Best Dressed April 2014

Apologies! This post is soooo late. How and ever, April was a great month for celebrity fashion. America’s most famous music festival Coachella saw stars line out in droves to sing, bob and get papped in some boho-chic getups. The red carpets last month weren’t overly crowded but Australia provided some gowns to lust over at the Logie Awards. Speaking of Australia, Kate Middleton and Prince William provided us with ample looks on their tour of Oz which you can see here if you missed them. Of course, there were some casual strollers, airport hoppers and street styles last month too.

Coachella

Paris and Nicki Hilton, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Selena Gomez

Socialite’s Paris and Nicky Hilton were spotted at the festival in California. Both sisters wore floaty, printed dresses. Paris wore festival flowers in her hair, while Nicky wore hers in a plait across her head and messy bun. Both opted for sandals and, of course, large sunglasses. Kendall Jenner sported numerous looks over the course of Coachella but this was one of my favourites. Kendall’s look was typically ‘festival’ and no doubt will be copied by many. Wearing gorgeous suede cowboy boots, she showed off her model legs in high waisted denim short shorts with hippy belt. On op, Kendall wore a white embellished crop top and a sleeveless cape cardigan. Her sister Kylie was picture with Selena Gomez wearing denim shorts and a long grey top which covered all but the pockets of her shorts with a pair of black ankle boots. My favourite accessory and big trend from the festival is definitely the brown suede hat. Selena also wore a brown hat with her look, a white sheer knitted floral cover up with white shorts, black bikini top and black DMs.

Logies 2014

Comando Steve and Michelle Bridges, Kassandra Clementi and Andrew Morley

The Aussie version of the UK TV Awards was an elegant affair at this years Logie red carpet. The Biggest Loser coaches and couple Comando Steve and Michelle Bridges took a night off from their gruelling training sessions to walk the carpet together. Steve wearing a classic tux with smoking slippers and Michelle wore a lovely off-white dress with a beautiful bodice. Home and Away hotties and real life couple Kassandra Clementi and Andrew Morley walked the red carpet together also.  Kassandra stunned in a gold lace gown while Andrew wore a grey three-piece suit with matching blue tie and checked shirt.

Shelley Craft, Rebecca Judd, Dannii Minogue

Tv personality Shelley Craft wore a sheer nude full length dress with a beautiful pooling train and navy printed detailing on the toso, chest and shoulders. Model and presenter Rebecca Judd wore an interesting purple and lilac gown to the event. While I will admit there are a lot of different styles going on in this dress, Rebecca pulled it off well. If she dropped the belt it would have been perfect. Danni Minogue donned a metallic gown with a shocking side split and super high silver shoes!

Causal Chic

Emma Watson, Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl, Cara Santana

Actress Emma Watson was papped at JFK. Emma wore black skinny ripped jeans, black ankle boots, hat and top with sheer panel detailing. To lift all the black  she added a plum handbag. Style couple of the moment Olivia Palermo and fiancé Johannes Huebl took to the streets of NYC looking like they stepped off the pages of a magazine. Olivia wore all black, skinny jeans, sleeveless coat  and sheer top with black ‘eye’ pumps. Johannes was a little more colourful wearing cream chinos, desert boots, white shirt and light green jumper combo with a brown tweed bomber jacket. They’re too perfect for words! Cara Santana looked effortlessly stylish in LA. She wore light blue skinny jeans with a white top, caramel coloured leather jacket. She paired her look with a dark brown belt, t-bar heels and matching brown bag.

Red Carpet Premiers

Kate Upton, Elizabeth Banks, Cameron Diaz

Vogue cover girl, Kate Upton wore metallic D&G dress. to the premier of her latest film The Other Woman Kate matched her pointed shoes and kept her jewellery and hair simple. Elizabeth Banks looked lovely in a pink and black over-the knee Monique Lhuillier dress. Elizabeth was attending the Walk of Shame premier. Like Kate, she wore pointed toes heels in black to tie in with her outfit. Cameron Diaz, also attending the The Other Woman premier wore a nude and silver Emilio Pucci dress. There long sleeves and aztec-esque print is lovely on Cameron and she ties it all together with nude shoes.

White Wonders

Emma Stone, Kylie, Taylor Swift

Emma Stone, Kylie, Taylor Swift

Emma stone wore a white D&G lace number to attend The Amazing Spiderman premier. When i first saw this i thought it was too much white for Emma, as she is so pale, but i like the addition of black ankle strapped shoes and her forehead plait is a great way to breakup her paleness up top. Kylie Minogue looked fabulous in Roberto Cavalli as she walked the red carpet at the Logies 2014 in Australia. Kylie looks old school Hollywood in this dress and her side swept hair is amazing. I can’t say enough good things about this dress, I love it! Taylor Swift also opted for white but paired it with a black skirt and shoes at the Academy of Country Music Awards, wearing J Mendel. Taylor wore her newly chopped hair in signature curls and kept her accessories minimal, a gold bracelet, black clutch and gold earrings.

Print, Floral and 3D

Miranda Kerr, Isabel Lucas, Lupita Nyong'o

Miranda Kerr, Isabel Lucas, Lupita Nyong’o

Model Miranda Kerr floated through the streets of Tokyo looking like a fairy-tale princess in a pink and white printed dress by Balenciaga. Miranda wore pink peep toed bow shoes to add to the girlyness of her look. Former Home and Away actress and model Isabel Lucas looked gorgeous in bright blue at the End Game premier in NYC. I love the 3D rouched effect on this dress and the floatiness of the skirt. Fashion girl and lovable It Girl, Luptia Nyong’o wore a white dress with printed blue flowers, not unlike the dress Kate Middlton also wore on tour in Australia. I love this look on Lupita and she finished her look with off white-silver shoes.  Very girly and fun for Spring/Summer.

Let me know your favourite look.

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.

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.

Miley Cyrus and Ashley Roberts

Ashley Roberts wore a dark green jumpsuit, not unlike the same one Nicole Scherzinger wore last month to and Autism Fundraiser in London.

Not forgetting the Fellas!
