Cannes Film Festival: Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton

CAnnes fanbingbing LV Cannes Film Festival: Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton %tag

Who: Chinese actress Fan Bingbing

Where: At the Opening Night of The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival for the Great Gatsby Cannes Film Festival premiere held at the Theatre Lumiere

Wearing: A duchess satin strapless Louis Vuitton gown with a sequinned bodice, finishing off her look with a Louis Vuitton minaudière and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: What I love about Cannes is the drama of the red carpet, the gowns are always that much bigger, luxurious, and generally custom. For the past few years Fan Bingbing has really shined through with her incredible Asian-inspired gowns like last year when she looked like she was wearing a tapestry.

It is hard for any dress to top last year but this gorgeous rose pink one does a good job. I love the long train, the intricate detailing of the bodice, and it all works perfectly styled with a gold tasselled Louis Vuitton minaudière and her Chopard jewellery.

Oscars 2013: Reese Witherspoon In Louis Vuitton

Oscars reece witherspoon LV Oscars 2013: Reese Witherspoon In Louis Vuitton %tagWho: Reese Witherspoon

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A custom Louis Vuitton Klein blue silk faille strapless corset gown, featuring a contrasting black bow trim to the bustier and a train, teamed with Louis Vuitton fine jewellery and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: This was one of my favourite gown’s of the night and it was all because of the bold colour, it stood out against her blonde side-swept wavy locks and with a red carpet filled with nude tones I loved that she went with colour.

I know that I state Old Hollywood glamour maybe too much, but Reese was definitely oozing sophistication and sex appeal in this gorgeous yet simple gown, and I love that she didn’t over-do her make-up and jewellery – minimal and subtle worked perfectly.

Cover Loving: Charlotte Free For Flare

Flare charlotte free Cover Loving: Charlotte Free For Flare %tag

As soon as I saw this cover I couldn’t help but repeat the word ‘Beetlejuice’ three times, seriously I sometimes think I’m programmed by the movies I love, but wow what a cover from model of the moment Charlotte Free.

Flare always seem to get it right whether it is an A-list celebrity or a model cover and this is one of my favourite model covers as it is showing off her personality as well as the styling, which totally makes me wish I had skinny legs so I could pull of these ‘Beetlejuice’ striped black and white Genetic jeans.

I love the combination of the Comme des Garçons jacket, the dotty printed Equipment shirt and those Louis Vuitton platforms and I reckon we might see some variations on this paraded at London Fashion Week in street style shots.

Even with the pink dip-dye hair, yes one hair trend I would love to see the back off, I love this cover as Charlotte really does ooze cool in her candy floss pink tips.

So what do you think of the 5’7″ model – is she the next Kate Moss?

Django Unchained: Kerry Washington In Louis Vuitton

kerry washington louis vuit Django Unchained: Kerry Washington In Louis Vuitton %tag

Who: Actress Kerry Washington

Where: At the photocall for her latest movie Django Unchained in Berlin, Germany

Wearing: A white and ivory chequered calf-length Louis Vuitton dress from the spring/summer 2013 collection, styled with a white Louis Vuitton bow headband, a tiny Vince Camuto clutch and white Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: I wasn’t sure when I first saw Louis Vuitton’s spring/summer 2013 collection, then I went to see the pieces up-close at their press day and I don’t know what happen I fell in love with the chequered effect, and this dress really stood out.

I have been waiting to see it on the red carpet as I wondered if the styling would translate and I am so pleased to say it does and that is all down to Kerry Washington really embracing the calf-length and that adorable bow headband.

There is a fresh feel about Kerry in this look that I love and I am also adoring her doll-like Vince Camuto clutch – the most darling bag I have ever seen on the red carpet, which works perfectly with the large chequered print.

I am sure this look will be a little like Marmite for some but I am loving it – what do you think of Kerry’s latest look?

LA confidential ewan cover Friday Eye Candy: Ewan McGregor Looking Dapper For LA Confidential %tag

This week on Eye Candy I have chosen Ewan McGregor, who granted isn’t known for his hunk status, but after seeing this editorial shot by Art Streiber for LA Confidential magazine I think a few opinions will be changed.

Looking very dapper on the cover in a classic Louis Vuitton trench coat, I love the styling for the whole shoot, Evan really looks hot in looks by Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, and Ermenegildo Zegna.

So anyone else looking at Ewan in a different light? He looks seriously hot!!!

A Closer Look: Louis Vuitton – Spring/Summer 2013

SS13 Louis Vuitton 17 A Closer Look: Louis Vuitton   Spring/Summer 2013 %tag

I am in the midst of press day season at the moment, and one of my early highlights so far has to be checking out the Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2013 collection in their London showroom. I always love seeing catwalk collections up-close, especially when they are such a big accessories brand like Louis Vuitton as walking through the collection I got to mentally pick out all the handbags I would love to add to my collection.

It seems that spring/summer 2013 is going to be all about the tiny handbag, a step towards elegance and a nod to the retro, which I love, but I am also scared as it means I have to give up on my divine oversized handbags that seem to be able to hold everything.

