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.

Ahna O’Reilly In Tory Burch – Stella Artois’ Crystal Chalice Launch Event

Ahna O'Reilly In Tory Burch - Stella Artois' Crystal Chalice Launch Event

Ahna O’Reilly attended a launch event for Stella Artois’ Crystal Chalice in New York City yesterday evening.

The ‘Fruitvale Station’ actress wore a Tory Burch royal-gold dress which couldn’t be more season appropriate with its decorative-arts influence.

The intricate cut-out design, made from lustrous silk-blend cloqué, features a uniquely raised tactile surface with a vibrant plum-coloured underlay and the glitter of bugle beads, creating an effect of tonal and textural brilliance.

Ahna added plum-coloured Tory Burch ‘Carley’ booties, which have a mannish element with the double monk strap, with the plush velvet feel giving them a feminine edge; however, they feel too heavy for this rich-textured mini dress.

Completing her head-to-toe Tory Burch look, she carried a wine-coloured ‘Adele’ resin minaudière with an artful design and leather fringe detailing.

Is there too much going on here for your liking?

I would only ditch the shoes here.

Ahna O’Reilly In Bibhu Mohapatra – Who What Wear And Cadillac’s 50 Most Fashionable Women Of 2013

Ahna O'Reilly In Bibhu Mohapatra - Who What Wear And Cadillac's 50 Most Fashionable Women Of 2013

Ahna O’Reilly joined Jessica Alba at the Who What Wear and Cadillac’s 50 Most Fashionable Women of 2013 event, hosted yesterday evening at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California.

The actress was feeling blue in her deep cerulean, silver and black Bibhu Mohapatra Resort 2014 dress that featured a mixed scroll-print pattern and plunging bodice with bandeau bralette detail.

She accessorized simply with a light dusting of jewels, including rings and Melinda Maria Matchstick earrings, along with black, ankle-strap sandals.

While her blue smokey eye beautifully picked up the shades of the dress, I would have preferred to see her flame-red locks in an updo on this occasion.
