Silk and Celebrity

“A woman can be over dressed but never over elegant” – Coco Chanel

Silk is the most natural and precious fabric for cloth-making. A majority of celebrities prefer silk when it comes to comfortable and fashionable dress. Today, let’s talk about some famous people who love silk and wear silk clothing a lot.

1.Audrey Hepburn

The little black dress – the one icon that, along with Audrey Hepburn, influenced the world of fashion so much that 50 years later it was still elected to be No.1 in the best dress a woman has ever worn in a film by LOVEFiLM. Little did people know that this Black Italian sheath evening dress, designed by Givenchy, was made of 100% jacquard silk fabric. The naturally glamorous texture was the perfect choice to bring out the lively & vivacious personality while maintaining the inner feminine grace. It was obvious that not only did the people love this dress, Audrey Hepburn herself was a huge fan of this dress as well, as shown by her various appearances in this dress over a long period of time.

2. Nicole Kidman

Givenchy isn’t the only designer that understands silk – just take a look at this black silk jacquard floral dress by Prada. Worn by none other than the famous Nicole Kidman, this dress’ debut at the Agon channel party in Italy on November 26th, 2014 has gained praises from various fashion publications, claiming that the combination of Nicole Kidman and her choice of dress is a solid step for her to enter the high-fashion industry. The soft sheen of natural silk under the spot light is simply captivating, and the close-fitting design combines perfectly the soft elegance of silk with Nicole’s feminine charms, making her look stunningly fabulous.

3. Scarlet Johnson

Newer brands such as the famous MANGO love silk as well. In this year’s press release , MANGO invited Scarlet Johnson to be their spokeswoman this year, who chose a blue real silk top with matching black dress. Needless to say, the combination of the classiness of silk and the chicness of MANGO’s design turned out to be a great success.

4. Kate Middleton

The dress has been described in colour as “sapphire,” “navy,” and “royal blue”. The deep blue color complemented Diana, Princess of Wales’ sapphire engagement ring, which her son William presented to Middleton upon their engagement. The long-sleeved, low-cut wrap dress has been described as one of Issa’s “classic silk jersey dresses”, and along with the engagement ring, was paired with “simple black pumps” by Middleton. Kate is a big fan of silk. She chooses pure silk dress as her weapon to show slim figure and elegance in many important occasions. For example, she wears a blue silk dress for her engagement ceremony, a green silk dress for the visit to North America this year and a nude silk dress when meeting the first lady of America.

5. Ryan Gosling

Gosling’s choice of attire was spot on considering the setting; the French Riviera is the perfect backdrop for a pair of white trousers and silk pajama-like top. Minimalism is again the mainstay of Gosling’s style but drawbacks to this are hardly prevalent as the shots above confirm. If you’re set for a late summer holiday in an effort to prolong the sunshine, then Mr Gosling’s certainly not a bad choice to take inspiration from when shopping for your break.

6. Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel would be the symbolic of luxury and comfort, also a huge fan of silk. Once she said: “Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” Whether she’s lounging with her lover in a Breton striped shirt, or running on the streets in silk pajamas, Chanel (Audrey Tautou played) always exuded elegance. “Simplicity is the keynote of all elegance!”

7 Tang Wei

The famous actress Tang wei once wore a silk dressing gown with butterfly bust line. The smooth silk material and long hemline make her a beautiful queen. This silk dress enjoys great simplicity and sophisticated cut out, no wonder all the beauties love silk dress in important occasions or daily life.

In a word, silk is the most natural and skin-care fabric. The 18 amino acid it contained nourish your skin and hair in the most secure way that even the vulnerable such as old people, or those who are allergic to normal fabric can enjoy the comfort and luxury that silk brings.

Still to come for more silk stories.
