Celebrity get the look featuring Kelly Osbourne, Charlotte Dawson and the Duchess of Cambridge

As summer begins to draw to a close, the time comes for another look at some of the styles the celebs have been sporting this summer. This means we have a collection of looks that span from beachwear, daywear and glamorous evening looks.

First up we have beachwear. Denise Van Outen proves that she looks as amazing as ever in a fab stipy bikini from Swimwear 365, great if you are planning a late Summer break, whilst the newly married model Georgia Jones wears a beautiful kimono from the rebranded Lindsey Brown Luxe Resortwear (formally Mya Blue Luxe) as she enjoys her honeymoon with new hubby, Danny Jones from McFly.

The Duchess of Cambridge has had a busy summer, and has once again turned to her favourite shade of blue for her key outfits. You can get similar looks from the great range of dresses at Planet. Another lady who has worn some beautiful dresses recently is breakfast television presenter Charlotte Dawson. Charlotte is a big fan of the dresses from TM Lewin, designs which I think are getting better and better.

There are also looks from Kelly Osbourne, who looks just beautiful in a printed skirt from Topshop, and Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter, who is yet another celebrity fan of Zara Taylor London jewellery. How amazing is that climbing ivy arm bracelet/cuff!

Finally, there are a few ways to get Cat Deeley’s glamorous maxi dress look from high street favourite Wallis.

Enjoy!

The Emmys Good looks/bad looks

Last night was the most important night in television for Americans. It was the star studded Emmy awards. I stayed up into the early hours discussing the key looks with some of my favourite twitter ladies, Natalie from Fashion Blags  and LuAnne from Weesha’s World and really enjoyed the red carpet event, which was pretty stylish in all honesty.

The Emmys are not like the BAFTAS.  At the BAFTAS, despite the thespian luvvies who make up most of the audience, you can still rely on a reality television star to wear something totally inappropriate, or just plain wrong. And, if that doesn’t happen, you always have the ever wacky Helen Bonham Carter wearing odd shoes or something mismatched and quirky. The Emmys last night were a much more tame affair, and, if nothing really shocked, nothing truly stunned either.

But here are some of the dresses I did like on the night. Whose look did you rate?

Claire Danes in Armani

Claire went for Armani Prive and looked undeniably gorgeous. The skirt was just exquisite, and only someone with her slim, tiny frame could carry off this rather daring bodice. As for the chic bobbed hair, I hope it’s here to stay.

Sofia Vergara

Total bombshell. Sofia lives by the adage ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’, and this Vera Wang dress is just classic Sofia, from the amazing cleavage to the fishtail.

Zooey Deschanel

She is usually a kooky queen of the red carpet, but in this beautiful J Mendel dress, Zooey channeled the sophistication of  the Jackie Kennedy era. Her ‘big hair’ was also uber glam.

zooey-deschanelRose Byrne

A crop top and long skirt shouldn’t be a red carpet look. But that is (sort of) what Rose Byrne was wearing. Her Calvin Klein pink dress is just the right side of daring, and with her retro waves and minimal accessories, I think she looks sensational.

rose-byrne

Kerry Washington

The Marchesa dress worn by Kerry Washington was just beautiful, however I do have a few reservations about it, namely that it looks like the most exquisite wedding dress ever.  In white, and with the lovely floral detail, it was probably a little too bridal for the red carpet.

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne continues to impress with with her sartorial choices, and this red Jenny Packham dress was another winning look. A great colour choice, if a little clashing with the carpet, and the draping Grecian detail was great on her figure.

Guiliana Rancic

Fashion Police presenter Guiliana is a regular at these sorts of events, but I don’t ever think I’ve seen her look as good as this. She was totally sensational in Mikael D, totally upstaging a lot of the stars she was there to interview.

Christina Hendricks

Inspired by John Singer Sargent’s Madame X painting, I think the sometimes hit and miss Christina Hendricks looked the best she has ever looked. Classic black, classic hourglass, classic Christina.

Connie Britton

Something so unusual from the Nashville star, this velvet and embroidered gown from Naeem Khan was gorgeous in the detail. The unusual colour also stood out against the sea of pastel shades.

And a few I didn’t like….

Cat Deeley – Why oh why did you chose this? What is going on in the hip department???? The bottom of this skirt reminds me of a screwdriver.

cat-deeley

January Jones is too much of a siren to be wearing such a soft and pretty look. I do like the skirt of her Givenchy dress, but the bodice resembles a bandage, and the colour should be remained dirty pink.

january-jones

Heidi Klum…words fail me. If Versace designed neck braces.

Julianne Hough, put some clothes on. This looks like a swimsuit with a rather glittery beach cover-up added.

