Naomie Harris In Donna Karan Atelier – ‘Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom’ Johannesburg Premiere

Naomie Harris In Donna Karan Atelier - 'Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom' Johannesburg Premiere

Naomie Harris attended the premiere of ‘Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom’ in Johannesburg on Sunday.

Largely based on his autobiography of the same name, the movie traces the life of the anti-apartheid icon from his childhood in the rural Eastern Cape to his election as the country’s first black president in 1994. Naomie stars as Nelson Mandela’s wife, Winnie Mandela.

Naomie wore a Donna Karan Atelier gown, which was a breathtaking sight to behold.

Her one-shoulder gown of draped white silk-gauze over gold silk-lamé features an exposed underskirt in silk-tulle. Both the necklace and skirt are embellished with antique-gold metal embroidery, which really brings this look alive.

I wish there was a better picture. I was going to say that this look is on a par with the other Donna Karan Atelier gown she wore to the Met Gala this year, but I now think this supersedes it.

Naomie Harris In Calvin Klein – ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Naomie Harris In Calvin Klein - ELLE's 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Naomie Harris attended ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening as an honouree alongside Marion Cotillard and Reese Witherspoon who were also honoured at the event.

The British actress, who was front row at Calvin Klein’s Spring 2014 show, wore an ivory-and-black mesh-threaded cocktail dress with fringed layers and a square neckline from the same collection.

It’s quite an unusual, shapeless dress, yet I find myself being totally charmed by it. That could have a lot to do with Naomie’s effortless styling and flawless makeup.

Naomie Harris In Peter Pilotto – Harper’s Bazaar LFW Closing Party

Naomie Harris In Peter Pilotto - Harper's Bazaar LFW Closing Party

On a cold and miserable evening, Naomie Harris lit up the sidewalk while making her way to the Harper’s Bazaar LFW closing party held at Annabel’s in London yesterday.

The British actress wore a striking Peter Pilotto Resort 2014 printed dress featuring an A-line waist and an inverted pleat with a contrast gusset at the front.

Nothing was going to upstage this beautiful dress; her accessories, which included a Charlotte Olympia plexi clutch with a black pouch and slate-grey Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Plato’ pumps, were the perfect accompaniments.

The dress was originally presented strapless, but I prefer the sportier vibe her dress is given with the halter shallow V-neckline.

Front Row @ Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

Burberry Front Row

Burberry Prorsum’s pretty, English rose-themed Spring 2014 collection debuted today at Kensington Gardens during London Fashion Week. There were plenty of PYTs, and even a particular One Direction boy, who crowded the front row for the cheerful runway action.

Sienna Miller: Fully embracing the fall season, the Burberry-clad actress, who appears in the label’s Fall 2013 campaign, showed us how the midriff trend might transition to colder temps.  Her fuzzy, forest-green cropped jacket was matched to the slimmer silhouette of a classic pencil skirt in a similar tonal shade. Embellished sandals and a baby-blue clutch didn’t fit in as seamlessly as I would have liked.

Naomie Harris: Sleek and effortless, the actress wore a buttery-yellow sheath dress from the Burberry Resort 2014 collection. Accessorizing with black ankle-strap sandals and a mini-clutch, along with straight locks, she proved that simple is sometimes best.

Paloma Faith: The British singer-songwriter paid homage to the Burberry label with her Fall 2013 goldenrod trench and rubberized skirt, which she paired with a mahogany pumps and studded bag. Of course, all eyes were also on her flame-red curls, which always add an exclamation point to each of her outings.

Nicole Kidman Calvin Klein Spring 2014 Show & After-Party

Calvin Klein presented their Spring 2014 show during New York Fashion Week yesterday evening, inviting Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, Naomie Harris and Alexander Skarsgard. The stars also joined Francisco Costa at the after-party to celebrate his 10 years as women’s Creative Director and the new ‘Downtown’ fragrance.

Nicole Kidman

Show: The Australian actress looked very sophisticated wearing a brand-typical minimalist chic blush sheath dress accented with a gold belt, with stunning earrings, a gold Omega watch and tri-coloured pumps accessorizing the look and preventing it from feeling too one-note.

After-Party: Although the silhouette is the same, her two-piece black look was spiced up with a statement bracelet, red sandals with a pom-pom accent and a wavy bob.
