Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Cate Blanchett In Armani Prive

Oscars armani cate blanchet Oscars 2014: Best Dressed   Cate Blanchett In Armani Prive %tag

Who: Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett

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

Wearing: A nude gold Armani Prive gown with a tulle skirt, and embroidered with dégradé sequins and Swarovski crystals from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Chopard opal and diamond earrings

Verdict: Wow, the Blue Jasmine star looked incredible in this textured beauty of a gown by Armani Prive. The designer wasn’t much of a surprise, but I was surprised by the romantic, floated nature of the gown, I was thinking that she would go for something a little more structured and avant garde. I am definitely not complaining, this Princess dress looked amazing on her, and really photographed all the embroidery really well.

The only thing that made this look not shine as bright as Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace or Lupita Nyong’o in Prada was the nude, champagne hue of the gown, which seemed to be all the stars go-to colour. Stars including Idina Menzel in Reem Acra, her Blue Jasmine co-star Sally Hawkins in Valentino and Portia de Rossi in a Naeem Khan, as well as Jessica Biel in Chanel Couture and Kristin Bell in a Roberto Cavalli all wore the shade. It kind of made Cate’s not as special looking back across all the red carpet images.

Saying that I still love this gown, the mixture of the textures with the romantic floaty silhouette really is gorgeous.

I also love. love, love those statement opal and diamond Chopard earrings – it really made her Hollywood glamour look.

Are you a fan of Cate Blanchett’s Armani Prive gown?

Cannes Film Festival: Nicole Kidman Is Red Carpet Perfection

Nicole kidman armani Cannes Film Festival: Nicole Kidman Is Red Carpet Perfection %tag

Nicole Kidman in Giorgio Armani for the closing ceremony of the 66th Cannes Film Festival

It was always going to be hard for Cannes Film Festival judge Nicole Kidman to top Diane Kruger’s run at last year’s event, but I have to give it to her she really has worked the red carpet to perfection and worn some unexpected looks that I have loved.

We started off with a gorgeous girlie Dior number, then the unexpected blue leaf-printed L’Wren Scott gown, and the Aussie actress completed her red carpet duties with a breathtaking Valentino, an on-trend monochrome Chanel dress, and finishing up her magnificent run with a white custom-made Giorgio Armani gown. Throughout the festival she really has wowed me.

What I have loved from Nicole’s red carpet looks in Cannes has to be her impeccable styling, sometimes I find I love her dress but not her hair, make-up and accessories, but it seems to have totally come together in France. From her side ponytail wore to the opening ceremony to her braided messy up-do teamed with her black and white Chanel resort gown to her elegant up-do worn with her Valentino Oscar worthy gown – I have loved that she thought about her hair.

Deciding on my best Nicole look has been hard, the floral embroidered Dior was cute, I was blown away by her frothy Valentino spring couture gown, and I loved her bright strapless L’Wren Scott dress, but I think she saved the best till last with this custom-made white silk tapered bustier Giorgio Armani gown featuring a  and v-neckline and a gold Swarovski crystal bow. This dress is simply divine.

I am sad to say bye to Cannes for another year – but excited to see who will be the red carpet star of next year’s festival.

Which of Nicole’s Cannes looks is your favourite?

Oscars 2013: Naomi Watts In Giorgio Armani

Oscars naomi watts armani Oscars 2013: Naomi Watts In Giorgio Armani %tagWho: Nominated actress Naomi Watts

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A custom Giorgio Armani gown fully enveloped in layered gunmetal grey sequins, teamed with Jimmy Choo heels and diamond jewellery

Verdict: It’s the gowns with something a little different that caught my eye on a mainly safe red carpet at last night’s Oscars, and this Giorgio Armani was a stand-out piece. Naomi Watts always has an elegance about her, she can pull off literally any look and this slinky gown looked incredible on her.

What I love, other than the gunmetal colour, which literally shimmered on camera, was the one-shoulder, off-center cut-out design along the bust-line. When she first stepped out on the red carpet I literally held my breathe as this gown took a risk that paid off and I loved it.

Finishing off her sequinned look was minimal styling, which seemed to be a big theme of the night, she just added diamond drop earrings, a diamond bracelet and a cocktail ring, and one of the best hairstyles of the night, a messy up-do. For me this is not only one of the best looks of the night but one of Naomi’s best ever looks!!!

Oscars 2013: Jessica Chastain In Giorgio Armani

Oscars jessica chastain  Oscars 2013: Jessica Chastain In Giorgio Armani  %tagWho: Jessica Chastain

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless copper-tone custom Giorgio Armani silk satin gown covered in sequins, teamed with vintage Harry Winston diamond earrings and gold bracelet from the 1960s

Verdict: This is Old Hollywood movie star wow that the Oscars is all about. I love everything from the sweetheart neckline to the colour, which shouldn’t but does work against her red locks and pale skin, to the incredible exquisite sequin detailing and the gorgeous silhouette.

One of the first to hit the red carpet, Jessica really did make an impression with this gown that made everyone up their game!!!

As well as loving her gown, her jewellery was also perfection, in her interview on the red carpet she said that the bracelet was from the 1960s and it really did accessory the gown well. I also thought her side swept curls and her bold lippy just oozed glamour – great job Jessica!!!

The Perk Of Being A Wallflower: Emma Watson Shimmers In Giorgio Armani

EmmaWatsonArmani The Perk Of Being A Wallflower: Emma Watson Shimmers In Giorgio Armani %tagWho: Emma Watson

Where: At the LA premiere of her latest movie ‘The Perk Of Being A Wallflower’

Wearing: A pale yellow lace Giorgio Armani gown, featuring long layers and scattered beading, accessorised with gold sandals

Verdict: This look from Emma Watson really made me think today, I have been pondering all afternoon whether I liked this look or not, and I think I am swaying to liking it. At first I was a little unsure because it didn’t wow me, it is very understated, but then I looked a little closer and the tiered sheer layers scattered with beads really is divine.

Emma is very petite and I think the floaty frock wears her rather than the other way round, but the look really is helped by the gorgeous shape showing off her neckline, the open back that adds a touch of glamour, and most of all the statement lippy and slicked back hair – the edgy styling really works with this gown for me.

I think this dress will have some people sold instantly, others it will be a grower and some will just dislike, which fence are you on?

Channing was joined by his co-star Matthew McConaughey who was looking just as dapper in a Dolce & Gabbana checkered grey suit, styled with a very smart light-blue shirt and a maroon tie. HOT!!!

I am not sure who looks more dashing – but I am loving their coordination.

So will you be heading out this weekend to see Magic Mike? I can tell you I will be at a showing tomorrow and I seriously can’t wait.

Cover Loving: Kristen Stewart For Vanity Fair

VanityFairJuly2012 Cover Loving: Kristen Stewart For Vanity Fair %tag

Finally a Kristen Stewart cover that I can love. This is her first solo cover for Vanity Fair and it is a blinder, I am loving the uber-glam Kristen in that gorgeous Giorgio Armani Privé gown, she looks incredible and for the first time she actually looks relaxed. I have to ask was the Pomeranian dog really needed?

Shot by Mario Testino in Paris there is a gorgeous high fashion editorial accompanying this stunning cover, from Kristen wearing haute couture to the ballet, posing with the striking dancer Jérémie Bélingard **check out his incredible eyes, dreamy** in a Jean Gaultier corset, and of course the jewellery is well represented with gorgeous Fabergé diamonds and emeralds.

Maybe it is the Paris backdrop, of the incredible couture designs, but come on have you ever seen Kristen look so good in a magazine before?