I absolutely love Lena Dunham, and ‘Girls’ is genius. So I just wish someone would help her to find a dress that actually flattered and fit her. This may be Prada, but it is pretty horrendous.

lena-dunham

And then we get to the worst of the worst, as Joan would put it, the fash hoe of the night, ladies and gentlemen I give you Zosia Mamet and her PVC tit tape dress. Words again fail me…is this some sort of statement on pornography? Is she censoring her own boobs? Was she wearing that as a Zorro mask and it slipped? Questions, questions, questions…

The SAG Awards – Pick of the dresses

And the awards bandwagon rolls on. This time it was the SAG awards, which, traditionally, is a slightly more dressed down affair than the Golden Globes and The Oscars. On this occasion though, there were some really nice dresses, although nothing that would actually make you gasp. Very bright or black and white seemed to be the order of the night, although there were some notable additions of sparkle from Helen Hunt and a sizzling Naomi Watts. Here are some of the key trends, the style winners and losers from a glamorous night.

Glamorous Sparkle

Naomi Watts was a definite contender for best dressed. Wearing a silver strapless sheath from Marchesa, Naomi was the perfect vintage style movie star. Veronica Lake waves, blood-red lips and button diamond earrings completed the look, which did remind me of Marilyn Monroe crossed with last season Amber Heard.

Also doing the shimmering goddess very well was Helen Hunt. Her Romona Keveza gown was a masterclass in dressing a slim frame, her body looked just amazing and she accessorised perfectly with more bling. After her gorgeous Philip Armstrong dress, I think Helen is having a real style moment.

The ever beautiful Jennifer Garner also went for a glittering look, this time in a gold Oscar De La Renta column dress. If it had been the Oscars I would’ve said she was dressing to match the statuette, but as it was the SAG’s, I’ll just say she looked fabulous.

Mad Men’s Peggy, Elizabeth Moss, looked undeniably chic in her black Dolce and Gabbana dress. I adored her bobbed dark hair and think this is the best she has ever looked. However, I love to see a full length dress on the Red Carpet for major awards shows, so I sort of wished this was full length.

Colour

Colour featured heavily on this red carpet. There were blue and navy shades, red, lots of pink and shades of green. Jessica Chastain was positively Jessica Rabbit on the red carpet in a scarlet Alexander McQueen dress that was one of her best looks ever. She was absolutely flawless in a dress she could’ve been poured into. Nina Dobrev channelled simple elegance in her pink Elie Saab dress which was a definite hit. Frieda Pinto also went for a hot pink shade in Roland Mouret, but I thought that the draped neckline was both fussy and frumpy, making this a rare fail for both Frieda and Roland.

Marion Cotillard was just divine in another Dior creation, this one in mid blue and white. From head to toe, she looked incredible, and once again showed Jennifer Lawrence how to wear Dior. Jennifer was also wearing the designer, and also wearing blue, this time a navy shade, but this was a terrible choice. Containing lots of strange folds/tiers and looking a little unfinished, this was the case of great colour, bad dress.

Nicole Kidman also looked great in a Vivienne Westwood navy beaded sheath.  This dress reminded me of Cher wearing something by Bob Mackie in 1973…and yes, that is a good thing. Completing my blue group was the gorgeous Amanda Seyfried, who also scored serious style points in navy Zac Posen. The dress and hair were retro glamour (and frankly – how amazing is that hair!), but the long necklace added a youthful vibe to the look.

Black and White/Good and Bad

There were black dresses, there were white dresses, and then there were black and white dresses. Some were amazing, but some were not so, and that was surprising considering who was wearing them. Top of my frocky horror stars was Julianne Moore. She was so perfect at the Golden Globes thanks to Tom Ford, but when she turned to Mr Lagerfeld, who dressed her in a monochrome, floral monstrosity that was all wrong. A bad shape, and with a deep v front cut so low it looked like she had the dress on back to front. Also making me gasp in horror was Anne Hathaway. Wearing Giambattista Valli, this was all too sheer, making it look like she was wearing cycling shorts underneath. Another real disappointment was one of my style crushes, Claire Danes. Her 1990s inspired dress from Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy looked great in some pictures, but in others it gave the impression that her arm was in a sling – so not a good look. And I wasn’t convinced with her slightly scruffy hair and dark lip colour either – far too grungy for the red carpet.

But there were some beautiful looks too. Kelly Osbourne again showed why she is so well deserving of her style icon title in a 1920s style black embellished dress by Jenny Packham. And Kerry Washington chose a Rodarte column dress that required a closer look – the fabric was just so exquisite.

Who’s look did you admire from The SAG awards?