The Louis Vuitton ready-to-wear explores symmetry and mirrors and has a touch of the 60s about it, I love the chess-board effect, whether it was in black or the custard yellow mixed with white, the clothes really stand out.

I left the press day with an enormous mental wish-list – from the oversized sunglasses to the orange envelope handbag to the super cute sequinned flamingo t-shirt, oh and a Louis Vuitton scarf, or two!!!

What are you loving from the spring/summer 2013 Louis Vuitton collection?

Primetime Emmy Awards: The Trends – Citrus Hues, A Sea Of Blue, and Shades Of Grey

trend1 Primetime Emmy Awards: The Trends   Citrus Hues, A Sea Of Blue, and Shades Of Grey %tagI am a lover of the red carpet, I love seeing my favourite actresses, singers, and TV personalities looking all glamorous in designer couture gowns, and last night I was blown away by the standard of the Primetime Emmy Awards.

As well as spotting which designers they are wearing I also like to see the trends taking form, last award season there was a lot of open backs, and this Emmy Awards was all about a hint of colour, the various shades of blue and grey, with a little oxblood and floral mixed in for good measure.

I have already blogged some of my best dressed looks from January Jones’ statement Zac Posen gown to  Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier, to the shimmering beauty that was Lucy Liu in Versace, and the bombshell that is Sofia Vegara.

But with so many good looks I thought it best to do a trend post – so here are some more of my favourites.

Citrus Hues:

Normally there is a lot of black on award ceremony red carpet, that isn’t to say there wasn’t any last night – did you see January Jones, but what I was pleased about was all the citrus hues – ranging from vibrant oranges to canary yellow – maybe it was the California heat but the red carpet was sizzling.

Leading the orange pack was definitely Monique Lhuiller she dressed Ginnifer Goodwin in an orange floral embroidered beauty and Padma Lakshmi looked radiant in her strapless trumpet gown – the colour was perfection on her.

Then there was Leslie Mann in Naeem Khan, I love the contrast of the marigold coloured skirt with the embroidered ivory halter-neck bodice – seriously beautiful.

Finishing up the orange hues is Lindsay Pulsipher in Bibhu Mohapatra – everything about the colour to the Grecian styling of her hairstyle this is a gorgeous look.

Yellow was another key trend, which I was a little on the fence with as I am not sure about yellow on the red carpet, but I loved Julianne Moore’s canary yellow Christian Dior Couture gown – the full silk skirt looks stunning on her.

A pregnant and Emmy award-winning Claire Danes went for Lanvin, she said “it’s very bump friendly”, which is very true the draping was flattering and the colour really complemented her skin-tone.

But my favourite of the yellow gowns had to be ‘New Girl’ star Hannah Simone in a sunny yellow custom one-shoulder Emilio Pucci gown. I love the shade, I love the sexy thigh-high split, and the Lorraine Schwartz leaf earrings. One thing I can’t cope with though is her visible tan marks!!!

A Sea of Blue:

The blue tones ranged from aqua to midnight blue and each really stood out on the red carpet. Leading the pack were the darker shades, it is hard to choose my favourite but the two that really stood out were Sarah Paulson in Reem Acra, the embroidery was exquisite, and I adored the Louis Vuitton gown that British actress Michelle Dockery wore, it was simple but elegant.

I also added in Hayden Panettiere into the mix, I have to be honest I kind of like the dress the gold-embroidered Marchesa gown with blue tulle overlay works well, but I worry that it is a little too mature for her.

The aqua and pale blue hues were a little more playful and sexy. From the neck down I adored Julianne Hough’s Georges Hobeika Couture, I just don’t understand what she did with her hair. Heidi Klum showed off her sexy side in in Alexandre Vauthier - showing Angelina Jolie how to work a thigh-high slit.

But the gown that caught my attention had to be Zooey Deschanel’s princess gown designed by Reem Acra, it was whimsical, quirky and cute and she looked amazing, but why in all the pictures is she not smiling???

Shades Of Grey:

There is always something nice about grey and silver tones on the red carpet, always makes me think of Old-Hollywood glamour, and there were some elegant gowns last night.

Emily VanCamp from my new favourite show Revenge looked gorgeous in a delicate pleated J. Mendel gown, I adore the dove grey shade and the sheer bodice. But what makes this outfit has to be her bow tie Van Cleef bracelet – the best jewellery of the night!!!

With grey comes shimmery silvers and Lucy Lui in Versace and Kerry Washington in Vivienne Westwood Couture both dazzled at the Emmy’s, Kerry’s gown just looked effortless and sexy. I am going to call it tie between these two.

There were a number of Vivienne Westwood Couture gowns on the red carpet last night, with Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt leading the charge in this incredible corseted gown, which had a belt to nip in her tiny waist, and a split to add a touch of sexy – this dress had it all!

But my favourite shade of grey goes to Homeland’s actress Morena Baccarin who wore a sexy Basil Soda gown with a plunging neckline. I love the daring flash of cleavage, hey if you looked like Morena wouldn’t you flash them, and the David Webb drop earrings – this is a statement gown that totally floored me I love it!!!
