2015 Oscars Couples

2015 Oscars plus ones

This post is dedicated to those gorgeous plus-ones on Oscar night, who should never be left in the shade.

Sophie Hunter: The pregnant wife of Benedict Cumberbatch looked breathtaking in her custom Lanvin red one-shoulder gown with brass beading. The vivid colour was only heighted when she stood alongside Benedict in his stark white tuxedo blazer. While oozing femininity, her gold Lanvin accessories and drop earrings helped made this quite a strong, powerful look. She’s slowly becoming my favourite plus-one. Sorry, Camila Alves.

Hannah Bagshawe: The British couple both wore navy Alexander McQueen. Eddie Redmayne wore a Bespoke navy tuxedo with black velvet slippers to collect his Best actor awards, while she wore a navy chiffon embroidered gown with embellished feather belt styled with a gold McQueen ‘Clutch Me’ clutch.

Meryl Streep In Lanvin – 2015 Oscars

Meryl Streep In Lanvin - 2015 Oscars

Meryl Streep graced the red carpet on Sunday (February 22) at the 2015 Oscars, hosted at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

Dressed in custom Lanvin, Meryl was the epitome of chic and timeless in a tuxedo jacket, white blouse, and column skirt cinched at the waist with an art deco-inspired belt. I love that Meryl sticks to her own style at award ceremonies, and this year’s Oscars were no different.

Meryl accessorized with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, Jimmy Choo ‘Kuki’ shoes, and chandelier earrings.

This is a simple and to the point style for Hollywood’s biggest night. Do you love it, too?

Alfre Woodard’s Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree

Alfre Woodard's Oscar's Sistahs Soiree
Many stars attended Alfre Woodard’s Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree by White Diamond Lustre, Elizabeth Taylor at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Wednesday (February 18) in Beverly Hills, California, where they showed off a range of different dress codes at the event—from casual to cocktail snazzy.

Kerry Washington
: The ‘Scandal’ actress brought a touch of spring to the soiree in her Sophia Kah look featuring a floral skirt with contrast paneling. I love the mix of the watercolour-inspired print with the bolder edge of the midnight-blue top and burnt-orange colour-blocked hem. Elegant waves and an oxblood lip balanced the look.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw
: The star’s bright smile brought vibrancy to this riff on the LBD. The Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2015 dress with embroidered neckline and sheer chiffon detailing was effortlessly chic, with Kwiat jewels elevating the look with a subtle sparkle.

Zoe Saldana: Looking radiant in ruffles, Zoe worked this deep blue Lanvin dress to her advantage. The black belting added the bit of figure-defining structure that the design required, with a spirited punch courtesy of the contrast dotted Kurt Geiger ‘Bond’ pumps and her beautiful red lip.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 12 feb

We’ve seen their leading ladies, now let’s look at the gents taking to the red carpet last night (February 11).

Will Smith: The actor joined Margot Robbie on the red carpet for the screening of ‘Focus’ in London. From his semi-casual look it was clear that this was a laidback screening, but at least his look had more style and flair.

Jamie Dornan: The actor took to the red carpet with co-star Datoka Johnson and wife Amelia Warner (in Temperley London) for the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ premiere during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival. Still looking somewhat bewildered by the whole thing, the actor scrubbed up nicely in his black Neil Barrett tux, co-ordinating his blue tie and pocket square with his wife’s accessories.

Zachary Quinto: The actor joined a host of lovely ladies at the 2015 amfAR New York Gala wearing head-to-toe Lanvin. This is one of Zachary’s more traditional red carpet offerings with no twists or quirks to be had.

Natalie Portman In Christian Dior & Lanvin – ‘Knight of Cups’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Natalie Portman In Christian Dior & Lanvin - 'Knight of Cups' Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

On Sunday night (February 8), Natalie Portman promoted her movie, Knight of Cups, during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany.

Photocall: For the photocall, the Dior ambassador wore a very chic black Dior wool coat dress, impeccably tailored with button details and flap pockets making up part of the design. Even though a tuxedo-inspired dress is nothing new for Dior, they never look or feel exactly the same. Take Felicity Jones’ for example.

Premiere: Later on in the evening, she pulled out all the stops by wearing a custom black, strapless Lanvin gown with velvet bustier and taffetas ruffle skirt accented with a black satin belt. This left me breathless as I got caught up in the supreme elegance of the look. It’s been a very long time since I was this moved by a Natalie Portman look. A Lanvin black satin, long ‘Evening’ minaudière with white floral detailing and Sidney Garber jewels rounded out her look.

Are you as enamoured by the second look as I am?

2015 Grammy Awards Men Red Carpet Roundup

Grammys mens

A handful of gents made waves at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, where their looks carried some eclectic personality, yet still fell in a rather safe camp for such a night.

Kanye West: Striking a tough, hands-in-pockets pose, the rapper and nominee accentuated the aloof attitude in a Balmain Homme suit, worn shirtless with a slight slouch to the pants. It all made sense until I saw the weathered pair of black cowboy boots, which was the unexpected, rebel twist. Yay or nay to the boots?

Jay Z: The music mogul was dressed to impress in a Burberry modern-fit English-woven wool and mohair tuxedo in an inky blue hue with a black silk contrast shawl collar. He couldn’t have looked sharper if he tried.

Common
: Taking a monochromatic, all-black approach, the rapper and multiple nominee wore a well-tailored Givenchy suit that he pulled off handsomely enough to not appear too one-note.
