Kelly Osbourne in Tony Ward
Toni Collette in Valentino
Kristen Wiig
Keri Russell in Vintage Jean-Louis Scherrer Haute Couture

I'm a bit annoyed, coz no one made it on to my Worst Dressed list at this year's Emmy Awards Red Carpet. I had a whole lot of Best Dressed picks though: the above are my absolute favorites!

Drew is on fire! In the space of few days she nailed the casual, chic, and glam looks! Oh, and notice how she's styling each outfit with the same pair of grey YSL pumps - genius! Seriously, Drew - you are so getting on my Celebrity Style Crush radar!

Style Crush: Kate Hudson

this girl has major style credentials. Kate's know-how is to stick with classics and jazz them up with metallic finish. Each one of her pantsuit outfits is a masterclass, and Kate never shies away from head-to-toe white. Looking uber glamorous on the Red Carpet is definitely her forte :)






Look of the Day: Vanessa Hudgens in maxi dress

love Vanessa's casual maxi and Alexander Wang hobo! this look is perfection :)

Up-and-Coming Irish Designers


Emma Manley SS10

Last Friday I went to the charity event/fashion show with up-and-coming Irish designers. For the most part it was one big yawn fest (sorry guys!). But some looks caught my eye. Among them were designs by Emma Manley. Emma is based in London and I loved her nude shift dress with studded heard applique detail. If I'm not mistaken, you can get that dress at Bow Boutique in Dublin. Emma's clothes are definitely original. Another designer worth mentioning was Dawn Fitzgerald. Although her gowns were somewhat conventional, they all had a beautiful and flattering cut. I would recommend her dresses for big occasions.

Economize vs Fantasize: Chanel vs Toy Watch

Fantasize (or start saving now!): Chanel (ladies white -$3844; ladies black -$3855)


Earlier today I spotted this stunning Chanel watch on French Connection Sales Assistant ...it was love at first sight - with the watch that is...These ladies and mens watches are the hottest Chanel accessory after 2.55! As they are tad expensive...I found a fabulous alternative - Toy Watch. I've been pining over mens Toy Watch for some time, and would definitely go for the black one.

Final Verdict: Chanel! According to French Connection Sales Assistant - Chanel watch is his smartest purchase ever made :). I 100% concur )P.

hottest seasonal picks from net-a-porter.com































Inspired by hottest seasonal trends, I picked my fav pieces on net-a-porter.com. The first items on my wish list would have to be this gorgeous Michael Kors black cape and Miu Miu suede pumps. I realize that all of the above are more of a dreamlist material - so highly recommend to check out Zara for fall/winter fixes. Zara never disappoints!
