Cover Loving: Diane Kruger In Hugo Boss For Vogue Germany

I do love a magazine cover that portrays movement, it always makes it more striking and appealing, and this is one gorgeous cover from Diane Kruger for Vogue Germany’s July 2014 issue.

Captured by Camilla Akrans, who always seems to impress me, Diane Kruger really does make a fairly boring sequinned top and skirt ensemble from Hugo Boss’ autumn/winter 2014 collection, the first designed by Jason Wu look amazing. It just shows what styling, setting and movement can do for a piece of clothing.

I also think the fresh pastel pink colour helps this cover, it really shimmers nicely, and I love the fun pose from Diane and how they’ve made the Vogue letters all quirky. I also have to say her hair slicked back and minimal make-up just add to the charm of this cover.

You might also be thinking that the look seems a little familiar to you, well that will be because Diane wore something very similar to the Met Gala, I really think if her Met Gala dress had been in this cute girlie colour it would have stood out more.

What do you think – are you a fan of Diane Kruger’s latest magazine cover?

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?

Video Loving: Battle Of The Fragrance Blondes

BlakevsGwyneth Video Loving: Battle Of The Fragrance Blondes %tag

I have never noticed before until both Gucci and Hugo Boss unveiled their latest fragrance faces that blondes obviously smell better as well as having more fun!!! This week both luxury labels released their short films and both it seems went for a old school Hollywood glamour, Veronica Lake-inspired waves, a room with a view, as well as the trademark sexy walk and the alluring spray shots.

Even if you aren’t that keen on Blake Lively or Gwyneth Paltrow, I don’t think you can deny how amazing they both look in these ads, and I find it staggering that there is a 15 year age gap. Seriously is Gwynnie getting younger?

But striking looks aside in the battle for the best blonde I am going to have to give it to Blake and her Gucci ad, not only does she look stunning in a gold sequin Gucci gown, but it just feels more special and memorable – maybe it is all the gold, very Olympian of them, or maybe it is the historic setting of the Goldstein Residence – but for me this just feels more opulent.

The Hugo Boss ad I think suffers from bad timing, if it didn’t come out at the same time as Gucci’s maybe I would have thought differently about it – but for me it just feels flat. Gwyneth looks stunning in her one-shoulder Hugo Boss dress, but I felt a little weird watching her getting ready – I don’t know it just doesn’t sparkle.

But seeing both Blake and Gwyneth it made me wonder what other famous blondes have rocked a fragrance campaign – and just with a quick spell of research it seems a lot!!! All the big names from Dior to Chanel and Calvin Klein have all gone for a blonde in recent years – literally everyone from Diane Kruger to Scarlett Johannsson and even Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman owned their scents with blonde locks.

I know I am going to get a comment that Keira Knightley is working her brunette hair in a Chanel fragrance campaign and Kristen Stewart was just unveiled by Balenciaga – but come on you know what I am getting at – a high percentage of fragrances seem to be fronted by blondes – I just found that interesting.

So who rocked their blonde locks better for you – Blake or Gwyneth?blondefragranceads Video Loving: Battle Of The Fragrance Blondes %tag

Boss Boat Bash: Diane Guest Of Honour

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: Hugo Boss’ new yacht in London

Wearing: A BOSS Black bustier top with cropped trousers and animal print heels

Verdict: Diane has been busy lately in Europe and this week she was guest of honour as she christened Hugo Boss’ new yacht in London. I like the strapless tuxedo bustier – but for me it is the peculiar shape of the print heels that gets my attention and I’m not sure if it is in a good way.
