Diane Kruger In Prada – ‘Everest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Diane Kruger In Prada - ‘Everest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening

Diane Kruger attended the ‘Everest’ premiere which was part of the opening ceremony of the 2015 Venice Film Festival on Wednesday (September 2).

I have tried – with every fibre of my being – to love this gown, but I can’t.

Not just because it’s a Prada gown, because her last Prada gown was outstanding. It’s the train. The train feels so matronly and stagnate.

Plus the gown feels like it was designed for a woman much older than Diane.

Styled with a Lee Savage clutch and Kwiat jewels, this is nice enough, but will not have pride of place on my best dressed list.

Miley Cyrus In Prada – 2015 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Miley Cyrus In Prada – 2015 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Here are some more looks from Miley Cyrus who hosted the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (August 30) in Los Angeles, California.

You, like I, were pretty shocked that Versace were involved in three of her costumes, well that shock might deepen when you learn that Prada were also involved.

While the two piece sequins and silver mirror embroidered Prada look styled with a head-piece and platform sandals was one of the tamer outfits, the grey nylon Prada coat and hat enriched with silver sequins and feathers wouldn’t have been so bad had we not been subjected to her bikini line – again.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Priyanka Chopra In Cushnie et Ochs & Halston Sage In Prabal Gurung

BDOTW 10 aug

Usually if a gown is placed in the BDOTW poll, it is likely to win, but this week Priyanka Chopra won wearing a sexy Cushnie et Ochs teal fitted dress.

My pick was Halston Sage in Prabal Gurung. The look left me in awe as it was so sleek and modern.

When it came to the men, you couldn’t separate the handsome Chace Crawford in maroon and Jason Segal in teal Prada.

I, on the other hand, picked Miles Teller who looked very dapper in his Louis Vuitton double-breast suit.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 6 august

It’s time to celebrate the fine gentlemen who’ve been hitting the red carpet this week.

Jason Segel: The actor, who was my best dressed last week, attended the screening of ‘The End of the Tour’ on Sunday (August 2) in East Hampton, New York. While I love the teal hue of his Prada suit, I don’t like the striped tie and I think the trousers are perhaps an inch too long.

Miles Teller: The actor joined co-star Kate Mara on the red carpet for the ‘Fantastic Four’ New York premiere on Tuesday (August 4). I do love a double-breasted suit; unfortunately they don’t necessarily work for everyone. Miles totally nailed his look rocking Louis Vuitton with Christian Louboutin shoes with both style and panache.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

July menswear

Here’s a quick roundup of some of the fine gentlemen who hit the red carpet this week.

Jason Segal: I was in awe of how dapper Jason looked in his Etro navy suit while making a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (July 29).

Chris Hemsworth: The Australian actor joined his lovely wife Elsa Pataky on the red carpet on Monday (July 27) for the LA premiere of ‘Vacation’. Also going the navy suit and plum shoe route, the actor wore Prada, taking the formality out of the look by going sans tie. Such a shame about the ill-fitting trousers.

Jeremy Renner: The actor attended the New York premiere of ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’ on Monday (July 27) with Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson. While this black Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit is quite a common look for Jeremy, I can’t help but marvel at the fine Italian craftsmanship.
