Met Gala 2012: Karolina Kurkova In Rachel Zoe

Who: Karolina Kurkova

Where: At the Met Gala 2012 in New York

Wearing: A long-sleeved fitted gold sequinned custom-made Rachel Zoe gown, with an open back, teamed with a matching gold sequinned turban, and gold clutch

Verdict: This is one breathtaking gown and look, which could have only been pulled together by stylist extraordinary and now designer Rachel Zoe. One of the main reasons why I love the Met Gala nearly as much as the Oscars is because the models work the red carpet rather than the catwalk, and they always seem to pull off impossible looks, and Karolina proves in this gorgeous Rachel Zoe creation that she is one amazing model.

I love this look from head to toe, the whole look is just so over the top, but that’s the point the Met Gala is the biggest fashion event of the year if you can’t make a splash at this event where can you? I think Karolina works the gold statuette look amazingly, this is without a doubt one of my best looks, I completely adore it!!!

One last thing though – am I the only one that instantly thought of Kate Moss from the 2009 Met Gala wearing Marc Jacobs when they saw Karolina hit the red carpet? Obviously not identical, but maybe Rachel’s pal Marc inspired the creation.

Numeros Prives: Chanel Jets Celebs To Las Vegas

Over the weekend French fashion house Chanel jetted out their fav models, actresses, singers, stylists and high-profile journos to Las Vegas to celebrate the launch of the Numeros Prives exhibition at the Wynn hotel. No expense was spared – private jets, Chanel-decked chauffeured cars, lots of disco balls and even a Chanel vending machine!!!

My favourite of the celebrities had to be the gorgeous Diane Kruger who looked stunning in an iridescent sequin embroidered Chanel dress from the spring/summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection. Granted this isn’t an amazing picture the beaded curtain kind of looks a little like the dress but I adore the high neck and the shimmering effect of the sequins.

Another amazing look was from Jessica Alba, who I have to admit I was wondering whether it was Rachel’s or Brad’s styling, as they were both there. I think she looked stunning in this monochrome silk Chanel dress from the 2012 Cruise collection, teamed with Chanel fine jewellery – that white gold, black ceramic and diamond encrusted cuff is just divine.

I find this image that Alexa tweeted a little surreal as I have also had my picture taken next to the giant Chanel 2.55 bag – when the exhibition was inside Harrods. It was also nice to see Alexa wearing a little colour in this pale blue boucle mini Chanel dress from the spring/summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection – I just love the buttons down the front.

Christmas Card: Kardashian Klan Work Bow Ties

I am not sure what my fascination is with the Kardashian-Jenner-Odom-Disick Klan, but I have to admit I do look forward to seeing their Christmas card, mainly because they really do go all out. This year the family decided to work monochrome and bow ties in a very chic-yet-moody masculine vibe, with one except and that of course had to be Kris who stands in the centre in her gorgeous teal Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Styled by Monica Rose for the third year running, the theme was ‘a bit girl meets boy’ and I kind of like it. Bow ties are always very chic, and I do think women in tuxedos looks hot, and even the men of the family look amazing, including a very confident looking Rob in his Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo.

The stand outs for me of course have to be Kim in that gorgeous sequinned Rachel Zoe blazer, teamed with wide-leg Chloe trousers and a Jill Pineda black faux leather bow tie. With Kim standing alone it does make me wonder if they had to photoshoot poor Kris Humpries out!!!!

Kylie and Kendall also worked it!!! I love that even though there was a masculine theme, and only Kris could work colour, Kendall the model of the family was able to wear that stunning Theyskens’ Theory gown – completely showed of her fab figure, while still maintaining the tuxedo feel. Her sister Kylie looks gorgeous in a Paula Ka tuxedo, my fav look of the girls in tuxs – using black ribbon as her bow tie is just genius!!! What this card and their looks really showed to me is that 2012 is going to be all about the Jenner sisters!!

Not to be out-done by sister Kim, Khloe also rocked a sequinned tuxedo jacket this time by Dolce & Gabbana – I think her pants win though as I do love Lanvin tuxedo trousers. Sad though as Khloe is the only one not working a bow tie – a sequinned beauty to match her jacket would have looked amazing.

But with every family portrait there is always one trying too hard and this year it has to be Kourtney – what was she thinking with those sheer socks??? It is a shame really as if she had worked that gorgeous Nikki Rich bolero, Muubaa leather skirt and Dolce & Gabbana bow tie with some sparkly Miu Miu heels – and ditched the belt, her look may have been one of the best. However, it seems she has been up-staged by a very moody Mason.

