Kerry Washington In Alexander McQueen – 2014 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Program

Kerry Washington In Alexander McQueen - 2014 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Program

Kerry Washington hosted the 2014 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Program held at The Glasshouses on Monday (September 15) in New York City.

Working a sexier look than we are used to from the ‘Scandal’ star, she wore a green leather Alexander McQueen Resort 2015 strapless bustier dress.

With her purple purse the focus of this look, she complemented the arm candy with matching Casadei pumps.

While I love the complementary eye makeup and the crinkle effect of the leather, I feel like this dress is perhaps missing a belt.

Should Kerry have belted this look?

FYI: Kerry designed the purse for the Allstate Foundation. The foundation was set up to help combat domestic violence and financial abuse. Read more about it here.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick look at the dapper gents attending New York and Toronto Film Festival premieres this week.

Douglas Booth: The handsome continues to prove why we often hand him a best dressed title each time he steps out on the red carpet. With navy being the colour of the moment in menswear, the actor sets his own pace opting for a green Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit styled with an Armani timepiece to the ‘Riot Club’ Toronto Film Festival premiere.

Rob Pattinson: The British actor was also staying true to his favourite brand: Gucci. I do love it when guys do something a bit different. Here Rob styles his navy notch-lapel two-button Marseille suit with a navy evening shirt and brown leather lace-ups while attending the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of ‘Maps Of The Stars’ on Tuesday (September 9). The colours couldn’t be more perfect as we slowly move towards autumn and the suit, as always, was a perfect fit. The usual dishevelment gave way to sleeker grooming, so this gets a thumbs up all round from me.

Brit Marling In Proenza Schouler & Alexander McQueen – ‘The Keeping Room’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Brit Marling In Proenza Schouler & Alexander McQueen - 'The Keeping Room' Toronto  Film Festival Premiere

Brit Marling attended the premiere of ‘The Keeping Room’ at The Elgin on Monday (September 8) during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

Looking to the archives for sartorial inspiration, the actress cut a dramatic profile in an Alexander McQueen Spring 2007 ivory high-waist skirt, emblazoned with a striking black swallow print.

Simplifying the styling of the bird-and-branch piece from its theatrical and historical runway incarnation, she modernized this statement McQueen design with a Proenza Schouler on-trend black crop top.

Brian Atwood heels and a Lee Savage mini clutch accessorized the ensemble, yet it was her beauty approach that really provided the heightened sense of glamour with her glossy blonde locks and intense oxblood-red lip.

Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen & Burberry – HFPA & InStyle’s 2014 TIFF Celebration & ‘Theory of Everything’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen & Burberry -  HFPA & InStyle's 2014 TIFF Celebration & 'Theory of Everything'  Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Eddie Redmayne attended the HFPA & InStyle’s 2014 TIFF Celebration on September 6 and the premiere of the film ‘The Theory of Everything’ on September 7 at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

Party: An Alexander McQueen black and cream Prince of Wales check suit worn with a navy tie is a handsome, classic look, and the addition of the grey suede tassel slippers offers the perfect dash of fashion-forward whimsy.

Premiere: A teal, double-breasted Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 suit with a navy tie and pocket square is a sharp color combination, and classic patent shoes complete the modern look. I love how much fun Eddie has with fashion–he knows fashion isn’t only a woman’s game.

Ashley Greene In Alexander McQueen – ‘Burying The Ex’ Venice Film Festival Photocall

Ashley Greene In Alexander McQueen - 'Burying The Ex' Venice Film Festival Photocall

Ashley Greene is the latest celebrity to descend on Venice Film Festival, where she is promoting her latest movie, ‘Burying The Ex’.

She attended a photocall yesterday afternoon (September 4) wearing an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 look.

I’m delighted that her navy and white top and sharp navy trousered look isn’t nude in colour or aging in style.

I like how the top with a white waterfall layer gives a fresh take on a classic style.
