ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration Roundup

Elle 1

Many more fashionable femmes joined the crush of glamour gals at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration, hosted yesterday night at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California.

Melissa McCarthy: One of ELLE’s November cover girls, Melissa took a trendsetting approach in a Calvin Klein ensemble, featuring a black leather-look top and pants and a white bolero jacket, to which she paired a Rauwolf ombre-effect clutch, studded sandals and a few gold cocktail rings. A pompadour-inspired ‘do topped off her edgier entrance.

Emilia Clarke: The ‘Game of Thrones’ starlet was polished in a sheer effect, nude Calvin Klein Spring 2013 frock, cinched in with a black belt. Nude sandals with an embellished metallic heel added an intriguing, style-forward note, while her wispy updo and soft rose-toned makeup were just plain pretty.

Gia Coppola: Also in Calvin Klein, the director-screenwriter skipped a dress in favour of separates including a wrap-front top and cropped black pants, adding some shine via gold sandals and a bit of colour via a berry lip lacquer.

Melonie Diaz In J. Mendel – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Melonie Diaz In J Mendel – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Melonie Diaz brought a pop of colour to the red carpet of Friday night’s 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.

Giving us an ‘orange is the new black’ moment, the actress wore a light tangerine J. Mendel halter gown with keyhole detail, a peplum empire waist and a thigh-high slit, which seemed rather unnecessary.

Even though she accessorized with a shot of shine via her metallic platform pumps and clutch, along with golden Marina B jewels, I still found this look to be a bit one-note. Perhaps a bolder lip would have brought some added flavour.

Peachy keen or not?

Melonie Diaz joined her co-star Octavia Spencer on the red carpet for the premiere of their latest movie ‘Fruitvale Station’, which was held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The red carpet newcomer wore a shimmering pink Reem Acra Spring 2012 strapless frock with body contouring panels, which showcased her beautiful curvaceous figure.

Styling was kept simple with Marina B ‘Onda Croissant’ white-gold earrings and peep-toes accented with multicoloured crystals.

‘Fruitvale Station’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

'Fruitvale Station' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The ‘Fruitvale Station’ premiere took place during Cannes Film Festival this evening following the photocall earlier today.

Octavia Spencer: As expected, the actress wore a Tadashi Shoji custom gown. We’ve seen the actress don many gowns in shade of cream, lavender, black and blue, but never a fiery hue like this red tulle-and-lace draped cape sleeve gown. The colour is so striking and the style so very flattering.

Ahna O’Reilly: The actress selected an ivory fully sequined Elie Saab one-sleeve gown with cut-outs at the waist.

Melonie Diaz: Like Octavia, Melonie also opted for a bold colour wearing an Emilio Pucci sea-blue chiffon gown accented with a black beaded belt and styled with silver jewels. Once again she worked a bold lip colour.

Melonie Diaz In Vintage Moschino – ‘Fruitvale Station’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Melonie Diaz In Vintage Moschino - ‘Fruitvale Station’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Melonie Diaz joined her co-star Octavia Spencer at the Palais des Festivals in France this afternoon for the ‘Fruitvale Station’ photocall during Cannes Film Festival.

The New Yorker selected a pretty vintage Moschino black-and-gold polka-dot drop-waist dress with a pleated skirt and white collar and cuffs.

This dress may suggest that she is younger than her 25 years, but considering we’ve seen Couture and Balmain worn to photocalls earlier today, I love the relaxed styling of her look and the flash of colour via her hot-pink lips.
