Emily Ratajkowski In Cushnie et Ochs – Haute Living Party

Emily Ratajkowski In Cushnie et Ochs - Haute Living Party

Emily Ratajkowski attended the Haute Living party held at Nobu Malibu on Monday (December 15) in Malibu, California.

New York design duo Cushnie et Ochs constantly prove their unrivalled skills when it comes to sensuous style, as they did with this cut-out neoprene Pre-Fall 2014 dress.

The figure-skimming flared silhouette rendered in optic white is alluring on its own, yet Emily’s oozing sex appeal takes this into another realm of sexy.

While the dark rouge lip doesn’t work for me on this occasion, I do love her neutral nude accessories.

Is there such a thing as an LWD being too sexy?

Models @ The 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After-Party

Models @ The 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show After-Party

Aside from Taylor Swift’s after-party look, there wasn’t much to shout about on the red carpet at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held at London’s Earls Court on Tuesday (December 2) which had a distinct black or white theme.

Karlie Kloss: Standing out for its non-revealing nature was Karlie Kloss’s look. The figure-hugging silhouette and sexy slit worked in an artful juxtaposition with the demure high neck and almost Victorian bow to the neckline of the Alexander McQueen dress, which was styled with a skull-clasp clutch.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Too tight and so tacky. That pretty much sums up my feelings about this ridiculous yet expected Balmain Spring 2015 look. A sure contender for WDOTY.

Candice Swanepoel: Also taking the revealing route was Candice, whose Zuhair Murad white floral embroidered sheer long-sleeve Spring 2015 gown left precious little to the imagination.

Leighton Meester In Cushnie et Ochs – ‘Life Partners’ LA Premiere

Leighton Meester In Cushnie et Ochs - 'Life Partners' LA Premiere

Leighton Meester attended the LA premiere of ‘Life Partners’ held at ArcLight Hollywood on Tuesday (November 18) in Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a strapless neoprene Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2015 dress featuring a variegated stripe pattern and a crossover detail, with the brand’s signature cut-out work at the bodice.

Fresh, chic, with a little sassy attitude to boot, this figure-framing dress creates the perfect feminine silhouette.

I love the additional pops of colour via the Amanda Pearl green and gold-tone clutch plus the flame-red lip; they help alleviate my disappointment when it comes to her shoe choice.

Don’t get me wrong; these Oscar Tiye ankle-strap pumps go perfectly with the look, but this is coming from the girl once regarded as having the best shoe game in Hollywood so expectations in the shoe department are always high.

Kim Kardashian In Cushnie et Ochs – 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala

Kim Kardashian In Cushnie et Ochs - 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala

Kim Kardashian attended the 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala on Saturday (November 1) in Los Angeles alongside hubby Kanye West.

There’s no disguising it or skirting around the issue, this Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2015 petrol-blue one-shoulder gown featuring a draped neck, thin halter strap and asymmetrical hem is way too tight around the hips for her.

Love her or loathe her, this is unforgivable considering the slit was likely to come undone at the asymmetrical seam once she sat down.

Even though I can’t say I’m her biggest fan, I can’t believe even she made such a bad faux pas.

The Tom Ford shoes are the only thing I would save from the look, as the diamond choker overcooked it.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Jessica Chastain in Saint Laurent, Padma Lakshmi in Cushnie et Ochs & Eddie Redmayne in Tom Ford

Best Dressed Of The Week - Jessica Chastain in Saint Laurent, Padma Lakshmi in Cushnie et Ochs & Eddie Redmayne in Tom Ford

Jessica Chastain in her fairytale Saint Laurent gown was your best dressed this week.

I was somewhat surprised by the large margin of the lead considering the comments were that this gown was too prom-like and some objected to the embellished strap.

I, on the other hand, was picked up and swept away by Padma Lakshmi in her jaw-dropping Cushnie et Ochs gown.

The colour, her poise, the fit: it was a win, win, win all round and a contender for BDOTY for me.

As many of you said, your vote for Eddie Redmayne wasn’t just for this Tom Ford suit, but for all his looks, as each one was just as good as the last. He continues to steamroller the competition by such a large margin.

Padma Lakshmi In Cushnie et Ochs – 11th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Padma Lakshmi In Cushnie et Ochs - 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Padma Lakshmi attended the 9th annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball held at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday (October 30) in New York City.

I was totally bowled over by the ‘Top Chef’ TV host wearing this breathtaking Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2014 cut-out petrol-blue silk-crepe gown featuring split molded cups, a keyhole at the waist and a front split at the skirt.

Exuding the confidence and sex appeal of a modern icon, my jaw may never return to its original position.

If you were hoping to vote for Padma in her Naeem Khan gown for BDOTW, this gown will supersede it.

Note to Lea Michele and Naya Rivera: This is how you do sexy without trying so damn hard.
