What They Wore: Cannes 2015 Best Dressed

Cannes-2015-Poppy-Delevingne
I love Cannes fashion. Most of the time celebs aren’t afraid to make style statements on the croisette, and we get to feast our eyes on over-the-top gowns, as well as the more subdued, real-life-appropriate day outfits. It’s a win-win!

This year, I found the fashions particularly inspiring, with some of the world’s most stylish leading ladies all over the red carpet, I had a tough time picking my faves. Diane Kruger, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Sienna Miller, Lupita Nyong’o, and many others brought their A-game to Cannes, and it was glorious.

I know that the festival isn’t over just yet, and I’ll update this post as more photographs become available, but in the meantime, let’s enjoy Poppy Delevingne in her exquisite CHANEL gown, the always regal Cate Blanchett in an otherworldly Giles creation, Diane Kruger in the most adorable Dolce and Gabbana dress, and many more.

Share your faves in comments and stay tuned for more beautiful looks from Cannes 2015!

What They Wore: Met Gala 2015 Recap

Robert-Pattinson-FKA-Twigs-Met-Gala-2015
Ok, so first things first – to me, The Met Gala is all about taking risks, embracing the theme, and going all out. This event is not the time to pull out your LBD, your prom dress (I’m looking at you, Elizabeth Banks!), or your ice-skating get up (unless the theme is ice-skating, that is). With that said, I don’t think Beyonce, who so many consider the Best Dressed of the evening, brought her A-game. She wore a gown that revealed a lot of skin, not unlike JLo, and completely failed at embracing the night’s theme – “China: Through the Looking Glass”, and while my top picks are probably not going to be crowd-pleasers, I firmly stand by my choices.

My top looks of the night included FKA Twigs in a crazy-cool Christopher Kane dress (yes that’s a penis, and no, Robert Pattinson does not deserve her hotness), Georgia May Jagger in an Asian-inspired Gucci robe, Solange in a Giles Deacon flying saucer amazingness, which totally did not adhere to the dress code, but was so bonkers I loved it, Chloe Sevigny in a very theme-appropriate JW Anderson creation that is sure to land her on some Worst Dressed lists, but I thought she pulled off flawlessly…I also loved Grace Coddington in silk pajamas. I know, it’s pajamas…but it’s Grace effing Coddington, and she had a flight right after…and she looks awesome and comfy.

In other Met Gala news, SJP wore a dress designed by H&M (!!!), and Emily Ratajkowski wore a pretty Topshop frock…fast fashion on the Met Gala red carpet? I never thought I’d see the day. I loved Dakota Johnson’s CHANEL handbag, which was super cute…and while her disco-ball dress did look smashing on her, perhaps she should’ve opted for something a little more fancy. I have to say that I didn’t love Rihanna’s “omelet” gown, but I’ll take it over what Kanye West’s wife wore any day…Also, there’s a photo I can’t find right now, one where Rihanna’s going up the red stairs and it looks like an image from a fairy tale. Points to RiRi for taking a risk.

I also thought Anne Hathaway, Miley Cyrus, Carey Mulligan, Diane Kruger, and Keri Russell deserve shout-outs for their awesome outfits last night…they weren’t my faves for the occasion, but were notable nonetheless. Lastly, Emily Blunt looked lovely in a caped Prada…but there’s something about this look that’s just not doing it for me…perhaps if it was in a different colour?

So here you have it, my recap of the Met Gala 2015…Share your faves after the jump!

Golden Globes 2015: Best Dressed

First of all, I had a blast live-tweeting with all of you last night! We didn’t always agree about our best dressed picks, and we didn’t always agree about the winners, but I’d like to think we kept it pretty civilized. And while I may be a bit late with my best dressed picks, I still wanted to post them, because there were SO MANY looks that I actually loved last night. Let’s get to it!

Golden-Globes-2015-Best-Dressed-Naomi-Watts
Naomi Watts was one of the first looks of the night that I loved. I have a weakness for yellow gowns on the red carpet, and this Gucci number was perfection on Naomi. Beautifully accompanied by a statement Bulgari necklace and a bold lip, this one was a clear winner.

Golden-Globes-2015-Best-Dressed-Emma-Stone
This Lanvin jumpsuit on Emma Stone was one of my absolute fave red carpet looks ever. It’s perfect for Emma and her quirky sense of style. The beaded top made this dressy enough for the red carpet, and that humongous bow at the back brought the drama. LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS.

Golden-Globes-2015-Best-Dressed-Keira-Knightley-Chanel
I LOVED what Keira Knightley wore last night. A lot of people hated this CHANEL number, but not I. It’s quirky and different, but still intricate and oh-so-stunning. I can imagine that it was even better in person. If I had to change anything, I’d make it a bit longer, or a bit shorter, as the length seems just a bit off. But other than that, Keira really did glow on that carpet last night.

