Best Dressed August 2014

The end of August saw some great red-carpet appearances from television, film and music royalty. The Emmy Awards, MTV’s Video Music Awards and The Teen Choice Awards last month displayed some great style his on the carpet. Of course, banks of photographers were there to capture every moment of it.

The EMMYS 2014

Kiernan Shipka, Sofia Vergara, Joanne Froggatt and Taylor Schilling at The Emmy's 2014

Kiernan Shipka, Sofia Vergara, Joanne Froggatt and Taylor Schilling at The Emmys 2014

Televisions equivalent to the Oscars, the Emmys sees TV’s finest strut their stuff on the red carpet. Mad Men’s fourteen year old Kiernan Shipka looked beautiful in this grey Antonio Berandi dress. It’s appropriate for her age, feminine and pretty. I love the jewelled detailing across the waist/stomach area. Everyone’s fave Colombian, Sofia Vergara stunned in a white and silver detailing Roberto Cavalli gown on the red carpet while Joanne Froggatt ditched her doudy Downton maid uniform for a show-stopping J Mendel dress. I can’t get enough of the flowing material leading to a gorgeous skirt and the chain detailing on the bust. A best dressed contender for me! Orange is the New Black’s Taylor Schilling wore a full length Zuhair Maurad beaded dress which perfectly compliments her great figure.

Sarah Paulson and Lizzy Caplan at  The Emmy's 2014

Sarah Paulson and Lizzy Caplan at The Emmy’s 2014

Opting for a darker look on the Emmy red-carpet, Sarah Paulson looked amazing in an Armani Prive black gown with a spotted red netting overlay. Personally I love this dress and look on Paula, although the jury is still out for many online critics. Everyone loves a risk taker! Hasn’t Lizzy Caplan come a long way from her Janice Ian Mean Girls days? I think Lizzy looks like the belle of the ball in this black and white Donna Karan Atelier number. Another best dressed contender.

The VMA’s 2014  

Keltie Knight, Bianca A Santos and  Greer Grammer at The VMA's 2014

Keltie Knight, Bianca A Santos and Greer Grammer at The VMA’s 2014

TV Host Keltie Knight looked ultra-feminine and glamorous in a figure hugging blue and nude crop top and pencil skirt. I love the strappy gold shoes which top off her romantic look. Actress Bianca A Santos looked regal in a gold flapper-esque Naeem Khan dress. It’s short, gorgeous and perfect for the VMA’s! Greer Grammer brought some summer colour to the red-carpet in her bright bluey-turquoise hued dress by Walter Mendez. Although the sheerness and beaded appliqué is slightly revealing I think the feminine flowy skirt and side split make this look red-carpet appropriate.

The Teen Choice Awards 2014

Cat Deeley, Nina Dobrev and Taylor Swift at The Teen Choice Awards 2014

Cat Deeley, Nina Dobrev and Taylor Swift at The Teen Choice Awards 2014

Cat, Nina and Taylor brought some great colour to the Teen Choice Awards blue-carpet last month. Cat opted for a brilliantly bright orange Alberta Ferretti dress. I’m loving the floral detailing on the waist and Cat’s skinny nude heels. The Vampire Diaries star and fashionista, Nina Dobrev looked fabulous as always in Vionnet crop top and shorts combo. The pink pointed shoes perfectly accentuate the pink in the outfit. Taylor Swift wore a gorgeous green   Novis skirt and crop top combo with yellow shoes to the awards. This look is bang on trend and I really like the colour combinations by both Taylor and Nina.

Cher Lloyd, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez at The Teen Choice Awards 2014

Cher Lloyd, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez at The Teen Choice Awards 2014

X Factor star Cher Lloyd is making quite a name for herself in America. Cher attended The Teen Choice Awards wearing a black and sheer Amen and Theory outfit. Putting her legs on display, Cher paired her short-shorts with a sheer studded, armoured long sleeved top. Fellow X Factor alumni Demi Lovato also attended wearing a white sophisticated Elisabetta Franci dress which she paired with gold pointed shoes. Selena Gomez also donned a pair of pointed shoes, this time in silver, as she strutted her stuff on the blue carpet wearing Saint Laurent jumpsuit.

Also Spotted Last Month… 

Frankie Stanford, Katie Holmes, Odea Rush, Taylor Swift and Megan Fox

Frankie Stanford, Katie Holmes, Odea Rush, Taylor Swift and Megan Fox

The Saturday’s member, Frankie Stanford was pictured leaving ITV studios wearing a gorgeous dark purple top with sheer cut-out panel and a light lilac skirt. I love this look as it’s easy to replicate and looks effortlessly stylish. Elsewhere in New York, Katie Holmes, Odea Rush and Taylor Swift posed together on the red carpet at the premiere of their film, The Giver.  All three wore girl flowy dresses and all different lengths. Also in NYC Megan Fox looked lovely on the red carpet at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiere. Megan looked her usual fab-self in a mish-mash of black and white prints, which she paired with a pair of classy shoes.

