What exactly was happening with Pharrell’s wife’s outfit?
Rihanna stole the show once again.
The rain didn’t dampen the red carpet vibes.
Getting pretty isn’t always pretty.
The stars are shining bright tonight.
Two women wear purple, internet breaks. Every guy wears exact same thing, no one cares.
Oh Haute Couture Fashion Week! You come by twice a year and give us the most amazing, inspiring, unbelievably beautiful dresses which we love to dream about. Let’s be real, most of us will never get to wear an haute couture gown with price tags around $100,000 and up, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting to look at haute couture collections.
There is something so special about dresses that are clearly not made for everyday use, but only for the most special occasions. In a world where cheap, mass-produced clothes are the norm and we all look somewhat the same, it is quite refreshing to see one-of-a-kind creations, knowing that it took weeks or sometimes months to make them.
So let’s take a look at this haute couture fashion week’s dreamiest dresses that make us want to marry a billionaire just so we can see what it’s like to wear one of these gowns.
This off-the-shoulder sparkly gown looks like it belongs to a fashionable modern-day Disney princess. How gorgeous is the burgundy colour?
The tulle and pink flowers might seem innocent, but you better don’t forget to wear appropriate underwear with this revealing dress. It’s a showstopper.
If Audrey Hepburn got married today, she would wear this timeless Dior gown. Can’t you just see how it sways from side to side while she dances?
Three words that make every woman’s heart beat faster: Chanel Haute Couture. This interpretation of the little black dress is embellished with thousands of beads – a work of art.
Ballerina meets fairy – this flowy pink dress with gold appliqué is every girly-girl’s dream.
Donatella brings the sexy to haute couture. High slit and cut outs – this dress is not for the timid, but the many layers of flowy silk give it a softness and playfulness to balance the sexiness.

From Marilyn Monroe to Brigitte Bardot, all of our favourite stars have walked down the red carpet in Cannes at some point or another. So, we’re counting down 10 of this years hits and misses in the fashion department including models, actresses and directors alike.
HIT: Sara Sampaio
Model Sara Sampaio hit the red carpet for the premiere of Inside Out in this stunning black ensemble which features a cut-out portion at the top. A simple white gold bracelet finished off the outfit, with long, teardrop earrings.
MISS: Eva Longoria
Actress Eva Longoria was at the premiere of Inside Out in a silky dress featuring lace panel cut-outs. The style and colour looks a bit dated if you ask us! Although her hair and makeup looked amazing.
HIT: Poppy Delevingne
Model and socialite Poppy Delevingne stunned the crowds in a maxi dress by Valentino for the premiere of Carol. The emerald green colour matched perfectly with white diamonds and a relaxed up-do.
MISS: Natalie Portman
Captured at the photocall for her new film A Tale of Love and Darkness, Natalie Portman wore an asymmetric gown by Chanel. It might be appropriate for the warmer weather, but we just don’t think the style is too flattering.
HIT: Salma Hayek
Actress Salma Hayek brought back some colour to the red carpet at the premiere of Rocco and His Brothers. We just love how this look is paired with a soft pink lip and tousled locks.
MISS: Lindsay Ellingson
This might have been an amazing dress, but unfortunately there is way too much texture going on in Lindsay Ellingson’s ensemble. But, hair and makeup looks sexy and sultry – win!
HIT: Rooney Mara
Rarely one to make a fashion faux pas, Rooney Mara chose a stunning cream dress for the premiere of Carol at this years 68th annual event. The colour is perfect for her skin tone and is super flattering with her hair and makeup.
MISS: Jane Fonda
Jane Fonda walked the red carpet at the premiere of The Sea of Trees in a cobalt blue, floor length gown. While we adore the colour on Jane, the style seems a little out-dated.
HIT: Diane Kruger
Actress Diane Kruger looked right at home on the red carpet, where she was spotted at the premiere of The Sea of Trees. Not only is this speckled gown an amazing tone, the style itself is perfect for summer!
MISS: Sienna Miller
While we usually love everything Sienna Miller wears on the red carpet, this was just not one of them. The colour-blocking dress had too much going on at the front, not to mention that it photographed sheer – and looked like a kite.
What was your favourite celebrity wearing at Cannes?

