Gillian Anderson In Vintage Balmain Couture – 2014 BAFTAs

Gillian Anderson In Vintage Balmain Couture - 2014 BAFTAsGillian Anderson took to the red carpet at the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The actress selected a vintage 1949 Balmain haute couture gown from WilliamVintage.

Colour-blocked in shades of blue, the strapless dress featured a tiered bodice, which tied in the back with scarf-like panels that floated to the bottom of the navy ball skirt.

In keeping with the blue theme, she wore matching gemstone and diamond necklace and earrings.

Even so, something seemed to be missing here. Perhaps a statement lip lacquer, or a different ‘do, would have made all the difference.

Jared Leto In Balmain Homme – 39th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards

Jared Leto In Balmain Homme - 39th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association AwardsBefore picking up his Best Supporting Actor trophy at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, Jared Leto attended the 39th annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, California on Saturday (January 11).

Like fellow attendees Adèle Exarchopoulos and Lupita Nyong’o, the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ star took a monochromatic style stand. He posed in a Balmain Homme black-and-white tuxedo jacket and black trousers, worn with perfectly matched Jimmy Choo ‘Gentry’ lace-up shoes.

It was a striking, and still quirky, statement from Jared, who we can always count on to bring a bit of edgy flavour to his fashion.

He did quell the rocker-boy boldness a bit by choosing to slick his long locks back into a ponytail. Of course, the slightly unkempt beard was alive and kicking.

Adèle Exarchopoulos In Balmain – 39th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards

Adèle Exarchopoulos In Balmain - 39th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association AwardsAdèle Exarchopoulos joined Lupita Nyong’o at the 39th annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, which took place at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, California on Saturday (January 11).

Flaunting a Balmain Pre-Fall 2014 monochromatic mini-dress, the young French actress was not easily missed on the red carpet. Flocked in sequins, the black-and-white, body-con design featured a bold crackle-effect, pebblestone pattern.

A silver, spike-studded Christian Louboutin clutch added a touch of danger to the edgy dress, which she also paired with black Prada cage-inspired platform sandals.

While her ensemble was attention-grabbing, Adèle dialed back her statement look when it came to her hair and makeup. She barely seemed to be wearing an ounce of product, while her brunette locks were just pasted back in an unusual wet-look ‘do

Yay or nay?

Kylie Minogue In Balmain – Qantas Spirit Of Australia Party

Kylie Minogue In Balmain - Qantas Spirit Of Australia Party

Kylie Minogue took her sartorial style stateside for the Qantas Spirit of Australia Party on Wednesday (January 8) in Beverly Hills, California.

The singer, who has already given us four amazing looks this week, made it five donning a Balmain Resort 2013 short-sleeved black-and-white houndstooth dress featuring a crossover detail on the skirt.

If you thought the white-pumps trend died in 2013, think again; Kylie styled her Parisian-chic mini dress with my least favourite footwear, but I can’t knock the fact that they work with the look.

Gold hooped earrings provided the finishing touches.

Who Wore Balmain Better…Lala Anthony or Lindsay Lohan?

Who Wore Balmain Better Lala Anthony or Lindsay Lohan

Lala Anthony was the first to wear this green devoré-velvet mini dress from the Balmain Pre-Fall 2012 collection to BET’s Black Girls Rock back in October 2012.

Opting to sweep her hair up to show off that high neckline, she styled the dress with black Louboutins and a selection of silver jewels.

Lindsay Lohan attempted to make a fashion comeback wearing the same dress to the 2nd Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards this week.

While I think she should have done the same with her hair, those Christian Louboutin ‘Resillissima’ leather-and-mesh platform ankle boots kill any chance of her winning this contest.

An easy win for Lala.
