Elle Style Awards: Diane Kruger In Chanel Couture


So I thought the Vanity Fair red carpet would be my last celeb posting for a while, well that was until I saw Diane Kruger in this gorgeous, frothy Chanel Couture look at the Elle Style Awards. I am a sucker for Diane’s red carpet style, pink, cute, and lacy Chanel.

This Chanel Couture lace gown from the spring 2015 collection is so Diane, it is fun, edgy and so oozing with Parisian style that it is such a statement piece that not many people could pull off this look. I adore everything from the colour, it really is a delicate pale pink, as well as all the embroidery added to the bodice and skirt. 

For me this look is simply enchanting and I love it. Also can you believe that this was literally a day after she hit the red carpet in Los Angeles for the Vanity Fair Oscar party – how does she look so good.

I also love that she styled the dress with silver accessories, her point-toe heels are chic, I adore her Edie Parker zig-zag clutch, plus I wish I could afford her Jaeger-LeCoultre Joaillerie 101 Art Deco watch.

This look for me is a modern-day princess and Diane pulls it off perfectly.

Oscars 2015: Margot Robbie In Saint Laurent

Who: Margot Robbie

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A black Saint Laurent gown with sheer long sleeves and a plunging neckline, teamed with vintage Van Cleef & Arpels ‘Zip Antique Colombine’ necklace that featured diamonds and
sapphires set in 18K yellow gold

Verdict: Margot Robbie is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, she is fast becoming my new obsession, and this is another stunningly, sexy look from her. Granted I was hoping for a vibrant colour, but this is a gorgeous, sexy, subtle Saint Laurent gown that was made perfect with her flawless hair and make-up. 

I’m loving her new bob, this shorter length really suits her and that matte red lip is hot, add on to that the most beautiful statement necklace and you have a show-stopping look. 

Love everything about this look. I wonder whether she will change into something sexier for the after parties?

Oscars 2015: Naomi Watts In Armani Privé

Who: Naomi Watts

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A high-neck light green organza Armani Privé gown with spiralling ruffles in white and jet-black beading, and a plunging back, teamed with Bulgari sapphire earrings

Verdict: There is something about this dress that just sparkled, and I’m not just talking about the amount of beads, but the colour combination of the green, white and black was chic, and I loved, loved, loved the sports bra vibes, it just brought something different to the red carpet. 

Naomi Watts is always beautiful and I love that she mixed up her style and I think this is one of my favourite red carpet looks from her for a while, and she has had some amazing looks. 

I think this gown will be either loved or hated – which side are you on?

Oscars 2015: Gwyneth Paltrow In Ralph & Russo

Who: Gwyneth Paltrow

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A custom pale pink, one-shoulder Ralph & Russo couture gown with an oversized rose detail on the shoulder, teamed with Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie jewellery

Verdict: Gwyneth Paltrow always has major moments at the Oscars, remember her caped Tom Ford a few years ago and her gorgeous pink Ralph Lauren she wore to pick up her Oscar? Well I think this is another memorable gown, as one again she pulls off feminine beauty to perfection. 

This gown is actually an altered version of one that went down the SS15 couture runway, it had a little more drama, but I actually think this beauty with the one-shoulder and oversized rose detail is perfect for the Oscars and she wears it off beautifully. 

This is just elegant, glamorous, and I love that she went for the dramatic, oversized diamond-encrusted earrings to finish off her look.

Oscars 2015: Kerry Washington In Miu Miu

Who: Kerry Washington 

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A strapless, cream Miu Miu gown, featuring embroidered floral detailing to the peplum and a textured skirt, teamed with Fred Leighton earrings

Verdict: The Scandal actress has been on a red carpet roll lately and I think this is another great look, not a wow moment, maybe not even an Oscar worthy gown, nevertheless I still think she looks beautiful. 

It is just subtle, sweet and elegant, whereas I think this was a great opportunity for her to opt for something more dramatic and colourful, I really wanted her to make a statement, but saying that there was a lot of white and nude hues on the red carpet so she was certainly on-trend. 

My favourite thing about her look has to be her flawless hair and make-up, her glamsquad always make her look so beautiful.

Oscars 2015: Julianne Moore In Chanel Couture

Who: Julianne Moore

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A custom white Chanel haute couture gown, featuring  white hand painted resin sequins and flowers made of ivory, beige and black organza, tulle and sequins, teamed with Chopard jewellery

Verdict: OK, so this gown didn’t blow me away like I hoped, Julianne Moore has been so amazing this season with her high fashion sexy numbers that this one for me falls a little short. 

For the craftsmanship alone, it took 987 hours of work and 27 people to complete as it features more than 80,000 hand painted sequins, I felt like I had to include it, as even though it might not be my favourite look she has worn I can still appreciate that it is exquisite.

What I did love was her hair and make-up, the sleek chignon suited the gown and occasion, and I adore that she went for a vibrant lippy. 

No matter what I still think this look will be in everyone’s best dressed list.

Oscars 2015: Emma Stone In Elie Saab

Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A custom long-sleeve beaded chartreuse Elie Saab gown embroidered with guipure and sequins, featuring an open back and a thigh-high slit, paired with matching green heels and a Tiffany & Co. cuff

Verdict: Emma Stone made us wait for her red carpet appearance tonight, but it was so worth it. The colour was different, this shade of green doesn’t often hit the red carpet, and I think this may be Elie Saab’s best Oscar moment since Halle Berry. 

For some on my Twitter they were saying the embroidered beading aged the actress, I couldn’t disagree more, I thought this dress was Emma’s princess moment, it was fitted to her beautifully, and I think the gown had a modern quality to it while oozing old Hollywood glamour that I love so much. 

As always her hair and make-up was gorgeous, I love her wavy bob and her vibrant lippy.

I think this is easily one of my favourites of the night.
