Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Kate Hudson In Atelier Versace

Oscars-Versace-kate-hudsonWho: Actress Kate Hudson

Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A pale silver custom Atelier Versace gown with a plunging neckline and adorned with Swarovski crystals from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with a matching cape top and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: Wowzer, Kate Hudson always brings it on the red carpet. Just like Diane Kruger, I have a bit, OK a lot of a girl crush on Kate as she is simply always flawless and this stunning look is another example of how beautiful she is.

This is one gorgeous gown, I love its old school Hollywood glamour vibe, from the liquid metallic shimmer to the encrusted beads to the dramatic draped cape atop of her shoulders, this is a show-stopping outfit that is most certainly one of my best dressed looks of the night.

This dress marries sexy with the plunging neckline with an elegance and glamour of the colour, the cape, and the exquisite hair and make-up. I am seriously in love with this look.

Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous.

Jewellery Loving: Atelier Swarovski Christopher Kane SS14


If there is one thing I love more than anything else, well except my boyfriend, family, friends and Barbie of course, has to be sparkles. There is something about a gorgeous piece of jewellery, whether it is a stunning pair of earrings, an arm stacked high with bracelets, or a statement necklace, jewellery can totally change-up any look as well as your mood.

I recently checked out the Atelier Swarovski spring/summer 2014 collection, which each season ties up with a number of designers, including Christopher Kane and Maison Martin Margiela **more to come on their amazing designs**, and I just had to share Kane’s updated iconic crystal mesh ‘Bolster’ collection, which has been reworked in new seasonal colour ways.

Not only is the design simple but I love how timeless the pieces are and no matter what colour each sparkles so beautifully. My favourite piece has to be the twist bolster necklace, where hundreds of individually set crystals have been combined and entwined to create a striking necklace, and finished off with a chunky clasp.

Starting at £210 for a Bolster bracelet to £700 for the Twist Bolster necklace, this collection isn’t cheap – but just think how chic the pieces would look on. I have to be honest I hope Santa is reading this as it would be amazing to unwrap a piece on Christmas morning!!!

Teen Vogue Party: Holland Roden & Kiernan Shipka In Emporio Armani

Armani-Holland-RodenWho: Teen Wolf star Holland Roden

Where: At the 2013 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party in Los Angeles

Wearing: A purple Emporio Armani double-breasted blazer dress with a notch lapel, teamed with jewellery from David Webb and Effy, and finished off with Rupert Sanderson heels

Verdict: Holland Roden has really been surprising me of late on the red carpet, first we had that gorgeous Naeem Khan look at the MTV VMAs featuring an open ballskirt over cigarette pants, then there was the sexy Georges Chakra Couture dress wore to a pre-Emmy party, and now we have this striking double-breasted blazer dress.

I love red hair teamed with purple and this dress is sexy and sophisticated while still being youthful. I love the shorter length and long sleeves, though I think it would have also worked as a sleeveless dress. The whole look works perfectly with those black and white Rupert Sanderson heels and dramatic eyes.



Who: Mad Men starlet Kiernan Shipka

Wearing: An Emporio Armani black cape paired with iridescent paisley print trousers, teamed with a ruby red Swarovski crystal clutch, and black heels

Verdict: For me, Kiernan Shipka is another star on the rise, along with Holland, Hailee Steinfeld, and Dakota Fanning. At the Primetime Emmy’s Kiernan really shined in her gorgeous Delpozo frock, and this Emporio Armani two-piece is another stunning and well put together look.

Whereas most of the other starlets went for dresses, I love that Kiernan stood out from the pack in these incredible paisley print ankle-grazing trousers. They totally work with her chic black cape, I  love the three-quarter sleeves, and the added pop of colour in her clutch bag rounds off the look perfectly.

Which look do you prefer Holland’s double-breasted blazer dress or Kiernan’s statement trousers?

Elton John Oscar Party: Nina Dobrev In Naeem Khan


Who: Nina Dobrev

Where: At 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party held in Hollywood

Wearing: A black and white printed Naeem Khan gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Chopard jewellery, a Swarovski envelope clutch and Barbara Bui shoes

Verdict: I love how Nina Dobrev and her stylist Ilaria Urbinati keep on getting it so spot on, this gorgeous bold printed Naeem Khan gown is incredible and was one of my favourite looks of the whole Oscar weekend.

This look is giving me everything I want to see in a red carpet appearance – it has drama in that bold monochrome print, which is exquisite, it has an elegance about it with the high neck, a sexiness with the plunging open back, a delicateness with those diamond drop earrings from Chopard, and a youthful feel with her cute high ponytail.

I just can’t help gush – this look is just simply sensational – I love it!!!
