Salma Hayek Grown Ups 2 New York Promo Tour

It was a busy day for Salma Hayek as she promoted her latest movie ‘Grown Ups 2′ in New York City.

‘Katie’ Show: The Mexican beauty kick-started her day at the ‘Katie’ show, wearing a flirty black Balenciaga dress featuring a fitted bodice and flowing chiffon skirt styled with nude sandals.

‘Letterman’ Arrival: Later in the day she opted for a very summery Gucci printed frock with a plunging neckline, to which she added a cream cami and espadrille wedges.

‘Letterman’ Departure: I’m hot just looking at Salma in this crushed pleather belted Gucci dress styled with black ‘Casadei’ pumps with a Plexiglas heel. I couldn’t even comprehend wearing this type of dress on a summer’s day in a hot studio.

‘Grown Ups 2′ Premiere: For the premiere she spun her wavy tresses into a high bun, wearing her third black dress of the day, selecting a sexy piece from Saint Laurent which features silver embellishments and a cut-out detail at the waist which she styled with black Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ sandals.

While only the season-appropriate Gucci dress and the Saint Laurent dress – which was perfect for an evening premiere – pique my interest, I have to give credit to Salma for keeping the twins under control.

In the past she has had so many major issues with the twins either nearly spilling out of her dresses or having them pushed up to her collarbone that it’s almost been too painful to watch.

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Several stars arrived at the Hotel Des Invalides in Paris, France this afternoon for the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture presentation, with Marion Cotillard as the surprise absentee.

Jennifer Lawrence: The Oscar-winning actress and current face of Miss Dior was of course front row, getting a first look at her next red carpet look, no doubt. Jennifer selected a printed pastel-metallic guipure top with charcoal wool trousers with a stripe down one side and pleats down the other from the Resort 2014 collection. Black Dior sunglasses, shoes and a Dior fine jewelry ‘Bois de Rose’ bracelet. You are expecting me to say that I dislike the black pumps; well, I am too busy saving all my dislike for those pants. The colour, the style, the pleats: nothing about them work for me.

Miroslava Duma: After a pretty lacklustre weekend fashion-wise, Miroslava finally gives me a red carpet look I can love. The fashion editor selected a Dior Resort 2014 ivory bustier dress with blue-, orange- and pink-striped panels, which she styled with an Hermes black bag and lust-worthy blue pumps.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who is a regular in the front row at Dior, wore a full Dior look. Usually she marches to the beat of her own drum and will wear even high-street looks like Zara and Topshop to Fashion week; on this occasion she wore a Dior white jacket paired with a pink-and-blue organza skirt with all-Dior accessories, including cuffs on both wrists, an embellished belt, and a white clutch. I love everything bar the skirt. I almost wish the jacket was long enough to pass off as a dress.

Brit Marling In Balenciaga - 'The East' LA Premiere

Brit Marling attended the LA premiere for ‘The East’ held at the ArcLight Hollywood in California yesterday evening.

I must admit, I had my reservations about the Balenciaga Fall 2013 collection on the red carpet due to my love of colour; however, each look so far has been a hit, and I include Brit’s ensemble.

She wore an elegant white satin blouse with black tapered pants, which she styled with a short-sleeved tailcoat accented with a silver bow accent.

Much like the other master of minimalism, Carey Mulligan, Brit opted to keep her look simple, adding just black peep-toes and livening things up with a red lip colour and super-glossy waves.

Anna Dello Russo In Balenciaga - amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Anna Dello Russo added some life to the red carpet at amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening.

The Vogue editor-at-large was one of the few bright sparks on this red carpet, opting for a flamenco style Balenciaga Spring 2013 look which showed off her yoga toned bod to perfection.

We’ve seen this style twice before on the red carpet, but this is the first time it has been worn with conviction.

A Bulgari clutch and jewels completed her look.

Cannes Film Festival Menswear Round Up

Sunday at the Cannes Film Festival in France included the premiere of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’, which features Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Garrett Hedlund, and the premiere of ‘Blood Ties’, starring Clive Owen and Marion Cotillard.

Garrett Hedlund: Not going with the traditional black tuxedo, Garrett opted for a Saint Laurent midnight-navy tux with black peak lapels. Keeping the color scheme dark, he paired it with a black shirt and a black tie. Garrett looks great, but unfortunately he is standing next to a major menswear mogul in Justin Timberlake.

Justin Timberlake: In the past few months we’ve seen Justin wear tuxedos with perfection. He kept the streak alive, pulling out all of the stops in a beautifully tailored Balenciaga black tuxedo with peak lapels. He kept the look classic as always, with a crisp white shirt, and a black bow tie and cummerbund. To finish it off, he added a Cartier watch, a Lanvin lapel pin, and vintage mother-of-pearl cufflinks.

Oscar Isaac: The star of the film went with a classic black tux, but a few key differences made it stand on its own next to Justin’s similar look. Oscar decided to wear a necktie instead of a bow tie and nixed the cummerbund. Simplicity always works with a tux, so Oscar did well.

Clive Owen: Also sticking with the classics, Clive sported an elegant look in a black tuxedo alongside co-star Marion Cotillard. He finished off the two-button peak-lapel tux with a black bow tie and a white shirt.

It’s a little difficult to choose a favourite out of these four. For me, it was between Garrett and Justin because of the midnight-navy colour and the overall perfection, respectively. I’ll have to give the nod to Justin because of the hair. Grooming counts too.

Carey Mulligan In Balenciaga - 'The Great Gatsby' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Carey Mulligan kicked off Cannes Film Festival this afternoon by attending a photocall for ‘The Great Gatsby’ at Palais des Festivals in France.

The British actress wore her second Balenciaga by Alexander Wang Fall 2013 look in a row following the Met Gala.

On this occasion she wore a very chic black jumpsuit featuring a circular beaded bodice with a bow accent, which she styled with Saint Laurent t-bar pumps.

Yes, she’s sticking to this minimalist approach to red carpet dressing for now, but maybe she’ll pull out all the stops for the premiere, which opens the festival officially this evening.

Makeup-wise, I see a touch more lip colour and kohl-rimmed eyes, which is more makeup than she’s worn in a while.

A simple chignon completed her look.

What are your expectations for Carey this evening?

Do you think the likes of Fan Bingbing outshine her at the premiere?
