ACH Week’s Best: Clooney and Harris

Oh Lordy, it was a week of slim pickings and yet more top fashion from Amal.

And within such a climate, what on earth is one to do, but laud Mrs Clooney with yet another (here and here) ACH Week’s best title?

To mix it up a touch, I decided to throw in a look – which I normally dislike – from one Naomie Harris.

You might remember her for playing the voodoo witch in the third Pirates of the Caribbean, but I shall remembering her going forward for this cut-away number.

But first to Mrs Clooney.

By all rights, she should be a first rate Human Rights lawyer, be married to the man formerly known as Hollywood’s MOST Eligible Bachelor, and wear clothes worse than a sack of potatoes.

Not so with Clooney – she puts the concept of having it all to absolute shame.

So here she is, the proof in her very own vintage Lanvin pudding. Wearing a couture-space-suit-culottes-crop-situ which is all parts excellent on her, when worn on anyone else, it would have been horrifically absurd.

Absolute power to her.

It takes a woman with a trunk-load of pizazz to wear reflective fabric in the style of culotte and chunky-vest crop, and if there is one to do it, Clooney is surely her.

Moving right along – we are a day late with this, and all – I would like to honour Harris for her cut-away number.

I had figured I was over this look – too many Gomezs, Swifts and Jenndashians, for my liking, had paraded the carpets with their hoo-haas and girls trapped by hap-hazard cloth – but for Harris in this sublime number.

Harris brings me back to a neutral home ground, where I am down with the cut-away and keen to see it more.

I think it may be the loose fit and its crisp simplicity.

The glory days, hey?

ACH Week’s Best: Washington (w special mention Clooney)

Like, totally not my normal schtick, and not something I’ll ever wear – unless maybe, at a stretch, to the races – but this is pleasing and rather easy on the eye.

I think ‘week’s best’ is pushing it, but at the same time the last seven days have offered us fashion lovers little more than a parade of Kardasherjennians in bikinis and full make-up. Continue reading

ACH Week’s Best: Amal-zing

I had been toying with the idea of starting a Week’s Best from a style perspective.

I intended to call out my favourite looks for the week. Wax lyrical about an outfit I loved. Having trawled the inter-webs for fun fashion so you didn’t have to. (While boring most of you with more fashion) Continue reading
