Elle 1

Many more fashionable femmes joined the crush of glamour gals at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration, hosted yesterday night at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California.

Melissa McCarthy: One of ELLE’s November cover girls, Melissa took a trendsetting approach in a Calvin Klein ensemble, featuring a black leather-look top and pants and a white bolero jacket, to which she paired a Rauwolf ombre-effect clutch, studded sandals and a few gold cocktail rings. A pompadour-inspired ‘do topped off her edgier entrance.

Emilia Clarke: The ‘Game of Thrones’ starlet was polished in a sheer effect, nude Calvin Klein Spring 2013 frock, cinched in with a black belt. Nude sandals with an embellished metallic heel added an intriguing, style-forward note, while her wispy updo and soft rose-toned makeup were just plain pretty.

Gia Coppola: Also in Calvin Klein, the director-screenwriter skipped a dress in favour of separates including a wrap-front top and cropped black pants, adding some shine via gold sandals and a bit of colour via a berry lip lacquer.

Elle 2

Meagan Good: The actress was one of many in white at the event, debuting a plunging Marchesa jumpsuit, edged in playful pompom embellishment. Brian Atwood shoes, a silver Matthew Campbell Laurenza clutch, and a smattering of Ocnarf Sairutsa, ELAHN and Amrapali jewels, not to mention a bold crimson lip, accessorized her look.

Jessica Pare: The ‘Mad Men’ actress matched her pink lippie to her bubblegum-hued Calvin Klein figure-hugging frock, which proved a striking contrast to her raven-haired locks. Blush-coloured sandals and a darker, ombre clutch finished the ensemble.

Katerina Graham: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ star made quite the statement in another of the evening’s white ensembles. Her OLIMA cropped top and pleated skirt would have been head-turning enough, but she upped the ante even more with a high top-knot, holographic Topshop sandals and one of the most interesting necklaces I have seen in some time. The neon-green Sarah Angold Spring 2013 laser-cut acrylic creation reminded me of an artsy slinky.

Eva Amurri Martino: I couldn’t get behind the nude clutch and pumps that paired with Eva’s deep fuchsia, embroidered Tory Burch dress.

Erika Christensen: The ‘Parenthood’ actress wore an Erdem frock in one of the label’s signature floral prints, featuring a black shirt overlay skirt. Black ankle-strap pumps finished the look with a sophisticated touch, although I still felt like something was missing here.

Melonie Diaz: Everything was coming up flowers for Melonie, too, in her all-purple ensemble featuring an embossed jumper and A-line skirt. Chunky, black sandals wouldn’t have been my choice pair. An Emm Kuo clutch completed her look.
