Cover Loving: Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue

VF Hollywood issue 2014 Cover Loving: Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue %tagOne of my favourite covers of the year has to be the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue, I love seeing which stars have made the cut, the poses, the amazing fashion, and of course seeing who stands out. Last year didn’t wow me, OK it was great seeing Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck in bed together, but this year’s is more glamorous and I love it.

For the 20th anniversary cover of the Hollywood issue, Julia Roberts shows off her fabulous legs surrounded by Chiwetel EjioforIdris Elba, and a very dapper looking George Clooney. But the really cover doesn’t really wow until you see the whole three-panel foldout with the statuesque Lupita Nyong’o, who is really shining in her slinky gold Calvin Klein gown along with Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Naomie Harris.

The cover shot by Annie Leibovitz also features Michael B. Jordan, Brie Larson, Chadwick Boseman and Lea Seydoux for a very elegant Hollywood look at the best stars of the year.

Which star stands out for you on this year’s Vanity Fair Hollywood issue?

Critics’ Choice Awards: Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein

Lupita nyongo calvin klein Critics Choice Awards: Lupita Nyongo In Calvin Klein %tag

Who: Critics’ Choice winner Lupita Nyong’o 

Where: At the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica

Wearing: A custom ivory silk Calvin Klein Collection bandeau dress featuring cut-out detailing, teamed with a gold box clutch

Verdict: I love it when Hollywood newcomers outshine the old guard during award season, the winner of the best supporting actress award wowed at the Golden Globes, but I think this Calvin Klein bandeau dress is her best look let – she looks flawless.

Everything from the bandeau style to the cut-out detailing and the crisp white colour – I love this look from head-to-toe – she really is red carpet perfection.

I loved Margot Robbie in Elie Saab and Amy Adams’ pop of pink in Roland Mouret – but for me Lupita is hands down my favourite red carpet look from this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

Who was your best dressed?

Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue – Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene

ELLE US Nov pcruz 2 Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue   Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene %tag

American ELLE’s Hollywood issue is one of my favourite magazines to pick up as I love the mix of actresses they go for – and this year is no exception with Reese Witherspoon, Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, and Melissa McCarthy all gracing the cover.

My favourite cover this year is a difficult choice – between Penélope Cruz, who looks stunning wearing a cashmere sweater by The Row and Chopard jewellery – I love how they’ve kept her make-up to a minimal to show off her adorable freckles, and Shailene Woodley, even though this cover looks set for summer rather than autumn wearing Calvin Klein Swimwear there is something different about the pose that makes it stand out.

Reese Witherspoon’s cover is probably the most predictable, but nevertheless she still looks stunning in a sexy Versace number. The cover I think I was most disappointed with was Melissa McCarthy styled in an oversized Marina Rinaldi coat with OTT eighties hair – I can only imagine how much hairspray they used.

Online there also seems to be another two covers featuring Marion Cotillard working the crop top trend in Dior, and British actress Naomie Harris looking absolutely gorgeous in a Calvin Klein Collection wrap halter top and skirt, very similar to the one that Rose Byrne wore to the Primetime Emmys.

Considering this is a November cover there is a lot of skin on show – especially with the main fashion tagline being ‘the perfect coat shape’. It is hard to decide on my favourite but I think it has to be Penélope Cruz as she just looks gorgeous and is really the only one, except for Melissa wearing anything autumn related.

Which cover is your favourite? Also do you think these covers seem more appropriate for spring/summer than November?

Save the Children Gala: Jennifer Garner In Calvin Klein

Calvin klein jennifer garner Save the Children Gala: Jennifer Garner In Calvin Klein %tag

Who: Jennifer Garner

Where: At the first-ever Save the Children benefit Gala held at Cipriani in New York

Wearing: A knee-length black dress by Calvin Klein with pockets and spaghetti straps, teamed with black heels, a black clutch and diamond earrings and bracelet

Verdict: This look is so effortless for Jennifer. The dress is chic, the accessories are perfect, and she is wearing just the right amount of sparkles – I love this look.

There isn’t anything special about this look, there is no pop of colour, she hasn’t even done anything amazing with her hair, but you know it just works – she really does look elegant and natural and I adore her make-up.

The event hosted by Jenna Bush Hager, honoured not only the Alias actress with the Advocate Award for her support for Save the Children but also former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who looked amazing in bubblegum-pink number.

