Kerry Washington In Giles, Stella McCartney & Preen – ‘Scandal’ New York Promo Tour

Kerry Washington In Giles, Stella McCartney & Preen - 'Scandal' New York Promo Tour

With Season 4 of ‘Scandal’ airing on ABC on Thursday, Kerry Washington continued her promotional efforts by making a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’, ‘Live With Kelly & Michael’ and ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’.

Good Morning America: Opting for Giles again, the yellow hue has me longing for the early days of spring. Styled with her self-designed Allstate Foundation purple purse, she once again complemented the purse with plum Casadei pumps.

Live With Kelly & Michael: Pretty in pink on this occasion, she wore a Stella McCartney sleeveless dress featuring a modest cut-out detail. You’d be forgiven if you thought this was Cushnie et Ochs, as this dress very much fits their M.O. SJP Collection blue pumps provide a striking contrast, with Jennifer Meyer jewels rounding out her look.

The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon: This was my favourite of the bunch. I adore this playful dotted Preen ‘Liberty’ Resort 2015 dress in patriotic red, white and blue featuring a contrasting back and sleeves and a red waistband. I love how fresh this look feels, especially when given a kick with those gorgeous flame-red Louboutins. A white Thalé Blanc clutch rounded out her look.

Kerry Washington In Prabal Gurung & Giles – Good Morning America & The Limited ‘Scandal’ Collection Launch Event

Kerry Washington In Prabal Gurung & Giles - Good Morning America & The Limited 'Scandal' Collection Launch Event

Kerry Washington was on double duty yesterday (September 23). Not only was she promoting the new season of her hit TV show ‘Scandal’, but she was also promoting the limited edition ‘Scandal’-inspired clothing collection.

‘Good Morning America': Kerry’s morning started bright and early with a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’, where she enlivened the audience with this contemporary offering from Prabal Gurung’s Resort 2015 collection. Used to much simpler styles, this racer front and peplum top paired with a dual-colour circle skirt with a leather flounce is a refreshing break from the norm. I love the silhouette and the simple styling, and despite the fact that there are so many elements to this look, she’s not overwhelmed by it.

The Limited ‘Scandal’ Collection Launch Event: Later that same evening Kerry was working her second peplum look of the day, this time wearing one of her favourite designers, Giles Deacon. I love the strong graphic impact this tie-dye denim-bustier Resort 2015 frock has to offer, but sadly I’m not too enamoured by the navy velvet Roger Vivier ‘Papillon’ bow-accented sandals or the Roger Vivier ‘Pilgrim Carre Orthodoxe’ embellished clutch. Both feel too prissy for this edgy look. A fishtail braid and a subtle selection of jewels completed her look.

Gwendoline Christie In Giles & Peter Pilotto – Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration

Gwendoline Christie In Giles & Peter Pilotto -  Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly's Annual Comic-Con Celebration
Gwendoline Christie was also in attendance at Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego, California, where she made two completely different style statements over the weekend.

‘Game of Thrones’ Panel: At Friday’s event at the San Diego Convention Center, the British actress again wore one of her favourite designers, Giles Deacon, flaunting a Giles Resort 2015 A-line frock—sans the lookbook peplum. The indigo tie-dyed print followed suit with the whimsical punchiness of the collection, but Gwendoline made the dress all her own via glam, old-Hollywood styling. With her platinum-blonde retro waves, coral-red lip and metallic gold sandals, she was nothing short of a mod Marilyn Monroe.

Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: For Saturday’s party at the Hard Rock Hotel, she switched out of her Marilyn-esque mood, instead cladding her statuesque frame in a Peter Pilotto Fall 2014 gem-embellished top and skirt, which was made appropriate for summer with the removal of the sleeves. She and Vera Farmiga were evidently drinking from the same Pilotto Kool-Aid, yet this pink hue wouldn’t be my first choice for Gwendoline.

Gwendoline Christie In Giles – 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Gwendoline Christie In Giles - 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Gwendoline Christie attended the 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards on Monday (June 16) in New York City.

The British actress wore a dress from one of her favourite designers: Giles Deacon.

This sneak peek at the designers upcoming Spring 2015 collection features a flamingo print etched by Illustrator Donald Robertson, who accompanied the actress to this event.

This work of art was truly celebrated when Donald held aloft her train to reveal more of the print.

Apart from the feel-good factor, the summery colour and the vibrant print, I love that at 6ft 3in (1.91m) tall Gwendoline still wore white Louboutin heels.

If she’s anything like me she will often be asked, “Why do you wear heels?” to which I always reply, “Why not?”

A red satin clutch rounded out this gorgeous look.

Abbey Clancy In Giles – London Collections: Jimmy Choo Men Spring 2015 Show

Abbey Clancy In Giles - London Collections Jimmy Choo Men Spring 2015 Show

Abbey Clancy attended the Jimmy Choo show during the London Collections: Men SS15 on Monday (June 16) in London, England.

The British model and TV personality wore a lip appliqué dress from her designer BFF who created her wedding dress, Giles Deacon.

Her fitted, high-neck purple lip appliqué dress is somewhat ironic considering the press are always talking about her extended pout.

Abbey styled her sheer dress with Jimmy Choo white ‘Maiden’ pumps and a Jimmy Choo ‘Ice Cube’ clutch.

Variety Power Of Women New York Luncheon

Variety Power Of Women New York Luncheon

A host of lovely ladies took to the red carpet for the Variety Power Of Women: New York luncheon held at Cipriani 42nd Street today (April 25) in New York City.

Sarah Jessica Parker: The actress wore a dress from her favourite designer: Giles, donning a strapless pink, mauve and black bat-print frock styled with an Alice+ Olivia embroidered Victorian top and SJP ‘Fawn’ pumps.

Iman: Looking as beautiful and statuesque as ever, the supermodel donned a Michael Kors pleated nutmeg dress from the Spring 2014 collection accented with a snakeskin belt. The dress was styled with a Michael Kors ‘Miranda’ clutch in a matching hue and chocolate open-toe sandals. You may remember that Heidi Klum wore this same dress earlier this year.

Claire Danes: Looking pretty in hot-pink Claire wore an Oscar de la Renta dress with a bubble hem styled with nude sandals.

Leslie Mann In Giles – ‘The Other Woman’ London Premiere

Leslie Mann In Giles - 'The Other Woman' London PremiereLeslie Mann joined Kate Upton at the premiere of ‘The Other Woman,’ hosted tonight (April 2) at the Curzon Mayfair in London, England.

Whereas Kate was the epitome of old Hollywood elegance, Leslie painted her glam look with a bit of artsy mod flair, donning a Giles Fall 2014 frock.

The white design was punched through with an exploded branch-like pattern and complemented by a bib neckline of sparkling black paillettes.

A knotted low updo and a bright coral-orange lip completed this red-carpet outing, which was far more chicly impactful than her Amsterdam look. Would you agree?
