Who Wore Bibhu Mohapatra Better…Ahna O’Reilly or Adriana Lima?

Who Wore Bibhu Mohapatra Better Ahna O'Reilly or Adriana Lima

Ahna O’Reilly was the first to wear this Bibhu Mohapatra Resort 2014 mixed scroll-print pattern dress with a plunging bodice with bandeau bralette detail to the Who What Wear and Cadillac’s 50 Most Fashionable Women of 2013 event back in October.

Last month, Adriana Lima wore the same dress to the IWC Schaffhausen event, styling her look exactly the same, with black ankle-strap sandals, plus she added the sponsor’s timepiece.

There isn’t much in it, but Adriana’s undeniable sex appeal wins me over here.

Tory Burch Rodeo Drive Flagship Opening

Tory Burch Rodeo Drive Flagship Opening

Tory Burch hosted a party on Tuesday (January 14) to celebrate her newly opened boutique on Rodeo Drive, which is her first flagship on the West Coast.

Celebrities came to check out the new store – of course, dressed in Tory Burch pieces, mostly from the Spring 2014 collection, which will banish your winter blues.

Kiernan Shipka: The ‘Mad Men’ actress was by far my favourite at this event. She’s only 14, but I’m always inspired by her red carpet looks. On this occasion she donned a pretty floral embroidered Tory Burch Spring 2014 tunic-style top with matching pants styled with a mirrored Tory Burch minaudiere to round out her uber-chic look, which wouldn’t look out of place on the French Riviera.

Hailee Steinfeld: While I love Hailee’s Tory Burch Spring 2014 ‘Emily’ A-line embellished dress, I wish she’d opted to go sans tights, especially considering she styled the look perfectly, giving it an edge with Tory Burch mirrored ‘Sadie’ slingbacks and a ladylike top-handle bag. The beehive ‘do was a great finishing touch to her ’60s-inspired frock.

Jessica Alba: I often see Jessica wearing Tory Burch pieces in her everyday life, so I was not surprised to see her show her support. Keeping the metallic theme going, she wore a striped cropped top from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection styled with a green freckled-print single pleat skirt from the Spring 2014 collection with the celeb-favourite white pumps.

Ahna O’Reilly In Thakoon – InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Ahna O'Reilly In Thakoon - InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

After a busy weekend which saw her attend the Art of Elysium gala and Diane von Furstenberg’s Journey of a Dress Exhibition, Ahna O’Reilly attended several Golden Globe Award after-parties on Sunday (January 12), including the one hosted by InStyle and Warner Bros. in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress, who has been showcasing a lot of love for print and colour lately, opted for a black Thakoon Pre-Fall 2013 strapless dress on this occasion.

Wearing an LBD with a twist, the A-line silhouetted piece features an abstract flutter peplum and floral embroidery at the front panel.

Keeping accessories to a minimum, she wore dual-colour black-and-white Sophia Webster ‘Nicole’ strappy sandals and onyx earrings, completing her look with a half-up, half-down hairstyle.

A refreshing twist on an LBD or a tad overworked?

Diane Von Furstenberg’s Journey Of A Dress Exhibition

Diane Von Furstenberg's Journey Of A Dress Exhibition 1The opening-party premiere of Diane Von Furstenberg’s ‘Journey of a Dress’ exhibition brought out a constellation of fashionable femmes (and fans) to preview the show at the Wilshire May Company Building in Los Angeles, California on Friday (January 10). Naturally, all the girls had on the best DVF designs.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Putting some sizzle into her strut, the actress vamped it up just a bit in a wrap jumpsuit, accented with a satin ribbon tie at the side. I found myself liking this sexy and streamlined approach from Gwynnie, especially with that magenta-pink lip. Yes, the plunge neckline is significant, but she’s perhaps one of the few that can make it work to her advantage.

Allison Williams: Looking as classically chic as ever, the ‘Girls’ starlet was oh-so-mod in a monochromatic ‘Amelia’ wrap dress with a flirty, graphic-patterned twirl skirt, from the Spring 2014 collection. She put a twist on the still-trending white pump with her Jimmy Choo ‘Madien’ pumps that were accented with a black ankle-strap and heel. Raising the girly look to a vintage-glam level, she styled her hair into a retro faux bob and painted on a deep-red lip.

Rooney Mara: The actress stayed in her black comfort zone in an asymmetrical dress topped off with a black satin ribbon. A tightly swept-back ‘do and oxblood lip added a more severe note to the loose frock—so, too, did the strange, one-shoulder jacket sleeve.

Ahna O’Reilly In Osman – Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Ahna O'Reilly In Osman - Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Ahna O’Reilly joined Nina Dobrev, Ashley Madekwe and Camilla Belle at the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Fruitville Station’ actress wore a strapless column Osman gown from the Spring 2013 collection.

The white backdrop on the carpet isn’t doing Ahna any favors here, because it seems to wash her out, but the simple white and gold aesthetic of the gown actually look quite lovely on her.

Pairing the look with simple gold jewelry and a gold box clutch let the gown’s texture be the focal point.

A sleek but casual updo, bold brows and her coral lips are the perfectly compliments to the white and metallic theme.

Antonio Berardi Private Dinner Party

Antonio Berardi Private Dinner Party

Antonio Berardi has long been a favourite of Hollywood starlets and stylists so it was about time he met his loyal fans, and they met the man behind the impeccably tailored, sexy frocks which ensure their well-dressed status when Peroni hosted a private dinner party at Mr Chow’s in Beverly Hills for the man of the hour on Tuesday (January 7).

Kate Beckinsale: Supporting a fellow Brit, Kate sported her favoured ponytail wearing a monochrome racer-neck sheath dress from Antonio Berardi’s Resort 2014 collection which showcases that impeccable tailoring mentioned earlier. Not only does it give her an amazing silhouette, but the panels also give her the illusion of a tiny waist – not that she needs it. Black sandals and. Kotur clutch completed her look.

Nicole Richie: Opting for a look with a looser fit and more of an edge, Nicole, a long-time fan of the designer, wore a black-satin and nude-silk-chiffon zip-front dress with a rise-and-fall hemline from the Spring 2014 collection paired with a gold choker, over-the-knee black boots and a black ponyskin coat.

Hollywood Reporter’s 22nd Annual Women In Entertainment Breakfast

Hollywood Reporter's 22nd annual Women In Entertainment Breakfast 3A list of lovelies gathered for The Hollywood Reporter’s 22nd annual Women In Entertainment Breakfast, honouring Oprah Winfrey, which was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California this morning.

Naya Rivera: The ‘Glee’ star was the epitome of sophistication in a black Michael Kors bodysuit and grey peplum tweed skirt that was punctuated with a long peplum; the sexiness came into play with the backless detail of her top. Marina B jewels and Casadei ankle-strap heels added some edge to her ensemble, whilst those long bombshell waves packed in plenty of va-va-voom style.

Ahna O’Reilly: Working a dizzying Osman Pre-Fall 2013 dress in a black-and-silver optical illusion print, the actress paired her look with black Bionda Castana ‘Consuelo’ ankle-tie heels, W. Britt stud earrings and a bright pink lip.

Nikki Reed: Taming the luscious lemon hue of her Charles Henry gown, Nikki threw on a black Loft blazer. What bothered me here were her black Greymer ankle boots that were far too heavy at the end of this soft, languid frock. Her look was complete with a Jimmy Choo ‘Chilli’ clutch.
