Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Chastain In Calvin Klein Collection

jessica chastain calvin kle Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Chastain In Calvin Klein Collection %tag

Who: Jessica Chastain, who picked up the award for Best Actress in a Drama for her role in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A seaform silk crepe custom Calvin Klein Collection halter dress, teamed with Harry Winston diamonds

Verdict: This dress was not what I was expecting from Jessica Chastain, I was expecting something a little more edgy, instead this gown has an ethereal quality to it that I don’t think translated well.

I look at it and I want to love it, and in part I do, the colour especially is perfection against her skintone and her fiery coloured hair, and I loved the backless style of the gown, I just felt it wasn’t fitted very well.

Considering this was a custom gown it just looked like the bodice was a little big and the silhouette of the gown was unflattering it really needed to be nipped in more at her waist – she has a great figure that isn’t being shown off in this dress.

What did totally work were her jewels as she was dripping in Harry Winston diamonds worth $3 million – that cuff is gorgeous.

Do you rate Jessica’s look?

Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Alba In Oscar de la Renta

jessica alba odlr Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Alba In Oscar de la Renta %tag

Who: Jessica Alba

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A strapless melon silk-faille Oscar de la Renta gown featuring a trumpet skirt, sweetheart neckline from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo Kalpa platform sandals, a Roger Vivier clutch and an incredible Harry Winston diamond necklace

Verdict: Melon is an interesting description to this dress I would go for coral but hey who am I to argue with Oscar de la Renta. This gown is gorgeous, I love the neckline, the drama of the trumpet skirt and train, and even the colour – it kind of fitting into the nude/light pink trend that swept the Golden Globes red carpet.

But come on surely all eyes are on her neck and that amazing Harry Winston necklace, which according to the press release is valued at $5.8 million – that is serious bling – I bet she has a bodyguard or two keeping an eye on that beauty!!!

The only thing I am not loving has to be that furry clutch – for me it is a little unnecessary – but hey such a tiny thing as everything else is fab including her gorgeous old-Hollywood locks.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Jessica Chastain Dazzles In Prada

Who: Jessica Chastain, winner of the Best Actress accolade for her role in Zero Dark Thirty

Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: A red Prada gown featuring jewel embellishments to the plunging neckline and bow detailing to the back, teamed with Harry Winston jewellery

Verdict: I love, love, love red dresses on the red carpet, add in fiery red hair and gorgeous embellishments and I am most certainly sold.

For some I am sure this look from Jessica is a little too tame, well that maybe the case from the front but then you see that incredible embellished-bow on the back – seriously wow!!!

Everything about this look is gorgeous – from the dress to the incredible jewels to her flawless make-up and Old Hollywood waves. I think it is going to be a great award season for Jessica.

Exhibition: Hollywood Costume At The V&A

VAHollywoodCostume Exhibition: Hollywood Costume At The V&A %tag

I have been getting excited about seeing the V&A’s Hollywood Costume exhibition since it was announced earlier this year. I just couldn’t wait to see Audrey Hepburn’s dress and pearls from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, all the marvellous creations of costume designer Edith Head, as well as getting up close and personal with the replica Harry Winston Isadora necklace as seen in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, well last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the press preview and I wasn’t disappointed.

This is a huge exhibition, there are more than a hundred costumes from some of the most iconic films – from Scarlett O’Hara’s green curtain dress from Gone with the Wind, Joan Crawford’s blue gingham waitress uniform in Mildred Pierce, John Travolta’s white-3-piece suit from Saturday Night Fever, and there is even a huge displays dedicated to Indiana Jones – complete with fedora hat and whip.

Situated over three rooms, this exhibition really embraces the world of movies, literally full of lights, camera and action *sorry couldn’t resist*. As well as having the costumes on displays the lighting, the sound, and the use of technology makes you feel like you are in the cinema. Granted it maybe a little dark in places, a little noisy, and somewhat spooky seeing a slow-moving image of the actors face displayed on a TV screen suspended above the costume, but I think that adds to the atmosphere of the exhibition.

