Fashion: Emmys Awards 2016 Best Dressed

I feel like it's been centuries since I created a celebrity best dressed post but the Emmys played host to a whole blunch of best dressed guys and gals.

  • Emilia Clarke wore a pale gold Atelier Versace gown with a slight pink tinge, I thought it was Vivienne Westwood at a glance because of the shape but the colour is too muted and I guess Versace is known for the sculptured shape. She kept accessories to a minimum and let all the attention be on the dress.
  • Viola Davis wore a magenta pink Marchesa dress with a beautiful emellished neck detail, it's a great colour and super flattering, not sure abou the silver clutch though.
  • Matching the glorious red carpet, Priyanka Copra wore a Jason Wu gown that was the perfect combination of floaty and fitted. Qith sleek hair and scarlet lip to match this was the look everybody raved about,
  • I absolutely adore this Zuhair Murad princess gown Kristen Bell wore, she does often go for a similar style with the deep plunge but this design is so gorgeous I don't even care. 
  • Laverne Cox was a shimmering delight in head to toe gold, including those long locks, she wore a heavily beaded Naeem Khan dress paired with a hexangal gold box clutch and a dewy tan.
  • Olivia Culpo opted for a strapless Zac Posen design, I love that it's super glam with a quirky edge. The perfect accessories make this look; white nails, earrings and a clutch with silver barely there heels and metallic make up
  • Rami Malek was dapper in a Christian Dior monochrome outfit and Christian Louboutin shoes, Malek also added a bow tie which I'm glad of a tie would have been too generic for him
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfuss was stunning in a black, sheer Carolina Herrera dress. I love everything abut this ensemble from the overlay, to the soft waves and delicate jewelery.

  • This look from Aimee Teegarden is mezmirising, the white hot Kaufman Franco dress fits her like a glove and her face is flawless. Plus those earrings are the best bling addition.
  • Another newcomer to the Emmys Stephanie Corneliussen wore a bodycon black Mike Costello gown that showed of her svelte figure, I love the cut out detailing and smart of her to slicked back that hair out of her face, anything else would be too busy. 
  • Portia Doubleday wore a slinky red Armani gown, the revealing middle worked well and wasn't too much due to every other part of her figure being covered. Golden blonde Hollywood waves kept the sex symbol look in tact.
  • America Ferrera wore a navy glittery Jenny Packham dress, sparkles can sometimes be tricky to pull off but America looked radiant.

Fashion: Oscars 2016 Best Dressed

I have been counting down the days for the OSCARS! Here is my best dressed list:

  • Priyanka Chopra wore one of my favourite designers; she looked gorgeous in a white Zuhair Murad creation that I could not stop staring at. The sweetheart, strapless dress hugged in all the right places and the floral motif overlay was stunning.
  • Naomi Watts wore a dress that her husband actually picked as she couldn't decide, kinda cute? The deep purple and indigo ombré Armani Privé glittering gown made me think of mermaids, so of course I adored it. I'm pleasantly surprised at how well the hot red lips works as well.
  • Oscar winner (!!) Alicia Vikander was the first person I added to this list, she wore a strapless lemon and silver Louis Vuitton design that was rather reminiscent of my favourite Disney princess especially with some of her dark golden hair rolled into a bun. Guess who?
  • Jennifer Garner chanelled old school Hollywood in this black Versace gown, a timeless classic this dark dress made me feel as if I was watching the Academy Awards fifty years ago-in the best way possible. 
  • Rooney Mara kept it cool in a pale Givenchy dress, she injected her punk edge by having her dark hair pinned into three neat knots and of course added a blood red lip. The detailing of the Givenchy gown is outstanding; there is so much going on but the pale colour paired with Rooney's laid back cool style makes it work.
  • Sophie Turner wore a dove grey Galvan gown that is in fact a sustainable fashion brand who Sophie has recently partnered up with, howing that beautiful clothing can be made from enviromentally friendly fabrics. Love that. Her trademark auburn locks and stunning shimmering make up completed the look.
  • Margot Robbie is back to blonde (YAY) and she partnered her beachy golden waves with a beautiful gold gown by Tom Ford that falls across her sleek physique like liquid metal, she also had black clutch with some extra long tassel detailing and simple bands on her fingers.
  • Leading Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan stunned in a rich green sequin gown with a deep v and pretty back detailing. It was a Calvin Klein custom design which explains why it was so simple yet so stylish, paired with emerald drop earrings and a soft feminine waves.

