Blake Lively in Elie Saab - Lady Gaga's Workshop Launch

The gorgeous Blake Lively attended Lady Gaga's Workshop Launch in NY a few nights ago and boy did she look amazing. As soon as I caught a glimpse of Blake's outfit I knew it could only be Mr. Saab - the electric blue gave me tingles and the lace shoulders just made my day, this is Blake's best outfit since her Chanel Couture look at the Green Lantern Premiere...she looks heavenly and got me so excited about fashion again so thank you, Blake!

Suit: Elie Saab Spring 2012

Shoes: Christian Louboutin ''Metalipp'' Pumps

Blake looked sensational in her straight off the runway Elie Saab Spring 2012 suit in a beautiful electric blue colour which suits her tanned complexion perfectly. Its a perfect fit for her, its so feminine while it being a suit - the lace detail and plunge really add the sex appeal that Blake is so famous for while adding understated sophistication. It makes her already slim figure appear flawless, her legs look amazing in the trousers - she's just a goddess although I wish she'd chosen better shoes, a strappy sandal would've been better but whatever, I will remember this for a long time! 

A closer look at Blake's Elie Saab suit shows off that amazing lace detail at the shoulders and that deep plunge which works so well with her perfect figure. I thought she accessorized perfectly with silver Lorraine Schwartz jewellery as it made the blue sparkle even more. I'm so glad she upped the ante by wearing a suit, people expect short/revealing dresses from her but this really made my day when I saw it! 

Blake's hair & make-up was stunning, this is probably the best she's looked recently. A carefree up-do is classic Blake but of course she had to make sure we could see that beautiful lace detail and her eye make-up is amazing, a shimmery navy and peach colours were used to create it, bronzy skin and lipgloss completed it to perfection. She's just glowing in this outfit, I hope she wears this colour again.

Blake Lively in Marchesa - Gossip Girl 100th Episode Celebration

Blake Lively was also present at the Gossip Girl 100th Episode Celebration along with her co-stars. Blake certainly grabbed everyone's attention with her very revealing dress - some loved it and some loathed it, its all about personal opinion on this one. She's a huge fan and supporter of Marchesa so its no surprise to see her in one of the Spring 2012 dresses, the relationship between the two is always interesting and colourful to say the least.

Dress: Marchesa Spring 2012 

Shoes: Versace Spring 2009 Sandals

Jewellery: Lorraine Schwartz

Blake wore this gorgeous see through, embroidered fringe dress at the event - lets just say its been a while since Blake has worn something this revealing. My favourite blonde looked like a goddess in this dress in my opinion, she takes risks and doesn't care what others think, that's the spirit! 
Blake's very revealing and heavily fringed organza was in luscious nudes with the embroidery being a cool silver colour. 

Many didn't like Blake's dress as it looked ''ice-skater like'' because of the sheerness and it being so over the top but I personally really like it on her, I think it shows off her perfect figure and the carefully placed embroidery is sexy and typical Blake. I admit I wasn't sure of it at the beginning but I've really grown to like it, its different and clearly, beautifully made. Blake paired her dress with gold Versace heels.

Blake finished her look with a sophisticated bun and pretty golden eyes and a peachy lip. She of course also wore Lorraine Schwartz jewellery to add some sparkle. Gorgeous! 


Leighton Meester in Balmain - Gossip Girl 100th Episode Celebration

The amazing cast of my favourite show, Gossip Girl celebrated the 100th episode of their hit show on Saturday night and all of the cast, past and present were there. My two girl crushes Leighton and Blake of course were in attendance as always stealing the show.
Leighton showed up looking absolutely amazing, literally unbelievably beautiful and was in my opinion the best dressed at the event.

