Although Oscar season isn’t due until February, with Christmas looming, the time for glamorous outfits is fast approaching as many prepare for parties, balls and other seasonal events. What better time then, to make like the glitterati and replicate Hollywood glamour style? Be it British actress, Carey Mulligan or SATC fashion icon, Sarah Jessica Parker, read the Fiorelli guide to achieving the red carpet look:
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker is not exactly a wallflower, her extravagant style is often just as present off screen as it is on. In her role as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, we see Bradshaw covet the most excessive outfits (anybody remember that Vivienne Westwood wedding dress with the aquamarine feather boa hair piece?) and in real life, the actress is also in favour of statement attire.
Take this shimmery lime green structured dress for example - the dress is bold, but SJP keeps it chic with jewelled bangles and understated heels. Achieve Sarah Jessica Parker style with a neon shift dress and classic jewellery, these Fiorelli metallic beaded bracelets will add embellishment to your outfit without over-exaggerating the look.
Carey Mulligan is the queen of cool, over the years Mulligan has transformed her look many times and conquered every single one with grace and style; from a blonde pixie cut paired with masculine tailoring which made her look like Edie Sedgwick’s doppelganger to a brunette bob with a blunt fringe which she styled with quirky tea dresses and T-bar flats.
In this red carpet look, we see Mulligan transformed once more, this time opting for a demure Alexander McQueen halter neck dress with an embellished collar and cut out sides. One thing we've noticed with the stars is they never seem to need to carry trusty arm candy to store that lippie or mobile phone, these items are most likely left in the hands of a dutiful PA. For the rest of us, it’s highly unlikely that your regular Snow Ball will come with the option of clutch bag concierge, so you may want to invest!
Planning on replicating Carey Mulligan’s style? The Fiorelli Juliet clutch bag is the ideal accessory to complement this particular look and is roomy enough to store all those last minute essentials - eat your heart out Carey.
Day to day, Gwyneth Paltrow opts for casual cool clothing, it’s not uncommon to see the mother of two snapped around the streets of London in a comfy pair of jeans, masculine blazer and knee high boots. However, when it comes to red carpet events, Paltrow evolves into the kind of head turning goddess who would give Elle Macpherson a run for her money. Pictured here at CFDA awards, Paltrow stuns in a sequinned one shoulder dress with a cut out side. Paltrow needs no jewellery here but does carry an enveloped clutch. Channel Paltrow prowess with a sequinned floor length dress and the Fiorelli textured Pixie clutch bag.
