Cannes, It’s a White Out!

photo 1 (2)Well last week was the uber stylish week of the Cannes Film Festival. Its renowned for being one of the most prestigious events of the year! Every year we are in awe of the gowns, so we have decided to share our best dressed with you! This spring/summer 2013 is huge for white, and we are BIG fans of all white everything! So this is our opinion on who we think has done white well (not in order).

photo 2 (2)First on our list is the absolutely stunning Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, she opted for all white Dior dress and white Louboutins. She looks glowing, the dress fits her like a dream, this is a very classic look and allows the dress to do the talking by keeping it basic.

photo 3 (2)Next up we have Nicole Kidman on the red carpet wearing a magnificent Valentino gown! This look is flawless, the gown is so beautiful with intricate lace detail and classic high neck. Nicole finished this look off perfectly with subtle red lip as the only accessory, we LOVE this look.photo 4

Carey Mulligan’s look has been hit and miss for some people, however we love her in this Vionnet dress. Monochrome is bang on trend this year, and we love the almost origami feel to this dress! Black sky scrapper heels complete this look, we think she looks hot!

Whenever you think of Emma Watson, you always think of the cliche ‘Girl next door’ but not anymore, gone are her Harry Potter days! She donned the most amazing Chanel column dress with black velvet bustier. She looked the epitome of elegance, chic and style.

Last, but by no means least, is Solange Knowles. She stepped out wearing a bright white Stephane Rolland 2013 jumpsuit, not a gown but none the less fabulous! She has absolutely nailed this look, we are in love with the immaculate tailoring and unusual conical detailing around the neckline and down the sleeves, teamed with her statement red lip and tan heels perfects this look, she looks fierce!

The Oscars: Hot or Not?!

oscars red carpet

We know you have Read all about it but this is our take on the Glorious Gowns from the 85th Academy Awards. The Oscars are one of the most glamorous events in the fashion calendar, with all eyes on the celebrities to see what they are wearing. There were some gorgeous dresses on the red carpet this year, however we also spotted a few not so hot ones!

Stacy Keibler¬†undoubtedly¬†looked amazing in this beaded Naeem Khan dress, everything about this look is perfectly glamorous! Naeem Khan is a ridiculously talented designer from Mumbai, but he has only recently came into the limelight when he designed for Michelle Obama when she was attending the house correspondents dinner, he is one of her favourite designers. His client base includes Beyonce, Eva Longoria and Leighton Meester. The gown itself fits Stacy like a glove accentuating her fabulous figure, the bead work is exquisite with all the beads ranging from blacks, silvers and grey’s then adding a pop of red towards the bottom. The sheer back takes this dress to the next level and is overall extremely feminine and eye catching, this look is definitely a head turner!

Salma Hayek is yet another of our favourite looks from this years Oscars red carpet, she looks phenomenal in this floor length  Alexander McQueen blue velvet gown. The dress hugs her figure perfectly, creating a gorgeous hourglass shape! The heavily embellished gold collar looks beautiful and adds that extra bit of glam taking this dress up a notch from being too gothic and dark.

We would like to give a special mention to Jennifer Lawrence, who took best actress this year, she looked beautiful in her Haute couture Dior gown! She is the face of the Dior fashion house and fronts their Miss Dior campaign flawlessly. Here is a short clip of behind the scenes footage from a recent Miss Dior bag campaign with Jennifer, she looks divine. Click here to watch the clip

The actress had a slight shock when she went to collect her award and make her speech, when she fell! Even though she had this incident she still managed to look stunning. In hindsight if we were the one to style Jennifer we would have perhaps gone for a gown that was more streamline, which had less flare at the front and more at the back, to make it easier for her to manage up the stairs to the stage. Here is a link to her backstage interview after she had a few shots. She was quite witty while answering some very silly questions. Take a look 

Now for the not so hot celebrity looks;

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals   kristen stewart oscars

Kristen Stewart did not impress¬†us at all this year on the red carpet wearing Reem Arca.¬†We feel the gown drains her and doesn’t suit her skin tone, also the shape even makes Kristen herself ¬†look slightly awkward and uncomfortable donning this gown, this was definitely not her best look. Kristen had a very unusual accessory this year on the red carpet…her crutches, she also wore one fabulous Jimmy Choo and one flat pump!

Reese Witherspoon donned a jewel azure blue Louis Vuitton and got a lot of praise from other bloggers and fashion press, however we disagree! We think the colour is fabulous and really suits her skin tone, yet the shape and cut do nothing for her, especially in her waist, the gown looks as though it doesn’t quite fit and makes her look bigger than she is.

melissa mccarthy

Melissa McCarthy wore a custom made David Meister gown made with platinum silk jersey. This style, colour, fit is just all wrong for Melissa! The fit of this dress seems very off, the pleating has distorted the silhouette of the gown and has created a distraction. The style of dress has just swamped her in material, which is never flattering and this has ended up with her looking shorter! Also the shade of grey does nothing for her skin tone.

anne hathaway 1  anne hathaway 2

Anne Hathaway is the last not so hot celeb in this post. We were surprised by this choice for Anne as she normally looks amazing, however¬†we just don’t feel that this Prada column gown is working well for her. The cut is not flattering across the chest in the silk blush material, it is rather ill fitting and does nothing for her. In an interview Anne commented saying her dress was “work from the front, party from the back” However it seems clear that this dress is all party for Miss Hathaway with the outline of her nipples from the front!
