GQ Men Of The Year Party

GQ Men Of The Year PartyIt’s no surprise that Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o weren’t the only ones cutting handsome—and pretty—profiles at the GQ 2013 ‘Men of the Year’ party, hosted last night in Los Angeles, California. There was plenty more eye candy to spare.

James Van Der Beek: The actor brought out his own baby blues in a Todd Snyder ensemble, ratcheting up his grey plaid suit with a blue shirt, lighter tie and mixed-print pocket square. The grand finale of the look, though, were those blue shoelaces on his brown loafers.

Darby Stanchfield: Decked out in a burgundy-red Emilio De La Morena Fall 2012 gown, the ‘Scandal’ star mixed sophistication and edginess with this streamlined, lacquered-bodice dress, which actually set off her slicked-back, flame-toned locks. You may remember Julianne Hough previously wore this gown.

Chace Crawford: The actor opted for a light dove-grey, wool two-button small notch lapel suit by Dior Homme, which he wore with a white cotton, button-down shirt, black silk tie and black leather derbies. Something about the suit wasn’t as sizzling as his stare.

Darby Stanchfield In Chagoury – 2013 Environmental Media Awards

Darby Stanchfield In Chagoury - 2013 Environmental Media Awards

Darby Stanchfield rocked the ladylike look at the 2013 Environmental Media Awards held at the Warner Bros. lot on Saturday.

She was a vision in black lace, wearing an A-line Chagoury creation which boasted an illusion, embellished neckline and three-quarter length sleeves.

The ‘Scandal’ actress went minimal with accessories, adding only a thin gold bracelet and satin, pointed-toe pumps.

There’s no question that her feminine ensemble is both flattering and age-appropriate, though the overall effect leans toward matronly.

A looser, more voluminous hairstyle and swinging chandelier earrings would have gone a long way to liven up the look.

Darby Stanchfield In Valentino – Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Darby Stanchfield In Valetino - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Darby Stanchfield attended Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon alongside her ‘Scandal’ co-star Katie Lowes.

The beautiful actress wore a pastel-hued, graphic floral print Valentino short sleeve frock with a nipped in waist which is an exquisitely fresh and feminine look.

Giving the fancy frock somewhat of an edge, she styled with an Oscar Tiye black leather studded clutch and gold pumps with a black accent.

Neutral makeup and a chic bun completed her look.

Do you like her black and gold accessories, or would you have preferred something more colour co-ordinated?

You can buy Darby’s Valentino Floral Bumbalina Dress from Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, farfetch.com US, farfetch.com, Saks.com, Saks.com UK.

Darby Stanchfield & Katie Lowes ‘Scandal’ Season 3 Premiere

Darby Stanchfield & Katie Lowes 'Scandal' Season 3 Premiere

Darby Stanchfield and Katie Lowes joined Kerry Washington at the recent ‘Scandal’ Season 3 premiere at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City, where their red-carpet entrances couldn’t have been more different.

Darby Stanchfield: The actress donned a Georges Hobeika gown with a grey embellished bodice and off-white chiffon skirt. But even her auburn waves and radiant blush-toned makeup, I was sensing a drabness here, although it was expounded with her distracting, oversized white clutch.

Katie Lowes: Skipping the gown and going straight to the cocktail frock, Katie wore a strapless red Rachel Roy design with gold jewellery and silvery Jean-Michel Cazabat shoes, which was too many mixed metals for my taste. A magenta lip added even more contrasting colours.

With Kerry’s Prada prairie dress added to the lineup of these two ladies’ rather lacklustre looks, this premiere was definitely trending on the fashionably eclectic side. Perhaps it was more of a style scandal than anything else. Do you agree?

InStyle Summer Soiree 2013

InStyle Summer Soiree

There were many more lovely ladies who attended the InStyle Summer Soiree held at the Mondrian Los Angeles in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

Darby Stanchfield: The ‘Scandal’ actress instantly caught my eye, not only because of the striking contrast between her gorgeous flame-red beehive and electric-blue drop-waist Paper London dress, but mostly because of her pronounced eyebrows, which gave the look a futuristic vibe, further punctuated by her sculptural Kzeniya clutch and Emporio Armani silver pumps.

Ashley Tisdale: Although this sleeveless Clover Canyon ‘Orchid Trip’ neoprene dress is very much expected from Ashley, I love the soft pastel pieces styled with the look. The black clutch is very much the odd man out here.

Analeigh Tipton: The actress was one of many who also opted for neutral tones, wearing a chic tunic top and matching trousers by Ermanno Scervino accented with a black waistband. Opting not to go with black accessories, she wore white Casadei sandals and carried a gold Stark clutch, with Dannijo earrings completing the look.
