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.

Coach 3rd Annual Evening Of Cocktails And Shopping To Benefit The Children’s Defense Fund

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.
