Lupita Nyong’o In Carolina Herrera – AFI Awards 2014

Lupita Nyong'o In Carolina Herrera - AFI Awards 2014

When I saw Lupita Nyong’o at the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10) I gave a sigh of relief.

Thankfully that strange hairdo sported at the W magazine party was just an one-off.

The actress was back to her best wearing blue-and-yellow floral print Carolina Herrera v-neck frock with an asymmetrical draped skirt.

She complemented the look with blue suede Manolo Blahnik pumps and dazzling Jamie Wolf scallop stud earrings and a matching cocktail ring.

Many of you were not only put off by the hairdo of the last look, but also the styling; so how does Lupita fare on this occasion?

Dita von Teese In Carolina Herrera – LoveGold Luncheon Honouring Michelle Dockery

Dita von Teese In Carolina Herrera - LoveGold Luncheon Honouring Michelle Dockery

Dita von Teese attended the LOVEGOLD luncheon celebrating Michelle Dockery at Chateau Marmont on Thursday (January 9) in Los Angeles, California.

The burlesque star continued her love affair with all things Carolina Herrera, wearing a rich purple 3/4 sleeve Fall 2013 sheath dress with a waist-cinching centre enhancing her hourglass silhouette.

Opting to wear the dress without all the adornments we saw on the runway, Dita styled the look with matching satin Louboutins and a tassel-accented Corto Moltedo clutch.

Is it time for Dita to switch things up, or when it comes to Dita do you believe that if it ain’t broke don’t fix it?

Dita Von Teese In Carolina Herrera – Van Cleef & Arpels Celebrates The Redesigned New York 5th Avenue Flagship Maison

Dita Von Teese In Carolina Herrera - Van Cleef & Arpels Celebrates The Redesigned New York 5th Avenue Flagship Maison

Dita Von Teese joined Blake Lively for the unveiling of Van Cleef & Arpels’ redesigned New York 5th Avenue flagship maison at Van Cleef & Arpels on Tuesday (December 10) in New York City.

The burlesque star has been having a Carolina Herrera moment ever since she attended the designer’s Spring 2014 show during New York Fashion Week.

On this occasion she wore a blue-dotted floral-print silk gown with a plunging neckline and bow detail which was originally sent down the runway in a vibrant ruby colour; you may remember the ruby gown was worn by Sarah Paulson at the Emmy Awards.

Dita was of course dripping in Van Cleef & Arpels jewels with her signature red lips and retro ‘do firmly in check.

This look would’ve been perfect had the skirt been taken up an inch.

Sandra Bullock In Carolina Herrera – ‘Gravity’ Tokyo Premiere

Sandra Bullock In Carolina Herrera - 'Gravity' Tokyo Premiere

Following yesterday’s red-hot press conference, Sandra Bullock took to the red carpet again this evening for the ‘Gravity’ premiere in Tokyo, Japan.

This time she opted for a very elegant Carolina Herrera Resort 2014 sculptural strapless silk faille navy-blue dress featuring a flounce skirt with a contrast sheer floral lace underlay.

I really like the simplicity of the look, but the black satin Charlotte Olympia platform pumps feel so heavy with the delicate hemline. The look book heels would’ve been perfect.

Martin Katz jewels, matte nude lips and a wavy updo provided the finishing touches.

Are the shoes a deal-breaker?

Jessica Simpson In Carolina Herrera – 27th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards

Jessica Simpson In Carolina Herrera - 27th Annual Footwear News Achievement AwardsJessica Simpson joined Crystal Renn at the 27th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards, hosted yesterday at the IAC Building in New York City.

The entertainer selected a black-and-red Carolina Herrera rose jacquard cocktail dress that may have been a smidge too small through the cleavage-confining bodice.

Thee frock itself was fine enough, but factor in the compromised silhouette, along with the black platform pumps, a long mane of icy-blonde locks and a significant smokey eye, the look lost some of its appeal to me.

Were you let down by the styling, as well?

Christina Ricci In Carolina Herrera – 9th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball

Christina Ricci In Carolina Herrera - 9th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball

Christina Ricci attended the 9th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City yesterday evening, joining Katy Perry on the red carpet.

The petite actress wore a Carolina Herrera gown featuring an open neck, tri-colour bodice and jacquard animal-print skirt.

I’m very much on the fence with this one, and it’s the bodice which is throwing me off as I ask myself ‘would the gown have been better with just the animal print, or a single solid colour for the bodice?’

The colours are great for her complexion and, once again, I’m loving this dark lip and her copper eye shadow.

Despite my questions, I do find myself being totally captivated by this look – but that has always been the USP of Christina Ricci.

Allison Williams In Carolina Herrera – 2013 Library Lions Gala

Allison Williams In Carolina Herrera - 2013 Library Lions Gala

Allison Williams attended the 2013 Library Lions Gala held at The New York Public Library in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building in New York City yesterday evening.

Giving further reason to fall in love with her style, the ‘Girls’ actress wore a Carolina Herrera Spring 2014 look with Dana Rebecca Designs jewels.

I had picked this smoky-umber-and-shell-pink kinetic-square-print gown with a silk-organza overlay styled with a smoky-umber-and-black peplum mesh belt for Kate Beckinsale in my NYFW wish list, but as both actresses have the same sweet, girlie-girl style and glossy brunette locks I feel that my choice wasn’t too far off – so I’m telling myself.

Having debuted her new ‘Rachel’ haircut last week, she sported a retro wavy ‘do on this occasion.

J’adore from head to toe. Especially that orangey-chocolate lip colour.
