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.

Uma Thurman In Chanel & Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Nymphomaniac’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall and Premiere

Uma Thurman In Chanel & Dolce & Gabbana - 'Nymphomaniac' Berlin Film Festival Photocall and Premiere

Uma Thurman attended the ‘Nymphomaniac’ photocall and premiere during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Berlinale Palast on Sunday (February 9) in Berlin, Germany.

The one person you can rely on to bring some glamour to any film festival is Uma Thurman, but I am totally underwhelmed on this occasion.

Photocall: The actress kept it simple and casual wearing a Chanel Fall 2013 black wool and cashmere knit pullover with black trousers and black boots. Only the hair and makeup excite me on this occasion.

Premiere: There was no razzle, no dazzle, no sweeping me off my feet; just a black Dolce & Gabbana column dress styled with a Carolina Herrera plum fur shrug, Manolo Blahnik black pumps and Chopard jewels.

Beautiful, yes, but lacking in the wow factor I expected from her.

Dafne Fernández In Carolina Herrera – Goya Cinema Awards 2014

Dafne Fernández In Carolina Herrera - Goya Cinema Awards 2014

Dafne Fernández attended the Goya Cinema Awards 2014 held at Centro de Congresos Principe Felipe on Sunday (February 9) in Madrid, Spain.

I’ve grown used to the Spanish beauty opting for a more dramatic look for this event; however, she kept it pure and simple on this occasion.

Dafne wore a Carolina Herrera sleeveless white dress featuring body contouring seams which may have sent me to sleep had it not been for the criss-cross tie detailing at the back, and the silver glitter clutch.

Red lips and a wavy ponytail with face framing tendrils completed her look.

Do you love this elegant look, or are you thirsty for more?

Julie Bowen In Carolina Herrera – 2014 SAG Awards

Julie Bowen In Carolina Herrera - 2014 SAG Awards

Julie Bowen mixed it up on the red carpet Saturday evening (January 18) in Los Angeles at the 2014 SAG Awards.

The ‘Modern Family’ actress, who isn’t known for being sartorially adventurous, made one of her boldest choices to date in a dress from Carolina Herrera Spring 2014 and dramatic drop earrings. She finished the look off with a Rauwolf clutch and Jerome C. Rousseau shoes.

The burnt orange, brown and white dress featured a color-blocked bodice and graphic skirt. Everything about the dress from the color combination to the graphic is unusual yet it somehow all works.

A Brigitte Bardot-inspired ponytail was another fashion-forward choice executed to perfection.

It’s exciting to see Julie having fun with fashion and even more exciting to see her pull it off.
