Eva Mendes In New York & Company & Escada - New York & Company Spring Launch DinnerEva Mendes attended the New York & Company Spring launch dinner, which celebrated her eponymous collection with the brand, at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday (March 18).

Having earlier been spotted at the NY&C pop-up shop at The Beverly Center, the actress changed into a slightly more formal look for the evening event.

Channeling feminine, vintage appeal, she embraced all things lace with her New York & Company ‘Rebecca’ strapless, mauve-coloured dress and Escada Resort 2014 ‘Catrin’ pink car coat.

The same beaded, bold bracelets and Bionda Castana ‘Daphne Bis’ gold floral lace pumps from earlier in the day transitioned seamlessly to this look, as did her sultry bouffant-style updo and sexy-smoky cat eyes.

Statement chandelier earrings rounded out the retro-refined look that showed off the sophisticated side of lace.

Viola Davis In Escada - Oscars 2014

Viola Davis attended the Oscars 2014, hosted today (March 2) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

One of the evening’s presenter, she was wore a striking emerald Escada gown, calling the green hue her ‘go-to colour’ when interviewed on the red carpet.

With an asymmetrical, structured bodice putting a modern spin on the ball-gown silhouette, the actress added sparkle with gemstone cuffs on each wrist and a glittery, cylindrical Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch.

Retro finger waves, a smoky metallic eye and glossy nude lip contributed glamorous effect.

The jewel-toned hue was undeniably the most compelling part of her ensemble, even if the fabric may have been a bit unforgiving if the light wrinkling is any indication.

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.
