Chanel Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Dinner

Chanel And Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Dinner 3

There are fewer events more chic than Chanel’s annual pre-Oscar dinner co-hosted by Charles Finch. A host of glamorous stars celebrated an evening of fashion and film at Madeo in Beverly Hills, California, last night (March 1).

Emilia Clarke: ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Emilia Clarke dazzled at the event in a white boucle dress with silver sequin strips and light blue and yellow tweed. Her hair swept up over into a sleek quiff really suite Emilia and added a youthful spin. While the silver Manolo Blahnik sandals kept the look crisp and fresh, the white quilted Chanel clutch was a too big for my liking.

Naomie Harris: Looking radiant in a black tweed dress with dusky pink cap sleeves, Naomie Harris wowed at last night’s dinner. The dress was a great fit for Naomie and also offered a more ladylike change of pace to her usual sassy red carpet style. To finish, Naomie opted for a great chic pair of sandals and her sleek hair and rose tinted lip colour were just perfection. Naomie’s Chanel outing at the pre-BAFTA party wasn’t her strongest, how do you feel this one compares?

Anne Hathaway: Anne Hathaway has been switching up her style recently which is something I’ve really welcomed but last night she returned to her former signature style of a feminine shift dress and heels combo. Wearing a skater style black Chanel dress with lace insert, she added a bold red lip for some welcome drama. Anne styled the simple look with black Salvatore Ferragamo pointed-toe heels with straps which certainly added edge but I feel Anne could have opted for an altogether more commanding look, and one that suited her cool quiff.

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better…Sienna Miller or Gemma Chan?

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better Sienna Miller or Gemma Chan

Sienna Miller joined her beau Tom Sturridge on the red carpet for the 2013 Tony Awards back in June.

Being the face of Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2014 ad campaign, the British actress wore a calf-grazing antique-rose strapless pencil dress from the Resort 2014 collection with a floral headband and nude pumps.

Gemma Chan wore the same dress to the ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ LA premiere last month, styling the look with a white Burberry Prorsum ‘Petal’ clutch and black Saint Laurent sandals.

Despite not being a fan of Sienna’s floral headband at the time, her overall styling is much preferred over Gemma’s, whose accessories don’t complement her dress in my opinion.

Sienna Miller In Burberry – British Fashion Awards 2013

Sienna Miller In Burberry - British Fashion Awards 2013

Sienna Miller brought a welcome shot of jewel-toned colour to the 2013 British Fashion Awards, held on Monday at the London Coliseum in England.

Sadly, the vibrant emerald hue of her Burberry Prorsum side-slit gown was about the only component working in her favour.

Not only were the flashy tribal Dominic Jones ‘Kamba’ necklace and silver sandals a harsh counterpoint, they made her bronze clutch appear all the more out of place.

But my biggest issues with her entrance were the visible wrinkles of a rumpled dress and the ill-fitting bodice that did her no justice, not to mention her pink-stained, messy-curly locks.

I just wanted to lend her a brush.

Sienna Miller In Carven – BFI Gala Dinner

Sienna Miller In Carven - BFI Gala Dinner

Sienna Miller attended a gala dinner hosted by the BFI ahead of the 57th London Film Festival held at 8 Northumberland Avenue in London, England yesterday evening, which also saw Eliza Doolittle in attendance.

The British actress turned to a much loved Parisian brand for her red carpet look, wearing a Carven white dress from the Resort 2014 collection.

Her spaghetti-strap dress featuring a gathered bodice and a draped, wrap-effect skirt with on-seam side pockets was styled with De Beers diamond jewels and black Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps.

Yes, I am disappointed by the pumps, especially when everything is so clean and simple here.

Do you feel like you’ve seen this dress before?

That’s because Diane Kruger wore the Prince of Wales check-print strapless Look Book version of this dress earlier this year.

Sienna Miller In Alexander McQueen – Clinton Global Initiative

Sienna Miller In Alexander McQueen – Clinton Global Initiative

Sienna Miller attended a reception for the Clinton Global Initiative, hosted in New York City yesterday evening.

While there, the actress and International Medical Corps ambassador showed her dedication to the initiative—and to fashion. Her off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen dress was subtle, yet also delivered a more dynamic punch with the gold embroidered lattice pattern on the bodice.

She also kept her accessories on the quiet side with minimal jewels and black, pointy Ash ‘Janet’ black suede booties, along with barely-there makeup and loosely styled blonde locks.

Does she get your style vote this time out?

An Evening To Celebrate The Global Fund

An Evening To Celebrate The Global Fund

Many other fashionistas joined the Beckhams at Apsley House in London yesterday evening for the celebration of the Global Fund’s first Green Carpet Challenge.

Jemma Kidd: The makeup artist/fashion model wore an Antonio Berardi Resort 2014 blue-black-and-white geometric-print dress styled with Roger Vivier pumps and a black clutch. For me there is a huge disconnect between the dress and the shoes. A sexy pair of Manolos or edgy footwear by Casadei or Kirkwood would’ve been more complementary.

Sienna Miller: After taking her front-row seat as brand ambassador at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 show, the actress wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring the brand’s hallmarks: floral and lace. Having seen this dress in various guises on the red carpet before, it’s a little hard to get that excited about it, especially when she styled it with flats.

Jodi Kidd: Joining her sister at the event, the former race car driver who has recently returned to modelling wore an Preen navy-and-neon-yellow floral dress styled with sexy lace Jimmy Choos, bracelets and a black clutch. Thankfully, her shoe game is better than her sister’s. You may remember that fellow model Helena Christensen wore the same dress earlier this year.
