Shining at the Oscars 🌟

cover-photo

Style Cloud is full of award ceremony fashion at the moment but the outstanding dresses of the Oscars are a definite stand out.

Even with the disastrous mixed up ending with La La Land being wrongly announced as winner of Best Picture, there was plenty of excitement and shining stars that the Oscars always promises. One of those stars in particular was Emma Stone, who won Best Actress for her lead role in La La Land. They may not have won Best Picture in the end but there was no reason for her to feel disappointed as she became the first actress to win an Oscar in a Givenchy dress since Audrey Hepburn (lucky designer I’m wondering?).

The Oscars are the best of the best, the top height of celebrity fashion. This year’s awards did not disappoint as a host of stars took to the red carpet ready to shine at the Oscars. From Naomie Harris wearing one of Raf Simons’ first pieces with Calvin Klein to Emma Stone looking like a real life Oscar herself, there was certainly a magical selection of outfits on display.

Here are some of my favourite looks from the night…💁🏽

Isabelle Huppert

isabelle-huppert

Dress: Armani Privé

Isabelle is often seen wearing trouser suits and smart tailoring to award ceremonies. Her dark lipstick stands out but adds to the elegant look she has gone for with the dress.


Brie Larson

brie-larson

Dress: Oscar de la Renta

Dramatic in a statement black dress, but looks fiery with the red lipstick, which looks great against her pale skin. Ruffled hair brings the look back to earth and shows not much effort is needed for Brie to look good.


Emma Stone

emma-stone

Dress: Givenchy

This gorgeous embellished dress looks old fashioned but perfect on Emma with her red hair and pale skin. She shines in it whilst definitely looking Oscar worthy.


Alicia Vikander

alicia-vikander

Dress: Louis Vuitton

Alicia Vikander always looks effortless at awards ceremonies, often looking like a real life princess. This elegant black lace number and toned down makeup gives her the perfect natural look that she works best.


Hailee Steinfeld

hailee-steinfeld

Dress: Ralph & Russo

Although many have been negative towards Hailee’s choice of gown, I love it. The light material and floral design compliments her and I think this is a great look for the Oscars.


Felicity Jones

felicity-jones

Dress: Dior

Plain and simple ballerina look that looks perfect on Felicity.


Naomie Harris

naomie-harris

Dress: Calvin Klein

This outfit is flawless and with the small cut out detail, the heart shaped front stands out but also pulls together this all round perfectly toned down look.


Chrissy Teigen

chrissy-teigen

Dress: Zuhair Murad

Whilst being one of the cutest couples in the world with her husband John Legend, Chrissy is ever consistent at awards ceremonies with her sensational dresses. This Zuhair Murad dress looks great with the gold detail on the front adding that bit extra to a flowing dress, along with the thigh split.


Karlie Kloss

karlie-kloss

Dress: Stella McCartney

Supermodel Karlie Kloss suits this floor-sweeping white dress perfectly. The asymmetric cape detail and the diamond choker add even more to this outfit, but don’t overpower. Her classic Hollywood hairstyle with loose waves ties it all together.


Emma Roberts

emma-roberts

Dress: Vintage Armani

This plunging neckline gown with a beaded skirt shows why black and gold work so well together, especially for an awards ceremony. Emma also suits the red hair and lips well.

Golden at the Globes ✨🎞

The Golden Globes 2017 marked the start of the awards season on Sunday and at the 74th annual event, the A-listers did not disappoint with their red carpet looks. The night was presented by The Tonight Show’s host Jimmy Fallon, after previous years have seen Ricky Gervais and comedy double act Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take on the job.

The night was full of surprises and highlights included some ever so dedicated speeches. Ryan Gosling chose to dedicate his acceptance speech to his wife, Eva Mendes, while guest of honour Meryl Streep went in on Donald Trump in a truly fabulous way whilst giving her acceptance speech for the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement.

But the best part of the night is obviously the outfits, choosing the best dressed. The first awards ceremony of the year brought out shiny dresses, flowing dresses, gold and silver, and even some jumpsuits. Here are some of my favourites from the night…

This year’s American Music Awards celebrated the greatest of the music scene and brought some of the biggest celebs and their knockout style to the red carpet.

Jay Pharoah hosted alongside model Gigi Hadid, who had a total of 6 incredible outfit changes throughout the night. Rapper Drake was up for the most awards, with a record 13 nominations (but unfortunately not that many outfit changes). Selena Gomez touched the hearts of the audience with her emotional acceptance speech and Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, accepted the late singer’s award on his behalf for Best Soundtrack. With performances from Ariana Grande feat Nicki Minaj and John Legend, the night was full of showstoppers, and we haven’t even got started on the outfits yet!

Season Style: Winter Wonderland ❄️

cover-photo

With us being only 5 weeks (whilst writing this, 37 days, 14 hours and 26 minutes to be precise) away from Christmas (EEEEKK!), it is time to banish those wardrobe worries and stay stylishly warm this winter.

