Celebrity get the look featuring Kate Middleton, Jennifer Lawrence and Freida Pinto

After the excitement and high glamour of the Golden Globe awards, it’s time to look at some more celebrity looks that can be achieved by shopping the High Street. Some of the looks featured are my interpretations of great style, from Hollywood stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Freida Pinto. Other looks are actually the real thing, to be found in store and online right now.

First up is the Duchess of Cambridge. That painting that was unveiled last week sure is awful, but Kate’s French Connection blouse is anything but. Unfortunately, the sale item has almost sold out in every colour. However, there are a few left in white, which I think is a very versatile option that could look amazing with cigarette pants.

LK Bennett have relaunched those perfect nude heels, the Sledge, an absolute confirmed favourite of the Duchess, and the perfect neutral shoe. I so need a pair of these in my life!

Next up is that lovely X Factor star Ella Henderson, who tweeted a very sweet picture of herself wearing a great dress from In Love with Fashion. Ella is wearing the black version, but this dress also comes in this season’s hot OxBlood Shade.

Another longstanding Love fan is Una Healy. The Saturdays singer is currently enjoying the sun in the US and so can get away with this playsuit, but I think this would look fab with some chunky opaque tights and a studded shoe boot. Alternately, you can just wait for some warm weather to hit the UK. (Sigh).

Freida Pinto always makes interesting choices, and I think she looked just fabulous in this flouncy monochrome mini dress. Dorothy Perkins have this design which I think is a great alternative to Freida’s look.

At a Pre Golden Globes party, Jennifer Lawrence showed why she has been named on of the most beautiful women in the world recently. Wearing a cornflower blue dress that I believe is a Victoria Beckham design, Jennifer just sizzled. You can get a similar look from Very in a lovely dress from the Mylene Klass collection.

And finally, also at the same event, the very lovely Amy Adams showed that she is no slouch in the style department in a sophisticated green shift style dress from Herve Le Laroux. You can get a similar style in the current Reiss sale, a total bargain for £113.

Cannes – Daytime Classics

The Cannes film festival is always a super glamorous event, and that means for daytime photocalls as well as evening Red Carpet events. This is not an occasion for jeans and t-shirts, the celebrities are never less than dressed up at Cannes. And this gives fashion watchers the perfect opportunity to check out some fabulous looks for daytime. From lace to florals, to Freida Pinto in the cutest two piece, there have been some highly covetable looks that could translate to glamorous daytime occasions like the races, the tennis and weddings.

These are my favourite daytime looks so far from Cannes.

Kirsten Dunst shows that white can be the perfect shade for both porcelain blondes and summer days. This white lace dress from Dolce and Gabbana suits Kirsten’s ethereal image and I love the midi length. I am less enamoured with the outfit sported by Glamour’s best dressed woman (honestly..who votes for these things…) Kirsten Stewart, whose Balenciaga trousers make her look like she has been severely attacked by Algae…

I’m really not sure what Kelly Brook is doing at Cannes (keeping my fingers crossed it has nothing to do with acting…), but Kelly has that old school glamour that harks back to the era of Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobrigida. Kelly looked immaculate in this white dress which hugged every curve and could only be teamed with vampish red lips.

Mia Wasikowska often fails to catch my interest – I usually find her pale and uninteresting. But I absolutely loved the candy coloured printed summer dress from Prada that she wore for the Lawless photocall.

Jessica Chastain looked wonderful in a bright floral shift dress that showed she should definitely wear more bright colours as they really suit her colouring. This pretty shift by Dolce and Gabbana requires no accessorising – it is simply the perfect summer dress.

 Freida Pinto looked frankly amazing in a Salvatore Ferragamo crop style top and full fifties skirt in what can only be described as Riviera stripes. This was such a fresh and pretty look, and was perfect for the beautiful seaview that she cleverly posed in front of.