And it’s a wrap! Yesterday, anyone who’s anyone in the music, film, and fashion industry walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala. There really is no other event – except for maybe the Oscars – with an impressive guest list like the Met Gala.
Every year has a different theme, this year it was “China: Through The Looking Glass” and even though guests don’t necessarily have to go with the theme when it comes to their red carpet outfits, we could see Asian influences in a lot of celebrities’ styles.
As with every big red carpet event, you always get the good, the bad, and the ugly. So let’s take a look at the best and worst dressed at the Met Gala 2015:
Amanda Seyfried looked stunning in a white Givenchy Haute Couture gown with lots of delicate embroidery and ruffling. It could have easily have been too much, but thanks to the simple colour and sleeked back hair, it was perfection.
Gigi Hadid has had an amazing year so far and is quickly becoming a red carpet pro. Her red Diane von Furstenberg dress fitted her like a glove and showed just the right amount of skin to be sexy but not cheap.
You might not have heard of Bee Schaffer, but the daughter of Anna Wintour proves that style is in her DNA with this dark red Alexander McQueen gown – clearly inspired by traditional Chinese fashion.
Nobody wears pants on a red carpet better than Diane Kruger. Her embellished Chanel two-piece looked a million dollars on her (the price might not be too far off actually).
Rihanna completely stole the show in her over-the-top yellow gown which required several people to carry it every time she wanted to move. The reason we love it is the fact that Rihanna put some thought into her outfit choice by going with Chinese designer Guo Pei, who actually took 2 years to make this outfit. It definitely deserves all the attention it’s getting.
Katy Perry is arguably one of the most beautiful women on this planet, but unfortunately her outfit choice for this year’s Met Gala was all kinds of wrong. The graffiti inspired Moschino dress is neither elegant, nor cool, and definitely has nothing to do with the theme of the night. And don’t even get us started on her hair…
Is Solange Knowles wearing one of those funny mirrors that you can find at carnivals? Is it a satellite dish? Or ist it just a weird print? If a dress evokes that many questions, don’t wear it.
Elizabeth Banks unfortunately chose a dress that just doesn’t do her any favours. Wrong colour combined with the wrong cut, plus boring styling.
Gold is a good colour on Anne Hathaway, however we just don’t get the hood. It would have been a better look without it.
The notion that ‘less is more’ is not always right, especially when it comes to the length of a dress. Unfortunately, Dakota Johnson’s sparkly mini dress is simply not appropriate for a red carpet and should have been saved for the after-party.

Mastering a classic slicked-back hairstyle is number one on our list this season, especially since it requires so little maintenance. Actress Anna Sophia Robb was spotted at the Broadway premiere of Gigi sporting a modern chignon which we just had to try out. Follow our easy guide below to achieve this look yourself at home.
1. If your hair has just been freshly washed, use a lightweight cream so you don’t suffer from any flyaways. This particular formula adds a hint of shine, and is perfect if you’re getting photographed. Concentrate the product into the ends of your hair, then blow-dry backwards.
Bumble and Bumble Brilliantine, $32
2. Comb backwards and secure the hair into a bun at the nape of your neck. If your hair is particularly thin, section it off, take small pieces of hair and wrap them over each other. This gives the illusion of added volume without the use of extensions. Once hair is done, set it in place with some hair spray.
Josie Maran Bohemian Waves Argan Hair Mist, $27
3. Let out those shorter layers at the front of your face and curl with a tong for added volume.

