The Best Celebrity #ALSIceBucketChallenges

The #ALSIceBucketChallenge has been doing the internet rounds for weeks now and it is not showing any signs of slowing down. The challenge aims to raise vital funds and awareness for ALS or Motor Neuron Disease. There have been various charity social media trends this year for good causes, like the #NoMakeupSelfie for Breast Cancer Awareness at the start of the year. However, the Ice Bucket Challenge is by far my favourite! Aren’t fundraisers better when there are soaking wet celebrities involved?!

Justin Timberlake

I love the energy and collective effort JT and his team went to in this video. They make the challenge look fun and exciting.

David Beckham

Well if a shirtless David Beckham doesn;t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will!

Lady GaGa

Cool, calm and collected!

Niall Horan

Great reaction by everyone’s favourite One Directioner!

Victoria Beckham

The sheer delight and laughter in the background of this video is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face. Victoria getting drenched is an added laugh.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Only Leo could do an IceBucketChallenege whilst raising awareness for two important charities. A true philanthropist.

Michelle Dockery 

I love Michelle’s video! Surrounded by half naked men in golden shorts and  she gives us possibly one of the best reactions to the ice cold water.

Don’t forget to donate if you do the challenge! Let me know your favourite video, celebrity or otherwise!

Best Dressed March 2014

The first month of Spring brought shorter hem lines, loads of floral prints and brighter colours. After a busy Awards season there were fewer red carpet appearances than usual last month. Most of the best dressed celebs were either attending luncheons, press junkets, movie premiers, clothing line launches or jetting in and out of the country.

Fifteen year old actress Kiernan Shipka is already fast becoming a style icon! Attending the Paleyfest, Kiernan wore a printed Dolce and Gabbana dress. I love the style and shape of this dress aswel as the pretty gold shoes. Ten out of ten from me! Eva Mendez wore one of her own printed creations as she launched her clothing line in NYC last month. The blue and white subtle floral print is finished off nicely with sparkly gold heels. Actress Michelle Keegan displayed a serious tan as she attended the Vital Publicity event. Also wearing a subtle floral turquoise and white jumpsuit, Michelle accentuated her tan with white nails and white clunky shoes.

Sophisticated 

Keira Knightly, Renae Ayris and Rihanna

Keira Knightley  wore Chanel as she attended the French fashion brand’s shopping themed show in Paris.  While the British press dubbed this as a “wasp dress”, I think Keira looks like the epitome of the ‘Chanel Girl’. The black and white number is classically Chanel and the tie detailing on the collar is a nod to Karl Lagerfeld. Rihanna also attended the event in Paris. Wearing a gorgeous lilac tweed number, she is the first celeb to don a pair of Chanel runners on the red carpet.  Former Miss Australia Renae Ayris looked lovely in Sydney as she attended the  Nespresso Inissia launch in a sequenced top and high waisted skirt combo. There is something casual yet glam about this look which Renae pulls off well.

The Vampire Diaries Chicas 

Claire Holt, Phoebe Tonkin and Nina Dobrev

The Vampire Diaries and The Originals cast members looked great at ParleyFest. Claire Holt wore a black and white floral jumpsuit with pointed nude shoes.  Phoebe Tonkin wore a girly Spanish inspired black off the shoulder dress which she acessorised with a black belt and Nina Dobrev wore a navy studded dress to the event. The only problem I have with Nina’s dress is its length. If this was an inch shorter it would look much more glamorous.

Casual Fellas 

Jude Law, Ryan Reynolds and David Beckham

Jude Law looked classic-casual as he landed in JFK. Wearing black boots, light blue denim jeans and a black sheepskin jacket with a grey hoodie. Ryan Reynolds was papped leaving the set of Blake Lively’s new film, wearing combat trousers, a grey t-shirt and denim jacket. David Beckham was pictured leaving Rio airport looking his usual stylish self. David looked sleek in black skinny jeans, leather jacket, t-shirt and his trademark peak cap.

Stylish Couples 

Johannes Huebl and Olivia Palermo, Gisele Bunchen and Tom Brady

Fashionistas Olivia Palermo and fiance Johannes Huebl attended the Valentino show during Paris Fashion Week. Olivia wore a printed floral jacket with green short-shorts. Johannes looked sharp by her side in an overcoat with pocket square and shirt and tie. What a stylish couple! Tom and Gisele looked ‘Springy’  as they left the christening of their youngest  child, Vivian . Gisele wore 3/4 length white floral printed  trousers with red shoes, white t-shirt and blazer. (I saw an identical pair of trousers available in Warehouse but sadly I can’t find the link.) Tom looked smart in a navy suit with light blue checked shirt, tie and a pocket square to complete the look.

Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley in NYC and LA

Actress of the moment Shailene Woodley wore some gorgeous numbers during March as she attended various premiers for her new film Divergent. Shailene looked fab wearing a black Ellie Sabb one piece in New York. The cut out sheer printed panel and structured detailing at the top bring this onsie from boring to interesting. In La, Shailene wore an orange Jonathan Saunders mini dress at she attended the 51st Annual Publicists Awards Luncheon. This look is altogether very chic and elegant. I love, love,  her gold shoes which  add to some interest to the overall look. Shailene wore another Ellie Sabb number, this time a gorgeous bronze full length draped dress to the LA Divergent premier. I really like the detailing and slit on this dress although I think the very gold shoes are a bit of a clash. A look which would have fitted in with any we saw on the Oscars red carpet.

Elegant Ladies

Naomi Watts, Scarlett Johansson and Kate Middleton

Naomi Watts wore a maxi Michael Kors dress to promote her film, Diana. I love the colour of this dress ,  the rouching and cut out detailing. The floral print is bang on trend and the red clutch adds a mix of colour to her outfit.  Pregnant Scarlett Johansson added some fun to her red Vivienne Westwood dress with leopard print pointed heels. Scarlett matched her lip to her dress as she walked the blue carpet at the Captain America London premier. Kate Middleton celebrated St Patrick’s Day in style. Wearing a gorgeous green Hobbs coat, matching shoes and a gorgeous Gina Foster fascinator, Kate looked every inch the style Queen we know her to be.

Out and About 

Jordan Dunn, Naya Rivera and Christine Bleakley

Model Jordan Dunn wore Burberry and Topshop combo as she left the Good Morning America studios in NYC. Ambassador for both brands Jordan looks runway ready ever. Actress Naya Rivera looked vampy as she walked the press carpet for the Glee 100th episode in a black sheer panel and below the knee number. TV Presenter Christine Bleakley was spotted leaving a restaurant in London last month. A typically casual outfit – jacket, jeans boots and scarf- Christine manages to make it all simple, chic and fashionable. I love the printed scarf and Prada tote.

Dressy Ladies

Michelle Dockery, Rosie Huntington Whitley and Miranda Kerr

Michelle Dockery wore a beautiful blue and black Oscar de la Renta gown as she attended the Changing Faces Gala Dinner in London. The  style of this dress is so timeless as is the gold belted detailing, Michelle looks regal! Model Rosie Huntington Whitley showed off her amazing legs as she left the Vogue Festival. Rosie looked like she just stepped off the catwalk with her sunglasses, perfect hair and handbag. I love the light grey colour of her dress and the keyhole cut out. The pastel pink coat thrown over her shoulders is the perfect colour for spring and adds some extra glamour, as if Rosie need it! Fellow model Miranda Kerr also looked runway ready as she was papped in New York. In a floral Dolce and Gabbana floral print dress,  Miranda also wore a black jacket over her shoulders to keep off the NYC chill. Super Chic as always.
