ACM Awards 2014: Taylor Swift In J. Mendel

Who: Taylor Swift

Where: At the 49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena  in Las Vegas

Wearing: A custom J. Mendel silk crepe ivory top featuring cut-out panels to the shoulders and a black asymmetrical skirt with thigh-high split, teamed with gold jewellery, black Casadei strappy heels and a gold and black clutch

Verdict: Normally at these type of events Taylor works something romantic, normally glittery, with a very girlie vibe as the country star darling that she is. Don’t get me wrong she always looks stunning, she is gorgeous, but I really love that she went for something different with this custom J. Mendel look.

Opting for just the right amount of skin in this cut-out crop top and thigh-high split skirt this is a very edgy look for Taylor, maybe it is an attempt to stop people calling her style boring, or maybe she just decided to try something new – whatever made her go for this custom midriff showing look I am pleased she did.

As well as loving the look, I adore the styling the black and gold accessories works perfectly and those earrings are incredible. Also top marks to her glam squad her hair and make-up is flawless – she really is a stunner.

What do you think of Taylor’s latest red carpet look?

Diane Kurger Prabal Gurung Sept 13 Metropolitan Opera: Diane Kruger In Prabal Gurung %tag

Who: My girl crush Diane Kruger

Where: At the Metropolitan Opera season opening production of ‘Eugene Onegin’ in New York City

Wearing: A black and red double-face satin Prabal Gurung gown featuring a contrasting bodice, a banded waist, and a full skirt with a rise-and-fall hem from the resort 2014 collection, teamed with white Casadei for Prabal Gurung shoes and Chris Habana jewellery

Verdict: Diane Kruger really knows how to work a red carpet dress and this is another gorgeous look from her. Everything about this Prabal Gurung gown is perfection – from the black, white and red combination to the rise-and-fall hem, the straight neckline and the cool side pockets to really show off that full skirt.

As well as loving the gown, I love how Diane has styled this dress with minimal jewellery just a gold bracelet and onyx earrings, on-trend white stilettos, and a sleek side-parted bun.

Gorgeous from head-to-toe.

Are you a fan of Diane Kruger’s latest red carpet look?

BAFTA Awards: Amy Adams Wearing Elie Saab

bafta amy adams eliesaab BAFTA Awards: Amy Adams Wearing Elie Saab %tagWho: Amy Adams

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

Wearing: A black lace Elie Saab gown from the Haute Couture autumn/winter 2013 collection, featuring Chantilly lace and embroidery to the bodice, back and sleeves, and a thigh-high split to the front, teamed with gold Casadei heels and Fabergé earrings

Verdict: This gorgeous evening gown was pure glamour and stood out on last night’s BAFTA red carpet as one of the most exquisite black dresses and bless Amy she must have been freezing with all that lace on show.

When I first saw this gown on Amy I have to be honest I thought it was a little too sexy for her, she is normally elegant and glamorous, where as this is sex-bomb territory, but you know she pull it off perfectly and I think added the gold platform heels was a great touch.

I also have to give her one of the best hair-dos of the night as well, I love her top knot, a great hairstyle for the snowy conditions, and it allowed her to show off those statement ruby and diamond earrings.

This sexy look was unexpected from Amy – but I love it – do you think she pulls it off?

Jennifer lawrence AFiAwards AFI Awards 2013: Jennifer Lawrence In Prabal Gurung %tag

Who: Jennifer Lawrence

Where: At the 13th Annual AFI Awards Luncheon held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A black wool crepe sheath dress by Prabal Gurung featuring metallic and neon tweed inserts to the bodice and skirt and peplum detailing at the hips from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with black, white and Barbie pink ankle strap Casadei for Prabal Gurung heels and a Jill Milan clutch

Verdict: Well we’ve had it all from Jennifer this week on the red carpet, ranging from a very shaking/ageing look at the People’s Choice Awards to the much improved dramatic black gown at the Critics’ Choice Awards and now she has given us this gorgeous multicoloured sheath dress that I truly adore.

This is her second look from Prabal Gurung’s pre-fall 2013 collection this week and I am simply in love with it, as finally she gives us a splash of colour. This dress is not only stunning but looks incredible on her, the black panel is super flattering, but come on we have to talk about those incredible shoes – OMG I am in love these are works of art.

This look has finally made me really excited to see Jennifer walk the red carpet at the Golden Globes tomorrow. What about you do you love this look?

People Choice Awards: Chloe Moretz Wearing Simone Rocha

chloe moretz simonerocha People Choice Awards: Chloe Moretz Wearing Simone Rocha %tag

Who: 15-year-old Chloe Moretz

Where: At the People Choice Awards 2013, which were held last night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A neon yellow Simone Rocha dress from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with black Casadei heels

Verdict: I do love it when London Fashion Week designers are on the red carpet, especially when they are exciting talents such as Simeon Rocha, I think it was a calculated risk for Chloe credit to wear an emerging designer and it totally paid off.

I love the daisy design of the floral lace as it is just something a little different, but for me this dress is all about the vibrancy of the neon colour, or as I like to say highlighter yellow and she really did stand out.

I would have loved to have seen Chloe next to Lea Michele in her Barbie pink dress – and then all we would have needed is someone in neon green to complete my highlighter pen set!!!

Who: Katy Perry

Where: At the 2011 People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A sweet-heart strapless  purple and aqua tulle Betsey Johnson ball-gown, with its full skirted dress, and tea length hemline, nipped in with an aqua waist-band, finished off with pink Casadei peep-toe heels

Verdict: Yeah fun Katy is back, don’t get me wrong elegant Katy was nice, but this dress is perfect on her. I love the retro 50’s prom style look of this colourful dress from the Betsey Johnson spring/summer 2011 collection, and to be honest as soon as saw this picture I thought of Barbie. This is totally a Barbie princess gown.

I love the silly string detailing on the dress, and the fact that Katy coordinated her toe nails with an aqua shade, and her signature pink lippy – completely gorgeous and I think Katy makes a great Barbie!!
