My Top Five SS15 Campaigns

My Top Five SS15 Campaigns

Normally for me it is the autumn/winter campaigns that really brings the fashion alive, maybe I say that because for me the winter collections are what I love to see on the catwalk, but these five fashion houses are really making me love spring/summer with their incredible fashion ads.

There is a stripped back feel to all the campaigns this season, I don’t mean that there isn’t as much money pouring into them or that they are less creative, just that the clothes are doing the talking rather than a celebrity face, well except Julia Roberts, who even appears in complete contrast to her perfume ambassadors days in a make-up free shot for the Givenchy campaign. There is a hint of darkness in some, especially Valentino and Prada, as well as oozing coolness from the likes of Chloé and Coach.

Editorial Loving: Vogue Paris – Real-Life Designer Barbie Dolls

It has been a while since I have actually posted something on my blog that hasn’t had something to do with my wedding, sorry about that but I hope you understand that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I just had to share. So, before I bombard you with photographs from my UK celebrations that fingers crossed you all want to see, I thought I would showcase this amazing editorial from the latest issue of Vogue Paris with real-life designer Barbie dolls.

London Film Festival: Keira Knightley In Valentino

London Film Festival: Keira Knightley In Valentino

LFF-Keira-knightley-valenti

Who: Keira Knightley

Where: At the opening night gala screening of “The Imitation Game” during the 58th BFI London Film Festival at Odeon Leicester Square, London

Wearing: A gold lace haute couture Valentino gown from the autumn/winter 2014 couture collection, teamed with red Charlotte Olympia heels and David Morris earrings

Verdict: One thing you are guaranteed with Keira Knightley is elegance and she certainly delivers that in this gorgeous embroidered gold lace tiered couture gown. I love everything about this gown, from the colour to the romantic lace embroidery to the long-sleeves, however I am not frilled by those red suede heels with this look.

As well as adoring the gown, I have to gush over her incredible pink and white diamond Pagoda earrings from David Morris, aren’t they just divine.

I also couldn’t help think that if this gown was in white how it would make an exquisite wedding gown – romantic, modern and stunning. I know, I have weddings on the brain, but I just think it would be perfect for a bride wanting romance and glam on her big day.

Are you a fan of Keira’s gold luxe lace Valentino gown?

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

VF-Party-Diane-KrugerWho: 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.
