Anna Kendrick In Alice + Olivia & J. Mendel – ‘The Last 5 Years’ & ‘Cake’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Anna Kendrick In Alice + Olivia & J Mendel -  'The Last 5 Years' & 'Cake' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Anna Kendrick attended the premieres of the films ‘The Last 5 Years’ and ‘Cake’ on September 7 and 8 at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

Look 1: A black leather crop top and gray leather skirt from Alice + Olivia are a fun and youthful approach to the typical all black leather look, and the thick-strapped pumps were the perfect shoe option for the ensemble. Subtle makeup and long, loose curls keep things fresh.

Look 2: A J. Mendel blush multi-colored high V neck sleeveless dress with an a-line skirt is fun and flirty, and the patent nude pumps, Edie Parker ‘Minnie’ clutch and simple EF Collection earrings are the perfect accessories.

Kate Beckinsale In Alice + Olivia – ‘The Face Of An Angel’ TIFF World Premiere Party

Kate Beckinsale In Alice + Olivia - 'The Face Of An Angel' TIFF World Premiere Party

Kate Beckinsale continued her chic streak at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, attending the world premiere party for ‘The Face of an Angel’ hosted by Soho House Toronto in Canada on Saturday (September 6).

After her gorgeous turn at the film’s premiere earlier in the day, she took a red-hot turn in an on-trend Alice + Olivia ruby cropped top and front-slit pencil skirt.

Still wearing what looked to be her nude Brian Atwood sandals from her earlier outing, she kept the rest of the styling minimalistic, which actually heightened the impact and appeal of the look.

Her signature ponytail did make a comeback; we couldn’t expect it to stay gone for long.

The colour was so striking here, as is Kate’s radiantly adorable smile, but I’m still so taken by her premiere look.

Priyanka Chopra In Alice + Olivia & Gauri and Nainika – ‘Mary Kom’ 2014 Toronto Film Festival

Priyanka Chopra In Alice + Olivia & Gauri and Nainika - 'Mary Kom' 2014 Toronto Film Festival

Priyanka Chopra was promoting her latest movie, ‘Mary Kom’, during the 2014 Toronto Film Festival yesterday (September 4) in Toronto, Canada.

Press Conference: Her first look of the day was a sweet LBD by Alice + Olivia accented with a leather waistband. I love the asymmetrical hemline, which prevents this look from being too humdrum, along with the Dior metallic pumps, beehive ‘do and flaming matte-red lip. Strangely, for a split second I thought she was Mila Kunis.

Premiere: Later that same evening, she donned a Gauri and Nainika gown tailored with asymmetrical lines and cut-out detailing in high-contrast black and white for a punch of classic appeal. She couldn’t look more beautiful if she tried. I’m swept away by the elegance and styling of this look.

Victoria Justice In Alice + Olivia & LUBLU Kira Plastinina – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Victoria Justice In LUBLU Kira Plastinina - 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Victoria Justice took to the red carpet of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA, held at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday (August 24).

In more cropped-top news, she trotted out a structured white Alice + Olivia tube top, which proved a mere canvas for the rest of her look that centered on a LUBLU Kira Plastinina one-of-a-kind creation. It was nothing if not a head-turner of a design, with the ruffled mullet skirt likewise demonstrating a posh porcupine-esque nature.

The simplicity of the monochromatic colour scheme and her chicly braided updo kept the look on the right track.

Delivering another punch of attitude was that fuchsia lip and her Edie Parker ‘Flavia’ neon-yellow message clutch, which immediately made me think of the Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon #Hashtag sketch.

Perhaps we should call this look ‘sophisti-kitsch.’

I’m surprised I find myself actually liking the spirited ensemble, though, given my usual feeling about high-low skirts. She wears it well—plus she’s young, this is fun, and this is the style hall-pass that is the VMAs.

Sarah Hyland In Alice + Olivia – Audi Celebrates Emmys’ Week 2014

Sarah Hyland In Alice + Olivia - Audi Celebrates Emmys' Week 2014

Sarah Hyland attended the Audi Emmys Week celebration at Cecconi’s Restaurant on Thursday (August 21) in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Modern Family’ actress opted to add another dimension to her Alice + Olivia sleek black and white romper – which could easily be confused as separates – by opening up the V neckline to reveal her black lace bra.

Not always a fan of bra-revealing looks, I have to say I adore this look. It’s grown up without a feeling of desperately trying too hard, sexy without being trashy, plus modern and chic.

Styled with a purposely messy side-swept ponytail, smouldering eye makeup and glossy nude lips, she completed her look with open-toe sandals with a sheer base and glittering ankle-strap Jimmy Choo ‘Lust’ sandals which leave me firmly on the fence.
