Heavenly 7: Oscars dresses

So we’re a little behind, but for those who can’t get enough of Hollywood glamour, here’s our Oscars edit and it includes some dresses that the critics panned. Oh well.  P.S. We missed Kristen Stewart and Maggie Gyllenhaal 😦

Which is your fav frock?

Sophisticated but still cute: Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli

Felicity Jones looks fierce in Johanna Johnson

Super Gwyneth in a cape! By Tom Ford - oh yes.

Kate Bosworth in what we think might be Marchesa?

A tricky dress by Louis Vuitton. Some hated it but we salute you Michelle Williams

The pose to strike next time. Pose aside, Angelina OWNS this Versace classic

My absolute favourite. Rooney Mara rocks Givenchy

LFW day2/3: Stella McCartney vs Mulberry

Both shows were packed with celebs, drama and were one of LFW’s hottest tickets so how did Stella’s starry dinner compare with Mulberry’s magical woodland?

Mulberry: yetis + monsters!

Halloween came early at Mulberry as monsters, yetis and Where The Wild Things Are inspired outfits were de rigour…as well as some elegant gowns and sensational printed parkers – my new lust-have.

You’ll be wearing furry gilets and jackets belted at the waist with thick woolly items and sleek lady-like skirts teamed with heeled hiking boots (dig them out from Winter ’10). Tangerine and burnt tones with brown and black zigzags, mixed textures and quilting made up the outdoorsy winter-wear, while star prints and subtle multicoloured metallics will make winter sparkle in due time.

We also glimpsed the new Del Rey bag, aptly carried by Lana in ostrich white.

Guest list: Laura Carmichael and Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey) sat alongside Michelle Williams, Elizabeth Olsen, Lana Del Rey, Pixie Geldof, Azealia Banks, Olivia Palermo, Pixie Lott, Anna Wintour…impressive!

Super frow!

Mulberry Del Rey - love it?

Love this starry metallic look

A hybrid look

Delicate evening wear

Cute monster chocs!

Stella: dinner for hundreds

According to Vogue the celebs sat down to a tasty veggie dinner chez Stella while models wafted around, then at 11pm a famous magician entertained the crowd by apparently hypnotising Alexa Chung before balancing her on three swords. And it got weirder…a model started screaming, waiters dropped their trays and a flash mob ensued with models carried in on chairs. To hell with a catwalk!

Guest list: Rihanna, Kate Moss, Yasmin Le Bon, Minnie Driver, Anna Wintour, Bill Nighy, Alison Mosshart, Alexa Chung, Mario Testino and many more.

After all the drama, guests finally got to see a capsule collection of evening wear complete with amazing costume jewellery before the big reveal in Paris next week. And there’s no pics yet!

Best dressed: The Baftas vs The Grammys

Awards, celebs blah blah blah. Let’s just look at the dresses shall we?

Top 5 BAFTA beauties:

Fearne Cotton dresses for Valentine's Day early?! We like her glam Moschino number

I am totally in love with Laura Bailey's crazy Chanel dress

Meryl Streep is the epitome of glamour in Vivienne Westwood

Michelle Williams wears H&M couture!

Tilda Swinton wows in minimalist Celine

On the other side of the Atlantic The Grammys were in full flow. We acknowledge there were some truly bonkers outfits.  On the whole the others were very glam or simply very small! Here’s out top 3…maybe.

Rihanna looks incredible in Giorgio Armani

Taylor Swift is the golden girl in Zuhair Murad

The lady of the moment - Adele

Rainclouds + Ruffles: Michelle Williams + Rooney Mara

We’re bracing ourselves for an onslaught of sequins, feathers and ball gowns…it’s almost Oscars and Baftas time after all. So we were pleased as punch to see Michelle Williams and Rooney Mara looking tres chic in a non glitterball way for the Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon at The Beverly Hilton hotel.

It appears that Michelle is becoming a bit it a Victoria Beckham devotee and is that more Lanvin that Rooney is rocking? We love them both.

