Style Icon: Alicia Vikander

alicia vikanderAlicia Vikander has been on my style radar ever since spotting her in that amazing Chanel at the Emmy Awards. The young Anna Karenina startlet seems to have a very good relationship with Karl as she has worn several Chanel couture dresses with great success. I think she would be a great Chanel face, what do you think? Alicia is not all sugar and spice as she has also rocked a few edgier pieces from Dior, Rodarte and Opening Ceremony. My favourite being her sheer Louis Vuitton checkered dress with bright heels. She managed to make the edgy dress seem relevant despite the fact that legions of celebs that have worn the collection before her. I will definitely be keeping my eye on her.

Best Dressed at 2013 Golden Globes

1. Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsWhilst I also liked Zooey’s red strapless dress, I think Jennifer did a better job in accessorizing it. Hers felt more modern and flattering and I simply love the belt. I wish she would have more Red Carpet moments like this one!

2. Amy Adams in Marchesca

AMy AdamsThere was nothing not to love about this Marchesca gown except for the fact that it felt more wedding appropriate than Awards Ceremony. The dress was dreamy and showcased the best in atelier craftsmanship with the perfect balance between sexiness and pretty. I also liked the accentuated waist as it is extremely flattering. The perfect fit and beautiful detailing on this dress will make is very memorable.

3. Alicia Vikander in Chanel

Alicia Vikander in ChanelI don’t know why this newcomer isn’t on more best dressed lists, but I find her to be the best dressed of all the ladies in white. Her look is youthful and fun, but stylish at the same time. This is Chanel confectionery at its finest and what I believe Karl does best. Her simple hairstyle and natural make-up are the perfect foil for this gown that manages to look both intricate and simple.

4. Ariel Winter in Valentino

Ariel Winter in ValentinoI have to admit this dress didn’t wow me when I first saw it in the lookbook and I would not have imagined that it could work so well for an Awards Ceremony, but on the right person…WOW! This is how the youth should be dressing! She was comfortable, beautiful and the dress is totally age appropriate. The accessories lift this dress and the gorgeous colours is amazing against the sea of neutrals. I must get me a pair of sparkly pointy toes!

5. Emily Deschanel in Badgley Mischka

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsIt was a draw between her and Olivia Munn, but Emily’s smile and perfect make-up made her the winner. I have always loved a black dress with turquoise stone combo since I first saw it years ago on a Ralph Lauren runway and I have loved it ever since! It is such a fresh alternative to diamonds and sparkle. It isn’t as apparent from this angle, but her shoulders are embellished with tiny silver and turquoise beads. Emily pulls off this no-fuss look with great success!
