BEST DRESSED: Leighton Meester in Prada


I must confess that I used to keep my eye on Leighton and her fashion choices but as my love for Gossip Girl has waned, so has my awareness of Leighton, HOWEVER, I could not overlook this sublime Prada number, which in unexpected and unusual but just WORKS. Who would have thought that red and nude satin and lemon yellow chiffon would come together in such a chic and elegant way?! The dresses' knee length chiffon pleats, plunging neckline and knot shoulders create such an elegant silhouette and I particularly love her choice to keep her accessories and hair and make-up simple; a barely there bracelet, nude pumps, red bag, dewy skin and a bold red lip. Bravo Leighton, Bravo! x

I must confess that I generally find Ms Paltrow rather irritating, what with her holier than thou approach to diet, fitness and parenting. However I can not deny that all of her hard work and dedication has paid off and she looked truly breathtaking in this drop waist peach Prada silk gown at the Deauville Film Festival opening night gala. Tasteful, timeless and so very elegant, Gywneths appearance was bordering on regal.  Don't you agree?
