Kate Mara In J. Mendel – 2013 Emmy Awards

Kate Mara In J Mendel - 2013 Emmy Awards

Kate Mara took to the red carpet at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California, wearing the opposite of her sister Rooney Mara’s current favoured colour: black.

Her all-white, J. Mendel Spring 2014 design betrayed a bit of its innocence with its sheer bodice that featured a mesh-lace, peekaboo effect and its daring slit-to-there, double-panel skirt.

She kept the white theme going strong with her lacquered nails and white-edged, clear Charlotte Olympia platform pumps, which actually seemed a bit overwrought for this occasion.

A more minimal, smokey eye, nude lip and a crisp, spit-straight bob finished off the barely accessorized look.

White-hot or not?

Front Row @ Michael Kors Spring 2014

Front Row @ Michael Kors Spring 2014

Michael Kors presented his Spring 2014 collection in The Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York City during Mercedes Benz Fashion week and the front row was lit up with many PYTs.

Kate Mara: I love how opposite Kate is to her noir-loving sister, Rooney Mara. Kate looked sensational in this carnation-pink long-sleeved Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2013 dress with a flared hem. Like Katie she opted for nude Michael Kors accessories, with her red hair worn down on this rare occasion.

Katie Holmes: Having presented her Holmes & Yang collection a few days before, a relaxed and refreshed star took her front row seat looking radiant wearing a pretty mid-calf 50s-style Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2013 skirt with a romantic rose-print styled with a leaf cashmere knit sweater, nude belt, clutch and ‘Avra’ pumps from the same collection.

Harley Viera-Newton: Working a chic Park-Avenue-princess look, the socialite wore a pink cropped jacket with the matching strapless dress and white ‘Evelyn’ pumps from Michael Kors’ Pre-Fall 2013 collection with white-rimmed shades and a white clutch. You may remember that Naya Rivera wore the same dress sans cropped jacket recently.

Kate Mara In Dolce & Gabbana – 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Kate Mara In Dolce & Gabbana - 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Kate Mara kept things short and sweet at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards, hosted by Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen, on Monday night at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Wearing an alternative interpretation of an LBD from Dolce & Gabbana, the ‘House of Cards’ actress also followed the see-through trend with the doily cutouts that perforated this frock.

Lined in illusion nude from the waist down, the top portion played peek-a-boo with a black bra-lette, while a gorgeous, but seemingly out-of-place, jade-green necklace tumbled into the lacy neckline of the dress.

The pendant’s colour did set alight her auburn waves while spicing up her radiant, yet minimal makeup.

A Brian Atwood ‘Concy’ clutch, studded peep-toe Brian Atwood ‘Carla Laser Team’ pumps put a punk edge on this dark flower-child look.

Kate Mara In Delpozo by Josep Font – 2013 Met Gala

Kate Mara In Delpozo by Josep Font - 2013 Met Gala

Kate Mara joined her sister Rooney Mara on the red carpet this evening in New York City for the 2013 Met Gala.

The actress selected a Delpozo by Josep Font dress which was created especially for the event.

Her burgundy dress, with a heart-shaped neckline featuring architectural modules, does shout ‘punk’, but the styling keeps the look very demure.

Kate’s signature bun and black strappy sandals completed her look.

Should Kate have made an effort to punk out her accessories, or does the dress speak for itself?

Kate Mara In Prada – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Kate Mara In Prada - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Before Kate Mara took a seat with her ‘House of Cards’ co-stars Robin Wright and Kevin Spacey at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner last night in Washington D.C., she dealt her own fashion card on the red carpet.

At first glance, her crisp white Prada gown just registered as plain.

But Miuccia Prada’s signature quirk factor came into play with the oversized bow plastered to the neckline and the slightly exaggerated poof of the three-quarter sleeve.

Another unexpected, cool-girl twist—and the only real spot of colour here—was her zesty lime-green, embellished Prada clutch.

To match the simple vintage mood of her dress, her styling was effortlessly done with a slate-blue smokey eye, nude lippie and side-parted bun.

Was Kate’s look white-haute or white-not, in your opinion?

Kate Mara In Mulberry – Netflix’s ‘House of Cards’ For Your Consideration Q&A

Kate Mara In Mulberry - Netflix's 'House of Cards' For Your Consideration Q&A

Kate Mara attended Netflix’s ‘House of Cards’ For Your Consideration Q&A held at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

I’m in love with her short-set look from the Mulberry Spring 2013 collection.

Not only does the look feature a pretty floral motif, but also a contrasting Peter Pan collar with dazzling embellishments.

With her hair tied back into a neat bun, the actress opted for smouldering smoky eyes with her fun summery look.

Nude shimmering Brian Atwood ‘Debra’ pumps provided the finishing touch.