Golden-Globes-2015-Best-Dressed-Dakota-Johnson
Dakota Johnson in CHANEL Haute Couture Fall 2014 made my heart beat faster. Back in September, I got a chance to see this gown at the CHANEL showroom in New York, and ever since then, I’ve been wondering which celeb would be cool enough to wear it on the red carpet. The top part of the gown is made out of grey concrete beads, somehow a perfect nod to that movie Dakota will be starring in next month, non?

Style Fille: Emily Blunt

Emily-Blunt-Osman-edge-of-tomorrow

Last week, I was invited to attend the Toronto premiere of Edge of Tomorrow – the latest Tom Cruise action flick set in the dystopian future. I went to the screening, not expecting anything extraordinary, and was actually wowed by two things…

1. Tom Cruise…actual Tom Cruise showed up at the theater, gave a little speech, and took a “selfie” with the audience (yours truly included). So random, but also pretty cool.

2. How much I actually loved the movie. While I won’t spoil it for you, I have to say that the premise – Groundhog Day meets the Matrix – was mind-blowingly good, and Emily Blunt was even better. I simply can’t get enough of strong female protagonists and Blunt as “Full Metal Bitch” was perfection. Strong, smart, beautiful, and not at all Cruise’s “spear-carrier”. If you’re looking for a thrilling summer blockbuster, this is it. I actually want to see it again, that’s how fun it was.

But let’s look at Emily Blunt’s just as thrilling wardrobe choices that she selected for her 24-hour London/Paris/New York whirlwind premiere circuit. First up, she wore a sweet, printed Osman dress to the London premiere, leaving her hair and makeup soft, and looking like the antithesis of “Full Metal Bitch”. Next up, she leathered-up in a David Koma skirt and top combo at the Paris screening. And while I actually loved this edgy combo (though maybe not those shoes), my favourite of the three was the glam Prada gown that she wore in New York. It was classic, and sexy, and just perfect for her. I also loved the fuchsia lip colour, and the pink pair of shoes that she chose to wear with her scarlet frock. Red and pink look so fresh together, and much better than the boring/expected red and black.

So what about you? Did you like Emily’s three red carpet looks? Which of the three is your fave? Share in the comments.

Golden Globes 2013: Best Dressed

best-dressed-golden-globes-2013-kerry-washington-miu-miu

Last night’s Golden Globes did not disappoint. Don’t you think? I truly loved Amy and Tina hosting the show, but I wish I’d seen a bit a lot more of them during the broadcast. Watching the red carpet broadcast before the show, and live-tweeting it was also a ton of fun for me. Thanks to those of you who participated in the best/worst debates! It made watching the Globes alone in my pjs a lot more social. So on to my personal best dressed list.

There were quite a few celebs last night that wowed me with their picks (or their stylists’ picks). Let’s get started, shall we? First up, we have Kerry Washington in Miu Miu. To me, this was an unexpected and perhaps a bit casual choice, but it felt fresh and interesting, and it wasn’t a mermaid-cut gown, and I loved it. Kerry has really been killing it lately in the style department, and this look is no exception.

Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen. That body! That hair! That dress! Sublime.

best-dressed-nicole-richie-naeem-khan-golden-globes-2013

Nicole Richie wore a stunning sparkling blue Naeem Khan gown, looking fresh, classy, and so-so-so beautiful! Can you believe that this is the same woman from that reality show starring Paris Hilton? Me neither.

best-dressed-golden-globes-2013-katharine-mcphee-theyskens

When I saw Katharine McPhee in this amazing Theyskens Theory dress, I gasped. It is everything an LBD should be – sexy, elegant, and stunning. I could do away with those plastic straps on her shoes, but other than that, from her hair and make-up, to her choice of accessories, McPhee is a vision in black.

SAG Awards 2012 Favorites

We might fight about my SAG favorites, but to be quite honest…I was so bored, I don’t even have a true-blue favorite anyway. The reason I chose these 3 lovely ladies as my top picks is because…to me, they provided a bit of excitement, in an otherwise (pretty) sea of boring.

First up is Shailene Woodley in a beautiful L’Wren Scott gown – age-appropriate, and oh-so-lovely. Loved the print, loved her simple hair and makeup, loved the lack of accessories. Loved this entire look.

Next, we have Emily Blunt in a gorgeous lime green Oscar de la Renta gown. Yes, the silhouette is nothing new…but the color! I am all over this color for Emily. She looked fresh, stunning, and radiant.

Last, but not least, I adored Rose Byrne’s Elie Saab jumpsuit. I thought it was very flattering, and she just looked so good! It was infinitely more interesting, than yet another red gown on the red carpet…no matter how exquisite.

What do you think of my SAG Awards favorites? Let me know in the comments!
