Primetime Emmy Awards: Julianna Margulies in Giambattista Valli Couture

Who: Julianna Margulies

Where: At the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless floral printed Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with Brian Atwood heels and Fred Leighton jewellery

Verdict: I promise I am not going to do a separate post for each and every look off the Emmy Awards red carpet but I have picked out a number of looks that I adored, or surprised me, and this look from Julianna Margulies ticks both columns.

Normally, Julianna goes for Armani or Calvin Klein she likes the minimalist structured gowns, and I have to be honest I thought it would have been another Armani look, but this divine couture gown from Giambattista Valli is stunning on her. I love the floral pattern, the hidden pockets, and her bling Fred Leighton earrings finishes off her look perfectly.

This is a hot look and I am glad that she stepped out of her comfort zone as she looks beautiful and she is definitely one of my best dressed of the night.

Do you rate Julianna in this haute couture Giambattista Valli?

Toronto Film Festival: Anna Kendrick Looks Edgy In Mulberry

Who: Twilight and Up In The Air actress Anna Kendrick

Where: At the premiere for her new flick The Company You Keep, which took place during the Toronto Film Festival

Wearing: Mulberry’s moonlight tie dye silk ‘Fitted Nightie Dress’ from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with Brian Atwood strappy heels and a bronze clutch

Verdict: There is something about Anna Kendrick, she can look a little uncomfortable in dresses that are too sexy, she sometimes doesn’t quite pull off high-fashion looks, but I am loving that she has chosen this edgy look as she really pulls it off.

This printed ‘Nightie’ dress is incredible, I love the contoured style of the dress it really suits her tiny frame, but it is the ethereal print featuring tie-dye shades of midnight blue, orange and black that makes this dress divine for me. It is a little different for a red carpet look and that is why it stands out. This is a really great look from Anna.

Buy Her Style: Fancy buying Anna’s silk dress? Well you can pick it up now from Mulberry for £2,500 – bargain right!!!

What do you think of Anna’s edgier look?

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?

Video Loving: Brian Atwood’s Uber Sexy Campaign Featuring Candice Swanepoel

Now if there was ever a fashion film and print campaign that was destined to be banned it is this uber sexy campaign from Brian Atwood and I love it.

Inspired by the allure of sexual submission, fearless beauty, and cinemagraphic voyeurism, this is one sexy campaign featuring supermodel Candice Swanepoel wearing thigh-high boots, animal print stillettos, bondage strapped heels and not much else.

To be honest when I first saw the print campaign and film, both shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, it made me think it was advertising Agent Provocateur or some other lingerie brand as Candice is seen gyrating up and down a wall of TV screens playing porn, or as the release states “reliving the previous night’s fantasy”, and it is hard to focus on the shoes!!!

So what do you think of the fashion film? It is the first film from The Sex Is In The Heel series, I am intrigued to see how anything can follow this in the sexy stakes as it is seriously steamy!!!
