Shop Her Style: Nina Dobrev In Matthew Williamson


Who: Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev

Where: At the Entertainment Weekly Screen Actors Guild Awards pre-party held at the Chateau Marmont in California at the weekend

Wearing: A strapless colourful floral-print silk-chiffon Matthew Williamson gown featuring an internal boned bodice, pleated skirt, and crystal embellishments on the side waist panels from the pre-spring 2013 collection, teamed with an Elie Saab box clutch

Verdict: I love that Nina Dobrev is never afraid to make a statement on the red carpet and this is a bold floral print and she is wearing it well. I love the flattering cut to the maxi dress with the corset bodice and the flowing pleated skirt.

What makes this look for me is that Nina plays down the bold print with her flawless-barley-there make-up and no jewellery – she is letting the dress shine. I just love how effortless her red carpet looks are.

Shop Her Style: Love the look and want to snap up Nina’s dress? Well get out your credit card as this beauty is currently on Net-a-Porter for £1,695.

Africa Cats: Catherine Is The Peplum Princess

Who: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Where: At the UK Royal Premiere of African Cats at the BFI Southbank in London, England

Wearing: A grey knee-length Matthew Williamson dress from the pre-fall 2012 collection with three-quarter sleeves, a peplum waist, and turquoise and gold embellishments to the cuffs and neckline. Completing her look, Catherine wore simple matching heels and a clutch.

Verdict: With the fact that it has been raining for what seems like weeks now in London I wasn’t expecting a floor-length gown from Catherine, which is a shame as I love to see her glammed up, but this is one gorgeous dress.

I love everything from the colour to the waist peplum, but what shines for me on this dress has to be the modified neckline to include matching embellishments to go with the cuffs, totally makes this dress Royal worthy. The turquoise jewels against the grey is just a great combination, make the pastel grey look fresh rather than dull, which can sometimes happen with grey on the red carpet.

This is a great look from Catherine for me, do you like it?

WGSN Fashion Awards: Whitney Port and Coco Rocha

Who: Reality star-turned-fashion designer Whitney Port

Where: At the 2011 WGSN Fashion Awards in New York

Wearing: An electric blue Matthew Williamson gown with crystal accents and cut-out detailing to the sides and back, teamed with Monique Pean earrings, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and a Devi Kroell clutch

Verdict: I love the colour, I love the sparkles, and I adore the high ballerina bun. I still find it weird that being a fashion designer she never chooses to showcase her own designs, surely this would have been the perfect occasion for that. But failing all that I am so glad she went for British designer Matthew Williamson, as this is one amazing dress and looks absolutely stunning on her.

Who: Coco Rocha

Wearing: A floor-skimming blush Bibhu Mohapatra overlay gown with Faye lace shoulder harness and waist detail from the spring 2011 collection

Verdict: I don’t think Coco could look bad in anything, but having a gorgeous friend like Bibhu must help a lot in choosing the most perfect red carpet gown and this is a beauty. The blush colour really works with Coco’s new red hair, but for me this outfit is all about that striking shoulder harness it completely makes the dress for me.
