Best Dressed Of The Week – Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture & Eddie Redmayne In Gucci

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture & Eddie Redmayne In Gucci

If BDOTW was a race this week, Lily Collins lapped the other contestants several times taking 55% of the votes.

It appears that you were just as blown away as I was by her stunning Eli Saab Couture ombre gown, which I’m certain will now appear on many BDOTY lists.

For the fellas, Eddie Redmayne had only a 1% lead over fellow Gucci-clad actor Ryan Reynolds.

I picked Eddie as I preferred the white shirt and pocket square breaking up the look, plus the luxe velvet fabric and impeccable tailoring. I’m sure this may have been a factor in your decision-making process too.

Felicity Jones In Elie Saab – ‘The Theory Of Everything’ New York Premiere

Felicity Jones In Elie Saab - 'The Theory Of Everything' New York Premiere

Felicity Jones attended ‘The Theory Of Everything’ New York Premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday (October 20) in New York City.

The actress looked very graceful wearing an Elie Saab Resort 2015 long-sleeved gown spliced with lace detailing styled with Ana Khouri black gold and white diamond Hematite earrings.

While I feel like the look is missing something – a statement ring; a rouge-coloured lip, perhaps – I’m still totally charmed by this effortless look.

Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Love, Rosie’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture - 'Love, Rosie' Rome Film Festival Premiere

Lily Collins looked ever so graceful on the red carpet yesterday evening (October 19) for the ‘Love, Rosie’ premiere during the 9th Rome Film Festival in Rome, Italy following the photocall during the day.

While some of you have bemoaned Elie Saab’s repetitive gowns, I’m sure your heart skipped several beats, like mine did, when you saw Lily take to the red carpet in this elegant Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture ombre gown.

It’s the one we all wanted to see on the red carpet, perhaps on the likes of Penelope Cruz, Mila Kunis or (wishful thinking) Marion Cotillard, but Lily more than holds her own in this breathtaking design.

Yet another bold lip, this time in a darker berry hue, perfects this look along with a retro wavy bob ‘do, with Vita Fede jewelry rounding out her look.

This has BDOTY contention written all over it. Will it make your list?

Yao Chen 姚晨 In Elie Saab – 14th Chinese Media Awards

Yao Chen 姚晨 In Elie Saab - 14th Chinese Media Awards

Yao Chen attended the 14th Chinese Media Awards on Saturday (October 11) in Beijing, China.

The actress looked as graceful as ever wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2014 gown in a rich burgundy hue.

I love how the asymmetric neckline and the waist are panelled with velvet, making this a dramatic choice for both her and the event.

So often these events can be full of princess gowns, so I love this more sultry choice styled with a tricoloured star-motif Kotur clutch.

Lizzy Caplan In Elie Saab – 2014 Variety Power of Women Event

Lizzy Caplan In Elie Saab - 2014 Variety Power of Women Event

Lizzy Caplan attended the 2014 Variety Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons on Friday (October 10) in Los Angeles, California.

Complementing the green backdrop with her mint-green Elie Saab Resort 2015 frock, I love how the A-line shape is spliced with lace in a supremely elegant way, with skirt panels beginning at the waist and skimming the hips to a figure-flattering effect.

Bionda Castana ‘Lana’ leather and mesh pointy pumps and an Emm Kuo clutch complemented her pastel-hued look.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab Couture – ‘It’s Only A Play’ Broadway Opening Night Performance

Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab Couture - 'It's Only A Play' Broadway Opening Night Performance

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the Broadway opening night performance of ‘It’s Only A Play’ held at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Monday (October 9) in New York City.

The actress opted to wear one of her favourite designers, Elie Saab, wearing a beautiful white lace dress embroidered with silk threads and sequins and encrusted in Swarovski crystals from the Fall 2014 Couture collection.

Her dress is stunning as we would expect, but the styling kills me.

I’m assuming her first thought was, what would Carrie do? Wear a contrasting bra which shows through the dress, of course.

What would work for Carrie doesn’t work here; I’m not a fan of dumbing down couture, so the quirky or edgy nature of what she was going for is totally lost on me.

Factor in the tan tights and it’s a no from me.
