Thandie Newton In Erdem – Jimmy Choo & Esquire Party

Thandie Newton In Erdem - Jimmy Choo & Esquire Party

Thandie Newton was back out on Sunday evening, helping Jimmy Choo and Esquire celebrate the London Collections: Men opening party, which was held at LouLou’s in London on Sunday evening.

The actress once again wore a London-based designer, selecting a look from Erdem’s Spring 2013 collection.

Her pretty halter frock, with pink-and-citrus floral embroidery and a satin bodice, was styled with a gold Jimmy Choo clutch and hot-pink Jimmy Choo open-toe booties.

While I understand that Thandie might have wanted to dial down the overt girliness of the Erdem frock with the booties, they don’t work for me.

I wish she had selected one of the brand’s sandals.

Rashida Jones In Erdem – Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Rashida Jones In Erdem - Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Rashida Jones lounged around the red carpet at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, where she picked up the Filmmaker prize, on Tuesday at London’s Berkeley Square Gardens.

Donning her bedroom best, she tried out a dark navy look from Erdem’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection that was splashed with a bright English garden floral print.

She wore a modified version from the designer’s lookbook, sans the matching, sheer organza cape, but I wonder if it would have added some interesting drama while lessening the PJs effect.

There’s no doubt the pyjama silhouette is hot right now. I’m just not sure this trendy ensemble was working for the occasion, despite Rashida’s efforts to dress it up with metallic-and-black pumps and a bold red lippie.

Does this look strike you as way cool, or just too casual?

Lena Dunham In Erdem – 2013 Met Gala

lenadunham

‘Girls’ star Lena Dunham attended the 2013 Met Gala in New York City with designer Erdem Moralioglu by her side.

For the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fashion party of the year, she covered up in a custom Erdem gown that was flattering but verging on more forgettable territory—especially on the radically themed red carpet of this year’s event.

With the high bib neckline and the frills, what immediately came to mind was ‘prairie-girl-punk.’

On this occasion, Lena’s tattoos work quite well with the rebel theme, while a smokey eye and nude lippie, along with a slicked-back bob finished the look.

She’s sometimes been a red-carpet enigma, puzzling us with her sartorial statements. How do you think she fares at the Met?

Alexa Chung In Erdem – 2013 Met Gala

Alexa Chung In Erdem - 2013 Met Gala

The always fashion-forward Alexa Chung wore a dress from Erdem’s Fall 2013 collection to the Met Gala.

I don’t read punk here, but I do love the subtle peek-a-boo factor of this dress. Bare midriffs are a huge trend this spring, and I like the trendy-without-being vulgar version this dress offers. I also really like the effect of wearing the black hotpants under the dress.

My one fashion complaint here is the extra high neckline, which takes this into victorian territory–it looks better on the runway stopping at the collarbone.

Alexa’s soft updo and simple makeup are well paired with the bold dress–Alexa never looks overdone, and tonight is no different.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Erdem – Manchester Visit

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge - Manchester Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge finally showed off her growing baby bump when she paid a visit to Willows Primary School in Manchester, England this afternoon, where she helped to launch a project to help reduce the impact of drug and alcohol addiction on children in the UK.

On such a glorious day she could no longer hide her bump under a coat, so she wore an Erdem silk Sophia Visconti-bloom shift dress from the Resort 2013 collection.

She teamed her dress with navy-blue suede pumps, a navy clutch and her glossy locks.

Let’s pray the sun comes out for all her official engagements so we will get to see plenty more of her maternity style sans coat.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Erdem – ‘Iron Man 3’ Paris Premiere

Gwyneth Paltrow In Erdem - 'Iron Man 3' Paris Premiere

Gwyneth Paltrow attended her first premiere for ‘Iron Man 3’, which was held at Le Grand Rex in Paris, France on Sunday evening.

The actress gave us our first look from Erdem’s darker Fall 2013 collection.

Her navy top and pants with colourful signature embroidery was sadly let down by her hair styling.

The top, which features a wrap-around capelet-like detail, is competing with her hair.

As showcased by the model, her hair didn’t need to be up, but most definitely pushed back off her shoulders, but there is a possibility that Gwyneth’s hair was too short to to this successfully.

Navy Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps completed her look.

Does Gwynie’s hairstyle put you off this look, do you love it regardless, or is this too avant garde for the mini-dress-loving actress to pull off?
