Queen Letizia of Spain’s Six Looks In Three Days For Paris State Visit

Queen Letizia of Spain's Six Looks In Three Days For Paris State Visit

Queen Letizia of Spain has been taking the Paris by storm while embarking on a state visit with husband King Felipe VI this week.

Look 1: King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia were officially welcomed by the French President, Francois Hollande at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris on Tuesday (June 2). She wore a bespoke Felipe Varela skirt suit accented with tonal macramé lace detailing which was supremely elegant and befitting of the formal occasion.

Look 2: Later that afternoon the Queen changed into a more relaxed look by Carolina Herrera. Aside from the Carolina Herrera floral print skirt, I also took notice of her Carolina Herrera strappy sandals as royals usually stick to classic pumps.

Look 3: The same evening the Queen Letizia went glam, opting for a dazzling burgundy dress by one of her favourite designers Felipe Varela for her night out at the Elysée Palace. Complementary Lodi pumps and a black clutch accessorized her look. I love how she styled her new bob into 20s-inspired waves.

Weekend Red Carpet Roundup

weekend roundup

The weekend brought with it a garden variety of ensembles from Los Angeles to London, and more. Here, a glance at the looks and the starlets who wore them.

Emma Roberts: Joining Diane Kruger and Freida Pinto, the actress was at the 8th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park on Saturday (May 30) in Jersey City, New Jersey. She styled her sunny yellow Christine Alcalay Spring 2015 dress with Michael Kors Benji straw wedge sandals, an M2malletier Mini Amor Fati leopard pony bag, and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Chantilly sunglasses, all topped off with a braided ’do.

Elsa Pataky: Elsa was the picture of girly charm, as she joined Emily Blunt at the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park on Sunday (May 31) in London, England. Her rose-printed Ulyana Sergeenko demi couture dress was adorable yet I would have loved to see it without the pink sweater. Casadei nude suede pumps assured her legs went on for days, with a Paula Cademartori clutch finishing the look.

Sophia Bush: The actress was at Glamour USA’s June ‘Success’ Issue dinner party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California on Friday (May 29). While her Vivienne Westwood Fall 2015 dress, worn with a Rauwolf clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, was rather elaborate with its heavy print and silhouette, she ensured the look stayed fresh with her hair and makeup on the barely-there side.

Zhang Ziyi In Carolina Herrera – 2015 Met Gala

Zhang Ziyi In Carolina Herrera - 2015 Met Gala

Zhang Ziyi attended the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4) with designer Carolina Herrera at her side.

Gracefully encompassing the evening’s theme, the Chinese actress stunned in a custom Carolina Herrera cream gown with a high collared neckline and delicate floral embellishment.

I love this look for its classic elegance infused with a modern sculptural quality and dimensional embroidery.

The bracelet and dark handbag felt unnecessary, with a tonal cream bag providing less of a distracting contrast to the artistry of the dress.

Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better…Emmy Rossum or Juana Acosta?

Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better Emmy Rossum or Juana Acosta

Emmy Rossum attended the Art Production Fund’s White Glove Gone Wild Gala back in March 2014, wearing a gorgeous Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2014 gown.

Emmy and Herrera have always produced breath-taking results, and that was very much the case on this occasion.

Juana Acosta wore the same gown to the 2015 Goya Awards in February, styling the look with Swarovski clutch and Barcena jewels.

Both women look gorgeous, but Emmy wins for me. The clean, simple styling of this look won me over.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Carolina Herrera – 8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Carolina Herrera - 8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the 8th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday (February 19) in Beverly Hills, California.

I love how the blue and black floral print lends a touch of whimsy to this impeccably tailored Carolina Herrera dress, which would work just as well strapless. In fact I think it would’ve worked even better strapless.

Gugu continues to be one of my faves for the same reason I love Emmy Rossum – unwavering commitment to ladylike dressing.

While the navy Louboutins are a tad snooze-worthy, with those gorgeous curls swept up into a chic updo and that pretty pink lip, sparkling Kwiat jewels and of course that gorgeous face, who’s looking at her shoes?
