Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Robin Wright In Rolando Santana Atelier - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association

‘House of Cards’ actress Robin Wright must have been laughing at the ‘House of Nerds’ spoof video that opened the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C.

Yesterday evening, she wore a navy Rolando Santana Spring 2013 Atelier stretch matte taffeta gown.

At certain angles, the ‘Sonja’ dress’s feminine ruffle, asymmetric neckline just looked like her shoulder strap had fallen down.

But it still won points in my book, as it softened the edgy appeal of Robin’s uber-cropped blonde pixie ‘do.

She kept her makeup minimal (a bronzing glow worked just fine) and her accessories on the light side, with a conservative pair of Ivanka Trump diamond earrings and bracelet and a silver Cecelia clutch.

Robin Wright In Ralph Lauren - ‘House of Cards’ Netflix Original Series Launch

Robin Wright joined Kate Mara on the red carpet for the launch of Netflix Original Series ‘House of Cards’ in London yesterday evening.

Sporting a pixie cut, the actress looked very statuesque wearing a Ralph Lauren Spring 2013 gown.

The black-and-ivory halter gown, with a satin top accented with black buttons and black embroidered corset-like detail at the waist, was simply styled with Stuart Weitzman ‘Victoria’ black peep-toes and stud earrings.

The fit of the top of the gown prevents me from loving the look. A few minor adjustments would’ve perfected it.

Robin must have been freezing, considering its been cold enough to snow in the capital, but she shows no signs of it on the red carpet.

Robin Wright glided down the red carpet at the 2011 Doha Tribeca Film Festival in Qatar on Saturday night.

She opted to wear an Elie Saab Spring 2007 Couture gown from the designer’s archives.

The black strapless tulle gown was worn with a drape detail on one shoulder which cascades down her back into a flowing train.

Robin opted to go light on the jewels and she didn’t carry a clutch to allow the focus to be on her dramatic black gown.

Glossy pink lips and side-sweeping bangs completed her look.

Robin Wright attended the 2011 Gucci Award for Women in Cinema event at Hotel Cipriani this past Friday.

The actress, who is a Juror at the event, chose a stunning Gucci Resort 2012 gold sequin-embroidered georgette gown.
She sparkled on the red carpet, adding Gucci accessories including gold sequin evening sandals, a black suede clutch with gold leather trim, an 18 karat yellow gold horsebit bracelet with brown diamonds and a matching yellow gold ring.
Robin finished her look by wearing her cropped blonde hair swept across her forehead and adding a touch of pink lipgloss.

She looks beautiful in this dress, which reminds me of liquid gold.

I like that she opted not to wear the oversized floral brooch like the model. It’s gorgeous enough as it is.

Thandie Newton wore this sophisticated Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2011 tailored grey suit whilst out promoting her movie “For Colored Girls” back in October last year.

Managing to score the outfit just weeks after it walked the runway at London Fashion Week, Thandie looks impossibly chic, adding red studded Stella McCartney heels and a brown suede Miu Miu tote.

Her makeup is flawless and she is simply glowing. I love how the suit fits her so perfectly and that her accessories add some oomph to the grey.

Robin Wright recently wore the same suit to the Washington DC Premiere of her movie “The Conspirator” and what a contrast.

The jacket is very ill-fitting and the pants don’t seem to taper as well on her as they did on Thandie. Paired with nothing but basic black pointed heels, Robin’s look is extremely lack-lustre. I also find the outfit to be a bit of an odd choice for a red carpet premiere.

For me, there’s no question about who the winner is here. Thandie gets it spot on with a better fit, fresh makeup, a chic hairdo and eye-catching accessories. Robin, on the other hand, failed to hit the mark. It’s extremely hard to see past such a poor fit and it doesn’t help that she made zero attempts to jazz up her look with great accessories.

Robin Wright totally redeemed herself at “The Conspirator” New York Premiere last night.

We weren’t too keen on her Westwood suit yesterday, but what a difference 24 hours makes.

She did a complete 180 wearing a crispy white Julien Macdonald pant suit which sharply nips her in at the waist, and has silver accents on the pants.

Robin’s most improved look of the week also included a sexy pair of silver Jimmy Choo ‘Maiden’ strappy sandals and pink glossy lips.
