Nicole Kidman stepped out for the UK Gala screening of Before I Go To Sleep in London on Thursday, September 4, wearing a moss-green midi dress by Valentino. Pulled from the Fall 2014 collection, the piece stands out with its colourful sequinned butterfly embroidery.
It’s a playful choice for the 47-year-old, but the pieces still manages to look elegant with its plunging neckline, below-the-knee length and sheer sleeves. Her chest was adorned with silver and emerald-green necklaces, matching her shiny ring and drop earrings.
Nicole teamed the look with gold Christian Louboutin heels, pulled back hair and clean makeup. We think the Australian actress looks divine as usual, and not many could pull off this colour quite like Nicole.

Taylor Swift has chosen Australian label Sass & Bide for her outfit to the Deutscher Radiopreis 2014 in Hamburg, Germany. The singer pulled the top-and-skirt combo from Sass & Bide’s Fall 2013 collection, looking polished and classy for the radio awards in strictly monochrome.
In true Taylor form, this is another matchy-matchy wardrobe option for the 24-year-old. Although the outfit looks like a peplum top over a white mini, Taylor has actually teamed Sass & Bide’s cage bandeau crop top with the cage peplum skirt to create this illusion.
Black pointed-toe pumps brought the outfit together, but we wish Taylor could’ve been a little courageous with hair and makeup to take this look to the next level. We feel a slicked-back pony and a statement red lip could’ve given this outfit the edge it needed.
Everyone was over the moon when Target Australia announced it was joining forces with Missoni for its biggest partnership yet. So it’s no wonder models and TV personalities flocked to the official launch in Sydney last night, to get a sneak peek of the 220-piece collection, which spans womenswear, menswear, kids’ clothing and homewares.
Model and social media sensation Hannah Saul was in attendance, wearing Kookaïs Congo Vee Dress with contrasting leopard and floral prints. She teamed the look with a navy fold-over clutch, black pointed-toe heels and a swept-back hairdo. TV presenter Laura Csortan also sported Kookaï, opting for its black Abbey Jumpsuit with side cut-out detail.
Spring racing season is upon us, and now’s the time to start planning your fabulous fashions on the field. While putting together your outfit from head to toe can be fun, it can be gruelling to find headwear that matches your ensemble well.
There’s no need, though. Look no further than the wonderful designs of Danica Erard, who constructs custom-made designs from her home in Deniliquin, New South Wales. Lady Gaga, Rebecca Judd, Erin Holland and Kate Waterhouse are all huge fans, so we’re also completely sold on this designer too.
Danica has well and truly stirred up the millinery scene with unique pieces and modern techniques, including 3-D printing, and designs so phenomenal you’ll be wondering how your previous headwear ever sufficed. “The hat is a smile to your outfit,” says Danica, and if your wearing one of her designs, we think you’ll be grinning from ear to ear.
New York Fashion Week officially kicked off today, and while we’ll be scouring the runways looking to identify next season’s trends, statement pieces and accessories, Pantone is giving a sneak peek at what to expect from the collections this season. We hope you like blues, greens and grays because according to the folks at Pantone, they make up most of the top 10 colors for Spring 2015, for both womenswear and menswear.
Pantone released its predictions for the top colors used this season to WWD. Each of the top four on both the women’s and men’s list includes at least two blues and one green shade. For women, the top five colors were Aquamarine, Scuba Blue, Lucite Green, Classic Blue and Toasted Almond. For the fellas, Dusk Blue, Glacier Gray and Treetop are the top three, while Classic Blue and Toasted Almond closely follow in fourth and fifth place.
Sounds like it’s going to be a very chilled-out spring season!
Check out the full list of top colors here.

BREAKING: Actress, comedienne and fashion personality Joan Rivers passed away today at age 81, according to a statement released by her daughter this morning. The statement, published four hours ago on Joan Rivers’ site says:
“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.
Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.”
The Fashion Police personality had been hospitalized for over a week after suffering complications during a routine endoscopic exam on her vocal cords. Rivers was rushed to the hospital on August 28, where she was listed in critical condition and put into a medically-induced coma. On September 3, doctors at Mount Sinai moved Rivers out of the ICU and into a private room, spurring rumors that life support would no longer be administered. According to the New York State Health department, the Yorkville clinic where Joan received the endoscopy is now under investigation, but malpractice is not expected.
Rivers’ ability to bring a light-hearted spin to an industry that can (at times) be a bit too serious made her one of the most loved fashion personalities of this generation. And according to Rivers’ daughter, that’s just the way she’d like to be remembered: “My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh…Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”
Our deepest condolences to the Rivers family.