Dress: Balmain Resort 2012 Modified Dress

Shoes: Jimmy Choo 'Lauren' Sandals

Leighton wore one of her favourite designers, Balmain at the event - her Resort 2012 dress is modified from the original as its a lot shorter and in ecru. Her baby-doll dress had pretty bead middle panel detail and a clasp to accentuate her curves. The panels coming from the back of the dress to the front were covered in pretty beading while the dress itself was slightly longer at the front. 

Leighton kept her look really simple with her only jewellery being a pair of earrings but her beautiful Jimmy Choo's added the needed sparkle. She definitely has the best she closet in Hollywood! I'm loving Leighton's whole look - she didn't over do it but the whole ensemble is gorgeous and girly so I can't fault her. Love it. 

Leighton looked drop-dead gorgeous at the event, probably one of my favourites looks beauty-wise. She wore her long brown hair in soft waves and I'm really liking her fringe, its become her signature! Her make-up was also stunning, eyeliner rimmed eyes and plenty of mascara along with flawless skin and a peachy lip completed Leighton's look. By far the most beautiful girl out there!

Blake Lively in Chanel Couture - The Museum of Modern Art Tribute to Pedro Almodovar

Blake Lively was another attendee at The Museum of Modern Art Tribute to Pedro Almodovar and she was also one of my best dressed of the night - her and Emma Stone were the only ones who stood out to me.
Blake was of course wearing Chanel Couture which we haven't seen from her in a while and to be honest I was waiting for the partnership to return. I'm glad Blake is starting to attend more events now as she was completely absent in the Summer time so she better make up for lost time! Here she is looking gorgeous...

Dress: Chanel Fall 2011 Couture Ensemble

Shoes: Christian Louboutin 'Orniron' Ankle Boot

Jewellery: Lorraine Schwartz

Blake attended the event in this gorgeous Chanel Couture ensemble which consisted of a feathered peplum and a just above the knees skirt. For me, the ensemble is impeccable as the level of Couture detail an design is obvious in the structure plus I adore the different shade of grey/blue, I don't think I've seen Blake in grey before!

I adored Blake's Chanel ensemble, it was perfection on her trim body and fit her like a glove not in a overtly sexual way. It's been a while since Blake has worn Chanel on the red carpet and she came back with a bang in this gorgeous piece, its not typical Blake style but it certainly works for her! The only problem I have with this are those dreaded tights and ankle boots - absolutely no need for either, they almost look like a joke against that beautiful Couture piece, both are a very bad choice but I'll let it go if she never repeats it again! 

Now it wouldn't be Blake if she didn't accessorize her look with a ton of Lorraine Schwartz jewellery (her favourite!) and of course all the attention was on her wrists, look at all those diamonds! She wore three gorgeous rings, I particularly love the two ruby ones, two bracelets on each wrist which definitely got my attention - all the colours co-ordinated with the colour of the dress and I thought it was a great idea as it adds a little sparkle plus notice hows she's also matched her nails to the dress, love that colour! 

Blake completed her Couture look with a beehive bouffant which I think was appropriate to let the intricate detail on the dress shine while her make-up consisted of a metallic grey/blue eyeshadow and peachy lip, flawless as always!  And look at those stunning Lorraine Schwartz earrings, they're adorable and she once again colour co-ordinated, she seriously went all out this time!

Emma Stone in Chanel Couture - The Museum of Modern Art Tribute to Pedro Almodovar

The lovely Emma Stone attended The Museum of Modern Art Tribute to Pedro Almodovar event on Tuesday night and was in the company of other Hollywood beauties looking divine. She, like a lot of the guests wore Chanel Couture - Emma has a thing for looking effortlessly classy in anything and she certainly didn't disappoint in this case.

Dress: Chanel Spring 2009 Couture

Shoes: Christian Louboutin 'Elisa' Pumps 

Bag: Chanel Fall 2011 Mini Sequin Lambskin Chain Bag

Emma wore this beautiful black and white sleeveless Chanel Couture gown looking the epitome of sophistication. Her gorgeous dress has floral appliqués on the shoulder and skirt as well as a central split revealing her black Louboutins. I have to say, the dress itself is exquisite and so beautifully designed, it fits her like a glove and oozes charm.

