Red carpet: MTV Movie Awards 2014

There were only three words on everyone’s lips after the MTV Movie Awards last night and that was ZAC EFRON SHIRTLESS.

Behold the beauty:

Where was I?

The red carpet fashion proved somewhat of a mixed bag as always when it comes to cast members of MTV shows mingling amongst film stars. I also only recognised about 30% of the people walking the red carpet so I’ll stick to who I know..

Shailene Woodley has been a regular feature on best dressed lists recently after her promo tour for new movie Divergent. Her style is known to be very laid back and verging on the lazy (i.e bare feet, no make up), but she’s been knocking it out of the park and this latest Balmain look is no exception. For some this olive leather look may be a bit like marmite but I love the tough girl edge via the belted skirt and gladiator type sandals and that little flash of skin via that knot feature.

I normally discount Rita Ora whenever she appears on a red carpet because I just cannot get on board with her style. But this black satin very deep cleavage dress by Barbara Casasola, those blonde tumbling waves and that not-going-anywhere red lip all works perfectly. Well done Rita, and I salute you for ripping off Zac Efron’s shirt.

Of course Jessica Alba does sexy and cute like only she can. Her Piece d’Anarchive crop top is super simple and very easy to replicate on the high street along with her full ball skirt by one of her favourite brnad Kenzo. The mix of citrus and white is so effective with a little touch of monochrome via her shoes, Jessica is working every spring trend to perfection.

Chrissy Teigen has been an awards carpet regular this year, being the perfect plus one to her musician hubby John Legend. She either goes full on glamazon sexy or super cute and girly, the latter is what she chose to channel at the MTV Movie Awards in her Ulyana Sergeenko Couture bird print dress. I’m glad that we’ve seen quite a lot of Ulyana’s collection because I basically loved it and love Chrissy in this in spite of the boring shoes.

Another Ulyana Sergeenko Couture creation, this time modelled by Rihanna. Some said on my Twitter feed that it looked like she was ready for bed, and Rihanna is known for doing the whole lingerie look to the extreme but what I love about this particular boudoir-inspired look was her toned down styling. The wavy hair pinned loosely back with face-framing tendrils, the stunning bronze make up and the matching nude shoes just totally worked. Someone else, say Rita Ora for example, wouldn’t been able to resist adding that red lip and making it trashy but Rihanna works it like only she can, this is one of my favourite looks from her in a long time.

Another major departure from her usual style on the red carpet was Nicki Minaj. I couldn’t believe how amazing she looked with her natural hair colour minus all the bells and whistles she normally sports. Wearing a figure-hugging black Alexander McQueen gown what made it stand out was her McQueen jewellery, are arm bangles going to make a comeback?

I’ve missed Lupita Nyong’o from the red carpet. She made a bold appearance in a multicoloured Chanel dress at the MTV Movie Awards. I think I only half love it because of the high neck but I think Lupita can pull off anything and those sky blue Casadei Blade pumps are to die for.

I adore Leslie Mann’s flirty polka dot Juan Carlos Obando dress. It’s great for this type of event and pairing orange shoes with black is something I absolutely must try this summer!

BRAND NEW Trailer: Hunger Games Catching Fire

The very first thing I did this morning was watch the brand new teaser trailer that debuted at the MTV Movie Awards in the US last night.

The Hunger Games Catching Fire is the next movie in the trilogy (or quadrilogy if the last movie is to be split) and sees our heroine Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark return to their district amongst fanfare, but then as they go on a tour of the other districts the beginning of the uprisings is evident.

Something must be done about them and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) insists they be killed off. The trailer is dark a great representation of what the second book in the series is like, the people of the districts are desperate and they use Katniss as a beacon of hope which in turn puts her life and those closest to her in great danger.

Everyone knows about the naked pictures, she kind of referred to them on The Today Show very easily saying that no matter what “rumours” come out that she has the support of her friends and family and that’s all that matters. Very clever answer, but let’s face it those piccies as well as her rumoured (because they are yet to officially announce anything) boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio have catapulted Blake to one of the most talked about celebs of the past month even Reese Witherspoon got a good dig in at the MTV Movie Awards when she said “if you are going to take naked pictures of yourself, for gods sake hide your face!”

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.

Sandy’s Back!

Yey she’s back! I’m glad that she’s still as light-hearted as ever. I know it’s been a while since The Blind Side came out but it is ridiculously good, and she well deserved all the other awards she got in relation to it! Anyway, Sandra appeared at the Spike TV Guys Awards in the US to accept her “Troops Choice” award, on receiving it she said:

“Let’s be honest here, just for a moment. We’re all going to be honest, right?” Bullock, 45, told the crowd. “Did I win this for being entertainer of the year, or did I win this because of the spectacular I.E.D. [improvised explosive device] explosion that became my personal life?!”

See why can’t all celebs be like that, she powers through and keeps up her chin for her cute little baba Louis.


And then she appeared at the MTV Movie Awards and snogged no other than Scarlett Johansson. Whey.


Day Nineteen – A Talent of Yours

Well I have many, I think, but I can’t remember them all.

However, I have one particular talent that I’m pretty proud of: I can cook.

I bet you were expecting something amazing and out of this world, but you know what that is pretty impressive considering some of my friends lived off super noodles for a large part of university (ha ha not going to mention any names!)

I like to experiment in the kitchen, using a basic recipe and making it my own. I love it and I love food.

It’s funny most people come home from university to be pampered and looked after, I enjoy coming home and cooking for my mum, who by the way loves everything I cook (and if she doesn’t she never says, she’s good like that) from anything to curries and stir frys to fish dishes and Italian.

I am partial to cooking desserts my most spectacular dish was a white chocolate cheesecake, very fiddly but bloody gorgeous. I can do lemon meringue pie and I am a genius when it comes to making brownies, which I am doing tomorrow so I may pop a picture on for you all to drool over the fact you aren’t getting any. Ha.

For now though here is a picture of what I like to think looks like Rob Pattinson getting ready to hit Kristen Stewface on the head with his MTV Movie Award:

"Grrrr take that Stewface" - RPattz isn't that fond of her either apparently
