The Paley Center For Media Presents: ‘Mad Men’ Season 5

The Paley Center For Media Presents 'Mad Men' Season 5

The ladies from ‘Mad Men’ were back on the red carpet again last night for The Paley Center for Media’s presentation of ‘Mad Men’ Season 5, held at The Paley Center for Media in New York City yesterday evening, with two of the three making an effort to get dressed up for the occasion.

Jessica Pare: As with the last event, the Canadian actress stood out wearing another fitted dress, this time selecting a Roksanda Ilincic ‘Efra’ dress from the Spring 2013 collection with striking colour panelling, which she styled with Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ pumps.

Kiernan Shipka: Opting for another dark-coloured frock, the young actress chose a fit-and-flare black dress with rich red floral embroidery. Satin pumps and a braided ‘do completed her look. Beautiful, elegant and age appropriate as always.

January Jones: Opting for a more laidback look, the actress wore a Textile by Elizabeth and James denim jacket over an embroidered Zara cream blouse, paired with Helmut Lang leather pants and Christian Louboutin ‘Diptic’ open-toe ankle boots which we’ve seen before on Jennifer Hudson and Eva Longoria. Do you think she is under dressed or that the others are over dressed?

BAFTA New York Celebrates ‘Mad Men’

BAFTA New York Celebrates ‘Mad Men

BAFTA New York celebrated the leading lovelies, (and the dapper guys, too), of AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ on Monday at The Harvard Club in New York City. I wanted to be ‘mad’ about the ladies’ looks, but I was left feeling a bit underwhelmed by a few of them.

Jessica Paré:  The Canadian stunner wore a jade-green dress, gilded in gold bric-a-brac at the neck and sleeves, from L’Wren Scott’s Fall 2013 collection. The slimline dress showed off her figure, but I couldn’t take my eyes off the distracting black Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps. They weren’t right for this look, as I much preferred the metallic gold shoes that took to the runway.

January Jones: With her black leather Versace motorcycle jacket and printed Parker mini-skirt, the actress mixed punk and playful styles. Black Miu Miu platform pumps and a tousled bob finished this sporty moment that was certainly worlds away from her classic-glam ‘Mad Men’ character.

Christina Hendricks: The flame-haired star covered up her curves in a long-sleeve, knee-length black Valentino dress. While it did have some silhouette-enhancing trim at the waist and bodice, these details all but disappeared into the blackness. The spark was further extinguished with tired Stuart Weitzman black shoes—a more inspired pair would have worked wonders. At least Christina’s bold red lip provided some much-needed drama.

Kiernan Shipka: The young starlet stood out here with her adorable Dolce & Gabbana bow-accented frock that managed to look simultaneously sophisticated and age-appropriate. She also gets points for her retro side-swept wave and her decision to opt out of black pumps, choosing instead a mesh pair.

Jessica Pare In Prabal Gurung – ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Premiere

Jessica Paré In Prabal Gurung - ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Premiere

Jessica Pare hit the red carpet at the DGA Theater in LA last night for the ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 premiere with co-stars January Jones and Christina Hendricks.

She opted for a burst of colour, wearing a head-to-toe look from the Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Her bright-pink-and-turquoise three-quarter-sleeve lily-print satin sheath was styled with a black leather belt with neon-pink piping and Prabal Gurung for Casadei black mesh ankle-strap pumps with a white toecap.

The dress is perfect for her lean figure. I had pictured Allison Williams in this dress.

The only issue with this look is the severe centre-parted ponytail. But judging from her jewels and smoky eyes, I guess the styling was purposely edgy.

Would you have preferred it had her styling been softer, or does the styling perfectly fit the designer’s sexy, fashion-forward aesthetic?

2013 AFI Awards Red Carpet Round Up

2013 AFI Awards

Here are the rest of the attendees who took to the red carpet on Friday afternoon at the Four Seasons Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California for the 2013 AFI Awards.

Kiernan Shipka: Why Elle Fanning won Best Dressed Teen 2012 over Kiernan I will never quite understand, as the ‘Mad Man’ actress’ style prowess and infinitely better shoe closet leaves Fanning in the shade for me. On this occasion she wore an uber cute yellow Valentino frock with satin black trims paired with simple black Rupert Sanderson ankle-strap sandals. Light makeup and a simple bun complete her fresh, youthful look.

Lena Dunham: There was much debate over Lena’s previous look with some saying that she’s “just-not-that-into-fashion” and others arguing that she needs to play that game. Well it looked like she upped her game at this event wearing a figure flattering Zac Posen grape cape-sleeve dress with a flared skirt. Silver glitter Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ flats and a berry lip colour to complement her dress completed her look.

Sally Field: The actress selected a grey-and-white Stella McCartney short sleeve dress with a white lace overlay which we’ve also seen on Michelle Dockery. Grey pearls and grey pumps perfect her day time chic look.

Chanel’s Fine Jewelry 80th Anniversary Celebration

Here are six more looks from the celebration of Chanel Fine Jewelry’s 80th anniversary of the ‘Bijoux De Diamants’ collection, created by Gabrielle Chanel, in New York City yesterday evening.

January Jones: After knocking it out of the fashion ballpark at the Emmys, I’m deeply disappointed by January on this occasion. Between the ghostly makeup, low bandeau and the off-white maxi skirt, the best way to sum up this Chanel Fall 2008 Couture look would be “a hot mess”.

Leigh Lezark: It was left to the DJ and FROWer to bring some glamour to proceedings. Leigh looked stunning wearing a black net Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 gown with PVC embroidery which was styled with a matching bolero with a high neckline. A Perspex clutch, a simple updo and barely there makeup save for kohl-rimmed eyes completed her look.

Giovanna Battaglia: The editor gives me a dilemma. Do I look at the shoes or her Chanel Resort 2013 dress first? Because both are screaming for my attention.

Jessica Pare In Jason Wu – 2012 Emmy Awards

Jessica Pare channelled her inner Grace Kelly as she took to the red carpet this evening for the 2012 Emmy Awards in LA.

As we discovered this week, Jessica loves Jason Wu and the love appears to be mutual, as the designer created this lovely white Grecian gown for the ‘Mad Men’ actress especially for this occasion.

The one-shoulder look was accented with a black waistband and complemented with a black clutch.

An emerald ring, silver Bulgari earrings, a retro updo and that striking red lip colour completed this fabulous look.
