This slideshow requires JavaScript.

When I think of luxury designers, Christian Dior always comes to mind first, especially since I’m constantly reminded of the brand’s unforgettable designs worn by some of the most famous celebrities like spokes models Marion Cotillard, Charlize TheronJennifer Lawrence, as well as red carpet A-listers like model / actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, four-time Oscar-nominee Julianne Moore, & The Great Gatsby‘s Carey Mulligan.

In the latest Resort 2014 Collection, there are plenty of sleek, feminine details in the line, including nipped waistlines, pops of colorblocking, modern menswear cuts, & flowy hemlines. The hefty 58-image gallery below shares the entire collection, & some of my favorite pieces include the separates which can dress up a pair of jeans, skinny pants, or leather shorts. Also, I love the idea of jackets too, which make for perfect toppers to any vacation, office, date night, & casual look.

The Cannes Film Festival is still underway; however, I’ve been ravenously collecting a slew of glamorous day & evening looks from the event’s red carpets, including premieres / screenings, press junkets, & parties. Some of the most buzzed about films are being celebrated overseas, including The Great Gatsby, As I Lay Dying, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Bling Ring, & Inside Llewyn Davis. Jennifer Lawrence has been in out & about in several head-to-toe Dior looks. It’s also no surprise that Gatsby actress Carey Mulligan has been making headlines with a series of black & white minimalist ensembles from Vionnet, Balenciaga, Dior Haute Couture, & Chloe.

Other favorites include Nicole Kidman who is promoting Grace of Monaco, where she portrays the always enchanting Grace Kelly. The Aussie Oscar-winner has been staying loyal to her classic elegance with a touch of flair in a leather belted Calvin Klein dress, Alexander McQueen LBD, dreamy Dior Haute Couture tea-length dress, & fun printed column gown by L’Wren Scott. A star who I’ve been keeping an eye out for, especially from earlier this month at the Met Costume Institute Gala, is Rooney Mara who continues to share her androgynous sense of femininity in Vera Wang, Calvin Klein, & Giambattista Valli.

Be sure also to check out the gallery since I’ll continue to add more images to it, including looks by Ziyi Zhang, Freida Pinto, Emma Watson, Isla Fisher, Jessica Biel (especially in Marchesa), & more! Which has been your favorite look so far? Which movies are you most excited to see from the festival?

Silver Screen Style: A Visionary, New Trailer For Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby,’ Starring Leonardo DiCaprio & Carey Mulligan!


Some of you may already know that I lend my writing skills to a movie news & reviews website, Movie Buzzers, as a freelance film critic & news reporter. This has its benefits since I love to examine fashion in films & one of the most anticipated movies of 2013 is certainly Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, & Elizabeth Debicki.

Not only does the movie celebrate the Jazz Age classic tale, originally written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald, but it’s Luhrmann’s imagination that brings new life to the 3-D film. Also, costume designer Catherine Martin (Moulin Rouge, Australia) collaborated with Miuccia Prada, whose accomplishments include Prada & Miu Miu, for an impeccable vision for men’s & women’s fashion for the era. You can be certain that luxurious lace details, flapper-inspired hemlines, & art deco accessories will make a comeback once the film premieres on May 10th.

Take a look at the latest trailer, which features an in-depth look at Gatsby’s romance with Daisy, & the love triangle that ensues when Daisy’s husband Tom sees his wife swept away by the millionaire. Are you excited about the premiere of this film? Do you like the casting decisions? What do you think about the fashions?

It is my esteemed pleasure to bring you a first look at all the glamour from last night’s beyond amazing 2012 Met Costume Institute Gala, which is honoring the works of Miuccia Prada & Elsa Schiarparelli.  There’s just so much to look at & the images keep surfacing.  My favorites include Scarlett Johansson, Dianna Agron, Leighton Meester & Carey Mulligan.  Of course, there were some major fashion risk-takers like Kirsten Dunst, Beyonce, Chloe Sevigny, & Mary-Kate Olsen.  However, sometimes when there’s such a prestigious night that celebrates fashion, it’s not always about who got it right & who got it wrong- it’s about embracing the possibilities of expressing your style.  Take a look at the slideshow & feel free to click through the gallery & find your favorites from the night.
