2015 ELLE Women In Hollywood Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 ELLE Women In Hollywood Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 22nd annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards were hosted last night (Oct. 19) at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, California, where ELLE’s eight November cover stars, including Dakota Johnson, Kate Winslet, Ava DuVernay, Amy Schumer, Salma Hayek, Carey Mulligan, Gena Rowlands and Alicia Vikander, were honoured. There many other influential lovelies in attendance joining the cover girls, as well.

Dakota Johnson: As one of the honorees, Dakota maintained her minimalistic-chic approach in a black Calvin Klein Collection gown. Shame about the creases, but it was still a sensually glam, dressing gown moment for the young star. However, it did leave me feeling as if something was missing.

Miranda Kerr: Like Carey Mulligan, Miranda was a beauty in baby blue. The model wore Calvin Klein Collection that fused the soft hue with masculine tailoring and sexy, skin-baring lines. The belly-button-hiding belt across her enviable abs was perhaps used in an effort for a bit more event-appropriate coverage, even if it was a bit bizarre. Matching Christian Louboutin ‘Dorissima’ shoes, a Louboutin ‘Fiocco Box’ clutch, Swarovski by Miranda Kerr collection jewels, and a vivid red lip pulled the look together.

Zoe Saldana
: Dressed in tailored sophistication, the actress wore a fall-inspired Calvin Klein Collection outfit with Christian Louboutin Toeless Muse pumps. I only wish her hair had mirrored the sleek factor with a simple bun.

Sarah Hyland: Mixing her Armani mannish cropped trousers with a snazzy, sequin top, Sarah ensured her glitz was appropriately balanced. A red lip and tucked-under ’do added a vintage allure to the look.

Amy Schumer: As an honoree, the funny girl played the ultimate lady in red. I don’t have an issue with the simply elegant lines of the Calvin Klein Collection gown. But the look would have benefited greatly from a simple ponytail and some jewels. There is a sense of nakedness as currently presented.

Kiernan Shipka: Continuing to impress with her youthful, style-forward aesthetic, the starlet showed off a Calvin Klein frock with interesting textural components. I love how effortlessly she wore this mod look, keeping her styling streamlined so the quirky, classy beauty of the dress could shine.

Bella Heathcote: Opting to not wear Calvin Klein, she took a Thakoon Spring 2016 look out for a spin. She lost me from the waist down as the glittery skirt was a rather brash contrast to the daintier illusion top. The dark pumps were likewise a heavy finish.

Ashley Madekwe: Her Calvin Klein Collection romper was both playful and punk with oversized studded leather accents and plenty of tough-girl-chic attitude.

Nina Dobrev: Showing her softer side, she wore a ballet pink Calvin Klein Collection frock that was beautifully feminine. While I loved her sandals with the dress, and could even find favour with the dark oxblood lip for its dramatic finish, I do wish her hair had been worn in soft waves instead of a towering bun.

Nikki Reed: In an effort to edge up the bridal-inspired, lace doily design of this Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 dress, Nikki accessorized with a Lee Savage clutch and galactic silver Bionda Castana platforms. It didn’t exactly come together.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead
: Sleek and moody with a hint of sparkle, the actress wore a Halston Heritage skirt with a burgundy bodysuit paired with Tamara Mellon sandals and an Edie Parker clutch.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum
: While I wanted to love this winter-white David Koma dress, the constricting, luggage-strap black buckles were a bit of an eyesore. Like Mary Elizabeth, Jenna wore Tamara Mellon’s modern update on the strappy sandal.

America Ferrera: Electric-blue is always one of my preferred shades on the red carpet, but this Novis ensemble wasn’t my favourite. For one thing, the lipstick-red handbag, nails, and Kurt Geiger shoes were an odd match. Perhaps if she had also worn the shade on her lips, a sense of cohesiveness would have existed.

Zoe Kravitz: With all the rocker edge we expect plus the lighter note of its ecru hue, this Calvin Klein Collection harness design was stunningly and intricately woven with metal embellished detail. It was likely a heavy outfit to wear, but I do wish the skirt did not seem as if it was sagging so much.

Kate Winslet: Absolutely impeccable in a custom Badgley Mischka dress, Kate was the epitome of polished perfection in this design that fit her like a glove. I love the bold blue accents at the bodice for an understated yet powerful finish.

Shailene Woodley: The statuesque star flaunted her legs for days in a Calvin Klein Collection black-and-white asymmetrical jumpsuit that could have used a bolder earring or a bangle—and a new hairstyle.

Salma Hayek
: A golden girl for the day, she wore a Saint Laurent metallic patterned frock with clunkier, gold platform heels. I will have to admire the look from the ankles up.

Judy Greer: All the happy vibrancy of this colourfully patterned L.K. Bennett dress came to an abrupt halt with Judy’s hair and makeup. I just wanted the liveliness of the frock reflected in a peppier ’do and a small ounce of lipstick.

2015 ELLE Women In Hollywood Awards Red Carpet Roundup 7

Jaime King: This Calvin Klein Collection dress simply had me at hello, what with its midnight-blue sophistication and slightly quirky, style-forward sheer hem detail, all of which Jaime wore with the utmost grace and modernity.

Zoey Deutch
: This look was feminine and fun all rolled into one vintage-mod Christian Dior frock paired with polka-dot pumps.

Teresa Palmer: The actress took this leather-studded Calvin Klein Collection gown and wore it at its vampiest. First of all, I wanted to cut the fringe off at the bottom.

