Noah: Jennifer Connelly’s Gorgeous Promo Tour

Noah London Jennifer Connelly Noah: Jennifer Connellys Gorgeous Promo Tour %tag

I love a big film release, not only is it fun to see a blockbuster at the cinema, it also brings out the best red carpet fashion outside of award season and Cannes. For Noah, the epic biblical-inspired movie, I thought I would be gushing about Emma Watson, granted I have already and she has looked gorgeous, but for me this promo tour has all been about Jennifer Connelly, who plays Noah’s wife in the film, as she has looked sensational.

I have loved every look she has worn, from the exquisite floral embellished Alexander McQueen gown from the autumn/winter 2014 collection that she wore to the London premiere to the blush pink Givenchy Couture gown that she wore in Mexico, this gown was Oscar worthy and it was lovely to see her in it – the fuchsia jewels were incredible and it fitted her perfectly.

Jennifer has also added a touch of sex appeal to her red carpet looks as well as statement floor length gowns, I really loved her in this gorgeous mint leaf-embroidered Giambattista Valli Couture mini – that ruby-embellished neckline totally makes this one knockout look. This Madrid look was also one of my favourite make-up looks from Jennifer as well – the fuchsia lip teamed with a slick bun really makes this one amazing look – both elegant and sexy.

Actually ever detail about her Noah promo tour has been spot on – from the mix up of designers, which is nice to see, to the various hair and make-up styles that she has gone for, as well as her love of embellished and classic pieces – her stylist Leslie Fremar and glam squad really have done a great job.

It is hard to choose a favourite look, I love her classic custom Lanvin black velvet column gown that she wore in Berlin, because the thigh-high slit was classy and went perfectly with those Christian Louboutin heels and her hair styled in a tucked-under ’do is divine, but I think the pink embellished Givenchy Couture just wins out for me as this gown deserved a red carpet appearance.

Which of Jennifer Connelly’s styles gets your vote?

Doll Loving: A Blake Lively Barbie Doll…Well Sort Of

Barbie Zuhair Murad  Doll Loving:  A Blake Lively Barbie Doll...Well Sort Of %tag

I have always thought that Blake Lively with her model looks and blonde hair would make a great Barbie doll, well it seems so did Mattel, in a round about way. My favourite doll is getting her latest designer makeover and this time it is red carpet favourite Lebanese fashion designer Zuhair Murad, who is known for being one of Jennifer Lopez’s go-to designers.

His work is always edgy, sexy and divine, and one of my favourite looks over the past few years has got to be when Blake Lively wore one of his creations to the ‘Savages’ premiere and channelled Old Hollywood glamour with a striking Art Deco-inspired black and blush mermaid couture gown.

Well it seems that was one of Barbie’s favourites as well as the dramatic striped geometric design has been made pint-size for her limited edition red carpet-ready look. I just wish they had finished off the look with Blake’s retro waves than the boring updo and this Barbie would have been perfection. But that is the tiniest of flaws – I need this collectable doll in my collection.

I wonder what Blake thinks of her mini-me.

Want one of these limited-edition dolls for yourself? The Zuhair Murad Barbie will set you back $75 – you might have to wait a while though as it is already on back order at barbiecollector.com.

Critics’ Choice Awards: Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein

Lupita nyongo calvin klein Critics Choice Awards: Lupita Nyongo In Calvin Klein %tag

Who: Critics’ Choice winner Lupita Nyong’o 

Where: At the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica

Wearing: A custom ivory silk Calvin Klein Collection bandeau dress featuring cut-out detailing, teamed with a gold box clutch

Verdict: I love it when Hollywood newcomers outshine the old guard during award season, the winner of the best supporting actress award wowed at the Golden Globes, but I think this Calvin Klein bandeau dress is her best look let – she looks flawless.

Everything from the bandeau style to the cut-out detailing and the crisp white colour – I love this look from head-to-toe – she really is red carpet perfection.

I loved Margot Robbie in Elie Saab and Amy Adams’ pop of pink in Roland Mouret – but for me Lupita is hands down my favourite red carpet look from this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Margot Robbie In Elie Saab

margot robbie elie saab Critics Choice Movie Awards: Margot Robbie In Elie Saab %tagWho: The Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie

Where: At the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica

Wearing: A black Elie Saab jumpsuit, featuring long black lace sleeves, from the ready-to-wear spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with an Alexander McQueen ‘Panther’ clutch also from the spring/summer 2014 collection

Verdict: I love gowns, especially during award season, but I also love something a little different and the gorgeous Australian actress who wowed me in Gucci at the Golden Globes looked incredible in this elegant Elie Saab jumpsuit.

