2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

Vanity Fair Party

Here is an quick roundup from the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, which took place on Sunday (February 22).

Jane Fonda: The actress shows us that Zuhair Murad doesn’t always spell tacky. This Spring 2015 Couture jumpsuit is divine and she is working it like no other. Kudos to her. Jimmy Choo ‘Creole’ pumps and a Rauwolf clutch accessorized her look.

Regina King: This Nicolas Jebran gown won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love the artful colours on this design. I don’t, however, like the illusion neckline. Not close enough to her skin tone.

Leslie Mann: Like Naomi Watts, Leslie went the white suiting route, layering up with a selection of gold Neil Lane jewels the look probably didn’t really require so much of.

Thandie Newton In Chanel – ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ World Premiere

Thandie Newton In Chanel - 'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' World Premiere

Thandie Newton attended the Royal Film Performance and world premiere of ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ held at the Odeon Leicester Square on Tuesday (February 17) in London, England.

It’s rare for me to develop goosebumps upon sight of a black and white dress, but that is exactly what happened in this case.

On a scale of one to ten, the never-ageing beauty that is Thandie Newton scored a perfect ten in looking breathtaking in this Chanel strapless velvet gown.

Usually I prefer a clean neckline with a strapless gown, but her ‘Panache and Pearl’ Chanel Fine Jewellery necklace only serves to enhance the sophistication and glamorous nature of this look.

This could’ve come off as boring and dated, but Thandie made the look the perfect jewel that it is.

Judges, what are your scores?

Thandie Newton In Suno – ‘The Slap’ New York Premiere Party

Thandie Newton In Suno - 'The Slap' New York Premiere Party

It’s always a delight to see Thandie Newton on the red carpet, and last night saw her return for the ‘The Slap’ premiere party held at The New Museum on Monday (February 9) in New York City.

Digging back into her closet, she pulled out all the stops wearing a Suno floral-print dress from the Spring 2013 collection with a midriff cut-out front revealing just the right amount of skin.

I love this floral print. With its stop-and-stare capabilities, the print makes you say ooh, while Thandie’s playful approach has you grinning, like she is, from ear to ear.

Working a natural curly do, I love the additional pop of colour provided by the aquamarine earrings, plus I have to hold my hands up and say the white pumps worked perfectly here.

I wouldn’t change a thing. Would you?

You may remember that Lindsay Lohan wore this same dress on Letterman back in 2013.

Thandie Newton In Eki Orleans – Audi International Event

Thandie Newton In Eki Orleans - Audi International Event

Thandie Newton attended the Audi International event at Guards Polo Club on Saturday (July 26) in Egham, England to support England as it faces Argentina for the Coronation Cup.

The British actress wore a multi-coloured print dress with exaggerated hips from Nigerian designer, Eki Orleans.

This mini dress from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection is a perfect amalgamation of African prints with a contemporary design.

Styled with beige criss-cross sandals and a veiled fascinator, I am sure the actress turned more than a few heads, especially considering she gave birth to her latest bundle of joy just four months ago.

Thandie Newton In David Bailey – Solange Azagury-Partridge Menswear Presentation

Thandie Newton In David Bailey - Solange Azagury-Partridge Menswear Presentation

Thandie Newton attended the Solange Azagury-Partridge presentation of her first menswear jewelry collection, ‘ALPHA’, during London Collections: Men SS15, held at the Solange Azagury-Partridge Mount Street boutique on Monday (June 16) in London, England.

The British actress continued to show her love for the iconic Grace Jones, wearing another T-shirt with her face emblazoned on it.

Her collage-style print is made up of a collection of David Bailey’s most iconic photographs.

Working an effortless look, Thandie paired her tee with light grey jeans and a short-sleeved shawl-collar black blazer.

A collection of Solange Azagury-Partridge bracelets, sparkling pumps and a Stella McCartney clutch accessorized her look, with carefree curls and barely-there makeup providing the finishing touches.

I have been saying this for the last 7 years: this woman doesn’t age.

Need to find out her secret.

Thandie Newton In Osman – ‘Half Of A Yellow Sun’ London Premiere

Thandie Newton In Osman - 'Half Of A Yellow Sun' London Premiere

Thandie Newton made a welcome return to the red carpet for the UK Premiere of ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ held at Odeon Streatham on Tuesday (April 8) in London, England.

The British actress has always been a great supporter of British designers, so I was delighted to see her wearing a look from one of the most exciting designers who has become a red carpet favourite: Osman Yousefzada.

Her Fall 2014 black square-neck pencil dress features a metallic eye motif (just one of the signatures of this collection).

I love the timeless element courtesy of its pitch-black hue, and the contemporary twist courtesy of the eye motif, but also the accessories, including gold Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps and a blue Christian Louboutin ‘Aida’ satin clutch, which complement the motif.

As always, flawless.

Thandie Newton In Stella McCartney – ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

Thandie Newton In Stella McCartney - 'Half of a Yellow Sun' Toronto International Film Festival Premiere

Thandie Newton attended the ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ premiere during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival held at the Winter Garden Theatre on Sunday in Toronto, Canada, where she announced that she is pregnant with her third child.

Unlike fellow Brit Kate Winslet, who is in full bloom, Thandie is yet to show, or her Stella McCartney black-and-white wave colour-block sheath dress is doing an amazing job of concealing her baby bump.

Stella McCartney black ankle-strap platform shoes with a Stella McCartney gold clutch and diamond earrings accessorized her look.

The stylish mum-to-be wore her hair back in a slick bun, with her usual makeup routine of a soft and neutral colour palette providing the finishing touch.

You can buy Thandie’s Stella McCartney dress from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
