Rita Ora In Viktor & Rolf Couture – Hot 99.5’s Jingle Ball 2014

Rita Ora In Viktor & Rolf Couture - Hot 995's Jingle Ball 2014

Rita Ora took to the red carpet on Monday (December 15) prior to performing on stage at Hot 99.5’s Jingle Ball 2014 held at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC.

The singe wore a Viktor & Rolf Fall 2014 Couture red knot detailed dress styled with fishnet tights and bow front pumps.

The conceptual design ends up looking like a fancy bathrobe on Rita.

This should’ve perhaps been left for Lady Gaga.

At this point I have to wonder whether she on a one woman mission to claim WDOTY.

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – Moet & Chandon Celebration

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo - Moet & Chandon Celebration

Fan Bingbing attended a commercial event celebrating Moet & Chandon on Friday (December 12) in Shanghai, China.

The actress wore a red one-shoulder gown by British couturiers Ralph & Russo.

I have to say I am not a fan of this Fall 2014 Couture gown on Bingbing.

It totally overwhelms her petite frame with all that fabrication draped at the hips and waist.

I was immediately put off by the crease on the skirt and train, but, having looked at the runway image, perhaps this is intended.

With tonal peep-toes, which surprisingly aren’t offensive on this rare occasion, and matching lip colour, I see the potential, but the end result wasn’t to my liking.

I especially dislike how bad the dress looked when she walked the red carpet.

16.12.14 Menswear, Premiere

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

men 16 dec

Here is a quick look at some of the dapper gents taking to the red carpet this week.

Common: The actor attended the ‘Selma’ New York premiere alongside the lovely Tessa Thompson on Sunday (December 14), looking pretty sharp himself wearing a Calvin Klein Collection suit. While the cut and fit is to be admired, I can’t help swooning at how the oxblood hue is so heavenly against his caramel skin tone. Styled with a blush shirt and patterned tie, the look was completed by a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood lace-up shoes with a contrast trim.

Bradley Cooper: The actor was back to his super-sharp best, donning a black silky-smooth cashmere Tom Ford suit to the ‘American Sniper’ New York premiere. The look is simple and classic, which only serves to bring out those gorgeous blue eyes. While I prefer Cooper with a bit of stubble, this clean-shaven look does have me swooning.

Dan Stevens: The British actor attended the ‘Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb’ London premiere held at the Empire Leicester Square on Monday (December 15). The buttoned-up shirt tieless look doesn’t always work for me as it has a feeling of being not quite finished, yet with the slickness of the Armani suit styled with the studded shoes, I would say Dan pulls this look off with great aplomb.

Hillary Scott In Lanvin – 2014 American Country Countdown Awards

Hillary Scott In Lanvin - 2014 American Country Countdown Awards

Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum attended the 2014 American Country Countdown Awards held at the Music City Center on Monday (December 15) in Nashville, Tennessee.

The singer opted for a sumptuous, siren-hued red Lanvin jersey dress with a scintillating V neckline and knotted detail defining her waist.

Styled with a black and gold clutch, this is one for Hillary’s Hall of Fame. I am captivated by this colour on her.

You may remember that Demi Lovato wore this same gown to the 2014 VMAs with a lot more cleavage, tonal styling and va-va-voom.

Amy Adams In Max Mara - 'Big Eyes' New York Premiere

Amy Adams joined Krysten Ritter on the red carpet for the ‘Big Eyes’ New York premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday (December 15) in New York City.

The face of Max Mara wore a forest-green belted shirt dress by the Italian brand in a floor-sweeping silhouette, which despite its luxe appeal feels like quite a casual laid-back offering from Amy.

Brimming with elegance and femininity, she styled the look with gold Jimmy Choo sandals and Tiffany jewels.

Sienna Miller In Balenciaga – ‘American Sniper’ New York Premiere

Sienna Miller In Balenciaga - 'American Sniper' New York Premiere

Sienna Miller attended the ‘American Sniper’ New York premiere held at the Frederick P. Rose Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, on Monday (December 15) in New York City.

Following her youthful press conference look earlier in the day, the British actress selected a Balenciaga Spring 2015 ivory dress with mini diamond-fringed appliques, a crossover satin ivory bodice and sheer sleeves.

I find the sheerness of this piece alluring rather than tacky, but those o.v.e.r. the sheer trend are going to disagree with me, I’m sure.

Styled with Balenciaga sandals, I feel the Harry Winston diamond earrings would’ve sufficed. The Harry Winston necklace is the one thing she should’ve taken off as it does nothing to enhance the look in my opinion and I would’ve preferred a simple clean finish.

However, I would still consider this BDOTW worthy.
