Olivia Wilde is walking proof that the contrasting prints and colours thing works!

Last Updated on 18th June 2014 If you want to get on board the trend of mixing and matching contrasting prints and colours but aren’t too sure about how it might look, then you’re in luck. You’re in luck because the gorgeous Olivia Wilde is walking proof of how well it can work when it’s done right. And believe us, she really has done it right! The actress and new yummy mummy was out and about in New York, wearing a very attention-grabbing ensemble from the Stella McCartney Resort 2015 collection. Aside from the shoes, Olivia wore the pieces exactly as they were presented in the designer’s lookbook, but still managed to make the look her own. She accessorised her outfit with a mini Proenza Schouler bag (oh, to have her wardrobe!) and blue Stuart Weitzman sandals. We really can’t fault a single aspect of this look; we’re going to raid our wardrobes for a striped tee and pair it with our favourite printed maxi skirt to try and recreate the look ourselves.

Olivia Wilde vs. Kara Tointon…Who wore Clover Canyon better?

Hey, look! It’s another instalment of two girls, one dress, and we’re pretty darn excited about it! Splitting the style brigade at HQ this week are actresses Olivia Wilde and Kara Tointon (she, of Eastenders) in an eye-catching, resort 2014 Clover Canyon dress. Getting first dibs on the Cuban-inspired collection was Olivia Wilde, who wore said dress to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon, in August last year. Flying the flag high for head turning print, Olivia completed her look with matching parrot green heels and clutch, and opted for super-simple make-up with a subtly volumised up-do. Catching up with the eternally chic Ms. Wilde is Kara Tointon, who wore the same dress to InStyle magazine’s The Best of British Talent pre-BAFTA party, last week. Opting to go accessory-free; Kara rounded off her look with punchy turquoise pumps, bold red lips and a swept back bouffant hairstyle. So, who takes the style crown this week? Although both ladies brought their own, we’re going with Olivia on this one. The pairing of tropical green accessories against the gorgeous dress works wonders, and even lets Olivia’s near washed-out complexion off the hook. We love Kara’s look, but the ancient hairstyle and lack of accessories give off an unfinished vibe. Agree with our style verdict? Whose look wins for you? [Images: Olivia; Kara]

Dakota Fanning vs. Olivia Wilde…Who wore A.L.C. better?

Last Updated on 15th October 2013 This week’s fash-off is quite the monochrome style match. With Dakota Fanning in white and Olivia Wilde in black, both ladies donned the A.L.C. Petra dress months apart, complete with head turning effect. First up to slip into the form-flattering dress was Olivia Wilde, who took the classic LBD route on the red carpet at the For the Love of Cinema event at the Tribeca Film Festival, back in April. Accessorising with a black clutch and Tabitha Simmons Dee sandals, neutral make-up and softly tousled hair nicely rounded off Olivia’s look. But giving the gorgeous Hollywood darling a run for her money was Dakota Fanning, who went with the white version at last month’s Festival du Film International of Rio de Janeiro. Sleek hair and barely-there make-up was on offer, whilst an unexpected flash of colour was delivered courtesy of deep red, patent-leather Christian Louboutin Iriza pumps. So, whose look will be victorious in securing this week’s coveted title of style champion? Given our penchant for LBDs, we’d love to say Olivia, but, a twist on a clean look is just as welcome. Therefore, we duly crown Dakota this week’s winner – especially when it comes to playing down the angelic tones of a white look. Those red Loubs has us at hello! Agree with our style verdict? Tell us your thoughts below. [Images: Olivia; Dakota]

