Met Gala 2012: Emma Stone In Custom Lanvin

Who: Actress Emma Stone

Where: At the Met Gala 2012 in New York

Wearing: A red custom-made flirty Lanvin dress design by Alber Elbaz, which featured more than 3,000 hand-embroidered plastic and crystal flower paillette’s, teamed with black heels and Lanvin crystal hair accessories

Verdict: When they were both being interviewed Alber’s said that the dress was “rainproofed”, which kind of sums up the amazing chemistry between the two, Lanvin and Emma Stone is a great match and she looked so cute it in this mini-dress. Just for the fun of this dress paired with a cute updo and bright blue nails it gets my vote for one of the best dressed.

I really do like how the dress kicks out at the waist and the embellished detailing is really interesting, I am sure for some this dress is a little too playful for the Met Gala but I think it suits her personality well, however I am sure there will be a lot of examining this look up against Victoria Justice in her floral McQ.

Do you like Emma’s look?

Video Loving: Lanvin Holiday Window


I am completely loving the direction Lanvin is going in lately, I fell in love with the brand and Alber for the autumn/winter 2011 video, and now they have kicked off December and the festive season with a fab window display at its Paris store.

The video shows the Rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré store being decorated for the holidays, with glimpses of the very chic French people walking by. What I love is how the window comes to life with the colourful Lanvin clothing, and how the models create a party atmosphere. Lanvin’s moto is to ‘Dance the night away to the end of the year!’ – I couldn’t agree more!!!

AW11 Campaign: Lanvin Asks Can Models Dance? Hell Yeah!!

If I said to you that a French fashion house went for a Pitbull song as the track to their latest campaign, be honest you would think I had lost the plot, well that is what Lanvin has done for autumn/winter 2011.

The campaign shot by Steven Meisel features super models Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmerman busting some shapes to Pitbull’s ‘I Know You Want Me’, and it is a super fun and stylish video. It is so good it even makes me question whether a print campaign was even needed.

I am so glad that this campaign turned out as well as it sounds on paper, admittedly Raquel doesn’t look as comfortable as Karen *she is a goddess after all*, and the men don’t exactly cut it for me, but you have to watch all the way to end to check out Alber Elbaz – he completely steals the show with his dance moves.

Seriously, awkward really is sexy.

Does anyone else want to plug in the Xbox Kinect and bust a few moves? I am think next gathering at mine, get glammed up and film our own Lanvin-inspired dance video – who is up for it?

Also who fancies buying me a Lanvin cape?

Golden Globes: Julianne Moore Striking In Hot Pink

Owly Images

Who: Julianne Moore

Where: At the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills

Wearing: A shocking pink Alber Elbaz custom Lanvin asymmetrical silk gown with draped shoulder detailing and gold embellished neckline, and to finish her look Julianne wore nude Lanvin platform heels and Bulgari jewels

Verdict: I love the colour, I love that she went for a bold red carpet look, hair and make-up is flawless, and the gold neckline is exquisite. However, I get that you have to sit down in the car over but I think this dress needed to be steamed more before she wore it as those creases are distracting me from the gown itself. I want to like, but I don’t think I do.