It seems Alex Perry was the go-to designer at this year’s Astra Awards, with several celebrities including Jennifer Hawkins and E! Presenter, Giuliana Rancic owning the red carpet in Perry’s dazzling designs.
Rancic wowed in a beautifully beaded floor-length gown, while Hawkins and TV host Sophie Falkiner showed off their envious figures in classic form fitting styles. E! Australia’s Ksenija Lukich also wore Perry and looked glamorous in an embellished gown from his Barcelone Collection with Cerrone jewels.
While black appeared to be the unspoken dress code of the night, Deborah Hutton and Kerri Anne Kennerley opted for a splash of colour and dazzled in Rachel Gilbert and Mary Ioannidis Couture.
The Real Housewives of Melbourne also added plenty of shine to this year’s event, adding to the mix with their sparkling sequins and bedazzling bling!
The Academy Awards, mostly known as “Oscars”, is the most watched award show on the planet getting an unbelievable amount of 43 million viewers last year. So it’s no surprise that the who-is-who of Hollywood are putting in a lot of effort to look fabulous on the Oscar’s red carpet. Not only will the celebs be watched on TVs worldwide, but their photos will be in thousands of newspapers, magazines, and shamelessly scrutinising blogs the next day.
The biggest pressure to look perfect is without a doubt felt by the contenders for ‘best actress in a leading role’, so we can only imagine that this year’s nominees Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore, Marion Cotillard, Felicity Jones, and Rosamund Pike are having a hard time deciding on a dress for the 22nd of February, the day of the event.
With Haute Couture Fashion Week having just finished and designers most definitely begging the actresses to wear their creations, the options are endless, so we put ourselves in the (expensive) shoes of Reese, Julianne, Marion, Felicity, and Rosamund and made the following predictions for their Oscar outfits:
Reese loves to channel old Hollywood glamour while showing a bit of skin, so this sparkly Zuhair Murad creation might be her choice for the big night.
Julianne Moore often surprises on the red carpet, but always stays elegant. We would love to see her in this dark blue Armani Privée gown.
As the face of Dior, it is very likely Marion Cotillard will opt for a dress from Christian Dior’s latest collection and this pink frock would look amazing on her.
Felicity Jones has had a lot of fun experimenting with different styles on the red carpet this year, so we think she might opt for a showstopper, like this slightly sheer Elie Saab gown.
Lastly, we predict that Rosamund Pike will show of her stunning post-baby body in a sexy Versace dress.

That time of year is coming around fast – and I’m not talking about Valentines Day. The 87th Academy Awards are set to be held on February 22nd, and the nominees have been announced!
There are some noticeably absent names, such as Golden Globe winner Amy Adams, for her role in Big Eyes, and Sitcom star-turned-serious actress Jennifer Aniston, in Cake.
Unsurprisingly, Meryl Streep is continuing her nomination streak for her supporting role in Into The Woods, but she has some stiff competition from Golden Globe winner, Patricia Arquette (Boyhood).
There are a few newcomers on the list, including the adorable (and unfortunately newlywed) Eddie Redmayne, for his depiction of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.
We’re also glad to see the deliciously psychopathic, Rosamund Pike, as a Best Actress nominee for her role in Gone Girl, but sadly she might not be a match for veterans Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night), Reese Witherspoon (Wild) and Julianne Moore (Still Alice).

Who do you think will take home an Oscar?
It’s awards season once again – and how quickly does it roll around? The Golden Globe awards are well under way and the stand-out colour of the event was overwhemingly… WHITE! Despite the cool temperatures and the very real fear every woman faces when wearing the tone (and then possibly her red wine), the A-listers seemed to agree that it was their number 1 choice.
As always, some wore it well and others, well, not so good. Here are our favourites:
Guiliana Rancic and Rosamund Pike
Kate Hudson and Reese Witherspoon
Who do you think was the best dressed at this year’s Golden Globes?

