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!

The Serpentine Gallery London

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.

Alexa Chung, Princess Beatrice and Cara Delevingne

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

Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Palermo and Charlize Theron.

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, 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

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 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

Paris and Nicky Hilton, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Selena Gomez at Coachella 2014

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

TV Couples Comando Steve and Michelle Bridges, Kassandra Clementi and Andrew Morley, Logies 2014

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

Shelley Craft, Rebecca Judd, Dannii Minogue, Logies 2014

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

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

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.

The Oscars 2014 Fashion Recap

Better late than never! After some technical issues (fancy cover-up speak for a broken laptop), I’ve finally complied my favourite red carpet looks from The 86th Annual Academy Awards.

Best Actress Winner Cate Balnchett wearing Armani Prive

Best Actress Winner Cate Balnchett wearing Armani Prive

Cate pulled out all the fashion stops on  the red carpet in this embellished Armani Prive dress. The gorgeous gown included capped sleeves, a high neck line, fitted waist and a flowing skirt. I think this is possibly one of the best red carpet  looks of the 2014 Awards Season. The simple retro waves, statement earnings tie and natural makeup bring the look effortlessly together, giving it an old Hollywood glam vibe. The perfect gown to be immortalised in when looking back at her win.

Lupita Nyong'o wearing Prada

Lupita Nyong’o wearing Prada

Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o stunned on the red carpet in a baby blue Cinderella worthy, Prada gown. The simplicity of this dress is ultimately what makes it so timeless and chic. Lupita also kept her accessories to a minimum. The most notable, and talked about, was her cute hair band. I’ve included a picture below that I feel shows this dreamy, princess quality of this dress. A perfect ending to an unbelievable run of dresses for Luptia. I can’t wait to see what she will wear next.

Angelina Jolie in Ellie Sabb

Angelina Jolie in Ellie Sabb

Looking much like the iconic golden statues, Angelina Jolie looked breathtakingly beautiful in gold Ellie Sabb. The sheer nude base with sequence appliqué is so on trend for 2014. Angelina brought it to another level of sophistication and elegance. Her swept back hair and subtle smoky eye, allowed her giant diamond earrings to shine without detracting the her magnificent dress.

Amy Adams wearing Gucci

Amy Adams wearing Gucci

Nominee Amy Adams, wore a navy Gucci gown to walk the red carpet. Many fashion critics have slammed Amy for wearing this simple, skulpted gown but I quite like it. I think the colour is great on her and it is tailored to perfection. Maybe a necklace or a softer hair style would have taken this dress to the fashion level everyone expects from Amy. Overall though, a great red carpet dress.

Kate Hudson wearing Atelier Versace

Kate Hudson wearing Atelier Versace

Kate looked  stunning in Versace on the red carpet. She incorporated this years biggeest trend, the cape, in an entirely new and sophisticated way.  The embellishments and wrap detail on the waist, show off Kate’s amazing figure.  One of the best looks this year from the Oscars!Kerry Washington wearing Jason Wu

Heavily pregnant Kerry Washington opted for a brown, strapless Jason Wu dress on the redcarpet. Kerry has had her ups and downs this red carpet seson, I’m on the fence about this dress. I think the silver bar detailing at the bust looks like she has stuck a pen down her top for safe keeping and it is a little bit wrinkled at the bottom.That said, what really won me over with this look was Kerry’s hair and makeup. The soft updo and dark lip and nails work well for Kerry. Overall a very Grecian inspired look.

Emma Watson in Vera Wang

Emma Watson in Vera Wang

Actress and presenter on the night, Emma Watson made her Oscars red carpet debut in a grey and black Vera Wang gown. I love the two tones at play in this dress and the glittery material. I feel Emma had the opposite problem to Kerry Washington. Emma’s hair, makeup and acessories were a bit lack lustre and let her look down. The messy side parting look like she jumped out of the shower and only half blow dried her hair. The rings and earrings were also a bit too much but the beautiful dress makes up for these mistakes.

86th Annual Academy Awards

Camila Alves wearing Gabriela Cadena

Camila Alves looked her usual stunning self in this pink Babriela Cadena dress. The draping of the train and the over the shoulder drape are extremely elegant. Keeping her accessories to a minimum with a matching clutch, Camila let her dress do all the work.

Jared Leto in Saint Laurent

Jared Leto in Saint Laurent

Best supporting Actor winner, Jared Leto looked super chic in a white tuxedo Saint Laurent jacket and black tuxedo trousers. Deviating from the normal, been there done that black tux, Jared also incorporated a red bow tie and skinny black pocket square. I love that Jared, and co-star Matthew Mc Conaghey, opted for white instead of the traditional black. Is anyone else shocked that he is 42 years old? I wouldn’t have placed him a day over 30!

Matthew Mc Conaghey in Dolce and Gabana

Matthew Mc Conaghey in Dolce and Gabana

Like Jared Leto, Matthew opted for a white tailed suit jacket. I love this look on Mc Conaghey. The black waist coat and bow tie make it an Oscar worthy look. Winner of Best Actor, Mc Conaghey topped off a great red carpet season with this look.

Jeremy Renner in Riccardo Tisci

Jeremy Renner in Riccardo Tisci

American Hustle star Jeremy Renner looked dashing in Riccardo Tisci. Similarly to Leto and Mc Conaghey, Renner opted for a black jacket and trouser combo with white shirt and bow tie. Very stylish!

