Five Best Dressed: a Festive Cheryl Cole, a Preppy Kristen Stewart, Two ‘Divas’ and more

Posted on December 19, 2012 by


What she’s wearing: The R&B singer stepped out in a black Pamella Roland sequin long-sleeve gown at the ‘VH1 Divas’ concert in L.A.

Why we love it: Ciara is a sexy singer and she showed us why in this look. However she hardly bares any skin except for the sexy deep v-neck and the sheer panels along the side. This gown looks easy and effortless while still interesting enough to stand out on the red carpet. She keeps her accessorizing minimal with no jewellery and allows her dress to do all the sparkling.

Maybe next time Allison, Ciara is actually America’s Next Top Model!

Takeaway: Sequins and sparkles are not for everybody but choosing neutral colour sequins are more universal and a lot more accessible to those new to sequins. And as most neutral colour dresses you can get a lot more mileage out of them year round then something in a bolder colour.


Kelly Osbourne

What she’s wearing: Osbourne attended the ‘VH1 Divas’ concert in L.A. In a white Paule Ka mini dress, Charlotte Olympia zebra heels, and her signature lavender locks.

Why we love it: Osbourne stood out in white on the red carpet and she looked magnificent in this glam-retro styling. Since she opted for a Little White Dress Osbourne was able to have a lot more fun with her styling, so she opted for some funky zebra print and fur shoes and an Eddie Parker clutch with metallic accents. The LWD also helped make her lavender hair pop, which she styled in a 1950s retro bouffant.

Preach! Big is beautiful, even big hair!

Takeaway: When your hair colour is more than just ordinary why not show it off and make it the main attraction of your look. Choosing a busier outfit will detract from your hair so going more simpler will make it pop.


Cheryl Cole

What she’s wearing: The U.K. Pop star headed to the BBC Radio 1 studios to promote the Girls Aloud new tour wearing a black Proenza Schouler printed knit sweater, a leather mini skirt, tights, and heeled boots.

Why we love it: Maybe it’s the holiday season but this look is very festive while still being edgy. Cole is on trend with her chunky sweater, which has a cool graphic design with bright pops of colour, and her leather skirt. Not only are her opaque tights lovely, but they are probably very practical since they need to keep her warm from the cold.

This is how I react when I get twitter love.

Takeaway: You can find a treasure trove of graphic print chunky sweaters at your local thrift shop or secondhand store. The eighties and nineties were a gold mine for graphic sweaters so save yourself a couple dollars and by it secondhand or just raid your parents’ closets for free.


Eddie Redmayne

What he’s wearing: The Les Misérables actor was snapped in a blue Alexander McQueen suit to the New York premiere oh his movie.

Why we love it: Redmayne is on a roll with his ‘Les Mis’ press tour and perhaps the world is finally taking notice of the British actor in all of his dapper suits. Just like last week’s velvet number, he looks cool and calm in this dark blue suit, which pops when paired with a crisp white shirt. He adds a nice bordeaux crosshatch tie and matches it with a pocket square.

Takeaway: Redmayne has a little more fun with colour this week as he adds some wine-coloured accessories, whereas last week he kept things neutral. Since he’s not wearing a velvet suit this time, Redmayne can take more chances with accessories since his suit is more conventional instead of a fashion risk. So the more riskier an outfit the less adventurous you must be with your accessorizing, otherwise it wold be overkill.


Kristen Stewart

What she’s wearing: Stewart took a break from her ‘On The Road’ press junket in N.Y.C. to grab lunch and she wore camel Misha Nonoo crop sweater, a Riller & Fount chambray shirt, high-waisted 7 For All Mankind jeans, and oxblood Dr. Martens leather sneakers.

Why we love it: Stewart has gotten flack for going sheer and wearing really reveling dresses a number of times while promoting this movie, so it was nice to see her covered up and wearing separates. This is an easy and casual look, which is signature Stewart-style but I have never seen her so preppy before – quite a nice change. This whole look is great but her crop knit sweater makes everything more fashion forward and I enjoy how she chose cool Doc Martens in the colour of the season– oxblood.

Takeaway: Anyone can steal this look from head to toe which I nice. But remember to pair a high-waisted skirt or pant when choosing a cropped-top since we only need to see a hint of your midriff instead of the entire thing. Showing your whole midriff is very 90s– in a bad way and not the current 90s trend revival.

‘Oh yes, I do look good don’t I!’ – what she probably said during this interview.
