Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Michelle Obama In Carolina Herrera - Charlottenburg Palace Dinner

First Lady Michelle Obama, President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel attended the dinner given in honour of the President at the Orangerie of Schloss Charlottenburg palace in Berlin, Germany this evening.

Obama is visiting Berlin for the first time during his presidency and his speech at the Brandenburg Gate is set to be the highlight. Obama will be speaking close to the 50th anniversary of the historic speech by then U.S. President John F. Kennedy in Berlin in 1963, during which he proclaimed the famous sentence: ‘Ich bin ein Berliner.’

Michelle wore a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2013 dress for the occasion.

The sleeveless wave pattern jacquard party dress featuring grosgrain bow accented straps, a high squared neck, a drop waist; and pleating at the skirt was styled with black kitten heels.

I have loved a lot of Michelle red carpet choices; however, I’m on the fence with this one.

It’s the bows which given me a feeling that this dress may have been better suited to the likes of Camilla Belle, Emmy Rossum or Kiernan Shipka.

She would’ve looked better in the sheath version of this dress – sans bows.

Zhang Ziyi In Carolina Herrera - 'The Bling Ring' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Zhang Ziyi made her third appearance during the Cannes Film Festival this evening for ‘The Bling Ring’ premiere.

With the rain still coming down heavily in France, the actress selected a Fall 2012 gown by Carolina Herrera.

Her black-and-silver painterly print gown with a voluminous skirt styled with a stunning Chanel necklace takes me back to her princess days.

Opting to keep her wig on the headstand this evening, she swept her hair back into a sleek updo with a Jimmy Choo clutch providing the finishing touches to her look.

I’m sure I don’t need to ask you which look you preferred from last night and tonight.

Karolina Kurkova In Carolina Herrera - 2013 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup

Model Karolina Kurkova turned out for a day of sport at the 2013 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup at the Greenwich Polo Club in Connecticut, hosted on Wednesday during HRH Prince Harry’s visit to the United States.

After a punkish spin at the Met Gala last week, the statuesque stunner referenced another style era, the ’40s, with this retro-chic moment; a bell-sleeve dress from Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2013 collection.

Covered up in abstract blue dahlia blooms, Karolina strutted out an entirely different vibe from her customary cool-girl edge in this prim and proper frock.

But she was no wallflower and can obviously keep pace with old Hollywood glamour, too.

In fact, I almost prefer her more simplistic styling of the look to that seen on the runway, as she turned the neckline into a keyhole and threw off the dark-navy belt in favour of letting the ruched corset waist stand on its own.

The matching sandals were also cast aside for a straightforward pair of white pumps, while she topped off the ensemble with a casual side-parted ponytail and a petal-pink lippie.

Perfect for polo, or too plain?

Emily Blunt In Carolina Herrera - 2013 Met Gala

Emily Blunt went the route of all black for Monday’s punk-themed Met Gala in New York.

The actress wore a gown by Carolina Herrera.

The all black-ensemble proved it’s all in the details with a slit, key hole cutout, and buttons down the front of the dress.

Emily kept her makeup simple aside from a swipe of hot pink on her eyelids and a braided topknot style for her locks.

I’m a big fan of Emily’s sartorial choices but this look is not my favorite. I imagine Met Gala styles to be more exciting and over the top than this beautiful, but simple design.

Do you like Emily’s Met Gala style?
