Darby Stanchfield In Carolina Herrera – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Darby Stanchfield In Carolina Herrera - NAACP Image Awards 2014Darby Stanchfield joined her ‘Scandal’ co-star Katie Lowes at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California on Saturday (February 22).

Bringing a flash of a bold, jewel-toned hue to the red carpet, the actress was gorgeous in a green Carolina Herrera scoop-neck gown that was the epitome of chic elegance.

Featuring a taupe, waist-cinching detail and defined, visible seaming, the sleek body-con silhouette slipped into a dramatic, ball-gown train.

Enhancing the look with sparkling diamond statement earrings and rings by H. Stern, she also carried a silver Judith Leiber clutch.

Of course, there is no question this emerald colour fully complemented those flame-red locks, which were tied into a side-parted updo.

Carolina Herrera Fall 2014 Front Row

Carolina Herrera Fall 2014 Front Row

Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2014 show during New York Fashion Week took place on Monday (February 10) and, as expected, it drew a celebrity front row full of her most loyal fans.

Emmy Rossum: With so many memorable Carolina Herrera dresses under her belt, Emmy was no doubt shopping for her next red carpet look to be deemed BDOTW worthy. The actress looked uberchic, taking to the front row wearing a Carolina Herrera black-and-gold embroidered halter blouse and ivory wide leg pant with gold belt detail from the Resort 2014 collection. A few of you had mentioned that the last few red carpet appearances from Emmy haven’t exactly floated your boat for one reason or another, but I’m sure you will agree that this outfit puts her firmly back on track. Christian Louboutin ‘Lagoula’ t-bar sandals and rose-gold ‘Sweety Charity’ mini glitter bag with bow detail accessorized her look.

Dita Von Teese: The burlesque star caught the Carolina Herrera bug about 6 months ago, following her attendance to the Spring 2014 show and she continued her love affair on Monday afternoon. She wore a colour other than black when she selected this pink silk mikado blouse with silverfox fur sleeves and bow detail styled with a grey wool flannel pleated pant. Every thing else (hair and makeup) was business as usual.

Michelle Obama In Carolina Herrera – White House State Dinner

Michelle Obama In Carolina Herrera - White House State Dinner

The White House State Dinner has become a date in the diary that I value as much as any major red carpet event, because it’s when the First Lady really gets to shine.

I mean, who can forget that jaw-dropping Alexander McQueen gown Michelle Obama wore back in 2011 or the Marchesa dress worn in 2012?

The First Lady didn’t disappoint at the State Dinner hosted in honor of French President Francois Hollande on Tuesday evening (February 11), wearing a dramatic Carolina Herrera ball gown with Sutra jewels.

Her gown featured a black beaded embroidery appliqué scallop-edged top over a liberty-blue silk faille corset with a wide black velvet belt detail and liberty blue silk faille inverted pleat long skirt and train. This is certainly one for the record books.

Oozing class, femininity and sleeves (some may be delighted to learn), this look hits all the right style notes and is certainly worthy of such a regal occasion.

Along with Cate Blanchett, Michelle gives me many goosebump– inducing moments of which this ranks quite highly.

Olivia Munn In Carolina Herrera – ‘RoboCop’ LA Premiere

Olivia Munn In Carolina Herrera - 'RoboCop' LA Premiere

Olivia Munn attended the LA premiere of ‘Robocop’ on Monday, February 10 in Hollywood, California. This is her third premiere for this movie; oddly one more than the star of the movie, Abbie Cornish.

Turning to one of her favorite designers: Carolina Herrera, Olivia opted for a Spring 2014 clay-and-ivory dynamic print chiffon gown which was originally presented with a high-neck. But Olivia, not surprisingly, opted for a strapless version of this look with an organza trim decorating the sweetheart neckline.

Olivia’s gown is spectacular. This is not an easy print to pull off, but the red lips are too harsh for me on this occasion. Something more neutral, perhaps an earthy shade, would’ve been perfection.

Gold leaf earrings and a simple slick-back bun completed her look.
