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.

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.

Let me know who your favourite was from last month!

Best Dressed October 2013

Now that November is upon us, it’s time to recap the best looks from October; the month that Miley covered up, (who would have thought!) and, of course,  the month Prince George made his second public appearance. Winter has landed as many opted to cover up and keep it chic.

Bundled Up for Winter

Blake Lively, the new face of L’Oreal Paris, stepped out in New York in an Isabel Marant cosy jumper with printed leggings. This is a look I’m sure will divide many, but personally I think Blake could wear a bin bag and look fabulous!

Blake Lively and Olivia Palermo Jumpers

Fashion Princess Olivia Palermo looked super chic in black and white in New York on October 9th.  Olivia takes this look from ordinary to chic by adding a belt to accentuate her minuscule waist.

Cream of the Crop

Kate Middleton and Baby George co-ordinated their beautiful dresses on October 23rd. Kate looked elegant in Alexander Mc Queen, with matching hat, while George wore a handmade replica of the royal christening gown.

Black to the Bone     

Actress Clara Paget attended a Gucci party on Bond Street, London, last month. Clara looked elegant in her below the knee dress with sheer detailing across the chest and long sleeves. This is perfect way to dress for the colder winter months and still look fashionable.

Nicole Scherzinger is becoming a regular feature on my Monthly Best Dressed list!  Nicole accessorised a figure hugging black one piece with a fun leopard print handbag and white shoes in London.

Clara Paget and Nicole Scherzinger

MTV presenter Laura Whitmore wore this black Christopher Kane creation to the Scottish Fashion Awards on October 9th,  demonstrating that sheer is definitely not going anywhere for winter.

Laura Whitmore and Cara Delevigne

English rose and everyone’s favourite Crawley, Michelle Dockery, looked lovely in black at a ChildLine event in the Savoy Hotel London. The shoes let this outfit down but Michelle can carry them off.

Charlize Theron brought life to her simple black gown with intricate shoulder embellishments, a big trend from Spring/Summer 2014, as she attended the Beverly Hills Arts Gala.

Miley Cyrus wore this long sequined green number to The Fashion Group International event on October 22nd.  Somehow I have a feeling we won’t see Miley this covered up for a long time to come.

Not forgetting the Fellas!
