the moet & chandon etoile awards were held in london honoring ace photog mario testino. obvi his celeb friends (and some of his muses) were present to join the festivities.
there was one stand-out, rosie, the others just made the cut cause i literally ran out of options.
take a look:
:: rosie huntington whiteley::
old hollywood glam. that just about sums up this look.
rosie wears a white, pleated burberry gown with plunging neckline and embellishment on the waist. she looks abso stunning, everything about her look is working here. i love the long sleeves of the gown, in some way they are balancing out the skin show caused by the thigh-high slit and the neckline.
many times a beautiful dress is let down by the styling, not here. the ethereal white dress is paired up with black accessories. (black and white never fail people!) louboutin supervic pumps from the 2011 a/w collection, a hardcase black clutch and a fur stole provide the contrast. chopard diamonds polish off the look.
sideswept waves and red lips make her look like a siren.
:: sienna miller::
haven’t seen ms. sienna miller around in ages. she attended the awards wearing a white vintage christian dior. the dress is very glam and quite a departure from sienna’s usual boho style. but what really has me thinking is her makeup, let us discuss that later.
the dress in itself is not exciting me, but the fact remains that it is beautiful. fin shaped embellishments start at the bodice and gradually fade out. a deep side parted half-up, half-down do looks effortlessly glam. diamond earrings and a pearl bracelet finish off the look.
now, the makeup. it is very vampy but does it work? i feel the lip is too dark and the smoky eyes are a little messy. the rule of the thumb is to either go heavy on the eyes or the lips. when you go heavy on both, you end up looking like this
:: candice swanepoel ::
white seemed to be the color of the night but victoria’s secret angel candice s. stood out in her black tom ford gown. her black chantilly lace gown is insanely sexy. it has a sheer bodice which continues onto the skirt in the form of a sheer panel. the waistline is embellished with black beads and crystals. her red lips and wavy updo equate to a stunning look. the girl is gorgeous. her dress is overtly sexy, and she takes it to another level with that posing – but is this not expected of a vs model? the dress isn’t amazing me, but it works.