Michelle looks super cute in a Victoria Beckham raindrops dress

And at a Bafta do. I love this dress.

Rooney Mara effortlessly chic in sharp tailoring

P.S. I kinda want some Oscars carpet!

Golden Globes: Celebrity rainbow

In a bid to do something a little different, here is a red-carpet rainbow from last night’s Golden Globes. Which dress is your favourite? P.S. there’s more amazing looks from the pre-parties here.

Dianna Agron in Giles

OMG there were no orange dresses that we liked – did Hollywood not get the memo about SS12 + ‘Tangerine Tango’?!

A simple but striking dress for presenter Paula Patton.We were surprised not many people wore yellow as was so big on the SS12 catwalk!

Zooey Deschanel plumps for quirky green beads

Michelle Williams looks beautiful in Jason Wu

Jessica Alba sparkles in delicate Gucci

OK it's not violet, but we love Natalie Portman's Lanvin gown.

Lady Gaga vs Marilyn Monroe

Lady Gaga vs Marilyn Monroe

We have to give props to Lady Gaga and her fashion feats of the last year. She truly is a trend chameleon. From tottering in Noritaka Tatehana heel-less platforms and wearing sky-high beehives to that meat-dress, Gaga has also tried on  Audrey Hepburn, Cousin IT and arguably Madonna’s styles…and now she’s channelling Marilyn Monroe.

Of course Gaga isn’t the only celeb who has dressed up as Marilyn of late as Michelle Williams is currently starring in film, My Week with Marilyn.

Gaga is Marilyn

Michelle Williams for Vogue

Scarlett definitely borrows a little Marilyn magic for this Dolce ad

Cover girl battle: Gisele Bundchen vs Michelle Williams

Two amazing covers and stunning women- which do you prefer…sassy or sweet?

Michelle Williams looks super cute on the cover of Elle’s December issue in a Prada Resort dress.

Absolutely love this lips print.

Meanwhile, super model Gisele Bundchen looks incredible in sexy skin-tight rainbow leggings. Editorial pics below.

Only a super model could pull these leggings off!

Neon colour blocking at its best

Love the chunky accessories

Hollywood Film Gala: 3 best dressed celebs

Celebrity A-listers were out in force for the Hollywood Film Gala dressed in their finery for the red carpet (unlike Megan Fox) so without further ado here are our 3 favourites: Carey Muligan, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Michelle Williams.

Carey Mulligan sparkles in a Bottega Veneta dress + Ferragamo heels.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley dazzles in detailed Emilio Pucci

Michelle Williams in an eye-catching Nina Ricci gown

Celebrity trend: Wear S/S12 NOW!

…No we don’t mean wearing flip flops in winter (but shorts are fine!)

We were glued to the S/S12 fashion weeks and got incredibly excited at the prospect of floral prints, pretty pastels, crisp white dresses, seaside and underwater-inspired collections and so much more…but then got back to the business of dressing for this season.

But now so on planet celebrity where it counts to be ‘first’ (and Hollywood is very probably quite a lot hotter than London!)

We got so excited when we spotted Sienna Miller wearing Matthew Williamson just a couple of weeks after London Fashion Week but The Telegraph has surpassed us by spotting plenty more famous folks wearing next season’s collections…Burberry, Jil Sander, Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Calvin Klein, Mary Katrantzou and Christian Dior.

Get Miu Miu style for £40

We LOVE Miu Miu, especially the brand’s obsession with bird prints and so it was no surprise we fell in love with its super wearable and flattering midi dresses – which would flatter pretty much any body shape and are especially handy for pear shapes.

The good news is that ASOS has done some wonderfully Miu Miu-inspired midi dresses of its own and they look pretty similar to the real McCoy. Voila – instant Autumnal style!

As you can see Mango does a pretty nifty copy print-wise too

SO useful for work and play - ASOS midi dress in 40s print £40 (how apt!)

Michelle Williams soars up the style charts in this cute Miu Miu swallow print dress at the Met Gala
