AW14 Campaign: The Givenchy Rave

AW14 Givenchy AW14 Campaign: The Givenchy Rave %tag

Ever wondered what a Riccardo Tisci private party would looked liked? Well according to Givenchy’s autumn/winter 2014 ad campaign it includes a select guest list, gorgeous models, lots of dancing, half-naked men, music from the Martinez Brothers and most importantly a strict Givenchy AW14 dress code. It really does sounds like my sort of rave.

Starring models Julia Noblis, Mariacara Boscono, Jamie Bochert, Peter Brant Jr. and Kendall Jenner the campaign was shot by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The print campaign is great – the most photogenic group of friends on a night out, but for me the AW14 campaign is really brought to life with the short film showing the models dancing – it really does show off the sheer, printed dresses and skirts off to perfection.

Come on hand’s up who wants to be invited to the next Givenchy private party?

Met Gala 2014: Disney Villans vs Fairytale Princess

The Met Gala always brings out the best in fashion and the hottest stars, this year was no exception for the Charles James ‘White Tie & Diamonds’ themed bash, and it looks like some celebs took their inspiration from Disney’s up-coming flick, Maleficent.

Channelling Maleficent’s Gothic glamour was Beyonce who captivated the red carpet outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Wearing a custom beaded Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown, Beyonce really stood out in this sexy look with its plunging neckline and very revealing back.

As ever Beyonce really excluded the attitude and confidence to pull this exquisite gown off, much like Angelina Jolie in the Maleficent movie, and her look really is pulled together with her statement Lorraine Schwartz jewels, black veil, and her bold burgundy lip.

Only Beyonce could take inspiration from a Disney villain and be one of the best dressed at the gala!!!

.

There were a number of contenders for Aurora’s fairytale chic crown, there was Blake Lively in a shimmering blush Gucci gown, Suki Waterhouse in a blush ruffle number by Burberry, but for me the fairest of them all had to be footwear designer Tabitha Simmons who looked at one with nature in this floral masterpiece by Dolce & Gabbana

This gown really feels like Aurora, it’s whimsical, ethereal, and gorgeous with all the floral appliqués adorning the bodice and skirt. Simply divine and perfect for a Princess.

Who wins Beyonce or Tabitha?

Met Gala 2013 Buzz: So Who’s Taking Who???

Diana kruger prada Met Gala 2013 Buzz: So Whos Taking Who??? %tagEach year after the Oscars and the award season has finished I have to admit I go through a little lull when it comes to red carpet appearances, premieres are fine but they just don’t have the glamour of a big award show, which is why I am always pleased when May comes around as it has two big fashion events – the Cannes Film Festival and the Met Gala.

This coming Monday, May 6, the very best in fashion will be strutting their stuff in celebration of Met’s Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition, and I love that the red carpet event is kind of a mash-up of the Oscars and fashion week, where designers showcase their very best gowns with most specially created for the event, on some of the biggest stars. It always seems to bring glamour and drama and some of the best looks of the year.

Last year was a Prada affair thanks to Miuccia Prada being co-chair, Diane Kruger in that gorgeous purple gown is still one of my favourite Met Gala looks, well this year is bound to be all about Givenchy as Riccardo Tisci is on the panel and his co-chair is Rooney Mara.

As well as enjoying the red carpet, I love the anticipation and lead-up to the event, guessing what people will wear, and who’s dressing who, which means for the week before I am addicted to WWD, the NY Post and the New York Times – they always have the best scoops.

