Ashanti In Michael Costello - 2014 BET Awards

Ashanti hit the red carpet of the 2014 BET Awards last night (June 29) at the Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles.

The singer opted for a long-sleeved, white, lace-embellished Michael Costello gown and black and gold Tom Ford shoes.

The dress is beautiful, and right on trend, and while it looked flawless from the waist down on Ashanti’s hourglass figure, I just can’t get past the cut-outs on the top.

This type of cut-out really only works on someone small-busted, and Ashanti’s cleavage looks like it could escape at any moment.

Side-parted blonde waves and subtle but flawless makeup take an old Hollywood approach, which Ashanti would have nailed if it weren’t for the bosom situation.

FORWARD and Cushnie Et Ochs Dinner Party

FORWARD and Cushnie Et Ochs hosted an intimate dinner party last night (June 26) at Gjelina restaurant in Venice, California.

Ashley Madekwe: The actress and fashion blogger wore a long-sleeved Cushnie Et Ochs bordeaux silk crepe dress from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection with nude Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals. The color of the sophisticated dress looked beautiful against Ashley’s skintone, and long, loose waves, practically non-existent makeup and a white mani/pedi rounded out her perfectly effortless approach to style.

Jamie Chung: The actress opted for a teal Cushnie Et Ochs halter dress from the Fall 2014 collection. Like Ashley, Jamie paired her look with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, and she also rocked the on-trend white mani/pedi. The geometric bodice of the dress is dramatic and editorial, but looks slightly big on the petite star–a bit of tailoring might have served her well. An undone pony and barely there makeup completed the look.

Cody Horn: The actress went with a look from the Spring 2014 Cushnie Et Ochs collection, and the black embossed python lambskin sliced dress made quite an impact. The dress looked beautiful against her toned figure, but by only revealing small slices of skin, was classy, not overt. Simple black sandals and a black clutch were perfect accessories, so as not to take attention away from the dress, and her effortless hair style and ‘does she or doesn’t she’ makeup continued the trend of ‘easy does it’ styling.

Keira Knightley In Prada - Out In New York City

Keira Knightley was snapped while out in New York City on the way to a press conference for her new film ‘Begin Again’.

The actress looked demure in a pleated, light blue Prada dress, a stone-encrusted Prada clutch and silver metallic Prada shoes.

Diamond studs, barely there makeup (partially hidden here by her shades) and a simple chignon accented with a hairline twist are the perfect compliments to this lovely daytime look.

The entire ensemble is perfectly Keira, and I love everything from the ankles up, but somehow the shoes feel a bit off to me.

Do you agree that there may have been a better shoe option for this look, or are you completely smitten with the whole outfit?

Alessandra Ambrosio In Valentino - GREAT Britain Reception

Alessandra Ambrosio attended the GREAT Britain Reception welcoming Prince Harry to Brazil on June 25 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The Victoria’s Secret model wore a long-sleeved white Valentino dress from the Fall 2013 collection with white strappy sandals and a Valentino bag.

The structure of the dress along with its lacey overlay give it plenty of visual appeal, and it shows off Alessandra’s enviable legs perfectly. I’m also loving how the white shoes pop against her brown skin.

An easy side braid, glowing skin and pink lips complete the model-worthy turn in front of the camera.

Keri Russell In Monique Lhuillier - 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' LA Premiere

Keri Russell hit the red carpet at the premiere of her new film ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ yesterday (June 26) at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in Los Angeles.

To mark the occasion, the actress wore a cropped top and flared skirt from Monique Lhuillier’s Resort 2015 collection.

The structured shape, cropped silhouette and black/white color palette are all right on trend, and her black strapped sandals and simple Jacob & Co. jewels were excellent styling choices.

I absolutely love this look on Keri, and messy waves and classic makeup fall firmly into Keri’s general understated approach to red carpet events.

Nieves Alvarez In Blumarine - MAC Makeup Catwalk

Nieves Alvarez struck a fierce pose at the M.A.C. Makeup Catwalk held at the Italian Embassy yesterday (June 26) in Madrid, Spain.

The model wore a black leather pencil skirt and a sequined, geometric white tee from Blumarine’s Spring 2014 collection. She paired the look with sexy Zuhair Muard sandals and a black Alexander McQueen clutch.

Despite the simple ‘pencil skirt and tee’ nature of this ensemble, the fabrication takes it to the next level, and as usual, Nieves looks superb.

Her smokey eyes, red lip and manicure and lust-worthy blowout complete Nieves’s sultry-but-chic look.
