Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Angelina Jolie In Elie Saab

Oscars Angelina jolie elie saab Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Angelina Jolie In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Angelina Jolie

Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A greige, fully embellished long-sleeved tulle Elie Saab Couture gown featuring a sheer bodice from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with of pale satin champagne Salvatore Ferragamo peep-toe shoes

Verdict: The red carpet really did pick up when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arrived, granted they are a gorgeous couple, but I think it was all because of this stunning sexy-yet-elegant Elie Saab Couture gown.

I have to be honest I really thought she would wear black, it would probably be Saint Laurent or Versace, and she would show off a bit of leg – but this Elie Saab was so much better and such a lovely surprise.

For some this look was ageing, maybe it was the ombre metallic hue, but for me it was pure Hollywood glamour – I love everything about this exquisite gown. The only thing I would have changed is her hair – I think having it up would have just finished off this look perfectly.

What are your thoughts about Angie’s embellished gown?

BAFTAs 2014: Lupita Nyong’o & Angelina Jolie – My Best Dressed

Lupita dior BAFTAs BAFTAs 2014: Lupita Nyong’o & Angelina Jolie   My Best Dressed %tag

This year the EE British Academy Film Awards fell in the middle of London Fashion Week so I felt like I kind of missed the whole excitement of the red carpet, seeing it back in pictures is just not the same, especially when it seems to have produced the best fashion in a number of years.

It was sad that both Jennifer Lawrence and Sandra Bullock didn’t attend, I would have loved to see what they would have worn, but I was glad to see that ’12 Years A Slave” actress Lupita Nyong’o was once again on top form in this stunning emerald-green silk Christian Dior haute couture strapless gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection.

Everything about this gown was beautifully and was easily my best dressed gown of the night and it was nice to see that Lupita really did come to London to impress. I loved it all from the jewel colour to the metallic belt and arm cuffs to the dramatic train – simply gorgeous. I really couldn’t have asked for more from her and seeing this gown has made me excited to see what she wears for the Oscars.

Another look that caught my eye was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in near-identical outfits. Not quite as cool as Madonna and her son at the Grammy’s, but I love Angie in this menswear-inspired look from Saint Laurent – it is so chic and sophisticated.

What makes this look great is the styling, I love that she wore her white shirt slightly unbuttoned to add a causal vibe to the look, which looked perfect with the untied black bow tie. Finishing off this look were those black Saint Laurent heels – the patent shine really worked with the tuxedo-stripe to the trousers. Another great look for my women in suits Pinterest board!!!

I really think that Angelina pull off this tuxedo better than Brad Pitt in his Valentino – what do you think?

Who was your best dressed?

Governors Awards: Angelina Jolie In Atelier Versace

Versace angie jolie Governors Awards: Angelina Jolie In Atelier Versace %tag

Who: Angelina Jolie

Where: At the annual Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards held in Hollywood

Wearing: A black Atelier Versace gown featuring Swarovski crystal embellishments and a lace overlay, teamed with minimal make-up and diamond earrings

Verdict: When I think of a Versace gown I think sexy and risqué, normally with a thigh-high split or a plunging neckline, so it was surprising to see Angelina Jolie’s simple and elegant Atelier Versace on the red carpet at the Governors Awards.

I love the sexiness of Versace, but I also adore the beauty and elegance of this gorgeous gown, which was totally fitting for the occasion, which saw Angelina pick up the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her dedication to humanitarian causes.

There is something about this floor-sweeping gown, maybe it is the Swarovski crystal-embellished detailing, maybe its the old Hollywood-style lace overlay to the shoulders, or maybe it’s the classic black – I just love it.

Are you a fan of Angelina’s elegant look or was you expecting more?

World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet

angelina z world tour World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet %tag

Angelina Jolie has always been one of my favourite red carpet stars, granted she doesn’t always get it right, sometimes she takes the drama of the dress a little too far, I am talking about her right leg pose at the Oscars in 2012, but no matter what she keeps you wanting more.

Well this week, less than three weeks since she announced that she had undergone a preventive double mastectomy, Angie was back on the red carpet with Brad Pitt as he promotes his new movie World War Z, and since Sunday she has wowed London, Paris and Berlin.Angelina brad London  World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet %tagFor London the star went black, simple and elegant in a gorgeous Saint Laurent gown. I just love how even when she is working an understated look she still looks fabulous and I love the sheer panelled bodice.

Keeping with black, Paris was another Saint Laurent look, this time a suit, I just love the contrast of the masculine tailoring with the feminine bow necktie on the blouse.

Angelina paris World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet %tagAngelina brad paris World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet %tag Angelina berlin World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet %tagMy favourite of her looks so far has to be this gorgeous custom strapless Ralph & Russo creation that she wore to the Berlin premiere, isn’t it divine. I am in love with the structured bodice and the rose gold accents to the waist – this is one exquisite look from Angelina and one of her best in a while.

I love everything about this look from the colour to the sculptural peplum, this is an elegant look paired with all the attitude an A-list actress should bring to the red carpet. I am so pleased that she kept her accessories minimal, pairing with just white heels and barley-there make-up.

Which look is your favourite?

