2012 Met Gala – Round Up Part V

Going through last night’s pictures one more time this morning, might have changed my perspective on some of the gowns that caught my eye at first glance, whilst other dresses grew on me slowly but surely.

2012-Met-Gala---05

Carey Mulligan paid an homage to Prada, by wearing her design during the big night that set Carey co-chair for the 2012 Met Gala, alongside designer Miuccia Prada and US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The gold and silver toned fish-scale halterneck dress embellished with paillettes was paired with Prada satin pumps. A chic up do, smokey eyes and nude lips styled Carey”s dazzling appearance.

Nina Dobrev secured herself a well deserved spot on the best dressed of the night list, when she decided to step out in this sumptuous Donna Karan Atelier one shoulder silver and black custom gown, that featured a long dreamy train and a chic open back with draping details. The beautiful actress accessorized her heavy gown with Jimmy Choo heels and H. Stern jewelry. A classic up do and flawless make up made for a memorable appearance.

Rihanna went for another black moment on the Red Carpet, when she chose this bold, tight, crocodile skin applique gown wearing the signature of designer Tom Ford. Riri styled the long sleeved dress with simple black pumps, minimal jewelry and ultra long black nails. Her signature make up and a funky hair do added up to the sultry look.

Celebrity Fashion Crush – The Givenchy Oversized Iris-Print Tee

Perfect for Spring and easy to style due to its versatility, the Givenchy Oversized Iris-Print Tee is already a celebrity favorite, being first spotted on trendsetter Rihanna, as she arrived at the JFK Airport in NYC on March 18. Today, actress Liv Tyler gave the Givenchy tee a spin, as she was seen leaving her hotel in Paris, France.

What I love most in this cases, is how the different styling and the personal touches, make both looks equally unique and inspiring.

Rihanna’s edgier approach teamed the black/purple Givenchy Oversized Iris-Print Tee with a casual pair of ripped blue jeans and the Alexander Wang Daria Suede Combat boots.

A JOYRICH Bone Collection Boston Bag, a gold collar necklace, black sunglasses and a selection of rings accessorized the cool look.

The Givenchy Leather Strappy Sandals and a pair of oversized sunglasses complemented the elegant approach.

Rihanna – Battleship Sydney Premiere

Since the last time I had the chance to write about her, Miss Riri went back to black and started promoting Battleship around the world, the action/sci-fi movie in which she stars as Raikes, an FBI espionage agent.

Keeping the Red Carpet balanced for the premieres, Rihanna assumed the more masculine style, whilst her co-star, actress Brooklyn Decker, is the one delivering the charmingly feminine looks.

Although I was excited to follow Rihanna during this promo tour, sadly I cannot say I fell head over heels for any of her looks up until now. For the Sydney Premiere though, the singer looked ultra chic donning a Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2012 number.

Powerful red lips, colorless nails with black stiletto tips, gold accessories and a classic bun with long bangs, complemented her simple yet sophisticated look.

Celebrity Fashion Crush – Denim On Denim

The fact that denim is so in (whether it was ever out of style) right now is no longer a surprise . It’s actually a quite refreshing, wearable and smart trend, for those who care to wear it, of course ! But lately, celebrities have been pushing this style one step further, as they are now casually pairing denim… with denim.

Even if it looks quite simple to wear, to actually wear denim on denim right, it’s not such an easy task, especially if you want to avoid walking around in the so called Canadian tuxedo.

Denim-On-Denim

Sporting a relaxed fashion on her free time, many might say way too relaxed, Charlize Theron was recently spotted wearing denim on denim, and she wore it right. In order to avoid the look from becoming to mathcy-matchy, one must always mix denims of different hues, in this case the lighter denim of the shirt, was paired with dark skinny jeans.

Even style icon Kate Bosworth seems to enjoy this emerging trend, throwing a simple white tank in the mix and being careful to balance the look – she teamed an ombre loose buttoned shirt, with fitted skinny jeans. Cause not everybody enjoys a baggy outfit.

Rihanna must do everything her way, and we love that about the successful singer. Her particular look mixes a lightweight denim shirt, with bleached denim spike-studded rhinestone cutoff shorts, layering another denim shirt, tied around the waist and tucked into the shorts. Too much ?

As for the accessories, you cannot go wrong with sunglasses and boots, either ankle boots, knee-length or as seen on Rihanna, the Christian Louboutin Sea.nn Girl thigh-high leather boots.

Finishing touches: Charlize styled her look with a Christian Dior Cannage Medium tote, Kate added JewelMint accessories, whilst Rihanna opted for a cool Trapstar Dream Team cap.

How do you feel about this trend ? Would you wear it ? Let me know, XO

Rihanna – 2012 Brit Awards

Earlier this week, singer/trendsetter Rihanna, attended the 2012 Brit Awards in style, by wearing yet another daring gown, this time, part of the Givenchy Spring 2012 Couture collection.

Rihanna seems to be heading in a new fashion direction, if we were to judge based on the last couple of sexy appearances the star made. I guess this was just the natural step forward.

The gold halter gown, with a deep plunging neckline and a high slit in the center, was paired with Opera length brown leather gloves and light gold diamond ankle strapped heels.

Rihanna wore her controversial blonde locks pulled back in a french twist, but opted to leave her long bangs down.

A gold necklace, a glossy nude lipstick and barely there make-up, finished up the look.

Rihanna – 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards

After the laid-back look worn by Rihanna at the 2012 ROC Nation Pre-Grammy Brunch, I was kind of expecting her to blew us away whilst attending the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

And she did, by proving also that it doesn’t take much for her, to steal the spotlight. On Sunday night, all eyes were on the Giorgio Armani custom dress, that Riri co-designed and wore with such attitude.

Rihanna---Giorgio-Armani

The black custom made gown, had a deep plunging neckline, a bold thigh-high central split, a daring opened back, and yet, enough silk coverage, to keep the gown dignifying.

The daring look was completed with a Jimmy Choo Spring 2011 Metallic Cosma clutch, Christian Louboutin Bis Un Bout pumps gold jewelry and flawless make-up.

I don’t know how you’ll feel about this look, I just think it complemented both her sillouethe, and her always sexy attitude. Some women were born to wear dresses like this one.
