Women In Film: Rose Byrne & Kiernan Shipka In Max Mara

MaxMara Byrne Rose Women In Film: Rose Byrne & Kiernan Shipka In Max Mara %tag

Who: Actress Rose Byrne

Where: At the 2014 Women in Film cocktail party hosted by Max Mara honouring Rose Byrne with the ‘Max Mara Face of the Future’ award held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A midnight blue sequinned V-neck Max Mara cocktail dress, teamed with dual-tone black and silver, toe-cap heels. matching navy blue nails and a messy waves in her hair

Verdict: As the focus of the party, Rose really did shimmer in this eye-catching sequinned dress. It is very her, signature Max Mara, and perfect for a cocktail party, but I have to be honest I kind of wish she had worn different heels, maybe something strappy, and worn a statement piece of bling like a diamond-encrusted bracelet. I adore the dress I just wish the styling had been a little different.

The party also attracted some of Hollywood’s hottest stars including Christina Hendricks, Erin Wasson, Amanda Stenberg, Darby Stanchfield, Sophia Bush, Bella Heathcote and Ahna O’Reilly, who of course all looked incredible wearing either Max Mara or Sportmax looks – but the young actress that really shined for me had to be Kiernan Shipka.

Kiernan has really been impressing of late, she really does love fashion and takes risks that really pay off, and I loved her edgy-yet-feminine look at the cocktail party. Pairing a perfectly tailored white silk Max Mara top with a beaded neckline with a fun and edgy Max Mara pleated leather skirt – should a great monochrome look made exquisite with the pop of yellow from her Christian Louboutin studded bag.

Are you as impressed with Kiernan Shipka as I am? Do you like Rose Byrne’s look?

Noah: Jennifer Connelly’s Gorgeous Promo Tour

Noah London Jennifer Connelly Noah: Jennifer Connellys Gorgeous Promo Tour %tag

I love a big film release, not only is it fun to see a blockbuster at the cinema, it also brings out the best red carpet fashion outside of award season and Cannes. For Noah, the epic biblical-inspired movie, I thought I would be gushing about Emma Watson, granted I have already and she has looked gorgeous, but for me this promo tour has all been about Jennifer Connelly, who plays Noah’s wife in the film, as she has looked sensational.

I have loved every look she has worn, from the exquisite floral embellished Alexander McQueen gown from the autumn/winter 2014 collection that she wore to the London premiere to the blush pink Givenchy Couture gown that she wore in Mexico, this gown was Oscar worthy and it was lovely to see her in it – the fuchsia jewels were incredible and it fitted her perfectly.

Jennifer has also added a touch of sex appeal to her red carpet looks as well as statement floor length gowns, I really loved her in this gorgeous mint leaf-embroidered Giambattista Valli Couture mini – that ruby-embellished neckline totally makes this one knockout look. This Madrid look was also one of my favourite make-up looks from Jennifer as well – the fuchsia lip teamed with a slick bun really makes this one amazing look – both elegant and sexy.

Actually ever detail about her Noah promo tour has been spot on – from the mix up of designers, which is nice to see, to the various hair and make-up styles that she has gone for, as well as her love of embellished and classic pieces – her stylist Leslie Fremar and glam squad really have done a great job.

It is hard to choose a favourite look, I love her classic custom Lanvin black velvet column gown that she wore in Berlin, because the thigh-high slit was classy and went perfectly with those Christian Louboutin heels and her hair styled in a tucked-under ’do is divine, but I think the pink embellished Givenchy Couture just wins out for me as this gown deserved a red carpet appearance.

Which of Jennifer Connelly’s styles gets your vote?

Noah Berlin Premiere: Emma Watson In Wes Gordon

Emma Watson Noah Berlin 6 Noah Berlin Premiere: Emma Watson In Wes Gordon %tagWho: Emma Watson

Where: At the premiere of Paramount Pictures’ ‘Noah’ in Berlin, Germany

Wearing: A navy tulle chiffon Wes Gordon floor-length gown with a racer back and bow back-detailing from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with Christian Louboutin and black stud earrings and layered rings

Verdict: I am having a bit of a girl crush on Emma Watson lately, not so much the Oscars that Vera Wang was a little blah, but every other red carpet she has hit this year she has been edgy, sexy and different. I always think it must be hard for young starlets, red carpet is so important to becoming a big star in Hollywood, and I love that Emma always looks at ease and enjoys taking chances with her style.

For some this look might seem a little plain, I have to disagree I love the sexy-sporty vibe of this statuesque look – everything from the colour, that blue is divine, to the chiffon bow and racer back – not only does she look incredible in it but she is really working the edgy slicked-back hair and bold red lippy to make this a great overall look.

Is it just me gushing over this look? I really can’t wait to see what else Emma Watson wears on this Noah promo tour.

