Diane Von Furstenberg’s Journey Of A Dress Exhibition

Diane Von Furstenberg's Journey Of A Dress Exhibition 1The opening-party premiere of Diane Von Furstenberg’s ‘Journey of a Dress’ exhibition brought out a constellation of fashionable femmes (and fans) to preview the show at the Wilshire May Company Building in Los Angeles, California on Friday (January 10). Naturally, all the girls had on the best DVF designs.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Putting some sizzle into her strut, the actress vamped it up just a bit in a wrap jumpsuit, accented with a satin ribbon tie at the side. I found myself liking this sexy and streamlined approach from Gwynnie, especially with that magenta-pink lip. Yes, the plunge neckline is significant, but she’s perhaps one of the few that can make it work to her advantage.

Allison Williams: Looking as classically chic as ever, the ‘Girls’ starlet was oh-so-mod in a monochromatic ‘Amelia’ wrap dress with a flirty, graphic-patterned twirl skirt, from the Spring 2014 collection. She put a twist on the still-trending white pump with her Jimmy Choo ‘Madien’ pumps that were accented with a black ankle-strap and heel. Raising the girly look to a vintage-glam level, she styled her hair into a retro faux bob and painted on a deep-red lip.

Rooney Mara: The actress stayed in her black comfort zone in an asymmetrical dress topped off with a black satin ribbon. A tightly swept-back ‘do and oxblood lip added a more severe note to the loose frock—so, too, did the strange, one-shoulder jacket sleeve.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Rooney Mara In Lanvin & Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood & Todd Snyder

Best Dressed Of The Week - Rooney Mara In Lanvin & Bradley Cooper In Vivienne Westwood & Todd Snyder

For the second week in a row, we picked the same best dressed.

As much as I was longing to give this win to Anna Kendrick, Rooney Mara’s Lanvin white sculptural gown was breathtaking: the only look to give me goosebumps this week.

Bradley Cooper’s Vivienne Westwood Man/Todd Snyder rugged sexy grey winter look stood out for me even though blue seemed to be the menswear trend of last week.

Rooney Mara In Givenchy – ‘Her’ LA Premiere

Rooney Mara In Givenchy - 'Her' LA Premiere

Following her amazing turn on the red carpet in Dubai on Wednesday evening, Rooney Mara attended the LA premiere of ‘Her’ held at the Directors Guild Of America on Thursday evening (December 12) in California alongside Amy Adams and Olivia Wilde.

Reverting back to black, the actress wore a Givenchy black three-quarter-sleeve coat boasting supple leather trims which is classic yet contemporary.

The look was simply styled with black Givenchy sandals.

Methinks that for some the sandals won’t make this the complete package for a winter red carpet look.

Rooney Mara In Lanvin – Oxfam Charity Gala

Rooney Mara In Lanvin - Oxfam Charity Gala

Rooney Mara attended the Oxfam Charity Gala during day six of the 10th Annual Dubai International Film Festival, held at the Armani Hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates this evening.

The actress has a strict colour preference: black or white.

Now I’m the first to wish she would side step out of this comfort-zone, but she looked breath-taking wearing a custom Lanvin one-shoulder gown inspired by the Resort 2014 collection.

The streamline gown, with a slight flared hem, features a sculptural layered neckline of architectural brilliance we expect from Alber Elbaz.

Working the deepest berry lip shade we’ve seen yet, she completed her look with a signature slick back bun.

This is one of my favourite looks from Rooney. This gown is going play havoc on my BDOTY list.

Rooney Mara In Balenciaga – ‘Her’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

Rooney Mara In Balenciaga - 'Her' Rome Film Festival Premiere

Rooney Mara joined Scarlett Johansson on the red carpet for the ‘Her’ premiere during the 8th Rome Film Festival held at Auditorium Parco Della Musica in Italy yesterday evening.

If it’s not black, it’s white. So, having worn a black Louis Vuitton dress to the photocall, she donned white for the premiere, wearing a Balenciaga Spring 2014 dress – our first look at this collection off the runway.

The crushed-lurex and organza-veiled dress was considerably more fashion-forward than Scarlett’s choice and I prefer this of the two, but I just wish I felt she owned the look.

As usual, I feel like she is slightly intimidated by it, however, this is still BDOTW worthy.

B Brian Atwood ‘Labrea’ white leather sandals, a half-up, half-down hairstyle and rouge lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Rooney Mara attended the ‘Her’ photocall during the 8th Rome Film Festival held at the Auditorium Parco Della Musica in Italy yesterday afternoon.

The actress gave us no surprises, donning her favourite colour – black.

Dressed in a Louis Vuitton cap-sleeve, drop-waist, button-down frock with front pocket flaps and a sweet velvet bow detail, she styled the look simply with black and clear-pvc ankle-strap pumps.

Neutral makeup and a ponytail completed her signature no-fuss minimalist look.
