It has been a while since I’ve written one of these posts! I love the fact that I can comment on the Emmy Awards because anyone who knows me well knows that I am a complete and utter TV show addict and this is the perfect opportunity for me to share with you some of my favourite TV shows. Is it sad that I’m perfectly content to stay home (and prefer to do so) to watch my favourite TV with some Chinese take out on a Friday evening rather than go out for drinks and socialise in London?! Anyway, I digress so without further adieu …
- T-Styled Me’s Vote for Best Styled goes to …
Okay I have to admit that I copped out and couldn’t decide on a best styled celebrity this time around due to lack of inspirational choice. While I was torn over too many choices in a previous post (Cannes Film Festival), I just honestly wasn’t blown away but one single gown so here are my choices for best dressed ladies:
Giuliana Rancic (From E!) in Romona Keveza
Why? The well structured and tailored gown has the elegance of that classic Black dress that will be worn for years to come and you can imagine Audrey Hepburn giving the dress her nod of approval with the addition of a pair of silk gloves. The high split and angled bustier keeps the look contemporary as does Guiliana’s smokey eyes and boxed jewelled clutch. I just wished she would have put on some weight, I mean, bright red matte lipstick to stop her looking so … well, Victoria ‘pre-celebrity-turned-fashion-designer-&-I-wear-my-hair-loose-now-so-take-me-seriously-and-pay-£3000-for-my-bag Beckham’ like. I love G’s onscreen personality and loved watching her reality show with Bill Rancic when they got married in Italy and yes, I watched the Apprentice too! And in case you’re wondering she now has a baby boy, Edward Duke !
Allison Williams (from ‘Girls) in Oscar De La Renta
Why ? Because I’m in love with Fred Leighton Jewellery that she wore and I love the fact that she knows (or her stylist knows!) that with brunette/auburn locks like hers that an emerald green gown looks stunning against her porcelain skin. I loved watching the ‘Girls’ Series and watched the first season within a week, no sleeping styles. The series is about a group of 20-somethings who live in New York and struggle with relationships, their parents, paying rent, making the right life decisions and it is well, a bit raw, confronting and in some scenes, you just cringe, think “awkward” and hastily turn down the volume and go… Whaaat? Did they have to include that scene?! But I love the fact that the characters are so diverse in backgrounds, aren’t overly glamorous and don’t have their *hit together – just like in real life and I admire the fact that the creator, director and writer, Lena Dunham also stars in the series and achieved all this by the age of 26. Girl power!
Emilia Clarke (From Games of Thrones) in Chanel
Why? I know this isn’t your typical Awards type show stopper gown but I guess I just love the innovative Chanel Creation. I did wonder whether the outer skirt was detachable (hey pronto, another Summer dress!) but all in all I thought this dress really suited the English Rose – I thought she pulled the length off really well and I’m a sucker for nude close-toed pumps. Now I must admit that I don’t watch Games of Thrones … Does anyone else watch it and recommend it? After watching the first episode, I just found it a bit gory and disturbing for my taste (but I’ve been told not to dwell on the incest issue as there are more exciting aspects of the show to focus on). Perhaps I must give it another go ….
Claire Danes (from Homeland) in Lanvin
Why? So a lot of people put Claire Dane on the worst dressed list but I quite like the use of Canary Yellow/Chartreuse and the dress suited Claire’s cute baby bump. I think Claire stayed true to her style which I would describe as practical and cool. She always makes an effort but is never overdone and doesn’t really pay too much attention to the little details like nails, make up hair or jewellery. I think I might be a bit biased because I am a HUGE fan of the Homeland show in which Claire’s character develops from being a boring and borderline annoying workaholic to a strong, passionate, intelligent woman who, I don’t want to spoil it but let’s just say she wholeheartedly deserves all the awards she has received because she’s such a great actress in the series (and I am a Leo fan from way back in the the Romeo & Juliet days). If you liked the series 24, you will love Homeland – It’s by the same producers but they have slowed it down in this series and if you love suspense you will be by no means disappointed!
Leslie Mann in Naeem Khan

Ashley Judd in Caroline Herrera
Why? It’s the hair – it’s HUGE for starters and it just adds to the aged look of the dress.