I love the black and white patterns on the dress, they are definitely not something we see a lot of from Chanel so it was a very pleasant surprise plus that sea of red roses behind her accentuate the whole look even more giving a beautiful contrast. Emma completed her outfit with a small Chanel lambskin chain bag - she is perfection, as always and this is one of her best looks for me. 

Beauty-wise, Emma was once again flawless - a retro up-do and mesmerizing cat-eyes with a glossy pink lip completed her perfect look. She was by far one of the best dressed at this event. 


Nikki Reed in Michael Kors - 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' New York Premiere

Nikki Reed attended the New York Premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' a few days ago along with co-star Ashley Greene. While Kristen & Rob were busy in the UK - the other cast helped launch the movie in various US cities.
Once again Nikki blew me away with her dress, my jaw dropped when I saw it and forget what I said last time, this is the best she's ever looked!

Dress: Michael Kors Resort 2012 Cut-Out Gown

Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti 'Sharon' Cage Platforms

Nikki wore this beautiful, bright acid-green cut-out dress to the New York screening and in my opinion she upstaged everyone else by miles! She seems to be a fan of the Resort 2012 collections as its her second look from the season and she most certainly loves different shades of green but I can't blame her as they look sensational on her. As much as I loved Kristen's J.Mendel dress this has to be my favourite of this promotional tour - the colour really pops on her and I need to stop gushing now! 

Her amazing Michael Kors dress also had a high thigh split to add some extra sexiness with all the black cut-outs and body-con style of the dress. I thought Nikki's accessorizing was spotless, the dark cage heels work wonders with the dress - its all very powerful looking and something I hope to see more of from her! WOW.

Nikki really outdid herself this time with lacquered hair which was perfect for the dress and a coral/red lip to pop against the acid-green giving us perfect colour co-ordination. She looks impeccable and I need to stop now because I sound crazy! 


Ashley Greene in Donna Karan - 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' New York Premiere

Ashley Greene attended the New York Premiere of  'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' along with her co-star Nikki Reed and both ladies made quite the impact on the black carpet. 
Ashley once again opted for a custom-made Donna Karan gown which looked great on her..

Dress: Donna Karan Custom-Made Gown

Ashley's one of a kind black and white pleated dress with asymmetrical cuts is different to her previous red carpet dresses, she's really upped her game this time going for dark and sexy looks rather than anything too girlie and I'm liking it! The dress itself looks fantastic on her toned body and really brings out the confidence she's lacked before, after this great marathon of dresses I might just include Ashley on my blog more often!
She accessorized with Cartier jewels for some sparkle.  

Ashley completed her look with shiny, poker straight hair and very smoky eyes which I thought was lovely. She'd also kept the red nails from the previous night which work surprisingly well with this dark look, overall I'm pleasantly surprised by Ashley once again! 


Camilla Belle in Monique Lhuillier - Chopard Reopening of South Coast Plaza Boutique

The ever fashionable Camilla Belle attended the re-opening of a Chopard Boutique on the South Coast Plaza looking gorgeous in a bubblegum pink dress. I don't think I've ever seen Camilla in pink before but I think she looks lovely and it works really well with her brown hair.
Camilla is also giving us the second look from the brands Spring 2012 collection after Kristen Stewart wore one of the dresses recently. 

Dress: Monique Lhuillier Spring 2012 

Camilla opted for this bubble-gum pink dress from Monique Lhuillier's most recent collection - the bustier dress has a panel of shimmering pink sequins over the front which accentuates her curves and gives the illusion of a curvier figure. I personally really love this on Camilla, the length and fit is perfect plus I think the colour looks great on her and although I wish she'd gone for a nude heel I don't mind it much because the dress itself makes quite the statement. 

