Olivia Wilde: One Night, Two Stunning Looks

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?

Cannes 2012: Diane Kruger Looking Girlie In Calvin Klein

Who: Actress & 2012 Cannes Film Festival Juror Diane Kruger

Where: At Calvin Klein’s women in film event in Cannes

Wearing: A coral textured midi Calvin Klein Collection dress with a plunging neckline, that was modified from the autumn/winter 2012 collection it was presented in black; finishing her look were white Givenchy strappy heels and a metallic box clutch

Verdict: The first thing I noticed and I am sure everyone else did as well has to be her boobs they look incredible in this dress without making her look tacky, which is hard to do when they are completely on show like this. I love the colour, I love the midi length on her, the silhouette is sweet, and her heels are insane and work perfectly with the dress, but it doesn’t feel enough for Cannes.

Don’t get me wrong she does look stunning, and I am loving her slick ponytail, but this dress is just nice, and nice just isn’t enough for Cannes. Am I being extra picky? I feel that if this was any other party, photocall, or premiere I probably would have loved it but something is holding me back – what do you think is this look a winner?

The Hunger Games: Jennifer Lawrence In Calvin Klein

Who: Jennifer Lawrence

Where: At a special NYC screening of The Hunger Games, which hits cinemas this week

Wearing: A forest green silk Calvin Klein Collection dress with a plunging neckline, a pleated skirt and matching belt from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: I love this dress, super flattering, a gorgeous colour, and the deep v neckline is so sexy it is nice to see her having a little fun with her red carpet appearances. This promo tour has been crazy busy, first we had LA, then London, Paris and Berlin, and now the Hunger Games has hit up New York and I am liking this flirty side of her.

I am so excited to see the movie – I am hoping to see it tomorrow – anyone else going?

Liam Hemsworth also looks a little dapper in his stone grey Calvin Klein Collection suit.

V Magazine: Jennifer Lopez Packs A Punch

Wow, how gorgeously fierce does Jennifer Lopez look on the cover of the sports issue of V Magazine, I seriously don’t think I have seen this side of her in an editorial shoot before and I love it. Shot by Mario Testino, J-Lo shows that she still packs a punch for the spring 2012 issue, but what I love most is how far removed this boxing-inspired spread is from her normally sexy glamour approach.

Ever since Jennifer Lopez joined American Idol I have to admit I have seen her in a different light, OK she doesn’t generally stray far from her trademark sexy curve hugging looks on the red carpet, but what she always brings is an attitude that just excites, and that is what I see in this editorial. I don’t think many stars would want to pose in boxing gear and still look hot!!!

This black and white picture is one of my favourites from the editorial spread – even scrunching up her face she looks gorgeous. This has got to be the best editorial spread of Jennifer Lopez I have ever seen – what do you think do you like?

Vanity Fair Party: Diane Kruger Sexy In Calvin Klein

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood

Wearing: A red peek-a-boo Calvin Klein Collection dress, with a plunging neckline that shows a flash of her lacy bra

Verdict: I do have a style crush on Diane Kruger, seriously this blonde bombshell can do no wrong in my eyes, I love that she can switch from haute couture to sexy vixen from event-to-event. Whereas other stars could have made the flash of lace a little cheap, Diane works it perfectly and seeing this look makes me sad that she didn’t do the main event as she has a great red carpet presence. Also the high ponytail and smoky eyes is the perfect finish to a great outfit.

This is one sexy look and I love it!!!

Golden Globes: Heidi Klum In Custom Calvin Klein

Who: Heidi Klum

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

Wearing: A custom nude silk crepe Calvin Klein Collection dress with plunging back, designed by Francisco Costa, teamed with a bold Lorraine Schwartz turquoise necklace and ring

Verdict: The supermodel looks amazing and I think it is all to do with that OMG necklace, which on first glance I thought was part of the dress. What makes this look one of the best is that it is simple-but-beautiful – just proofing that you don’t always have to go for the OTT look. I also think the blush tone helps – how gorgeous is that colour.

Great look – even better necklace!!!

Cover Loving: Lara Stone As Never Before Seen

I have featured a number of Lara Stone covers, she really does seem to be an editorial dream model. For most she goes for bold, in Gucci for Paris Vogue, and another cover for the French title showing off her bosoms, but for the first time Lara has been given a minimalist vibe for Vogue Russia’s July 2011 cover.

Shot by Mark Seliger, I just love how honest the portrait shot is, as well as the fact that I don’t think I have seen a shot of her like this before, she has been stripped back and looks fabulous. Wearing Calvin Klein, the styling by Camilla Nickerson is perfection, as to make this cover gorgeous the clothes did need to take a back seat. I have to admit I love Lara Stone, but even I was surprised she could deliver such emotion, I adore her icy glare on this cover.

I know some people will say that it isn’t a cover shot, but that is possible why it works for me, I am glad that Vogue Russia went for something different. I also love the shots for the accompanying editorial, if like me you pick up a lot of international mags I totally recommend this one!!
