Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab hosted an event in LA on Thursday (November 13), finally getting a chance to meet all those ladies who he helps secure best-dressed status whenever they wear his gowns.

Ashley Madekwe: The gorgeous actress was by far my favourite at this event, wearing a teal look from the Spring 2015 collection styled with a cream Elie Saab clutch. It’s a typically chic offering, easy, effortless, tailored to perfection, with plenty of feminine appeal. I’m crushing on her new bangs too. This is a BDOTW contender if ever I saw one.

Lily Collins: The lady of the hour must have been Lily Collins, who had a breathtaking turn on the red carpet a few weeks ago wearing an Elie Saab ombre Couture gown which I’m pretty confident will be top of many BDOTY lists. Going for something less dramatic on this occasion, the actress wore an uber-chic short jumpsuit from the Spring 2015 collection spliced with a lace sleeve and ruffled detail, which she styled with a black Elie Saab bag and Louboutins. No Lily Collins look would be complete without a bold lip.

Vogue and Tory Burch Celebrate The Tory Burch Watch Collection

tory burch

Vogue and Tory Burch celebrated the new Tory Burch watch collection with a private dinner party on Tuesday (November 11) evening at the designer’s flagship boutique on Rodeo Drive.

Camilla Belle: Yet to spend one night at home in the last two weeks, the actress wore a winter warmer striped Tory Burch Spring 2015 look styled with the same PVC Christian Louboutin ‘Justinodo’ sandals we saw on Kerry Washington this week, with a red Tory Burch ‘Kira’ mini chain clutch and a Tory Burch watch.

Brooklyn Decker: While I love the grandiose feel of her Tory Burch long textured jacquard coat styled with Tory Burch ‘Keri’ sandals and a Tory Burch watch, the makeup turns me cold.

Aubrey Plaza: If Brooklyn turned me cold, then Aubrey’s Tory Burch tweed tunic styled with white tights and white croc pumps has me several degrees below freezing.

Ahna O’Reilly In Preen & Monique Lhuillier – ‘The Sound and The Fury’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Ahna O'Reilly In Preen & Monique Lhuillier - 'The Sound and The Fury' Photocall & Premiere

Ahna O’Reilly was back on the red carpet at the 2014 Venice Film Festival, this time in support of ‘The Sound and The Fury’ on Friday (September 5).

Photocall: Her Preen ‘Christie’ off-the-shoulder black dress with floral embroidery had all the girly charm you could want, especially with that bubblegum lippie, yet the dark colour kept it from venturing too sweet or twee. The Bionda Castana ‘Langley’ sandals would not have been my first (or second) choice, as something more delicate was in order. But from the ankles up, the look was adorable.

Premiere: Vibrantly sweeping onto the scene, the actress impressed in a dramatic Monique Lhuillier Resort 2015 gown with decorative, lace-embroidered sheer overlay through which peeked fairytale-like tulle layers. With her red hair and red lip providing even more impact, Aldo ‘Agrerade’ sandals finished the striking effect. I wasn’t crazy about her earlier Venice premiere look, but this pretty and powerful statement won me over. Do you agree?

Ahna O’Reilly In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘She’s Funny That Way’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Ahna O'Reilly In Dolce & Gabbana - 'She's Funny That Way' Venice Film Festival Premiere

Ahna O’Reilly attended the ‘She’s Funny That Way’ premiere during the 2014 Venice Film Festival on Friday (August 29) in Venice, Italy.

Every inch of me wanted to get excited about her white embroidered Dolce & Gabbana strapless gown with a fold-over bodice, but I couldn’t help but want more from this outing.

By Ahna’s standards this is quite forgettable. She’s had many festival moments which trump this.

While the makeup is lovely, the hair is a bit all over the place, lacking in the gracefulness we expect from her.

Even the reverse necklace and gold clutch can’t save this look.

Ahna O’Reilly attended the after-party during ‘The Long Shrift’ opening night held at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater on Sunday (July 13) in New York City.

The actress looked super cute wearing a Monique Lhuillier Resort 2015 black and teal beaded romper styled with black Monique Lhuillier lace-up sandals.

While this is a more sombre mix of colours than we are used to from Ahna, her romper with its sparkling details still makes a fun and delightful impression.
