Celebrity Style Crush : Charlize Theron

One of my ultimate celebrity style icons is Charlize Theron.  Whether she’s on the red carpet or out and about, she exudes sophistication with a little edge and subtle sexiness. Her hair and make up are always perfectly polished, without being overdone. She’s super cool, doesn’t take herself too seriously, has recently adopted a baby boy – oh and also has her own charity called the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Programme. Yep, this girl has it all!


Sigh. How fabulous is she?

In my next life I am demanding the leg gods give me pins (and style!) like hers.

Gowns to Gasp For

These gowns have literally made me gasp with delight with their gorgeous hues and heart stopping ‘wow’ factor.  They are, quite simply, gowns to gasp for.

Diane Kruger channelled old Hollywood glamour in this Giambattista Valli sea foam chiffon gown at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This look is sheer perfection, Diane Kruger manages to get it oh so right every time. I love that her hair and make up are elegantly understated to really let the dress shine.  Oh Diane, how I adore you.

Another gorgeously glamorous woman who gets right time after time is Kate Middleton. I just can’t get enough of her in this this teal toned Jenny Packham gown.  The detailing is just to die for; from the delicate lace, jewelled belt and soft draping. The Jimmy Choo heels compliment the dress beautifully and her elegant braided hairstyle makes for pure princess perfection.

Charlize Theron has long been one of my favourite fashion icons. In this cover of UK Vogue she exudes Grace Kelly glamour wearing a stunning ice blue Versace gown. The swept back hair, exquisite earrings and flash of lusciously long legs is simply heart stopping. In my next life I am demanding that the leg gods give me pins like hers.

What is your all time favourite heart stopping gown?

Have you recently seen a ‘gown to gasp for’?