Camilla completed her look with Chopard jewels which shimmered with the complexion. Her make-up was less heavy than usual with a little smoke on the eyes but nothing overpowering while her hair was very simply styled in loose waves. 


Kristen Stewart in Roberto Cavalli - 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' London Premiere

Kristen Stewart attended the London Premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' on Wednesday along with Robert Pattinson & Taylor Lautner. The leading three attended alone with the rest of the cast remaining in the US for other Twilight promotional duties - shame, I was looking forward to more dresses.
Kristen looked amazing in LA and she didn't disappoint in London, she wore an unexpected designer but pulled it off with tons of confidence.

Dress: Roberto Cavalli Spring 2012 

Kristen went for gothic sexiness in this black, embellished gown which was lined unlike the sheer runway version. I think the detail and embellishment is beautiful for a black dress seeing as black usually drowns out any detail. I think Kristen made the right choice in lining the gown as the runway version was very sheer and I'm sure it wouldn't have been very appropriate considering their fan base.  

Kristen's sexy Cavalli dress accented her slim figure beautifully and the plunging neckline adds some grown up sophistication, all the more reason to love Kristen this time around. She accessorized her dress with a Alexander McQueen men's leather belt in black to define her wait and with the same Jimmy Choo's as before. No jewellery was necessary, the sparkle on the dress was enough. 

Kristen wore her dark hair in a half-up half-down style and kept her skin fresh with only a hint of blush, she topped it off with grey smoky eye-shadow and lots of mascara. Gorgeous girl.

Nikki Reed in Marchesa - 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' LA Premiere

The last lady from the LA Premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' is Nikki Reed who I've been a fan of ever since I saw her in Thirteen years ago and she kind of always stuck with me. She really stood her ground against Kristen & Ashley in this beautiful dress which caught my attention straight away, she looks effortlessly classy and gorgeous! 

Dress: Marchesa Resort 2012 

Shoes: Jimmy Choo ''Greta'' Pumps

Nikki wore this outstanding minty, flowing dress from Marchesa's Resort 2012 collection - I was so impressed with her choice of dress, it really catapulted her into the spotlight in my opinion. The minty colour is dreamy with the gold embroidered detail on the side, waist and shoulder, the combination is delicious and something I hope to see more of. 

I think the dress is perfect for her trim figure and the flowing chiffon gives a goddess effect which the other two almost lacked plus look at the colours light up when the camera hits them, its magical! Nikki paired her gorgeous gown with gold Jimmy Choo pumps which were a perfect choice. 

Nikki completed her look with classic, cascading waves and soft smoky eye make-up - very fresh faces and lovely! Probably the best I've ever seen her look (I've said that a lot with the Twilight girls, lol). 


Ashley Greene in Donna Karan - 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' LA Premiere

Continuing from the 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' Premiere in LA, here is another leading lady Ashley Greene. Although I've never been remotely interested in Ashley in the past and I still struggle to like the girl (sorry) I couldn't help but notice she looked great on this night and definitely deserved a mention. 
As the newest face of Donna Karan its only appropriate that she wore a dress from the designer and she's luck enough to have had a custom made one!

Dress: Donna Karan Custom-Made Red Lace Gown

Ashley proved to be a knock-out in her custom-made red lace gown by Donna Karan - she genuinely looks gorgeous and the colour looks sensational on her, I think that's what initially attracted me to this look! 

Ashley's red lace gown had spiralling chiffon strips all the way around giving the illusion of fabulous curves and pretty much made this a stunning and very remember able look! She kept the accessories to a minimum with statement drop earrings and one ring, this is definitely the best Ashley has ever looked for me! 

I've always been a fan of Ashley's dark brown hair and on this occasion it looked gorgeous in tumbling waves. She paired her red dress with red nails and a red gloss - red is most definitely her colour as she looks fantastic!


