‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7 – #8′ Venice Film Festival Premiere

'Miu Miu Women's Tales #7 - #8' - Premiere - 71st Venice Film Festival

A collection of six starlets were at the ‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7-#8’ premiere, held during the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Thursday (August 28). Naturally, all were representing the label, donning a range of Miu Miu looks that couldn’t have each been more different if they tried.

Dakota Fanning: The trendsetting starlet wore a Miu Miu creamy white satin sheath dress with beaded embellishment, paired with nude platform Miu Miu pumps and a bejeweled grass-green Miu Miu clutch. I would have loved to see the same punch of colour in her shoe, along with an updo.

Kirsten Dunst: The actress went for a retro spin in an A-line Miu Miu dress featuring a funky blue and white swirl print. She accessorized with pops of silver via her clutch and sandals, not to mention the flash of those side-swept platinum locks.

Kate Mara: Donning the same nude platforms as Dakota, Kate wore hers with a nude Miu Miu dress with allover paillettes and a sparkling, decorative neckline. The design was pretty and carried with it a vintage flair, but the colour washed out her complexion, especially with her neutral makeup.

Felicity Jones: Her embellished, midnight-blue Miu Miu dress with sheer sleeves had the fall season written all over it. Black pointy pumps did nothing to lighten the look, but the actress did take a more summery, breezy approach to her barely-there makeup.

Lena Dunham: Once again opting for a head-scratcher of a look, the ‘Girls’ star didn’t exactly stand out for the right reasons in her sombre, daresay frumpy, patterned frock. The Prada dress and the flat, block-heel sandals aged her far beyond my liking—as did her beehive ’do.

Nicoletta Romanoff: The only one to really embrace what’s left of summer, Nicoletta was the most polished of the bunch in her flirty and youthful white ruffle blouse and lemon-yellow skirt by Miu Miu, paired with breezy waves and sun-kissed makeup. If I were to nitpick, I would have selected a colourful, fun sandal not this chunkier brown pair.

Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2014 Emmy Awards

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Lena Dunham made a grand entrance at the 2014 Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

Forgive my sensory overload, but where to even begin?

The ‘Girls’ star gave a whole new meaning to the word ‘bold’ in her daring Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture finale number that featured a baby-pink blouse with a Peter Pan collar paired with a ballgown skirt… and what a skirt it was.

The voluminous piece was an extravaganza of layered tulle tiers, creating a pink-to-red ombre effect that ran reverse of the runway colours, making it perhaps even more reminiscent of fluffy cotton-candy.

Fred Leighton jewels may have been lost in the sea of froth and frou-frou, but Lena’s new beauty look carved out its own statement. Her white-platinum bob is an edgy new direction for her, but she could have done with less makeup as her dark kohl-outlined eye and red lip were too heavy here.

This is an Emmys ensemble that will be remembered for years to come—for better or worse. What do you make of it?

Lena Dunham In Fausto Puglisi – 2014 Bookexpo America

Lena Dunham In Fausto Puglisi - 2014 Bookexpo America

Lena Dunham attended Day 3 of the 2014 BookExpo America at The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Saturday (May 31) in New York City, where she presented her new book ‘Not That Kind Of Girl’.

I have sat and thought about Lena’s Giambattista Valli Couture Met Gala dress and, in short, I realised that I loved the look but didn’t like the hair and makeup.

The same applies here, as Lena certainly has the personality to pull off this Fausto Puglisi palm-tree-motif T-shirt and sculpted ‘pannier’ mini skirt with gold and crystal-embroidery palm-tree motifs from the Spring 2014 collection.

Pulling down the T-shirt to make it sit better, and adding some makeup, and this look would’ve been great, because her coral Jimmy Choo ‘Aza’ footwear choice couldn’t be better.

Anyone agree? I’m sure many strongly disagree?

Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture - 2014 Met Gala

Lena Dunham was at the 2014 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5).

The ‘Girls’ actress, who is always a bit of a red-carpet wild card, wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture high-low design that loosely paid homage to the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ exhibit with its abbreviated ball-skirt silhouette.

Even though it was strapless and a mullet dress, she wore it quite well.

The black frock, which was festooned with blue and pink floral embroidery, was the main attraction here, as she did little to clutter the effect. Minimal jewels, barely-there makeup and plain black pumps all worked in her favour on this occasion.

For someone I place more often in the ‘miss’ category, this look I actually found to be more of a ‘hit’. Would you agree?

Lena Dunham In Marc Jacobs – 2014 Point Honors New York Gala

Lena Dunham In Marc Jacobs - 2014 Point Honors New York Gala

Lena Dunham attended the 2014 Point Honors New York Gala held at the New York Public Library on Monday (April 7) in New York City.

The ‘Girls’ actress/writer wore a Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 bronze-toned sequin gown for the occasion.

I already know that the majority of you will dislike this, but aside from the hair and the makeup, I’m going to give this look a pass.

I like how the deep V-neckline allows for a hint of femme sensuality and that she made the effort to give us ladylike elegance.

Whether or not you think she succeeded is another issue.

Lena Dunham In Narciso Rodriguez – ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’

Lena Dunham In Narciso Rodriguez - ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’Lena Dunham was a special guest on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Tuesday (March 18) in New York City, where she admitted her slight obsession for the late-night host.

The ‘Girls’ star also showed off her girlier side in a Narciso Rodriguez Pre-Fall 2014 coral-pink frock.

With structured, simple lines, the tee dress had the ease of a T-shirt, which she dressed up with a pair of patent-nude stilettos and freshly radiant, blush-tinged makeup.

With the rich, sweet colour taking precedence, and the more sophisticated tone also a plus, this was an improved look for Lena.

Too plain or pretty in pink?
