Red Carpet Crush: Transformers: Age of Extinction Star Nicola Peltz

Transformers HK Nicola peltz prem Red Carpet Crush: Transformers: Age of Extinction Star Nicola Peltz %tag

I have many red carpet crushes – there is Diane Kruger, Kate Hudson, and Blake Lively to name a few, and the new Transformers’ star Nicola Peltz, who you may recognise from the TV Bates Motel, is the latest addition to my style crush list after seeing her first few outings promoting Transformers: Age of Extinction.

It must be hard following in the footsteps of bombshell Megan Fox and leggy model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as a Transformers’ babe but Nicola Peltz seems to be taking it in her stride with one flawless look after the other thanks to her amazing stylist Leslie Fremar, who also styles the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Connelly.

Peltz has so far hit the red carpet in big names like Prada, Giambattista Valli, and Stella McCartney, not normally the pull of an up-and-coming star but the designer fashion houses must be pleased as she really has been proving that she is every bit the glamorous movie star. As well as being impressed with the range of designers she has been sporting, I have loved the variety in choices, you really can’t guess what this blonde bombshell will wear next.

First up for the Hong Kong premiere was the gorgeous icy blue organza Prada column gown, I adore the jewel-encrusted neckline and waist as well as the sexy cut-out detailing to the bodice. On some actresses this could have looked a little too provocative but on her it was just perfection and glamorous.

For the after party the actress did turn up the sex appeal wearing a super sexy lace-overlay Dolce & Gabbana skirt with a leather Alexander Wang crop top, the perfect after party look that was made even hottier by her flawless barely-there make-up. I think the only thing I would have change were the heels and gone for something strappy.

For the Hong Kong photocall, Peltz went for this slinky white Stella McCartney gown with wave detailing and a sheer hem from the pre-autumn/winter 2014 collection. I am not normally a fan of white heels but I like this white-on-white look.

My favourite red carpet look so far has to be this heavenly, ethereal Giambattista Valli couture gown that she wore to the Shanghai premiere. You can always count on Giambattista Valli for a show-stopping look and this gown is truly divine with its embroidered detailing, peplum and lace skirt. My only criticism is that this dreamy gown needed a bigger stage, like Cannes or an award ceremony or even a world premiere. But seriously that is me being picky as this is one gorgeous gown the silhouette is just striking.

It is hard to follow the Giambattista Valli but I think she could have done a lot better than this Saint Laurent black blazer and leather short combination that she wore to the Beijing premiere. Granted it does look good on her and I do love the red lippy I just wanted more. But saying that she made up for my disappointment at the New York premiere in this strapless shimmering blue Balenciaga gown. The column gown really goes look amazing on her, as does this vibrant hue against her blonde locks, I just wish I had a clearer picture of the back to show you as it really had gorgeous draped detailing.

It is so hard for up-and-coming actress to wow on the red carpet, it helps when you have a blockbuster like Transformers’ to pull in the big designer names, but I definitely think that Nicola Peltz is a star to keep an eye on and I can’t wait to see more amazing red carpet looks from her.

Are you impressed with how confident Nicola Peltz is on the red carpet?

Peabody Awards: Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli Couture

Diane kruger giambattista valli Peabody Awards: Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli Couture %tag

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At the Peabody Awards, held at The Waldorf-Astoria in New York City

Wearing: A pink floral structured Giambattista Valli Couture dress, featuring a longer ruffle skirt to the back from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with mint-coloured heels and a gold bracelet

Verdict: Check out those legs, Diane Kruger isn’t shy about rocking a shorter hemline but she doesn’t do it that often, and this is one gorgeous and fashion-forward take on the high-low silhouette with that ruffle skirt on the back of the dress.

What I love about this Giambattista Valli Couture dress, other than the fab pink floral print and ruffle train, which is kind of perfect for a spring event, has to be the structured detailing to the front as it adds something a little different to this mini dress.

As always Diane finishes her look with the perfect choice of accessories, keeping the jewellery to a minimum and going for a gorgeous pair of mint-coloured heels, and then adding a nice fuchsia hue to her lips.

Thoughts on Diane’s latest red carpet look?

Noah: Jennifer Connelly’s Gorgeous Promo Tour

Noah London Jennifer Connelly Noah: Jennifer Connellys Gorgeous Promo Tour %tag

I love a big film release, not only is it fun to see a blockbuster at the cinema, it also brings out the best red carpet fashion outside of award season and Cannes. For Noah, the epic biblical-inspired movie, I thought I would be gushing about Emma Watson, granted I have already and she has looked gorgeous, but for me this promo tour has all been about Jennifer Connelly, who plays Noah’s wife in the film, as she has looked sensational.

I have loved every look she has worn, from the exquisite floral embellished Alexander McQueen gown from the autumn/winter 2014 collection that she wore to the London premiere to the blush pink Givenchy Couture gown that she wore in Mexico, this gown was Oscar worthy and it was lovely to see her in it – the fuchsia jewels were incredible and it fitted her perfectly.