Olivia Wilde is naturally beautiful for Allure’s October issue

Last Updated on 20th September 2013 We can’t seem to get enough of Olivia Wilde these days, and it looks like the magazines of the world feel the same way, as here she is on the cover of yet another glossy. This time round Olivia Wilde is gracing the cover of Allure’s October issue – no bells and whistles, no gimmicks, just her naturally beautiful face! It’s not just her flawless face we’re ogling at though, as she’s modelling some fierce fashion ensembles too, from Calvin Klein to 3.1 Philip Lim to Tom Ford and more. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: her SNL fiancé Jason Sudeikis is one lucky man. Although if Olivia’s interview is anything to go by, she thinks it’s the other way round… “I met Jason, and I thought he was so charming. He’s a great dancer and I’m a sucker for great dancers,” she gushed to the mag. “But he didn’t even get my number. Over the next six months we kept running into each other. One night my best guy friend walked up to him and said, ‘This is Olivia’s number. Use it.’ That was the beginning.” Aww – what a great story to tell the kids and grandkids! You can read the rest of Olivia’s interview and see her unmissable editorial pics in Allure‘s October issue, out September 24th.

Olivia Wilde dares to bare in Gucci at Rush London premiere

Last Updated on 3rd September 2013 Wilde by name and wild by sartorial nature. Olivia Wilde dared to bare at the premiere of her new film Rush in London’s Leicester Square last night, opting to walk the red carpet in a dangerously plunging black Gucci jumpsuit that no doubt got her a lot of attention. The actress ensured that the rest of her look was just as bold, edgy and sexy by adding a seriously bold red lip, statement eye make-up and no distracting accessories. The simplicity was part of this look’s appeal – Olivia didn’t put a foot wrong! If you think Gucci and Olivia are a match made in heaven, then we urge you to see Rush as her character Suzy Miller’s costumes were made by Gucci’s Frida Giannini herself. Is this one of Olivia Wilde’s sexiest looks to date? Jason Sudeikis is one lucky fella!

Gucci’s Frida Giannini designs Olivia Wilde’s Rush costumes

Last Updated on 28th August 2013 Olivia Wilde’s brand new film Rush – about Formula 1 in 1976 and directed by the Academy Award winning Ron Howard, fyi – just got that little bit more glamorous thanks to its new costume designer. Gucci’s very own Frida Giannini has got on board, and has been exploring both Formula 1 and 1970s archives to find inspiration for Olivia Wilde and costar Chris Hemsworth’s costumes. “The style of Suzy Miller (Olivia’s character) is the essence of Gucci as it captures the mixture of sexy allure and innocent naturalness that defined the style of the time,” she said. “The Seventies has always been a decade that has inspired me greatly, so it was extremely exciting to be asked by Ron Howard to help design wardrobes for RUSH. It is hard to think of a more glamorous profession than being a racing driver in the Seventies. The sketches are making us very excited, so we can’t wait to see the finished pieces. [Grazia]

Olivia Wilde is Best Dressed of the Week in J.Mendel

Last Updated on 25th August 2013 Fair to say, we’re welcoming autumn/winter’s darker tones with open arms. As the sartorial spectrum travels from frothy summer hues and giddy prints to more serious, pared back silhouettes and shades, the red carpet is offering a constant stream of delectable looks that are no-brainers for our BDOTW accolade! And that’s why Olivia Wilde, in a greyish-blue J.Mendel pre-fall 2013 number, simply had us at hello! As she attended the screening of her latest movie, Drinking Buddies, in Brooklyn, Olivia cut an elegant figure in the simple yet striking, cut-out detail dress. The gorgeously flared skirt, interesting figure-hugging detail on the top half and next to nothing accessories made for an applause-worthy look. Completing Olivia’s look were nude Louboutin ‘Croisilleta’ sandals, a fine bracelet and her softly tousled, centre-parted ombré hair worn down. What do you make of Olivia’s understated look? Worthy of BDOTW, or did you have another, equally stylish, contender in mind? [Image: Zimbio]

