My Best Dressed Celebrities: 2013

I’ve spent way too much time looking at pretty pictures of celebrities in amazing dresses that I would never in a million dreams be able to get my hands on, but that was time spent productively as it means I have my finished Best Dressed Celebrities of 2013 list.

So sit back with a brew and get scrolling as I count down my top ten eleven best dressed.

11. Nicole Kidman
A last minute entry and the reason my top ten is now a top eleven… I’m usually very against Nicole’s frozen look on the red carpet but she had some truly beautiful moments on the red carpet this year especially in Cannes. I don’t know what it is about the French film festival, but Cannes always brings the most amazing, jaw-dropping gowns. Nicole was serving on the grand jury for Cannes Film Festival this year and she wowed us with a Valentino Couture gown which is the same gown rumoured to have been Anne Hathaway’s original choice for the Oscars before she picked that ghastly Prada monstronsity. Nicole is also BFFs with Mick Jagger’s partner, fashion designer L’Wren Scott, so we always see a lot of her dresses on the statuesque red head. A particular standout moment for me of Nicole was her campaign for Jimmy Choo, a total move away from her normal look, I absolutely loved that choppy fiery bob.

10. Solange Knowles
Solange is of course the lesser known Knowles sister, and has always been known for her daring approach to fashion which I think has definitely rubbed off on Beyonce in recent years. Particular standout looks for me were Solange’s Stephane Rolland white jumpsuit she wore in Cannes better than the red carpet gown she wore, her green bejewelled Ralph & Russo dress she wore to the Grammys and her (some might say) marmite Christian Siriano look she wore to a Vogue event in Dubai. Solange always knows how to rock her ‘fro whether wild and crazy or in box braids, and she knows a thing or two about a sexy thigh split.

9. Nicole Richie
Nicole has upped her game in the past year, gone but not forgotten are her boho roots and in their place was an ultra glam refined woman. You can still see her unique twist on a look with her own range of House of Harlow accessories, and a eclectic set of hairstyles and a perfect smoky eye. Her standout moments come in the form of a stunning Dolce & Gabbana gown at the LACMA Gala, that Marc Jacobs 90s inspired dress and a classic Hollywood moment at the Golden Globes. Thank god Nicole ditched Paris and saught out a career in fashion, much like Victoria Beckham, when she was villified for her path to fame (despite being Lionel Richie’s daughter) she has proved her worth.

8. Elizabeth Banks
Not many looks from Elizabeth Banks this year, but still worthy of an entry on my best dressed list. Thanks to another Hunger Games promo tour we got to see Elizabeth at her best, she wowed us with two Elie Saab gowns, a neon yellow Jason Wu and a dreamy silver dress by the same designer on the same night. She placed second in my best dressed list last year with her rainbow red carpet wardrobe and 2013 again demonstrates an actress not afraid to inject some colour into her look.

7. Jennifer Lawrence

There are 23 looks here from Jennifer Lawrence and believe me when I tell you that’s not all of them. She comes in at number seven on my best dressed of 2013 list because she’s Jennifer Lawrence and I’m in love with her. Thanks to her partnership with Dior she had a very hit and miss year on the red carpet. It was expected that on every major red carpet the Oscar-winning actress would be dressed in the brand that she officially became the face of, but not to everyone’s pleasure. There were epic hits like her beautiful Oscars gown which I originally didn’t love but adore now, even more so her dramatic look at the Paris premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and of course a non-Dior dress with her Vanity Fair Oscar after-party in a metallic Calvin Klein that flattered her figure beautifully. Her promo tour for Catching Fire was a mixed bag but overall she seemed to become more relaxed in Dior more so with her gorgeous new hair cut which freshened her whole image. I can’t wait to see what Jennifer brings to the red carpet in 2014 as it looks like she’ll be on the awards circuit again with a supporting actress nomination for American Hustle.

6. Lily Collins
Wow, Lily Collins had a great year on the red carpet thanks to her promo tour for The Mortal Instruments. Whilst the film didn’t get rave reviews, I enjoyed it and Jamie Campbell Bowers sexy bad boy character even if there was a weird incest plot (?!). Lily executed one of the best promo tours I’ve seen in recent years and her only competition for me was the celebrities who are above her in my best dressed list! She debuted so many different looks it was hard to keep up, she ruled the dark berry lip, worked the sexy cutout in Cushnie et Ochs and wore plenty of crop tops, not to mention old Hollywood glamour as seen in her two Houghton looks below. She consistently outdid herself on every red carpet, and those brows are things of dreams. Wow.

