Zoe Saldana in Valentino - Colombiana Premiere

The lovely Zoe Saldana was spotted attending the second Premiere of her new film, Colombiana in which she plays a female assassin (should be interesting), this time Zoe was at the LA screening of the movie looking gorgeous in a leather Valentino dress. Zoe has really upped the ante for this promotional tour every look has been great and interesting and most definitely worth blogging about!

Dress: Valentino Coral Leather Dress

Shoes: Christian Louboutin ''Pigalle'' Pump

Clutch: Salvatore Ferragamo Metal Minaudiére 

Jewels: Irene Neuwirth 

Zoe wore this beautiful coral leather number from Valentino's Fall 2011 collection which I believe was not shown on the runway but none the less its a beautiful dress! The colour is what initially caught my eye as it looks beautiful against Zoe's skin and of course leather is always eye catching but this piece wasn't as harsh looking as some other leather pieces I've seen on the red carpet lately.

Zoe paired her lovely dress with nude Louboutins and a beautiful Ferragamo clutch, she had the right idea in pairing her dress with nude accessories as anything dark would've really ruined the beauty of it. Some bloggers even preferred this look to her Balmain dress which I can't say I agree with, I think the Balmain is better but this is also a dress to remember for Zoe. 

Lastly, Zoe finished her look with polished hair & make-up, nothing over the top and those earrings are lovely, right?

Hope you enjoyed, next up: Best VMA looks!!

Leighton Meester at LoveStruck Launch in Soho.

My permanent girl crush, Leighton Meester attended a launch party for Vera Wang's LoveStruck fragrance - of which she is the face of, in Soho a few nights ago. Leighton & Vera have formed a very close friendship and are so fond of each other, I bet Leighton loves being Vera's new muse considering all of the freebies she must get, lucky girl!

Leighton's Outfit:

Dress: Vera Wang Lavender Citrine Chiffon Dress

Shoes: Jimmy Choo '' Esam'' Pumps

Jewellery: Van Cleef & Arpels 

Leighton wore this adorable citrine dress from Vera's sister label Vera Wang Lavender which provides cocktail dresses, informal things like this pretty dress - its a lovely colour which looks great on Leigh and its a simple design with chiffon and pleats...

I really like the length of the dress as its just above the knees, its a little playful and flowing plus I'm glad she added the black belt as it gave her waist some definition. It's a very pretty dress with a lovely colour and perfect for the event, I'm glad to see Leighton in a bright colour and something quite girly, I really like it! She finished her look with black Jimmy Choo pumps and Van Cleef & Arpels bangles and rings - really beautiful jewellery which added some sparkle to her outift!

Beautiful Leigh opted for a high top care free bun for her hairstyle and fresh skin with a little smoke on the eyes, lets be honest she doesn't even need make-up she's beautiful enough to go without! Love her so much!

P.S how cute are her mismatched Swarovski earrings? Gorgeous! 

Leighton with the beautiful LoveStruck bottle which is just as stunning in real life and I can confirm the scent is gorgeous!

Love Leighton and can't wait to see both her and Blake at the Toronto International Film Festival in early September!!!

Anne Hathaway's Obsession - Alexander McQueen

The gorgeous Anne Hathaway has been busy promoting her new film One Day all around the world, Anne's character ''Emma'' is a Yorkshire gal so Anne had to adopt a British accent in the process so naturally she's been wearing the UK's biggest designer - Alexander McQueen to all of her major Premiere's such as New York and London. Being one of the biggest actresses in Hollywood means Anne has her pick of the newest collections, in this case both dresses are from McQueen's Resort 2012 collection and of course when being styled by Rachel Zoe, you can't really go wrong.

Anne at the New York Premiere of ''One Day'', 8th August 2011:

Dress: Alexander McQueen Resort 2012

Shoes: Christian Louboutin '' Pigalle Plato''

For the NYC Premiere Anne chose this beautifully detailed dress from McQueen's newest collection, she had the honour of being the first to wear it and looked sensational doing so, the top half of the dress is of course the most exciting part as the rest is a sheeny black but the gold and bronze detailing really give the dress that spark to make it red carpet worthy.

Anne paired her lovely dress which I must say really isn't conventional McQueen - when I first saw it I had no idea it was McQueen but it was a pleasant surprise none the less! Back to the point, Anne chose these beautiful light gold Louboutins that I haven't really noticed before, I'm glad she went for a nude shoe as anything darker would've darkened the whole look considering there's a lot of black on the dress. 

Anne looked beautiful, as usual in wavy two toned hair and a brown smoky eye to accentuate her beautiful eyes, I thought she looked sensational at the NYC Premiere and as far as prettiness goes, she looks better at this Premiere. 

