Mia Wasikowska In Prada – 2012 Met Gala

Mia Wasikowska joined a number of celebrities wearing Prada at the 2012 Met Gala in New York City last night.

The young actress looked prim and pretty wearing a raspberry cady-silk short-sleeve gown with a black waistband and high neck collar enhanced with black crystal embroidery.

Prada shoes and clutch accessorize the look.

Retro-waves and dark lips – two of the night’s biggest beauty trends – add the perfect finishing touches.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Fall 2012

Miu Miu also had a celeb-packed front row yesterday.

Mia Wasikowska: The current face of Miu Miu was front and centre wearing a bi-colour pink-and-black dress with a flared skirt. This is a typically demure choice for the actress, but I wish she would opt for shoes in a colour other than nude just once.

Lea Seydoux: The French actress was in head-to-toe Prada, which is not surprising considering she’s the face of Prada’s Resort 2012 ad campaign. What is surprising is that she’s cut off all her lovely hair. I’m not sure if it is for a new role, or if she just fancied a change, but I did not recognise her. She donned an embroidered black Prada dress with her second pair of Prada flame heels, this time in green. A black flame clutch completed her look.

Katy Perry: The Paris Fashion Week Fall 2012 ‘Queen of the Front Row’ donned a cute pink Prada Spring 2012 flame-print pleated dress. I love her quirky accessories which include a blue Prada Saffiano Lux Pyramid bag with studs and the Prada flame sandals in lemon, but that hair goes from bad to worse.

Kate Mara: The actress opted for a rich, warm berry Miu Miu look featuring a leather trend with jewel button, worn over a top with a black Peter Pan embellished collar and shorts to match. I’m not so crazy about the fuchsia-pink Miu Miu peep-toes – they feel a tad stark against the berry – but I do like the leather pochette.

Mia Wasikowska In Antonio Berardi – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Mia Wasikowska celebrated Oscar night in West Hollywood at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

The young actress was the first to wear an Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 look which was presented during London Fashion Week exactly seven days ago.

Her dark grey, sleeveless gown with an asymmetrical floral panel detail didn’t excite us as much as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s breath-taking redvBerardi gown.

That being said the gown is a perfect fit to Mia’s not fuss, minimal style.

A slight poufed up-do and barely there makeup finish the ensemble.

Mia Wasikowska In Miu Miu – ‘The Woman Dress’ by Giada Colagrande Screening

Mia Wasikowska joined Leighton Meester at a screening of ‘The Woman Dress,’ directed by Giada Colagrande, held in New York City on Tuesday evening.

As the face of Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2012, it makes perfect sense that Mia attended the screening of a film celebrating the brand in a beautiful Miu Miu dress.

Mia chose a navy silk taffeta key-hole sleeveless dress with a classic A-line skirt. The dress was accentuated with a green crystal encrusted collar and waistband.

This silhouette is unmistakably Miu Miu, and green and white crystal embellishment only makes it that much more special.

Strappy blue Miu Miu heels complete her BDOTW worthy look.

Mia hasn’t looked this amazing in since Cannes. Maybe she will be a worthy brand ambassador after all.

Mia Wasikowska In Miu Miu – 2012 AAVTA Awards

Mia Wasikowska joined fellow Aussies Miranda Kerr and Cate Blanchett on the red carpet for the 2012 AAVTA Awards in Sydney, Australia.

Sporting a rockabilly hairstyle, the actress wore a Miu Miu Spring 2012 dress.

The face of Miu Miu’s Spring 2012 ad campaign may look amazing in her shoot, but that quirky sensibility hasn’t translated quite so well on the red carpet.

This look doesn’t appeal to me at all.

Even with the bold red lip colour, she’s washed out by the rose pink and white of her dress.

The ankle strap shoes, which blend into her feet, were also an unfortunate choice.

I’m sure she will get another chance to redeem herself before her term is up.

Vanity Fair March 2012 Hollywood Issue

Vanity Fair’s March 2012 issue, which is the annual Hollywood Issue, features eleven of the most up-and-coming actresses who were shot by Mario Testino.

The main cover features Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain.

After the fold we have Elizabeth Olsen, Adepero Oduye, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins and Brit Marling.

There are always great debates that go on with regards to this cover every year.

I would’ve swapped Mia with Elizabeth and had her on the main cover, and I’m not sure Paula should be considered up-and-coming as she’s been around for a while. Also Shailene is totally unrecognisable.

Each actress wore a pastel-coloured satin dress for the 20s boudoir-themed shoot with screen-siren hairstyles and bold lip colours.

They all look great, but Jennifer steals the cover for me as she’s in full-on bombshell mode. Very Jessica Rabbit.

Here are some extracts from their interviews:

Jessica on her superstar crush:The English Patient. Of course. Those love scenes!”

Jennifer on who else she’s like to work with: “I’d love to work with the Cohen brothers. Tommy Lee Jones. Jack Nicholson. And I’d love to work with Renee Zellweger. I’m a huge Renee Zellweger fan.”

Rooney on her crush growing up: “Thom Yorke.”

Jennifer on her childhood crush: “When I was little, like 90s, era, I had such a big crush on Justin Timberlake from *NSYNC that I almost thew up.”
