With the Golden Globes not too long ago, I wasn’t all that impressed with the red carpet dresses, however a few did stand out from the rest!
My Favourite for the evening was Anne Hathaway in Chanel. Simple, elegant and very classy.
Some of the Other Best Dressed for the evening in my opinion were Emily Blunt in Michael Kors, Lucy Lu in Carolina Herrera and Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy
Worst of the night? Halle Berry in Versace was an absolute tacky disaster! What she was thinking I do not know!
I felt a bit of Deja Vu with Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad, which I found very distasteful by the way. Reminded me of Beyonce’s 2012 Met Gala Dress where she wore a similar Givency number. See it for yourself!
Traditional eastern dress designed by my aunt. The material is a soft and silky mix between chiffon and velvet which moves really nicely. This flowy and loose type of dress is very much in all around but also makes for great formalish maternity wear.
Make up & Hair. Kept is slightly vintage with pinned up loose side bun, stretched liner and red lips.
There is only one word to describe the designs of Elie Saab – MAGICAL! Every girl’s dress fantasy come to life, and my favourite dress maker of all time. This Lebanese designer manages to WOW every single show. Check out the latest show below featuring Karlie Kloss.
Beige, Camel and Tan are my favourite colours to wear as I feel like I can wear it any way and with anything. Because my skin tone is fairly tannish as well, I find ghat those colours are quite complimentary.
Top, trousers, and heels are all Zara and the watch is Michael Kors.
It might just be me but the moment I buy something, I tend to start thinking about EXACTLY when and how I’m going to wear or use it: some may call it OCD. Sometimes however, things just happen…
…I.e. these shoes! I had no intention of buying any shoes, but when your feet are aching from wearing ice pick heels for 5 hours and you’ve left your flats at home not to mention you’ve still got a few hours left at work plus a commute home on public transport left, then you run to the nearest shop, in this case it was Topshop, and buy yourself some flats. Topshop isn’t exactly the cheapest place for rescue me shoes so if I’m going to dish out, its not going to be on basic stuff when I can get that for a fraction at primark!
A coincidental little treat to those flats, is that they match my purse/wallet which I bought a little while ago before the above happened. This is from Zara, as of course a big chunk of my wardrobe is, and caught my eye when I was returning something, turning out to be an exchange.
Now, as much as I’d love to own a Chanel suit, lets face it, it’s not happening for the majority of us-so why not go for a much much much x 10 cheaper lookalike? The closest I can get to a Chanel product at this moment in time is the fragrance (and the earrings I bought for my mum) which is another recent purchase. When I do eventually get my Classic Flap Chanel 2.55 In Caviar, rest assured the world will know.
Rachel Zoe is the American stylist and the fashion brain behind some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Her clientele include the likes of Eva Mendes, Anne Hathaway, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Garner and Kate Beckinsale, to name Just A Few!
Besides being super-stylist to the superstars, I find her own style quite intriguing! She, along with Nicole Richie, are said to be the “pioneers” of the Boho Chic look, consisting of chunky jewellery, baggy/loose shirts and dresses on a tiny frame.
Background: Born in New York City, Rachel studied Sociology and Psychology at George Washington State University and worked at Gotham and YM Magazine before she became a stylist. She’s married to Rodger Berman for 16 years and has one son, Skyler. Rachel now osts her own reality show on Bravo called the Rachel Zoe Project.
I must say, She is probably the reason I myself am in possession of chunky stone rings and oversized flows chiffon tops
