MatchesFashion.com + Mary Katrantzou Exclusive Initials Collection Launch

MatchesFashion + Mary Katrantzou Exclusive Initials Collection Launch

Actresses Gillian Jacobs, Jena Malone, Jenny Slate, Kiernan Shipka, and Michelle Monaghan all donned Mary Katrantzou looks while attending the launch celebration for the Matchesfashion.com + Mary Katrantzou Exclusive Initials Collection on Monday (April 20) at the Kayne Griffin Corcoran Gallery in Los Angeles, California.

Gillian Jacobs: Playing with prints, the actress wore a Mary Katrantzou Pre-Fall 2015 strapless frock that mixed tartan checks with exploded paisleys. The heavy black sandals dampened the fun, colourful mood of the dress.

Jena Malone: More successful was Jena’s fresh Mary Katrantzou Spring 2015 frock which embodied youthful elegance and flirty flair, especially when styled with the quirk of platform heels. I love this look for its artfully chaotic mix of prints and warm coral undertones, which were beautiful with the actress’s flame-red hair.

Michelle Monaghan: The girly, flared silhouette of this Mary Katrantzou Pre-Fall 2015 dress with exploded paisley prints received a dose of sultrier allure with sheer detailing. The heavy-strapped shoes unfortunately didn’t live up to the frock.

Natalia Vodianova In Valentino Couture – The Backstage Gala in aid of The Naked Heart Foundation

Natalia Vodianova In Valentino Couture -  The Backstage Gala in aid of The Naked Heart Foundation
Natalia Vodianova attended The Backstage Gala in aid of The Naked Heart Foundation at The London Coliseum on Friday (April 17) in London, England.

The model always wears head-to-toe red for The Naked Heart Foundation, and this latest gala was no different.

Her Valentino Fall 2014 Couture goddess gown was the embodiment of classic Hollywood glamour with an obi-inspired sash belt adding graceful structure to the fluid lines of the dress.

The red theme continued in her accessories, yet the real stunner was her diamond and pearl necklace.

I did find the handbag and jewels slightly at odds with each other—a more minimalistic look would have fared beautifully without them, too, with Natalia’s retro waves and bare-faced makeup completing the effortless effect.

Blake Lively In Marc Jacobs & Roksanda – ‘Good Morning America’

Blake Lively In Marc Jacobs & Roksanda - 'Good Morning America'

Blake Lively paid a visit to the ABC Studios for her guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ today (April 21) in New York City to promote her new movie, ‘The Age of Adaline’.

Arrival: I was bitterly disappointed by her first look from Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2015 collection. The look feels look feels really rigid and matronly on Blake. The out of season feeling is also very jarring. Things improved somewhat when she removed the coat to reveal a part leather dress. The only positive it that her Christian Louboutin ‘Tucsick’ pumps were perfectly matched.

Departure: My reaction to the second look was, “BOOM”, this is more like the Blake Lively I know and love. I think her Roksanda Resort 2015 colour-block look is easily her best look this week which she styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Front Double’ Silver glitter and gold specchio detailed pumps. Chic, sophisticated and modern; it’s hard not to fall in love with this outfit. You guys didn’t like her premiere looks, so I am guessing you might be in agreement. I hope to see more exciting looks like this on her promo tour.

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner was hosted at Balthazar in New York City on Monday (April 20), where the fashion house’s famous fans gathered to raise a toast.

Zoe Kravitz: While it was lovely to see the actress’s softer side in this Chanel ensemble consisting of a pink cropped sweater and flirty, flared patterned skirt, I simply couldn’t get past those white pumps.

Cobie Smulders: I loved Cobie’s Chanel outing which artfully combined patterns in a painterly, watercolour top and tweed trousers. Her ‘Ladies First’ handbag put the final tongue-in-cheek zing into the look.

Michiel Huisman: He wore a navy Jack Wills suit and Haspel Clothing Hawaiian-print shirt with wife Tara Elders in an army-green dress and black shoulder bag. While it’s hard to argue with the actor’s handsome gaze, I simply don’t understand this island-inspired look on this occasion.

Sarah Hyland In Tamara Mellon – Extra

Sarah Hyland In Tamara Mellon - Extra

Sarah Hyland paid a visit to ‘Extra’ at Universal Studios Hollywood on Monday (April 20) in Universal City, California.

The ‘Modern Family’ star was effortlessly pulled together, wearing a Tamara Mellon strapless romper with a thin sheer panel at the waist to give the illusion of separates.

I love this look for its sophisticated take on springtime dressing, but what really sells this look to me are her Jimmy Choo ‘Mutya’ pointy toe pumps with their tantalizing array of asymmetrical straps and alluring colour-blocking.

Diane Kruger In Equipment – Coachella Music Festival Weekend 2

Diane Kruger In Equipment - Coachella Music Festival Weekend 2

Perhaps in a deliberate attempt to avoid the circus of weekend one, Diane Kruger and beau Joshua Jackson attended the second weekend of Coachella Music Festival on Friday (April 17) in Indio, California.

Forgoing the over-played fringe trend of weekend one, the German beauty made animal prints the focus, wearing an Equipment Lucida shirt dress rendered in richly detailed leopard print, which adds an exotic cool touch to its classic tailoring.

The look was styled with a green infantry jacket providing a buffer between her shirt dress and python Jason Wu ‘Diane’ bag created in her honour. Like Jason’s muse, the bag is both sophisticated and timelessly chic.

Valentino Aphrodite leather gladiator sandals completed her Coachella look.

You thought the majority from weekend one looked like they were in costumes, so how does Diane’s more effortless look fare?
