Which Was Your Favourite Maggie Gyllenhaal 'White House Down' Promo Tour Look

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s promo tour for ‘White House Down’ was short and sweet, yet she showcased a lot of diversity when it came to her looks.

She started off wearing a sexy Alexander McQueen dress for the Washington premiere, followed by a chic Vionnet frock for her arrival at ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’.

The actress managed to pull off a tricky knitted Dior strapless dress for the New York premiere and ended her run wearing a cute pastel ensemble by Chloe.

Two things I learned from this promo tour are that Maggie loved both her Casadei kitten heels and her pink lippie.

When it comes to my favourite, I’m stuck between the McQueen and the Vionnet.

"White House Down" New York Premiere - ArrivalsI’m so excited that Maggie Gyllenhaal is in a big-budget film ‘White House Down’ and on the red carpet circuit. The indie-darling isn’t typically a red carpet fixture, and I’m just loving seeing her effortlessly adorable style event after event. She is rocking the pixie cut better than anyone right now, and she’s been embracing the bright pink lip lately, and doing it with flair.

To get all the details on her fresh and flushed look from the New York City premiere of White House Down on Tuesday, we went straight to her makeup artist, Molly R. Stern.

Stern began by spritzing Caudalie Beauty Elixir on Maggie’s face, and then massaged BY TERRY Serum De Rose and Natura Bisse C+C Vitamin Cream into her skin. This prepped the skin with anti-aging and smoothing properties.

Next, Stern applied a light coat of Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation to even out the complexion.

On Maggie’s cheeks, Stern applied Flower Beauty Win Some, Rouge Some Crème Blush in Pure Petunia as a base, followed by a dusting of CARGO Blush in Catalina for an added flush.

For the eyes, Stern dabbed VS Makeup Hypergloss Eye Shimmer in Golden Lights Gold on her lids and a light dusting of NARS Matte Eyeshadow in Sophia under the lash line.

Then she layered BY TERRY Terrybly Mascara in Black Parti-Pris and Moka Brown to extend the look of Maggie’s lashes naturally.

Finally, Stern applied Flower Beauty Kiss Stick High-Shine Lip Color in LS12 Sweet Peony all over Maggie’s lips, followed by the same lipstick in LS16 Petunia Petals just in the center to give her lips a subtle punch and added pout.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Chloé - Good Morning America

Maggie Gyllenhaal continued to promote her latest movie ‘White House Down’ by making a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ yesterday morning in New York City.

The actress wore a Chloe Pre-Fall 2013 look consisting of a nude silk short-sleeved top and a yellow skirt overlaid with white netted floral appliqués.

After a few dark looks I’m buoyed by this outing, which she accessorized with a Carven tan clutch and matching Saint Laurent sandals.

Makeup-wise, she opted for a barely there made-up look with no nail polish.

You may remember that Maria Sharapova wore the same skirt in pink while promoting her ‘Sugarpova’ candy range in Selfridges last week.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Dries Van Noten - Gotham Magazine Summer Cover Party

Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the Gotham Magazine celebration of its summer issue, of which she graces as their cover star, in New York City yesterday evening.

Taking a break from promoting her latest movie, ‘White House Down’, I am surprised it’s taken Maggie this long to wear a look from Dries Van Noten’s Fall 2013 collection.

The actress selected a sleeveless black frock with a feathered skirt which she styled with an Alexander McQueen clutch and her favourite Casadei ‘Blade’ kitten heels.

I wish Maggie has opted for the runway necklace, or any statement necklace to lift this look, which despite all those distracting feathers does need something else to give the look a touch more pizzazz.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Christian Dior - 'White House Down' New York Premiere

Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the New York premiere of ‘White House Down’ held at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City on Tuesday evening.

The actress wore a Christian Dior Fall 2013 bi-colour strapless knit patterned dress featuring a ruffle peplum.

This look places me firmly on the fence. On the one hand, I have loved Maggie’s choices so far during this promo tour as they have been varied and interesting.

The minimalist styling is perfect for this look and I love this bold pink lip colour she’s been rocking lately.

On the other, I’m not crazy about the length. It almost kills the entire look for me.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Vionnet  - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Following the Washington D.C. premiere of her latest movie ‘White House Down’ on Friday evening, Maggie Gyllenhaal was spotted back in New York City visiting ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ to continue to hype the movie.

The actress wore a pretty Vionnet Pre-Fall 2013 long-sleeved silk wrap dress with colourful shades of pastel-pink and blue, with green and black also added into this colourful mix.

Opting for subtle black accessories, she added a leather clutch and the same Casadei ‘Blade’ kitten heels she wore to the premiere.

This is an atypical look for Maggie; simple, effortless and chic.
