Zhang Ziyi In Lanvin – Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala

Zhang Ziyi In Lanvin - Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala

Zhang Ziyi joined Fan Bingbing on the red carpet this evening (September 19) for the Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala in China where she was the host.

While I was expecting an princess gown from Zhang Ziyi, she went left, and served up this laidback elegant Lanvin Resort 2015 look.

No bells, no whistles; just a achingly understated black and white silk blouse with a black maxi skirt oozing boho chic.

I love that she didn’t overdress, styling the look with some complementary accessories including a gold flower belt, silver jewels and Roger Vivier clutch.

Wavy tresses and a red lip rounded out her pitch perfect look.

J’adore. Some times less is more. Do you agree?

Zoe Saldana In Juan Carlos Obando – 2014 Hispanic Heritage Awards

Zoe Saldana In Juan Carlos Obando - 2014 Hispanic Heritage Awards

Zoe Saldana attended the 2014 Hispanic Heritage Awards at Warner Theatre on Thursday (September 18) in Washington, DC.

The actress used the occasion to showcase the designs of fellow Latin star Juan Carlos Obando, wearing a look from his Fall 2014 collection.

In the later stages of the pregnancy we would forgive Zoe for perhaps not being on top form and taking her foot off the gas style-wise, but the mother-to-be is not letting things slip in that department.

She looked stunning in her satin and tulle gown styled with Sam Lehr jewels.

I love how the satin peplum detail perfectly caresses and flatters her bump, giving her a gorgeous silhouette.

She’s never looked better during this maternity phase.

Get The Look: Kirsten Dunst’s ‘The Two Faces of January’ New York Premiere Makeup

KIRSTEN DUNSTCelebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff worked with Kirsten Dunst for the premiere of ‘The Two Faces of January’ this week.

Pati shares her beauty inspiration: “For Kirsten’s premiere, I worked off of the very inspiring Chanel Couture dress she wore. It was made of a neoprene type of fabric which gave it structure and had the most beautiful bead work, which is where my palette was drawn from.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Keeping her skin fresh, Pati prepped with Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist and L’Oreal Miracle Blur in the T-zone. After a light finish of foundation, she used Cle de Peau Concealer in Beige to even out the skin.

The brows were given strong definition using Maybelline Define a Brow in Dark Blonde.

For the eyes, she used a matte cream colour shadow on the lid and a matte putty colour shadow in the crease (both by Dior) to even out the lid and give definition. She then applied a matte bone colour on the lid and a matte taupe in the crease (both by Pati Dubroff Perfect Palette).

Next she used a liquid eyeliner from the centre lash line, extending beyond the outer corner with a flick. On top of the liner, she drew another line from the inner corner of the lash line, then extending on top of the black liner (a double liner effect).

This liner was a silver metallic – Chanel Long Lasting Eyeliner in Silver Light. Pati focused the mascara to the outer lashes to keep the inner eye light and bright.

Pati then applied a swirl of Flower Cream Blush in Petunia on the apples of the cheeks.

Finally, the lips got Chanel Rouge Allure in 217 Radieuse, a pale opal pink to mimic the opal beads on the dress.

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture - Harper's Bazaar China Charity Gala

Fan Bingbing took to the red carpet this evening (September 19) for the Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala in China.

Channelling her inner Hollywood goddess, she stunned wearing a Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture off-white wool crepe dress with pearl and crystal diamond-patterned embellishment.

The dress is gorgeous, the hair and makeup breathtaking, but the accessories let her down.

I could perhaps forgive the Chopard necklace on such a glamorous night, but the black and cream Louis Vuitton bag and pink glitter shoes? No.

The bag could’ve got a pass had it been smaller, because it does complement the pattern on her dress (and as the face of the Fall 2014 campaign I guess it was somewhat mandatory), but the shoes shall get no such pass.

Emporio Armani Spring 2015 Front Row

Emporio Armani Spring 2015 Front Row

Ashley Madekwe and Bella Thorne were perched in the front row of the Emporio Armani Spring 2015 show during Milan Fashion Week yesterday afternoon (September 18).

Ashley Madekwe: Embodying the elegance of the brand to a tee, the actress wore a white Emporio Armani sleeveless blazer with slim-fit trousers. Styled in a timeless, chic manner with black and white accessories, I can’t help but be captivated by the enigmatic and androgynous cool appeal of this look.

Bella Thorne: The actress also went the black and white route while opting for separates with an all-round looser fit. This I found surprising, and refreshing, considering that her style often consists of tight-fitted mini dresses. However, the only thing I would change about this look is the shoes. There is something quite clownish about them.
