Obviously, 2014 has been one stylish year, especially when you consider the multitude of red carpet appearances, street style looks, cocktail frocks, & day-to-day ensembles that our favorite Style Darlings have sported. A number of breakout stars have made the best dressed gallery. It’s really incomplete since there are still so many gorgeous looks worth talking about that have made this calendar year a little bit more stylish.
Enjoy the gallery & slideshow, featuring a thorough & vast collection of images to inspire an even more fashionable 2015. Happy Styling!
It’s been a crazy year for my magazine collection & I’m guilty of maintaining a pretty high stack of fashionable pages. However, it’s nearly the end of August & the mountain is getting higher, especially since there are so many amazing September issues hitting stands & arriving in mailboxes all over the country. I’ve included a whopping 21 covers in this post, also featuring links to the coordinating articles / cover shoot details online.
For those of you who have been focusing on the red carpets of the major awards shows, there’s one carpet that I haven’t featured in the last week & that’s the 2013 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala. I didn’t know what it was, but could tell that the star-studded red carpet was fabulous, so I went ahead & learned that the gala is run by a non-profit organization which encourages working artists of the stage, screen, & so forth to dedicate their time to helping children who are battling mental conditions.
Go figure! With that, I’m happy to share the event’s red carpet, including favorites like Camilla Belle, in a dramatic Carolina Herrera gown, as well as a very pregnant Busy Phillipps in a flapper-inspired Alberta Ferretti dressm, Hart of Dixie star Rachel Bilson in an animal-print Valentino design, & Anna Kendrick‘s sweet emerald Dior party look.
Amber Heard has been making headlines, especially after her role in last year’s The Rum Diary, opposite Johnny Depp, who is said to be Amber’s beau. The actress, whose credits include Zombieland & Pineapple Express, is returning as a model for Guess, for their latest fragrance ads for Guess Girl. In a recent article on FashionEtc, the scent is described as “With top notes of raspberry nectar, melon and bergamot mist, and a drydown of Australian sandalwood and Madagascar vanilla, the fruity floral scent is a distinct departure from the brand’s most recent perfume, Seductive, aimed toward women in their later 20’s.“
Clad in a pink sequin mini under a Marilyn Monroe-inspired button down shirt that’s tied at the waist, the ad seems to focus on the voluptuous beauties of Old Hollywood & Amber is a perfect match, looking to be the next Sharon Stone with every red carpet appearance. Guess Girl won’t be available as a stocking stuffer since it will make its debut in February, but you can count on the three sizes to be budget-friendly, going for 1 oz. for $40, 1.7 oz. for $52, & 3.4 oz. for $62, as well as a 6.7-oz. body cream for $28 at Guess.com.
I don’t normally focus on men’s style, but when we’re talking about Johnny Depp, jaws must drop. With his recent role in The Rum Diary, based on the novel by the late Hunter S. Thompson, I’m loving the styling of costumes & just how gorgeous everyone looks, including the film’s leading lady, Amber Heard. Take a look at the images below, along with the film’s trailer to get a glimpse at live action gonzo journalism. Set against the backdrop of late 1950s Puerto Rico, Johnny & Amber are joined by Aaron Eckhart & Giovanni Ribisi in the autobiographical look at Thompson’s journey finding his voice as a writer.
Also, I included a very entertaining video clip of Johnny Depp on Late Show with David Letterman, where the three-time Academy Award nominee very affectionately talks about his personal relationship with Thompson & their musings over the unpublished version of The Rum Diary, which is in theaters now. Of course, this isn’t an entirely style-related post, but I was excited about it, so it was worth sharing. Happy Styling!
