Which Was Your Favourite Emma Watson 'Noah' Promo Tour Look

The ‘Noah’ promo tour started for Emma Watson in Berlin, where she wore a sensual Wes Gordon halter gown with a bold red lip and partless hairdo.

Moving on to Madrid, she gave us a different, and very much unexpected, look donning a J. Mendel two-piece trouser look, which had an edge and plenty of sex appeal despite the modest plunging neckline.

In LA she had a trio of looks, starting with Stella McCartney, Peter Pilotto and Osman before heading to New York where she worked the menswear trend to a tee wearing a classic Saint Laurent suit.

There were mixed reviews about her Oscar de la Renta gown in New York – I’m not expecting this to do too well in this poll; however, she quickly redeemed herself with a breathtaking Ralph Lauren Collection white gown at the London premiere, which was her last stop on this tour.

It was a hard choice, but the J. Mendel is still my favourite, followed by the Ralph Lauren.

Which Was Your Favourite Naomie Harris ‘Mandela Long Walk to Freedom’ Promo Tour Look

Naomie Harris’ promotional tour for ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ saw her excel to new heights.

We all found the ‘Skyfall’ tour very frustrating, knowing she could do so much better and she proved it this time around.

The tour started in Toronto, where she wore Burberry Prorsum for the press conference, then, of course, Marchesa for the premiere while promoting this Weinstein production.

She dazzled in Johannesburg wearing a breathtaking Donna Karan Atelier gown. She kept it light and summery for the AFI Fest premiere in Oscar de la Renta, amping up the look with aqua accessories.

Naomie was ethereal for the LA premiere in Vionnet.

I love the fiery Valentino she wore to the New York premiere. She was the first to wear Pre-Fall 2014, wearing a mint-green Burberry Prorsum frock to a New York special screening.

She wore her second Vionnet look on this tour to the Paris premiere, and she capped off an amazing run with the stunning Alexander McQueen gown on the night when Mr Mandela passed away.

The McQueen still gives me goosebumps. This was easily my favourite of the tour. The Oscar de la Renta, followed by the Donna Karan Atelier, blue Vionnet and Valentino round out my top 5.

Which Was Your Favourite Jena Malone ‘The Hunger Games Catching Fire’ Promo Tour Look

After starting her ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ promo tour in London wearing two fiery red looks from ASOS and Monique Lhuillier, Jena Malone smouldered in a black beaded Reem Acra gown in Norway.

She turned things up a notch at the LA premiere wearing Nicholas Oakwell Couture, before heading to Toronto where she wore a dress by up-and-coming designer Dora Abodi.

Jena’s final look was a chic Valentino dress in New York which I feel may get the majority of the votes, but my favourite was easily her Monique Lhuillier fringed gown.

It was bold, vibrant and perfectly encapsulated the spirit of the movie.

Elizabeth Banks Hunger Games Promo Tour

Elizabeth Banks lit up the red carpet on each occasion during her promo tour for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’.

We expected a lot following her epic run for the first movie, but even we didn’t expect a 100% flaw-free tour which left us begging for more.

It all started in London, where she kicked off with Alexander McQueen, before epitomizing the phrase ‘go big or go home’ wearing a lemon satin strapless gown which was custom made by Jason Wu, before turning to Jason Wu again for her after-party look.

Berlin is without question my favourite from the tour. Her Elie Saab Couture gown still sends shivers down my spine and is most definitely non-negotiable when putting together my BDOTY list.
Elizabeth sparkled once again in Elie Saab for the Norway premiere before moving onto Paris, where she delighted in her second McQueen look of the tour.

Things didn’t slow down when she returned stateside, donning an orange Versace frock in LA which was our best look of the week, followed by a change of pace with a Jenny Packham two-piece in New York to round out her tour.

If only all promo tours could be this spectacular and memorable.

Jennifer Lawrence Hunger Games Catching Fire Promo Tour

Jennifer Lawrence had an epic run promoting the first ‘Hunger Games’ movie, but from your comments I didn’t get a sense that she lived up to your expectations for ‘Catching Fire’.

We all knew that it would be a Diorfest, with breaks for the photocalls and press conferences, but it seemed that many of you also couldn’t warm to her new haircut.

While I share your disappointment with her London premiere Dior Couture frock, things did get better.

The LA premiere Dior Couture gown is still my favourite, with Madrid’s Dior and Alexander McQueen and Rome’s Dior and Proenza Schouler outings, plus the Paris premiere look ranking highly in my estimation.

Which Was Your Favourite Maggie Gyllenhaal 'White House Down' Promo Tour Look

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s promo tour for ‘White House Down’ was short and sweet, yet she showcased a lot of diversity when it came to her looks.

She started off wearing a sexy Alexander McQueen dress for the Washington premiere, followed by a chic Vionnet frock for her arrival at ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’.

The actress managed to pull off a tricky knitted Dior strapless dress for the New York premiere and ended her run wearing a cute pastel ensemble by Chloe.

Two things I learned from this promo tour are that Maggie loved both her Casadei kitten heels and her pink lippie.

When it comes to my favourite, I’m stuck between the McQueen and the Vionnet.
