Cover Loving: Leighton Meester’s Raunchy Editorial For Flaunt Magazine

Flaunt leighton  Cover Loving: Leighton Meesters Raunchy Editorial For Flaunt Magazine  %tag

Gossip Girls is finally over and Leighton Meester is getting rid of her Blair Waldorf image with a very provocative editorial for Flaunt Magazine as the cover star for its The Mother Issue: Blow Your Load.

Shot by Yu Tsai, this photoshoot reminds me of something Helmut Newton would do, and I absolutely love Leighton looking like a high-end model with her jet black bob, it is like she went under a Tara makeover *sorry I am obsessed with America’s Next Top Model*.

I like the sexy styling, Robert Behar has done an amazing job, I completely adore the one-sleeved asymmetrical bustier Anthony Vaccarello gown on the cover, it works perfectly sandwiched between two naked models wearing Christian Louboutin brogues.

The rest of the editorial is just as strong with Leighton working a shaggy Mulberry coat, a striking yellow Versace dress, a gorgeous Pucci gown, and uber-sexy heels by Christian Louboutin and Brian Atwood – this is one steamy editorial.

So what do you think of Queen B’s raunchy editorial and do you like her Rose Byrne-inspired bob? Plus anyone else a little distracted by the very naked arse on the cover?

Cannes 2012: Kylie Minogue Dazzles Promoting Holy Motors

KylieCannes Cannes 2012: Kylie Minogue Dazzles Promoting Holy Motors %tag

There is something quite endearing about pop princess Kylie, I like that she always makes an effort when it comes to red carpet appearances, and I love that she really does sexy in such an elegant way, which is hard to do. Kylie has been spotted in Cannes this past week promoting her new movie, Holy Motors, yes Kylie is giving acting another go after that awful Street Fighters movie she did year’s ago, and has been working her fashion connections.

Kylie’s first outing was for the ‘Killing Them Softly’ afterparty and she wore a stunning black sequinned Roberto Cavalli gown. Such a gorgeous silhouette and I absolutely love the shimmer of the large sequins, and the chiffon train is the perfect finish.

Then for the premire of her new movie Holy Motors, Kylie turned to her good pals Dolce & Gabbana and literally dazzled in this long-sleeved gold beauty.This is her best hair of the three looks as well for me, I love her wavy locks and her make-up is flawless, considering she is 43 – she really does look amazing.

My favourite of her three looks has to be the vibrant red organza Emilio Pucci gown that she wore to the 19th annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala. This gown from the autumn/winter 2012 collection looks like it was made specially for her, there is an elegance about the silhouette with its cleverly positioned sheer panels, but the sexy factor is there in the colour and the plunging neckline. But what makes this look my favourite is that gorgeous triple-layered diamond necklace – now that is statement jewellery!!!

Which of Kylie’s three looks gets your vote?

Cannes 2012: Jada Pinkett Smith In Emilio Pucci

JadaHaiti Cannes 2012: Jada Pinkett Smith In Emilio Pucci %tag
Who: Actress Jada Pinkett Smith

Where: At Sean Penn’s Haiti Benefit Gala Dinner at the Electrolux Agora Pavilion during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A custom-made gold strapless Emilio Pucci gown with beaded embellishments and lace inserts

Verdict: Jada really has had a busy Cannes and once again this is another stunning gown. There is something special about this metallic patchwork gown that I really like, I’m not sure it beats her orange Atelier Versace gown but comes pretty close.

I don’t know why but Jada hasn’t really been on my radar before Cannes and I’m thinking that she must have a new stylist as she has been on fire. I wonder if this is her done for this year’s event or if she has another gorgeous gown in her suitcase?

Venice Film Festival: Bar Refael In Emilio Pucci

barpuccivenice Venice Film Festival: Bar Refael In Emilio Pucci %tag

Who: Bar Refaeli

Where: At the Carnage”premiere during the 68th Venice International Film Festival at Palazzo del Cinema

Wearing: A black Emilio Pucci jumpsuit with lace panel detailing from the Resort 2012 collection, teamed with a black box clutch

Verdict: If it wasn’t for the lace panel detailing this look wouldn’t have wowed me as much as it has. Of course her model proportions look amazing in this jumpsuit, and the touch of lace adds a sexy touch that she is working perfectly. I also love the Victorian-style buttons as well.

But what is it with the un-styled hair, I said it yesterday that Abbie Cornish didn’t pull it off like Diane Kruger, and I think Bar needed to take a little bit more time as well.

