InStyle’s Summer Soiree Red Carpet Round Up

Here are the rest of the looks from InStyle’s Summer Soiree, which took place at The London Hotel in West Hollywood last night.

Emilie De Ravin: The Australian actress wore a pretty blue lace dress by the Australian brand Zimmermann. Whilst her dress was full of the joys of summer, her navy-blue t-bar sandals feel a bit heavy and fall-like. I’m also not sure I’m used to her as a brunette; I think I prefer her as a blonde.

Nikki Reed: Each time the ‘Twilight’ actress gives me a look I love, she then puts things in reverse. Her black Jill Stuart dress with floral detailing and Alexandra Birman pumps and burgundy Lauren Merkin ‘Grace’ clutch scream ‘Hello Fall’. Great look, wrong season.

Jordana Brewster: The ‘Dallas’ star was the epitome of summer chic wearing a Bec & Bridge white silk ‘Claudia’ dress with laser-cut trim. A grey clutch, taupe Jimmy Choo ‘Trina’ sandals plus Melinda Maria jewels completed the look.Read More…

“Remember Me” UK Premiere – Emilie de Ravin In Oscar de la Renta

Tonight in London Emilie de Ravin joined British actor Robert Pattinson on the red carpet for the UK premiere of “Remember Me”.

The blonde actress wore a very cute Oscar de la Renta Spring 2010 dress.

Her black lace cap sleeve dress has a cute bow detail on the waist and a pleated skirt with organza appliqué details embroidered onto it.

It was a good idea to wear a black vest under her dress.

The skirt of Emilie’s dress is about 3 inches shorter than the runway version which I like, but the shorter dress deserved a daintier heel.

Her Brian Atwood studded ‘Loca’ pumps are gorgeous, but for me they are not right for this dress.

The strappy runway heels would’ve been perfect.

Runway To “Remember Me” New York Premiere – Emilie de Ravin In Gianfranco Ferré

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin walked the red carpet last night at the New York premiere of “Remember Me”.

No doubt all eyes were on her co-star in this movie Robert Pattinson, but I was more interested in her Gianfranco Ferré Spring 2010 dress.

The cream asymmetrical dress is also draped and knotted, but doesn’t feel to busy.

I love the dress, not so crazy about her Burberry Prorsum’s twisted band platform sandals as I wish they were slightly lighter in colour.

Maybe these particular heels were worn to complement the twisted detail on the skirt of her dress, but I would’ve picked a strappy sandal that didn’t look so heavy.

It’s been a while since Emilie looked this good on the red carpet, but is it enough for you to consider her for BDOTW?

InStyle Magazine’s Summer Soiree

I don’t think I have ever said this before in reference to Ashlee Simpson, but I LOVE what she is wearing.

Usually her look has a “I Wannabe In The Band” type of vibe to it, but here she channels a very cute, feminine summery look that I just can’t get enough of.

Her strapless shimmering champagne coloured Jill Stuart playsuit is so chic, which she pairs with pearls, a white Dolce & Gabbana clutch and grey Brian Atwood heels.

For me the best dressed at this event.

Katie Cassidy wore a modified Balenciaga leopard print dress from the Fall 2009 collection.

I love the draping detail around the hips defining the waist, with her bold multi-coloured clutch and silver strappy heels. I’m really happy black pumps are not in this picture.

I don’t know who Yvonne Strahovski is, but I knew it only took me 2 seconds to fall in love with her cute ensemble.

Her Camilla & Marc Spring 2008 striped blazer with her ivory skirt and blood red shoes has a Ralph Lauren feel to it.

Love it.

Jessica Stroup shows a bit of her sassy side wearing a shortened black strapless Rachel Roy Fall 2009 dress with lace panels.

She paired her dress with Stella McCartney black heels and a matching Sergio Rossi clutch.

I’ve loving how her bob is constantly evolving. I can barely remember how she looked with longer hair.

Jessica is neck and neck with Ashley Greene as my favourite red carpet newbie this year.

I go back and forth with everyone who wears Herve Leger. I know many of you wish these bandages dresses were burned, but some do look great.

This isn’t one of those times. Eliza Dushku is a busty lady and this type of dress doesn’t flatter.

I preferred this Herve Leger armor-trim dress on the runway with one strap rather than two, but I do love the YSL tribute sandals which complement the dress well.

Eliza also carried a bright colourful clutch.

“Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin has been MIA from the red carpet for a long while, but she makes a spectacular return wearing a beautiful ivory lace Max Azria Fall 2009 mini dress.

The runway dress is styled have more of a tougher edge, but Emile’s fully lined version appears softer although she added a studded belt to prevent her look from being too sickly sweet.

Like Alexa Chung, Cat Deeley is flying the flag for us Brits in the US but her chic style is more to my liking.

Cat wore British brands via her a white crochet Jaeger dress paired with tan Mulberry sandals.

Our English rose glows so beautifully, with clean golden locks.

Jennifer Morrison opted for a strapless orange Sonia Rykiel dress with a folded neckline and a voluminous skirt.

I love the bright colour and the cute braided hairstyle.

She pairs her look with a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Miranda Cosgrove has such an infectious smile it’s hard not to love her.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a Vena Cava Narthex tiered dress.

The brushstroke-print tiers on the bodice and hem adds a touch of colour to the cream sleeveless dress.

Dania Ramirez opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana trademark strapless bustier dress with a eyelet skirt and bright yellow heels.

Krysten Ritter wore red strappy sandals with her midnight blue Proenza Schouler quilted bustier dress.

The dress has a quilted silk charmeuse bustier with perfectly complements the voluminous pleated silk faille skirt.

Sanaa Lathan looked radiant wearing a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 hyacinth print chiffon one-shoulder dress.

Jordana Brewster’s Reem Acra Fall 2009 gold leaf jacquard halter dress with black belt, ensure she stood out amongst everyone else who opted for a more summery look.

Garcelle Beauvais opted for a full-length one-shouldered pale pink dress with a coral floral print.

She paired her dress with gold, a tan clutch and coral hooped earrings.

Maggie Grace is always so graceful.

I love her one-shouldered dress with a Dries van Noten Spring 2009-esqe mosaic print.

I’m really not keen on Shenae Grimes’ make-up, but her navy zipper trimmed Isabel Lu dress is cute.

Her look is paired with Miu Miu heels and a Kotour clutch.

Radha Mitchell wore a floaty floral vintage Cardinali dress and vintage KJL bangle from Decades Inc., paired with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

The white sunglasses and wedges add to the summery look she was going for.

Jessica Lucas wore a beautiful emerald one-shouldered Jay Godfrey Resort 2010 dress with a black waistband.

The “Melrose Place” actress accessorized with black pumps, a black clutch and a Swarovski bracelet.

The fashion roller coaster that is Lynn Collins takes another nose dive.

Although I do like the dress and the bright pink lips, the rest of the look feels alien the dress.

The hair is really granny-ifed and the Jeffrey Campbell Potion Ankle Boots – which are very similar to the Opening Ceremony boots – are very rock chick making this look too busy for me.
