Elizabeth Banks In Alexander McQueen – 2014 Breeders’ Cup World Championship

Elizabeth Banks In Alexander McQueen Resort 2015 - 2014 Breeders' Cup World Championship

Before ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1′ world premiere in London next Monday, Elizabeth Banks attended the 2014 Breeders’ Cup World Championships held at Santa Anita Park on Saturday (November 1) in Arcadia, California.

She wore her favourite designer, Alexander McQueen, selecting a look from the Resort 2015 collection.

As you know, I have loved Elizabeth Banks since time began, but I am terribly disappointed by the styling of this black and white printed frock with blue embroidery.

Firstly, I wish she’d taken a cue from the look book, opting for lapis-blue accessories, and a belt would’ve helped elevate the look, but honestly I think the biggest culprits here are the heavy suede pumps – oh, and the hat.

No and no.

Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen – ‘The Theory Of Everything’ LA Premiere

Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen - ‘The Theory Of Everything’ LA Premiere

Eddie Redmayne joined co-star Felicity Jones on the red carpet for the ‘The Theory Of Everything’ premiere held at AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Tuesday (October 28) in Beverly Hills, California.

The handsome British actor wore a navy-blue Alexander McQueen suit, opting for a smart plaid McQueen tie instead of the brand’s signature skull print.

It’s almost impossible not to be struck by the sharp tailoring, but it’s the luxurious sheen that elevates this look into suave status.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – The President Of The Republic Of Singapore’s State Visit To The UK

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen - The President Of The Republic Of Singapore's State Visit To The UK

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge made her first public appearance since announcing she was pregnant with her second child this afternoon (October 21).

The Duchess, husband Prince William and the Queen welcomed the president of Singapore to the UK for his state visit at Horse Guards Parade in London, England.

The mum-to-be wore a very elegant Alexander McQueen grey Princes of Wales check coat dress that hid all signs of a baby bump.

A smart Jane Taylor fascinator, black Prada pumps and a black suede Jenny Packham ‘Roxy’ clutch from the Fall 2014 collection accessorized her look.

The only thing that is a change from the norm here, is the simple ponytail she sported with her event appropriate look.

Amal Alamuddin In Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen & Giambattista Valli Couture – Wedding Weekend

Amal Alamuddin In Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen & Giambattista Valli Couture - Wedding Weekend

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s wedding took place this weekend in Venice, Italy (where the couple met), with many celebrity guests in attendance plus American Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, who has missed part of Paris Fashion Week to attend the nuptials.

While we wait for the exclusive images of the wedding in Vogue, here are the pictures of Amal showcasing her chic style upon her arrival, at the rehearsal dinner and at the post-wedding brunch.

Arrival: Her first look on Friday (September 26) was a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 black and white striped ankle-length dress. I love that she wore an Italian brand for her arrival, and the classic colour combo which doesn’t scream for attention despite the fact that all eyes are on her. Bow-front Dolce & Gabbana slingbacks were the perfect complement to her ladylike ensemble along with her gold Dolce & Gabbana earrings. You may remember that Olivia Wilde wore this same dress back in March 2013.

Rehearsal Dinner: For the rehearsal dinner later that same evening she opted for something a lot more dramatic, wearing an Alexander McQueen Resort 2011 red gown with a black brush-stroke print and rise-and-fall hemline. If all eyes weren’t already on her, they certainly would’ve been on this occasion. Styling the look with a fiery red lip, I wish she’d been as bold with the shoe selection. If you’re having a slight case of déjà vu, that’s because Michelle Obama wore the same dress with a full skirt to a state dinner back in 2011.

Post-Wedding Brunch: By the time we next saw Amal on Sunday afternoon (September 28), she was Mrs Clooney. She stepped out for brunch wearing a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture look which once again had a rise-and-fall hemline, showing off what I’m now discovering is her best asset – her legs. The beautiful ivory lace macramé dress with colourful red embroidery was styled with the same metallic-gold pumps we saw on the runway.

Are you developing a style crush?

My favourite look here is the Dolce & Gabbana. While I love the Giambattista Valli Couture frock, a part of me thinks it may have perhaps been too short for a brunch.

Vicki Zhao 赵薇 In Alberta Ferretti & Alexander McQueen – ‘Dearest’ Press Conference & Premiere

Vicki Zhao In Alberta Ferretti & Alexander McQueen - 'Dearest' Press Conference & Premiere

Vicki Zhao attended the press conference and premiere of her latest project, ‘Dearest’, in China on Tuesday (September 23).

Press Conference: The actress wore a beautiful Alberta Ferretti Resort 2015 lavender frock enriched with a colourful sequin pattern, which she styled with Tasaki jewelry and a pair of gorgeous ruby Louboutin pumps. I’m glad she didn’t let us down in the footwear department; this vibrant look deserved a vivid shoe.

Premiere: Perhaps using up her colour quota at the press conference, her premiere look was void of colour. Keeping it simple and chic, the actress wore a black Alexander McQueen mini dress styled with gold Louboutin pumps and a selection of Pomellato jewels. The accessories, including the metal belt, prevent this from being a snooze.
