belles of the ball

There were so many beautiful dresses at the Oscars last night, but these two were hands down my favorite. Kiera Knightley looked like a dream in Valentino. Styled by Leith Clark, the gown was feminine and whimsical and I think Kiera should live in it. Ms. Leith posted a detailed shot of the dress on instagram... it's beautiful. Chloe Moretz in Miu Miu looks like an extra from my favorite film, Marie Antoinette. The cut of the gown, and that floral silk! Good grief. Also, how cute are those pockets? A perfect solution to the "what do I do with my hands" problem :)

Leith Clark at Home

I have a giant girl crush on Leith Clark. It started a few years back when I first discovered Lula, her now-defunct fashion magazine. I all but stalk her on instagram and eat up anything and everything she has a hand in. 

When I'm intrigued by someone, I naturally want to take a look at their living space. This Harper's Bazaar UK article was all I could find! Her space is adorable, and I’m surprised that she hasn’t had a full fledged feature in an interiors publication. I have a feeling that she decorated this space over time, using her instincts to pick up pieces here and there which in turn gave life to a look that is 100% her own. These are the kind of spaces that I most admire. 

Her newest venture, The Violet Book, is on my radar but I’m hard pressed to find a copy in Kansas City. Have you had a chance to read it? Would love to know what you think! 

P.S. the article notes that her pup drinks from a Beverly Hills Hotel water bowl. I love that detail :)
