Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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

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.

Front Row @ Erdem

London’s It girls took to the front row of Erdem’s Spring 2014 collection to see what lace-accented floral delights the designer had in store for us this time, with one PYT sticking out like a sore thumb.

Alexa Chung: The DJ didn’t appear to get the floral or lace memo, opting for a cosy Topshop knit sweater (which I have in pink) styled with a leather mini skirt, ankle boots and a Burberry Fall 2013 clutch. While she might not have towed the line with the dress code, the look is very much in tune with her style.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite donned funky crystal-accented DSquared2 shades while wearing a pretty white frock with colourful floral appliqués from Erdem’s Resort 2014 collection which she styled with black pumps. While the footwear wouldn’t have been my first choice, they coordinate well with the black trims on her dress.

Pixie Geldof: I saw the socialite several times yesterday. While she changed her dress for each show – here she’s wearing an Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 floral frock – she did not part with her trusted Dolce & Gabbana animal-print clutch, or her burgundy booties showcased during Christopher Kane’s Fall 2013 collection.

Daisy Lowe: The model channeled her inner Courtney Love, styling her pretty white lace Erdem Resort 2014 frock with workman-like lace-up boots, with black Prada Heritage cat eye sunglasses and a Miu Miu ‘Bowling’ bag completing her look.

Felicity Jones In Erdem - Variety Studio At Holt Renfrew

Following her double black-and-white Viktor & Rolf looks from the weekend, Felicity Jones opted for a touch of colour while attending the Variety Studio event at Holt Renfrew during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday in Toronto, Canada.

The British actress wore an Erdem Resort 2014 dress.

Erdem Moralioglu has a knack for updating his florals each season, and this dress is a perfect testament to that as the florals are spars just outlining the dress, with colour-block stripes dominating this frock.

Felicity styled her pocketed dress with ruffled shoulders with a pair of grey Casadei ‘Rodio Steelix’ pumps, which are fast becoming a celebrity favourite much like the brand’s beloved ‘Blade’ pumps.

Alicia Vikander In Erdem - 'The Fifth Estate' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) is finally here, and judging by the looks which took to the red carpet for ‘The Fifth Estate’ premiere in Toronto, Canada last night, it already puts the whole of Venice Film Festival (aka Snoozefest 2013) into the shade.

Alicia Vikander was the very definition of elegance in her majestic Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 jacquard gown, with her skin glowing against its rich shades of deep-water-blue and pretty pink florals.

The decision to make this all about the dress is what makes this look work so well, with a simple centre-parted ‘do and barely there makeup completing her look.

I know what you’re thinking. You’ve seen this before.

Well, Marion Cotillard wore the short-sleeved version of this dress and Keira Knightley wore the same Erdem strapless dress in a different colour with lace embroidery.

Following her guest appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Monday, Chloe Moretz headed over to the ‘Conan’ show to continue to promote her new movie ‘Kick-Ass 2′ on Tuesday.

Chloe wore an Erdem pale-blue-and-black beaded wool-crepe top with a black leather skirt with the same beaded details from the Resort 2014 collection while she showed off some of her self-defence training skills.

She whipped around a Balisong butterfly knife, quite impressively, yet Conan O’Brien was left looking a little uneasy.
