Best Dressed of the Week: Mila Kunis

My choice for best dressed of the week this week is going to Mila Kunis at the Moscow premiere of her latest title Friends with Benefits.

The actress wore an Elie Saab couture dress from the 2011 collection.

The dress has a ballerina style about it and the sequins make it sparkle beautifully. The low necklace is hidden by a mesh panel making the look all the more delicate and lady like.

She paired the gorgeous dress with some Elie Saab heels again in white, and went for a brown smokey eye. The hair bands and the loose, wavy hair finish off the look perfectly.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2011 RTW

I recently saw a snippet of this collection from Love Maegan and like the magpie that I am it certainly got my attention!

Taking inspiration from 80s slightly kitsch, punk and rock and roll influencers like David Bowie and Adam Ant, the collection fused retro with modern to create a celestial filled extravaganza!

Mainly sticking to a muted black, white and grey colour palette pops of colour came through the accessories which were quite frankly, amazing!


Zebra print, tiger prints and leopard prints, neon pinks, turquoise, stars, spangles and sequins, I love it all! The shoes are universally pointed, pin heels; meaning we can say a welcome 'adios' to sky high platforms in favour of a far more manageable, not quite so intimidating heel. Now I just need to work out how I could get my hands on some!

The clothing was certainly a bit hit and miss for me. Whilst I can't say I was much of a fan of some of the masculine tailored looks which I'm becoming a bit bored of seeing, certain pieces like the black lace and leoprint print sequins really got my attention, despite the shapes being ones we've seen from D&G numerous times before and them being draped over Victoria's Secret models who look good in bin liners! (Alessandra Ambrosio in particular is stunning!)

Here are a few of the highlights for me:

What did you make of this collection?

River Island A/W 2011 Drop

It may be mid way through July, but Autumn/Winter is already peeping it's head out from behind the maxi skirts and delicate crochets to make it's way into your wardrobe. And judging by the weather of late it doesn't feel that out of place!

Lots of the shops have already started dropping in Autumn pieces following the seemingly never ending end of Summer sales and River Island is definately at the forefront.

Heavy knits, snoods and quilted jackets are all sitting in the 'New In' department ready to seduce you into parting with your £30, so here are my Top 5 A/W pieces which have me throwing my bikini in the bin and dribbling with excitement at the thought of wearing a chunky knit jumper!

Best Dressed of the Week- Ashley Tisdale

My best dressed of the week this week is going to Ashley Tisdale at the Miu Miu Presents Lucrecia Martel’s “Muta” event in Beverley Hills.

Ashley wore a cream coloured peter pan colour dress from ASOS, paired with Miu Miu Mary Jane peep toes in a plum colour. I love the way the cream colour of the dress compliments her enviable Californian glow and the shoes give her just enough edge to prevent this look from becoming boring.

Her make up is equally as understated with girlie pink lips, nude eyes, subtle blush and some not OTT lashes; she even finishes it off with nude nails with a statement ring finger. That watch is also beautiful, I need one!

I am very jealous.

I'm not jealous at all!

I also have a sort spot for celebrities wearing high street clothes, especially to a Miu Miu event so bonus points to Tisdale for that!
