Cover Loving: Nina Dobrev In Dior For Cosmopolitan


There have been some different poses on the September issues – there was Kate Perry doing the Flamingo for ELLE UK, the criss-cross legs and arms craziness of Jennifer Aniston for US Glamour, and then a pose I think Tyra Banks would be impressed with – the lovely Nina Dobrev doing the ‘oops my shoe just came off’ on the cover of US Cosmopolitan.

The Vampire Diaries star looks absolutely incredible on the cover in a gorgeous houndstooth Dior dress teamed with matching Valentino heels – this awkward pose isn’t easy to pull off but she really does it with ease while keeping her face and expression looking amazing. Plus I don’t normally care so much about the cover lines, but I do love how Cosmo wrapped them perfectly to show off her flawless figure.

I think I just love how Cosmo this cover is!!!


Shot by Matthias Vriens-McGrath and styled by Aya Kanai, the cover story continues to impress inside with a fashion editorial featuring looks from Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, more Valentino, and that Gucci dress that everyone can’t get enough of – we’ve seen Jennifer Lopez in it, Olivia Wilde and Chloë Moretz.

My favourite look though has to be this gorgeous Michael Kors with the orange skirt teamed with those hot laced-up boots in front of such a picturesque background – plus her hair, braided to the side is just divine.

Are you a fan of Nina Dobrev’s debut Cosmo cover?

Oscars 2013: Amy Adams In Oscar de la Renta

Oscars-amy-adamsWho: Nominee Amy Adams

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

Wearing: A strapless pale blue Oscar de la Renta gown with full ruffled skirt, teamed with a diamond bracelet and drop earrings

Verdict: I do love a Princess moment, as you know, and this is Amy Adams. It is a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown, I love the never-ending ruffle tiers, I adore the sweetheart neckline, I love the drama of the huge train, I just wish that Amy wasn’t so afraid of colour.

The icy blue is nice, it works against her skintone and her auburn hair, I just would have like to have seen her embrace a little more colour. I am just being picky – as a bright shade would have made this one of my best dressed looks of the night.

But come if you can’t go for an over the top gown like this at the Oscars when can you!!!

SAG Awards: Jennifer Garner Sparkles In Oscar de la Renta


Who: Jennifer Garner

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless gold sequinned Oscar de la Renta gown from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with gold David Webb jewellery

Verdict: I love, love, love it when Jennifer Garner gets all glammed up, she really does know how to work the red carpet at major award ceremonies and this gown is one of my favourite from last night’s SAG Awards.

I always love seeing gold sparkles on the red carpet, and I love it even more when it is full on glam like this structured OdlR gown.

I also love the contrast of her soft wavy hair-do with the structured, intricately embroidered gown, totally worked for me, and I am so glad that she kept her jewellery minimal this gown didn’t need anything else really to make it shine.

Do you like Jennifer’s glam look?

Golden Globes 2013: Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta


Who: Zooey Deschanel

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A strapless red Oscar de la Renta gown featuring a sweetheart neckline and voluminous skirt from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with a matching pearl necklace and bracelet, and a film-inspired manicure

Verdict: I always find Zooey adorable on the red carpet and tonight’s Golden Globes look is no different. I love the 1950’s vibe of this gorgeous gown as well as the vibrant colour, but what makes this look has to be the addition of the pearls – I do love a bit of Granny chic!!!

I also love Zooey’s nails – featuring a movie camera and film strip – she always seems to bring her personality to the red carpet.

This is a great look – do you agree?zooey-deschanel-nails

Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Alba In Oscar de la Renta

Jessica Alba, Golden Globes, Oscar de la Renta, odlr, harry winston

Who: Jessica Alba

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A strapless melon silk-faille Oscar de la Renta gown featuring a trumpet skirt, sweetheart neckline from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo Kalpa platform sandals, a Roger Vivier clutch and an incredible Harry Winston diamond necklace

Verdict: Melon is an interesting description to this dress I would go for coral but hey who am I to argue with Oscar de la Renta. This gown is gorgeous, I love the neckline, the drama of the trumpet skirt and train, and even the colour – it kind of fitting into the nude/light pink trend that swept the Golden Globes red carpet.

But come on surely all eyes are on her neck and that amazing Harry Winston necklace, which according to the press release is valued at $5.8 million – that is serious bling – I bet she has a bodyguard or two keeping an eye on that beauty!!!

The only thing I am not loving has to be that furry clutch – for me it is a little unnecessary – but hey such a tiny thing as everything else is fab including her gorgeous old-Hollywood locks.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Anne Hathaway In Oscar de la Renta

Who: Anne Hathaway,  winner of the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in Les Miserables

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

Wearing: A Platine spiral bugle bead Oscar de la Renta gown, teamed with diamond stud earrings and bracelet

Verdict: At first glance I wasn’t sure whether I liked this gown on Anne or not, I am not saying it doesn’t look incredible on her, the slinky silhouette suits her, it just didn’t wow me like I hoped.

Sparkles on the red carpet normally gets my vote but when I look at this gown all I can think is that this is something Nicole Kidman would wear or very similar to something she has worn. Again not a bad thing, I am just a little underwhelmed I think – here’s hoping for more at the weekend.

What I did adore though is her flawless make-up, that shade of lippy is divine, and I like her pixie crop all styled.

Is it just me who is a little bored by this look?

Shop Her Style: Fancy Buying Emily Blunts SAG Gown?

Did you swoon over Emily Blunt’s Oscar de la Renta gown that she worn to the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards at the weekend? Well if you have close to £4k then this gorgeous one-shoulder green silk-chiffon gown could be yours.

It definitely is a head-turner, with its vibrant shade, form-flattering silhouette, gorgeous asymmetric draped bodice, and I love the drama and elegance of its thigh-high split.

Still interested in buying? Well for £3,725 it could be yours from Net-a-Porter.com. I think it would make a great alternative wedding gown – who says the bride has to wear white!!!
