L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic Collection Launch Party

L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic Collection Launch Party

To celebrate the launch of its latest collaboration, Banana Republic hosted a star-studded party at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles, California yesterday evening.

The mass retailer teamed up with designer L’Wren Scott on a limited-edition, 50-piece capsule collection. With holiday in mind, the lineup not only reflects Scott’s eye for tailoring and colorful prints, but it also features a bit more seasonally-appropriate sparkle and shine too. Notably, sequin-encrusted cardigans, lace and metallic cocktails dresses, faux-fur accented pieces, and a beaded lipstick-print foldover clutch. This may just be Banana Republic’s most glamorous collaboration yet, and for Scott, it’s her first stint working with a major global retailer.

Jessica Paré: The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic lips-print blouse tucked into a L’Wren Scott garnet red crepe pencil skirt with gold lacquer buttons, which she styled with a matching red sequin cardigan, red lipstick, and a black pumps. The cardigan was a distracting touch, but nonetheless, one that goes away as soon as it’s taken off.

Christina Hendricks: Following Jessica’s lead, the fellow ‘Mad Men’ star also donned the L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic red sequin cardigan over a L’Wren Scott black signature pencil skirt with gold stitching details and one of the collaboration’s peony-printed blouses. She accessorized with yellow metallic pumps, a black Oroton box clutch, and soft rosy makeup.

L’Wren Scott: The designer wore a black velvet and jersey lacquer button skirt with a coordinating black jet-and-thread embroidered cardigan from her main label, but didn’t stop there. To inject a burst of colour and texture, she styled the pieces with a L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic peony-printed chiffon blouse, velvet bow jacket, and royal blue velvet bow heels.

Jessica Paré attended the Pandora Essence Collection North America launch party, held at SkyBar at the Mondrian Los Angeles on Saturday in West Hollywood.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress chose a L’Wren Scott look for the evening’s festivities. From the black, ruffle-front, mock-neck, long-sleeved blouse to shimmery purple and black tuxedo-stripe pencil skirt, to the gladiator strap heels, it was certainly a look with a lot going on.

As for everything else, she styled the outfit with silver leaf earrings, tousled hair, and a less dramatic smoky cat-eye than she usually wears.

Elle 1

Many more fashionable femmes joined the crush of glamour gals at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration, hosted yesterday night at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California.

Melissa McCarthy: One of ELLE’s November cover girls, Melissa took a trendsetting approach in a Calvin Klein ensemble, featuring a black leather-look top and pants and a white bolero jacket, to which she paired a Rauwolf ombre-effect clutch, studded sandals and a few gold cocktail rings. A pompadour-inspired ‘do topped off her edgier entrance.

Emilia Clarke: The ‘Game of Thrones’ starlet was polished in a sheer effect, nude Calvin Klein Spring 2013 frock, cinched in with a black belt. Nude sandals with an embellished metallic heel added an intriguing, style-forward note, while her wispy updo and soft rose-toned makeup were just plain pretty.

Gia Coppola: Also in Calvin Klein, the director-screenwriter skipped a dress in favour of separates including a wrap-front top and cropped black pants, adding some shine via gold sandals and a bit of colour via a berry lip lacquer.

Jessica Pare In Oscar de la Renta – 2013 Emmy Awards

Jessica Pare In Oscar de la Renta - 2013 Emmy Awards

Jessica Pare was also at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards, held this evening at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

After wearing an Oscar de la Renta look at a few pre-Emmy parties, the ‘Mad Men’ actress stuck with the designer and gave us a thrilling glimpse at Oscar’s Spring 2014 collection.

Her turquoise-blue ball-gown featured an exaggerated, sculpted bodice and high-low hemline, which she let take centre stage, only accessorizing with pendant earrings and black Oscar de la Renta ‘Melissa’ sandals.

While Jessica’s pretty pink lippie added a nice contrast, the black shoes wouldn’t have been my first choice, and I would have selected a more dynamic statement earring as seen on the runway.
