Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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?

Blake Lively wasn’t the only celeb to attend the Christian Louboutin cocktail party at Barney’s New York last night; Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were also present to fete the beloved shoe designer.

As per usual, the twins stepped onto the red carpet wearing oversized ensembles. On this occasion they wore matching all-black outfits.

Ashley went for The Row Smashton leather leggings that she teamed with a tweed jacket and a long-sleeve silk blouse.

Of course her ensemble couldn’t have been complete without a couple of black Louboutin accessories: ‘Mikarani’ tassel loafers and ‘Loubis Angels Fringe’ shoulder bag provided the finishing touches.

Mary-Kate celebrated with the designer of the hour wearing pointed-toe leopard print ‘Dahlia’ Louboutin’s booties and a matching Christian Louboutin ‘Loubis Angel’ clutch.

She also wore leggings, but she paired them with a dress that hit below the knee. She finalized her look with a fur jacket that had quilted leather sleeves.

Overall, I’m not surprised or wowed whatsoever by their outfits because they dress this way over and over again.

I would love to see them dress outside their style box just once in a while.

Gemma Arterton was present at the private viewing of ‘Amazon: An Exhibition In Aid Of Sky Rainforest Rescue’ which took place this evening in London.

The actress wore a YSL chain-embellished crepe jumpsuit from the Fall 2011 collection.

This chic number had a Grecian feel to it because of the decadent gold chain which cascades down her back before wrapping around her waist.

The top-half of this jumpsuit looks exquisite on Gemma, but I’m not sure about the pants.

They aren’t particularly flattering as they make her appear wider than she actually is, plus they are heavily creased.

Gemma decided to go with a sleek updo, which was a great call. Had her hair been down it would have taken away from the sexiness of the back.

She finished her look with a nude pout and subtle shimmery eye shadow. The only jewelry she needed were two gold rings.

Rachel Zoe would pull off this ensemble without a glitch. This outfit totally screams out her name.

You can buy Gemma’s YSL jumpsuit from
Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.

Over the weekend, Dita von Teese was in Lavazza Marquee for the Victoria Derby Day, which took place in Melbourne, Australia.

The burlesque star wore a red one-shoulder dress from her Dita Von Teese ‘Muse’ Collection.

She paired the frock with a scarlet-hued Philip Treacy hat that was adorned with a faux rose flower and feathers.

The rest of the ensemble was teamed with a matching clutch and pumps, which made her outfit feel too safe for my liking.

Her look was completed with her signature red lip and black winged liner.

The dress itself is classic and fits the vintage-loving gal well. But, frankly, the hat seems to be too over-the-top. I would have much preferred to see her with a smaller fascinator and more interesting accessories.

On Saturday, Michelle Yeoh attended the closing night ceremony of the 2011 Doha Tribeca Film Festival.

She looked beautiful wearing a strapless olive green Elie Saab Spring 2011 gown.

While the silhouette of the dress is simple, the gold accents really made it stand out.

Michelle carried a black Roger Vivier clutch with a silver embellishment, which simply seemed to clash with the gown.

I wish she had teamed her gown with a gold or even nude bag to add to the overall tone of the dress.

Her green watch makes this look feel too casual.

The rest of her gems included silver bangles and dangling chandelier earrings. Gold accessories would have been a better—albeit obvious—match.

A loose, wavy updo and natural makeup provided the finishing touches.