Music Video Loving: Beyonce – Run The World (Girls)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBmMU_iwe6U&feature=player_embedded

Beyonce premiered her new song last week, Run The World (Girls), and as you would expect it is filled with fierce poses, dancing and an amazing selection of designer clobber. I counted eight looks, admittedly I may have missed a few as it does flash from one scene to the next quite quickly, but I spotted pieces from Lee McQueen’s last collection, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Emilio Pucci, Brian Lichtenberg and Gareth Pugh.

One of the first looks (above) is a gorgeous Alexander McQueen red silk satin dress adorned with gold embroidery from the autumn/winter 2010 collection, teamed with McQueen thigh-high boots. Oh, and for added drama, Beyonce is standing tall next to a gorgeous lion.

Surrounded by her army Beyonce shows off her fab figure and incredible dance skills in these Norma Kamali fringe shorts with a black bustier, a Brian Lichtenberg patchwork fur vest from the autumn/winter 2011 collection and fringed Alexander Wang heels. This is a hot look!!

Amongst all the post-apocalyptic drama comes this gorgeous Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress from the spring/summer 2011 collection. The detailing in this dress looks stunning against the derilick scene.

But my favourite look has to be this stunning black Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown from the spring 2011 collection, its fabulous bold feathered shoulders and cut-out detailing to the bodice.

One of the most striking costume changes has to be this gold scale Gareth Pugh dress and heels. This is a very futuristic look and I love the dramatic shoulder and the flicky skirt, and how tiny is her waist!!

shot7 500x211 Music Video Loving: Beyonce   Run The World (Girls) %tag

My least favourite look has to be this vibrant yellow Emilio Pucci gown with thigh-high splits on both sides and a plunging neckline. Makes perfect sense for her dance moves, but against all the other stunning pieces this one didn’t work as well for me. Out of the two Pucci dresses I prefer the racing green sequinned number below, with its cross-body slash.

For Beyonce’s second wear from Norma Kamali she looks amazing in her Aztec cut-out jumpsuit, which you can buy here for $575.

I am so glad that artists like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna still make large production music videos. This video shot by Francis Lawrence really is spectacular, from the concept of Beyonce being a warrior chief and having her own army to the crazy dance scenes, this is a great video.

Pirates: Penelope Cruz in Marchesa, Emilio Pucci, Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Armani

PenelopeMarcPC4 Pirates: Penelope Cruz in Marchesa, Emilio Pucci, Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Armani %tag

Who: Actress Penelope Cruz

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean Premiere in Cannes, France

Wearing: A lavender coloured jewel encrusted illusion Marchesa gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with flared silk tulle skirt and shoulder detailing; paired with a Swarovski clutch and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: Other than the Disney Premiere when Penelope wore that gorgeous black Marchesa, this is my favourite look from her European promo tour so far. I always feel that Marchesa add something extra to their red carpet looks but this is a divine dress that looks like it was designed especially for Penelope. It is hugging her in all the right places, and the colour is just perfection against her skin tone. She really is beautiful.

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides photocall at the Palais des Festivals during the 64th Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A navy form-fitted Stella McCartney dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with a velvet skirt and teamed with navy heels

Verdict: I always love dresses that fall just below-the-knee, and navy blue makes it perfection for me. This is a perfect look for a photocall, and Stella McCartney is one of the best choices to go for, it really does show how amazing Penelope’s body is. Great look and I am so glad that she kept her hair down.

Where: At the première of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in Moscow

Wearing: A knee-length black velvet embroidered Emilio Pucci dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with long sleeves and bow detailing

Verdict: This is one statement dress, normally I wouldn’t like this but Penelope oozes just enough attitude for this dress to shine. I know some will say that this is a boring look for a premiere, but I love the drama of the high neck, large bow and velvet. I like it.

Wearing: A white embroidered Givenchy Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with exposed zip detailing to the front

Verdict: At first glance I wasn’t sure about this look. There is no question that she is looking fabulous post-baby, but I just wasn’t sure if

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Premiere in Munich, Germany

Wearing: A custom fitted red organza Giorgio Armani Privé gown with long-sleeves

Verdict: What a beauty!! I loved Anne Hathaway when she wore a similar Armani gown in sapphire satin, but this red is just perfection and looks amazing on Penelope. Simply gorgeous.

janefondapucci 500x836 Cannes 2011: Jane Fonda Stunning In Pucci %tag

Who: Jane Fonda

Where: At the première of Sleeping Beauty at the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A white custom Emilio Pucci gown with long sleeves and embellished panels, teamed with a gold clutch

Verdict: First up I can’t believe how stunning Jane Fonda looks, please can I look this good when I am in my Seventies, I think I am going to be getting out her old workout videos out!!!

Secondly, I love how Pucci creates such simple gowns and makes them elegant and the wearer absolutely gorgeous. I love that this gown has long sleeves and a high neck as it really works, Jane also looks really fresh in white. Love this look from head-to-toe.
