If I said to you which fashion houses are the go-to red carpet designers – would Prada be one of them? I can imagine that you are probably listing designers including Elie Saab, Armani, Versace, Givenchy, Dior and Chanel, but not so much Prada. I think a couple of years ago Miuccia Prada didn’t really translate her Prada ready-to-wear onto the red carpet, the designs looked a little rushed, unflattering and not very well put together, but in the last 12-months I’ve noticed I stark change in direction from the Italian fashion house, the designs are more custom to the wearer
I was a little worried that Cannes 2015 had peaked a little early, day one and two were amazing, then Diane Kruger came to town and another high and then I haven’t really seen anything to wow me, lots of beautiful but nothing stunning enough to make the blog, until Emily Blunt who is in the French Riviera promoting her film ‘Sicario’. The actress has donned three looks and each one has been divine, especially her dazzling custom Stella McCartney gown.
So the award season is certainly in full swing, which I am loving, first up was the Golden Globes that was semi-disappointing this year, but thankfully this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards really did make up for some of the boring looks from last Sunday, I am talking about you Emily Blunt!!! I know I normally do individual red carpet posts, but as I am late on this as I was actually travelling when the awards were taking place, I thought I would just share my five favourite looks, and trust me they are all beautiful. First up we have Angelina
Who: Emily Blunt, who lost out to Jennifer Lawrence in the Best Actress in an Action Film category Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California Wearing: A white Miu Miu dress that fell at the ankles featuring a crystal-embellished neckline and cross-back straps, teamed with a gold box clutch and Prada metallic heels Verdict: Known for her simple-yet-stunning looks on the red carpet, do you remember that vibrant Alexander McQueen last year, well this another gorgeous dress that is made into a show-stopping number as soon as you see the back, like with Jessica Chastain’s Prada gown. I love that this
Who: Emily Blunt Where: At the Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel in London Wearing: An orange floor-length Alexander McQueen gown with a bejewelled halter neckline from the Resort 2013 collection, teamed with an Alexander McQueen black knuckle box clutch Verdict: What a vision Emily Blunt is in orange, I love, love love this elegant-yet-simple McQueen gown on her – the streamlined silhouette is just divine. I love that she didn’t over accessorise it, that jewelled neckline is enough sparkle for this look, which kind of reminds me a little of Calvin Klein in its minimalistic approach.
