Natalia Borges In Fausto Puglisi – 2013 Venice Film Festival

Natalia Borges In Fausto Puglisi - 2013 Venice Film Festival

Natalia Borges, who is the current face of Garnier Fructis America, has so far given us two contrasting looks by the same designer while attending Venice Film Festival.

‘Gravity’ premiere: She was very much the blonde bombshell, wearing a two-tone yellow-and-lavender Fausto Puglisi Fall 2013 dress which she styled with Christian Louboutin spiked accessories and a black leather belt with a ram’s-head gold buckle, the brand’s signature for this collection.

‘Tracks’ premiere: Last night she opted for something more fun and playful, wearing a leather sleeveless top with a half-plaid, half-patterned skater skirt with a black waistband, also from the Fausto Puglisi Fall 2013 collection, which was styled with a ruby-and-silver bibbed Shorouk necklace and sexy red-and-black strappy buckle Casadei for Puglisi sandals.

I like both looks, with my preference leaning heavily towards the first look. The second feels like it should’ve been on the red carpet at the VMAs last weekend, plus the hair is too prissy for such a edgy look.

Coco Rocha In Fausto Puglisi – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Coco Rocha In Fausto Puglisi - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Mega model Coco Rocha worked the runway, ahem red carpet, at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The catwalker could have been a rock star, as she struck a pose in a Fausto Puglisi black leather embossed jacket that was embellished with all sorts of bells and whistles—from studs and shine to zippers galore.

With such an intense piece, she kept the rest of her look minimal with skinny black pants, black pointy pumps and nary an accessory in sight save for a few rings.

Aside from the jacket, the other star of this style show was Coco’s new auburn pixie-punk ’do, which she coaxed into a pompadour style, ratcheting up the rocker vibe even more. A brush of grey smoky shadow completed her steely, sultry stare.

Rock on.

Lily Collins In Fausto Puglisi & Houghton – 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Lily Collins In Fausto Puglisi - 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Lily Collins worked the high-low trend on the red carpet at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday evening.

Like Bella Thorne, Lily wore a palm-print look from the same Fausto Puglisi Resort 2014 collection. Instead of working a full palm-print look, Lily teamed her white-and-coral skirt featuring a flowing train with a black silk short-sleeved top from Houghton’s Resort 2014 collection.

Her decision was the right one to ensure the look wasn’t overly fussy. Which may also be the reason why the bold-lip-colour-loving actress opted for a barely there look, with just striking cat-eyes and a beautiful beehive bouffant accented with a black Alice band.

Black Brian Atwood ‘Zenith’ pumps did nothing to upstage the main focus of the look, which was her skirt; however, I find them to be a tad heavy for the overall look in comparison with the pair worn by the model.

Graziela Gems earrings and EF Collection rings and bangles provided the finishing touches.

I know many of you don’t like high-low (mullet) skirts, so how do you feel about this look?

Bella Thorne In Fausto Puglisi – 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Bella Thorne In  Fausto Puglisi - 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Bella Thorne brought the tropics to the 2013 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday.

The Disney starlet wore a palm-print two-piece ensemble from the Fausto Puglisi Resort 2014 collection featuring a coral long-sleeved top and a blue skater skirt with an asymmetrical hemline.

While the black Candies pumps are a bit blah, they don’t bring down her look, which was also accessorized with a DVF clutch and gold jewels.

I do wish this look was sleeveless, but her look was a lot more original than most at this event so she gets many props for that.

Rinko Kikuchi In Fausto Puglisi – ‘Pacific Rim’ LA Premiere

Rinko Kikuchi In Fausto Puglisi - 'Pacific Rim' LA Premiere

Rinko Kikuchi put her best legs forward on the red carpet at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California last night for the premiere of ‘Pacific Rim’.

The Asian beauty, who doesn’t have ‘play it safe’ as part of her vocabulary, donned a Fausto Puglisi Fall 2013 double-slit high-neck dress accented with gold-and-silver embellished details.

Opting for slicked-back hair, a dark-rouge lip colour and no jewels, I can’t help wishing she had worn boots similar to the ones the model is wearing in the look book picture, which add an edge to this sexy frock.

I have worn these same Louboutins to an office job, so they kinda take the gloss off this look for me.

Fergie In Fausto Puglisi – 2013 NewNowNext Awards

Fergie In Fausto Puglisi - 2013 NewNowNext Awards

Fergie rocked the red carpet at the 2013 NewNowNext Awards at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on Friday.

The pregnant star wore a beaded Fausto Puglisi shift dress with a high/low hemline and carried a Alexander McQueen knuckleduster box clutch.

This was a red carpet repeat for Fergie with her dramatic McQueen clutch–she previously wore it to the ‘Safe Haven’ LA Premiere.

While I’m not always a fan of Fergie’s style, the simple silhouette of this dress is great for pregnancy curves, while the beading and hemline stays true to Fergie’s bold style.

I’m also loving her newly blonder locks and raspberry lips. The star often ops for a more neutral shade of lipstick, and this burst of color looks lovely on her.
