We at The Backseat Stylers love our tweed. While everyone else has been donning denim cut-offs this summer, we’ve still kept our favourite tweed pieces in the wardrobe rotation. And we’re not the only ones.
Amanda Seyfried appeared on Late Night With David Letterman this week in a lightweight herringbone tweed dress from Balmain‘s Resort 2014 collection, and we’re obsessed with it. It has a very flattering silhouette, is just the right amount of girly, and is a perfect piece to transition from summer to fall.
Now to find a more pocketbook-friendly version…

It’s official, ladies and gents! Sunday marks the beginning of this year’s awards season in Hollywood, and we’re excitedly counting down the days until the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted Golden Globes. After that, it’s going to be a non-stop red carpet glam fest as our favourite stars attend the Globes, the SAGs and finally the Oscars.
This year’s batch of nominees include leading ladies who not only have serious acting chops, but impeccable style to match (or, at least, the most talented stylists on their payrolls). We’ve rounded up the 10 actresses we’re most excited to see on the awards show red carpets this season, along with our favourite look of theirs to date.
From stars of the silver screen like Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence to those who’ve graced our televisions this past year like Claire Danes and Julianne Moore, we can’t wait to cover their sartorial choices over the next couple of months. Valentino, Dior, Elie Saab…gorgeous gowns are coming to a glamourous red carpet near you. Stay tuned!

Once, while watching some version of The Newlywed Game, I asked Mr. Backseat Styler what my favourite colour was. He said, “purple”, with no hesitation. I, in fact, had to think about it; certainly I’ve always been drawn to the colour purple, but I rarely ever wear it. My conclusion was that he was right (10 points for you!), but that I’ve been too colour shy to let my love of purple seep into my wardrobe.
Amanda Seyfried, apparently, has no such qualms. The big screen actress walked the red carpet of the In Time premiere yesterday in a lovely printed A-line dress from Prabal Gurung‘s Spring 2012 collection. It happens to have been purple, and I adore it. She styled the dress perfectly, too, by belting it and adding sparkle via some bangles and glittery black shoes. In short, the actress looked stunning.
I’m feeling inspired. My next shopping jaunt is going to be all about the colour purple.
