CHOO.08°: Kate Bosworth In Dior & Jimmy Choo

Kate Bosworth Jimmy Choo CHOO.08°: Kate Bosworth In Dior & Jimmy Choo %tag

Who: Kate Bosworth

Where: At Jimmy Choo’s launch part of CHOO.08° in Los Angeles

Wearing: An ivory Christian Dior knee-length dress with embellishments on the bodice, teamed with glittery Jimmy Choo Anouk heels and a matching Jimmy Choo Calista clutch

Verdict: I have never really got the love affair with Kate Bosworth, maybe it is because she is more known for her street-style looks than red carpet, so when I saw her look at Jimmy Choo’s party to celebrate CHOO.08˚ collection I was floored and had to share.

Not only is this the most ladylike I have ever seen the actress, that A-line Dior dress is divine and really shows off her tiny waist. But it is her make-up that caught my eye – it is impeccable – I adore her pink lippy and her hair swept to one side. It is basically just gorgeous.

But what makes this look has to be those amazing heels. I have had my eye on the Jimmy Choo Anouk pointy toe heel for a while, it basically comes in tons of colours and is a classic, this a designer shoe you will wear a lot. Plus at just shy of £400 it isn’t the most expensive designer shoe out there.

What you think of Kate’s ladylike look?

Love the Jimmy Choo Anouk style – here are a few of my favourites in store now:

Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Jennifer Lawrence In Dior

Oscars dior Jennifer lawrence Oscars 2014: Best Dressed   Jennifer Lawrence In Dior %tag

Who: Jennifer Lawrence

Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A strapless red wool crepe Dior Haute Couture dress, teamed with Neil Lane jewellery, black Brian Atwood shoes, and a Ferragamo clutch

Verdict: Jennifer Lawrence and her blonde pixie cut really is growing on me especially paired with this gorgeous red couture gown. No surprise that the actress wore Dior but I can’t have been the only one hoping for a miracle – no matter how gorgeous this statuesque dress is.

What I love most about this look, other than the peplum detailing, has to be the sparkling Neil Lane diamonds that she is wearing, which were reportedly worth $3 million. The necklace alone was a staggering $2 million due to its 100 carats of diamonds. What are your thoughts on the repeated necklace down the back? She did this last year to great effect but this year I’m not too sure.

One thing is for sure her hair and make-up was flawless and she was once again on great form on the red carpet and during the ceremony. Oh and if you missed her clumsy red carpet moment – see below – this is just another reason I want her to be my BFF. Plus all the haters out there saying she did it for attention – really – come off it.

Were you a fan of Jennifer’s Oscar gown?

BAFTAs 2014: Lupita Nyong’o & Angelina Jolie – My Best Dressed

Lupita dior BAFTAs BAFTAs 2014: Lupita Nyong’o & Angelina Jolie   My Best Dressed %tag

This year the EE British Academy Film Awards fell in the middle of London Fashion Week so I felt like I kind of missed the whole excitement of the red carpet, seeing it back in pictures is just not the same, especially when it seems to have produced the best fashion in a number of years.

It was sad that both Jennifer Lawrence and Sandra Bullock didn’t attend, I would have loved to see what they would have worn, but I was glad to see that ’12 Years A Slave” actress Lupita Nyong’o was once again on top form in this stunning emerald-green silk Christian Dior haute couture strapless gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection.

Everything about this gown was beautifully and was easily my best dressed gown of the night and it was nice to see that Lupita really did come to London to impress. I loved it all from the jewel colour to the metallic belt and arm cuffs to the dramatic train – simply gorgeous. I really couldn’t have asked for more from her and seeing this gown has made me excited to see what she wears for the Oscars.

Another look that caught my eye was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in near-identical outfits. Not quite as cool as Madonna and her son at the Grammy’s, but I love Angie in this menswear-inspired look from Saint Laurent – it is so chic and sophisticated.

What makes this look great is the styling, I love that she wore her white shirt slightly unbuttoned to add a causal vibe to the look, which looked perfect with the untied black bow tie. Finishing off this look were those black Saint Laurent heels – the patent shine really worked with the tuxedo-stripe to the trousers. Another great look for my women in suits Pinterest board!!!

I really think that Angelina pull off this tuxedo better than Brad Pitt in his Valentino – what do you think?

Who was your best dressed?

Wedding Inspiration: The Couture Bride

Elie saab couture Wedding Inspiration: The Couture Bride %tag

I love checking out the couture collections from Paris, as I am always in awe at the craftsmanship that goes into each piece, and I adore that no gown is too big when it comes to couture. Normally for the spring shows I am pairing up beautiful gowns with gorgeous actresses and hoping that they will wear on the Oscars red carpet, this year however being surrounded with wedding magazines getting inspiration for my own gown I thought I would share some couture bride inspiration.

Top of my wishlist, if I won the lottery, would have to be getting a wedding dress designed by Elie Saab, this man is a genius and his spring 2014 collection was another stunning scene of decadent elegance, gown after gown was just beautiful and the bridal moments were stunning.

The final gown above literally took my breath away when I was watching the live-stream, everything from the off-white hue to the exquisite embroidered detailing and voluminous silhouette – simply stunning. Just imagine how magical it would be to wear a dress like this on your wedding day, you could rest assured that no-one would be stealing your spotlight!!!

As well as Elie Saab, the ethereal musical Valentino gown really caught my eye, so it doesn’t scream traditional bridal gown but there is something about that I think would work for a wedding, especially if you have a love of music.

