Fashion: Emmys 2014 Best Dressed

It was the Primetime Emmys on Sunday night, here are my best dressed from the glorious red carpet event.
  • Viola Davis wore a cobalt blue Escada dress which had some stunning embellishment and I love the sweetheart neckline too. The colour is radiant against her skintone and the styling is pefect
  • Kate Walsh wore a gorgeous yellow Stephane Rolland Haute Couture gown which fitted like a glove and showed her redheads really can rock any colour, she paired it with glittering Chopard jewels
  • Kate Mara showed her quirky sense of style in a white J Mendel creation with an intricate floral detailing on the bodice and a pair of gorgeous Charlotte Olympia platforms
  • Alison Williams looked every inch the princess in this beautiful Giambattista Valli Couture prom dress, I love the tulle bottom and the patterned top with the black and yellow ribbon worked beautifully

  • Kristen Wiig was ravishing in a white Vera Wang dress, simple yet sophisticated the dress was designed especially for her, the golden skin and beach waves work well on this low key yet beautiful style
  • Kerry Washington wore a burnt orange and black Prada dress with matching Prada black pumps, I love this dress the sparkling sequin detail and the black sparkling underlay too, such an interesting design and Kerry wears it well
  • Natalie Dormer was another in orange and black and much like Kate Mara she wore J Mendel, the high-necked, fitted dress and waves offered the sexy look I'm sure she was going for
  • Jessica Pare wore a black dress which could have been a little boring but this Lanvin beauty is anything but, the draped skirt and the 3D bustier is gorgeous and I love the simple diamond necklace
  • Lena Headey wore an all black ensemble, dress by Rubin Singer, which suited her punky style down to a T, I initially though the platforms were too heavy but any daintier would be the rocky Lena Headey we all know and love
  • Keke Palmer was another in Rubin Singer, she wore a stunning bright blue gown that was one of the most dramatic looks of the night and I thought she looked completely breath-taking
  • I honestly was totally wowed by Lizzy Caplan, I love the actress anyway but she looked phenomenal in a monochrome Donna Karen Atelier gown with cut out detailing and a slick up do
  • Laura Prepon was another brunette who looked beautiful, the shimmering turquoise Gusatvo Cadile gown was rather mermaid like and looked stunning against her porcelain skin and light eyes, she makes me like my pale skin (if only for a minute.)

It was a toss up between Laura and Lizzy but I went for Lizzy Caplan in the end purely because when I saw her I gasped! I honestly have never seen her look so wonderful.

Fashion: Drop Dead Clothing Crazy Life Collection

Drop Dead Clothing lead a crazy life
Oli Sykes is back with another wildly wacky and wonderful Drop Dead clothing line this time inspired by tattoos, kids, cartoons and internet culture; take a look at the Crazy Life Collection.
Having already had great success with Itchy and Scratchy and Sega Classics the Drop Dead team are taking inspiration from the their youth as well as things that stimulate and excite such as the three dot tattoo AKA Mi Vida Loca, internet culture and high end fashion.
This time around they are using the latest printing technology, ensuring customers receive the highest quality products out there, whilst they continue to use the most up to date techniques and materials they are also experimenting with fits, shapes and styles to ensure they are offering the best they can to their consumers.

As always with Drop Dead Clothing the designs for The Crazy Life range are bold, brave and completely uncompromising, you don’t wear a Drop Dead piece of clothing half-heartedly, there is no way to rock a white which reads ‘Don’t F**king talk to me’ without confidence and a grin on your face. The same could be said for the sleeveless top that simply reads ‘Ugh’ and the black gym bag with ‘DEAD’ printed across it in large white writing.
Whilst the prints are delightfully cheeky and a little ‘in your face’ there is an element of nostalgia to all of the designs from Drop Dead, the creators seem to be equally inspired by their own youth as they are the youth of today. The ‘crazy life’ smiley face, alien print and marble effect are all reminiscent of 80s and 90s fashion with a modern twist to bring us back to 2014.
As always with Drop Dead Clothing you are sure to find something that makes you grin, laugh or gasp whether you love it or hate it The Crazy Life Collection will make even the sanest of people a little crazy, and what’s wrong with that?
Available online and in their London and Sheffield stores now, head over to the website to check it out.

Fashion: Teen Choice Awards 2014 Best Dressed

This looked like such a fun event with everybody looking rather summery and in beautiful colours, prints and textures.
Check out my top 12 below:

  • Chloe Grace Moretz wore a super cute red and black ensemble by Valentino paired with her favourite Nudist heeled sandals. The actress is so stylish and always dresses great for her body shape, age and offers her own individual take on fashion. 
  • Jennifer Lopez wore the same green, lace Elie Saab dress Toni Garn wore in my Best Dressed from July. Dare I say I prefer JLO's styling? Those shoes her stunning!
  • Shay Mitchell looked beautiful as always in the white lace two piece from Misha Collection, the dark red lips and metallic heels are the perfect addition, flawless as always.
  • Petite actress Lucy Hale was super hot in a red Dior mini with some studded Brian Atwood heels that added a cool edge to the outfit
  • Odeya Rush was another in red, she was definitely the most 'dressed up' for the event but why not? I adore this Monique Lhullier gown, the detailing on the bodice is stunning and the colour looks stunning against her porcelain skin
  • Nina Dobrev is back on the list. Are you shocked? She wore a brightly coloured Vionnet cropped top and shorts combination which had a slight metallic tinge, she added a pair of hot pink Kurt Geiger heels and a fishtail braid 
  • Cher Lloyd wore a black Amen bodysuit and Thoery shorts, it looks a little like a playsuit and I love it. She kept the styling and make up simple which works perfectly with such a detailed ensemble
  • Taylor Swift wore a pretty green Novis cropped down and skirt paired with a pair of yellow Charlotte Olympia heels. Taylor is always chic and demure and I love how summery this whole ensemble is

  • Demi Lovato wore a cream, embellished Elisabetta Franchi mini dress with gold heels and a matching clutch with her ombre in a wavy bob, gorgeous.
  • Bella Thorne wore a beautiful azure blue dress by Candies with matching heeled pumps, I love when red heads were blue, this look is fabulous, Bella always nails it.
  • Kim Kardashian was one of the new in black,  zebra, monochrome and leather to be exact, of course the cropped top and pencil skirt was Balmain, I wasn't set on the shoes bu the clothing and beauty side is so very strong I can let it pass
  • Lea Michele was all smiles in a Fausto Puglisi block coloured mini paired with silver Christian Louboutin sandals. A fun, girly look from the Glee star with a sunkissed wavy hairstyle
Best dressed from these 12 goes to Shay Mitchell, I nearly picked her co star because I think Lucy Hale looks just as gorgeous but Shay's dark lips win it for me.
