The British Fashion Council Cocktail Party

The British Fashion Council held a cocktail party to celebrate the LONDON show ROOMS yesterday evening at the Skybar at the Mondrian Los Angeles.

Marisa Tomei: The actress continued to showcase her love for London-based designers by wearing a Marios Schwab jacket from the Spring 2012 collection. It’s surprising how this collection has suddenly become so popular this week. The jacket gets a pass, but those MC Hammer pants are not particularly flattering. The yellow shoes add a punch, but I can’t say I really like much about this look, which is very rare to say when it comes to Marisa.

Christa B. Allen: The ‘Revenge’ actress opted for a look from the David Koma Spring 2013 collection. Her nude-and-orange print dress is uber cute, but I can’t say the same about her lace-up ankle boots. They just don’t go with the dress.

Louise Roe: The TV host totally captured my attention in this printed ensemble. As a jumpsuit I like it, but she should’ve lost the additional shirt. Whilst the clutch is too big and dominating the look, which is no mean feat with that print, the toe-cap pumps are more complementary.

Marisa Tomei In Jonathan Saunders – ‘Inescapable’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Marisa Tomei attended the ‘Inescapable’ premiere at the Roy Thomson Hall during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival last night.

The actress opted for a Jonathan Saunders dress from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

Although I like this dress, I think I would’ve preferred Marisa in the orange halter-necked piece pictured on the model above. The bare shoulders and striking colour would’ve packed a bigger punch.

Marisa finished her look with gold accessories, including a Sergio Rossi ‘Paillon’ clutch and chunky cuff.

Who Wore Roksanda Ilincic Better? Princess Beatrice or Marisa Tomei

Princess Beatrice and Marisa Tomei wore this Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2012 dress just two days apart.

Their blush-tone ‘Izumi’ dress with a rounded neckline and long sleeves that lead into royal-blue frilled cuffs was a great look for both of them.

Princess Beatrice was the first to take the dress for a spin on the red carpet when she wore it to the ‘Britain Creates 2012′ Fashion & Art Gala in London.

The young royal’s sophisticated look was styled with Nicholas Kirkwood printed blue pumps and a gold Anya Hindmarch glitter clutch.

Marisa Tomei wore her dress during the Berluti private dinner during Paris Menswear Spring 2013 Fashion Week.

The brunette actress paired her look with a nude clutch bag and Aperlai colour-block heels in varying shades of blue.

I love the dress on both, so it comes down to the styling.

As you know, I thought Marisa’s shoes upstaged her dress somewhat, so Beatrice’s pitch-perfect styling of her dress makes her a winner in my eyes.

Marisa Tomei In Roksanda Ilincic – Berluti Private Dinner

Marisa Tomei surprisingly took in the Berluti Menswear Spring/Summer 2013 show during Menswear Paris Fashion Week at the Jardin du Palais Royal in France on Friday.

The actress wore a Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2012 dress we saw on the red carpet just six days ago courtesy of Princess Beatrice.

Like Beatrice, Marisa opted for some funky footwear, selecting the blue ‘Demi Circle’ peep-toes by Aperlai.

I love the dress and I’m lusting after the shoes, but I don’t like them together.

Marisa’s sleek sophisticated dress is totally overwhelmed by the heels. I saw the shoes before the dress.

Had the shoes been in a solid colour, I think it would’ve worked for me, but they’re too busy and distracting for this look.

A simple updo and nude clutch completed the look.

Marisa Tomei In Preen – 2012 Brooklyn Artists’ Ball After-Party

Marisa Tomei attended the 2012 Brooklyn Artists’ Ball After Party on Wednesday night in New York City.

The actress wore a Preen Fall 2012 dress.

Her black sheer dress with black-and-white floral embroidered throughout also has Swarovski crystal-embellished short sleeves.

Marisa accessorized her stylish dress with an Edie Parker green glittery oval clutch, a ‘Brooklyn’ gold pendant necklace, colourful bracelets, Nicholas Kirkwood booties.

We are used to seeing more colour from Marisa, but those accessories do pop against her dress.

Wavy tresses and a coral lip shade completed her look.
