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

 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Amanda Seyfried In Marios Schwab %tag

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. Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Amanda Seyfried In Marios Schwab %tag [Pics: Stipple.com]

Primetime Emmy Awards: Lucy Lui Sparkles In Versace

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?

Total Recall: Jessica Biel In Elie Saab Couture

JessicaBielElieSaab Total Recall: Jessica Biel In Elie Saab Couture %tag

Who: Actress Jessica Biel

Where: At the New York screening of ‘Total Recall’ hosted by InStyle

Wearing: A white lace sleeveless cocktail Elie Saab dress teamed with a matching lace shawl from the spring/summer 2012 haute couture collection, finished off with an Elie Saab textured gold clutch from the Resort 2013 collection, Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: It seems that the Total Recall promotional tour is going to be all about Couture, for the Hollywood premiere Jessica Biel faced off in Dior Couture and her co-star Kate Beckinsale went with Armani Prive, and now it seems is the turn of Elie Saab Couture.

What I do love about this look is the gorgeous lace dress, which seemed to have extra lining from the one seen on the runway, I just not sure I am loving the combination of the shawl – for me it doesn’t add anything to this look. All she needed to accessories this incredible cocktail dress is this exquisite clutch which I completely adore – the detailing in the beaded construction of the miniaudière is just divine.

Seeing Jessica looking so beautiful in white makes me wonder whether she has spoken to Elie Saab for her wedding gown – now that would be one to see!!!

Do you love this ethereal look from Jessica?

Met Gala 2012: Jessica Stam In Christian Dior Couture

DiorJessica Met Gala 2012: Jessica Stam In Christian Dior Couture %tag

Who: Model Jessica Stam

Where: At the 2012 Met Gala in New York

Wearing: An embroidered pale blue silk wool crepe evening jacket worn with pale blue georgette and chiffon evening skirt from Christian Dior Haute Couture autumn/winter 2006 collection, teamed with stacked bracelets and earrings from Lorraine Schwartz

Verdict: This is haute couture at its very best isn’t it, and one of John Galliano’s very best, it is simply exquisite with all the detailing to the jacket, and is one hell of a statement piece. I do think that only a model could pull off this look well and I love the icy-blue colouring against her skintone as well as against the gold embroidery.

This look blew me away and was one of the best last night, I think it is the intricate detailing, the fact that it isn’t a gown, and the pale colour, plus Jessica’s elegant pose – that makes it one striking look and one of my favourites.

Do you like this Dior outfit as much as me?

Elton John Oscar Party: Miley Cyrus In Roberto Cavalli

MileyCyrus Elton John Oscar Party: Miley Cyrus In Roberto Cavalli %tag

Who: Miley Cyrus

Where: At the 20th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party

Wearing: A pale grey Roberto Cavalli mermaid hem gown with metallic floral embellishment detailing, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery

Verdict: This is very old-Hollywood glamour for Miley and I can see some people saying that this look is too mature for her, but you know I kind of like it – the pale grey hue, the mermaid hem, and the gorgeous retro wave hair-style.

What do you think – too mature for her or just the right amount of glamour for Oscars night?
