2013 National Board Of Review Awards

2012 Board of Review Awards

It wasn’t just ladies’ night at the 2013 National Board Of Review Awards held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City last night. Many yummy actors took to the red carpet too.

Bradley Cooper: The actor, who has been pretty much dedicated to Tom Ford over the last few weeks, opted for an ink-blue Gucci suit on this occasion. A matching tie and a light-blue shirt completed his look. As sharp as he looks, I think he needed some product in his hair.

Eddie Redmayne: The British actor, and your man of the year, kick-starts 2013 wearing his favourite brand, Burberry. This black Burberry Tailoring slim-fit suit was styled with a white dress shirt, a white pocket square and a Burberry jacquard grey tie. I like that he has modified his signature red carpet pose for the start of the year but I’m happy to see that boyish grin still in check.

Daniel Craig: The British actor didn’t take his navy coat off so we don’t get to see much of his dark-grey suit, which he styled with a blue shirt and navy tie. I guess he wasn’t planning to stay long as his lovely wife Rachel Weisz was also out promoting her new movie, ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ last night. Read More…

Naomi Watts In Calvin Klein – Late Show with David Letterman

Naomi Watts also made a guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ yesterday evening to promote her latest movie, ‘The Impossible’.

The actress wore a look which should pass off as a dress, but it’s actually a Calvin Klein Fall 2012 coat.

What could’ve been just a normal black wool coat also features a leather skirt.

Adding further interest to her all black look Naomi paired her outerwear with Christian Louboutin ‘Col Zippe’ zipper booties.

Some may argue that the coat overwhelms her petite frame, but she banks major points from me for making love this all black look.

She would look silly prancing around in a sleeveless dress outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre on a cold night in December, so this chic number ensured she was kept both chic and warm.

Rooney Mara In Calvin Klein – Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala

Rooney Mara was another celebrity who attended the Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala at the Armani Hotel in Dubai on Friday.

The ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ actress often experiments on the red carpet, and this occasion was no different.

She wore a custom-made black sleeveless Calvin Klein sheer dress with a lacquered silk skirt, sculptural detail on the bust and a thick waistband.

While the look is definitely risky, Rooney pulled it off by keeping her hair tightly pulled back and pairing the dress with simple, strappy Givenchy heels.

The finished look was part dominatrix, part runway model — and full on fabulous.

Naomi Watts In Calvin Klein – ‘The Impossible’ New York Premiere

Naomi Watts attended the special screening of ‘The Impossible’ at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City yesterday evening.

Dressed by the host of the night, Calvin Klein, she donned a nude dress from their Spring 2013 collection, which as we know is the most-worn Spring 2013 collection by celebrities so far.

Her strapless cocktail dress, featuring a sweetheart neckline, contrast black trim, and a semi-sheer lower panel, hits her just below the knee.

There are a few things putting me off this look: the indented right cup, the creases on the skirt, the jewellery, which makes the look overly fussy, and the hair, which I wish was sleeker.

Rita Ora In Calvin Klein – Jingle Bell Ball

Sporting a slick back dirty-blonde do, Rita Ora took to the red carpet for the Jingle Bell Ball hosted by Capital FM at the O2 Arena in London on Sunday evening.

The singer wore a Calvin Klein Resort 2013 that doesn’t appear to fit her style at all.

Had this citron dress featuring a split neck and bandeau been worn by Clare Danes, Jennifer Aniston (in black, obviously) or Zoe Saldana this would’ve worked, but on Rita, I don’t get it.

Factor in the new hairstyle, makeup too heavy for this summery hue dress and those hideous PVC booties and we possibly have Rita’s worst look to date.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Eddie Redmayne In Burberry Prorsum, Naomi Watts In Roland Mouret & John Krasinski In Calvin Klein

Despite having a strong disagreement about one look during the week, we both decided on one winner for BDOTW – Naomi Watts.

Her Roland Mouret look incorporated all my favourite things: an electric-blue hue, a body skimming fit and a mermaid hem. What’s not to love?

When it came to menswear, our tastes differed.

Eddie Redmayne took a strong lead for his forest-green Burberry Prorsum velvet suit, which was both suave and festive.

I opted for John Krasinski’s Calvin Klein sleek grey suit with black lapels. Had the suit not had the black lapels, I’m not sure the look would’ve won me over.

Gerard Butler In Calvin Klein – Good Morning America

Gerard Butler makes us swoon twice in one day – lucky us.

Prior to taking the red carpet for the ‘Playing for Keeps’ New York premiere, he was setting female hearts a flutter outside the ABC Times Square Studios prior to his guest appearance on ‘Good Morning’ America.

So maybe my theory that men tend to stick to one brand is flawed, because on this occasion Gerard wore a Calvin Klein suit.

The navy chintz wool one-button notch lapel suit, from the Fall 2012 collection, designed by Italo Zucchelli, the brands’ Men’s Creative Director, was styled with a light blue dress shirt, blue tie and black leather shoes from the same collection.

Many of you expressed that you loved his black-on-black red carpet look, so if you could put just one of his looks up for the menswear BDOTW, which one would you choose?

It’s a coin toss for me.
