Carey Mulligan In Balenciaga – 2013 Met Gala

CareyMulligan2

Carey Mulligan joined a host of other bold names, as she stunned on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

‘The Great Gatsby’ actress interpreted the evening’s punk theme with an impressively smart flourish in her black Balenciaga dress that riffed on the style era’s obsession with safety pins.

The angular, cutout design was neither look-at-me or louche. But the oversized gold pin at the neck still spoke volumes.

Was it an homage to the uber-famous Versace safety-pin dress donned by Elizabeth Hurley in the ’90s? Perhaps.

Regardless, I have to say I love this tongue-in-cheek variation that’s simultaneously classic and cool-girl, amidst a sea of overwrought edge at tonight’s ball.

Carey slicked back her deeply side-parted blonde locks and wore a nude lip to complete this refined look.

Call it sophisticated, new-age punk.

Coach 3rd Annual Evening Of Cocktails And Shopping To Benefit The Children’s Defense Fund

Coach Event 1

A bright crop of starlets turned out for the third annual Coach cocktail party and shopping event to benefit the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by ‘Star Trek’ movie producer-director J.J. Abrams on the rooftop of his Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday. Coach clutches, handbags and totes proved to be the night’s hottest accessory, as many PYTs no doubt plucked up a new purse for their collections.

Chloe Sevigny: Always one to keep us guessing, the actress went for a rather girly approach in this printed Balenciaga dress that immediately had me wanting to fix that lopsided black bow at the waist. I also couldn’t get past the white tongue flap on those Balenciaga peep-toe shoes—or their mauve-purple colour that clashed with her coral-pink Coach clutch. An orange lippie proved another dissonant tone, although it matched the logo behind her.

Abigail Spencer: Donning a creamy DKNY Spring 2013 dress, the actress was chic and polished. She prevented sartorial boredom with a fuchsia handbag and melon-hued ankle-strap sandals. Loose waves and a glowing complexion finished off this breezy look.

Kate Mara: The ‘House of Cards’ star mixed masculine and feminine, showing a flash of skin in a Vena Cava sheer crop top with ruffled sleeve paired with black Parker peg pants and Brian Atwood’s ‘Wagner’ peep-toe heels. A Dannijo necklace was well-placed and added just the right amount of sparkle.

Cory Michael Smith In Balenciaga – ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ Broadway Opening Night

Cory Michael Smith In Balenciaga - ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ Broadway Opening Night

Cory Michael Smith joined Emilia Clarke on the red carpet yesterday evening for the after-party to celebrate the ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ Broadway opening night, held at The Edison Ballroom in New York City.

Oozing charm and good looks, it’s hard not to find yourself swooning over the actor in his Balenciaga suit.

We have questioned the fit and length of pants on many more-established Hollywood actors, but Cory’s suit fits to perfection. The only other actor that gets it this right is Eddie Redmayne.

His Spring 2013 two-button suit was styled with a white dress shirt and slim tie.

With that perfectly coiffed quiff and chiselled good looks, Eddie might just have someone who can contend for his best-dressed-male status.

Rose Byrne In Balenciaga – ‘I Give It A Year’ 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival Premiere

Rose Byrne In Balenciaga - 'I Give It A Year' 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival Premiere

Rose Byrne attended the ‘I Give It A Year’ 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival premiere held at the Topfer Theater in Austin, Texas on Saturday.

The Australian beauty wore a Balenciaga Resort 2013 summery peach ruffled three-quarter-sleeved blouse with a leather pinstriped skirt.

Known for her impeccable styling, Rose added a white Chanel clutch, white Lanvin pumps, a Soffer Ari ring, a State Room bracelet and House of Lavande earrings to her look.

Sans smoky eyes, Rose kept her complexion fairly neutral, with an effortless bun completing her look.

She continues to be one of my favourites. She has rarely, if ever, put a foot wrong.

Rooney Mara In Balenciaga – ‘Side Effects’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall

Rooney Mara In Balenciaga - 'Side Effects' Berlin Film Festival PhotocallBefore her ladylike turn at the ‘Side Effects’ premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in Germany, Rooney Mara suited up for the film’s photocall on Tuesday.

Donning an ensemble from the Balenciaga Resort 2013 collection, the actress was in a mannish mood.

The pleated, high-waisted silhouette of the wool pinstripe pant, with the wide belt bisecting the torso, is a hard trend to wear. It’s even more challenging when paired with a rigid harness-like top.

But count on Rooney as one of the few who could pull this off with some sense of coolness—despite the bit of awkward bunching that happened at the cuffed sleeves of her white blouse.

She looked relatively identical to the lookbook model, save for the swapping of the boot for a pointy pump and skipping the hoop earrings altogether.

She didn’t really need any accessories, though, as that vermillion lip against her porcelain skin was pop enough.

We can always count on her to wear thought-provoking pieces; perhaps she was paying homage to Nicolas Ghesquière with this look from one of his final collections for the Balenciaga label.
