Kristen Wiig In J. Mendel – ‘Hateship Loveship’ New York Screening

Kristen Wiig In J Mendel - 'Hateship Loveship' New York Screening

Kristen Wiig attended the ‘Hateship Loveship’ screening held at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday (April 8) in New York City.

Known for her love of all things minimalist, usually of the Balenciaga variety, I was somewhat taken aback by this colour-block asymmetrical choice from J. Mendel.

I can picture this sleeveless Fall 2014 dress – which features a solid leather mock neck and front panel at the bodice, a solid leather waistband and a draped asymmetric wrap-front skirt – on Chloe Sevigny, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Connelly and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley without the second layer of the skirt, but Kristen, who has worked an edgy look or two in her time, doesn’t sell it to me. Not one bit, and it’s got nothing to do with the safe Alejandro Ingelmo ‘Tron’pumps.

Rather, it’s because it feels so disingenuous and so far removed from her usual style – not that I don’t appreciate her stepping out of her comfort zone.

I love her and the dress, but not her in the dress.

Kristin Wiig In Valentino – ‘The Spoils Of Babylon’ LA Premiere

Kristin Wiig In Valentino - 'The Spoils Of Babylon' LA Premiere

Kristen Wiig attended the screening of ‘The Spoils Of Babylon’ held at DGA Theater on Tuesday (January 7) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Valentino arabesque long-sleeved sheer tulle dress with a bambolina skirt from the Spring 2014 collection.

While I love that Kristen opted for such a bold design, which is somewhat out of her comfort zone, I’m not too enamoured by the leg-stumpifying Casadei shoes. They don’t really complement the exotic nature of the dress.

Overall, this isn’t my favourite look from Kristen; she has done and can do better.

Kristen Wiig In Michael Kors – ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’ New York Screening

Kristen Wiig In Michael Kors – ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’ New York Screening2

Kristen Wiig attended the ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’ screening on Wednesday (December 18) in New York City.

Keeping up the masculine trend kick-started by Kim Basinger earlier in the week, Kristen wore a Michael Kors look featuring a white shirt with leg-of-mutton sleeves, sleek black pants and the brand’s signature oversized black bow.

Dark-grey Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps – designed with a pointed toe and cut-out sides for an alluring feminine shape – and a selection of House of Lavande rings accessorized her look.

Considering the bow, perhaps her hair up would’ve been ideal, but it doesn’t detract too much from her look.

Do you like Kristen’s feminine take on the menswear trend?

Kristen Wiig’s ‘Wake Up’ Eye Makeup Trick

Anchorman 2 Premiere, Sponsored By Buffalo David BittonThroughout her ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ press tour, actress Kristen Wiig has been taking fashion risk after fashion risk, but has kept her hair and makeup simple. Things were no different last night at the New York City premiere of the film.

Kristen’s makeup was quite simple, and she employed two of the best tricks in the book to help widen your eyes and make yourself look more awake.

Considering she’s been globetrotting from premiere to premiere, the actress is likely feeling quite jetlagged at this point, so it was quite smart of her makeup artist to use these tricks.

First up, Kristen’s inner eyelids (the lower waterline) were lined with a white eyeliner. This trick instantly brightens the eye area and any nude-, white- or peach-colored liner creates this effect. Try Merle Norman Inner Eyeliner, which is specifically designed to stay put on that wet area of the eyes, or Blinc Eyeliner Pencil in White, which is also a waterproof formula.

The next trick is to put white eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eyes. This also helps the eyes look wider and more awake. Try Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in White 0 for a matte finish, or if you prefer a pearlized effect, Stila Jewel Eye Shadow in Opal is a great option.

As a final element, Kristen’s makeup artist didn’t bring her upper or lower eyeliner all the way to the inner corners of the eyes, which helps accentuate the white that is there.

Voilà! Wide awake.

Kristen Wiig In Prada – ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ New York Premiere

Kristen Wiig In Prada - 'Anchorman 2 The Legend Continues' New York Premiere

Kristen Wiig attended the ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ New York premiere alongside Christina Applegate and Meagan Good on Sunday evening (December 15) held at the Beacon Theatre.

The actress wore a Prada dual-colour dove-grey-and-salmon embroidered and embellished gown with gathered detailing.

As you know, I am not a fan of Prada gowns. In fact, I have only liked two this year: Lupita Nyong’o’s and Michelle Dockery’s.

This gown loses me from the empire-waist down.

There is just too much going on. I’m not a fan of the salmon – maybe a mellow dusky-pink would’ve worked better – nor do I like the front embroidered panel.

Bravo to Kristen for taking a risk with this look. Sadly, for me, it didn’t pay off on this occasion.
