Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Amy Adams Wears Barbie Pink

amy adams roland mouret Critics Choice Movie Awards: Amy Adams Wears Barbie Pink %tag

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?

When you think of your Sky TV box, you probably think grey, black, boring, and a little drab, well Sky have teamed up with a four fashion names, Giles Deacon, Roland Mouret, Sophie Dahl and Kit Neale to reinvent their Sky+HD boxes and I have to be honest I want them all.

We have the gorgeous moody floral design inspired by drama from Roland Mouret, the cute and girlie Minnie Mouse adorning Giles Deacon’s design, a fabulous lobster print from hot new menswear designer Kit Neale, and model Sophie Dahl was inspired by the twenties and thirties for her floral illustrations. I love that each one comes with a matching remote!!!

BAFTA Awards: Jennifer Garner In Roland Mouret

BAFTA j garner rolandmouret BAFTA Awards: Jennifer Garner In Roland Mouret %tagWho: Jennifer Garner

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A monochrome Roland Mouret ‘Alava’ gown from the spring/summer 2013 collection, featuring an architectural peplum and sash, teamed with a Roger Vivier clutch, diamond drop earrings and a bracelet

Verdict: Wow, Jennifer Garner really has been a stylish wife during this award season supporting her hubbie Ben Affleck, who last night took home the Best Director and Best Film BAFTAs for his film Argo. I really have enjoyed her return to the red carpet and this exquisite, structured and sophisticated Roland Mouret gown looked incredible on her last night.

There were a lot of monochrome looks and this was by far my favourite, I love the architectural detailing around the waist, the sash really does clinched in her waist, and what I adore is that you wouldn’t even know it was cold and snowy as she doesn’t let it bother her one bit.

Finishing her amazing look was a gorgeous up-do, diamond jewellery and of her flawless make-up.

I seriously can’t wait to see her Oscar look!!!

Who: Jessica Chastain

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A cobalt blue asymmetrical structured Roland Mouret column gown, with origami pleated draping detail to the bodice, teamed with Harry Winston earrings and bracelet

Verdict: There was a lot of black and monochrome styles last night from the likes of Anne Hathaway, SJP, Emila Fox, Gemma Arterton, Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Garner, Thandie Newton and Alicia Vikander, so when I spied a pop of colour on last night’s BAFTA red carpet I was overjoyed and one of my favourites had to be Jessica Chastain’s gorgeous Roland Mouret gown.

This dress fitted her perfectly, the blue was divine against her hair colour, and I loved that she added a red lippy – this was Hollywood glamour at its very best and I am so pleased that she braved the snowy conditions.

Wow, what a night I had last night, I got to see the amazing Fyodor Golan scoop the coveted Fashion Fringe prize, joining the likes of Basso & Brooke, Erdem, Jena.Theo and last year’s winner Corrie Nielsen, and oh did they deserve it. I had the pleasure of meeting all three finalists a couple of weeks ago and I really took a shine to the lovely Golan Frydman and Fyodor Podgorny, and even though on paper I think Nabil Nayal was seen as the favourite, these were the guys I was rooting for.

I had only seen a sneak peek at the collection before the night, but thanks to Fashion Fringe and Very, one of the night’s sponsors, I got to take a backstage tour *more on this in another post – coming soon* before the catwalk show. I was in awe at the detailing of not only of the clothing, which is exquisite but also the thought they had put into their models, running order and the fabulous make-up and styling of the collection.

First down the catwalk and was always the one to beat, everything from the dramatic styling of the hair coming over the models faces into chunky neck braces, to the impressive music, and most of all the show-stopping value of every single piece. The detailing in the texture, silhouette, and the vision; as the show was entitled ‘Flowers of Evil’ and was about the nymph’s painful metamorphosis they even used a more mature model, who strutted her stuff wonderfully.

My favourite dress of the night, which I loved backstage and looked even nicer on the catwalk was this white beauty, with mesh panelling and flower like embellishments, the detailing and the structure of the dress around the hips is just divine and the model looked amazing.

Another strong feature of the collection was the embellished spine detailing down the back of the dresses, I love this floor-skimming gown with its high neck collar and train.

It is hard to believe that Fyodor Golan only launched in 2010, they are such a creative design team that I they were such worthy winners, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them as it can be good!!!

Thanks again to Fashion Fringe and Very.co.uk for being such amazing hosts, I felt a very lucky girl to have front row seats to see such amazing designers showcase their collections.

I will also be posting the pics and reviews of Heidi Leung and Nabil Nayal, as well as the fun I had backstage, so do check back later.

Who: One of my favourite actresses Jennifer Garner

Where: At the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Awards Gala in New York

Wearing: A raspberry pink crepe Roland Mouret dress from the autumn/winter 2010 teamed with black Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: Love the actress, love the colour, love the designer. I have to admit this isn’t going to win any best dressed awards, but hey Jennifer knows what she likes, what suits her and she pulls of this simplest dress with ease and looks stunning.

Also I think this hot pink is Jennifer’s go-to-colour as remember her Stella McCartney look in September?

New Gig: Vickie B For Range Rover

One-fifth of Spice Girls-wife-global brand-mother-solo singer-style icon-fashion designer-Spice Girl reborn-acclaimed fashion designer-and now Creative Design Executive for Range Rover. Kind of impressive timeline for Victoria Beckham, and the most interesting if not bizarre roles that she has taken on.

Announced at the car’s 40th birthday celebrations with Vogue, at The Orangery, Kensington Palace, Vickie B looked stunning in a nude dress from her own AW10 collection, teamed with Brian Atwood nude heels.
Her new role will see her collaborating with the design team on a future special edition Range Rover design, starting with the special edition Range Rover Evoque, which will be unveiled next year at the Paris Car Show, and will be on sale from next Summer.

“Victoria Beckham is a talented British fashion designer and is extremely knowledgeable about great design and trends,” said Gerry McGovern.  “Victoria understands luxury products – she is a Range Rover fan and has been a Range Rover owner for many years. Her fashion business is now in its third year and her designs are loved by critics and bought by many of the most stylish women in the world. I believe this appointment adds a new dimension to my design team as we continue to design products to appeal to a wider audience.”

The swanky bash was attended by over 300 people, including some of Vickie B’s favourite designers, Julien MacDonald, Matthew Williamson and Roland Mouret; as well as model Erin O’Connor, Zara Phillips, Alex James, and Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman who apparently was responsible for introducing Vicky B to the car manufacturer.

“This is a very exciting collaboration. The classic British heritage of Range Rover and the effortless style, quality and beauty is something I truly admire and also what I hope to achieve with my own brand.  I am honoured to take on this role and be part of the creative team.”

Is it too early to say that I want to be on the waiting list? I can’t wait to see what Vickie B comes up with. I have a Freelander at the moment and love Land Rover so a Victoria Beckham designed car would be a stylist upgrade!!
