Ashley Greene In Giambattista Valli – amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

Ashley Greene In Giambattista Valli - amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

Ashley Greene lit up the red carpet while attending the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2013 Fashion Week at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Wednesday evening.

The ‘Twilight’ actress, who we will no doubt see front row at the Donna Karan Fall 2013 show, wore a gorgeous Giambattista Valli Resort 2013 look.

Her white silk-cady halter gown with a keyhole detail was styled with a gold leaf waistband.

I love her Lorraine? Schwartz ?yellow?gold ?and ?diamond ?flower? earrings, which complement the waistband, and the shimmering silver eyeliner, which makes her grey eyes pop.

While some of you think that Ashley can play it safe on the red carpet, I find this graceful look, which she styled with glossy tresses and a pink lip colour, very charming and becoming of a young actress who doesn’t want to take the ‘look how hot I look in a short floral sheer dress’ approach to red carpet dressing.

Anne Hathaway In Giambattisa Valli Couture – 2013 SAG Awards

Anne Hathaway In Giambattisa Valli Couture - 2013 SAG Awards

We all expected big things from Anne Hathaway, and she didn’t let me down at the 2013 SAG Awards, held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

Snatching this Giambattisa Valli Spring 2013 Couture gown right off the runway, the ‘Les Miserables’ actress looked radiant wearing the black tulle dress with an embroidered corset.

It’s pretty without being too girlie, and sophisticated and polished without being mature. I think she found the perfect balance.

Adding yet more bling to her look, Anne styled her couture gown with Kwiat jewels and embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Kalpa’ sandals, plus a black Edie Parker clutch.

Still keeping things fresh and new with her cropped hairdo, Anne added the only pop of colour via her coral lippie.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Michelle Obama In Jason Wu & Sarah Jessica Parker In Giambattista Valli Couture & Mary Katrantzou

BDOTW FLOTUS & SJP

FLOTUS was your best dressed this week wearing Jason Wu and I can’t fault your choice as Mihcelle Obama looked stunning at the inaugural ball.

My choice was Sarah Jessica Parker.

As a lover of prints she managed to expertly blend a variety of prints courtesy of Giambattista Valli Couture, Mary Katrantzou and Jean-Michel Cazabat and make them work together.

This is a feat we thought only Solange Knowles could master.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Giambattista Valli Couture & Mary Katrantzou – Out In New York City

Sarah-Jessica-Parker-In-Giambattista-Valli-Couture-Mary-Katrantzou Out In New York

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted leaving her home in New York City yesterday with her son and husband Matthew Broderick.

I’m not sure where she was going, but she looked sensational wearing two of my favourite designers: Mary Katrantzou and Giambattista Valli.

Her dress is from Mary Katrantzou’s Spring 2013 collection, featuring the signature currency print which made up half of this collection.

Most people would pair this colourful printed dress, with a fitted bodice and flared skirt, with a solid coloured coat; thankfully SJP isn’t most people.

She added an equally colourful Giambattista Valli Fall 2012 Couture coat to her look.

The woodland-inspired floral jacquard drop-waist coat is both elegant and refined, managing to stand out on its own and complement the Mary Katrantzou dress underneath.

A champagne-coloured chain-accented bag embellished with aqua stones, and yellow-and-green snake-print Jean-Michel Cazabat ‘Emma’ pumps completed her look.

I don’t know about you but I am drooling over this look. On paper it sounds too much, but this is a visual delight and worthy of a BDOTW nomination.

Salma Hayek In Giambattista Valli – Front Row @ Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture

Salma Hayek In Giambattista Valli - Front Row @ Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 CoutureActress Salma Hayek looked on from a front-row perch at Giambattista Valli’s Spring 2013 Couture presentation at the gilded Italian Embassy in Paris, where the designer’s sculptural and slightly whimsical flurry of fashions were floated out on Monday.

For the runway show, Salma stunned in a little red dress from the Giambattista Valli Fall 2012 collection. The frock classically accented her enviable curves with its plunging V-neck bodice, a grosgrain ribbon cinched at the waist, and the fuller circle skirt of wool with silk godets.

Stacked bangles and a metallic bronze Alexander McQueen clutch added a cool edge, while black boots completed the look—and proved a necessary accoutrement for Paris’s snowfall.

Her jet-black hair, styled in loose waves, along with a nude lip complemented this sophisticated moment.

Rosamund Pike In Giambattista Valli – ‘Jack Reacher’ Fan Screening

Rosamund Pike In Giambattista Valli - 'Jack Reacher' Fan Screening

Sporting her fourth look in two days, Rosamund Pike attended the ‘Jack Reacher’ Fan Screening at Busan Cinema Center in South Korea this evening.

I was going to say I’m developing a girl crush on the British actress but I would be lying because the crush is fully developed.

Firstly, because I’m loving her style, which is so varied yet stays true to her girlie nature, and secondly because she selected one of my favourite looks from the Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 collection.

This ultra-feminine ivory floral-print dress has a sheer floral skirt which is sexy, yet playful.

After giving us a wide variety of shoe options, some celebs put the same few on rotation when they travel; she donned a pair of leg-lengthening nude Nicholas Kirkwood pumps.

It has been the week of Kerry Washington, Jessica Chastain and Rosamund Pike. I don’t want this week to end.
