Evangeline Lilly In Emanuel Ungaro – The Hollywood Walk of Fame Honoring Sir Peter Jackson

Evangeline Lilly In Emanuel Ungaro - The Hollywood Walk of Fame Honoring Sir Peter Jackson

Evangeline Lilly was back in action at The Hollywood Walk Of Fame Ceremony for Sir Peter Jackson held on Monday (December 8) in Hollywood, California.

Taking a quick sidestep from her promo tour for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,’ she celebrated the ‘Hobbit’ director in an Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2014 frock that undoubtedly stole a few stares away from Sir Peter’s star.

Exuberantly scattered with a pop-art-inspired, broken rose print, the bubblegum-pink dress was brave and slightly brash, topped off with bold-shoulder sleeves and a hip-high slit.

With such a loud design at the forefront, she opted to keep the styling as simple as possible nixing any sign of jewels and wearing only a black pump.

This was such an unexpected look to see on Evangeline. I’m still not sure what to think, except that I wouldn’t have worn it to this particular event.

Love or loathe?

Julianne Moore In Alexander Wang – ‘Still Alice’ Special Screening

Julianne Moore In Alexander Wang - 'Still Alice' Special Screening

Julianne Moore attended a special screening of ‘Still Alice’ hosted by cinéma privé and PANDORA Jewelry at CAA in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (December 7).

The actress, who has been hot and cold lately with her red carpet looks, was firmly in lukewarm territory in an Alexander Wang Spring 2015 ombre-effect dress that also trended on the sporty side with its shiny ribbed texture.

Actually, as I try to find something I like about this look, I’m coming up pretty short. I am not crazy about the rather unflattering, bulkier silhouette or the styling for that matter.

The messy ponytail, nude sandals, and subdued makeup also firmly fell on the side of lacklustre in my book. She can do so much better.

‘Selma’ And The Legends Who Paved The Way Gala

'Selma' And The Legends Who Paved The Way Gala

The ‘Selma’ and the Legends Who Paved the Way Gala was held at Bacara Resort this past Saturday (December 6) in Goleta, California.

Tessa Thompson: The actress was pretty in a pink Giulietta Spring 2015 dress with a pleated, cutout skirt, which she paired with white Oscar Tiye sandals and a Swarovski clutch. With a distinct ’40s flair, the retro mood was prim but not too proper with its skin-baring keyhole detail that put some sultry into all that sweetness.

Oprah Winfrey: Taking lavender out for a spin, the entertainment mogul wore a Marc Bouwer Couture draped gown with embellished waistband matched to her eye shadow.

Angela Bassett: Leaving the pastels (and the dresses) for Tessa and Oprah, Angela instead suited up in a more mannish black-and-white ensemble. While the outfit was nothing to write home about, she attempted to fancy it up with a fringed tassel necklace and a cerulean-blue clutch. I’m not sure it exactly worked.

With a ladies-who-lunch number, an evening gown, and a business suit, it’s hard to tell just exactly what the dress-code was for this gala.

‘TrevorLIVE LA’ For The Trevor Project Red Carpet Roundup

‘TrevorLIVE LA’ For The Trevor Project Red Carpet Roundup

A trio of blonde beauties joined Kiernan Shipka at the ‘TrevorLIVE LA’ event for The Trevor Project held at the Hollywood Palladium on Sunday (December 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Katherine Heigl: The ‘State of Affairs’ actress wore a Kaufmanfranco velvety gown in a stunning sapphire hue, conservatively covered on top but not-so-conservatively slit to her thigh. Aside from that jewel-toned colour, her leg was the star of the show. She styled the look simply with a Rauwolf metallic-accented clutch and black lace Jimmy Choo ‘Award’ pumps, throwing her blonde llocks into a bouffant-style ponytail.

Sarah Hyland: The ‘Modern Family’ starlet paired her highlighted waves with a Dsquared Spring 2015 beaded, multi-colour frock accessorized with matching crimson accents courtesy of Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, a Rauwolf clutch and a bold lip. I wanted to love this fun mini, but something about it just didn’t quite come together for me with the heaviness of the hyper-embellishment.

Beth Behrs: Glitzing up the red carpet, Beth razzle-dazzled in a Naeem Khan Fall 2014 silver and gold dress with, what else, but Giuseppe Zanotti gold pumps. Platinum pin curls and a red lip had her all ready for the Roaring Twenties by way of Studio 54.

Solange Knowles In Christian Siriano – IWC Schaffhausen Celebrates ‘Timeless Portofino’ Gala Event

Solange Knowles In Christian Siriano - IWC Schaffhausen Celebrates 'Timeless Portofino' Gala Event
Solange Knowles performed at IWC Schaffhausen and DuJour Magazine’s Jason Binn’s celebration of ‘Timeless Portofino’ during Art Basel Miami Beach at The W Hotel South Beach on Wednesday (December 3) in Miami, Florida.

The songstress continued her goldenrod-yellow theme in a Christian Siriano Spring 2014 ensemble that mixed a mannish pair of cropped trousers with the more flowing nature of the cape tube top.

Between the colour and the silhouette, this had the drama appropriate for an on-stage number.

Metallic Stuart Weitzman sandals and a gold statement timepiece by IWC completed the look.

Were you missing a bold lip?
