Rita Ora Oozes Old Hollywood Glamour

Rita Ora Oozes Old Hollywood Glamour

So this morning was pretty special, I got to spend it with Rita Ora while she launched Coca-Cola’s pop-up bar to celebrate 100 years of the iconic Coca-Cola bottle, crazy isn’t it that Coke’s bottle has been the same since 1915.

Rita Ora is kind of the perfect Coca-Cola ambassador as she is a self-confessed junkie of the fizzy pop and she looked incredible in her two red dresses for the launch, seriously oozing proper old-school Hollywood glamour, in a sexy Jessica Rabbit kind of way.

Cover Loving: Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue 2015

Cover Loving: Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue 2015

I do love the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood issue, it is always the most glamorous cover of the year, excluding the 3-in-a-bed scene from a few years ago, and I do love seeing the biggest names in Hollywood in a shoot together. Once again shot by Annie Leibovitz, did you know she has photographed all but three of the Hollywood issues in its 21 years, and like last year I am a fan of this cover due to its old Hollywood glamour feel, I love seeing the men dressed in white-tie tuxedos and the ladies in shimmery gowns. Granted there isn’t anything new about this cover but I still love it, because this is what I expect and love from the Hollywood issue.

Leading the pack in the special gatefold 2015 cover is Amy Adams in a gorgeous gold Atelier Versace gown, perched on the shoulders of Channing Tatum, next to a beautiful Reese Witherspoon, a little distracting with Amy’s pose and Reese’s cleavage, but I think it works. But it’s the Brits that dominated the rest of the cover and issue, yes we are invading Hollywood, with five out of the 10 stars British. You have a rather disinterested Felicity Jones, perched on the knee of Benedict Cumberbatch, while David Oyelowo drapes his arm over Eddie Redmayne, and Sienna Miller shows off her jumpsuit. Rounding off the cover is Whiplash star Miles Teller and Oscar Isaac from A Most Violent Year.

Overall I like the mix of new and established stars but I was kind of hoping that Chris Pratt and Mark Ruffalo would make an appearance, I am kind of obsessed with them both, maybe Chris is a little too mainstream with his Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic Park resume, and maybe Channing and Sienna took the Foxcatcher spots on the cover leaving no room for Ruffalo. Also talking about Sienna what did they do to her neck in editing?

The magazine has also released some of the snaps from its 2015 Hollywood portfolio, which will span across 30 pages and features 44 British stars including Keira Knightley, Damian Lewis, Ruth Wilson and Dame Judi Dench snapped by Jason Bell. Emily Blunt behind the Hollywood sign looks incredible.

On seeing this year’s cover and seeing it was celebrating 21 years, I kind of feel pretty old as well as the need to remind myself of who starred on the previous covers, so I have created a dedicated Pinterest board to the Hollywood issue. You can see how young Leo DiCaprio looks on the 1996 cover, which also includes the now forgotten Skeet Ulrich who I had a huge crush on, the all-girl cover of 2010 that even made Kristen Stewart looks sweet, and the 1995 cover that thought dressing the biggest Hollywood actresses in their underwear was a good idea, well except Gwyneth Paltrow who got to keep her gown on.

What do you think of this year’s cover? And do you have a favourite from the 21 years?

Shop Her Style: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Marks & Spencer

So last night Rosie Huntington-Whiteley hit up a party celebrating her first fragrance with M&S Beauty wearing nothing more than a silk nightdress from her own Rosie for Autograph sleepwear collection for Marks & Spencer, and I have to be honest if you read that statement without seeing the pictures you might think she has lost her fashion mojo, but wow, Rosie really can wear anything and still look incredible.

Golden Globes 2015: The Best Celebrity Instagram Moments

Golden Globes 2015: The Best Celebrity Instagram Moments

Of course we all love the official red carpet snaps from award shows, but this year I think all the fun is going to happened on Instagram as this past year actresses and actors really have got on board and embraced the picture sharing site, I am obsessed with following Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Hudson.  It was so fun to see A-list celebs sharing all the behind-the-scenes gossip from the Golden Globes – from the make-up chair, inside the limo, on the red carpet, during the award show and of course those boozy after parties. So I thought I would share a few of my favourites so you could add them you following list ahead of the next award show.  Are you following your favourite A-listers on Instagram?