Other gorgeous dresses that I loved included Dior’s simple-yet-modern gown with its textured perforation dot design, the statement peplum gown from Alexis Mabille’s exquisite collection, and the delicate lace embroidered Valentino gown that will never go out of fashion. Also how divine is this heavily embellished white gown by Georges Hobeika – so swoon worthy!!!

As well as the divine, couture weeks also showcases the flamboyant and more out-there of pieces, including some that could work for some very confident brides. How about the showgirl look from Jean Paul Gaultier or how about walking down the aisle in Stéphane Rolland’s white jumpsuit with wings?

If you won the lottery – which Couture bride would you be?

SAG Awards: Trend – Various Shades Of Blue

463563745 SAG Awards: Trend   Various Shades Of Blue %tag

There is always something special about the Screen Actors Guild Awards, maybe it is the fact that they are all judging one another, or that the red carpet has a relaxed nature while still being uber glamorous, or that it comes so soon after the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards that I am so giddy about the award season. Whatever it is, it never seems to disappoint.

Last year it was all about Nina Dobrev’s gorgeous Elie Saab and Jennifer Garner sparkling in Oscar de la Renta, and this year it seems that all my best dressed wore hues of blue. From the gorgeous Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi to Jennifer Lawrence’s shimmering Dior Couture gown.

I was just going to do my best three looks but I have to be honest I couldn’t decide who to cut – so it is now my top 4 beauties from the SAG Awards red carpet!!!

In at number one has to be American Hustle’s Amy Adams in this Antonio Berardi gown, not only is this shade of blue divine, but the architectural neckline and shoulder cut-out detail really marries sexy and elegance all at the same time, and the fit is impeccable on her. Amy really is having a great award season.

My second best is newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, this girl continues to impress me every time she steps out onto the red carpet and this custom Gucci gown is beautiful. It isn’t often that you see turquoise on the red carpet, but this hue really shined on her, and it was made even better with those gorgeous floral embroidered straps. Another breathtaking look – I think Lupita is easily my favourite red carpet star of the moment.

Third place was a tough decision between the two Jennifer’s – from the statuesque Jennifer Garner in a custom Max Mara gown and Jennifer Lawrence in a shimmering Dior Couture number. Both are beautiful, both so different. I think the constellation of multicoloured sequins on J-Law’s gown just pips Garner as it really did shimmer on TV, but I do love the simplicity of Garner’s – that is a great silhouette on her.

Dior Overload: Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Games Tour

Hunger Games JL Dior Rome Dior Overload: Jennifer Lawrences Hunger Games Tour %tag

Rome Premiere

It was kind of a given that for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo tour that Jennifer Lawrence, who is the face of Miss Dior, would wear pieces from the French fashion house – but was anyone really expecting it to be every single premiere that she attended? From London to Berlin to Madrid to Rome to Paris to Los Angeles and finally to New York – each step of the tour a new Dior look to go with her pixie cut.

On first reflection I was disappointed, not one was customised, some even looked ill-fitted, and not one really wowed me as the star of the film should, to be honest I felt that Elizabeth Banks really took the fashion stakes away from the leading lady.

Then I decided to look at the looks together and I have to give it to Jennifer and her styling team that each look is different – we have sheer gowns, embroidered dresses, statement draping, and even outerwear glammed up for the red carpet.

Los Angeles Premiere

My favourite is between the Los Angeles Dior Couture gown, where Jennifer wore a sheer grey knitted dress over a body showing off her great pins, the vanilla silk Dior Haute Couture dress that she wore to the Rome premiere, I just love the asymmetrical neckline, and the navy blue silk strapless dress in Madrid from the Dior Resort 2014 collection. I think what helps each of these looks is how fabulous her pixie cut looks – especially in Madrid where it reminded me of Cameron Diaz‘s hair in  ‘There’s Something About Mary’.

There were a few looks that I didn’t like, London mainly, that multicoloured-embroidered white silk dress was just unflattering and quite ageing on her, I actually preferred it when she put on the red coat. I also thought the Berlin Dior Haute Couture cotton and pale blue embroidered guipure coat was just boring compared to Elizabeth Bank’s shimmering Elie Saab, and New York was just a little underwhelming.

I understand that when an actress signs up as a face that she has to show a little loyalty, but I think this was a little over the top. I could understand if each look was designed specially for her, but they weren’t, granted she might have loved each and every look – but did anyone else just think that she had been paid to wear Dior for the premieres? Maybe I am being a little cynical, I am just gutted that she didn’t wear other designers, I just wanted so more from her this promo tour.

Which Dior look was your favourite from Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo tour?

BFI London Film Festival: Carey Mulligan In Dior

BFI cary mulligan 1 BFI London Film Festival: Carey Mulligan In Dior %tag

Who: Carey Mulligan

Where: At the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ screening held during the 57th BFI London Film Festival at Odeon Leicester Square

Wearing: A strapless yellow matte silk and wool crepe Christian Dior dress featuring contoured seams to the bodice and falling just below-the-knee, teamed with black mesh Dior heels

Verdict: I do love seeing vibrant colours on the red carpet and I love this Dior cocktail dress – it is simple-yet-elegant and is styled to perfection with no jewellery, a wispy updo and clashing red lippy.

As much as I love the dress, the make-up and her hair, I just wish she would find a way to look less awkward on the red carpet, she is so beautiful but always looks so nervous.

Are you pleased that Carey went for a vibrant hue?
