Selena Gomez In Giorgio Armani – 2014 American Music Awards

Selena Gomez In Giorgio Armani  - 2014 American Music Awards

Following her sombre, aging, uninspiring, braless red carpet look, Selena Gomez performed onstage at the 2014 American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (November 23) in Los Angeles, California.

The singer wore a custom Giorgio Armani blush gown with a deep-scoop neckline and delicate layers of soft tulle which will have us all saying, “This is much more like it” and “Why didn’t you make this your red carpet look?”

Ethereal and enchanting, the look was styled with a simple half-up, half-down hairstyle with the makeup soft and in neutral hues to complement her gown.

For the first time in a long while, this is a Selena Gomez look I can fully get on board with.

‘Horrible Bosses 2′ LA Premiere Menswear Roundup

'Horrible Bosses 2' LA Premiere Menswear Roundup

Jennifer Aniston was joined by a host of her male co-stars for the ‘Horrible Bosses 2′ LA premiere held at TCL Chinese Theatre on Thursday (November 20) in Hollywood, California.

Chris Pine: Be still my beating heart. It has been a while since we last saw the actor on the red carpet. On this occasion he opted for the ultra-suave offerings of Giorgio Armani, wearing a Made to Measure two-button peak-lapel pin-dot-pattern wool and silk blend suit with a classic white shirt and a black neck tie for his red carpet look. No wonder the Italian brand snapped him up to be the face of their Armani Code signature men’s fragrance.

Jason Sudeikis: I would say the actor was well on course for his second BDOTW win in this sleek navy-blue suit. Once again he styled his look with some dapper accessories, in this case a polka-dot green and white tie and matching pocket square. A spot on the Best Dressed Man of 2014 list from this promo tour alone is in the offing.

Charlie Day: Navy-blue was also the colour selected for Charlie’s smart notched-lapel suit.

Ashley Madekwe In Giorgio Armani – 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala

Ashley Madekwe In Giorgio Armani - 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala

Ashley Madekwe attended the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala honouring Tom Ford held at Milk Studios on Wednesday (October 29) in Hollywood, California.

Ever since she was perched in the front row for Emporio Armani’s Spring 2015 show during Milan Fashion Week, I have been waiting for an Armani moment from the stylish actress and here it is.

The metallic shimmering silver strapless gown with an embellished bodice and pleated skirt set the right tone for the glamorous evening.

When it comes to accessories, Ashley’s motto has always been less is more (quite the opposite to Olivia Palermo), so here she simply added diamond stud earrings, with silver peep-toes and flawless makeup proving the finishing touches.

Are you as enamoured by this effortless offering?

Bella Thorne In Vintage Giorgio Armani – 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Bella Thorne In Vintage Giorgio Armani - 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Bella Thorne was also among the PYTs at the 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party with Emporio Armani, hosted on Friday (September 26) in Los Angeles, California.

She paired a vintage Giorgio Armani navy beaded striped top with black wide-leg Emporio Armani cropped trousers.

I wanted to like her mix of retro and contemporary, but ultimately the styling and the fit put me off this look.

The pants translated as semi-clownish and the tube top seemed as if might slip off at some point. As for the bright-blue patent heels and white python, chain-strap clutch, they were jarring accompaniments—nor did her silver necklace and bangles make sense.

Even her glorious, flame-red waves seemed to fall lacklustre in the face of this ensemble, rather than setting it afire.

Jaimie Alexander In Giorgio Armani – HBO’s Emmy Awards Post-Awards Reception

Jaimie Alexander In Giorgio Armani - HBO’s Emmy Awards Post-Awards Reception

Jaimie Alexander attended HBO’s Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Post-Awards Reception held at The Plaza at the Pacific Design Center on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, who’s known for her love of figure-hugging – and, at times, revealing – frocks, this time opted for a very sophisticated look from Giorgio Armani’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

The white silk long-sleeved layered cocktail dress with a plunging opening and a thin black belt closure at the neckline was styled with a selection of jewels from Sethi Couture, Le Vian and M.C.L by Matthew Campbell Laurenza, plus an Emm Kuo ‘Guggenheim’ oyster-shell and black resin and stingray minaudière clutch with blue lapis detail, and black Stuart Weitzman pumps.

2014 Emmy Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Emmy Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

While the constellation of actresses on the scene at the 2014 Emmy Awards had all of us focused on the range of red-carpet gowns and glam, there was plenty more eye candy to be had with the men in the mix at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday night (August 25).

Matthew McConaughey: Not one to ever be a shrinking violet, the ‘True Detective’ actor and nominee suited up in a bold blue Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with contrasting black lapels, paired with Christian Louboutin ‘New Orleans’ flats, and a Bulgari watch and cufflinks. Was it my favourite look of his? Perhaps not. It even drew ‘A Night at the Roxbury’ comparisons among the Twitter-verse. But, with that handsome gaze, he can pull off anything.

Aaron Paul: The ‘Breaking Bad’ Emmy winner couldn’t have accepted his trophy in more classic fashion. He wore top-to-toe Prada in a black kid-mohair tuxedo, with a two-button notch-lapel design and velvet trim on the collar. A white smoking silk shirt, black bowtie and black spazzolato lace-up shoes, plus a Bulgari timepiece, completed the look.

Ty Burrell: Channeling his own blue mood, the ‘Modern Family’ Emmy winner wore a custom Todd Snyder tuxedo that was made especially for his big night. The Italian wool design was a collaborative effort between Ty, his stylist, Ilaria Urbinati, and the designer and boasts a unique shade of blue called ‘dusk,’ which nicely updates the tux from the more standard colourways of black and navy.
