Burberry ‘London In Los Angeles’ Event

Burberry 'London In Los Angeles' Event

Burberry celebrated its ‘London In Los Angeles’ event, which took place at the iconic Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California. As with any Burberry event, there were of course many celebrities in attendance.

Jaime King: I am not sure what kind of statement the actress was trying to make here, but words fail me.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: Oozing sex appeal without trying, the British actress, who is very much part of the Burberry family, wore a contrast print mini from the Fall 2015 collection. I’m sure even the ‘Legs or Boobs’ police will let off the model for looking so drop dead gorgeous.

Rose Byrne: The sheer trend was a hot one on this red carpet. Unlike Jaime, I don’t feel repelled by this look as Rose pulls off this look with style and effortless grace. The gold accessories really enhanced the luxe feel of this look.

‘Dior & I’ LA Premiere

Dior & I LA Premiere

A chic set of Dior-clad darlings were at the Los Angeles premiere of The Orchard’s ‘Dior & I’ held at LACMA on Wednesday (April 15) in Los Angeles, California.

Jaime King: The pregnant actress was positively radiant in a Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2015 red wool dress that received the glitter treatment with a pink sequin top. She also wore a Dior matching red clutch, Dior black patent boots, and Dior pearl earrings. I can’t help smile at this happy look and its retro flair—right down to the bubblegum-pink lip.

Britt Robertson
: The starlet was charming in a Dior white compact Milano wool jersey dress with sequin embellishment. A Dior clutch, deep burgundy lip, and glossy curls enhanced the swingy little frock.

Ashley Madekwe: Dressed in a Dior Spring 2015 white and green jacquard cotton coat dress, she accessorized with a Dior clutch, black Dior pumps, and Dior earrings. The flash of silver metallic in the bag added a spark to the more angular, structured lines of the dress with minimalistic makeup completing the directional look.

Ashley Madekwe In ASOS – ‘Salem’ Press Junket

A photo posted by Ashley Madekwe (@smashleybell) on

Ashley Madekwe posted a picture of herself on Instagram this weekend while attending a press junket for her hit show ‘Salem’.

Looking as lovely as ever, the British actress continues to show love for high-street British retailers by donning a green frock from ASOS.

Sweetly sophisticated, this frock is infused with urbanite military inspirations to showcase her effortless style.

I love this look for its effortless drop-waist design and flirty pleated skirt, but it’s the Topshop python sandals that really set my heart a flutter.

Ashley Madekwe In Banana Republic – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Ashley Madekwe In Banana Republic - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Ashley Madekwe was also at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, held at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Like Poppy Delevingne, the actress took a high-street approach in a custom, monochromatic three-piece ivory suit from Banana Republic.

Impeccably tailored, the menswear-inspired look has the distinction of being classically timeless yet completely current. I also love that she wore the blazer swung across her shoulders like a cape.

There’s power in the plunge, and this mannish ensemble doesn’t forget its sexier side with a deep V neckline and streamlined silhouette that commands attention. So, too, does that ruby red lip.

Très chic.

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab hosted an event in LA on Thursday (November 13), finally getting a chance to meet all those ladies who he helps secure best-dressed status whenever they wear his gowns.

Ashley Madekwe: The gorgeous actress was by far my favourite at this event, wearing a teal look from the Spring 2015 collection styled with a cream Elie Saab clutch. It’s a typically chic offering, easy, effortless, tailored to perfection, with plenty of feminine appeal. I’m crushing on her new bangs too. This is a BDOTW contender if ever I saw one.

Lily Collins: The lady of the hour must have been Lily Collins, who had a breathtaking turn on the red carpet a few weeks ago wearing an Elie Saab ombre Couture gown which I’m pretty confident will be top of many BDOTY lists. Going for something less dramatic on this occasion, the actress wore an uber-chic short jumpsuit from the Spring 2015 collection spliced with a lace sleeve and ruffled detail, which she styled with a black Elie Saab bag and Louboutins. No Lily Collins look would be complete without a bold lip.

Ashley Madekwe In Giorgio Armani – 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala

Ashley Madekwe In Giorgio Armani - 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala

Ashley Madekwe attended the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala honouring Tom Ford held at Milk Studios on Wednesday (October 29) in Hollywood, California.

Ever since she was perched in the front row for Emporio Armani’s Spring 2015 show during Milan Fashion Week, I have been waiting for an Armani moment from the stylish actress and here it is.

The metallic shimmering silver strapless gown with an embellished bodice and pleated skirt set the right tone for the glamorous evening.

When it comes to accessories, Ashley’s motto has always been less is more (quite the opposite to Olivia Palermo), so here she simply added diamond stud earrings, with silver peep-toes and flawless makeup proving the finishing touches.

Are you as enamoured by this effortless offering?