As much as I like this card, I do wonder why they are all looking so glum on a Christmas card – and seriously what the hell are they all staring at???!!!???

Oh and I nearly forgot this year’s Christmas card shot by Nick Saglimbeni doesn’t just come in 2D, nope the card what also snapped in 3D and sent out with special 3D glasses – how will they out-do that next year?

Well Anne Hathaway and Rachel Zoe really did show around the love last night with her designer wardrobe last night for her hosting duties at the 83rd Academy Awards.

We had the gorgeous red Valentino to walk the red carpet, the cream Givenchy Couture gown to open the show, followed by one of my favourite looks the Lanvin tux teamed with those amazing sparkly Brian Atwood heels, and then we had a stream of amazing gowns: a corseted Vivienne Westwood, a fringed Oscar de la Renta, a beaded Atelier Versace, a space age Armani Prive, and then ended with a smoky grey Tom Ford.

I think my favourite three looks have to be the Versace, closely followed by the Armani and then the Lanvin tux.

What did you think was her best look?

Who: Co-host of the Academy Awards Anne Hathaway

Where: Arriving at the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood

Wearing: A red vintage Valentino couture gown with a huge train and floral appliques to the sides, teamed with Tiffany’s 94-carat, $10 million Lucida Star diamond necklace, 10-carat diamond earrings and a 5-carat diamond ring

Verdict: This is look one from Anne and Rachel Zoe, and what an amazing gown it is. No-one is going to beat that train tonight – it is huge and I love the flower detailing. Gorgeous, striking and perfect for the Oscars.

Red certainly seems to be the colour of the night *striking off my original comment on the Jennifer Lawrence blog*.

LOVE everything about this look.

83rd Oscars: Anne Hathaway Gives Us A Taste

This week the Oscar nominations were finally announced, and I was super excited as this is one of my favourite award shows, as the stars really do shine in the most impeccable gowns.

Well here is a taste of who got nominated…going for the leading ladies as come on that is who is going to sparkle *fingers crossed* on the red carpet.

Fighting it out for Best Actress in a Leading Role we have: Annette Bening, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, and Michelle Williams. I have to admit I am so pleased that my latest style crush Jennifer is amongst this line-up as I was so impressed with her Louis Vuitton gown at the Golden Globes. Of course Nicole is going to bring her elegance, Natalie is continuing to show how to do maternity wear in style, and I have seriously got my fingers crossed that Michelle really brings it as I was disappointed with her Golden Globes gown.

I was also super pleased for Ken and Barbie that Toy Story 3 were nominated in both Animated Feature Film and Best Picture. But was a little disappointed that the Rodarte costumes of Black Swan didn’t make the cut. Check out the full list here on the Academy’s website.

Well of course I can’t wait for February 27, as this year’s event is being hosted by the stylish Anne Hathaway *by super stylist Rachel Zoe* and the gorgeous James Franco. I love the promo picture above as it really gives us a taste of what’s to come from Anne, especially as she looks so chic in this black silk jersey J.Mendel long-sleeve gown, with its detailed bodice and column skirt – gorgeous!!

Also below is the Oscar promo ad, check out Anne wearing Jeremy Scott’s gold wing shoes – LOVE these so much on her! Also Anne and James have chemistry – I really think this year is going be a great show.

Roll on February 27 – I can’t wait to be staying up all night long blogging away and enjoying the show!

Golden Globes: Anne Hathaway Best Back Alert In Armani

Actress Anne Hathaway arrives at the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, January 16, 2011. REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni (UNITED STATES – Tags: ENTERTAINMENT) (GOLDENGLOBES-ARRIVALS)

Who: Nominated actress Anne Hathaway *sadly did not win*

Where: At the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A bronze Armani Privé gown from the autumn/winter 2010 couture collection fully embellished with pailettes and Swarovski crystal, featuring huge shoulders, long fitted sleeves and a gorgeous low open back

Verdict: This gown was the finale of the Armani Privé collection when it hit the runway, and it shined tonight on the red carpet. As soon as I saw it I was like Rachel Zoe has done good, and Anne will definatly be on the best dressed list in the morning.

I love long sleeves, open backs and trains on a gown and this has it all, add into the mix an extremely charming and gorgeous Anne Hathaway and for me you have one of the best dressed of the night.
