Red Carpet Fashion Awards

BDOTW 23 June

Nicole Kidman in Dolce & Gabbana and Kiernan Shipka in Marni were joint favourites for Best Dressed this week.

The styles couldn’t be more different. One was a stunning gown, the other a fashion forward strapless mini, both worthy of praise.

I had a hard choice selecting between the two also, but my eventual pick was the gorgeous Nicole Kidman.

When it came to the guys, your winner, by a long margin, was David ‘the always dapper’ Gandy. During London Collections he had another impressive week, donning three-piece suit after three-piece suit, each one more swoon-worthy than the last.

My choice was Raymond Lam. Formal with a laidback vibe, and uber stylish.

Kiernan Shipka In Marni - 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards

Kiernan Shipka attended the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards held at MuchMusic HQ on Sunday (June 15) in Toronto, Canada.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress, who was my best dressed last week, puts herself in contention again with this Marni Evening 2015 collection pink strapless frock.

From the pretty colour to the embellishments to the architectural peplum, as always when it comes to style she leaves others in her wake.

While the look has an edge, everything about this look is young, fresh, and age-appropriate.

Styled with gold Aldo ‘Daeng’ sandals, I love the contrasting mint-green clutch she added to this directional look.

Natasha Poly In Marni - amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala

Natasha Poly attended the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France this evening (May 22).

The model wore a gorgeous Marni emerald-green silk satin strapless gown made all the more striking with a peplum detail.

Styled with a grey python Zagliani ‘Faye’ clutch and yellow diamond necklace, she added the fierce-factor into her look with a slicked-back do and heavy kohl-rimmed eyes.

While this is on the opposite scale of the Izabel Goulart princess gown, it still gave me goosebumps.

Paz Vega In Salvatore Ferragamo & Pamella Roland - Cannes Film Festival Parties

Paz Vega continued her delightful red carpet turns as she attended two more events on Friday (May 16) during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival.

The Art of Elysium’s 6th Annual PARADIS: Kicking off her day at the Art of Elysium’s 6th Annual PARADIS at Villa St. George in Cannes, Paz looked simply stunning in a Salvatore Ferragamo blush long sleeve dress with sheer panels and blush lace-up pointed toe Ferragamo heels. A chic up-do, berry lip shade and sparkling jewels rounded off this elegant and uber feminine look.

Swarovski And Viktor & Rolf Party: Paz rounded off the day’s events by attending a party hosted by Swarovski and Viktor & Rolf. Wearing a dark navy and black Pamella Roland Fall 2014 dress with sheer panelling and sleeves, the form-fitting dress oozed sassiness. Paz’s side-sweeping hair and soft smoky eye give just the right amount of attitude while a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps, an embellished clutch and layered rings added to this polished and uber sultry look.

Undeniably beautiful, Paz wows in both of these looks. And while they’re both different styles and for completely different occasions, the Pamella Roland dress just has the edge for its styling and cut.

Lily James In Marni & Peter Pilotto - Cannes Film Festival Parties

Lily James attended a host of parties during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in the south of France.

Charles Finch Filmmakers Dinner: On Friday (May 16) the ‘Downton Abbey’ actress attended the Charles Finch Filmmakers Dinner in a royal blue mid-length Marni dress with embellished shoulders. A patent belt cinched the waist and simple sandals and a black Mulberry ‘Kensal’ clutch completed the classic and demure look.

Vanity Fair and Armani Party: The following evening Lily attended the Vanity Fair and Armani Party (May 18) in an altogether more edgy and youthful look. Opting for a form-fitting embroidered Peter Pilotto dress, Lily complemented the look with an on-trend ear cuff and chic up-do. The actress recycled her shoes and clutch from the previous evening but with such a dramatic dress, it was hardly noticeable.

Lily has chosen two pretty and elegant looks here but by far my favourite is the Peter Pilotto number. While the Marni is elegantly beautiful, the printed number is just a game changer, don’t you agree?

Robert Pattinson In Marni - 'The Rover' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Robert Pattinson attended ‘The Rover’ photocall during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 18) in Cannes, France.

The actor wore a green Marni unstructured blazer over his black polo shirt which he paired with dark denim jeans for his part Italian look with plenty of Brit boy laidback flare.

Keeping it casual he topped off his Sunday afternoon look with black sneakers.

I would’ve preferred smarter trousers, but this look suits him to a tee.

I’m hoping he brings more colour to the red carpet for this evenings premiere. I’m relying on him and Ryan Gosling to shake up menswear during this festival.
