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.

Priyanka Chopra In Giorgio Armani – Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa

Priyanka Chopra In Giorgio Armani - Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa

Priyanka Chopra made a guest appearance on a popular television show in Mumbai called ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ yesterday evening (August 19) to promote her new movie, ‘Mary Kom’, which is about a boxer who has won the world championship several times against all odds.

Undeterred by the somewhat bitter taste Will Arnett left in your mouth by wearing a white suit on the red carpet, the Bollywood actress donned a crisp white Giorgio Armani suit.

J’adore the sleekness of the look, the clean lines and the rather interesting black scoop top emblazoned with the phrase “you just can’t beat a person who won’t give up”, no doubt in reference to her movie.

Sunshine-yellow Jimmy Choo ‘Tebori’ sandals and Suhani Pittie jewels accessorized her look, with a flaming-red lip, slicked-back hair and smouldering eyes rounding out her look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Rachel McAdams In Zuhair Murad Couture, Zoe Saldana In Valentino, Chris Hemsworth In Dolce & Gabbana & Chadwick Boseman In Giorgio Armani

BDOTW Women 28 July

Rachel McAdams was your runaway winner this week for her gorgeous Zuhair Murad Couture cocktail dress worn to the ‘A Most Wanted Man’ premiere.

You not only loved how beautiful she looked, but also the change in direction.

My favourite was Zoe Saldana. After a so-so showing at Cannes, this look sees her back to her best.

The Valentino gown she wore to the London ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ premiere was soft, pretty and feminine, which was also a change in pace from the directional look she donned to the LA premiere.

When it came to the guys, Chris Hemsworth was your clear winner, looking sharp in his Dolce & Gabbana outfit. I was seduced by the cool-blue Armani suit worn by ‘Get On Up’ actor Chadwick Boseman. Styling and fit were very much on point.
