I wasn’t going to bother doing a play-by-play look at the Vanity Fair red carpet, **the Oscars red carpet was a little disappointing this year**, well that was until I heard that Diane Kruger was to wear custom Donna Karan Atelier, and as soon as I saw the hybrid dress-come-jumpsuit creation I knew that I couldn’t not share it – just look how amazing it is!!!
Who: Jennifer Lopez
Where: At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California
Wearing: A silver beaded Zuhair Murad gown with cape detailing, plunging neckline and thigh-high split from the autumn/winter 2014 couture collection, teamed with nude sandals and a matching Jimmy Choo tube clutch
Verdict: I have a huge girl crush on Jennifer Lopez and I thought she looked incredible at the Golden Globes. Jennifer always looks like a bombshell but she really did turn up the sexiness without looking like she was trying too hard, I am talking about you Kate Hudson.
Granted there wasn’t anything original about her look, it had a thigh high split to show off her legs, of course she went for a plunging neckline, and the gown most certainly showed off her incredible curvy figure. But there was also an elegance about this gown that made it perfect for award season and I think that was helped by the silver beading, exquisitely crafted, as well as the dramatic train.
Of course it wouldn’t be J-Lo without amazing hair and I don’t think she could have made it any bigger if she tried – I seriously loved her look from head-to-toe.
I don’t know any bride, who doesn’t want an incredible wedding gown, but it is hard to get something unique, dramatic-yet-still elegant, with an Old Hollywood feel that is within some reasonable budget. Add on top the rest of my very long wishlist, not too white, a wow skirt, beading or embroidery and with romantic floaty sleeves – I thought it was more fantasy than reality.
I wasn’t against a modern, boutique gown, I would have loved the money to treat myself to a designer number like Vera Wang or Elie Saab, but I was realistic with my finances and I just felt that a vintage beauty would be more fitting to our elopement wedding in New York, and would possible give me that couture, red carpet feeling without the price tag.
Who: Zoe Saldana
Where: At the world premiere of her new flick Marvel’s space adventure ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles
Verdict: Well I think it is safe to say that pregnancy isn’t going to stop Zoe Saldana making edgy fashion choices and I am so pleased as I think she looks insane in this sexy-chic Louis Vuitton outfit.
I love how this look is edgy, with the flash of her white bralet and accented with that harness-like belt detailing, but it also has a elegance with the long sleeves and jagged edge lace to the skirt, as well as a sexiness with the semi-sheer nature of the dress.
Add those feathered Jimmy Choo heels and that gorgeous side swept faux bob and for me this is one amazing look, but I wonder what it would have looked like without the belt.
Are you a fan of Zoe Saldana’s latest red carpet look?
