Best Dressed Of The Week – Thandie Newton In Osman & Lea Seydoux In Prada

This week you voted for simple elegance, as Thandie Newton was your best dressed wearing a beautiful black Osman gown.

Her chic black one-shoulder gown with a flash of gold from her belt was perfectly accessorized with a Roger Vivier clutch, Solange Azagury-Partridge tassel earrings and Charlotte Olympia wedges.

Lea Seydoux was my favourite this week.

I love that she has the bombshell vibe about her, without being so upfront like Amber Heard.

She quietly smouldered on the red carpet wearing head-to-toe Prada.

The dress was gorgeous, but her accessories were to die for.

Thandie Newton In Stella McCartney – ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ World Premiere

Two Thandie Newton red carpet appearances in two days; she’s really spoiling us.

The ‘Queen of Consistency’ looked simply elegant again whilst attending the world premiere of ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ in London tonight.

She wore a Stella McCartney Resort 2012 one-sleeve dress.

Some of you weren’t too crazy about her Charlotte Olympia wedges with her previous look, but on this occasion she opted for simple nude pumps.

A chic bun, Solange Azagury-Partridge jewels and barely-there makeup completed her look.

As much as I have lambasted the Stella McCartney Spring 2012 collection, I’m now wondering how Thandie would fare in this collection.

If anyone could make it work it would be Thandie? No?

Thandie Newton In Osman – Laureus World Sports Awards 2012

The Laureus World Sports Awards 2012 took place in London last night and we finally got to see the lovely Thandie Newton return to the red carpet.

She wore a beautiful Osman Resort 2012 dress.

The ‘oh so simple, yet stunning’ one-shoulder look drapes around her body and is accented with a gold waistband.

The black-and-gold Roger Vivier ‘Nonsense’ clutch complements the dress as does her Charlotte Olympia wedges, but it’s those gold Solange Azagury-Partridge tassle earrings that I absolutely love.

As always she is glowing, with her hair swept to one side and the beautiful copper lip colour providing the perfect finishing touch.

This is my first contender for BDOTW.

I don’t think I have ever featured Thandie without adding her to the poll. That is how consistent she has been.

She also never ages.

Thandie Newton In Giles – Death And The Maiden Press Night After Party

It’s been over a month since we last saw Thandie Newton. The British actress attended the ‘Death and the Maiden’ press after-party in London last night.

On her last outing she wore a Giles Resort 2012 dress; this time she wore a Giles Spring 2012 dress.

As always she looks absolutely divine.

I love the mix of colours, textures and prints here.

Her dress has a leopard print and silk print top with a red waistband and a silver metallic skirt.

I just love the unexpected pop of aqua Nicholas Kirkwood pumps.

This isn’t an easy look to pull off with so much going on, plus she doesn’t play it safe with black pumps.

It’s going to be a hard week, but I would love to squeeze this into BDOTW.

Thandie Newton In Giles – Coach & Gwyneth Paltrow Dinner Party

Thandie Newton also attended the Coach dinner party to celebrate the opening of the first European flagship store on London’s New Bond Street last night.

The actress chose a sophisticated silk floral Giles Resort 2012 dress which features cream panels around the neckline and waist.

Thandie accessorized with silver Miu Miu glitter heels, a chic nude Calvin Klein clutch and GEM earrings.

I love the clutch and earrings, plus with her pretty makeup and swept up hair this is a stunning look.

2011 Met Gala Round-Up

Here is the final round up from the 2011 Met Gala.

Salma Hayek wore a costume Alexander McQueen peach organza rose dress. We have all questioned her McQueen choices in the past, but this type of gown is perfect for her. She accessorized with a McQueen clutch and Gucci jewels.

Margherita Missoni is her own best brand ambassador. She was glowing wearing an ombre Missoni Fall 2011 knit dress with a feathered skirt.

Sofia Vergara wore a Carolina Herrera strapless blossom print faille gown. Like Renee she’s found the perfect designer for her. So refreshing not to see her twins spilling out.

Anna Dello Russo chose a masculine military Alexander McQueen look which included a black duchesse satin tailcoat, white shirt and gold fern embroidered pants.

I love the look, she’s been doing the masculine thing a lot lately, but that Egg on her head is bordering on GaGa terrority. Ridiculous.

Who Wore Vivienne Westwood Better? Thandie Newton or Robin Wright

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.