Also, is it just me or have Angie and Brad coordinated hair styles? London – they both have their flowing locks down, followed by sleeked back and up in Paris, and back to long in Berlin.Angelina brad berlin World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet %tag Angelina berlin  World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet %tag[Pics: courtesy of Paramount/Getty Images by David M Bennet, Pascal Le Segretain, & Andreas Rentz]

84th Oscars: Angelina Jolie Stunning In Atelier Versace

AngieVersace 84th Oscars: Angelina Jolie Stunning In Atelier Versace %tag

Who: Angelina Jolie

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless black velvet Atelier Versace gown with thigh-high split, teamed with black peep-toe heels and accessorised with $2.5 million of Neil Lane diamond and platinum jewellery

Verdict: There are a few things that Angie loves – black, a thigh-high split, oh and Versace, and even though this look didn’t surprise me it certainly didn’t make it any less beautiful and I have to admit I loved the velvet texture of this gown. As with the Golden Globes, this is another knock-out gown, I just wanted more – I know I am asking for the earth – but with Angie’s beauty she really can work any look.

Versace designed her an exquisite gown set to her very tailored specifications I am sure, but it is just a little safe for the Oscars, I think I would have swapped the Golden Globes and this outfit around. I literally only saw this for a second on TV and I am interested to know how it moves – but I am certain that this will be on most people’s best dressed list it certainly is on mine!!!

PGAs 2012: Angelina Jolie In Michael Kors

AngieMichaelKors PGAs 2012: Angelina Jolie In Michael Kors %tag

Who: Angelina Jolie

Where: At the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills, Calfornia

Wearing: A black wool crepe and lace Michael Kors  gown, featuring long sleeves, cut-out detailing and a thigh-high split, from the pre-fall 2012 collection; teamed with black peep-toe heels and a clutch

Verdict: Lace really is having a moment lately, we saw a lot of bridal lace at the Golden Globes, and the Duchess of Cambridge who revived the trend looked regal at a recent film premiere in Alice Temperley, and Angie is the latest celebrity wanting a piece of the lace action.

For me, it isn’t a knock-out like her Golden Globes dress, but there is an elegance and sophistication about it, while still having a modern flavour with the cut-out detailing to the bodice, and the lace covered back. Of course it wouldn’t be Angie if there wasn’t a thigh-high split involved, which is perfect for this dress as it needs a sexiness about it to not look too ordinary.

Finally, congrats Angie for receiving The Stanley Kramer Award for In the Land of Blood and Honey, about a love story during the Bosnian war, which she wrote, directed and produced.

Red Carpet: Golden Globes 2012 – My Best Dressed

SarahMichelleGellar1 Red Carpet: Golden Globes 2012   My Best Dressed %tag

I always find it hard narrowing down my best dressed list, it is easier to say what I don’t like, as I fall in love a lot with red carpet gowns so naming just five is hard. Last year was a little easier because there was Olivia Wilde’s princess gown, Anne Hathaway as a gold goddess and Angelina Jolie in an emerald-green Atelier Versace, the only one to return this year’s red carpet. But here they are – in no particular order – as I couldn’t decide on an order!!

Statement Dress

Well there were a lot of boring gowns this year and for those who went for something a little bit different they really stood out for me as that is what award ceremonies are all about. For me the dress that made the most of a statement was Sarah Michelle Gellar’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown. This blue ink splotched ball gown made me swoon when I saw it on TV that I knew instantly that I had to include it. I know it is a controversial choice and for most this dress doesn’t work on her tiny frame but I kind of like that about it. Also she said her 2-year-old had a hand in picking it out – what a great a-list styling career she has ahead of her – this is a genius choice.

I couldn’t have a best-dressed list without including one of the hottest trends from this year’s awards the fishtail. I liked a lot from the classic style on Sofia to the sexiness of Reese, but for me Evan Rachel Wood’s edgy Gucci gown is just exquisite. Everything from the scale sequins to the feathered skirt and train, to the unusual dark green colour – it really is a knock-out gown.

Couldn’t be a best dressed list with a romantic, fairy tale type dress, last year I went with the traditional princess ball gown of Olivia Wilde, this year is a little unconventional but still just as gorgeous, Charlize Theron and her dusky-pink Dior couture gown. I love the oversized bow, the sexy thigh-high split and plunging neckline, but most of all I love the vintage accessories and the colour is just perfection.

The excitement was in the air at Angelina Jolie hitting the red carpet with Brad Pitt and she most certainly came prepared with a gorgeous Atelier Versace gown. What I loved the most about this gown, other than it being on Angie she never seems to get it wrong during award season, has to be how it fits her perfectly. I also adore the fashion-forward thinking of including the red flash at the neckline, it stops this dress looking a little dated, it also works superbly with her coordinated hot red lippy.

Young Starlets

I know technically I only have one spot left on my top five but I just couldn’t choose between the Hollywood starlets Emma Stone, Dianna Agron and Zooey Deschanel. Emma for me was all about the unusual pairing of purple and fuchsia in her Lanvin gown and of course that fierce eagle belt. I have to support Dianna for her excellent choice in wearing a Giles dress, not only was it the most intricate detailed dress on the red carpet, it was a huge risk for her to go for a relative unknown designer in terms of red carpet looks – but I am so glad she did as she is a vision in red. As my latest girl crush I had to include Zooey, not only did she have the best nails see below, but I was so pleased to see Prada on the Golden Globes red carpet again. What a way to return with a gorgeous green silk gown with an open back and pearl embroidered top – simply gorgeous.

Honorary Mention

I know I already over my top five but I had to include Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann, it is the perfect mix of masculine and feminine and she looks incredible. What I love so much about this tailored-suit shape has to be the ice-blue colour – so divine. Also a special mention has to go to her amazing Pomellato jewellery cuffs – HOT!!!

So who gets your vote for best dress – leave me a comment below and let me know.
