Lily Collins In Maticevski – ‘Love, Rosie’ Tokyo Premiere

Lily Collins In Maticevski R15 - 'Love, Rosie' Tokyo Premiere

Lily Collins was back on the red carpet for the ‘Love, Rosie’ premiere in Tokyo, Japan on Wednesday (December 3).

The starlet donned a Maticevski Resort 2015 strapless, high-low gown in a burnt-orange hue.

The Aussie designer is known for his sculptural shapes, and I cannot help but be drawn to the intriguing contemporary spin on the New Look ball-gown silhouette here—especially the exposed zipper detail at the back.

Still, despite the more complex architecture of her gown, the effect was one of minimalism when accessorized only by blink-and-you-missed-them jewels and a simple sheer black pump, which I would have traded for a soft metallic shade.

Playing up the classic glamour even more, Lily wore her hair in a sleek, rolled-under bob. She opted for a more barefaced approach, too. Of course, with those stunning brows, who needs makeup.

Blake Lively In Kaufmanfranco – L’Oreal Paris’ 9th Annual Women Of Worth Celebration

Blake Lively In Kaufmanfranco -  L’Oreal Paris’ 9th Annual Women Of Worth Celebration

Blake Lively attended L’Oreal Paris’ Ninth Annual Women Of Worth Celebration, hosted at The Pierre Hotel in New York City on Tuesday (December 2).

The actress put a dramatic spin on her maternity style, working a simple yet striking Kaufmanfranco black, figure-hugging gown, amped up with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

The dress’s backless detail gave Blake plenty of angles to work, as she flashed a radiant smile on the red carpet. She’s already glowing, but some additional sparkle never hurt anyone—and her statement pendant earrings and rows of cuffs did the trick.

Currently maintaining a darker hair colour, she let her reverse ombre strands cascade in gorgeous waves to finish out the look.

Evangeline Lilly In Reem Acra – ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’ World Premiere

Evangeline Lilly In Reem Acra - 'The Hobbit The Battle Of The Five Armies' London Premiere

Evangeline Lilly returned to the scene for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ on Monday (December 1) at Odeon Leicester Square in London, England.

For her reemergence on the red carpet, the actress who’s currently flaunting a sleek, short bob wore a Reem Acra Resort 2015 strapless gown.

It was a grand masterwork from the designer, with its ivory ball skirt and gold bodice beaded in a chainmail, trellis-like pattern and punctuated by miniature turquoise stones. It also showed off Evangeline’s enviably toned shoulders.

The glittery black and gold clutch would have been better if replaced with a more delicate bag, but she hit just the right balance of jewels with her gemstone earrings and arm bracelet.

I can see why she likely opted for this ensemble for the ‘Hobbit’ premiere, as it has all the elements of a fantasy princess look mixed with a slight warrior edge.

It’s been close to a year since we’ve seen Evangeline on the red carpet. What do you make of her return?

Models @ The 2014 British Fashion Awards

Models @ The 2014 2014 British Fashion Awards

A host of models held court at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, where the runway stunners took to the red carpet at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Daisy Lowe: She may have been dressed in shades of blush-pink, but there was a sexy side to all that sweetness with her Antonio Berardi asymmetrical, figure-hugging gown that was slit to her hip. A heart-embellished clutch by Charlotte Olympia finished the look on a lighthearted note.

Suki Waterhouse: From shades of pink to shades of blue, the model subscribed to the sheer trend in a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 tiered and pleated, navy ombre-inspired frock that was perhaps one shade too see-through. Gold metallic sandals provided a spirited contrast, but the baby-blue edged purse had no business here.

Joan Smalls: This Tom Ford scoop-neck LBD was sliced and diced with side cutouts and slits galore. She completed the skin-baring look with black Givenchy heels and a Rauwolf clutch.

Ashley Madekwe In Banana Republic – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Ashley Madekwe In Banana Republic - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Ashley Madekwe was also at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, held at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Like Poppy Delevingne, the actress took a high-street approach in a custom, monochromatic three-piece ivory suit from Banana Republic.

Impeccably tailored, the menswear-inspired look has the distinction of being classically timeless yet completely current. I also love that she wore the blazer swung across her shoulders like a cape.

There’s power in the plunge, and this mannish ensemble doesn’t forget its sexier side with a deep V neckline and streamlined silhouette that commands attention. So, too, does that ruby red lip.

Très chic.

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Laura Carmichael attended the 2014 British Fashion Awards at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

The English actress selected a dress from London-based designer Christopher Kane’s Spring 2015 collection.

On paper, the frock has all the right pieces to create a successful look—a vibrant lavender-blue colour, structure and sass, and interesting design detailing courtesy of the controlled explosion of tulle.

But, sadly, none of the pieces translated on the red carpet, once removed from the runway.

In fact, the effect was rather unflattering and dated. Accessories did nothing to remedy the look’s shortcomings, as the shoes were too matchy-matchy and the oversized beige clutch didn’t match at all.
