Andie MacDowell In Bottega Veneta – Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party

I was very surprised to see Andie MacDowell wearing this Bottega Veneta Spring 2017 gown to Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (February 26).


Because Jessica Brown Findlay wore the same gown exactly two weeks ago at the BAFTAs.

The same gown worn during awards season? The only greater faux pas would be wearing it on the same night, no?

My belief has always been there are enough gowns to go around, that there is no need to wear them twice.

Rant aside, this is a gorgeous colour on Andie, and the belt – which Jessica omitted – helps add balance when the shoulder straps are covered by the hair.

At the end of the day, Andie wore it better, so perhaps a second run out wasn’t the end of the world for this dress.

Jessica Brown Findlay In Bottega Veneta – 2017 BAFTAs

Jessica Brown Findlay also attended the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday (February 12) in London, England.

The English actress stunned in this orange Bottega Veneta spring 2017 gown, that had a slightly Victoria Beckham feel, circa spring 2012. The origami folds and tucks, and the ruching at the waist, draw your eye in and help contour her figure.

Jessica really suits this colour, and the long length makes her look much taller than her five foot four inches.

My only gripe with this look is that I wish she would have kept the black waist belt – it adds more shape, and helps break up the extreme pop of colour this dress offers.

89th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

More stars were also in the mix at the 89th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon, hosted on Monday (February 6) in Beverly Hills.

Viola Davis: A simple sheath dress took on bold new meaning with this Bottega Veneta geometric design. I love how Viola skipped plain black pumps in favour of a pair with pale-pink detailing.

Laura Dern: The dark mustard-y hue of this Roksanda gown is not an easy one to wear—nor is the satin material. With two strikes against the dress, perhaps a vibrant lip colour would have helped.

Naomie Harris In Bottega Veneta – 89th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon

Naomie Harris joined her fellow nominees at the 89th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon on Monday (February 6) in Beverly Hills.

At very first glance, I didn’t gravitate towards the canvas colour of this Bottega Veneta Spring 2017 pleated dress, as I love seeing Naomie in bright shades so much.

However, its buttery hue quickly won me over, especially since she wore the primly tailored silhouette so well.

And, the dimensional black embellishment was just icing on the cake for this richly sophisticated look that yet again sees Naomie back to her best.

She completed the ensemble with an Edie Parker clutch and René Caovilla black heels, not to mention glossy waves and softly radiant makeup.

Amanda Peet In Bottega Veneta – 2017 Producers Guild Awards

Prior to the SAG Awards, the 2017 Producers Guild Awards took place on Saturday (January 28) in Beverly Hills, California.

Amanda Peet red carpet M.O. this weekend was long black gowns. On this occasion her look hailed from Bottega Veneta’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection.

Steeped in simplicity, it’s finished with embellishment drawing attention to the plunging neckline, however, my eyes head straight to the midriff as a result of an extreme paparazzi flash.

Laura Dern In Bottega Veneta – ‘Wilson’ Sundance Film Festival Premiere

Laura Dern attended the ‘Wilson’ premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on Sunday (January 22) in Park City, Utah.

Making a bold splash amidst an array of less colour-forward ensembles we’ve seen thus far at Sundance, the actress wore a Bottega Veneta Spring 2017 ensemble.

A few lapses in execution, namely the visible bra showing through the sheer cranberry sweater, and the occasionally awkward drape of the shiny red-orange skirt, which could have passed for a skirted version of raincoat, might have dampened your spirits toward the look.

However, there’s no denying the hue was beautiful on Laura.

Did you miss the belt from the runway presentation?

Shailene Woodley In Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana & Salvatore Ferragamo – 2017 Winter TCA Tour & ELLE’s Women in Television

Shailene Woodley was also with Zoe Kravitz, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon on-stage for the ‘Big Little Lies’ panel during the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour on January 11 at the Langham Hotel before attending ELLE’s Annual Women in Television Celebration 2017 on January 14 at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California.

2017 Winter TCA Press Tour: The actress wore a Bottega Veneta ensemble that paired a black sheer sweater with a rust suede skirt that was much like a contemporary version of sexy-chic secretary. The styling elements with the metallic wrap sandals and black leather belt really made the look click.

ELLE’s Women in Television: Glam doesn’t always mean gown, as Shailene so effectively demonstrated in this Dolce & Gabbana outfit consisting of wide-leg trousers and matching top, which was so streamlined it could have been mistaken for a jumpsuit. But what made all the difference in the look is her cranberry Salvatore Ferragamo coat, which was all the more relevant because she wore it as a cape and matched her lippie to it.