Everyone knows that award shows aren’t just about the winners. Self-respecting, hard-working fashion victims around the globe sit glued to awards shows for hours, critiquing the outfits, the accessories, the boyfriends, the make up and the speeches. Come on, fess up. You do it, we all do it. Now, let’s compare notes…
Former royalty A-lister, Sarah Ferguson quite frankly should have stayed home! Her Cleopatra eye makeup was more Mardi Gras than Golden Globe… Someone who has all the right moves, however, is South African farm girl turned superstar Charlize Theron who made a fabulous entrance in Christian Dior. Gorgeous, charming and a winner through and through, taking home the best Actress award.
Blondes have more fun? Not so for Sarah Jessica Parker and that haute coute dress made especially for her by Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel looked stunning! Also looking like a million bucks was Jennifer Aniston, minus her most famous handbag, hubby Brad Pitt. Mrs Pitt also presented an award on the night, and it looked like she came dangerously close to popping out of her sexy dress with its super plunging neckline!
One of the spunkiest men on earth, Johnny Depp looked positively sexy in his old-style gangster get up, accompanied by his stunning wifey Vanessa Paradis. Sex in the City veteran Kim Cattrell looked just peachy with an up hair do, and a silky frock, that was ten times as classy as her alter ego Samantha has even been. Vintage Valentino will do that to a girl, darling.
Will and Grace star Debra Messing was positively glowing in a fab frock with loads of cleavage! Not a hint of frumpy maternity wear here! And that other fabulous-when-pregnant star Catherine Zeta Jones, self-appointed princess of Hollywood, rubbed everyone’s noses in it – talk about smug married! Queer Eye fav Carson got into the spring of things, sporting a pink jacket – how appropriate. Notably absent from the red carpet was another fiery raven-haired beauty, Penelope Cruz.
Current beau Tom Cruise was nominated for best actor, the award being presented by ex-wife Nicole Kidman. Now, that could have been one awkward moment. But luckily, for our Nic, neither Tom, nor good friends Russell Crowe and Jude Law took the title. Nic was a fashion star on the night with a stunning frock featuring a gold sequin bodice, plunging neckline and romantic flowing, chiffon skirt, courtesy of Yves Saint Laurent. Critics the world over have been commenting on our Nic’s style on this night of nights. To us, she can never put a foot wrong.
I always look forward to the award season and the fashion that comes with it – most celebrities choose tasteful attire, but there are always a few questionable outfit choices that turn heads for all the wrong reasons. So here we look back at some of the most shocking dresses (or costumes) to ever grace the red carpet.
Lady Gaga is well known for stepping our in some shocking attire but this meat dress that she wore to the 2010 MTV Music Awards really took the cake. Made from raw meat the dress was meant to be in protest of gay soldiers who had been discharged of service. She said about the dress “Dead meat is dead meat and anyone that’s willing to risk their life and die for their country is the same. You’re not gay and dead, straight and dead. You are dead.”
Nicki Minaj is another celebrity who loves to make us gasp when she steps into the limelight and this little red riding hood inspired dress was no exception. At the 2012 Grammy Awards she was slammed for this dress for unsuccessfully trying to compete with the crazy style of Lady Gaga.
Sasha Gradiva is a Russian singer and wore this bizarre terminator-style ensemble to the 2012 Grammy Awards. On her official website she stated that she loves fashion that makes her stand out from the crowd and this dress teamed with the odd fake gun accessory definitely had the desired effect.
Baring all and leaving nothing to the imagination, Rihanna set tongues wagging at the 2014 CFDA Awards, there to accept her CFDA Fashion Icon award. She was heard telling reporters that “you will never be stylish if you don’t take risks.” I agree with her statement, but disagree with that dress!
Former Playboy model Tess Smith left us all asking one question when she stepped out on the 2005 Emmy Awards red carpet – WHY? All it would have taken was one gust of wind and the crowd might have seen more than they bargained for. Tess Smith took the phrase less is more way too literally on this occasion.
Stepping back in time to 1999, Lil Kim shocked many at the MTV Video Music Awards in this purple mermaid-inspired jumpsuit. Many years later in 2013 controversial Miley Cyrus recreated the look for Halloween and set the media into a frenzy once again. I can’t really decide who wore it better because it’s just so… wrong.
When Amber Rose stepped out in this skimpy dress (if you can call it a dress) at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards she certainly turned heads. Wearing a Laura Dewitt design she didn’t leave much to the imagination in this sparkly, bejewelled number.

