Red Carpet Fashion Awards

BDOTW 3 August 2014

Nicola Peltz was your best dressed this week as her orange Prada gown and white Dior dress took the prizes for first and second best, respectively.

This was a surprise for me as the majority of the comments on her Prada gown, which saw her end her tour with a bang, weren’t all that favourable.

My choice was a very easy one: Vera Farmiga in Peter Pilotto. From the dress itself, with the colour and embellishments, to the styling, this was an unexpected, yet fashionable home run for Vera.

Colin Firth was the overall winner for the guys this week for his Dolce & Gabbana navy suit styled with geek-chic glasses.

Vera Farmiga In Peter Pilotto - Entertainment Weekly's Annual Comic-Con Celebration
There was no chance of missing Vera Farmiga, as she made a red-haute entrance at ‘Playboy’ and A&E’s ‘Bates Motel’ party on Friday (July 25), hosted during Comic-Con International 2014 in San Diego, California.

Matching her Peter Pilotto Fall 2014 dress to the red carpet and to her crimson lip, the actress embraced the designer’s exuberant spirit of excess in the body-con, boat-neck dress with magenta colour-block paneling and a figure-flattering wrap waist.

Rows and rows of oversized coloured gemstones decorated the front of the frock, adding more radiance to the look.

I do love how she styled the dynamic dress more quietly with a demure, matching Orton clutch and Kurt Geiger ‘Bond’ ballet-pink pumps. No need to compete with such a statement.

It could have gone so wrong, but Vera is working this dress like a star. Outstanding or overdone?

Vera Farmiga In Stella McCartney - 2014 Tony Awards

Vera Farmiga attended the 68th Annual Tony Awards held at Radio City Music Hall on Saturday (June 8) in New York City.

The actress wore a Stella McCartney body-skimming design that is given added allure with sheer-panel detailing at the shoulders and waist, giving the look a waist-narrowing effect.

Her elegant gown was styled with a black clutch and Fred Leighton jewels, including old-mine diamond star earrings and a 19th century diamond and gemstone bangle bracelet.

A pretty coral lip and side-swept wavy tresses completed her look.

Vera Farmiga In Prada - 'Bates Motels' Season 2 PremiereVera Farmiga returned to the red carpet for the premiere party of A&E’s Season 2 of ‘Bates Motel’ and the series premiere of ‘Those Who Kill,’ held at Warwick in Hollywood, California on Wednesday (February 26).

Reflecting the drama of the show, the actress wore a pretty red Prada silk chiffon pleated dress, enriched with sparkling crystal embroidery at the bodice and waist.

She styled the look quite well with an Emm Kuo metallic snakeskin, raw blacklip shell and mother-of-pearl ‘Kaiss’ minaudiére clutch with gold metal accents. Thankfully, gold and black fishnet pumps took the place of a standard black pair.

An edgy, sharply angled bob and a light rouge lip rounded out this entrance that didn’t require much in the way of jewelry, given the frock’s embellishment and the gloss of the handbag.

Prada looks tend to be hit or miss on the red carpet. How does this one rank?

Vera Farmiga In Theyskens' Theory - 2013 Emmy Awards

Vera Farmiga was one of the few who wore black at the 2013 Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday.

The actress donned a custom Theyskens’ Theory gown that had plenty of drama and volume – dare I say too much volume.

I was fascinated by the detailing, which included a leather-and-metal belt, leather panels, and a sexy open back that she styled with Fred Leighton jewels and a metallic box clutch. Under that skirt, she wore Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina Strass’ black satin pumps.

Yet more volume via her bouffant and a matte pink lip colour completed her look.

Is there too much going on or does she make it work?

Vera Farmiga In Calvin Klein - 'Bates Motel' Party

Vera Farmiga attended A&E’s ‘Bates Motel’ Party during Comic-Con 2013 held at Gang Kitchen on Saturday in San Diego, California.

The actress wore a Calvin Klein Spring 2013 black satin below-the-knee strapless frock with a gold frame outlining the sweetheart neckline and with a thicker sheer panel than the same dress presented on the runway.

Vera accessorized her look with Jimmy Choo ‘Lumina’ cream pumps enlivened with metallic-gold trims and a gold toe-cap, a Bottega Veneta black-and-cream clutch, plus a stack of arm candy, with a simple updo and a rouge lip colour providing the finishing touches.

It’s black again, but I find myself enamoured of the sophistication of this look.

Does it have a little too much polish for Comic-Con?
