Having just looked through the 2014 collection by Zuhire Murad, I would say I am a devout fan.

The dresses ooze glamourous high fashion and drama- the type of dress that will make everyone stop and stare- not for the faint hearted or the shy these gowns are the top of our list for the fall couture 2014.zuhair murad 2014 collection blue dress zuhair-murad034

Plunging necklines, nipped waists, sharp shoulders and silutte enhancing structures show which show just the right amount of skin to be uber sexy yet still sophisticated.

Floor length and shorter styles graced the catwalk with bright colours such as teal, royal blue and burgundy red a colour for every skin tone and personality.

Inspiration behind this line was geometric patterns and metallic sequins.

With such dramatic and wow-ing gowns accessories such as necklaces and earrings were at a minimum which is perfect-put the budget to the dress! So all that you need is a small clutch and a cinched belt

Makeup was also kept to the classic smokey eye, swept back hair and nutrual tones once again to keep focus on the beauty of the gown.

Sultry.

This trend we have mentioned over the past few months has been found on stage with none other than Beyonce!

The hottest singer performed songs from the past and her current album 4 in a variety of hot outfits- one included a white halter dress with gold embellished sequins on the shoulder and it appears to combine a gladiator style skirt with varied lengths of stings.

The dress was awesome showed off the right amount of her fabulous body- the filming of this show was clearly before she begun to “show” her baby bump so she is still very slim.

The Orange Drop hem red skirt is a very dramatic piece- it works well to showcase her toned legs and small hips due to its large poofy dimensions.

We looked at a few similar options for you to achieve this trend.

Our favourite is this black drop hem Maria Grachvogel : Aesop skirt RRP £1,181.67 | $1,774.50

The black skirt is great for a multitude of occasions from a date out with the friends to an exclusive party its a great versatile skirt that can be worn with most and to most places.

The pretty Jessica Alba was the queen bee for the turning on of the Christmas lights last night, the actress took center stage as she posed for pictures at the Swarovski event at the Rodeo Drive boutique.

The gorgeous SinCity actress looked marvolous in a striking gown and was in impeccable shape after giving birth only three months prior to her second daughter Haven.

Her dress, which we love is by Carolina Herrera and mixes class and sophistication of a Stepford housewife and modern day glamour.

The dress; part of the Resort 2012 collection hugged her in all of the right places- showcasing her svelte waist and slim legs.

The dress is embossed with dainty floral patterns on the skirt and a simple black wavey belt broke up the top half of the dress which she also complimented with a black embellished clutch bag.

The ivory and black gown complimented her tanned skin well and alongside a dark smokey eye makeup and a very simple updo.

She kept the outfit simple with a basic floral Swarovski necklace and black earrings.

With the final attempt of taking the outfit out of the “safe zone” she wore a pair of snakeskin heels

So last night was the American Music Awards 2011 and some of the largest singers were out to collect their awards.

Of course we have to post our favourite of which there were many- but one which has caused me most excitement is one of my favourite female rappers- Nicki Minaj.

The young money artist has had an amazing year and amazing success at the show- winning several awards.

She performed her latest track and her current highest selling single SuperBass in a metallic robot outfit which was rather impressive- however unlike usual Nicki she was singing?- I have to be honest and say- I was not keen on this- she came out a rapper and I think she should continue down this path but anyway- we are here to talk clothes not poor career changes!

So Nicki accepted awards in a very dramatic Oscar De La Renta dress– only yesterday I was checking out some of the designers pieces and he is noted as one of the most expensive designers in the world!

Nicki’s dress is from the 2012 spring collection and one of the first celebrities to get her hands on the collection- which makes sense as she sat first row at his show back in September so she must have picked it as it walked by her on the model!

The dress was a bold green silk taffeta with a black battenburg lace and broderie anglaise bodice-  It also had a matching neck band.

She adopted her favourite colour for hair this particular evening- which complimented the gown and her lips- which is probably her limited edition Mac pink Friday lipstick.

She is also the latest spokesperson alongside Ricky Martin for MAC Cosmetics- and a pretty cool photograph came out of the pair- which is rather striking but the pair seems rather bazaar couple put together.

The dress is very similar to what we have been talking about as the upcoming trends or asymmetrical hem lines- which this is a less dramatic version but still follows suit.

We love it-

Nicki Loves it-

Under the dress she opted for some Alexander McQueen amour wedge sandals Rrp £2,495.00

Since starring on Britain’s X Factor Kelly Rowland has been in and out of the news due to cat fights and terrible illness and excuses but as they say all press is good press and thus it has been a great opportunity for her to show what she can do without fellow lead band mate Beyonce– It was such a great opportunity for her to shine and be centre stage and I believe she has added an awesome presence to the show and the american colloquialisms bring something different. Anyway she was spotted yesterday night in Manchester alongside many other guests for the charity event held by Gary Barlow for Children in Need.

Despite “calling-in-sick” over a few weeks on the show Kelly looked radiant in a beautiful Leopard print dress that fitted her curves amazingly!

The singer has been open about her surgery and I can say it really adds to the dress and she is clearly happy to show her figure off in the gown- the plunging neckline works well with her long wavy black hair and rather odd purple shoes.

We found a similar gown by Haute Hippie for £853.49 | $1,295.00

I personally love maxi dresses, they are great as they tend to elongate the body giving a curvy sultry appearance that can easily be achieved on and off holiday with the right print this look can be replicated without even trying.

Easily worn with a cute pair of wedges or heels and this instantly transforms the look to glamourous vixen as demonstrated by Kelly.

Ah well- she looks great in my eyes..well done Ms Rowland!

