Krysten Ritter In J. Mendel – ‘Big Eyes’ New York Premiere

Krysten Ritter In J Mendel - 'Big Eyes' New York Premiere

Krysten Ritter attended the ‘Big Eyes’ New York premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday (December 15) in New York City.

The actress wore a J. Mendel black and gold pleated dress cut to gently skim the body in the most flattering way, with an illusion neckline, which is successfully doing its job.

I love how she kept the black and gold theme going for this elegant after-dark look with Brian Atwood ‘Chance’ ankle-strap pumps and a J. Mendel ‘Cavallino Minuit’ minaudiere.

Head-to-toe perfection.

Kim Kardashian In Mugler & J. Mendel – Paper Magazine Break The Internet Issue Release Party

Kim Kardashian In Mugler - Paper Magazine Break The Internet Issue Release Party

Kim Kardashian attended the Paper Magazine Break The Internet Issue Release Party to celebrate her cover held at 1111 Lincoln Road on Thursday (December 4) in Miami, Florida.

The reality star donned a sexy two-piece look, consisting of a Mugler bandeau and J. Mendel maxi skirt with a thigh-high slit.

Yes, it’s another belly-baring look, but here she serves up just a slice.

What struck me about this look was how effortless this look was.

For once the hair wasn’t strictly slicked back, the makeup was more neutral and didn’t feel too heavily contoured, and even the accessories were kept to a bare minimum, with just a few diamonds and gold-embellished sandals to speak of.

Effortlessly chic or bland by her standards?

Taylor Swift In J. Mendel & Zuhair Murad Couture – 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Taylor Swift In J Mendel & Zuhair Murad Couture -  2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Taylor Swift had two red carpet looks for the 2014 Victoria’s Secret fashion show held at Earls Court on Tuesday (December 2) in London, England.

Red Carpet: The first look of the evening, a J. Mendel Spring 2015 steel strapless embroidered dress, had a been-there-done-that feel about it. Everything felt too familiar about this look, from the hemline to the style of dress.

After-Party: For the after-party she blew me away wearing a Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 Couture long-sleeve white silk gown with crystal-embellished sheer bodice and sleeve plus a sexy side slit. While I am on the fence regarding her shoe choice, the gown is outstanding, showcasing a rare sexy side to her red carpet look, which she topped off with red lips and retro waves. Her best in a while and one for her hall of fame.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Zhang Ziyi In J. Mendel & Kate Beckinsale In Kaufmanfranco

Best Dressed Of The Week - Zhang Ziyi In J Mendel & Kate Beckinsale In Kaufmanfranco

Zhang Ziyi was your best dressed this week. You were captivated by the Asian actress’ beauty, wearing a stunning J. Mendel floral gown styled with dazzling emerald earrings.
My favourite this week was Kate Beckinsale.

I know some believed that the actress overcooked her Kaufmanfranco stunning white gown with her Bulgari Serpenti necklace, however, I think it made the look along with her Lee Savage clutch and simple ponytail. Head-to-toe perfect.

Zhang Ziyi In J. Mendel – 2014 Golden Horse Awards

Zhang Ziyi In J Mendel - 2014 Golden Horse Awards

Zhang Ziyi attended the 51st Golden Horse Awards held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall on Saturday (November 22) in Taipei, Taiwan.

The actress stunned wearing a J. Mendel Resort 2015 gown with a mint green skirt and lace netted sleeves spliced with an orange detail accenting the waist.

I love how she took evening dressing in an enigmatic direction with this dark-print gown, as these occasions can tend to bring out the pastel-hued poofy princess gowns which the actress has evolved past.

Styling her hair into a chic chignon, those earrings deserve a spot on the BDOTW list on their own.

Gillian Jacobs In J. Mendel – ‘Life Partners’ LA Premiere

Gillian Jacobs In J Mendel - 'Life Partners' LA Premiere

Gillian Jacobs joined Leighton Meester for the premiere of ‘Life Partners’ held at ArcLight Hollywood on Tuesday (November 18) in Hollywood, California.

The actress, who appears to be taking a pause on colour and print, wore a J. Mendel navy lace panelled strapless frock with a boned fitted bodice defined by the twist at the waist and the draped crossover slit which divides the skirt.

Sensual without trying too hard, I love the shorter length on Gillian in comparison to the image below as Gillian’s look has a more youthful flair.

While she does give a subtle colour pop via her pedicure, the look is perfectly styled with a silver statement ring and Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Orner’ sandals cut-out sandals.

Are you enjoying this pause on colour?
