Jacob & Co Charity Gala: Diane Kruger In Marchesa

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At Jacob & Co’s charity gala held at the Salle Empire, Hotel de Paris in Monte-Carlo, Monaco

Wearing: A white column Marchesa gown featuring feathers on the sleeves and waist and gold embroidery embellishments to the bust from the Resort 2013 collection, teamed with Jacob & Co. diamond drop earrings, a cushion cut diamond ring and diamond cuff bracelet

Verdict: Wow, what a beauty Diane Kruger is, my crush is going into serious overdrive after seeing this look. I think if you saw this dress on anyone else with all those feathers it might have been a touch OTT, but on Diane this show-stopping gorgeous gown just looks perfection.

I love that the fact that she wore her hair pulled tightly up, it allowed the dress to shine as well as those incredible drop earrings.

I am in love with this look – what do you think does Diane pull off this gorgeous Marchesa gown?

The Amazing Spider-Man: Emma Stone In Chanel

Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the LA premiere for her new movie The Amazing Spider-Man

Wearing: A short-sleeved white Chanel dress with burgundy velvet embroidered flowers on the bodice and shoulders from the Resort 2012/3 collection, teamed with a peek-a-boo tulle underlay, silver spiked Christian Louboutin heels with ankle straps and Cartier jewellery

Verdict: Coming to the end of her world tour for Spider-Man, Emma really has pulled out all the stops wearing a gorgeous tuxedo-style jumpsuit by Elie Saab, a sexy Gucci gown, a stunning Bottega Veneta gown with a striking peplum waist, and a delicate embroidered Dolce & Gabbana dress, so it was only fair that Chanel got a look in!!!

I am not sure if this is my favourite of the looks, the Elie Saab and the Dolce & Gabbana were amazing, and come on the black Gucci gown was incredible, but this is gorgeous and elegant, while still showcasing her fun personality perfectly. I think you will all agree this has been a very successful promo tour for Emma in the fashion stakes.

Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy

Scarf prints that we saw in D&G’s last ever collection and that are embracing the high street for spring/summer 2012 aren’t going anywhere as Riccardo Tisci brought his gypsy vibe to the streets of New York for his resort collection. The gorgeous collection is filled with the striking scarf motifs of paisley printed patchworks on silk satin, twill and jersey, mixed with geometric blocks in colours of black, white and red, creating divine eye-catching statement pieces.

It seems that the modern nomadic travelling woman is all about mixing and matching and likes a clean-cut architectural silhouette, I think this is the best ‘urban couture’ I have ever seen. I loved the mix of the long-flowing belted eveningwear dresses, which featured long-sleeves slit all the way to the shoulders, creating a cape-like effect, which continued on the tops and outerwear, alongside slouchy billowing sarouel pants that were teamed with Givenchy’s signature tailored pieces such as the boxy jacket and shirts.

The collection was complemented with strong accessories from boxy shaped handbags to small clutches, and the footwear featured everything from open-toe high gladiator boots to high-heeled loafers and ankle-strap sandals that I am sure will be gracing the red carpet soon.

I also loved the large geometric belts, the sculptural rings, and of course the New York street-style shoot, how cute is that fluffy dog!!!

Resort 2013: Stella McCartney Throws A Very Chic Garden Party

Yesterday in New York, Stella McCartney hosted a very chic garden party to showcase her Resort 2013 collection in one of the most enjoyable looking presentations I have ever seen, seriously it is making me want to move to NYC they get such great events.

This wasn’t just an ordinary catwalk this was models dancing, blowing bubbles, drinking cocktails from jam jars, and playing retro games – I am going to call it the most chic carnival ever!!! The collection itself look incredible I loved all the yellow and baby blue colours, seriously divine, as well as the hints of Barbie pink, floral and leopard prints, as well as clean whites.

The clothes themselves as with all Stella’s collection looked completely wearable from the bell-bottoms with tuxedo stripes to the floral and brocade blazers, to the adorable Capri pants and gorgeous baby blue pleated dresses, and oh my I am loving the leopard print beauties – those coats are high on my wishlist.

Of course with it being Stella, celebrities turned up and showed their support including a very chic Anne Hathaway who looked stunning in a white Stella McCartney suit teamed with her new pixie cut, which I am loving, nude heels and a classic pair of Ray-Bans.

But I think my best celeb look has to go to Solange Knowles, who looked adorable in a purple dress by the designer, also check out her arm candy, very cool look – also her hair is divine love the natural look on her.
