Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen & Bella Heathcote for Miu Miu Spring 2014

Miu Miu Spring 2014 ad campaign (2)

Miu Miu’s Spring 2014 campaign features a few of our favourite Hollywood starlets.

Lupita Nyong’o, who has been wearing a lot of Prada/Miu Miu lately; Elle Fanning, who wears the same dress we recently saw on Miu Miu’s Resort 2014 campaign girl; Lea Seydoux; Elizabeth Olsen, who sports super-long locks for the campaign; and Bella Heathcote, who is totally unrecognisable.

Apart from the mix of young talent, I love this campaign’s vintage-inspired styling. I have my eye on those Courrèges coats, cute thigh-high pop socks, and Olsen’s tan suede lace-up boots.

Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot the campaign back in November, just as the buzz around Lupita was bubbling.

“The actresses’ poses, full of personality, convey their diverse points of view, effortlessly translating the new spirit of the Miu Miu woman”, said Miuccia Prada.

Chloé Los Angeles Fashion Show and Dinner

A star-studded crowd gathered for the Chloé fashion show and dinner, which was held in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening. The event was co-hosted by Chloé’s head designer, Clare Waight Keller, American Vogue editor Lisa Love, and actress January Jones.

Bella Heathcote: The star wore a white ruffle-neck, A-line dress from the Chloé Spring 2013 collection; then, paired it with Aldo x Preen ‘Fanni’ black leather ankle boots. Her dark crimson lip added a hint of seasonal drama to the look.

Maria Sharapova: The tennis player chose a mint-hued Chloé Fall 2013 wool-drill dress, which cut just above the knee and featured both a higher collar and pronounced shoulder pads. To finish, she accessorized with gold hoop earrings, rings by W. Britt Joan Hornig, a gold-jeweled box clutch, and patent nude pointy-toe pumps.

Rachel Bilson: The ‘Hart of Dixie’ actress dressed in all Chloé pieces, opting to style a crisp white embroidered cotton shirt with one of the long pin-striped skirts from the label’s Resort 2014 collection. Her Chloé black-and-metallic shoulder bag with a gold-chain strap, along with her long straight locks, completed the ensemble.

Bella Heathcote In Elie Saab Couture – Zurich Film Festival 2013 Awards

Bella Heathcote In Elie Saab - Zurich Film Festival 2013 Awards

Having been M.I.A. on the red carpet since June, Bella Heathcote made a welcome return to the red carpet for the Zurich Film Festival 2013 awards night in Switzerland on Saturday evening.

The Australian beauty wore an Elie Saab Couture black cocktail dress which didn’t fade into the dark backdrop thanks to the floral embroidery and shimmering embellishments.

Black Stuart Weitzman sandals accessorized the look alongside a pearl Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch to break up all the black, with an additional touch of bedazzlement thanks to her House of Lavande earrings.

A neat bun and a pink lip colour completed her look.

Bella Heathcote In Mary Katrantzou – ‘Helmut Newton: White Women – Sleepless Nights – Big Nudes’ Opening

Bella Heathcote In Mary Katrantzou - 'Helmut Newton White Women – Sleepless Nights – Big Nudes' Opening

Bella Heathcote made a welcome return to the red carpet for the opening of ‘Helmut Newton: White Women – Sleepless Nights – Big Nudes’ held at the Annenberg Space For Photography in Century City, California yesterday evening.

The Australian actress wore a Mary Katrantzou Fall 2013 black-and-white ‘Sandeep’ printed dress featuring a pointy collar.

Inspired by the photography of Edward Steichen and Alfred Stieglitz, this printed blouse dress is a beautiful way to wear monochrome.

The shadowy-print frock was accessorized with black peep-toe Jimmy Choo ‘Raven’ sandals and a black-and-gold Kelly Wearstler ‘Fractured’ clutch with a foot clasp, with gold spiked earrings and a red lip colour providing the finishing touches.

Bella Heathcote In Chanel – 2013 Met Gala


Bella Heathcote lived up to her name, as she cut a pretty profile when she walked the red carpet at the Met Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Like ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, the young starlet wore a frock from Chanel’s Spring 2013 Couture runway.

Devoid of spikes and studs, this black-and-white lace dress is not the most punk-rock moment we’ve seen tonight. But the razor-sharp cut of the shoulders added a certain amount of edge.

The Australian actress accessorized with a Chanel black clutch and sparkle from Chanel Fine Jewelry, along with Jimmy Choo ‘Kendall’ sandals. However, I wish she had exchanged her standard, metallic peep-toes for another more adventurous pair—even the lace bootie seen on the runway would have added some funkiness here.

She left the teased and tortured hair for others to flaunt, finishing her prim moment with a polished, side-parted low updo and a light pink lippie.

What do you think? Did Bella deliver too much prettiness or just the right amount of punk?
