David Beckham is Most Stylish Man – Kylie Minogue Steals the Show

It’s perhaps not surprising that David Beckham won one of the top prizes at the 15th Annual GQ Men Of The Year Awards. It’s hard to believe he has turned 38 already. The former footballer accepted the award dressed in smart two piece suit:

Joining David Beckham on the red carpet was Australian songstress Kylie Minogue, who donned a white ruffle lace trim dress by Nina Ricci featuring a highly distinctive embellished design. The flamenco inspired dress certainly turned heads at the award show and the 45-year-old still manages to be the center of attention wherever she goes.

Kylie’s ensemble was completed with a pair of strappy gold peep-toe pumps that we have not been able to identify yet:

The Little White Dress – Inspirations to Help You Style Your Dress Like a Pro!

There’s something so infinitely dainty about the little white dress. Never mind if it has a sexy or a modern silhouette. It always manages to exude a whimsical, innocent vibe. But the little white dress is often overlooked. A lot of people often relegate it to their summer wardrobe.

Lately though, we’ve seen a massive influx of white dresses on the red carpet and on the streets. It’s liberating to see the little white dress styled in different chic ways. It reinvents the whole mundane, slightly boring image of the white dress.

So here is a little know-how on the little white dress styling.

1. Chloe from Chloe Ting blog

Chloe

A plain white fit and flare dress can be amped up with a plaid shirt tied around your waist. A bit of 90s can’t hurt an outfit, especially since the plaid print is so very trendy these days.

Get Chloe’s Look:

Schutz Slate Lace Up Booties, $220.00

2. Ashley from Ashley Treece blog

3. Alba from Monday to Friday blog

Alba

That white dress is as perfect for the cold days of autumn as it is for the humid days of summer. Just pair it up with a thick cardigan and a pair of rain boots. Like style blogger Alba, you can make the look more interesting with a scarf wrapped around you neck and a narrow-brimmed hat covering your head.

Jennifer Lawrence Does Dior Proud in a Guipure Crop Top

Jennifer Lawrence has had her share of red carpet hits and misses since stepping out into the spotlight around three years ago, with the fashion police going easy on then-19-year-old up-and-coming actress since she was only starting to make a name for herself. At 19, the actress was cast alongside big names such as Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman for the X-Men series, but failed to get international recognition since her character Mystique required that she become unrecognizable onscreen. It wasn’t until The Hunger Games was released in 2012 that Jennifer was catapulted straight into the Hollywood spotlight and into the not-so-loving arms of tough fashion critics.

In November of 2012, Jennifer hired the much-coveted stylist to the A-list celebrities, Rachel Zoe, who produced her first big moment on the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars. We’re not sure if it was the gorgeous voluminous Dior Couture gown that Rachel Zoe dressed her in (or the fact that she tripped on her way up to the stage to claim her award) that blew up her red carpet moment to epic proportions, but one thing is for sure – Jennifer is no longer letting her style guard down. The actress arrived at the Paris Fashion Week for the Christian Dior show clad in none other than Dior from their Resort 2014 collection.

Jennifer picked out a guipure lace cropped top and matching wool pants ensemble for the show. The beautiful guipure lace top is echoed in the pants by running a lace strip down one leg of the wide-legged pair. Guipure has been a favorite of designers for the last few seasons because it lacks the mesh that usually acts as the foundation for the lace, making the patterns stand out on their own even more. This type of lace has been made even more famous when Victoria’s Secret models Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel donned gorgeous guipure dresses from the Australian brand Lover.

The beautiful crop top is not available to the general fashion public just yet, so we picked out three guipure tops that will catapult your closet into chic-whimsical fame.

Jennifer Lawrence Proves That Lace and Menswear Can Coexist

Jennifer Lawrence has been making fashion headlines since she started getting her share of the limelight on red carpets in 2011, and she is making sure it stays that way. While the headlines may not always be in her favor, fashion critics have not been all that hard on her (after all, ring up all the red carpet moments of even the biggest Hollywood celebrities today, and you’ll see that most, if not all, went through a pretty rocky start) since she is, after all, only 22 years old with a little over one year of experience with paparazzi frenzy since the release of The Hunger Games, the film that gave her the role that allowed her to break through Hollywood.

In interviews, the quick-witted actress occasionally shows that her seemingly overnight success has not quite sunk in, but she has definitely done a better job at faking it recently with her increasing number of thumbs-up-worthy red carpet moments. Jennifer was spotted outside the Christian Dior show at the Paris Fashion Week Men’s Spring/Summer 2014; she was effortlessly exuding chic nonchalance (yes, there’s such a thing) for the paparazzi.

Jennifer was spotted in none other than Christian Dior, being a patron of the brand for a number of her red carpet moments in the past three years. The actress sported a pair of charcoal wool pants from its Resort 2014 collection, which is not available for the general public yet. The wide-legged pants has a guipure lace detail running down one leg, echoing the gorgeous guipure top, and transitioning into two tones of blue. The other pant leg is pleated at the waist, allowing it to flow more dramatically than its counterpart. The wider pant leg also seems to have a pocket, which all purse-carrying women would surely appreciate, as shown in the picture below:

Because of its uniqueness, the gorgeous pair of Christian Dior pants could not be matched by any alternative that we could get our hands on. However, we conjured up some wide-legged finds anyway to ease our thirst until the release of the highly coveted collection.

Rihanna Brings a Fishnet to the Beach

No actual fishing took place, mind you.

Rihanna may not always be the people’s favorite when it comes to putting together outfits, owing to the fact that the singer has allowed her personal style to evolve into one that is very strong, personal and unique, hence the general fashion public’s inability to consistently relate to her taste. Don’t get us wrong – since we are huge advocates of self-expression, we absolutely love how unapologetic she is about her aesthetic preferences. In other words, nobody can pull a Rihanna off better than Bad Gal Riri herself, and we wouldn’t dare have it any other way.

The Barbados babe popped up in Sopot, Poland as a part of her Diamonds World Tour, and was spotted trying to soak up some sun before her show (and failing at it, according to her). Rihanna sported a pale blue bikini with cat eye sunglasses of the same color, body jewelry, large hoop earrings, a leather visor, and a midi fishnet skirt. The midi fishnet skirt has also been seen on her good friend Rita Ora, who donned the black version with a cropped top, booties and an unbuttoned oversized baseball jersey. On-again-off-again longtime friend and ex-label mate Christina Milian was also spotted wearing a similar ensemble, wearing the black fishnet skirt with matching black bikinis.

Rihanna spends some time on the beach before performing at the Heineken Open’er Festival in Gdynia, Sopot, Poland – 7 July 2013

The fishnet pencil skirt is a part of the collection that Riri herself designed for River Island, consisting of separates such as tie-dyed cropped tops, denim thigh-high cutoffs and bodysuits that are very distinctly Rihanna. The fishnet skirt has an elastic waist and a lace trimming at the hem.

To get into the much-coveted Rihanna pieces, head on over to the River Island website to check out the Rihanna for River Island collection.