5. Diane Kruger

In at my number one spot last year for her epic run at the Cannes Film Festival, this year Diane Kruger proves she is the most consistent when it comes to style on and off the red carpet. She’s always been my number one style crush, and one half of my most favourite celeb couple, so when her best accessory is Joshua Jackson you cannot fail to love her. From her Oscars Giambattista Valli cape-back mini and handsome plus one, to her Jessica Rabbit Jonathan Saunders look at the the Hammer Museum Gala, and not forgetting her head to toe Chanel Couture look at The Host New York premiere with Josh in that perfect blue suit. Her best looks for 2013 come in the form of a beautiful and surprisingly not couture Valentino Resort gown she wore to the Valentino Ball during the Venice Film Festival, a Prabal Gurung Resort gown for the Metropolitan Opera Season Opening, and a pretty gold Marchesa dress for the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund event. Other looks that I adore are her Mary Katrantzou dress, her Chanel Couture cocktail moment and that super cute Emilia Wickstead tuxedo style dress for the Autism Speaks event.

4. Kate Hudson
Ahh the Californian beauty has one of the best bodies in the business and never fails to show it off in some spectacular gowns. My absolute favourite from Kate this year had to be the Reem Acra gown she wore to the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, fittingly the gown was the exact shade of Tiffany blue and she looked simply stunning with that thigh split and sweetheart neckline, perfect blonde waves and gorgeous jewels. Kate also showed of those abs in a Gucci gown at the LACMA Gala, proving that a deep v neckline and cutouts doesn’t always mean trashy. Kate also looked fabulous in black Alexander McQueen at the Golden Globes, in BFF Stella McCartney at the ELLE UK Style Awards and looked adorable and sexy in a purple Bec & Bridge playsuit at the iHeart Radio Festival. Here’s to another year of Kate Hudson dropping jaws.

3. Nina Dobrev
I harp on about this all the time but Nina Dobrev will always top my best dress ever list with her Donna Karan Atelier gown she wore to the 2011 Emmys. It was just so epic and stunning, and two years later she still continues to wow on the red carpet much to the talent of her stylist Ilaria Urbinati who has created many of the looks you see below. In particular the Naeem Khan tropical mini dress was my favourite from Nina in 2013, not just because she can rock a mini like no other but because I like to think my request to see Nina in the SS’13 worked and my wish was granted! Her Monique Lhuillier jumpsuit/dress she wore to the MET Gala was another genius creation, pushing the punk envelope whilst still being sexy and glam is no mean feat she was one of my best dressed of the night. Other standout looks come in the form of a sporty pink Elie Saab at the SAG Awards, a colourful Julien Macdonald mini for her Cosmo cover party and another stunning Naeem Khan for the Elton John Oscar viewing party. Like so many others on my list I cannot wait to see what Nina Dobrev has in store for 2014.

2. Naomie Harris
What an amazing red carpet year for this Mandela actress, another star that had an epic promo tour with an array of designers dressing her and looking simply beautiful. I couldn’t possibly pick between the Alexander McQueen gown Naomie wore for the Royal premiere of Mandela or the Marchesa she picked for the Oxfam Charity Gala – two very different but stunning looks. Naomie wowed with gorgeous pastel colours in Vionnet and Burberry, then a rich purple at the MET Gala, patterns in Vivienne Westwood and Gucci and glitz in Calvin Klein and Donna Karan Atelier. After a very mixed bag with her Bond promo tour the Mandela proved a complete success.

1. Kerry Washington
In at number one, is Kerry Washington. She fell into my top spot quite organically, simply because as I was putting all of the looks together Kerry’s two top looks below were just my absolute favourites. I remember the first time I saw her on the red carpet in that Giles gown and couldn’t believe my eyes, I don’t even know what it is about it that makes me like it so much, maybe the horse print was just so unexpected and that dark berry lip was just perfection. And then the bubblegum sweetness of her Oscar de la Renta gown at the NAACP Awards was just the total opposite, those two colours together along with a matching pink lip was just beautiful. I admit I wasn’t a massive fan of her Miu Miu Oscars look but loved her Miu Miu Golden Globes look, she looked gorgeous in both Marchesa dresses and she still manages to look youthful and fresh when she flashes those pins in mini dresses from Stella McCartney and Giambattista Valli. Overall Kerry’s promo tour for Django Unchained was a win, closely followed by Naomie Harris and Lily Collins for their respective red carpet runs. Let’s just ignore that Prada monstrosity from the Scandal Season 3 premiere!

Fashion month over on Pinterest

It’s pretty hard to chose my favourite looks from all the fashion weeks, New York to London, and Milan to Paris.

So I decided to Pin all the looks, details, beauty and accessories for each over on my Pinterest page.

