Children’s Defense Fund’s 23rd Annual Beat The Odds Awards

Children's Defense Fund's 23rd Annual Beat The Odds Awards

Celebrities showed their support of the Children’s Defense Fund’s 23rd Annual Beat The Odds Awards held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California on Thursday evening.

Reese Witherspoon: The actress, who was sporting a shorter hairstyle, wore a blue Michael Kors camouflage-jacquard sheath dress with black panels, which she styled with Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps with a gold ankle strap. You may remember that Sigourney Weaver wore this same dress last month.

Katie Lowes: Keeping up the sleeveless-dress–black-pump trend at this event, the ‘Scandal’ actress donned a Rachel Roy printed dress with body-contouring black panels, which she styled with a Paula Cademartori ‘Kate’ black leather bag with gold hardware.

Jennifer Garner: The actress hasn’t worn anything exciting, note-worthy or memorable lately, and this black Valentino dress with a white lace overlay keeps that track record going.

They are all dressed event appropriately, with Reese the standout here for me.

Governors Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

Governors Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

Joining Lupita Nyong’o and Angelina Jolie on the red carpet, these stars also brought their own brand of glamour to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards, held at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center in LA on Saturday evening.

Jennifer Garner: The actress chose a black, multi-strap Dolce & Gabbana frock, which she styled with Neil Lane jewels, a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, and black Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps. Natural makeup and swept-back hair complemented her more casual approach to cocktail dressing.

Octavia Spencer: In true Octavia fashion, the star wore her beloved Tadashi Shoji, selecting a red satin dress detailed with black lace at the shoulders and neckline and a sweet black bow belt at the waist. She accessorized with a medley of simple black accessories — a wrap, Rauwolf clutch, and heels, to be exact — and partnered the look with soft waves.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: The ‘Veep’ star stepped out in a sleeveless, floor-length David Meister gown with a subtle front slit and metallic-covered keyhole. Sleek black Casadei sandals, a black Roger Vivier clutch, and shiny, straight locks completed the look.

Jennifer Garner In Max Mara – Marvelous Max Mara Tokyo 2013

Jennifer Garner In Max Mara - Marvelous Max Mara Tokyo 2013Jennifer Garner attended the Marvelous Max Mara Tokyo 2013 photo call yesterday at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Japan.

As the current face of Max Mara, the actress naturally wore the label, elegantly donning a streamlined, all-white sleeveless crepe column gown with a refined side ruffle and slit detail.

She paired the pristine dress with a Max Mara black suede clutch with gold piping and black Christian Louboutin ‘Palais Royal’ peep-toe heels, which made for a fitting touch to this monochromatic statement.

Her styling is really what sold the look for me. The black accessories, while dramatic, don’t overpower the gown. She has just the right amount of sparkle on her wrists, and her loosened updo, light smokey eye and nude lip are each sophisticatedly soft and appropriate.

Jennifer Garner In Vionnet – ‘Dallas Buyers Club’LA Premiere

Jennifer Garner In Vionnet - 'Dallas Buyers Club'LA Premiere

Jennifer Garner attended the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ premiere held at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

The actress wore a Vionnet Spring 2014 navy crepe sleeveless drape gown with a cut-out detail on the shoulder with Burak Uyan heels.

Jennifer is a busy mum often seen in jeans and checked shirts, but when it comes to the red carpet she usually dials up the glamour.

While she did just that on this occasion, I still feel totally underwhelmed by this look.

Jennifer Garner In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Garner In Dolce & Gabbana - 'Dallas Buyers Club' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Garner hit the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of her film ‘Dallas Buyers Club’.

The star wore a sweet little Dolce & Gabbana dress paired with Brian Atwood pumps and a Max Mara Clutch.

At first I wasn’t wowed by this look, but after a second look, now I’m sold.

Jennifer is never one to get too adventurous on the red carpet, and this dress is lovely and demure. The red lace overlay adds just the right amount of pop to her ensemble.

A low chignon and subtle makeup complete the look.

Max Mara Celebrates Jennifer Garner

Max Max Celebrates Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner was officially unveiled as Max Mara’s first celebrity spokesperson at a party held at Bill’s Food & Drink in New York City last night.

Jennifer Garner: The lady of the hour opted for a Max Mara black satin strapless cocktail dress styled with a black satin gold trim, Max Mara envelope clutch, Pomellato jewels and black sandals with a gold ankle strap. Adding a waist-defining belt would’ve perfected this look for me.

Solange Knowles: When it comes to Solange Knowles, I don’t need to make any suggestions to perfect her look, because it is already there. The print-loving singer opted for a simple Sportmax silk jersey sheath dress in her favourite hue, yellow, with on-trend white pumps, white nails and a hot-pink lip colour.

Molly Sims: The model/actress also opted for a Sportmax dress. Her summery pink-and-white striped look with a draped detail across the shoulders could’ve benefited from better styling. The nude Louboutins work, but I am not a fan of the brown Max Mara ‘Hollywood II’ clutch with this look.

Jennifer Garner In Gucci – 2013 Oscars

oscars-jennifer-garner

Jennifer Garner stood out from the sea of muted dresses on the red carpet Sunday at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ actress wore a custom Gucci gown that looked stunning against her ivory skin.

The actress carried a Roger Vivier clutch and wore Neil Lane jewelry and in a year when most of the stars on the red carpet are taking a simplistic approach to their styling, her $2.5 million worth of jewels and dramatic ruffles evoke the spirit of years past when opulence was more du jour.

I love Jennifer’s brown smokey eyes and slightly messy updo, but her matte nude lips are just begging for at least a little shine.

Jennifer Garner in Roland Mouret – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Jennifer Garner in Roland Mouret

Jennifer Garner managed to look incredibly chic and not at all bothered by the rain and the chill, as she flashed a big smile at the 2013 EE British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards hosted on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

Once again walking the red carpet in support of her nominated husband, ‘Argo’ star Ben Affleck, the actress captured her fair share of the limelight in a supremely sophisticated Roland Mouret Spring 2013 outing.

The chic graphic and architectural silhouette of this dress was highlighted with its waist-cinching sash detail and strong peplum, sculpted to Jennifer’s enviable figure.

The ensemble was manipulated from its runway debut to make it more appropriate for the red carpet with the exchange of a long black skirt for the shorter green version.

In addition to a Roger Vivier black clutch, the other finishing touches to this glamour-girl look came in the form of a simple updo and well-placed diamond jewelry.
