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!

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 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

Anna Kendrick Dita Von Tease Jessica Chastain

Anna Kendrick looked lovely in Reem Acra at the Unicef 2014 Ball. The sheer lace keyhole cutouts are stylish, on trend and add an extra edge to an otherwise plain gown. 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

The ever stylish Alison Williams didn’t disappoint in an interesting mullet style Osman dress which she wore at the third annual Sean Penn Haiti fundraiser event. 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. I can’t wait to see what she wears in the next few months. She is also featured below in a vintage Valentina short daisy dress. Stunning! Helen Mirren and Odette Annable wore silver/grey sparkly numbers on the red carpet.

Zac Efron landed into LAX in blue denims, a black hat, sunglasses, coat and grey hoodie while Elijah Wood looked more polished in a navy and blue preppy shirt and jumper combo.

Tv presenter Holly Willoughby styled a gorgeous camel coat with jeans, black boots and an oversized brown bag on the streets on London.

David Gandy Tinnie Tempah Michael B Jordan

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.

Bradley Cooper Joe Manginello James Marsden

Bradley Cooper Joe Manginello James Marsden

Bradley Cooper, a regular on my Best Dressed list looked elegant wearing a grey suit, spotted tie and black over coat. Similarly Joe Manginello wore a spotted tie with his suit while James Marsden added a  pop of colour  to his outfit with a purple pocket square.

The Grammys 

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

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!