Floral Beauty: Blake Lively In Oscar de la Renta

Blake Lively Odlr Floral Beauty: Blake Lively In Oscar de la Renta %tag

Who: Blake Lively

Where: At the 2013 ‘A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s’ event in New York City

Wearing: A white silk faille floral woodblock printed Oscar de la Renta gown featuring sorbet threadwork and sequin embroidery from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with an Oscar de la Renta sorbet crystal necklace and nude Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: I am in love with this off-the-shoulder romantic floral number by Oscar de la Renta. Not only is it beautiful, the embroidery and floral design is divine, it is nice to see a different side to Blake Lively – maybe her fashion choice was down to the fact she was accompanying her hubbie, Ryan Reynolds.

It is hard to pull off this bell-shape silhouette, but I think Blake does it with ease and looks charming and elegant – for me this beautiful gown is like a work of art.

Finishing off her look Blake stuck to the runway styling teaming her gorgeous gown with a sequinned necklace also by Oscar de la Renta, which added a modern touch to the vintage-vibe of the dress.

As well as loving the gown, her hair and make-up is also adorable and flawless, her loose, half-up hairdo looked perfection.

I have really been missing Blake Lively on the red carpet – hopefully she will make more appearances in the run up to award season.

Cover Loving: Katy Perry Graces ELLE UK’s September Issue

ELLE Sept Katy Perry sub Cover Loving: Katy Perry Graces ELLE UKs September Issue %tag

I am a big fan of Katy Perry, more so now that I know that she counts Minnie Mouse as one of her style icons, and I was excited that she was to grace the September issue of ELLE UK - but then I saw the newsstand cover and I was a little underwhelmed, mainly because of the flamingo pose.

Don’t get me wrong, Katy looks amazing in a checked Dolce & Gabbana peplum top with matching shorts, and I understand that those Christian Louboutin boots are hot – but come on that pose really is more of an editorial shot than a cover pose for me.

I prefer the simplicity of the subscriber cover, which really shows off Katy’s beauty and her incredible eyes. Granted this cover does remind me a little of Emma Stone’s Vogue UK cover from last year – but I think Katy’s makes more of an impact as it is all about her face.

Shot by Mariano Vivanco, the accompanying editorial is just as strong with Katy wearing looks from Prada, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton and Alexander Wang’s autumn/winter 2013 collections.

The issue hits newsstands on Wednesday, July 31 and I can’t wait for my subscriber copy to drop through the letterbox.

Which cover do you prefer – the subscribers or the newsstand?

Variety Power of Youth: Nina Dobrev In Versus Versace

Versus nina dobrev Variety Power of Youth: Nina Dobrev In Versus Versace %tag

Who: Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev

Where: At the Variety Power of Youth event held in Universal City, California

Wearing: A red Versus Versace safety pin shift dress, teamed with gold Christian Louboutin T-bar heels, a Susan Foster ring and a black and gold Amanda Pearl caged clutch

Verdict: Ever since the Vampire Diaries star teamed up with Hollywood stylist Ilaria Urbinati her red carpet looks have been memorable, stylish, and totally age appropriate and I have loved her fashion transformation.

This is another amazing, fashionable-yet-effortless look on Nina, I love the simplicity of the shift silhouette with the added edginess of the safety pin detailing on the shoulders, which works perfectly with the gold accents on her accessories.

Her Louboutin heels are incredible but its the Art Deco-style cylindrical clutch by Amanda Pearl that has me blown away. I wasn’t aware of this label before, but I love that the New York-based designer names all her pieces after one of her friends.

If you want to get Nina’s look the black version of this dress is currently available at Flannels for £265.84!

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

Kate Moss x Carphone Warehouse: Kate Moss In Prada & Christian Louboutin

Kate moss CW 7 Kate Moss x Carphone Warehouse: Kate Moss In Prada & Christian Louboutin %tag

Who: Supermodel Kate Moss

Where: At a lunch for her new Kate Moss Accessories Collection for Carphone Warehouse at The Club at The Ivy in London

Wearing: An off-the-shoulder black belted Prada gown with zipper detailing and a flared skirt from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Christian Louboutin ‘Arnold’ tri-colour patent leather sandals and pieces from her up-coming collection for Carphone Warehouse

Verdict: This dress has a hint of sex kitten mixed in with a dash of Audrey Hepburn and I love it. If the dress didn’t fall off-the-shoulders or have the zipper detailing this would have been a little boring, especially for someone like Kate, but those details really make this dress. Kate looks lady like and sexy.

What I love most about this look though has to be those amazing Christian Louboutin heels with the tri-colour patent leather, the pop of colour really works with the black dress and makes it more summery.

Kate Moss Accessories Collection for Carphone Warehouse: So far Kate has collaborated with Topshop, Longchamp and Fred, but I think the news that she was designing accessories for smartphone and tablets for Carphone Warehouse really threw people, but seeing these preview snaps I am impressed and really like them.

The range of accessories goes on sale nationwide later this month and “draws inspiration from the style icon’s own wardrobe” – so black, leather and metallic, and the key piece the star case was inspired by a diamond necklace that the model owns.

Prices will range from £14.99 for an iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4 case, up to £49.99 for a large tablet cover, and will be available at 10 Carphone Warehouse stores from July 24 and then nationwide and online from July 31. For more information see www.carphonewarehouse.com/KateMoss.

Are you excited about Kate’s latest collaboration? I just wish the collection included HTC cases!!!
