Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Alexa Chung In Carven - It Book Launch Party

Alexa Chung attended the launch of her first book ‘It’ at Liberty in London yesterday evening.

The book, which is a collection of personal insights into her fashion influences, style tips, drawings and photographs, is released today.

Continuing her love for French dressing of the Carven kind, the author wore an off-the-shoulder combo dress featuring a blue lace scalloped-neckline bodice, circular flounce and a chocolate-brown full skirt from the brand’s Resort 2014 collection.

I am not a fan of the shoes, but then I don’t think I have ever liked Alexa’s footwear choices; however, I do love the retro appeal of her Dolce & Gabbana ‘Agata’ handbag, simple updo and flawless makeup.

Many of you disliked her GQ Awards Carven look, so do you prefer this look?

Alexa Chung In Carven - GQ Men of the Year Awards

Alexa Chung took to the red carpet at The Royal Opera House in London this evening for the 2013 GQ Men Of The Year Awards.

The British star wore a Carven Fall 2013 long-sleeved metallic faille top and matching skirt in a light-blue hue, which she disappointingly, but not surprisingly, styled with black pumps.

My favourite part of this look is her Chanel Perspex chain-accented clutch in the shape of a Chanel No. 5 bottle from the Resort 2014 collection.

Normally one to scream for a pop of colour, I think the red lips are too stark for this look on this occasion.

Do you agree?

Diane Kruger In Carven - Hollywood Foreign Press Association's 2013 Installation Luncheon

Diane Kruger was also at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel yesterday afternoon in California, where she was joined onstage by actor Demian Bishir.

The German actress put a fashion-girl spin on plaid, donning a Carven Resort 2014 strapless, drape-front midi dress, complete with side pockets. Who knew tartan could look this fresh?

Veering away from the flat loafer-sandals seen on the model, she moderately dressed up the frock with a pair of dove-grey Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals that matched the muted plaid tones.

I nearly expected to see the ubiquitous white pump make an appearance here, so I was pleasantly surprised with the subtle change of pace.

A loose side ponytail and a radiant, berry lip put the finishing touches on this effortlessly chic entrance.

Emma Watson In Carven - Caroline Sieber & Fritz Von Westenholz' Wedding

Emma Watson travelled from New York to Austria to attend the wedding of her friend and stylist Caroline Sieber with Fritz Von Westenholz on Saturday.

‘The Bling Ring’ actress wore a pretty Carven Spring 2013 safari-print dress.

Cut-away details expose subtle sections of skin, while the bell skirt and heavy linen maintain a typical Carven demure dynamic.

The knee-length dress was paired with simple black pumps, barely there makeup and a gold bracelet.

This is actually the third time we are seeing this dress worn by a celeb.

You may remember that fellow Brit actress Keira Knightley was the first, followed by Zoe Saldana.

Who Wore Carven Better Leila Bekhti or Victoria Beckham

French actress Leila Bekhti Carven wore the ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’ skirt from the Spring 2013 collection to the ‘Jury Un Certain Regard’ photo call during Cannes last year.

The artistic print called for a simple shirt as presented on the runway. Leila opted for white with navy peep toes completing her look.

Earlier this month, Victoria Beckham was spotted at LAX also pairing her skirt with a white shirt completing her look with Chloe wedges.

There really isn’t much in it apart from the shoes. As I prefer VB tan wedges, Victoria wins for me.
