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.
