Prepare to swoon! The Temperley Pre-Fall 2014 (that's Spring for us in Australia) brings us everything label is known for, including a plethora of pretty lace trims, art deco details, chic tailoring, cool jumpsuits, pops of colour (especially pink), and dramatic gowns. There are also peek-a-boo panels, '70s-inspired prints and shapes, full-length skirts, and leather biker jackets, plus a stunning white pleated gown that will no doubt make its way down the aisle worn by a very lucky bride at some point.

Alice Temperley looked to Sicily for inspiration for Spring 2014, but a rehash of last year's Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian love-in this was not. There was less of the ornate gold, more texture and print. The feeling was relaxed elegance with trapeze shapes, volume and a soft colour palette that included burgundy, lilac, mint, black, and white, plus the pink we've already seen so much of on the London runways. A petal print that merged into leopard spots was a stand out, as were laser cut hems with embroidered trims. Every camera in the place came out for a black full skirt covered in textures blooms teamed with an open back silk tee. Take a look through the gallery for all the runway highlights, then zoom in on the beauty looks here.
Everything was coming up rosy on the Temperley London Spring 2014 runway. The makeup took inspiration from the fuchsia and pink tones in the collection. Lead makeup artist Lisa Eldridge used Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Primer ($58) to give each model a flawless and fresh complexion, which was further played up with shimmering highlighter. The eyes, cheeks, and lips were finished with an array of rosy hues. The hair was styled in a mussed up 'do with wispy flyaways around the face and a hidden braid in back, that conjured the sweet innocence of our favourite childhood fairytales.
Another Victoria's Secret Angel is off the market. Lucky man Adam Levine is engaged to Behati Prinsloo — and we couldn't be happier for the model/musician duo. We also couldn't be more excited to see what Behati wears on the big day.
And if there's one thing we know how to do, it's scout the absolute best gowns for any occasion. With betrothed beauties like Jennifer Aniston, Kate Bosworth, and Poppy Delevingne keeping us on our toes about setting the date, we thought we'd get a head start on which designer dresses — like Vera Wang, Marchesa, and Oscar de la Renta — we hope to see them wearing on their wedding days and why.

Alice Temperley has proven to be masterful at dressing the woman who likes to feel feminine and just a little bit flowery — but never saccharine. The label's Resort round-up is sure to delight her, both for its gorgeous silhouettes and saturated, satin fabrics and the way it's taking care of every sort of formal event on her schedule in one fell swoop. An important event at work? No problem. Cocktails to celebrate a friend's engagement? Done. A black-tie fete in the middle of December? With ease! Ladies that lean toward the less sweet side of things will still find fitting pieces, too, since dark shades are mixed in among all that glorious pink, red, and purple.
Emmy Rossum is having a pretty stylish run this week. First she gave us an adorable Rebecca Taylor look while singing the national anthem in New York. Then she went ultra-ladylike in a fit-and-flare dress by Temperley London for a Broadway premiere. And yesterday, she channelled her inner flapper girl in a fringed, metallic Naeem Khan dress at an NYC charity event. Consider this her Week in Chic, in motion!
With the ladylike jet-setter in mind, Temperley London's Autumn/Winter 2013 collection displayed a covetable array of refined cable knits, sheer details, check prints, and eveningwear that can easily take one from London's latest art opening to the red carpet parties in Hollywood. Designer Alice Temperley always manages to inject a refreshing element to her feminine wares, and this time, it was seen through her refined touch approach with embellishments and patterns. The opening set of looks showed an array of sheer printed blouses paired with full skirts, white dresses adorned with silver beading, and modern printed sheaths paired with swing coats. We can easily picture Kate Middleton donning any of the above, and even more, Temperley's gorgeous line-up of elegant silk gowns. See the full collection now and come back soon for our complete runway review.
It was a glamour-filled red carpet at last night's BAFTA awards in LA, but there were three ladies in particular who stole the show. New Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe radiated in a gold sequined gown by Oscar de la Renta paired with a matching clutch, gold jewels, and dark red lips, while Scandal star Kerry Washington opted for a stunning berry-hued silk draped gown by Temperley London, accessorised with drop earrings and a chic updo. Meanwhile, presenter Olivia Munn dazzled in a gold-and-white sequined gown by Temperley London as well, paired with a gold Swarovski clutch and diamond Asprey earrings. Three dazzling actresses, three drop-dead gorgeous looks — which one gets your best-dressed vote?
