Best Dressed September 2014

Incase you missed it… George Clooney got married! As always, Mr Clooney wore Armani but his gorgeous wife Amal stepped out in a variety of beautiful designer outfits for us to drool over. Including the wedding of the year, so far, September was also unofficial Fashion Month. With runways and front rows brimming with style and sophistication Paris, New York and Milan brought loads of desirable styles to the fore. Film festivals and film premières topped of the red carpet looks featured in this months best dressed list.

After what can only be described as a fairytale wedding and weekend in Italy, Amal Alamuddin became the most talked about bride of the year.  Amal wore a stunning lace Oscar de la Renta gown for her intimate ceremony. I am in love with the neckline of this dress. The off the shoulder detailing is extremely elegant and flattering. Amal was also pictured looking like a movie star in a white and navy Stella McCartney trouser, top and hat combo. To top off a fabulous weekend of outfits Amal showed off her endless legs in a floral appliqué and laceGiambattista Valli dress. Swoon!

C’est Chic

Amanda Holden, SJP and Allison Williams

Amanda Holden arrived at Claridges hotel last month is an over the knee black and white dress, paired with thin-strapped black shoes. Amanda accessorized with a chic hair do and black clutch. Sarah Jessica Parker attended the Gareth Pugh presentation in NYC in a vibrant, also over the knee, printed dress. SJP finished the look with pointed silver heels. Also in pointed heels, actress Allison Williams looked like the bell of the ball as she attended the DVF NYC show. Does this girl every get it wrong? I love the checked grey detailing. I think if Dorothy ever made it from Kansas to NYC fashion week, she would be definitely wear this dress.

All Black, Everything

Model Toni Garen wore an interesting layered black dress to a Nars launch event in NYC. I really like the vertical panel detailing on the corset which extends into a sheer skirt with horizontal strips. Allison Williams features again in another great outfit from NYC last month. This time Allison wore a tea length skirt and crop top by Vionnet with a white collar and waist band trim. Reece Withersppon attended the Toronto Film Festival for the screening of her latest flick, Wild. Reece wore a black Saint Laurent dress with a cute flowy skater skirt, off the shoulder detailing and sparkly side panel.

Film Festival Frocks

Cara Delevigne, Jessica Chastain and Kate Beckinsale

Cara Delevigne walked the not-so-red-red-carepet at the Toronto Film Festival in a full length striped green dress with a gold belt. I love this look on Cara. The multiple shades of green work well with her skin tone and hair and her makeup is classically beautiful. Kate Beckinsale, also at the Toronto Film Festival, wore a strapless nude-pink jumpsuit with subtle wrap detailing at the bust with an odd but workable piece of fabric stemming from the waist. Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain was honoured at the Deauville American Film Festival. Jessica wore a heavily embroidered Oscar de la Renta pink over the knee dress with spiky Louboutains.

Red and Silver Combos

Did someone say Jessica Rabbit? Wow! Emily Ratajkowski attended the Gone Girl world premiere in a simply stunning red SAFiYAA dress. The minimal hair and no jewellery add to the elegance and simplicity of this look. My favourite look from last month by far! Rosie Huntington-Whitley stunned in silver as she attended the Stuart Weirzman event in Paris while Gwen Stefani wore a red power suit  with white top as she was papped between work commitments. The printed Louboutains add some fun to this work wear.

Let me know who your favourite from last month was!

The New Generation of Superheroes

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Henry Cavill steaming up the front page of every magazine on the news shelves! Not that you’re going to find any females complaining. The recent wave of new faces taking on the world’s best loved superheroes comes in the form of thirty year old Henry Cavill. Cavill is the latest in a long line of stars to take on the role of Superman in Man of Steel.

The Man of Steel features Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Mc Adams isn’t the only new edition to Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Superman, there’s a new super suit. Cavill’s suit is much darker and manly than previous Suits worn by the likes of Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Brandon Routh and Tom Welling.

Superman over the years

Cavill isn’t the first, or indeed the last, to take on the role of a well-established character. In 2012, Andrew Garfield suited up as Spiderman in The Amazing Spiderman. Garfield took over the role from Tobey Maguire who debuted as Spiderman in 2002. While Garfield’s version of everyone’s favourite spider was no runaway success like Maguire’s, he has managed to land the role again for the upcoming The Amazing Spiderman 2.

Gotham City has been blessed with numerous Batmen over the years, including George Clooney! Now that Christopher Bale’s stint on The Dark Knight Trilogy has ended will there be a new Batman in town?

Everyone’s favourite crazy-tempered-green-monster, The Hulk, has seen Eric Banna and Mark Ruffalo run around in iconic purple shorts.

Chris Pine and Ryan Reynolds have been fortunate enough to be the first to portray Captain America and The Green Lantern.

The success of both has been challenged but they are paving the way for new adaptations of classic favourites.
