Camilla Belle and Nicola Peltz In Gucci – Gucci Beverly Hills Store Opening Party

Camilla Belle and Nicola Peltz In Gucci - Gucci  Beverly Hills Store Opening Party

Camilla Belle and Nicola Peltz attended a cocktail party hosted by Gucci’s Frida Giannini and Patrizio Di Marco to celebrate the new Beverly Hills store on Thursday (October 30) in Beverly Hills, California.

In keeping with Gucci’s longstanding history with Hollywood, a new third floor featuring a wrap-around terrace overlooking Rodeo Drive is now dedicated to red carpet dressing with a special display exhibited a selection of Gucci Première couture gowns worn on the red carpet by Blake Lively, Salma Hayek Pinault, Taylor Swift and Mila Kunis.

Camilla Belle: The long-time friend of the brand continued her impressive week on the red carpet with yet another chic look, this time from Gucci’s Resort 2015 collection. Her sleeveless dress with its bold floral print detailed with pleated panels was styled with a matching blue clutch and nude toecap pumps for an elegant, ladylike impression. You guys have been very vocal about her hair and on this occasion I would agree. She’s better suited to darker tresses.

Nicola Peltz: True to form, it was an LWD for the young actress. Designed with cap sleeves, faux contouring lapels, a nipped in waist and outer pocket which enhanced the shape, this Gucci Fall 2014 tuxedo inspired cocktail dress one of the chicest LWDs I have seen in a while. Golden waves and Gucci burgundy patent leather sandals completed her look.

Jessie J In Gucci – National Federation of UNESCO Associations In Japan Charity Gala

Jessie J In Gucci - National Federation of UNESCO Associations In Japan Charity Gala

Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini hosted a charity gala in Toyko, Japan on Saturday (October 25) in honour of the National Federation of UNESCO Associations in Japan (NFUAJ) with Jessie J giving a special performance.

Red carpet look: Jessie opted for an understated look, wearing a sleek one-of-a-kind Gucci gown accented with a crystal neckline. Following her brown jumpsuit from the MOBO Awards, this was a case of very much improved and proof, if needed, that she does scrub up very well.

Performance: For her performance, the look had a lot more sparkle. Her one-of-a-kind Gucci black shift dress enriched with crystal detailing all over, save for the leather bib, is clearly inspired by Gucci’s Fall 2014 collection. I would’ve loved a fierce pair of heels with this look, however, she opted for comfortable pair of Gucci Mary Jane pumps.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture & Eddie Redmayne In Gucci

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture & Eddie Redmayne In Gucci

If BDOTW was a race this week, Lily Collins lapped the other contestants several times taking 55% of the votes.

It appears that you were just as blown away as I was by her stunning Eli Saab Couture ombre gown, which I’m certain will now appear on many BDOTY lists.

For the fellas, Eddie Redmayne had only a 1% lead over fellow Gucci-clad actor Ryan Reynolds.

I picked Eddie as I preferred the white shirt and pocket square breaking up the look, plus the luxe velvet fabric and impeccable tailoring. I’m sure this may have been a factor in your decision-making process too.

Elle’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration Red Carpet Roundup

Elle’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the attendees from Elle’s 21st annual Women In Hollywood celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (October 20) in Beverly Hills, California.

Renee Zellweger: I honestly didn’t recognise Renee. It’s the hair that threw me: for such a long time the actress has been perfect from the neck down, never paying much attention to her hair; however on this occasion her golden locks were teased into lovely waves. Dressed in a Carolina Herrera LBD with lace sleeves, the look was styled with gold accessories for a festive flourish.

Bella Thorne: The teen star wore a mustard-hued Gucci Fall 2014 dress styled with a mish-mash of accessories including nude peep-toes and a black clutch. I think black sandals would’ve worked better here.

Liberty Ross: The model wore a vintage Versace black dress with a plunging neckline and sexy open back, plus a tan leather panel around the waist which is throwing me off liking this look. Most bizarre addition. Especially when you see it from the back.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear red carpet 21 october

Here is a quick rundown of some of the gentlemen who took to the red carpet yesterday (October 20) evening.

Ryan Reynolds: The actor joined his wife, Blake Lively, on the red carpet for the Angel Ball in New York City. Like Blake, he also wore Gucci, donning a Made to Order peak-lapel two-button Marseille tuxedo with a black evening shirt, navy silk bowtie and black leather lace-up shoes.

Eddie Redmayne: Making it a Gucci double, the British actor joined co-star Felicity Jones on the red carpet for ‘The Theory of Everything’ New York premiere decked out in a dark-blue Gucci Fall 2014 velvet ‘Dylan’ suit. We love the actor for his dabbling in colourful suits, but he looks just as good when he takes a walk on the dark side.

Blake Lively In Gucci – Angel Ball 2014

Blake Lively In Gucci - Angel Ball 2014

Blake Lively attended the Angel Ball 2014 hosted by Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation at Cipriani Wall Street on Monday (October 20) in New York City, which gave us another look at her maternity style.

The actress went from fully covered at the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards Gala, to this figure-hugging pale-yellow gown with a plunging neckline enhanced with silver tubular embroidery from Gucci’s Resort 2015 collection.

While I’m pretty certain there will be plenty of disapproval with regards to the plunge, I’m less enthused about the colour.

Something tells me this would’ve worked better in a darker shade – perhaps a deep forest-green, rich bordeaux or black.

The look was styled with a half-up half-down hairstyle and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
