Adèle Exarchopoulos In Balmain – 39th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards

Adèle Exarchopoulos In Balmain - 39th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association AwardsAdèle Exarchopoulos joined Lupita Nyong’o at the 39th annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, which took place at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, California on Saturday (January 11).

Flaunting a Balmain Pre-Fall 2014 monochromatic mini-dress, the young French actress was not easily missed on the red carpet. Flocked in sequins, the black-and-white, body-con design featured a bold crackle-effect, pebblestone pattern.

A silver, spike-studded Christian Louboutin clutch added a touch of danger to the edgy dress, which she also paired with black Prada cage-inspired platform sandals.

While her ensemble was attention-grabbing, Adèle dialed back her statement look when it came to her hair and makeup. She barely seemed to be wearing an ounce of product, while her brunette locks were just pasted back in an unusual wet-look ‘do

Yay or nay?

Adele Exarchopoulos In Louis Vuitton – 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Adele Exarchopoulos In Louis Vuitton S14 – 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Adele Exarchopoulos joined her ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ co-star Lea Seydoux on the red carpet for the 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala held at Cipriani 42nd Street on Tuesday (January 7) in New York City.

You guys didn’t love her previous 80s-inspired Balmain look, but I’m confident that this lace V-neck short-sleeved dress with fare much better.

Mostly because it has a less try-hard feel about it and its softer and more feminine, plus the styling is much improved, with a black clutch and tri-colour Jimmy Choo platform sandals adding a touch of colour to her look along with the red manicure.

A simple fishtail plait completed her look.

Does this look warm you to Adele’s style, or does she still have much to improve?

Adèle Exarchopoulos In Balmain – New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Adèle Exarchopoulos In Balmain R14 - New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Adèle Exarchopoulos joined Melonie Diaz, Octavia Spencer and Cate Blanchett on the red carpet for the 2014 New York Film Critics Circle Awards Ceremony held at The Edison Ballroom on Monday (January 6) in New York City.

The French actress, who we can expect to see on the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday, wore a high-neck, bold shouldered Balmain Resort 2014 white long sleeve part-quilted, part-chiffon ensemble accented with gold button detailing.

This look, which she styled with gold hooped earrings and sexy cat-eyes, would’ve benefited from better footwear.

Her shoes, sadly, add nothing to the youthfulness look.

Adele Exarchopoulos In Dior – Governors Awards 2013

Adele Exarchopoulos In Dior - Governors Awards 2013

Adele Exarchopoulos joined her co-star and BFF Lea Seydoux, on the red carpet for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards held at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center in LA yesterday evening.

Playing ebony to Lea’s ivory, the French actress wore a Dior black frock with a plunging neckline and rise-and-fall hemline.

Perhaps some are missing statement accessories, a long pendent necklace or a clutch, but I kinda like that she kept the look basic. She didn’t even apply nail polish to amp up the look.

Dior two-tone pumps, a part-braided just-got-out-of-bed ‘do and smokey eyes completed her look.

Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos for Miu Miu Resort 2014

lea-seydoux-miu-miu-1

The co-stars of ‘Blue Is The Warmest Colour’, which won the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or, Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, clearly have such great chemistry (as we witnessed during Cannes Film Festival) that I’m not surprised that Miu Miu has snapped up the pair for their Resort 2014 ad campaign.

While this is a first campaign for 19-year-old newcomer Adèle, Léa has starred in campaigns for Prada (Candy and Resort 2012), Levi and Rag & Bone.

Against a soft-pink background Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin capture their candid chemistry as they are casually reclined across each other on the floor wearing Miu Miu garb that is striking in colour, rich in embellishment and emboldened with prints.

This is a very successful campaign as I am buying everything they are selling, especially the accessories – metaphorically speaking.

Adele Exarchopoulos In Prada – ‘La Vida De Adele’ Madrid Photocall

Adele Exarchopoulos In Prada - 'La Vida De Adele' Madrid Photocall

Adele Exarchopoulos attended the Madrid photocall for ‘La Vida De Adele’ (Blue Is The Warmest Colour) held at the Santo Mauro Hotel in Spain yesterday afternoon.

The young French actress, who I see as a bit of a rebel, wore a Prada Resort 2014 maroon printed dress with contrasting black sleeves with embroidered details.

Contrasting prints and colours can at times be tricky to pull off, but Adele has enough poise and confidence to make it work.

Sadly, I felt that her maroon Prada sneakers didn’t complement her overall look.
