Oscars 2015: Jenna Dewan-Tatum In Zuhair Murad

Who: Jenna Dewan-Tatum

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A white Zuhair Murad couture gown from the spring/summer 2015 collection, featuring a wrap effect to the bodice and silver embellishments, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewels

Verdict: Wow, Jenna Dewan-Tatum takes home the plus 1 award for sure in this gorgeous, elegant gown. It was shown on the catwalk with a cape, which I loved and to be honest I would have loved to see on the red carpet. I think it would have been fun to see Jenna to go for a dramatic statement.

I love that it was a classy look, it really showed off her beauty, and her subtle sexy, and I really think her jewellery was one of my favourites of the night.

Just beautiful. 

Oscars 2015: Rosamund Pike In Givenchy

Who: Rosamund Pike

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A custom, strapless crimson red Givenchy Haute Couture gown, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz earrings

Verdict: Finally an award season look from Rosamund Pike that I can get excited about, this red Givenchy Couture gown with its exquisite embroidery and sexy silhouette is the best she has looked. 

This gown is sexy, she was really working that thigh-high split, and I loved the cinched in waist from the built-in corset, it really gave her a great hourglass figure.

What I loved most is that this wasn’t boring, it fit her and it was vibrant. We had to wait all award season for her to show us her Hollywood style power and it was worth it.

CFDA Awards 2014: Blake Lively In Michael Kors

blake-lively-cfda-awards

Who: Blake Lively

Where: At the 2014 CFDA Awards, hosted by Swarovski, held at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center in New York

Wearing: A sequinned Michael Kors dress with a scalloped hemline from the Resort 2015 collection, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz diamond hoops and a stack of the designer jewellers’ wood and diamond bracelets, pink suede heels and a headband

Verdict: Most of the talk about the CFDA Awards red carpet has been about Rihanna’s ‘naked’ dress but for me I think everyone should be talking about how Blake Lively just looked like a true ’60s bombshell, I am seriously loving her Barbarella hairdo and Alice band. 

Everything about this dress works for me – the sparkles, the scalloped hemline, the mini-dress length, the colour, and the cute styling – I think the only thing I think I would change are the shoes they look a little too chunky for this glamorous look.

More than anything this dress is fun, while still keeping with Blake’s statuesque glamour – but it is her flawless hair and make-up that really makes me take notice. My girl crush on her is getting to Diane Kruger proportions.

What do you think of Blake’s ’60s look?

Met Gala 2014: Disney Villans vs Fairytale Princess

The Met Gala always brings out the best in fashion and the hottest stars, this year was no exception for the Charles James ‘White Tie & Diamonds’ themed bash, and it looks like some celebs took their inspiration from Disney’s up-coming flick, Maleficent.

Channelling Maleficent’s Gothic glamour was Beyonce who captivated the red carpet outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Wearing a custom beaded Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown, Beyonce really stood out in this sexy look with its plunging neckline and very revealing back.

As ever Beyonce really excluded the attitude and confidence to pull this exquisite gown off, much like Angelina Jolie in the Maleficent movie, and her look really is pulled together with her statement Lorraine Schwartz jewels, black veil, and her bold burgundy lip.

Only Beyonce could take inspiration from a Disney villain and be one of the best dressed at the gala!!!

There were a number of contenders for Aurora’s fairytale chic crown, there was Blake Lively in a shimmering blush Gucci gown, Suki Waterhouse in a blush ruffle number by Burberry, but for me the fairest of them all had to be footwear designer Tabitha Simmons who looked at one with nature in this floral masterpiece by Dolce & Gabbana

This gown really feels like Aurora, it’s whimsical, ethereal, and gorgeous with all the floral appliqués adorning the bodice and skirt. Simply divine and perfect for a Princess.

Who wins Beyonce or Tabitha?
