Shailene Woodley In Temperley London – ‘White Bird In A Blizzard’ New York Screening

Shailene Woodley In Temperley London - 'White Bird In A Blizzard' New York Screening

Shailene Woodley attended the ‘White Bird In A Blizzard’ New York screening held at the Sunshine Landmark on Wednesday (October 15) in New York City.

The actress wore a Temperley London Spring 2015 navy look featuring a waistcoat and slim trousers styled with patent-leather flats.

We all know that Shailene often loves to rock this type of mannish look, and I love that she wears it, once again, so confidently on this occasion.

My only problem with this look is the black headband. My association with this headband is that it’s to be used when holding your hair back to wash your face or apply makeup, so, in my eyes, it gives Shailene’s look an unfinished feel.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lanvin – ‘Beyond The Lights’ Chicago International Film Festival Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lanvin - 'Beyond The Lights' Chicago International Film Festival Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended a screening of ‘Beyond The Lights’ at the 50th annual Chicago International Film Festival at the AMC River East 21 on Friday (October 10) in Chicago, Illinois.

The British actress wore a demurely elegant Lanvin Resort 2015 knee-length LBD spliced with a white bow detail at the neckline giving this sophisticated look a girlish flourish.

With that gorgeous face, chic updo and diamond jewels, the look didn’t need much else, so simple black pumps provided the finishing touch.

I love Gugu’s style. Simple, elegant, without a hint of trying too hard.

Mia Wasikowska In Chanel Couture – ‘Madame Bovary’ London Film Festival Screening

Mia Wasikowska In Chanel Couture - 'Madame Bovary' London Film Festival Screening

Mia Wasikowska joined Laura Carmichael on the red carpet for the screening of ‘Madame Bovary’ during the 58th BFI London Film Festival held at Odeon West End on Saturday (October 11) in London, England.

Usually I reserve my rights to judge any Chanel runway look until I see it on the red carpet, as the red carpet look is usually much more preferable; sadly, that is not the case on this occasion.

Mia breathes no life into this metallic-silver Chanel Spring 2014 Couture futuristic-style dress which creates the illusion of a tiny waist.

I don’t even feel the black pumps are to blame here; perhaps it’s the hair and makeup bringing down the look, or that she simply lacks presence.

Does this look work for you?

Laura Carmichael In Erdem – ‘Madame Bovary’ London Film Festival Screening

Laura Carmichael In Erdem - 'Madame Bovary' London Film Festival Screening

Laura Carmichael attended the London Film Festival screening of ‘Madame Bovary’ held at the Odeon West End on Saturday (October 11) in London, England.

The actress wore an Erdem Resort 2015 white organza creation rendered with striking black floral embroidery for an elegant evening option with plenty of ladylike appeal.

Giving the look a contemporary spin, Laura styled her look with mesh and PVC pumps with metallic toecaps.

The overall look would’ve been perfect had her wavy tresses been worn back in an elegant chignon.

Do you agree?

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

men 10 oct

Here is a look at two smart gents who took to the red carpet yesterday evening (October 9).

Ansel Elgort: The young actor joined Kaitlyn Dever for the ‘Men, Women & Children’ London premiere. This is taking it up a level. Working a strong graphic-print look from Dior Homme, I love those black calfskin strapped derbies with black and white rubber soles which give this look the cool flourish it deserved. Very well played.

Jeremy Renner: The ‘Bourne Legacy’ actor joined Mary Elizabeth Winstead on the red carpet for the ‘Kill The Messenger’ New York screening wearing a more classic look from Dolce & Gabbana. The pinstriped midnight-blue three-piece suit with a petrol-blue tie is tailored to perfection to allow Jeremy to stand out in the most sophisticated way possible.
