Who Wore Alice + Olivia Better…Mena Suvari or Bella Thorne?

Who Wore Alice + Olivia Better Mena Suvari and Bella Thorne

Amping up the retro feel of her Alice + Olivia strapless printed dress with a full-skirt, Mena Suvari added vibrant red Brian Atwood pumps and a matching lip colour to her look for the Australian premiere of ‘American Pie: Reunion’ back in March of 2012.

Just over a year later, Disney star Bella Thorne wore the same dress, which she belted, to the LA premiere of ‘The Host’.

Also opting to wear her hair up and apply a red lip colour, Bella styled her look with black strappy sandals.

I was captivated by Mena’s styling then, and that still applies now – she wins by a long mile for me.

Coach 3rd Annual Evening Of Cocktails And Shopping To Benefit The Children’s Defense Fund

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

Mena Suvari In Georges Hobeika Couture – Jamie Kennedy’s New Year’s Eve Party

Mena Suvari In Georges Hobeika Couture - Jamie Kennedy's New Year's Eve Party

Mena Suvari attended the ‘First Night 2013′ New Year’s Eve party hosted by Jamie Kennedy at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Monday night in Hollywood, California.

The ‘American Pie’ actress wore a Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture frock.

While the colour is very festive, I have to say I’m not too fond of the high neckline on this raspberry cocktail dress with a full chiffon skirt and open back.

I would’ve been tempted to fold that neckpiece under the top to give it a bateau neckline or she should’ve worn her hair up like the runway model.

Black accessories, including a clutch and ankle-strap Monika Chiang pumps, plus wavy tresses falling down her back completed her look.

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Party

H&M hosted a party in New York City to celebrate their Maison Martin Margiela collaboration on Tuesday evening.

Mena Suvari: Despite not being a fan of Mena’s trompe l’oeil bodysuit, she’s totally working this look, as per. She styled the look with a navy ‘Hitched Up’ skirt, tan wedges with a Perspex heel and a giant silver metallic candy wrapper clutch (a must-have from this collection). She was my favourite at this event.

Leigh Lezark: I’m not surprised that the DJ picked the most colourful and difficult-to-wear piece from the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection. She’s never one to fade into the background. The look includes a colourful printed-scarves top and skirt. She opted for the wedges in black.

Selma Blair: The actress wore the black version of the ‘Horizontally Worn’ dress with black wedges. I love how she styled the look with the china bumps and red lip colour, but I prefer the blue version of this dress which appears in the lookbook.

Julianne Moore: A simple black Maison Martin Margiela for H&M suit with peaked shoulders look super chic on Julianne.

Sarah Jessica Parker: The actress looked like an Olsen twin engulfed with so many layers and an oversized blazer.

Helena Christensen: The supermodel makes this £179.99 leather ‘Car Seat Cover’ dress look even more expensive. She styled her look with all black accessories.

Mena Suvari In Georges Chakra Couture – 11th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

Mena Suvari also attended the 11th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree last night, which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California.

Even with the sassy attitude, the ‘American Pie’ actress can still pull off sweet cocktail dresses like this Georges Chakra Spring 2012 Couture frock.

I’m glad the white silk gazar dress with pleats and floral embroidered straps was modified from the runway version, which has a ‘here comes the bride’ feel to it with the train.

She joined a host of stars who carried an Edie Parker clutch to this event, hers was a silver confetti clutch, which would’ve been a lot less overwhelming had it been a tad smaller.

Like Ashley Madekwe, Mena opted for an interesting choice of footwear, selecting lilac ankle-strap peep-toes when silver or white would’ve been such an obvious choice.

Dana Rebecca Designs silver drop earrings, a sleek centre-parted hairstyle and cat-eyes completed her look.

Some of you were so keen on Ashley’s stand-out shoe choice, so I would be interested on your thoughts on Mena’s.
