Having a fashion moment – Margot Robbie

There are a few style icons who I think rarely put a fashion foot wrong. Alexa Chung is one, the two Kate’s, Moss and Middleton, are two others, and I would also add Jessica Alba, Harley Veira Newton and Laura Bailey to my list. And now I think there is another lady who seems to always look stylish and fabulous, although I’m guessing being a tall, leggy and totally gorgeous blonde helps. I’m talking about Margot Robbie, the Australian actress who started in Neighbours and then progressed to a starmaking turn in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’. More recently she has been wowing audiences as Jane in the latest Tarzan movie. Margot has Hollywood at her feet, and is showing serious style credentials on the red carpet, and in her own casual attire.

I love her use of the colour white, which just looks incredible on her tanned skin. Think Sharon Stone in that scene in Basic Instinct, head to toe white, looking like a golden goddess. Her heels can only be described as the kind that could make you feel scared of heights and suffer from vertigo, but she looks just as good with mannish brogues, or casual gladiator sandals. And she has unexpected touches that she adds to her wardrobe, from chinoiserie style dresses with a dash of fur on the cuffs, to long pink duster jackets in silk to cover a little black dress.

As a counterpoint to her love of white outfits is her affiliation with the little black dress, which she wears to perfection, making it a summer staple in her look. Black dresses can be a controversial choice in Summer, but Margot proves they can be gothically glamorous, especially when teamed with a very smokey eye and sexy heeled sandals.

Quirky, original, a real life surfer girl with a seriously stylish look, Margot is someone whose wardrobe I just love to watch and admire.

Oscars 2015 – My favourite looks

The most glittering night on the Awards calendar came and went with a whimper last night. The Oscars used to always be the ceremony where you were promised something wonderful and something wacky, and interesting night of true fashion and memorable looks that would stay in the fashion memory long after who had actually won had faded. But that was then.

The best way to sum up this year’s ceremony choices would be ‘safe’. There were plenty of ‘nice’ dresses, with both nominees and presenters looking elegant and pretty on the red carpet. My favourite looks included the uber glamorous Margot Robbie in a YSL dress that made her look like a modern day Charlotte Rampling, complete with vampy lips and a statement necklace. Rosamund Pike also looked spectacular in red Givenchy. She has had a bad award season in my view, and this was the dress I’d been longing for her to wear.

There was a distinct lack of colour on the red carpet, but some ladies did approach it in a series of successful looks. I loved Dakota Johnson in red YSL, it was a gorgeous dress, and I particularly loved the  silver shoulder detail. Emma Stone divided opinions in Elie Saab, with some saying the dress was too old for her, and I can see Angelina opting for this one, but the colour and beading was superb, and I love anything with a low back.

Here are a selection of the dresses that I enjoyed on the night – with a couple that I sort of liked, including Jennifer Lopez, who wore a spectacular Elie Saab gown that I would’ve loved in any colour other than the dishwater she chose, and Lady Gaga, whose dress I loved – but what’s with the washing up gloves.

Whose look did you love/hate at the 2015 Oscars?
