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

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

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

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, 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

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…

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.

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.

The One Direction boys matched one another in varying light and dark denim. Harry Styles even sported a hat walking down the red carpet! Niall Horan opted for the Top Gun look with his RayBans and brown jacket.  Zayn and Liam went for denim shirts while Louis looked smart in a tweed jacket.

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…

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.

Khloe Kardashian works an off white, verging on grey, top with white skinny jeans. Her grey floppy hat is a gorgeous accessory! She has even co-ordinated her Starbuck to match her yellow bag. A great outfit for shopping or lunching with friends.

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!

Monochrome

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.

KKSK

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.
