Emma Watson In Valentino Couture – 2011 BAFTA Awards

Smile, You’re Wearing Couture Award
Emma Watson graced the red carpet on her home turf at the 2011 BAFTA Awards in London tonight.

She looked beautiful wearing a Valentino Spring 2011 Couture gown. The first to wear a look from this recently presented collection.

Whilst her one shoulder ruffle and pleated floral print gown is stunning, I wish she looked like she was happy to be on the red carpet. Her energy was very low.

Gold statement earrings and gold heels completed her look.

Amy Adams In Valentino – Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon

Amy Adams wore white again at the 83rd Academy Awards nominations luncheon at Beverly Hilton Hotel in California this afternoon, after wearing white to the SAG Awards.

Like all the others at this luncheon her Valentino white dress with a ruffled bib from the Spring 2011 collection was event appropriate.

Her elegant, casual chic look has shorter sleeves than the runway version to further enhance the spring time mood of this look.

She style her dress with gold pumps and a white bracelet.

The jury is out on the white bracelet, but I love everything else about this look including her glossy red sleek straight hair.

White is clearly the colour of the day as the whole page is full of white dresses.

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Obsession – Valentino Nuage Lace Tote

Jennifer Love Hewitt has been seen out and about with a beautiful new bag by her side – the Valentino Nuage lace tote.

It’s very much an all rounder because she can be seen carrying the tote when she’s dressed up or casually when she’s running errands.

Jennifer is another star who is improving her style choices. I particularly love the black blazer look above.

The Valentino straw tote has a glossy bow and delicate lace overlay. The patent leather is a modern contrast to romantic floral lace detail.

This gorgeous bag is available to purchase from Saks.com.

Kate Hudson In Valentino – The Graham Norton Show

Kate Hudson appeared on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ this weekend to promote her new romantic comedy, “A Little Bit Of Heaven.”

On the show she was forced to address engagement rumours which she laughed saying, “No, no, not that I know of! I don’t like putting that sort of pressure on it and I don’t feel it necessary to get married.”

“I am 31; I already have one child, and have had one divorce, so it is not necessarily the golden ticket. I just want to be happy.”

She looked beautiful wearing a Valentino Spring 2011 tulle top with a rose detail and a black leather pencil skirt.

The picture isn’t quite doing the look justice, so take a look at the video.

Valentino Spring 2011 Couture

I attended the very intimate presentation of the Valentino Spring 2011 Couture collection at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild in Paris yesterday. It was the perfect romantic setting.

Valentino never disappoints because elegance, femininity and beauty is in its DNA.

Beautiful delicate butterflies and floral appliqués adorned this collection of mostly floor-length dresses.

Every piece moved with a wave-like fluidity which was both sophiscated and sensual giving us a beautifully haunted atmosphere.

With the music softly playing the background, you could actually hear the tiered ruffles flutter delicately as the models walked the gold runway.

The colour palette was neutral with tones of stone, pale pink, beige, lilac plus aqua and classic Valentino red and aqua.

Front Row: Shala Monroque, Dasha Zukova, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Caroline Sieber and Delfina Fendi

Favourites: Black sheer dress with white floral appliqués and light pink tiered ruffled dress with sequin embellishments.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Elle Fanning, Eva Mendes, Camilla Belle, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jessica Alba, Keira Knightley, Kirsten Dunst, Leighton Meester, Cate Blanchett and Sarah Jessica Parker

Who Wore Valentino Better? Im Soo Jung or Rosamund Pike

In the space of a week this Valentino Resort 2011 lace leather dress has been worn twice.

Im Soo Jung wore her dress to the press conference for her new movie “Come Rain Come Shine” in Seoul, South Korea last week.

She kept the look very simple by adding tights and patent ankle boots.

Rosamund Pike wore her dress sans tights to the “The Birds Eye View Film Festival 2011” which she hosted in London.

Although Rosamund’s gold cuff isn’t doing anything for me, I much prefer her overall look.

Mostly because she didn’t wear tights, but also because she has a lot more confidence and attitude.

Im Soo Jung In Valentino – “Come Rain Come Shine” Press Conference

Im Soo Jung looked very chic at the press conference for her new movie “Come Rain Come Shine” in Seoul, South Korea last week.

She wore a Valentino Resort 2011 dress which has an interesting combination of a lace bodice and leather skirt with a black bow at the waist.

Im Soo Jung kept her make-up very simple and wore her hair back.

To complete her look she wore thick black tights and black patent lace up booties.

I really like the dress, especially the A-line skirt.

The tights aren’t so bad for a press conference, but I wish Im Soo Jung had breathed a bit more life into her look.
