Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Madonna walked the red carpet for the second London premiere for ‘W.E.’ yesterday as the first premiere took place during London Film Festival back in October last year.

On this occasion she wore a Jean Paul Gaultier black velvet column gown with a Dolce & Gabbana black lace cape.

Madonna added red leather fingerless gloves for an interesting twist, as well as her ‘WE’ pendant necklace, and Van Cleef & Arpels earrings.

Very rarely do we retrogress back to the ’40s to derive beauty inspiration, but if ever there was a wartime look to repeat, rockabilly victory rolls absolutely gets our vote.

Made famous by voluptuous sex kittens of yesteryear, it’s no wonder modern-day pinup Katy Perry is at the forefront of this revival—also seen on the Fall 2011 Miu Miu catwalk.

Thing is, there’s good news and bad news about this one. The bad news? This architectural-esque look is anything but DIY for beginners, though the brave can follow this excellent step-by-step tutorial. The good news? As Madonna and Diane Kruger prove, it is simple to simulate.

While the ‘material girl’ leaves hair loose on both sides for a breezy bohemian style, and the German actress’s locks are neatly brushed for a more polished look, both versions are quick and easy to recreate—and a great way to reinvent curls that are a few days old.

Starting with soft messy waves, insert a short off-center part using your forefinger. With both hands, roll a large section of hair away from your face, securing mid-crown with a few small hair pins (we love Conair Styling Essentials Mini Pins, $6.99 at Amazon.com).

For a bit of volume in the front (like Madonna’s look), gently insert your fingertips into the roll and loosen and lift strands by wiggling your digits. For a cleaner look, à la Diane, brush the hair above both ears back and pin alongside the roll. —India-Jewel Jackson

Madonna took to the red carpet in London last night for the ‘W.E.’ London Film Festival premiere which was held at the Empire, Leicester Square.

She donned a L’Wren Scott Spring 2012 dress.

The signature L’Wren Scott fitted LBD was embroidered with a hot-pink leaf detail from the shoulder to the hemline.

Fishnet tights and black pumps accessorized her look.

Despite feeling like I’ve seen this style of dress a thousand times on the red carpet, it was the perfect look for Madonna who is the director and not the star of this movie.

Madonna was at the Toronto Film Festival yesterday to promote her new movie, “W.E.”

The singer, who directed the movie, arrived at the press conference wearing a YSL Resort 2012 ensemble.

A red wool top with gathered sleeves was paired with a black perforated cotton skirt with lace effect

A black patent belt and YSL Tribute pumps completed her look.

For the Premiere, she stepped things up several notches in a Tom Ford Fall 2011 dress.

Her dress features a sheer black overlay with a round neckline, long sleeves and black trim detail on the bodice. It also has a sheer panel around above the hemline.

Madonna accessorized with fishnet tights, black ankle strap pumps and diamond jewelry including drop earrings and a “WE” pendant, in a nod to the movie.

Even though Madonna’s look consists of mostly black, I like her Premiere look.

Ravishing red lipstick helps win me over, as does her 40s-inspired hairstyle which is gorgeous too.

Madonna attended the 2011 Gucci Award for Women in Cinema event held at Hotel Cipriani in Venice this past Friday.

She chose a Gucci one-of-a-kind Forties-inspired black georgette long-sleeved evening gown. The chic dress features jet black and gold metal detail around the waist and a fully beaded long skirt.
She accessorized her look with a another pair of sparkly Miu Miu sunglasses, a black and diamond cocktail ring and diamond earrings.
The singer wore her hair in glamourous Old Hollywood-style curls with a stylish quiff.

Dramatic red lipstick completed her movie-star ensemble.

Madonna ditched the shades to present the award for ‘Outstanding Artistic Achievement’.
