Met Gala 2014: Battle Of The Pink

After the disappointed red carpet at last year’s Punk-themed Met Gala I was thrilled that this year’s event was celebrating Charles James the master courtier that really understood drama, sculpture, class, and what makes a great red carpet dress – generally something huge that makes a statement – so I am pleased that the celebs attendees really honoured his vision.

One of my favourite looks had to be Reese Witherspoon in this strapless Barbie-pink Stella McCartney gown. Everything from the colour to the sculptured take on the sweetheart neckline to the way it contoured her body and the slight train, everything about this look is perfection.

If the dress wasn’t enough to make me squeal with excited her Hollywood glamour hair and make-up sure would, the Oscar-winning star was simple flawless, I just loved the matching hot pink lips. I can’t believe that this is Reese’s first time at the Met Gala – this is a great debut look.


There were many hues of pink on the night and two came from Stella McCartney, to complement Reese’s hot pink gown, the gorgeous Kate Bosworth looked divine in this dusky pink slinky spaghetti strap dress. Her statuesque model figure really pulls off this great dress, which has sexy little cut-outs under the bust. But as much as I love the dress it is the styling of the accessories and hair-do that I adore the most – I love that she wasn’t afraid to add sparkle!!!


Combining an element of both Reese’s and Kate’s looks was Emma Stone who look modern, young and fabulous in this striking-yet-simple custom two-piece pink and magenta, colour-block Thakoon ensemble. What I love is that it isn’t a ballgown, I know that was kind of the theme of the night and this look might not quite have cut it, but for me Emma showed a contemporary look that still honoured Charles James with the flowing wrap skirt. Plus with hair like that she definitely had to be featured – love, love, love!!!

One last pink look that caught my attention was Taylor Swift who wore a custom blush pink embellished satin Oscar de la Renta gown teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery. While the front of this gown was exquisite, well it was crafted by Oscar de la Renta and embroidered with gold sequins, pearl beads and rose metallic leaves, for me this gown was all about the drama in the back – check out that fabulous bow and train. Stunning in an Old Hollywood glamour kind of way.

It is hard to choose who wins the battle of the pink, but I think Reese in that stunning hot pink number just gets it. Who was your favourite girl in pink?

ACM Awards 2014: Taylor Swift In J. Mendel

Who: Taylor Swift

Where: At the 49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena  in Las Vegas

Wearing: A custom J. Mendel silk crepe ivory top featuring cut-out panels to the shoulders and a black asymmetrical skirt with thigh-high split, teamed with gold jewellery, black Casadei strappy heels and a gold and black clutch

Verdict: Normally at these type of events Taylor works something romantic, normally glittery, with a very girlie vibe as the country star darling that she is. Don’t get me wrong she always looks stunning, she is gorgeous, but I really love that she went for something different with this custom J. Mendel look.

Opting for just the right amount of skin in this cut-out crop top and thigh-high split skirt this is a very edgy look for Taylor, maybe it is an attempt to stop people calling her style boring, or maybe she just decided to try something new – whatever made her go for this custom midriff showing look I am pleased she did.

As well as loving the look, I adore the styling the black and gold accessories works perfectly and those earrings are incredible. Also top marks to her glam squad her hair and make-up is flawless – she really is a stunner.

What do you think of Taylor’s latest red carpet look?

Golden Globes 2013: Taylor Swift Wows In Donna Karan Atelier

Taylor swift donna karan Golden Globes 2013: Taylor Swift Wows In Donna Karan Atelier %tag

Who: Taylor Swift

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A dark plum taffeta Donna Karan Atelier gown that features a low back, dramatic train, and panels in mesh ombre from nude to dark plum which contour the body, teamed with statement Lorraine Schwartz blackened platinum, diamond and ruby earrings

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – seriously this girl needs to get dumped more often as being newly single has really made her red carpet looks better.

Donna Karan knows how to make gorgeous gowns but she also understands young starlets and this is modern, fresh and sexy and is easily Taylor’s best ever look. Everything from the colour to the sexy low back and the mesh panel down the side – I am so pleased that this dress made it onto the red carpet as it is truly stunning.

I also have to point out her statement earrings, which was another trend from this year’s Golden Globes red carpet, they perfectly match the dress and occassion.

But what makes this look gorgeous is her attitude she really worked it on the red carpet if she hadn’t this dress wouldn’t have worked.

Great job Donna Karan you’ve made me a fan of Taylor Swift!!!

People’s Choice Awards: Taylor Swift In Ralph Lauren Collection

taylor swift ralphlauren Peoples Choice Awards: Taylor Swift In Ralph Lauren Collection %tag

Who: Taylor Swift, who pick up the Favourite Country Artist award

Where: At the People Choice Awards 2013, which were held last night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A floor-sweeping white Ralph Lauren Collection gown featuring cap-sleeves and a plunging neckline, teamed with turquoise drop earrings and smoky eyes

Verdict: Wow, Taylor Swift came ready for being crowned best dressed in this stunning Ralph Lauren Collection gown. This is a look that I would have expected more from someone at the Golden Globes on Sunday than at the People’s Choice but I am certainly not complaining as it is simply gorgeous.

Considering the rumours, the country singer doesn’t look like she is in the middle of a break-up from One Direction’s Harry, and if she is this simple-yet-stunning gown is really showing him what he is missing.

I just love the simple silhouette of this gown, it fits her perfectly and really is showing off her incredible figure, while still keeping it youthful and fresh with the daring plunging neckline that truly makes the dress a show stopper.

But a look isn’t just about the dress, the reason why Taylor is my best dressed is that everything came together perfectly. Everything is simply stunning from her gorgeous turquoise drop earrings to her flawless make-up and hair. I think 2013 is going to a great year for her!!!

Billboard Awards 2012: Taylor Swift In Elie Saab

BillboardTaylorSwift Billboard Awards 2012: Taylor Swift In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Singer Taylor Swift

Where: At the Billboard Awards 2012 held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas

Wearing: A sleeveless red chiffon Elie Saab gown with a lace bodice from the pre-fall 2012 collection, paired with Neil Lane jewellery

Verdict: Music awards always brings out some interesting fashion choices, there was a Cinderella moment for Carrie Underwood in Oscar de la Renta, a match your dress to your hair moment again from Katy Perry in Blumarine, and even a bizarre Jean Paul Gaultier tuxedo dress that Miley Cryus wore that just look three sizes too big.

I have to say thank god for Elie Saab as otherwise I don’t think I would have bothered covering the awards. Normally I not a fan of Taylor Swift’s red carpet looks, generally there’s too many sparkles, but this gown has an elegance about it that I truly love, I just wish she would have worked the one seen on the runway which had a thigh-high split.

I also think I am a fan of her sleek straight hair, I love curls, but her straight hair is nearly a carbon-copy to the runway model and works better with the dress.

Are you a fan of this red Elie Saab gown?

British fashion designer Jenny Packham dresses shined on the red carpet last night at  the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles. Nashville sweetheart Taylor Swift looked stunning in this white tube-mini dress, teamed with Christian Louboutin heels and a matching clutch. Of course she didn’t leave empty handed as Taylor picked up best Female Artist. Well she doesn’t seem to go to awards lately without winning something!!! Teen beauty Demi Lovato went for a ruffle cascade blue mini from the Cruise collection, which showed off her assets well – particular her top half (who knew!!!). Teamed with that gorgeous necklace she has definitely blossomed into a woman.