The freezing weather earlier this week failed to put a dampener on the Helpmann Awards red carpet, with plenty of knock out gowns gracing the show-biz crowd.
Danielle Cormack wowed as a strawberry blonde in her metallic hued Johanna Johnson dress. Her shorter curled hairstyle worked so well with the dramatic train and amber cocktail ring.
Erica Heynatz also looked great in gold. Her pretty silk dress is by Salvatore Ferragamo.
Legally Blonde’s Lucy Durack enjoyed showing off the gorgeous beaded detailing in her gown by Paolo Sebastian.
Sarah Murdoch went for a more understated look this year. She seems to be making a conscious effort to promote her position as Deputy Chair of the Australian Ballet. Note the chic sheer black ‘suit’ with tie alongside principal dancer Lucinda Dunn in show-stopping silver.
It wouldn’t be the Helpmann Awards without the presence of Australian theatre royalty Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin. Baz looked so dapper in his black suit alongside CM, who wore a custom ruffled Romance Was Born dress.
Stars of Strictly Ballroom Phoebe Panaretos and Thomas Lacey looked striking on the red carpet. Phoebe braved the cold in a sheer embellished Carla Zampatti dress.
Winner of Best Supporting Actor in a Musical (Strictly Ballroom) Heather Mitchell also won on the accessories front. Check out those bold jewels by Anton Heunis.
With a background in publishing, Allison Voight has written for numerous local and international fashion magazines. She also has her own style blog, StylistaSister. She is Creative Director at Voight Photography and Design, which she co-owns with her photographer husband. Their work has appeared in publications including Vogue Australia, Cielo, Elle, En Vie and Fashion TV.
Choosing the wedding dress of your dreams should be just that, a dream, but it can get overwhelming. Before you go searching for the perfect dress two important things you need to remember are to be open-minded about the style that you want, and to have some sort of understanding of the different silhouettes that you are going to come across, whether in a store or whilst browsing Pinterest. The celebrity red carpet is the perfect place to start looking at different silhouettes and styles that you think you might like. So we have done the hard work for you and have found beautiful red carpet dresses in the most popular bridal gown silhouettes.
The ball gown is the quintessential fairy-tale dress, the one you most probably dreamed of as a little girl, especially if you watched Disney movies. The ball gown flares out from the waist with a full skirt.
One of the most popular and flattering styles, A-line dresses are fitted at the bust and flare out to the ground to form a capital A shape, hence the name.
Similar to the A-line, the ‘modified’ comes in as the skirt is fitted more closely to the body and gradually flares to the ground in the A shape from under the hip.
Just like a mermaid’s tail, a mermaid silhouette is fitted close to the body until it flares out just below the knees.
Trumpet (fit & flare)
Similar to the mermaid in shape, however the trumpet flares out a bit higher, anywhere from under the hips to mid-thigh. Be prepared to show off your gorgeous curves.
A pretty silhouette that falls mid-calf, just like a midi skirt.
The mini is perfect if you are after something non-traditional and want to show off your legs.
A sheath silhouette simply falls straight down the body, gently skimming your skin.
It’s important to remember that not every dress that you come across will fit perfectly into one of the above silhouette categories, but what really matters is that you love how the dress looks and you love how you look in it.
Which is your favourite silhouette?

The Met Ball has come and gone for another year, and this year’s theme, ‘White Tie and Decorations’, brought a flock of glamorous celebrities, much more well-dressed than the results of last year’s ‘Punk’ theme. White tie is traditionally the most formal dress code, well-above black tie, consisting of beautiful ball gowns for women and full suits with waistcoats for men.
Sarah Jessica Parker, co-chair of the ball, once again strictly stuck to the theme (remember that stunning punk-inspired headpiece from 2013) with a beautiful black and white gown by Oscar de la Renta and gloves to match. Oh and just incase you forget who designed it, Oscar’s name is stitched on the dress. Other stylish ladies who donned beautiful gowns for the occasion included model Arizona Muse dressed by Ralph & Russo and Claire Danes in another Oscar de la Renta.
Celebrities including Rihanna (Stella McCartney) and Emma Stone (Thakoon) took an edgier approach to white tie by baring their midriffs with crop tops, whilst Blake Lively (Gucci), Zoe Saldana (bespoke Michael Kors) and Olivia Munn (Diane Von Furstenberg) just to name a few did white tie sexy with plunging necklines. Cara Delevingne showed her rebellious side by breaking the rules with white pants and a black crop by Stella McCartney.
Lupita Nyong’o who was recently named People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Person was the biggest fashion risk taker of the night wearing a feathered and beaded mini dress by Italian fashion house Prada, a very different look to the style Lupita was praised for during this years awards season.
Kim Kardashian was there again with Kanye West right by her side, and she was a definite improvement on last years floral fiasco, wearing a side-split navy and black Lanvin dress. But it was younger sister Kendall Jenner who really shined at her first Met Ball appearance in a bespoke fishtail gown by Topshop. Swimmingly Stunning.

