While simply ever-y-one has been concentrating on the Bafta and Grammy’s style (including, we must admit, us) the Berlin Film Festival has been happening right under our noses, showcasing some of the best and brightest style stars in the worlds of film and fashion.
Oh Natalie Portman, where have you been? The last we saw of her was when she made a brief cameo appearance on the front row at Dior’s Paris Haute Couture show, and it was God knows how long before that when we’d last seen her grace a red carpet before that. But now she has a Dior campaign to front and films to promote, so we can expect to see more of her in the coming year. Yay!
So. Gorge. But who else was upping the ante in Berlin? Read on…
I’ve been drooling over Charlotte Gainsburgh (nothing new there) at the premiere of Everything will be Fine. Granted, the top is better than the bottom – but the top is so good. See, you can wear sparkles and still look utterly non chalant.
Helen Mirren took a little tumble on the red carpet but still managed to look all manner of wonderful on the red carpet for her new movie, Woman in Gold. Usually the rule is to go easy on neck jewellery if you’re wearing dangly earrings, but not in this case! Everything just works.
Named one of Europe’s Shooting Starts, Maisie Williams looked suitably cool and youthful at the premiere of German move As We Were Dreaming. Still only 17, she has picked the perfect outfit, her modern box clutch complimenting her shoes perfectly, and the pristine white given added interest with the sheer panel.
This look on Audrey Tautou may not be for everyone, but I love it. 70s collars are most definitely back in (see also Jena Malone, above) and the blue and navy combo is a brave one. Yes, the ensemble would be taken to another level if she wore a pair of pumps to reference the cuffs and collar, but the boots are a quirky little touch that only the most confident could get away with.
So who wins The Golden Bear for Best Dressed? Let us know in the comments!