The three rooms are designed to tell the story of costume design, from the role of the costume designer in cinema, the creative process of collaborations, and finishing up with the finale, which is basically an overload of all the best known costumes in cinema history – all your heroes and heroines are there. Even some of my favourites are included such as Katharine Hepburn’s jewelled evening gown from The Philadelphia Story, Keira Knightley’s green silk from Atonement, Barbra Streisand’s Funny Girl ball gown, and Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods even shines in her pink two-piece suit.

As the exhibition is sponsored by Harry Winston the jewellery has re-created the famous ‘Isadora’ necklace as worn by Kate Hudson in one of my favourite rom-coms How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Seeing the diamond cluster necklace with its 51.94 carat yellow sapphire drop pendant is one of my highlights – also her yellow silk dress is just as stunning as it is on-screen.

Another highlight was seeing Edith Head’s pale green suit designed for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds from 1963, this section really brings the costume to life with the use of technology. I don’t want to give it away, but I could have spent all day just checking this one section out, the interviews and the sketches were really incredible – also pretty cool seeing the birds fly over the display.

The exhibition is open to the public until January 27, 2013 – so you don’t need to rush – give yourself plenty of time to take it all in. Tickets are £14 each and I would recommend booking online – this is going to be a popular exhibition.

I am not going to spoil the exhibition – but can you name all the below films from the costume?

Prometheus: Noomi Rapace In Valentino

Noomi Prometheus: Noomi Rapace In Valentino %tag

Who: Noomi Rapace

Where: At the Prometheus UK premiere in London

Wearing: A black embroidered Valentino gown with a draped v-neck to the front and back and a semi-sheer skirt from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with simple Harry Winston jewels

Verdict: This look has me a little confused, Noomi obviously wanted to standout at the premiere of her latest film by wearing this elegant and striking Valentino gown, but she doesn’t do anything with it for me.

Don’t get me wrong she looks lovely, but lovely doesn’t get all the attention this gown deserves. Granted her hair is chic, but I want more – I think this gown needed a statement piece of jewellery maybe a bold necklace or bright earrings, or even a colourful clutch, just something.

What do you think – are you loving this look as it is or do you also want more?

Cover Loving: Megan Fox Ladylike For Jalouse

JalouseMegan1 Cover Loving: Megan Fox Ladylike For Jalouse %tag

It is fair to say that Megan Fox is generally sporting lingerie or a bikini in most of her magazine covers, I don’t think I have ever seen her look so ladylike before, and I thank Jalouse for making my day. Jalouse is one of my favourite French magazines their editorial spreads are so impressive and creative and I am excited about the April issue after seeing these snaps of Megan Fox taken by Alexei Hay.

I am not saying that I love everything about the cover, the rubber gloves are creeping me out slightly, but what I do love is the ladylike Emporio Armani jacket, the sky blue colour is gorgeous against her skintone, as well as the Philip Treacy hat, the side braid, and those gorgeous Harry Winston and Bulgari jewels. Seriously chic styling, oh and her face is flawless.

The rest of the editorial is just as amazing, I love the old school Hollywood styling, the glam make-up, the tears, the crazy amount of hats, the lashings of jewels, and it has made me realise how much I have been missing Megan!!!

84th Oscars: Natalie Portman Shines In Vintage Dior

NatalieDior 84th Oscars: Natalie Portman Shines In Vintage Dior %tag

Who: Natalie Portman

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A vintage red chiffon silk polka-dot Christian Dior haute couture gown from 1954, teamed with a Harry Winston v-shape cluster necklace and drop earrings, and a black box clutch

Verdict: As the face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume it isn’t really a surprise that she would turn to Dior for something a little special for her return to the Oscars as last year’s Best Actress winner. I love that she is channelling Grace Kelly with this 50’s inspired look, and the jewels really complement the old-Hollywood glamour to perfection. I think that Harry Winston v-neck cluster necklace is my best piece of jewellery of the night, just piping Gwyneth’s diamond cuff.
