Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Donna Karan Atelier

Diane-kruger-donna-karan

I wasn’t going to bother doing a play-by-play look at the Vanity Fair red carpet, **the Oscars red carpet was a little disappointing this year**well that was until I heard that Diane Kruger was to wear custom Donna Karan Atelier, and as soon as I saw the hybrid dress-come-jumpsuit creation I knew that I couldn’t not share it – just look how amazing it is!!!

I had been looking forward to a gorgeous Donna Karan Atelier gown on the Oscars red carpet, especially after seeing what the designer created for Emmy Rossum at the Costume Designers Guild Awards but sadly it wasn’t meant to be, but now I know it is because the designer was busy working on this beauty for Diane Kruger.

OK, so this hybrid look, of a dress, cape and jumpsuit is nothing new, we’ve all seen Emma Watson and Emma Stone pull off great choices, but just look at the incredible construction of this jumpsuit with its asymmetrical neckline with the cape flowing beautifully over the one-shoulder. The draping to the front is perfectly placed, it is tailored to perfection, and I love, love, love the vibrant colour on her. 

As well as the outfit I basically loved everything else about this look from the uber-cool Anya Hindmarch ‘Pencil Case’ clutch, going to put it out there I want something graffiti with Anya stickers, to her chic Jimmy Choo ‘Minnie’ sandals, and as always her hair and make-up was also flawless – love the ponytail and the matte red lips.

Diane Kruger for me is always simply, gorgeous!!!

Costume Designers Guild Awards: Emmy Rossum In Donna Karan Atelier

Donna-karen-Emmy-Rossum-front

Who: Emmy Rossum

Where: At the 17th Costume Designers Guild Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A pale pink silk crepe Donna Karan Atelier gown with criss-cross strap detailing, plunging neckline and a slight V open-back, teamed with a beaded clutch and drop earrings

Verdict: This is perfection. I adore everything from the colour, to the over-the-top glamorous train, to the sexy plunging neckline and open back. This is just a wow moment, so elegant, so modern, so beautiful. 

There is always something so elegant about Emmy, she has a grace about her on the red carpet that is just so amazing to see. I think most stars would have been a little scared of how much dress there is, there is a lot of drape in that train, but she looks so confident and that adds to the beauty of the look. 

As well as loving the gown, I also think her hair and make-up was so divine, I do love a smoky brown eye and her lippie is just the right hue of pink to complement her dress, and I’m so pleased she went for a simple up-do, as this gown does all the talking.

If this is what Donna Karan creates for the Costume Designers Guild Awards imagine what we are going to get at the Oscars.

SAG Awards: Naya Rivera In Donna Karan Atelier

Naya-Rivera-donna-karanWho: Glee star Naya Rivera

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless black duchess satin Donna Karan Atelier gown with an peek-a-boo sheer panel, and accordion pleated that fanned around the exposed corset, teamed with drop earrings, bracelet and a matching cocktail ring

Verdict: There were a lot of young starlets who shined at last night’s SAG Awards and Glee actress Naya Rivera perfected glamorous and sexy in this exquisite Donna Karan Atelier gown.

I love the contrast of the sexy mermaid silhouette, which really shows off her incredible figure, and the sheer panel on the corset, against the delicate accordion pleats on the bodice and the softness of her wavy hair-do.

Once again Donna Karan propels another young starlet on the red carpet – we’ve seen Nina Dobrev, Ashley Greene and even Taylor Swift hit the top of the best dressed list thanks to Donna Karan and I think Naya will do just the same.Naya-Rivera-sag-awards[Pic: courtesy of Donna Karan]

SAG Awards: Sofia Vergara In Donna Karan Atelier

Sofia-Vergara-donna-karan

Who: Sofia Vergara

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Wearing: A white gold liquid lame Donna Karan Atelier gown featuring one-shoulder detailing and a loosely draped skirt with slit, teamed with white Charlotte Olympia heels and Neil Lane jewels

Verdict: Combine Sofia’s va-va-voom with the incredible craftsmanship of Donna Karan and you get a subtle-yet-sexy gown that still shows off the Modern Family’s star’s curves and sex appeal, while being glamorous.

I love the bodice to this dress with the asymmetrical one-shoulder as well as the draping around the bust – it just has a modern feel to it with the shimmery fabric.

What do you think of Sofia’s gown? Are you pleased she stepped away from the mermaid silhouette?

Golden Globes 2013: Debra Messing In Donna Karan

debra-messing-donna-karanWho: Smash actress Debra Messing

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A strapless black silk organza hand-ruched Donna Karan gown from the resort 2013 collection, teamed with statement drop earrings and a stack of bangles on each arm

Verdict: There were a number of black dresses on the Golden Globes red carpet and this was one of the most simple-but-dramatic gowns. This look might not wow everyone but for me I loved the heavy ruched detailing to the voluminous skirt and train, there was a drama about this gown that worked on TV and under the flashbulbs.

As well as being a stunning gown, Debra also styled it perfectly with a sleek ponytail, striking eye make-up, and the most gorgeous jewellery. Statement earrings were everywhere but Debra’s quartz and diamond drop earrings really stood out, and worked perfectly with her arm candy, which contained $200,000 worth of diamond encrusted bangles by Amrapali.

I do love great accessories and Debra had some of the best. Do you like her bangles stacked on each arm?

Golden Globes 2013: Taylor Swift Wows In Donna Karan Atelier

Taylor swift, donna karan, golden globes

Who: Taylor Swift

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A dark plum taffeta Donna Karan Atelier gown that features a low back, dramatic train, and panels in mesh ombre from nude to dark plum which contour the body, teamed with statement Lorraine Schwartz blackened platinum, diamond and ruby earrings

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – seriously this girl needs to get dumped more often as being newly single has really made her red carpet looks better.

Donna Karan knows how to make gorgeous gowns but she also understands young starlets and this is modern, fresh and sexy and is easily Taylor’s best ever look. Everything from the colour to the sexy low back and the mesh panel down the side – I am so pleased that this dress made it onto the red carpet as it is truly stunning.

I also have to point out her statement earrings, which was another trend from this year’s Golden Globes red carpet, they perfectly match the dress and occassion.

But what makes this look gorgeous is her attitude she really worked it on the red carpet if she hadn’t this dress wouldn’t have worked.

Great job Donna Karan you’ve made me a fan of Taylor Swift!!!

People’s Choice Awards: Morena Baccarin In Donna Karan Atelier

Morena Baccarin, People's Choice Awards 2013, Donna Karan AtelierWho: Homeland’s Morena Baccarin

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

Wearing: A smokey white strapless Donna Karan Atelier jumpsuit, featuring a stone encrusted corset, draped waisted and and silk crepe pants, teamed with a Swarovski clutch

Verdict: I do love seeing jumpsuits on the red carpet especially during award season, do you remember Rose Bryne at the SAG Awards last year, well I think this Donna Karan Atelier beauty on Morena Baccarin is just as stunning and daring.

For me this look is all about that corset, the stone embellishments really do stand out, and really gives this jumpsuit a red carpet feel. I am also pleased that it was in white, as it could have so easily been done in black, which I just think would have been a little too safe.

The only thing that could have made this my best dressed look over Taylor Swift would have been if the trouser length had been a little shorter, it just makes me think she changed her heels at the last minute to ones that weren’t as high.

But trust me that is just me being extra picky as I am always pleased to see Donna Karan Atelier on the red carpet – I can’t wait to see what the Golden Globes brings!!!
