It may be only July, but in the fast-paced fashion world, all eyes are on whats hot for fall 2011. And if you thought that the shorter days of Autumn would result in richer, warmer tones as a new celeb trend you’d be wrong…Designers and celebrities alike can’t get enough of the pastel, soft pale blue tones this forthcoming season. First paraded down the Pre-Fall 2011 runways by Ellie Saab, Nina Ricci and Alberta Ferretti, whoever knew baby blue could be so beautiful?
The A-list was soon to follow the passion for pastel and showcased their looks at the BAFTA Brits to watch gala. Here’s the round-up of the best dressed in blue.
Cat Deeley was the belle of the ball in blue in this Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2011 collection drop waist dress. She accessorised the look with a simple bangle and loose waves,letting the dress do the talking.
Nicole Kidman brought a touch of timeless beauty to the red carpet in this Ellie Saab Couture gown. The pale blue beaded column dress looked great against her pale skintone and the deep cowl neck back added an intriguing twist to the dress.
Never one to step a foot wrong in the fashion stakes, Blake Lively looks fabulous in this Marchesa dress. The one-shouldered sheer grey-blue frock featured intricate embroidery adding to the soft romantic look.
Fancy a bit of your own something blue? Then head over to Tellusfashion. This Zeria blue and lilac dip- dye dress is fantastic for laid back, sophisticated style. This cute tea dress will see you through the rest of the Summer and well into Autumn, the luxurious silk material adding a touch of luxury to-day time dressing. Or if you’re looking for something more suited to evening style, this Crystal Alice emerald blue and cream party dress would be a great choice with its intricate embroidery and beading. Both dresses feature in collections by TheRemedi.co.uk, chief designer Diana Irani Gressier aims for her luxurious day to evening clothes to create that feeling of “discovering a little boutique off the main street”. All products are intricately handcrafted and stocked in Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Urban Outfitters to name just a few.
As always, the oscars is filled with Fashion Haute Couture and the competition was fierce this year with some beautiful gowns on show on the red carpet. It was all about the soft textures and the sparkles this year. Here are some TellusFashion‘s favourites…
Cate Blanchet was looking completely stunning in the Givenchy Haute Couture piece. The dress was beautifully embellished with pearls and beads which have been strategically placed through each layer of the dress. This means that through wear and tear over the years they will gradually become more apparent to the eye .. how lovely. The subtleness of the lilac shades used in the dress add to it even more.
Mila Kunis, in my opinion was the best dressed at this years award show. Opting for lilac again, Mila looks breath-taking in this Elie Saab Haute Couture dress. Keeping in theme with Black Swan for the oscars, she pulled this off brillantly. I have a little bit of dress envy now, I absolutely adore this collection.
Up and coming American actress Hailee Steinfield is a one to keep and eye on after showing up at this seasons award shows wearing some great outfits including the Miu Miu look she pulled off so well recently. Even though her Miu Miu look was quirky,cool .. this look is much more suited to her age. She looks like a little ballerina. Adorable. Hailee is wearing another of my favourites Marchesa.. yet again I’m green with envy
