Michelle Dockery and Freida Pinto In Miu Miu – Miu Miu Women’s Tales Talks Venice Film Festival Photocall

Miu Miu Women's Tales Talks - The 70th Venice International Film Festival

Michelle Dockery and Freida Pinto attended the Miu Miu Women’s Tales Talks photocall held at Excelsior Hotel on Saturday in Venice, Italy – with both ladies wearing Miu Miu, naturally.

Michelle Dockery: The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore a sombre navy sheer top and a black floaty skirt with black-patent pumps, which for me is not getting into the festival spirit especially when we are nearing the end of summer. Even with the red pout, I am totally bored by this look. She could’ve lifted it with some interesting jewels or a statement necklace, but no.

Freida Pinto: After failing to excite at the premiere last week, Freida was back to her best, looking lovely wearing a summery Miu Miu white-and-pink tie-dye sleeveless shirtdress styled with nude pumps with an embellished heel and a shimmering taupe lip colour. While this is much improved, I’m sad that we didn’t get a more glamorous moment from Freida at this festival.

Freida Pinto, Carey Mulligan, Michelle Dockery & Gabrielle Union In Miu Miu – Miu Miu Women’s Tales

Several celebs attended the Miu Miu Women’s Tales screening during the 2013 Venice International Film Festival in Italy this afternoon.

Freida Pinto: I’m usually a big fan of Freida’s style, but this bright-red Miu Miu dress with a black button panel with a zipper detail …dare I say… looks very cheap and the whole thing reads sloppy to me. Very disappointed.

Carey Mulligan: Even though I am not a fan of sunglasses on the red carpet, Carey fared much better wearing a simple black silk Miu Miu frock with a white Peter Pan collar, which is the second look which has a back-to-school vibe I have seen this week.

Michelle Dockery: Also opting for red, the British actress wore a Miu Miu silk crepe-de-chine loose-fit mini dress with two front patch pockets. I am picturing her shuffling along the red carpet, because those black pumps look so heavy. I’m also not a fan of the clutch; it feels like it is there just for advertising purposes as it also doesn’t complement her frock.

Gabrielle Union: The beautiful actress graced the red carpet wearing a floaty sheer black Miu MIu dress with a red velvet panel which has an autumnal feel that I can’t get excited about.

In summary, with the exception of Carey, none of these looks is working for me. I can find fault with each look.

PBS History’s ‘Downton Abbey’ Season 4 Photocall

PBS History's 'Downton Abbey' Season 4 Photocall

The cast of ‘Downton Abbey’ attended a photocall hosted by PBS History for Season 4 held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday afternoon.

Michelle Dockery: Opting for chic separates, Michelle wore a black-and-beige Elie Saab Resort 2013 short set with a black Ann Taylor top. She styled her look with Jean-Michel Cazabat ‘Ella’ black pumps, adding a pop of colour via her red lips.

Laura Carmichael: Admittedly, Laura rarely catches my eye; however, I was charmed by her whimsical Moschino Cheap and Chic black mini dress trimmed with an ivory satin box-pleat ‘piano keys’ accented hemline.

Joanne Froggatt: Sporting blonde, beachy, wavy tresses, the British actress, who has always been a fan of prints and colour, wore a Camilla & Marc Fall 2013 look. Her black top with a cobalt-blue trim was tucked into a dual-print blue-and-berry flounced skirt, to which she opted not to add the belt it was presented with. Her simple styling included silver bracelets and black pumps. Should she have kept the belt?

Sophie McShera: Looking delighted to be out of her 1920s maid outfit, the young actress wore a pretty floral Zara frock with an ultimate ladylike fit. This elegant dress is right on trend, with nude pumps and a orange-red lip colour completing the effortless styling.

Michelle Dockery In Roland Mouret – An Evening With ‘Downton Abbey’

Michelle Dockery In Roland Mouret - An Evening With 'Downton Abbey'

On the night of the 2013 Critics’ Choice Awards, Michelle Dockery had her own red carpet to attend to at An Evening with ‘Downton Abbey,’ hosted on Monday at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood, California.

The British actress went for a simple and sophisticated approach, wearing a sleeveless Roland Mouret silk crepe ‘Daroda’ dress in a sublime shade of deep purple.

The slim-fitting frock featured the designer’s signature asymmetric neckline with folded angular details, along with a full zipper at the back.

The straightforward styling continued with a pair of black ‘Elba’ pumps by Rubert Sanderson, along with her effortless side-swept bob.

Not wanting to forgo a touch of flash, Michelle added some Art Deco-inspired pop with her metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ envelope clutch.

Michelle Dockery In Burberry – 2013 Met Gala

Michelle Dockery walked the famous red carpet stairs at the Met Gala in New York on Monday.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore a Burberry sheath dress.

I love this look: the inky hue and croc-embossed texture is perfection in a classic cut and topped with a mega statement necklace.

While it doesn’t read ‘punk’ to me at all, it’s one of my top styles of the night. Classic-meets-edgy, and all around beutiful.

Where do you stand? Yay or nay?

Michelle Dockery In Elie Saab – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Michelle Dockery In Elie Saab - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association

Michelle Dockery brought some British flair to the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday night in Washington, D.C.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress showed us our highly anticipated second glance at Elie Saab’s Fall 2013 collection, after Jessica Biel debuted it at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball.

This violet-purple peplum gown with sheer chiffon inlay is another example of a sequin- and bead-free moment from the bling-loving designer. Not that the look was completely shine-free, as metallic bangles and a clutch played nicely with the sculpted belt.

Michelle wore the dress well, although this is a look that’s made for walking, as I missed the magic of the gown’s runway movement.

A glam updo and a hot-fuchsia glossed pout finished the story, although with this ultra-violet colour, I would have liked to have seen a slightly more neutral lippie.
