Ok, so not quite golden, but yellow is close enough right?! Although, its never my first port of call in a gown, these ladies made it work (yellow that is) and equally looked stunning at last night’s 74th Golden Globe awards; as they graciously strutted down the red carpet, before stopping to smile and pose!

From the top left, clockwise; Natalie Portman wears a deep pastel yellow, almost-mustard floor length (three-quarter) sleeved gown, by Prada. Her look was very simple, elegant and I want to say; quite medieval!

Next, is the stunning Scandal star, Ms Kerry Washington. Personally, I do not favour this dress. However, Washington (who just had her second baby a few months ago) looked absolutely radiant down the red carpet in a Dolce & Gabbana dress. The see-through pale-golden yellow midi floral dress, was finished with angel wing-like shoulder cuffs and what looks like a broach embellished side belt (thing).Granted, its different and not really my cup of tea per se, but Kerry never fails to impress and (as I said) made it work!

In the bottom right hand corner; Hollywood walk of fame’s latest star; Viola Davis, wore the brightest yellow of them all and blissfully smiled for the camera (and later glided to the stage) in Michael Kors. The classic Greek style, floor length, one-shoulder gown, was a tasteful and subtle approach to “glitz & glam”.

Last but not least, my favourite (dress not person); Reese Witherspoon; in a pastel yellow Atelier Versace gown! Although its quite Prom-come-bridesmaid, I really like this dress. The classy length together with the saucy side slit, and the modern take to the classic sweetheart neckline; gives off a sexy sophisticated look; and completed with some simple jewellery, its picture perfect!

It turns out yellow isn’t so bad after all and hey, for the Golden Globes, its pretty appropriate wouldn’t you say?!

Whether it be as oh so fabulous Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the city or simply herself, SJP is often the “Belle of the Ball”. Quite literally this time too, as she takes the red carpet at the New York Ballet Fall Gala. Wearing a glamorous glittery Zuhair Murad gown, Parker was most definetly Cinderella-esque last night.

The smokey grey ballgown took on a sweet-heart neckline, 3-quarter length sleeves, a dramatic train (to which flared from her waist) and an elegant front slit. Overlaid with sheer and plenty of sparkly embellishments; SJP looked stunning and certainly dazzled the crowds in her Zuhair Murad original!

Just days ago, in the city that never sleeps; Marc Jacobs showcased his Spring/Summer’16 collection at New York Fashion Week; and just last night at the Emmy Awards, Kerry Washington wore one of these Jacobs original- straight off the runway.

Made entirely from mesh and so delicately embellished, Jacobs’ silver gown was just enough Glitz and Glam for last night’s event.  Plus, Washington wore it ooh so well. It was fitted enough to show off her figure, yet not too tight (considering the material used) and lets not ignore that sexy yet sophisticated slit! Kerry certainly did the dress justice and at only 72 hours post-catwalk, she is the definition of “Off the Runway”!

Always “dressed to impress”, another one of Shona Rhimes’ leading ladies; the infamous “Olivia Pope”; looked fabulous on the red carpet. And just in time too; to remind us about Scandals’s Season 5 premier later this week! #ShondaLand

Whilst the life of a broke student means i can't buy much until next pay days (with 3 this month), who said I'm not allowed to look. And a cheeky "try on" never hurt anybody! Well that is a lie, trying clothes on, that I can't afford yet hurts me to leave them behind. On the upside, after having no intention of ever buying this dress (because I never thought blue was really my colour), I loved the sparkles too much, to not give it a chance. And for £130 who wouldn't love it!
