Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: Transformers Press Tour

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been racking up her frequent flyer miles worldwide on the  press tour for the Transformers trilogy: Dark of the Moon. This is the first film for the model turned actress. She is following the likes of Halle Berry, Rebecca Romijn, and Cameron Diaz hoping to achieve the same success as her fellow models. 

No matter her acting ability though, she has maintained her titles as no.1 on both Maxim's Hot 100 List and FHM's World's Sexiest Woman as seen through her choice of dress on the this press tour. Rosie opts for form fitting gowns and pants to accentuate her teeny tiny waist. Her fashion is conservative with a twist. Though she may be very covered, she adds slits or backless shirts to show off other parts of the body and give it some flair. I absolutely love her fashion, its extremely elegant. 


Cover Girl: Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway is London Calling in her cover shoot for the August 2011 issue of Harper's Bazaar. Anne is no stranger to playful dream-like photo shoots, she did an amazing "Fall Romance" shoot for Vogue November 2010. This shoot for Bazaar is color coding to a "T." Anne is seen wearing only red, white, and black. She is accented beautifully by iconic London symbols including a telephone booth, double decker bus, english school boy, and a tartan clad chap.

Best Dressed Spotlight: Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling has been a neo-nazi, a romantic lead, a killer, a teacher, a mouseketeer, and a footballer among many other things. One thing that he has not been awarded for is his uncanny ability to dress well. Whether its for a big award night or just a casual day, the man knows how to dress for every situation. If more men dressed like this, the world would be a lot more aesthetically pleasing. So men, take notes!  I've highlighted some of his best looks.

Cover Girl: Emma Stone for Elle

Emma Stone is one of the hottest new stars in Hollywood. She's funny, extremely talented, and looks great in any hair color, what's not to like? With movies like Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Help and The Amazing Spider Man set for release she is establishing a well rounded name for herself in the entertainment industry. It's no wonder why Elle Magazine chose her as their July 2011 cover girl. (If you're savvy enough, you'll notice that polka dots are the new trend for summer--also seen in the Blake Lively shoot for Glamour).

MTV Movie Awards: Best Dressed

This years' MTV Movie Awards was not only funny but the fashion was also fantastic. One of my favorite parts about it was that people dressed to their personalities. I can't stand when a stylist dresses a celebrity completely different than their personality and image. It not only looks odd, but it makes the person uncomfortable. 

Now on to my Best Dressed list, first the women. 
1. Reese Witherspoon. As she is the recipient of the Generation Award, it's fitting that she should be best dressed. I love the print and heart cut. The Movie Awards are all about fun fashion & this is definitely a fun cocktail dress. 
2. Leighton Meester. I may get some slack for this choice but I hands down love it. I am such a fan of embellishments like sequins and reflective pieces. I wish it had been a little more fitted to her body, but I still love it. It's great that the design is sort of mismatched because it sets it apart from all the other mirrorball dresses. 
3. Rosie Huntington Whiteley. Rosie looks fantastic in this tiger print. It's not often that you see tiger print as zebra and leopard are more popular. I love how well she accessorized with this outfit; her shoes and handbag match brilliantly but remain understated. 
4. Mila Kunis. This outfit is so simple and chic. It is also so easy to replicate in your own life, which I think is fantastic. This is a great look to go to lunch, dinner or a night out with your girlfriends. It's very multi-faceted. This is also an example of the fact that you don't have to dress provocative to look good.  
5. Selena Gomez. I don't think anyone would have pulled this look off as well as Selena. The silk top and ruched skirt fit her body so well. It makes her look incredibly sophisticated. The tan and ivory coloring is also great for summer. 
Honorable Mentions (in no particular order). 
Blake Lively 
Katie Cassidy
Emma Stone
Emma Watson

Now on to the men
1. Ryan Gosling. It is no secret on this blog that I adore the way Ryan dresses. He has such a unique style that suits him perfectly. His outfit at the Movie Awards was no different. When he walked on stage, I was in aw of his ability to pair such different pieces of clothing together. Wearing a rough leather jacket, black v-neck and blue trousers he looked the essence of cool. 
2. Ryan Reynolds looks classy casual as always. A mix of the Hamptons summer meets London elegance. Just by layering a casual cardigan he changes the entire look of this outfit to a more comfortable chic. 
3. Xavier Samuel. What a way for Xavier to stand out on his own; wearing a great black three piece suit with a vintage style waistcoat. He looks extremely well groomed and clean cut, and what gals don't like that?
4. Jason Sudeikis. I always believe the host should be one of the best dressed of any evening because they will be the one you look at throughout the night. Jason definitely looked the part in his charcoal gray suit and royal blue tie. I love the small details of the pocket square and tie clip. 
5. Tom Felton. The winner of the best villain award looks tranquil in this nautical inspired look. Wearing a navy striped white shirt and matching navy blazer and trousers, Tom looks ready for the sea. Or at the very least a night at the country club.
