The awards season is coming to a close for this year but it’s going out in style with The Emmys 2014. We were wowed by the red carpet fashion at this year’s event.
 
Julia Roberts, for one, posed for the paps in this wonderful Elie Saab haute couture dress. Who needs a floor-length gown when you’ve got rocks like these?
 
You can see Vogue for the highlights of the best dressed celebrities from the event.

The ultimate A-list couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally got married to the joy of fans and the press. They maintained a private affair for the ceremony but there was one detail we couldn’t wait to find out.
 
Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress was eventually revealed on the cover of HELLO! The bridal gown was designed by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace and looks amazing. Vogue also dished all the deets on this garment and the ceremony.

#ALSIceBucketChallenge

This month saw a surge of support for charity due to the #ALSIceBucketChallenge. It’s all for a good cause and good clean fun to boot.
 
Celebrities across the world took up the mantle and spread the good word. As you can see (above) Rita Ora took to the streets of New York for her stint.
 
Even Vogue editor, Anna Wintour corralled her family to take part. Though, we’ve saved the best for last with Donatella Versace doing it like only she can.

Fashion Weeks SS15 Begin

This month saw runways parading SS15 womenswear including Copenhagen Fashion Week. Style.com give their highlights of the event.
 
Dazed also gave their insight into New Zealand Fashion Week. Both events showed off native designers in their element.
 
Alex Catarinella writes, “If you're unfamiliar with NZFW, like I regrettably once was, you may reckon it involves lots of shearling and Lucy Lawless (aka Xena: Warrior Princess) front-row sightings. But, like hobbits, this too is fictional.” Worth a look, at least.

We also offered our short film teaser to whet your appetites prior to its release on our soon-to-be re-vamped website. We can’t wait for you to see the finished product.
