Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – ‘Cinderella’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - 'Cinderella' Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Cate Blanchett captivated during both the ‘Cinderella’ photocall and premiere hosted at the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany on Friday (February 13).

Photocall: At the Grand Hyatt Hotel, the actress who plays the Evil Stepmother in the film couldn’t have looked more chic in a Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 ensemble. The relaxed tailoring of the loose white blouse melded perfectly with the more structured silhouette of the belted skirt and side ruffle detail. The semi-visible balconette bra underneath only added another layer of allure to the look, which she finished with a sophisticated side-parted bun and black Givenchy ‘Matilda’ sandals.

Premiere: Cutting a wickedly good profile, Cate let her hair down for the red carpet at Berlinale Palace and stunned in a bold Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 metallic gown, slightly modified from the lookbook version. She played her own version of the game of Tetris in the gleaming dress. The pixel-inspired block design was graphic, geometric and glorious, and she balanced it perfectly with Givenchy ‘Clara’ sandals and tousled blonde waves.

An impressive double fashion feature—Queen Cate has done it again.

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton – ‘Every Thing Will Be Fine’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton - 'Every Thing Will Be Fine' Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Charlotte Gainsbourg made an appearance at the Berlinale International Film Festival for the photocall and premiere of her latest movie, ‘Every Thing Will Be Fine’, on Tuesday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany.

Photocall: While this Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2015 look is a) from the latest collection and b) quintessentially Charlotte, I feel like I’ve seen her in this look at least twice before. I guess that is the possible downside of being a muse.

Premiere: For the premiere there was no such feeling of déjà vu. Even though the hair and non-makeup stayed the same, there was an instant shot of glamour given to the French actress, who wore a custom Louis Vuitton gown that was simple in its V-neck design yet enriched with an embellished bodice. Here, Charlotte is the very epitome of the brand under Nicolas Ghesquière: cool and effortless with a hint of sex appeal. With the lack of gowns showcased on the LV runways and look books, these moments are all the more special.

Are Charlotte Gainsbourg and Louis Vuitton a perfect union, or do both parties need to do something new?

Alessandra Mastronardi In Louis Vuitton & Elie Saab – ‘Life’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Alessandra Mastronardi In Louis Vuitton & Elie Saab - 'Life' Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi attended the ‘Life’ photocall and premiere during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival on Monday (February 9) in Berlin, Germany, alongside her Hollywood co-stars Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan.

Photocall: From the accessories alone you can tell this is a Louis Vuitton look. Opting for a simple navy dress, I love how the baby-blue pumps and red LV minaudière prevent this look from being a snooze. This elegant look with a bit of bite has all the right elements to create the perfect photocall look while possessing plenty of personality.

Premiere: Changing into an Elie Saab Resort 2015 strapless gown for the premiere, she once again ensured that all eyes were on her. While some might find this too summery for the current season, I’m enamoured by the ladylike elegance and the dexterous highlighting of the upper body due to that print.

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.
