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!!!
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.

I have many girl crushes, from Diane Kruger, Jennifer Lawrence to Chinese actress Fan Bingbing for their incredible red carpet style, Olivia Palermo because mainly I want everything in her wardrobe, and even fictional character Carrie Bradshaw, the latest addition to the list has to be Kerry Washington.
Over the past year or so, Kerry has really upped her fashion credentials for me, making me take notice when she hits the red carpet, I have loved so many but these Donna Karan, Rodarte, Giambattista Valli and Louis Vuitton looks are some of my favourites.
Her latest editorial shoot for Vanity Fair’s August issue is another highlight, entitled ‘Scandal’s First Lady’, the spread captured by Norman Jean Roy and styled by Jessica Diehl features some amazing looks. From the Lanvin bodysuit on the cover to the peddle-dashed Armani gown that blends in with the stairs, the futuristic Burberry Prorsum dress, and the sexy black Versace and Donna Karan New York looks. It is one hot editorial.
I love this editorial so much I wish that Vanity Fair would have used Kerry for their September issue – as if this was just for August imagine what the biggest issue of the year would have looked like!!!
Have you watched Scandal yet? I stupidly missed the first season when it aired in the UK so I am attempting to find the time to catch-up at the moment, but my friends have raved about it because of how brilliant Kerry is in it.
Are you a fan of Kerry Washington? And will you be buying this month’s Vanity Fair?

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.[Pic: courtesy of Donna Karan]