Head over to each board to see what I thought of Hedi Slimane’s debut for the new Saint Laurent brand, how much I still love Elie Saab, how amazing Frida Giannini’s collection was for Gucci, the beautiful dresses from Monique Lhuillier, Karl Lagerfeld’s crazy Chanel show, and my favourite Jason Wu collection.

Also see how many all-white looks you can spot, especially the dresses! It was everywhere!

Diane Kruger at Cannes 2012

The golden girl of Cannes this year was of course Diane Kruger, a member of the jury for this year’s prestigious film festival and wearer of some of the most gorgeous gowns seen so far this year.

Never one to let anyone down she opened attended the jury photo call on the first day of Cannes in a burgundy Versus Fall 2012 pleated mini dress with strap details, only Diane could pull off a short sexy dress for the daytime and the bright blonde hair and flawless make up makes it a beautiful look.

Diane made a dreamy return to the Cannes red carpet in an ethereal mint green Giambattista Valli Couture dress for the Moonrise Kingdom premiere and the Opening Ceremony.

On to another day and another dress, this time Diane wore Calvin Klein to celebrate the Women in Film event sponsored by the brand. I love the coral textured fabric of the dress and the shape and admittedly there is a lot of the twins on show there, but I think because Diane doesn’t always do blatant sexy she gets away with the squished cleavage look and those white sandals purely because she has my favourite boy Joshua Jackson on her arm once again (and nixing those pesky rumours they had split).

For the Haiti Carnival Benefit hosted by Armani, Diane wore one of her favourite designers Jason Wu. I first fell in love with her style after she wore that Jason Wu red dress at the CFDA’s a few years ago and here she is in, as of yet unpresented, resort look. The dress has many different aspects to it, the black slip underlay with a signature embellished collar, and the navy chiffon draping that ties into the black waist, I think the navy and black is what jars me especially after seeing Karlie Kloss in a magenta pink dress of a similar design at the MET Gala and Jess Stam at the CFDA Awards in a cobalt blue version. I do love the ear jewellery though and of course there’s Josh…

My absolute favourite look of Diane’s at Cannes is the Vivienne Westwood gown she wore to the Amour premiere. It shimmered and oozed with old Hollywood glamour, from the sidewswept waves, the delicate drop earrings, to the silver box Jimmy Choo clutch, that waist-narrowing corset and the signature draped cleavage. An absolute 10/10 dripping in rose-gold sequins.

Diane wore a custom-made Nina Ricci gown to the Killing Them Softly Cannes premiere, a white drop-waist gown with feather detail and skirt. At first glance I immediately thought this was Chanel Couture, but no no Diane was saving the Chanel for the amFAR Gala later in the week. I like this dress, but I can’t get past the huge corsage on her shoulder, I know it adds a soft pop of colour but it’s just so big especially considering how delicate and detailed her hair is. Josh looked exceedingly handsome in Lanvin.

A hop, skip and a jump over to Monaco saw Diane and Josh attend the Nights in Monaco Gala Fundraiser in Monte Carlo. She wore a Prabal Gurung Fall 2012 gown, with an ostrich feather skirt and amazing gold applique detailing over the bust on a sheer top. This was really an outstanding look and the Nicholas Kirkwood for Prabal Gurung shoes tops off an amazing night for Diane as it was reported that Josh bought a £45,000 necklace for his lady. Annoyingly nearly every media outlet I read reported that it was an engagement gift, but if anybody knows this couple is that they’ve repeatedly said they see no need in getting married. Diane was previously married to Guillaume Canet for five years before they divorced and he went on to have a child with actress Marion Cotillard.

I love the idea of Chanel, it’s a luxurious brand and I will always have a 2.55 handbag on my wishlist, but whenever I see the looks from a runway show I always struggle to like any of them. Maybe I’ll like an accessory or a detail but sometimes the looks are so out there that I cannot picture them on the red carpet. That is where celebs like Diane come in to display the looks in their own unique way, time and time again I’ve seen a head to toe Chanel look and have been gobsmacked at how different it really looks in person than on the runway. The Krug wore a dress from the Resort 2013 collection that had just been presented, it pays to have friends in high places especially if your bessie is Karl.

Diane’s Cannes run ended on a high with Christian Dior Couture. This dress seemed to get bit of love and hate from the critics, but if you look at every look from Diane there is barely a look that is the same she knows how to mix it up and never sticks to one look aka Jennifer Aniston and her LBD’s, Taylor Swift and her gold/neutral sparkles, and Kristen Stewart and the bedraggled look (ok I give her the Reem Acra gown). Diane’s Dior Couture sleevless gown with a Cinderella-style structured skirt was a great end to the festival, it wasn’t by any means my favourite but I definitely didn’t hate it at all.

