Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – 2015 Met Gala

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - 2015 Met Gala

Jennifer Connelly was also in the mix at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

Naturally, she was dressed in a custom Louis Vuitton gown. But, unfortunately, I only had the experience of déjà vu upon seeing this look.

While the architectural detailing and the explosion of lace were striking, this was merely a gown version of the short dresses we’ve previously seen, including a very similar silhouette at the recent Tribeca Film Festival.

The addition of the ear cuff does nothing to elevate the look either. Would you agree?

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ New York Screening

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - 'Avengers Age of Ultron' New York Screening

Jennifer Connelly attended the ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ screening at the SVA Theatre in New York City on Tuesday (April 28).

To no one’s surprise, the actress relied on the same Louis Vuitton style equation in this Fall 2015 black frock that radiated with metallic embroidery.

Like her last LV entrance, this one featured puffed, mutton-inspired statement shoulders and sleeves adding a bit of flair to the standard short-dress silhouette.

Her shoe choice was rather safe, too. Black pumps were the easy answer and certainly fit the bill, but an unexpected contrast would have been welcomed—not that I’m necessarily advocating for the runway’s white pair.

That said, in light of the predictable fashion statement, she wears it with effortless ease and I did appreciate the richness of the multicoloured metallics which are beautifully echoed in her bold berry lip.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘Aloft’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - 'Aloft' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Connelly attended 2015 Tribeca Film Festival New York premiere of ‘Aloft’ at BMCC Tribeca PAC, on Friday (April 24) in New York City.

The actress wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 dress, with a unique silhouette thanks to the pronounced shoulders.

I loved the look on the runway given an edge with the ankle boots, so the Mary Janes worn by Jennifer are a bit of a disconnect.

Perhaps I am just making excuses as my real issue is that Jennifer doesn’t serve up any surprises anymore, as her red carpet looks are so predictable and very formulaic. Same designer, same style, same silhouette….

Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 Front Row

Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 Front Row
The front row of the Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 show certainly faced no shortage of the usual LV-outfitted stars who all made Nicolas Ghesquière’s runway a must-attend during Paris Fashion Week in Paris, France.

Jennifer Connelly: Continuing to show off a new, softer side with her Louis Vuitton looks, the actress wore a feminine, printed velvet frock with a relaxed silhouette, cinched in for shaping by a skinny, brown leather belt. Gilded, gold-embellished shoes injected some of that more familiar edge to this ensemble, and I loved the pop of her berry lip for added oomph.

Fan Bingbing: Going for tough-luxe appeal, the Asian star teamed a gold-lined, black leather moto jacket with a sheer, white sweater and front-slit skirt. A range of accessories completed the look with a bit of ’80s-inspired excess, including statement earrings, round sunnies, rows of rings and a hand bracelet, a signature LV monogram shoulder bag, and platform cutout sandals—with blue nail polish, no less. She nailed an urban, street-style sensibility here.

Selena Gomez
: Playing with patterns, Selena took a sophisticated turn in this mixed print, prairie dress with a black accent belt. She completed the prim frock with a pair of black booties and a couldn’t-miss-it yellow handbag, which I actually loved as the youthful exclamation point to this pretty look.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – UN Women For Peace Association International Women’s Day Celebration

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - UN Women For Peace Association International Women's Day Celebration

Jennifer Connelly attended the UN Women For Peace Association International Women’s Day Celebration held at the UN Delegates Dining Room and Terrace on Friday (March 6) in New York City.

The actress was of course wearing Louis Vuitton, but her Pre-Fall 2015 dress possessed none of the usual edgy traits we expect from Jennifer. There were no signature leather ankle boots (which she has pretty much worn with each of her LV looks), plus the length of her dress was also longer than usual.

Moulded with a fit-and-flare silhouette, this prim and proper piece sees Jennifer turning a new leaf for feminine elegance, which was perfectly appropriate for the event.
