Michelle Rodriguez In Vivienne Westwood – 2015 amfAR New York Gala

Michelle Rodriguez In Vivienne Westwood - 2015 amfAR New York Gala

Michelle Rodriguez attended the 2015 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 11) in New York City.

It’s very rare that I get to say the words wow and Michelle Rodriguez in the same sentence, but here you have it.

The ‘Fast and Furious’ star looked resplendent wearing a Vivienne Westwood white silk gown fitted and draped to create an ultra-feminine silhouette.

While I’m longing for a smaller, daintier clutch than the Kara Ross Gemmo clutch she selected, one can’t fault this look for its ladylike elegance.

On some this would be quite formulaic and expected, but on the biker jacket-, ripped tee- and jeans-loving actress, this is a goddamn miracle.

2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala Red Carpet Roundup

2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of a few of the other Gucci-clad stars and a few others who attended the 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala on Saturday (November 1) in Los Angeles.

Kate Beckinsale: Working an unfamiliar silhouette yet still oozing with glamour, the British actress wore a Gucci one-of-a-kind mauve gown featuring jewelled detailing, a high side slit and an open back. Swapping her favoured ponytail for a high bun, Kate styled her look with a Kotur clutch, Jack Vartanian diamond earrings and nude Gucci crystal-encrusted sandals.

Evan Rachel Wood: The face of Gucci’s Guilty fragrance wore a Gucci one-of-a-kind black long-sleeved gown infused with some gothic flavour via the lace inserts at the bodice and sleeves. A hypnotic rouge lip, black embellished Gucci heels and a black Gucci satin box clutch rounded out her look.

Toni Garrn: The model looked very statuesque wearing a pale-blue Gucci Cruise 2015 long-sleeved gown with silver crystal-embellished tubular detailing around the neckline. Letting the gown do all the talking, her hair and makeup were kept simple, with Gucci jewels adding a touch of sparkle.

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.
