Cannes 2012: Jada Pinkett Smith Photocalls For Madagascar 3

JadaVersace2 Cannes 2012: Jada Pinkett Smith Photocalls For Madagascar 3 %tag

Jada Pinkett Smith has brought what I can only describe as the J-Lo factor to Cannes, and what I mean by this is putting together fierce looking outfits together with a flawless sexy face to promote her new flick. Fresh from promoting Men In Black 3 at her hubbie’s side, Jada did not one but two photocalls for her movie, Madagascar 3, and she really made an effort.

Her first look was insanely fierce, working a sexy strapless cream studded Versace dress from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, which fell just below-the-knee, which she paired with a gorgeous pair of Salvatore Ferragamo peep-toes. For a normal photocall this look would have been way too much, but for Cannes in the sunshine, I don’t know why but it just works.

For her second photocall of the day, Jada went for a more elegant-yet-sexy look in this divine emerald-green chiffon Alberta Ferretti floor-length gown with a deep neckline from the spring/summer 2012 collection. A completely different feel to the Versace, but still sexy and flawless, but I have to admit I prefer this gown just because of the flowing nature of the silhouette and the colour is exquisite. I also love the addition of the gold cuff.

After these two amazing looks for just photocalls surely a dramatic couture or custom-made gown is on the cards for the premiere!!!

Cover Loving: Crystal Renn For Vogue Mexico

VogueMexicoCrystalRen Cover Loving: Crystal Renn For Vogue Mexico %tag

Wow, what a great cover of Crystal Renn for Vogue Mexico, this has definitely added this Latin magazine to my huge stack of international mags. Not only is the cover striking, don’t you think it radiates heat?

Am I being silly because as all it has done here in the UK is rain – but don’t you think the combination of that vibrant Salvatore Ferragamo printed dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with the bold accessories and her fabulous pose makes this one hot cover?

Snapped by Nagi Sakai, the accompanying editorial is just as strong as the cover, I am loving all the Prada, Miu Miu, and Dolce & Gabbana – the styling from Sarah Gore-Reeves is exquisite.

The one thing I am worried about is that everyone will just be talking about how slim Crystal has gotten rather than what an absolutely fantastic model she is – I can’t imagine anyone not loving this editorial spread I am in need of some sun after looking at it!!!

Do you think Crystal wore this Prada playsuit better than Jennifer Lawrence who wore it on the cover of Glamour recently?

Cover Loving: Megan Fox Ladylike For Jalouse

JalouseMegan1 Cover Loving: Megan Fox Ladylike For Jalouse %tag

It is fair to say that Megan Fox is generally sporting lingerie or a bikini in most of her magazine covers, I don’t think I have ever seen her look so ladylike before, and I thank Jalouse for making my day. Jalouse is one of my favourite French magazines their editorial spreads are so impressive and creative and I am excited about the April issue after seeing these snaps of Megan Fox taken by Alexei Hay.

I am not saying that I love everything about the cover, the rubber gloves are creeping me out slightly, but what I do love is the ladylike Emporio Armani jacket, the sky blue colour is gorgeous against her skintone, as well as the Philip Treacy hat, the side braid, and those gorgeous Harry Winston and Bulgari jewels. Seriously chic styling, oh and her face is flawless.

The rest of the editorial is just as amazing, I love the old school Hollywood styling, the glam make-up, the tears, the crazy amount of hats, the lashings of jewels, and it has made me realise how much I have been missing Megan!!!

Vertu Launch: Rosie Huntington Whiteley In Richard Nicoll

rosievertu Vertu Launch: Rosie Huntington Whiteley In Richard Nicoll %tag

Who: Model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington Whiteley

Where: At the Vertu Global Launch Of The ‘Constellation’ at Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan, Italy

Wearing:  A corset bodice top teamed with a metallic two-tone skirt, both from Richard Nicoll’s Resort 2012 collection, paired with navy Salvatore Ferragamo heels

Verdict: I do love it when British designers other than the big names make an entrance on the red carpet and I love this quirky Richard Nicoll look on Rosie. On first look at this outfit it kind of has a Dolce & Gabbana look about it with the corset bodice top and the mixed fabrics, but it looks simply divine on Rosie’s model figure. What I absolutely love about this look is the simple jewellery, the highlight being a delicate pendant necklace.

