Chic This Week

Wonderful White

Photos from vogue.co.uk

Nothing looks as chic as white on the red carpet.

White is fresh, sophisticated and youthful. It looks amazing on any skin colour and body shape. When done correctly, white definitely makes a fashion statement!

In the last week, several highly fashionable ladies have worn white with effortless style and finesse. Choosing white dresses from some of my favourite designer houses – from Valentino to Dior and Pucci. I was especially thrilled to see Kate Bosworth wearing a look from Jil Sander’s S/S11 collection. The crisp white tee and long mint coloured skirt are so divine! Kate Bosworth’s red carpet style is beyond words! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

The details…

>> Michelle Williams’ mini dress by Dior is ultra sweet! William’s wore white to the premiere of her film Blue Valentine.

>> Kate Bosworth was perfection in Jil Sander

>> Jessica Alba wore Valentino to the premiere of Little Fockers in New York.

>> Gwyneth Paltrow chose Monique Lhuillier while receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

>> Lea Michele wore The Row at the Hollywood Style Awards.

>> For the X Factor final Dannii Minogue sparkled in Jenny Packham. (Ok I know this technically isn’t white – but this dress is so gorgeous it needed to be included)

>> Making the list for the second time this week, Gwyneth Paltrow wore Pucci.

Who do you think wore white best on the red carpet this week? xx

Jessica Alba’s Evolving Style

Photos from twenty2.onsugar.com and style.com

This year Jessica Alba has been dressing to impress. With an evolving style that includes a taste for the major fashion houses – from Chanel to Dior, Balmain, Valentino and Dolce and Gabbana – Alba is set to fast become a style icon.

So… this week we celebrate the emerging fashion style of Jessica Alba!

Making a name for herself in the fashion world, Alba is regularly topping the best dressed lists. With many of her looks taken straight from the catwalk, Alba’s effortless carefree glamour makes for the perfect accompaniment to the striking pieces. Choosing show stopping dresses to flatter Alba’s incredible body, I think Jessica Alba’s stylist may be in need of a raise…

Alba’s relaxed weekend look, red-carpet glamour and carefree elegance – always has her looking ultra chic and making quite the style statement.

My Favourite Jessica Alba look:
Dolce and Gabbana, Fall 2010 Collection

Tailoring, sex appeal, lace and lingerie are what Dolce and Gabbana are known for. Always creating immaculately tailored pieces that fit and flatter a woman’s curves – they know women and how to dress them. Elegant yet undeniably sexy, the Dolce and Gabbana dress (pictured top) was one of my favourite looks from the Fall 2010 collection. The seductive floral print with lots of sheer layers is refined, chic and sexy. Love the long sheer sleeves and unfinished hemline. Bellissimo!