Absolutely outstanding performance from Diane Kruger at Cannes this year, I can’t wait to see her back on the red carpet next year and for the rest of this year, as always my #1 Style Crush!

Golden Globes 2012: A success!

I refer you to my post on the Golden Globes 2011, where I was extremely disappointed in the dresses, very few celebs displayed any show stoppers and it was a struggle to form a best-dressed list.

However this year was very different… the stylists stepped up their game by a long shot. I think last year has been vaporized into oblivion by this years array of stunning gowns.

My one to watch last year was Michelle Williams, and again this year I’ve really enjoyed seeing her red carpet choices leading up to the Globes. She’d been sticking to a palette of monochrome and so I was hoping for some colour and I was not disappointed, Michelle demonstrated that understated glamour she is so good at (ignoring the Valentino from last year) with a purple velvet Jason Wu column  dress and picked up the award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. 9/10

Evan Rachel Wood was my favourite of the night, she is never afraid of wearing a show-stopper and this Gucci Premiere gown was simply beautiful. She reminds me of a mermaid, with feathers. 9.5/10

Dianna Agron wasn’t featured prominently on any best/worst dressed lists, I suppose her star power is still at a B- for a television actress, but her red laser cut Giles dress is a star to me. Very reminiscent of the Marchesa dress that Rachel McAdams wore at Cannes but edgier. I think it would have worked even better if it didn’t have the slight train and was cut with a flare at the ankle. 8/10

I loved Claire Danes‘ neon pink Calvin Klein from last years Golden Globes, this year she picked a monochrome J. Mendel dress. I loved it but I think that’s because of the back, I’m a lover of bare backs and this was a hit purely for that reason and the red lips. Still she went on to pick up the Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama for the epic show that is Homeland, congratulations. 7.5/10

Claire Danes in J. Mendel at the Golden Globes 2012

Kudos to Paula Patton for daring to wear THE brightest dress ever made. Her sunshine yellow Monique Lhullier dress showed Sarah Michelle Gellar how to do the designer the correct way. Honestly, SMG turned up in a godawful inky blue and white dress with a huge bustle around the waist which just totally overwhelmed her and then she made the excuse that her daughter Charlotte picked it out… Yeah put the blame on the innocent child poor thing. SMG gets a ridiculously low -2/10 whilst Paula shines with 7/10.

Salma Hayek looked gorgeous in Gucci, I don’t think I’d be able to guess how old she is when she busts out a dress like this. Sleek and sexy, gorgeous but no mutton. An easy 8/10.

Salma Hayek in Gucci at the Golden Globes 2012

As a rule to myself I never EVER include Tilda Swinton on any lists, because she is a force of her own making. An individualist at heart she just refuses to conform. This time however her Golden Globes outfit was by no means extreme nor was it simple and boring, but a light blue Haider Ackermann creation which she carried off without breaking a sweat. I really liked the styling, the matching cuffs and quiffy ice blonde hair (it’s like she’s always the White Queen) , an icy 7/10.

Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann at the Golden Globes 2012

The best of the rest include:

  • A stunning Kate Beckinsale who really doesn’t seem to age in Roberto Cavalli a graceful 8/10.
  • Katherine McPhee in a shock horror mid-length gown by Donna Karan. A refreshing change but the colour was a bit drab 6.5/10.
  • Nicole Richie is a favourite of mine, I liked her Julien Macdonald dress but I didn’t love it, the bling was fantastic though 7/10.
  • Madeleine “Victoria” Stowe, the Revenge actress didn’t scoop any awards but looked electric in a cornflower blue Vera Wang custom creation 7.5/10.
  • Although I don’t favour this dress on Lea Michele because she just sexed it up way too much, the pose, the smoky eye it just doesn’t sit right. I love the green cocktail ring and the dress itself but really not her, one day she will do something simple and understated and will still look amazing, a stingy 6/10.
  • Diane Lane really shows everyone else how to do it, the actress looked elegant in a gold embellished Reem Acra gown 8.5/10.
  • Emma Stone’s Lanvin gown kind of underwhelmed me, I love her and the make up was gorgeous but I was expecting something showstopping, maybe she’s saving it for when she’s nominated, 6.5/10.
  • Mila Kunis rocked up in a black Dior dress, she looked nice but clearly was there in a supporting capacity and not to steal the scene, a lacklustre 6.5/10.
  • I was really on the fence with Jessica Biel’s choice of Elie Saab Couture. He makes THE best red carpet dresses and she chose this? It’s kind of old lady up top with this beautiful skirt. Sort it out Jess you’re not going to wear this at your wedding I hope, 5.5/10.
  • I would like to say to Nicole Kidman to get rid of the long hair and tight dresses, and wear something that makes you look your age and not a tacky wannabe. 3/10 just because it’s Versace.

