ABC Family’s 2015 Upfront Presentation

ASHLEY BENSON, TROIAN BELISSARIO, LUCY HALE, SHAY MITCHELL (Pretty Little Liars)

The girls of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ were at ABC Family’s upfront event held on Tuesday (April 14) at SIR Stage 37 in New York City, where the pretty young things coordinated beautifully in black and white.

Ashley Benson: Bold aqua gemstone earrings and metallic pumps ignited her modern A.L.C. Spring 2015 white jumpsuit with side cutouts that combined mannish lines with feminine detail. Shame about the creases.

Troian Bellisario: The deep plunge in Troian’s black dress assured that the girly baby-doll silhouette and twirl skirt was all grown up, too. That said, the frock would have benefited from sassier styling. As presented, the long pendant necklace and pattern pumps fell flat.

Lucy Hale: Also opting for an all-black ensemble, Lucy wore an Elizabeth and James ruffled top and pencil skirt paired with strappy sandals. I loved this look for its effortless simplicity and flirty sophistication, which was only enhanced by her cute crimped bob and radiant rose-toned makeup.

Shay Mitchell: Splitting the difference, Shay selected a black and white look that also worked the masculine-feminine angle with a sexy AQ/AQ plunge bodysuit and Sass & Bide wide-leg trousers, all enhanced with an embellished belt.

I love the pop of Ashley’s earrings, but Lucy’s ensemble won me over for its chic simplicity. Which look caught your eye?

Jessica Alba In Ralph Lauren, A.L.C. & Alice + Olivia – ‘The Rachael Ray Show’

Jessica Alba In Ralph Lauren, ALC & Alice + Olivia - ‘The Rachael Ray Show’

Jessica Alba was spotted out in New York City headed to a studio to tape her guest appearance on ‘The Rachael Ray Show’ on Tuesday (April 14).

Inspired by the current season, the actress wore a nautical look with a difference, styling her Ralph Lauren blazer and A.L.C. Breton striped top with eye-popping Alice + Olivia high-waist, wide-leg trousers.

I’m totally captivated by the arresting coral hue, which speaks volumes about her bold sense of style.

I have a feeling these trousers may not go down too well, but the only thing I would change about this look are the platform black satin Prada platform sandals.

PALEYFEST LA Red Carpet Roundup

PALEYFEST LA Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the other looks taking to the red carpet during PALEYFEST LA this weekend.

Katie Cassidy: Stripes seem to be everywhere at the moment, and the ‘Arrow’ star fully embraces the trend here wearing a Cushnie et Ochs neoprene strapless dress from the Spring 2015 collection which of course features a signature cut-out. I perhaps would’ve been more excited about this look with a different style of shoe.

Sarah Paulson: The ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ star didn’t let me down in the shoe department opting for a striking red pointy Louis Vuitton pair which gave an instant lift to her A.L.C. ‘Noel’ black and white printed Pre-Fall 2015 frock. A Jennifer Fisher bracelet and Jimmy Choo ‘Ciggy’ clutch help round out a pitch perfect look.

Sofia Vergara: We all know that the ‘Modern Family’ actress has a gorgeous figure and the only man who has enhanced it further is Roland Mouret. Her body-con black ‘Swangrove’ dress with a refreshing – for her – high neckline sees her side step the norm. The look was styled with an Amanda Wakeley clutch and Charlotte Olympia ‘Octavia’ sandals.

Sarah Hyland attended The Paley Center for Media’s 32nd Annual PALEYFEST LA – ‘Modern Family’ event held at the Dolby Theatre on Friday (March 14) in Hollywood, California.

With spring most definitely in her step, Sarah wore an A.L.C. look featuring a surreptitiously cut crop top and a feminine textured a-line skirt.

Delightfully flavoursome and steeped with modern mannerisms, the styling – which included a Jimmy Choo ‘Cayla snake clutch decorated with colourful stones and Bionda Castana ‘Leandra’ mint green pumps – upholds her elegant poise.

Julianne Hough In Self-Portrait, A.L.C. & Monique Lhuillier – ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Promotion

Julianne Hough In Self-Portrait, ALC & Monique Lhuillier - 'Dancing With The Stars' Promotion

Julianne Hough had a very busy week promoting the latest series of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ giving us three different looks.

Good Morning America: The dancer’s first look was a Self-Portrait Pre-Fall 2015 checkered organza dress which was perhaps too sugary for Julianna, as the dress gave off a distinct school uniform vibe even though she tried to toughen up the look with Eva Fehren stud earrings.

Extra: Julianne’s second look was preferable. The look consisted of an A.L.C. semi-sheer blouse which brings a distinctly feminine take on this mannish offering. Styled with a gorgeous pair of Kurt Geiger ‘Ellen’ snakeskin pumps, nothing else was needed to perfect this look.

NYSE Closing Bell: Going back to uber girlie, Julianne wore a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2015 nude dress with tri-colour lace embroidery for a touch of intriguing flare. Maroon pumps would’ve been an interesting option, but she decided upon nude Giuseppe Zanotti pumps, with the maroon complement coming from the lip.

Look two is my favourite, which captures your eye?

Emma Watson In A.L.C. – International Women’s Day

Emma Watson In ALC  - International Women’s Day

UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson took part in a Q&A commemorating International Women’s Day held at the Facebook headquarters in London, England, on Sunday (March 8).

Keeping it simple, the British actress wore an A.L.C. Fall 2015 look.

I love how her cropped trousers resuscitate the culottes style with a tailored edge while the black and white check shirt escalates her outfit with insouciant elegance while keeping the look youthful and approachable.

I’m having a shoe lust day, as her Purified ankle-strap pumps instantly caught my attention.