Olivia Wilde wears Chanel for InStyle US August

Last Updated on 15th July 2013 InStyle US has gone stripped back and natural, tapping gorgeous actress Olivia Wilde for its August 2013 issue. This just goes to show that you don’t need your cover stars to flash the flesh and overdose on sparkle for an attention-grabbing cover! In fact, a Chanel jacket and Guess jeans will pretty much do the trick. See above for proof! Olivia posed for a host of stunning pictures, and also opened up about her fiancé Jason Sudeikis, her bridesmaids, her confidence, and her sartorial choices of the past. “I’m pretty comfortable in my own skin,” Olivia told the mag. “I’m not the neurotic type. I don’t think there are things lurking everywhere to destroy me. I live pretty much in the present.” “I used to dress like bluesman John Lee Hooker, with wide-collared polyester shirts and corduroy suits. Boys were my role models back then. I have the torso of a tall woman and the lower body of a short woman. Who knows what evolutionary purpose I’ve been made for? People always told me I had nice eyes, so I accentuated that.” InStyle US’s August issue is out right now; will you be adding it to your magazine collection?

Olivia Wilde is the blushing bride for Avon’s Amour fragrance

Last Updated on 6th June 2013 We know what you’re thinking: Olivia Wilde and her Saturday Night Live fiancé Jason Sudeikis did a fine job of keeping their wedding ceremony hush hush until the big day was over… however, that’s not what’s going on in this pic, oh no. Olivia Wilde is just getting some practice in while promoting Avon’s brand new limited edition fragrance Amour, from the Today, Tomorrow, Always collection  – and why shouldn’t she? If Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton can wear more than one wedding dress… Still, at least Jase has a little sneak preview of his wife-to-be in her wedding finery. We’re not sure who designed the dress in the advert though, but we do know that Olivia will be floating down the aisle in a bespoke Monique Lhuillier creation when the big day comes… she said so herself during an ABC interview! Avon’s Amour fragrance retails for £14, and is available to buy right now! [Marie Claire]

Olivia Wilde talks falling “madly in love” in Marie Claire US April issue

Last Updated on 12th March 2013 Ever since her stint as rock chick bad gal Alex on The OC all those years ago, we’ve had a not-so-secret girl crush on Olivia Wilde. Can you blame us? So, you can imagine that we were pretty chuffed when we learnt she would be fronting Marie Claire US’s April issue. We were even more chuffed when we saw the cover and editorial images… chuffed and jealous, obviously. The gorgeous actress opened up to the mag about getting divorced, falling in love with Saturday Night Live’s hunky Jason Sudeikis, and planning their future together. “We were both seeing people but were single,” she recalled about getting together with Jason. “He seemed to really see me, see through the bullsh*t. He said very few words and couldn’t keep eye contact. He was so handsome and he could dance. “I thought, ‘I’m not beautiful enough or his type.’ I couldn’t wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 am! He didn’t kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed.” Don’t be so self-deprecating Olivia, you’re both as hot as each other and your babies will be beautiful. And speaking of babies… “We’ve discussed all our ideals and hopes. I can’t wait for children. I’m open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party.” Aww! You can read the rest of Olivia’s interview and see more stunning pictures in the Marie Claire US April issue which is out March 19th.

Olivia Wilde unleashes our inner green-eyed monster in Calvin Klein Collection

Last Updated on 1st October 2012 We would probably instantly bypass this green Calvin Klein Collection dress if we saw it on a clothes hanger due to its sack-like qualities and the fact that it comes with a cape, which we very well know takes a certain type of person to pull off. Think Gwyneth Paltrow at this year’s Oscars for an example of how the cape is done right. However, Olivia Wilde makes the cape dress look like the easiest thing to wear, looking absolutely resplendent in the dress from the brand’s latest Resort collection. Olivia’s gold sandals, chic up-do, dramatic eye make-up and nude, plump lips accompanied her dress beautifully, resulting in an overall flawless and extremely enviable look.  If we could look even half as good in a similar dress, we’d be very happy bunnies indeed!

