Cate Blanchett In Valentino Couture – Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style Awards Ceremony

Cate Blanchett In Valentino Couture - Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style Awards Ceremony

Cate Blanchett attended the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Awards Ceremony held yesterday evening (February 28) at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, California.

The ‘Blue Jasmine’ actress rose to the stylish occasion by opting for a taupe tasselled Valentino Spring 2014 Couture dress.

This was a dress that skewed the glitz and drama of typical award ceremony dresses and instead offered a whole new take with its exquisite craftsmanship.

Just like the runway, Cate kept the styling minimal. While I can imagine this being worn with flats and bohemian jewellery, Cate added polish with a chic up do and strong eye-make-up.  My only change would have been to add some sparkling jewellery such as an ear cuff or cocktail ring.

To me it doesn’t necessarily have serious wow factor but it does have some sort of ethereal quality and Cate’s glowing complexion really gives it a lift.

I always find a delight and sense of excitement in Cate’s sartorial choices and this just proves how different her style is. But what do you think?

Lupita Nyong’o In Michael Kors – Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Lupita Nyong’o In Michael Kors - Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Lupita Nyong’o continued her red carpet success last night (February 28) at the 7th Annual Women in Film Pre-Oscar cocktail party held at Fig & Olive Melrose Place, West Hollywood.

Still wowing us night after night with her red carpet choices during her first ever awards season, Lupita hasn’t faltered despite her hectic schedule which is really admirable. And once again the actress has made an inspiringly bold choice in an indigo and white Michael Kors Spring 2014 dress with an abs-baring cut-away panel.

I’d not realised until now just how muscular this petite lady was but this dress shows off her hard work to full potential.

It’s quite a bold look, but Luptia’s amazingly chic ‘do and pretty in pink lip shade really help to soften it. The Graziela Gems custom made ear cuff and wave ring add a cool touch of sparkle too.

And the bold accessories didn’t stop there. Lupita has worn stand-out blue shoes quite often now as she did at this week’s LoveGold party, and although this pair of Pedro Garcia ‘Rosette’ cobalt blue stain pumps are in-keeping with her unique style, I would have much preferred the look styled with a sandal or a more feminine pink or red pump to complement her lip shade. Do you agree?

Saoirse Ronan In Sass & Bide – ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ New York Press Conference

Saoirse Ronan In Sass & Bide - 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' New York Press Conference

Saoirse Ronan continued the promotional tour for ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ this week as she attended the New York Press Conference at the Crosby Hotel on Wednesday (February 26).

Wearing a black Sass & Bide jumpsuit with gold criss-cross detailing on the body and gold beading around the neckline, Saoirse completed the look with a pair of intricately embroidered black and gold Nichols Kirkwood peep-toe boots.

While I think she needs to work on her posing a little, this is a look that really suits the young actress’s age.

Saoirse’s patterned boots are a lovely addition but a slick of gold jewellery or a high-shine belt would have really added some extra polish.

The Proenza Schouler dress Saoirse wore to the premier earlier in the week received mixed reviews so how do you feel this look compares?

Amy Adams In Vivienne Westwood – Vanity Fair And Chrysler Toast American Hustle

Amy Adams In Vivienne Westwood - Vanity Fair And Chrysler Toast American Hustle

Amy Adams attended the Vanity Fair and Chrysler toast to American Hustle at Ago Restaurant in West Hollywood, California, last night (February 27).

Following from cobalt blue Victoria Beckham to tomato red Elie Saab, the actress’ new-found love of colour doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon by the looks of this hot pink Vivienne Westwood bustier cocktail dress.

While this is quite a voluptuous look, Amy clearly loves the attention she’s garnering from her ‘American Hustle’ role and is oozing with confidence.

Amy’ slicked-back hair is a great choice as anything like a big wave would have been too reminiscent of a Christina Hendricks turn.

To finish, paired back make-up and nude python Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps ensure the dress is doing all of the talking.

Maria Sharapova In Monique Lhuillier – Sugarpova Toppings For Pinkberry Unveiling

Maria Sharapova In Monique Lhuillier - Sugarpova Toppings For Pinkberry Unveiling

Maria Sharapova looked stunning as she unveiled the Sugarpova Toppings for Pinkberry yesterday (February 27) in Los Angeles, California.

The tennis ace looked the picture of sophistication in a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2014 rose gold sequin embroidered blouse with poplin collar and pleated Carven skirt.

Elegant, flirty and season-appropriate, this is a great look for a daytime photocall and the on-trend foundation shade palette really suits Maria.

A pretty pink lip oddly complemented the branding of the event, while a pair of understated and classic nude Christian Louboutin pumps finished off this pretty look.

Vanessa Hudgens In Jenny Packham – 7th Annual Hollywood Domino and Bovet 1822 Gala

Vanessa Hudgens In Jenny Packham -  7th Annual Hollywood Domino and Bovet 1822 Gala

Vanessa Hudgens added a sparkling touch to the red carpet of the 7th Annual Hollywood Domino and Bovet 1822 Gala at Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood yesterday evening (February 27).

Wearing a deep red floor-length gown decorated with intricate beading by Jenny Packham, Vanessa added even more sheen with an undeniably pretty Swarovski red crystal mini clutch by Kiosque.

In recent months Vanessa has really triumphed in high-octane looks from both Giorgio Armani and Monique Lhuillier but this falls a little flat.

To me, the dress just doesn’t flatter her figure and hangs too loosely around her waist. While it is certainly glamorous and elegant, I think Vanessa could and should have chosen something a little more modern.

The hair and make-up complement the drama of the look but still I still feel I’ve seen stronger looks from Vanessa. Do you agree?

Eva Longoria In Georges Hobeika Couture – Unite4:humanity

Eva Longoria In  Georges Hobeika  Couture - unite4humianity

Eva Longoria added a powerful hit of colour to the last night’s unite4:humanity at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, California.

Piling on the glamour, Eva wore a Georges Hobeika Couture figure-hugging pink dress with embellished funnel neck and hem which perfectly showed off her amazing figure.

With her hair back-combed and slicked back and dark nail polish to complement Eva’s dramatic eye make-up, this was a seriously full-on look.

While I love her daring approach to colour and confidence in mixing colours with a pair of red Christian Louboutin pumps, there is just too much going on with this look, especially for such a petite frame.

Eva looked radiant the previous night in an ivory Philosophy ensemble and I much prefer her less-is-more approach. Do you agree, or do you prefer her more stand-out look?
