Wedding Inspiration: Olivia Palermo Weds In Carolina Herrera

Olivia palermo wedding Wedding Inspiration: Olivia Palermo Weds In Carolina Herrera %tag

Ever since Olivia Palermo and her long-term model boyfriend Johannes Huebl announced their engagement with the most beautiful Instagram video from a tropical location it was kind of a given that their actual wedding day would just be as perfect.

One of my favourite fashionistas gave a few hints in her Brides cover story that she would be wearing something a little different for her big day, but I don’t think many would have predicted that she would wear shorts, but then again I think only Olivia could get away with wearing shorts on her wedding day.

The gorgeous bride look incredible in a custom Carolina Herrera ensemble – a simple cream cashmere jumper teamed with white shorts and a full tulle skirt overlay that featured a high slit in the front and beautiful floral detailing along the hem.

Olivia shared details of her bridal look on her website, along with the low-down on the actual wedding itself, described as “intimate” and shared with only a handful of the bride and grooms close friends and family surrounded by “ivy and blossoming flowers” in a quiet park in Bedford, New York. It sounds heavenly.

Back to the wedding dress, or should I say wedding ensemble, I really love it and it is perfect for an intimate, elopement-style wedding and I am sure many people will be saying to themselves that it is very Carrie Bradshaw, especially with her something blue being a pair of Manolo Blahniks, which really does complete the look.

I just hope that my wedding in New York in November looks just as perfect. Huge congratulations to Olivia and Johannes it really did look like the most stylist wedding ever.

What do you think of Olivia’s unique wedding look?

Begin Again Promo: Keira Knightley In Prada

Keira Knightley prada Begin Again Promo: Keira Knightley In Prada %tag

Who: Keira Knightley

Where: On the New York streets heading into a press conference for her new film, Begin Again

Wearing: Head-to-toe Prada in a pleated light-blue silk dress, teamed with a stone-encrusted light-blue satin clutch and silver calf shoes. Finishing off her look with very cool sunglasses and chic chignon up-do.

Verdict: There is always a grace about Keira that I love and this look is so her – everything from the icy blue colour to the pleated skirt and the bedazzled clutch. This is a great daytime look and I can imagine a lot of people using this as inspiration for wedding outfits this summer.

I love everything about this love, the pleated detailing, the collar, the T-shirt style sleeves and the colour, I even love her choice of clutch and sunglasses, both are just so much fun, I am just not sure about the heels. I don’t mind them being silver, I actually like that, I just think a strappy shoe would have worked a little better.

Do you rate Keira’s head-to-toe Prada look?

NYC Ballet Gala: Amber Valletta Wearing Prabal Gurung

Amber valletta Prabal Gurung NYC Ballet Gala: Amber Valletta Wearing Prabal Gurung %tag

Who: Amber Valletta

Where: At New York City Ballet 2013 Fall Gala in NYC

Wearing: A pink Prabal Gurung gown featuring a front thigh-high split, black strap detailing and cut-outs to the side from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with black  heels featuring heavy buckle straps and a black clutch

Verdict: I love everything about this look from Revenge actress Amber Valletta. The colour, the sexy split and cut-outs, and the contrasting black detailing – this is one incredible dress.

But the love doesn’t stop at the dress, the styling of how this look has been put together is spot on for me. Those chunky buckle strapped heels are amazing, they work perfectly with the black contrasting detailing of the dress and the front-split.

Then there is her hair and make-up – I love that she went with her hair up and slicked back with barely-there make-up – the harsh vibe really acts as a contrast to the sexy dress. The only thing I might have added is a pop of colour to her lips – but that is just me nitpicking.

Do you like Amber Valletta’s look?

Versace SoHo Boutique: Melissa George In Versace

Versace Melissa George Versace SoHo Boutique: Melissa George In Versace %tagWho: Former Home & Away and Alias star Melissa George

Where: At a cocktail party hosted by Donatella Versace for the opening of the new Versace SoHo boutique in New York

Wearing: A black Versace skirt with cross details paired with a black knit top, a black Versace trench coat, velvet Versace heels, gold accessories and a cute black studded clutch

Verdict: Wow, Melissa George is looking stunning here in head-to-toe Versace. I love everything about this moody look – but the stand-out piece has to be the trench coat draped over her shoulders – seriously hot!!!

Who would have thought that the former Aussie soap star could pull off a fierce rock chick vibe? I have to be honest I am blown away by her look – she was definitely my best dressed out of the stellar celeb crowd that included models galore *see below*, as well as Alexa Chung, Jennifer Hudson, and Helena Mattsson.

