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

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 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

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 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 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.

Let me know who your favourite from last month was!

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.

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

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

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 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!

Fashion Fix: The 2013 Emmy Awards

Television and Hollywood’s fineest stormed Los Angeles on Sunday September 22nd for the annual Emmy Awards. Of course, all eyes were on the red carpet fashion! Pale pinks and champagne colours dominated. Lace, intricate beading and sequences were also a prominent feature on the red carpet. Simple and structured purple, red and blue gowns made bold statements. Hair wise, simple ponytails, side curls and basic straight blow dries were popular amoungst the nominees and guests. Clare Danes, who wore a beautiful Armani Privee gown, looked amazing with her “faux bob”. Rose Byrne also debuted a new hairdo changing her brunette locks to a light, honey blonde. Overall the fashion was a knockout success for the first major redcarpet event of the new season! Below are some of the must see looks…
