Milla Jovovich In Armani Privé – 2012 DreamBall Gala

Milla Jovovich took to the red carpet at Cipriani 42nd Street to attend the 2012 DreamBall Gala in New York City yesterday evening.

The ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ actress glided down the red carpet wearing an Armani Privé Spring 2012 gown.

Her silk strapless gown with a fitted bodice and voluminous skirt may be from the Spring 2012 collection, but the silver, green and black abstract reptilian-print gown is perfect for Fall.

A big gown needs a big personality and Milla is just the woman for the job.

She styled her look with green chain-accented earrings (which cheapen the look) and a black satin clutch.

Wavy side-swept locks and a shimmering nude lip colour completed her look.

Olivia Munn In Armani Privé – HBO’s 2012 Emmy Awards Post Awards Reception

Olivia Munn attended 2012 Emmy Awards Post Awards Reception in West Hollywood, California on Sunday evening.

The ‘Magic Mike’ actress opted to wear a sexy one-of-a-kind Armani Prive dress.

Her black satin cap-sleeve dress with plunging neckline and a sheer panel isn’t my favourite look of the night.

I can’t really focus on much more than her boobage, plus I don’t like the awkward length.

A sparkling Judith Leiber clutch, a Neil Lane diamond necklace and sleek, straight locks complete her look.

Lena Headey In Armani Privé – 2012 Emmy Awards

You couldn’t help but take notice of Lena Headey on the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards on Sunday evening.

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress went against the nude and citrus trend opting for more drama wearing a black Armani Privé dress.

Her silk and lace spaghetti straps dress encrusted with black paillettes was styled with a black silk netting overlay, creating an ethereal effect.

Do you think this look is too dramatic for a sunny Sunday evening, or was she right to make an effort to stand out?

Kasia Smutniak In Armani Privé – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Girl of the moment Kasai Smutniak attended the premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ at the opening ceremony of the Venice Film Festival yesterday evening.

Kasia went simple for the occasion, wearing a sleek red long-sleeved Armani Privé gown.

Covered from the front, Kasia flashed a hint of skin via a low reverse V-neck, which shows off her sleek chignon – as well as her small neck tattoo.

The Polish actress opted to go clutchless, accessorizing with small studs and a large cocktail ring.

You may have a touch of déjà vu when it comes to this look. That’s because Uma Thurman wore a slightly modified version of this gown to the Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony back in May 2011.

Are you a fan of this simple look, or were you wishing for a bit more excitement?

Kate Beckinsale In Armani Privé – ‘Total Recall’ LA Premiere

Kate Beckinsale went for a totally different look on the red carpet yesterday evening for the ‘Total Recall’ LA premiere.

Known for her love of frothy girlie glam, she opted for an Armani Privé Spring 2012 reptilian gown.

I love this dramatic look for Kate.

The strapless gown with a sculptural detail at the front and back looked like a python had snaked itself around her perfect figure, with the green hue popping against the dark background making her stand out on a packed red carpet.

I would’ve loved Kate to have opted for a slicked-back do instead of this braided updo with loose tendrils. Kohl-rimmed eyes would’ve also played up the dark mysterious nature of her gown.

Under her gorgeous gown she wore Brian Atwood black satin ‘Hamper’ pumps plus she added Lorraine Schwartz black diamond-drop earrings and a white-and-black diamond band ring completed her look.

I have a feeling this might be a marmite gown.

Do you love it or hate it?

Armani Privé Fall 2012

After the circus that surrounded the previous show, it was a delight to enter the serene environment of the Armani Prive Fall 2012 show.

The invitation was a degrade daybreak mix of blue, lilac, mauve and pink, which is exactly what we saw on the runway.

For the first part of the presentation we marvelled at the designer’s signature architectural silhouette. Impeccably well tailored blazers, Shantung silk choker jackets and wool overcoats were either paired with luxurious silk wide leg pants or silk velvet pants.

We also saw vests with wrap-around velvet and silk trimmed skirts, ombre and colour-block coats and plenty of trouser suits before we moved seamlessly onto eveningwear as the sun set in the backdrop.

My heart skipped several beats when look 28 took to the runway. A strapless gown embroidered with pink rhinestone and beads must have a red-carpet moment. Like a few other pieces in the evening portion of the show, this dress was styled with a bead veil.

As someone who is obsessed with gowns, you’ll be surprised to learn that my favourite look from this collection was a black beaded jumpsuit with touches of blue and pink.

There was plenty more sparkle from the evening gowns which were accented with Swarovski crystals plus there were some muted classic black velvet numbers. The question now is which one will Cate Blanchett chose?

Accessories included Philip Treacy’s black velvet hats, feathery fascinators, pointed flats, t-bar sandals and an array of clutches.

Front Row: Zoe Saldana, Sophia Loren, Michelle Yeoh, Shailene Woodley, Isabelle Huppert and Leslie Mann

Who I Would Like To See Wearing This Collection: Zoe Saldana, Fan Bingbing, Florence Welch, Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Carey Mulligan and Michelle Yeoh

Front Row @ Armani Privé Fall 2012

The Armani Privé Fall 2012 show drew a sophisticated set of A-List celebs, as you would expect.

Leslie Mann: The actress, who attended the Chanel show earlier in the day, did a complete 180. Looking forgettable at Chanel, she wowed at Armani. With her hair swept to one side, the glamazon looked outstanding wearing an Armani LBD with a handkerchief hemline.

Zoe Saldana: It’s always a delight to see Zoe during fashion week. Looking impeccable from head-to-toe, the actress wore a shimmering coral Giorgio Armani Fall 2012 halter dress which she styled with black accessories. I have already picked out my Prive wish list for her.

Shailene Woodley: The ‘Descendants’ actress attended her first Couture runway show. She kept her look simple wearing an Armani Resort 2013 ivory ¾-sleeve jacket with black pants.
