Kerry Washington Promotes ‘Django Unchained’ In New York City

Kerry Washington was a busy girl promoting her new film, Django Unchained, in New York City this past week. Despite the hectic schedule, she managed to look fresh, energized and pulled-together for every appearance.

Jay Leno: Sporting a fabulous black Roksanda Ilinic dress, Jean-Michel Cazabat ‘Elba’ heels, and Joan Hornig earrings, the actress amps up the look with an eye-catching animal-print belt by Celine. She definitely gives a delightful new spin to the little black dress.

The Today Show: Wearing a slightly Kimono-style Dolce & Gabbana coat with just a hint of a Giambattista Valli pink dress showing at the hemlines, Kerry’s ladylike look for her appearance on The Today Show was pitch perfect. Wavy hair and Nicholas Kirkwood patterned platform pumps and House of Lavande earrings completed her ensemble.

BET’s ‘106 & Park’: Proving that a woman really can go from prim-and-proper to sexy-and-chic – all in the same day – Kerry traded in the feminine Dolce & Gabbana coat for a rocking A.L.C. dress for her 106 & Park appearance. She teamed her leather frock with nude Christian Louboutin shoes, Sydney Evan and Arial Gordon necklaces plus House of Lavande earrings to give her hip look the right amount of attitude.

Olivia Wilde In A.L.C. – ‘Django Unchained’ New York Premiere

In the absence of Kerry Washington, we had to turn to Olivia Wilde for eye candy on the red carpet last night for the ‘Django Unchained’ New York premiere.

Unfortunately there wasn’t enough for me to get excited about, and this is coming from someone who has never met a jumpsuit she didn’t love, own or desire.

Her A.L.C. jumpsuit does have a sexy twist with a plunging neckline, but she’s not really selling this look to me.

Picture Kristen Stewart, Rihanna or Karolina Kurkova in this look and we have one hot red carpet look. What do they have that Olivia is lacking? Attitude.

Blue velvet Gio Dev pumps, a selection of necklaces and a black clutch accessorized her menswear-inspired look.

Kristen Stewart In A.L.C. & Juicy Couture – The Variety Studio: Awards Edition Event

Kristen Stewart attended The Variety Studio: Awards Edition event held at a private residence in LA on Wednesday.

Wearing a laidback look, I’m sure the best way to describe this look is the ‘real Kristen’ as she no doubt has dress fatigue following her ‘Twilight’ promo tour.

Even her stylist has admitted that she has to beg the young actress to dress up (which comes as no great shock), especially in high-heeled shoes, so I’m not surprised to see Kristen wearing these Cole Haan monkstrap shoes.

The rest of her look features a sheer white A.L.C. v-neck tee with Juicy Couture ‘Eton’ plaid pants, which feature the same print we saw on Carly Rae Jepsen’s Juicy Couture look a few months ago.

I don’t love the look. Had this been during the Twilight tour, I’m sure she would’ve worn heels and hopefully a better top.

Lord knows why she loves revealing her black bra via her white tee. I find that part of her look tacky.

ShoeMint 1 Year Anniversary Brunch

Rachel Bilson and stylist Nicole Chavez hosted an intimate brunch at Laurel Hardware in West Hollywood to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of ShoeMint.

Guests included Lauren Conrad and Rachel’s ‘Hart of Dixie’ co-star, Jaime King.

Lauren Conrad: The former ‘The Hills’ star was predictable as ever, wearing a lace fit-and-flare mini dress with nude pumps. Whilst it’s a very familiar one-note look, she does look uber cute as always.

Jaime King: The actress wore a look by one of her favourite designers – Jason Wu. A black printed blouse with a leather collar and placket was styled with a black leather skirt and sexy black sandals.

Rachel Bilson: The petite star wore an A.L.C. ikat printed black-collar dress. Her flowing nutmeg-and-navy dress was styled with a simple black Vanessa Bruno blazer and I’m sure she’s wearing some ShoeMint heels too.

Kristen Stewart In A.L.C. – ‘On The Road’ New York Screening

Taking a break from her ‘Twilight’ duties, Kristen Stewart was in New York City last night promoting her other movie, ‘On tThe Road’.

Opting to wear all black again, the actress wore another A.L.C. ‘Booth’ dress from the Fall 2012 collection.

Her fitted black fitted stretch- leather, three-quarter- sleeve, band collar dress features wool sleeves and a wool yoke.

Upping her shoe game from the last few outings, the actress selected a pair of Barbara Biui biker sandals.

A half- up, half- updown hairstyle and heavy black eye makeup completed the look.

Do you love the makeup or is it too heavy-handed?

Kristen Stewart In A.L.C. – Late Show with Jimmy Fallon

Kristen Stewart’s third guest appearance of the day on Wednesday was at the ‘Late Show with Jimmy Fallon’.

Opting to wear head-to-toe black, she was all smiles as she took to the studio wearing an A.L.C. Spring 2013 dress.

The black ¾-length sleeve dress with a flared skirt meets her favoured way-above-the-knee quota.

Proving that she has more than one pair of black pumps, the actress styled her look with Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ heels on this occasion.

Smoothing out her wavy tresses from her earlier chat show appearances, the actress opted for a dramatic deep smoky eye on this occasion.

Kristen Stewart In Balenciaga & A.L.C. – ‘On The Road’ New York Screening

Kristen Stewart went for a simple black and white silhouette for a screening of ‘On The Road’ in New York.

For the event, the actress and British Vogue cover star wore a pair of A.L.C ‘Jude’ cropped wool-twill trousers and a Balenciaga shirt.

Kristen’s been looking far more polished of late. I’m loving the updo and smokey eye in addition to her simple-with-an-edge outfit.

The necklace works well too, as do the Jimmy Choo ‘Taste’ sandals.

What do you think of her look?
