LFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List

LFW 1

Here is my red carpet wish list from the Spring 2014 shows presented during London Fashion Week.

Antonio Berardi: Of all the designers, Antonio’s was the hardest to select just one from, as there are so many looks I am dying to see on the red carpet. In the end I selected Look 4 for Rose Byrne. The actress, who loves blush tones, would look remarkable in this look. It’s soft and pretty, with delicate embellishments, yet the mullet hem gives the look an edgier twist than we are used to seeing from the Aussie star.

Barbara Casasola: The Brazilian-born designer has been steadily growing her celebrity fan base with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Sonam Kapoor as fans, so I hope to see more of her pieces on the red carpet. Marion Cotillard would look amazing wearing this dual-colour black-and-lilac streamline frock. It would be perfect for a New York or London screening.

An Evening To Celebrate The Global Fund

An Evening To Celebrate The Global Fund

Many other fashionistas joined the Beckhams at Apsley House in London yesterday evening for the celebration of the Global Fund’s first Green Carpet Challenge.

Jemma Kidd: The makeup artist/fashion model wore an Antonio Berardi Resort 2014 blue-black-and-white geometric-print dress styled with Roger Vivier pumps and a black clutch. For me there is a huge disconnect between the dress and the shoes. A sexy pair of Manolos or edgy footwear by Casadei or Kirkwood would’ve been more complementary.

Sienna Miller: After taking her front-row seat as brand ambassador at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 show, the actress wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring the brand’s hallmarks: floral and lace. Having seen this dress in various guises on the red carpet before, it’s a little hard to get that excited about it, especially when she styled it with flats.

Jodi Kidd: Joining her sister at the event, the former race car driver who has recently returned to modelling wore an Preen navy-and-neon-yellow floral dress styled with sexy lace Jimmy Choos, bracelets and a black clutch. Thankfully, her shoe game is better than her sister’s. You may remember that fellow model Helena Christensen wore the same dress earlier this year.

Olivia Wilde In Antonio Berardi – IMDb Event

Olivia Wilde In Antonio Berardi - IMDb event

Olivia Wilde is having a moment that I wish would never end.

When taking to the red carpet at an IMDb event, where she collected the first-ever ‘STARmeter Award’ during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada, she wore her second look of the night and sixth of the festival so far.

I applaud her and her tireless champion of a stylist, who have continued to keep us entertained (and in awe) of her wide-ranging looks.

I’m loving the current print appreciation. We’ve had Gucci, Mary Katrantzou and now Antonio Berardi, with Olivia donning a geometric-print look from the designer’s Resort 2014 collection which has a waist-nipping optical-illusion quality.

After dazzling with a bold pink lip earlier in the night, she kept the makeup neutral working a lighter hue on this occasion, with the rest of her styling including simple black strappy Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and a selection of gold bangles.

Lupita Nyong’o In Antonio Berardi – Fox Searchlight TIFF Party

Lupita Nyong’o In Antonio Berardi - Fox Searchlight TIFF Party

Lupita Nyong’o is making quite a splash during Toronto Film Festival.

Her third look was presented on Saturday when she attended the Fox Searchlight TIFF party held at Spice Route in Toronto, Canada.

The actress delights wearing a brightly coloured Antonio Berardi Pre-Fall 2013 crepe sheath dress with a folded back detail for added flair.

I wasn’t a fan of the pumps with her Honor look but her choice delights on this occasion, with animal-print ponyskin Christian Louboutin ‘Filo’ pumps adding an unexpected twist.

Gold hooped earrings and a gold clutch completed her look.

Needless to say, I have a huge crush on this girl.

Nicole Richie In Antonio Berardi – 2013 Style Awards

Nicole Richie In Antonio Berardi - 2013 Style Awards

Ahead of her hosting duties, Nicole Richie took to the red carpet for the 10th annual Style Awards held at the Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

The designer wore an ensemble from one of her favourite designers: Antonio Berardi.

Her all-black Pre-Fall 2013 velvet crop top and trouser ensemble with crystal embellishment detailing perfectly showcased her sartorial style and the Berardi’s ability to create more than just the lust-worthy tailored dresses that actresses tend to favour.

The look was already giving off an edgy vibe with the embellished details, yet Nicole took it a step further with her Jennifer Meyer studded earrings.
Vivienne Westwood Anglomania black satin ‘Isabel’ three-strap heels completed her look.

Sandra Bullock In Antonio Berardi – 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Sandra Bullock In Antonio Berardi -  2013 Teen Choice Awards

Sandra Bullock was the other non-teen to attended the 2013 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday, where she picked up the Choice Summer Movie Star: Female award for ‘The Heat’.

The actress – who’s had a great promo tour of the movie, where she hardly wore her favoured colour black – opted for an Antonio Berardi Resort 2014 frock on this occasion featuring a crystal beaded jungle weave with cotton macrame black inserts and flounced hem.

Signature sexy strappy black sandals courtesy of Casadei accessorized her look, with barely there makeup and blown-out tresses in a centre part providing the finishing touches to her surfboard-award-accepting look.

Nicole Richie In Antonio Berardi – Out In New York City

Nicole Richie In Antonio Berardi - Out In New York City

Nicole Richie was spotted out in New York City following her guest host appearance on ‘Live with Kelly and Michael’ yesterday morning.

The petite designer showed off plenty of leg wearing an Antonio Berardi Pre-Fall 2013 long-sleeved mini dress.

While the dress didn’t appear in the designer’s look book, it’s distinctive by the abstract print and coral base, which perfectly complements her olive skin tone.

Not surprised to see the white pumps trend continue here, especially when they work so perfectly with her sexy frock (said begrudgingly).
