Meanwhile, Back In La La Land … What Hollywood Wore This Week

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift puts her left leg forward in a midriff-maxi skirt combo at the Academy of Country Music Awards. I like it. It’s young and fresh and I think she’s really renewed her image recently with the shorter hair and cooler fashion. Points for the black and white.

Shakira

Shakira also attended the Academy of Country Music Awards in this, ahem, bizarre cut out dress. I can’t tell if it’s channelling a snake or a dragon … or Mother of Dragons. One thing’s for sure, that hair is taking over the outfit. This dress is so complicated it needs a simple hairstyle – a slicked back long ponytail would have been amazing.

Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate layers black on black to create this bang on trend look. Loving the leather accents – the skirt and the sleeves on the jacket – and those boots are amazeballs. This is exactly how to make an all-black outfit interesting, by mixing different textures and fabrics together.

Sharon Stone

Sharon Stone takes a simple black dress and shows us the importance of keeping up arm exercises well into our 50’s. Love the halter neck on her. For me, this is a call to invest in some new hoop earrings that I haven’t worn since the J-Lo early 2000’s era. If you’ve got short hair, they make a definite statement.

Candice Swanepoel

Candice Swanepoel goes for glorious yellow at an amfAR event in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This too, too fabulous dress is amazing in so many ways. The relaxed strapless bustline, the perfectly flowing-yet-stiff skirt, the easy pockets, that incredible white detailing. Just heaven.

 Kate Moss

482845099

It’s the first time I’ve seen Kate Moss in a bright colour on a night out for yonks. It looks red here, but is actually a hot pink colour and is in keeping with her signature, effortless cool. Clearly, she’s still loving the sans bra look.

Karolina Kurkova

482781033

Fresh and floral, Karolina Kurkova teams her origami-style dress with white pointy heels, and keeps the hair and makeup very simple, with just a bright pink lip the focus. It’s very girly and sweet while still being ultra fashiony.

January Jones

482779613

January Jones wears some strange outfits, doesn’t she? This printed dress with shorts combo isn’t something just anyone can get away with, but the awesomely beautiful Ms Jones does just that. Clearly, looking at her footwear, we all need to buy a white pointy heel for spring.

Nicole Richie

482754493

Can Nicole get any cooler? Simply dying over this floral coat which she perfectly teams with a plain grey tee and leather jeans, leaving the coat as the statement piece. Want! Want! Want!

Heidi Klum

482752187

It’s hard to believe Heidi Klum is a mum of four. I know she works at it (and then some) but really, that body is quite fab. Not to mention the outfit. Wet-look sequins with sheer stockings (haven’t seen them for a while but whoo! Super sexy). It’s the heels that kill me though – gold and black, they are straight out of an 80’s Bananarama clip, are they not?
