Met Gala 2012: All About The Prada Beauties

PradaDiane Met Gala 2012: All About The Prada Beauties %tag

When I found out that this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition would feature Prada I was excited to see who Miuccia Prada would dress for the Met Gala and she really didn’t disappoint. In her party, to celebrate the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, was the gorgeous Diane Kruger, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Amber Valetta, Anna Wintour, Carey Mulligan, Eva Mendes, Kate Bosworth, Linda Evangelista, Mia Wasikowska, Grace Coddington, Milla Jovovich, and model Anne V.

It was hard to choose between Diane, Gwyneth, and Carey for my best dressed Prada beauty, but my obsession with Diane meant that she came out on top, closey followed by a very foxy Gwyneth.

Diane was once again flawless in her loose-fitted purple layered crepe silk chiffon Prada gown, which was finished off with a gorgeous ostrich feathered hemline. I loved that she paired her look with a Barbie pink embellished clutch, maybe an ode to Schiaparelli who loved to use shocking pink in her collections.

The best thing about Diane is you never know what she is going to wear as she really can work it all *yes I love her a little too much!!!*.

Just for her paillette-embroidered patch pockets, Gwyneth nearly took top spot in the Prada beauties, as she worked a gorgeous short steel blue halter neck dress, showing off her amazing legs. Finishing off her look were embellished Prada peep-toe heels, hooped earrings, and an exquisite centre-parted bun.

Ever since Gwyneth wore Tom Ford to the Oscars I have been super excited to see what she will wear next and last night she rocked this sexy Prada gown to the max. I am loving her confidence lately. Simply gorgeous.

It’s a tough list when this incredible two-tone gold and silver halter made of shiny paillettes that co-chairwoman Carey Mulligan wore only makes third spot, but this is testament to the exquisite designs from Prada, each one completely different and each one as fabulous as the next.

This is the best I have ever seen Carey, married life obviously agrees with her as she was glowing last night on the red carpet.

Coming in fourth and five, respectively, are Eva Mendes and Mia Wasikowska. Eva’s tangerine orange gown complements her skintone brilliantly, and I love the peplum detailing as well as the embellishments to the bodice, she really is stunning.

Mia gets in my top five ahead of Kate Bosworth in that amazing ostrich feathered mini-dress mainly because I loved the embellished collar and waist detailing of Mia’s Prada dress, as well as the rich raspberry colour.

What do you think of my top five Prada beauties? Should I have included Kate Bosworth, Anna Wintour, Milla Jovovich, Jessica Biel, or Linda Evangelista??? Leave me a comment below.

Miu Miu Front Row: Katy Perry Head-to-Toe In Prada

KatyPerryPrada Miu Miu Front Row: Katy Perry Head to Toe In Prada %tag

Who: Katy Perry

Where: At the Miu Miu autumn/winter 2012 catwalk show in Paris

Wearing: Head-to-toe Prada in a giada raso coat, worn over a flames-motif printed pink chiffon pleated dress, and paired with the Saffiano lux Pyramide bag with studs and patent leather flame sandals

Verdict: I love everything about Katy Perry’s look from the neck down, seriously her choice of quirky accessories is amazing – I am in love with that studded bag as well as the incredible flame heels. But what I am not loving is her hair, I get it so she is wearing blue so she has to pair her hair, but come on you seriously don’t!!!

I am glad that Katy has immersed herself in Paris Fashion Week and seems to be getting over her split from Russell Brand but I would also love to see a new hair-do.

MiuMiuFrontRow Miu Miu Front Row: Katy Perry Head to Toe In Prada %tag

Miu Miu had one of the most stylish front rows at Paris Fashion Week for me including Harry Potter’s Bonnie Wright, singer Florrie Arnold, and Mia Wasikowska, as well as Kate Mara, Corrine Bailey Rae, and Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery, but my favourite looks are these from Bonnie, Florrie and Mia all in Miu Miu looks.

Bonnie is stunning in this black cady sleeveless top and alluminio grey plissé lace skirt from the Miu Miu spring/summer 2012 collection, but what caught my eye on her look had to be the Miu Miu yellow silk jewel bag – pops nicely against the lace skirt.

Florrie, who I have to admit I don’t know that much about really impressed me in these Miu Miu pink daisy print cady pants, they look good with the white caplet and cotton shirt. But again her accessories floored me with gorgeous pink madras bag – HOT!!!

Last but not least is Miu Miu’s current face Mia Wasikowska in a reserved but chic look wearing Miu Miu autumn/winter 2012 in a bi-colour organzino dress with orchidea pink top and black cady armuré flared skirt. The only thing I would change from this demure look would have been the nude patent leather pumps, I just think a vibrant pink or clashing colour would have worked perfectly.

Who: Actress Mia Wasikowska

Where: At the New York premiere of Jane Eyre

Where: A black a-line cocktail dress, with floral appliqués and sequin embellishments, from the Elie Saab Haute Couture spring/summer 2011 collection, teamed with black peep-toe heels

Verdict: What a stunning dress, the texture of the floral appliques is completely exquiste, and Mia looks amazing in it.

I love everything about this look, from the dress failing just-below-the-knee, to her having her hair up, to the gorgeous peep-toe heels. This outfit is simply chic.

Who: Mia Wasikowska

Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar party in West Hollywood

Wearing: A black guipure lace Stella McCartney dress from the pre-fall 2011 collection, teamed with black peep-toe platforms

Verdict: The detailing on this little black dress is exquisite, and I love the way the full-skirted silhouette kicks out. It is a quirky dress and Mia is perfect for it. Gets my vote for the best LBD of the night.

The climax of London Fashion Week last year was Burberry Prosum’s return to the city and this season was no different, at 4pm (well 20 mins late), London stopped still. Yep even us folk at work!!

 

This autumn/winter 2010 womenswear collection seems to be not only about the clothes, but the front row celebrities, the global live-streaming and the 3D first fashion shows to (selected) audiences in New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Dubai.

Not as though they needed the extra buzz – the pap-fest which is their front row does enough of that. This season we had Bafta-winning actress Carey Mulligan, Kate Hudson, the Olsen twins, The City’s Olivia Palermo, The Kooks (yep the band), Claire Danes, Jared Leto (it was like a My So Called Life reunion!!), Mia Wasikowska – the star of Alice in Wonderland, and Carolina Herrera. What a turn out!!

Randomly they even had Radio 1 DJ, Greg James, interviewing select stars before the show, The Kooks went fine – but I got the feeling Kate Hudson was thinking who the hell is this lad!!

The show itself was military-themed, with the 53-piece collection described as a “salute to the services”, with the shearling aviator jackets and the trench coats the main attraction.

I love the updated sheepskin-lined flying jackets, with my favourite being the chocolate leather one, classic and elegant but being cropped in at the waist gave it sex appeal. It wasn’t all about the airforce though as there were some peacoats for the Navy boys and one my favourite coats was the navy blue one with zippers at the waist.

Overall this show was a spectacle of outerwear glamour with the sexy styling of thigh-high boots teamed with a warm autumn palette of ruffled, bandage and bodycon dresses in raspberry and gold.

Then there were the handbags – I just couldn’t keep my eye of these bucket or is it basket bags? Either way you could fit a hell of a lot in them and I want one!! First choice being the yellow one – divine!
