Met Gala 2012: Topshop Dresses Jamie and Dree

Not content with being outdone by H&M who have been working the celebrity red carpet circuit of late, Topshop dressed two big stars for the Met Gala 2012 in New York last night. First up is actress Jamie King, who was created a custom-made dress using the Unique autumn/winter 2012 devore silk fabric with cross motifs, and the Topshop in-house design team decided that her dress needed to be a bold red colour, and I am glad they did as the colour really worked.

This dress however is gorgeous from the front, but it is exquisite when you see the open-back teamed with that gorgeous Bulgari necklace that draped down her back, one of the best jewels of the night for me. Oh and that train is just divine, finishes off the dress perfectly. 

The high street brand also modified one of the dresses from the Topshop Unique autumn/winter 2012 catwalk show for model Dree Hemingway. The gold sequinned dress was apparently going to be floor-length, but the team decided to make it knee-length and I am so glad they did as I think it works better falling just below her knee. I also love the sheer panelling to the bust, gives it a sexy vibe that works with her pop of red lippy.

So which Topshop dress gets your vote – Jamie or Dree?

I am wondering if there is a formalwear collection in the works for Topshop? If there was would you buy?

Cover Loving: Megan Fox Ladylike For Jalouse

It is fair to say that Megan Fox is generally sporting lingerie or a bikini in most of her magazine covers, I don’t think I have ever seen her look so ladylike before, and I thank Jalouse for making my day. Jalouse is one of my favourite French magazines their editorial spreads are so impressive and creative and I am excited about the April issue after seeing these snaps of Megan Fox taken by Alexei Hay.

I am not saying that I love everything about the cover, the rubber gloves are creeping me out slightly, but what I do love is the ladylike Emporio Armani jacket, the sky blue colour is gorgeous against her skintone, as well as the Philip Treacy hat, the side braid, and those gorgeous Harry Winston and Bulgari jewels. Seriously chic styling, oh and her face is flawless.

The rest of the editorial is just as amazing, I love the old school Hollywood styling, the glam make-up, the tears, the crazy amount of hats, the lashings of jewels, and it has made me realise how much I have been missing Megan!!!

I am loving Megan Fox as a mannequin doll in this shot – such great styling this Proenza Schouler dress is divine.

I adore this Salvatore Ferragamo striped tuxedo jacket from the spring/summer 2012 collection Spring 2012.

Elton John Oscar Party: Dita Von Teese In Jenny Packham

Who: Dita Von Teese

Where: At the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party held at the City of West Hollywood Park

Wearing: A pale pink chiffon beaded cap sleeve Jenny Packham gown with keyhole detailing on the bodice, cut-out panels to the shoulders and pleated draped detailing to the front, teamed with Swarovski clutch, Bulgari diamond jewellery and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: I make no secret that I have a style crush on the burlesque beauty, but is is surprising when she wears gorgeous gowns like this? I was surprised not to see Jenny Packham on the main Oscar red carpet, especially after Angelina Jolie and Kate Winslet have both worn her designs recently. This is a very elegant look, perfect for the occasion and I love the sparkly cap sleeves. Also does anyone else do red lippy quite as well as Dita? Gorgeous!!!

Golden Globes: Claire Danes In J. Mendel

Who: Claire Danes

Where: At the 69th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A black and ecru couture J. Mendel draped front gown with embroidered cap sleeves, and open back detailing, inspired by a shorter pre-fall 2012 look, teamed with platinum earrings with princess cut diamonds from Bulgari’s High Jewellery Collection and a white gold bracelet with diamonds

Verdict: I love al the crystal embellishment detailing on the shoulders and around the waist – it kind of has a warrior-esq vibe to it – but as Claire rightly put it “is all about the back” I totally agree!!!

So who do you think has the best open back Claire or Zooey?

Golden Globes: Sarah Michelle Gellar In Monique Lhuillier

Who: Sarah Michelle Gellar

Where: At the 69th annual Golden Globes in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless blue tie-dye effect Monique Lhuillier gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with Bulgari earrings, ring and white gold bracelets, Jimmy Choo heels and a super high ponytail

Verdict: A bold choice, I have to admit this was one of the gowns I had mentally picked out from the collections and I wondered if anyone would dare to wear it. I am so pleased that it was one of my favourite actress – I was/am a super Buffy fan. I am sure that this dress will make a lot of best dressed lists including mine, but will also split opinion, I have already seen people tweeting that it is a “bizarre choice” – I couldn’t disagree more, I love it!!!

I am also pleased that two dresses in and the blue is going strong – but what I love more than the colour and the tie-dye effect has to be the drama of the gown – made for an award ceremony!!!

Venice Film Festival: Selma Blair Is Red Hot In Lanvin

Who: Actress Selma Blair

Where: At the Dark Horse premiere during the 68th Venice International Film Festival at Palazzo del Cinema

Wearing: A red silk crepe Lanvin gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, teamed with Bulgari drop earrings and ring

Verdict: Granted not the most flattered of dresses from certain angles, but I like it mainly because of the colour, red is so hot this season and I do think she wears the volume of the cut well. I like that deep-v at the back adds a sexy touch, also check out that bling on her finger – Bulgari jewels at there very best.

Cannes 2011: Kirsten Dunst Wears Rodarte

Who: Kirsten Dunst

Where: At the Melancholia premiere during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A polka dot halterneck Rodarte gown with mermaid hem, teamed with Bulgari jewels. Kirsten is wearing a pair Astrale earrings in white gold adorned with diamonds, a white gold ring and a vintage bracelet in platinum set with diamonds and emeralds

Verdict: I am not always the biggest fan of Kirsten Dunst, but I have to give it to her this is a great Rodarte gown, and it does seem the perfect debut for the brand in Cannes. I know I couldn’t believe it either. I always think mermaid silhouettes are the most elegant on the red carpet, they just add an extra sparkle of glamour, and I love the polka dots on this one.
