What They Wore: Chanel No. 5 “The One That I Want” Party

Chanel-No5-Crystal-Renn

Speaking of amazing parties…What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall at this CHANEL bash! Earlier this week, the brand celebrated the release of the latest CHANEL No 5 “The One That I Want” ad campaign, shot by Baz Luhrmann, and starring Gisele Bundchen. And while the short film is definitely mesmerizing, this time, I couldn’t take my eyes off the stylish attendees instead. Just look at Crystal Renn! That gown! That hair! That makeup! So damn beautiful! And Poppy Delevingne! I’m in love with her kaleidoscopic dress and bright clutch. Granted, I’m not as obsessed with Poppy as I am with Crystal, but finally seeing pieces from the CHANEL Dubai Cruise 2015 collection outside of the context of a fashion show is definitely making my heart beat faster. Here’s hoping more celebs will wear these stunners to red carpet premieres and such – SO much potential here.

As for the belle of the ball – Gisele – well, she looked beautiful, of course, as she always does, but my heart belongs to Crystal Renn and her starry gown, and her fierce eyebrows, and her flawless face. Dear Karl, I nominate Crystal for the next CHANEL campaign. Please and thank you.

Lupita Nyong’o Covers American VOGUE

lupita-nyongo-vogue-cover

Finally an American VOGUE cover I can get excited about! After the disaster that was Kimye cover, I was so pleased to see the gorgeous Lupita Nyong’o on the cover of the July 2014 issue. And while the styling of the cover itself is pretty blah, her beauty radiates and improves it tenfold. Luckily, the rest of the photos are much better. Set in Marrakech, this shoot really inspired me to look into packing my bags and jetting off to Morocco for a week – to explore the bazaars, chill at the hammam, and just lounge around looking drop-dead-gorgeous and Lupita-like. I mean…that photo of her on the couch…she looks incredible!

So there you have it…first VOGUE puts a reality TV famewhore on the cover, and then follows up with an uber-talented loveliest and smartest actress around…Colour me confused. But since an American VOGUE cover is till a huge deal (sorry, Victoria Beckham), this is yet another win for Lupita, who’s already had a pretty kick-ass year so far. You go, girl!

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.

Style Fille: Cate Blanchett in Cannes 2014

cate-blanchett-delpozo-cannes-2014

The moment I saw that Delpozo outfit that Cate Blanchett wore at Cannes this year, I knew I had to post about it. I am freaking IN LOVE with this entire look, but if I could just get my hands on that top, I would wear it all the time…ALL THE TIME! So after my initial OMFGINEEDTHISSHELOOKSSOGOOD freakout was over, I decided to see what else Cate The Great wore at Cannes, and here it is…or rather here they are – three looks from one festival – all perfect.

Apart from the casual-ish Delpozo look, Cate also wore a stunning Givenchy gown that stole my heart away, and an elaborate Valentino creation that I suppose could look a bit boring and been-there-done-that, but not on Cate. Somehow, whatever this woman wears ends up looking better, more regal, more expensive… And thus, I love all three looks. Do you? Tell me which Cannes outfit is your fave in the comments, and if you see that scalloped Delpozo top on sale (or a similar one), please give me a shout. I NEED IT IN MY LIFE!

Lupita Nyong’o is Most Beautiful!

lupita-nyongo-people-magazine-most-beautiful-woman

Lupita Nyong’o has had quite a year so far! She bagged an Oscar, landed a Lancôme campaign, and now, she gets to reign as People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman. What an incredible run for this inspiring woman. What I find most compelling about Lupita is how truly grateful she seems about every single bit of recognition. I love that she chooses to project a very positive and encouraging message every time she speaks. And I love how smart this woman is. Of course, she’s gorgeous and stylish to boot, but it’s her inner beauty that captured the adoration of both Hollywood and the world. Here’s hoping that she gets some great roles worthy of her talent soon. Come on, Hollywood!

Style Fille: Emma Watson

emma-watson-giambattista-valli

Just as I started to feel like I will never see something new and fresh on the red carpet, I’m proven wrong…and I love it! I mean, just look at this stunning Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress that Emma Watson wore on the red carpet parquet floor at the Elle Style Awards 2014! It’s daring, it’s fun, it’s so effing cool, and I want it on my body. Love how the skirt is an exaggerated bow, love the sequined “crop-top”, and love that Emma chose to go relatively jewel-free for the occasion, letting the dress be the star of the show. Love it all!

This is what I’ve been craving lately. More creativity on the red carpet, and less beige blah embroidered mermaid-skirted “Taylor-Swiftness”. Is that too much to ask?

Style Fille: Miu Miu Women’s Tale Event

Hailee-Steinfeld-Miu-Miu_NYFW_2014_Cat_Coat

Ok, first things first…THAT CAT WALLPAPER! I NEED IT IN MY LIFE AND I DON’T CARE WHAT I HAVE TO DO TO OWN IT! Now that that’s taken care of, let’s talk fashion, shall we?

Earlier this week Miu Miu threw a party to celebrate the release of its latest installment of the Women’s Tales series in New York. The star-studded guest list included Hailee Steinfeld, Alexa Chung, Solange Knowles, Sami Gayle, and Anna Dello Russo with her dress twin Giovanna Battaglia (they did the right choice!). Most attendees wore Miu Miu Spring 2014 designs, with some Prada and Carven thrown in for good measure, and I honestly loved it all! Obviously, Hailee’s cat-print coat wins at life right now, but I could also get down with Alexa’s dreamy dress…and about anything else at that party. Though I won’t be buying any of those pieces full-price, I will do my darndest to try and find it at The Mall, or at SPACE in a year or so. Fingers crossed!

What about you? Are you as into these looks as I am? Share in the comments!

Style Fille: Diane Kruger in Erdem

diane-kruger-erdem-stand-up-to-cancer-charity

Oh how I missed Diane Kruger here on Style Blog! And Pacey too, of course, but Diane especially. Nothing she wore (recently) has elicited any excitement from me…until now! This Erdem getup is a nice comeback. I love everything about it – the print, the fit, the choice of accessories, and hair and makeup. Everything. She looks happy, pretty, and as stylish as ever. Welcome back, DK! We missed you!

Style Fille: Lupita Nyong’o on Dazed and Confused

lupita-nyongo-dazed-cover

Guys, is this not the most stunning magazine cover you’ve seen in a while?! Because I am in awe – perfect makeup, fun clothes, gorgeous cover girl. I also feel ready to make a grand proclamation – Lupita Nyong’o is my new style crush. Move over, Diane Kruger (I still love you though)! I realize that Lupita was styled by a team of stylists for this photo, and she most likely has a stylist for all those major outings too, but somehow, she’s able to say “yes” and perhaps more importantly “no” to all the right pieces, which results in her looking fantastic on the red carpet 99.9% of the time, which means that our girl Lupita’s got some major style chops of her own. I have yet to see her look anything but chic and poised, and every outing, every photo make me want more.

What do you think about Lupita Nyong’o’s style? Are you as into her as I am? Share in the comments!
