InStyle’s Summer Soiree Red Carpet Round Up

Here are the rest of the looks from InStyle’s Summer Soiree, which took place at The London Hotel in West Hollywood last night.

Emilie De Ravin: The Australian actress wore a pretty blue lace dress by the Australian brand Zimmermann. Whilst her dress was full of the joys of summer, her navy-blue t-bar sandals feel a bit heavy and fall-like. I’m also not sure I’m used to her as a brunette; I think I prefer her as a blonde.

Nikki Reed: Each time the ‘Twilight’ actress gives me a look I love, she then puts things in reverse. Her black Jill Stuart dress with floral detailing and Alexandra Birman pumps and burgundy Lauren Merkin ‘Grace’ clutch scream ‘Hello Fall’. Great look, wrong season.

Jordana Brewster: The ‘Dallas’ star was the epitome of summer chic wearing a Bec & Bridge white silk ‘Claudia’ dress with laser-cut trim. A grey clutch, taupe Jimmy Choo ‘Trina’ sandals plus Melinda Maria jewels completed the look.Read More…

Elizabeth Banks In Jill Stuart – The Moms & MARTINI Celebrate ‘People Like Us’

Elizabeth Banks celebrated the release of her new movie ‘People Like Us’ with MARTINI and The Moms at Disney Screening Room in New York City yesterday.

Selecting yet another bold printed frock, the actress wore a Jill Stuart Resort 2012 dress with a v-neck and puffy short sleeves.

Sporting a modern version of Farrah Fawcett’s iconic hairdo, the actress styled her look with Pippa Small statement earrings and Barbara Bui tri-coloured peep-toe platforms.

I love that her stylist found the most perfect heels to complement her dress.

Since Leighton Meester has relinquished her title of having the best shoe closet in Hollywood, it looks like we could have a new title holder.

Kerry Washington In Michael Kors & Jill Stuart – ‘Scandal’ Promo Tour

Kerry Washington was very busy last week promoting her new TV series, ‘Scandal’ which air Thursdays on ABC.

On Thursday Washington was spotted making her way to the ABC studios in New York City for a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’.

She was all smiles in her Michael Kors Fall 2012 fitted dress.

The silver printed long-sleeve dress was teamed with fall-like coloured accessories.

A red clutch and raspberry suede heels were complemented with a red pout.

Kerry left the studios wearing a black dress with leather sleeves, whilst still carrying her red clutch.

The main talking point here is her Nicholas Kirkwood graffiti satin pumps which prevent the look from feeling too stale and boring.

Kerry’s final stop was BET’s ‘106 & Park’. This time she opted for something more youthful pairing a yellow Suno Fall 2012 top with a pleated Jill Stuart Fall 2012 leather skirt.

Another pair of edgy Kirkwood’s would’ve been welcome her, but she opted for black pumps.

Evan Rachel Wood In Jill Stuart – “The Conspirator” Washington DC Premiere

Evan Rachel Wood was in Washington DC yesterday to attend the premiere of her latest movie, “The Conspirator.”

The blonde actress wore a beautiful multi coloured Jill Stuart Fall 2011 printed dress with a neck tie detail.

I love this whimsical silhouette as its classic with a funky twist, but this dress is more suitable in an office than on a red carpet.

As a former PA this is something I would’ve worn to the office, never on the red carpet.

This look has ‘Joan Holloway’ all over it.

I do however love Evan’s Gucci suede rust peep-toes.

A black Ferragmo clutch completed her look.

Whitney Port In Jill Stuart – Marquee Nightclub In The Cosmopolitan VIP Opening

Whitney Port was my favourite on the red carpet at the grand opening of Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas last week.

The reality TV star wore a Jill Stuart Fall 2010 dress.

I love both the texture and bold shoulders on her teal shimmering dress.

Whitney added a gold statement necklace to her fashion forward look along with a Lauren Merkin’s ‘Iris’ clutch

Her trademark high bun and nude strappy sandals completed her look.

My first pick of 2011 for BDOTW.

The necklace really helps sell this look.
