Alicia Vikander In Roksanda Ilincic – Guldbaggen Awards

Alicia Vikander In Roksanda Ilincic - Guldbaggen Awards

Alicia Vikander attended the Guldbaggen Awards hosted in her hometown, Stockholm, Sweden on Monday (January 20).

Opting for a very colourful look, the young actress wore a striking blue Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2014 gown.

It’s the architectural sleeves and cobalt-blue hue of this ‘Waverly’ silk dress that make it a signature Roksanda Ilincic frock.

A two-tone slit puts a further contemporary spin on this look, with Nicholas Kirkwood wedges and a gold-and-blue Stark ‘Seductress’ clutch accessorizing the look and a simple ponytail and smoky eyes providing the finishing touches.

I’m captivated by it all. From the colour to the sleeve detailing, and especially the styling.

Alicia Vikander In Barbara Casasola – ‘The Railway Man’ Event

Alicia Vikander In Barbara Casasola - 'The Railway Man' Event

Alicia Vikander attended her second event during Toronto Film Festival, taking to the red carpet at ‘Live at The Hive’ on Friday evening for ‘The Railway Man’ event presented By Sodastream.

The Swedish actress wore a two-tone grey Barbara Casasola Fall 2013 dress with a bustier-inspired construction at the bodice, pleating and fringe detailing at the front and a contrast black back.

Barbara Casasola is fast establishing herself as a queen of modern elegance with her pared-back occasion wear and this look couldn’t be a more perfect example of that.

Black satin pumps with a colourful floral print and a silver bracelet accessorized her look.

I don’t think this girl has ever had a bad day on the red carpet. Long may that continue.

Alicia Vikander In Erdem – ‘The Fifth Estate’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Alicia Vikander In Erdem - 'The Fifth Estate' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) is finally here, and judging by the looks which took to the red carpet for ‘The Fifth Estate’ premiere in Toronto, Canada last night, it already puts the whole of Venice Film Festival (aka Snoozefest 2013) into the shade.

Alicia Vikander was the very definition of elegance in her majestic Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 jacquard gown, with her skin glowing against its rich shades of deep-water-blue and pretty pink florals.

The decision to make this all about the dress is what makes this look work so well, with a simple centre-parted ‘do and barely there makeup completing her look.

I know what you’re thinking. You’ve seen this before.

Well, Marion Cotillard wore the short-sleeved version of this dress and Keira Knightley wore the same Erdem strapless dress in a different colour with lace embroidery.

Chanel The Little Black Jacket Exhibition: Beijing

Chanel The Little Black Jacket Beijing

The Little Black Jacket exhibition hosted by Chanel was presented in Beijing, China yesterday evening with a mix of local celebs and Chanel ambassadresses.

Zhou Xun: No stranger to wearing Chanel, the Asian beauty looked like a delicate porcelain doll, wearing a black-and-white Chanel Spring 2013 Couture sequin dress featuring floral embroidery. Everything about her look is so sculptured, right down to her bowl haircut. The only thing I would change about the look is the platform stripper-like heels.

Zhang Ziyi: The actress was the picture of elegance once again, wearing a chic yet laidback look from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. I didn’t see much red carpet potential from this collection considering how heavily layered each piece was presented. However, I love that Ziyi stripped back the layers to give us this beautiful look, which she styled with a Chanel Fall 2012 silver belt and Chanel Fine jewelry. Step back people, she’s on a roll.

Alicia Vikander: The Swedish actress wore a summery look from the Chanel Resort 2013 collection. Her flirty blue lace top and skirt was styled with an ocean-blue-and-white clutch and striped blue-and-white Chanel Resort 2013 shoes to add a nautical vibe to her sophisticated look.

Alicia Vikander In Elie Saab Couture – 2013 Oscars

Alicia Vikander In Elie Saab Couture - 2013 Oscars

Alicia Vikander continued her impressive run on the red carpet when she attended the 2013 Oscars on Sunday evening.

Still a relative unknown, the Swedish actress continues to wear Couture designs from the top ateliers which many actresses with more red carpet mileage under their waist-nipping belts can only dream about.

On this occasion she wore an exquisite Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gown.

Her powder-blue fully embroidered gown with an open-back which was accented with bold belt couldn’t be more perfect for her, but the hair and makeup aged her drastically.

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton - 2013 Elle Style AwardsCheck mate! Alicia Vikander literally didn’t venture outside the box at Monday evening’s 2013 Elle Style Awards at the Savoy Hotel in London.

The Swedish actress wasn’t about to be left out of the checquerboard game that was Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2013 runway.

She was hip to be square, showing off her legs (and a lot more, too) in her abbreviated frock from the incredibly popular collection. It wasn’t quite as see-through as the dress on the model, thanks to some strategically placed underlining.

The geometry continued with her boxy, Smythson ‘Floating Envelope’ clutch, and I loved that she borrowed inspiration from the yellow runway with her pointy Christian Louboutin ‘Batignolles’ pumps.

Radiant makeup and pretty curls completed this look from one of our Ones to Watch in 2013.

We’ve seen the checquered trend played out so many times before on the red carpet, so now I say what’s another time.

Did this Editor’s Choice award winner win your vote with her sheer love of LV?
