World War Z: Angelina Jolie Returns To The Red Carpet


Angelina Jolie has always been one of my favourite red carpet stars, granted she doesn’t always get it right, sometimes she takes the drama of the dress a little too far, I am talking about her right leg pose at the Oscars in 2012, but no matter what she keeps you wanting more.

Well this week, less than three weeks since she announced that she had undergone a preventive double mastectomy, Angie was back on the red carpet with Brad Pitt as he promotes his new movie World War Z, and since Sunday she has wowed London, Paris and Berlin.Angelina-brad-London-For London the star went black, simple and elegant in a gorgeous Saint Laurent gown. I just love how even when she is working an understated look she still looks fabulous and I love the sheer panelled bodice.

Keeping with black, Paris was another Saint Laurent look, this time a suit, I just love the contrast of the masculine tailoring with the feminine bow necktie on the blouse.

Angelina-parisAngelina-brad-paris Angelina-berlinMy favourite of her looks so far has to be this gorgeous custom strapless Ralph & Russo creation that she wore to the Berlin premiere, isn’t it divine. I am in love with the structured bodice and the rose gold accents to the waist – this is one exquisite look from Angelina and one of her best in a while.

I love everything about this look from the colour to the sculptural peplum, this is an elegant look paired with all the attitude an A-list actress should bring to the red carpet. I am so pleased that she kept her accessories minimal, pairing with just white heels and barley-there make-up.

Which look is your favourite?

Also, is it just me or have Angie and Brad coordinated hair styles? London – they both have their flowing locks down, followed by sleeked back and up in Paris, and back to long in Berlin.Angelina-brad-berlin Angelina-berlin-[Pics: courtesy of Paramount/Getty Images by David M Bennet, Pascal Le Segretain, & Andreas Rentz]

Jewellery: Dodo’s City Charm Bracelets


I make no secret of being a lover of charms, whether it is Thomas Sabo, Astley Clarke, Tiffany’s, or Pandora, I love that they can personalise a look, show off your personality and are perfect to capture a happy memory.

One jewellery charm brand I have had my eye on for a while has to be Italian brand, Dodo, as I love that each charm has a different meaning. For instance did you know their Penguin charm means ‘crazy in love’, that the Butterfly represents ‘I love my freedom’ and the Camel is ‘I’d walk across burning sand for you’, I also love that the D charm is ‘Dear D. You are a Devil, yet Delightful’!!!

As well as animals and letters, Dodo have also put together a series of ‘Souvenir’ charm bracelets for some of my favourite cities – London, Paris and New York, as well as Milan and Roma that are just gorgeous and I want them all!!!

Each of the Dodo loves charm bracelets costs £280, a little pricey, but I love that you get a Dodo bird charm, a love heart and the letters to spell out the city. I think it is hard to choose between London, Paris and New York.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Opening: Diane Kruger In Jason Wu

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At the Jaeger-LeCoultre Vendome Boutique opening in Paris

Wearing: A blackless navy lace Jason Wu jumpsuit with a black belt hot off the spring/summer 2013 catwalk, teamed with black Giuseppe Zanotti heels and of course a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – what a jumpsuit. I love everything about this look from the navy colour to the lace-luxe, to the gorgeous tailored silhouette of the jumpsuit, but most of all I adore her retro 40s-inspired hairdo and red lips.

I love how Diane can channel old-Hollywood glamour so perfectly, this look is another reason I seriously crush on this girl, she always seems to get it right on the red carpet and she makes it seem easy to rock a jumpsuit, which most of us over the size of 8 will no isn’t.

Jumpsuits have had a lot of attention this year on the red carpet, Kristen Stewart was just seen in a peek-a-boo lace jumpsuit by Zuhair Murad on her Twilight tour, Emma Stone wore a glitzy Elie Saab tuxedo-style jumpsuit to the London premiere of Spider-Man, Elizabeth Banks rocked a black jumpsuit to the MTV Movie Awards, and at the start of the year Rose Byrne put herself in the spotlight in a vintage white embroidered Elie Saab beauty with a deep v-neck at the SAG Awards. All amazing looks.

It doesn’t matter how many times I see a jumpsuit on the red carpet I adore it just the same, but I am putting this navy lace number by Jason Wu right to the top of my best dressed jumpsuits as I love how glamorous it looks on Diane.

What do you think of Diane’s retro curls and jumpsuit look?

Pre-Fall 2012: Elie Saab’s Balada A Paris Short Film

I love a fashion film, I love gorgeous sequinned gowns, add Paris and Elie Saab into the mix and I am seriously in love!!!

Known for chic evening gowns worthy only for the red carpet and major award shows Elie Saab has produced an elegant film, Balade a Paris to showcase the pre-fall 2012 collection, which has just hit stores.

This film walks in the footsteps of the Elie Saab woman taking in her endless elegance from day to night, and brings with it all the glamour and exquisite craftsmanship that Elie Saab is known for. What I adore about this short film has to be the close-ups of the dress details showing off the designers use of beads, sequins, lace and cut-outs, especially the gorgeous red-sequinned gown.

I just love the intimate feel of the film, that it has totally made me want more and I can’t wait to see some of this looks hitting the red carpet.