Olivia Wilde wows in Alexander McQueen

Last Updated on 19th September 2012 Kanye West was definitely onto something when he told girlfriend Kim Kardashian that dressing in black and white was the sexiest sartorial option. Although he and Kim have got it wrong a few times (everyone’s human, after all) we hope they will look to Olivia Wilde for inspiration in the future. Olivia absolutely nailed the all-black trend when she attended Conde Nast Traveler’s “The Visionaries” event in New York last night in a stunning black Alexander McQueen dress. Olivia’s demure but edgy look highlights everything we love about the brand – the structure in the shoulders, the feminine flowing skirt and the sexiness in the plunging neckline. The actress doesn’t need a fancy belt to accentuate her tiny waist, but the one she chose was certainly a nice touch. It broke up black colour and complemented the golden tones of her hair and make-up beautifully. Olivia Wilde and Alexander McQueen are a dream team, and we can’t wait for them to join forces again!

Last Updated on 23rd December 2011 A few months ago, it was announced that Hollywood beauties Olivia Wilde and Emma Stone would become the new brand ambassadors of Revlon. We’ve waited patiently for what we knew would be fabulous ad campaigns, and as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. Gorgeous things actually.

Beauty look of the week: Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde is a natural beauty – she doesn’t need any glitz and glamour to look good – but here she is rocking a serious smoky eye to crank it up a notch anyway. Our perennial favourite for adding unrivalled rock and serious sex, the smoky eye is having a bit of a moment thanks to autumn’s beauty trends. But though it never really goes out of fashion, it can be fiddly to perfect. The trick to getting this look down? Don’t over do it. Start small and slowly apply more colour – remember, you can always add more, but you can’t take away quite so easily. If you’re gunning for more guidance, we’ve compiled a fool-proof product-by-product process that’ll help you perfect a smoky Sixties eye a la Olivia. A smoky eye will always look more defined against a beautiful backdrop. To get flawless looking skin like Olivia’s, try a foundation like Clinique’s Even Better Makeup for combination oily skins. This oil-free formula evens out skin tone and gives you a brighter complexion, which will make your eyes pop. Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15 Combination Oily Skins, £22, available at Debenhams. Our favourite palette for creating a sexy smoky eye this season is Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Palette in Blue Dahlia. In gorgeous shades of midnight, blend your blues with basic black to create mysterious peepers with extra depth. Apply a fine layer of black along both lashlines, shaping it into an extention of your eye shape before blending onto lids. Add a sweep of blue on top and work into the crease for added drama. Estee Lauder Pure Colour Palette (Blue Dahlia), £32, available at Harrods. Once you’re happy with your shadow, apply a thickening mascara like Laura Mercier’s Full Blown Lash Mascara to leave your lashes looking […]

Olivia Wilde rocks black lace on the red carpet

Last Updated on 25th July 2011 Whilst attending the premiere of Cowboys & Aliens at the San Diego Civic Theatre on Saturday, actress Olivia Wilde certainly stood out from the crowd in her D&G gown. The gorgeous black lace floor length designer frock definitely had a vintage aura about it, complete with slicked back hair and smokey eye makeup, Olivia certainly knows how to perfect the rock chic look. We’re loving Miss Wilde’s take on floral lace, but what do you guys at home think of her outfit? [poll id=”176″]

Olivia Wilde goes back to black at the Tribeca Film Festival

The Tribeca Film Festival in New York attracts hundreds of stars to the screenings of new films, and last week was no exception. Among the famous and fabulous was Tron actress Olivia Wilde, attending the premiere of One For All, in a simple, chic black dress by A.L.C. And we absolutely loved her entire look. With an on-trend thigh-high split (so next season!) and a low cut neckline, the dress could have crossed the line from tantilising to tarty but Olivia dressed it down with strings of long necklaces and simple black peep-toe heels by Christian Louboutin. Plus, her metallic clutch added just the right amount of eye-catching glam. But if her fabulous dress wasn’t enough, Olivia’s ‘do was to die for, too, sporting ombre highlights and a new blunt fringe that perfectly framed her feline eyes. Jealous? Us? [poll id=”96″]

Olivia Wilde in Armani

Whilst attending the Tron: Legacy UK film premiere in Leicester Square on Sunday, The O.C star Olivia Wilde looked effortlessly gorgeous in an Armani evening dress. The one-shouldered asymmetrical mini dress flattered her slender frame to perfection, while doing its best, we’re sure, to keep the cold London chill at bay – thank goodness for opaques is all we can say. The printed dress came complete with dazzling red carpet-worthy jewels, and teamed with a chic slicked-back up ‘do and stunning Stella McCartney heels, we couldn’t ask for more. Well done Olivia – America will certainly be proud.

