Cate Blanchett Loves…Roksanda

Cate Blanchett Loves Roksanda

Cate Blanchett and Roksanda Ilincic: Two power girls with an impeccable sense of style—and who have actually become much of a perfect star-designer match. In fact, Cate can’t seem to get enough of the London-based designer’s bold block colours, artistic-inspired aesthetic, and signature, contemporary lines.

For the actress, who is elegance personified, Roksanda is right in keeping with her classic grace while maintaining a directional, modern spirit.

We’ve seen Queen Cate wear the versatile label for several years now, kicking off her chic streak at the ‘Blue Jasmine’ Los Angeles press conference where she showed that simple is sometimes the best answer in a richly hued bordeaux dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

Colour was also key in her effortless, vibrant coral Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2013 gown at the ‘Blue Jasmine’ Sydney premiere—a look that was set afire with her deep magenta lip.

From minimalism to a more fashion-forward edge, the actress once again impressed in a Fall 2014 frock at the Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014, which was brilliant for its confident colour-blocking, flower decal and metal belt.

Giving the dresses a rest, she sported a more mannish ensemble earlier this month at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, suiting up in a Resort 2015 blue blazer and pants.

Going from strength to strength, Cate most recently delighted in a geometric lavender and coral-pink Pre-Fall 2015 dress for the ‘Cinderella’ Sydney premiere. The charming outing was the icing on the cake of her Roksanda run that shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Loves Her…Kurt Geiger London Saffiano Tall Bowling Bag

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Loves Her Kurt Geiger London Saffiano Tall Bowling Bag

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley can’t seem to leave home without her Kurt Geiger red leather ‘Saffiano’ tall bowling bag.

This sleek carry-all classic bowling bag with an elongated silhouette works with just about any look, as demonstrated by the model, in some cases elevating the look by bringing a luxe touch.
Rosie was first spotted carrying the bag while rocking an all-black Reformation look.

The second look epitomised off-duty model style. I just love how she mixed a rock-chick Isabel Marant leather-wrap skirt and booties with a more laidback striped sweater and military green coat.

Wearing Paige Denim navy jeans, her striped sweater and bag combo had a second outing.

Which look works best for you?

Lea Michele Loves Her…Pedro Garcia ‘Sofia’ Open-Toe Booties

Lea Michele Loves Her Pedro Garcia 'Sofia' Open-Toe Booties

Lea Michele has a new love in her life, and I’m not talking about her new boyfriend – rather, her Pedro Garcia ‘Sofia’ open-toe booties.

Made from soft suede, they are perforated to give the Velcro slingback strap booties an edge.

The ‘Glee’ actress appears to reach for these shoes when donning mostly all-black looks, but she’s not averse to pairing them with denim.

Packing plenty of street-smart attitude, I can see why she doesn’t leave home without them.

Mindy Kaling Loves…Bright Colours

Mindy Kaling Loves Bright Colours

Mindy Kaling is the kind of girl we all want to be BFFs with; I do personally because of her humour, charm and quick wit, but also because she shares my love for colour.

While promoting the new season of ‘The Mindy Project’ she made quite a splash colour-wise, opting for preppy, playful pieces in standout hues.

Smart and sexy at the SXSW Film and Music Festival, who could miss her wearing this bold-hued Trina Turk top-and-trouser set, which she styled with mauve heels and a gorgeous statement necklace?

She sparkled while on her way to Jimmy Kimmel wearing a Moods of Norway emerald-green tank top paired with lemon-hued pants, adding blue sandals and Jennifer Meyer jewels for a touch more bling.

While purple might be the colour we crave when fall comes around, the light shade and polka dots give this SiriusXM look a bright and breezy feel. The actress worked the colour in several shades from head-to-toe, including a magenta lip.

Which look do you favour? I have to go with the Kimmel look.

I just love the way the green and yellow complement each other.

Diane Kruger Loves Her…Jil Sander ‘JIL’ Bag

Diane Kruger Shop Her Look3

Diane Kruger’s off-duty style has one common feature: her white Jil Sander ‘JIL’ bag.

The pure, sophisticated design is simple, yet it packs a punch as a powerful statement bag.

Featuring flat brass hardware, a shoulder strap, soft leather lining and hand-painted edges, and crafted in signature French box calf for its high quality and smooth surface, the German actress was recently spotted carrying the bag with her MiH ‘The Patch’ pocket dress as well as on three other occasions which all, coincidentally, featured denim.

Hopefully she’s not a klutz like me, who ends up getting denim dye all over her bag; that’s how I ruined my canvas Celine ‘Boston’ bag.
