Kate Mara In Valentino Couture – 2014 Met Gala

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

Kate Mara makes a bold choice on the red carpet of the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The actress wore a uniquely printed Valentino Couture Spring 2014 gown with a sheer neckline and sleeves.

I am drawn in by this ensemble, but at closer look I can’t say that I love it. I always appreciate a risk, but this one doesn’t quite do it for me. The silhouette of the dress is stunning, but the combination of texture, pattern and color prevent me from embracing it.

There is no doubt that the gown is a work of art. The detail is breathtaking and the cape on the back is a very cool addition.

Although I don’t love the color, I do like how Mara’s tousled platinum blonde waves and shimmery makeup look with it. I wish I wasn’t so torn about this look. How do you feel about it?

Never one to make too much fuss in the styling department, she added Jimmy Choo sandals with an equal amount of sparkle, opting to wear her ombre tresses up in a simple updo.

Flawless makeup rounded out her look.

Kate Mara In Christian Dior – Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

Kate Mara In Christian Dior - Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

Kate Mara attended Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces Party, to celebrate her cover, held at Soho House on Tuesday (April 8) in West Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a Dior tuxedo dress in a bright-red hue which gives the classic man’s jacket a feminine spin, combining the satin lapels, a short skirt and a deep V-neck.

I’m glad she opted for such interesting accessories in an unexpected rose-gold hue, including Rupert Sanderson ‘Rosanna’ platform sandals and an embellished Dolce & Gabbana ‘Miss Dea’ clutch.

Hair- and makeup-wise, this look was typically Kate: neutral, simple and flawless.

Working a high-low mix, she styled her look with snakeskin pumps, an emerald pendant necklace and a Burberry Prorsum ‘Petal’ clutch.

Only the pants are preventing me from loving this look.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Front Row

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Front RowDesigner Nicholas Ghesquière’s debut collection for Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 hit the Paris Fashion Week catwalk on Wednesday (March 5) at the Cour Carree in France. The Vuitton-dressed front row sat with bated breath to glimpse the new LV under Ghesquière, where skins, suede and leather rendered in retro-mod shapes took to the runway.

Fan Bingbing: A sophisticated, dark leather trench with brass buttons, mixed with an LV logo handbag and a pair of oversized shades, were the makings of a stylishly cinematic entrance by the Asian star—if only she could locate another pair of heels, other than her go-to super-platforms. Long, straight locks and a matte red lip completed her dramatic ensemble.

Chloe Sevigny: The actress tied on a navy-blue, windowpane sweater coat, worn with black tights, booties and a tassel-adorned purse. Barely-there makeup only brought home her effortless-cool vibe.