  • I was in awe of Cate Blanchett when I saw her, this seafoam Armani Privé gown is absolutely mezmerising. From the shape of the gown and the way it fits to the swarvoski diamond details and embellished flowers. I'm in love.
  • Charlize Theron looked beautiful in a bright red Christian Dior creation that had the lowest of plunging necklines, she added a long silver sparkling pendant for some glitz and kept her cropped blonde hair was slick and neat.
  • Lady GaGa always work the Hollywood screen siren look so fabulously, she wore a white Brandon Maxwell outfit paired with muted jewels and those 50s curls; dramatic but not over the top. 
  • Rachel McAdams was another blonde in a deep bottle green, I was 100% sure when I first saw photos but after watching the actual show I adore this August Getty dress and Rachel added just a few bits of metallic to up the glamour stakes.

My best dressed of the night goes to Cate Blanchett with Saoirse Ronan coming in a close second.

Fashion: Grammys 2016 Best Dressed

So it was the Grammys and a fair celebs made their way to the ultimate music ceremony, here is my best dressed, this is just a mini post of four female starlets as nobody else really blew me away:

  • Kacey Musgrave a wore a peacock inspired Armani Privé gown, I love the rich colours of this dress and the little bit of sparkle it has. She kept everything simple although I do feel like her hair could have been down or maybe a simple necklace could have worked to? Either way I love the colours and that purple lip
  • Selena Gomez wore a sultry sequin Calvin Klein number in a stunning shade of midgnight blue. I much prefer this number to the red outfit she wore later on in the night. This colour is stunning on Selena, blue is always a winner for dark hair and dark eyes. 
  • Both Davie Bowie and Lady GaGga are style icons in their own magical way and the songstress confirmed that tonight when she chanelled her inner Starman on not one but THREE ocassions throughout the evening. This was my favourite of the three, the bright orange locks and cobalt blue Marc Jacobs design adorned with some seriously stunning embellishment would have made the Brit musician proud.
  • Anna Kendrick kept it simple and stylish in a black Emanuel Ungaro dress with a sparkling mesh detail that she paired with the ultimate smokey cat eye and a funky Rauwolf clutch for an added quirk.

Fashion: 2016 Golden Globes Best Dressed

I couldn't think of a better way to get back into the swing of blogging then tackling the best dressed at 2016 Golden Globes.

  • Brie Larson was the first celebrity I saw walk the red carpet and she was an immediate hit. I love that she wore a sparkling gold gown in running with the event and went all out with smokey metallic make up, sleek golden hair and simple jewllery. I'm not suprised to learn the dress is Calvin Klein, a faavourtie of mine for red carpet events 
  • Amy Adams was a burst of orange delight in a bright Atelier Versace with divine embellishment, I love that her rich auburn hair was wavy and down, who says red heads can't wear orange? She added Neil Lane jewels for extra glamour. 
  • I love this glistening gown Carly Chalkin wore, the Juan Carlos Obando design is a mix of mermiad and gothic glamour, black sequins intertwined with turquoise and blue is such a mesmerixing look
  • Lady GaGa channled old school Holywood in this black, velvet Atelier Versace number. Everything about this looks is glorious, from the sweetheart and bardot necline to the Marilyn blow-out and silve arm candy.
  • I adore this pink dress Katy Perry rocked on Sunday night. It fits the popstar like a glove and is keeping with Katy's fun and flirty side.Word is going around that Katy added a Bump-It to her raven locks for that Bardot-esque hairstyle, whatever she used it's working. A heavy dose of jewels and pink make up making this the perfect mix of sweet and sexy.
  •  Joanne Frogatt wore a delightful cornflower blue Reem Acra dress to the awards event, Reema Acra wlays create dreamy dresses that glide perfectly and this was no different. A silver Judith Leiber clutch and slciked back hair kept this look simple yet stylish
  • Kate Bosworth was a glorious, glitzy image of pink and silver sequins when she turned up at the event in this strapless Dolce and Gabbana dress. With such an attention-grabbing gown Kate was right to keep the styling to a minimum.
  • Malin Akerman was all smiles as she walked the red carpet in this stunning silver Reem Acra piece, I'm not usually a fan of strapless or peplum but Malin was definitely in my top 5 ensembles of the evening.
  • Taraji P Henson worked this angelic white Stella McCartney creation with confidence and ease. The Empire actress was radiant in the sleek design and somehow made a simple white dress the sassiest of them all
  • The queen of pretty much everything, J.Lo, wore a gorgeous bright yellow Giambattista Valli gown to the red carpet. With such a show-stopping, wonderfully over the top dress most people would tone down everything else but not Jenny from the block. The latino lady addeed a dark red lip, silver Jimmy Choos and coated herself in Harry Winston jewels and as with everything she does it worked a treat.
  • I love that Jamie Alexander took a colour and ran with it. The jade gown by Genny makes her green eyes pop beautifully as it is but when you add the emerald earrings, matching ring and a flick of racing green liner to the look Jamie is an image of pure beauty.
  • One of the most consistently stylish ladies to walk the red carpet, Jenna Dewan-Tatum was a delight as she atteded the Globes. She wore a deep blue Zuhair Murad dress that was embellished with an array of sparkling silver and metallic blue sequins.