Anne at the London Premiere of ''One Day'', 23rd August 2011:

Dress: Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 Cap Sleeve Lace Dress

Shoes: Alexander McQueen Resort 2012

Clutch: Alexander McQueen Resort 2012

Jewellery: Tiffany

For her London Premiere, Anne wore this beautiful white lace dress from the same collection and I must say I prefer this dress to the previous, it looks a lot more classic McQueen hence the lace and detailing but its just generally more appealing to the eye. There's something very eye catching about this dress, its feminine yet quite sexy, I genuinely love it and white is definitely Anne's colour, I hope to see her in it more often during the press tour. 

The lovely Anne paired her one of a kind lace dress with pumps and a clutch from the same collection, I'm in love with the clutch - its such a clean and classic white, its just beautiful but I'm not too sure about the shoes, I feel as though they almost ruined the dress for some people because the colour seems to wash her out, I however will over look them and pay attention to that beauty of a dress! 

Hair & make-up for this Premiere was very simple, not overdone at all - side swept hair and very natural make-up with a little eye liner on the eyes, I prefer the beauty part of the NYC Premiere but the dress of London! Lovely!

What do you guys think? London or New York?

Zoe Saldana in Balmain - Colombiana Premiere

My girl crush of the moment - Zoe Saldana attended the screening of her new movie ''Colombiana'' last night looking like a million dollars! As soon as I caught a glimpse of Zoe, I knew I had to post about her look because she was also wearing one of my favourite fashion houses - Balmain!!

Zoe Saldana in Balmain Resort 2012:

The beautiful Zoe wore a modified version of this Balmain Resort 2012 dress at the Premiere, the modification being the added white train - I know a lot of critics didn't approve of the added train but as soon as I saw a glimpse of her dress, I knew it was Balmain and couldn't not love it! The detail in the dress is insane and the works of true craftsmanship plus the gold looks mesmerizing against Zoe's skin.

Zoe paired her dress with black strappy heels although I do think a nude or gold heel would've looked better, none the less, she looked sensational and is certainly one of the biggest Balmain fans around ( this is the second look she's worn from this collection). 

Zoe finished her look with dramatic eye make-up consisting of liquid eye liner flicked up, very cat like and brown eyeshadow in the same shape while everything else was kept simple. Her hair was in a carefree up do, with a dress like that, you've got to let it do the talking! 

Hope you all enjoyed!

The Help Premiere: Emma Stone

The lovely Emma stone attended the Premiere for her fantastic new film, The Help and looked divine clad in Chanel Couture. Emma has become somewhat of a fashion icon as of late, she's been wearing up to date pieces from various designers and has looked fantastic doing so! Here is my take on her look at the premiere:

Dress: Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture

Shoes: Brian Atwood ''Nico'' Pump

Jewellery: Chanel Fine Jewellery

Emma looked beautiful as always in Chanel Spring 2011 Couture, the ensemble consists of a strapless dress with a draped knotted skirt at the waist over a lightly beaded sheer textured t-shirt. Emma really exudes confidence and earns serious fashion credit in this look, she also isn't afraid of a hint of sexiness hence the thigh split which she's proudly showing off.

Emma finished her look with nude Brian Atwood pumps not to stray from the romanticism of her look, nudes, light pinks and greys make up her colour palette which is why she has decided against any harsh colours in all aspect. Her beautiful little bag is also Chanel.

Lastly, Emma took matched every aspect of her outfit to her make-up which consisted of shimmery pinks and purples on the eyes and finished with a glossy pink lip. Her Chanel Fine Jewellery also finished her look perfectly with that beautiful hair pin and earrings adding some sparkle to the outfit. The hair accessory actually reminds me of this Blake Lively look
Emma is a fashionista within her own right and I cannot wait to see what else she comes up with! 

Gossip Girl: Season 4 Bloopers!!

My favourite show on Earth, Gossip Girl had its Season 4 DVD released yesterday and I've been dying to see the bloopers (you know, when they mess up their lines and laugh about it, lol) as I've yet to buy the DVD :'( ...I will be buying it soon though! In the meantime though some lovely people have uploaded it onto YouTube for all to see!
Of course, like all Blair/Serena maniacs I was searching for moments between my two favourite actresses and there were a few and OMFG I freaked - could they be more adorable?!

I love every single cast member and there are so many memorable moments from Penn's ''I almost called you Leighton'' to Leighton's ''Hmm lesbian sex'' LMFAO.
My absolute favourite moments are :
1:45 - 1:47
2:55 - 2:58
4:56 - 5:02   Can't imagine why though, lol, I'm a freak for Blake/Leighton!!

Balmain Resort 2012

The latest resort collections have been released and boy do they look good! Balmain happens to be one of my favourite labels and it also happens to have a new designer at the helm: Olivier Rousteing who has taken over from Decarnin. His designs have that classic Balmain detail and punkiness yet they have an air of freshness about them, the collection has 27 pieces in total but I'm only going to include my very favourites and maybe even give little hints about who I want to see in them! 

This dress is beautifully detailed and something a young starlet could wear to a Premiere or fashion event.

I'm loving the skirt, it can be paired with so many different pieces and you'd have a beautiful outfit.

I love the amount of jewel gold that has been included in this collection and almost has a McQueen feel with the intricate - almost snake like detail.

