Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Cate Blanchett In Armani Prive

Oscars armani cate blanchet Oscars 2014: Best Dressed   Cate Blanchett In Armani Prive %tag

Who: Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett

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

Wearing: A nude gold Armani Prive gown with a tulle skirt, and embroidered with dégradé sequins and Swarovski crystals from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Chopard opal and diamond earrings

Verdict: Wow, the Blue Jasmine star looked incredible in this textured beauty of a gown by Armani Prive. The designer wasn’t much of a surprise, but I was surprised by the romantic, floated nature of the gown, I was thinking that she would go for something a little more structured and avant garde. I am definitely not complaining, this Princess dress looked amazing on her, and really photographed all the embroidery really well.

The only thing that made this look not shine as bright as Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace or Lupita Nyong’o in Prada was the nude, champagne hue of the gown, which seemed to be all the stars go-to colour. Stars including Idina Menzel in Reem Acra, her Blue Jasmine co-star Sally Hawkins in Valentino and Portia de Rossi in a Naeem Khan, as well as Jessica Biel in Chanel Couture and Kristin Bell in a Roberto Cavalli all wore the shade. It kind of made Cate’s not as special looking back across all the red carpet images.

Saying that I still love this gown, the mixture of the textures with the romantic floaty silhouette really is gorgeous.

I also love. love, love those statement opal and diamond Chopard earrings – it really made her Hollywood glamour look.

Are you a fan of Cate Blanchett’s Armani Prive gown?

Editorial Loving: Miley Cryus In Couture For Harper’s Bazaar

Harpers bazaar sept miley 1 Editorial Loving: Miley Cryus In Couture For Harpers Bazaar %tag

Singer Miley Cyrus has taken out her grill and put her twerking on hold to look all glamorous in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar US wearing the most gorgeous haute couture looks from the autumn/winter collections.

Styled by Lessie Lessin and shot by Terry Richardson, the Can't Stop singer looks elegant wearing looks by Armani Prive, Chanel, Dior, Valentino, Giambattista Valli, and Atelier Versace.

I love all the pieces, the styling is amazing, but my favourites has to be that exquisite ruffled Armani Prive gown draped out in front of the car, it is a gown waiting for a glitzy award show red carpet, and the gorgeous red Giambattista Valli gown captured in front of the sunset.

Every since she cut her hair she has been on a fashion transformation and this editorial shows that she is all grown up and it suits her. It is a shame really that they didn't give her the cover.

Do you like Miley's couture editorial in Harper's Bazaar?

Oscars 2013: Jessica Chastain In Giorgio Armani

Oscars jessica chastain  Oscars 2013: Jessica Chastain In Giorgio Armani  %tagWho: Jessica Chastain

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless copper-tone custom Giorgio Armani silk satin gown covered in sequins, teamed with vintage Harry Winston diamond earrings and gold bracelet from the 1960s

Verdict: This is Old Hollywood movie star wow that the Oscars is all about. I love everything from the sweetheart neckline to the colour, which shouldn’t but does work against her red locks and pale skin, to the incredible exquisite sequin detailing and the gorgeous silhouette.

One of the first to hit the red carpet, Jessica really did make an impression with this gown that made everyone up their game!!!

As well as loving her gown, her jewellery was also perfection, in her interview on the red carpet she said that the bracelet was from the 1960s and it really did accessory the gown well. I also thought her side swept curls and her bold lippy just oozed glamour – great job Jessica!!!

AACTA Awards: Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé

Cate Blanchett armani AACTA Awards: Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé %tag

Who: Cate Blanchett

Where: At the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards held at the Star Event Centre in Sydney, Australia

Wearing: A red tapering double-breasted Giorgio Armani Privé gown featuring flared sleeves, embroidered  all over with tiny red square lacquer sequins and a black trim from the spring/summer 2009 collection, teamed with black shoes and black drop earrings

Verdict: I have missed Cate Blanchett from the award season red carpet so it was nice to see her at Australia’s answer to the BAFTAS wearing this gorgeous Asian-inspired gown.

