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.

Nikki Reed In Alice + Olivia – 2014 Heineken US Open Kick Off Party

Nikki Reed In Alice + Olivia - 2014 Heineken US Open Kick Off Party

Nikki Reed attended the 2014 Heineken US Open kick-off party held at PH-D Rooftop Lounge at Dream Downtown on Thursday (August 21) in New York City alongside her former colleague Ashley Greene.

The actress opted for a girlie Alice + Olivia tiered shirt dress with a romantic butterfly print in a Fall-like maroon hue with a contrasting black velvet collar and placket.

I’m really missing a clutch here; however, she effortlessly styled the look with black strappy sandals and a bold red lip Rita Ora and Taylor Swift would be proud of.

Jessica Lowndes In Alice + Olivia – ‘The Prince’ LA Premiere

Jessica Lowndes In Alice + Olivia - 'The Prince' LA Premiere

Jessica Lowndes attended the premiere of ‘The Prince’ held at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres on Monday (August 18) in Hollywood, California.

Opting for a look which appears to be a sexy two-piece, the actress donned a black leather choker bustier dress with a daring slit from Alice + Olivia’s Resort 2015 collection.

Adding gold accessories, Jessica styled her look with a Kotur clutch and Kurt Geiger ‘Belgravia’ sandals, with a punchy pink lip and part-braided hairstyle rounding out her look.

I think she manages to look sexy without coming across as trying too hard. Would you agree?

Jessica Alba In Houghton, Osman, Alice + Olivia & Max Mara – ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ New York Promo Tour

Jessica Alba In Houghton, Osman, Alice + Olivia & Max Mara - 'Sin City A Dame To Kill For' New York Promo Tour

Jessica Alba was back on the East Coast, showcasing her effortless style on the streets of Manhattan on Tuesday (August 5) while out promoting her latest movie, ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’.

Look 1: First up, my favourite look: a heady mix of bright colours and prints. She donned a Houghton Fall 2014 black and white striped sleeveless crop top accented with black floral appliqués which complemented her drop-dead-gorgeous Kotur ‘Gilda’ black leaf and snakeskin sandals. But it’s the Osman Resort 2014 tangerine asymmetrical skirt which really steals the show here. The look was completed with a Christian Louboutin ‘Farida’ black and white snakeskin tote.

Look 2: Keeping the same Louboutin tote, Jessica’s second look further displayed her effortless chic style. She wore an Alice + Olivia ‘Richley’ blouse styled with a beautiful pair of Max Mara wide-leg trousers topped off with a lust-worthy Jennifer Fisher cuff. On second thoughts, this might just be my favourite of the two. They are both so top-to-toe perfect it’s hard to decide.

Can you pick a favourite?