Kristen Stewart in J.Mendel - 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' LA Premiere

The Twilight cast came out in full force on the 14th for the Premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' in Los Angeles. The main cast were all in attendance with the the main lady, Kristen Stewart pulling all the stops in her gorgeous gown - Kristen is always someone I look forward to seeing as she always gives something interesting and believe me she did not disappoint!

Dress: J.Mendel Spring 2012 Sequin High Slit Gown
Shoes: Jimmy Choo 'Vibe' Platform Pumps

Kristen oozed sexiness in this thigh split, iris and black sequin gown from one of her most trusted designers: J.Mendel. The stunning young actress carried this dress with a lot of confidence and sophistication - I admit I was surprised to see Kristen in something so revealing but she no doubt has the body to pull it off! 

One of the reasons I'm in love with this dress on Kristen is the colours - the iris really pops on her hair skin plus she's beautiful enough to pull something like this one. The dress had a nipped in waist to give definition but look at the way she's working that very high thigh split, damn girl!  One of her best looks ever in my opinion!

Like many others, the first thing I notice about Kristen is her very beautiful (but understated) face, the girl is a stunner! She'd pulled her raven hair in a sophisticated bun and her eye make-up was stunning and very cat-like with many different shades of purple which suits her green peepers, she remained fresh skinned with pink blush and a glossy lip. Best she's ever looked for me. 

Kristen with her two hot leading men, Robert Pattinson & Taylor Lautner. They make a mighty fine three piece!

Amanda Seyfried in Prabal Gurung - 2011 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Amanda Seyfried was one of the attendees at the 2011 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fun Awards, the red carpet stunner wore another piece from Prabal Gurung's Spring 2012 collection, making it her second overall. She looked fabulous in his designers last time and she's done it again!

Dress: Prabal Gurung Spring 2012 Feather Dress

Shoes: Nicholas Kirkwood for Prabal Gurung Spring 2012

Amanda looked sensational in this feather dress, she most definitely works the hell out of her dress and always dresses accordingly. I think the dress is very intricate and delicate which goes so well with her laid back chic style, a definite improvement from some of her recent outfits!

Amanda accessorized her dress with Nicholas Kirkwood heels which were made especially for Prabal's Spring 2012 show, while I like the heels I think she could've chosen something lighter as they provide quite a stark contrast between them and the off white dress. Having said that, I am a big fan of her dress, she looks amazing as always!

Amanda completed her look with beachy waves and soft make-up, which she does so well!

Zoe Saldana in Elie Saab - 2011 Latin Grammy Awards

The ever fashionable Zoe Saldana took my breath away a few days ago when I saw her in the following dress - speechless, all I could mutter was 'wow'. 
Fashion's newest heavy weight was wearing a traffic stopping Kelly green Elie Saab gown from the Spring 2012 collection. Zoe was only the second to wear a dress from the collection after Gwyneth Paltrow who ironically, also wore a green dress but lets get it straight, Zoe wore hers a lot better! 

Dress: Elie Saab Spring 2012 Green Sequin Gown

Zoe looked like a billion dollars in this stunning sequin dress, I literally cannot get over how beautiful she looks and how sensational the dress itself looks on her, its probably my favourite Zoe look to date. The crew neck cap sleeve gown also had a thin green belt to accent the waist - the colour is so vibrant and alive on Zoe that it almost blinds me, its magical and completely how this dress should be! If perfection existed, it would be Zoe in this gown!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, green looks better on brunettes - it pains me to say it because I'm blonde and its one of my favourite colours but its the truth, its perfect that Gwyneth who is a blonde wore a green dress too, go compare her to Zoe and you can see it for yourself. Back to Zoe, she didn't over power her dress at all by not wearing jewels (doesn't need them!) and keeping the whole look very minimalist because the dress is such a statement, who ever decided on this dress need a damn Oscar! 

Zoe perfected her look with shiny waves, her hair is the definition of perfection on this occasion and her make-up was smoky and dramatic on the eyes with the rest left muted, with all that green there is no need for any more colour! (Look at the sequins on the dress, *dies inside*). 


