What I'm wearing...

So, I've decided that as well as talking about everybody else's style, I'm also going to start talking about my style too. I think it's always interesting to document the clothes you have and what you wear on a daily basis. Sometimes you can even be quite surprised by the outcome.
Therefore, I'm going to incorporate my clothing into my blog as well as those I see around me...
Today I'm wearing
Tee: Jack Wills
Shorts: Vintage Levis
Belt: Asos
Shoes: Carvela at Kurt Geiger

Oh, Olivia!

How does Olivia Palermo always manage to look so damn good? It always baffles me how she manages to mix eccentricity with sophistication into all of her outfits... And she always, and I mean Always, manages to look utterly fabulous! Olivia is definitely one of my style inspirations, no-one dresses quite like her...

Rachel McAdams at Cannes.

The Cannes Film Festival is perhaps one of the most glamourous, most sophisticated events in the Fashion Calender and this year is no exception. For the 64th year running, a vast array of celebrities showed up to promote their films and generally look utterly fabulous! This year, one actress has specifically caught my eye. Rachel McAdams has stepped out in some truly wonderful, show stopping attire and has proved herself to be a complete fashion darling. Always dressed for the occasion and wearing outfits that are perfectly flattering each dress is more marvelous than the next.

Wearing Maxime Simoens this Little White Dress could have been disastrously boring. But, with its cinched in waist and ornate flower detailing around the shoulders and hips the dress has a structured appeal whilst still maintaining an element of girlish femininity.   
In Monique Lhullier, this is my favourite outfit that graced the red carpet at this years Cannes. I love that Rachel is working one of this seasons biggest trends, nude. She pulls it off with pure grace, something that could be difficult to do when your skin tone is practically the same colour as your outfit. The sparkling corset is the perfect match to Rachel's soft, tailored trousers and shows off her very enviable figure. It's always refreshing to see tailored alternatives to ball gowns on the red carpet. 
 Finally, Rachel wears a revealing red lace Marchesa dress. What I like most about this dress is the train. So often, women wear dresses with enormous pouffy trains made from layer upon layer of fabric. I think so often it can look aged and dated. However, this train is exquisitely delicate and dainty and is the perfect match for Rachel's soft skin tone and old Hollywood waves.

The Met Ball

Last night was the fabulous event that is The Met Ball. It's one of the biggest events in the social calender and this years occasion paid tribute to the late Alexander McQueen. There was an array of magnificent dresses to be seen and below I have picked my four favourite looks.
Diane Kruger in Jason Wu. I love Diane and to me, she never puts a fashion foot wrong. I love her classic elegance and sophisticated style.

 Miranda Kerr in Marchesa looked like she had just stepped out of a fairytale. The perfect mix of girlish fun and grown up glamour; a brave woman to wear a piece from a collection that had models fainting at New York Fashion Week.
 Salma Hayek looked timeless and womanly as she paid tribute to Alexander McQueen.
 Finally, Sarah Jessica Parker sparkled in Alexander McQueen.
