Katharine McPhee In Theyskens’ Theory - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Katharine McPhee strutted her stuff in style on the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards in Califorina on Sunday.

She turned on the sex appeal in a black satin Theyskens’ Theory Spring 2013 gown.

The ‘Smash’ star accented her seductive ensemble with subtle bangles, a structured Oroton ‘Society’ clutch, and sexy sky-high heels with a clear front strap.

I love that Katharine is stepping away from her wholesome ‘American Idol’ roots and flaunting her fabulous figure.

A high messy bun, nude lips and smoky eye make this look a true stunner.

Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Glowing expectant mother Kristen Bell looked radiant on the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, on Sunday held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.

Kristen flattered her lovely baby bump in an ethereal Jenny Packham Spring 2013 gown.

To highlight the subtle almost-lavender hue of her gauzy gown, as well as the breathtaking beading on the gown’s bodice, Kristen rocked a shimmering silver clutch and sweetly feminine braid-adorned ponytail.

I think that Kristen is taking maternity chic to a whole new level with this look.

Not only does the colour and material of the dress suit her perfectly, but it highlights her new shape without making maternity the focal point.

I’m sure the Duchess will be delighted to know that her favourite designer Jenny Packham does maternity gowns.

Lucy Liu In Carolina Herrera - 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Bringing a sense of spring to the red carpet, Lucy Liu combatted Los Angeles’ unusually chilly temperatures at the 2013 Golden Globes Awards on Sunday.

The beautiful actress floated down the carpet in a floral print Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2013 ball gown.

Lucy’s gown not only infuses a sense of natural elegance into the often quite formal carpet at the Globes, but also serves to highlight the petite actress’ tiny waist.

To accent her sweet frock, Lucy donned subtle earrings, and a single stunning green cocktail ring.

I love that Lucy opted for a more relaxed hairstyle, sporting a feminine fishtail braid over one shoulder rather than a fussy updo.

Lucy’s locks are perfectly suited for a trendy side braid, so the overall effect when paired with her princess-worthy gown is simply breathtaking.

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better Kirsten Dunst, Huo Siyan or Alice Englert

Back in July, Kirsten Dunst hit the opening of Louis Vuitton’s latest boutique in Paris in a look from – what else? – Louis Vuitton’s 2013 resort collection. The actress paired the slightly casual maxi dress with a gold LV clutch, light makeup, and soft blonde waves.

The retro look of this dress is a tough one to pull off, but Kirsten got everything right with the accessory and styling choices.

Fellow actresses Alice Englert and Huo Siyan, however, didn’t show Kirsten’s flare for rocking the flower-child maxi look when they both donned the same dress this past fall.

Huo Siyan overshot her ensemble by copying the runway version of the look to the letter with a LV cardigan and blazer, which she wore to the L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards in Beijing back in October.

She let the dress and layered pieces overwhelm her small frame. The result was too matchy-matchy and lacking any real sense of sophistication or high style.

Alice took to the red carpet in LA during early November for the screening of ‘Ginger and Rosa’ at AFI FEST 2012 and simply went too minimal. The dress looked too casual without any luxe touches or sense of sparkle.

The clear winner in this battle of the patterned maxi dresses is Kirsten Dunst.

WWIB Zhang & Rita Ora

Zhang Ziyi sported a pristine ensemble from Mugler’s Fall 2012 collection on the red carpet back in September while attending a press conference for ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ in Beijing, China.

The petite actress let the edgy look shine by pairing the peplum-adorned dress with sky-high Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps, minimal – yet still shimmering – Cindy Chao jewelry, and a sleek hairstyle. Plus, she really emphasized her tiny waist, using the structure of the dress to her advantage.

Singer Rita Ora donned the same futuristic look back in November while posing on the red carpet for the MOBO Awards in Liverpool, England.

While Rita definitely strikes a stylish chord with her red lips and matching Sergio Rossi clutch, she falls short with her accessory choices. I find that pure white looks tend to feel more sophisticated when paired with silver, so Rita’s flashy gold bangles and Dsquared² heels seem a bit on the distracting side.

Ziyi wins this Mugler mash-up thanks to her understated accoutrements.

The funny and fabulous actress Elizabeth Banks channelled the ‘Mad Men’ look on the red carpet for the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies in Beverly Hills, California on Friday evening.

Dressed in an eggplant-hued dress by Trina Turk, the actress looked seasonally stylish thanks to her dress’s subtle, vintage-inspired print and the sex appeal of her classic black peep-toes.

Elizabeth’s soft updo and minimal accessories really highlight the old-world elegance of her aubergine-tinted frock.

We would love to have seen a neat belt cinch Elizabeth’s tiny waist, but overall this look is a total win.

The best part? Elizabeth is totally chic for a great cause!