What do you think of Jennifer Garner’s chic black dress?

Star Trek Into Darkness: Zoe Saldana In Calvin Klein

zoe saldana berlin Star Trek Into Darkness: Zoe Saldana In Calvin Klein %tag

Who: Actress Zoe Saldana

Where: At the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ photocall held at the China Club in Berlin, Germany

Wearing: A grey Calvin Klein skirt and crop top featuring criss-cross buckle straps to the back, both from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Tahi’ sandals

Verdict: I know everyone is excited about the Great Gatsby promo tour to begin, I am as well, but I am so pleased to see Zoe Saldana on the red carpet trail for the up-coming Star Trek movie as she always brings something a little different.

This look is sexy, chic and edgy all at the same time, which is a pretty hard to do. I love the sophisticated vibe of the pleated wool skirt, the colour, the length and the large pleats are perfection. Whereas most celebrities would have probably paired with a white shirt and completed the sophisticated vibe, I love that Zoe added a sexy touch by teaming with a matching crop top, which with her incredible figure looked amazing.

So we’ve had chic and sexy and then Zoe turns around and gives us a whole lot of edge with those incredible criss-cross buckle straps, I seriously wish I had the figure to pull this look off.

Finishing up her incredible look are a great pair of heels, these nude Jimmy Choo sandals with their flower inspired perforated detailing are hot.

With a look like this for a photocall I can’t wait to see her premiere look!!!

Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Chastain In Calvin Klein Collection

jessica chastain calvin kle Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Chastain In Calvin Klein Collection %tag

Who: Jessica Chastain, who picked up the award for Best Actress in a Drama for her role in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A seaform silk crepe custom Calvin Klein Collection halter dress, teamed with Harry Winston diamonds

Verdict: This dress was not what I was expecting from Jessica Chastain, I was expecting something a little more edgy, instead this gown has an ethereal quality to it that I don’t think translated well.

I look at it and I want to love it, and in part I do, the colour especially is perfection against her skintone and her fiery coloured hair, and I loved the backless style of the gown, I just felt it wasn’t fitted very well.

Considering this was a custom gown it just looked like the bodice was a little big and the silhouette of the gown was unflattering it really needed to be nipped in more at her waist – she has a great figure that isn’t being shown off in this dress.

What did totally work were her jewels as she was dripping in Harry Winston diamonds worth $3 million – that cuff is gorgeous.

Do you rate Jessica’s look?

Olivia Wilde: One Night, Two Stunning Looks

OliviaWildeButter Olivia Wilde: One Night, Two Stunning Looks %tag

There is something different about Olivia Wilde of late, don’t get me wrong she has always been stunning, extremely beautiful and graceful, but she seriously hasn’t wowed me in a long time, so long I had to delve deep into the Fashionista Barbie archives to find her in that gorgeous Marchesa gown that she wore to the  68th annual Golden Globe Awards – now that was a frock. Since then she really hasn’t stood out on my radar, well that was until last night in New York where she wore two amazing dresses as she promotes her new film Butter.

First up was a very chic Alexander McQueen white leaf crepe pencil dress from the Resort 2013 collection, which fitted her perfectly. What I love most about this look, other than being very envious of her fab body, is that she wore this in white, she could have so easily gone for black and it wouldn’t have had the same impact, plus I adore white teamed with gold accessories – those Giuseppe Zanotti heels are amazing. Plus what better way to finish off a look than with an Alexander McQueen skull box clutch - absolutely love it from head-to-toe.

Second up, and by no means least, was her incredible transformation into a green printed Calvin Klein Collection cape dress for the afterparty and the launch of Calvin Klein’s new men’s fragrance, Encounter, you know the one with hunky Alexander Skarsgård as the face.

Her stylist, Karla Welch, who has been a busy lady lately also styling Zooey Deschanel and Kelly Osbourne at the Emmys, has really done an incredible job. I love cape dresses – hey Gwyneth Paltrow really did steal the show at the Oscars in Tom Ford, and I love any cape on a gown – especially when being worn by Sarah Jessica Parker, her red Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown was divine, and I really do feel that Olivia’s Calvin Klein look is just as gorgeous.

I have to admit I love seeing cape gowns go dramatic and skim the floor but I actually think those Calvin Klein Collection cobra chain heels really pull off this look falling just above the ankle. Another stunning look from Olivia.

Which of the looks do you think Olivia works best?
