Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party Red Carpet Roundup

Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party Red Carpet Roundup

With the A-list in town, the Women in Film pre-Oscar cocktail party was one of the most star-studded events on yesterday’s schedule (February 28). Here’s a little round-up of who joined Lupita Nyong’o and Jaime King on the red carpet:

Helen Mirren: Forever flawless Helen Mirren played host for the evening wearing a Max Mara ivory mini v-neck top and skirt. While the thick tights look a little too wintery, Helen looked suitably chic and demure.

Mandy Moore: Opting for a timelessly elegant monochrome look, Mandy Moore dazzled in a Max Mara cream shawl collar jacket and structured black jumpsuit. A beaded monochrome clutch may have been matchy-matchy choice but here it works. While I think the hems of the jumpsuit could have done with being an inch shorter, this look is classic Mandy; stylish, approachable and understatedly lust worthy.

Lake Bell: Making a head-turning appearance in top-to-toe silver, Lake Bell made a surprising choice last night in an unstructured Max Mara silver three-quarter sleeve dress. I’m used to seeing Lake in such tailored, figure-hugging, sexy pieces that this came as quite as a surprise. High-shine metallic sandals and matching clutch made for a unique red carpet turn that certainly offers something different to the mix. What do you think of this look for Lake?

Lake Bell In Louis Vuitton – 2013 Whitney Gala

Lake Bell In Louis Vuitton - CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Event

Lake Bell joined a host of stars including Dianna Agron, Michelle Williams and Alexa Chung on the red carpet for the Louis Vuitton 2013 Whitney Gala held at Skylight at Moynihan Station in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress lit up my world earlier in the week in Altuzarra, but here, not so much.

Mostly because I feel like I have seen this lingerie-inspired LV dress several times before, but this version has an ombre glitter hem compared to the much-worn version with the lace trims we’ve seen on Victoria Beckham.

The styling is the biggest offender here. If I was Superman those peep-toe LV mules would be my kryptonite.

Lake Bell In Altuzarra – ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Lake Bell In Altuzarra - ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Lake Bell joined a host of stars for ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

Even though covered up in this Altuzarra Fall 2013 twill dress, which is tailored to perfection, the actress is still smouldering hot.

The look is kept modern with contrasting black crepe draped bodice and exposed zip detail, which she styled with black-and-white Gianvito Rossi pumps and a black metal mesh clutch.

Still opting to keep her hair makeup simple, she slicked back her hair and added some shimmer via her gold eye shadow and pink lip colour.

Lake Bell In Jenni Kayne – 2013 ‘Take Home A Nude’ Benefit Art Auction And Party

Lake Bell In Jenni Kayne - 2013 'Take Home A Nude' Benefit Art Auction And Party

Lake Bell attended the 2013 ‘Take Home a Nude’ Benefit Art Auction and Party at Sotheby’s in New York City yesterday.

The actress kept to a straightforward style with her Jenni Kayne Fall 2013 black, strapless tunic and pocket pant, which she accessorized with a metallic statement cuff and mini-clutch.

The easy separates lost a bit of their effortlessness due to the sheen effect and the bunched look of the rolled pant leg that just seemed ill-fitting.

That said, she did maintain the ‘nude’ theme with her Kurt Geiger ‘Britton’ pumps and her minimally styled hair and barely-there makeup.

Lake Bell In Dolce & Gabbana – 2013 ESPY Awards

Lake Bell In Dolce & Gabbana - 2013 ESPY Awards

Lake Bell attended the 2013 ESPY Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California yesterday evening as one of the guest presenters.

The actress wore a dark-green Dolce & Gabbana signature lace dress with a sweetheart neckline and scalloped hemline, which she styled with a black-and-blue Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch for an interesting contrast.

Black-and-gold ankle-strap sandals and a hot-red lip colour completed her look.

Lake Bell In Etro – Elle’s 19th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Lake Bell gave us a sultry pose on the red carpet at Elle’s Women in Hollywood Celebration, held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, yesterday evening.

She was one of the many stars who didn’t opt for Calvin Klein; instead she wore an Etro Fall 2012 dress.

Her paisley-print dress with a sheer yoke and black sleeves isn’t my favourite look from her, but she is working the hell out of it.

I would’ve preferred her look if the sleeves had been sheer or had the same print as the dress presented on the runway.

A simple satin clutch and black criss-cross sandals completed her look.

This is the first time I have seen Lake’s flame-coloured hair and I have to say it’s really working for her – and I’m one who takes a while to accept change.

Lake Bell In Andrew Gn – 2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Sporting a new flame red hair colour, Lake Bell joined Christina Hendricks on the red carpet at the 2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday evening.

The actress was smouldering hot wearing an Andrew Gn brilliant blue gown.

I wish Lake had opted for a silver Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch, instead of gold, to complement the crystal beaded embellishment on her gown, but the gown is so gorgeous I can barely focus on the clutch.

A selection of Pomellato bangles, a statement ring and a simple updo completed her look.

I would’ve loved a smoky eye with this look, but Lake opted to go au natural.
