Last Night's Best Dressed: babes in the woods!

29 July 2010

Yesterday Grazia Daily was frantically asking what’s happened to all the Best Dressers of the world. Are our daily lists destined to only be filled with Jessica Biel and Angelina Jolie, we wondered? Where is Gaga? What’s happened to RiRi?! But luckily, this morning has brought with it a bunch of sartorial treats for our hungry eyes. Phewf! Let’s assess...

First off, it’s our burgeoning style crush, Zoe Kravitz. Lenny’s daughter threw on her glad-rags for the screening of ‘Twelve’ in NYC last night, and what a pretty sight she was in this hippie number with a drop waist. Question is - is that ripped hem taking vintage chic a shabby step too far? Joining Zoe at the bash, Blake Lively recovered from her controversial cleavage fest at Comic Con by turning to the trusty sophistication of Chanel (what a smart girl). Remember when the Gossip Girl wore a floaty Resort 2011 frock at this month's couture show? Well, Blake was back to the 70s-inspired cruise collection with this adorable number, complete with a sheer panel for some more, er, subtle flesh-flashing. Hmm, yes, much better, we reckon...

While on the subject of young Tinseltown trendsetters, here’s Shenae Grimes hitting her stride in this delicious emerald gown that perfectly matches the hedge AND the green carpet. Goodness, after a red-on-red carpet Jessica Biel earlier this week, what is it with this perplexing camouflage craze? Onto Nicole Kidman’s ensemble, which also has us green with envy (ho ho!). The actress went all ladylike in this full-skirt cocktail frock from Prada paired with leg-lengthening nude Louboutin shoes. Forget frumpiness, people, the below-knee hemline is very of-the-moment. And we're loving the olive green tone with her gorgeous auburn locks. Anne of Green Gables eat your heart out!

Keira, Victoria, Daisy; now Mischa Barton has joined the Miu Miu appreciation society.  The LA lovely brought some high-end fashion to the Kensington streets thanks to this swallow print dress from the Lolita-inspired S/S ‘10 collection. Although the bikini-meets-apron design makes it tricky to pull off without crossing into TMI (too much information) territory, we think she’s successfully kept it sweet. Do you?

And finally, we can’t go a day without a mention of our Angelina. There she was up to her usual tricks for Salt’s South Korean premiere wearing  - yep, you guessed it - a black frock, this time by Colleen Atwood and polished off with Gucci heels. Damn that red-hot Versace gown for raising our hopes! And we know she's kinda busy with her brat pack (not to mention worrying whether Brad’s beard will return) to think about frivolous fashion choices, but surely a little more pizzazz wouldn’t go amiss? C'mon Ange, step it up, lady!
