Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Escada – Vanity Fair and FIAT Celebration Of ‘Young Hollywood’

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Escada - Vanity Fair and FIAT

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the Vanity Fair and FIAT celebration of ‘Young Hollywood’ held at No Vacancy on Tuesday (February 25) in Los Angeles, California.

Adding a lively hit of spring florals in an Escada Spring 2014 ‘Segunda’ knit dress, Gugu looked undeniably charming.

The black blazer and pointed courts added a formal, sophisticated spin while a sleek clutch added party-worthy polish.

Gugu’s bouncy up-do and soft pink lip and metallic eyes culminated in an amazingly flawless look.

Overall, I think this is a smart and attractive look with a few delightful qualities which really help lift it from ordinary to beautiful. Gugu seems to be going from strength to strength in the wardrobe department and I can’t wait to see what’s next from this rising star. Do you agree?

You can buy Gugu’s Escada’Segunda’ Jacquard Knit Dress from Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.

Brie Larson In Escada – ‘The LEGO Movie’ LA Premiere

Brie Larson In Escada - ‘The LEGO Movie’ LA Premiere

Brie Larson joined Elizabeth Banks and Alison Brie on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘The LEGO Movie’ held at Regency Village Theatre on Saturday (February 1) in Westwood, California.

The last time we saw the actress on the red carpet at the Critics’ Choice Awards she wore an Escada Resort 2014 gown which totally overwhelmed her.

Here she opts for Escada again, and while her white-and-blue patterned lightly pleated dress with a sheer yoke is much improved, she lets herself down with the styling.

Sadly the shoes are horrendous with this dress. The dress says summer and the shoes say fall. Such a shame the shoes let her down so badly.

Helen Mirren In Escada – 2014 SAG Awards

Helen Mirren In Escada - 2014 SAG Awards

Dame Helen Mirren showed up women half her age at the 2014 SAG Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Saturday (January 18) in Los Angeles.

The ‘Phil Spector’ actress, who won for Outstanding Actress in a film or miniseries, wore an exquisite Escada Pre-Fall 2014 gown with a Jimmy Choo clutch, Dolce and Gabbana shoes and Neil Lane jewelry.

Helen has mastered the art of looking both seductive and age appropriate, which is no small feat at the age of 68. The incredibly unique beading and embroidery is of course the highlight of the gown but the wide sash, voluminous skirt and illusion sleeves all contribute to the perfection.

Slicked back hair, which has been trending this season, shows off Helen’s black and gold chandelier earrings and a red lip pulls the whole thing together.

Dame Helen looked positively regal. Another best-dressed nominee.

Brie Larson In Escada – 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Brie Larson In Escada - 2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Brie Larson attended the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica, California.

The actress, who is nominated in the Best Actress category for ‘Short Term 12,’ wore a navy-and-white floral embroidered sleeveless gown from Escada’s Resort 2014 collection.

I can’t say I’m crazy about the dress, which appears to have totally overwhelmed her frame, but I could’ve been swayed had the accessories been more interesting.

Sophia Bush In Escada – 3rd Annual Pencils of Promise Gala Honoring Malala Yousafza

Sophia Bush In Escada -  3rd Annual Pencils of Promise Gala

Sophia Bush was the picture of perfection while taking to the red carpet for the third annual Pencils of Promise gala at Guastavino’s in New York City yesterday evening.

I simple adore her Escada Pre-Fall 2013 long sleeve gown embroidered with grey beading to create a metallic mesh effect, which was accented with a pewter waistband.

She styled her look with a gold Chanel clutch.

As always when it comes to Sophia I love the overall presentation – which includes a slicked-back bun and berry lips.

Viola Davis In Escada - 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Viola Davis was also among the star-studded guest list at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards, hosted on Monday night at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.

Similar to Lupita Nyong’o’s sunny entrance, Viola also opted for a shot of  colour, albeit a slightly more muted one.

Her marigold-yellow Escada frock was accented with figure-flattering, black geometric embellishment at the sides.

She styled the dress with nondescript black, ankle-strap sandals and more interesting Marina B jewels, including Art Deco-inspired pendant earrings, with a radiant fuchsia lip lacquer as the final flourish.

2013 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Emmys 1

Here is a roundup of the rest of the attendees at the 2013 Emmy Awards.

Padma Lakshmi:
The TV host wore a Kaufmanfranco pale-blue dress with cut-out details accented with sheer illusion panels. She styled her elegant dress with a Robert Lee Morris cuff, gold Jimmy Choo ‘Vinyl’ sandals and spectacular gold earrings. The dress is pretty, but I feel like I have seen this style several times before. I’m more enamoured of her beauty and her jewels on this occasion.

Katie Aselton: The actress wore a beautiful navy-blue Azzaro V-neck gown with delicate gold embellishments, which she styled with Brian Atwood heels, Jacob & Co. jewels and a white Amanda Pearl clutch. As always, perfect from head to toe.

Carla Gugino: The actress turned up the heat wearing a red Georges Chakra gown with a risqué sheer polka-dot panel. The look was styled with Norman Silverman and Demarco jewels, a silver Judith Leiber clutch and Brian Atwood heels.
