Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Burberry Fall 2013 Front Row

As is customary, quite the coterie of starlets stylishly resided on Burberry Prorsum’s front row to see just what Christopher Bailey had in store for Fall 2013; a collection he titled “Trench Kisses, A Collection of Classics and Christine Keeler.” While it was hard to compete with the designer’s gorgeous runway heroines, many of these cool-girl guests rocked their Burberry best at London’s Kensington Gardens on Monday afternoon and gave the models a good run.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The British model and actress broke out a sleek coral-red pantsuit for her front-row seat at the show. Was it mannish? Yes. But with the slim fit and the impeccable tailoring, no to mention Rosie’s voluminous waves, she looked like she just stepped off the runway herself.

Freida Pinto: Opting for a cooler palette of jewel tones, the actress wore a dark sapphire corset and emerald green trouser from Burberry Prorsum’s colour-saturated Spring 2013 collection. Instead of the cropped biker jacket originally featured on the catwalk, Freida added a black sash detail to the peplum waist of the top. Without any accessories on this look, I would have at least liked to see the added zest of the runway’s golden yellow shoe. But she played off the black with her peep-toe wedge.

Rita Ora: We can always count on this British songstress to pump up the volume with her chameleon-like style. Here, she also went for a menswear-inspired statement with a navy suit that kept an edge with its ’80s slouch and rolled-up sleeves, paired back to stacks of colourful bangles, a “foxy” chain necklace and a T-shirt that playfully illustrated Rita’s new British BFF and model of the moment, “Queen” Cara Delevingne. The white version of those peep-toe wedges also made an appearance, as did a modernized bouffant-style ‘do.

Kate Beckinsale In Gucci - Warner Bros and InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party

Skipping out on the main event, Kate Beckinsale was spotted on the red carpet for the Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party held in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday evening.

I wasn’t surprised to see her wearing this pale-pink Gucci Spring 2013 strapless column gown with a delicate ruffle, as this look is very much her M.O.: pink and girlie.

Accessorizing with gold trinkets, Kate applied a pretty pink lip colour, with her ombre tresses teased into a side-swept bun.

Alberta Ferretti Lisa Love

The Alberta Ferretti and Vogue Limited Edition Collection 2013 show and dinner hosted at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California was what fashion dreams are made of. The chichi event brought out a crush of starlets, and we cannot help but be in love with their kaleidoscope of looks—at least most of them.

Kate Beckinsale: The stunning actress posed in a staggering twist on an LBD from Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012. The sexy and structured corset top matched with a solid black skirt, instead of the printed runway version, was the epitome of edgy glamour. So, too, were Kate’s Edie Parker clutch and State Room wavy feather diamond-encrusted earrings. Her Casadei black patent T-strap pumps with the signature ‘Blade’ heel were far better than the plain catwalk pump, too.

Selena Gomez: The newly single entertainer showed off her sultry appeal in a plunging blue cocktail frock plucked from the Alberta Ferretti Spring 2013 catwalk. She paired it with studded Giuseppe Zanotti nude heels and Melinda Maria jewels. The deep teal-blue shade with its wispy overlay looked all the more sophisticated with Selena’s searing red lip and slicked back updo.

Anna Kendrick: While the color of this starlet’s sheer, light emerald dress was completely on trend, unfortunately this look didn’t translate nearly as dynamically off the Alberta Ferretti Spring 2013 runway. The dress’s lining was too distracting, and Anna’s clunky Sergio Rossi bronze platforms were a horror, weighing down what should have been a diaphanous look.

Kate Beckinsale blended into the background in blue at an event celebrating the 40th anniversary of Porche design in LA on Tuesday.

The British actress looked beautiful in a sequined Vivienne Westwood dress, though I’m fairly sure she chose it to stand out from the fashionable crowd, not to match the interior.

Nevertheless, the dress, with its quintessentially Westwood neckline and gathering at the waist, suited Kate perfectly – adding volume where needed and skimming her figure to highlight her svelte frame.

The white bag and matching Christian Louboutin mesh pumps added unexpected and refreshing tones to the ensemble.

British beauty Kate Beckinsale has been consistently wowing us on the red carpet with her flawless skin and fabulous hair.

Tinseltown colourist Tracey Cunningham, who is also responsible for co-star Jessica Biel’s pretty ombre locks, created Kate’s new look for the ‘Total Recall’ promo tour.

Tracey said: “Kate is the classic brunette beauty. I love the golden chestnut brown we created for her. We rarely do highlights but I went for it this time. The result? Perfection.”

Meanwhile, stylist Mara Roszak created a range of looks for Kate throughout the ‘Total Recall’ press junket from undone updos to glamorous retro waves. Mara gave us the scoop on her ‘must-have’ products to create any style.

Greyl Voluforme Hairspray – It’s a great lightweight hairspray that can be brushed through and moulded, yet still gives the hair a great hold.

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray – A “texturizer” for the hair. It makes the hair feel like you’ve spent a day at the beach.

Batiste Dry Shampoo – It’s not only great for second-day hair, but also for styling! It gives the hair a great voluminous fluffy texture, perfect for updos.

Phyto Phytovolume Spray – A must-have for blow-drying hair. Everyone benefits from a little lift at the roots, and that’s exactly what this product does without weighing the hair down.

Greyl Eclat Natural – It’s the perfect lightweight cream to use on dry hair, to break up the style and calm frizz.
