Wedding Wednesday: Wedding dress; necklines

 It's the last Wedding Wednesday of 2014! Ahead of blogmas indulge in one last little wedding influence before the year is out. We have previously focused on style and colour when it comes to the wedding dress but it's the neckline that can make or break it's success. Whether strapless, halter neck or off shoulder, there is a fabulous way to work every one.

#ORANGEURHOOD Say no to violence against women- UN Women

ORANGEURHOOD- UN Women, 25th November-10th December

Whether at work or the home,
In power or without a say,
Wealthy or at the poverty line,
Through armed conflict and human rights violation,
In media, education and health,
Women are victims of violence.

(United Colours of Benetton in support of UN Women)

This campaign is something truly magnificent.
This campaign is not just for feminists, but for the entire world, it's time to stop gender violence.
From now until the 10th December, Human rights day, the UN is encouraging global awareness of this worldwide problem by campaigning to END Violence against Women.

Women are powerful.
Women are strong.
Women are worth it.

The colour orange is vibrant, bold and show stopping, the epitome of women if you think about it.
Orange symbolises a brighter future.

The facts
  • 1/3 women have experienced sexual abuse, most by an intimate partner
  • 133 million women and girls have undergone genital mutilation   
  • 120 million women have been forced into some form of sexual acts in their life

The key campaign for UN Women is SAY NO.

The Beijing promise of 1995 listed Women's violence as a main priority which in turn led to the criminalising of domestic violence in two thirds of the world.
We need to work on the last third, whilst tackling the loop holes of the law.
Show your support.
Spread awareness.
Knowledge is power and together we will tackle.
Save your wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, friends, family, colleagues, strangers. 

No one should be subjected to this.

Best dressed at the AMAs 2014

Last nights American music awards gave us the fashion fix we needed to endure the Winter months ahead before awards season begins once more! Our favourite fashionista's dominated the red carpet in show stopping ensembles worthy of discussion.

Red carpet style Queen- Favourite of the night
Taylor Swift
wearing Michael Kors
This is potentially the hottest colour we have ever seen in our lives! This vibrant turquoise is striking yet stunning. Taylor's look is immaculate in this cut out ensemble paired with dark nails, glossy short locks and minimal hair and beauty. She was head of my best dressed at the VMA's wearing a quirky Mary Katrantzou, but this piece is a world away remaining sophisticated, stylish and Vogue worthy.
 Taylor was joined by BFF, Karlie Kloss who wore a sleek, leather Pamella Roland two piece.

Ensembles from the American music awards
Khloe Kardashian and Fergie 
wearing Versace and Halston Heritage
These girls are killing it with their LBD's. Never have we loved a thigh high slit more as these two flaunt their fabulous pins. A little accessorising, a tan and flowing blonde locks allow these sassy ladies to work the red carpet.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner
wearing Halston Heritage and Alexandre Vauthier
These two may only be 19 & 17 but they have the fashion industry at their feet. Whilst Kendall is transforming into a high fashion runway model, Kylie has a mass following who, like myself, crush on her phenomenal hair and beauty glam. Last night these two were certainly Vogue as opposed to teen Vogue. These pieces are flawless and sexy but not too revealing. Kendall and Kylie have mastered the red carpet, here is to the many more to come ...

Rita Ora and Julianne Hough 
wearing Zac Posen and Zuhair Murad
There is nothing like a bold, block colour to trigger a little red carpet talk. Yellow and orange most certainly do that. These two vivid pieces are gorgeously cut but allow the colour to do the majority of the talking and quite rightly so. How many people can make a best dressed list wearing such colours?

 Selena Gomez, Dianna Agron, Nicki Minaj and Jenny McCarthy
wearing Armani prive, Marchesa, Alexander Wang and Cushnie et ochs
Black is everywhere. Of course it is, it's one of the hottest trends on the runway. A variation of lengths, styles and accessorising were found on the red carpet last night and I fell in love with every one of them. Sleeves, below the knee length, cut outs and pointed courts contributed to the AMA style file which is bigger than better than ever. 

Kate Beckinsale, Jordin Sparks and Olivia Munn 
wearing Kaufmanfranco, Halston Heritage and Lanvin
One thing is similar amongst these three outfits ... that plunging neckline of course- these starlets aren't afraid of a little risqué. Whether you are wearing metallic and sleek like Jordin and Olivia or opt for a crisp block colour like Kate, there are no boundaries when it comes to this trend.
I also love how numerous starlets are wearing Halston Heritage, could this be a new red carpet favourite? 

Jennifer Lopez and Heidi Klum 
wearing Reem Acra and Versace
We have already discussed cut out but these ensembles are in an entire league of their own and only these two show stoppers could pull such pieces off to perfection without downgrading their sophistication. Sleek hair is evidently the key to creating such an exquisite look, take note darlings this is the red carpet influence you want to be seeking.

Which was your favourite look from last night darlings?
I was extremely impressed with last nights ensembles ... a little more style a little less controversy.

Indulge in the hottest trends from the AW14 runway as worn by these fashionistas
