everyone’s favourite newly-wed Amal Alamuddin was back to her day job last month. Pictured in Greece, Amal wore an uber-stylish green striped and white dress wich she matched with a practical handbag and great pair of shoes.

Dressed in Black

Jessica Alba, Catherine Jenkins and Selena Gomez

Jessica Alba attended the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am opening ceremony in China last month. Jessica wore a black Emilio Pucci jumpsuit to the event, with a studded halter neck. However, I’m not sold on the Giuseppe Zanotti shoes… Welsh singing sensation Catherine Jenkins stunned in a sparkling, strapless floor length gown  by Suzanne Neville. The minimal jewels and amazing hair-do make this a winning look for me. Unleashing her inner Olivia Pope, Selena Gomez stepped out in LA during October in a gorgeous form fitting lace ensemble. I love the belt detailing. A very sophisticated and grown-woman look by Miss Gomez.

Casual Chicas

Victoria Beckham, Nicki Reed and Christe Brinkley

Running to a from her new London store, Victoria Beckham was papped wearing a pair of skinny ripped jeans, black suede boots and coordinating green top and jacket. Topped off with her signature glasses, Victoria can dress down to odd time! Nicki Reed was also papped last month. Leaving the airport, Nicki was seen wearing brown boots, a long flowy blue and gold dress acessorised with a stylish black hat, leather jacket and handbag. American model and actress Christie Brinkley was pictured at a Hamptons event last month looking dressed down to perfection. I love her chic camel coat and hat and Burberry bag. This is a great winter inspiration look as her printed trousers are bang on trend.

It was all Yellow

amie King, Blake Lively and Jessica Chastain

Jamie King, Blake Lively and Jessica Chastain

Jamie King and a very pregnant Blake Lively glowed together on the redcarpet as they attened an event hosted by Michael Kors. And, yes, you guessed it… both are wearing Michael Kors. Jamie wore a birght yellow dress, a rarity for her, while Blake wore a full length blue and nude sequenced dress. Jessica Chastain was spotted last month. Looking like a Grecian Goddess in this yellow Givenchy dress. I love the halter neckline and jewel detailing. The gold belt ties the look seamlessly together.

Stylish Trios

Bee, Michael Kors, Anna Wintour, Eddie Redmaune, Lily Collins, Ben Barnes

Anna Wintour and her daughter, Bee attended the Michael Kors God’s Love We Deliver 2014 Golden Heart Awards. Both ladies opted for floral designs while Mr Kors kept it classic in a black suit and tie. Meanwhile in Hollywood at the Vanity Fair and Burberry BAFTA party, Eddie Redmayne, Lily Collins and Ben Barnes posed for photos together. Burberry model Eddie wore a wine suit tailored suit with white shirt and baby blue tie, a surprising buy stylish combo. Lily looked girl in a white checked flowy skirt and crop top while Ben opted for a grey suit with a casually buttoned light blue shirt.

Cannes Film Festival 2013 Fashion Fix

The glitz and glamour of The Cannes Film Festival 2013 has come to an end.  Stars from across the globe flocked the French Rivera to promote numerous high profile and independent films.  Of course, the main focus of my attention was the fashion! For two whole weeks it’s nothing but glamour, sophistication and elegance on the red carpet.

White! White! White!

The colour du jour this year was white. Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Chastain and Kylie Minogue to name but a few, all sported elegant mix of white, off-white and monochrome gowns on the red carpet. Black, red and midnight blue also made frequent appearances.

Redheads Jessica Chastain and Isla Fisher both donned red gowns. Chastain for the amfAR Cinema Against Aids gala and Fisher at The Great Gatsby premiere. Being a redhead myself I am extremely reluctant to wear red, however, Jessica and Isla really pull it off.