Jennifer has also added a touch of sex appeal to her red carpet looks as well as statement floor length gowns, I really loved her in this gorgeous mint leaf-embroidered Giambattista Valli Couture mini – that ruby-embellished neckline totally makes this one knockout look. This Madrid look was also one of my favourite make-up looks from Jennifer as well – the fuchsia lip teamed with a slick bun really makes this one amazing look – both elegant and sexy.

Actually ever detail about her Noah promo tour has been spot on – from the mix up of designers, which is nice to see, to the various hair and make-up styles that she has gone for, as well as her love of embellished and classic pieces – her stylist Leslie Fremar and glam squad really have done a great job.

It is hard to choose a favourite look, I love her classic custom Lanvin black velvet column gown that she wore in Berlin, because the thigh-high slit was classy and went perfectly with those Christian Louboutin heels and her hair styled in a tucked-under ’do is divine, but I think the pink embellished Givenchy Couture just wins out for me as this gown deserved a red carpet appearance.

Which of Jennifer Connelly’s styles gets your vote?

Oscars chopard penelope cru Oscars 2014: Penelope Cruz In Giambattista Valli & Chopard %tagWho: Penelope Cruz

Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A soft pink chiffon Giambattista Valli Couture one-shoulder gown with a black bow waistband, teamed with Chopard diamond chandelier earrings and bracelet

Verdict: There is something about Penelope Cruz that she was one of the stars I was excited to see tonight, and she really didn’t disappoint in this romantic cape-like custom Giambattista Valli Couture gown.

In past years we have seen Penelope work sexy and dramatic looks and it was nice to see her work an elegant, romantic look in this Grecian-esq draped gown. I loved everything from the colour to the one-shoulder to the black bow accent nipping in her waist.

Adding to her look was her stunning Chopard jewels, everyone is seems went for statement earrings tonight and these chandelier beauties were divine.

Finishing off her stunning look was flawless make-up and a topknot. Penelope Cruz just knows how to work an Oscars red carpet.

ELLE Style Awards: Emma Watson In Giambattista Valli

Who: actress Emma Watson 

Where: At the ELLE Style Awards 2014 held at One Embankment in London

Wearing: A monochrome Giambattista Valli couture mini dress from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with black pointy Christian Louboutin heels and red lippy

Verdict: I love Emma’s fresh take on red carpet fashion, you can never really predict what she will wear, and I always seem to love her fashion-forward choices. This mini Giambattista Valli is daring, stunning and has a modern glamour about it – I love the contrasting texture of the sequinned bodice with the waist band and the architectural bow skirt.

It is cute, fun and perfect for a young actress like herself and I am so pleased she didn’t over style the look – that skirt doesn’t need anything else to make this outfit shine.

Emma was most certainly my best dressed at this year’s ELLE Style Awards – I love everything about this look.

Are you a fan of Emma’s red carpet style?

Editorial Loving: Miley Cryus In Couture For Harper’s Bazaar

Harpers bazaar sept miley 1 Editorial Loving: Miley Cryus In Couture For Harpers Bazaar %tag

Singer Miley Cyrus has taken out her grill and put her twerking on hold to look all glamorous in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar US wearing the most gorgeous haute couture looks from the autumn/winter collections.

Styled by Lessie Lessin and shot by Terry Richardson, the Can't Stop singer looks elegant wearing looks by Armani Prive, Chanel, Dior, Valentino, Giambattista Valli, and Atelier Versace.

I love all the pieces, the styling is amazing, but my favourites has to be that exquisite ruffled Armani Prive gown draped out in front of the car, it is a gown waiting for a glitzy award show red carpet, and the gorgeous red Giambattista Valli gown captured in front of the sunset.

Every since she cut her hair she has been on a fashion transformation and this editorial shows that she is all grown up and it suits her. It is a shame really that they didn't give her the cover.

Do you like Miley's couture editorial in Harper's Bazaar?

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli

diane kruger VF2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli  %tagWho: Diane Kruger

Where: At the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party, held at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood

Wearing: A black and white embroidered Giambattista Valli cape dress from the spring/summer 2013 haute couture collection, teamed with Christian Louboutin heels, a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit gold and black metal clutch, and Fabergé jewellery

Verdict: I have missed Diane Kruger this award season as she always brings something new and different to the red carpet, and this is another incredible fashion-forward choice from one of her favourite couture designers, Giambattista Valli.

I don’t think many people could pull off this long-sleeved caped design but Diane seems to do it with ease, which is probably why I love it so much.

As well as loving the print, bold like Nina Dobrev’s, I love that it isn’t floor length like nearly everyone else, it makes her and this couture design stand out.

I think this another great look from Diane – do you agree?
