Best Dressed November 2014

While most of us are covering and wrapping up warm for winter, we can all live vicariously through this month’s best dressed. I always love this time of year on the red carpet as we see some gorgeous gowns to get us excited about the upcoming awards season. Look out for some stunning looks from Kate Hudson, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek.

Chic Nudes and Silver

The Saturday’s star and fashionista Molly King was pictured leaving the Casio Sheen event in Covert Garden, London. Molly had her signature tanned legs on show wearing strappy silver heels and a nude Peter Pan collared, skater skirt dress. Similarly in nude, Kate Hudon stunned at the LACMA Art Film event in a Gucci gown. This is definitely my favourite look from last month. I love the scalloped hem line, gathering on the waist and one shoulder detailing. This is a perfect dress to get us all excited for the upcoming awards season. Nicole Scherzinger walked the red carpet at the Global Gift Foundation in London last month. Nicole wore a metallic Ermanno Scervino midi dress with silver shoes, slicked back hair and a bold lip.

Press Call Looks

Jessica Chastain, Angelina Jolie and Amy Adams

Jessica Chastain looked elegant in emerald as she attended the A Most Violent Year press call in LA. Pairing her capped sleeved over the knee dress with pointed black heels, Jessica kept her hair and makeup natural, opting for a bright pink nail instead. Angelina Jolie wore a beautiful Gucci Premiere full length dress to the Unbroken Sydney premiere. The silk dress boasts a gorgeous lace overlay and neckline. Angelina always get’s it right on the redcarpet. Amy Adams, also attending a press photo call in LA last month kept it neutral in navy. Like Jessica she paired her simple dress with pointed patent heels. A big trend this season.

Street Style

Katie Holmes, Katherine Heigl and Gemma Arterton

In NYC last month Katie Holmes attended an event at Apple. Katie kept it casual in blue jeans, a grey wool jumper with printed neck detailing and my least favourite part of the look, red-tan ankle boots. Katerine Heigl looked effortlessly cool as she was papped at the airport. The grey jumper and coat combo is perfectly executed with black jeans and white-grey slip on shoes. Casual-chic at it’s finest. Actress Gemma Arterton battled the British breeze in a gorgeous winter outfit. Wearing a brown heavy woollen over coat, Gemma addeda white shirt under her cable knit jumper. Like Katherine, she also paired her look with black jeans and gorgeous brown Chelsea boots.

Black and White Combos

Selma Hyek, Carrie Underwood and Angelina Jolie

Sama Hayek, Carrie Underwood and Angelina Jolie

Salma Hayek, also attening the LACMA Art and Film event, looked wonderful in a white in (you guessed it), Gucci. This dress looks amazing on Salma, the column style displays her waist to perfection and the embellished neckline which splits off into a halter style is so unusual and beautiful. The silver clutch further adds to the classy look. Top marks from me. Singer Carrie Underwood looked very wintery at the Concer for Valor in Washington DC. Carrie paired knee length boots with a full skirted coat and fluffy scarf. Once again, Angelina Jolie is featured on the Best Dressed list. Attending the London premiere of Unbroken, this time Angelina wore a beautiful white Ralph and Russo over the knee dress. My favourite [art of this look is the bolero cape. It’s perfect for winter and super elegant.