Finding The Right Glasses For Your Face

Last Updated on 18th October 2016 Shopping for clothes is tough, shopping for glasses is tougher. This is because our faces are the most unique parts of us. Think about how many other people you know who are the same height or body type as you, or have the same foot size. We choose the length of leg or width of waist when buying jeans, and shoes come in helpful sizes and even half sizes. So why then is it so much harder with glasses and sunglasses? Why are there no sizes or precise criteria for us to follow? And it’s worse, because glasses can either work with our features or against them in a way clothes usually don’t. And the stakes are even higher with glasses — especially if you wear them every day. Well this guide looks to demystify glasses and how to choose the right pair for your face shape and size. It’s been written with the help and insight of Red Hot Sunglasses, who are experts in all things glasses and sunglasses. Face size First of all, it’s important to work out whether or not you have a large face or a small face. This can be trickier than it sounds as it can be arbitrary as to what constitutes a small or large face, and especially hard if you think you might actually be somewhere in the middle. Small face If you don’t know if you have a small face, compare yourself to these celebrities: Women: Kristen Stewart, Sarah Hyland, Reece Witherspoon Men: Colin Farrell, Jude Law, Leonardo DiCaprio If your face is small and you’re a woman, then the best advice is to opt for large or oversized glasses and sunglasses as the big, chunkier frames will actually emphasise your more feminine, softer features.

The CFDA Awards 2014: The best dressed!

Last Updated on 3rd June 2014 So we told you who the big award winners were earlier this morning, but now it’s time to take a look at who the sartorial winners were – the ones who stole the show and our hearts with their outfit choices! As Rihanna was collecting a Style Icon gong, it seemed only right that she make an iconic statement on the red carpet – and that’s exactly what she did in a glittering bespoke Adam Selman ensemble with 216,000 Swarovski crystals. Precise! Also impressing on the CFDA red carpet were Blake Lively (no surprises there, especially following her Cannes Film Festival style triumphs), supermodel extraordinaire Heidi Klum, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, and a gorgeous Olivia Wilde who still has that pregnant glow despite giving birth a few months ago. Motherhood clearly agrees with her! Take a look at the rest of our best-dressed celebs below, and let us know who gets your ultimate vote in the comments below or on Twitter.

WATCH: The 86th Academy Awards (Oscars 2014): The best dressed!

Last Updated on 3rd March 2014 The wait is finally over – the biggest red carpet day in Hollywood has officially arrived, and if you’ve been following us on Twitter, you’ll probably already know that we’ve been pretty excited about it! Popcorn, coffee, tablets (the technological kind), laptops and phones were on standby throughout the night to make sure we didn’t miss a single second of the 86th Academy Awards! We were waiting for 12 Years a Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o’s arrival with baited breath, and think she definitely saved the best dress for last. She stepped onto the red carpet in a custom made Prada dress that came in a stunning duck egg blue colour, complete with the hottest accessory of the night: a sparkling head band! Cate Blanchett – another one of our red carpet faves – didn’t let us down with her sartorial choice either, looking sensational in a Giorgio Armani dress that she owned from the second she stepped out of her car. Charlize Theron wowed the crowd in a black Dior gown (it pains us to say it, but we think her Dior dress trumped Jennifer Lawrence’s one – we still love you though, J-Law!), as did Kate Hudson and Jessica Biel in their respective and sensational Atelier Versace and Chanel Couture dresses. And it goes without saying, but Angelina Jolie stole the show in her bedazzling Elie Saab Couture dress and more or less put everyone else in the shade when she and Brad Pitt arrived just in the nick of time. Once again, we think the stars outdid themselves on the red carpet this year, meaning we had a bit of a tough time narrowing down our ultimate favourites. Check out our highlights from the Oscars 2014 red carpet, and don’t forget to […]

