To say I've been busy this past week is an understatement. I've been starting work at 7.30 and not finishing at home until after ten, all whilst revising for my theory test, driving lessons, learning to bake some gorgeous banana and chocolate chip muffins and trying to find ways to make a little extra money. So sorry for the complete lack of posts, I know you all know what it feels like when life takes over and the blogging world has to come to an abrupt halt. It was funny, but it also felt like a relief because recently I'd found myself writing a post for the sake of it, then deleting them the morning after when the realisation hit that I wouldn't usually blog about something like this if I wasn't rushed off my feet and just wanted to fill a spot.
So for my first post back (the three below are sponspored ads btw) I wanted to take a look at the best dressed from last nights White House Correspondents Association Dinner. What a mix of invites that was! I especially loved the fact that good old LiLo turned up with her lawyer, like they were besties. She actually looked half decent in a crack-head-scrubbed-up kind of way.
The look of the night had to the go to the First Lady herself Mrs Michelle Obama in a gorgeous strapless Naeem Khan - a designer which has had more red carpet moments recently than I've had embarrassing stalling moments on my first driving lessons (which, by the way, is a hell of a lot!). From her hooped earrings to her Farah Fawcett flicks, the whole look was divine. This isn't the best picture of the dress itself but Michelle looks perfect.
My second and third favourite looks from the night came from Leslie Mann and Kerry Washington. Leslie's one shouldered dress was another one of Naeem Khans and certainly did the trick for the actress on the night. Although I wouldn't liked to have been wearing the same designer as the First Lady...that awkward moment when. Kerry Washington meanwhile continued her stint as Calvin Klein muse in this gorgeous coral sleek number. Simple hair and make-up finished this polished look off perfectly.
When I first spotted Kim Kardashian from the front in this green velvet floor length gown, I thought all though it was very Old School Hollywood, it was a little boring. That was until she turned around to reveal an open panel on her back. New beau Kanye West was no where to be seen although Obama did at one point called him a 'douche bag' so no wonder his invite 'got lost in the post'. Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks meanwhile, continues her assault on the red carpet with this gorgeous red Antonio Berardi dress, complete with peplum hem. The colour looks gorgeous on Elizabeth and this goes to show no citrus shade will be left untouched after the actresses yellow and orange Ellie Saab numbers she wore during the HG promotional tour.
Kate Hudson looked stunning at the event, coming along with her mum Goldie Hawn and both rocking gorgeous looks. Kate was, surprisingly, wearing a Jenny Packham number when I fully expected her to wear Stella McCartney. This purple sequined number only highlighted how svelte the actress looks only months after giving birth. Giving us a little leg for the event, Sofia Vergara wore a knee length black David Meester dress with jacquard print and gem stone waist belt. I absolutely love this style of dress, suited perfectly to my bottom heavy figure. If only I had breasts as magnificent as Sofia's!
Other looks on the night that killed it came from Elle McPherson, Rachel Zoe, Kate Upton, Reese Witherspoon, Charlize Theron and Rashida Jones.
