To celebrate a new slew of red carpet-themed games, Ladbrokes recently challenged me to create a red carpet look based on ASOS items alone. Naturally, the first thing that came to mind was an homage to Angelina’s Leg.
In addition to the leg and its many wannabes at the 2013 Golden Globes, I opted for something in the trendsetting colour from the Globes: black. Because I was not predispositioned with the sky-high-leg gene like Miss Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, I paired the maxi dress and its thigh-high split with a pair of 5.5-inch ASOS Peace platforms with a tonal heel. To finish it off? A pair of plexi-looking brooch spike earrings. For under £100, you couldn’t get much more on-trend!
14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld could easily make women twice…thrice…her age green with envy. The beautiful teen was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar thanks to her performance in True Grit. Then, she shows up at events like the SAG Awards and Golden Globes wearing prime candidates for best dressed lists (Prada and Prabal Gurung, respectively). To follow, she gets front row seats to the best of Fashion Week. Now? She has just been announced as the face of Prada’s younger line, Miu Miu.
To Hailee’s stylist, Karla Welch –
JOB WELL DONE. I can’t wait for this.
Awards season fashion deserves a standing ovation this year. The 2011 SAG (Screen Actor’s Guild) Awards are usually a hotpot of missteps – a tradition stylist-ly avoided this year! One of my favourites? January Jones. This ornate number by Carolina Herrera has the most incredible cut and detail. WORK, Betty Draper.
After her Black Swan co-star Natalie Portman wore this exact palette on her Viktor & Rolf gown at the Golden Globes, we have Mila Kunis‘ version a la Alexander McQueen‘s 2011 resort collection. Cartier bracelet to top it off. Imagine a black carpet to see it at it’s best.
15-year-old True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld deserves a round of applause for picking the ugliest dress from Prada’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, lengthening it, and killing it. How does she do it? The hot pink nails, Solange Azagury-Partridge lips ring and matching lipstick certainly help.
Dexter’s Julia Stiles looked the best I have ever seen her last night. Her Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2011 navy and white ombre gown was the perfect level of eye-catching and was perfectly accessorized via vintage jewels and Jimmy Choo‘s “Mini Tube” clutch.
Because I love Tina Fey, I try to avoid looking at her red carpet ensembles. My theory is that she either a) gets drunk before dressing or b) has the world’s most hateful stylist. Things have finally changed – just look at her in this brilliant red column gown by Oscar de la Renta. Smashing.
The Golden Globes were pretty impressive this year; even the bad dresses were good. Third favourite? Olivia Wilde in Marchesa and Christian Louboutin. Clashing and unapologetic as an ensemble should ever be. Now for first and second! View Post
Last night, Leighton Meester wore an ornate, long Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011 dress to the Golden Globes. The night before, the Gossip Girl was at the Art of Elysium sporting a Louis Vuitton dress and clutch along with Roger Vivier heels, combined with another face of elegant, minimalist makeup. I just can’t quit you, Meester.
