Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab 2013 BAFTA AwardsSarah Jessica Parker attended the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

You could say her dark Elie Saab ensemble from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection somewhat played to the cold and rainy mood.

It was a solid jumpsuit in theory, with its structured bodice and waist detail and the mini keyhole, all paired with plain black pumps. (SJP was no doubt much warmer than some of the other stars on the red carpet, too.)

But the end result just didn’t translate quite as dynamically for this actress.

In this case, the addition of the metallic gold belt from the designer’s lookbook might have provided a sleeker, waist-defining edge.

The diamond necklace, which perhaps was added to dress up the look, didn’t work well with the high neckline.

All in all, I couldn’t help but be a bit underwhelmed, if only because I was expecting a bolder statement, especially given the recent looks (remember the furry blue Misha Nonoo ensemble and the exhilarating fuchsia Maison Martin Margiela gown) we’ve seen from this stylista.

No matter; SJP will no doubt up the style-forward ante on another occasion.

Amy Adams In Elie Saab Couture – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Amy Adams was the picture of haute glamour at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, held at The Royal Opera House on Sunday in London.

Any star knows you can never go wrong with an Elie Saab gown. So Amy, nominated for the ‘Best Supporting Actress’, opted for a smoldering number from the designers Fall 2012 Couture collection for her grand entrance.

The lustrous ebony evening frock with Chantilly lace and exquisite beading hit a high note, as did her top knot.

A daring front slit added an unexpected touch of sex appeal to the look and gave us a peek at her gold Casadei sandals.

Does Amy make it onto your best dressed list?

Amanda Seyfried In Elie Saab – ‘Lovelace’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Amanda Seyfried In Elie Saab - ‘Lovelace’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Following this afternoon’s photocall, Amanda Seyfried took the red carpet again for the ‘Lovelace’ Berlinale Film Festival premiere which was actually her third look on Saturday in Berlin, Germany.

I loved this blue Elie Saab Spring 2013 lace gown featuring tiered lace ruffles and horizontal satin stripes on the runway, but the allure is lost with the beige lining.

Granted she can’t wear a sheer lace gown the red carpet without eyebrows being raised, but I’m finding it hard to get excited about Amanda’s gown as she’s presented it.

Alexandre Birman heels, Tiffany & Co. jewels, a dark pink lip colour and soft wavy locks provided the finishing touches to her look.

Hilary Swank In Elie Saab Couture – Vienna Opera Ball

Hilary Swank In Elie Saab Couture - Vienna Opera Ball

Sadly, this is the best picture I could find of Hilary Swank attending the Vienna Opera Ball, held at the Wiener Staatsoper in Austria yesterday evening.

The few pictures of her on the red carpet had burly bodyguards surrounding her, not allowing anyone to take her picture, which surely defeats the purpose of her being invited – but I digress.

What should’ve been a beautiful picture of her on the red carpet is a paparazzi picture of her leaving the Hotel Bristol.

My greatest disappointment is the harsh flash photography, which blurs the exquisite detailing on her nude Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture gown.

Elie Saab and Hilary Swank has always been a winning combination and this outing, flash photography aside, is no different.

Simple and elegant is always the best way to go in a stunning embellished gown, and that’s the route Hilary took, with neutral makeup and simple stud earrings completing her look.

Sonam Kapoor In Elie Saab – Hindustan Times Style Awards 2013

Sonam Kapoor Elie Saab PF13 - Hindustan Times Style Awards 2013

Sonam Kapoor attended the Hindustan Times Style Awards 2013 held at Hotel ITC Grand Central in Parel, Mumbai on Thursday evening.

The Indian actress wore a black Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 gown with cross-strap detailing and a gold-accented waist belt, which is our first look at this collection on the red carpet.

Her dress might have been considered ho-hum had it not been for the styling.

Fierce wing-tip eyes, a gold Elie Saab box clutch and on-trend ear cuffs courtesy of Valliyan by Nitya accessorized her look.

You’ll be forgiven if Doctor Spock comes to mind when looking at her ear cuffs.
