Taylor Swift In H&M – ‘The Giver’ New York Press Conference

Taylor Swift In H&M - 'The Giver' Press Conference

Taylor Swift attended the press conference for ‘The Giver,’ held at the JW Marriott Essex House in New York City on Tuesday (August 12).

Letting the flair of her chic street style inform her look, she was lovely in a floral-print H&M top and pleated mini skirt that featured sheer horizontal paneling.

The matching separates were charming, in that they balanced the scale of both youthful fun and sophisticated flair. The same goes for her beauty approach, as she kept her blonde locks loose and natural, while upping the ante with a berry lip.

It was the dynamite shoes that really sealed the deal. The Elie Saab Resort 2015 metallic-pink pumps with mesh inserts took this legs-for-days look to another level.

Do you like her mix of high-street and high-fashion?

Jessica Alba In Antonio Berardi – Good Morning America

Jessica Alba In Antonio Berardi - Good Morning America

Jessica Alba was the definition of pretty-in-pink, as she made her way into the ABC Studios in New York City’s Times Square for an appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ on Tuesday (August 12).

Although she’s promoting her new movie, ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,’ she was the very picture of darling femininity in her pretty-in-pink Antonio Berardi Resort 2015 dress.

She wore the pink-and-white print, silk-blend cloqué frock with a Melissa Kaye Jewelry ring and Vita Fede double cubo earrings, not to mention a flirty-fun high ponytail.

Bringing a spirited, ‘Sin City’ style edge to the pink sweetness, she strapped on silver metallic Brian Atwood ‘Tribeca’ platform sandals. While they proved to be quite the accent accessory—and the graphic clutch, too—I would have preferred both shoes and bag to be less statement and more streamlined with the dress.

She’s fresh off her win as Best Dressed of the Week. Has Jessica continued to impress with this look?

Teen Choice Award Red Carpet Trend: Crop Tops

Teen Choice Award Red Carpet Trend - Crop Tops

Aside from the covetable surfboards, the other major item trending among the crop of PYTs at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday (August 10) was undoubtedly the crop top.

The midriff continued to have a moment at the event, hosted at the Shrine Auditorium, where two-piece ensembles showed up at every turn.

With varying lengths of the shortened shirt, some showed only a sliver of skin while other manners of bralettes, bandeaus and bustiers flaunted measurably more. But with such a range of styles, it was refreshing to see just how different the stomach-baring top can be.

From Nina Dobrev’s colour-splashed statement to Taylor Swift’s charming ensemble and Kylie Jenner’s edgier entrance, not to mention Shay Mitchell’s sweet-and-sultry white lace look, the unspoken consensus among the flock of starlets was in full favour of the flaunted and toned midsection.

There were nearly too many crops to count on the blue carpet, with Jordin Sparks, Chloe Grace Moretz, Kim Kardashian, Hilary Duff, Laura Marano and Vanessa Marano also keeping the trend alive and kicking.

Are you a fan, or has the crop top finally been overexposed?

Odeya Rush In Georges Hobeika Couture – ‘The Giver’ New York Premiere

Odeya Rush In Georges Hobeika Couture - 'The Giver' New York Premiere

Odeya Rush joined Taylor Swift at the New York premiere of ‘The Giver’ on Monday (Aug. 11) at the Ziegfeld Theatre.

Also fresh in from the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, the young actress likewise echoed the apparent colour of the night—red.

In keeping with her glamorous mode the night before, she donned a floor-sweeping, scarlet gown with an embellished bodice from the Georges Hobeika Fall 2014 Couture collection, which was an elegant and impactful choice.

Not taking the look too seriously, though, she brought a youthful flair back with her well-exaggerated cat eye and a berry-pink lip, along with an intricately braided updo.

Do you like her second red dress in as many days?

Taylor Swift In Monique Lhuillier – ‘The Giver’ New York Premiere

Taylor Swift In Monique Lhuillier - 'The Giver' New York Premiere
Taylor Swift crisscrossed coasts in the span of 24 hours, as she swept onto the scene in New York for the premiere of ‘The Giver,’ held at the Ziegfeld Theatre on Monday (August 11).

After impressing on Sunday night at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles with her charming two-piece ensemble, the starlet turned up the volume of sophistication in a gown, perfectly coordinated to the red carpet.

Plucked from Monique Lhuillier’s Resort 2015 collection, the colour-blocked design with its architectural silhouette and full draped skirt was a departure from her more sparkling, embellished style endeavors—and a welcome one at that.

She certainly has the model-esque height to pull off a gown of these proportions.

In keeping with the more directional vibe of the dress, she coaxed her long bob into a deep side-parted wave and wore a sizzling shade of crimson lip lacquer to echo the boldness of that cat-eye.

I do find myself wishing for a different shoe, though. The nude suede Casadei pumps fall flat, when this dress could have done well with a statement sandal. Ignoring that, this is a great, fresh look for her.

Sylva & Cie rings and Brumani ear climbers rounded out her look

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior – ‘Two Days, One Night’ London Premiere

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior - 'Two Days, One Night

Marion Cotillard walked the red carpet at the ‘Two Days, One Night’ London premiere, hosted at Somerset House in England on Thursday (August 7).

The French actress was unsurprisingly dressed in Christian Dior with this LBD hailing from the Fall 2014 collection.

The draped, cold-shoulder silhouette with floral embellishment radiated with soft elegance—even more subtle given that the design was missing the sassier corset-inspired lacing.

Dior metal-accented statement heels added a bit of edge, while a wispy updo and berry lip were quiet finishes for this sophisticated yet pretty look.
