Diane Kruger @ Coachella Music Festival

Many stars attended the Coachella Music Festival this weekend including Diane Kruger.

We all know that Diane has impeccable taste on the red carpet, but how does she fare in the desert?

On Saturday the German actress wore a Lacoste Spring 2012 colour-block dress to the Lacost L!ve desert pool party.

Looking as gorgeous as ever, even with wind-swept tresses, Diane had festival chic down by styling her dress with the festival staples: a crossbody bag and Isabel Marant ‘Dicker’ boots.

Pink lippie completed her look.

On Sunday, a makeup-free Diane and Joshua Jackson were pictured enjoying the festival wearing stripy looks.

Joshua was in grey-and-red, whilst his girl wore a blue-and-white striped Stella McCartney palm-print dress with the same accessories from the previous day.

An Acne cardigan and a side-swept braid completed her look.

Angelababy In Elie Saab – 31st Hong Kong Film Awards

It wasn’t such a great weekend for fashion, so thank God the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards which took place last night.

With all sorts of fashion felonies taking place, Angelababy was most definitely a sight for very sore eyes.

The model/actress dazzled on the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2012 gown.

Her gown combines my loves: sequins, electric blue and Elie Saab.

The angelic beauty with an even more angelic name added a bold red lip colour to her look which really popped against her flawless skin.

Side-swept tumbling locks completed her look.

The Olivier Awards 2012

The Olivier Awards 2012 took place in London last night at the Royal Opera House to recognise excellence in professional theatre.

We have already seen Best Actress Ruth Wilson. Here are the rest of the attendees.

Kara Tointon: The former Eastenders actress, who was in attendance to present the ‘Best New Dance Production’ award, wore an Alice + Olivia fanned sequin dress inspired by the roaring 20s with a modern silhouette. Her hair was styled into a Marcel wave to perfect the jazz-age look. Nude Christian Louboutin peep-toes and Garrard jewels completed her look.

Hayley Atwell: The British actress opted for a Jexika ‘Siren’ gown. Her strapless nude mermaid gown is beautiful, but it needed more than a silver Jimmy Choo clutch to give it more life and prevent Hayley from looking so washed out. Forevermark jewels and windswept tresses completed her look.

Susannah Fielding: What’s a red carpet event without a stunning red gown? Susannah fulfilled the quota by wearing this amazing strapless frock with a central split which was designed by Suzanne Neville. Her divine red dress was styled with silver jewels and nude accessories and was completed with a sweeping updo.

Mulberry Coachella Pool Party

Mulberry threw another party during Coachella; this time it was poolside at the Parker Palm Springs Hotel to celebrate the Fall 2012 collection despite the sunny climes.

Kate Bosworth: Never one to miss a Mulberry party, the actress was front and centre again wearing a full Mulberry Fall 2012 look. Keeping the same black high-top sneakers and ‘Lily’ shoulder bag from the previous event, Kate wore a fuzzy tight print tee with black studded shorts. Shades and a pop of colour via her pink lip colour and aqua fish-shaped earrings completed her look.

Emma Watson: The former ‘Harry Potter’ star wore a Mulberry Fall 2012 fuzzy tiger-print playsuit which I would’ve loved to have seen without the black cardigan. Emma’s accessories included beige Joie ‘Leo’ strippy flat sandals, a brown felt hat, a gold detailed black belt and of course the obligatory Mulberry bag, which was a tan ‘Lily’ shoulder bag in oak with tassels.

Lily Collins: The ‘Mirror Mirror’ actress was the only one who embraced the season and the soaring temperatures in Palm Springs, as she wore a summery look from the Mulberry Spring 2012 collection. Her ¾-length-sleeve stripy dress was teamed with a Mulberry ‘Lily’ shoulder bag in dark navy and Mulberry bow-front beige flats.

Last year’s event was a lot more colourful and season appropriate.

Ruth Wilson In McQ Alexander McQueen – The Olivier Awards 2012

Last night at the Royal Opera House in London, Ruth Wilson collected the Best Actress Award for her role in ‘Anna Christie’ at The Olivier Awards 2012, which recognises excellence in professional theatre.

My wish list for the McQ Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 collection had been a list of Hollywood stars, but it was a Brit (and rightly so) who snagged the first look.

Her layered tulle bustier dress with full skirt black floral velvet appliqués was teamed with an Alexander McQueen clutch, a black McQ cuff and black Alexander McQueen Mary Jane pumps from the Pre-Fall collection.

A side-swept hairstyle and pink lip colour completed her look.

‘My Valentine’ Premiere – Part 2

On Friday evening at the Stella McCartney boutique in LA, Paul McCartney hosted the premiere of ‘My Valentine’, which he directed, with his daughter Stella, who outfitted the guests on the night.

Here are the rest of the looks which didn’t make the best dressed list.

Kristen Stewart: On Friday evening I usually check out from the internet, but a comment that I saw on my Blackberry told me that Kristen Stewart would be on the Best Dressed list next week. So I broke my ‘no internet on Friday night’ rule to check out this amazing look. I was gob-smacked by the bedraggled mess that I was faced with. Firstly she clearly doesn’t want to be there (which is an instant turn off); secondly, her roots need a touch up; and thirdly, the look was much better on the runway with the blue blazer. Why her stylist opted for a black blazer will forever remain a mystery. I’m not a fan of those Stella McCartney loafers and the attempt to add some life to this part schoolgirl, part schoolboy look via the red lip colour fails miserably. I’m shocked at how this could be considered BDOTW worthy, especially following Coco Rocha.

Rumer Willis: One person had to pick a diamond-print dress with thick embroidery from Stella McCartney Spring 2012 and that person was Rumer. She dared to go where nearly everyone else had failed by trying to make these dresses work on the red carpet. Not only did she fail, she also added insult to injury by wearing the floor-length dress with a black shawl. For the intriguing yellow footwear she gets a 2 out of 10.

Shu Qi In Armani Privé – 31st Hong Kong Film Awards

Yesterday evening, Shu Qi attended the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards.

The annual awards are the Hong Kong equivalent to the Oscars and the British BAFTAS.

The actress looked sensational wearing an Armani Privé Spring 2012 gown.

Her lime-green strapless gown, which is fully embroidered with paillettes, kind of reminds me of a kiwi fruit.

The gown with a daring plunging neckline was teamed with gold earrings and gold bracelets.

Shu Qi’s hair, which is now a rich auburn colour, was styled into a retro updo.

This gown fits her like a glove. She is truly radiant, but those gold earrings, which for some reason remind me of discarded Ferrero Rocher wrappers, don’t work for me.

They aren’t quite in tune with the elegant nature of her look and they are odd looking to say the least.
