Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Being a night owl, it can often take me a while to get up in the morning, so I peruse Getty Images from my iPad to give me inspiration to get up.

You can imagine that I jumped up like my butt was on fire when I saw Cate Blanchett on the red carpet for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards held at The Star in Sydney, Australia this evening.

It has been a while since she graced the red carpet wearing Armani Privé, so I’m ecstatic to see her wearing a look from the Spring 2009 collection, which I have always noted was made for Cate.

Her fiery red Asian-inspired bold-shoulder gown, covered in shimmering red square lacquer sequins with a black trim, was styled with some pretty uninspiring footwear.

Considering this look slams every look from the SAG Awards, she gets a free pass.

Instead of the black tasselled detail at the waist, Cate opted for black drop earrings to spice up her hawt look.

Flawless makeup, which gave her a rosy glow, and a bun with side-swept bangs provided the finishing touches.

Needless to say, even with those shoes, this look will be added to my BDOTY list.

2013 Golden Globe Awards Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

Golden Globes Men 1The girls have been feted for their fashionable entrances and exits at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. But there were plenty of handsome guys on the red carpet, too. That said, most of the men played it safe, taking a rather traditional approach with tuxes, all tied up with a bow (tie).

Ben Affleck: Ben was definitely the evening’s Golden boy, as he snagged the Best Director and Best Picture win for ‘Argo’—and he dressed for his double victory. His midnight blue peak lapel tuxedo from Gucci was a handsome three-piece affair, especially with the matching satin bow tie. The blue spin on the traditional tux won me over. Even his perfectly groomed facial hair wasn’t bothersome; it only added a sense of refined depth to the look.

Bradley Cooper: The Best Actor nominee for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ went green for the red carpet with his well-tailored, black Tom Ford two-piece tux, a part of the sustainable Green Carpet Challenge. A pert bow tie topped off the dapper look.

Robert Pattinson:  This ‘Twilight’ heartthrob is all grown up. The British actor impressed with his slim Gucci black peak lapel ‘Signoria’ tuxedo with white dress shirt and black satin tie, matched to black leather lace-ups. It was the picture of formality, and Robert even exchanged his standard scruffiness for a clean-shaven look for the occasion.

Jodie Foster In Giorgio Armani – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Jodie Foster In Giorgio Armani - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Jodie Foster kicked off her awards season in high style by hitting the 2013 Golden Globes Awards red carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Sunday.

The legendary actress dazzled in a custom Giorgio Armani gown and a sleek Anna Wintour-style bob.

Jodie emanated a glow of timeless beauty and modern panache in her deep blue gown.

The form-fitting look shimmered with subtle detailing, and amped up the glamour with some very fashion-forward straps.

The gown was a perfect choice for Jodie, as it gave her a look that was exciting and chic, without going over the top, or veering into the category of age-inappropriate.

I love this look on Jodie – it’s a design worthy of her long, admirable career and exquisite sense of taste and style.

Olivia Munn In Giorgio Armani – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Olivia Munn In Girogio Armani – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Olivia Munn attended the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, held in the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Sunday night.

The actress looked gorgeous in a strapless Giorgio Armani Spring 2013 dress.

This particular navy dress with a turquoise encrusted bodice has been on my red carpet wish list for many months, so I’m thrilled to see it appear tonight.

I could, however, have done without Olivia’s Chopard necklace, which seems very out of place against the embellished dress.

A silver Armani clutch and Armani heels complete the look.

Shay Mitchell In Giorgio Armani – 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Shay Mitchell In Giorgio Armani - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

‘Pretty Little Liars’ starlet Shay Mitchell definitely worked her PYT ways last night at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California.

She wore Giorgio Armani Fall 2012 strapless coral confection that was party-ready what with its embellished overlay of confetti beading.

Black peep-toe pumps could have been more inspired, but her cocktail frock, especially the colour, was worthy of top billing.

Shay’s black nail lacquer added edge to her ensemble, while her soft, slightly unkempt updo was romantic—and certainly very pretty.

Who Wore Giorgio Armani Better…Anna Dello Russo or Fan Bingbing?

Who Wore Armani Better Anna Dello Russo or Fan Bingbing

Anna Dello Russo was the first to wear this Giorgio Armani black Fall 2012 sequin dress when she took her front row seat at the Saint Laurent Spring 2013 show during Paris Fashion Week back in October.

The editor-at-large for Vogue Nippon styled her look with an armful of bracelets, cap-toe pumps, a gold clutch and drop earrings.

A relatively demure look by her standards.

Fan Bingbing wore the same look last month while attending the Bazaar Men’s Style Awards held in Beijing, China.

She opted to style her look with the same runway hat, platform heels and a red Louis Vuitton bag.

After being on the fence when it came to Bingbing’s look, seeing the look without the hat has swayed me to appreciate that added quirk. It really adds lift to the look so the Asian beauty wins for me.
