In the magazine, where she was shot by Alexi Hay, the model touched on her experience of the fashion world describing it as 'clique,' and there's some truth to that. To me Upton has that Kim Kardashian factor. While I'm totally for seeing more diversity in magazines, the purist in me doesn't like her new found presence in fashion magazines. And besides, the fact she counteracts every positive step by appearing in a video on Terry Richardson's blog appearing scantily clad doesn't help either. That aside, she does look pretty beautiful in the cover shoot.
Kerry Washington has always been one of my favourite red carpet goers. She always manages to look incredibly chic and fresh but recently she's been on the down low. Last night, though, she made a welcomed return to the red carpet at the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
For the occasion, she chose this floor length shimmering sequin Vivienne Westwood couture gown with a subtle drape and it works. The metallic works beautifully against her skin and he simple drop down earrings and pulled back hair finish the look off perfectly.
When Anne Hathaway unveiled her new short hair I wasn't completely convinced but this week I was completely won over. The actress looked stunning in this autumnal dress from the Fall 2012 Valentino couture collection that she wore to attend the 2012 New York City Ballet Gala. Long hair would have detracted from the detail in the dress and without doubt, the shorter style shows just how beautiful her face looks.
Jessica Chastain has found a look that really works for her. Dresses are her forte and nobody quite does easy, sophisticated styles quite like Roksanda Ilincic.
This lilac dress with a subtle drape, then, by the designer is the perfect choice for her. The actress wore the dress to attend the Broadway opening for 'If There Is I Haven't Found It' and finished the look of with a classic pair of gold earrings and nude Christian Louboutin 'Pigalle Plato' pumps.
Sarah Jessica Parker has been a friend of Valentino Garavani for a long time so it was no surprise when she turned up on the red carpet for the 2012 New York City Ballet Gala hosted by the designer.
For the occassion the actress wore a Fall 2012 Valentino couture gown under a cape. While I know I've already criticised Karolina Kurkova's Valentino cape look, for some reason this actually works. Admittedly the look isn't for everyone but SJP is one woman that can pull it off.
Olivia Palermo flew from the Burberry show straight to New York this week to attend the 2012 Brazil Foundation Gala party help at the American Museum of National History and as always, she nailed it.
Beauty wise, the reality star went for the centre parting tied back look that she's been sporting a lot recently and opted for a beautiful floral embroidered sheer bell sleeved dress from the Spring 2012 Valentino collection.
Capes shouldn't be seen on the red carpet except for on André Leon Talley (just ask Venus Williams) and sadly, that's exactly what Karolina Kurkova wore to attend the 2012 New York City Ballet Gala hosted by Valentino. The red dress from the fall 2012 Valentino couture collection looks beautiful and the colour definitely works for her skin tone. It's just that the cape that kills it.
I challenge you to remember a red carpet look worn by Shenae Grimes or at least remember one for the right reasons. Before you think I'm being too harsh, have a think and you'll see what I'm talking about.
While I don't have anything against the actress, her looks don't leave a lasting impression and this one is a case in point. Grimes wore the lace top and Style Stalker skater skirt to attend Entertainment Weekly's pre-Emmy party and sadly, it just doesn't hit the mark.
Over the past few weeks Hollywood's older women haven't been on their best form. All I need to say is Nicole Kidman and V magazine and you should know where I'm going with that one, but Sharon Stone brought it all back on a good footing yesterday.
The actress chose this black Roberto Cavalli gown to attend the amfAR gala in Milan, a style that the designer reportedly designed especially for her.The cleavage bearing cut out on the front could easily have made this look steer down the mutton dressed as lamb route but Stone pulls it off.
J. Crew is one of the few middle of the road retailers that steers clear of celebrities and that's, in part, one of the reasons I like it so much. On the odd occassion that the group does work with them, it always makes sense. Last month its sister brand, Madewell, confirmed Solange Knowles as the face of its A/W12 campaign, which is undoubtedly a match made in heaven and now J. Crew have nailed it too by working with Gwyneth Paltrow.
The actress appeared in an eight-look editorial for her site Goop last week wearing head-to-toe J.Crew and ever since then, the traffic on jcrew.com has jumped significantly. 'Eight percent of all of our traffic since we launched with Gwyneth is being driven by Goop,' a J. Crew spokeswoman told WWD. 'That's amazing.'
Am I surprised? Well no. As much as Gwynnie is known for her glamorous red carpet looks, she's also the queen of preppy staples so the partnership makes sense. 'The team here has always been fans of Gwyneth’s personal style,' J. Crew president Jenna Lyons said. 'She has a relaxed ease and a natural sexiness, Goop is a frequent online stop for me…Cool style. Cool site.' Considering how well the partnership has gone, something tells me this isn't the end of the pair working together. Clearly sales are up and since J. Crew aren't particularly fond of working with celebrities, it seems likely that now they have decided to embrace it they'll stick with one person.