I love the fit of this dress, it looks beautiful on Kasia (model), its very tight but so gorgeous and it would make a real impact on the red carpet! I think Leighton Meester would look perfect in this.

I adore the skirt in this look, it seems Rousteing has gone for put together outfits with one particular piece receiving all of the attention and in this case, that skirt is screaming for attention! 

I chose this mostly because of that beautiful jacket, the colours and detail are insane. This jacket could either be worn at an event or even better, on a Gossip Girl cast member - can you imagine Blair or Serena in this? OMFG! 

I'm sure all the fashion bunnies out there recognise this look as it was worn by the gorgeous Zoe Saldana a few weeks ago and she sure as hell proved it can be worn to a red carpet event, although you don't need a reason to wear Balmain. 

This tiny play suit is featured on here because I love the fact that he's turned something so simple (play suit) into a red carpet candidate, any daring fashion darling could pull this off with some attitude and those beautiful shoes! 

After rows of shorts, jackets, short dresses we have this beautiful black gown which while it isn't a classic red carpet dress, it would look beautiful flowing against a sea of sugary dresses - if anyone wants to make an impact, I suggest this.

The above jacket caught my attention straight away when I was browsing the look book and wow, its classic Balmain, its luxurious and something every fashionista out there wants to get their claws on! 

This amazing, beautiful & breathtaking white dress is my favourite piece in the whole collection - its so clean and the gold detail in the middle is absolutely beautiful. It's been styled with a large belt and clean white jacket which really adds to the beauty of it. It's different from Decarnin's Balmain but I love it and would love it even more if someone worthy would wear it on the red carpet! 

Last but certainly not least, is this beautiful white & gold short dress. This whole collection has has specks of gold all over the white pieces and it looks absolutely divine, the hanging of the gold fringing on the side of the dress adds some punk into it but it remains classic with those clean lines and beautiful shape - Leighton Meester was put on this earth to wear this and most of the other dresses in my opinion!

Teen Choice Awards, 2011: Blake Lively!

This is the last instalment in the TCA's 2011 series and I end it with my favourite & best dressed lady of the night: Blake Lively!! I'm sure nobody is surprised that I've given Blake an entire post so that I cover everything thoroughly because after all, she's a fashion icon & inspiration of mine so its only right I dedicate a whole post to her! She looked beautiful, glamours and fierce at this years awards (which btw she hasn't attended since 2008!) so lets get started!

P.S. Blake took home the award for ''Actress in a Drama'' and for Gossip Girls' win in ''TV Drama'' - yayy for Blake & for GG, 4 years in a row they've won now! :)

Blake Lively in Gucci Resort 2012:

Fashion icon Blake wore this brand new, straight off the runway Gucci Resort 2012 orange leather dress at the Awards and looked like a ray of sunshine! Its the second time Blake has been spotted wearing a Resort 2012  piece and I bet it won't be the last, being such a fashion icon she must have designers clamouring to dress her! 

I think Blake looks sophisticated yet sexy in this dress because of the leather of course, its a sexy material and she has the body of a supermodel! The orange looks gorgeous against her tanned skin, it just all falls into place, she's so put together and always makes a huge effort, which is pretty much why I adore her! Best dressed by far, for me. 

Perfection is Blake Lively!

Shoes: Christian Louboutin's ''Pigalle Python'' pumps:

Blake paired her dress with these amazing Louboutins, they are a complete dream, seriously! Its a classic stiletto shape, the height of the heel is great and not too big and most importantly the python skin looks wonderful against her orange dress - she couldn't have paired them any better, they look fantastic with her overall look! Love love love! 

Jewellery: Lorraine Schwartz

As always, beautiful Blake was clad in Lorraine Schwartz jewels! She wore this beautiful pair of triangle diamond earrings which reflected light beautifully and most definitely made a statement. I love all of her jewellery, she really does have amazing taste and this is no exception. 

Blake also had two different bracelets, one was a joined circle diamond bracelet (1st in pic) and the other was a gorgeous mini stud diamond bracelet (2nd in pic), both are gorgeous and covered in diamonds so they really give the whole outfit some sparkle in contrast to the leather of the dress. Love them! 

Lastly for jeweller, Blake wore two diamond rings, one was quite small and with a little pink diamond while the other was larger and with pearls wrapped around wired diamonds - both beautiful and Blake is never one to leave the house without diamond rings! 

Hair & Make-up:

Blake looked so beautiful at the event, she blew my mind! Everything about this girl is just perfect! Her make-up was gorgeous as always - bronze eyes, pink lip, bronzed and highlighted face, she always looks so put together and never disappoints me, she is stunning! Her hair was styled as almost quiff like but a large chunk was pulled off of her face & secured with pins at the back - it looks great! Also, her hair seems to be getting blonder by the week but I'm loving it, very golden & beachy and looks fantastic on her! 

This was the last of the TCA instalment guys, I'm gonna try and do this more often as I really love this blog and sharing my thoughts so, see ya soon! :)
