Visuals 2 – Favourite Fashion Shots From the Last Month

Continuing on from my first visuals’ post (to see click here), I have decided to make this post type a trend on my blog. So often does one focus on a specific show, shoot or collection that it is nice sometimes to relax and just see what catches your eye. For my visuals posts, I garner the majority of my images from my tumblr account, where I find an array of images that excite my neurons and set my creative juices flowing. To coin the heavily-utilised phrase, a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, but more importantly for me, pictures allow one to take what they wish from them. They are not rigid in their expressions. They do not define what one aught to learn or know. They do not present a mere right or wrong. They are personal. They enable the viewer to relate to them, to get lost in their whimsy, or merely to find a stellar outfit that needs to be a part of the viewer’s wardrobe! With that said, it is high time that I practice what I preach and allow some of the most eye-catching and inspiring fashion-related pictures that I have found over the last month to hopefully set a spark alight in your mind. Please enjoy:

#FridayFashionFix: 21/11/2014

Continuing with style from ‘The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 1‘ premiere, we have Jennifer Lawrence in a stunning Christian Dior: Haute Couture gown. Jennifer had all eyes on her in this gorgeous silver/white bell-bottomed gown. I have to say,whoever has been doing her hair and make-up recently has been spot on and has made the star look effortless and beautiful every single time.

Although the voluminous lower half may be a bit too big for many of your liking’s, I personally love it. Especially so because this was a full-length skirt which draped along the floor, but Jennifer chopped it up to mid-calf length and also pulled up the bust area a little bit, both of which have made it perfect for her figure. The accessories are simple and understated also which finish the look off with ease and even though I wouldn’t usually be one for a strappy sandal, this is lovely with the dress.

Perhaps the only thing that I would change would to get rid of the sheer aspect of the back of the dress and just have skin showing, or else make it a tad more sheer instead. Still though, this is a 100% win for me! Let me know what you guys think as always.

SAG Awards 2014: Best dressed ladies!

We have quickly moved on from the fashion of the Critics’ Choice Awards to the new hot ticket of the week: the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and along with this hot ticket we have gained a whole new batch of dresses to feast our eyes on!

For the 2nd time in a row the up-and-coming Lupita Nyong’o has won my best dressed wearing an eye-catching aqua, fitted dress with stunningly intricate details across the top of the dress. This, matched with her perfectly understated hint of gold accessories, which can also be seen in the neck detail of the dress, leads to Lupita being a clear winner for me!

What’s interesting is that not only did Lupita beat out Jennifer Lawrence for ‘Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role’ thus putting an end to Lawrence’s winning streak, but in my opinion, also pipped Lawrence for best dressed of the night.

Jennifer can be seen here wearing a beautiful, strapless, sequined, floor-length dress with again, perfect accessories! The bejeweled earrings with the lack of a neck-piece adds to an optimum amount of accessories for this statement dress.Image

Finally, one more lady who impressed me on the night is ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Carice Van Houten, who went for a younger, sexy, smoldering look on the night. (Can’t say I agree on the shoe choice though…!)
