Alice Englert In Acne Studios – ‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ Sydney Premiere

Alice Englert joined Nicole Kidman at the ‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ Sydney premiere in Australia on Tuesday (August 1).

Swimming through an Acne Studios draped, floral dress, the starlet seemed to be inspired by a long nightgown for her night out on the red carpet.

Her styling didn’t help the cause either, beginning with the fact that her hair and seemingly non-existent makeup were a mere afterthought at best.

Nor do the white pumps win any points from me.

She has so much potential; I just wish she would put it to work.

‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ – Television Critics Association Press Tour

The 2017 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour brought out four femmes behind ‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ for a panel discussion on Saturday (July 29) in Beverly Hills, California.

Elisabeth Moss: I always find myself slightly underwhelmed by Elisabeth’s style, as I think she often dresses too maturely. This Camilla and Mark pleated frock fell somewhat in that category, although the brighter colour and print was a step in the right direction. However, the high neckline isn’t the most flattering or youth-achieving for her.

Gwendoline Christie: While Gwendoline’s 6’3” height will always command attention, I was bored with her choice of menswear-inspired ensembles as she can do so much more with her statuesque form than this standard-issue silk blouse and black trousers uniform.

Nicole Kidman: With a rosy outlook, Nicole donned a dainty Rochas Resort 2018 embroidered ruffle dress. I always like seeing her channel a softer, feminine side, but the illusion neckline and overbearing sleeves quickly ruined me on this prairie frock.

Alice Englert: Marching to the beat of her own style drum, Alice kept it quirky and casual in her plaid shirt and boyfriend jeans, topped off with sculpted teal sandals for a style-rebel look that certainly made no apologies.

Clearly, there was no fashion pow-wow prior to this panel, given this highly eclectic, motley mix of looks.

Alice Englert In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Beautiful Creatures’ LA Premiere

Alice Englert In Elie Saab Couture - ‘Beautiful Creatures’ LA Premiere

Alice Englert joined co-star Emmy Rossum on the red carpet on Wednesday evening at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California for the ‘Beautiful Creatures’ premiere.

As much as I loved this Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture pale-blue-and-gold brocade long-sleeved embellished fit-and-flare dress on the runway, I didn’t expect to see it on the red carpet.

Why? Because I thought it would be considered too costumey for a red carpet look, but Alice proves me wrong.

While the look does have a very theatrical feel to it, Alice carries the look very gracefully.

I find myself very disappointed with the shoe choice, however. They feel very muted considering the matching clutch and wild, wavy red tresses.

How do you feel about this look?

Too costumey or enough drama to keep you interested?

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better…Kirsten Dunst, Huo Siyan or Alice Englert?

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better Kirsten Dunst, Huo Siyan or Alice Englert

Back in July, Kirsten Dunst hit the opening of Louis Vuitton’s latest boutique in Paris in a look from – what else? – Louis Vuitton’s 2013 resort collection. The actress paired the slightly casual maxi dress with a gold LV clutch, light makeup, and soft blonde waves.

The retro look of this dress is a tough one to pull off, but Kirsten got everything right with the accessory and styling choices.

Fellow actresses Alice Englert and Huo Siyan, however, didn’t show Kirsten’s flare for rocking the flower-child maxi look when they both donned the same dress this past fall.

Huo Siyan overshot her ensemble by copying the runway version of the look to the letter with a LV cardigan and blazer, which she wore to the L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards in Beijing back in October.

She let the dress and layered pieces overwhelm her small frame. The result was too matchy-matchy and lacking any real sense of sophistication or high style.

Alice took to the red carpet in LA during early November for the screening of ‘Ginger and Rosa’ at AFI FEST 2012 and simply went too minimal. The dress looked too casual without any luxe touches or sense of sparkle.

The clear winner in this battle of the patterned maxi dresses is Kirsten Dunst.