Trying to channel our inner Serena Van Der Woodsen whilst number one, not having her bank balance and number two, nursing a huge cold, it can sometimes be tricky to feel chic and confident in the winter months. So take simple style and put as little or as much effort in as you want and you can still look as stylish as possible whilst being comfy. Comfort and warmth are the most important things when choosing an outfit on a cold winter’s morning, so layer up and accessorise (more from me on that over the next week!).

Inspired by the runway, celebrities and everyday street style, this winter has lots to offer with coats, jumpers, shirt dresses and more. Even skirts are becoming a staple item for winter, with styles to suit all. Here is a look at some of the best celebrity looks from the start of this season…

Elsa Hosk

Victoria’s Secret model Elsa kept it simple with a pair of comfy leggings and black boots but styled it out with a cool denim jacket and striped scarf.

Gigi Hadid

Gigi looks as powerful as ever in a long coat and over the knee boots (ones to watch this season!). Ignoring the snow, she shows that skirts can still be worn in the cold weather at New York Fashion Week.

Olivia Palermo

Olivia looks cosy in a fur gilet and military styled trousers.

The streets are lined with winter pieces and with layering being what it’s all about, you can never have too many items (just keep telling yourself that and it will become acceptable). Here are some of my favourite pieces from the stores this season…

The Comeback Queen 👑

Cover Photo

It is just another trend that is creeping back from the 90’s and I have grown to love it: The Choker. This necklace makes me think of Spice Girls and Sabrina the Teenage Witch and now it is being seen on the necks of off duty models, everyday street stylists and even Kim Kardashian’s two-year-old daughter North! The choker is well and truly making a comeback.

Casual or dressy, the choker is becoming a part of a variety of outfits and not just on the runway. After being spotted on the autumn ’15 catwalk, this style is here to stay. All you need to do is look at Kylie Jenner’s instagram to know that this accessory is this year’s newest revival.

Kylie Jenner

However, if you are like me and started off a bit unsure of the choker, don’t be afraid to give it a try. Much like an item of clothing, it is about finding the right one for you and your style. And don’t forget, it doesn’t just come in the form of a necklace. You can now find them as part of playsuits, jumpsuits and adding a bit extra to a simple top and skirt combo.

Here are some of the best choker looks of the moment…

Playsuits

Playsuits

Picking a playsuit means easy to wear and requires no effort for day or night. A choker playsuit is chic and sophisticated whether it be with a plunge front or an instant floral summer piece. Pair with either a pair of sandals for the daytime beach look or with a hot pair of stilettos for the night.

Choker Split Front Playsuit Black – Missguided – £30

Camille Blue Paisley Choker Playsuit – Misspap – £20

Binky Cold Shoulder High Neck Plunge Playsuit – In The Style – £29.99

Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits

Much like playsuits, jumpsuits are a ready-made outfit and take minimal effort. I think they are super classy and can still be worn in the summer season. Getting the right colour is key and all other accessories need to match perfectly. Nude is always a good go to when picking accessories as this shade goes with most other colours.

Jeena Burgundy Cut Out Detail Jumpsuit – Pretty Little Thing – £35

Dresses

Dresses

One of this season’s must haves is a high-neck piece. So team this up with the favourite figure hugging bodycon dress and show off your shape and stand out. Either that or there is the shift dress. They are versatile and can be dressed up or kept casual for almost any occasion.

In the Day

In The Day

This statement trend is not just for the night. Wear your choker in the day, whether it is velvet or leather, or even has a pendant on it. They look great with a simple bomber jacket and jeans look, giving that extra detail and edge to your outfit. I like to take my black double woven leather bracelet from Pandora and turn that into a custom choker.

Brave the Bardot 👚💞

Title Photo

The off-the-shoulder top, otherwise known as a Bardot top, is fast becoming a wardrobe essential. The Bardot style is taking off once again and has now taken over playsuits, jumpsuits and dresses also. This easy-to-wear off the shoulder style neckline is perfect for the upcoming summer sunshine (if it ever arrives) along with looking classy for a night out.

This look is flirty and flattering without being attention-grabbing, showing enough skin without it being too revealing. Sexy meets sweet in this style and although the bra situation can be a problem, it is totally worth it and suitable for almost every occasion.

Day

With the warmer weather beginning, these casual Bardot tops are perfect. Without showing too much flesh in the daytime, they look elegant and can be worn with a variety of jeans or a cute skirt. Why not also try a striped Bardot top under a denim dungaree dress?

Lace is a definite go to when it comes to evening wear. It is classy and adds just the right amount of detail to an outfit. Worn with trousers or a skirt, the lace material can also dress up an outfit, meaning it takes less effort to look just as good. A cut out Bardot adds a sexier look to an outfit, definitely to be worn at night.
