Soul Train Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

On Friday night many more stars joined Jennifer Hudson on the red carpet for the Soul Train Awards 2013, held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Toni Braxton: The singer donned a nude Amato Fall 2013 Couture sleeveless lace gown; keeping the look minimalistic by adding stud earrings and a ring. A berry matte lip and signature pixie crop hairstyle completed her look.

Janelle Monae: It was black-and-white once again for the singer who worked an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 Couture look featuring a white blouse with a high pony collar, a black jacket and white ankle length pants. Jimmy Choo ‘Fey’ sandals, a DVF ‘Lytton’ zebra stripe clutch and her signature red pout pompadour hairdo provided the finishing touches.

‘The Best Man Holiday’ LA Premiere

'The Best Man Holiday' LA Premiere

Universal Pictures premiered ‘The Best Man Holiday’ at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

Sanaa Lathan: The actress looked uber sexy wearing a Donna Karan black strapless frock with a part-ruffled neckline and maroon draped details held together with a black waistband. Le Vian & Demarco jewels and Stuart Weitzman black pumps completed the look. I love the complementary maroon lip colour.

Michelle Williams: Continuing to work that punchy pink lip, the singer wore a simple black Michael Costello halter dress, which she styled with a gold chain belt.

Melissa De Sousa: Since the movie has a holiday theme, the actress sparkled like tinsel on a Christmas tree, wearing a blue-and-black Pamella Roland strapless gown with a chiffon train styled with Brian Atwood shoes, Le Vian jewels and a Lauren Merkin clutch.

Black Girls Rock! 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

Black Girls Rock! 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a round up to the rest of the looks from the Black Girls Rock! event, which was held at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, October 26, 2013 to honour legendary singer Patti Labelle.

Kelly Rowland: The singer is never one to shy away from a (strategically) revealing ensemble, and with this Alon Livne Fall 2013 jumpsuit, you get just that. The embellishments and half-sleeves on top gave way to a sheer pant silhouette on bottom. To finish, she wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.

Tatyana Ali: The actress went the glamorous route in a white Michael Costello fishtail gown, which boasted a dramatic rosette detail at the shoulder, a subtle geometric cutout at the midriff, and a metal-plated B-Low the Belt ‘Vanity’ belt at the waist. Her look was completed with a soft updo, red lips, and Erickson Beamon jewelry.

Keke Palmer: Opting for something elegant and just a little bit celestial, the actress wore a black sparkle Novis ‘Dovima’ gown. Her loose curls, flawless make-up, and minimal accessories were the appropriate complement to such an eye-catching dress.

Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton – 2013 Whitney Gala

Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton - 2013 Whitney Gala

Joining Dianna Agron and Alexa Chung on the red carpet for the Louis Vuitton 2013 Whitney Gala held at Skylight at Moynihan Station in New York City yesterday evening, Michelle Williams opted for a head-to-toe all-black LV look.

Dressed in a pretty tiered LV LBD with bow accents, the look was styled with a satin clutch and peep-toes, with just a pop of red to the lips.

Simple often works best but, while this is pretty and polished, I feel totally underwhelmed.

Michelle Williams In Gucci – 2013 Skin Cancer Foundation Gala

Michelle Williams In Gucci - 2013 Skin Cancer Foundation Gala

Michelle Williams attended the 2013 Skin Cancer Foundation Gala held at The Plaza Hotel in New York City yesterday evening.

The singer donned a sexy LBD from Gucci’s Fall 2013 collection with a black lace fern yoke, which she styled with an even sexier pair of star-embellished Giuseppe Zanotti black sandals.

As you know, I’m always on bra-reveal watch. On this occasion it could pass off as part of her dress so I don’t find it intrusive, nor does it put me off the look. That could also be because I am distracted by that daring side slit.

You may remember that Jessica Chastain wore the same dress back in June; she possibly wore a modified version, as the slit wasn’t so pronounced.

Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton – The New Yorker Festival 2013: ‘In Conversation’ With Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton - The New Yorker Festival 2013 'In Conversation' With Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams was the featured guest at The New Yorker Festival 2013’s ‘In Conversation’ event, where she spoke with writer David Denby at New York City’s SVA Theater 1 on Saturday.

The actress combined cutesy and classic with her structured Louis Vuitton short-sleeve, shirt-dress, which featured a black-and-white checquered print detail and a bow at the waist.

She kept the styling simple, opting for a pair of black pumps, with no visible jewels and only minimal makeup to complement the frock.

The hint of a pink lip did perk up the look, with her blonde quiff adding the most intriguing edge. I’m sure the conversation was plenty interesting, too.

‘Baggage Claim’ LA Premiere

'Baggage Claim' LA Premiere

‘Baggage Claim’ premiered at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California yesterday evening.

Paula Patton: The actress who consistently has more misses than hits donned a sheer Rhea Costa Fall 2013 frock with strategically placed embroidery for her red carpet look. She looks beautiful, but her boobs are squished in the dress; plus, considering what everyone else was wearing to this event, Paula appeared to be overdressed.

La La Anthony: The starlet managed to find the right balance of looking sexy yet not overcooked like Paula, wearing an LWD with lace detailing accenting the cut-outs. Silver shoes, a selection of silver jewels and graphic nail art completed her look.

Michelle Williams: The former Destiny’s Child singer is my best dressed here. Barring the black pumps, I would wear this entire look. Every piece works well together; the look doesn’t scream ‘try hard’ or ‘look at me’, yet she looks sexy and confident, plus that pink lip is divine.

Michelle Williams For Louis Vuitton

louis-vuitton-michelle-williams-02

Michelle Williams was captured by Peter Lindbergh for Louis Vuitton’s latest campaign highlighting their new bags – the ‘W’ and the ‘Capucines’ – wearing a look from the fashion house’s Fall 2013 collection.

The pretty blonde actress was given a dramatic makeover by hairstylist Sam McKnight and makeup artist Stéphane Marais, who gave her pixie crop a spiky twist and brought out her delicate features with dark eyes and a bold blood-red lip colour.

Michelle is no stranger to wearing Louis Vuitton on the red carpet; the red strapless LV gown she wore to the 2012 Oscars is the most notable.

Look out for this campaign, which is due to break in September.
