Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Love & Mercy’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

'Love & Mercy' Photocall - 65th Berlinale International Film Festival

Elizabeth Banks attended the ‘Love & Mercy’ photocall and premiere during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Friedrichstadt-Palast on Sunday (February 8) in Berlin, Germany.

Proving to be quite a worthy ambassador for the Elie Saab brand, the actress did what she does best—blow me away.

Her crimson ombre, voluminous tulle, and lace Fall 2014 couture gown featured a bodice fully embroidered with pearls and sequins. This will definitely find pride of place in her red carpet Hall of Fame.

I actually prefer this gown to her ‘Hunger Games’ London premiere gown. Perhaps because of its quintessential “King of Bling” feel or the way she is working the hell out of the look.

Ruby lips and matching Rauwolf clutch rounded out her look.

It will be hard for anyone, including Elizabeth herself, to top this one. But I hope many will rise to the challenge.

Natalie Portman In Christian Dior & Lanvin – ‘Knight of Cups’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Natalie Portman In Christian Dior & Lanvin - 'Knight of Cups' Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

On Sunday night (February 8), Natalie Portman promoted her movie, Knight of Cups, during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany.

Photocall: For the photocall, the Dior ambassador wore a very chic black Dior wool coat dress, impeccably tailored with button details and flap pockets making up part of the design. Even though a tuxedo-inspired dress is nothing new for Dior, they never look or feel exactly the same. Take Felicity Jones’ for example.

Premiere: Later on in the evening, she pulled out all the stops by wearing a custom black, strapless Lanvin gown with velvet bustier and taffetas ruffle skirt accented with a black satin belt. This left me breathless as I got caught up in the supreme elegance of the look. It’s been a very long time since I was this moved by a Natalie Portman look. A Lanvin black satin, long ‘Evening’ minaudière with white floral detailing and Sidney Garber jewels rounded out her look.

Are you as enamoured by the second look as I am?

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘Aloft’ (‘No Llores, Vuela’) Madrid Photocall & Premiere

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton -  'Aloft' ('No Llores, Vuela') Madrid Photocall & Premiere

On Wednesday (January 21) Jennifer Connelly was in Madrid, Spain, to promote her new movie, ‘Aloft’, whose original title read ‘No Llores, Vuela’ in Spanish.

Photocall: At the photocall held at the Ritz hotel, the actress opted for chic separates, pairing a printed top with an A-line leather skirt, which is a fundamentally sleek design, giving her daytime look edgy elegance. The look was, of course, styled with Louis Vuitton ankle boots.

Premiere: For the premiere, the actress was able to snag a look from the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2015 collection even before Style.com could publish the pictures. No real surprises there. Continuing on the leather-trimmed theme from recent collections, Nicolas Ghesquière’s visionary approach to femme design is rendered in this mini daisy print dress, which marries sensuality with a cool edge. Keeping the LV ankle boots she wore earlier in the day, the look was topped off with a patent-leather LV clutch.

Taking her foot way off the gas following an busy start to awards season, the actress fashioned a simple profile wearing Saint Laurent dress featuring a nipped in waist.

Despite this look featuring no bells or whistles it oozes plenty of charming feminine flair, finding the right balance between girlish and ladylike.

Barely-there makeup and Saint Laurent pumps completed her muted look.

Kaley Cuoco In Jonathan Simkhai & Kaufmanfranco - 'The Wedding Ringer' LA Photocall & Premiere

It was a busy day for Kaley Cuoco, who attended both the photocall and premiere of her latest movie, ‘The Wedding Ringer’, on Tuesday (January 6) in Los Angeles, California.

Photocall: Opting for a refreshing summery blue hue, the actress wore a breezy Jonathan Simkhai top and skirt styled with a blue pendant, long gold necklace and grey Jimmy Choo ‘Addison’ suede pumps.

Premiere: It’s rare that I find myself enamoured by anything Kaley wears, but on this occasion j’adore her shimmering Kaufmanfranco Fall 2014 light grey sequin strapless dress with a dainty flared skirt. Styled with dove-grey Pedro García ‘Cecily’ patent leather sandals and a chunky silver clutch, the sassy look is one of her best yet.
