Kate Mara In J. Mendel – Jimmy Choo New Bond Street Townhouse & Vices Launch Party

Kate Mara In J Mendel - Jimmy Choo New Bond Street Townhouse & Vices Launch Party

Kate Mara attended a cocktail reception to celebrate the opening of the Jimmy Choo New Bond Street Townhouse and launch of the VICES collection on Thursday (October 9) in London, England.

The actress wore her favourite designer, selecting a lime textured cotton and leather collage bustier dress from J. Mendel’s Spring 2015 collection, which she styled with metallic-pewter accessories from Jimmy Choo including the ‘Anouk’ pumps and ‘Cloud’ clutch.

The look creates a strong impact, reenergising and reinvigorating her style which at times tends to be quite beige. This look makes me stand up and take notice.

‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7 – #8′ Venice Film Festival Premiere

'Miu Miu Women's Tales #7 - #8' - Premiere - 71st Venice Film Festival

A collection of six starlets were at the ‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7-#8’ premiere, held during the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Thursday (August 28). Naturally, all were representing the label, donning a range of Miu Miu looks that couldn’t have each been more different if they tried.

Dakota Fanning: The trendsetting starlet wore a Miu Miu creamy white satin sheath dress with beaded embellishment, paired with nude platform Miu Miu pumps and a bejeweled grass-green Miu Miu clutch. I would have loved to see the same punch of colour in her shoe, along with an updo.

Kirsten Dunst: The actress went for a retro spin in an A-line Miu Miu dress featuring a funky blue and white swirl print. She accessorized with pops of silver via her clutch and sandals, not to mention the flash of those side-swept platinum locks.

Kate Mara: Donning the same nude platforms as Dakota, Kate wore hers with a nude Miu Miu dress with allover paillettes and a sparkling, decorative neckline. The design was pretty and carried with it a vintage flair, but the colour washed out her complexion, especially with her neutral makeup.

Felicity Jones: Her embellished, midnight-blue Miu Miu dress with sheer sleeves had the fall season written all over it. Black pointy pumps did nothing to lighten the look, but the actress did take a more summery, breezy approach to her barely-there makeup.

Lena Dunham: Once again opting for a head-scratcher of a look, the ‘Girls’ star didn’t exactly stand out for the right reasons in her sombre, daresay frumpy, patterned frock. The Prada dress and the flat, block-heel sandals aged her far beyond my liking—as did her beehive ’do.

Nicoletta Romanoff: The only one to really embrace what’s left of summer, Nicoletta was the most polished of the bunch in her flirty and youthful white ruffle blouse and lemon-yellow skirt by Miu Miu, paired with breezy waves and sun-kissed makeup. If I were to nitpick, I would have selected a colourful, fun sandal not this chunkier brown pair.

Kate Mara In J. Mendel – 2014 Emmy Awards

KateMaraInJMendel2014EmmyAwards

Kate Mara had some fashion fun on the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘House of Cards’ star wore a stunning layered and pleated J. Mendel gown from the designer’s Fall 2014 collection.

Kate is never one to shy away from something different fashion-wise, and while that doesn’t always work for her, this gown is divine.

I love all the different length layers, the peeks of skin and of course the dramatic beaded floral accents on the décolletage. Such a dream of a dress.

Black and white Charlotte Olympia ‘Pomeline’ platforms and a black and white Thalé Blanc’s ‘Gisele Deux’ clutch are the perfect accessories, and a black mani and dark smokey eyes give it that edgy flare Kate does so well.

Prior to the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, Kate Mara attended the Television Academy’s celebration of the 66th Emmy Awards nominees for Outstanding Casting at Tanzy on Thursday (August 14) in Los Angeles, California.

Working a semi-casual look with an edge, the actress wore all-black, donning a Givenchy jacket with studded detailing and an asymmetrical zipper paired with Paige Denim jeans and a simple black top and Louboutin slingbacks.

With a no-fuss hairstyle, she completed her look with heavy kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude lip.

Kate Mara In Christian Dior – 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Kate Mara In Christian Dior - 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Kate Mara couldn’t be missed as she made a bright showing at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, held on Saturday (August 16) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Her embroidered yellow wool and pale-pink quilted crepe dress from the Christian Dior Fall 2014 collection was certainly a bold colour choice, made all the more intense with the sun’s rays on the red carpet.

The cold-shoulder frock lost some of its runway sensibility, as a pucker here and a crumple there marred some its streamlined appeal—not that I can call this particular Dior dress one of my collection highlights.

Dior metallic and nude sandals, alongside an embellished hair clip at the back of her sleek bob, completed Kate’s entrance.
