Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham – 2014 Wildlife Photography of the Year Awards

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham - 2014 Wildlife Photography of the Year Awards

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the 2014 Wildlife Photography of the Year Awards held at the Natural History Museum, of which she is a patron, on Tuesday (October 21) in London, England.

She showed off her tiny bump in a bespoke pale jade crepe full-length Jenny Packham gown with a draped design that hugged her growing mid-section featuring a mid-length underskirt, draped bodice and three-quarter-length sleeves.

The look for once feels quite modern, and for once I actually love the accessories. Thank God she didn’t opt for those L.K. Bennett nude pumps; instead she selected cream L.K. Bennett ‘Agata’ sandals, with an Alexander McQueen clutch with a bejewelled accent replacing the brand’s signature skull clasp.

While I strongly believe she’s had much more exciting Jenny Packham moments (the BOA Olympic Concert’ and ARK 10th Anniversary Gala Dinner spring to mind), this is her best evening look in a long while, plus I’m thankful she didn’t repeat that thrice-worn Temperley London gown.

Elle Fanning In Jenny Packham & Creatures of the Wind – ‘Young Ones’ New York Promo Tour

Elle Fanning - 'Young Ones' New York Promo Tour

It was a very busy day for young Elle Fanning who sported three looks in one day while promoting her latest movie, ‘Young Ones’.

‘Letterman’ arrival: Elle arrived for her guest appearance on ‘Letterman’ wearing an uncompromisingly feminine knee-length nude Jenny Packham Resort 2015 dress with delicate gold embellishments beautifully accented with a black bow and waistband.

‘Letterman': For Elle’s second look, the mood changed from sweet to more mature. I love how her dress has been flawlessly crafted, with the gathering at the front creating soft volume through the skirt punctuated by beautiful cascading floral embroidery. Some might deem this age-inappropriate, but I think she rocks the look with elegance and maturity – plus, those fuchsia satin pumps are making me go weak at the knees.

‘Young Ones’ New York Premiere: Elle’s final look of the day consisted of yet another bold-hued shoe, but methinks that’s not the first place many will look. I think this Creatures of the Wind Spring 2014 featuring a colourful bralet is perfectly balanced with a high-waisted black skirt. Somehow, once again, I don’t think the majority will agree.

Here we have one predictable look and two that are slightly out of the box for Elle. It has been said that you like stars like SJP and Cate Blanchett for taking risks with fashion, so are you going to be embracing these two new looks from Elle?

Zhang Ziyi In Jenny Packham – Jinji Hundred Flowers Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi In Jenny Packham - Jinji Hundred Flowers Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi attended the Jinji Hundred Flowers Film Festival in China on Saturday (September 27), where she picked up the Best Actress Award.

Perhaps knowing she was a dead-cert for the award, she selected a navy Jenny Packham Fall 2014 dress trimmed with sparkling gold detailing to complement her golden award.

The elegant streamline look – which showcases a bit more skin than we are used to seeing from Ziyi via the cut outs – is unstated glamour at its finest.

Rose Byrne In Jenny Packham – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Rose Byrne In Jenny Packham - The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Rose Byrne paid a visit to the Rockefeller Center in New York City yesterday evening (September 18) to make a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to talk about her Broadway debut in ‘You Can’t Take It With You’.

Glowing in an autumnal crimson-hued silk satin draped dress with delicate layered sleeves from Jenny Packham’s Fall 2014 collection, the actress is the embodiment of effeminate elegance.

I love the light and airy feel of the look contrasted with grey Jimmy Choo toecap pumps and a few silver rings to round out her look.

Working a sleek bob hairstyle, her makeup was kept light and fresh.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Jenny Packham – ‘Beyond the Lights’ Urbanworld Film Festival Opening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Jenny Packham - 'Beyond the Lights' Urbanworld Film Festival Opening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the ‘Beyond the Lights’ opening during the Urbanworld Film Festival held at SVA Theater on Thursday (September 18) in New York City.

Opting for an ethereal look, she wore a sugary pink Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2014 mini dress with a tulle overlay and sequin-embellished lace hemline.

As pretty as the dress is, and Gugu in it, it feels a tad too sugary for my liking.

I know I kinda really like this deep down, but I also have a searing toothache.

Styling-wise the look was flawless, with blown-out waves, Jennifer Fisher Jewelry and rose-gold sandals.

Which side of the fence are you on? Sweet or too sugary?

Uma Thurman In Jenny Packham – Chopard And Vanity Fair Present ‘Backstage At Cinecitta’ Exhibition

Uma Thurman In Jenny Packham - Chopard And Vanity Fair Present 'Backstage At Cinecitta' Exhibition

No film festival invite list is complete without Uma Thurman’s name on it.

While she doesn’t have a movie to promote, the actress did attend the Chopard And Vanity Fair Present ‘Backstage At Cinecitta’ Exhibition held at the Cipriani Hotel on Sunday (August 31) during Venice Film Festival.

Uma wore a rich maroon Jenny Packham layered chiffon pleated dress, worn perhaps to provide the perfect backdrop to her stunning diamond and ruby stone necklace.

Styled with gold Jimmy Choo sandals – wish they had been silver – this look overall falls flat for me.

The only thing I would save are the jewels.
