Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – ‘Timeless Portofino’ Gala Event

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - 'Timeless Portofino' Gala Event

Cate Blanchett attended a gala event for ‘Timeless Portofino’ hosted by luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen on Monday (29 September) in Hong Kong.

The Australian actress wore a Givenchy Fall 2014 black chiffon lace blouse with black satin oversized cropped trousers, a look which, much like her Stella McCartney and Christian Dior Couture dresses, falls way below her impeccable standards.

Yes, it’s the top with the revealed bra I despise. What a truly horrible design. This so not the great Cate I know and love.

We’ll have to chalk this up to an off weekend for Cate, but we had at least one great look from this event thanks to her Giambattista Valli Couture ensemble.

Ciara In Givenchy – CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party

Ciara In Givenchy - CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party

Ciara attended the CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

Like Miranda Kerr, Ciara also went the sheer route, wearing a Givenchy floor-length frock with velvet panels.

Unfortunately, despite Ciara’s best efforts, there is nothing sexy or appealing about this look in my eyes. I find this terribly unflattering once again.

If proof were needed, this is irrefutable evidence that her mojo is most definitely M.I.A.

Claire Danes In Givenchy – 2014 Emmy Awards

ClaireDanesInGivenchy2014EmmyAwards

Claire Danes continued a very strong ‘lady in red’ trend tonight  red carpet 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘Homeland’ star wore a red lace Givenchy gown from the Fall 2014 collection with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

This is an amazing gown, from the intricate built-in neck piece to the diamond-shaped cut-outs at the waist, but I have to say I like the black we see on the runway better than the red–simply more dramatic.

But Claire looks lovely and her loose updo, smokey eyes and matte red lip are the perfect complement for the gown.

Zoe Saldana In Givenchy – Audi Celebrates Emmys’ Week 2014

Zoe Saldana In Givenchy - Audi Celebrates Emmys' Week 2014

Zoe Saldana attended the Audi celebration of Emmys Week 2014 held at Cecconi’s Restaurant on Thursday (August 21) in Los Angeles, California.

Decked out in contrasting-coloured animal prints, the actress wore a long-sleeved layered frock tied at the empire waist to showcase her bump.

I think I would’ve liked this look more had it only featured one set of animal print and didn’t feature the orange, black and white portion.

Her orange and red Givenchy sandals would’ve still worked.

Animal magic or tragic?

Iggy Azalea In Givenchy – Mr. Chow

Iggy Azalea In Givenchy - Mr Chow

Iggy Azalea and her boyfriend Nick Young were seen leaving ‘Mr. Chow’ restaurant in Beverly Hills, California on Tuesday (August 20).

The singer, and new host of MTV’s ‘House of Style’, has never been afraid of showcasing her curvaceous figure, which was evident when she donned this Givenchy Pre-Fall 2014 dress. Cut to a fitted silhouette with an ultra-flattering midi skirt, the design has a multi-tribal sequinned print throughout and a luxe silk finish.

I’m instantly drawn to the riot of colour complemented by a red leather Saint Laurent clutch, but pushed back when I get to the beige booties.

A slicked-back bun and pink lippie rounded out her date night look.

Do the shoes ruin this look for you?

Jennifer Hudson In Givenchy & Topshop – The Today Show

Jennifer Hudson In Givenchy & Topshop - The Today Show

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson stopped by ‘The Today Show’ yesterday morning (August 19) to perform her single, “It’s Your World”, crowd favourite “And I Am Telling You” from ‘Dreamgirls’ (the role that earned her an Oscar), plus she debuted a brand new song entitled “Dangerous.”

The singer opted for a more laidback urban street-style look in dark hues, donning a cropped black Givenchy hoodie and a cropped Topshop long-sleeved top with ‘STRONG’ emblazoned on the front, paired with Topshop MOTO distressed jeans and Sergio Rossi ‘Rockstar’ leather booties.

While it’s great to see her working a new look, I can’t say I’m excited about it. I prefer to see her working a more polished look.

I think the mom jeans are really throwing me off this look.

Save this for Rihanna or Rita Ora’s street-style looks.

Jennifer’s new album, JHud, is set for release on September 23.
