Hayden Panettiere In Halston Heritage – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Hayden Panettiere In Halston Heritage - 2013 Billboard Music Awards
Hayden Panettiere hit a sophisticated note at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, hosted on Sunday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

As a presenter, the ‘Nashville’ star took a refined approach to the evening’s daring dress code in a Halston Heritage Spring 2013 black halter gown.

The backless design featured tiered layers at the bodice, which the actress delicately accented with minimal David Yurman jewels and a reflective gold cylinder Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch that I loved.

The finishing touches came with side-swept old-Hollywood waves, barely-detectable makeup and a glossed lippie.

Even though Hayden didn’t startle us with all-out flash, her subtle-chic look was hardly a snooze fest.

Boring or beautiful?

JW Anderson for Versus by Versace Collection Launch Party

JW Anderson for Versus by Versace Collection Launch Party

Donatella Versace hosted an event at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City on Wednesday evening to celebrate the launch of the JW Anderson for Versus by Versace collection.

Heidi Klum: The ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge wore a lace-accented LBD from the Versace Spring 2013 collection with black pumps. My issue is not the revealing nature of her dress or her pumps, but her ghostly makeup.

Taylor Momsen: Perhaps Heidi was taking makeup tips from Taylor Momsen, who took to the red carpet sporting a paler complexion than usual with her trademark racoon eyes. I haven’t been a fan of Taylor’s style since she morphed into her ‘Gossip Girl’ character Jenny, but I have to say I love this harlequin Versace suit. Sometimes she takes the grunge too far, but this more polished look I can get on board with.

Hayden Panettiere: With most going for all-black, hard-edged looks, Hayden opted for a beige-coloured flirty frock from the Versace Spring 2013 collection, which she styled with nude pumps and a clutch which matched her dress.

Hayden Panettiere In Katharine Kidd – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Hayden Panettiere In Katherine Kidd - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association

Hayden Panettiere attended the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C., which is affectionately known as the ‘nerd prom’ for journalists.

The ‘Nashville’ starlet certainly put on her prom-queen best last night.

She attempted to defy gravity in her pale-yellow gown from Katharine Kidd’s Spring 2012 collection. The sideless and strapless effect was accomplished with illusion mesh panels.

But the Swarovski crystal beaded-thread strands and the draped-curtain sides, hanging on to this silk tulle pageant-princess dress, were just begging to be pulled off.

I thought the braided updo trend had run its course, but Hayden brought Heidi back to the dinner.

Bohemian gemstone earrings, an Ashlyn’d clutch and a pert red lip polished off this schizophrenic look that read to costume-y for this event.

Get The Look: Hayden Panettiere’s Golden Globes Glow

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsHayden Panettiere is having a moment. Nominated for her first Golden Globe award this year for her portrayal of petulant country songstress Juliette Barnes in the hit ABC show Nashville, the petite actress has also been rocking the red carpet recently.

Although she hails from just outside New York City, Neutrogena cover girl Hayden always looks the epitome of a California girl with her blonde locks and glowing skin – even in the depths of winter. Make-up artist Amy Oresman, whose other high profile clients include Kate Bosworth, Rachel Bilson and Zoe Saldana, talked to us about how she achieved Hayden’s look for the awards ceremony.

‘Hayden’s Golden Globe make up look was clean and contemporary as we wanted effortless makeup to pair with her sea shell pink Cavalli gown.’

‘First we prepped Hayden’s skin with Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Primer mixed with a pea size amount of Healthy Defense Moisturizer. This keeps skin smooth and shine at bay all day and night. Next we used Shine Control Makeup in Fresh Beige as both a foundation and concealer. This is a great build-able foundation that looks so natural and has rice protein that absorbs oil so you always look great in photos.’

‘On her cheeks we used the Sheer Highlight Blush palette in Pure from Neutrogena and I also used this as a night light under her brows and bridge of her nose. Hayden’s eyes had a fifties flair but I used silver and taupe cream to create a blue slate shadow so it felt current and feminine. I did this by mixing two Crease Proof eye shadow colors, Forever Platinum and Lasting Taupe, together for a base on her lids. These shadows go on creamy so they are easy to blend, but they dry to a powder finish and really stay put.’

‘I kept the bottom of Hayden’s lash line clean leaving all color on the top – this gives a really fresh feel. I lined Hayden’s eye with her favorite black liner Cosmic Black by Neutrogena, coated her lashes with Healthy Volume Mascara and curled then with a Shu Uemura lash curler. I then added a few individual lashes to the corner of her eyes.’

‘We shaped her brows with Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Ash Blond and also used her brow gel to keep them in place.’

‘Finally, we paired a plum stained lip with her sultry eyes. Hayden loves Perfect Plum Moisture Smooth Color Stick –  it is her absolute favorite – it’s like a Sharpie pen of color and moisture for your lips!’

Hayden Panettiere In Roberto Cavalli – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Hayden Panettiere In Roberto Cavalli 2013 Golden Globes

Hayden Panettiere looked gorgeous at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California this evening.

The nominated ‘Nashville’ actress wore a blush pink Roberto Cavalli gown with intricate ruched detailing and an understated mermaid fit.

I love how the au naturel look of sleek, extension-less hair and barely-there makeup gives an air of effortless-ness to the entire look.

Forevermark diamonds and a bubble gum pink clutch complete the look.

Hayden Panettiere In Roberto Cavalli – 2012 CMT Artists Of The Year

Hayden Panettiere attended the 2012 CMT Artists Of The Year at The Factory in Franklin, Tennessee yesterday evening.

The ‘Nashville’ actress, who served as host for this event, opted for a bright fuchsia-pink asymmetrical Roberto Cavalli gown with a slashed opening on the bodice and a thigh-high slit.

Bright colours were clearly the order of the day, as she teamed her gown with red Giuseppe Zanotti satin peep-toes and turquoise Sutra jewellery.

I’m sad to say I don’t like anything about this look as it feels so dated.

I can see that she was going for the glamorous host look, but ended up looking like a Miss World contestant.

I prefer Hayden with shorter hair and a shorter hemline.
