SAG Awards: Trend – Various Shades Of Blue

463563745 SAG Awards: Trend   Various Shades Of Blue %tag

There is always something special about the Screen Actors Guild Awards, maybe it is the fact that they are all judging one another, or that the red carpet has a relaxed nature while still being uber glamorous, or that it comes so soon after the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards that I am so giddy about the award season. Whatever it is, it never seems to disappoint.

Last year it was all about Nina Dobrev’s gorgeous Elie Saab and Jennifer Garner sparkling in Oscar de la Renta, and this year it seems that all my best dressed wore hues of blue. From the gorgeous Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi to Jennifer Lawrence’s shimmering Dior Couture gown.

I was just going to do my best three looks but I have to be honest I couldn’t decide who to cut – so it is now my top 4 beauties from the SAG Awards red carpet!!!

In at number one has to be American Hustle’s Amy Adams in this Antonio Berardi gown, not only is this shade of blue divine, but the architectural neckline and shoulder cut-out detail really marries sexy and elegance all at the same time, and the fit is impeccable on her. Amy really is having a great award season.

My second best is newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, this girl continues to impress me every time she steps out onto the red carpet and this custom Gucci gown is beautiful. It isn’t often that you see turquoise on the red carpet, but this hue really shined on her, and it was made even better with those gorgeous floral embroidered straps. Another breathtaking look – I think Lupita is easily my favourite red carpet star of the moment.

Third place was a tough decision between the two Jennifer’s – from the statuesque Jennifer Garner in a custom Max Mara gown and Jennifer Lawrence in a shimmering Dior Couture number. Both are beautiful, both so different. I think the constellation of multicoloured sequins on J-Law’s gown just pips Garner as it really did shimmer on TV, but I do love the simplicity of Garner’s – that is a great silhouette on her.

Were you a fan of the various shades of blue on the SAG Awards red carpet?

LACMA Art + Film Gala: Kate Hudson In Gucci

Gucci kate hudson LACMA Art + Film Gala: Kate Hudson In Gucci %tag

Who: Actress Kate Hudson

Where: LACMA 2013 Art + Film Gala held at LACMA in California sponsored by Gucci

Wearing: A pale pink Gucci halterneck floor-length gown with a plunging neckline, embellished bodice and cut-outs to the side, teamed with a nude box clutch

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow!!! Kate Hudson has really looked spectacular this year when she has hit the red carpet, we’ve had the sexy Balmain mini, the body-con Versace number, and the flawless Tiffany-blue Reem Acra gown that is one of my all-time favourite looks from her.

This gorgeous Gucci gown, with the shimmering bodice is high on my list of her incredible looks – not only does it fit her perfectly, I love how it shows off her toned body, but the blush tone really does balances the sexiness of the plunging neckline and looks gorgeous against the gold embellished bodice.

The only thing, and I have to be honest I am being super picky, is that I am not fussed about her hair – this dress has the wow factor, her body has the wow factor, her smoky eyes and pink lips have the wow factor – but sadly her hair looks a little underwhelming. I agree that it should be up to show off the halterneck of the gown – but it just doesn’t look as put together as the rest of her look for me.

I did say I was being super picky – for me this another breathtaking look from the Hollywood actress.

Are you a fan of Kate Hudson’s latest red carpet look?

Cover Loving: Nina Dobrev In Dior For Cosmopolitan

Cosmo US Sept Nina Cover Loving: Nina Dobrev In Dior For Cosmopolitan %tag

There have been some different poses on the September issues – there was Kate Perry doing the Flamingo for ELLE UK, the criss-cross legs and arms craziness of Jennifer Aniston for US Glamour, and then a pose I think Tyra Banks would be impressed with – the lovely Nina Dobrev doing the ‘oops my shoe just came off’ on the cover of US Cosmopolitan.

The Vampire Diaries star looks absolutely incredible on the cover in a gorgeous houndstooth Dior dress teamed with matching Valentino heels – this awkward pose isn’t easy to pull off but she really does it with ease while keeping her face and expression looking amazing. Plus I don’t normally care so much about the cover lines, but I do love how Cosmo wrapped them perfectly to show off her flawless figure.

I think I just love how Cosmo this cover is!!!

Shot by Matthias Vriens-McGrath and styled by Aya Kanai, the cover story continues to impress inside with a fashion editorial featuring looks from Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, more Valentino, and that Gucci dress that everyone can’t get enough of – we’ve seen Jennifer Lopez in it, Olivia Wilde and Chloë Moretz.

My favourite look though has to be this gorgeous Michael Kors with the orange skirt teamed with those hot laced-up boots in front of such a picturesque background - plus her hair, braided to the side is just divine.

Are you a fan of Nina Dobrev’s debut Cosmo cover?

