For those who love the ease of dressing in Summer, the change of seasons can bring a black cloud over your personal style. Floral dresses are replaced by boring sweaters and drab colours sub in for Spring's pretty pastel palette. We want to turn that sartorial frown upside-down, because there are plenty of reasons to get excited about about getting dressed during Winter. 57 of them, to be precise. We've culled our off-duty celebrity archives to bring you a celebrity mood board of the best kind. From luxurious layers to clever colour combinations to a serious flirtation with texture — the options are endless. Your cool-climate inspiration awaits!
The celebrations for The Great Gatsby certainly don't seem to be slowing! After a glamorous round of global premieres and many a party at Cannes Film Festival, the cast and crew threw yet another fabulous soiree last night — this time in Sydney to celebrate the relationship with Tiffany & Co. The iconic jewellery house reached into its archives and also created bespoke pieces especially for the period film's lavish costumes — giving guests at Neil Perry's Rockpool Bar and Grill restaurant an exclusive preview of the film's glittering supporting cast members.
Elizabeth Debicki teamed a pair of Tiffany & Co.'s flawless yellow gold and diamond earrings back with her backless Carla Zampatti gown, Gracie Otto looked flirty in a Gucci LBD and Carey Mulligan looked effortless in a simple black sheath. Want your own one-on-one with the jewels of The Great Gatsby? They'll be on display in the Sydney Tiffany & Co. Castlereagh Street store from Monday 27th of May until the 2nd of June. Take a peek!
As Cannes keeps rolling on, the stunning pictures keep pouring in. On par with Cannes past, this season's stylish set kicked off the glamour Gatsby-style with the film's premiere on day one, and continued to wow with every subsequent premiere and party. The past few days have provided plenty of pretty fodder, with perfectly chic looks from models Liu Wen and Lily Donaldson and a black sparkler from Olivia Palermo. It doesn't stop there; inside you'll find every Cannes appearance so far, so just keep clicking — and stay tuned for all the red carpet action right here.
The Cannes Film Festival isn't complete until amfAR's annual Cinema Against AIDS gala goes down. And right now, we're mesmerised by some seriously gorgeous red carpet ensembles that rival those from the week's biggest movie premieres. This year's attendees include Jessica Chastain in a deep red cut-out gown that matched her hair perfectly, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rocking a little white dress with matching pumps, and Olivia Palermo looking wild as ever in animal print (hello thigh-high slit!). Add a plethora of superchic models and actresses to that list and you have one glamorous affair. Click through to see who's wearing what at the 2013 amfAR benefit.
Already a style favourite, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, has continued to entrance us with her stylish maternity ensembles. She chose a daffodil-hued Emilia Wickstead coat for her appearance at Queen Elizabeth's annual garden party this week, the bright colour adding to the general glow surrounding the expectant mum.
See close-ups of her sweet ensemble, plus some of our other favourite fashion moments from the duchess, right here. From her stunning teal Jenny Packham gown and Issa wrap dresses to her perfect Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen-designed wedding dress and countless tartan-print coats, it's virtually impossible not to fall a little bit in love with Kate's easy elegance.
There was no tribute more fitting for the 50th anniversary viewing of Cleopatra — and to the film's stars, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton — than Jessica Chastain wearing one of Taylor's Bulgari necklaces at the Cannes premiere. It was a gift given to Taylor by Burton on her 40th birthday, in 1972. The sapphire-and-diamond sautoir (with a 65-carat centre stone) is part of an eight-piece collection that the jewellery house bought back from Taylor's 2011 Christie's auction, and these pieces have rarely been loaned to celebrities. "I feel so lucky to be wearing them. They looked so fabulous on her and she was a movie star from her head to her toes," said Chastain. "That kind of glamorous star doesn't exist anymore but their diamonds do." An all-angles look at the stunning Bulgari necklace, here in the gallery.
Day eight at Cannes has proved just as glamorous as the very first day on the festival's red carpet. On par with Cannes past, this season's stylish set kicked off the glamour Gatsby-style with the film's premiere on day one, and continued to wow with every subsequent premiere and party. Yesterday's round of events were no exception — just click through for jaw-dropping arrivals from the supermodel crew at the Behind the Candelabra premiere, plus Jessica Chastain and even Sharon Stone at the post-premiere parties. It doesn't stop there; inside you'll find every Cannes appearance so far, so just keep clicking — and stay tuned for all the red carpet action right here.
It may have been raining last night at Sydney, but that didn't put a dampener on the glamour on show at Moore Park's Entertainment Quarter for the much anticipated premiere of The Great Gatsby. The official invitation asked "a hint of 1920s" from the A-list guest list, and deliver they did — some getting more into the theme than others. Leading ladies Carey Mulligan and Elizabeth Debicki took a more relaxed approach to the dress code, donning a Nina Ricci bustier and Lanvin trousers, and full-skirted floral Christian Dior respectively. Others, like Emma Freedman, Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Deborah Hutton, got right into character in flapper-esque dresses with plenty of sparkle.
The middle of the road approach looked the chicest to us; best exemplified by Laura Dundovic, Delta Goodrem, Kate Peck, Alice Burdeu and Jesinta Campbell who added who paid subtle tributes to the era via headpieces, antique lace, deco shapes or metallic fabrications. Good work, girls! This is one red carpet round-up you don't want to miss — step inside to zoom in on all the razzle-dazzle!
When it comes to the glamour at the Cannes Film Festival, even the supporting details are on a grander scale. For every ensemble that hits the red carpet, we'd be remiss not to take a closer look at the sparkling jewellery, sleek clutches, and sky-high heels that accompany every gorgeous gown — without these decadent little details, no celebrity arrival would be complete. Just click through to get up close and personal with Chopard, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, and the rest of the luxe line-up of bags, baubles, and heels to hit Cannes.
