Ahna O’Reilly In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘She’s Funny That Way’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Ahna O'Reilly In Dolce & Gabbana - 'She's Funny That Way' Venice Film Festival Premiere

Ahna O’Reilly attended the ‘She’s Funny That Way’ premiere during the 2014 Venice Film Festival on Friday (August 29) in Venice, Italy.

Every inch of me wanted to get excited about her white embroidered Dolce & Gabbana strapless gown with a fold-over bodice, but I couldn’t help but want more from this outing.

By Ahna’s standards this is quite forgettable. She’s had many festival moments which trump this.

While the makeup is lovely, the hair is a bit all over the place, lacking in the gracefulness we expect from her.

Even the reverse necklace and gold clutch can’t save this look.

Anna Mouglalis In Chanel & Chanel Couture – ‘Il Giovane Favoloso’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Anna Mouglalis In Chanel & Chanel Couture - 'Il Giovane Favoloso' Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Anna Mouglalis graced the red carpet at Venice Film Festival to promote her latest movie, ‘Il Giovane Favoloso’, on Monday (September 1) in Venice, Italy.

The French actress and Chanel ambassadress wore two very different Chanel looks.

Photocall: Keeping it simple, Anna wore a Chanel Spring 2014 asymmetric navy, black and white tweed jacket styled with black jeans and lace-up shoes. I’m kinda digging this shabby-chic look.

Premiere: Anna dialled up the glamour for the premiere later that same evening wearing a Chanel Fall 2014 Couture neoprene off-white dress embroidered with gold and silver scrolling. The dress made me swoon – she really does fulfil her ambassadorial role well; however, the clutch and shoes are a tad uninspiring.

Get The Look: Dascha Polanco’s Emmy Awards Ethereal Beauty Look

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsUnlike her character on ‘Orange Is The New Black,’ Dascha Polanco sparkled on the Emmy Awards red carpet. While her goddess-like Johanna Johnson flowing gown was an inspiration for celebrity makeup artist, Lucky Smyler, the look was all about highlighting Dascha’s natural features.

Luminous skin, cool iridescent tones and highlights were essential characteristics in Dascha’s ethereal Emmy’s beauty look. Lucky took the opportunity to accentuate Dascha’s beautiful eyes and skin and used unexpected tones of light mint.

Here’s how you can achieve this glamorous and whimsical look yourself:

SKIN
Prep: To achieve that radiant creamy canvas, Lucky prepped Dascha’s skin with SheaMoisture Misting Toner and followed with SheaMoisture Primer, evenly applying it with a foundation brush.

Foundation: The goal was to create a smooth and creamy even finish. Lucky achieved that by applying SheaMoisture Sheer Liquid Foundation in Yasuni Honey with a dampened sponge and gently stippled the product along the skin. He proceeded by sweeping SheaMoisture Concealer in Snowdonia Fawn along her under eyes with his ring finger.

Set: He continued by sculpting the face with Color Correcting Contouring and Highlighting Palette in Medium Light, neatly contouring the face along the hairline, cheekbones and jaw area. To lock in the freshness and dewy quality of the skin, Lucky applied Yala Golden Pressed Powder to skin.

Finish (Glow): To achieve that glowing ethereal look, Lucky illuminated the skin with SheaMoisture Illuminating Powder in Cinnamon Ceylon and Mandalay Dusk. He enhanced the previous contouring and applied a final dusting of SheaMoisture Annecy Maroon Mineral Blush along the apples of the cheeks.

EYES
Prep: To prep the lids, Lucky dusted SheaMosture Eyeshadow in Cecilia on the lid and brow bone. The pale tone of eye shadow served as a highlight and framing shade for the additional colors.

Color: Lucky used a damp shadow brush to apply a mixture of the base shade and Deysi Eyeshadow to the lids. Due to the iridescent quality of the shadows, a dampened brush allowed for a more intense pigment upon application.

Finish: He framed Dascha’s eyes with a swipe of black liquid liner and followed with generous layers of a volumizing and lengthening mascara to her lashes.

LIPS
Prep: To achieve a pillow soft lip, Lucky exfoliated, moisturized and primed Dascha’s lips with SheaMoisture Lip Exfoliator.

Color: Once the lips were primed, Lucky applied SheaMoisture Roberta Lipstick Crayon and blotted. This allowed the color to set as more of a stain rather than flat color and followed with a final coat of the same product.

Finish: To further highlight her lips, Lucky finished with a layer of SheaMoisture Lipgloss in Rosie.

Angelina Jolie Marries Brad Pitt In Atelier Versace

Angelina Jolie Atelier Versace wedding gown

Proving that as a celebrity you can indeed lead a private life, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally tied the knot in secret on Saturday (August 23).

People.com and Hello Magazine hold the exclusive, but here I present the sketch of the gorgeous Atelier Versace creation designed by Donatella Versace.

The one-of-a-kind custom-made Atelier Versace white silk satin gown gathered at the bust with an elongated train was detailed with the embroidered drawings of her children, which were also reproduced on the silk veil.

It’s nice that she allowed her kids to be part of the occasion, even though it did look like doodling on her train.

She accessorized her gown wearing a pair of white Versace silk satin pumps.

Congrats to the happy couple.

Laura Whitmore In Holly Fulton – 2014 Scottish Fashion Awards

Laura Whitmore In Holly Fulton - 2014 Scottish Fashion Awards

Laura Whitmore attended the Scottish Fashion Awards held in London, England on Monday (September 1).

The TV presenter, who is a red carpet regular, wore a Holly Fulton Fall 2014 dress.

The colourful frock featuring sheer organza panels was also accented with embellished detailing around the sweetheart neckline.

It looks like the sheer-hem trend is making a return to the red carpet – are you rejoicing?

I can’t say I am in love with this dress. Sheer hemline aside, it’s not Laura’s usual speed. It looks too big and a tad frumpy.
