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?

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!

Elbows up, ladies.

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!

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.

Could she look any more perfect, you guys? Lupita Nyong’o attended the Golden Globe Awards 2014…and she came to play! To be honest, in a sea of sparkly and somewhat boring gowns, Lupita wore this caped Ralph Lauren gown and made it look like haute couture. Best dressed. Hands down. I finally watched 12 Years a Slave, and I have to say…she was so good in it. So not only does this girl have some serious style, she’s got major acting skills too. She’s definitely one to watch during award season. Imagine her at the Oscars?! So excited!

As you may have noticed, there hasn’t been a Diane Kruger fashion post on this site for a while now. I was starting to go through Kruger withdrawal, until I finally noticed this outfit, and all was right with the world again. This Valentino Couture gown is a work of art. So what if you can see her black panties? It’s still an exquisite gown on an exquisite woman. As usual, Diane was smart to keep the hair and make-up toned down and let the dress shine instead. Don’t you wish you had one of these in your closet? The dress! Not Diane Kruger, silly.

How great does Lupita Nyong’o look in this sleek Prabal Gurung tuxedo dress? With purple lipstick, white pumps, and a Charlotte Olympia domino clutch, she’s a vision in black and white. And the best part – she looks comfortable, happy, and poised. Now that’s how you do red carpet!

Happy Monday, lovelies! Hope you had a great weekend. After two days of lazying around, watching movies, eating Georgian food, and shopping at Yorkdale, I am bracing myself for a rough week at work, so I am getting my week started with my favourite – Diane Kruger in Chanel with Joshua Jackson by her side. Somehow those two always manage to put a smile on my face.
Diane’s dress is a gorgeous sequined Chanel cocktail frock that probably costs more than a mid-size sedan, and Pacey’s denim tuxedo jacket is a perfect alternative to the classic, but oh-so-tired black dinner blazer. Great looks for all of those upcoming holiday parties, non? Yup, I went there! It’s November 4th, which means that the holidays are just around the corner…but I’ll leave that for another post…or ten. For now, let’s just get through this Monday.

If you’d told me that Sandra Bullock was 39, I would totally believe you, but the fact is…she’s actually 49! Almost 50 and looking better than ever. How the heck does she do it?! Sandra wore this lovely lace Stella McCartney number to the London premiere of Gravity and I have to say that she looks better now than she did when she was in her 20s. Her hair is sensational, her skin is glowing, and those legs! I am only 29, and I would have to work out for 3 years daily in order to be in the shape she’s in. You heard it here first – 50 is the new 20.
I can’t wait to watch Gravity this weekend. The critics’ ratings are amazing, and the word of mouth is also pretty solid, so yeah…sign me up!
