Paula Patton In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 NAACP Image Awards

My reaction to seeing Paula Patton at the 2012 NAACP Image Awards, held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA last night was, “YES”.

Finally the beautiful actress is living up to her potential and giving me nothing to complain about.

She looked outstanding wearing a Monqiue Lhuiller Spring 2011 gown.

The apple red raffia embroidered strapless column gown was teamed with some magnificent gold jewels.

Seeing her looking so good here, I can’t help it wonder why things went so wrong during her MI:4 promo tour.

Paula Patton In Versus – eBay Celebrity and Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Celebrate Pop-Up Gallery Exhibition

Paula Patton attended the eBay Celebrity and Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Celebrate Pop-Up Gallery Exhibition at Chelsea Market in New York City last night.

My first reaction to seeing her in this Versus Spring 2012 dress was, ‘Hmmm…’

Why does her stylist continually get it wrong?

This baby-blue cold-shoulder dress with a pleated skirt is too young for her, tight on the arms and wrong for her body type.

I pictured this look on Leighton Meester, Shailene Woodley or Chloe Moretz; actresses that are 10 or 20 years younger than her.

I can’t even start on the shoes, but as least her jewelry was complementary.

I was hoping Paula would start 2012 on the right foot; I guess that wasn’t to be.

Vanity Fair March 2012 Hollywood Issue

Vanity Fair’s March 2012 issue, which is the annual Hollywood Issue, features eleven of the most up-and-coming actresses who were shot by Mario Testino.

The main cover features Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain.

After the fold we have Elizabeth Olsen, Adepero Oduye, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins and Brit Marling.

There are always great debates that go on with regards to this cover every year.

I would’ve swapped Mia with Elizabeth and had her on the main cover, and I’m not sure Paula should be considered up-and-coming as she’s been around for a while. Also Shailene is totally unrecognisable.

Each actress wore a pastel-coloured satin dress for the 20s boudoir-themed shoot with screen-siren hairstyles and bold lip colours.

They all look great, but Jennifer steals the cover for me as she’s in full-on bombshell mode. Very Jessica Rabbit.

Here are some extracts from their interviews:

Jessica on her superstar crush:The English Patient. Of course. Those love scenes!”

Jennifer on who else she’s like to work with: “I’d love to work with the Cohen brothers. Tommy Lee Jones. Jack Nicholson. And I’d love to work with Renee Zellweger. I’m a huge Renee Zellweger fan.”

Rooney on her crush growing up: “Thom Yorke.”

Jennifer on her childhood crush: “When I was little, like 90s, era, I had such a big crush on Justin Timberlake from *NSYNC that I almost thew up.”

Paula Patton In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Paula Patton was vibrant in yellow at the 2012 Golden Globes Awards this evening.

The ‘Mission Impossible’ actress had heads turning in a marigold Monique Lhuillier Spring 2012 gown.

Her silk faille strapless draped trumpet gown was paired with center-parted curls, pulled halfway back.

Paula didn’t wear a necklace, but she did dazzle wearing Kwiat diamond earrings.

Dark nails add a fun contrast against the bright colour.
