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.

Get The Look: Bella Thorne’s Waves and Braids

Bella Thorne

Bella Thorne’s laidback outfit on the red carpet of the DigiFest LA may have been casual, but her pretty strands were holiday party worthy. The look is perfect for any festivity; the wispy waves add glamour in the front and the deconstructed braids are sure to grab everyone’s attention. Not to mention, those bangs that perfectly framed Bella’s face.

LA based hairstylist, Cesar Ramirez, says the key to getting the voluminous waves is to create volume from the roots. Before adding heat, he prepped her locks with the Alterna Caviar Style Prep.

Instead of turning to a curling iron, the waves were created by using a flat iron. Make sure to opt for one with large ceramic plates, which ensures even heat distribution throughout each strand. Cesar chose the Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Styling Iron to style the tousled strands.

Creating the braids is surprisingly easier than it looks. Grab a section from the left side and begin French braiding. Ramirez said, “The trick is to drop off a piece of the braid after each criss-cross while making your way over to the opposite side.”

Once you’ve made it across, French braid the right side, this time adding the dropped strands in with the second braid.  Ensure your braids and waves stay in place with hairpins and Alterna Caviar Working Spray.

Don’t stress if the braids slightly unravel throughout the night. Softness is key to this look and deconstruction only helps.

Bella Thorne In Rebecca Minkoff – DigiFest LA

Bella Thorne In Rebecca Minkoff - DigiFest LA

Bella Thorne attended DigiFest LA held at the Hollywood Palladium on Saturday (December 14) in Hollywood, California.

Known for her love of cutesy dresses, the actress worked a super laidback red carpet look on this occasion, wearing a Rebecca Minkoff Resort 2014 look consisting of a ‘Skyline’ metallic-silver-and-black crochet top with slouchy ‘Malone’ tweed pants with solid panels and a drawstring waist.

I would’ve expected Bella to have styled this look with a cute pair of strappy sandals, but she committed to her casual look, wearing black-and-white lug-sole boots.

Keeping one element of her look super girlie, she styled her wavy tresses into a half-up, half-down braided ‘do.

I personally prefer the lookbook styling, but I love that Bella made this look her own.

Bella Thorne In Blumarine – ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ LA Premiere

Bella Thorne In Blumarine - 'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' LA Premiere

Bella Thorne joined in the fun on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday evening.
The young actress wore a Blumarine Spring 2014 nude sheer dress with white floral embroidery and a strapless corseted underlay.

I’m surprised to see this dress on the red carpet again so soon, as you may remember Kacey Musgraves wore it just 11 days ago to the CMA Awards.

Bella styled her look simply with a braided updo, an Edie Parker clutch and gold bracelet, deciding against the more playful styling she is known for and opting to keep the sweet, ethereal nature of the look intact.

Bella Thorne In House of Holland – Flaunt Magazine En Garde! Issue Launch Party

Bella Thorne In House of Holland - Flaunt Magazine En Garde! Issue Launch Party

Bella Thorne attended the Flaunt Magazine En Garde! issue launch party, alongside its cover girl Selena Gomez and Lily Collins, at the Hakkasan Restaurant in Beverly Hills, California last night.

The star didn’t stray from her colourful dressing M.O., selecting an embellished white and coral House of Holland top and coordinating navy-and-coral pleated House of Holland skirt for the night’s festivities. The quirky set showed off just a sliver of midriff, allowing for most of the attention to be paid to the dramatic puffed sleeves and playful print.

Her blue Charlotte Olympia peep-toe pumps, sparkly silver Edie Parker clutch, and blue-jeweled Dannijo earrings kept the bright and bold theme going strong, as did her matching frosted blue eyeshadow.

While nothing is flagrantly wrong with this outfit — she’s young, having fun, and experimenting with whimsical pieces — I am not a big fan of the coordinated accessories. It felt too put together when there was clearly an outlet to take a more irreverent approach to finishing details.

How do you feel about Bella Thorne’s latest look?
