Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture - 2013 BAFTA AwardsEngaging in somewhat of a red-carpet sprint, a visibly chilled Marion Cotillard battled the elements as she quickly posed amid umbrellas and photographers’ flashes at the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London.

After wearing a black-and-white cocktail dress from the Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2013 collection at the BAFTA nominees party, she played the Dior card yet again—except in far more dramatic fashion.

Wearing a confection from designer Raf Simons’ Spring 2013 Couture runway, the ‘Rust and Bone’ Leading Actress nominee made a true fashion-girl move; she even eschewed a shrug or overcoat to better show off the sunny yellow gown that could have cleared overcast skies with its radiant colour.

The billowing drape of the dress and the peek of skin from the sheer side panel brought the look into style-forward territory and made it a bit of a red-carpet risk.

The addition of a diamond necklace and Marion’s retro waves and red lip delivered a touch of old Hollywood glam. But I keep wondering if this look may have fared even better without the necklace.

You may recall that Jennifer Lawrence wore a navy gown from this collection at the 2013 SAG Awards.

Were you applauding for Marion’s entrance, or did it come apart at the seams?

Alicia Vikander In Christian Dior – 2013 BAFTA Awards

2013BAFTA_AliciaVikander.jpg-

Alicia Vikander embraced a minimalist aesthetic at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, held at The Royal Opera House in London on Sunday evening.

While most of us would have expected the BAFTA Rising Star Award nominee to glam it up on the red carpet for the big night, the young Swedish actress chose to keep things relatively restrained.

Alicia wore a black sleeveless round-neck Christian Dior gown with an asymmetrical hem and eye-catching cut-out back detail. She teamed her look with a pair of classic satin pointy-toe pumps and dangling earrings.

This choice may not have been high on impact, but I think this red carpet rising star looked stunning even without the bells and whistles. If I could change anything, it would be to infuse a bit of drama to her hair style.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior – BAFTA Nominees Party

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior - BAFTA Nominees Party

Marion Cotillard maintained her sartorial allegiance to Christian Dior at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party held at Asprey London.

For this occasion, the ‘Rust & Bone’ actress chose a black and white houndstooth print dress with an A-line silhouette from the Dior Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

The contrasting graphic prints cropped waist-defining layered bodice and full skirt set Cotilard’s look apart at the party.

Paired with bold fiery red pointy slingback Dior pumps and a Dior matching statement necklace, this chic dress packed the right dose of uptown and downtown flair to make a sensational mark.

A tamed slicked back hairstyle kept the focus on her modern look and rosy makeup.

Angelababy In Christian Dior – ‘Together’ Beijing Premiere

Angelababy In Christian Dior R13 - 'Together’ Beijing Premiere

Angelababy attended the ‘Together’ premiere held in Beijing, China on Monday.

The actress wore a Christian Dior Resort 2013 flared rose-coloured dress.

Her pretty dress with an open back was styled with gold jewels and her favourite Giuseppe Zanotti quadruple-stacked black peep-toes.

As pretty as her dress is, once again we have a look ruined by those god-awful platform heels. First Zhang Ziyi and now Angelababy.

I’m hoping this trend to wear these types of shoes in Asia dies down soon.

Zhang Ziyi In Christian Dior Couture – ‘The Grandmaster’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

Zhang Ziyi In Christian Dior Couture - 'The Grandmaster' Berlinale Film Festival PremiereZhang Ziyi waltzed her way down the red carpet on Thursday night for the premiere of ‘The Grandmaster’ during the 63rd Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany.

For her gown, the Chinese actress looked back a few seasons to designer Raf Simons’ Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection.

I can’t help but love the glamour of this ‘New Look’-inspired silhouette, what with its cinched bodice and classic full skirt. The dress’s painterly tie-dye effect in shades of grassy green and lime only increased the drama and made this look particularly electric.

But with the addition of the fur shrug, a diamond necklace and earrings, and a Fendi handbag, not to mention those towering Christian Louboutin pumps, I found myself experiencing sensory overload.

The dress and its statement print speaks for itself without the clutter (beautiful clutter as it were) of the abundant accessories.

At least Zhang slicked her hair into a chic updo and opted for a soft pink pout instead of the runway’s neon hues. Anything else would have been far too much.

If you’re having a slight déjà vu moment as I did, it’s because Jennifer Lawrence wore a very similar gown from Dior’s Fall 2012 offering last September, except in a different, inky colour variation.

Isabel Lucas In Christian Dior – Christian Dior Sydney Boutique Opening

Isabel Lucas In Christian Dior - Christian Dior Sydney Boutique Opening

Isabel Lucas attended the opening of the Christian Dior boutique in Sydney, Australia today.

The blonde-haired beauty wore one of the bolder pieces from the Christian Dior Spring 2013 collection, which was this beautiful multi-coloured metallic organza strapless dress with a waterfall skirt.

My first thought was thank God the red carpet is black, as I fear her shoe choice may have put me off the overall look.

A green pair of strappy sandals would’ve been my choice, but I guess Isabel did make the right choice by allowing the focus to fall solely on the dress.

How would you’ve styled this look?

2nd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Round Up

2nd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Round Up

There were plenty more divine ladies besides Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman who took to the red carpet on Wednesday evening for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards, held at The Star in Sydney, Australia.

Jessica Mauboy: The singer/actress picked up her first AACTA Award – Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘Sapphires’ – wearing a breathtaking Steven Khalil red gown. This is not the first time I have been wowed by the Australian designer, who is also loved by actress Kate Ritchie.

Gracie Otto: This is the second run out for this Gucci Spring 2013 saffron-yellow gown, as Bipasha Basu wore this gown on Monday. Gracie had the good sense to kept this look minimal and not overwhelm it with unnecessary jewels, styling the look with a clear Gucci clutch from the same collection.

Essie Davis: The actress certainly knows how to make an entrance. She was simply captivating wearing a red Leah Da Gloria floor-sweeping gown with a slashed neckline and lace panels on the three-quarter-length sleeves. The three red gowns ruled this red carpet: Cate, Jessica and Essie.
