Ashley Madekwe In Diane Von Furstenberg – InStyle Summer Soiree

Ashley Madekwe In Diane Von Furstenberg - InStyle Summer Soiree

Putting her best (well-manicured) foot forward, Ashley Madekwe attended the 12th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree held at the Mondrian Los Angeles in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

When I think of summer soirees I think of pretty floral frocks, but Ashley didn’t play the predictable game; instead, she worked a sexy saffron-yellow Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2013 halter jumpsuit with a deep plunge and draped detailing.

Impeccable styling, as we expect from this British beauty, saw her adding a vintage Chanel No. 5 belt – a find from Very Vintage – her can’t-live-without Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ sandals, and a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch to her bold all-in-one.

A slicked-back ‘do and bold red lips completed her stunning look.

Are you crushing on this look as hard as I am?

Ashley Madekwe In J Brand – Hooray Henry’s

Ashley Madekwe In J Brand - Hooray Henry's

Ashley Madekwe enjoyed a night out at Hooray Henry’s in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening with BFF Chrisa B Allen.

The LA-based British actress was flying the flag for her homeland carrying an Alexander McQueen Union Jack clutch with her laidback summer-party look.

As someone who has been steadily growing fond of shorts (having purchased three pairs this week alone), I’m totally in love with this look, which features a breton top with J Brand ‘Libra’ cut-off shorts turned up and gold Saint Laurent sandals.

Like Diane Kruger earlier this week, this is another classic example of how statement accessories can really enhance a look.

Roksanda Ilincic’s Resort 2014 Collection Cocktail Party

Roksanda Ilincic Celebrates Resort 2014 Collection

Roksanda Ilincic presented her Resort 2014 Collection with a cocktail party held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday evening.

The Serbian-born London-based designer already has legions of celebrity fans (plus the First Lady and Prime Minister’s wife). She was on hand to guide Hollywood stars through her most recent collection so they could make their picks for their next event before anyone else.

Louise Roe: The British TV host is a girl after my own heart. She loves colour, prints and shoes that don’t fall into uninspiring territory. Her pretty pink mini dress from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection featuring an interesting floral print was styled with Monika Chiang gold ankle-strap pumps. Head to toe, j’adore.

Julianne Hough: The actress wore an incredibly chic Roksanda Ilincic colour-block patchwork boucle wool dress from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection. She may be the shortest of the pack, but the punchy colours make her stand out.

Roksanda Ilincic: The designer herself looked just as good as her guests, wearing a black-and-blue ensemble with a ‘Dayton’ contrast collar top and vibrant blue-hued ‘Brooke’ skirt from her Spring 2013 collection. Those gold-and-black t-bar pumps have me gasping for air.

Ashley Madekwe: The actress also opted for a Spring 2013 look, wearing Oste crepe black orange-collared jumpsuit which she styled without the white top it was presented with on the runway. Needless to say this jumpsuit has been in my wishlist since hitting Net-A-Porter.com.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: Of all the attendees at the event, Mary is the one who has worn Roksanda’s beautiful designs on more than one occasion. She accessorized her pale-pink Fall 2013 strapless dress with a black patent-leather waistband, Joe’s ‘Ollie’ canvas black pumps, a matching pink Nancy Gonzalez crocodile box clutch, Aprillah earrings, and rings by Elahn and Soffer Ari, styling her look with a chic updo and a bright fuchsia-pink lip colour. Had she opted for black sandals this look would have been perfection.

Who catches your eye from this beautifully styled, colourful group of ladies?

Ashley Madekwe In Cushnie Et Ochs – 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Ashley Madekwe In Cushnie Et Ochs - 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Ashley Madekwe attended the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday evening.

The ‘Revenge’ star joined Karlie Kloss by wearing a dress from Cushnie et Ochs.

Her summery aqua Spring 2013 neoprene scuba dress with a customary cut-out detail was styled with a pair of on-trend white pumps and a gold Charlotte Olympia clutch.

After sporting bangs for a short period, the actress has reverted back to a centre-parted ‘do, opting for natural wavy tresses.

Like many others at this event, Ashley opted for a neutral look beauty-wise, with a nude matte lip colour completing her look.

Ashley Madekwe In Topshop – BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate The British New Wave at Topshop

Ashley Madekwe In Topshop - BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate the British New Wave at Topshop Topman at The Grove

On Tuesday, Ashley Madekwe turned out for the BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate the British New Wave event, hosted at Topshop Topman at The Grove in Los Angeles, California.

Naturally, the ‘Revenge’ actress pledged her allegiance to Topshop with this exploded-check dungaree jumpsuit, worn with simple black sandals and a black, copper-accented clutch.

And, in so doing, she further extended my love of the jumpsuit—even one inspired by overalls.

While not all starlets could carry off this mannish moment nor the peg-pant silhouette, Ashley did so with stylish aplomb.

Loose waves and nude makeup softened the masculine edge, and a gold charm necklace added a glint of shine.

Ashley Madekwe In Monique Lhuillier – 34th College Television Awards Gala

Ashley Madekwe In Monique Lhuillier - 34th College Television Awards Gala

Ashley Madekwe attended the 34th College Television Awards Gala held at JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, California yesterday evening.

She wore a look with a striking marine-blue wave print which is instantly recognisable from the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013 collection.

Her figure-flattering look features a peplum top and pencil skirt, styled with a chartreuse Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch and Jimmy Choo ‘Greta’ sandals.

I adore the mix of colours here, especially when topped off with the pretty pink lip colour.

You may remember that Leslie Mann wore a Monique Lhuillier dress with the same print late last year.
