Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Clotilde Courau In Elie Saab Couture & Valentino - Marrakesh Film Festival

So far, French actress Clotilde Courau has made two red carpet appearances during the 13th Marrakesh International Film Festival.

Opening Ceremony: Her first look came courtesy of her favourite designer, Elie Saab. She wore a nude Spring 2013 Couture gown with exquisite embroidered details. Let’s hope she didn’t stand too close to Elsa Zylberstein at the same event, because Elsa’s Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture gown is similar to Clotilde’s Spring 2013 Couture gown.

Royal Gala Dinner: On Saturday evening, Clotilde attended the royal gala dinner wearing a neon-yellow lace Valentino Resort 2014 long-sleeved gown, which she styled with a black Roger Vivier clutch. I wasn’t immediately a fan of the clutch, but then realised how hard it must be to style a neon-yellow gown, so opting for black was probably the easiest and safest choice. You may remember that Angie Harmon wore this same gown during Paris Fashion Week.

Elsa Zylberstein In Zuhair Murad Couture, Elie Saab & Christian Dior - Marrakech Film Festival

We are three days into the Marrakech International Film Festival, which kick-started on Friday in Morocco, and we have three looks from Elsa Zylberstein.

Opening Ceremony: At the opening ceremony, the French actress wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture nude high-neck gown with lace embroidery. The first words that came to mind were “mother-to-be”. That was until I saw her next look.

‘A Thousand Times Good Night’ Premiere: Wearing a more streamline Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 black beaded gown, “mother-to-be” wasn’t my first thought. More like “what a chic, elegant look”, which she styled with a sleek centre-parted bun, a cuff and a satin bow-accented clutch.

‘Like Father, Like Son’ Premiere: Dior dresses are really dominating this festival. I’m guessing it was a prerequisite in order to attend, or the brand was smart enough to take their fabulous dresses to the event knowing they would have beautiful actresses ready to snap up their red-carpet-ready looks. Elsa wore a black-and-white strapless corseted dress with a draped detail at the hip, which you may remember we first saw on Jennifer Lawrence during Cannes Film Festival. Carrying the same black clutch from the night before, Elsa added a pair of stunning earrings and black Louboutin pumps to her look.

Carina Lau In Elie Saab Couture - 50th Golden Horse Awards

Carina Lau rounded out at trio of Elie Saab Couture gowns to take to the red carpet yesterday evening for the 50th Golden Horse Awards, held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan.

Saving the best Elie Saab Couture gown until last, this silver embellished, taupe long-sleeve gown featuring a scarf neckline which gently falls down her back to meet the train, couldn’t be more beautifully showcased than it is here.

Even those dazzling drop earrings can’t upstage this beautiful gown.

Carina’s red carpet looks have veered on the twee side for most of the year, so this is easily one of her best looks of the year.

Li Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture - 50th Golden Horse Awards

Li Bingbing gave us our second Elie Saab Couture gown on the red carpet of the 50th Golden Horse Awards, held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan yesterday evening.

The actress wore a blue sheer long-sleeve Spring 2013 Couture gown with beautifully crafted, lightly embellished appliqués.

I’m happy to see the illusion neckline doing its job here for a refreshing change. The gown is quite exquisite.

Pear drop earrings and a diamond cocktail ring completed her look

I’m choosing to ignore the diamante encrusted platform heels.

Maggie Cheung In Elie Saab Couture - 50th Golden Horse Awards

Maggie Cheung looked breath-taking while taking to the red carpet of the 50th Golden Horse Awards held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan yesterday evening.

She couldn’t have looked more regal in her royal-blue Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture gown.

The lightly embellished belted gown with lace sleeves and a lace yoke, was styled with diamond encrusted jewels and a cute teddy-shaped chain accented bag with an ‘M’ (for Maggie no doubt) motif.

As perfect as this look is, to nitpick I would’ve lost the bracelets as the necklace and earrings were sufficient.

Rita Ora In Elie Saab - Out In Amsterdam

This weekend Rita Ora posted a picture on her Instagram which I hadn’t seen before, so in going in search of the picture I discovered that it was taken while she was in Amsterdam, Netherlands following her appearance at the EMAs.

I’m not sure where she was going (possibly the show’s after-party), but she should’ve saved this Elie Saab beauty for a red-carpet event.

The long-sleeved coral gown with a lace bodice and crepe wraparound skirt was of course styled (let down) with that harsh red lip.

Her mix of silver and gold jewels was also overplayed here, with simple gold strappy sandals completing the look.

Best Dressed Of The Week - Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture & Liam Hemsworth In Dolce & Gabbana

I had a hard time narrowing down ten looks for best dressed this week, but you had no trouble picking a winner; Elizabeth Banks’ Elie Saab Couture gown, which she wore to the Berlin ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ premiere, was your winner by a country mile and I agreed with you.

Liam Hemsworth’s Dolce & Gabbana suit worn to the Rome premiere of ‘The Hunger Games’ charmed you this week. The actor had five great suits last week, and this sleek Italian suit stood out for me too.

Five looks down; two more (LA premiere (Monday) and New York premiere (Wednesday)) to go.
