I was very excited to attend the 7th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon held at Beverly Hills Hotel today (February 27) in Beverly Hills, California.
British actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw was also in attendance flying the flag for British labels wearing a Vivienne Westwood painterly floral-print satin dress which exudes classical femininity.
Her beautiful belted dress, which featured soft draping at the front, was styled with Kurt Geiger London pink pumps and a colour-popping Rodo yellow clutch.
I love this ladylike choice which with has touch of vintage appeal; perfect for a Hollywood luncheon.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the Vanity Fair and FIAT celebration of ‘Young Hollywood’ held at No Vacancy on Tuesday (February 25) in Los Angeles, California.
Adding a lively hit of spring florals in an Escada Spring 2014 ‘Segunda’ knit dress, Gugu looked undeniably charming.
The black blazer and pointed courts added a formal, sophisticated spin while a sleek clutch added party-worthy polish.
Gugu’s bouncy up-do and soft pink lip and metallic eyes culminated in an amazingly flawless look.
Overall, I think this is a smart and attractive look with a few delightful qualities which really help lift it from ordinary to beautiful. Gugu seems to be going from strength to strength in the wardrobe department and I can’t wait to see what’s next from this rising star. Do you agree?

Gugu Mbatha-Raw may have passed by Olivia Wilde at the Variety Studio, held at Holt Renfrew during the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday.
The actress showed us a design from the Fall 2013 collection of London-based fashion label, Felder Felder.
Shades of plum, oxblood and burgundy all mixed and mingled in this uniquely patterned fit-and-flare dress, which was paired with matching pumps.
Gugu’s light pink lip complemented the look, although the intense coral-orange pout from the runway might have brought the punch and pizzazz I was craving.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw was one of many stars who had a busy weekend at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Fox Searchlight TIFF Party: On Saturday she donned a gold lace Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2013 cap-sleeved frock styled with metallic-copper Jimmy Choo pumps and a gold Rauwolf ‘Constantinople’ clutch.
‘Belle’ Premiere: Her second look, worn on Sunday, is my favourite of the two. She wore a sleek Burberry Prorsum gold-metal-eyelet bodice gown styled with minimal makeup and a Rauwolf emerald-cut gemstone clutch. We’ve seen lace sheath dresses a million times before, but this look is more modern and I adore her simple styling.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw looked stunning on the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event in LA last night.
The “Larry Crowne” British actress took my breath away wearing an electric blue Reem Acra Resort 2012 gown with a twisted bodice and draped skirt.
For a newcomer she certainty has a great sense style and is perfectly poised on the red carpet.
I love how her gold clutch complements the gold details on the sleeves of her gown.
Definitely one to watch in the future.
