2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

Vanity Fair Party

Here is an quick roundup from the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, which took place on Sunday (February 22).

Jane Fonda: The actress shows us that Zuhair Murad doesn’t always spell tacky. This Spring 2015 Couture jumpsuit is divine and she is working it like no other. Kudos to her. Jimmy Choo ‘Creole’ pumps and a Rauwolf clutch accessorized her look.

Regina King: This Nicolas Jebran gown won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love the artful colours on this design. I don’t, however, like the illusion neckline. Not close enough to her skin tone.

Leslie Mann: Like Naomi Watts, Leslie went the white suiting route, layering up with a selection of gold Neil Lane jewels the look probably didn’t really require so much of.

8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of some of the other looks from the 8th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday (February 19) in Beverly Hills, California. Sadly it doesn’t include Lupita Nyong’o, who wore Peter Pilotto ‘Hendrix’ dress but decided to skip the red carpet.

Teyonah Parris: The ‘Mad Men’ actress is one person you can never miss on a red carpet. She may not be wearing a fabulous gown, but here she hits us with a bright emerald hue and modern suiting design by Kimberly Goldson. Factor in that studded clutch and lace pumps and we have yet another winning look from the actress.

Chanel Iman: As we know, Chanel loves a gown even more than Teyonah does, so even though this was a luncheon I was still shocked she didn’t stick to the tried and true. The model wore a sporty striped Jonathan Simkhai Pre-Fall 2015 racer dress styled with braided Brian Atwood ‘Olive’ sandals and a Rodo clutch.

Samira Wiley: Forgoing the ladies-who-lunch frock, the ‘Orange Is The New Black’ actress served up her own style of luncheon loveliness wearing an Azede Jean-Pierre Spring 2015 crop top and trousers featuring decorative embroidery.

ELLE’s Annual Women in Television Celebration

ELLE's Annual Women in Television Celebration

ELLE’s Annual Women in Television Celebration took place at the Sunset Tower on Tuesday (January 13) in West Hollywood, California, with many women in television in attendance.

Sarah Hyland: The ‘Modern Family’ star opted for head-to-toe white. I love the voluminous structure of her DKNY Spring 2015 dress, which only highlights the alluring cut-outs further. Styled with a classic Edie Parker clutch, the look was given a touch of colour via her hot-pink lip.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: Pretty in pink, the actress wore an Osman Spring 2015 dress accented with black fringed details, which she complemented with matching pumps and a box clutch.

Jenna Dewan Tatum: The ‘Witches of East End’ golden girl wore a slinky metallic dress from Reem Acra’s Fall 2014 collection styled with Kurt Geiger London ‘Belgravia’ sandals.

Regina King In Michael Costello – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Regina King In Michael Costello - NAACP Image Awards 2014Regina King was also in attendance at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Saturday (February 22).

The film and TV actress wore a black Michael Costello gown.

I can only suppose this design was intended to project a sophisticated, yet edgy, image. But I’m having a hard time moving past the major cutout that rips through the bodice in a rather unflattering manner.

A sheer, cape-back train, all the frou of a too-long full skirt and rather unfortunate fit issues did nothing to warm my affection to this look.

Simone Smith gold jewelry was likely selected to coordinate with the dress’s hardware, but the gigantic hoop earrings only added to the distracting forces at play here.

I did like the pink lip, but sadly that may be the extent of the positivity I can muster here.

Regina King In Badgley Mischka - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Regina King worked the red carpet to her advantage at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards, hosted last night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California.

The ‘Southland’ actress pulls off vivid colors with panache, but she still impressed with her Badgley Mischka cream cocktail dress with black lace detail and sash at the waist.

Regina’s look was unquestionably chic, but she did reveal her playful fashion side with her peep-toe Valentino pumps tied up with a big bow. Her reverse French pedicure with bright purple lacquer and white tips was also a surprise.

Sparkling Simon G jewels and a black Judith Leiber clutch completed her look.
