Give a frock Friday

6f698f40795314ab3c089995fc6fe575Gisele Bundchen lounges seductively for the camera in this meadow-flower adorned Louis Vuitton frock. The floor-length silk-chiffon empire line frock designed by Marc Jacobs goes so well with the Martin Margiela graffiti trainers – you know how I love it when stylists pair couture with runners! This image is from “The Long Story” shot by Corinne Day for Vogue UK, June 2002 and was styled by the irrepressible Kate Phelan.

As we settle into the New Year with ease and grace, have you kept to your intentions or resolutions so far? I have committed to 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene to get me back in the swing of my practice. I didn’t really let go of my daily practice over the Christmas break, but I felt it was a good opportunity to encourage myself (and others I hope!) to focus on a daily session with someone else guiding me to keep me headed in the right direction… I am working on keeping my authentic self at the forefront and I believe that showing up on the mat every single day for 30 days will contribute to achieving this goal. I’ll keep you posted! 😉

Give a frock Friday

fashion_scans_remastered-cara_delevingne-numero_tokyo-jan_feb_2014-scanned_by_vampirehorde-hq-3So English model Cara Delevingne looks very dreamy in this shot and I do like this picture for it’s relaxed setting and especially for the print in the fabric of this lovely frock from Louis Vuitton Resort 2014.

Well it seems as if we’ve all turned a corner in our confidence and creativity with our flows at yoga teacher training, it’s fantastic to be a part of it all. Gosh I have had an amazing week! There’s not one particular thing I can say has been the cause of such joy, it’s just been good all around, basically all I can tell you is that the Universe works in mysterious and wonderful ways and this week has just ticked all the boxes for life being beautiful! Thank you Universe!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are!

They wore it well – Oscars 2012

My favourite quote of the night was early in the proceedings, when Billy Crystal said: “So tonight enjoy yourselves, because nothing can take the sting out of the world’s economic problems like watching millionaires present each other with golden statues.” Brilliant Billy, I love your work.

Is it crazy that the red carpet arrivals is almost more important than the awards themselves? What a person wears to the Oscars goes down in history, good or bad. And it stays there. Forever. The only thing you can do to redeem yourself is to get back out there the following year and this time, hire a stylist!

So in keeping with this new tradition, my favourite dressed of the evening starts with a dapper Englishman, and no, it’s not Colin Firth.  

Gary Oldman in his bespoke three-piece Paul Smith tuxedo and his wife Alexandra Edenborough in her black Roberto Cavalli gown. It took me a week, but I finally found the name of her gown’s designer. I can move on now. 

Not everyone will agree, but I like this J. Mendel dress on Kristen. The colour of the dress compliments her skin tone and hair colour and the shape is just right for her.  

Tina Fey doesn’t always hit the mark, at least not in a fashion and style sense, but this time she scored a bullseye with her choice of Carolina Herrera.  Elegant and perfectly shaped for her figure.

Michelle William’s burnt orange Louis Vuitton gown has grown on me. I wasn’t sure if it was the right choice for her at first, but the more I see it, the more I like it. I like how she paired it with a small pink clutch too. Pretty and feminine.

Meryl Streep was the lady of the evening, winning her third Oscar and channeling the golden statue with her gold Lanvin gown.

The evening stand-out was far and away, Rooney Mara in white Givenchy. She just nailed the brief, don’t you think? Everyone’s going to be cutting their fringe this next season, I can see it now. 

I have kept it simple, but really the plain truth is that there were way more boring dresses than outstanding ones, so it was pretty easy to pick a favourite. I’d love to hear from you, what was your favourite? Leave me a comment here or pop over to my Facebook page and post a comment and a picture if you like.
