Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture - 2014 Met Gala

Lena Dunham was at the 2014 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5).

The ‘Girls’ actress, who is always a bit of a red-carpet wild card, wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture high-low design that loosely paid homage to the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ exhibit with its abbreviated ball-skirt silhouette.

Even though it was strapless and a mullet dress, she wore it quite well.

The black frock, which was festooned with blue and pink floral embroidery, was the main attraction here, as she did little to clutter the effect. Minimal jewels, barely-there makeup and plain black pumps all worked in her favour on this occasion.

For someone I place more often in the ‘miss’ category, this look I actually found to be more of a ‘hit’. Would you agree?

Lupita Nyong’o In Giambattista Valli – 2014 Annual Garden Brunch

Lupita Nyong'o In Giambattista Valli - 2014 Annual Garden Brunch

Lupita Nyong’o started her day attending the 2014 Annual Garden Brunch held at the Beall-Washington House on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.

The Oscar-winning actress wore a red and white Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 strapless silk floral-print dress with a nipped in waist and flared skirt.

Her ladies-who-brunch look was styled with champagne coloured Christian Louboutin pumps, a Judith Leiber clutch, and Fred Leighton jewelry.

This is such a dainty, feminine event-appropriate look. I’m glad it wasn’t overplayed with too much fuss.

Rebecca Lim In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2014 Star Awards

Rebecca Lim In Giambattista Valli Couture - 2014 Star Awards

Rebecca Lim attended the 2014 Star Awards in Singapore, where she picked up two awards including Best Supporting Actress.

The actress wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture strapless gown with a stunning electric-blue bodice and a pleated peplum mermaid skirt accented with a black waistband.

There is a lot going on, and she carried it well; however, I would’ve stripped back this look further than the understated hairstyle and opted to go sans jewels.

Kate Bosworth In Giambattista Valli Couture - Moving Image's 28th Annual Salute Honouring Kevin Spacey

Kate Bosworth attended the Museum of the Moving Image’s 28th Annual Salute honouring her ’21’ co-star Kevin Spacey on Wednesday (April 9) in New York City.

Still working a red hairdo, the former blonde donned a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture light-pink satin dress featuring a jacquard front and satin back with a train enriched with clusters of silver embellishments all over.

Aside from the embellishments, the other noticeable thing about this look is the contrast pink bow accent going across the bodice.

Her ultra-feminine look, which oozes Parisian sensuality, was styled with rose-gold Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps and a sweeping updo.

Lupita Nyong'o In Giambattista Valli - Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

After having a much deserved break following awards season, Lupita Nyong’o was back on the red carpet for the Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars party on Tuesday (April 8) in West Hollywood, California joining Kate Mara.

Sporting yet another new ‘do, the ’12 Years a Slave’ actress donned a Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture dress fine-tuned with a fit-and-flare silhouette and blue floral embroidery.

I love how the cut gives her a girlier flair and pretty poise.

This is also aided by her magenta lip colour, Louboutin pumps and Graziela Gems floral jewels.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Jennifer Connelly In Giambattista Valli Couture & Emma Watson In J. Mendel

Best Dressed Of The Week - Jennifer Connelly In Giambattista Valli Couture & Emma Watson In J Mendel

There was only 1% separating Jennifer Connelly in Giambattista Valli Couture and Emma Watson in J. Mendel this week, both of whom coincidentally attended the Madrid premiere of ‘Noah’.

These were also my top two of the week. While your eventual winner was Jennifer Connelly, Emma’s uber-cool, sharp and sexy J. Mendel ensemble won me over.

For the men, you picked Theo James’ navy checked Gucci suit, while Miles Teller’s teal-green Prada suit and grey tie combo stood out for me.
