Evening Gown Envy!

Every now and again I get seriously green eyed when I see red carpet dresses that I think are amazing!

Unfortunately, without a mega budget, these styles will only be seen in my dreams, but hey I still love to imagine what I would look like wearing them!  After seeing this year’s Met Ball photos, I fell hard for some of the looks and I mean HARD!

…. Emma Stone and Blake Lively pulled out all the stops to impress hostess Vogue Editor, Anna Wintour, in gowns by Thakoon and Gucci Premi

And you have to admire the simply stunningly bold Oscar De La Renta dress worn by SJP.  Love or hate it you have to admit it makes a statement and gloriously celebrates fashion which is what the Met Ball is all about!

BIG time, serious dress envy when I saw Rosie Huntington Whiteley wear a jaw droppingly daring Balmain sort dress!  I WANT it

Aaahhhhh, I would die happy if I had Victoria Beckham’s dress hanging in my wardrobe.  You NEVER disappoint VB and I love the fact this is from her own collection with trademark full zip running the length of the dress at the back ..

And I have to admit I actually really like Chrissy Teigen’s dress by Ralph Lauren as well.  It wasn’t my absolute favourite of the night BUT I loved the collar detail.  I thought it was stunningly elegant and the silver grey colour did stand out from the crowd too

Back to daydreaming about these gorgeous gowns and the gorgeous women who wore them. Bloody lucky ducks!!!

 

Week Long Tribute to Fashion Police

My blogs over the next few days are devoted to this week’s Fashion Police with Joan Rivers. I simply love this show!

So I start today’s blog on a positive note …. best dressed pick of the week – Emma Stone, at the premiere of the new Spider Man movie. Dressed in Gucci she was described by George and Kelly as “total perfection”. The gothic theme is big on the runways of Gucci and indeed Dolce & Gabana at the moment so Emma is bang on trend. The “screen siren” won best dressed as the panel agreed she was sexy without being too revealing. There was a high slit in the dress but the layer of chiffon just toned the level of this down. The subtleness of mesh on the decolletage again meant the dress kept you guessing. You knew there was sex appeal all over this but it left you wanting more. The make up and hair again matched the gothic theme beautifully with a dark eye and burgundy lips, thus completing the look. A very well deserved best dressed award. Well done Emma!