Let me know who your Best Dressed was!

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

Couples at the Serpentine Gallery Party, Richard Fleeshman and Samantha Barks, Suki Waterhouse and Bradley Cooper, James Righton and Keira Knightley

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

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, Pharrell 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

David and Victoria Beckham, Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshaw, Christine Bleakely 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

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.

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 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.

Print

Kiernan Shipka, Eva Mendez and Michelle Keegan

Kiernan Shipka, Eva Mendez and Michelle Keegan

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 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

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, 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

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

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, 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

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, 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.

Let me know who your best dressed was!

Best Dressed January 2014

Whhooweee! What a crazy month January was for celebrity fashion. The Golden Globes, The Grammy Awards, The National Television Awards and various film and TV critic lunches and cocktail parties have left us with loads of fashion to drool over. Added to this some book promo tours and television chat show appearance and it makes for a seriously picture heavy post.

Trend Alert: Yellow

Angelina Rose Olivia Munn Lupita Nyong'o

Angelina Rose Olivia Munn Lupita Nyong’o

Yellow has been everywhere this red carpet season. While it has yet to have an outing on any major awards red carpets I’m sure we might see it throughout the spring season.  Angelina Rose wore a prom-esque short yellow dress with a broach inspired design on the side. The Newsroom actress Olivia Munn wore a bright Victoria Beckham halter dress with matching white shoes and clutch, which I love, and this seasons It Girl, Lupitia Nyong’o wore a low cut yellow number with cute shoes to promote her Oscar Nominated Film 12 Years A Slave.

Block Colours

Anna Kendrick Dita Von Tease Jessica Chastain

Dita Von Tease kept it elegant in puple and Jessica Chastain wore Nina Ricci to the Critic Choice Movie Awards. Doesn’t it slightly resemble the Gucci number Luptita wore to the SAG Awards?

Zosia Mamet Nina Dobrev Naomie Harris

Zosia Mamet Nina Dobrev Naomie Harris

Girls actress Zosia Mamet has never looked better. I love this Elizabetta Franchi combo that she wore to promote Girls Season 3 in London.  On the opposite end of the colour spectrum, Nina Dobrev donned an orange embellished gown at the Art of Elysuim Heaven Gala. Naomie Harris continues her run of amazing dresses in this Naeem Kham sheer lace white dress which she wore to the Palm Springs International Film Awards.

Gold and Silver

Alison Williams Jessica Alba Lupita Nyong'o

Alison Williams Jessica Alba Lupita Nyong’o

Jessica Alba always looks enviously well at any event she attends. The crop-top and skirt combo she wore to the launch of Tory Burch’s flagship store in LA is going on my style inspiration board!

Helen Mirren Lupita Nyong'o Odette Annable

Helen Mirren Lupita Nyong’o Odette Annable

Lupitia Nyong’o features again on Januarys best dressed list… How stunning is this gold dress?! This lady is on a complete roll at the moment.

Model David Gandy deviated from a traditional black and white number and opted for a really stylish blue suit with creamy white dress coat at the Saville Row fashion show in London. Tinnie Tempa looked very fashion forward at the Burberry London menswear show in a grey suit with green overcoat with fur trim. Michael B Jordan added some interesting detail to his suit with stylish black and white shoes.

Katy Perry wearing Valentino, Beyonce in Michael Costello and Iggy Azaalea in Ellie Sabb

Singer Katy Perry took music to the red carpet in a white fullskirt Valentino gown which was definitely appropriate for the occasion. Superhuman Beyonce wore a white sheer Michael Costello gown which looks like it could have inspired by Adam and Eve. Paired with a bold lip and messy Hair B looked amazing as usual. Iggy Azalea looked elegant in an Ellie Sabb number, the best I think she has looked at an event for a long time.

Christie Teigan wearing Johanna Johnson, Ciara and Taylor Swift in Gucci gowns

Christie Teigen wearing Johanna Johnson, Ciara and Taylor Swift in Gucci gowns

Newly married Christe Teigen wore a Johanna Johnson metallic number to support her husband John Legend on the red carpet. Keeping with the metallic theme Ciara showed off her babybump in a stunning Gucci dress with mini pool train. The detail on this dress is incredible and Ciara looks like a superstar wearing it. Taylor Swift, also in Gucci, took a break from her girly dresses and opted for a chain detail floor length dress, keeping her hair and jewellery simple to compliment her look.

As always, I’d love to know who you thought looked best during the month of January!

Best Dressed November 2013

November showcased some great winter red carpet looks to ease us into the upcoming award season. Film premieres and TV photocalls displayed shorter, fun looks to banish the winter blues.

Let me know who was your best dressed!

 

Best Dressed August 2013

The VMA’s, the Teen Choice Awards and press calls. It’s time to look back at August’s best dressed Guys and Gals! Even out and about, these celebrities managed to look effortlessly chic and runway ready.

