Golden Globes 2015: Diane Kruger In Emilia Wickstead

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A silver Emilia Wickstead tailored gown with sweeping train, teamed with a Emm Kuo clutch and Kwiat jewellery

Verdict: Diane Kruger has a great sense of style and I have to own up to having a total girl crush on her, so of course I was blown away by this gorgeous, elegant look, and I just couldn’t take my eyes off how it was tailored to perfection, the shimmer-effect fabric literally followed the contours of her incredible figure.

I love it when British designers get recognition on the red carpet and this no doubt will help put Emilia Wickstead on the map in Hollywood, but I wonder if it wasn’t for the fact Diane is a style icon on the red carpet would this gown be getting as much attention? I think it would have been liked but wouldn’t have wowed in quite the same way.

There is something about how Diane puts looks together, with the styling of the mother-of-pearl clutch, the statement pieces of jewellery and Old Hollywood waves that really pulls this look together to make it a knockout.

When there are so many gowns adorned with embellishments or featuring sexy cut-outs I find it refreshing that a minimal gown like this can bring its own sex appeal to the party with the help of a blonde bombshell like Diane Kruger and some exquisite tailoring.

What do you think – were you blown away by Diane Kruger’s look?

SAG Awards: Anne Hathaway In Giambattista Valli Couture

anne-hathaway-GValli

Who: Anne Hathaway

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

Wearing: A black silk embroidered tulle Giambattista Valli gown from the Haute Couture spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo Kalpa sandals and Kwiat jewellery

Verdict: There was a lot of black again last night on the SAG Awards red carpet and one of the standout looks had to be from Anne Hathaway. I am not sure this is my favourite look from her, I do love that she went for something other than a column gown, but I would have like the dress to have been a bit more dramatic.

With that I mean I wish it was a little shorter, showed off her ankles and those killer Jimmy Choo heels, and that the tulle skirt was a little bigger, more frothy, more girlie if you like. I do get a vintage Hollywood feel about the look with her pixie cut, but I wanted it to be a little bit more extreme – as it is I just like it rather than loving it.

So we’ve had a white moment at the Golden Globes with Chanel Couture and now black with this Couture number, so can we expect a splash of colour for the Oscars???
