Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Tory Burch Rodeo Drive Flagship Opening

Tory Burch hosted a party on Tuesday (January 14) to celebrate her newly opened boutique on Rodeo Drive, which is her first flagship on the West Coast.

Celebrities came to check out the new store – of course, dressed in Tory Burch pieces, mostly from the Spring 2014 collection, which will banish your winter blues.

Kiernan Shipka: The ‘Mad Men’ actress was by far my favourite at this event. She’s only 14, but I’m always inspired by her red carpet looks. On this occasion she donned a pretty floral embroidered Tory Burch Spring 2014 tunic-style top with matching pants styled with a mirrored Tory Burch minaudiere to round out her uber-chic look, which wouldn’t look out of place on the French Riviera.

Hailee Steinfeld: While I love Hailee’s Tory Burch Spring 2014 ‘Emily’ A-line embellished dress, I wish she’d opted to go sans tights, especially considering she styled the look perfectly, giving it an edge with Tory Burch mirrored ‘Sadie’ slingbacks and a ladylike top-handle bag. The beehive ‘do was a great finishing touch to her ’60s-inspired frock.

Jessica Alba: I often see Jessica wearing Tory Burch pieces in her everyday life, so I was not surprised to see her show her support. Keeping the metallic theme going, she wore a striped cropped top from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection styled with a green freckled-print single pleat skirt from the Spring 2014 collection with the celeb-favourite white pumps.

Jaime King In Prabal Gurung - InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Jaime King attended the 2014 InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globe Awards post-party on Sunday (January 12) in Beverly Hills, California.

This frock is the third Prabal Gurung dress we saw on the red carpet last night.

You wern’t too enamoured by Zoe Saldana’s look and were put off by Sandra Bullock’s for the lack of a belt and the slight creases, so how does Jamie’s Spring 2014 offering fare?

The actress worked a white silk-organza off-the-shoulder dress with contrast black tank-style straps embellished with Swarovski crystals, feathered organza, rose-shaped paillettes and hand-smocked chiffon.

Sounds like a lot going on, but the details blend so beautifully together.

Following Kate Bosworth’s black straps/black pumps Dior styling, Jamie opted to style her black-strapped dress with Casadei pumps in the same colour as her dress, adding a black Jimmy Choo clutch and statement earrings into the mix.

A severe tight bun and red lips completed the look.

Jaime King In Jason Wu - 2nd Annual Baby2Baby GalaNew mom Jaime King also stepped out for the 2nd Annual Baby2Baby Gala at The Book Bindery in Culver City, California on Saturday evening.

The ‘Hart of Dixie’ actress, who gave birth to her son just about a month ago, literally sparkled in her enviable post-baby bod, wearing a shimmering, sheer-effect Jason Wu Spring 2014 metallic-laced frock.

She complemented the glamorous bias-cut, slip dress with even more sparkle via an unnecessary choker necklace and a few bangles, along with a spit-slick high ponytail.

But, without throwing on the runway’s trench coat, it’s almost as if she otherwise tried to dial down the dazzle with her more casual shoe selection. Still, the black and cream, ankle- and toe-strap sandals just seemed at odds with the rest of the look.

Motherhood is obviously agreeing with Jaime, as she looks stunning. But the ensemble itself feels a bit overwrought and over-the-top for the occasion.

Too glittery or not?

The CW Network's New York 2013 Upfront Presentation

A bevy of bright young things made quite an entrance at The CW Network’s New York 2013 Upfront Presentation, hosted at The London Hotel yesterday in New York City. Among the hot list, there are starlets from ‘The Carrie Diaries’ to ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and every TV show in between—and they certainly didn’t keep their sartorial sass under lock and key.

Jaime King: The ‘Hart of Dixie’ star flaunted a bold swish of brushstrokes (and her baby bump) in a Peter Pilotto Fall 2013 satin frock, worn with a Rachel Zoe statement cuff and thick strappy Etro shoes. With its abstract expressionist mood, this was nearly like a Mark Rothko painting put onto a dress. Casual blonde waves and a sweep of sky-blue eye liner completed the artistic look.

Aimee Teegarden: The ‘Star-Crossed’ actress must have gotten the art memo, too, as her romper was a study in watercolour prints. The rush of swirling hues was exhilarating; so too was the pop of neon-blue from the pumps and her coral lippie. I just wish her ‘do had carried the same exuberance, as it seemed to fall flat.

Nina Dobrev: Our favourite TV vamp was obviously still channeling a touch of punk attitude from last week’s Met Gala. The newly single star turned up the volume in a blue body-con dress by Versace that featured a punch of black leather, grommets and metal. Shiny platinum Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ heels added a final flourish.

AnnaSophia Robb: The young Carrie Bradshaw gave us a peek (literally) of her big-city style with this Katie Ermilio design that featured no fewer than three of the hottest trends of late: stripes, mismatched patterns and midriff cutouts. With so much happening in her dress, she kept the rest of the styling straightforward with minimal accessories, including a pair of Sorellina butterfly earrings and metallic Casadei pumps. Side-swept pin curls sent this look straight to the ’50s while lavender eye shadow added a youthful, fun edge.

With such a variety of styles, who was your top-dressed starlet of the four?

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.
