Julianne Hough In Georges Hobeika Couture – ‘Safe Haven’ New York Premiere

Julianne Hough In Georges Hobeika Couture - 'Safe Haven' New York Premiere

The one thing we can give Julianne Hough credit for is that her style is not predictable; she’s always willing to try something new, both hair- and style-wise.

That was most definitely the case when she attended the New York premiere of her latest movie, ‘Safe Haven’, held at the Landmark Sunshine Cinemas yesterday evening, wearing a Georges Hobeika Spring 2013 pants ensemble.

Her pretty organza and Moroccan-crepe ensemble features the designer’s signature floral motif and Swarovski crystals.

I really want to like this simply because Julianne tried something new, but I think I would’ve preferred this look had the top stopped at the waist.

The metallic pumps were a perfect addition to her unique look.

Is this working for you?

Jayma Mays In Georges Hobeika Couture – 2013 SAG Awards

Jayma Mayes In Georges Hobeika Couture - 2013 SAG Awards‘Glee’ girl Jayma Mays left the halls of her high-school-based television show far behind at the 2013 SAG Awards red carpet, held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California tonight.

The actress must have been inspired by the enchanted, feminine rumway of Georges Hobeika during Paris Couture Fashion Week, as she selected this alabaster number directly from the recently debuted Spring 2013 Couture collection.

I liked this gown on the runway, with its smattering of glinting embellishment and its lightly flared fishtail hem.

But I’m not loving how it falls on Jayma’s figure. Some of the line of the dress is lost in translation and veers on the boxy side. Yet the artistry of the glittering design cannot be denied.

Jimmy Choo ‘Raven’ sandals and silver jewels accessorized her look.

A-plus or just a passing grade?

Mena Suvari In Georges Hobeika Couture – Jamie Kennedy’s New Year’s Eve Party

Mena Suvari In Georges Hobeika Couture - Jamie Kennedy's New Year's Eve Party

Mena Suvari attended the ‘First Night 2013′ New Year’s Eve party hosted by Jamie Kennedy at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Monday night in Hollywood, California.

The ‘American Pie’ actress wore a Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture frock.

While the colour is very festive, I have to say I’m not too fond of the high neckline on this raspberry cocktail dress with a full chiffon skirt and open back.

I would’ve been tempted to fold that neckpiece under the top to give it a bateau neckline or she should’ve worn her hair up like the runway model.

Black accessories, including a clutch and ankle-strap Monika Chiang pumps, plus wavy tresses falling down her back completed her look.

Who Wore Georges Hobeika Couture Better…Brittany Snow or Yao Chen

Brittany Snow wore this gorgeous periwinkle-blue Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture dress to the ‘Pitch Perfect’ LA premiere back in September.

The enticing colour of her Swarovski-beaded and organza-and-velvet floral appliquéd dress made her baby-blue eyes pop. The key to pulling off this look was effortless styling, which the actress mastered.

Sadly the same can’t be said for Yao Chen.

The actress wore the same dress a month later to the L’Officiel 2012 China Elegance Awards in Beijing, China and sucked all the elegance out of the frock with her heavy-handed styling of the look.

Even the blue nails were a step too far, but she also added a nude Bulgari clutch and cobalt-blue Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps.

Brittany wins by a country mile.

Olivia Culpo In Georges Hobeika Couture – 2012 Miss Universe Pageant

Miss USA, Olivia Culpo, was crowned Miss Universe at the annual event held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas last night.

Gone are the days when the contestants would wear off-the-rack; they are now wearing couture.

Olivia received her crown wearing a Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture gown.

Her raspberry velvet and muslin gown is beautiful, but I wish she had opted to modify the deep plunge. After all, it was Miss Universe, not Miss Golden Globes.

Xingtong Yao In Georges Hobeika Couture – 55th Asia-Pacific Film Festival

Xingtong Yao was back on the red carpet this weekend attending the 55th Asia-Pacific Film Festival held at the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel in Macau.

Giving us a slight smile on this occasion, the stunning Asian actress wore another gown by a Lebanese designer, this time from Georges Hobeika’s Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Her raspberry gown with a daring keyhole opening was decorated with Swarovski crystals, pearls and velvet flowers, plus a velvet waistband which nips in the waist.

I love the unique gathered details on the skirt which fall in an asymmetrical line, allowing for the gown to move with a graceful elegance.

Pretty nails, a side-swept ponytail and diamond-encrusted earrings completed this look.

Georges Hobeika appears to be huge in Asia at the moment, with so many actresses wearing his designs on the red carpet.

Chen Shu In Georges Hobeika Couture – Bulgari Grand Opening

Chen Shu attended the Bulgari Grand Opening in Wuhan, China last week looking as elegant as ever.

The Chinese actress wore a Georges Hobeika Spring 2012 Couture gown.

I was delighted to see a piece from this collection on the red carpet as it was very much under-utilized by celebrities.

Her buttercup-yellow gown, with fold details on the bodice and a pleated chiffon skirt, was styled (some might say over-styled, but consider the event) with Bulgari jewels and a gold clutch.

Flawless makeup and a simple updo completed her modern princess look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Joseph Gordon-Levitt In Gucci, Yao Chen In Georges Hobeika Couture & Peter Facinelli In Tommy Hilfiger

Even with her elf ears, we were swept away by Yao Chen’s Georges Hobeika Couture gown.

Some of you were put off by the fact that she chose such an elaborate gown for a daytime premiere, but the rest of us – who crave princess moments on the red carpet – instantly fell in love with her periwinkle-blue strapless gown.

When it came to the guys, our picks differed.

You opted for the handsome Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Gucci, while I was floored by how handsome Peter Facinelli looked in his Tommy Hilfiger grey suit.

Yao Chen In Georges Hobeika Couture – ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ World Premiere

Yao Chen joined Cate Blanchett on the red carpet this evening in Wellington, New Zealand for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.

The actress clearly didn’t want to go unnoticed on the red carpet, so she donned a beautiful Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture ball gown.

This stunning look fills the void left by Zhang Ziyi, who used to be our go-to gal for pretty ball gowns.

Yao’s powder-blue tulle strapless ball gown with velvet touches and intricate embroidery details on the skirt gave me chills.

I’m typing covered in goosebumps as you know I live for a princess moment.

A small Kotur clutch, a half-up, half-down hairstyle and Bulgari drop earrings completed her BDOTW-worthy look.

I’m at a loss for words as to how spectacular this gown is.

Take a look at the close up to see Yao is sporting cute Elf ears.