This gown is full on drama with the bold shoulders and flared hemline, full on glamour with the red shimming sequins, and full of sexy with the plunging neckline - Cate looks incredible.

We haven’t had a great Armani Privé gown this award season so it was nice to see this beauty and it gives me hope that this look will make stylists call in other pieces for the Oscars. Do you remember when Anne Hathaway wore that gorgeous gold number? I want to see more of that!!!

Do you rate Cate’s red gown?

Cover Loving: Kristen Stewart For Vanity Fair

VanityFairJuly2012 Cover Loving: Kristen Stewart For Vanity Fair %tag

Finally a Kristen Stewart cover that I can love. This is her first solo cover for Vanity Fair and it is a blinder, I am loving the uber-glam Kristen in that gorgeous Giorgio Armani Privé gown, she looks incredible and for the first time she actually looks relaxed. I have to ask was the Pomeranian dog really needed?

Shot by Mario Testino in Paris there is a gorgeous high fashion editorial accompanying this stunning cover, from Kristen wearing haute couture to the ballet, posing with the striking dancer Jérémie Bélingard **check out his incredible eyes, dreamy** in a Jean Gaultier corset, and of course the jewellery is well represented with gorgeous Fabergé diamonds and emeralds.

Maybe it is the Paris backdrop, of the incredible couture designs, but come on have you ever seen Kristen look so good in a magazine before?

84th Oscars: Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani

PenelopeCruz 84th Oscars: Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani  %tag

Who: Penelope Cruz

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

Wearing: An off-the-shoulder blue-grey Giorgio Armani organza gown, with fitted bodice, fabric that cascades into gathered pleats, teamed with Chopard jewel necklace, earrings and bracelet

Verdict: This is a classic gown, perfect for the Oscars, and the ethereal look is fabulous on her. The colour is a little different for her, and I adore her Grace Kelly make-up, hair and jewellery. Overall, this is a gorgeous look from Penelope and took me a little by surprise, which is always nice, I was expecting a full on sex-kitten look from her in a sparkly form-fitted gown. I like Penelope all demure, she has an old-Hollywood feel about her.

Pirates: Penelope Cruz in Marchesa, Emilio Pucci, Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Armani

Who: Actress Penelope Cruz

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean Premiere in Cannes, France

Wearing: A lavender coloured jewel encrusted illusion Marchesa gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with flared silk tulle skirt and shoulder detailing; paired with a Swarovski clutch and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: Other than the Disney Premiere when Penelope wore that gorgeous black Marchesa, this is my favourite look from her European promo tour so far. I always feel that Marchesa add something extra to their red carpet looks but this is a divine dress that looks like it was designed especially for Penelope. It is hugging her in all the right places, and the colour is just perfection against her skin tone. She really is beautiful.

Wearing: A navy form-fitted Stella McCartney dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with a velvet skirt and teamed with navy heels

Verdict: I always love dresses that fall just below-the-knee, and navy blue makes it perfection for me. This is a perfect look for a photocall, and Stella McCartney is one of the best choices to go for, it really does show how amazing Penelope’s body is. Great look and I am so glad that she kept her hair down.

Wearing: A knee-length black velvet embroidered Emilio Pucci dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with long sleeves and bow detailing

Verdict: This is one statement dress, normally I wouldn’t like this but Penelope oozes just enough attitude for this dress to shine. I know some will say that this is a boring look for a premiere, but I love the drama of the high neck, large bow and velvet. I like it.

Verdict: At first glance I wasn’t sure about this look. There is no question that she is looking fabulous post-baby, but I just wasn’t sure if

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Premiere in Munich, Germany

Wearing: A custom fitted red organza Giorgio Armani Privé gown with long-sleeves

Verdict: What a beauty!! I loved Anne Hathaway when she wore a similar Armani gown in sapphire satin, but this red is just perfection and looks amazing on Penelope. Simply gorgeous.
