Who Wore Paule Ka Better…Lily Collins or Celia Freijeiro?

Who Wore Paule Ka Better Lily Collins or Celia Freijeiro

Lily Collins attended the 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards wearing a Paule Ka Black Carpet 2013 Collection black gown with a striking large ivory satin bow at the back styled with wavy tresses and a hot red lip.

Celia Freijeiro wore the same dress to the Goya Awards 2014 earlier this month, perhaps over-styling the look with the Yanes tiara; plus, she added stunning drop earrings and a complementary clutch.

For keeping it simple, Lily wins for me.

Lily Collins In Mary Katrantzou – Lancome Pre BAFTA Party

Lily Collins In Mary Katrantzou - Lancome Pre BAFTA Party

As the face of the brand, Lilly Collins attended the Lancôme pre BAFTA party held at The London Edition Hotel on Friday (February 14) in London, England.

The pretty actress, with the trademark big brows, donned the Mary Katrantzou Resort 2014 strapless frock I have had on my wish list for some while.

This exquisite ‘Foli’ dress printed with a colourful array of rose grids, has a fully boned bodice and voluminous skirt creating the ultimate female silhouette.

Keeping accessories muted for maximum impact, she added Soffer Ari rings, nude pumps and a purple Smythson ‘Soho Diary’ clutch which complemented her bold berry lip.

You can buy Lily’s Mary Katrantzou ‘Foli’ Dress from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.

Hair Trend Spotting: Chic Bobs

Hair Trend Spotting Chic Bobs

Bobs have been extremely popular in Hollywood for quite a few months now, and never has that been more apparent than at Tuesday’s Stand Up For Cancer event, when everyone from host Reese Witherspoon to attendees Emma Roberts, Lily Collins and Jessica Alba arrived with their own version of the season’s hottest hairstyle.

The best part is how truly versatile this chic cut can be. To get Reese’s slightly messy-with-bangs version, use a texturizing product such as Blow Pro Beach Blow Texturizing Mist, and create subtle waves with a curling wand, such as Conair Infiniti Curling Wand Styler.

For Emma’s sleek and smooth version, blow dry with a paddle brush, and use a glossing product like John Frieda Frizz-Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist.

And to get Lily’s smooth on top, but messy on the bottom look, combine the two techniques: Keep the top smooth, but add a texturizing product from half way down the shaft to the ends of the hair, and then after creating waves, comb through them with a wide-tooth comb to give the hair a slightly ‘undone’ look. Finish it off with a flexible hold hairspray.

Lily Collins In Emilio Pucci – Hollywood Stands Up To Cancer

Lily Collins In Emilio Pucci - Hollywood Stands Up To Cancer

Lily Collins joined a host of stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba and Diane Kruger on the red carpet for the Hollywood Stands Up To Cancer event on Tuesday (January 28) held at The Book Bindery in Culver City, California.

Reviving her bold lip, the actress wore all black, donning an Emilio Pucci black lace tuxedo-style jumpsuit with beaded lapels from the Resort 2014 collection.

Styling her look with gold starburst earrings and the same Aperlai Paris black sandals with a jewelled strap that we recently saw on Nina Dobrev, Lily’s sexy take on menswear was one of my favourite looks from this event.

Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 Front Row

Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 Front Row

Chanel presented their ‘Metiers d’Art’ Show at Dallas Fair Park in Dallas, Texas yesterday evening, inviting a host of PYTs to sit in the front row.

Kristen Stewart: On Tuesday night, Chanel announced that Kristen will front the Pre-Fall 2014 campaign, which is set to debut in May. It will be interesting to see how this news is received considering people had a meltdown when Blake Lively was announced as the face of their ‘Mademoiselle’ bags. As expected, the actress brought her “I don’t give a s**t” attitude to the event, going braless wearing a crop top and camel-coloured leather oversized pants from Chanel’s Spring 2014 collection. Even though it is styled almost exactly how it is on the runway, it lost all its appeal on KStew.

Dakota Fanning: Donning a Chanel Fall 2013 Couture look, the dress was styled differently from the runway, losing the belt, hat and boots in favour of a pair of satin Brian Atwood ‘Stearling’ platform slingbacks. Not to take anything away from her pretty frock, but the most welcome thing here is the braided updo.

Lily Collins: Having worn a bold lip all summer, the actress worked a gorgeous berry lip, wearing a Chanel Fall 2013 cap-sleeved embellished copper layered dress styled with the runway suede over-the-knee boots. Even with so much embellishment on her dress, she added an on-trend ear cuff to her pretty look.
