Red Carpet: Diane Kruger In Roland Mouret

Who: Actress Diane Kruger

Where: At the 18th Annual City Of Lights, City Of Angels Film Festival at Directors Guild Of America in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A black Roland Mouret ‘Tabit’ jumpsuit featuring a contrasting white neckline from the Resort 2014 collection, teamed with a stripped oversized clutch, blue polka-dot heels and a shearling-lined denim coat

Verdict: Normally I don’t question what Diane Kruger wears, basically it is always perfection, however this look is only 95% there for me and it is all because of that denim jacket.

The jumpsuit I adore, it is chic and modern, especially when you see the sculptured neckline of the Roland Mouret piece, and I love that she turned up the hem to show off her ankles and those amazing pointy-toe polka-dot heels.

But for me the denim jacket just overwhelms the look and kind of takes away from the flattering fit of the jumpsuit. All I can think of is that she was cold – there is no other reason I can think of to keep this jacket on to walk the red carpet!!!

What I will say is that her hair and make-up as always didn’t let her down – simply flawless and her shoes are incredible.

Shop her Style: You can pick up Diane’s Roland Mouret ‘Tabit’ stretch-crepe jumpsuit at Net-a-Porter for £1,395.

What do you think – are you on board with this look?

Shopping: The Outnet’s 5th Birthday Collection

The-Outnet-5th-birthday-3

Can you believe that The Outnet is only 5 years old? For me it seems to have been around for as long as its higher-end, exclusive big sister Net-a-Porter, and it really has come a long way since its days as just a clearance outlet. Yeah it has always been the place to go for a designer bargain but the past 18-months or so I have really found it a go-to site when shopping for any occasion, not only for discounted gear but also for its Iris & Ink in-house collection of luxury staples and its accessories are always so incredible, my last few designer handbags have come from The Outnet.

So to celebrate its 5th Birthday, The Outnet has teamed up with 17 amazing designers including Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Chloé and J.W.Anderson to produce a collection featuring their re-issued, best-loved pieces and I basically want everything!!!

A few weeks ago I got to check out the collection, basically imagined spending away my wedding fund, and styled up a few of my favourite pieces, which is hard when the line also includes Oscar de la Renta, Jason Wu, Nicholas Kirkwood and Haizhen Wang and starts at just £130.

Of course I instantly fell in love with the accessories – the Squeeze It’ patent-leather Alexander McQueen clutch is to-die-for, I love it so much and the £357 price-tag isn’t bag for a classic piece like this, and pair it with those Nicholas Kirkwood panelled suede heels for £318 and you have some killer accessories to jazz up any look. I also loved the classic dark-brown Chloé wedges, a bargain at £225, I think these will be an instant sell-out, as will the statement Oscar de la Renta resin and gold-tone floral necklace, £265.The-Outnet-5th-birthday-2

If I had to pick a look from the collection that I would love to wear I think it would have to be the Haizhen Wang black leather jacket, the shape at the back is gorgeous, teamed with the romantic floral-print silk-jacquard Jason Wu dress, paired with those stunning Nicholas Kirkwood heels, and the bold red Oscar de la Renta necklace. I would love to throw in the McQueen clutch but that might just be a little too much!!!

There were also a couple of great looks to wear to a summer wedding for an elegant affair why not try Roland Mouret’s sky-blue O’Hara dress, the colour and fit of this dress is perfection, I really love the folded neck detailing and exposed zip down the back. While a cool, hip wedding you could go for this fun printed silk and moiré pencil Preen by Thornton Bregazzi skirt, team with a white blouse or a crisp white T-shirt and bright accessories.

There are just so many options with this fabulous limited edition collection, but trust me don’t wait around long I think most of these pieces will be instant sell-outs.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Amy Adams Wears Barbie Pink

amy-adams-roland-mouret

Who: Amy Adams

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

Wearing: A vibrant pink Roland Mouret ‘Tinea’ gown, featuring a draped neckline, from the pre-autumn/winter 2014 collection, teamed with a black grosgrain ribbon nipping in her waist and Neil Lane jewellery

Verdict: It is so nice to see such a vibrant colour on the red carpet, as well as Roland Mouret who just designs the most stunning of gowns and this one is exquisite. Called the ‘Tinea’, I love how sexy this dress is without being revealing, it has a touch of Old Hollywood about it with the draped neckline and streamlined silhouette, and I just adore how it falls of her shoulders.

I thought Amy looked stunning in Valentino Couture at the Golden Globes, I actually preferred the look complete with the cape, however this look for me is just utterly breathtaking and divine.

It it wasn’t for Lupita Nyong’o, Amy would have been my best dressed – I can’t wait to see what she does for the rest of the award season.

Are you a fan of Amy’s Barbie Pink gown?