Who made an impression on you?

    Wow, quite overwhelmed by this, but more wins than misses here. The only one that truly stands out is the very rare miss that constitutes Ashley’s dress. She can do so much better!

  2. SilentVisitor October 22, 2015 at 11:56 #

    Shailene, Kate and Dakota

  3. Laura October 22, 2015 at 03:55 #

    Miranda looks hot but from a fashion point of view it’s a big no from me. The belt around her bare waist looks corny and try hard. That baby blue colour in a shiny fabric always looks tacky.

  4. Amy October 21, 2015 at 08:41 #

    Zoey, Nina, Ashley & Kiernan are my fave.
    I just don’t get the weird belt on Miranda, great abs but the belt is ruining a good suit.
    Jenna’s outfit looks so constricting, poor thing

  5. Rachel October 21, 2015 at 08:26 #

    Shailene and Sarah look great, Kate Winslet could be in my list with other shoes.
    The worst by far would be Miranda’s whole outfit (specially that cheap top), America’s skirt and Salma.

    I’m often surprised when Nina’s looks garner praise – her choices usually seem ridiculous to me, a mix of too old or too young pieces, random hair, very mix and match. Very Forever 21 styling.

  7. Nadine October 21, 2015 at 03:26 #

    Kiernan Shipka.

  8. CreoleLady October 20, 2015 at 22:53 #

    Zoe Saldana, Kiernan Shipka and Jaime King for me. Also love Judy Greer’s dress.

  9. Phoenix October 20, 2015 at 22:45 #

    Surprisingly I’m really loving Mirandas look. The color is gorgeous. And its interesting to look at.
    Kiernan also looks great. And Shailene.

  10. Chris October 20, 2015 at 21:44 #

    Shailene looks amazing! She might be my favorite of the bunch.
    I love Nina’s look, even the hair kinda works for me on the occasion… I think?!
    And I have to admit, while it’s again nothing really new and the styling isn’t the most exciting, Kate looks pretty gorgeous; I do like it, it all works.

  11. Aocc October 20, 2015 at 21:43 #

    Zoey, Kiernan and America.

  12. Ellen October 20, 2015 at 21:43 #

    Kate Winsley (always) and Sarah Hyland. That’s it for this go-around.

  13. Caroline October 20, 2015 at 21:17 #

    Absolutely ADORE Miranda Kerr. Definitely my favorite. I also love Kiernan Shipka, Nina Dobrev, Kate Winslet and Shailenne Woodley.

  14. Nicky October 20, 2015 at 21:06 #

    Probably the best Shailene has ever looked. My favorite is Kiernan.

  15. Sarah October 20, 2015 at 21:01 #

    Sarah Hyland, Jaime and Zoey (although Krysten Ritter did it better in a very similar Dior suit dress a couple years ago).

  16. Ariya October 20, 2015 at 21:00 #

    Zoe, Sarah, Kiernan, Mary Elizabeth and Zoey D look chic and cool.
    Nina is looking quite pretty and I love her makeup.
    Nikki and America’s outfits make them look boxy. Proper fit and styling could have elevated the looks.
    And this might be a personal best for Amy. She desperately needs some jewelry but that make up is pretty amazing for her.

  17. meme October 20, 2015 at 20:55 #

    Miranda looks ridiculous and Zoe looks like a crochet project gone awry. Jenna Tatum looks like a suitcase. I love Dakota’s look…simple and chic.

    • julyol1972 October 20, 2015 at 22:46 #

      I totally agree that Miranda looks stupid! From the satin pillowcase tube top to the ridiculous belly band monitor. Ugh, I loathe everything about that outfit!

      Love Ashley and Kate’s with Sarah Hyland getting an Honorable Mention!

  18. Yeliz October 20, 2015 at 20:36 #

    Kiernan, Sarah, Nina, Mary Elizabeth, Kate and Zoey are my favourites of the bunch.

  19. Bailey October 20, 2015 at 20:31 #

    I would like Nina’s look more if she had worn her hair down. Sarah’s look is simple, but I like it. Shailene looks amazing in that jumpsuit, but I do agree a chunky bracelet would’ve been the perfect accessory and maybe a new hairstyle.

  20. Evita October 20, 2015 at 20:27 #

    Pretty much everyone at this event looked good but I have to give an honorable mention to Amy,I loved her her in this dress,very JLaw Oscars 2011

  21. Alina October 20, 2015 at 20:21 #

    Sarah Hyland and Kiernan Shipka are my favourites here.

  22. sanette October 20, 2015 at 20:20 #

    Love Nina’s and Sarah’s looks. I think I’d get on board with Miranda’s look if she wore it without the belt.

  23. pinksugar October 20, 2015 at 20:14 #

    Miranda looks vulgar. What an odd and tacky choice for this event. Kate, Nikki, & Nina are my faves of the bunch.

  24. Iva October 20, 2015 at 20:05 #

    Miranda, Kiernan and Shailene.

  25. Eva October 20, 2015 at 20:02 #

    Miranada Kerr all the way. I remember SJP wore something similar in one of the episodes of sex and the city way back.

  26. Christine October 20, 2015 at 20:00 #

    Love Miranda, Zoe, Jaime and Zoey looks.

    • Christine October 20, 2015 at 20:28 #

      Oh and Nina! She looks beautiful!

      And Zoe as in Saldana

  27. Frankie October 20, 2015 at 19:58 #

    They all look amazing but Miranda Kerr is killing it!
