Cannes 2014: Nicole Kidman In Giorgio Armani Privé

Armani Nicole kidman Cannes 2014: Nicole Kidman In Giorgio Armani Privé %tag

Who: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the Opening Ceremony of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in France and the premiere of Olivier Dahan’s ‘Grace of Monaco’

Wearing: A strapless blue embroidered Giorgio Armani Privé lace bustier gown featuring crystal and pearl detailing adapted from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with Harry Winston diamond bracelet and earrings

Verdict: Wow, Nicole Kidman really knows how to work the Cannes red carpet, last year she really shined as a jury member wearing creations by Dior, L’Wren Scott, Chanel, and Valentino, and with her film opening the 2014 festival she really did look like a star in this gorgeous, exquisely embellished Armani Privé gown.

Cannes is all about the OTT, bigger the better generally works here, and this gown is divine – the detailing is so intricate that it must have taken hours to make, and more than that it looks heavy and Nicole wears it with ease and pose.

Finishing off her look with diamonds from Harry Winston is always a great choice – that bracelet is beautiful but for me it is all about those diamond cluster earrings. I am so glad that she didn’t wear a necklace that would have been over-kill and would have distracted from the gorgeous sweetheart neckline and embellishments.

What do you think of Nicole Kidman’s Cannes red carpet look?

Met Gala 2014: My Best Dressed List

So I have already shared with you the battle of the pink, well it seemed wrong being a Barbie girl not to dedicate a whole post to my favourite shade, well here is my best dressed list, which was actually hard to narrow down as I thought this year’s Met Gala honouring Charles James was exquisite.

Best Dressed #1 – Blake Lively

Has to be Blake Lively for me, as the face of Gucci Première it wasn’t a surprised that she turned to the Italian fashion house for the Met Gala, and I am thrilled that it was so old Hollywood as this is when she really is at her best. Adorned with more than one million paillettes, this custom silk chiffon blush Gucci Première gown was hands down one of my favourite of the night.

I loved how it was dramatic with the cape-like train, sexy with the plunging neckline and nipped in waist, as well as being delicate in the colour and the embellishments. Add to that her gorgeous choice of statement Lorraine Schwartz jewels, her signature side-swept waves and her arm candy for the night hubbie Ryan Reynolds, who looked pretty dapper in a Gucci Made to Order midnight blue velvet Signoria tuxedo, and it makes for a stunning look. 

 

#2 – Karolina Kurkova

I love that the Met Gala always brings out the models onto the red carpet, each year they always wearing the most daring and striking looks, and this year was no different with Karolina Kurkova in this dramatic custom Marchesa ballgown – the structure of the dress and the floral print makes this a work of art and so very Charles James and I adore it. Add the $1 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds that she is wearing and this became a look to beat.

 

#3 – Amy Adams

Amy Adams really has been on a roll this year with her red carpet looks, her award season was near flawless and this metallic Oscar de la Renta is another incredible look. From the autumn/winter 2014 collection this gown wasn’t custom like most of the other looks but it sure as hell looked like it was made specifically for her. The fit of this strapless gown is impeccable – I love the heart-shaped neckline, the ruched waistline and the dramatic train – and those David Webb earrings really do finish off the look.

 

#4 – Dita Von Teese

Wow, wow, wow. If ever there was a time for Zac Posen to shine it was at a Charles James themed red carpet, his use of drama and structure was made for this year’s Met Gala and my favourite of his looks was this fun and exquisitely crafted pale pink mermaid gown worn by Dita Von Teese. OK, so I am a little obsessed with the burlesque star but come on doesn’t she look incredible. I love how her use of red in her lippy and clutch really plays up the red hem detailing of the gown. I love this look. 

#5 – Charlize Theron

It was hard to select this final spot, thank god I had already done the pink beauties, but I think Charlize Theron in her monochrome Dior Couture gown paired with a tuxedo jacket thrown over her shoulders was just a divine way to honour the White Tie & Diamonds dress code. I’ve made no secret that I love women in tuxedos, I just love it when women rock menswear looks while still being feminine and for me Charlize strikes the right balance here by pairing the tux jacket with a gorgeous flowing dress and those statement Fred Leighton earrings. Gorgeous from head-to-toe, but then again isn’t she always!!!

