Angela Simmons In Valery Kovalska – 2014 BET Awards

Angela Simmons In Valery Kovalska - 2014 BET Awards

Angela Simmons attended the 2014 BET Awards yesterday (June 29) at the Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles.

The reality star and daughter of Rev Run wore a structured, leather-accented Valery Kovalska dress.

This is a very unique dress, and Angela pulls it off much better than it looked on the runway, as you really need a figure so as not to get lost in the heaviness of the fabric.

Smokey eyes, a pink lip, sleek hair and some fun but subtle nail art were fresh and pretty, and brought a lightness to the ensemble.

Michelle Williams In Olcay Gulsen – 2014 BET Awards

Michelle Williams In Olcay Gulsen - Olcay Gulsen

Michelle Williams struck a regal pose on the red carpet of the 2014 BET Awards at the Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE last night (June 29) in Los Angeles.

The singer wore a teal Olcay Gulsen gown accented with gold Saint Laurent shoes and a simple Swarovski black and gold box clutch.

The color looks beautiful on Michelle’s skin, and she pulls off the silhouette beautifully.

I love the barely there makeup and long, sleek hair, but considering where the gown’s main focal point is, a low, sleek ponytail might have been a better option to show it off more.

Still, I love Michelle’s whole vibe. Do you agree?

Ashanti In Michael Costello – 2014 BET Awards

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 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 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?
