Best Dressed Of The Week – Lily James In Balenciaga & Helena Bonham Carter In Vivienne Westwood Couture

BDOTW 23 March

Lily James can do no wrong as you voted her best dressed again this week, this time for looking mesmerizing in Balenciaga, taking a detour from fairytale princess to modern red carpet starlet.

While I loved Lily too, I was blown away by Helena Bonham Carter. As many of you had noted, this was perhaps her best ever look. Usually her Vivienne Westwood looks are stuck on repeat, but this Couture look with those stunning earrings had me in awe.

When it comes to the fellas, you couldn’t separate Richard Madden in Thom Sweeney and Miles Teller in Ralph Lauren Purple Label, who both served up three-piece suits with very different styles and fabrications, but they both looked very dapper.

I went for Miles – who would’ve thought a denim-look suit could look so good for a formal occasion?

Lily James In Balenciaga – ‘Cinderella’ London Premiere

Lily James In Balenciaga - ‘Cinderella’ London Premiere

Lily James attended the premiere of ‘Cinderella’ held at the Odeon Leicester Square this evening (March 19) in London, England.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star continues to blow me away, and like Elizabeth Banks, Lily consistently gives me goosebumps with each red carpet look.

This time she went the modern route wearing a custom Balenciaga shimmering silver gown inspired by the Pre-Fall 2015 collection.

If you were starting to get bored with the prim princessy gowns, this architectural piece, which perfectly sculpts and contours, is imbued with plenty of high-fashion allure elevating her red carpet status to a whole new stratosphere.

We still have a very long way to go with it only being mid-March and all, but I am just about ready to crown her Promo Tour Star of 2015.

Zoe Kravitz In Balenciaga – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Zoe Kravitz made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to promote her new movie, ‘Insurgent’, before playing a game of giant beer pong with the host.

No surprises that the actress wore an Alexander Wang for Balenciaga look, selecting a distinctly modern off-the-shoulder playsuit from the Spring 2015 collection, which was given an ultra-modern flair with sheer lilac sleeves.

I love this continual move away from all things black. This outfit really softens her look, despite the nose-ring.

Going light on the accessories, Zoe completed her look with white Balenciaga strappy sandals.

Kerry Washington In Balenciaga – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Kerry Washington In Balenciaga - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Kerry Washington attended the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21), hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

The ‘Scandal’ actress opted for an LBD, hers from the Balenciaga Spring 2015 collection.

Impeccably sleek, but also rather austere, the design’s geometric lines and tonal embellishment at the neckline contributed a subtle yet powerful edge to the look.

Glittery black Manolo Blahnik pumps and Tiffany & Co. jewels finished the statement with the slightest touch of sparkle. A brightly coloured lip would have even further enhanced the effect.

Seriously chic or too serious?

Juliette Binoche attended the 40th Cesar Film Awards held at the Theatre du Chatelet on Friday (February 20) in Paris, France.

The actress was an enchanting vision in white, her current preferred colour, wearing a Balenciaga Spring 2015 dress deploying artisanal creativity for an definitive, dramatic look.

Keeping the styling simple was the perfect way to allow this masterpiece to shine.

Before heading to Europe, Dakota Johnson made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Tuesday (February 11) to continue to promote ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.

Flaunting her modern flare, the actress wore an ivory Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2015 sleeveless dress.

The lightweight crepe fabrication gives this look an effortless, minimalist feel with gold buttons for a touch of glimmer.

With that hem length I wouldn’t have opted for ankle-strap pumps, however, they work well with the black piping on her dress.

Soft waves and neutral makeup completed her simple chic look.

Alesha Dixon In RED Valentino & Balenciaga & Amanda Holden In Balenciaga – Britain’s Got Talent London Auditions

Alesha Dixon In Valentino & Balenciaga & Amanda Holden In Balenciaga - Britain's Got Talent London Auditions

Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden returned to London for the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ auditions held at the Dominion Theatre on Wednesday (February 11) in London, England, with both beauties donning Balenciaga.

Alesha Dixon: Continuing to shun colour, the judge opted for an edgier look, donning a RED Valentino biker jacket with a Paige Denim tank and Balenciaga asymmetrical skirt. The overall vibe of the look is cool, especially with the addition of a selection of vintage gold Chanel jewels, Maria Piana rings and spiked Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. However, I would’ve preferred a pair of high-waist cigarette trousers over the skirt.

Amanda Holden: When it came to Amanda there was nothing but admiration for her look from head to toe. She’s really come into her own this season. The clothes are sharper, ranging from ladylike chic to this precisely tailored Balenciaga Resort 2015 look, which is oozing with modernity. Louboutin sandals and an H. Stern choker rounded out this look.
With perhaps just a little too much going on with Alesha’s look, Amanda’s minimalist chic offering is my favourite here.
What say you?
