Cannes 2015 : Splashes and Ripples on Red Carpet

Posted on Updated on

Untitled-1Primarily a film festival, and it should be respected as such, Cannes in the past few years has notoriously become one of the highlight in the annual calendar due to its glitzy red carpet. Hwever, Cannes this time around was rather a less dramatic affair…. what is with red carpet events this year… however regular fashionistas gave us moments that were definitely worth watching what they would wear next on the red carpet. From Sonam Kapoor to Julianne Moore… even Katrina Kaif made her debut at the red carpet at this edition of Cannes. There were some fun brilliant moments and some missteps but our fashionistas did their best and rocked every thing they donned…. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted on Updated on

Dressed to the nines for the Fashion Oscars, BFAs were held at London Coliseum. While there were official winners to the categories, the Red carpet had its own share of triumphs

EMMA WATSON
The style award barely ever missteps the red carpet and this was no exception. The style award winner showed how its done and why did she win that award in a white wide legged Misha Nonoo jumpsuit and stunning black Dior jacket with Christian Louboutin shoes and a quirky printed Anya Hindmarch clutch. Keeping it chic she finished it off with side swept hair and red lips for that perfect contrast in a monochromatic look.

CARA DELEVINGNE
The fierce model in a side swept hair and some smokin’ hot makeup was picture perfect in the sequined Burberry with thigh high slit. The gown with its black panels added the perfect contrast and the model of the year pulled it with aplomb. While she changed (read heated) things up for after party, even on red carpet the model’s fierce personality shone through the glam evening wear.

ANNA KENDRICK
In a blush pink Victoria beckham dress, Anna Kendrick picked the perfect shade of metallic Christian Louboutin heels and clutch to compliment the tone of her dress. The peach perfect actress nailed the look like a pro and  hit it out the ball park as well as any model but with a sophisticated twang. Finishing it off with a pulled back hair was a great move to show off her De Beers studs that let the blush number do all the talking without hogging the limelight

ALEXA CHUNG
The quirky model always tend to bring her A game on the red carpet and Miss Chung surely did not disappoint in her silver Emilia Wickstead number. It’s all about details for this one, the tailored look, cinched waist, the collar all were present. While she accessorized with Paul Chew shoes, it was her Takeout container Charlotte Olympia clutch that provided the perfect blue quirk accent to that silver and was probably one of the most fun details and highlights of the night

KENDALL JENNER
The new face of the major makeup Line, Kendall has been in spotlight for more reasons than one. However for the Fashion night, the model strode in like a winner with straight hair and a strapless monochrome jumpsuit number by Emilio Pucci. The fun black back and white front was another one of the night’s monochrome look that was rounded off with a pop of red. She completed her look with a black clutch but it was the simple yet efficient mesh translucent heels that made her outfit a complete winner (the perfect footwear choice)

CHARLOTTE GAINSBOROUGH
Charlotte Gainsborough did everything right what Ather Hafeez for Sana Safinaz did not during its presentation. In head-to-toe in LV SS’15, the actress sported a sequined mini dress with front zipper detail. Downplaying that heavy dazzle, she paired it up with the cropped leather motorcycle jacket and patent ankle booties, styling off the glam biker look perfectly. Though  couple of edgy accessories wouldn’t have hurt, but just a minor gripe one can let go.

ASHLEY MADKWE
The Revenge actress surprisingly pulled an ivory tailored suit to perfection. Sporting the banana republic suit with a plunging neckline, the actress strutted her stuff like a pro, with the satin jacket a a cape. The perfect length of the trousers wins it for me (its one of the most important things). Kudos for keeping the other details simple and finishing the look with the dark lip color. Perfect for the winter night

TOM FORD
The man is epitome of being Sharply dressed…everytime.. do I even need to say he nails it?. The shawl satin lapels with a long scarf positioned perfectly with the perfect length, Ford attended BFAs in a sharp suit.

HARRY STYLES
Picking up LV veritcal striped suit for the event, Harry Styles dressed event and age appropriate and pretty much nailed it. The double breasted blazer, the boots and the buttoned down shirt sans the tie, the mod look suits him to a T. Its a look that is hippie, young and formal all together.

GARETH PUGH and CARSON MCCOLL
The couple made one of its together appearances on the red carpet of BFAs in their own statement styles. While it was Gareth’s boots that I loved coz it just complimented designer’s sass , it was his partner Mccoll’s kimono inspired quilted leather jacket that caught my attention. The jacket was unusual yet perfect for a fall red carpet outing such as this.

JEREMY IRVINE
The actor put a spin on the conventional suit by combining multiple pieces from Burberry steering the look away from the usual look. Though the look had a relaxed vibe about it, with the oversized blazer over the checked blazer (its winter up there can you blame the guy), the look was sharp and made for a welcome change from the usual blues and black suits. The mixup was perfectly balanced with a charcoal shirt and tie paired with black trouser with that brown jacket.

LEWIS HAMILTON 
In a  complimenting outfit with his girlfriend, race driver Lewis Hamilton opted for a grey suit, accenting it off with burgundy details. Looking dapper with a tie and pocket square, the Formula 1 star’s accessories tied in with the former Pussycat Doll’s deep red lipstick and intricate detailing on her gown. Good move on keeping the shoes in sync with the accessories.

Tinie-Tempah paul smith and jimmy choos
TINIE TEMPAH
The English rapper hardly looked like his hippie self on the red carpet at the BFAs. The gentleman in question sported a plum Paul Smith suit that was a perfect winter color and an unusual choice for red carpet, but am always up for someone having fun with fashion and taking it up a notch. He finished off the look with black Jimmy Choos, rounding off the look just right

Henry-Holland-Vogue-2Dec14-pr_b_592x888
HENRY HOLLAND
With his famous sky high quiff, the fun designer, as expected, put his fun twist to a formal event. Textured tweed jacket, black trouser a white shirt, the designer had to pull it altogether with that olive and blue fun blazer that pops the whole look to another level. The designer, who is never afraid of color, knows his sense of balance and pulls off his choices with aplomb. Trust Mr. Holland to bring a lil’ more fun to the party.
