Red Carpet Fashion Awards

It’s always a pleasure to see Kerry Washington at any event.

On Wednesday night, the ever-fashionable gal attended the L’Oréal Paris Legends Gala in New York City.

The actress wore a bronze full-length bias-cut Ralph Lauren Collection gown.

Looking very statuesque, she teamed the dress with gold jewelry and a textured clutch.

Personally, I wouldn’t have worn the two necklaces because the dress was already so shiny, but it provide an interesting contrast.

I do think the texture and colour of the dress is quite nice, but I just can’t seem to fully love it. While the look isn’t terrible, it’s just not quite amazing either.

She went for old Hollywood-style waves; a smoky eye and a nude lip completed the look.

Olivia Palermo strolled down the red carpet hand-in-hand with her longtime boyfriend Johannes Huebl when she attended the Princess Grace Awards Foundation Gala earlier this week in New York City.

To celebrate the event the socialite seemed to channel her inner Grace Kelly wearing a peach-colored Rochas dress, which she teamed with a matching Giorgio Armani fur stole.

While I usually like anything Olivia wears, to me, this felt a bit too ‘little girl playing dress up in mom’s closet’. The outfit was very matchy-matchy and the dress fits poorly around the bust.

She kept up the monochromatic look my pairing the ensemble with Charlotte Olympia pumps. Olivia smartly kept her jewelry simple—yellow diamond drop earrings and gold bracelets both by Carrera y Carrera.

Olivia opted for a navy clutch – which kills the look – a simple updo and natural makeup provided the finishing touches.

Do you think this ensemble is too costumey or just right?

Isabel Marant ‘Dicker’ ankle booties have been worn by a bevy of beauties—we’re talking Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hilary Rhoda, Kate Bosworth and Katie Holmes.

These boots have been a complete hit because they are one part chic and one part edgy.

The suede shoes have become one of the must-have items of casual footwear for fall. But the great thing about them is that they can also be worn during the spring and summer with cutoff shorts like Katie, or a floral dress like Hilary.

The coveted Isabel Marant booties will set you back $615. That is if you can still find them in stores because most of the shops are sold out.

Fortunately, a similar and cheaper version by Steve Madden was created.

The ‘Pembrook’ booties cost only $129.

However, you may notice that the wallet-friendly design has a less pointy toe and lacks the chunky heels as well, which is what gives them that tough-chick vibe.

Jessica Chastain was the first to don this black lace-sleeved velvet Emilio Pucci Fall 2011 dress with a white collar for the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala which took place at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York City back in May.

The actress teamed the long-sleeve frock with a pair of simple black slingback Christian Louboutin heels and diamond drop earrings.

She styled her hair in a side swept updo, kohl rimmed eyes and a nude lip completed her look.

On Tuesday night, Alexa Chung wore the same dress to the Emilio Pucci new boutique launch at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.

While the dress fits the gal’s personality (and style) more, she teamed the frock with chunky T-strap pumps that made her ensemble look too gothic.

As always, her barely there makeup and casual tresses completed her look.

This time around Jessica’s simple styling wins it for me.

Smoking flats à la Hugh Hefner are making their mark as the flats to wear this fall. However, there’s one particular pair that has caught the attention of some of the most fashionable ladies. Enter the Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ Flats.

Katy Perry, Alexa Chung and Sarah Jessica Parker have all been spotted wearing these adorable feline flats recently. While we would expect quirky Alexa and Katy to sport them, it came as a bit of a surprise to see SJP wearing them, too.

The black velvet pair has a gold heel, which I think would look great with a pair of skinny jeans. Although I wouldn’t have thought to wear these during the nighttime, Alexa’s red-hot Valentino dress actually looks quite nicely teamed with the shoes.

If you want to step into the wild side a little further, these kitty shoes also come in a leopard print.

However, we prefer the black versions; which do you prefer?

You can buy these cute Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ Flats from Net-A-Porter.com.
