Kristen Wiig In Martin Grant – ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ Sydney Premiere

Kristen Wiig In Martin Grant - ‘Anchorman 2 The Legend Continues’ Sydney Premiere

Kristen Wiig continued her stay Down Under with an appearance at the Sydney premiere of ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ on Saturday.

The actress joined Kirsten Dunst on the red carpet, selecting a black, wide-leg Martin Grant jumpsuit with Victorian-esque buttons down the bodice for the occasion. This ensemble was a far cry from her sunnier J. Mendel choice days earlier at ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ premiere, but certainly stayed true to Kristen’s long-standing penchant for jumpsuits.

Christian Louboutin peep-toe shoes, chunky Saint Laurent gold cuff, and black belt cinched at the waist provided minimalist flare, while her darker lip colour gave the look its finish.

I can’t say I hate this look, but I’m not quite enamoured of it either. It’s just nothing to write home about.

Agree or disagree?

Olivia Palermo In Burberry Prorsum – ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Special New York Screening

Olivia Palermo In Burberry Prorsum - ‘Mandela Long Walk To Freedom’ Special New York Screening

Olivia Palermo attended a special screening of ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City last night.

The socialite showed faint signs of finally coming back to her styling senses, although it’s not totally clear if she’s ready to resume her role of “consummately well-dressed.”

In true Olivia fashion, she dressed in a mix of patterns and textures, wearing a black-buttoned trench coat with a patterned collar over a black, sequin-covered Burberry Prorsum Resort 2014 skirt and black cardigan with white buttons.

A quirky black-and-silver flower necklace, black boots, and her go-to dewy makeup and middle-parted hair completed the look.

Is this outfit a reflection of the Olivia we know and love — or is she still doing a little too much and too little all at once?

Laura Vandervoort In BCBG Max Azia – Tommy Hilfiger And P.S. ARTS celebrate the Cameron Silver Vintage Capsule Collection

Laura Vandervoort In BCBG Max Azia  -  Tommy Hilfiger And PS ARTS celebrate the Cameron Silver Vintage Capsule Collection

Laura Vandervoort celebrated the launch of Cameron Silver’s vintage capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger at the latter’s flagship store in West Hollywood, California on Thursday.

The actress looked slick in a white BCBG Max Azria suit, consisting of a boxy lapel-adorned blazer and ankle-cut skinny trousers.

All it took to keep this chic outfit on point was a series of understated accessories — in this case, a pair of green Danielle Queller earrings, a textured Edie Parker clutch, and peachy pointy-toe pumps.

Dark eye makeup and a sleek, straight chop finished things off nicely.

This menswear-inspired look is a win for me, much in part to the trifecta of sex appeal, femininity, and a powerful edge.

What do you think?

Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual ‘Power Lunch for Women’

Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual Power Lunch for Women

On Friday, Citymeals-On-Wheels hosted its 27th annual Power Lunch for Women at The Plaza Hotel in New York City — and as is to be expected, the stars in attendance dressed the part of “ladies who lunch.”

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host chose a nude-coloured Roland Mouret sheath with a simple black bow-tie sash at the waist. While cut at the knee, her cap-sleeved number showed off ample cleavage via a low boxed-out neckline — it’s certainly a sexier daytime silhouette, but one that she pulled off without a hitch. A gold pendant necklace and embellished pumps completed the look.

Brooke Shields: Just two days after Victoria Beckham wore her own tri-colour Fall 2013 dress, Brooke Shields stepped out in the same exact frock across the pond, styling it with black pumps, a textured black clutch, and gold cuff. While I love the bright pattern, this dress wasn’t the most flattering choice.

Debra Messing: The actress stepped out in a long-sleeved black dress with silver-band details at the waist and bodice. Her futuristic fashion statement — or attempt at one — was accessorized with large earrings, black clutch, black heels, and a silver smokey eye.

Knee-length hems aside, these looks ran the gamut. Have a favourite, or is this power lunch a fashion miss?

Juliette Lewis In Reem Acra – The Weinstein Company’s Holiday Party

Juliette Lewis In Reem Acra - The Weinstein Company's Holiday Party

Juliette Lewis attended the Weinstein Company’s holiday party at RivaBella in West Hollywood, California on last Thursday evening.

The actress selected a white Reem Acra Resort 2014 dress with contrasting black lace cap sleeves, which she paired with H. Stern drop earrings, a fuchsia Amanda Pearl clutch, and strappy black Jimmy Choo sandals.

A berry-coloured lip, rosy cheeks, and swept-back hair completed the look.

While I don’t think it’s one of her looks as of late, Juliette has proved once again that her style has evolved into something much more elegant and composed.

Are you enjoying her “grown-up” style, or are you wishing for a wild-side comeback?

Karolina Kurkova In Fendi – 2013 ‘Fashion For Kids’ Insight Charity Fashion Show

Karolina Kurkova In Fendi - 2013 'Fashion For Kids' Insight Charity Fashion Show

Karolina Kurkova returned to the Czech Republic — her home country — for the ‘Fashion For Kids’ charity fashion show, held on Monday evening in Prague.

The model showed off her famously long legs in a structural white Fendi Spring 2014 minidress with studded embellishments.

With no other statement jewels or bag to speak of, she rounded out the look with black-and-silver Fendi platform heels and sleek hair.

While it’s hard to fault this ensemble — Karolina does look amazing — I’m not so crazy about the shoes. I would have liked to have seen her wear a sexy (read: strappier) heel instead.

Thoughts?

Relaunch Of The Zoe Report Dinner Party

Relaunch Of The Zoe Report Dinner Party

Rachel Zoe hosted a dinner party to fête the relaunch of The Zoe Report at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday. The occasion drew an intimate crew of Hollywood’s PYTs dressed in — what else? — Rachel Zoe’s wares.

Holland Roden: The ‘Teen Wolf’ actress wore a Rachel Zoe Fall 2013 ruffle-hem dress with a white studded jacket from the designer’s Spring 2014, which she styled with nude Rupert Sanderson ‘Marquita’ sandals and a peach-coloured lip.

Lyndsy Fonseca: Wearing a two-tone Rachel Zoe Resort 2014 blazer and a coordinating black top and shorts set from Rachel Zoe Spring 2014, the ‘Nikita’ starlet tried her hand at tuxedo-inspired cocktail dressing — with moderate success, in my opinion. There’s something a little off about the proportions here; perhaps a more fitted blazer would have been better for this look. Lyndsy accessorized with a black clutch and orange-and-black ankle-strap pumps to finish.

Rachel Zoe: The woman of the hour — and due with her second child any day now — wore a black-and-white creation from her Resort 2014 line. She paired the look with her signature kohl-rimmed eyes, blunt bangs, and vintage Valentino earrings.

Molly Sims: The star selected a dusty pink Rachel Zoe Spring 2014 leather dress, styling it with black tights, black pumps, and long waves. There was nothing particularly offensive or standout about this look — a more dynamic shoe choice would have spruced things up.

Was this dinner party a fashionable hit or miss?
