Anna Paquin In David Koma – HBO’s ‘True Blood’ Season 6 Premiere

Anna Paquin In David Koma - HBO's 'True Blood' Season 6 Premiere

Anna Paquin attended HBO’s ‘True Blood’ season 6 premiere held at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California on Tuesday evening.

The actress, who had a major crush on all things Alexander McQueen, opted for a different British label this time: David Koma.

She selected a sporty black dress with a leather vinyl-esque skirt from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

With golden locks teased to perfection and swept to one side, she styled her look with a mesmerizing diamond Jacob & Co. necklace with pave-set white diamonds surrounding 11 special-cut diamonds, equally stunning earrings, a Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ clutch and Saint Laurent ‘Tribtoo’ pumps, which are apparently making a comeback, much to my disappointment.

From the ankle up, this is a great look for me.

Jennifer Lawrence In David Koma – 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

Jennifer Lawrence In David Koma - 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

It has been awhile since we’ve seen Jennifer Lawrence take to the red carpet. But the Oscar-winner turned out for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live, where she was a presenter.

The ‘Hunger Games’ actress had several surprises up her sleeve on Saturday night. She didn’t do Dior; she didn’t wear strapless; and she debuted a new tousled-bob haircut.

Her David Koma Fall 2013 figure-hugging cocktail frock featured a sheer neckline with black racer stripes at the shoulders and a flouncy skirt, which prevented this look from being too plain Jane.

Nicholas Kirkwood sandals, a geometric earring and statement cocktail ring, and her only flash of colour—hot-pink-lacquered nails—accessorized the flattering LBD.

With her nude lippie and sultry smoky eyes, I thought Jennifer boasted plenty of polished star quality for this showing.

Do you like her new look?

Andrea Riseborough In David Koma – LAX Airport

Andrea Riseborough In David Koma - LAX Airport

When it comes to airport style, we have seen the likes of Lady Gaga wear an Atelier Versace gown, compared to others like Rihanna who dress down in comfortable sweats.

Andrea Riseborough raised the bar by departing on a flight from LAX yesterday headed for JFK wearing a David Koma Fall 2013 gown.

No, the British actress isn’t becoming a diva à la Mariah Carey; actually, she was scheduled to attend a photocall in New York but the landing time wouldn’t have allowed her time to change on arrival and get to the photocall on time.

British designer David Koma isn’t known for his gowns, but that could be about to change; the likes of Kylie Minogue and Maria Sharapova love to show off their slender pins in his signature micro minis.

Andrea’s gown, which features a nude illusion yoke and panels on the sleeves, is actually a longer version of Look 14 – sans the leather skirt overlay – which took to the runway during London Fashion Week back in February.

I love the styling of the look, which featured red framed shades, a black studded Valentino bag and cream suede Casadei pumps.

Do you like this time-saving look, or do you feel that she should’ve changed into this gown at JFK?

Personally, I’m mildly obsessed with this look, partly because she wore it to the airport and also because red looks so good on her.

Maria Sharapova In David Koma – ‘Sugarpova’ Melbourne Launch

Maria Sharapova In David Koma - 'Sugarpova' Melbourne Launch

Maria Sharapova was soaking up the sun in Melbourne, Australia, where she was launching her candy collection, ‘Sugarpova’, at the Crown Entertainment Complex.

The David Koma Spring 2013 collection was full of tennis-inspired attire. I recently said that I wouldn’t be surprised to see Maria wearing one of the designer’s pieces; I’m glad to see my psychic powers (when it comes to fashion) are still in check.

Maria selected a sporty orange-and-nude jersey dress with a silk organza pleated skirt and leather trims, which showcased her toned pins.

With her hair swept up into a simple bun, she added nude Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and geometric-shaped earrings in gold and orange.

Kylie Minogue In David Koma – Hit Factory Live Christmas Cracker Concert

Kylie Minogue In David Koma - Hit Factory Live Christmas Cracker Concert

Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan reunited to perform their classic hit ‘Especially For You’ onstage for the first time in 23 years for the ‘Hit Factory Live Christmas Cracker’ concert held on the Friday before Christmas at the O2 Arena in London.

The event was an 80s extravaganza, with Sinitta and Rick Astley also on the bill.

Kylie rocked a David Koma Spring 2013 romper.

Her sleeveless romper, with a pleated miniskirt accented with bright-green patent panels, appears to be influenced by tennis players’ attire.

I won’t be surprised to see the Williams sisters and Maria Sharapova wearing this collection in the near future.

Black patent Dolce & Gabbana Mary Jane pumps completed the look.

This is the third look from this increasingly popular collection that we have seen worn by a singer.

BBC Sports Personality Of The Year

Jessica Ennis was joined by many other stars who took to the red carpet at the ExCel in London last night for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards.

Ellie Simmonds: The swimmer wore a flattering brightly coloured watermelon sleeveless dress, which she styled with cream platform pumps and a silver beaded clutch.

Jade Jones: Like Jessica, Jade also wore a Victoria Beckham dress, but hers was from the Victoria, Victoria Beckham Fall 2012 collection. The silk-jacquard and brocade mini dress showed off the toned legs of the gold-winning Taekwondo Olympian. Both her black accessories shimmered with a touch of sparkle, with a bright-red lip colour completing her look.

Victoria Pendleton: The cyclist is yet to meet a Stella McCartney dress she doesn’t like. She has pretty much worn the British designer exclusively since the 2012 Olympics. On this occasion she opted for a body-con fit dress with a flounced hemline, which she styled with those horrific Stella McCartney heels with a white platform and a tri-colour shoulder bag.

Katie Melua: I wasn’t expecting to see the singer at this event. She wore a David Koma Fall 2012 silk-jacquard belted dress with a shapely sheer yoke. You may remember that Maria Sharapova wore the same dress on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon back in August.
