Zoe Saldana In Elie Saab – ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Mexico Premiere

Zoe Saldana In Elie Saab - ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Mexico Premiere

Zoe Saldana looked white hot for the Mexico premiere of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ on Tuesday evening.

The actress wore an Elie Saab Fall 2013 white jumpsuit for the occasion without the runway cape.

As you know, I go weak at the knees at the sight of all but one jumpsuit, and that was definitely the case upon seeing Zoe’s white long-sleeved look with a chiffon bodice – revealing her lace brassiere – and waist-accenting cummerbund.

With her long pants you can’t see her shoes in this shot, but from other pictures it appears she wore champagne-coloured platforms, when I would’ve expected white.

A red manicure to match her pout and a slicked-back ponytail completed her BDOTW-worthy look.

Queen Beatrix Of The Netherlands Abdication State Dinner

Queen Beatrix Of The Netherlands Abdication State Dinner

Many more royals took to the red carpet at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum for the dinner thrown by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands to celebrate her abdication and her son’s investiture yesterday evening.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark: As always, my heart did flutter when I saw Mary on the red carpet.
Looking nothing short of spectacular and every inch a modern princess, she wore a Birgit Hallstein gown, a designer she has worn a few times before. Her off-the-shoulder blush gown with an embellished bodice was accented with a satin waistband, with a Bottega Veneta clutch, Prada pumps and her wedding tiara completing her look.

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: While this gorgeous floral confection didn’t take to the runway, the pretty print is distinctive of the Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 collection. I really love the simplicity of this look, as much as the more showy gowns at this event. Even her tiara was slightly modest compared to the others.

Michelle Dockery In Elie Saab – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Michelle Dockery In Elie Saab - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association

Michelle Dockery brought some British flair to the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday night in Washington, D.C.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress showed us our highly anticipated second glance at Elie Saab’s Fall 2013 collection, after Jessica Biel debuted it at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball.

This violet-purple peplum gown with sheer chiffon inlay is another example of a sequin- and bead-free moment from the bling-loving designer. Not that the look was completely shine-free, as metallic bangles and a clutch played nicely with the sculpted belt.

Michelle wore the dress well, although this is a look that’s made for walking, as I missed the magic of the gown’s runway movement.

A glam updo and a hot-fuchsia glossed pout finished the story, although with this ultra-violet colour, I would have liked to have seen a slightly more neutral lippie.

Jessica Biel In Elie Saab – Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball

Jessica Biel In Elie Saab - Tiffany & Co Blue Book Ball

Joining Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson in wearing something blue, Jessica Biel attended the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress gives us our first, long-awaited look at the Elie Saab Fall 2013 collection.

She wore a navy floral-print gown, featuring sheer panelling on the skirt, and a contrasting blue leather belt.

Having been quite critical of Jessica’s looks in the past, I’m glad to see her doing justice to this gorgeous gown.

Opting for barely there makeup – though not as severe as Carey Mulligan’s – the actress completed her look with Tiffany & Co. jewels and side-swept waves with a diamond brooch accent.

Elie Saab might be known as the ‘Bling King’, but this gorgeous sequin-free gown proves he isn’t a one-trick pony.

Elanne Kwong In Elie Saab – 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Elanne Kwong In Elie Saab - 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Elanne Kwong looked elegant on the red carpet at the 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards on Saturday.

The actress and singer wore a simple lace Elie Saab gown.

While Elanne looks flawlessly chic in this graceful gown, I can’t help but feel like it’s just lacking a little spark.

Her hair, makeup and smile are all charming, but I wish there was one piece of color or interest here.

I’m thinking a bold red lip would have taken this to another level of stunning, but I would even settle of a red mani for a little pop.

What do you think? Just right, or not enough?
