Celebrities Love…Juan Carlos Obando

The past few weeks have been sort of like a welcome back to the red carpet for Juan Carlos Obando.

His gorgeous designs have made their way onto the well toned bodies of many celebs lately, and we can’t help but take notice.

Michelle Monaghan and Rose McGowan have both recently worn the designers vibrantly hued dresses whilst attending events.

The watercolour of Michele’s dressed stood out against her skin and complimented her dark hair, whilst Rose’s plunging neckline and flared skirt infused sex appeal while maintaining feminine appeal.

Jena Malone has worn Juan Carlos Obando on two separate occasions whilst promoting her latest movie “Sucker Punch.”

Her independent spirit fits in perfectly with the Juan Carlos design aesthetic; to seduce while evoking confidence and inspiration.

There’s a laid-back but polished appeal to his designs, that make it perfect for independent and big name premieres.

Juan’s hand-dyed and brightly coloured fabrics fit in perfectly with the bold colour pops that are on trend for Spring 2011. I can’t wait to see who’ll be next to wear one of his designs.

The LA based line is carried in numerous major department stores including Barneys New York.

British Celebrities Love…Miu Miu Ostrich Leather Hobo Bag

British style leaders Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller may differ in their personal style choices, but it seems the two may have similar tastes when it comes to bags.

Both actresses were spotted this week carrying the same Miu Miu Spring 2011 Ostrich leather hobo bag in different color ways.

Keira posed for cameras with her version on Monday evening outside of The Comedy Theater leaving her latest performance in “The Children’s Hour’, while Sienna carried hers during a casual night out at London’s Theatre Royal Hallymark.

The bag features an ostrich leather flap, top handle which adds a lady-like appeal and a long detachable shoulder strap for a hands-free and crossbody coolness.

I haven’t spotted the ostrich leather versions online yet, but Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International have this camel, tan and chocolate leather version.

Celebrities Love…Givenchy Antigona Bag

The Givenchy Antigona bag it the current celebrity must have.

They love this timeless Boston bag which is from the Fall 2010 collection.

Its sharp details and boxy construction represent Riccardo Tisci’s love of the masculine and feminine contrast.

With a recognizable, structured shape, this new design combines the feminine aspects of a classic Boston bag with masculine features.

The bag has metal hooks and loops plus a leather shoulder strap to allow the bag to be carried several different ways.

The Givenchy Antigona bag is available to purchase in ostrich from S|sense. both the white and black leather version.

The animal print isn’t working for me on this occasion. I think I would go for the ostrich or croc versions.

Celebrities Love…Christian Louboutin Daffodile Pumps

Celebrities love Christian Louboutin Daffodile pumps.

I love Louboutin’s as much as the next woman, but I don’t get the appeal of these particular shoes.

I guess that’s because I’m already 5ft 11ins, so I don’t need an extra 6.5 inches.

My other problem is that they are too heavy with all of the looks these celebrity has gone for.

Only Heidi Klum managed to make it her sparkly heels work with her look.

I guess it’s just not meant to be a red carpet shoe, or it’s better worn in a different colours.

‘Daffodile’ devottees Kim Kardashian and Beyonce Knowles have managed to make these heels work with what they are wearing whilst ‘off-duty.’

If you would like an extra 6.5inches you can check out these heels at Net-A-Porter US, Net-A-Porter International and

Celebrities Love…Azzaro

Celebrities have been wearing Azzaro so often on the red carpet recently that many of you have asked me if the designer has a new PR team.

They have the same PR team which is BPCM, so I think the increased visibility of Azzaro on the red carpet comes from recent collections which provide show-stopping dresses which are embellished with sparkling crystals, delicate lace inserts and dramatic bow details.

What’s not to love?

From Cannes Film Festival, to the X Factor in London, to Premiere’s in Tokyo to the Golden Globe Awards Nominee’s announcement in LA, celebrity have enjoyed wearing looks from the recent Spring 2011 and Fall 2010 collections.

Vanessa Seward, who is the creative force behind the brand, took over the label following the death of her mentor Loris Azzaro in 2004. Since then the label has gone from strength to strength.

Azzaro is available to purchase online at, Browns Fashion, Net-A-Porter International and Net-A-Porter US.
