Met Gala 2013 Roundup

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.

Olivia Wilde In MaxMara – Whitney Museum Art Party

Olivia Wilde In MaxMara - Whitney Museum Art Party

Olivia Wilde attended the Whitney Museum Art Party held at Skylight at Moynihan Station in New York City on Wednesday evening.

The actress wore a Max Mara printed silk-chiffon long-sleeved green dress, which she styled with Stuart Weitzman ‘Latenite’ sandals, a House of Lavande vintage necklace, Iwona Ludyga earrings and an Anya Hindmarch ‘Duchess’ clutch.

Her look was perfectly styled with standout accessories including her necklace and her structured clutch, which had a printed silk-screen image of a duchess, a shagreen front detail and a gold trim.

Both are great conversation starters at these kinds of parties.

Centre-parted wavy ombre locks, kohl-rimmed eyes and nude glossy lips put the finishing touches to her look.

Olivia Wilde In Monique Lhuillier – Marie Claire Honors Olivia Wilde And Her April Cover

Olivia Wilde In Monique Lhuillier - Marie Claire Honors Olivia Wilde And Her April Cover

Marie Claire held a party to celebrate Olivia Wilde and her April cover in New York City yesterday evening.

I’m going to hold my own personal celebration because Olivia is finally wearing a colour other than black.

Digging deep into her spring closet, the actress wore a fruitful Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 frock.

Her yellow-and-white printed knee-length dress with a fitted bodice and flared skirt was styled with the ever-popular Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals in bronze and drop earrings.

In total contrast to her look, she opted for ocean-blue eye makeup with a soft nude lip colour.

An elegant updo completed her look. Here’s hoping Olivia reaches for the more colourful side of her closet in future.

Olivia Wilde In Hervé Léger By Max Azria – The Tonight Show With Jay Leno

Olivia Wilde In Hervé Léger By Max Azria - The Tonight Show With Jay Leno

Olivia Wilde continued to promote her latest movie, ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’, with a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’, which is taped in Burbank, California.

You may be surprised to discover that the actress is wearing a Herve Leger by Max Azria Fall 2013 frock.

I say surprised because her sleek dove-grey dress with a black swirl pattern isn’t the image that would immediately pop into our minds when we think of a Herve Leger dress.

While it is fitted on the top, the ladylike dress has a flared skirt.

Adding a belt was a great idea, as was adding a pop of colour to the look via her Giuseppe Zanotti red pumps.

Olivia Wilde In Gucci – ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ LA Premiere

Olivia Wilde In Gucci - ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ LA Premiere

Olivia Wilde took to the red carpet with her co-stars for the LA premiere of ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’, held at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California.

It’s been a long time coming but I love this Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 frock.

My criticism is that I often feel that she doesn’t appear to try that hard, selecting matronly, bland looks, but this shimmering black gown with a netted overlay, embroidered neckline and open back was anything but – in fact, this is my favourite look from her in a long while.

Sexy, effortless and perfectly styled, Olivia selected Charlotte Olympia platform heels and jewels by Rona Pfeiffer and EF Collection to accessorize her look.

Wavy tresses and smoky eyes provided the finishing touches.

I would even say this is a BDOTW contender. What a difference a day makes.

Olivia Wilde In L’Wren Scott – ‘Drinking Buddies’ 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival Premiere

Olivia Wilde In L'Wren Scott - 'Drinking Buddies' 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival Premiere

Olivia Wilde was back on the red carpet during the 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival for the ‘Drinking Buddies’ premiere held at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas with co-star Anna Kendrick.

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse style-wise for Olivia, she goes and presents us with this look.

She wore a L’Wren Scott Resort 2013 printed dress with a pointy black collar, cuffs and faux flap pockets, which she styled with Sergio Rossi’s ‘Cachet’ pumps and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

From wearing a Dolce & Gabbana sundress on Friday, she ages about 30 years on Saturday. I’m not sure if it’s the dress, the styling or that faux bob which is the main factor, but overall I don’t like anything about this look. It’s just so bland.

Had SJP – a L’Wren Scott devotee – worn this, I’m sure the results wouldn’t have been anywhere near as dull as this look.

At this point, I am hoping this promo tour for both her latest flicks will be over very soon, or improve her look drastically.

Olivia Wilde In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival Screening

Olivia Wilde In Dolce & Gabbana - ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival Screening

Olivia Wilde attended the screening of her latest flick, ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’, which took place during the 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival held at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas on Friday.

The actress wore an on-trend black-and-white Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 floral-embroidered striped dress.

She accessorized with black Jimmy Choo sandals and Irene Neuwirth jewels, with side-parted wavy ombre locks, kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude lip colour providing the finishing touches.

The dress isn’t half bad. On the runway the fabulously feminine silhouette has a fresh appeal, but I am totally underwhelmed by it as the whole look is lacking some ‘oomph’ on Olivia.

Maybe I am still longing for the Olivia Wilde who once upstaged every A-List actress in her stunning Marchesa gown at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards, or maybe the look just needed a pop of colour.

Front Row @ Calvin Klein Fall 2013

Front Row at Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein presented their Fall 2013 collection on the last day of New York Fashion Week yesterday afternoon.

Jessica Chastain: The actress, who wore a Calvin Klein dress to the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, wore a rust wool dress with a three-dimensional side panel and exposed stitching throughout; the frock was accented with a black belt, and the colour really complemented her flame-coloured locks. Burgundy pumps completed her CK look.

Olivia Wilde: On occasion, we tend to find ourselves disappointed with Olivia’s red carpet look as we always want more. From the ankles up, her Calvin Klein Spring 2013 front-row look was delightful. The black strapless dress with a web-like blue overlay was also accented with a leather belt. The face of Revlon opted for silvery eye makeup, nude lips and a simple ponytail. With regards to the shoes, they feel very heavy for her look – almost like she’s carrying two bricks around her ankles. A Iwona Ludyga bracelet completed her look.
