V&A ‘Christian Dior: Designer Of Dreams’ Opening Dinner Gala

 Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features V&A 'Christian Dior: Designer Of Dreams' Opening Dinner Gala

Celebrities turned up for the opening gala dinner for the V&A ‘Christian Dior: Designer Of Dreams’ exhibition on Tuesday (January 29) in London, England.

Gemma Arterton: The English actress celebrated simplicity in a Dior Fall 2019 black and pink tulle dress. Some might have difficulty with the colour of the skirt, but I’m captivated by the clean lines and tailoring.

Eddie Redmayne: The British actor mixed casual and formal elements in a Dior Men by Kim Jones navy mohair wool peak lapel, double-breasted suit with bright white trainers. The ensemble marked a new silhouette for him. He usually gravitates towards slim-fit suits.

Felicity Jones: Eddie’s former costar stuck with her signature black in a Dior Fall 2019 gown with Delfina Delettrez jewels. The mix of hard and soft elements plus the sparkle gave it an arresting finish.

Gemma Arterton In Emilia Wickstead – 2018 British Independent Film Awards

Gemma Arterton In Emilia Wickstead - 2018 British Independent Film Awards

Emilia Wickstead is used to dressing royalty, so to say Gemma Arterton looked regal at the 2018 British Independent Film Awards in London on Sunday (December 2) wouldn’t be a stretch.

The British actress looked supremely elegant in this Spring 2019 cloque gown.

I love how this piece pairs clean, minimalist lines with a pretty pink hue that becomes alluring when you see the open-back.

Jessica McCormack earrings and a sweeping updo completed her look.

Gemma Arterton In Delpozo – BAFTA Breakthrough Brits Reception

Gemma Arterton In Delpozo - BAFTA Breakthrough Brits Reception

Pretty in pink is an overused phrase, but it very much applied to Gemma Arterton in Delpozo’s Spring 2019 dress, worn to the BAFTA Breakthrough Brits reception this evening (November 7) in London.

The British actress looked ethereal and feminine with the halter-cold-shoulder construction showcasing Josep Font’s commitment creativity, even when he’s aiming for simplicity.

For added romance and billowing movement, the nipped-in waist and modest length of the skirt kept the look effortlessly flattering.

Some may not agree, but I don’t think that her black Jimmy Choo ‘Laurie’ sandals upset the romantic mood.

2018 Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

2018 Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards 4 copy

Here is a roundup from the 2018 Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel on Tuesday (October 30) in London.

Ellie Bamber: Was this a case of third time’s the charm, when this Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 look has already been successfully mastered by Keira Knightley and Tilda Swinton, or three strikes and your out?

Adwoa Aboah: Pop art was a way to rebel against the art establishment, just as Mary Katrantzou’s prints rebel against mundane colour combinations. You may not love the shape of this Spring 2019 dress, but you have to admire the artistry, and the additional green clutch and blue Louboutins Adwoa brought to this look.

‘Vita & Virginia’ Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

'Vita & Virginia'  Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

Elizabeth Debicki and Gemma Arterton were joined by director Chanya Button for the ‘Vita & Virginia’ premiere during the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday (September) in Canada.

Elizabeth Debicki: The Australian actress graced the red carpet wearing Schiaparelli Fall 2018 Haute Couture white embroidered dress with a cheetah motif of velvet and golden beads which prevented her from looking washed out. I adore the lilac eye makeup with this look, and the fact that she opted out of the gloved sleeves. She is was picture perfect as always. Did you prefer this look over her Armani Prive?

Gemma Arterton: The peek-a-boo design of Christopher Kane meant the mood for Gemma’s look felt very sensual, yet oh-so chic. I love how the Le Silla adds yet more dynamism and complements the buckle details on her dress.

Chanya Button: A strong nautical theme was felt from this Amanda Wakeley shimmering blue and gold dress, yet it didn’t feel costumey.

Gemma Arterton In Emilia Wickstead – Chris Evans Breakfast Show

Gemma Arterton made a guest appearance on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show at the BBC Studios in London on Friday (July 20), to promote her latest film, ‘The Escape’.

This blue Emilia Wickstead mini dress was probably made for a stroll along Pampelonne beach in Saint Tropez, but this light-weight, airy piece was not wasted on one of the hottest days of the year so far in the capital.

I love the retro vibe and how the belt nips in the waist and creating a fit-and-flare silhouette, but it’s the elegance styling which really makes the look.

Some might not love the length, but look at those legs. They deserve a spotlight all to themselves.