The Met Ball, an event not to be missed by anyone who is anyone in fashion will be held this Monday the 5th of May. Attendees will be more sophisticated than ever, strictly dressed in the theme ‘White Tie and Decorations’ in honour of British designer Charles James. Guests will look like royalty to climb the 72 steps in heavy couture to impress the queen of fashion herself Anna Wintour. Expect to see vintage, vintage and more vintage.
The red carpet will be filled with ball gowns, gloves, satin and a whole lot of diamonds, get ready to be jealous ladies! We’re talking high society, designers like Oscar de la renta, Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Valentino.
I bet you’re wondering what eye candy to look out for too…don’t worry you won’t be disappointed. The men will look like the Prince of your dreams, with top hats, white waistcoats, gloves, cuff links, bow ties, and tail coats.
Who will be there?
Unfortunately beloved Gwenyth Paltrow declined her invitation this year, not really unexpected when she spoke out about how unimpressed she was with 2013’s event.
But not to worry…
Bradley Cooper will be along side Sarah Jessica Parker as cochair’s.
The Met Ball just wouldn’t be the same without SJP, she is the one to look out for on the red carpet. Each year we see her embracing each theme to the maximum, lets not forget that punk rockin gold and black headpiece.
Just to keep things interesting, Kanye West will also be attending and you never know what will happen when he graces these events with his presence. There’s no doubt Kim Kardashian will be right beside West, but let’s hope she makes a come back from last year’s get up. The skin-tight, busily printed dress caused her to be compared to a blimp and sofa.
Then there is the most anticipated attendee…First Lady Michelle Obama. Who, the morning of the gala is to cut the ribbon to the Anna Wintour Costume Center, previously the Costume Institute.
It seems the 2014 Met Ball will be an eventful night, make sure you check back in with SheSaid next week for the recap!
Who will dress to impress?

The Logies have been notorious for some of the best frocks and some of the worst shockers in Australian fashion – and last night was no exception. There was, of course, a common trend thread – this year black, white, lace and muted colours were the hot picks. Scotty Cam may have taken home the Gold Logie this year but the style stunners of the night, without a doubt, were Jesinta Campbell, Rebecca Judd and Jennifer Hawkins.
Other stunners included Kylie Minogue, Sonya Kruger and Jessica Morais:
And those who could have done a bit better:
One of the world’s best-known fashion commentators, Giuliana Rancic, will make her first trip to Australia in April for three events in Sydney and Melbourne as a Westfield style ambassador. She is most at home on the red carpet, having hosted the E! News red carpet coverage of the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and the Emmys.
She said: “I’m so excited to be visiting Australia for the first time. I love Australian style and have worn Australian designers several times on this year’s red carpets. Westfield is such a global fashion powerhouse and it’s a real honour to be selected to celebrate the autumn/winter collections”.
Giuliana Rancic will be in Australia during April for a series of intimate as well as public events in Westfield Sydney, Westfield Bondi Junction and Westfield Doncaster (Melbourne).
This announcement follows the Westfield Autumn/Winter launch of its local Australian Style Collective: singer/songwriter and Westfield fashion Ambassador, Samantha Jade, new Westfield national stylist, Gabe Robinson, the Westfield Insider, Alyce Cowell and actress Isabelle Cornish.
Black and white continues to be a strong trend in celebrity fashion this week, with all black and all white outfits shining on the red carpet. But luckily for those that love colour there are dresses with bursts of gorgeous hues including vibrant yellows, dreamy plums and seafoam greens.
Marion Cotillard was one of our best dressed celebrities last week, and continues the theme this week in this stunning draped black Christian Dior Couture dress at the Marrakech Film Festival Closing Awards Ceremony.
Diane Kruger looks like a goddess in intricate Valentino Couture at the European Film Awards. Love that seafoam green.
Zoe Saldana looked chic in head-to-toe white Lanvin at the Niche Media party at Art Basel Miami.
Nikki Reed tones down a fluorescent yellow Charles Henry maxi dress with a black blazer, clutch and boots at the Women in Entertainment Awards.
Evangeline Lilly rocked a gothic black Alberta Ferretti gown at the Berlin premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug. Doesn’t hurt to have Orlando Bloom on your arm, either!
Cate Blanchett in plum Valentino (we told you this was the hottest hue last week!) at the Dubai Film Festival.
Which star has the best celebrity fashion this week?
