Enter the Fairytale: Snow White Is Back On Trend

Maybe we’re all getting in the mood for Christmas, but white is a HUGE trend at the moment. This angelic shade certainly has an innocent, fairytale feel to it. And although there’s a greater chance of slopping your dinner down your front and regretting it forever, there’s no doubt that – in style terms – it’s worth the risk.  For inspiration, let’s take a look at the red carpet!

Jennifer Lawrence

This beautiful satin gown by Christian Dior was worn by Jennifer for the UK premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We love the gorgeous smattering of colour down the one side, as well as the backless feature. And whoever said Jennifer’s new ‘do was a big no should re-evaluate some stuff.

Rooney Mara

We all know her from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but Rooney Mara stunned us at Rome’s Film Festival (for the premiere of Her) with her stunning Balenciaga gown. The oversized collar and sheer skirt hit all the right notes.

Allison Williams

Gowns are all very well and good but why not power dress in a white t-shirt and trouser set like Allison Williams? This Calvin Klein two-piece is sophisticated and simple – perfect for a lunch with L’Oreal Paris.

Emma Watson

Off the shoulder is a gorgeous cut – we don’t know why we don’t see it more often. Emma Watson supports it perfectly, with a gorgeous clutch purse and lovely band detailing. Plus, look at that foot candy! This ensemble is a hit on so many levels.

Taylor Swift

We rarely see a fashion faux pas from Miss Swift. We love how she knows how to balance flesh-showing with a little leg and a plunging mesh panel. This lady always looks classy and beautifully presented, so we weren’t surprised to see her in this white number.

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett nails a fantastical gown here – both modern and ethereal, it looks charming with the full white clutch purse and her sandals. A current day Galadriel in the flesh! But we expected nothing less.

Amanda Seyfried

Amanda stays chic in Vegas with a long-sleeved white top layered over a Stella McCartney skirt, to promote her new film, Lovelace – anything more ostentatious may have been a bit inappropriate! We adore the pairing with grey Calvin Klein heels – the whole ensemble is modest, which is fantastic.

Elle Fanning

This textured, brocade white dress gives a whole new dimension to ‘all white’ fashion. We even kind of like the lace up boots and say ‘boo’ to the naysayers. At the wee age of just 15 years old, we bow to your style and impressive acting career.

AnnaSophia Robb

A pint-sized Carrie Bradshaw, AnnaSophia has upped the ante with not just feather details but lace and sparkles too. This little white dress is cutely matched with a pair of silver heels, which has truly done her screen alter ego justice.
