Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Valentino & Jaeger-LeCoultre

VF Party Diane Kruger Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Diane Kruger In Valentino &  Jaeger LeCoultre  %tagWho: Diane Kruger

Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014 in West Hollywood, California

Wearing: A sheer lace Valentino Couture gown featuring cape detailing and three-quarter sleeves from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with black heels, a black beaded clutch and her Jaeger-LeCoultre watch

Verdict: It is Diane Kruger’s ability to bring something different to the red carpet that I missed her from the main event. The actress is like a chameleon she never really goes for the same thing twice and really takes fashion risks that nearly always come off.

This gorgeous Valentino Couture was a look that wowed me and really shows that the Vanity Fair party does bring out the best fashion on the night, the stars can be a little more edgy and sexy and this dress has that and more going for it.

There aren’t many actresses that could pull off this vampy elegant look, I think this is where her model body really works well as she can take something from the runway to the red carpet with ease. I know some people won’t like this look, which makes me go why the hell not, because I absolutely love the decadence and texture of the gown and styling.

As well as wearing a fab dress, the actress went for an intricate braided look done by hairstylist Kylee Heath using Morroccanoil products, which was easily one of the best hairdo’s of the night. It is sweet, charming, while still complimenting the edgy, sexy sheer dress.

I know I am bias, I am a little obsessed with Diane Kruger, but this is one flawless look.

Grammy Awards: Katy Perry In Valentino Couture

katy perry grammys Grammy Awards: Katy Perry In Valentino Couture %tag

The Grammy’s were held last night in Los Angeles and as always I found the red carpet to be a little predictable – metallics, shimmering fabrics, tight, tight and a very tight, and the odd quirky look to showcase the musician on the red carpet.

One star I can generally depend on to wow me has to be Katy Perry, do you remember when she wore that gorgeous sky blue Elie Saab gown in 2012, well last night she was a vision in tulle wearing a stunning Valentino Couture gown that might look a little familiar, yep it is one that I featured on my Couture Bride post last week.

Other that the fact it was fresh off the runway, I love that it seemed to have been made for the Grammy Awards with the embroidered musical notes on the tulle skirt. It is fun, elegant and romantic all at the same time and it really does look like a work of art. Apparently this beautiful gown took 1,600 hours to do all the embroidery – the craftsmanship is sublime.

Not content with just one look from Valentino’s spring couture collection, Katy also looked incredible in a shorter red tulle with a feathered serpent to the after party. As much as I love the red carpet gown, and I do, I think this flirty number is my favourite – I love the rich colour of the dress and the snake motif. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!katy perry grammys valentino Grammy Awards: Katy Perry In Valentino Couture %tagMadonna ralph lauren Grammy Awards: Katy Perry In Valentino Couture %tag

Another great look I just had to share was Madonna wearing a wide-leg Ralph Lauren tuxedo with a black felt gaucho hat, a sparkly fingerless glove, and a grill, yep if you saw her interview on E! she showed off her mouth jewellery.

If I can forget about the grill, as I hate them, I love, love, love this mannish look from Madonna. I am a huge fan of girlies in suits and this one will be remembered I am sure. Also no-one else works the red carpet like Madonna!!!

Were you a fan of Katy Perry’s and Madonna’s looks at last night’s Grammy Awards?
