Fashion: September 2014 Best Dressed

Check me out finally posting a best dressed list at the right time! 

  • A favourite of mine Jessica Chastain wore a stunning prom style Oscar de la Renta dress to Deauville American Film Festival. The raspberry ensemble is glorious against her porcelain skin and fiery waves
  • Cara Delevigne rocked a blue velvet Emilio Pucci androgynous look at Vogue London Fashion Week Dinner. I love how mannish the blazer dress but the chic heels and smokey eyes are a hot contrast
  • Another love, Emily Blunt attended George Clooney's wedding wearing a beautiful bright turquoise Emilio Pucci embellished gown paired with pink lips, stunning jewels and a sleek bob
  • Diane Kruger, ever the style chameleon, wore a Prabal Guring creation to InStyle 20th Celebration. This is such a mix of colours, styles and shapes but Diane makes it work wonderfully and I love the hot pink clutch next to the pastel outfit

  • I originally put this in my August Best Dressed but it just missed the mark! I simply love the rich colour of the Mary Katrantzou dress and the hot pink heels Amanda Seyfriend wore to Toronto Film Festival. Her hair is a little lackluster but the dress is enough for me
  • The only guy on my list is Eddie Redmayne, he wore a perfectly tailored teal suit from Burberry Prorsum also at Toronto Film Festival, this is such a classic shape but the colour and bold blue accessories ante up the edge
  • Kate Beckinsale rocked a nude Azzaro Couture jumpsuit at the same event. Her golden tan, dark nails and mini clutch, not to mention that gloriously voluminous hair all add to the appeal of this look
  • Ever the quirky fashionista, Dakota Fanning wore a purple and mint green Kenzo dress paired with cobalt blue heeled sandals by the same designer as she attended Fashion Week. Dakota is constantly exciting to watch on the red carpet.

  • Alexandra Daddario wore a breath-taking royal purple lace Reem Acra gown as she attended Venice Film Festival Premiere. Paired with side-swept Hollywood waves and bold red lip this is exactly how to work the ultimate rec carpet look. I adore this from head to toe.
  • Jourdan Dunn wore a delightful pastel blue quilted Moschino co ord as she attended London Fashion Week Day, the cute ensemble was given a rocky twist with the gold chain and those to die for pumps. Very Cher Horowitz
  • Another young style icon who is always a dream to see on the red carpet, is Chloe Grace Moretz. She was looking beautiful in Christian Dior Couture at Toronto Film Festival. This is such a wonderful dress and she more than does it justice, I love that it is clearly trademark Dior but the black panel and over size mesh detailing give it enough edge to suit Chloe's style.
  • Model and brunette Beauty Emily Ratajkowski was looking red hot in this slinky bardot SAFiYAA number as she attended the premiere of Gone Girl in NYC. Her long waves and the dress were enough, no extra styling was required to make this a Best Dressed Contender.
Overall September was a pretty strong month from everybody. My best dressed definitely goes to Alexandra Daddarrio, I think partly because this is exactly the type of dress I would love to own!

Fashion: August 2014 Best Dressed

Better late than never, here we have best dressed from my birthday month. Everybody was on form :D

  • I was torn between two extremely different looks from Jessica Alba but went for this candy pink dress by Antonio Beradi as she attended Good Morning America, I love the sleek hair and the contrasting silver platforms.
  • Kiernan Shipka, ever the stylish teen, wore a delightful yellow Giambattista Valli dress with black Nudist sandals and a thin black belt to oull the look together. 
  • My ultimate icon in regards to EVERYTHING, Demi Lovato wore a fab black Luca Couture ruffled dress and paired it with a white chiffon jacket and a pair of Jeffrey Campbell boots to give that classic Demi edge
  • The day Nina Dobrev doesn't make it my best dressed list will be a sad one! The Vampire Diaires actress wore a funky tribal printed Zuhair Murad mini dress and black heels as she attended the Lets Be Cops premiere
  • Sophia Bush wowed in a gorgeous lemon Maria Lucia Hohan outfit with silver metallic peep toes, this dress is simply breath-taking variety and women in film  
  • Megan Fox has been rocking some serious mini dresses as she promotes The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I particularly loved this cream Marc Jacobs mini she owre, the Christian Louboutin clutch and those gorgeous waves are the ideal accompaniment
  • Kim Kardashian West has also been on form recently, I adored this black Givenchy skirt and nude Prada sandals she wore as she was out and about in NYC
  • Sometimes the popstar can fail to make a statement but this time Iggy Azalea completely nailed it in this bright orange bodycon number Cushnie et Ochs  SLS Las Vegas Hotel Grand Opening

  • Dakota Fanning wore head to toe Miu Miu at the Venice Film Festival, I do love the dress but the platforms and the clutch are what I really love about this, such a stunning shade of green
  • Sarah Hyland made an appearance at Audi celebrates the Emmys and this is possibly my favourite look from Sarah. She has come so far in regards to style and this monochrome Alice + Olivia playsuit is such a hit, paired with a fishtail braid and Jimmy Choo is is perfectly sexy
  • Kylie Jenner wore a urban inspired all black outfit as she celebrated her DuJour magazine cover, she paired the cropped top and sports luxe trousers a pair of Christin Louboutin Impera lace up pumps
  • Priyanka Chopra was at the music launch of her latest film Mary Kom where she wore the beautiful duck egg blue Rachel Gilbert outfit, the photo does not do it justice and elegant doesn't seem like a strong enough word, she looks so beautifully chic
Best dressed for August out of these 12 ladies goes to Sophia Bush, I really adore the dress and her styling is so on point

Fashion: Barbie's Very Own Fashion Line

Mattel Inc partners up with three fashion labels to create Barbie inspired clothing lines
The most famous toy manufacturing company around, Mattel, will be partnering up with Forever 21, Wildfox and Lord & Taylor to create a fashion range inspired by their most famous creation; Barbie.
Since its launch in 1959 the Barbie doll has become one of the most popular toys ever to be created with a whole host of memorabilia and merchandise not to mention movies, TV shows, make up lines and music inspired by the infamous plastic toy, fifty five years after its birth Mattel have decided to officially pair up with numerous fashion brands to create a much-anticipated clothing line for the Barbie Girl in all of us.
Lord & Taylor are taking notes from Barbie circa the 1950s with a 12 piece sleepwear collection priced around the £20 mark and available to purchase from September 14th.
The second fashion retailer Mattel have on board is Wildfox, an L.A based celeb favourite that is famous for creating cute and quirky knitwear with a vintage feel. Wildfox will be designing an 8-piece set titled “The Wildfox Dreamhouse” that will go live in November, the most expensive of the bunch with prices starting at £22 and reaching £110, The Wildfox Dreamhouse range will be based on the fashion of the Malibu Barbie from the 80s.
Finally, Forever 21 are using the 90’s Barbie style for inspiration and will be the first to drop their collection on September 5th, it will feature a range of cosmetics, accessories and clothing and will be the most affordable with a starting price of just £2!
Mattel claims that the clothes will be suitable for all age ranges and with the style inspiration spanning over several decades there is no doubt that the designs will evoke some serious nostalgia for all of those whose childhood dream was to dress just like Barbie.
