Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Thandie Newton In Temperley London  - BAFTA Los Angeles 2013 Awards Season Tea PartyIt was rather appropriate that Thandie Newton opted to wear a china blue shade to the BAFTA Los Angeles 2013 Awards Season Tea Party, held yesterday afternoon at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California.

Likewise fitting, she picked British label Temperley London for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts event.

There was a distinct ’50s chic flair about this Spring 2013 look, updated for now with the sheer and solid trend.

The swingy organza skirt with its horizontal ribbon stripes was pretty, although the extra lining that was not present on the runway took away some of the enticement.

I couldn’t help but wish that Thandie had picked one of the more vibrant crimson moments from the collection—and that she had done something different with her un-styled hair.

Thandie Newton attended the Hope Rising! Benefit Concert at the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, Canada on Wednesday evening.

I instantly fell in love with her colourful Jewel by Lisa Spring 2012 embellished jumpsuit with an crocheted yoke, seeing as I am a fan of jumpsuits and colour.

Lisa Folawiyo is known for using traditional African fabrics, creating modern silhouettes with those fabrics and westernizing the look through the use of embellishments, and this is a classic example of her unique work.

Thandie fell in love with the designers work when she was in Nigeria earlier this year filming ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’.

Her modern look was styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ metallic silver pumps and a metallic box clutch.

As per usual, she’s still stunning without makeup and why should she wear any when she has the most perfect skin – must be due to those Olay products she’s been promoting.

A simple top-knot completed her look.

My favourite girl Thandie Newton attended a party celebrating the global launch of Audi City, Audi’s first digital showroom, featuring an art installation by Chris Cunningham in London yesterday evening.

The actress, who doesn’t appear to age, wore a dress by one of her favourite designers, Stella McCartney.

The peplum is summer’s big trend, which was kick started at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.

We’ve seen many interpretations of the trend, but here Thandie works it in an uber-chic way wearing this black-and-teal stretch-jersey sleeveless Stella McCartney dress.

Yes, this is a dress best suited for fall, but with the non-stop rain in the UK making it feel more like October, this look couldn’t be more appropriate.

Gold accessories including a Stella McCartney gold wicker clutch and black Stella McCartney wedges provided the finishing touches.

You can buy Thandie’s Stella McCartney dress from Net-A-Porter US and Luisa via Roma.

Last night at the Nigerian Embassy in London, Thandie Newton attended the launch party for OK! Nigeria magazine.

OK! Nigeria magazine is the first African version of OK!, the world’s biggest celebrity lifestyle magazine which is printed in 20 countries.

Unlike the other publications, it will be a monthly publication celebrating high-profile Nigerians around the world and other African-Caribbean celebrities.

Thandie opted for a comfortable look, pairing a floral-print top with black tapered pants.

Thandie Newton attended the premiere of ‘Good Deeds’ in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

The stunning actress wore a metallic gold lace Temperley London Pre-Fall 2012 dress with three-quarter length sleeves.

While the dress appears super-styled in the Pre-Fall look-book, Thandie lets the dress speak for itself accessorizing only with a simple black clutch and black strappy heels.

Gold accents on her Jimmy Choo ‘Koko’heels keep the shoes from appearing too heavy.

Thandie’s textured curls are swept up into a high bun with what appears to be a hair donut keeping the curls in place thus creating a perfect circular shape.

A deep rouge lip colour completed her look.
