Resort 2013: Freida, Leighton & Hilary Dazzle At Salvatore Ferragamo

Last week fashion label Salvatore Ferragamo became the first Italian fashion house to stage a runway presentation at the Louvre museum, and they had a star-studded front row for the occasion with Freida Pinto, Leighton Meester and Hilary Swank.

Fresh from wearing Salvatore Ferragamo in Cannes, Freida Pinto continues to surprise me, I absolutely love her look for the presentation. Wearing an all-black ensemble from the label’s autumn/winter 2012 collection, I love the sheer sleeves on this embroidered dress as well as the added drama in its velvet neckline. This is a chic look that works perfectly with just a pop of colour to her lips and nails.

Gossip Girls actress Leighton Meester looked stunning in a rich red off-the-shoulder peasant blouse, teamed with an embellished pencil skirt, all from the Salvatore Ferragamo autumn/winter 2012 collection. One thing I am not too sure about with this look has to be whether Leighton can pull off such a rich hue – what do you think?

I am not sure why buy Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank isn’t really on my radar red carpet wise and I have to be honest after seeing her in this black chiffon dress with gold lace detailing, also from the designer’s autumn/winter 2012 collection, I am seriously questioning why as she looks divine!!!

This rivals Freida for top spot for me, who would have thought I would put Leighton in last spot, but on this occasion she was out-done. Hilary’s look was glamorous, chic and completely flawless I adore the simple ponytail, and most of all those black strappy Ferragamo heels are insane, love them!!!

The Resort 2013 collection itself, out of the 43 looks there was only one black ensemble the rest were either white, tan, or various shades of nude. It had an ethereal vibe to it with the colour palette, where as the clothing weren’t flowing and sheer – they were more glitzy and embellished, with some dresses constructed from panels laced together with leather cords or in crocheted pieces finished with fringe.

One thing that definitely came across with this collection was the craftsmanship of the Italian label, every piece looked exquisite and detailed, and I can see a number of celebrities working these dresses in the near future.

83rd Oscars: Hilary Swank in Gucci Couture

Who: Actress Hilary Swank

Where: At the 83rd annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A strapless Gucci Premiere Haute Couture gown with silver sequins and crystal encrusted metallic bustier and an ombre feathered train, teamed with smoke grey satin platform sandals with crystal encrusted heels

Verdict: Normally Hilary goes for a column gown, so it was nice to see that even though she is still working the strapless look she went for a bit of drama with that amazing train.

The ombre feathers are seriously amazing. This is just an elegant look for her.