My Best Dressed: 2011

I’m an avid fan of Red Carpet Fashion Awards, so many blogs out there (mine included) chart what celebrities wear and this does it perfectly. I admit I’ve turned a bit lazy because Fashion Critic does it so bloody brilliantly.

She has a Best Dressed of the Year Awards running at the minute which it took me a while to complete because OMG there are soooo many dresses/outfits this past year that have stood out. But I narrowed it down to my five favourite looks this year and eventually decided on my personal winner.

RCFA will be releasing the results of the BDOTY Awards this week but here’s who I’m hoping comes out on top…

5. Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli stealing the limelight at the Friends With Benefits premiere.

3. Zoe Saldana in Elie Saab Couture at the Latin Grammys 2011, I can’t help but also mention her amazing Michael Kors bodysuit and matching trousers that she wore when appearing as a guest on Project Runway.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

I honestly don’t know how fashion editors, buyers, directors etc etc do a fashion week. I’ve struggled to keep up with all the shows and I’m sat on my arse in front of a computer scrolling through photographs from each show, and even then I have to make a selection of who I want to look at because it TAKES SO LONG. I always look at my favourite designers, the recognisable names and then pick a few random ones that usually end up been the better options!

New York Fashion Week, was a whole load of different, if that makes sense. There were some similar themes running through several shows, like a LOT of white, and in mostly silky sheer material which looked a dream, seen at Luca Luca, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. The material I mention was in practically every show, well every show that I looked at, it’s the perfect shimmery, sexy, slinky, swishy, silk material that I adore especially when you see it down the runway floating and folding on the model. I especially loved the DKNY show, I watched it livestream on Style.com and I felt like I was there (I pretended OKAY) the looks were light and airy with really nicepops of colour.

Colour was another big look, from pastel, sherbet, vivid, neon, rich, royal, sparkle and nude there wasn’t a show that didn’t pass by without a flash of the rainbow (well maybe apart from Ralph Lauren…). My favourite ‘colour’ shows were Jason Wu and Christian Siriano, Wu’s pastel pinks paired with crisp white and citron flashes of yellow were a dream, and Siriano’s burnt orange ball gown skirt was a delight.

Christian Siriano

Shape was sexy and tailored, peekaboo splits, peplum skirts or ballgown goodness. The recurring sexy tailoring was a particular favourite, pencil thin trousers in an array of colours, or the easiest way to do spring tailoring, shorts. Shorts galore! Simple style with a loose tee or sharp with a tux blazer, a great look to pull off if you pair the right shapes together. There were shift dresses from Victoria by Victoria Beckham her new line (not diffusion mind), there were full length red carpet amazing-ness, puff-tastic, dropped flapper style waists and some dripping in embellishment, case in point, Marchesa.

Tibi

Prabal Gurung

There were plenty of red-carpet looks that could be seen at future film premieres, gala’s and even award shows, one of my favourites was Ralph Lauren’s look 52. A simple white column dress with cobweb patterened jewel short sleeves and a high neck, I would very much like to see this on Emma Stone. Zac Posen’s collection exudes glamour and red carpet beauty, for someone to wear one of his gowns would be a show-stopping moment. And not forgetting, the queen of red carpet, Georgina Chapman…

Ralph Lauren Zuzanna Bijoch

Marchesa Karolina Kurkova

My ULTIMATE look of the week and ULTIMATE model, has to go to Karlie Kloss in Prabal Gurung. Prabal Gurung’s show was the epitome of sexy and I also watched that livestream and couldn’t believe how good it was. Karlie Kloss just has this amazing walk and this smoldering eyebrow-arching pout that I am just drawn to, how can she look that good and be only 19 *sad face*.

Prabal Gurung Karlie Kloss

Right I’m ready and raring to go for London Fashion Week, I expect this to be edgier as the Brit designers are apparently known for. Probably won’t like it as much… I can’t wait for Paris though.

Here’s the best of the rest….

MTV Movie Awards vs. CFDA Awards

Two awards shows, two very different crowds. But both one common goal, dress to impress. MTV Movie awards saw plenty of daringly short dresses, embellishment, and casual sexiness. The CFDA Awards were all high fashion bang on trend, colour blocking, sheer and silk materials, super tall models alongside the most notable fashion designers of-the-moment.
