‘The Rum Diary’ Paris Premiere: Amber Heard in Stella McCartney

Amber Heard turned many heads at the Paris Premiere of her new film ‘The Rum Diary’…..

All I keep thinking when I see Amber is “oh my…oh my…oh my…I love you.”

She has been looking so freaking amazing at every.single.event I’ve seen her at recently.   Seriously.  She is beyond stunning.  I think I’m in love….

On this particular occasion Amber opted for a simple, yet fabulous, backless navy blue floor length long-sleeved dress by Stella McCartney.   With minimal jewelry and a chic up-do, Amber looks perfect.  Another spot-on look for her.  As I said before….this girl really knows how to wear a dress.  Love it!

What do you think?  Yay or nay?

Ashley Greene in Givenchy

Twilight lovely Ashley Greene was in Paris for the premiere of ‘Breaking Dawn Part 1′:

 

Ashley wore a navy blue peplum dress from the Givenchy Resort 2012 Collection.  Her accessories include a necklace, clutch and heels also by Givenchy.  I think this dress is gorgeous, but I hate the necklace paired with it.  It ruins this whole look.  The dress is rather busy in the front, and the necklace only adds confusion.  I do like her hair and makeup, though. 

So the verdict is this:  Great dress.  So-so necklace.  The two do not belong together, though.  This dress needs to stand alone.

What do you think?   Do you like this Givenchy dress and necklace together?

My street style: French Connection

This past weekend Darth and I did our own amateur photo shoot!  I picked out outfits using existing items in my closet, and because I don’t know any models (*sadface*) I acted as the model!  And it was acutally kind of fun!  I mostly wanted to test my skills as a stylist, and see what I could come up with using my entire wardrobe.  I put together tons of outfits, but we only ended up taking pictures of a few of them….as we both grew tired and irritable after a couple of hours!  Go figure…

So, here is the first outfit I put together: 

Outfit Details:

  • Denim dress- French Connection
  • fuchsia tights- Target
  • Grey suede platform pumps- Gucci
  • Floral print, ruffled handbag- Street vendor in Paris
  • Rose-gold watch- Michael Kors

 

Soooo, what do you guys think?  Love it?  Hate it?  (I know my hubby absolutely loathes the fuchsia tights!)

Hope everyone has a great Monday!  :)

Olivia Palermo in Christian Dior

Olivia Palermo attended the Christian Dior show in Paris during Fashion Week wearing…what else…Christian Dior!

 

Olivia was just one of the many celebs to attend the Christian Dior Spring 2012 show at Musee Rodin (*sigh*) and she did so wearing a sheer black lace Christian Dior dress.   While I don’t love the dress, I don’t hate it, either.  If you are going to wear a dress like this, then Paris Fashion Week is your best bet.  It is her accessories that are really bothering me.  I don’t like ‘em!  At least not all together and certainly not with this dress!  The earrings and the bracelet are way too big.  Period.  Too big and chunky.  And the red Dior handbag is amazing-just not appropriately paired with such a dainty dress.  And then we have her shoes.  They appear to be some sort of ankle bootie- almost “biker babe” style.  And they too are great.  But not with everything else she is wearing.  This Christian Dior dress is dainty and lightweight and super girly, IMO.  Her accessories are each great in their own way, but they are all wrong for this dress.  All wrong! 

Tisk, tisk Olivia!  You should definitely know better!  You are a fashionista, after all.  Or are you???

What do you guys think?  Love it?  Loathe it?  Somewhere in the middle?

Label Lust: Elie Saab Spring 2012

I have always been a fan of Elie Saab.  His designs are simply stunning!  His Spring 2012 Collection closed fashion week….with a bang!  The collection includes tons of color and sparkle and is all glamour!  But it also features lots of beige and lace, too!  I am in love!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a beautiful collection!   If only I could’ve been there to see it in person! ;)   Each and every piece in this Spring 2012 line I would wear!  There is not one dress, skirt, pantsuit or blouse that I didn’t like.  I love how everything is super-feminine with lots of flowing fabric, lace and sparkle.  Really lovely.

 

Happy Thursday!