Blake Lively in Versace - Versace for H&M Fashion Show

Blake Lively attended the Versace for H&M Fashion Show a few nights ago along with a bevy of young Hollywood stars including co-stars Chace Crawford and Kaylee DeFer.
Blake is a regular Versace wearer so I'm not surprised to see her supporting Donatella and of course I just want her to go to more events of any kind, as long as we get pics of her looking amazing!

Dress: Versace Resort 2012 Strapless Dress

Shoes: Christian Louboutin ''Fastissima'' Ankle Boot

The lovely Blake wore this short white Versace mini dress with black detailing and studs, I'm glad to see her getting her mojo back because she was hiding her assets for a while this summer! Short dresses are Blake's signature and it being by Versace adds to the sex-appeal, she's definitely a Versace girl at its best. She let her dress do the talking by accessorizing with black tights, black blazer and black Louboutin ankle boots although I wish she'd lost the tights, show your amazing legs off! 

An even closer look at Blake's outfit, her dress is clearly quite tight - especially around the bust area but then again, Blake likes showing off her 'ladies' so no surprised there! Overall I definitely like this look on her, the dress is very pretty and suits her personality and style so its great! 

Blake completed her look with emerald earrings and ring by Lorraine Schwartz for some colour and beautifully done blonde hair. Her make-up consisted of gold eyeshadow, plenty of mascara and eyeliner along with a glossy lip. Love it!

Olivia Wilde in Louis Vuitton - ''Butter'' AFI FEST Premiere

The stunning Olivia Wilde attended the Screening of Butter at the AFI FEST Premiere a few nights ago looking very striking - the in demand actress was wearing a gorgeous look from Louis Vuitton's Spring 2012 collection, this being out first look at the collection on the red carpet. I'm surprised she got first dibs on this collection but she did look great and it definitely got my attention.

Dress: Louis Vuitton Spring 2012

Shoes: Christian Louboutin ''Sobek'' Peep Toe Pumps

Olivia wore this gorgeous peach coloured laser cut Louis Vuitton dress which also had a sheer yolk over it - as soon as I saw Olivia in this I knew I had to right about it, I thought she looked gorgeous and the colour is absolutely divine on her, she should wear it more often. 

Like her last appearance in Gucci, Olivia has once again accessorized perfectly - silver Louboutins and diamonds made up her look and each piece really complimented the other, I love this look on her! 

Olivia completed her look with a high up-do which was accessorized with a black headband and a thick flick of black eyeliner, false eyelashes, pink blush and peachy cheeks - perfect all over.

Emma Stone in Lanvin - Glamour Women of The Year Awards

In my last post I spoke of the best dressed ladies at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, Jennifer Lopez was the first and now for the final one, Emma Stone. Emma stood out among a sea of well dressed women along with J-Lo which is why I only posted about the two of them - both stood out and made a big impression.
Emma always steps up her game and this even was no different, she looked gorgeous as always and wore one of her favourite designers, Lanvin.

Dress: Lanvin Resort 2012

Shoes: Lanvin Spring 2011 Pumps

Bag: Lanvin Spring 2011 Shoulder Bag

Emma looked like an ethereal goddess in her golden yellow silk dress with two thigh splits - the colour does wonders for her pale skin and red hair. She is always wowing us with her red carpet choices and this is no different, she goes all out to and is always in the biggest designers. 

Emma's pleated dress was also accented with a contrasting grosgrain waistband to add definition and she is showing us some leg like the other best dressed lady J-Lo. Emma's gown has quite a grecian feel to it which is also why it stood out to be along with the beautiful colour which not many people wear, she accessorized with  a chain Lanvin egg clutch, nude leather Lanvin heels and a beautiful gold multi-strand Lanvin necklace - perfection. 

Emma finished her flaw free look with a wavy up-do and soft eye make-up along with a glossy lip.