Of course it couldn’t be a Versace party without a host of models – there were a lot from Tali Lennox to Leigh Lezark, and even one of the original supermodels Linda Evangelista was in the house, but my three favourite model looks has to go to Doutzen Kroes, Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova.

Doutzen wore a gorgeous black Versace coat with flared skirt covered entirely in Swarovski crystals from the autumn/winter 2012 collection; Coco went for the Versace’s little black dress with metallic detailing also from the autumn/winter 2012 collection; and Karolina looked divine in a black leather Versace bomber jacket with intricate floral detailing teamed with the matching pencil skirt.

Do you rate Melissa’s look? And which model gets your vote?

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Party: SJP, Mena Suvari and Selma Blair

MMMforHM Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Party: SJP, Mena Suvari and Selma Blair %tagLast night in New York, H&M celebrated its latest designer collaboration with avant garde label, Maison Martin Margiela, and they brought out some of the brand’s celebrity fans to model the collection on the red carpet.

This party looked incredible, not only was the guest list pretty special with everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Kanye West, Julianne Moore, and Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford in attendance, but the venue, a nine-floor derelict, historical building in New York’s financial district looked to-die-for and the perfect setting for a very avant-garde party complete with art installations, dance performances and all housed around a glass-roofed atrium – oh how I wish I had been there!!!

As much as I loved Sarah Jessica Parker’s layered look, that oversized jacket is divine, my two best dressed of the night had to be Mena Suvari and Selma Blair. Both of course were wearing head-to-toe Maison Martin Margiela for H&M, and both looks came to under £300 – which for a red carpet event is amazing.

Probably the most controversial of looks was Mena Suvari, this body with an integrated bra is going to be a little like Marmite for some, you will either love it or hate it, and I absolutely love that Mena took it on last night. But what I love most about this look has to be that candy clutch – and at £34.99 this is so going to be mine!!!

Mena’s look comes to a grand total of £274.96 – don’t believe me? Well, here is a break down: body with integrated bra – £29.99; candy clutch, £34.99; invisible wedge pumps, £149.99; and hitched up skirt £59.99.

Wearing one of my favourite looks from the collection, Selma Blair looked incredible wearing the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M horizontally worn dress. I love her tea-pot pose in this dress – the perfectly way to show off the draping, and I adore her invisible wedge pumps – this is one seriously hot look which is finished off nicely with her intricate plaited up-do.

Gets Selma’s look on November 15, when the collection launches for just £249.98 – her horizontally worn dress is £99.99 and her black invisible wedge pumps are £149.99. Hot, Hot, Hot!!!

So who was your best dressed at the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M bash? Want to see more piccies of the red carpet – then head on over to my Facebook page.

New York City Ballet: Anne Hathaway In Valentino

wpid Photo 21 Sep 2012 2333 New York City Ballet: Anne Hathaway In Valentino %tag

Who: Anne Hathaway

Where: At the opening of the New York City Ballet Fall Gala held at the Lincoln Center

Wearing: A green floral print Valentino gown with long sleeves from the autumn/winter 2012 couture collection, made from chiffon and silk and took more than 900 hours to make. Anne teamed her gown with a Roger Vivier clutch and her cute pixie crop.

Verdict: The more I see Anne with her pixie crop, the more I like it, and her hair and make-up look flawless with this exquisite Valentino gown. Everything from the colour, to the embroidery and sheer detailing, this is a divine dress that looks incredible on Anne.

I really don't think I have seen Anne look this good in ages, there is an effortlessness about her in this gown that is just pure perfection.

Do you rate Anne's romantic Valentino gown?

NYC Ballet: Natalie Portman Shines In Dior

DiorNataliePortman NYC Ballet: Natalie Portman Shines In Dior %tag

Who: Natalie Portman

Where: At the New York City Ballet’s 2012 Spring Gala at the Lincoln Center in New York City

Wearing: A navy tiered silk chiffon Dior gown with black ribbon detail inspired by the spring/summer 1973 Dior Haute Collection, teamed with a matching clutch

Verdict: I missed Natalie Portman at the Met Gala earlier this week, if she was there I haven’t seem any images, but I was sure she would attend in Dior, so her attending the ballet really did make up for it.

What I love about this gown other than the colour, which is truly divine, has to be that dramatic neckline. I love the halter ribbon tie finished off with a bow, that matches perfectly with a ribbon tie to the waist, simply in its design but so gorgeous and an elegant touch that was perfect for the ballet. I am so pleased that she finished her look with a tousled up-do as really does allow the neckline to shine.
