Kerry Washington In Giambattista Valli – Variety’s Actors on Actors: Emmy Edition

Kerry Washington In Giambattista Valli - Variety's Actors on Actors Emmy Edition
Kerry Washington attended Variety Studio’s Actors on Actors, presented by Autograph Collection Hotels, on Sunday (March 29) in Los Angeles, California.

Once again in fine form, the ‘Scandal’ star was lovely in a Giambattista Valli Pre-Fall 2015 frock that featured the kaleidoscopic, lacy floral motif seen throughout the collection.

Even though the cameras caught her with arms crossed, the stance does nothing to take away from the whimsical chicness of the embroidered bodice and skirt.

Thankfully, she highlighted the pink-coral hue from the dress with her matching lace-look Bionda Castana pumps, rather than opting for the easy way out in a black pair.

The rest of her styling was also spot-on with a beautiful side updo and rich berry-red lip finishing the look.

Olivia Munn In Giambattista Valli – The Hollywood Reporters’ 25 Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood Luncheon

Olivia Munn In Giambattista Valli - The Hollywood Reporters'

Olivia Munn joined Odeya Rush and Amy Adams for The Hollywood Reporters’ 25 Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood Luncheon co-hosted by Jimmy Choo at the Soho House in West Hollywood, California on Wednesday (March 18).

The ‘Ride Along’ star, who posed with her power stylist Micaela Erlanger (who was wearing the same Preen dress we’ve seen on Michelle Monaghan), was beautiful in a printed blue Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 frock accented by a thin belt.

The bright abstract, painterly patterning of the dress kept me from paying too much mind to the sheer underlay at the hem, which could have been mistaken for a slip.

While her Brian Atwood ‘Besame’ pumps are a perfect shade of matching blue, the look would have been better served with a blue sandal—or one in a punchy, contrasting hue for added edge.

Olivia wears vivid colours so well, so I’m glad she opted for this dress and the pop of a bold magenta lip, which was like a breath of fresh air.

Margot Robbie In Giambattista Valli Couture – ‘Focus’ LA Premiere

Margot Robbie In Giambattista Valli Couture - 'Focus' LA Premiere

Margot Robbie attended the world premiere of ‘Focus’ held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Tuesday (February 24) in Hollywood, California.

The actress finally upped the ante on this promo tour wearing a Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture gown, which even though it’s sheer has been considerably lined from the version that took the runway.

I personally love the airiness of this sheer look; another layer and it would’ve lost its allure.

My only issue with this look is the hair. The faux Mohawk, or whatever this style is called, is too punk rock for such an elegant gown.

Marion Cotillard In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Marion Cotillard In Giambattista Valli Couture - 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Marion Cotillard attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Party, hosted at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

The French beauty again opted for a non-Dior look, donning a Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Couture ensemble.

I take no issue with the top that was magnificently encrusted with an array of metallic and multicolour embellishment, nor the artfully constructed, cloud-like folds of the skirt.

I, however, cannot get on board with the black-and-white bow-like appendage that wrapped sportily around her waist. Enough is enough with this look—and that addition was too much.

For those that found no favour in her earlier Oscars outing, I’m not sure this effort will win many more points.

Rosamund Pike In Giambattista Valli – 8th Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Rosamund Pike In Giambattista Valli - 8th Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Rosamund Pike attended the 8th annual Women In Film pre-Oscar cocktail party held at HYDE Sunset: Kitchen + Cocktails on Friday (February 20) in West Hollywood, California.

Finally, praise the lord, hallelujah, a look from the British actress which doesn’t bore me to tears.

I have made no secret of being thoroughly disappointed by her style this awards season, but this Giambattista Valli Pre-Fall 2015 gown brimming with botanical charm and delicate ruffles sees her back to her ‘Jack Reacher’ promo tour best.

Decidedly pretty with a sense of Parisian vivacité, I hope she can keep to this standard on Sunday night.

Rihanna In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2015 Grammy Awards

57th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Rihanna was positively captivating, as she floated down the red carpet of the 2015 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (February 8).

This time out, the provocative songstress shocked and awed in the best way possible in her Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Couture gown complemented by sparkling Chopard jewels.

The mesmerizing design was a delicious, cotton-candy confection with a fantasy of voluminously spun pink tulle.

Just as enchanting as the gown was RiRi’s refreshingly natural beauty look, built on a nude lip and a sleek ballet bun.

I am still basically speechless at this revelation. J’adore.
