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.

Kate Mara In Givenchy – The 66th Emmy Awards Outstanding Casting Nominees

Kate Mara In Givenchy - The 66th Emmy Awards Outstanding Casting Nominees

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.

Who Wore H&M Conscious Collection Better…Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden or Kate Mara?

Who Wore H&M Conscious Collection Better Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden or Kate Mara

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Kate Mara wore this same H&M Conscious Collection top on the same day.

Princess Victoria wore hers to a dinner party in Tanzania, styling her look with a shimmering gold pencil skirt, gold ballet flats and a gold clutch, while Kate took inspiration from the look book, pairing her top with Matador-esque embroidered pants with lace details.

Even though I wish she’d worn heels, I still love Princess Victoria’s look, preferring both the skirt and accessories.

Kate Mara In Sandro – 2014 Summer Party presented by Coach and Friends Of The Highline

Kate Mara In Sandro - 2014 Summer Party presented by Coach and Friends Of The Highline

Kate Mara attended the 2014 Summer Party presented by Coach and Friends Of The Highline held at The Highline on Tuesday (June 17) in New York City.

The actress, who didn’t fare too well with her heavy Dolce & Gabbana dress last time out, was much improved on this occasion.

The ‘House of Cards’ actress wore a Sandro look that featured an oversized sunshine-yellow wide-sleeved top with a contrasting pair of shorts with a cute ruffled detail in a maroon fall-like hue.

While the tan snake-skin platform heels work perfectly with the look, I am deeply questioning the pale blue Coach ‘Rhyder’ bag, only because colourwise it doesn’t coordinate well with the look, throwing off the late Indian summer vibe she was channelling here.
