Emma Watson took on a major 90′s trend this week at the premier of her new film Perks of Being a Wallflower in London – a LBD paired with pants. Love it or hate, this look is slowly making its way back in style! Designers like Lanvin, Dries van Noten and Acne have already incorporated this look in their collections, and was a big hit this season as well. Seeing as how Emma is usually one of the firsts to embrace top trends, it’s not really that surprising that she’s ahead of the game. And this Christian Dior Couture number is the perfect fit for her!

The Toronto International Film Festival may be focused on the films being premiered, but the red carpet scene is the real talk of the city. Seeing as how the weather is in between seasonal change, celebrities have a lot more to work with as they pick their dazzling outfits for the events. While pastels and nudes were the top picks this year, many played around with prints and bold colours like emerald green and red. Here are some of the best dressed celebrities, in my opinion, at TIFF 2012.
Blake Lively unleashed sweet-ever-lovin’-hotness at the L.A. premiere of her new movie Savages in a Zuhair Murad gown. I am in love with the intricate design and beading. It’s retro-chic gorgeous especially paired with Blake’s Veronica Lake waves. This is how you do a red carpet without a stylist. She is famously known for picking out her own clothes and proves she knows her style stuff!
In a twist to the fairytale, the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) ordered to take Snow White (Kristen Stewart) into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the evil queen (Charlize Theron). And of course, he falls in love with her, but the romantic element is very much absent in the film.
The one thing I dislike about this film is that it felt like a first chapter rather than a full story which is a frustrating approach to a fairytale. The Huntsman declares his love for Snow White but we never find out if she loves him back. Or if she’d rather be with Prince William (Sam Claflin).
The acting was uneven.
Kristen Stewart plays Snow White. Her performance was awkward as always. No expressions and her british accent was inconsistent which really frustrated me.
When you have one actress/actor who delivers the performance of his/her character with such duende, it overshadows the rest of the cast members, which I felt happened with this film. Theron’s performance really blew everyone out of the picture.
The script of the film may be weak, but movie is visually gorgeous and refreshingly imaginative. From the stunning costumes of multi-Oscar-winner Colleen Atwood to the set design and cinematography, it is simply an impressive piece of visual storytelling.
Audrey Tautou stars as the legendary fashion designer Coco Chanel in the Anne Fontaine directed film, Coco Avant Chanel; an excellent biopic that explores the orphan’s storied ascension to fashion stardom.
This is a story of Gabrielle ‘Coco” Chanel who begins her life as a headstrong orphan and through an extraordinary journey becomes the legendary couturier who embodied the modern women and became a timeless symbol of success, freedom and style.
A single actor’s screen presence can go a long way to redeeming an average film. Audrey Tautou’s star turn as the legendary fashion designer proves the point eloquently. Her Coco is a boyish wisp of a creature, looking great in mannish clothes that contrast shockingly with the big flowery hats and corseted finery of her age. The film features dresses from the Chanel collection, of course and The House of Chanel art director Karl Lagerfeld also steps on board to supervise the creation of marvellous accessories and costumes. I am obsessed with everything ‘Coco’ wore in the film. Effortless style and minimalism at its finest.

The 65th Cannes Film Festival is one of the year’s hottest events and it has the guest list to prove it. The stars arrived in gorgeous gowns with long trails and fun summer looks. Here are some of the stunners who graced the red carpet and parties this year.
Kristen Stewart looks stunning in this bright crimson Reem Acra crepe gown she wore to the Cosmopolis premiere. Love the very deep V neckline and sheer lace back. Very age appropriate.
Not exactly sure what Lana Del Rey was doing at the festival, but she looks stunning in this Alberta Ferretti gown. The cobweb neckline is rather unique and adds a little extra something to her simple look.
Madagascar 3 voice talent Jessica Chastain paired Chopard jewelry with her stunning Giorgio Armani couture gown. Simple and elegant.
I have no words for Nicole Kidman’s backless, rose-pink Grecian style Lanvin gown. Absolutely beautiful.
Finally, some summer looks! Sarah Gadan’s Jason Wu frock is perfect for this spring event. Love the embedded lace design.
Kristen Stewart’s wardrobe choice this year has been very trendy. Her Balenciaga pants are killer. As for Kristen Dunst, I am in love with her Dolce & Gabbana butter cream wedding cake dress. The flora lace is perfect for spring season. Groundbreaking, huh?
There’s just something about old Hollywood that intrigues me. Well, black and white films anyway. Ever wonder what the colour in those films actually are? What the colour of her dress is? Or the colour of the bouquet of roses he sent for her?
Just a thought.
