Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Freida Pinto, Carey Mulligan Michelle Dockery & Gabrielle Union In Miu Miu - Miu Miu Women's Tales

Several celebs attended the Miu Miu Women’s Tales screening during the 2013 Venice International Film Festival in Italy this afternoon.

Freida Pinto: I’m usually a big fan of Freida’s style, but this bright-red Miu Miu dress with a black button panel with a zipper detail …dare I say… looks very cheap and the whole thing reads sloppy to me. Very disappointed.

Carey Mulligan: Even though I am not a fan of sunglasses on the red carpet, Carey fared much better wearing a simple black silk Miu Miu frock with a white Peter Pan collar, which is the second look which has a back-to-school vibe I have seen this week.

Michelle Dockery: Also opting for red, the British actress wore a Miu Miu silk crepe-de-chine loose-fit mini dress with two front patch pockets. I am picturing her shuffling along the red carpet, because those black pumps look so heavy. I’m also not a fan of the clutch; it feels like it is there just for advertising purposes as it also doesn’t complement her frock.

Gabrielle Union: The beautiful actress graced the red carpet wearing a floaty sheer black Miu MIu dress with a red velvet panel which has an autumnal feel that I can’t get excited about.

In summary, with the exception of Carey, none of these looks is working for me. I can find fault with each look.

BOSS Shanghai Fashion Show

HUGO BOSS hosted a spectacular event in Shanghai. The museum “Power Station of Art” venued an impressive fashion show presenting the BOSS Mens- and Womenswear Collections for Winter 2013.
They invited several guests from around the globe.

Carey Mulligan: The British actress posed alongside Claus-Dietrich Lahrs, CEO of Hugo Boss, wearing a BOSS all-black look featuring a blazer, a satin-trimmed bustier and tapered pants, with her favourite Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals and a red lip colour completing her look. This is a really chic look; however, I wish she would wear a colour other than black.

Michelle Chen: The actress obliged, wearing a bold orange-hued strapless BOSS gown with a bronze clutch, which is in total contrast to the all-black look worn by Carey.

Gerard Butler: The handsome actor looked very dapper decked out in a classic BOSS black suit. I would’ve loved it had he selected one of the more colourful suits which were presented in this show.

Carey Mullgian In Christian Dior - Tiffany & Co 'The Great Gatsby' Dinner

Carey Mulligan attended the Tiffany & Co ‘Great Gatsby’ dinner at Rockpool in Sydney, Australia on Thursday evening.

The British actress has been sticking to a minimalistic look throughout her promo tour, in what appears to be a conscious effort to look the total opposite to her character in the movie.

While even I have celebrated her simplistic efforts, this is just one minimalistic look too many for my liking.

Carey wore a black Dior cap-sleeve gown which doesn’t provide much of a talking point at all.

Had the dress been a few inches shorter we would’ve gotten a chance to see what appear to be neon-green Dior pumps.

Have you come to the end of the minimalistic line, or are you still thirsty for more?

Carey Mulligan In Nina Ricci - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere

Following a short trip to promote her new movie ‘The Great Gatsby’ in Cannes last week, Carey Mulligan took to the red carpet at Moore Park in Australia for the Sydney premiere.

Despite the wet conditions, Carey opted for an arm-baring look from the Nina Ricci Fall 2013 collection.

Having stuck to a black-and-white colour palette during Cannes, this look featured a Chantilly lace blush-coloured bustier paired with black cropped pants, rather than the skirt this look was presented with on the runway.

Many of you will be delighted to discover that Carey’s makeup artist travelled with her on this leg of her promo tour. Just that pink lip colour alone brightens up her face, preventing her from looking so washed out and tired.

Giving her Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ peep-toes a break, the British actress wore Saint Laurent t-bar sandals on this occasion, with Tiffany jewels and wavy tresses completing her look.

Carey Mulligan In Vionnet - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Carey Mulligan attended the premiere for her latest movie, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’, during Cannes Film Festival working summers hottest trend, black-and-white.

Her white Vionnet Fall 2013 gown with a central slit and keyhole detail features a black satin neckline which she completed with her favourite Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals.

I once again love the simplicity of the look. I don’t know how, but she is totally winning me over with this minimalist run.

Carey not only kept the same hair and makeup from the photocall earlier in the afternoon, but she also opted to not wear any jewels.

Were you expecting more, or are you swept away like I am?

Justin is looking so very devilishly handsome his tux.

Carey Mulligan In Chloé - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

The gorgeous Carey Mulligan is having quite a busy time during Cannes Film Festival, as she was back at the Palais des Festivals in France today following ‘The Great Gatsby’ premiere on Wednesday.

This time she was promoting her new film ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ at photocall with co-stars Justin Timberlake and Garrett Hedlund.

Black was again her colour of choice; this time selecting a look from the Chloe Fall 2013 collection.

The LBD with military-style detailing was accented with a gold buckle belt which differs from the version which took to the runway.

What also appears to be different is the silhouette. Carey’s dress is A-line, however, the runway dress appears to be more streamlined, but this could just be a result of the models outstretched legs.

Minimalist styling, as we’ve come to expect, included a barely there makeup – with a touch of pink lip colour – and black Louboutin peep-toes.

There was a 50/50 divide on her Dior Couture ‘The Great Gatsby’ premiere look, so what are your expectations for this evening?
