Michelle-Monaghan-In-Elie-Saab-Pre-Fall 2015-Critics----Choice-Movie-Awards

Michelle Monaghan attended the 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium on Thursday (January 15) in Los Angeles, California.

Exuding glamour and embodying the label’s elegance, the actress, who’s usually all about colour, opted for a black Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2015 gown.

I love the alluring slits in the skirt, the fit of the bodice and the flawless makeup and styling, which included Jimmy Choo ‘Dory’ sandals.

Some might say this is muted by her standards, but I would say it’s beautiful and understated.

Michelle Monaghan In Jason Wu – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Michelle Monaghan In Jason Wu – 2015 Golden Globes

Michelle Monaghan attended the 2015 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 11) in Beverly Hills, California.

Maintaining her ever-classy Red Carpet reputation, the actress donned a sleek, Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2015 emerald beaded bias slip gown, coupled with Irene Neuwirth jewels.

The gown’s subdued metallic sheen and floor-length cut elongate Michelle’s frame and highlight her shape, allowing her to convey an aura of mystery and sexiness.

Normally, I am not a fan of thin-strapped dresses, but Michelle’s side swept locks anchor the neckline, detracting from the straps. Her smoky-eyed makeup acts as a perfect complement to her sultry yet glamorous look.

Michelle Monaghan In J. Mendel – Lynn Hirschberg Celebrates W’s It Girls

Michelle Monaghan In J Mendel - Lynn Hirschberg Celebrates W's It Girls

Michelle Monaghan attended Lynn Hirschberg Celebrates W’s It Girls held at A.O.C on Saturday (January 10) in Los Angeles, California.

Wearing a timelessly feminine piece that will stay in vogue for seasons, Michelle wore a J. Mendel light and airy printed silk chiffon short sleeve top and ruched skirt.

You weren’t too enamoured with her styling for her last look, but on this occasion I’m sure you will view her grey accessories, including a Nancy Gonzalez clutch, more favourably.

A slicked back do and a bold red lip rounded out this look.

The red lips and nails would’ve needed to have been toned down a tad for me to consider this a perfect look.

Michelle Monaghan In Giambattista Valli – W Magazine’s Golden Globes Celebration

Michelle Monaghan In Giambattista Valli - W Magazine’s Golden Globes Celebration

Michelle Monaghan attended the W Magazine celebration of the ‘Best Performances’ Portfolio and the Golden Globes held at the Chateau Marmont on Thursday (January 8) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Giambattista Valli Resort 2015 dress crafted with a cinched waist and voluminous elbow-length sleeves for ladylike appeal, with delicate red floral appliqués decorating the neckline.

Opting to supercharge the look with leopard-print Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps, the look was completed with a nude Louboutin clutch, a neat bun and barely there makeup.

I love the combo of the sweet dress and sultry pumps, but the clutch doesn’t quite work for me.

Most Underrated 2014 – Michelle Monaghan

Most Underrated 2014 - Michelle Monaghan

Michelle Monaghan isn’t often on the receiving end of rounds of applause for her fashion, and I still haven’t figured out just why. But, when looking back over her year, it’s indeed hard to fathom why she hasn’t made more of an impact.

Her style is worthy of nothing short of a standing ovation, with the actress constantly keeping us guessing with new silhouettes and dramatic statements that push the boundaries just enough while maintaining the delicate balance between trendy and tasteful.

The one constant among her list of looks is that they are universally impeccable—and always beautifully styled with complementary accessories and hair and makeup.

It seems as if she’s sophisticatedly debuted every designer of the alphabet this year—from Altuzarra to Zac Posen—with extra-memorable moments including her J. Mendel pink and white confection and that Simone Rocha red-hot frock, not to mention her impossibly chic, white Giambattista Valli Couture number from the 2014 Emmys.

She may be underrated, but her looks deserve a perfect 10.

Michelle Monaghan In Altuzarra – Napa Valley Film Festival Celebrity Tribute Night

Michelle Monaghan In Altuzarra - Napa Valley Film Festival Celebrity Tribute Night

Michelle Monaghan attended the Napa Valley Film Festival celebrity tribute night on Friday (November 14) in Napa, California.

Like the many ladies who attended the Hollywood Film Awards, the actress opted for winter white, selecting a striped blazer and skirt from Altuzarra’s Spring 2015 collection.

I love the simple cut and white and cream neutral hues which make this suit an ultra-chic feminine offering.

Styled with white Louboutin pumps, she opted to uplift her ensemble with a two-tone clutch while adding some warmth to the look with a pretty pink lip colour.

A Week In Michelle Monaghan’s Closet Wearing Lanvin, Sally LaPointe & Roksanda

A Week In Michelle Monaghan's Closet Wearing Lanvin, Sally LaPointe & Roksanda

It’s been another busy and stylish week on the red carpet for Michelle Monaghan, who attended three events in LA, showcasing three very different looks.

2014 Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards: On Sunday (November 9) the actress looked pretty, keeping the hair and makeup very simple and wearing a Lanvin Resort 2015 green cocktail dress with a tiered skirt styled with snakeskin Louboutins and a green and gold-tone Ferragamo clutch.

AFI Fest Special Tribute to Sophia Loren: Opting for a bold lip colour and wavy tresses, Michelle wore a Sally LaPointe Resort 2015 layered dress crafted from alligator skin for quite an unusual look – one perfectly styled with Christian Louboutin heels and a Lanvin clutch.

Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America – 10th Anniversary Heroes Gala: Last night (November 13) the actress made it a trio of gorgeous looks, this time wearing a Roksanda Fall 2014 felt and bonded jersey dress coat in a fitted A-line silhouette with short sleeves and geometric colour-block panels throughout. Caramel Louboutins with a colourful studded toecap, and a gold clutch rounded out this luxe fall look.

As the weather is less than summery this side of the pond, I find myself instantly gravitating towards the Roksanda look – that, plus its impeccable craftsmanship and autumnal hues.
