Michelle Rodriguez In Alberta Ferretti – 2014 amfAR New York Gala

Michelle Rodriguez In Alberta Ferretti - 2014 amfAR New York Gala

Michelle Rodriguez joined Jane Krakowski, Lily Alridge, Kelly Rowland and Gretchen Mol on the red carpet for the 2014 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 5) in New York City.

The ‘Fast and Furious’ actress can be very hit and miss on the red carpet (mostly the latter), but on this occasion she got the glamour memo as she wore a beautiful Alberta Ferretti gown.

Wonderfully complementary to her skin tone, the caramel-hued gown with a twisted waist was styled with a decorative Avakian necklace.

Was the necklace too much? I think it was.

Vin Diesel’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Unveiling

Vin Diesel Honored On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Vin Diesel was the star attraction on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California yesterday. Surrounded by a cast of his leading ladies, the ‘Fast & Furious’ actor received the high honour of his own Hollywood Boulevard star.

Katee Sackhoff: The ‘Riddick’ star actually wore her congratulatory bouquet, with her black Dolce & Gabbana shift dress, speckled with rows of rosy blooms, which she paired with strappy Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals.

Michelle Rodriguez: Going to new lengths, the actress glided around in an Alexander McQueen slate-grey maxi dress. While dramatic, the floor-scraping effect just translated as ill-fitting—and far too much fabric for the Walk of Fame.

Vin Diesel: Not only did the hunky actor get a star, he also earned a few style stripes with a dark pinstripe suit and partially unbuttoned shirt sans tie. Buff or boring?

Jordana Brewster: Perhaps the most event-appropriate, Jordana gave us another look at label-of-the-moment, Three Floor, with this flirty-cool ensemble. The sleeveless white Ann Taylor blouse and patterned zipper shorts with a flounce hem, which fully showed off her enviable bronzed pins, was styled with well-placed gold accessories and white ankle-cuff Pierre Hardy sandals that were a welcome reprieve to a black pump.

2013 Teen Choice Awards Red Carpet Round Up

Teen Choice Awards 1

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the 2013 Teen Choice Awards.

Anna Camp: The blonde beauty wore an Emilio Pucci powder-blue sequinned long-sleeved dress with lace and point d’esprit inserts and an open back, which she styled with silver Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps, vintage jewels, a Kotur clutch and a chic topknot. You may remember that Selena Gomez wore this in black back in March on Letterman.

Brittany Snow: Also working a lace frock, Brittany wore an Oliver Tolentino green floral lace dress with a nude underlay styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Vamp’ sandals, a coral Oroton clutch – which looks very heavy – and a matching lip colour, with a braided updo completing her look.

Joey King: The ‘White House Down’ actress opted for a pretty lime-green Moschino strapless printed dress with embellishments, styled with gold sandals and a subtle pendant necklace.

Who Wore Herve Leger Better…Michelle Williams or Michelle Rodriguez?

Who Wore Herve Leger Better Michelle Williams or Michelle Rodriguez

Last month, Michelle Williams attended the 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California, where she wore a black-and-white Herve Leger bandage gown.

The singer added black Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and a black clutch to her look.

Michelle Rodriguez wore the same gown in white-and-black while attending the ‘Fast & Furious 6’ Seoul premiere in South Korea on Monday.

The actress opted for a simpler approach, adding just a silver cuff to her look, with a beauty regime consisting of barely there makeup and naturally wavy tresses.

Both women look gorgeous; however, I’m going to give this win to Michelle Williams because I appreciate her efforts to go glam in this look.

Michelle Rodriguez In Jean Fares Couture – 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Michelle Rodriguez wowed me at the 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala during 2011 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

I make that twice in one year.

The actress seems to be taking the red carpet more seriously these days, which was perfectly showcased by her wearing this Jean Fares Couture gown tonight.

I love the pretty pink colour on her. I don’t think she’s ever worn anything this delicate.

The open back dress looks to be paying an homage to Celine Dion’s Oscar tuxedo don’t you think?

As well as having embellished pockets, the gown also has embellishments cascading down the back.

I have to say I love this effort from her, despite the gown being too long at the front.

Who Wore Basil Soda Better? Shy’m or Michelle Rodriguez

French pop singer Shy’m attended the NRJ Awards in Cannes back in January, looking stunning in this black architectural Basil Soda gown.

She let the gown do most of the talking with the rest of the focus being on her towering hairdo.

Some bracelets or a cocktail ring would have been a welcome addition, but since she looks so glamorous I’m willing to let that part go.

Shy’m must know how amazing she looks since she is seriously working it on the red carpet. It’s hard to find fault with this.

Michelle Rodriguez surprised us all by stepping out in the same dress for her “Battle: Los Angeles” LA Premiere

Usually favouring a more casual look on the red carpet, this was a huge step up for the actress, but it certainly wasn’t perfect.

Her necklace is too fussy for a dress with an asymmetrical neckline. Even though her hair looks gorgeous, I would have loved to see it pulled back to really let her beauty (and the gown) shine.

Michelle gets points for stepping out of her comfort zone and trying something new but the details – including a basic black clutch – are just all wrong.

Shy’m on the other hand gets it right by directing most of the attention to the dress and her hair. She owns the look and knows it.

Shy’m wins for me.
