Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Alba In Oscar de la Renta

jessica alba odlr Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Alba In Oscar de la Renta %tag

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

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

Oscargown Shop Her Style: Fancy Buying Emily Blunts SAG Gown? %tag

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!!!

SAG Awards: Emily Blunt Goes Neon In OdlR

137920680 SAG Awards: Emily Blunt Goes Neon In OdlR %tag

Who: Actress Emily Blunt

Where: At The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A vibrant one-shouldered emerald Oscar de la Renta gown, which looked like it had been slightly modified from a dress that was seen on the Resort 2012 runway, teamed with a Swarovski clutch, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: I have to say that I don’t think anyone does green better than Oscar de la Renta, this gown is so striking and looks perfectly against her new dark brown hair. Brights were certainly a trend at this year’s SAG Awards but this was certainly one of my favourites – the neon hue worked really well on the red carpet. I also love that she added some sparkle to her outfit with that square clutch and that gorgeous gemstone cuff.

Ad Campaign: Oscar de la Renta Bridal 2012

OdlR Wedding Ad Campaign: Oscar de la Renta Bridal 2012 %tag

I know I am verging on becoming a bridezilla, without actually being engaged or planning a wedding, but I just could resist sharing this gorgeous image from the Oscar de la Renta Bridal campaign for 2012.

I adore OdlR, from the runway to the red carpet, and if I could afford any dress I wanted for my big day *one day it will happen* then it would definitely be between Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta. I love this gorgeous silk organza ruched sweetheart bodice gown in soft pink mainly because of the exquisite piped organza cascading ruffle skirt – it is jaw-droppingly stunning!

This campaign shot is simply divine, the dress works perfectly against the blossom, and I know that Kim Kardashian is going Vera for her big day this weekend but she would have looked stunning in this gown.

Video Loving: Want To Make An OdlR Paper Hat?

I do love Oscar de la Renta, always full of drama and glamour, and most of all the catwalk shows always display such great story telling and creativity.

For the Resort 2o12 presentation, OdlR was full of Picasso references with prints inspired by early 20th century Cubism, and to compliment the geometry and lines were these quirky paper hats. Well now you can make your own with this adorable video. Granted it is speeded up, there is a lot of detail, but you get the idea and really want to give it a go.

I kind of wish they’d showed us how to do the pirate hat – always comes in handle for fancy dress parties!!!

Cannes 2011: Fan Bing Bing My Best Dressed

243318 342788174998 5913929 Cannes 2011: Fan Bing Bing My Best Dressed %tag

Already this Cannes Film Festival Fan Bing Bing has impressed me with her outfits. I loved the beauty of her traditional robe inspired dress for the opening ceremony, and I adored the ombre Atelier Versace gown worn to The Artist premiere. I really didn’t think it could get much better than that, but Fan Bing Bing really has pulled out the best show-stopping of the festival for me.

Above Fan is wearing a gorgeous lilac Elie Saab haute couture gown from the spring 2011 collection to  The Marche Du Film China Night press conference. This dress reminds me of the one that Mila Kunis wore to the Oscars, but she really does pull it off with more elegance and grace.

This Oscar de la Renta gown, that Fan wore to The Tree of Life premiere is something that I wouldn’t have expected her to wear. Don’t get me wrong I love this lime green gown from the spring/summer 2011 collection, its elegant and sophisticated with its square neckline and full gathered skirt, but it just not my favourite of the looks that I have seen her in.

Trust the amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala to bring out my favourite look from Fan Bing Bing. This vibrant strapless pink silk gazar vustier Louis Vuitton gown embroidered with silk bows it so striking. Don’t you think she looks very doll like in this dress? I love it so much.

Which look is your favourite?
