Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner: Diane Kruger In Alberta Ferretti


Who: Diane Kruger 

Where: At the Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner celebrating its 180th anniversary at Teatro La Fenice during the 70th Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A purple, three quarter sleeved Alberta Ferretti crushed velvet gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with a box clutch, H. Stern diamond drop earrings, a cocktail ring, and a Jaeger-LeCoultre Joaillerie 101 Etrier watch

Verdict: There is something about velvet, I think that Diane Kruger’s latest red carpet look will split opinions, for some velvet is a little old-fashioned and conservative, however for me I love the luxe feel of the textured fabric and Diane looks uber-glamorous in this gorgeous-yet-simple Alberta Ferretti gown.

I think if this dress had been in a deep red or black I wouldn’t have like it as much – I just think the purple seems more modern and I love that she matched her plum manicure to the dress.

As well as loving the dress, I also adored Diane’s jewellery – from her elegant Jaeger-LeCoultre watch to her statement cocktail ring, and those gorgeous diamond star-shaped drop earrings – each piece is exquisite.

I know it is still sunny outside – but I am loving Diane’s wintry look – are you a fan?Jaeger_LeC-diane-kruger-5Jaeger_LeC-diane-kruger-2 Jaeger_LeC-diane-kruger-3 Jaeger_LeC-diane-kruger-4[Pics: Getty Images for Jaeger-LeCoultre]

Shoe Lust: Kate Beckinsale’s Jimmy Choo ‘Myth’ Sandals


Who: Actress Kate Beckinsale

Where: At the premiere of Paramount Pictures’ “Star Trek Into Darkness” held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A black strapless Alberta Ferretti dress with an asymmetrical hem from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo black and yellow ‘Myth’ sandals also pre-fall 2013, statement Irit silver chain embellished earrings and a black satin clutch

Verdict: Black and neon can’t fail for me and I am in love with this high-fashion yet simple look from Kate. Black is already a slimming colour but this structured dress really nips in her already tiny waist and petite frame to perfection. I also love the voluminous skirt and asymmetrical hemline on this dress, don’t you think it makes her look even tinier or is that just me???

But what makes this outfit for me has to be those exquisite Jimmy Choo ‘Myth’ heels – I love how the delicate black suede straps are mixed in with the patent neon yellow ones. The flash of neon against the black makes these beauties stand out and they stop this look from being boring.


I am also so pleased that Kate didn’t feel the need to pair these heels with matching neon yellow nail varnish as the nude shade that she is wearing complements them so much more.

Also I can’t mention her incredible Irit drop earrings – aren’t they interesting? I love the silver chain detailing, which kind of gives them a punk feel and they totally wouldn’t have looked out-of-place at last week’s Met Gala.

Are you loving these heels as much as me?

Nicole Fragrance Launch: Nicole Richie In Alberta Ferretti

Who: Nicole Richie

Where: At Macy’s Glendale Galleria in California for the launch of her debut fragrance ‘Nicole’

Wearing: A white pleated silk v-neck Alberta Ferretti dress, teamed with good jewellery and Brian Atwood leather booties featuring gold zip detailing

Verdict: This dress is super cute, I love the girlie vibe of this little white dress with the tiered pleats to the skirt, but what I am not loving is the black booties. I get that she has an eccentric individual style but these shoes just feel wrong with this pretty dress – is it just me?

Back to what I love, check out the ‘Nicole’ bottle, wow, wow, wow, how expensive does this look. Apparently, the fragrance was inspired by the various lotions and oils that Nicole’s mother used and has a fruity aroma. American followers can buy Nicole’s fragrance next month, no date on a UK launch – but I can’t wait to smell it, I think I have been sold just by the sexy ad!!!

Do you rate Nicole’s look? And are you excited to smell Nicole’s debut fragrance?

Global Gift Gala: Eva Longoria In Alberta Ferretti

Who: Eva Longoria

Where: At the 2012 Global Gift Gala held at the Gran Melia Resort Don Pepe resort in Marbella at the weekend

Wearing: A purple strapless Alberta Ferretti in satin and chiffon from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a metal clutch and dark eye make-up

Verdict: Get used to seeing purple, whether it is on the red carpet on the high street as it is set to be a huge trend come autumn/winter. Purple doesn’t always cut it for me on the red carpet, but I am loving this strapless corset gown on Eva, the streamlined silhouette is divine.

Not that she needs it but the narrow waist panels makes this gown uber-flattering and the combination of satin and chiffon really makes the dress shimmer. I also love her trademark ponytail and dark eyes. This is a great look for Eva.

Do you like Eva’s purple Alberta Ferretti look?
