Alicia Keys, Madonna & Joan Smalls In Givenchy – 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Alicia Keys, Madonna & Joan Smalls In Givenchy - 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

The Keep A Child Alive Annual Black Ball held at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday (October 30) in New York City turned out to be something of a Givenchy-fest.

Alicia Keys: The pregnant host, who looks ready to pop any day soon, looked divine wearing a sumptuous black satin off-the-shoulder empire-waist Givenchy Couture gown with shimmering silver straps custom made by Riccardo Tisci, who was also in attendance at this charitable event. Matching silver and onyx drop earrings and silver bracelets accessorized her look, with a pop of pink to the lips providing the finishing touch.

Madonna: The queen of pop was in the house, donning a corseted black frock with a delicate black lace skirt from Givenchy’s Spring 2015 collection styled with her signature crucifix, lace gloves, and leather boots which it took three people to help her get into.

Joan Smalls: While brown might not be our favourite red carpet colour, who can argue that Joan Smalls doesn’t look stunning in her Givenchy Spring 2015 keyhole gown with a smattering of shimmering embellishments? Factor in that dark-berry lip and you have me at her feet saying “We are not worthy”. What a goddess.

Hailee Steinfeld In Roksanda – BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Hailee Steinfeld In Roksanda - BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Hailee Steinfeld joined a host of British actors who attended the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (October 30) in Beverly Hills, California.

The young actress wore one of my favourite designers, Roksanda, selecting a look from the designer’s Spring 2015 collection.

Angled colour-block panels in complementing shades of coral and pink and contoured for a flattering fit, I can’t help but wonder if this dress is perhaps a bit too long for Hailee.

My other thought is that by taking the dress up, the grown up elegant look she was going for would’ve become a more standard cutesy dress for the young actress.

I’m also on the fence about her all-black accessories, including a Charlotte Olympia clutch and Aquazzura lace d’Orsay pumps.

Black allows the dress to shine, but I also wish pink would have been considered, especially with the clutch.

A Week In Eddie Redmayne’s Closet

A Week In Eddie Redmayne's Closet

Keeping up with Eddie Redmayne is no easy feat as the British actor, who is in the middle of promoting his new movie, ‘The Theory Of Everything’, has been living up to his best-dressed status at every event.

He was bold in burgundy Burberry at the BAFTA Los Angeles and Britannia Awards luncheon, styling his look with contrasting blue accessories for a truly diverse touch.

He looked so very debonair at the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala decked out in a satin-lapel suit by the honouree, Tom Ford, which might just be one of his best looks of all time. I just love the contrasting black pants for a less obvious pairing.

Last night he was at it again, and by ‘it’ I mean looking impeccable in a well-tailored shawl-collared suit at the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards.

Canvassing for other well-dressed males, such as James Marsden, Daniel Radcliffe, Benedict Cumberbatch or Miles Teller, for best-dressed male of the year is almost impossible when Eddie keeps blowing them out of the water like this.

He’s on fire.

Juno Temple In Vivienne Westwood Couture – ‘Horns’ LA Premiere

Juno Temple In Vivienne Westwood Couture - 'Horns' LA Premiere

Juno Temple attended the LA premiere of ‘Horns’ held at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday (October 30) in Hollywood, California.

Opting for a part-wavy part-straight ponytail with intense wing-tipped eyes, the actress wore a signature Lilly dress from the Vivienne Westwood Couture collection.

Ending her run of all-black dresses, this pink strapless dress, which creates the most enviable silhouette, was styled with soaring heels and a small box clutch.

Were her kohl-rimmed eyes too intense for her pretty pink frock, or do the eyes help truly enhance her inner Vivienne Westwood rebel woman?

Felicity Jones In Christopher Kane – BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Felicity Jones In Christopher Kane - BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Felicity Jones attended the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (October 30) in Beverly Hills, California.

The British actress wore a Christopher Kane Spring 2015 black dress for the ceremony.

While I’m sure many will share my disappointment at the black over the periwinkle-blue option, one must concede that Felicity’s choice was very much more in tune with her I-often-favour-black elegant style.

Charming and buoyant with its fanciful tulle skirt, the actress was gracefully poised, styling her look with Cartier jewels, black ankle-strap pumps and a studded Rodo clutch for a touch of flair.

Should she have opted for the blue, or are you loving her in all black?

Padma Lakshmi In Cushnie et Ochs – 11th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Padma Lakshmi In Cushnie et Ochs - 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Padma Lakshmi attended the 9th annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball held at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday (October 30) in New York City.

I was totally bowled over by the ‘Top Chef’ TV host wearing this breathtaking Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2014 cut-out petrol-blue silk-crepe gown featuring split molded cups, a keyhole at the waist and a front split at the skirt.

Exuding the confidence and sex appeal of a modern icon, my jaw may never return to its original position.

If you were hoping to vote for Padma in her Naeem Khan gown for BDOTW, this gown will supersede it.

Note to Lea Michele and Naya Rivera: This is how you do sexy without trying so damn hard.