Gisele is the epitome of casual cool in LA

Last Updated on 5th February 2014 Gisele Bündchen is the epitome of casual cool in the picture above, isn’t she? The gorgeous supermodel is living proof that simple blue jeans and an effortless white jumper can be a winning sartorial combination; having beautiful beach waves and an enviable golden glow doesn’t do any harm, either! We also couldn’t help but notice Gisele’s hand candy, the cute aqua coloured bkr bottle she is carrying. Gisele isn’t the only super or celeb to be spotted out and about with these trendy glass and silicone bottles. Jessica Alba, Olivia Wilde, Natalie Portman and fellow Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio are just some of the bkr bottle’s famous fans. We think we might channel Gisele and snap one up for ourselves; who’s with us?

The Golden Globes 2014: The best dressed!

Last Updated on 13th January 2014 Golden Globes time! Yep, it was the 71st annual Golden Globe Award ceremony in Beverly Hills yesterday, and the red carpet was once again full of the biggest and best-dressed names in Hollywood. TV and films stars alike came together for one of the biggest nights on the awards season calendar, and to say they pulled out all the sartorial stops would be a bit of an understatement, as we don’t think our list of best-dressed celebs has ever been this big! Lupita Nyong’o definitely stole the show for us with her effortlessly elegant Ralph Lauren caped look (we got flashbacks to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford cape dress at the Oscars a few years ago) while Olivia Wilde and Camila Alves also made our jaws drop with their glittering gowns courtesy of Gucci Première and Dolce and Gabbana respectively. Unsurprisingly, Sofia Vergara went for the wow factor in a large Zac Posen dress, while Jennifer Lawrence went for a Dior dress, as was expected. Take a look at the full list of our best-dressed ladies below and let us know who took your breath away! Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren Olivia Wilde in Gucci Première Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé Sofia Vergara in Zac Posen Taylor Swift in Carolina Herrera Camila Alves in Dolce and Gabbana Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad Couture Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung Margot Robbie in Gucci Emma Watson in Dior Couture Mila Kunis in Gucci Première Amy Adams in Valentino Couture Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Uma Thurman in Atelier Versace Kerry Washington in Balenciaga Reese Witherspoon in Calvin Klein Emma Roberts in Lanvin Naomi Watts in Tom Ford Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta Allison Williams in Alexander McQueen

Jennifer Aniston wears Valentino for Glamour US September 2013

Last Updated on 31st July 2013 The September issues are coming thick and fast, and we have another one for you to gaze at this morning, this time courtesy of Glamour US and the one and only Jennifer Aniston. Jen is a proven success as far as fashion glossies are concerned – they seem to shift an incredible amount of copies, so having her on a September issue makes perfect sense! The gorgeous actress looks just as fresh faced and fabulous as the first day her Friends character Rachel Green strutted into Central Perk in a wedding dress… no wonder Alexei Hay’s camera lens loves her! Jennifer chats to the mag (not just any old interviewer though: her We’re the Millers costar and fiancé of one Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis) about family, her fiancé Justin Theroux, and choosing happiness… “If you’re not happy, you can become happy,” she told Jason. “Happiness is a choice. That’s the thing I really feel. Like with friends who refuse to get happy, who refuse to rise above the discomfort of where they’re at. You actually deserve to have a family . And once you meet yourself, and truly love yourself, then you attract that.” Aw, what a beautiful, inspirational thing to say! You can read more of her interview in the September issue of Glamour which hits newsstands on August 6th.

Blake Lively, Katy Perry and more “Chime for Justice, Health and Education” in new Gucci vid

Last Updated on 17th April 2013 Gucci’s Chime for Change project just keeps getting bigger and better every day, with even more A-list ladies lending their support to the wonderful organisation. The newest faces to get behind the movement include Blake Lively, Katy Perry, Halle Berry, Freida Pinto, Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana, Evan Rachel Wood and Jada Pinkett Smith and can be seen supporting the cause in the very moving and motivational video below. “What inspires me and what I think ultimately inspires women and other people is knowing that change is possible,” Halle Berry says in the video. “At the click of a button we can be connected around the world.” Katy Perry also chimes in… “If I feel strongly about something the whole world will know in a matter of seconds.” We hope Katy Perry’s involvement in the video means that she too will join the likes of Beyonce and Rita Ora in the Chime for Change concert which is taking place on Twickenham this summer – we’ll keep you posted on those updates as and when we get them.

