Baby2Baby Gala: Jessica Alba’s Barbie Princess Moment

Reem acra Jessica alba Baby2Baby Gala: Jessica Albas Barbie Princess Moment %tag

Who: Actress Jessica Alba

Where: At the Baby2Baby Gala held at The Book Bindery in Culver City, California

Wearing: In a hot Barbie pink strapless Reem Acra ball-gown from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with a navy box clutch and blue drop earrings

Verdict: I haven’t seen a hot Barbie pink gown on the red carpet look so good since Diane Kruger wowed in Jason Wu back in 2010. It is because of the daring, bright Barbie pink hue that makes this Reem Acra gown incredible, Jessica Alba always does girlie very well, but for me this is the best she has looked this year.

As well as adoring the shade of the gown, I love the Princess ball-gown silhouette of it, a shape that we generally only see during award season and Jessica really pulls it off with ease and looks amazing.

The styling also made this a great look, I love the addition of the turquoise and bright blue drop earrings, it is a great contrast to the bright pink, and I adore her slightly messy up-do.

I have to be honest I think this look is perfection.

What do you think of Jessica Alba’s latest red carpet look?

Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball: Kate Hudson In Reem Acra

Kate hudson reem acra Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball: Kate Hudson In Reem Acra %tagWho: Kate Hudson

Where: At the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City

Wearing: A Tiffany-blue Reem Acra gown featuring a sweetheart neckline, bow-tie detailing to the waist, and a thigh-high split from the Resort 2013 collection, teamed with Tiffany & Co. jewellery, Jimmy Choo nude peep-toe ‘Crown’ platform heels, and a metallic textured leather ‘Ava’ box clutch by Tiffany & Co.

Verdict: What I love about Kate Hudson is that she always ups the glamour stakes on a red carpet and this inspired Tiffany-blue gown is totally divine. There is a an old-school Hollywood glamour about this incredible look, maybe it is the pale blue colour of the gown, maybe it is the sweetheart neckline, or maybe it is just a combination of the knock-out gown, her hair side-swept into gorgeous waves, and her seductive but not OTT Angelina Jolie pose, showing off just the right amount of leg!!!

I also have to give her credit for not over-doing the jewellery, which must have been hard having the pick of all of Tiffany & Co., but her pear-shaped morganite and diamond earrings are simply exquisite and worked better than if she had chosen a necklace, and looked perfect with her diamond bracelet and pink diamond ring, all from the 2013 Blue Book Collection. I can’t help but swoon over Tiffany jewels

Kate always seems to get it so right and this has to be one of the most gorgeous looks I have seen from the blonde beauty in a while – everything about it screams glamour, which surely is the point for a Tiffany & Co. ball.

Are you a fan of Kate Hudson’s latest red carpet look?

Golden Globes 2013: Isla Fisher Sparkles In Reem Acra

Isla fisher reem acra Golden Globes 2013: Isla Fisher Sparkles In Reem Acra %tag

Who: Isla Fisher

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A champagne bead encrusted Reem Acra gown from the resort 2013 collection, teamed with a gunmetal clutch and a stack of diamond bracelets

Verdict: Nude hues were big news on the red carpet and one of my favourites had to be this sparkly Reem Acra gown that Isla wore. I love the simple silhouette, the sheer neckline and the way it shimmered on TV – trust me it looked even better than it does in pictures.

If the dress wasn’t enough to make me swoon I just have to look at her hair and make-up – so gorgeous. I love red hair but I love red hair teamed with bold lippy and Isla pulls it off perfectly.

Primetime Emmy Awards: The Trends – Citrus Hues, A Sea Of Blue, and Shades Of Grey

trend1 Primetime Emmy Awards: The Trends   Citrus Hues, A Sea Of Blue, and Shades Of Grey %tagI am a lover of the red carpet, I love seeing my favourite actresses, singers, and TV personalities looking all glamorous in designer couture gowns, and last night I was blown away by the standard of the Primetime Emmy Awards.

As well as spotting which designers they are wearing I also like to see the trends taking form, last award season there was a lot of open backs, and this Emmy Awards was all about a hint of colour, the various shades of blue and grey, with a little oxblood and floral mixed in for good measure.

I have already blogged some of my best dressed looks from January Jones’ statement Zac Posen gown to  Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier, to the shimmering beauty that was Lucy Liu in Versace, and the bombshell that is Sofia Vegara.

But with so many good looks I thought it best to do a trend post – so here are some more of my favourites.

Citrus Hues:

Normally there is a lot of black on award ceremony red carpet, that isn’t to say there wasn’t any last night – did you see January Jones, but what I was pleased about was all the citrus hues – ranging from vibrant oranges to canary yellow – maybe it was the California heat but the red carpet was sizzling.

Leading the orange pack was definitely Monique Lhuiller she dressed Ginnifer Goodwin in an orange floral embroidered beauty and Padma Lakshmi looked radiant in her strapless trumpet gown – the colour was perfection on her.

