Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Leslie Mann rocked quite a different look on the red carpet at Teen Vogue’s 10th Anniversary Young Hollywood party in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday evening.

She rocked a bold Rodarte Fall 2012 floral dress.

This sleeveless black-and-red floral jacquard A-line dress with a sharp pointed collar is a huge departure from the uber-girlie dresses we are used to seeing from Leslie.

She spoiled me so much with a succession of colourful looks this summer that I’m not sure how I feel about this darker look.

What I do know is I don’t like her clunky Rodarte footwear.

A slicked-back side-parted ponytail and a copper lip colour completed her look.

Yay or nay?

Leslie Mann rarely disappoints on the red carpet, and Sunday’s 2012 Emmy Awards were no exception.

The actress stood out in a two-tone Naeem Khan Spring 2013 gown. Our third Spring 2012 gown of the night.

I love the mix of the white floral-beaded racer-back top with the glorious marigold full-skirt.

Her turquoise Lorraine Schwartz were gorgeous, but just not quite right for this look.

Despite that she’s still one of my favorites at this event.

After a run of summer LBDs, celebs are finally brightening up the red carpet with citrus hues.

Orange, tangerine, coral… call them what you will; finally celebs are taking inspiration from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Alberta Ferretti, Jean Paul Gaultier and Jill Stuart’s Spring 2012 runway shows to rock this bold, bright colour on the red carpet.

Victoria Beckham, Kristin Davis, Ashley Greene and Leslie Mann have all been successful in pulling off this hue in a variety of silhouettes from figure-hugging to fit-and-flare.

If you are apprehensive about wearing orange, break up the colour a bit with a nude belt or work the look à la Solange Knowles by adding bold accessories to offset the colour slightly.

Brighter colours in hues like red-orange and tangerine often work best.

I love orange. I have an orange Equipment shirt and an orange DVF dress, which I love to mix with other bold colours and prints.

Are you a fan of this trend?

Leslie Mann was nothing less than her usual perfect self when she hit the red carpet at Universal CityWalk in California yesterday evening with co-star Anna Kendrick for the ‘ParaNorman’ premiere.

Dressed in a coral Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 dress, the actress was glowing on the red carpet.

In the absence of a clutch, her flirty pocketed frock, accented with the designer’s signature leather waistband, was simply styled with nude Givenchy pumps.

Two-tone wavy tresses and a gorgeous coral lip shade to match her dress completed her look.

As I said in the beginning, perfect as always.

The Armani Privé Fall 2012 show drew a sophisticated set of A-List celebs, as you would expect.

Leslie Mann: The actress, who attended the Chanel show earlier in the day, did a complete 180. Looking forgettable at Chanel, she wowed at Armani. With her hair swept to one side, the glamazon looked outstanding wearing an Armani LBD with a handkerchief hemline.

Zoe Saldana: It’s always a delight to see Zoe during fashion week. Looking impeccable from head-to-toe, the actress wore a shimmering coral Giorgio Armani Fall 2012 halter dress which she styled with black accessories. I have already picked out my Prive wish list for her.

Shailene Woodley: The ‘Descendants’ actress attended her first Couture runway show. She kept her look simple wearing an Armani Resort 2013 ivory ¾-sleeve jacket with black pants.

As always, it was a star-studded front row for the Chanel Fall 2013 Couture presentation on Tuesday morning.

Diane Kruger: I wasn’t too enamoured with Diane’s look. The blue Chanel Resort 2013 dress (her second from this collection) isn’t the issue, it’s the styling. The styling tells me she’s still on vacation mode. The baker boy hat and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ spike flats don’t work with this dress for me.

Poppy Delevigne: I much preferred Poppy’s look. Whilst considerably more laidback wearing a Chanel ensemble featuring a white shirt and denim skirt, the styling is perfected from her round sunnies to her shimmering Givenchy gold glitter sandals.

Alexa Chung: As always, I have a strong case of déjà vu when it comes to the British presenter. I’m sure many of you will agree that you feel like you’ve seen this look before….several times. Always in back-to-school mode, Alexa did opt for some interesting accessories on this occasion. Fur-trimmed Giuseppe Zanotti black strappy sandals and a mini Chanel patent quilted shoulder bag completed the look.

Leslie Mann: Usually I’m Leslie’s biggest fan, but I failed to get excited about her Chanel look which features an ivory pleated blouse which she teamed with a black tweed high-waisted pencil skirt. Her ensemble was very sophisticated but a tad boring, even with the addition of the red Chanel quilted bag.

Clemence Poesy: The French actress looked chic, as always, giving us an ‘I got dressed in 5 mins’ effortless look. Wearing a Chanel black embroidered and cap-sleeve dress with an A-line skirt and a cut-out back, she styled her look with a silver Chanel glitter clutch and black buckled Oxfords. Natural looking makeup and wavy tresses provided the finishing touches.

Milla Jovovich: This Chanel Resort 2013 dress is so very pretty, but feels too girlie for Milla. This look should’ve been saved for Elle Fanning.
