Emma Watson In Christian Dior & BOSS – HeForShe Campaign Launch & After-Party

Emma Watson In Christian Dior & BOSS - HeForShe Campaign Launch & After-Party

Emma Watson attended two events on Saturday (September 20) for the HeForShe campaign held at the United Nations in New York City following her appointment as UN Women Goodwill Ambassador.

If I were Emma, when picking out my looks for these events I would’ve been thinking, what would fellow UN ambassador Angelina Jolie do? Tailored, conservative, muted colours and non-revealing.

Emma did all those things, adding chic into the equation.

HeForShe Campaign Launch: The first look was a Dior Resort 2015 heather-grey silk coat dress accented with a Dior silver-metal belt. The asymmetrical hemline adds a modern feel to the classic look, with the impeccable tailoring giving the piece a couture-like feel. Simple black Jimmy Choo ‘Abel’ pumps and Eva Fehren jewels completed her look.

HeForShe VIP After-Party: It may have been a party, but Emma’s look stayed strictly conservative. At first glance this is a classic BOSS LBD; however, the modern elements included a sheer back and skirt for adding subtle allure. The lip was a deep shade of red, with an M2Malletier green clutch also adding a pop of colour. The look was completed with Jimmy Choo ‘Abel’ pumps and a Jennifer Fisher gold choker.

I love how she managed to keep both looks interesting while still event appropriate.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta, Abigail Spencer In Paule Ka & David Gandy In Marks & Spencer

Best Dressed Of The Week - Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta, Abigail Spencer In Paule Ka & David Gandy In Marks & Spencer

Emmy Rossum was your best dressed this week wearing a gorgeous strapless tiered Oscar de la Renta gown to the LA Opera.

My vote went to Abigail Spencer in her black and white Paule Ka gown worn to the ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ LA premiere; as I said at the time, I don’t think she’s ever looked better – she totally blew me away.

Even with very stiff competition from Ryan Reynolds and Dan Stevens, Dandy Gandy, not surprisingly, was the runaway winner. Some may think he only gets votes because he is so damn good looking, but look again – the man knows how to wear a suit. On this occasion his Marks & Spencer suit was tailored and styled to perfection.

Zhang Ziyi In Lanvin – Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala

Zhang Ziyi In Lanvin - Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala

Zhang Ziyi joined Fan Bingbing on the red carpet this evening (September 19) for the Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala in China where she was the host.

While I was expecting an princess gown from Zhang Ziyi, she went left, and served up this laidback elegant Lanvin Resort 2015 look.

No bells, no whistles; just a achingly understated black and white silk blouse with a black maxi skirt oozing boho chic.

I love that she didn’t overdress, styling the look with some complementary accessories including a gold flower belt, silver jewels and Roger Vivier clutch.

Wavy tresses and a red lip rounded out her pitch perfect look.

J’adore. Some times less is more. Do you agree?

Zoe Saldana In Juan Carlos Obando – 2014 Hispanic Heritage Awards

Zoe Saldana In Juan Carlos Obando - 2014 Hispanic Heritage Awards

Zoe Saldana attended the 2014 Hispanic Heritage Awards at Warner Theatre on Thursday (September 18) in Washington, DC.

The actress used the occasion to showcase the designs of fellow Latin star Juan Carlos Obando, wearing a look from his Fall 2014 collection.

In the later stages of the pregnancy we would forgive Zoe for perhaps not being on top form and taking her foot off the gas style-wise, but the mother-to-be is not letting things slip in that department.

She looked stunning in her satin and tulle gown styled with Sam Lehr jewels.

I love how the satin peplum detail perfectly caresses and flatters her bump, giving her a gorgeous silhouette.

She’s never looked better during this maternity phase.

Get The Look: Kirsten Dunst’s ‘The Two Faces of January’ New York Premiere Makeup

KIRSTEN DUNSTCelebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff worked with Kirsten Dunst for the premiere of ‘The Two Faces of January’ this week.

Pati shares her beauty inspiration: “For Kirsten’s premiere, I worked off of the very inspiring Chanel Couture dress she wore. It was made of a neoprene type of fabric which gave it structure and had the most beautiful bead work, which is where my palette was drawn from.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Keeping her skin fresh, Pati prepped with Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist and L’Oreal Miracle Blur in the T-zone. After a light finish of foundation, she used Cle de Peau Concealer in Beige to even out the skin.

The brows were given strong definition using Maybelline Define a Brow in Dark Blonde.

For the eyes, she used a matte cream colour shadow on the lid and a matte putty colour shadow in the crease (both by Dior) to even out the lid and give definition. She then applied a matte bone colour on the lid and a matte taupe in the crease (both by Pati Dubroff Perfect Palette).

Next she used a liquid eyeliner from the centre lash line, extending beyond the outer corner with a flick. On top of the liner, she drew another line from the inner corner of the lash line, then extending on top of the black liner (a double liner effect).

This liner was a silver metallic – Chanel Long Lasting Eyeliner in Silver Light. Pati focused the mascara to the outer lashes to keep the inner eye light and bright.

Pati then applied a swirl of Flower Cream Blush in Petunia on the apples of the cheeks.

Finally, the lips got Chanel Rouge Allure in 217 Radieuse, a pale opal pink to mimic the opal beads on the dress.
