Oscars 2015: Reese Witherspoon In Tom Ford

Who: Reese Witherspoon

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: An ice blue silk georgette Tom Ford gown with black velvet off-the-shoulder detailing, teamed with Tiffany & Co. diamond jewellery

Verdict: I don’t think Reese Witherspoon has put a foot wrong this award season, she really has played the American sweetheart well, I just was hoping for more tonight.

Don’t get me wrong I like this Tom Ford gown, it fits her perfectly, it is a timeless, classic silhouette that always looks good on her, and I even like the colour on her, but it didn’t wow me like I want to be at the Oscars. 

What I do love though has to be her hair, how does she get it that shiny, and her make-up, flawless, and I love her jewellery.

Golden Globes 2015: Amy Adams In Atelier Versace

Who: Golden Globe-winning actress Amy Adams

Where: At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A custom-made, one-shoulder Atelier Versace gown in periwinkle embellished with a Swarovski crystal detail on the back, teamed with Tiffany jewellery

Verdict: As soon as I saw Amy Adams hit the red carpet I was blown away, I was floored not only by the colour, I am a little obsessed with this dusky blue/grey hue against her red hair, but the exquisite draping is just pure elegance.

A lot of my Twitter followers felt that this look was safe, but for me I loved the elegance and sophistication, I was actually a little surprised that Versace could design a dress that wasn’t overly sexy, instead it has a confidence about it that Amy just rocked and look gorgeous in.

What do you think – did Amy play it safe?

Oscars 2014: Amy Adams In Gucci Première & Tiffany & Co

Oscars-Gucci-Amy-AdamsWho: Amy Adams

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

Wearing: A strapless navy blue custom Gucci Première silk crepe tuxedo-inspired gown featuring a fitted bodice and a subtle train, teamed with Tiffany & Co jewellery

Verdict: Granted, not my best of Amy Adams looks this award season, but there is no denying how stunning this custom gown is. Even though this dress didn’t wow me like some other looks tonight, I still loved how statuesque Amy looked in it and I think that was down to the incredible fit of the gown as well as that tuxedo-inspired bodice.

What did make this look for me had to be those striking Tiffany & Co earrings with rhodochrosites, lapis lazuli and turquoise from the 2014 Tiffany Blue Book collection. It was a one of the biggest trends wearing statement jewellery and these dramatic drop earrings were the perfect addition to this structured dress an sweeping up-do.

Were you a fan of Amy Adams’ red carpet look?

My Style: Summer Walk By The River


my-style-deck-chair-
This weekend I embraced the sunny weather, because let’s be honest we don’t know how long it is going to last for. On Saturday, I generally sat around the garden, lounged around reading magazines, occasionally helped with the gardening, and munched on BBQ food, which kind of spur me to get up early on Sunday for a walk down the River Cam.

Living in South Cambridgeshire I get the best of both world’s I am not too far from London, no matter what some people think, and I get to explore the gorgeous countryside, quaint towns and adorable villages. One of my favourite villages, and on my wishlist of dream locations to live has to be Grantchester, which is just outside Cambridge.

This is a village that isn’t that big but has three great pubs and an amazing outdoor tea room, which is where we started our Sunday stroll, well I needed to fill up before the walk and I do love lounging about in a deck chair!!!

From there we headed down the river until we came to the edge of Cambridge and headed into town, it took about an hour, we weren’t rushing and it was hot, but it was such a lovely walk. It was fun watching the tourists try their hand at punting, the new canoeists going round in circles, the cute dogs swimming in the river, and the adorable swans.

I always find it hard to decide what to wear on hot days, it is that worry of getting my legs out, wearing something that will reveal my less than stellar body, so I decided to go for a fun floral skirt, tee and bright trainers – easy, casual and comfortable. Although, as it was so hot I am not sure why I opted to wear a black top, such a mistake, I love the loose fit of my boyfriend tee from Primark I just wish I had worn my white one instead.

