…Last night’s 73rd Golden Globes Awards saw many celebrities take the red carpet in an array of fabulous designers. The females in particular stole the show and looked amazing in their various gowns. It seems white was pretty popular and came in a handful of styles, cuts and and necklines.

Lily James and Saoirse Ronan looked oh so elegant as they glided across the red carpet in their flowy floor length gowns with nipped in high-waists. James wore Marchesa while Ronan wore Yves Saint Laurent. Also in couture Saint Laurent, Jane Fonda looked fabulous in an all white (accessories included) figure hugging long sleeved gown, finished off with some questionable ruffles. Alicia Vikander also flaunted some ruffles;  but in a much smaller degree; as they delicately embellished the neckline of her Louis Vuitton apron gown. Last but not least, and the sexiest of them all; both Eva Longoria and Taraji kept it simple and stylish in sexy-sophisticated, figure hugging floor length gowns. Taraji wore all Stella McCartney (teeny tiny Falabella bag included) with a boob-tube cut and classy cape. Whereas, Longoria wore a Georges Hobeika conservative dress, hand embellished at the hips/ neckline and finished with an elegant front slit.

Capes are certainly in this season and were seen worn by many women last night in colours beyond white. However out of the gorgeous white gowns below, half of them were accompanied by matching capes; completing each look and making the women all the more stunning! #Capes

 

From an architectural vision to a tinie-tiny little pop-up store, my degree is complete.

I never thought of myself as an architect (still don’t) but having watched enough ‘Grand Designs’ i became inspired. So when the opportunity arose at Uni to work on an individual self-guided project, I decided to put my efforts into a pop-up store design, instead an yet another range plan or garment; for the high-street fashion retailer COS.

Simple and Sophisticated, the pop-up store is a reflection of the COS brand, designed with inspirations from art, architecture and graphics.

So over the Christmas/ New years holiday, I went to the “Ball Gowns, British Glamour since 1950s” Exhibition at the V&A, but have not had time to upload anything until now due to the exams that took over my life.

“From debutantes and royalty to charity balls and red carpets, this exhibition highlighted the styles, silhouettes and colours that have been perennial favourites for many years…

The center dress above was worn by Beyonce during Obama’s first inauguration back in 2009, and i love it. It is sexy yet still very sophisticated, classy and ooh so glamourous!
