Doll Loving: A Blake Lively Barbie Doll…Well Sort Of

Barbie Zuhair Murad  Doll Loving:  A Blake Lively Barbie Doll...Well Sort Of %tag

I have always thought that Blake Lively with her model looks and blonde hair would make a great Barbie doll, well it seems so did Mattel, in a round about way. My favourite doll is getting her latest designer makeover and this time it is red carpet favourite Lebanese fashion designer Zuhair Murad, who is known for being one of Jennifer Lopez’s go-to designers.

His work is always edgy, sexy and divine, and one of my favourite looks over the past few years has got to be when Blake Lively wore one of his creations to the ‘Savages’ premiere and channelled Old Hollywood glamour with a striking Art Deco-inspired black and blush mermaid couture gown.

Well it seems that was one of Barbie’s favourites as well as the dramatic striped geometric design has been made pint-size for her limited edition red carpet-ready look. I just wish they had finished off the look with Blake’s retro waves than the boring updo and this Barbie would have been perfection. But that is the tiniest of flaws – I need this collectable doll in my collection.

I wonder what Blake thinks of her mini-me.

Want one of these limited-edition dolls for yourself? The Zuhair Murad Barbie will set you back $75 – you might have to wait a while though as it is already on back order at barbiecollector.com.

Cannes Film Festival: Cheryl Cole In Zuhair Murad

cannes cheryl cole 1 Cannes Film Festival: Cheryl Cole In Zuhair Murad %tag

Who: Cheryl Cole

Where: At the “Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)” premiere during the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival at Grand Theatre Lumiere

Wearing: A long-sleeved maroon and sheer Zuhair Murad gown featuring beaded embellishments from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with De Grisogono jewellery

Verdict: In Cannes as part of her L’Oreal duties, Cheryl Cole looked incredible in this show-stopping gown.  Perfect for Cannes, Cheryl really shined in this sexy sheer maroon dress, everything about it looked amazing on her from the long-sleeves to the heart-shaped sheer panel to the front and the low back and delicate embellishments.

As much as love the gown, for me this look is all about Chezza’s loose bouffant braid. Cheryl sometimes can age a little on red carpets, but this braid is youthful and fun, while oozing sex appeal – I seriously love it.

Golden Globes 2013: Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad

Jennifer lopez zuhairmurad Golden Globes 2013: Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad %tag

 

Who: Jennifer Lopez

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A long-sleeve silk Zuhair Murad gown featuring an ivory embroidered lace overlay with beading detail from the spring/summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection, teamed with a gold clutch

Verdict: I so, so want to like this look from Jennifer Lopez, mainly because I always love that she goes full-out on the red carpet, but for me this dress looks too familiar.

The problem I have with the gown is that feels too much like an ice skating outfit or one of her tour looks with all the nude lace – plus it just keeps on reminding me of that nude jumpsuit Britney wore in her Toxic video.

On the plus side no one does red carpet hair and make-up better than J-Lo she really does look stunning.

What do you think of J-Lo’s look?

Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2: Kristen Stewart Wows In Zuhair Murad

wpid Photo 15 Nov 2012 2126 Twilight   Breaking Dawn Part 2: Kristen Stewart Wows In Zuhair Murad %tag

Who: Kristen Stewart surrounded by her men, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner

Where: At the London premiere of Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2

Wearing: A black sheer lace embroidered Zuhair Murad jumpsuit with an open back from the designer's autumn/winter 2012 couture collection

Verdict: There is a new found confidence with Kristen that is refreshing and this promo tour she really had embraced her sexy side and this is another wow moment, but unlike the LA premiere I actually prefer the peek-a-boo sheer top to the jumpsuit than the skirt of the gown.

The delicate embroidered detail is exquisite and makes this jumpsuit for me – I actually think this look rivals Emma Stone's Elie Saab tuxedo-style jumpsuit – what do you think?

Care about what the hunks were wearing? Well team Jacob won it for me with that sexy violet two-button notch-lapel Z Zegna suit, it was close though as team Edward looks just as good in Burberry.

So which team is best dressed for you? Bella, Jacob or Edward?

Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2: Kristen Stewart In Zuhair Murad

Kristen stewart Zuhair mura Twilight   Breaking Dawn Part 2: Kristen Stewart In Zuhair Murad %tag

Who: Kristen Stewart

Where: At the Los Angeles premiere of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California

Wearing: A nude strapless Zuhair Murad gown featuring lace and chiffon panelling and a corseted bodice from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a Cartier bracelet

Verdict: I was expecting something short, black, and tight, not feminine, romantic and sexy, and while I love the colour, the silhouette of the gown, and that she stepped out of her comfort zone I am just not loving this look a 100%.

For me this gown would have been perfection if the skirt had a light layer underneath, everything about this gown is divine, I just can’t help but think the nude is a little too much – what do you think?

What I do absolutely adore about this look has to be her old Hollywood-inspired hair, her side-swept locks makes such a statement and her bold lippy is just divine.

What do you think of Kristen’s look?

Pitch Perfect: Anna Kendrick in Zuhair Murad

AnnaKendrickPitchPerfect Pitch Perfect: Anna Kendrick in Zuhair Murad %tag

Who: Actress Anna Kendrick

Where: At the ‘Pitch Perfect’ premiere in Los Angeles

Wearing: A nude high-neck sleeveless Zuhair Murad mini dress featuring a gold embroidery design from the autumn/winter 2012 ready-to-wear collection, teamed with Brian Atwood heels, Dana Rebecca Designs rings and earrings, and a gold mirrored Judith Leiber clutch

Verdict: I am not sure how I missed Anna Kendrick looking so stunning on the red carpet for her new flick Pitch Perfect in LA, I am thinking it is because I was so blown away by the gorgeous Brittany Snow, but wow, wow, wow to this incredible Zuhair Murad mini dress.

Everything from the silhouette of the kick-flare dress to the gold and nude colour combination, to her glossy wavy hair, this is one stunning look. I loved her edgy Mulberry dress she wore in Toronto and now I am loving this sexy Zuhair Murad – I am going to have to keep an eye on Anna as she really has up her fashion game lately!!!

What do you think of Anna’s latest look?

Primetime Emmy Awards: Sofia Vergara In Zuhair Murad

SofiaVergara Primetime Emmy Awards: Sofia Vergara In Zuhair Murad %tagWho: Sofia Vergara 

Where: At the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A teal-green sequinned Zuhair Murad gown featuring a halter neckline to the front, an open back, with a mermaid silhouette from the Resort 2012 collection, teamed with Neil Lane jewellery

Verdict: Sofia is known for her body-hugging gowns and even though this look is a little predictable from her, I also love that she knows what works for her body.

This is one sexy gown, I love the open back, the jewel tone looks stunning against her skin tone and tumbling locks, and Sofia is always the one to bring the bling to the red carpet and Neil Lane decked her out beautifully.

What do you think? Do you love this sexy gown on Sofia?