Michael B Jordan wearing Givenchy

Michael B Jordan wearing Givenchy

Looking the epitome of cool, Michael B Jordan oozed style and sophistication on the red carpet in Givenchy. I love the addition of a tin pin to Michael’s look. The silver plate over the shoes are a bit confusing and I have to confess I’ve never seen the like before but I think I like them…Random shoes accessories aside, Michael looked like Mr Cool on the red carpet with a dazzling style to match!

As always, let me know who you’re favourite was, even if they were not mentioned here.

Best Dressed February 2014

As is customary this time of year, it has been a great month for red carpet fashion. Awards Season is sadly drawing to a close with only the Oscars left to go. Luncheons, premières, press calls, fashion weeks all feature in this months post. Don’t forget you can see all The Brit Awards and BAFTA fashion in my last post which were also on last month.

Burberry Porsum London Fashion Week Arrivals

Paloma Faith, Cat Deeley and Poppy Delevigne Burberry LFW Arrivals

Paloma Faith, Cat Deeley and Poppy Delevigne Burberry LFW Arrivals

Singer and show performer Paloma Faith wore one of Christopher Bailey’s latest creations from the Burberry collection. Along with a matching floppy hat and coat, Paloma incorporated a printed t-shirt to her look. Cat Deeley wore an iconic Burberry trench with black skinny jeans with white shoes to the show. Poppy Delevigne also in all Burberry, wore a spotty blouse, navy dress trousers, cute green shoes and a gorgeous blue coat to pull her look together and protect her from the chilly February weather.

Harry Styles and Tinnie Tempah Burberry LFW Arrivals

Harry Styles and Tinnie Tempah Burberry LFW Arrivals

Resident front row sitter at the Burberry shows, Harry Styles wore a moss green coat, grey top and his trademark skinny black jeans and Chelsea boots. Tinnie Tempah looked warm and cosy in a furry coat with black boots and jeans to match.

Fashionable Pairs

Naomi Watts & Luptia Nyong'o, Blake Lively & Rose Byrne, Suki Waterhouse & Cara Delevigne

Naomi Watts & Luptia Nyong’o, Blake Lively & Rose Byrne, Suki Waterhouse & Cara Delevigne

There’s nothing I love better than stylish celebrities… but two together is even more delightful! Fashion It Girl, Lupita Nyong’o posed with Naomi Watts at the Calvin Klein show, both wearing Calvin Klein. Similarly Blake Lively and Rose Byrne both wore Michael Kors whilst attending his show. Models and BFFs’ Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevigne both wore matching Burberry suits at the Harvey  Weinstein BAFTA dinner.

Red Carpet 

Diane Kruger, Emma Watson and Sandra Bullock

Diane Kruger, Emma Watson and Sandra Bullock

Actress Diane Kruger wore a printed asymmetrical Peter Piletto dress with matching black shoes to his show. I love the long sleeves and mis-mash of prints, great for Spring. Emma Watson wore an oversized black bow dress by Giambitistta Valli to the Elle 2014 Style Awards. It’s a shame that the white lining is visable underneath an otherwise lovely dress. Oscar Nominee Sandra Bullock wore a floral number to the Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon. I think it’s a shame there is a black sheer overlay on the skirt of this dress but the red clutch and belt tie the look nicely together.

Deltra Goodrum, Lily Collins and Eva Longoria

Deltra Goodrem, Lily Collins and Eva Longoria

Aussie singer Deltra Goodrem wore a Michael Costello deep purple dress to the Third Annual AACTA Awards last month. Lily Collins attended the Lancome BAFTA party in London in a girly floral checked dress with nude shows. Meanwhile at the Global Gift Gala Eva Longoria wore a black and white Zuhair Murad gown.

Kate Bosworth, Lupita Nyong'o and Amy Adams

Kate Bosworth, Lupita Nyong’o and Amy Adams

Kate Bosworth looked chic in silver  at the Van Cleef and Arpels store launch. Oscar Nominees Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o attended the EE BAFTA party. Lupita wore a typically taditional pink Chanel suit to the event while Amy wore an amazing white Zuhair Murad dress.

Wretch 32, Jared Letto and Matthew McConaughey

Wretch 32, Jared Letto and Matthew McConaughey

Rapper Wretch 32 looked chic and preppy in brown boat shoes, chinos and a stylish polo-neck and suit jacket combo. Personally, I love this look! It’s a brilliant alternative to the usual tux or suit option for males on a red (or blue in this case) carpet. Oscar Nominees Jared Letto and Matthew McConaughy attended a Dallas Buyers Club press event both in variations of grey. Jared let his now famous long locks hang down underneath a big hat. The grey cotton shirt, jacket, leather leggings and purple socks-black and white stripped shoes combo are another great red carpet look. Reliably, Matthew wore a smart three piece grey suit but with all black shirt and tie.

Amanda Holden, Naomi Harris and Frida Pinto

Amanda Holden, Naomi Harris and Frida Pinto

Amanda Holden attended the Manchester Britain’s Got Talent auditions in a white, navy and green, almost pixilated, dress with nude shoes. Naomi Harris looked stunning as always as she attended the London Critics Circle Film Awards. Naomi wore a fringed yellow Naeem Khan Pre Fall 2014 dress.  Very Daisy Gatsby! Model and Actress Frida Pinto attended the Chanel show in Paris. I love, love, love this purple printed dress but the shoes let this look down bags-full unfortunately.That said, Frida did coordinate her bag to match them so I’ll let this one go.

Let me know who your favourite was. Stay tuned for Oscars Fashion in the near future!
