Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab hosted an event in LA on Thursday (November 13), finally getting a chance to meet all those ladies who he helps secure best-dressed status whenever they wear his gowns.

Ashley Madekwe: The gorgeous actress was by far my favourite at this event, wearing a teal look from the Spring 2015 collection styled with a cream Elie Saab clutch. It’s a typically chic offering, easy, effortless, tailored to perfection, with plenty of feminine appeal. I’m crushing on her new bangs too. This is a BDOTW contender if ever I saw one.

Lily Collins: The lady of the hour must have been Lily Collins, who had a breathtaking turn on the red carpet a few weeks ago wearing an Elie Saab ombre Couture gown which I’m pretty confident will be top of many BDOTY lists. Going for something less dramatic on this occasion, the actress wore an uber-chic short jumpsuit from the Spring 2015 collection spliced with a lace sleeve and ruffled detail, which she styled with a black Elie Saab bag and Louboutins. No Lily Collins look would be complete without a bold lip.

Hailee Steinfeld In Monique Lhuillier – ‘The Homesman’ AFI FEST 2014 Premiere

Hailee Steinfeld In Monique Lhuillier -  'The Homesman' AFI FEST 2014 Premiere

Hailee Steinfeld attended the AFI FEST 2014 ‘The Homesman’ premiere held at the Dolby Theatre on Tuesday (November 11) in Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 frock.

Following a few dresses by the red carpet designer which have failed to ignite my senses, this strapless purple dress with a tea-length brocade floral full skirt is a delight to behold, in both colour and design.

Especially when styled so effortlessly with nude sandals and stormy eye makeup in a shade of purple to complement the dress.

Hailee’s style has always been very consistent, full of girlish charm yet maintaining a high level of sophistication, and this look is the perfect embodiment of that fact.

Topshop Topman New York City Flagship Opening Dinner Party

Topshop Topman New York City Flagship Opening Dinner

Topshop and Topman hosted a dinner party to celebrate their new New York City 5th Avenue flagship store held at Grand Central Terminal on Tuesday (November 4) in New York City, inviting a host of celebs with the glaring omission of Ashley Madekwe and Demi Lovato.

Beyonce Knowles: Following the announcement of a Beyonce/Topshop 50-50 partnership to create a sportswear brand, the singer was no doubt top of the invite list. Giving her new shorter hairstyle a red carpet debut, the singer wore a Topshop flocked sequin bodycon dress which hugged her bootylicious bod. The dress may have been high street, but the jewels were high end courtesy of Lorraine Schwartz.

Ciara: As you know, the decline in Ciara’s style has been a bitter pill to swallow; however, on this occasion I am buying what she’s selling. This rugged laidback b-girl style consisting of a simple black top and Topshop leather look dungrees sees her back on track. Laden with a selection of rings, leather buckled boots and smoky eyes, lets pray it’s onwards and upwards from here on out.

Cara Delevingne: It may be black again, but it’s yet another super hot look for the model. Putting the L in LBD, this Topshop Exclusive mini packs a mighty punch with its halter neckline and gold detailing down the sides.

Michael Kors Celebrates The Launch Of Claiborne Swanson Frank’s ‘Young Hollywood’ Portrait Book

Michael Kors Claiborne Swanson Frank's 'Young Hollywood'

The Michael Kors launch of Claiborne Swanson Frank’s ‘Young Hollywood’ portrait book took place on Thursday (October 2) in Beverly Hills, California.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young star, who was just in Paris for the Miu Miu Spring 2015 show, wore a pretty white lace Michael Kors Resort 2015 dress. I love the tan-coloured accessories, which complemented the lining of her sheer dress, and the contrasting fuchsia lip adding a punchy flourish to her look.

Emmy Rossum: Giving us a sultry vixen look, the ‘Shameless’ actress ensured that all eyes were on her wearing a Michael Kors Resort 2015 plunging chiffon frock with a tiered ruffle skirt. Vamping up the look with kohl-rimmed eyes, a purple MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Elsie’ clutch added a pop of colour, with her embellished Louboutins adding a touch of sparkle.

Julianne Hough: I keep going back and forth with Julianne’s look. On the one hand I love her Michael Kors Resort 2015 printed cropped suit, but both the matching clutch and brooch detail feel like overkill. I am grateful she didn’t go one step further and wear the matching printed pumps.

Miu Miu Spring 2015 Front Row

Miu Miu Spring 2015 Front Row

Miuccia Prada presented her Miu Miu Spring 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday (October 1) to a host of gorgeous starlets perched in the front row.

Shailene Woodley: Easily my favourite of the pack, the ‘Divergent’ star looked divine wearing a Miu Miu nude and blush colour-blocked deep V-neck dress accented by contrasting crochet seams, complemented with a gorgeous pair of lilac patent-leather pumps. Miu Miu often churn out sugary dresses, so I’m delighted to see Shailene in this more grown-up option – and did I mention how much I am in love with those shoes?

Léa Seydoux: The French beauty, who is officially/unofficially the face of Prada and Miu Miu, was of course front and centre at this show, wearing an alluring Miu Miu black crêpe and chiffon long-sleeved dress with a lace-panelled bodice. That lip is everything. I love the old Hollywood vibe she’s giving off here.

Hailee Steinfeld: The actress was the perfect embodiment of the Miu Miu brand, looking extra cute wearing a blush-pink Miu Miu dress featuring a contrast white trim and dainty jewelled collar. I can’t get enough of the pearl and crystal bow headband and the python Miu Miu clutch for an interesting contrast. Pink satin platform sandals finished her adorable look.

Hailee Steinfeld In Mary Katrantzou – 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Hailee Steinfeld In Mary Katrantzou - 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Hailee Steinfeld attended the 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party on Friday (September 26) in Los Angeles, California.

The young starlet took a spin in a Mary Katrantzou Fall 2014 midnight-blue dress with crystal and beaded embellishment, which she paired with Bionda Castana ‘Karlie’ black booties.

Devoid of the designer’s more recognizable, dynamic digital prints, the frock did have some fun with its robotic-like figures at the neckline and the voluminous, pleated party skirt.

Never afraid to flaunt quirkier fashion selections, Hailee instead veered in a more girly direction, embracing the youthful and fun spirit of the frock with her long waves.

While the more mannish footwear may have been worn in an effort to tame the sugary silhouette, they were a rather heavy, blocky finish.
