Golden Globes 2013: Claire Danes Looks Stunning In Atelier Versace

claire danes versace Golden Globes 2013: Claire Danes Looks Stunning In Atelier Versace %tagWho: Golden Globe-winning actress Claire Danes

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A custom-made red Atelier Versace gown featuring gathered draping to the hip and a deep v-neckline, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery – diamond baguette straight line earrings and a three-stone diamond and ruby pinky ring

Verdict: First up before we get to the dress, which is fabulous, can we first discuss how incredible Claire Danes looks considering she only gave birth a month ago, a month people, a month – I just can’t believe how good she looks. Seriously how???!!!???

OK, enough of my jealously about her flawless figure and back to the gorgeous gown, which I think is absolute perfection – more so when Claire said in an interview to Ryan Seacrest that she only tried it on for the first time “around 9pm” – that is great craftmanship.

There was a lot of red around last night and this is most certainly one of my favourites – I just love the minimal elegance of the silhouette and the draping detailing.

Golden Globes 2013: Lucy Liu Wears Carolina Herrera

Lucy lui CarolinaHerrera Golden Globes 2013: Lucy Liu Wears Carolina Herrera %tag

Who: Lucy Liu

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A blue rose-vine patterned Jacquard strapless Carolina Herrera gown from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery and a fishtail braid

Verdict: Los Angeles maybe having a winter chill at the moment but the Elementary actress was in full bloom at this year’s Golden Globes in this gorgeous and dramatic gown from Carolina Herrera. This is the second look from the pre-fall 2013 collection this we’ve seen this week, like with Emmy Rossum’s constellations print, this another very ladylike ‘princess’ dress that was made for the red carpet.

I always seem to like what Lucy wears on the red carpet as she takes risks, which to be honest is easy when you look as good as her, and I absolutely adore this dress. I love everything about this look from the romantic print to the way the dress highlights her tiny waist, to the exquisite Lorraine Schwartz pink-gold, 2.5 million dollar drop earrings with over 30 carats of diamonds, and how she has finished it off with a gorgeous fishtail braid and barely there make-up.

Lucy is gorgeous in this dress and is most certainly in my top five favourites of the night – I simply love it.

Golden Globes 2013: Allison Williams In J. Mendel

Allison Williams Jmendel Golden Globes 2013: Allison Williams In J. Mendel %tagWho: Actress Allison Williams from Golden Globe-winning HBO series Girls

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A black silk-gazar J.Mendel gown featuring a plunging V neckline, a tear-drop open back and a mermaid train from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewels

Verdict: Award red carpets and mermaid silhouettes go hand-in-hand and there were a lot on show at this year’s Golden Globes. One of my favourites had to be this J. Mendel gown that Allison Williams wore because it was bold, daring and so, so sexy.

Sometimes mermaid trains can make a dress look fussy and can age young starlets, this gorgeous J.Mendel however mixes the traditional silhouette up with a sexy plunging V-neckline and open back to make it look modern and fresh. I like it in black, however I think Allison could have pulled off this look more if it had been done in a bright colour.

With such a bold silhouette I was pleased to see that the Girls actress went for a minimal look with her accessories and hair and make-up, adding a pop of colour with her Lorraine Schwartz earrings and a slick bun for an elegant and refined look.

Golden Globes 2013: Taylor Swift Wows In Donna Karan Atelier

Taylor swift donna karan Golden Globes 2013: Taylor Swift Wows In Donna Karan Atelier %tag

Who: Taylor Swift

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A dark plum taffeta Donna Karan Atelier gown that features a low back, dramatic train, and panels in mesh ombre from nude to dark plum which contour the body, teamed with statement Lorraine Schwartz blackened platinum, diamond and ruby earrings

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – seriously this girl needs to get dumped more often as being newly single has really made her red carpet looks better.

Donna Karan knows how to make gorgeous gowns but she also understands young starlets and this is modern, fresh and sexy and is easily Taylor’s best ever look. Everything from the colour to the sexy low back and the mesh panel down the side – I am so pleased that this dress made it onto the red carpet as it is truly stunning.

I also have to point out her statement earrings, which was another trend from this year’s Golden Globes red carpet, they perfectly match the dress and occassion.

But what makes this look gorgeous is her attitude she really worked it on the red carpet if she hadn’t this dress wouldn’t have worked.

Great job Donna Karan you’ve made me a fan of Taylor Swift!!!

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Amanda Seyfried In Marios Schwab

Who: Amanda Seyfried

Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: A cobalt blue Marios Schwab midi dress, featuring an embellished lace bodice and chiffon skirt from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with Roger Vivier heels and Lorraine Schwartz earrings

Verdict: Not only are London Fashion Week designers having a red carpet moment in Hollywood this week with Simone Rocha, Peter Pilotto and Julien Macdonald designs being showcased at the People’s Choice Awards this week, but Amanda seems to love London-based designers having worn Alexander McQueen a number of times during the promo tour for Les Misérables.

This look is one of the most fashion-forward dresses on the red carpet last night, I wouldn’t say it was my favourite of the night but I do like that she isn’t afraid to take style risks. I love the colour and the detailing to the bodice, but I would have loved for it to be floor-length, the diamond-shaped hemline doesn’t work for me.

What I do absolutely love is her hair and make-up, from the glossy top-knot to the cat-eyes and nude lips – simply gorgeous.

lucyLuiVersace Primetime Emmy Awards: Lucy Lui Sparkles In Versace %tagWho: Lucy Liu

Where: At the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A structured, strapless, silver sequinned Versace metal gown, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz 30-carat platinum and diamond stud earrings with a 9-carat rock crystal and diamond platinum ring and a silver barrel clutch

Verdict: Yeah to Lucy Liu being back on the red carpet she always looks so beautiful and edgy and I adore this space-age silver sequinned beauty by Versace.

I love the armour-inspired bodice, the way the gown shows off her tiny waist, and I love, love, love the large silver paillettes – this is a divine metallic gown that Lucy is working to perfection.

What do you think of Lucy’s silver gown?

Venice Film Festival: Selena Gomez In Atelier Versace

SelenaGomezVersace Venice Film Festival: Selena Gomez In Atelier Versace %tagWho: Selena Gomez

Where: At the premiere for her new film Spring Breakers at the 69th Annual Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A strapless pale pink leather Atelier Versace gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, featuring a stencil design and a dramatic draping that gathered at her hip and then cascaded down her skirt to the side, teamed with a Judith Leiber minaudière and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery

Verdict: On paper, this dress should have been worn by a red carpet big-hitter like Kate Hudson, Diane Kruger, or Penelope Cruz, but some how Selena really makes this exquisite gown work for her.

Last year she was a Disney starlet, cute, adorable but still very much a teenager, this year she really has stepped it up, hitting twenty has turned her into a screen siren in the making for me. I loved her sexy Roberto Cavalli mini she wore the MuchMusic Video Awards, I had serious leg envy when she worked a Versace look to launch her fragrance, but what really made her stand-out for me this year had to be her high-fashion editorial for the July issue of American ELLE – it really showed off her sexy side.

Like with newcomer Maika Monroe who wowed last week in Marchesa, Selena came to Venice and completely stole the show. I love the blush-toned colour of the gown, I love the drama of the side draping, I totally adore her side-swept tousled waves, and I really don’t think her first major appearance at the Venice Film Festival could have gone much better!!!

Do you rate Selena’s look or do you think this dress is a little too mature for her?
