Max Mara Event Celebrates Amy Adams As The Face Of The Autumn Winter 2014 Accessories Campaign

Max Mara

Amy Adams was unveiled as the new face of the Max Mara Autumn Winter 2014 Accessories Campaign on Tuesday (July 15) at the roof of the Viceroy Hotel in New York City.

Amy Adams: The actress wore a red Max Mara Signature dress made ultimately flattering with gathered pleating across the bodice. Styling the look with a matching Max Mara clutch, she turned up the heat with a pair of floral silk Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Follies’ pumps.

Miranda Kerr: The Australian model wore chic separates, which would also make for a great loungewear set, from Sportmax’s Spring 2014 collection, pairing a nude silk tank and polka-dot pants styled with nude sandals and a bold red contrasting lip.

Toni Collette: Pretty in pink, the Australian actress appears to be returning to a much softer look, and this was very much the case when stepping on to the red carpet wearing a Max Mara silk chiffon dress featuring a gathered detail on the shoulder. Styled with nude sandals and a Louis Vuitton gold ‘Limelight’ clutch, beauty-wise she opted for neutral makeup and a contrasting teal-blue nail polish. The colour of the clutch doesn’t work for me but everything else is perfect.

Who Wore Altuzarra Better…Lupita Nyong’o or Toni Collette?

During Lupita Nyong’o’s epic awards season run, the actress wore an Altuzarra ‘Marlene’ Pre-Fall 2014 pale-blue frock styled with a Dior Fine Jewelry ‘Pre Catelan’ yellow-gold, diamond and chalcedony ring and matching earrings, plus a divine pair of Bruno Magli lilac patent-leather ‘Olabisi’ pumps.

One of the rare non-bold-coloured non-printed pieces we saw from her during this time.

Toni Collette wore the same dress in black while attending ‘The Realistic Joneses’ opening night after-party, which she styled with a plexiglass clutch and a statement necklace.

Preferring both the styling and the colour, Lupita wins for me.

Toni Collette In Naeem Khan – ‘A Long Way Down’ New York Premiere

Toni Collette In Naeem Khan - 'A Long Way Down' New York Premiere

Toni Collette attended the ‘A Long Way Down’ New York Premiere held at the City Cinemas 123 on Monday (June 30) in New York City.

I almost didn’t recognise her since she wasn’t wearing Proenza Schouler for a rare change.

On this occasion she opted for something very feminine, donning a Naeem Khan Spring 2014 black and white peasant blouse with a white taffeta skirt.

As beautiful as the look is, The look feels really off for this occasion.

I see this on the red carpet for a Disney LA premiere on a midsummer’s afternoon, or a luncheon at the Chateau Marmont. It doesn’t work as a New York premiere look for me.

Also, the styling is a bit all over the place for me.

The shoes are too busy, considering the detail on the top, and the same applies to the Ranjana Khan cuffs, but it’s the metallic-gold clutch which is the real head scratcher for me here.

It’s a head-to-toe no from me.

Toni Collette In Proenza Schouler – 12th Annual Women Of Concern Awards

Toni Collette In Proenza Schouler - 12th Annual Women Of Concern Awards

Toni Collette attended the 12th ‘Annual Women Of Concern’ awards held at The Pierre Ballroom on Tuesday (June 24) in New York City.

The Australian actress continues to be the unlikely ambassador for Proenza Schouler (with all due respect), donning an asymmetrical wrap-front construction high-neck dress from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

Opting to keep things simple and allowing the beautifully precise silhouette to stay in focus, she styled the look with nude sandals and a single gold bracelet.

Toni Collette In Sally LaPointe & Lie Sang Bong – 2014 Drama Desk Awards Nominees Reception

Toni Collette In Sally LaPointe & Lie Sang Bong - 2014 Drama Desk Awards Nominees Reception

Toni Collette attended the 2014 Drama Desk Awards Nominees Reception held at Essex House on Wednesday (May 7) in New York City.

Continuing her edgier take on red carpet dressing, the Australian actress wore a blush silk-organza wrap-around Sally LaPointe Spring 2014 top with a pleated leather and silk skirt from the designer often referred to as the ‘Korean McQueen’, Lie Sang Bong.

The top and skirt are an interesting combination, mostly because the look ends up feeling uncannily similar to the Proenza Schouler dress she wore recently.

Her ivory and blush Gio Diev for Sally LaPointe ankle boots are a big no no for me, bringing down a perfectly good look in one fell swoop.
