Most Underrated 2013 – Emmy Rossum

Most Underrated 2013 – Emmy Rossum

Emmy Rossum is no shrinking style violet, continually giving us elegantly timeless, yet still trendy ensembles that are always appropriate and that never fail to raise the fashion bar on the red carpet.

Despite her impossibly chic statements, she seems to be missing the fashion cred she’s so certainly owed.

This past year, she has shown off sweet and sophisticated Oscar de la Renta frocks, ritzy-glitzy, embellished numbers from Elie Saab and Naaem Khan, and all-out glamour girl gowns from the likes of Andrew Gn, Carolina Herrera and Zuhair Murad.

She even channelled her version of pretty-punk in her dazzling Donna Karan Atelier design at the 2013 Met Gala.

She may be a quiet fashion victor, never generating the kind of chatter lauded upon the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, but she should with head-turning looks that have perfection written all over them.

Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta – ‘August: Osage County’ LA Screening

Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta -  'August Osage County' LA Screening

Emmy Rossum attended the ‘August: Osage County’ benefit screening held at the Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Thursday evening.

Wrapping her brunette locks into a chic topknot, the ‘Shameless’ actress wore a pretty dress from one of her favourite designers, Oscar de la Renta, selecting a navy silk-faille dress with ivory organza, caviar beads, and threadwork embroidery, in the designer’s favoured fit-and-flare silhouette from the Resort 2014 collection.

With a pop of colour courtesy of her glossy red lip shade, she kept the rest of her look neutral, opting for a diamante-encrusted cream clutch, silver jewels and white Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps.

It does pain me to admit that the white pumps, despite my disdain for them, do complement the look. This showing proves that the trend, as much as we might have hoped otherwise, isn’t going to be dying down any time soon.

Emmy Rossum In Naeem Khan – Saban Community Clinic’s 37th Annual Benefit Gala

Emmy Rossum In Naeem Khan - Saban Community Clinic's 37th Annual Benefit Gala

Emmy Rossum attended the Saban Community Clinic’s 37th annual benefit gala held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening.

We know Emmy so well for her excellent selection of gowns and dresses, but on this rare occasion she wore a black embellished short-sleeved open-back top and pants from Naeem Khan’s Spring 2014 collection, which at first I thought was a jumpsuit.

Going the less is more route, the ‘Shameless’ actress, who was yesterday named as the face of beauty brand Restorsea, styled her look with Chopard white diamond circular drop earrings, black strappy Jimmy Choo sandals, a gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch and black nail polish.

Sweeping her glossy locks to one side, she opted for cat-eyes and a neutral makeup regime including a pink glossy lip.

Do you like this change of pace from Emmy, or do you prefer her more girlie gown looks?

Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta – CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event

Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta - CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Event

Emmy Rossum is always impeccably dressed and that was true once again when she attended the 2013 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event presented by theCorner.com at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California yesterday afternoon.

Her beautiful Oscar de la Renta Resort 2014 black silk-organza and tulle frock with multicoloured threadwork-embroidered flowers was the perfect look for the sunny afternoon occasion.

After opting to go matchy-matchy with her last look, on this occasion she styled her multicoloured frock with a green satin Christian Louboutin clutch and simple black pumps.

Deciding on a dark manicure, her makeup was lighter, with a soft-pink lip colour and natural tresses rounding out her look.

Emmy Rossum In Elie Saab - ELLE's 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Emmy Rossum was the lady in red as she headed to ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

The ‘Shameless’ actress, sporting a high ponytail, sparkled in several ways: firstly, her stunning Elie Saab Resort 2014 halter-neck cocktail dress was embellished with tonal sequins.

Then, she added a selection of silver jewels, and finally of course there’s that beautiful smile which would light up any room.

Is this too matchy for you, or do you like that her lippie, patent-leather Louboutins and satin clutch matched her dress?