Somerset House: Masters of Style – Italian Fashion

main Somerset House: Masters of Style   Italian Fashion %tag

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to enjoy a special preview of the new exhibition at Somerset House, Masters of Style: Celebrating The Stories Behind Italian Fashion, with the legend that is Colin McDowell who was completely lovely and has done a great job as curator of this fab exhibit.

The photographic exhibition, sponsored by Peroni Nastro Azzurro brings together the archives of six Italian fashion houses, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Missoni and Prada, to celebrate the passion, flair and creativity of Italian style, and I just loved it.

What I loved most about this exhibition were the details. I adored the layout, the white pods and their transparent divides made me feel like I was walking through winding narrow streets in Italy, where if you looked through your eye captured another image. The exhibition is more than just photos, which on its own is amazing as each designer personally chose their favourite images, and there is commentary from Colin, the designer, and the photographers, giving real insight into those defining moments.

I took a few snaps of my favourite shots. But trust me you have to take in the whole exhibition you will love it!! Be quick though as this amazing display of iconic pictures is only on until August 14, book your tickets here.

Gucci

This advert from 1967, chosen by Frida Giannini, “Made in Italy – always at the heart of Gucci”, just says everything you need to know about Gucci for me. I love the quality of the handbag against the iconic backdrop.

Prada

The Prada section was one of my favourites, and I have chosen this shot by Albert Watson from the S/S 1989. What I love about this advert is you are drawn to the bridge of her back, followed by the silk dress, and then the logo embossed purse, I really love the sensual luxury of the story, I bet it would have looked amazing in a magazine.

Missoni

From the Missoni collection I have gone for this gorgeous illustration by Antonio Lopez from A/W 1983-84, I have to be honest this was the hardest to choose, as every single  one was so lovely and bright. By including Missoni it really does add something different to the exhibition, next to the minimal vibe of Armani, the heritage of Dolce & Gabbana, and the sexy pictures of Gucci, and the colours of Missoni breaks it up a bit.

Dolce & Gabbana

From the A/W 1989-90 campaign shot by Steven Meisel, I love how these images of Isabella Rossellini portray the drama and emotion that I love from Dolce & Gabbana adverts. I chose these pics as to me they really spoke to me about the heritage of what the brand is known for. Also, does it get more Italian than a woman being emotional with her hands?

Armani

I find that fashion brands fuse closely with cinema, and this shot captured by Peter Lindbergh for the A/W 1992-93 campaign is perfection.

“I am a huge fan of cinema, and sometimes an outfit suggests drama. This black dress is a case in point. But for me drama is not about excessive styling or decoration, but about the way a piece interacts with its wear – how it hands and moves, what it suggests,” Giorgio Armani.

Salvatore Ferragamo

Whereas the other fashion houses displayed mostly pictures with models, what I loved about Ferragamo is that their campaigns concentrate on the quality and luxury of its accessories. How amazing is this shot from the S/S 1997 campaign taken by Giovanni Gastel, I love how the bag has been wrapped in a scarf, the ultimate gift and I want it!!

Who: Actress Emma Stone

Where: At the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar party in West Hollywood, California

Wearing: A multi-coloured swirl print Chanel Couture gown with a duel-length hem, paired with plum Salvatore Ferragamo heels

Verdict: I am loving how Emma Stone can go from minimal chic at the Golden Globes, to this amazing Chanel Couture gown. This is a gorgeous dress, quirky, fun and completely stunning and one of the best of the night. I saw that a lot of people weren’t loving her hair – but I adore her with bangs, and I think this dress works with messy locks.

I am loving this look from head-to-toe. Completely gorgeous.
