Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen – MTV Movie Awards 2014

Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen - MTV Movie Awards 2014Nicki Minaj slinked onto the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards 2014 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (April 13). And, in doing so, she gave me quite the shock of the night.

Rather than parading about in her unapologetically bizarro concoctions, the pint-sized rapper was rather subdued—at least by her standards—in a refined Alexander McQueen figure-scraping, black gown.

While the dress called attention to her hourglass curves, it did so demurely. The loudest shout in this look came from the Midas accessories, as she loaded up on the gold.

In addition to her Cleopatra necklace and earrings, she rocked the same McQueen arm cuffs that we previously saw on Sienna Miller earlier this year.

I have to say that I barely recognized the entertainer without her Rainbow-Brite fashion, nor her over-the-top Crayola makeup and platinum, bleach-blonde locks, which were replaced by sleek, dark Veronica Lake waves and the flick of a cat-eye.

Perhaps her cameo in ‘The Other Woman’ with Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton has softened her fashion sense, transforming the style chameleon into a more sophisticated, yet still-edgy vamp star.

Rebecca Hall In Alexander McQueen – ‘Transcendence’ LA Premiere

Rebecca Hall In Alexander McQueen - ‘Transcendence’ LA Premiere

Rebecca Hall attended the ‘Transcendence’ premiere held at the Regency Village Theatre on Thursday (April 10) in Westwood, California alongside Kate Mara.

The British actress wore a black Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 frock, with intricate beaded and jewelled embellishments elevating this floor-grazing short-sleeved gown.

No McQueen look would be complete without a punk clutch, which perfectly complements the detailing on her frock.

Edging up the look yet another notch, she styled her look with multi-stud earrings, which are effortlessly displayed thanks to her half-up, half-down swept-back ‘do.

Glossy lips and shimmering copper eye makeup rounded out her look.

BDOTW-worthy or just OK?

Andrew Garfield: Kicking his casualwear to the curb, the actor dressed to impress in an Alexander McQueen single-breasted, one-button black suit. The black-and-white plaid tie, white button-down shirt and black loafers only enhanced the crisp polish of the impeccably slim-fit look.

Jamie Foxx: Copping an intense bad-boy stare, the funny man relied on his go-to designer, Ozwald Boateng, for this sleek charcoal pinstripe suit, mixed with a dove-grey dress shirt and steely-hued tie. Perfectly tailored, this sartorial statement had plenty of grey area, but the styling was still on point.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better…Naomie Harris or Priyanka Chopra?

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better Naomie Harris or Priyanka Chopra

Naomie Harris stunned when she took to the red carpet for the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom royal premiere wearing an Alexander McQueen strapless gown with a peplum detail enriched with gold embellishments.

The British actress had such an epic run promoting this movie, with this gown being very much the highlight.

With such an amazing gown worn on a world stage for such a historical occasion, I was very surprised to see Priyanka Chopra wearing the same gown to the 2014 Idea FilmFare Awards the following month.

Despite how gorgeous she looked in the gown, Naomie wins this for me. She looked the more radiant for me.