Then there was Leslie Mann in Naeem Khan, I love the contrast of the marigold coloured skirt with the embroidered ivory halter-neck bodice – seriously beautiful.

Finishing up the orange hues is Lindsay Pulsipher in Bibhu Mohapatra – everything about the colour to the Grecian styling of her hairstyle this is a gorgeous look.

Yellow was another key trend, which I was a little on the fence with as I am not sure about yellow on the red carpet, but I loved Julianne Moore’s canary yellow Christian Dior Couture gown – the full silk skirt looks stunning on her.

A pregnant and Emmy award-winning Claire Danes went for Lanvin, she said “it’s very bump friendly”, which is very true the draping was flattering and the colour really complemented her skin-tone.

But my favourite of the yellow gowns had to be ‘New Girl’ star Hannah Simone in a sunny yellow custom one-shoulder Emilio Pucci gown. I love the shade, I love the sexy thigh-high split, and the Lorraine Schwartz leaf earrings. One thing I can’t cope with though is her visible tan marks!!!

A Sea of Blue:

The blue tones ranged from aqua to midnight blue and each really stood out on the red carpet. Leading the pack were the darker shades, it is hard to choose my favourite but the two that really stood out were Sarah Paulson in Reem Acra, the embroidery was exquisite, and I adored the Louis Vuitton gown that British actress Michelle Dockery wore, it was simple but elegant.

I also added in Hayden Panettiere into the mix, I have to be honest I kind of like the dress the gold-embroidered Marchesa gown with blue tulle overlay works well, but I worry that it is a little too mature for her.

The aqua and pale blue hues were a little more playful and sexy. From the neck down I adored Julianne Hough’s Georges Hobeika Couture, I just don’t understand what she did with her hair. Heidi Klum showed off her sexy side in in Alexandre Vauthier – showing Angelina Jolie how to work a thigh-high slit.

But the gown that caught my attention had to be Zooey Deschanel’s princess gown designed by Reem Acra, it was whimsical, quirky and cute and she looked amazing, but why in all the pictures is she not smiling???

Shades Of Grey:

There is always something nice about grey and silver tones on the red carpet, always makes me think of Old-Hollywood glamour, and there were some elegant gowns last night.

Emily VanCamp from my new favourite show Revenge looked gorgeous in a delicate pleated J. Mendel gown, I adore the dove grey shade and the sheer bodice. But what makes this outfit has to be her bow tie Van Cleef bracelet – the best jewellery of the night!!!

With grey comes shimmery silvers and Lucy Lui in Versace and Kerry Washington in Vivienne Westwood Couture both dazzled at the Emmy’s, Kerry’s gown just looked effortless and sexy. I am going to call it tie between these two.

There were a number of Vivienne Westwood Couture gowns on the red carpet last night, with Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt leading the charge in this incredible corseted gown, which had a belt to nip in her tiny waist, and a split to add a touch of sexy – this dress had it all!

But my favourite shade of grey goes to Homeland’s actress Morena Baccarin who wore a sexy Basil Soda gown with a plunging neckline. I love the daring flash of cleavage, hey if you looked like Morena wouldn’t you flash them, and the David Webb drop earrings – this is a statement gown that totally floored me I love it!!!

Avengers Assemble: Cobie Smulders In Reem Acra

Cobie1 Avengers Assemble: Cobie Smulders In Reem Acra %tag

Who: Actress Cobie Smulders

Where: At the “Marvel’s The Avengers” Premiere during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival at the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York City

Wearing: An orange Reem Acra v-neck gown with embellished cap sleeves from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with a gold Judith Leiber clutch, a matching cuff, and drop earrings

Verdict: I am loving Cobie Smulders she has really surprised me on this Avengers promo tour, each look has been amazing, I loved the sexy Donna Karan, she blew me away in that vibrant red Alexandra Vidal, but I think this bold orange has to be my favourite and it is all because of those amazing embellished cap sleeves.

Which has been your favourite Cobie look?

Golden Globes: Madonna Working Reem Acra

madonna Golden Globes: Madonna Working Reem Acra %tag

Who: Madonna, Madge, Queen of Pop – whatever you like to call her

Where: At the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A gunmetal and dark green embroidered Reem Acra gown with cap sleeves and a tiered skirt of ruched ribbons from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with just one fingerless glove, diamond cuffs and a diamond encrusted cross necklace

Verdict: Since I found out that Madonna was going to do the red carpet last week I have been going through all the designers I thought she would wear, they included Dolce & Gabbana, YSL, Jean Paul Gaultier, Gucci or even that she would go ladylike in L’Wren Scott – I most certainly couldn’t have predicted that she would go with Reem Acra.

I have to be honest I am not sure what to make of this dress. I love the gunmetal bodice, the cap sleeves kind of have a forties vibe to them, and even the dark green colour, I am not a fan though of the ribbons and the added texture of the skirt – but what I hate even more is her need to accessories everything with fingerless gloves. I understand two because I thought she was trying to hide her age, which can clearly be seen on her hands, but one – come on let the 80s go!!!
