Nicole Fragrance Launch: Nicole Richie In Alberta Ferretti

NicoleRichieFragrance Nicole Fragrance Launch: Nicole Richie In Alberta Ferretti %tagWho: 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

BrianAtwood Video Loving: Brian Atwoods Uber Sexy Campaign Featuring Candice Swanepoel %tag

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!!!

MTV Movie Awards: Round Up – The Standouts & The Predictable

ElizabethBanksElieSaab MTV Movie Awards: Round Up   The Standouts & The Predictable %tag

This years MTV Movie Awards weren’t what I was expecting, normally for MTV’s award ceremonies there isn’t much off the red carpet that I want to report on, but this time round I was pleasantly surprised, granted there were still a few predictable choices from the likes of Jennifer Aniston, and a few shockers, yes Jenna Dewan I am talking about you, but overall it was quite an interesting red carpet.

One of my favourite looks has to be Elizabeth Banks in this gorgeous, very trendy and perfect for the MTV Awards Elie Saab jumpsuit from the autumn/winter 2012 ready-to-wear collection. I absolutely love the lace panelling to the arms, legs and neckline, as well as the flawless tailoring of the jumpsuit, which fits her perfectly. Also I am glad to see Lulu Guinness’ lips clutch hitting the red carpet.

Next up we have three of my other favourite looks from three young actresses that really did shine. From Shailene Woodley giving Elizabeth Banks a run for her money for best jumpsuit in a black tuxedo halter menswear-inspired look by Stella McCartney from the autumn/winter 2012 London Evening Collection. From this picture her hair lets it down but trust me her fishtail braid was a divine touch, I am also loving her black lucite Stella McCartney heel sandals.

Emma Stone continued to impress me in this edgy monochrome Martin Grant Paris cocktail dress, which has been modified from an autumn/winter 2012 look, the architectural detailing to the bodice really makes this dress standout, plus her gorgeous nude leather ‘Grace’ Brian Atwood heels and tousled updo. Very chic look.

Working sports luxe to perfection was Emma Watson who looked gorgeous and edgy in Brood’s autumn/winter 2012 digital-printed top and skirt. Finishing off her flawless look were Tabitha Simmons Gothic strappy sandal heels.

I do love a good collaboration and hitting the MTV Movie Awards red carpet was a one-of-a-kind Christian Siriano strapless black spiral pleated black silk taffeta mini adorned with Timex watches and Swarovski crystals and Christina Ricci worked it. Styled by Brad Goreski, this dress is different but utterly striking inspired by John Singer Sargent’s 1884 oil painting titled Portrait of Madame X. I love the detailing on the bodice with the watch gears and faces.

Now to the predictable, which might I add I don’t dislike I just wasn’t surprised with their choices. From Kristen Stewart in a Guishem tight-fitted mini from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, to Jessica Biel in a simple-yet-textured Chanel dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, I am grateful that she wore those gorgeous Barbara Bui heels as they are hot.

The most predictable award however has to go to Jennifer Aniston, who once again wore a LBD, granted this one is leather, but still it is black and from one of her go-to designers Valentino. Hey she looks good in this one shoulder number from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, but come on if any award show deserved colour it was the MTV Movie Awards.

Who gets your best dressed vote?

The Raven: Alice Eve Shows Off Her Curves in Donna Karan

AliceEveDonnaKaran The Raven: Alice Eve Shows Off Her Curves in Donna Karan %tag

Who: Actress Alice Eve

Where: At the Los Angeles screening of her new flick The Raven

Wearing: A black belted calf-length Donna Karan cocktail dress from the pre-fall 2012 collection, with an asymmetric strap across her shoulders and a split to the pencil skirt; teamed with gold jewellery and blue suede Brian Atwood open-toe heels

Verdict: I love it when you get old-school Hollywood glamour on the red carpet with a modern twist it really does make me sit up and notice. I love the cut of the dress on her, fits perfectly and really accentuates her curves, which is nice to see. But what I love most has to be the usual asymmetric strap across her shoulders, on first glance it distracted me slightly, but when you take in the whole look with her foxy curves, her wavy blonde bob, those gorgeous bright blue heels and the gold ornate jewellery it totally works.

I am really loving that Donna Karan is getting a lot of red carpet action at the moment, I loved Christa Allen in a dress that reminds me of a fifties prom dress, and I was completely blown away by the amazing Cobie Smulder in that sexy bronze and black gown. Each gown completely different, but each one is very feminine and exquisitely made. I hope this Donna Karan trend continues as I am loving the variety on the red carpet.

Essence Luncheon: Emma Stone Wows In Elie Saab

emmastoneeliesaab Essence Luncheon: Emma Stone Wows In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the 5th annual Essence ‘Black Women in Hollywood’ luncheon

Wearing: A white three-quarter sleeved Elie Saab Couture dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, paired with Brian Atwood platform heels and a nude-toned clutch

Verdict: I love, love, love this Elie Saab dress, not only does Emma Stone look gorgeous in white totally pops against her striking hair colouring, but the fit-and-flare silhouette is perfection on her, but what I adore the most has to be the cotton-wool textured embroidery detailing.

This dress really is the perfect choice for a luncheon and I love that Emma wore it, what I am wishing though is that she had worn bright coloured accessories – maybe an electic blue heel or a Barbie pink clutch – this demure dress is calling out for a pop of colour.

What do you think – pop of colour of nude-tone accessories with this angelic dress?
