Rashida Jones In Proenza Schouler – 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

Rashida Jones In Proenza Schouler - 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film AwardsRashida Jones attended the 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards, hosted yesterday at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

The actress worked a slightly over-sized silhouette in a black Proenza Schouler Spring 2014 dress with a deep V-neck plunge, through which the lines of a black bralette peeked for a bit of sultry edge.

Taking the look away from one-note territory, she popped the frock with a colourful Jimmy Choo ‘Cairo’ clutch, featuring a kaleidoscope of geometric accents, along with a Delfina Delettrez bracelet.

If I focus on her ensemble from the ankles up, I have a greater appreciation for it. Those Bionda Castana ‘Christa’ black woven, ankle-strap heels were far too clunky and chunky for my liking.

Glossy waves and a petal-pink lip were a pretty final touch.

Kenzo Kalifornia Launch Dinner and Party

Kenzo Kalifornia Launch Dinner And Party

Playful prints were the name of the game at last night’s Kenzo Kalifornia launch dinner and party at The Berrics in Los Angeles, California.

Rashida Jones: The star, who also co-hosted the festivities, wore a short blue Kenzo Spring 2014 beaded fish motif dress with white platform sandals. Rashida definitely dressed the part of laid-back California girl, only accessorizing further with a sky blue bag, half-up hair, and a light berry lip stain.

Jessica Alba: The actress gave her Kenzo Resort 2014 perforated embroidery palm print shift a wintry twist by adding opaque black tights, a black bag, and chunkier black cut-out booties. Her loose waves and fresh bronzed-glow makeup lived up to that signature California sun-kissed look; and for the sake of the outfit, I’m glad she lightened things up a little.

Of the two Kenzo looks above, do you have a favourite?

16th Annual Mark Twain Prize For American Humor

16th Annual Mark Twain Prize For American Humor

A trio of funny girls turned out for the 16th Annual Mark Twain Prize For American Humor held at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington. D.C. on Sunday.

Rashida Jones: The actress buttoned up in a Miu Miu floral-embroidered top paired with high-waisted black Celine sailor pants, a Chanel clutch and YSL shoes. A retro-look statement earring, along with a crimson lip and wavy ponytail, finished the straightforward ensemble with a fun flair.

Tina Fey: Lace was Tina’s trend of the day with her black Oscar de la Renta cocktail dress, which she wore with peep-toe slingback pumps and a black satin clutch—and a ponytail.

Amy Poehler: There wasn’t much to like or dislike about this basic black dress with a lightly embellished collar neckline. The clunky black heels didn’t do the frock any favours.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Spring 2014

Front Row @ Miu Miu

The Palais d’Iena in France played host today to the charming wiles of designer Miuccia Prada’s Miu Miu Spring 2014 runway show during Paris Fashion Week—and to a packed front row of starlets who all showed their affection for the brand in head-to-toe Miu Miu looks.

Dianna Agron: Donning a palette of midnight blue and black, the ‘Glee’ girlie was sophisticated in a floaty frock and embellished overcoat—even if the bright teal clutch was a borderline confusing addition.

Michelle Dockery: The ‘Downton Abbey’ darling looked chic in a leather LBD that got kicked up with a sparkling beaded neckline and the pop of a bright fuchsia lip that I loved.

Lena Dunham: In perhaps one of her more classic style exits to date, the ‘Girls’ star covered up in a fire-engine red coat, worn over a simple black dress and amped up with a metallic statement cuff and necklace.

Front Row @ Tory Burch Spring 2014

Front Row @ Tory Burch Spring 2014

Tory Burch’s Spring 2014 show, held today during New York Fashion Week at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, saw a charming and fresh set of exits parading down the watery-blue catwalk. The ladies in the front row launched their own charm offensive, too.

Emmy Rossum: The actress was the epitome of preppy-chic in her navy-blue Tory Burch Resort 2013 ‘Sandy’ lace-embellished sweater and ‘Davis’ leather leggings. She adorably styled the look with Tory Burch’s ‘Gracie’ pumps, the ‘Sparkle’ square frame clutch—and a perfect red lip. But her best accessory may have been her camera, as she snapped away documenting all the runway action.

Rashida Jones: Wearing a veritable garden bouquet, the actress put on a blooming ‘Kaley’ dress that also hailed from the Tory Burch Resort 2013 collection. Pointy, black gladiator-inspired heels, as well as a bold red clutch and crimson lippie, were punchy if not slightly harsh counterpoints to the pastel mini-frock.

Anna Dello Russo: The fashionably eccentric editrix skipped the Tory Burch trend, instead showing us a Saint Laurent Fall 2013 dress. The pink rose-patterned frock was just too twee, even with its black bow and those heavily embellished, studded black boots, which couldn’t put the rock star in this look.
