Cannes Film Festival: Cara Delevingne In Burberry


Who: Model Cara Delevingne

Where: At the Opening Night of The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival for the Great Gatsby Cannes Film Festival premiere held at the Theatre Lumiere

Wearing: A custom-made black Burberry gown with a plunging lace neckline and long sleeves, styled with diamond Chopard jewellery and hot red lips and nails

Verdict: Burberry and Cara is a match made in heaven. This is another gorgeous black Burberry gown that looks spectacular on the model. Even though the gown is simple in its silhouette I love the lace trim to the plunging neckline, sides and the sleeves, really adds a sexiness to the gown.

I am also pleased that she vamped up this black look with her hot red lips and nails, oh and brought her infectious attitude to the red carpet – she really does sell this look to perfection.

Hot, hot, hot!!!

Met Gala 2013: The Stars Who Embraced ‘Punk – Chaos To Couture’

Safe to say that a lot of celebrities and designers struggled with the punk fashion theme at this year’s Met Gala, some embraced the studs, fishnets, the safety pins, spikes and wrapped tape look, most went with heavier eye make-up than usual, some really took the theme to town, Madonna I am talking about you, while others just ignored it completely, Gwyneth I am pointing this in your direction, and some even made their hair the focus, oh hello Anne Hathaway’s bleached blonde hair-do!!!

Usually I do individual posts for the Met Gala much like my Oscar coverage, but this year I thought I would just do a round-up of my best dressed looks, and focus more on the stars that actually made punk high-fashion.


As you would expect with it being punk, there was a lot of black, not as much leather as I thought, but lots and lots of black. My favourite black look, and one of my favourites of the night, had to be Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev in Monique Lhuillier, a look featuring a leather and lace halter corseted bodice, black lace leggings and a tulle skirt, which was made perfectly punk with her incredible side-swept hair – seriously she so nailed it!!!

Coming in at a close second to Nina in the all-black category had to be Cara Delevingne in Burberry, as well as doing a great trench coat it seems that the British heritage brand also has a naughty side with this gorgeous and sexy spiked, plunging v-neck gown, which worked perfectly with her smokey dark eyes and sleek hair and her strong eye brows.


There were a lot of other black punk looks that caught my eye – Emma Watson in a revealing wrapped tape Prabal Gurung gown, Jennifer Lawrence in a polished Dior look, and Diane Kruger in Chanel, which was more grunge than punk but I did like the pink dip-dyed touch to her ponytail and spiked clutch. Then there were the blonde crop bombshells – Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway – who both looked incredible.

Sporting a slinky black mesh Marc Jacobs gown that Kate Moss has worn, I really liked Miley’s commitment to the theme and I think I am the only one who actually loved her OTT spiked hair. In contrast, Anne’s new blonde hair-do was more sleek and worked perfectly with her very revealing, gorgeously embellished vintage Valentino gown from 1992, which totally makes up for her Oscar look. I love that both totally went for it and I think it paid off.


But there was one look that completely blew me away and that had to be Sarah Jessica Parker wearing an incredible Philip Treacy mowhawk, a dark and moody paint-splatted printed Giles gown and incredible Christian Louboutin boots – now that is how you do punk fashion!!!

Do you have a best dressed from this year’s Met Gala?

BAFTA Awards: Anne Hathaway In Burberry


Who: Anne Hathaway

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A black column Burberry gown, featuring short sleeves and a studded bodice, teamed with gold bangles, and a book-inspired clutch, showing off a vintage cover of Victor Hugo’s novel, Les Miserables

Verdict: With a rainy red carpet at last night’s BAFTAs a lot of the actresses covered up with huge coats, I am talking about you Jennifer Lawrence, while Anne Hathaway wore a sensible, slightly warmer option with this sporty, simple Burberry gown.

Even though this was one of my favourite looks of the night, I loved the understated shape and the bodice detailing really did shimmer on camera, it did leave me a little torn as I don’t think it was glamorous enough for the BAFTAs, a premiere yes, the British answer to the Oscars not so much.


But what did wow me about this look had to be her incredible book clutch, a tribute to the movie that has gained her a lot of recognition this award season. It was such a great touch to a simple outfit.

Her make-up and hair was also another highlight, which to be honest has been immaculate throughout the award season, but last night I loved her slightly grundy pixie, kohl-heavy eyes, and that pop of pink on her lips – it really did make her look incredible.

Cover Loving: Victoria Beckham For ELLE UK


I love, love, love the March issue of ELLE UK starring Victoria Beckham and so it seems does everyone who follows me on Twitter. This morning I tweeted a picture of the subscriber issue that dropped through my door and everyone went a little crazy for it and with good reason it is the best ELLE cover for a while.

When I saw the newsstand cover last week, see below, with VB wearing a Burberry leather jacket with a lace body I was blown away by how incredible she looked, but I was completely floored with the subscriber cover – wow, wow, wow – that Hussein Chalayan neon peplum top looks insane on her.

We’ve seen Victoria Beckham look amazing before on magazine covers, I have to be honest I do have a girl crush on her, but there is something special about this shoot snapped by Carter Smith that I love. The styling is cool, VB wears not only her own designs but also spring/summer 2013 looks from Lanvin and Miu Miu, I love her hair long, and I think I need to try out Burberry Beauty as they did all her make-up.

I haven’t checked out the whole magazine yet, I haven’t even finished my first flick through as I wanted to share the cover, but the mag has had a little re-vamp I have noticed it in the fonts and layout and it is looking good, and this March issue is huge with more than 400 pages. Now all I need to do is find a quiet spot to take it all in!!!

So what do you think of the Victoria Beckham covers and will you be buying the March issue of ELLE?
