Golden Globes 2013: Nicole Kidman In Alexander McQueen

Nicole Kidman, Alexander McQueen, McQueen, Golden Globes

Who: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A black crepe Alexander McQueen gown with gold bee embroidery to the neckline and lace panels to the waist from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with Fred Leighton jewellery, and Manolo Blahnik heels

Verdict: This is a gorgeous gown, which at first I thought was a little to edgy for Nicole Kidman, and then I remembered how incredible she used to be on the red carpet and I was excited to see her working her amazing figure.

The mesh panel to the middle of the dress makes Nicole taller and slimmer, as if she needed any help, and teamed with the metal embellishments it has a regal vibe to it that actually suits her.

What do you think – is the McQueen gown to edgy for her?

Primetime Emmy Awards: Julianna Margulies in Giambattista Valli Couture

Who: Julianna Margulies

Where: At the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless floral printed Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with Brian Atwood heels and Fred Leighton jewellery

Verdict: I promise I am not going to do a separate post for each and every look off the Emmy Awards red carpet but I have picked out a number of looks that I adored, or surprised me, and this look from Julianna Margulies ticks both columns.

Normally, Julianna goes for Armani or Calvin Klein she likes the minimalist structured gowns, and I have to be honest I thought it would have been another Armani look, but this divine couture gown from Giambattista Valli is stunning on her. I love the floral pattern, the hidden pockets, and her bling Fred Leighton earrings finishes off her look perfectly.

This is a hot look and I am glad that she stepped out of her comfort zone as she looks beautiful and she is definitely one of my best dressed of the night.

Do you rate Julianna in this haute couture Giambattista Valli?

Primetime Emmy Awards: Nicole Kidman In Antonio Berardi

Who: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A white column Antonio Berardi gown featuring blue embellished detailing to the bodice and front from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with Christian Louboutin heels and Fred Leighton jewellery

Verdict: I do love seeing London Fashion Week designers on the red carpet, what makes Nicole Kidman’s dress choice even more amazing is that this Antonio Berardi gown only just hit the catwalk last week, that is fast turnaround – I haven’t even blogged about the show yet.

There is always an elegance about Nicole and this gown is perfection for her, I love the column silhouette, but this dress for me is all about the incredible striking blue embellishments – simply breathtaking.

84th Oscars: Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton

Who: Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A red/coral/burnt orange *delete as appropriate* bustier Louis Vuitton couture gown with on-trend peplum detailing in burnt silk mousseline and organza ribbons done in layers to create a 3D effect, which took more than 300 hours to create; this was finished with Fred Leighton jewels, Bottega Veneta pink clutch and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: Louis Vuitton is calling this burnt orange, Michelle called it coral, and I have to admit on screen and in pictures it looks red, whatever the shade this is a knock-out dress. I love that Michelle took a risk with this quirky gown with the colour, the peplum and bow detailing to the waist – it all makes this couture gown standout on the red carpet. It also works amazingly with her blonde pixie cut and her red lippy.

It is just a shame that she didn’t win the Best Actress gong as this dress deserved the attention of an Oscar-winner. But I am sure that this dress will hit the best dressed lists – for me I think it just comes in second behind Gwyneth Paltrow.

SAG Awards: Michelle Williams In Valentino

Who: Actress Michelle Williams

Where: At the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A red silk Valentino dress from the pre-fall 2012 collection with lace detailing and a curved shaped hemline, teamed with a gold Lanvin box clutch, Fred Leighton jewels and matching red satin Roger Vivier heels

Verdict: At the Golden Globes I loved her velvet Jason Wu because it was a little different, and even though red is Valentino’s signature style, this dress had a different edge to it with the lace detailing, the curved hem and the gathering to the side. It looks amazing on her and I am so glad that she paired the dress with matching coloured heels as the combination together looks stunning.

Golden Globes: Evan Rachel Wood In Gucci Premiere

Who: Evan Rachel Wood

Where: At the 69th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A dark green sequinned and feather-embellished halterneck Gucci Premiere gown with a plunging neckline and open back, teamed with a gold bangle, diamond stud earrings and a snake ring, all by Fred Leighton

Verdict: Evan was one of the stars that I was most excited to see walk the red carpet and she certainly didn’t disappoint me – this is one show-stopping number, that kind of reminded me of a mermaid, and I love it!!!!

I kind of want to know how long it took to make this exquisitely crafted dress – as I am sure that all the sequins, paillettes and feathers were sewn on by hand – just extraordinary and flawless. A complete vision from the sheer deep V neckline with sequin overlay to the gorgeous feathers that completed her skirt and train – I just adore everything about it.

I don’t think anyone else could have pulled off this look better – she just looks incredible – just enough attitude to really work it. This is without a doubt one of my best dressed of the night.

Golden Globes: Dianna Agron A Swan Song In Giles

Who: Glee star Dianna Agron

Where: At the 69th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A red Giles Deacon gown with laser-cut swans on the bodice and tiered skirt from the spring/summer 2012 collection, paired with Fred Leighton earrings, bracelets and a ring

Verdict: Dianna described the swans as “incredible details” and I quite agree. I know that for some critics this dress has too much going on but that’s why I like it, Giles is all about the exquisite detailing and this is one beautiful gown. I also like that she went for someone that isn’t an obvious red carpet choice – she certainly stands out and I hope more starlets follow suit and work different designers at events like this.

What do you think of this Giles dress?
