Ashley Benson In Jay Godfrey & Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Spring Breakers’ Toronto Film Festival

Ashley Benson hit the press trail for her film ‘Spring Breakers’ during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival yesterday.

For the photocall, the actress chose a nude-and-black dress by Jade Godfrey. This was followed by a Dolce & Gabbana gown for the premiere.

Seeing these two photographs together, I’m reminded of the scene in Cinderella where the Fairy Godmother waves her wand and turns Cinder’s dour day dress into a concoction fit for a prince.

After all, the tones are similar and all that’s been done to the hair is a new side parting.

That’s not to say I dislike the Jay Godfrey dress, I’m just not that excited by it. The Dolce & Gabbana gown, however, works much better.

What do you think?

Selena Gomez In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Spring Breakers’ Toronto Film Festival

Selena Gomez went for va-va-voom for the ‘Spring Breakers’ photocall during the Toronto Film Festival yesterday afternoon.

The actress chose a form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana dress for the occasion.

Like her co-star Vanessa Hudgens, Selena has gone for a very grown up look here. And as much as I’d like to fault her on it, I can’t.

The leopard print could’ve been considered tacky if the dress had ended above her knee. The bust may also be a little revealing, but the emphasis is taken away by her free flowing hair.

The Jimmy Choo Lance sandals and light bronze make up are a winning addition.

Eva Mendes In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Eva Mendes walked the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival last night with boyfriend Ryan Gosling for the premiere of their film ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’.

The actress opted for a semi-sheer Dolce & Gabbana dress from the designers’ Fall 2012 collection for the event.

This is a difficult look to pull off on the red carpet. The busy lace will always detract from the person wearing it.

She’s attempted to keep her accesories to a minimum with the simple Casadei blade pumps and clutch, and though I admire Eva’s bravery with the Prada turban, I’m not sure it works here.

Selena Gomez In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Spring Breakers’ Venice Film Festival Photocall

On Wednesday afternoon Selena Gomez took to the red carpet at the Palazzo del Casino for the Venice Film Festival photocall for her latest movie, ‘Spring Breakers’.

The young starlet looked grown up without looking too mature wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012 frock.

Her super chic black lace dress with gold embroidered details was styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ strappy sandals and gold Melinda Maria cluster earrings.

A loose updo and flawless makeup concluded her look.

Selena tends to be hit-or-miss on the red carpet. This is most definitely a hit.

Do you agree?

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana Win ‘Designer of the Year’ at the GQ Man of the Year 2012

Congratulations to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for winning ‘Designer of the Year’ at last night’s GQ Men of the Year 2012 awards.

The Italian design duo were presented with the award by their close personal friend, muse and compatriot Monica Bellucci (left). Model and socialite, Bianca Brandolini D’Adda (right), was also in attendance.

Naturally, both women wore Dolce & Gabbana, though Monica chose a classic floor-length black lace gown, which she paired with a matching black clutch and long, loose tresses.

Bianca opted for a more daring look in a beaded neutral mini and strappy silver sandals. A delicate bracelet and fishtail braid completed the ensemble.

Zhang Zilin In Dolce & Gabbana – 2012 Bazaar Charity Night

Chinese model Zhang Zilin joined actress and compatriot Zhang Ziyi on the red carpet for the 2012 Bazaar Charity Night in Beijing, China, on Saturday evening.

Both women looked stunning in their heavily embroidered dresses. The similarities, however, ended there. Zilin’s Dolce & Gabanna Fall 2012 number, with its black and gold details, is all class, whereas Ziyi’s Georges Chakra gown is eye-catchingly edgy.

To complete her elegant look, Zilin opted for lace-embellished Dolce & Gabbana ankle boots, a satin clutch and large earrings. A simple updo and natural make up were the perfection additions.

I’m on the fence over which look I prefer. How about you?
