‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ London Photocall

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" - Photocall

Julianne Moore, Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks and Natalie Dormer attended the photocall for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ held at the Corinthia Hotel London on Sunday (November 9) in London, England ahead of Monday’s world premiere.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for, but sadly Jena Malone wasn’t in attendance as she was at the EMAs.

Julianne Moore: The actress more than held her own in this quartet wearing a Dries van Noten dress which champions the brand’s retro-modern aesthetic with contrast prints and a relaxed-fit design. Sadly, all the good work is undone with those grey Aquazzura black suede Sexy Thing booties.

Jennifer Lawrence: While tomorrow will most definitely be a Dior night, Jennifer wore her second non-Dior look in a row, donning a white suit from much-buzzed-about new brand Public School. Styled with a black cami top and silver pumps, this is another good look for Jennifer.

Elizabeth Banks: Withdrawing from her Alexander McQueen account early, the actress wore a bold fuchsia frock rendered with a striking contrasting animal and ikat print in a very short design. I usually want to high-five her footwear choices, but I’m not a fan of the Jimmy Choo ‘Vanish’ ankle boots, although I do love the colour.

Natalie Dormer: The British actress usually gives me plenty to shout about, but on this occasion I feel like she hit the mute button. While there is nothing wrong with this Michael Van Der Ham Spring 2015 look, she’s usually oozing with a lot more colour and character.

Natalie Dormer In House of Holland – Extremely Piaget Launch Event

Natalie Dormer In House of Holland - Extremely Piaget Launch Event

Natalie Dormer attended the Extremely Piaget launch event on Thursday (October 9) in Beverly Hills, California.

The British actress wore a quirky British brand, donning a short-sleeved below-the-knee dress from House of Holland’s Resort 2015 collection.

I love how the colourful zebra print adds a wild and cool graphic to this semi-casual ensemble, which she polishes with Jimmy Choo strappy sandals, a Lulu Guinness classic perspex lips clutch and, of course, a Piaget timepiece.

Christian Dior Spring 2015 Front Row

Christian Dior Spring 2015 Front Row

The Christian Dior front row is one I always look forward to during fashion week; however, on this occasion I was somewhat underwhelmed by the looks the ladies were displaying this afternoon (September 26) in Paris, France.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress and Dior ambassador kept her look uber-simple wearing a chic LBD with cobalt-blue velvet ankle boots. I don’t by any means dislike the look, but as always I want just a little bit more from Marion.

Olivia Palermo: The only person who piqued my interest was Olivia. If anyone can spark some life into an LBD it’s her. Her double-breasted coat dress with sheer sleeves was accented with a Dior Resort 2014 scarf, dual-colour Dior bag and a her favourite Jimmy Choo ‘Dream’ tassel-accented sandals.

Dakota Fanning: Wearing a black Dior Couture dress, the black accessories I don’t mind, but I couldn’t help but wish for a pop of colour to the lips or a new hairdo (as always) from Dakota.

Natalie Dormer In Emilio Pucci – 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards

Natalie Dormer In Emilio Pucci - 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards
Natalie Dormer was also on the red carpet for the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards, held in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2).

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress wasn’t hard to spot in her bright marigold keyhole dress, modified from the design that took to the Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 runway, which had me temporarily missing the liquid draping of the long gown.

But this little number was all about the retro glitz, accessorized with black strappy sandals, a black and gold hardware clutch, and the requisite kohl-lined cat eye.

With those bouncy bombshell curls, I nearly forgot about her half-shaven ‘Hunger Games’ ’do.

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting: The New Nude Lip

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting The New Nude Lip

This isn’t the traditional nude that camouflages your lips, making them unnoticeable. The new nude lips actually accentuate the natural tones of your skin allowing lips to pop in the subtlest way. Take cue from Julia Roberts, Kerry Washington, Lizzy Caplan, and Natalie Dorimer who were amongst the many celebs that flaunted the updated au naturel trend on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Carole Gonzalez balanced Kerry Washington’s navy smokey eye with an updated nude lip. Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Warm Caramel was used to make her neutral pout pop. The shimmering shade provides sheer wash of color and is ideal for complexions with warm undertones. When choosing a nude it’s important to pay attention to your skin’s undertones.

Los Angeles based celebrity makeup artist, Jake Bailey played up the flesh tones on Natalie Dorimer. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide- On Lip Pencil in Naked was used to line her lips. You can even make more room in your clutch and leave this one at home. This waterproof liner will get you through the entire evening. It also doubles as a primer to prep lips for lipstick or a gloss.

Bailey topped off Dorimer’s look with L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance. This shade works well on those who have cool undertones and it won’t leave lips feeling dry like other stains.
