Golden Globes 2013: Thandie Newton In Giles


Who: Thandie Newton

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

Wearing: A lavender lace GILES mini-dress embellished with Swarovski crystals from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with matching coloured ankle-strap heels and a silver box clutch

Verdict: While most went for floor-sweeping gowns Thandie showed off her fabulous pins in this sexy mini dress by British designer Giles Deacon.

Normally I would feel that this dress was probably suited to the People’s Choice Awards or MTV Movie Awards but for some reason I really thought it worked. Maybe it is because it is Thandie, who is known for taking risks on the red carpet, or maybe I am just being bias as it is a London Fashion Week designer but I really love this mini-dress.

The colour is divine, there was a lot of nude, red and black, so this lavender lace number really stood out, then there is the length if anyone can go short it is Thandie – her legs are incredible, and then there are the Swarovski sparkles.

For me this mini had just enough glitz for it to work at a big award ceremony – what do you think?

British Fashion Awards: Thandie Newton wears Peter Pilotto

Who: British actress Thandie Newton

Where: At the British Fashion Awards at The Savoy in London

Wearing: A blue print Peter Pilotto dress with cut-out detailing from the spring/summer 2011 collection paired with Nicholas Kirkwood heels

Verdict: Lets start with things I love: the print against the contrasting textured panel is stunning, then add in the high neckline and the keyhole cut-out detailing and you have a gorgeous dress. However, then you scan your eye down and see the hemline and I just don’t think it works. Of course Thandie can pull off any look and she still looks stunning I just don’t think it works.

Louis Vuitton: Bond Street Maison Party

As predicted Louis Vuitton’s new flagship store on Bond Street was the hottest ticket in town last night, with Gwynie, Elle Macpherson, Kirsten Dunst, Thandie Newton, Pixie Geldof and Alexa Chung presenting the life streaming via Facebook.

The new store opens to the public on Friday and apparently the launch cost more than £2.5 million – just going past the window made me excited. Well of course all the celebs came out to support Marc Jacobs and they all came glammed up in Louis Vuitton of course. Here are my top four frocks – with Gemma taking the top spot in this gorgeous pink blush full skirt dress.
