Lily James In Mary Katrantzou – ‘Cinderella’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall

Lily James In Mary Katrantzou - 'Cinderella' Berlin Film Festival Photocall
Lily James attended the ‘Cinderella’ photocall during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Friday (February 13) in Berlin, Germany.

The actress caught my eye in her Mary Katrantzou Spring 2015 dress in which the designer’s one-time signature engineered prints were instead transformed into the rush of intricate embellishment.

The delicate baby-blue design was given a dynamic and semi-revealing punch with its peek-a-boo sheer embroidery of floral shapes interspersed with iguana-like creatures and the abstract black ruffle at the hem.

As the dress stood on its own, Lily streamlined her styling to only include simple black Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ sandals and a modern, wispy low ponytail.

I loved the fanciful nature of this frock, as it’s in keeping with the fairy tale nature of her film yet provides a strong directional flair.

Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent – ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ London Premiere

Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent - 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' London Premiere
Dakota Johnson swept onto the scene at the London premiere of ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ at Odeon Leicester Square today (February 12) in England.

She continued her black and white streak, this time selecting a Saint Laurent plunge-front gown with a hint of delicate embellishment at the bodice and a slight flowing train for added impact.

While the gown is simple in spirit, nodding to a languid and lovely Grecian silhouette, it does radiate a soft and innocent smolder as we would expect.

Sidney Garber jewels and a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch quietly complete the minimalistic statement, with a bold magenta lip adding the bolder punch of the look.

Here she maintains her sleek and graceful edge with an unforced sultry appeal—would you agree?

Charlize Theron attended the second night of the 65th Festival di Sanremo 2015 at TeatroAriston on Wednesday (February 11) in Sanremo, Italy.

The actress stunned in a Jenny Packham black gown that moved beautifully as she entered the stage area.

With the embellished bodice and pleated chiffon-like layers of the skirt, the dress took on a flowing, Grecian flair.

I love how effortlessly Charlize carried off the relaxed elegance of this look, finishing it with tousled waves and sun-kissed makeup.

2015 Grammy Awards Men Red Carpet Roundup

Grammys mens

A handful of gents made waves at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, where their looks carried some eclectic personality, yet still fell in a rather safe camp for such a night.

Kanye West: Striking a tough, hands-in-pockets pose, the rapper and nominee accentuated the aloof attitude in a Balmain Homme suit, worn shirtless with a slight slouch to the pants. It all made sense until I saw the weathered pair of black cowboy boots, which was the unexpected, rebel twist. Yay or nay to the boots?

Jay Z: The music mogul was dressed to impress in a Burberry modern-fit English-woven wool and mohair tuxedo in an inky blue hue with a black silk contrast shawl collar. He couldn’t have looked sharper if he tried.

Common
: Taking a monochromatic, all-black approach, the rapper and multiple nominee wore a well-tailored Givenchy suit that he pulled off handsomely enough to not appear too one-note.

Gwen Stefani In Atelier Versace – 2015 Grammy Awards Performance

Gwen Stefani In Atelier Versace - 2015 Grammy Awards Performance
Gwen Stefani took to the 2015 Grammy Awards stage on Sunday (February 8) to perform ‘My Heart Is Open’ with Adam Levine at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Having earlier rocked an Atelier Versace Spring 2015 jumpsuit-style number on the red carpet, she didn’t mess with a good thing as she again wore the designer.

Going from cool-girl to red-hot, she sizzled in a fiery custom-made, strapless gown with a thigh-high slit and structured detail at the hip, which she paired with matching Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps.

The delicate beading at bodice and the silk satin cutouts were a familiar motif of the Atelier Versace Spring 2015 collection, and I loved the captivating flourish they added to the dress.

With the crimson lip back with a vengeance, she is two for two on Grammys night. I don’t know which look I liked more. Did you have a favourite?

Katy Perry In Valentino Couture – 2015 Grammy Awards Performance

Katy Perry In Valentino Couture - 2015 Grammy Awards Performance
Katy Perry performed ‘By the Grace of God’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

There was no place for extravagant antics or cartoonish costumes during this emotional rendition, so the songstress toned it way down in a structural Valentino Haute Couture gown from the Sala Bianca 945 collection.

I loved the calmly statuesque and stoic spirit of this pristine white dress with its cape detail. It was quietly beautiful and appropriate.

Even Katy’s bright purple hair from the red carpet had miraculously disappeared into a sleek low ponytail.
