The Oscars 2013…. According to Me

26 02 2013

And the Oscar goes to….

Hollywood Glamour : Jessica Chastain

Jessica was first to arrive and really got the red carpet going in this Armani Prive dress. She looks simply stunning. Her hair and make up team have nailed this look on her – so perfect.

Best ‘Pouff’: Amy Adams

Just look at that train – she had to sit in the front row to accommodate the dress! She looked gorgeous in Oscar De La Renta – is her hair darker? I love it!

Best Colour: Kerry Washington

I simply adore this Miu Miu number – the coral / red tones and the embroidered bust are simply divine! And, it was good to see some colour pop on the carpet – she certainly stood out!

Best Costume Change : Amanda Seyfried

She quickly slipped out of her gorge Alexander McQueen into her (not-so-gorge…) Givenchy number for her performance. And rumour has it, she stayed in it because the McQueen beauty was too uncomfortable!


Best After-Party Dress: Kate Bosworth


You can always count on Kate for a party look – and this Giambattista Valli number is a winner. I’d love to know how she partied inside the Vanity Fair after party. I am convinced we could be besties!

And the Leading Lady: Jennifer Lawrence

Did you think I would leave her out??! The girl is the BOMB! And the dress keeps growing on me. We knew it would be Dior Couture, right?! I’m also a big fan of the Calvin Klein Collection dress she changed into for the after party.

Ladies in Supporting Roles: Anne Hathaway and Zoe Saldana

What do you think of my Oscar Winners?



Coachella Babes!

18 04 2011

I love festivals! And I love Coachella! Even though I’ve never been of course…. Sad face. But, I am going to go sometime. And sometime soon. The style stakes at Coachella are unreal. The ladies really go all out with their personal style, and why not. They certainly get the weather! Unlike us, who dredge through the mud and rain in wellies and hotpants! All in the name of fashion….

Have chosen a few favourite looks from Coachella. Am still looking for more so check back for an update.

Wardrobe I want – Kate Bosworth

9 02 2011

Wow, is Kate rocking the fashion world these days or what! The girl is everywhere – every fashion site, every gossip column and every blog. And, I’m afraid, I just can’t keep her off mine either! I am just loving her style – so effortlessy cool during the day, and bang on trend at night! The girl has been busy working straight-from-the-catwalk looks. And she makes me miss blonde hair! I would genuinely kill for some of these looks – the ankle boots, knits and mesh dresses especially.

I need to learn how to make clothes!


Who wears short shorts!

30 01 2011

As part of my shopping plan for the next few weeks, I went to some boutiques yesterday to see what’s on offer dress wise. And typically, I didn’t find a dress but found a whole new range of shorts that I just have to own! As it stands, I’m a big fan of shorts. I simply adore my leather shorts and denim everyday shorts, and just the summer gone I was sporting a rather short lace pair that were such a steal found in A-Wear and an H&M Garden Party beige pair. Whether it’s with bare legs or tights, you are bound to see me wearing these shorts every so often. I became all to familiar with the denim short paired with knitwear look this Winter!

But yesterday? Yesterday was heavenly. For I am now in love with pastel and nude shorts! What sparked my new-found love, was a particular pair of tangerine shorts I spotted in the lovely boutique, Trés Chic, in Malahide. Unfortunately, they were a bit out of my price range at the moment so they stayed where they were. Which will inevitably lead to a mad search on the web and in the shops, till a pair have landed securely in my wardrobe. 🙂

The celebs are mad for the Shorts Trend too as my research has shown me! Here are some pics of what im after….


Kate Bosworth


Whitney Port


ASOS Shorts


River Island Shorts

Topshop Paperbag Shorts


Knit Shorts - that have been all over various blogs!
