Who Wore It Best: Duchess of Cambridge edition

It is been a while now since I made a blog post on the Duchess of Cambridge...I don't know if you missed them or couldn't care less, however I DID!! So here a new version of #WWIB with Kate Middleton on one side and the rest of the star system on the other....

Enjoy and let me know who do you think wore it best!
Zimmermann ‘Roamer’ day dress - worn by the Duchess of Cambridge during the Sydney Royal Easter  Show last 18th of April in Sydney, Australia. While Australian actress Naomi Watts wore it for her ad campaign for Jacobs Creek Wine, last March.
Stella McCartney ‘Ridley’ dress - worn by Kate Middleton when she and her family arrived at Fairbairn Airport in April, in Canberra, Australia. While Charlize Theron wore it to promote her new comedy, ‘A Million Ways to Die in the Weston ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ in May.
Roland Mouret "Lombard" dress - worn by Kate Middleton on December 2013 at the Royal film performance of 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' in London. But that dress has been worn firstly by actress Amber Valletta back in 2009 at The Launch Of NARS 15X15-15 Yrs of NARS and then by Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in 2010 at a State dinner in Paris.
Alexander McQueen dress - worn by the Duchess of  Cambridge on June 2012 during Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. But this Alexander McQueen creation has been wore in 2011 not by one but two other celebrities: Kim Kardashian while filming an episode of her reality "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos in July during the X Factor Liverpool Auditions 
Jenny Packham dress - worn by Kate Middleton during a charity evening, the 100 Women Hedge Funds Gala in November 2013. The same dress has been wore by Chinese actress Song Hye Kyo during the 4th Beijing Film Festival earlier this year, in April.


Let me know if you like this kind of post, comparing one celebrity' style with all the others who wore the same dress/gown/outfit!

Movie Review: Not Another Happy Ending



Not Another Happy Ending (2013) by John McKay. With  Karen Gillan, Stanley Weber, Iain De Caestecker, Gary Lewis and Henry Ian Cusick.


The main reason I decided to watch this movie is that it's set in Scotland (I'm deeply deeply in love with Scotland's accent....don't ask me why, I simply do!) and, after a little research, I found out that the female protagonist (Karen Gillan) played the Doctor's assistent Amy Pond in "Doctor Who" while another character is portrayed by Freya Mavor (Mini McGuinness in MTV' series "Skins").


Plus, when I first saw the movie trailer I mistaken Stanley Weber, who plays the male protagonist, for Henry Cavill...ops!


But let's get back to business, shall we?



Here's the story!

Melanie B. vs Zoe Saldana

Celebs love Valentino, and today's #WWIB is another proof to it!

How to Wear...Pink Pencil Skirt

The pencil skirt is a well known woman indument, mainly because it reminds of sexy teachers/secretaries...add to that "pink" and "leather/pvc" fabric and you'll have an atomic combination.
So, it's not surprise at all that during last months we assisted to a serial of celebrities' outfits with the pencil skirts as the focal point.
It's actually more a Fall/Winter look BUT if you want to show it also during summertime, just add a crop top and high heels sandals...and take inspirations from the gallery down below!

Enjoy!

Movie Review: The Pretty One

The-pretty-one-dvd-release-dateThe Pretty One (2013) by Jenée LaMarque. With  Zoe KazanJake JohnsonFrances Shaw and John Carroll Lynch.






I always loved sisterhood/brotherhood stories and twin themed movies, even if the actors who play the twins are actually one (like Lindsay Lohan in "The Parent Trap" or Armie Hammer in "The Social Network", for example).
Also I find that Zoe Kazan is really talented and turned out perfect in both twins' parts in this movie...







So here's the story (SPOILERS ALLEART!):
