Oscars 2015: Kerry Washington In Miu Miu

Who: Kerry Washington 

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A strapless, cream Miu Miu gown, featuring embroidered floral detailing to the peplum and a textured skirt, teamed with Fred Leighton earrings

Verdict: The Scandal actress has been on a red carpet roll lately and I think this is another great look, not a wow moment, maybe not even an Oscar worthy gown, nevertheless I still think she looks beautiful. 

It is just subtle, sweet and elegant, whereas I think this was a great opportunity for her to opt for something more dramatic and colourful, I really wanted her to make a statement, but saying that there was a lot of white and nude hues on the red carpet so she was certainly on-trend. 

My favourite thing about her look has to be her flawless hair and make-up, her glamsquad always make her look so beautiful.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Lupita Nyong’o Changes Into Miu Miu

VF-Miumiu-LupitaWho: Lupita Nyong’o

Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014 in West Hollywood, California

Wearing: A seafoam green Miu Miu belted silk gown with green beaded fringe along the neckline, teamed with matching peep-toe heels and the same Fred Leighton headband from the main event, oh and carrying her Oscar statue

Verdict: I loved the pale blue Prada gown and it was perfect for Lupita to float up the stairs to collect her Best Supporting Actress Oscar, but this cute column gown was the fun party frock that the Vanity Fair party needs and kind of reminds me of the change Jennifer Lawrence made last year in its silhouette.

I love the green beading on the bodice, it really does make this dress shine, and I love that she kept that cute Fred Leighton headband on – it was such a hit on the Oscars red carpet.

Which look do you prefer – her blue Prada gown or this Miu Miu beauty?

Cover Loving: Allison Williams For InStyle


So is this cover loving or just coat loving – I am in love with this gorgeous yellow and blue Miu Miu coat that Girls star Allison Williams is wearing on the February cover of InStyle UK.

I am a little obsessed with pastels, so I am a little pleased that it is set to be one of spring’s hottest trends and the styling of this cover and accompanying shoot is perfection. I have a few issues with that pose and positioning of her hand, but I can let that all go for this incredible coat.

What I also love about this cover, other than the fab coat, have I said that already, is that it is nice to see a covered-up cover for February – as yes it is still bloody cold and January is just too early to be handling summery covers.

Inside the editorial is just as gorgeous as the cover, Allison gets all ladylike modelling must-have spring pieces from Burberry, Michael Kors and Isabel Marant – I didn’t think I wanted a lilac coat until I saw this one below!!!

Are you a fan of this two-tone Miu Miu beauty?

Cover Loving: Katy Perry Graces ELLE UK’s September Issue


I am a big fan of Katy Perry, more so now that I know that she counts Minnie Mouse as one of her style icons, and I was excited that she was to grace the September issue of ELLE UK - but then I saw the newsstand cover and I was a little underwhelmed, mainly because of the flamingo pose.

Don’t get me wrong, Katy looks amazing in a checked Dolce & Gabbana peplum top with matching shorts, and I understand that those Christian Louboutin boots are hot – but come on that pose really is more of an editorial shot than a cover pose for me.

I prefer the simplicity of the subscriber cover, which really shows off Katy’s beauty and her incredible eyes. Granted this cover does remind me a little of Emma Stone’s Vogue UK cover from last year – but I think Katy’s makes more of an impact as it is all about her face.

Shot by Mariano Vivanco, the accompanying editorial is just as strong with Katy wearing looks from Prada, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton and Alexander Wang’s autumn/winter 2013 collections.

The issue hits newsstands on Wednesday, July 31 and I can’t wait for my subscriber copy to drop through the letterbox.

Which cover do you prefer – the subscribers or the newsstand?

Oscars 2013: Kerry Washington In Miu Miu

Oscars-kerry-washingtonWho: Kerry Washington

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

Wearing: A coral Miu Miu gown with a nude tulle bustier embellished with paillettes and crystals, accessorised with a Prada clutch, a Fred Leighton ring, Chopard earrings, and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: This custom-made Miu Miu gown literally sparkled on the red carpet and stood out as until Kerry Washington had arrived everyone was in a nude, pale colour and this coral number really did cheer me up.

This dress is cute, I love the bow detailing, I love the sparkles of the embellished bodice, and I love the sweet colour – I also love the colour-matching accessories of the clutch and heels.

The only thing I am missing are her bangs that she had yesterday at the Spirit Awards.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Emily Blunt In Miu Miu

Who: Emily Blunt, who lost out to Jennifer Lawrence in the Best Actress in an Action Film category

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

Wearing: A white Miu Miu dress that fell at the ankles featuring a crystal-embellished neckline and cross-back straps, teamed with a gold box clutch and Prada metallic heels

Verdict: Known for her simple-yet-stunning looks on the red carpet, do you remember that vibrant Alexander McQueen last year, well this another gorgeous dress that is made into a show-stopping number as soon as you see the back, like with Jessica Chastain’s Prada gown.

I love that this dress fell at her ankle as it added a different dimension to the gown and stood out on the red carpet, plus it totally worked perfectly with her Old Hollywood glamour with her striking lippy and pin curls.

Like the dress Emily is simply gorgeous.

Giffoni Film Festival: Dianna Agron In Prada and Glittery Miu Miu Shades

Who: Glee star Dianna Agron

Where: At the 2012 Giffoni Film Festival in Giffoni Valle Piana, Italy

Wearing: A printed Prada dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, Miu Miu Noir glittery sunglasses, and thong flats with red stones finished off her look

Verdict: So, now I know why Miss Dianna wasn’t at the Teen Choice Awards as she was enjoying the sunshine in Italy. At first glance I was worried that it was a little too relaxed for a film festival, I was thinking about the glamour of say Cannes, but I think she actually pulled this cute dress off really well – the bold print was a great touch.

But what draws my attention the most with this look has to be those incredible red glittery cat-eye shades, I seriously swooned when I saw them on her. I am a sunglasses addict and I am in love with these beauties.

What makes this even more perfect has to be the fact that they available on Net-a-Porter, so if you want to recreate Dianna’s look during our mini heatwave you can snap them up, granted they are £225, tad pricey, but just think how pretty they will look!!! Pairing with a bold printed dress is optional – but it works rather well.

Do you love Dianna’s look or do you wish she had gone a more glam? And tell me what you think of the Miu Miu shades – will you be snapping them up?
