Elizabeth Hurley Goes Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Elizabeth Hurley, the face of Estee Lauder’s Breast Cancer Research Foundation, has been supporting the cause by wearing a variety of designer clothes in the charity’s chosen colour: pink.

Last week she kick started the month wearing a pink Issa dress with nude pumps at the launch of the 20th Anniversary of Estee Lauder’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign by lighting the Empire State building in New York City.

On Monday she teamed a dark pink Elie Tahari dress with geometric cut-outs around the neckline with black Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

By Wednesday she was in Paris, attending the ’20 Ans Du Ruban Rose’ event to illuminate the Paris Opera House, wearing a Naeem Khan Spring 2012 dress.

Her fuchsia matte jersey dress with micro bugle beading, a keyhole opening, and an open back was perfectly styled with metallic silver pumps and matching clutch.

Yesterday the actress was back in the UK, where she made a personal appearance at Selfridges in the Trafford Centre, Manchester wearing a shocking-pink dress with a plunging neckline and long sleeves which she styled with nude and black peep-toes.

Finally, that same evening, Liz turned the Selfridges lights pink wearing a Pamella Roland fuschia-and-powder-pink sequin dress with nude pumps.

Who’s That Girl? – Lizzy Caplan

Lizzy Caplan is an American actress best known for her TV roles in the CBS show ‘The Class’ and HBO’s ‘True Blood’ (2008), plus she’s starred in movies such as ‘Mean Girls’ (2004) and ‘Cloverfield’ (2008).

The 30-year-old actress has suddenly come back on our radar with a shorter hairstyle, attending two premieres and a photocall within the last five days.

She started her red-carpet comeback at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre last Thursday at ‘The Campaign’ premiere wearing an on-trend white crop top and a Rachel Zoe A-line ‘Drew’ skirt from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection.

A blue satin Kotur clutch, matching blue nail polish, accessorized her look along with Dolce & Gabbana wedges.

Yesterday she attended the ‘Bachelorette’ photocall during the 65th Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland.

Whilst I applaud the artistic nature of her Lisa Ho tropical-print mini dress, I find her yellow-and-nude BCBG ‘Vera’ studded raffia sandals a bit of an eyesore.

By nightfall she was on the red carpet again, this time for the movie’s premiere, dressed in a signature Issa London dress.

Her emerald-green gathered dress was styled with copper Brian Atwood ‘Amelye’ sandals and a matching clutch.

Crystal Reed In Issa London – 2012 MTV Movie Awards

Crystal Reed attended the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, held in Universal City, California, on Sunday evening.

The ‘Teen Wolf’ star wore an Issa London Fall 2012 dress.

Her gold-and-seafoam-green metallic dress with a flared skirt was styled with jewels by Made Her Think, Starburst, and Le Vian.

As much as I love the dress, I’m not a fan of those Walter Steiger ankle boots. What a way to weigh down and ruin a look.

A wavy updo, dark eye makeup, and a light-pink lip shade provided the finishing touches.

Camila Alves attended the premiere of ‘Killer Joe’ during the 2012 SXSW Music, Film and Interactive Festival at the Paramount Theatre on Saturday in Austin, Texas, with fiancé Matthew McConaughey.

The Brazilian beauty looked stunning wearing a simple Issa dress.

Her goddess-green long-sleeve gown with a keyhole detail was teamed with gold earrings and peep-toe heels.

Long sleek jet-black locks, kohl-rimmed eyes and nude lip colour completed her look.

Perfection personified, as always.

Gabrielle Union In Issa – ‘Good Deeds’ LA Premiere

Gabrielle Union joined co-star Thandie Newton on the red carpet on Tuesday night for the LA premiere of their new movie, ‘Good Deeds’.

The actress wore an Issa silk-jersey gown with a plunging neckline from the Spring 2012 collection.

I love this taupe colour; it makes her skin even more radiant.

Gabrielle accessorized the look with J Handel bracelets, Jimmy Choo heels and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch.

Bright blue nails add an unexpected pop of colour.

Whatever she’s been doing lately it has been working, as Gabrielle has never looked more beautiful.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Issa – Evening National Canada Day Celebrations

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William ended their first full day in Ottawa, Canada on Friday night with an evening of National Canada Day celebrations.

They were treated to music on Parliament Hill. They stayed for just over 30 minutes with eight members of their entourage before heading to the foreign office to watch fireworks.

Catherine wore a dress by her favourite brand, Issa.

The long-sleeved purple Issa jersey dress was accented with the diamond maple leaf brooch she had worn earlier in the day.

For those of you who’ve been waiting for Kate to do something different with her hair you got your wish, as she opted for a swept back chignon for a refreshing change.

She added navy Prada pumps and an Anya Hindmarch clutch to complete her look.

This dress is a beautiful colour on her, yet I find myself bored by the whole look.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Issa – Youth Reception at Rideau Hall

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Youth Reception at Rideau Hall in Ottawa, Canada yesterday with Prince William.

The couple met with over 120 Canadian children who dedicated themselves to bettering the lives of others.

She continued the navy run wearing an Issa bird print dress with black Nine West Cheyanne wedges.

You may recognise this dress, because on her last night as Kate Middleton, the she wore this dress as she entered the Goring Hotel.

The Royal couple will also join millions of Canadians to take part in today’s Canada Day celebrations which mark Canada’s 144th Birthday.

Let’s pray for a colour other than navy.
