Caitriona Balfe vs Sophie Tuner

I'm calling all the "Outlander" and "Game of Thrones" fans out there...this might interest you!
Irish actress Caitriona Balfe wore this white ruffle lace embroidered top and skirt by Louis Vuitton at the photocall of her latest movie "Money Monster", during Cannes Film Festival, last May. She was super chic and classy with a braided updo and golden sandals.
English actress Sophie Tuner showed at a "Game of Thrones" fan event in Madrid, a few days ago with the same outfit as Caitriona, but changed both the hairstyle and shoes, opting for a wavy side sweep and black combat boots.

Who do you think wore it better?  
Caitriona Balfe or Sophie Tuner?

Who Wore It Best: Gucci Edition

It's been a while since the last "Who wore it Best" edition post, so why not doing one in celebration of Gucci's new creative director's first year? Alessandro Michele has a very unique and fun sense of style and gave Gucci an entire new direction...and apparently celebs and influencers love it!

Let's start from the oldest to the newest, shall we? Good, let's do this!
Chloe Grace Moretz walked the blue carpet at the 2015 Teen Choice awards on August, last year. She wore a sheer dark green top and black pleated skirt from Gucci Resort 2016. She added to the look blue minimal sandals and a bright red lipstick as make up.
Bianca Brandolini d'Adda is an Italian socialite and was a guest at the Gucci Spring 2016 show, during Milan Fahion Week, last September. She opted for her usual make up and hairstyle and matched black pumps.
Actress Nicole Kidman attended the 6th Annual WhatsOnStage Award in London, last February. Fro the occasion she wore a Gucci Pre-Fall 2016 chiffon dress and completed it with a classic chignon and beautiful chandelier earrings. The same dress has been seen also on Anna dello Russo, editor in chief of Vogue Japan, late this June, in Milan during Men's Fashion Week.
American actress Elle Fanning chose to wear this gipsy inspired floral dress from Gucci Spring 2016 on the red carpet of "Trumbo" premiere, on October, last year. She matched the gown with floral accessories and Gucci open toe shoes. Russian born model/blogger Xenia Tchoumitcheva went for the same dress at the opening of the 13rd edition of Convivio, a charity market with the porpouse of raising founds for AIDS researches.

These are just to name a few but also model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley & royal Tatiana Santodomingo, actress Dakota Johnson & Brit blogger Susie Bubble wore Gucci dresses in different occasions. 
Pictures speak fro themeselves: if there're a lot of celebs with the exact same dress I think that means you're on the right direction!
Let me know if you liked this WWIB edition and if I miss somebody!

[Vintage] Movie Review: Some Like It Hot

Last month I was watching "Bourne Legacy" with my grandma (yes, really!) and she was complaining about new movies which are too cruent and there aren't old good commedies the time she finished talking a promo of "Some like it hot" was on, saying the movie was going to be aired the night after. Coincidences? 
Anyway, I have never watched a movie starring Marilyn Monroe (shame on me, I know!) and I'm a huge fan of Billy Wilder's works, so we decided to watch it.
Here's my review and thoughts!

Get The Look: Anne Hathaway Style

I love when actors/actresses do promo tour for their new's a great chance to see beautiful gowns during red carpets and great/more 'casual' outifts during a photocall and press conferences.

I'm a fan of Anne Hathaway since "Pretty Princess" and, even if I think she looked lovely with her pixie cut the last couple of years, she's also very pretty with her usual long bob hairstyle. But let's back to business and talk about her look at a press conference for "Alice Through the Looking Glass".
ZARA Floral blazere (HERE) / ZARA Floral trousers (HERE)

Late last May, Anne made an appearance at a press conference for her latest movie, wearing a Jenny Packham floral suit. I thought it could also be appropriate as an office attire, so if you'd like to replicate the look, here's my suggestion: ZARA floral blazer and trousers look similar to the ones wore by Anne, but in a softer and more pastel tone.

So, what do you think?  Could the be good for work?

Emilia Clarke vs Eva Herzigova

Remember last April, when both Duchess of Cambridge and Drew Barrymore wore the same dress the same day? Well, today's #WWIB it's not that level, but almost...same dress worn by two celebs within a few days of distance.
We are talking, of course, about this green embellished tulle half sheer dress by Dolce & Gabbana. 

It has been wore first by English actress Emilia Clarke. During the promotion tour of her new highly anticipated movie "Me Before You", Emilia made an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", in New York, last 23rd of May. She completed the look with a pair of black pumps and her signature wide smile! 
A few days later Czech model Eva Herzigova showed in the same dress at the wedding of Lady Charlotte Wellesley (descendant of the first Duke of Wellington) and Alejandro Santo Domingo (Colombian businessman and uncle of Tatiana Santo Domingo, wife of Andrea Casiraghi of Monaco) in Granada, Spain.
Eva wore Dolce&Gabbana head to toe: dress, purse and shoes were all by the Italian designers duo. 

Who do you think wore it better?  
Emilia Clarke or Eva Herzigova?

Get Her Look: Miriam Leone' Style

For those of you who don't know who this girl is, Miriam Leone is an italian actress and TV presenter. She started her career in the show business when she won Miss Italia, back in 2008.
One of her latest red carpet appearences was early this May, during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, where she attended the photocall of the Italian movie "Fai bei sogni".

For the occasion she wore a floral printed dress by Gucci which is (in my humble opinion) ASTONISHING!
If you'd like to replicate the Miriam's look, I chose this ZARA flower themed maxi dress: it has a black background instead of white and 3/4 sleevees. 
Click HERE for all the details.

I'm aware it's not the same as the  Gucci dress, but it's similiar and it can be worn either button up as a dress or with shorts as a (very) long shirt...your choice!
