Ashley Madekwe & Ahna O’Reilly In Monique Lhuillier – Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 Luncheon

Ashley Madekwe & Ahna O'Reilly In Monique Lhuillier - Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 Luncheon

Ashley Madekwe and Ahna O’Reilly attended the Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 luncheon held at the Monique Lhuillier Salon at Melrose Place in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday (May 20), with the ladies wearing looks from different seasons.

Ashley Madekwe: The actress went for Spring, wearing a coral re-embroidered lace shell top with a floral Lucite collar paired with a poppy guipure-lace pencil skirt. You can always rely on Ashley for a touch of flair; here she added a pair of multi-coloured Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, Rose+Stone rings and cuffs, with a hot-red lip rounding out her look.

Ahna O’Reilly: Sporting a side-swept twisted ponytail, the actress also opted for a ladylike look, with her black confetti petal-print top and skirt accented with a black patent-leather belt hailing from the Fall 2014 collection. Like Ashley, Ahna didn’t skimp on the footwear, upping the ante of her look with a metallic-gold pair of Jimmy Choos.

I think both looks are very chic and elegant for the occasion. It’s impossible for me to pick a favourite. Can you?

Fendi and Elle Magazine Celebrate an Original Collaboration with The Coveteur

Fendi and Elle Magazine Celebrate an Original Collaboration with The Coveteur

Following the celebration of the new Fendi boutique in London, a host of starlets took to the Fendi boutique in Beverly Hills, California on Thursday (May 21) for an event hosted by Fendi and Elle to celebrate the original collaboration with The Coveteur and the Fendi’s Spring 2014 eyewear collection.

Emma Roberts: The actress wore a dual-colour black and pink Fendi Resort 2014 dress. I love the primness of the look which is spliced with the edgy black racer front layered top. The Fendi mini ‘Peakaboo’ perfectly accessorized her look, but I can’t say I’m too keen on the Fendi sandals.

Ahna O’Reilly: Looking at Ahna’s Fendi ‘Iridia’ orange crystal shaped sandals, I can’t help but feel that these are the shoes that Emma should’ve worn. However, they also work perfectly with Ahna’s Fendi Spring 2014 futuristic leather strapless dress and mirrored Fendi shades.

Jordana Brewster: The ‘Dallas’ actress was also wearing a impeccable head-to-toe Fendi Spring 2014 look, donning a delicate strapless coral layered dress with a laser-cut pattern beneath. She accessorized with Fendi ‘Iridia’ heels and Fendi shades.

Despite feeling like I should pick one of the more summery frocks, Ahna’s edgier look is easily my favourite here.

Ahna O’Reilly In Elie Saab – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Ahna O'Reilly In Elie Saab - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Ahna O’Reilly also attended the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted on Saturday (March 1) at Santa Monica Beach in California.

The actress skipped a frock in favour of an Elie Saab Spring 2014 ensemble, consisting of a creamy-white top, embellished in watercolour florals, and matching high-waisted, tailored pants.

While we certainly aren’t accustomed to seeing a non-gown Elie Saab moment on the red carpet, this look had the potential to be every bit as stunning as those dresses.

However, I was missing the crisp, bright appeal that captivated me on the runway. A victim perhaps of poor styling, the chic separates were weighed down by clunky Aldo platform sandals and a garish hot-pink clutch.

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?
