Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

Black and White Celebrity Trend

What’s black and white and seated front row at Paris fashion week?

Celebs, of course.

One of the major trends which reigned supreme at the Spring 2013 shows was black and white, ranging from mod 60s looks at Prada and Louis Vuitton, stripes at Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors, and classic pieces at Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Saint Laurent, with Alexander Wang, Balmain, Narciso Rodriguez, Victoria Beckham, Jil Sander, and Moschino also sending solid, patterned or striped black-and-white looks down the runway.

The celebs who have championed this trend this week were Nicole Richie, who attended both the Stella McCartney and Givenchy shows in black and white, and Jessica Alba, who also rocked the trend at Stella McCartney and Valentino.

Black and White Celebrity Trend2

Chanel’s front row is one place we shouldn’t be surprised to see celebs showcasing this Spring 2013 trend. The elegant Jessica Chastain wore a white ruffled blouse with a pencil skirt, while Milla Jovovich rocked a masculine black-and-white pant look.

Usually one to start trends, Anna Dello Russo also took to the front row at Chanel wearing a playful black-and-white look, which would’ve been better suited to Elle Fanning, methinks.

The best thing about this trend is that it’s easy to wear and affordable. You can rock it with the simplest staples, like vest tops, tees, skirts, pants and dresses.

Stripes might be the hardest look to rock; take it too far and you could end up looking like you are wearing prison stripes.

Milla Jovovich took to the red carpet at Cipriani 42nd Street to attend the 2012 DreamBall Gala in New York City yesterday evening.

The ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ actress glided down the red carpet wearing an Armani Privé Spring 2012 gown.

Her silk strapless gown with a fitted bodice and voluminous skirt may be from the Spring 2012 collection, but the silver, green and black abstract reptilian-print gown is perfect for Fall.

A big gown needs a big personality and Milla is just the woman for the job.

She styled her look with green chain-accented earrings (which cheapen the look) and a black satin clutch.

Wavy side-swept locks and a shimmering nude lip colour completed her look.

Milla Jovovich was spotted in Moscow last night for the ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ premiere.

The actress and model chose a strapless Reem Acra dress for the event.

I’m torn. Although the fit is beautiful, the print is either awesome or what happens when you mix up a Jackson Pollock with a dog’s dinner.

The accessories are great on their own – I especially like the Edie Parker clutch – but I’m not sure they should all be put together.

The necklace is fighting a battle with the dress – and losing. Perhaps just the earrings and the dress would’ve been just right? Meanwhile, the toe-peep platforms look more picnic in the park than film premiere.

The soft curls and pretty berry lip completed the look.

Milla Jovovich attended the world premiere of her latest movie ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’, held at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo, Japan, yesterday evening.

The actress donned a figure-hugging ERIN by Erin Fetherston Fall 2012 bandage dress with an oversized rose brocade bow accent.

Her YSL ‘Tribute’ pumps are a bit of a snooze, but she makes up for it by carrying a standout gold embellished Prada clutch and a bold red lip colour.

Styling her hair into her signature flipped ‘do, Milla completed her look with some sparkly statement jewels.

Do you like this look…or do you find it too tame for the usually extravagant actress?
