Trailer Loving: Second Look At The Great Gatsby

In May I gushed about how excited I was to see Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, over the summer I wept about the film being postponed until next year, and now I am all excited and giddy again with the release of the second trailer for the film.

This is without a doubt one of the most anticipated films for 2013. It may not be out until May but I can already see all the amazing red carpet looks that Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher are going to wear during the promo tour, the high street take on the gorgeous costumes, the soundtrack taking over the charts, and of course women all over the world are sure to fall back in love with Leonardo DiCaprio.

I love the roaring Twenties era and the Art Deco vibe, which is probably why I can’t wait to see this movie, plus I am obsessed by the Prada costumes and the Tiffany jewels that are featured, and no one can deny what a genius Baz Luhrmann is when it comes to making a classic modern.

I don’t know about anyone else but I am most certainly looking forward to dissecting every last moment – roll on May 2013.

Are you excited for The Great Gatsby to hit the big screen?

Met Gala 2012: All About The Prada Beauties

When I found out that this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition would feature Prada I was excited to see who Miuccia Prada would dress for the Met Gala and she really didn’t disappoint. In her party, to celebrate the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, was the gorgeous Diane Kruger, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Amber Valetta, Anna Wintour, Carey Mulligan, Eva Mendes, Kate Bosworth, Linda Evangelista, Mia Wasikowska, Grace Coddington, Milla Jovovich, and model Anne V.

It was hard to choose between Diane, Gwyneth, and Carey for my best dressed Prada beauty, but my obsession with Diane meant that she came out on top, closey followed by a very foxy Gwyneth.

Diane was once again flawless in her loose-fitted purple layered crepe silk chiffon Prada gown, which was finished off with a gorgeous ostrich feathered hemline. I loved that she paired her look with a Barbie pink embellished clutch, maybe an ode to Schiaparelli who loved to use shocking pink in her collections.

The best thing about Diane is you never know what she is going to wear as she really can work it all *yes I love her a little too much!!!*.

Just for her paillette-embroidered patch pockets, Gwyneth nearly took top spot in the Prada beauties, as she worked a gorgeous short steel blue halter neck dress, showing off her amazing legs. Finishing off her look were embellished Prada peep-toe heels, hooped earrings, and an exquisite centre-parted bun.

Ever since Gwyneth wore Tom Ford to the Oscars I have been super excited to see what she will wear next and last night she rocked this sexy Prada gown to the max. I am loving her confidence lately. Simply gorgeous.

It’s a tough list when this incredible two-tone gold and silver halter made of shiny paillettes that co-chairwoman Carey Mulligan wore only makes third spot, but this is testament to the exquisite designs from Prada, each one completely different and each one as fabulous as the next.

This is the best I have ever seen Carey, married life obviously agrees with her as she was glowing last night on the red carpet.

Coming in fourth and five, respectively, are Eva Mendes and Mia Wasikowska. Eva’s tangerine orange gown complements her skintone brilliantly, and I love the peplum detailing as well as the embellishments to the bodice, she really is stunning.

Mia gets in my top five ahead of Kate Bosworth in that amazing ostrich feathered mini-dress mainly because I loved the embellished collar and waist detailing of Mia’s Prada dress, as well as the rich raspberry colour.

What do you think of my top five Prada beauties? Should I have included Kate Bosworth, Anna Wintour, Milla Jovovich, Jessica Biel, or Linda Evangelista??? Leave me a comment below.

Palm Springs: Carey Mulligan Gorgeous In Prada

Who: British actress Carey Mulligan who picked up the Breakthrough Performance Award

Where: At the 2011 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala at the Palm Springs Convention Centre

Wearing: A simple-yet-elegant Prada printed cocktail paired with Cartier jewels *well they are the sponsor of course*

Verdict: I love the silhouette of this cocktail dress, and it seems to be Carey’s go-to-style, why not when she looks this good in it. I must admit though I am hoping for a lot more when it comes to the Golden Globes, Baftas and of course the Oscars – maybe something sexy, revealing and totally far-removed from her comfort zone. I seriously don’t think it will happen though.

Cover Loving: Carey Mulligan Graces October Vogue

British actress Carey Mulligan has been styled by Grace Coddington for the October issue of American Vogue. Shot by Peter Lindbergh, Carey is wearing one of my favourite Chanel Couture autumn/winter 10 looks. I really do like Carey’s hair now it is a little longer and she looks amazing on this cover that coincides with her latest film release, Wall Street 2.

Check out the behind-the-scenes of the shoot – especially the van full of exquisite couture looks.
