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

Toni Garen, Allison Williams and Reece Witherspoon

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

Emily Ratajkowski, Rosie Huntington Whitley and Gwen Stefani

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!

Best Dressed June 2014

Last month was full of red carpet fashion appearances many of which were for charity and hosted by major companies or design houses. Gold and yellows featured a lot, most notably on Blake Lively and Anna Gunn. Others to watch out for inculde Angelina Jolie and Nicola Peltz. As always there were numerous film premiers, fashion and acting awards and celebs papped out and about in their casual gear to satisfy our fashion needs.

The CFDA Awards

Alessandra Abrosio, Blake Lively, Coco Rocha

Alessandra Abrosio, Blake Lively and Coco Rocha at the CFDA Awards

For a fashion awards event I have to admit I was a tiny, tiny, tiny bit disappointed with the red-carpet looks. However, Alessandra Abrosio, Blake Lively and Coco Rocha made up for the other disappointments. Victoria Secret model Alessandra Abrosio looked like a bronzed statue in this Nonoo dress with intricate detailing on the bust and waist. Fashion It Girl and actress Blake Lively wore a  short golden Michael Kors dress. Blake paired the dress with numerous bangles, nude suede shoes and an interesting gold headband. Model Coco Rocha really brought the ‘fashion’ to the CFDA Awards this year! I loved the off shoulder Christian Siriano gown and hat/fascinator she wore. Granted it is summer and black and white doesn’t always fly but Coco looks so elegant and occasion appropriate.

Gucci Chime for Change Event

Beyonce, Blake Lively, Solange

Beyonce, Blake Lively, and Solange at the Gucci Chime for Change Event

Beyonce attended the Gucci event held in NYC only a few days after that infamous Solange-JayZ-Lift-Showdown.  And… Solange also attended! Despite this both sisters wore variations of white, a sign of peace perhaps? Bey in a white jumpsuit with a plunging V, Solange wearing wide flare, 70’s style trousers with bright orange top, also with a deep neckline. Bake makes it on the list once again for her Gucci look on this carpet.

Max Mara & W Magazine Cocktail Party

A host of georgeous ladies attended the Max Mara and W Magazine cocktail party last month. My three favourites were Sophia Bush in an eye-catching print dress including florals,stripes and colour. I love the bright blue pointed shoes and black clutch. Pregnant Stacy Keibler poped (no, not her baby) at the event. The bright yellow-green dress and simple strappy shoes Stacy is wearing proves you don’t have to be a fuddy-duddy when you’re pregnant. Bad Neighbours actress Rose Byrne looked beautiful in midnight blue. The sparkles on the studded dress and tea-length are very classy. My only fault with this look is the shoes. I think they’re a big clash with the dress. A pair of strappy heels could have been a better choice.

Samsung Hope for Children Event

NYC was also host to the Samsung Hope for Children Charity event last month. Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr wore a beautiful full length ruffled and wrapped Lie Sang Bong dress to the event.  I love this colour on Jessica and her minimal accessories are the way to go. Carrie Underwood wore a black and silver asymmetrical Rubin Singer dress while Jessica Alba stunned as always in a simple red Preen dress.

The TONY Awards

Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kate Mara and Anna Gunn

Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kate Mara and Anna Gunn at the Tony Awards

Usually I see Maggie Gyllenhaal on the red carpet and shake my head. However, at the TONY Awards last month I was so shocked to see Maggie in a gorgeous white D&G dress. The feathers are very theatrical and flattering. The added sparkle on the dress completes the look. House of Cards actress Kate Mara also wore D&G to the event. The intricate beading and embellishments on this dress are very suited to Kate’s style. Anna Gunn stunned in a gorgeous gold Jenny Packham gown at the awards.  The subtle floral print in the dress is also great for the summer time. One of my favourites from the month.

Brights

Millie Mackintosh, Demi Lovato and Caggie Dunlop

Former Made In Chelsea stars Millie Mackintosh and Caggie Dunlop both attended the Beefeater Grill’S opening night. Both girls look very summery and on trend. Millie in a colourful aztec printed skirt  and Caggie in a blue and white printed mini-jumpsuit with orange shoes. Meanwhile, Demi Lovato wore a bight yellow and black dress to the Cosmopolitan Latina Awards.

White Wonders

Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Beil and Keira Knightly

Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and Keira Knightley

Kate Beckinsale wore a white lacy strapless dress to the Macbeth after-party in NYC. Meanwhile in Paris, Jessica Biel looked a vision in an off-white Giambattista Valli dress, with matching shoes. Naturally as she was attending the Tiffany & Co. Paris launch, Jessica wore all Tiffany jewels. Keira Knightley was papped wearing an intricate white embroidered lace dress which is paired with gold heels and brown rimmed sunnies.

Film Premier  Looks

Anjelina Jolie, Nicola Peltz and Nicole Kidman

Angelina Jolie, Nicola Peltz and Nicole Kidman

Angelina Jolie stole the show in Shanghai  in a black Versace dress as she promoted her most recent film Maleficent, another of my favourite looks from last month.  My final favourite from last month is actress Nicola Peltz’s look. Nicola stunned in a blue floor length Balengciaga dress as she attended the NYC premier of her film Transformers. Can anyone else believe Nicola is only 19?!  Me either… Also in Shanghai last month, Nicole Kidman wore a sparkling D&G dress to the Shanghai Film Festival. This dress is super-glam and reminds me slightly of the Jenny Packham dress Kate Middleton wore last year.

Out and About

Stacy KeIbler, Selena Gomez and Sarah Jessica Parker

Stacy Keibler, Selena Gomez and Sarah Jessica Parker

On the list again, Stacy looked great in a casual white dress, brown boots, bag and fab maroon hat get-up as she shopped. Selena Gomez also looked chic as she shopped in LA wearing light blue denim jeans, nude heels and blue knitted jumper. SJP was spotted in NYC wearing bright purple heels, a polka dot dress and black blazer. All three ladies wore oversized sunglasses to top off the look.

Jordan Dunn. David Gandy and Samantha Barks

In London, models Jordan Dunn and David Gandy wore Burberry as they attended the Burberry Prorsum menswear show. Jordan wore dark skinny jeans, a casual grey top with a black biker jacket over her shoulders. David looked very 1920’s wearing dark dress trousers, tan brogues, a white t-shirt and cream blazer. And finally, actress Samantha Barks was photographed in London wearing a casual blue jean, black blazer and white top combo.
