Cannes 2012: Jada Pinkett Smith In Emilio Pucci

JadaHaiti Cannes 2012: Jada Pinkett Smith In Emilio Pucci %tag
Who: Actress Jada Pinkett Smith

Where: At Sean Penn’s Haiti Benefit Gala Dinner at the Electrolux Agora Pavilion during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A custom-made gold strapless Emilio Pucci gown with beaded embellishments and lace inserts

Verdict: Jada really has had a busy Cannes and once again this is another stunning gown. There is something special about this metallic patchwork gown that I really like, I’m not sure it beats her orange Atelier Versace gown but comes pretty close.

I don’t know why but Jada hasn’t really been on my radar before Cannes and I’m thinking that she must have a new stylist as she has been on fire. I wonder if this is her done for this year’s event or if she has another gorgeous gown in her suitcase?

Venice Film Festival: Bar Refael In Emilio Pucci

barpuccivenice Venice Film Festival: Bar Refael In Emilio Pucci %tag

Who: Bar Refaeli

Where: At the Carnage”premiere during the 68th Venice International Film Festival at Palazzo del Cinema

Wearing: A black Emilio Pucci jumpsuit with lace panel detailing from the Resort 2012 collection, teamed with a black box clutch

Verdict: If it wasn’t for the lace panel detailing this look wouldn’t have wowed me as much as it has. Of course her model proportions look amazing in this jumpsuit, and the touch of lace adds a sexy touch that she is working perfectly. I also love the Victorian-style buttons as well.

But what is it with the un-styled hair, I said it yesterday that Abbie Cornish didn’t pull it off like Diane Kruger, and I think Bar needed to take a little bit more time as well.

Pirates: Penelope Cruz in Marchesa, Emilio Pucci, Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Armani

PenelopeMarcPC4 Pirates: Penelope Cruz in Marchesa, Emilio Pucci, Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Armani %tag

Who: Actress Penelope Cruz

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean Premiere in Cannes, France

Wearing: A lavender coloured jewel encrusted illusion Marchesa gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with flared silk tulle skirt and shoulder detailing; paired with a Swarovski clutch and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: Other than the Disney Premiere when Penelope wore that gorgeous black Marchesa, this is my favourite look from her European promo tour so far. I always feel that Marchesa add something extra to their red carpet looks but this is a divine dress that looks like it was designed especially for Penelope. It is hugging her in all the right places, and the colour is just perfection against her skin tone. She really is beautiful.

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides photocall at the Palais des Festivals during the 64th Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A navy form-fitted Stella McCartney dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with a velvet skirt and teamed with navy heels

Verdict: I always love dresses that fall just below-the-knee, and navy blue makes it perfection for me. This is a perfect look for a photocall, and Stella McCartney is one of the best choices to go for, it really does show how amazing Penelope’s body is. Great look and I am so glad that she kept her hair down.

Where: At the première of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in Moscow

Wearing: A knee-length black velvet embroidered Emilio Pucci dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with long sleeves and bow detailing

Verdict: This is one statement dress, normally I wouldn’t like this but Penelope oozes just enough attitude for this dress to shine. I know some will say that this is a boring look for a premiere, but I love the drama of the high neck, large bow and velvet. I like it.

Wearing: A white embroidered Givenchy Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with exposed zip detailing to the front

Verdict: At first glance I wasn’t sure about this look. There is no question that she is looking fabulous post-baby, but I just wasn’t sure if

Where: At the Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Premiere in Munich, Germany

Wearing: A custom fitted red organza Giorgio Armani Privé gown with long-sleeves

Verdict: What a beauty!! I loved Anne Hathaway when she wore a similar Armani gown in sapphire satin, but this red is just perfection and looks amazing on Penelope. Simply gorgeous.

Fragrance Loving: Pucci Reveals New Scent – Miss Pucci

miss pucci 500x717 Fragrance Loving: Pucci Reveals New Scent   Miss Pucci %tag

Pic: Pucci

I reveal a lot of my obsessions, passions and addictions on this blog and perfume bottles is one of them – so you can imagine how excited I was to see this new scent from Pucci – ‘miss Pucci’.

Designed by Ora Ito, the bottle is based on the small oval bubble motif that is seen in Pucci prints, most notably in the Vivara print. I love the jewel-like bottle, I like that it has the brightness that you would expect of Pucci but the glamour that you always get from fragrance bottles. This is one of my favourite bottles in a long time.

The scent itself is described as a ‘sparkling floral musk’ and is all about the ‘youth, energy and charm’  that embodies the quintessential style of the ‘Pucci girl’ – I can’t wait to smell it.

The ad campaign to accompany the release is just as gorgeous, shot by fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo, it features Polish model Malgosia Bela who tells the story of miss Pucci – complete with a Pucci dress.

Met Gala: Fashion Event Of The Year

MetropolitanMuseumofArtCostumeInstitutegala 01 122 543lo 500x333 Met Gala: Fashion Event Of The Year %tag

I chose the most inappropriate time to get ill last week with the biggest event in the fashion calendar took place – the 2010 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, dubbed the ‘Oscars of Fashion’. The guest list was amazing as always, there was Sienna Miller’s first outing with Jude Law since they reunited, Anna Wintour dancing with Diddy, it was like a who’s who of the fashion world from Hollywood stars to models. There were amazing frocks, some fashion disasters and then there was my style icon Diane Kruger looking amazing as always. This year’s event, American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity, was sponsored by Gap and they teamed up with emerging designers Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet and Rodarte – and got them to dress some of the hottest celebs including Jessica Alba, Kirsten Dunst and Zoe Kravitz.

Best Of The Young Hollywood Starlets has to be Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively in an amazing strapless Marchesa a/w10 frock with peacock draped chiffon teamed with Christian Louboutin heels. The Brits were out in force, Carey Mulligan went for an understated (very boring – not glamourous enough for me) Miu Miu frock, Sienna looking all loved up chose a Pucci and then there was Alexa Chung who decided to play the cool card as always in a tux by Philip Lim.

But for me Best Brit had to be Emma Watson looking gorgeous in a custom-made one-shoulder white Burberry frock (as the face of the brand she kind of should look amazing!).

Shimmering Goddess has to be Nicole Richie in this amazing silver Marc Jacobs, this frock stands out for all the right reasons and I love how she has teamed it with a black sash around the waist and an oversized black clutch – and her hair is fierce – love!! chloescelebutopia2 500x782 Met Gala: Fashion Event Of The Year %tag

There were lots of other delights Chloe Sevigny in a teal Proenza Schouler, Rachel Weisz in a beautiful ruffled pink Oscar de la Renta, Eva Mendes wore a Dolce & Gabbana flowery number, Jennifer Lopez went for the classic princess look in a couture gown by Zuhair Murad and Emma Roberts cute in a custom black organza Marni with a stone-embellished belt.

There were some frocks that I wasn’t keen on and the one in particular has to be singer’s Katy Perry in a glowing CuteCircuit gown which had over 3000 LEDs with silk chiffon creating a rainbow of colours. I am sure she did get some best dressed awards for this innovative dress but for me it just seems a little tacky.