I also wore my Lulu Guinness watch, which I am obsessed with, and as it has a larger face that my other watches I now have a large tan mark on my left arm!!!

What did you do this weekend to enjoy the sun?

Seaside Style: Bank Holiday Day Trip To Felixstowe

Felixstowe-my-style-14What are Bank Holidays for if not a trip to the seaside, especially when it is sunny, and a chance to top up on ice-cream, candy floss, make sandcastles and play in the arcades. My boyfriend and I like a day trip, and living near Cambridge means we have a lot of gorgeous coastline in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, which isn’t that far away in the car.

Over the years we have done a lot of the beaches in Norfolk including Hunstanton and Cromer so this Bank Holiday we thought we would give Suffolk a try and head on over to Felixstowe, a seaside town we both hadn’t been to before.

Quieter than say Blackpool and Brighton, there is a charm about Felixstowe with its colourful beach huts, sea front gardens and miles of beach to stroll down while eating an ice cream. And in the sunshine this was such a great day for testing out my new Canon 650d camera and having my style snaps taken by some palm trees makes it look somewhere tropical and warm.

What did you do this Bank Holiday?

Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball: Kate Hudson In Reem Acra

Kate-hudson-reem-acraWho: Kate Hudson

Where: At the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City

Wearing: A Tiffany-blue Reem Acra gown featuring a sweetheart neckline, bow-tie detailing to the waist, and a thigh-high split from the Resort 2013 collection, teamed with Tiffany & Co. jewellery, Jimmy Choo nude peep-toe ‘Crown’ platform heels, and a metallic textured leather ‘Ava’ box clutch by Tiffany & Co.

Verdict: What I love about Kate Hudson is that she always ups the glamour stakes on a red carpet and this inspired Tiffany-blue gown is totally divine. There is a an old-school Hollywood glamour about this incredible look, maybe it is the pale blue colour of the gown, maybe it is the sweetheart neckline, or maybe it is just a combination of the knock-out gown, her hair side-swept into gorgeous waves, and her seductive but not OTT Angelina Jolie pose, showing off just the right amount of leg!!!

I also have to give her credit for not over-doing the jewellery, which must have been hard having the pick of all of Tiffany & Co., but her pear-shaped morganite and diamond earrings are simply exquisite and worked better than if she had chosen a necklace, and looked perfect with her diamond bracelet and pink diamond ring, all from the 2013 Blue Book Collection. I can’t help but swoon over Tiffany jewels

Kate always seems to get it so right and this has to be one of the most gorgeous looks I have seen from the blonde beauty in a while – everything about it screams glamour, which surely is the point for a Tiffany & Co. ball.

Are you a fan of Kate Hudson’s latest red carpet look?

Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball: Carey Mulligan In Victoria Beckham

Carey-mulligan-victoria-beckhamWho: Carey Mulligan

Where: At the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City

Wearing: A black Le Smoking tuxedo trouser suit by Victoria Beckham, featuring slashed cape-style sleeves and deep-V satin lapels from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Tiffany jewels from the Blue Book Collection and black pointed Mary-Jane Saint Laurent heels

Verdict: With nearly everyone else at the Tiffany ball opting for flowing floor-length gowns it was refreshing to see that Carey Mulligan opted for something a little different, a bold masculine look in a chic Le Smoking tux.

Not only was this a bold choice, the slash is very revealing adding a sexy touch to the masculine tailored look, but I have to be honest I was a little surprised to see it on Carey. However, I love to be surprised, and I really did love her look, which was finished off perfectly with a pair of delicate Tiffany drop earrings.

There is a big but though, why the tired face, it looks like she isn’t wearing any make-up in a bad way, which really doesn’t make any sense – why get dressed up, add some bling courtesy of Tiffany’s and then forget to refresh your face with a little make-up.

Is it just me? Is her barley-there-could-be-missing make-up throwing off this whole look? Or do you think the nude make-up and minimal updo adds an edge to the masculine Le Smoking tux look?