The Teen Choice Awards

TroianGabbyChelsea TCA

Troian Bellisario, Gabby Douglas, Chelsea Kane

Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario looks stunning in this lace, off white, sheer number. Troian kept her hair in a simple ponytail. An excellent choice to best show off this beautiful dress.

Chelsea Kane opted for this season’s hottest trend, the crop top. The crop top and highwaisted pencil skirt combo looks elegant on Chelsea. The turquoise, blue and green colour scheme brings life to the traditionally black and white dogtooth pattern.

Olympian Gabby Douglas keeps it young and fun on the red carpet with her yellow cut out mini-dress. The patterns make an otherwise plan dress interesting and eye-catching. Her pink floral shoes work perfectly  to compliment the yellow in her dress.

NinaDobrev ShayMitchTAC2013

Nina Dobrev, Shay Mitchell

Shay Mitchell, another Pretty Little Liar’s cast memeber, rocked monochrome in this plunging one piece. The lime shoes add a fun feel to the outfit, perfect for the TCA’s.

Nina Dobrev also opted for a similar look sporting a paint-splattered pant suit with plenty of cleavage and a neon orange clutch.

SelenaGomez

Selena Gomez

To celebrate her 21st birthday, Selena donned a white studded crop top and white high wasited shorts. Later in the month Selena wore this seasons hottest colour, army green.  Her sleeveless denim shirt and black ankle zip jeans work perfectly with her buckle jeans and Chanel handbag. The perfect autumn outfit!

White Wonders

Candadian actress Serina Swan dressed in white at the Somaly Mam event in California. Serina looks super elegant in this sheer number. The verdict is still out on the odd length of this dress but the dress itself is bang on trend.

Kate Hudson looked angelic as ever in this amazing Antonia Berandi white halter neck, lace number. Does Kate ever dress badly? If she’s finished with this dress I’d be happy to take it off her hands…

SerinaKatekCavKloKar

Serina Swan, Kate Hudson, Kristen Cavallari, Khloe Kardashian

Kristin Cavallari wore white while promoting her shoe collection for Chinese Laundry at the MAGIC Market Week in Las Vegas, August 20th.  Kristen’s cobalt blue shoes are on the money! For the winter months this blue is going to be everywhere.

Print, Print, Print

ACJAJC

Alexa Chung, Jessica Alba, Jamie Chung

Alexa Chung was out and about in NYC on August 24th wearing a printed Kenzo dress. I’m not too pushed on the Granny sandals but I’ll let it slide this time. The floral print works well for these last few days of summer sunshine.

Jessica Alba pairs a multicoloured floral print blouse which she accentuates with a bright yellow blazer, skinny black jeans and pink shoes. The oversize handbag and ultra-bright  blue shades are effortlessly chic.

TV personality Jamie Chung makes the print trend wearable with these floral shorts. She keeps its casual with a denim jacket and white, knitted top with matching grey suede boots and bag. Another great outfit for a day’s shopping.

MCOPKC

Miranda Kerr, Olivia Palermo, Kristin Cavallari

Miranda Kerr looks flawless as ever in a Topshop printed skirt, ideal for summertime,  nude heels, white tee and bright pink Louis Vuitton mini-cambridge-esque bag.

Fashionista Olivia Palermo retains her It Girl status with this perfect black and white printed dress. Olivia added a pop of colour with an Aztec necklace and pink handbag. The leopard shoes surprisingly work well with this combo. Another stellar outfit choice Miss Palermo!

Kristin Cavallari makes it onto the list again. This time it’s for her blue and white printed trousers. This girl sure knows how to dress well!

Stacey Keibler wore black and white casual jean suit this month. The simple red shoes help bring this outfit from boring to stylish. A great outfit choice for a day of meetings or a day at the office.

Karlie Kloss, Stacey Kiebler

Model of the moment Karlie Kloss looked ravishing in monochrome on the streets of NYC this August. Karlie shows us that less is definitely more. Her black heels with above the ankle strap make add another touch of class to this minimalist outfit.

Green with Envy

Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton stepped out for the first time since giving birth to son George on August 30th. The Duchess and Prince William were kicking off a 135 mile marathon in North Wales. Kate wore a green Ralph Lauren blazer paired with black skinny jeans and wedges. Stunning as always, Kate!

Supermodel Elizabeth Hurly looks a million dollars in this green floor length gown at the Compare the Market press call. Way to go Liz! I hope I look this fab at 48!

In the Navy

Taylor Swift Selena Gomez

The VMA’s on August 25th caused quite a stir! Not just because of Miley Cyrus’ raunchy behaviour  but the red carpet fashion. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez looked incredible in these navy ensembles. Taylor’s Herve Leger number showed off her beautiful figure, while Selena went for an elegant navy number with intricate detail on the bust and slit up the right hand side.

NicoleScherzinger

Nicole Scherzinger displayed her newly topped up tan at the X Factor launch on August 29th. The third celeb on this list to don a one piece combo, Nicole keeps it fun with red shoes and matching yellow nails and sunnies. A stunning hairdo tops off this look.
