The ‘Downton Abbey’ Wrap Party

The 'Downton Abbey' Wrap Party

The farewell tour for ‘Downton Abbey’ continues to be an all black and white affair, with the main stars sticking to this favoured colour palette for the wrap party held at The Ivy on Saturday (August 15) in London, England.

Laura Carmichael: I’m not usually too impressed with Laura’s red carpet looks, but on this occasion the red suede pumps keep me interested in her flirty LBD.

Michelle Dockery: I would’ve expected Michelle to don an LBD, but she wore a LWD courtesy of Lanvin; amped up with gold accessories to complement the gold tone straps.

Lily James: While there is plenty of chic appeal imbued in her Christian Dior look, I’m dying for a return of her blonde locks.

Dakota Johnson In Christian Dior – HFPA Annual Grants Banquet

Dakota Johnson In Christian Dior - HFPA Annual Grants Banquet

Dakota Johnson attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual Grants Banquet at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday (August 13) in Beverly Hills, California.

Like Emily Blunt, Dakota went the dark, demure route opting for a smart Christian Dior Spring 2015 coat dress.

Understated and feminine, this look would’ve gone with just about anything, so I wish she had a bit more fun in the shoe department swapping those red nail for red sandals.

Kate Mara In Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior & David Koma – Live! With Kelly & Michael, Out In New York, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Kate Mara In Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior & David Koma - Live! With Kelly & Michael, Out In New York, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Following her previous two looks, Kate Mara served up three more while continuing to promote her new movie, ‘Fantastic Four’ on Tuesday (August 4) in New York City.

Live! With Kelly & Michael: Continuing her love for shorter hemlines, the actress wore what is easily my favourite look yet. This charming, floral Giambattista Valli 60s-style dress has all the girlish qualities I expect from a Kate Mara look. Styled with her favourite Emm Kuo clutch, the look was topped off with pretty pink Sophia Webster ‘Coco Flamingo’ croc embossed pumps.

Out In New York City: On her way to a press junket, the actress wore her third Dior dress of the tour so far. While this tweed dress oozes sophistication, I just love youthful outlook which was further enhanced with her Dior metallic red wedges.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: Opting for a more darker tone, the actress’ third look of the day came courtesy of David Koma. While I am a huge fan of David Koma, I found myself slightly underwhelmed by this offering when placed alongside the other two. The look was styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Toga’ pumps.

Those of you fearing that this would be a uneventful promo tour going on her Sandro/Louis Vuitton look from last week, will be glad to see her reversal of fortunes.

Are you impressed by Kate so far on this promo tour?

Her premiere look will follow.

Kate Mara In Christian Dior – The Today Show & Apple Store Soho Presents: Meet the Actors: ‘Fantastic Four’

Kate Mara In Christian Dior - The Today Show & Apple Store Soho Presents Meet the Actors 'Fantastic Four'

Kate Mara continued to promote her latest movie, ‘Fantastic Four’ on Monday (August 3). The actress started her day on ‘The Today Show’, before moving onto the Apple Store Soho.

‘The Today Show': For her early morning start the actress wore a serenely pretty pristine white Dior dress. The minimalist design, which possessed fluidity in a softly flared manner via the pleated skirt, was styled with a pair of burgundy patent pumps (which provided quite an odd contrast) and a Emm Kuo clutch.

Apple Store Soho Presents: Meet the Actors: ‘Fantastic Four': So far Kate’s promo tour has been so-so, but the moment I saw this Dior red top styled with blush-hue shorts I instantly found her first BDOTW-worthy look. Imbued with a of touch of couture craftsmanship, I love how the top sculpts her figure. On this occasion the ensemble was styled with Jimmy CHoo ‘Anouk’ pink pumps that co-ordinate perfectly with her look, plus she took her Emm Kuo clutch out for another spin.

I know many of you hate her new pixie cut, but I have to say it has swiftly grown on me.

Who Wore Christian Dior Better…Kim Kardashian or Olivia Palermo?

Who Wore Christian Dior Better Kim Kardashian or Olivia Palermo

I never would’ve thought that Kim Kardashian and Olivia Palermo would ever wear the same clothes, but they did when they both donned this Christian Dior Spring 2015 skirt.

Kim wore it first while attending her book signing, while Olivia wore hers earlier this month to the M.A.C Cosmetics and Giambattista Valli Floral Obsession Ball.

Before we even get to the styling (of which Olivia’s far superior), Olivia wins for selecting the skirt in a size that fits.

Charlize Theron In Christian Dior – Premiere Of DIRECTV’s ‘Dark Places’

Charlize Theron In Christian Dior - Premiere Of DIRECTV's 'Dark Places'

Charlize Theron attended the premiere Of DIRECTV’s ‘Dark Places’ at Harmony Gold Theatre on Tuesday (July 21) in Los Angeles, California.

I was pretty shocked to see the star not wearing black on this occasion.

Her Dior Resort 2016 pleated and printed light pink and yellow silk top and skirt is one of her most playful and colourful looks of the year.

Some might render this too twee for South African actress, and while it does seem perfect for Kiernan Shipka, I think Charlize carries the look off with great aplomb – despite the fit issues around the bust.

Styled with nude sandals, Harry Winston diamond jewels and a pink Dior clutch, she opted to complete the look with a braided updo.