A few years ago, I happened to babysit my friends kid as a favour and she brought over the film Enchanted with Amy Adams and the beautiful Patrick Dempsey,  I sat half watching as the opening credits begun but within minutes I ended up closest to the screen ogling in glee. I loved the film- I loved Patrick and I loved even more Amy, so it brings me great pleasure to introduce to you the Premier of her latest film The Muppets. The red head stars alongside How I met your mother actor Jason Segel  for the Disney classic remake.

Amy looked magical on the red carpet opting for a subtle yet striking colour blocking technique which we have seen a lot this year from Kim Kardashian and a plethora of other celebrities.

The dress is part of Roland Mouret’s collection, Amy has often opted for Rolands dresses, they seem to fit her physic really well and always comes across lovely on the red carpet and today was no exception.

The bright red skirt has a nude trim which compliments the remainder of the dress and her patent nude Jimmy Choo shoes alongside Irit Design jewellery and a Ferragamo bag

Another beautiful celebrity that attended the Glamour awards last night in New York, was the lovely actress Kerry Washington. I had to post this article on her dress as I thought it was divine. The colour, The bling, The high split- it all worked so well for this awesome gal. The dress was part of the Resort 2012 Marchesa collection– I had a peek at the other designs and it is a great mix of vibrant and lovely gowns for red carpet or cocktails with friends..a really awesome designer than needs to be worn a lot more!

As pictured her designs are very young, youthful fun and fresh and perfect for Ms Washington.

The Yellow gown was a great choice for her golden complexion- not many people can pull of yellow but she certainly does-a few months ago we posted her in another yellow gown, so she knows, and we can certainly see it adds vibrancy and a summer time feel to the red carpet (despite the cold winter looming!)

The Lemon gown has a high split- which seems to be making a comeback for this particular award show- Jennifer Lopez also adopted the high split option (found here)

She complimented the dress with white beaded Marchesa clutch bag, some large diamond earrings and the celeb favourite Louboutin nude pointy painful heels.

Absolutely stunning!

It’s that great time of the year again for The annual Glamour Women Of The Year Awards and as usual there were some amazing gowns out on show this particular night.

One of my favourite entertainers Ms J-Lo took to the stage looking ravishing in a nude/silver coloured gown by Versace, the figure hugging dress perfectly held her sumptuous curves as she posed on the red carpet. The ‘Into you’ singer donned the remarkably high split-to-the-thigh gown showcasing her firmly toned and tanned pins.

This is not the first time Jennifer has opted for Versace, back in 2000 she wore a green outfit by the designer which also caused a stirr due to its low cut front- seems to me that J-Lo gets it right in Versace it puts on display the best and hides the rest (which isn’t really much!).

Back in the day...

The awards  took place at the Carnegie Hall yesterday (Monday 7th November) in New York City and all the celebs were out in their finery to honour the women with “glamour” and style over the past year.

Jenny from the Block arrived in the impeccable gown which she paired with Jimmy Choo Shoes– a nice change from the Louboutins that everyone else has been wearing and accessorised with simple diamond Harry Winston Jewels. Newly seperated Ms Lopez won “The All Star award” for her efforts in music, TV, film fashion and beauty which she accepted and took to the stage in her show stopping gown.

The Silver/grey dress part of the Atelier Versace Fall 2011 collection is fully beaded with a embleished flower on the nape which cascades down the front of the gown.

atelier_versace_fall_2011Funnily enough Donatella Versace presented Jenny with the award so made sense that Jenny choose the gown, after all the green dress back in 2000 caught everyones attention for all the right reasons and Jenny’s stock rocketed!

I think she hit the nail on the head in this choice too- stunning elegant and perfect!

Good Job J-Lo

Another week and another red carpet film premier has been underway and this one is for the launch of “The Rum Diary” a film, I wouldn’t mind seeing in a few weeks- partly due to the films soundtrack, particularly an awesome song by Pitbull.

Anyway! Back to the Fashion.

Amber Heard, a rather unknown model and actress took to the red carpet alongside her co-star Johnny Depp as they posed for pictures here in the beautiful (rainy damp) city of London.

The very attractive star brought her statuesque phsyic onto the carpet wearing an Allessandra Rich Spring 2012 nude dress.

Posing brightly for pictures she worked the carpet in the no holds bar gown that literally shows every curve and crevice known to man.

A very simple choice of dress- and she removed the accessories that the designer had originally paired with the gown- which to be fair to her improved the look.

allessandra rich long dress 2012 spring

The dress is very straight and rather boring- but she jazzed it up with the celebrity favourite Louboutin peep toes whilst the makeup followed the dress design of high shine and pale.

The gown is certainly NOT for everyone (e.g coco) but she at least works it well and she knows she has the figure to do so.

I had a quick look through the other parts of the collection and the gown that stood out to me was the large sleeve column dress..

Dramatic sleeves OH HOW I LOVE DRAMA!

 

ALESSANDRO 2012 SPRING

Yesterday the Glamour Reel Moments movie premier took place at the Directors guild of America in West Hollywood, California. Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria arrived to her film looking rather ravishing for the showcasing.

She picked up a electric blue dress by Victoria Beckham, a popular choice recently by most celebs at the moment- earlier this week, we posted a story on the current success of her latest collection- which can be viewed here.

victoria beckham red dress eva longoriaShe dazzled the red carpet in the asymmetrical drape neck shift dress which was out of last years 2010 fall collection.

The back of the dress featured the signature black grosgrain belt and highlighted black zip- Cheryl Cole was seen in a similar exposed zip dress found here.

Eva wore her hair high in a pony with a cool quiff for some added quirk.

Her satin pumps are by Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’

The dress is awesome, I have to admit- however on Eva, I am not too keen on the black belt. I can see why it has been added as the dress appears to be rather baggy in certain areas so it does a good job to nip the dress in at the waist- but the colour is fabulous- and a great choice for a red carpet film premier.

Well Done Eva
