ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration Roundup

Elle 1

Many more fashionable femmes joined the crush of glamour gals at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration, hosted yesterday night at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California.

Melissa McCarthy: One of ELLE’s November cover girls, Melissa took a trendsetting approach in a Calvin Klein ensemble, featuring a black leather-look top and pants and a white bolero jacket, to which she paired a Rauwolf ombre-effect clutch, studded sandals and a few gold cocktail rings. A pompadour-inspired ‘do topped off her edgier entrance.

Emilia Clarke: The ‘Game of Thrones’ starlet was polished in a sheer effect, nude Calvin Klein Spring 2013 frock, cinched in with a black belt. Nude sandals with an embellished metallic heel added an intriguing, style-forward note, while her wispy updo and soft rose-toned makeup were just plain pretty.

Gia Coppola: Also in Calvin Klein, the director-screenwriter skipped a dress in favour of separates including a wrap-front top and cropped black pants, adding some shine via gold sandals and a bit of colour via a berry lip lacquer.

Shailene Woodley In Calvin Klein Collection – ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Shailene Woodley was also among the sea of PYTs that dotted the scene at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration, hosted yesterday at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California.

The young actress was honoured with the Calvin Klein Collection Emerging Star Spotlight Award, so it’s only natural that she selected a Calvin Klein Spring 2014 look for the evening.

Her geometric micro-printed, paneled tunic dress in muted neutral shades was safe from the front and a bit more daring from the side with skin-baring side cutout details.

She teamed the frock with massive black sandals, which seemingly weighed down the look. Not so for her hair and makeup, though, as she rocked her short crop and painted on a fun pink lip.

Naomie Harris In Calvin Klein – ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Naomie Harris attended ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening as an honouree alongside Marion Cotillard and Reese Witherspoon who were also honoured at the event.

The British actress, who was front row at Calvin Klein’s Spring 2014 show, wore an ivory-and-black mesh-threaded cocktail dress with fringed layers and a square neckline from the same collection.

It’s quite an unusual, shapeless dress, yet I find myself being totally charmed by it. That could have a lot to do with Naomie’s effortless styling and flawless makeup.

Like Emmy Rossum, Reese Witherspoon channeled ‘Lady in Red’ at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

The actress and mother of three stayed true to the minimalist Calvin Klein mantra in a strapless red number by the iconic designer that hugged her gorgeous curves.

Manolo Blahnik ankle-strap heels echoed the cream detailing at the neckline and dainty jewels by David Yurman and Harry Winston finished off her unfussy turn on the red carpet.

While this outfit is rather expected of the gorgeous blonde–she’s not a huge risk-taker–the winning element of this look is Reese’s hair and makeup.

The actress usually favours glossy, retro waves, but here she opted for a layered updo that framed her famous heart-shaped face.

Smoky eyes and a natural pink pout sealed the deal.

Lea Michele was all smiles on the red carpet while attending ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

The ‘Glee’ actress wore a sand-coloured Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2014 strapless frock with cut-outs featuring multi-coloured deconstructed threading details throughout, styled with white B Brian Atwood ‘Lebrea’ strappy sandals and a Kotur beige clutch.

I love the look as it is sexy and fun without trying too hard, but that clutch is close to dominating the look. I wish it was at least half the size.

Her golden glow was complemented with barely there makeup enhancing her lip and eyes. Lacquered and loose ombre tresses completed her look.

2013 Emmy Awards Menswear Roundup

Emmy Men 1

Enough about the girls at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards; the boys brought out their own brand of style for Sunday’s star-studded night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Zachary Quinto: The ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ star suited up in a dark Givenchy ensemble, wearing his black-on-black piped tux with a charcoal tie and pocket square—and a suave stare.

Derek Hough: The ‘Dancing With The Stars’ pro and an Emmy winner for Outstanding Choreography accepted his trophy in style in a classic black tuxedo and bow tie. The dancing shoes were exchanged for classic black loafers on this occasion.

Bobby Cannavale: The ‘Boardwalk Empire’ actor accompanied his date, Rose Byrne, in complementary style with a classic, fitted Calvin Klein Fall 2013 black matte wool one-button peak lapel tuxedo with black satin lapels, paired with a white dress shirt and black tie—which also served him well on stage when he accepted his Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor.

Rose Byrne In Calvin Klein Collection – 2013 Emmy Awards

Rose Byrne In Calvin Klein Collection - 2013 Emmy Awards

Rose Byrne was one of the few who gave me goose bumps from Sunday night’s 2013 Emmy Awards – the others included Michelle Dockery, the return to form Christina Hendricks, Tina Fey in that blue hue, and my style icon, Kiernan Shipka.

For someone who enjoys bells and whistles, I was totally bowled over by the simplicity and smouldering sex appeal of her custom Calvin Klein petal-pink two-piece look featuring a crepe sleeveless wrap halter top and streamline skirt.

A silver Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch, Tiffany & Co. jewels, Charlotte Olympia pink platform peep-toes and a dark pink lip completed her look.

While I am not a fan of the lighter brunette locks, she was still one of the best of the night for me.

Hailee Steinfeld In Calvin Klein – Calvin Klein Spring 2014 After-Party

Hailee Steinfeld In Calvin Klein - Calvin Klein Spring 2014 After-Party

Hailee Steinfeld joined a host of celebs who gathered at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening to celebrate Francisco Costa’s 10 years as women’s Creative Director and the new ‘Downtown’ fragrance following the Spring 2014 show.

This was the teen’s third event of the night following the Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 show and the Estee Lauder ‘Modern Muse’ Fragrance Launch Party.

On this occasion she wore a white shift dress from the brand’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection which features a black shearling cropped turtleneck, which was accented with a white belt.

While the dress could stand to be a few inches shorter, I do love her effortless styling and magenta lip colour.

Estee Lauder ‘Modern Muse’ Fragrance Launch Party Red Carpet Roundup

Estee Lauder 'Modern Muse' Fragrance Launch Party Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the attendees at the Estee Lauder ‘Modern Muse’ Fragrance Launch Party held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City yesterday evening.

Joan Smalls: The model snagged the first look from the Prabal Gurung Spring 2014 collection, wearing a lavender-and-ivory strapless dress with light embroidery. The only thing I would change about the look is the heavy Casadei pumps.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young actress wore a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2014 navy floral satin dress with a pleated skirt styled with a navy cardi and brown ankle-strap sandals. Had she opted for better heels and ditched the cardi this would’ve been a more memorable look.

Hilary Rhoda: Like Joan, she also wore a Prabal Gurung look, selecting a sexy one-shoulder ivory frock from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection featuring a sculptural ruffled hem and gold baroque border. Jimmy Choo ‘Besso’ black-and-gold sandals, tousled tresses and a gold clutch completed her look. She was by far the best dressed at this event for me.
