Paula Patton In Basil Soda – ‘2 Guns’ New York Premiere

Paula Patton In Basil Soda - '2 Guns' New York Premiere

Paula Patton took to the red carpet in dramatic fashion for the ‘2 Guns’ New York premiere held at SVA Theater in New York City yesterday evening.

The beautiful actress opted to wear a Basil Soda Fall 2012 black-and-white patterned gown with a plunging neckline and central slit.

Breaking the cardinal rule of red carpet dressing, the actress opted to showcase both legs and boobs, taking the elegance out of the look as it was presented on the model.

Factor in those heavy black-and-white pumps and we have another so-close-yet-so-far-from-being-perfect look.

A pop of colour via her yellow manicure, black-and-white patterened earrings and a slightly off-centre ponytail, which should’ve been an updo, provided the finishing touches.

Jiang Yiyan In Basil Soda – 3rd Beijing International Film Festival

Having looked breathtaking at the 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards, Jiang Yiyan was back on the red carpet on Tuesday evening for the 2013 Beijing International Film Festival closing ceremony.

Opting for yet another ball gown, the actress selected another Basil Soda gown, this time from the Lebanese designer’s Spring 2013 collection.

The white bustier gown features a light-pink overlay on the tulle skirt, which is decorated with pink floral appliqués.

Once again she opted for subtle jewels, with a dark-pink lip colour completing her princess look.

Is this look heavenly or too frou frou?

I have to say I prefer her previous look.

The final look from the 2013 Hong Kong Awards, which took place on Saturday, comes courtesy of Jiang Yi Yan.

The actress opted for a statement-making Basil Soda Fall 2012 Couture gown.

We haven’t seen this designer in a while on the red carpet, so this makes for quite a dramatic comeback.

The moss-green gown with a stunning embellished bodice and chiffon skirt was thankfully not over-styled.

Jiang Yi Yan wisely opted out of wearing jewels, just adding a silver clutch and bold red lips to her look.

Archie Panjabi In Basil Soda – The Weinstein Company’s 2013 Golden Globe Awards After Party

Archie Panjabi In Basil Soda - Warner Bros And InStyle Golden Globe Awards After PartyArchie Panjabi picked The Weinstein Company’s 2013 Golden Globe Awards After Party, hosted at the Beverly Hilton in California on Sunday evening, to make her entrance.

‘The Good Wife’ star found inspiration from a few seasons ago in Lebanese designer Basil Soda’s Fall 2012 collection.

The strapless, structured bodice gave way to the soft glamour of a long mermaid silhouette and train, which actually may have been a bit cumbersome for any sort of party mixing and mingling.

Aside from its bridal white shade, the look stood out the most for its lack of any form of embellishment save for accessories in the form of a simple bracelet and silver box clutch.

Perhaps Archie could have used a sparkling necklace or the pop of a vibrant, pendant earring, especially since she wore her hair slicked back.

Her black crepe dress with a fishnet and gold-lace panel was styled with gold metallic peep-toes and Chopard jewels.

After opting for a sleek hairstyle in Dior, she opted for a funky rockabilly hairstyle for this occasion.

It’s great to see more than one side to Marion’s style.
