Olympic Metallics

Be inspired by the London Olympics & dress for gold, silver or bronze…

All that sparkles…
no Olympic event is complete without the lustre of precious metal. Salute your Olympic heroes’ with a glamorous, shimmering of gold, silver or bronze.

While diamonds are a girl’s best friend – precious metals can be equally enchanting. Whether you choose to add your metallic sparkle to wrists with selection of heavy jewels or to your eyes with a glistening shadow – molten metals can add a show stopping shimmer.

And while discretion is often the epitome of chic, don’t be afraid to embrace the heavy metal movement. A full length metallic gown can be truly hypnotising…

Will you be going for gold, silver or bronze? xx

Golden Globes Best Dressed

From Chanel to Dior, Versace, Gucci, Prada and more – the ladies of Hollywood dazzled in the world’s most exquisite gowns…

The biggest trend of the night – fishtail gowns. From Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli to Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang and Reese Witherspoon & Elle Macpherson both in Zac Posen – fishtail gowns added a grand Old-Hollywood elegance to the Red Carpet.

A 1920’s exuberance could also be felt from Salma Hayek’s dazzling art deco inspired gown and Charlize Theron’s divine styling – her hair swept softly back in loose waves with a vintage 1920’s Cartier hair band. Michelle Williams also wore a hair band on the red carpet (surely igniting an important trend for coming Awards ceremonies). Theron’s gown, one of my absolute favourites, in blush-coloured chiffon with an oversized bow at the waist and thigh-high slit, is the perfect embodiment of timeless, iconic style.

My favourites on the red carpet…

– Evan Rachel Wood show stopping in Gucci
– Sofia Vergara perfection in Vera Wang
 Salma Hayek glistening in Gucci
– Julianne Moore timeless in Chanel Haute Couture
– Rooney Mara chic in Nina Ricci
– Charlize Theron darling in Dior Couture

Who was your best dressed on the red carpet? xx

From Alexander McQueen’s extraordinary Spring / Summer 2012 vision to Giambattista Valli’s first couture collection; the red carpet options are looking exceptionally bright.

Choosing glistening subtle neutral shades, vivid colour or classic black; from lace embellishment to streamlined chic – what will the stars wear on this grand occasion? Be sure to see tomorrow’s Espresso Shot Of Fashion News for full details.