Vanity Fair and Elton John’s Oscars parties: The best dressed!

The 2012 Independent Spirit Awards: The best dressed

Last Updated on 27th February 2012 Oscars, they may not be, but that doesn’t mean the outfits worn on the red carpet were any less exciting. In fact, a few of the looks worn at the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards were far better received at MFL HQ than some of those from yesterday’s Academy Awards. Is it because the attendees are so desperate to get it right on the Oscars red carpet that they hold back or play it safe?

We weren’t sure if it could match up to last year’s offering which included the likes of Anne Hathaway, Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Lawrence among others, but it has definitely put up a good fight to say the least.

Golden Globes 2011: trend round-up

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 So we’ve given you the gossip as it happened and we’ve scrutinised the stars’ style to bring you the best and worst dressed – but that’s not all on our sartorial radar. This year’s 68th Golden Globes saw some serious red carpet trends, and as our favourite retailers rush to get their hands on the key pieces and recreations, we’re here to round them up and show you what to look out for in elegant eveningwear this season. Statement scarlett red With Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks and January Jones taking centre stage in statement scarlett gowns by Romona Keveza and Versace respectively, vivid, vibrant red made a va va voom visual on the matching coloured carpet. Emerald green This surprise stand-out trend of the night saw Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis and Catherine Zeta Jones turn heads in rich emerald green. From Angie’s classic long-sleeved Atelier Versace to Mila’s one-shouldered Vera Wang, this jewel tone shone like no other on Sunday night. Romantic nudes Soft and ethereal, this year’s romantic nudes were a subtle elegance on the red carpet with Scarlett Johansson, Leighton Meester and Dame Helen Mirren all opting for subdued blush tones and second-skin shades. Pretty pinks This year’s Golden Globes played host to a wash of pretty pinks and sweet honeysuckles. From Megan Fox‘s pastel Armani Prive to lady of the night Natalie Portman‘s blush Viktor and Rolf gown, this look was all about celebrating girliness. Serious sparkle Whether on Olivia Wilde‘s frothy Marchesa ballgown or Anne Hathaway‘s figure-skimming Armani Prive piece, statement sparkle was head to toe in these all-or-nothing glittering gowns. Minimalist lines In stark contrast to the girls above, minimalism cut through the carpet as a serious style contender with the likes of Claire Danes, Nicole Kidman and Emma […]

Golden Globes 2011: best dressed

Last Updated on 19th January 2011 It’s that time of year again when the longest red carpet in Hollywood plays host to the 2011 Golden Globe Awards, and in case you missed our live coverage last night, we’re here to round up the front-running designer frocks and the what-were-you-thinking disasters. From statement scarlet red and rich emerald green to romantic peaches and nudes, take a look at our pick of best dressed celebs that wowed at the Beverly Hilton last night… Leading the way in the sartorial stakes was Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks (above) who looked positively stunning in a scarlet silk crepe floor length Romona Keveza gown – who said red heads can’t wear red? Next up, Black Swan actress Natalie Portman survived the pressure in an elegant Viktor and Rolf silk blush dress with a red sequinned floral embellishment and matching red accessories that we got to see in all the more details when she picked up her Best Actress Award. Angelina Jolie swapped her usual black on black look in favour of this long sleeved sequinned emerald green Versace gown – the power shoulders and scooped back complete with soft side-swept hair proved a huge hit for Angie. Following in the Versace suit was Mad Men actress January Jones (no surprise there), who pulled off flashing all that flesh in a cut-away floor-sweeping red fringed gown. Claire Danes led the way for spring style and opted for a neon pink Calvin Klein halterneck dress – it’s a hard cut to pull off, but the minimalist column cut and colour-popping pink saw this actress reach new sartorial heights (and pick up a Best Actress for TV Series Award). Dressed in a jaw-dropping figure hugging Giorgio Armani dress was actress Anne Hathaway, who too went for big shoulders, […]