So want to know the latest rumours? Well I have put down some of my favs below:

  • Tommy Hilfiger has announced that his table will be filled with a rather odd mix including Zooey Deschanel, Nicki Minaj, Lily Aldridge, Thalia Mottola, Debbie Harry and Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill – I can’t imagine Nicki Minaj in TH!
  • Jennifer Lopez will be a Michael Kors girl for the night – I can’t wait to see this
  • Iron Man’s Gwyneth Paltrow is going with Valentino – I wonder if her look will top her sexy Prada mini from last year?
  • There are no surprises regarding who Dior is taking – Oscar winning-actress Jennifer Lawrence and French beauty Marion Cotillard – I am just hoping for something customised
  • One of my most interesting reports is that Alexander Wang is designing a custom Balenciaga look for Julianne Moore – that’s going to be amazing
  • Sienna Miller is apparently attending with Burberry, well no surprise as she is rumoured to be the label’s new face
  • Diane von Furstenberg is taking Emma Roberts
  • Jessica Alba is set to attend with Tory Burch
  • Topshop is getting in on the action again with Jaime King, plus the retailer is taking Julianne Hough
  • Elizabeth Banks is going with Brian Atwood – so we can be assured her shoes will be hot

No word on whether anyone will be wearing Donna Karan, Prada, Versace, Alexander McQueen, or Elie Saab, or even if Nina Dobrev, Anne Hathaway, Diane Kruger or Sarah Jessica Parker will be attending – I have all my fingers and toes crossed!!!

If I hear anything I will be sure to keep you updated via my Twitter and Facebook pages.

Who are you excited about seeing and who do you want to attend?

Les Misérables: Anne Hathaway In Givenchy

Anne Hathaway givenchy Les Misérables: Anne Hathaway In Givenchy %tagWho: Actress Anne Hathaway

Where: At the Les Misérables World Premiere in London

Wearing: A white off-the-shoulder beaded Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, featuring draped sleeves, dramatic neckline and a plunging open back

Verdict: Well after I got over the shock of seeing Anne Hathaway sporting such a dramatic couture gown – seriously what a contrast to yesterdays blog post about her fun cover shoot with Glamour, I was quietly pleased.

I am sure for some they won’t like this Givenchy gown on Anne, but I love that she went for something daring, but I do wonder how much convincing Rachel Zoe her stylist had to do. But come whether you like this gown on Anne you have to admit this look deserved to be showed off.

What I love is that her pixie hair cut that she has been getting to grips with over the past few months really works with this dress, it allows the gown with its off-the-shoulder and backless detailing really shine, and I am so pleased that she went for bright ruby lips – completes her movie starlet look.

This is sure to divide critics – but what do you think love or hate Anne’s dramatic look?

AW12 Campaign: The Intense Givenchy Rave

AW12Givenchy4 AW12 Campaign: The Intense Givenchy Rave %tag

Oooh I do love something a little different, and this autumn/winter 2012 ad campaign from Givenchy certainly is a little different. Styled by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott this is a stunning campaign aptly named the ‘Rave’.

Starring Tisci’s favs Stella Tennant and Joan Smalls, as well as Daniela Braga, Stef Van Der Laan, Rodrigo Braga, Simone Nobili and Jarrod Scott, the models get their dance on to spectacular results.

What I love most about this campaign has to be the intensity of the images, from the stormy skies to the urban setting and the striking androgynous styling. This is definitely going to be one of the most memorable ad campaigns of the season, and I can’t wait to see it in print.

Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy

Resort2013Givenchy2 Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy %tag

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!!!Resort2013Givenchy1 Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy %tag

Met Gala 2012: Hottest Couple – Gisele and Tom Brady

gisele2 Met Gala 2012: Hottest Couple   Gisele and Tom Brady %tag

There were a couple of trends at last night’s Met Gala, high shine shimmery gowns, pops of oranges and lemons, feathered beauties and then there were the classic black gowns from the likes of Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Liv Tyler, and Mary-Kate Olsen, but one that stood out the most had to be Gisele’s Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci.

She has a head start on most on the red carpet with her model looks, incredibly long legs, which she worked in an Angelina Jolie kind of way, and then she has a hunky husband to accompany her, how is this fair???

There weren’t that many thigh-high splits last night, maybe they knew that they couldn’t compete with Gisele, but she really does look amazing in this sparkly gown.
