Bianca Balti In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Birdman’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Bianca Balti In Dolce & Gabbana - ‘Birdman’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Bianca Balti graced the red carpet at the ‘Birdman’ premiere, held during the opening ceremony of the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Wednesday (August 27).

Everything was coming up flowers for the Italian model who posed in a Dolce & Gabbana strapless black chiffon gown with embroidered Sardinian-inspired, blooming vines that traced through the comfortable, voluminous silhouette.

The effect was both relaxed and refined—and likewise enhanced by Bianca’s model-esque proportions.

Elaborate, jewel-encrusted earrings were made all the more a star of this showing because of the simple styling that only just included a top-knot and a matte crimson lip that tied the look together.

2014 Emmy Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Emmy Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

While the constellation of actresses on the scene at the 2014 Emmy Awards had all of us focused on the range of red-carpet gowns and glam, there was plenty more eye candy to be had with the men in the mix at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday night (August 25).

Matthew McConaughey: Not one to ever be a shrinking violet, the ‘True Detective’ actor and nominee suited up in a bold blue Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with contrasting black lapels, paired with Christian Louboutin ‘New Orleans’ flats, and a Bulgari watch and cufflinks. Was it my favourite look of his? Perhaps not. It even drew ‘A Night at the Roxbury’ comparisons among the Twitter-verse. But, with that handsome gaze, he can pull off anything.

Aaron Paul: The ‘Breaking Bad’ Emmy winner couldn’t have accepted his trophy in more classic fashion. He wore top-to-toe Prada in a black kid-mohair tuxedo, with a two-button notch-lapel design and velvet trim on the collar. A white smoking silk shirt, black bowtie and black spazzolato lace-up shoes, plus a Bulgari timepiece, completed the look.

Ty Burrell: Channeling his own blue mood, the ‘Modern Family’ Emmy winner wore a custom Todd Snyder tuxedo that was made especially for his big night. The Italian wool design was a collaborative effort between Ty, his stylist, Ilaria Urbinati, and the designer and boasts a unique shade of blue called ‘dusk,’ which nicely updates the tux from the more standard colourways of black and navy.

Cat Deeley In Burberry – 2014 Emmy Awards

Cat Deeley In Burberry - 2014 Emmy Awards

Cat Deeley was also among the constellation of stars at the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ host floated across the red carpet in a Burberry antique rose, degrade organza gown with a plunging neckline and sash detail at the waist.

We saw a number of Emmys gowns that literally turned up the volume, with their staggeringly extravagant silhouettes, and this pretty design was no different.

She styled all those wispy, diaphanous layers with a Bulgari diamond snake cuff and a Jimmy Choo ‘Mini Charm’ clutch, complementing the mauve colours with a rose-pink lip.

A twisted updo rounded out the look, but would you have preferred to see her hair styled in soft waves to echo the romantic spirit of the dress?

Viola Davis In Escada – 2014 Emmy Awards

Viola Davis In Escada - 2014 Emmy Awards

Viola Davis made a brilliant splash on the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Wearing a positively captivating shade of violet-blue, the actress stunned in an Escada Resort 2015 gown with a paillette-embellished, portrait neckline.

Furthering my affection for this look’s bold and beautiful colour story, she contrasted the blue with a deep ruby clutch, matching Sutra earrings and a red lip.

I am choosing to ignore that the bodice was a bit too snug.

Sarah Paulson In Armani Privé – 2014 Emmy Awards

Sarah Paulson In Armani Privé - 2014 Emmy Awards

There was no missing Sarah Paulson when she walked onto the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ star and lead actress nominee worked an Armani Prive Fall 2014 design that certainly was one of the more striking pieces of the night.

It’s a ‘love it or hate it’ gown that maintained the dark, gothic sensibility that we are accustomed to seeing Sarah wear, but taken to another level with the extravagant flurry of red-dotted netting that encircled the dress.

Lorraine Schwartz cocktail rings flashed through all the cluster of mesh, while her straight bob and nude makeup contributed a more down-to-earth spin for this fuzzy creation.

Hairy-scary or haute?