Lavazza calendar 2011: the calendar

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 Did we thoroughly whet your taste buds after hearing all about Lavazza’s 2011 calendar launch yesterday? Good – now let us drench them with the ins and outs of the new calendar, Falling in Love in Italy, as shot by Mark Seliger. As you may have guessed by now, the new calendar is inspired by the very thing that makes Italy – and Italians – special: love. Their love of the city, their love of each other, and their love of coffee. “Over a cup of coffee people can put aside their differences and fall in love,” says Seliger, explaining his interpretation of Lavazza’s love message. And it’s this idea – the idea that coffee is more than just a drink, that it’s a social tool to ignite friendship and romance – that’s reflected in the six stories that make up 2011’s Falling in Love in Italy. A stellar cast including British model Bill Gentle, Violet Budd and Olivia Wilde (one of America’s brightest future acting stars, FYI) tell various tales of love in specially-created scenes from Italy’s most famous cities and faces, from Cupid to Capris, to Tuscany and Venice, all captured through Seliger’s lens and displayed in six beautiful images. “For me, love is all about finding something that excites you, feeling that excitement, discovering what ignites your soul, and then allowing yourself to share those passions, cherish them and incorporate them into every second of your day,” says Seliger. “What made me fall in love with Italy was the ‘combination’ of people, there’s a certain quality of life that makes Italy truly unique.” And though it may be a je nais c’est quois to you and us, we’re glad that Seliger knows what that quality is and managed to capture in […]

Golden Globes 2010: the dresses

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 So, in case you hadn’t heard, it RAINED at the Golden Globes and, hold the phone , some A listers even held their own umbrellas. Now, as big as that news was , we were more concerned with the award winners, Ricky Gervais’ presenting job and of course, the dresses. See below for a pick of red carpet hits – alongside the occasional miss… Olivia Wilde – Gucci The House star and former OC actress went for the glamour vamp look for the red carpet, noting that her Gucci gown would be sold off at auction. Proceeds will be going towards the support efforts in Haiti. Julianne Moore – Balenciaga We love Julianne Moore but this Balenciaga gown just doesn’t seem to sit right and has ended up looking a little unflattering. Still, she got to spend the night with Tom Ford as her date so she gets extra fashion credit for that one! January Jones – Lanvin It might be black but there is nothing boring about the Mad Men star’s full length Lanvin ensemble. The actress added a bit of prom night glamour with a matching satin headband and Brian Atwood platforms. Jennifer Morrison – Luis Antonio Major congratulations to Jennifer Morrison who has nabbed a boyfriend that can go out and do her clothes shopping, successfully. The House star proudly told the red carpet that she received this textured number from Puerto Rican designer, Luis Antonio for Christmas. We bet she was one of a few wearing something from their own wardrobe! Kristen Bell – Jasmine di Milo We can’t understand why Kristen Bell told the world she wore a shorter dress to the ceremony because she needed to ‘to be able to move like a tiger’ but we’ll let it […]

Golden Globes 2009: Fashion Round-up (Part 1)

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 How nice has it been to be able to just shamelessly indulge in red carpet fashion from the Golden Globes? Maybe it’s because we didn’t get the opportunity last year but I’ve loved every minute of it. Expect a more subdued ceremony this year we were told. Well, if “subdued equals classy, sophisticated and demure then I hope the Oscars are seriously sombre. O.K, now let’s talk trends. Strapless gowns were popular this year along with the usual one shouldered options which tend to be a red carpet favourite. The odd bright jewel tones courtesy of Cameron Diaz and Eva Longoria was much needed amongst a sea of nude and neutral shades and classic dark hues while Hollywood glamour at its finest came in the form of fishtail hemlines and bold statement necklaces!
