L'Wren Scott

It is following tragic circumstances that I write this post, this is dedicated to the life and work of talented fashion designer L'Wren Scott who recently took her own life. 
L'Wren Scott began her career in fashion as a model and quickly became a successful stylist and costume designer for film, she then made the brave transition to fashion designer launching her first collection The little black dress in 2006. 
Her designs were highly sought after and she had many celebrity fans including Nicole Kidman Sarah Jessica-Parker and Amy Adams. She carved out a niche known for a her sexy and strong feminine pieces, each show delivering exceptional creations cementing her reputable status in the Fashion industry. 
"L'Wren Scott had a very clear notion of style which informed everything she did. It's not easy making the transition from stylist to designer, but every year L'Wren's recognition as a designer and creator of a brand was increasing" said Vogue editor Alexander Shulman. 
Below are some of L'Wren's beautiful designs.

L'Wren Scott will be greatly missed by many may she rest in peace.

The Oscars 2014-The Gowns

Kate Hudson was my favourite look of the evening both dresses are just stunning and scream Hollywood movie star. Kate looked strikingly beautiful on both the red carpet in Atelier Versace and the Vanity Fair after party in Zuhair Murad Couture. For me she couldn't of got it more right the red carpet gown was breathtakingly gorgeous.

The very beautiful Olivia Wilde dressed her bump perfectly in a floor length Valentino gown.I adore this 
understated look with the unexpected slice of monochrome at the back styled with gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz earrings.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie and Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves are my favourite couples of the evening. Both different looks but equally red carpet worthy. Brad looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo while Angelina stunned in Elle Saab Couture
I love how this gown contrasts to her recent tux ensemble. 
Matthew looked just as dapper in a black and white tuxedo while Camilla complemented his outfit in a fitted Gabriela Cadena gown with soft drapping from the shoulder, she looked beautiful in this seasons soft pastel colour.   

Cate Blanchett wore a fairy tale-esque Armani Prive embellished gown. She looked truly beautiful I love everything about the gown from the colour to the exquisite detailing.
Charlize Theron looked amazing every inch the movie star from head to toe. The actress wowed in Dior Couture accessorizing to perfection with $15 Million worth of Harry Winston diamonds and her hair styled in an up-do. The gown is gorgeous I love the cut and the sheerness towards the bottom. 

Evan Rachel Wood wore an amazing Elle Saab Couture gown to the Vanity Fair after-party. What can I say other than wow?! This is emerald at its finest, and the cut is perfect the fabric falls so elegantly brining attention to the fabulous detailing. 
Lupita Nyong'o ensured all eyes were on her on the red carpet. She looked extremely striking in a pale blue plunging Prada gown. Another stunning gown from the Oscars 14 and it really did look like it was made for Lupita, the colour complimented her skin tone and the fit was perfect for her model like figure.      

With so many stunning gowns from this years Oscars it was very difficult to pick a favourite and whittle it down to just a few to blog about. 
What was your favourite look of the evening?
