Rooney Mara In Calvin Klein – Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala

Rooney Mara was another celebrity who attended the Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala at the Armani Hotel in Dubai on Friday.

The ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ actress often experiments on the red carpet, and this occasion was no different.

She wore a custom-made black sleeveless Calvin Klein sheer dress with a lacquered silk skirt, sculptural detail on the bust and a thick waistband.

While the look is definitely risky, Rooney pulled it off by keeping her hair tightly pulled back and pairing the dress with simple, strappy Givenchy heels.

The finished look was part dominatrix, part runway model — and full on fabulous.

Kristin Davis In Vintage Dior – Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala

Kristen Davis hit the red carpet at the Armani Hotel in Dubai on Friday for the Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala.

The ‘Sex and the City’ actress donned a long, black vintage Dior dress for the occasion, which she paired with a lacy jacket, gold necklace and simple black clutch.

The heart-shaped neckline of the Dior gown is stunning, but sadly, Davis took attention away from this unique detail by adding the sparkly jacket – which also hides the shape-defining waistband.

But with simple makeup and the front of her wavy, classic-movie-star locks pinned back, the actress shines bright and looks every bit the star that she is.

Freida Pinto In Sam & Lavi – 2012 Dubai Film Festival

Freida Pinto attended a portrait session on day six of the 9th Annual Dubai Film Festival on Friday.

Serving as a member of the jury, the Indian actress chose to wear a Sam & Lavi Marrakesh-printed ‘Gladis’ dress.

Her choice to pair the loose-fitting maxi with long Lindsay Vallan necklaces and bright-orange Roger Vivier Sport Chic sandals elevated the casual dress into a classy ensemble.

I just wish she wouldn’t have hidden the waist-cinching detail of the dress with a clunky belt that, while probably chosen to help give the outfit some shape, only seemed to make it look that much baggier.

Jessica Ennis In Victoria Beckham – BBC Sports Personality Of The Year

Jessica Ennis attended the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards on Sunday evening, which were held at the ExCel in London.

The gold-winning Olympian continued her run of wearing only British designers.

Her favourite brands are Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, but last night she sported a wool and silk-blend Victoria Beckham gown with a black clutch, chunky watch and elegant necklace.

While the dress is definitely a winner, Ennis shouldn’t have added the chunky watch to her arm, as it just doesn’t match the elegance of the gown.

I have to give her props anyway: it’s not every day you see an athlete looking ultra-feminine and red-carpet-worthy.
