Ever wondered what a Riccardo Tisci private party would looked liked? Well according to Givenchy’s autumn/winter 2014 ad campaign it includes a select guest list, gorgeous models, lots of dancing, half-naked men, music from the Martinez Brothers and most importantly a strict Givenchy AW14 dress code. It really does sounds like my sort of rave.
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?

Who: Diane Kruger aka my number one girl crush
Where: At the premiere of her new TV show The Bridge on FX in Los Angeles
Wearing: A green, white and black sleeveless chiffon Jonathan Saunders dress from the Resort 2014 collection, teamed with white Givenchy heels and a nude Charlotte Olympia ‘Cancer Pandora’ perspex clutch
Verdict: I do love seeing Diane Kruger on the red carpet as you never quite know what to expect, and I certainly couldn’t have predicted that she would wear this amazing Jonathan Saunders dress. I love the summery floaty vibe of the dress, with the sheer and ombre colouring of the green, black and white, which looks uber glamorous and fresh with the geometric print.
Even though I love the dress as it is with the black mini skirt underneath, I do wish is was more green and white and less black, her colouring and blonde hair just works against that jade green perfectly.
As always Diane completes her look with glamorous touches including stunning strappy Givenchy sandals that matches her chic white mani, and the most amazing clutch from Charlotte Olympia’s Zodiac collection that I have been coveting since I saw it April **I really want the Gemini one**.
Finishing off her look with flawless make-up, striking eyes and side swept waves by Giannandrea, who seems to be the go-to hairdresser for the red carpet, he has made Naomi Watts, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose Byrne and Isla Fisher look fabulous recently.
Simply – gorgeous as always!!!
Are you a fan of Diane Kruger’s latest red carpet look?

Each year after the Oscars and the award season has finished I have to admit I go through a little lull when it comes to red carpet appearances, premieres are fine but they just don’t have the glamour of a big award show, which is why I am always pleased when May comes around as it has two big fashion events – the Cannes Film Festival and the Met Gala.
This coming Monday, May 6, the very best in fashion will be strutting their stuff in celebration of Met’s Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition, and I love that the red carpet event is kind of a mash-up of the Oscars and fashion week, where designers showcase their very best gowns with most specially created for the event, on some of the biggest stars. It always seems to bring glamour and drama and some of the best looks of the year.
Last year was a Prada affair thanks to Miuccia Prada being co-chair, Diane Kruger in that gorgeous purple gown is still one of my favourite Met Gala looks, well this year is bound to be all about Givenchy as Riccardo Tisci is on the panel and his co-chair is Rooney Mara.
As well as enjoying the red carpet, I love the anticipation and lead-up to the event, guessing what people will wear, and who’s dressing who, which means for the week before I am addicted to WWD, the NY Post and the New York Times – they always have the best scoops.
So want to know the latest rumours? Well I have put down some of my favs below:
- Tommy Hilfiger has announced that his table will be filled with a rather odd mix including Zooey Deschanel, Nicki Minaj, Lily Aldridge, Thalia Mottola, Debbie Harry and Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill – I can’t imagine Nicki Minaj in TH!
- Jennifer Lopez will be a Michael Kors girl for the night – I can’t wait to see this
- Iron Man’s Gwyneth Paltrow is going with Valentino – I wonder if her look will top her sexy Prada mini from last year?
- There are no surprises regarding who Dior is taking – Oscar winning-actress Jennifer Lawrence and French beauty Marion Cotillard – I am just hoping for something customised
- One of my most interesting reports is that Alexander Wang is designing a custom Balenciaga look for Julianne Moore – that’s going to be amazing
- Sienna Miller is apparently attending with Burberry, well no surprise as she is rumoured to be the label’s new face
- Diane von Furstenberg is taking Emma Roberts
- Jessica Alba is set to attend with Tory Burch
- Topshop is getting in on the action again with Jaime King, plus the retailer is taking Julianne Hough
- Elizabeth Banks is going with Brian Atwood – so we can be assured her shoes will be hot
No word on whether anyone will be wearing Donna Karan, Prada, Versace, Alexander McQueen, or Elie Saab, or even if Nina Dobrev, Anne Hathaway, Diane Kruger or Sarah Jessica Parker will be attending – I have all my fingers and toes crossed!!!
Who are you excited about seeing and who do you want to attend?
