Women In Suits: Léa Seydoux Rocks Prada In Cannes


So my love of masculine tailoring on women seems to have turned ‘Women in Suits’ into a regular feature, it has its own category tag and everything, as well as its own Pinterest board. I really just can’t get enough, it started with me just loving women in tuxedos and now it is any androgynous chic look, with French actress Léa Seydoux wearing a blue Prada suit during the Cannes Film Festival being the latest celebrity to capture my attention.

What makes this a great look, other than the incredible fit of this masculine double-breasted suit, has to be the gorgeous blue hue that makes it feminine and looks like it was made to be teamed with her strawberry-blonde hair. Adding the crisp white shirt, the maroon Prada heels, chic dark nails and smouldering make-up really just completes this amazing look – I love it from head-to-toe and kind of want to be here!!!

It is casual in its colour, it is smart because it is a matching two-piece and the fact she is wearing it buttoned up, and it is also feminine and flirty with the fun heels and cool make-up – this is one great look.

Do you love Léa Seydoux’s Prada suit as much as I do?

BAFTAs 2014: Lupita Nyong’o & Angelina Jolie – My Best Dressed


This year the EE British Academy Film Awards fell in the middle of London Fashion Week so I felt like I kind of missed the whole excitement of the red carpet, seeing it back in pictures is just not the same, especially when it seems to have produced the best fashion in a number of years.

It was sad that both Jennifer Lawrence and Sandra Bullock didn’t attend, I would have loved to see what they would have worn, but I was glad to see that ’12 Years A Slave” actress Lupita Nyong’o was once again on top form in this stunning emerald-green silk Christian Dior haute couture strapless gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection.

Everything about this gown was beautifully and was easily my best dressed gown of the night and it was nice to see that Lupita really did come to London to impress. I loved it all from the jewel colour to the metallic belt and arm cuffs to the dramatic train – simply gorgeous. I really couldn’t have asked for more from her and seeing this gown has made me excited to see what she wears for the Oscars.

Another look that caught my eye was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in near-identical outfits. Not quite as cool as Madonna and her son at the Grammy’s, but I love Angie in this menswear-inspired look from Saint Laurent – it is so chic and sophisticated.

What makes this look great is the styling, I love that she wore her white shirt slightly unbuttoned to add a causal vibe to the look, which looked perfect with the untied black bow tie. Finishing off this look were those black Saint Laurent heels – the patent shine really worked with the tuxedo-stripe to the trousers. Another great look for my women in suits Pinterest board!!!

I really think that Angelina pull off this tuxedo better than Brad Pitt in his Valentino – what do you think?

Who was your best dressed?

Berlin Film Festival: Tilda Swinton In Schiaparelli Haute Couture


Who: Tilda Swinton

Where: At the opening ceremony of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival for her new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Wearing: A black wool tuxedo, paired with white silk chiffon ruffles and a white matte silk charmeuse man’s shirt all from the Schiaparelli Haute Couture spring 2014 collection, teamed with a striking gold cocktail ring and the Schiaparelli feathered sandal flip flops as seen on the runway.

Verdict: I love, love, love Tilda Swinton, not only is she a woman who totally knows how to work a suit, but I adore how she really does beat to her own drum by wearing the most amazing and daring fashion on the red carpet.

What I love the most about this look is how she really compliments the mannish tailoring with her slouchy posture and those regal ruffles on the blouse – it makes it chic, sophisticated, and edgy all at the same time – everything you expect from Tilda.

As well as being a fan of her masculine red carpet look, I love how she softens the impact with the styling of the striking cocktail ring and her fun barrel-curl hair-do and bright red lippy and nails, it really works to tie in the whole look.

The only thing I am not so sure about has to be those feathered flip-flops, I get that they were part of the runway look, but other than the fact her feet must have been freezing – it is winter in Berlin, the quirky footwear doesn’t add anything to this look for me. But on the other-hand I so appreciate that they are so Tilda, come on only she could pull of these sandals.

What are your thoughts on this quirky and daring red carpet look?

Women In Suits: Anne Hathaway Rocks Viktor & Rolf


My love of masculine styling on women is growing, there is something about a tuxedo jacket paired with slim trousers and high heels that I love to see, especially on the red carpet. At the weekend Madonna wore a wide-leg Ralph Lauren tux to the Grammys, which was one of my best looks, and over the past few months we have seen everyone from Kim Basinger to Julianna Margulies really show how hot the look can be.

Well this week I added another actress to the long list of women in suits to my growing Pinterest board with the lovely Anne Hathaway rocking a studded silk-lapel Viktor & Rolf blazer with slim-fit pants and a simple black tee to the Hollywood Stands Up To Cancer event.

This look from the Viktor & Rolf spring/summer 2014 collection is styled to perfection, I love the laid-back vibe of the look with the addition of the slouchy tee and the turned-up cuffs with the touch of elegance of the Lady Dior handbag and bow-front heels. Basically just a classy look that works as well as on the red carpet on a celebrity as it would to work or lunch with friends.

There has been a more casual feel to Anne Hathaway lately, maybe that’s to do with her new stylist Penny Lovell, who also works with Rose Byrne, but it will be interesting to see what the actress rocks to the Oscars in March.

Work the look:
