Rosie Huntington stunned everyone in a red Antonio Berardi Suit. The pants with its unusual skin colored patch and the illusion of thigh high boots surely made for an interesting viewing on the red carpet. With slick back hair and the red lips, Ms. Huntington totally owned the fierce look and look sexy and one of the best ones on the red carpet that night. She kept the accessories to a minimum and finished off the look with pointed shoes.
The first thing when I saw this dress by Emilia Wickstead, the first thing that popped into my mind was Aarti Vijay Gupta and her showing at LFW this season. A little digging brought up that both the ladies showed their collections within a month of each other’s viewing but the eerie similiarities were hard to ignore. From the use of pianos to the keys. Having said all of that, Poppy Delevingne looked cute in the dress. A minor gripe..wish here hair were better and than that fierce parting.
One of my favorite designer, Jonathan Saunders cut a formal picture in a perfectly tailored suit that fit him like a glove. A subtle pink tie adds the perfect oomph to the whole look which though seems safe but is perfect for an award ceremony. People underestimate the power of a well tailored suit. Nothing suits a man better than a well cut and fitted suit and that is what we get from this gentleman nailing the look hands down.
A collection who’s piece I was waiting to see sashay down the Red Carpet, Christopher Kane’s this collection was simple one of the best. Loved the lattice work with the floral motif and how this whole dress comes together. With just the red lips for that pop, Jade Parfitt lets the dress do all the talking and one which it does rather remarkably. A head turner, the dress is a brilliantly done textured lace fabric with a slip. She rounded off the look with black accessories, kitten heels (though i would have preferred stilettos) and black clutch.
Henry Holland has been on my radar since the past few season and I wonder why did I not see him more often at red carpet. However he cuts a dynamic picture on the red carpet in that self printed suit with a bowtie that perfectly compliments grounds his spiked up hair for a formal look. Sort of a twist on the classic black suit..he finished it off with black laceups.
Daisy Lowe was a pretty sight in the black on black embroidered custom made Erdem gown. Pairing it up with a Mulberry clutch, she kept the look simple by tying up her hair and letting that fringe be for a cutesy look. That pop of red via nails was just enough to offset the whole look and tie it all together.
Ever since Florence Welch’s green outing at the red carpet, I was waiting for another green one but was pretty much disappointed at Cannes. However on Daisy Bevan, Burberry nails that color bang on in a dress that accentuates her body form in the right places. ( I got something made in the same color just finding an occassion to wear it). The structured off shoulder dress had some interesting fabric detailing on the front, however those chunky white shoes didn’t cut it for me.
The Womenswear designer for the night, Christopher Kane, kept it casual for the night, however it was his shoes that caught my attention. The studded oxfords immediately went up to my lust list of must buys. The part studded shoes added that subtle bling to the whole look.
Usually I am not a fan if someone is wearing just one label head-to-toe but with Stella Tennant in Alexander Mcqueen, I have no complaints. The side stripe pants with the zipper add a certain grunge to the whole look. The blazer with the frilled belt co-ordinates well with the whole look. Kudos to her for not going OTT and keeping the look keen, accessorizing only via multiple necklaces and clutch
Portia Freeman (right) in a Temperly London gown grabbed eyeballs for all the right reasons. The plungin neckline with the studded mesh detail and a thigh high slit (Angelina moment again!!) was chic and minimalistic. Pairing up with a Jimmy Choo clutch, and smoky eyes, she pretty much hits run home with old-world-hollywood-glamour-meets-edgy look