 

Honorary Mention – Diane Kruger

I couldn’t miss out my girl crush – Diane Kruger. So her look might not have been one of my favourites, I just felt her embellished ice-white Hugo Boss beauty didn’t stand out as much as some of the other gowns. It was gorgeous though, I especially loved the pleated overlay, the styling of her complementary pearl-white clutch and her forties-style chignon was one of the best hairstyles of the night. Oh and she did have the best arm candy in Joshua Jackson who looked great in a Hugo Boss suit.

Who was your best dressed at the 2014 Met Gala?

Oscars 2013: Sandra Bullock In Elie Saab Couture

Oscars sandra bullock Oscars 2013: Sandra Bullock In Elie Saab Couture %tagWho: Sandra Bullock

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

Wearing: A black beaded Elie Saab Couture gown featuring lace panels from the spring/summer 2013 haute couture collection, teamed with $1 million worth of diamonds from Harry Winston including diamond earstuds, a diamond cluster brooch and three diamond rings, and a Swarovski clutch

Verdict: As you know I love Elie Saab and I was so pleased to see Sandra Bullock in this gorgeous black beaded and lace beauty. There is an elegance about this cap sleeve design, as well as sexiness with the lace panels that was perfect for not just the Oscars but also The Blind Side actress who looked incredible.

As the dress was so exquisite in its detail I love that Sandra didn’t over-do it with her hair, make-up and accessories, and I completely adore the Harry Winston diamond brooch that was styled in her hair – simply divine.Oscars sandra bullock HW Oscars 2013: Sandra Bullock In Elie Saab Couture %tag[Pics: via Elie Saab/Harry Winston]

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!!!

Oscars 2013: Charlize Theron In Dior Couture

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

Wearing: A white Dior Couture gown featuring embroidery detailing to the peplum and a train, teamed with Harry Winston jewellery worth $4.5 million, including emerald-cut earstuds, and two vintage 1959 diamond bracelets set in platinum

Verdict: This gown made such an impact on the red carpet, but for me it really shined when Charlize Theron was on stage presenting, it showed off the structure of the gown and the sparkle of the embellishments that made me love it even more.

This gown is striking without being too flashy, but I think that Charlize could have worked bright accessories, hot pink lips, or even statement earrings – all would have made this dress shine even more and show off that adorable pixie cut of hers.

Do you agree – could Charlize have done more with this gorgeous gown?

Who: Jessica Chastain

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A cobalt blue asymmetrical structured Roland Mouret column gown, with origami pleated draping detail to the bodice, teamed with Harry Winston earrings and bracelet

Verdict: There was a lot of black and monochrome styles last night from the likes of Anne Hathaway, SJP, Emila Fox, Gemma Arterton, Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Garner, Thandie Newton and Alicia Vikander, so when I spied a pop of colour on last night’s BAFTA red carpet I was overjoyed and one of my favourites had to be Jessica Chastain’s gorgeous Roland Mouret gown.

This dress fitted her perfectly, the blue was divine against her hair colour, and I loved that she added a red lippy – this was Hollywood glamour at its very best and I am so pleased that she braved the snowy conditions.

SAG Awards: Jessica Chastain In Alexander McQueen

jessica chastain mcqueen SAG Awards: Jessica Chastain In Alexander McQueen %tag

Who: Jessica Chastain

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless red duchesse satin Alexander McQueen gown from the pre-autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with a Harry Winston necklace

Verdict: As you will know I wasn’t impressed with Jessica Chastain’s Golden Globes look but at last night’s SAG Awards she really showcased her red carpet pulling power in this Jessica Rabbit-esq Alexander McQueen gown.

First of all how incredible does her body look in this gorgeous gown – I love the sexy silhouette on her, she really should wear gowns like this more. Everything from the colour, which works perfectly against her fiery red hair, to the sweetheart neckline, to the diamond necklace – this is one of the most glamorous looks of the night.

After the Golden Globes I was worried what we would get for the Oscars but this look gives me hope!!!
