Elizabeth Olsen In The Row – ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ New York Screening

Elizabeth Olsen In The Row -  'Avengers Age of Ultron' New York Screening

Elizabeth Olsen joined Jennifer Connelly at ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ screening at the SVA Theatre in New York City on Tuesday (April 28).

Working an androgynous angle, the actress very much stayed within her straightforward, minimalistic style in The Row separates consisting of a long, oversized plaid trench and skinny black pants.

Supremely elevated by her striking beauty look, the mannish statement took on new, chic meaning with her slicked-back bun and a captivating oxblood lip for sultry vamp-inspired flair.

Although there is no sign of spring in this entrance, the dark look had a level of underlying intrigue and mystery that captured my attention.

Some of you found her last appearance rather boring. Does this look fall under the same category, or are you feeling more inspired?

Michelle Obama In Tadashi Shoji – White House State Dinner

Michelle Obama In Tadashi Shoji - White House State Dinner

Michelle Obama attended the State Dinner in honour of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie Abe, on Tuesday (April 28) at the White House in Washington, D.C.

Regal in royal purple, the FLOTUS wore Octavia Spencer’s go-to designer in a Tadashi Shoji gown featuring tonal, feathery lace embroidery at the bodice cascading into beautiful, frothy layers of tulle.

Seeing this look on the runway made me crave the more fairy-like, diaphanous sheer effect of the original confection. But the dress was necessarily lined for the First Lady and the event.

Regardless, this offering still sees Michelle mixing refined elegance with fanciful femininity for a softer side to the more structured silhouette she occasionally favours.

A loosely undone updo and natural makeup contributed an effortless finishing touch to her entrance.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ New York Screening

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - 'Avengers Age of Ultron' New York Screening

Jennifer Connelly attended the ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ screening at the SVA Theatre in New York City on Tuesday (April 28).

To no one’s surprise, the actress relied on the same Louis Vuitton style equation in this Fall 2015 black frock that radiated with metallic embroidery.

Like her last LV entrance, this one featured puffed, mutton-inspired statement shoulders and sleeves adding a bit of flair to the standard short-dress silhouette.

Her shoe choice was rather safe, too. Black pumps were the easy answer and certainly fit the bill, but an unexpected contrast would have been welcomed—not that I’m necessarily advocating for the runway’s white pair.

That said, in light of the predictable fashion statement, she wears it with effortless ease and I did appreciate the richness of the multicoloured metallics which are beautifully echoed in her bold berry lip.

Naomi Watts In Givenchy – Jimmy Kimmel Live

Naomi Watts In Givenchy - Jimmy Kimmel Live

Naomi Watts recently made an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’

Injecting her look with the sexy allure that characterized the Givenchy Spring 2015 collection, the actress made a dynamic entrance in black and white.

The wild stripes of her low-cut, sheer chiffon top were tamed by skinny black trousers and simple black sandals for an all-out sophisticated approach as we’d expect from Naomi.

It may have not been a dress, but the mood was va-va-voom, especially given the crimson red lip and crimped waves.

Elizabeth Banks In Emilia Wickstead – ‘Pitch Perfect 2′ Paris Premiere

Elizabeth Banks In Emilia Wickstead - 'Pitch Perfect 2' Paris Premiere

Elizabeth Banks attends the ‘Pitch Perfect 2′ Paris premiere at UGC Cine Cite on Tuesday (April 28) in Paris, France.

Upon seeing this all black look consisting of a high-neck Emilia Wickstead Fall 2015 dress, styled with a Anya Hindmarch ‘Crisp’ packet clutch, Sophia Webster pumps and Ileana Makri diamond curtain earrings, I asked myself – should I be worried?

The one lady I rely upon (other than Solange Knowles, Anya O’Reilly and Gillian Jacobs) to bring some colour to the red carpet is doing a Jennifer Aniston? Say it ain’t so?

But in reality Elizabeth is showcasing that she has more than one string to her bow. It’s doesn’t have to be Elie Saab Couture for all premieres all of the time.

I love that this look is visually striking, while embodying a subtle sheen that no doubt garnered envious looks.
