Bradley Cooper In Tom Ford – SBIFF’s 2012 Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence In Film

What could be more enticing than a sexy man in a great suit?

Just about nothing, judging by the smouldering look of Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford at the 2012 Kirk Douglas Awards for Excellence in Film, held during the Santa Barbara Film Festival on Saturday in Goleta, California.

Bradley keeps things simple and quite dashing in a classic grey tone, with black shoes and crisp white shirt sans tie.

We think that the semi-casual, two-button look is perfect for Bradley.

He consistently gives off a laid-back vibe, so it makes sense that this aspect of his personality translates, even at a formal event.

Cheryl Cole In Joseph – Rose Club

Following her performance at the Jingle Bell Ball, Cheryl Cole stepped out at London’s Rose Club, with boyfriend Tre Holloway leading her through the throng of paparazzi.

See-through garb seems to be all the rage this season – and of course Cheryl is getting in on the trend.

I like her avant-garde Joseph jumpsuit, but the edgy look – with a bold, sheer, floral-lace bodice – could’ve been worn with a flesh-coloured bra.

For a pop of colour, Cheryl made sure her nails were manicured in a bright red hue – perfect for the holidays.

We almost wish that Cheryl had kept the thread of festive colour with some red heels, rather than the professional-looking nude ones.

At the end of the day, though, no one does bold club-wear like Cheryl.

Chic and sexy or tacky and trashy?

Hilary Duff In Camilla and Marc – March of Dimes Celebration Of Babies Luncheon

Blonde bombshell Hilary Duff stepped out for a good cause on Friday in Beverly Hills, California.

The sweet starlet hit the red carpet at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon in a Camilla and Marc striped mini dress styled with flashy Giuseppe Zanotti patent-leather mirror pumps.

We love how Hilary has incorporated plenty of subtle metallic flashes into her look; the shoes, nail colour, and silver cuff all tie in nicely with the sparkly stripes in the casual-yet-classy frock.

However, we wonder if Hilary could have dressed the look up a little more with a festive shrug or sleek jacket.

The beige and peach tones don’t do her glowing complexion justice, while the horizontal stripes don’t flatter in the way that other patterns might.

Taylor Swift In Maria Lucia Hohan – Grammy Nominations Concert Live!

Going back to her Tennessee roots, Taylor Swift reaffirmed her place as country-pop’s reigning princess at the Grammy Nominations Concert in Nashville last week.

The songstress looks like a dream in a lacy frock by Maria Lucia Hohan and a pair of nude peep-toe pumps.

The a-line dress complements Taylor’s willowy frame, while the lace pattern in the perfect shade of winter white is reminiscent of sweetly intricate snowflakes.

Plus, Taylor’s lush blonde bangs frame her face in a way that is both modern and vintage-inspired.

Rihanna In Balmain – ‘Wetten dass…?’

Style-savvy songstress Rihanna performed her new single, ‘Diamonds’ on the popular German TV show, ‘Wetten, dass…?’ on Saturday evening.

RiRi brought a sense of subtle sex appeal to a modern Balmain Spring 2013 ensemble which featured a tiny white cropped halter and baggy leather pants, to which she added a chunky gold Chanel belt, which was a fabulous mixture of Euro-trash opulence and haute-couture sophistication.

The midriff-baring star’s finishing touches were Manolo Blahnik killer heels.

We love that Rihanna is always true to her unique sense of style – both on-stage and off.

She is one of the few singers able to totally transform a look just by the way she wears it while performing to a captive audience.

Her short hairstyle looks especially chic paired with the softness of the outfit’s top.
