The A-List Love... Prada

From up-and-coming muralists referenced in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection or inspiration drawn from German film director Rainer Werner Fassbinder for Autumn/Winter 2014, not to mention those iconic designs for The Great Gatsby, Miuccia Prada casts her creative eye far and wide to design the most must-have styles of the season. And, worn by five of the 2014 Oscars winners - Lupita Nyong'o being our favourite - it's little wonder the A-list are queuing up to be dressed by the Italian powerhouse.

Whether scene-stealing molten metallics, floor-sweeping florals or powder-blue perfection, this is Prada; as styled by the fash pack…

Gwyneth Paltrow: A match made in style heaven, the statuesque actress played out perfection in her dazzling ruby Prada gown, requiring only minimal make-up and loose golden waves to nail it.

Audrey Tautou: Colour-blocking Prada style, the chic actress worked this patriotic tricolour look with quintessential French flair, picking out the red in the pleated dress to match her scarlet suede heels.

Cate Blanchett: Futuristic Prada metallics proved good luck for Cate Blanchett at the 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon as she went on to scoop Best Actress at the 2014 Oscars ceremony. The style-pro opted for pared-down hair and make-up, keeping it oh-so luncheon-appropriate. 

Lea Seydoux: A romantic dream with a modern edge, this wine-hued floral confection is the stuff of fashion fairytales. Modelled by the stunning French actress, a splash of claret on the lips and a side-swept up-do upped the drama.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: Giving a nod to '20s style, the actress did demure with attitude courtesy of this embroidered sheer black Prada dress set-off with flashes of electric yellow.

Emma Stone: Porcelain skin and nude hues can be a tricky pairing, but the Amazing Spider-Man 2 actress pulled it off with ease with a little help from Miuccia Prada's stunning gown with its metallic studded detailing. 

Lupita Nyong'o: Landing Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars 2014, the 12 Years A Slave star won big in the style stakes too in this show-stopping powder blue Prada gown. 

Katie Holmes: The actress did Prada on the down-low in this cool, laid-back ensemble topped with the elegant embellished wool coat from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
