Catherine Deneuve In Prada – ’3 Coeurs’ Venice Film Festival Photocall

Catherine Deneuve In Prada - '3 Coeurs' Venice Film Festival Photocall2
Catherine Deneuve attended the photo call for her film, ’3 Coeurs,’ as part of the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Saturday (August 30).

The screen icon left no pattern unturned in a Prada Resort 2015 dress that featured an intricately decorative and brightly hued floral print.

Having been stripped of many of its original runway bells and whistles, including the label’s signature embellishment and eclectic styling, the frock had a more sophisticated and less quirky, but also less interesting, edge.

Jade-green earrings and black Saint Laurent ‘Tribtoo’ platform sandals completed the look.

Another more delicate and less imposing shoe might have made all the difference, here, as this pair was far too heavy—and frankly rather twee—for all that print.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier, Emma Stone In Valentino Couture, Allison Williams In Giambattista Valli Couture & Nikolaj Coster-Waldau In Salvatore Ferragamo

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier, Emma Stone In Valentino Couture

It was a week where glamour came back to the red carpet, with the Emmy Awards and the Venice Film Festival, and it’s from those two events that you couldn’t separate your favourites.

Lizzy Caplan swept you away in her Donna Karan Atelier black and white gown and Emma Stone was breathtaking making her return to the red carpet with a new ‘do in Valentino Couture.

I, on the other hand, had narrowed my favourites down to four. After much deliberation I picked Allison Williams in her enchanting Giambattista Valli Couture gown, which may have been too princessey for some, but this look swept me away.

There were many fine gents in suits this week. Mostly all black, so how do you pick them apart?

By the impeccable tailoring, slight detailing – such as contrasting buttons, a pocket square and straight bow tie – and of course devilishly good looks play their part, so up steps Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Salvatore Ferragamo to collect his prize for the win.

Get The Look: Kelly Rowland’s MTV Video Music Awards Mani

Get The Look Kelly Rowland’s MTV Video Music Awards Mani

It’s obvious to see that Kelly Rowland is having fun with her pregnancy when she took to the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. I love how her artsy nails complemented her braided halo and sparkling Kaufmanfranco gown.

Celebrity manicurist, Sarah Bland-Barbuto, who has worked with Kelly on several occasions, created a design for Kelly called the half-moon mani.

A small area of the nail around the cuticle is lined in one color and it resembles the shape of a half moon. The glitter that is used is from Sarah’s own line Artiglio. The glitter is cosmetic grade glitter that is specifically made for use in manicures.

Sarah says to start with the gold polish first. She used Nail Labo Presto Gel #155 on Kelly.

Follow by applying the nude Nail Labo Presto Gel #63 with a round brush. The gel polish prevents chips and will help prolong the life your manicure.

‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7 – #8′ Venice Film Festival Premiere

'Miu Miu Women's Tales #7 - #8' - Premiere - 71st Venice Film Festival

A collection of six starlets were at the ‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7-#8’ premiere, held during the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Thursday (August 28). Naturally, all were representing the label, donning a range of Miu Miu looks that couldn’t have each been more different if they tried.

Dakota Fanning: The trendsetting starlet wore a Miu Miu creamy white satin sheath dress with beaded embellishment, paired with nude platform Miu Miu pumps and a bejeweled grass-green Miu Miu clutch. I would have loved to see the same punch of colour in her shoe, along with an updo.

Kirsten Dunst: The actress went for a retro spin in an A-line Miu Miu dress featuring a funky blue and white swirl print. She accessorized with pops of silver via her clutch and sandals, not to mention the flash of those side-swept platinum locks.

Kate Mara: Donning the same nude platforms as Dakota, Kate wore hers with a nude Miu Miu dress with allover paillettes and a sparkling, decorative neckline. The design was pretty and carried with it a vintage flair, but the colour washed out her complexion, especially with her neutral makeup.

Felicity Jones: Her embellished, midnight-blue Miu Miu dress with sheer sleeves had the fall season written all over it. Black pointy pumps did nothing to lighten the look, but the actress did take a more summery, breezy approach to her barely-there makeup.

Lena Dunham: Once again opting for a head-scratcher of a look, the ‘Girls’ star didn’t exactly stand out for the right reasons in her sombre, daresay frumpy, patterned frock. The Prada dress and the flat, block-heel sandals aged her far beyond my liking—as did her beehive ’do.

Nicoletta Romanoff: The only one to really embrace what’s left of summer, Nicoletta was the most polished of the bunch in her flirty and youthful white ruffle blouse and lemon-yellow skirt by Miu Miu, paired with breezy waves and sun-kissed makeup. If I were to nitpick, I would have selected a colourful, fun sandal not this chunkier brown pair.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Alberta Ferretti – ‘La Rancon De La Gloire’ Premiere

Alessandra Ambrosio In Alberta Ferretti - 'La Rancon De La Gloire' Premiere

Alessandra Ambrosio took to the red carpet at the 2014 Venice Film Festival for the ‘La Rancon De La Gloire’ premiere in Venice, Italy on Thursday (August 28).

The supermodel strutted out a cherry-hued Alberta Ferretti high-low gown that carried with it some element of laidback grace, elevated by a sparkling Chopard collar necklace.

The Brazilian stunner can work any ensemble to her advantage, but this one didn’t necessarily lend many favours with its folded, flattened bodice.

The rich colour had me at hello; but I could have easily said goodbye to the silhouette, fabrication and those Salvatore Ferragamo black pumps.
