I love Christmas and one of my favourite activities is to wander around London and check out all the amazing window displays. I love how retailers always step up their creativity and this year is no exception. I will be bringing you the wonders of the department stores such as Selfridges, Liberty London and Harrods, but first I wanted to take you on a trip down London’s Bond Street and bring you my favourite festive displays from the likes of Mulberry, Ralph Lauren, Tiffany’s, and Cartier who have literally wrapped up their store.
Who: Kristen Stewart
Where: At the Los Angeles premiere of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California
Wearing: A nude strapless Zuhair Murad gown featuring lace and chiffon panelling and a corseted bodice from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a Cartier bracelet
Verdict: I was expecting something short, black, and tight, not feminine, romantic and sexy, and while I love the colour, the silhouette of the gown, and that she stepped out of her comfort zone I am just not loving this look a 100%.
For me this gown would have been perfection if the skirt had a light layer underneath, everything about this gown is divine, I just can’t help but think the nude is a little too much – what do you think?
What I do absolutely adore about this look has to be her old Hollywood-inspired hair, her side-swept locks makes such a statement and her bold lippy is just divine.
What do you think of Kristen’s look?

Who: Emma Stone
Where: At the LA premiere for her new movie The Amazing Spider-Man
Wearing: A short-sleeved white Chanel dress with burgundy velvet embroidered flowers on the bodice and shoulders from the Resort 2012/3 collection, teamed with a peek-a-boo tulle underlay, silver spiked Christian Louboutin heels with ankle straps and Cartier jewellery
Verdict: Coming to the end of her world tour for Spider-Man, Emma really has pulled out all the stops wearing a gorgeous tuxedo-style jumpsuit by Elie Saab, a sexy Gucci gown, a stunning Bottega Veneta gown with a striking peplum waist, and a delicate embroidered Dolce & Gabbana dress, so it was only fair that Chanel got a look in!!!
I am not sure if this is my favourite of the looks, the Elie Saab and the Dolce & Gabbana were amazing, and come on the black Gucci gown was incredible, but this is gorgeous and elegant, while still showcasing her fun personality perfectly. I think you will all agree this has been a very successful promo tour for Emma in the fashion stakes.

Who: Elizabeth Banks
Where: At the screening of “People Like Us” in New York City
Wearing: A nude, fully embroidered Elie Saab halterneck cocktail dress, with an open back, from the autumn/winter 2012 ready-to-wear collection, teamed with Pierre Hardy strappy heels, an Edie Parker clutch, and jewellery by Cartier
Verdict: This her second look from the Elie Saab autumn/winter 2012 collection, I loved her jumpsuit that she wore to the MTV Movie Awards, but this cocktail dress is just flawless. I love the halterneck style on Elizabeth, but what makes this fully embellished dress shine for me has to be the glittering metallic ombré effect – simply gorgeous.
I love that she didn’t do too much with her accessories both the clutch and heels matched perfectly, I especially love the triple gold and nude strap heels by Pierre Hardy.
As always I am blown away by Elizabeth from head-to-toe, her dress is divine, her accessories are perfection, and her make-up and hair is flawless. LOVE it all.