What I love about Margot, other than the fact you can see that she is new to the industry, which I love, is how effortless she makes every red carpet look. This look is polished and relaxed at the same time and makes her standout – I also love her beach-tousled hair as well.

Basically – Margot is just hot. I think she is fast becoming one of my red carpet crushes.

Are you a fan of a jumpsuit on an award show red carpet?

Dior Overload: Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Games Tour

Hunger Games JL Dior Rome Dior Overload: Jennifer Lawrences Hunger Games Tour %tag

Rome Premiere

It was kind of a given that for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo tour that Jennifer Lawrence, who is the face of Miss Dior, would wear pieces from the French fashion house – but was anyone really expecting it to be every single premiere that she attended? From London to Berlin to Madrid to Rome to Paris to Los Angeles and finally to New York – each step of the tour a new Dior look to go with her pixie cut.

On first reflection I was disappointed, not one was customised, some even looked ill-fitted, and not one really wowed me as the star of the film should, to be honest I felt that Elizabeth Banks really took the fashion stakes away from the leading lady.

Then I decided to look at the looks together and I have to give it to Jennifer and her styling team that each look is different – we have sheer gowns, embroidered dresses, statement draping, and even outerwear glammed up for the red carpet.

Los Angeles Premiere

My favourite is between the Los Angeles Dior Couture gown, where Jennifer wore a sheer grey knitted dress over a body showing off her great pins, the vanilla silk Dior Haute Couture dress that she wore to the Rome premiere, I just love the asymmetrical neckline, and the navy blue silk strapless dress in Madrid from the Dior Resort 2014 collection. I think what helps each of these looks is how fabulous her pixie cut looks – especially in Madrid where it reminded me of Cameron Diaz‘s hair in  ’There’s Something About Mary’.

There were a few looks that I didn’t like, London mainly, that multicoloured-embroidered white silk dress was just unflattering and quite ageing on her, I actually preferred it when she put on the red coat. I also thought the Berlin Dior Haute Couture cotton and pale blue embroidered guipure coat was just boring compared to Elizabeth Bank’s shimmering Elie Saab, and New York was just a little underwhelming.

I understand that when an actress signs up as a face that she has to show a little loyalty, but I think this was a little over the top. I could understand if each look was designed specially for her, but they weren’t, granted she might have loved each and every look – but did anyone else just think that she had been paid to wear Dior for the premieres? Maybe I am being a little cynical, I am just gutted that she didn’t wear other designers, I just wanted so more from her this promo tour.

Video Loving: Diane Kruger Chats Red Carpet, Stylists & Hollywood

Diane kruger vanity fair Video Loving: Diane Kruger Chats Red Carpet, Stylists & Hollywood %tagThis week Vanity Fair launched its own video channel featuring four original series inspired by the mag, one dedicated to Manhattan’s most iconic addresses, a book series, an animated ‘how-to’ series, which this week teaches you how to behave at a Swingers Party and a celebrity interview show hosted by Vanity Fair Senior West Coast Editor Krista Smith, which includes stars taking a spin in the V.F.’s video photo booth that always seems to be a highlight at their Oscar bash.

The first star to chat with Krista Smith is my girl crush Diane Kruger, yes I know I have already featured her once this week, but this video is super charming and the actress dishing on her love of fashion, not having a stylist and working the red carpet, as well as her new series on FX ‘The Bridge’.

Diane also gets into V.F.’s video photo – pulls silly faces, while still looking gorgeous, shares her love of profiteroles and the phrase ‘see what I mean’, while wearing the most adorable leopard print and multi-coloured flats.

Cannes Film Festival: Nicole Kidman In Dior Couture

Cannes Nicole kidman dior Cannes Film Festival: Nicole Kidman In Dior Couture %tag
Who: Actress Nicole Kidman

Where: At the Opening Night of The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival for the Great Gatsby Cannes Film Festival premiere held at the Theatre Lumiere

Wearing: A strapless floral embroidered Christian Dior Couture gown from the spring 2013 collection, teamed with coral pointed Dior heels and diamond stud earrings

Verdict: Wow, I can’t remember seeing Nicole Kidman looking so girlie and fresh before but this strapless floral beaded beauty shows her embracing her inner Grace Kelly and I love it. The dress itself really plays off the 1950s silhouette but adds a modern twist with the intricate beading work and the vibrant colours.

When Nicole was announced as the face of Jimmy Choo just before Cannes I was expecting a lot of heel-flattering dresses, however this look isn’t complemented by Jimmy Choo heels but Dior ones, but either way I love the pop of coral it works really well.

Finishing up her look is a strange quiff side ponytail, simple-yet-elegant diamond earrings and gorgeous fuchsia pink lips.

For me Nicole was easily one of the best dressed on the red carpet on Day 1 at Cannes.