Cover Loving: Blake Lively Wraps Up In Gucci For Lucky Magazine

Lucky Sept Blake Lively Cover Loving: Blake Lively Wraps Up In Gucci For Lucky Magazine %tag

So the September issues are finally dropping and I have been a little underwhelmed so far, well that was until I saw the gorgeous Blake Lively all wrapped up in this incredible oversized cornflower blue Gucci coat with shearling collar.

Granted with our mini heatwave that we are having wrapping up in a shearing collar coat doesn’t sound appealing – but come on you have to admit that the Gossip Girl star looks incredible on Lucky’s September cover.

Snapped by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, the actress who married Ryan Reynolds last year is the first cover girl for the magazine’s redesign with new editor-in-chief Eva Chen, if like me you are huge Teen Vogue fans you will already be familiar with her work.

Just from the cover I can see that Eva is bringing a more high-fashion feel to Lucky, which I am already excited about, and even though in the past I have enjoyed reading Lucky the covers never really drew me in – but I think that could all be changing.

Head on over to Lucky to see a preview of her cover shoot, Blake looks amazing in an Anthony Vaccarello dress, a classic DKNY trench, a sexy red gown that you will be surprised to find out is H&M, as well as cool oversized Givenchy jumper teamed with the sheer skirt that Zoe Saldana wore on the red carpet - I also love that the mag credits her wedding ring, which in case you were wondering she is wearing throughout!!!

In the accompanying interview Blake chats about dressing up, on texting Christian Louboutin for shoe advice, her style evolution, not having a stylists and how apparently her hubbie has “better taste” than her – I can’t wait to read – I have loved Blake since her GG girls as Serena van der Woodsen and this is a great cover.

What do you think of the new-look Lucky? Are you a fan of Blake Lively’s cover?

For more insight into her cover shoot – check out the behind-the-scenes video that Lucky have posted:

Cover Loving: Jennifer Lopez For W Magazine

jennifer lopez w august 2013 Cover Loving: Jennifer Lopez For W Magazine %tag

Wow, wow, wow – just look how fabulous Jennifer Lopez looks on the August cover of W magazine – seriously hot!!!

Dressed in Gucci, Jennifer Lopez has an Old Hollywood feel about her on this stunning cover shot by Mario Sorrenti and I love it.

I think the reason why I love it so much is because it is so OTT, this is J-Lo doing her best diva pose and she is working that feathered dress – it is just so glam and a little bit ridiculous – but so works for me. Also, not sure if it is just me, but it kind of reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor’s iconic boudoir scene from ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’.

As well as loving the look, can we also discuss Jennifer’s hair and make-up? Isn’t it very similar to Emma Watson’s June/July cover? But hell, who cares I am loving Jennifer’s darker and shorter hair, those curls, surely a wig but again I don’t care, I seriously can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

This cover is so not what I expected from Jennifer Lopez or an August magazine, but I can tell you I will certainly be picking this issue of W up – will you?

Oscars 2013: Jennifer Garner Stunning In Gucci

Oscars jennifer garner  Oscars 2013: Jennifer Garner Stunning In Gucci %tagWho: Jennifer Garner

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

Wearing: A custom strapless plum Gucci gown, featuring cascading ruffles down her back leading into a train, teamed with $2.5 million worth of Neil Jane jewellery, which included a statement necklace, delicate earrings and a bracelet, and a gunmetal Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch

Verdict: Jennifer Garner really has had a great award season supporting her hubbie Ben Affleck and this is one of my favourite looks and it is all down to the amazing plum colour, which looks incredible against her pale skintone.

This look has everything the Oscars deserves, dramatic ruffles down her back, a sophisticated train, a striking colour – oh and then she takes it to the next level with the glamour that incredible Neil Lane diamond necklace oozes.

I just can’t help but adore this look!!!

LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala: Amy Adams vs Cameron Diaz In Gucci Yellow

Gucci amy vs cameron LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala: Amy Adams vs Cameron Diaz In Gucci Yellow %tag

On Saturday, a host of celebrities hit the red carpet to attend the LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala host by Gucci honouring Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick – I have already gushed about Rosie, but two other ladies that also impressed me were Amy Adams and Cameron Diaz both wearing yellow.

Both went for spring/summer 2013 collection looks, Cameron opted for a short number showing off her fab legs, whereas Amy went for an elegant floor-skimming gown with a bejewelled waistband. Both look amazing, both really pull off this tricky yellow colour, not quite sunshine yellow, not quite mustard it is somewhere in-between  and in some photographs it even looked a little neon, but I love the contrast of the short and long it made both looks stand out for me.

Amy’s look is more traditional for a gala even, it is floor-length, has added sparkle with the waistband and her clutch and I love the strapless silhouette - but there is something about Cameron’s bell-sleeve belted mini that is just so fun and I absolutely love the crystal-embellished floral neckline.

Which girl in yellow gets your vote – Amy or Cameron? Even with Cameron’s legs looking amazing in this dress I am going to have to say that Amy’s long gown just pips her.
