Who Wore Roksanda Better…Lizzy Caplan or Mel B?

Who Wore Roksanda Better Lizzy Caplan or Mel B

Lizzy Caplan showcased her style on the red carpet of Showtime’s ‘Masters Of Sex’ Season 2 Summer TCA press tour event back in July wearing a Roksanda Spring 2014 ensemble, with my eyes instantly going to her tri-colour skirt and, of course, those electric-blue Brian Atwood ‘Besame’ pumps.

Mel B, not known so much for her great choices on the red carpet, surprised me when she made this look her own a few weeks later for the ‘America’s Got Talent’ Season 9 post-show red carpet event, styling the skirt with a strapless top, with ‘Nudist’ sandals rounding out her look.

Even though this was a case of much improved for Mel, the fit of the skirt was a tad snug; regardless, this was an easy win for Lizzy and her consistent, effortless style.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier, Emma Stone In Valentino Couture, Allison Williams In Giambattista Valli Couture & Nikolaj Coster-Waldau In Salvatore Ferragamo

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier, Emma Stone In Valentino Couture

It was a week where glamour came back to the red carpet, with the Emmy Awards and the Venice Film Festival, and it’s from those two events that you couldn’t separate your favourites.

Lizzy Caplan swept you away in her Donna Karan Atelier black and white gown and Emma Stone was breathtaking making her return to the red carpet with a new ‘do in Valentino Couture.

I, on the other hand, had narrowed my favourites down to four. After much deliberation I picked Allison Williams in her enchanting Giambattista Valli Couture gown, which may have been too princessey for some, but this look swept me away.

There were many fine gents in suits this week. Mostly all black, so how do you pick them apart?

By the impeccable tailoring, slight detailing – such as contrasting buttons, a pocket square and straight bow tie – and of course devilishly good looks play their part, so up steps Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Salvatore Ferragamo to collect his prize for the win.

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting: The New Nude Lip

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting The New Nude Lip

This isn’t the traditional nude that camouflages your lips, making them unnoticeable. The new nude lips actually accentuate the natural tones of your skin allowing lips to pop in the subtlest way. Take cue from Julia Roberts, Kerry Washington, Lizzy Caplan, and Natalie Dorimer who were amongst the many celebs that flaunted the updated au naturel trend on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Carole Gonzalez balanced Kerry Washington’s navy smokey eye with an updated nude lip. Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Warm Caramel was used to make her neutral pout pop. The shimmering shade provides sheer wash of color and is ideal for complexions with warm undertones. When choosing a nude it’s important to pay attention to your skin’s undertones.

Los Angeles based celebrity makeup artist, Jake Bailey played up the flesh tones on Natalie Dorimer. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide- On Lip Pencil in Naked was used to line her lips. You can even make more room in your clutch and leave this one at home. This waterproof liner will get you through the entire evening. It also doubles as a primer to prep lips for lipstick or a gloss.

Bailey topped off Dorimer’s look with L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance. This shade works well on those who have cool undertones and it won’t leave lips feeling dry like other stains.

Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier – 2014 Emmy Awards

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Lizzy Caplan hit the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘Masters of Sex’ star wore a black and white silk gazar and sheer organza panel Donna Karan Atelier gown with high neck criss-cross straps.

This gown is one of those that you really have to see from every angle to fully appreciate. The unique cut of the bodice and straps looked incredibly striking on Lizzy’s frame, and the surprise white when she turned was a great moment.

Pearl and diamond jewelry, a sleek, low-hanging chignon and smokey eyes finished the look.

This is a big ‘yes’ moment for me on all fronts!

Lizzy Caplan In Valentino – Showtime 2014 Emmy Eve Soiree

Lizzy Caplan In Valentino - Showtime 2014 Emmy Eve Soiree

After a very busy weekend attending the BAFTAs Tea Party and Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration, Lizzy Caplan was back on the red carpet on Sunday evening (August 24) for Showtime’s Emmy Eve Soiree held at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, California.

Serving up a hat-trick of stellar looks in the space of 2 days, the ‘Masters of Sex’ actress wore a gorgeous Valentino macramé lace maroon halter dress accented with a brown leather neckline, side panel and waist from the Resort 2015 collection.

Looking very statuesque, despite the tea-length, her styling was once again on point with a Judith Leiber clutch and petal-pink Elie Saab sandals.

While I don’t have a crystal ball, I will predict she will knock it out of the fashion ballpark again tonight.
