Clara Kasavina featured on Cat Deeley in People’s Style Watch!

One of our Fave’s So You Think You Can Dance Star Cat Deeley was spotted in the November issue of People’s Style Watch sporting a Clara Kasavina Romeo Minaudiere.

Donning a Vintage Glam outfit, Cat pulled this enchanting look together. This is why she’s one to watch – especially after being noticed on People’s Style Watch.  Cat wore a re-worked vintage blush number, crystalized on the bodice with lady like splendor.  Cat paired this confection with our Romeo Minaudiere and silver Jimmy Choo sandals.

Cat is a fan of dramatic yet elegant looks and we agree – she always looks ravishing.  A fashion maven in her own right, her personal style is bold yet feminine.  She is never afraid to take a fashion risk, and being her own stylist – this says a lot about the charming Brit.  From big name designers to treasured vintage finds, Cat is for sure a Style Star.

Bring on the Bling

And the the Oscar goes to ..... As you may have noticed at the Academy Awards on Sunday, February 27th the stars were aligned, on the red carpet that is - and stunning in their glamorous gowns, but we at Clara Kasavina noticed something missing.  Here are our top picks for the most sumptuous gowns and starlets, as well as the must-have accessory - Clara Kasavina clutches!

Nudes and whites looked ethereal and gently purred "Goddess" on stars like Halle Berry in sparkly Marchesa, Nicole Kidman in an embroidered and glittering Christian Dior, budding star Hailee Steinfeld in custom Marchesa and Mandy Moore in a crystal encrusted Monique Lhuiller gown.   Here are our purse picks for these Hollywood royals.

Style stand out Gwyneth Paltrow glistened in a drop-waist modern and sleek Calvin Klein gown.  Clara Kasavina pairs our yummy Angela in bone fringed leather and begs Ms. Paltrow to ditch the Louis Vuitton earring and brooch bling to save those for another dress.

Reds were all the rage, looking fresh on Hollywood new comer Jennifer Lawrence in a form fitting Calvin Klein look.  We pair Clara Kasavina Romeo with this red hot gown. Talk about bombshell!

Penelope Cruz steamed up the red carpet, in another spicy red gown, this time by L'Wren Scott with sequined flames showing us what a hot Momma Ms. Cruz really is.  Momma we emphasize as in - she just had a baby only a few weeks ago! Clara Kasavina pairs our Jacqueline clutch in Golden Shadow to pick up the gold in these shimmering sequin flames.

Vintage glamour left its mark as Sharon Stone sizzled and reclaimed her hot factor in this one shoulder Christian Dior feathered gown.  We pair this fantastic and dramatic look with Clara Kasavina Rosita Puff in Starry Night Python.  All hail Sharon Stone - queen of this star studded night.

Reese Witherspoon was delicately delicious in this Vintage Barbie look, her hair, the Giorgio Armani gown and emerald earrings evoked that of old school hollywood to remind us what glamour stands for. Clara Kassavina says pair this fab look with our Roselie Silver minaudiere clutch encrusted with over 5,000 hand placed Swarovski crystals.  Now if thats not glamour, I don't know what is!

Last but not least, the lovely ladies in hues of purple and lace.  How stunning was Mila Kunis in one of my favourite couture dresses by Elie Saab.  Mila mixed the lace and lavender trend to hit a winner on our fashion radar.  We choose the Clara Kasavina Hope clutch as a perfect match for this oh-so yummy confection.

Bursting at the seams pregnant and Best Actress winner Natalie Portman is divine in this purple Rodarte gown, custom made for her.  Instead of her darker red clutch, Clara Kasavina recommends our youthful and fresh Elongated Sophia clutch in peach.
