Olivia Munn In J.Mendel – 16th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards

Olivia Munn In JMendel - 16th Annual Costume Designers Guild AwardsOlivia Munn coolly sizzled down the red (or grey) carpet at the 16th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Saturday (February 22), where Kiernan Shipka and Mindy Kaling were also in the mix.

Like Mindy, Olivia was also feeling blue in her J. Mendel floor-sweeping, open-back gown, which had her once again flaunting her affection for bold hues and sultry-sophisticated silhouettes.

Beautifully structured, the corsetry-inspired plunge-front bodice was just revealing enough without crossing the line.

She styled the look with a complementary pair of turquoise-hued statement earrings by Neil Lane, along with Casadei heels and a Calvin Klein mini clutch.

Letting the gown’s colour take top billing, the actress kept her makeup on more neutral nude ground and added another touch of old-Hollywood glam via her side-parted waves.

Lupita Nyong’o In J. Mendel – Late Show with David Letterman

Lupita Nyong'o  In J Mendel - Late Show with David Letterman

Lupita Nyong’o was spotted leaving the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City on Wednesday (February 19) following her guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’.

Going from colour and print for the DuJour party, she wore head-to-toe black on this occasion.

The actress donned a J. Mendel strapless dress featuring a leather bustier, which she styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Geotistrap’ sandals and Graziela Gems earrings.

While it’s not her usually colourful turnout, I love this look from head to toe. In fact, I think I prefer it over her Peter Pilotto outing for a refreshing change of pace.

Quietly elegant and very refined. Are you glad she didn’t wear the sheer skirt look book version?

Padma Lakshmi In J Mendel - 2014 amfAR New York Gala

Padma Lakshmi joined a bevy of beauties on the red carpet for the 2014 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 5) in New York City.

Wearing a striking backless J. Mendel Fall 2013 gown, the draped bodice is artfully slashed through the front to form the wraparound halter strap.

Opting for onyx drop earrings, she rounded out her look with kohl-rimmed eyes and a simple updo.

Less is more. I love that her beauty shines through here unaided by too many distracting trinkets.

This is her second J. Mendel dress in a row, following her SAG Awards look.

Kate Mara In J. Mendel – 3rd Annual NFL Honors

Kate Mara In J Mendel - 3rd Annual NFL Honors

Kate Mara attended the 3rd Annual NFL Honors held at Radio City Music Hall on Saturday (February 1) in New York City.

I almost didn’t recognised the actress with her hair down; as I’m so used to her sporting a tight, slick back bun.

No surprises that she’s wearing J. Mendel – one of her favourite designers.

Kate selected a sleeveless red lace shift dress from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection, featuring a high round neck, a sheer yoke and black sheer contrast organza hem which she complemented with black pumps.

While I wish the shoes weren’t so heavy, this is a good look for the pretty actress which she kept typically simple.

Alison Brie attended the premiere of ‘The LEGO Movie’ held at Regency Village Theatre on Saturday (February 1) in Westwood, California.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a summery J. Mendel frock which was perfect for the sunny afternoon.

Her coral floral jacquard sleeveless dress with a cross-strap back detail and silk organza inserts was styled with simple nude pumps and a glossy pink lips.

I love this look it’s simple, event appropriate, weather appropriate and typically fitting to her lady-like style.

Emmy Rossum In J. Mendel – ELLE’s Annual Women In Television Celebration

Emmy Rossum In J Mendel - ELLE's Annual Women In Television CelebrationEmmy Rossum was also in the mix at ELLE’s Annual Women in Television Celebration, hosted at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, California on Wednesday (January 22), where she joined Kiernan Shipka, Odette Annable and other starlets.

The actress was rather angelic in a delicate J. Mendel bi-colour dress in soft peach and white.

A soft updo went right along with the romantic nature of the diaphanous, Grecian-style frock, which also played a quietly sexy game of peekaboo via a few strategically placed cutouts.

Upping the glam factor, she accessorized with sparkling Chopard chandelier earrings and gold-accented, nude Christian Louboutin ‘Princess’ pumps.

I love how she punched up the pastel hues with a hot pink lip.

Michelle Dockery In J. Mendel – 2014 SAG Awards

Michelle Dockery In J. Mendel - 2014 SAG Awards

Michelle Dockery stunned in monochrome at the 2014 SAG Awards, held at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California on Saturday (January 18).

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star and best ensemble nominee debuted her first-ever J. Mendel design, opting for a sleek, black-and-white moment, which she paired with corresponding dual-colour Gianvito Rossi ‘Alina’ pumps.

On the red carpet, she described the dress as tuxedo-inspired, and it certainly had slightly mannish undertones, given its structure and contrasting mock lapels.

However, the plunging neckline and thigh-high slit brought in plenty of sultry, feminine appeal—although I have a feeling the low-cut bodice may turn some of you off this look.

Similar to her ensemble at Entertainment Weekly’s SAG Awards celebration yesterday, she kept her bold entrance nearly bedazzle free, with only a white clutch and petite David Yurman earrings. Her berry-red lip was piercing, and I loved it for that reason.

It was most certainly the va-va-voom accessory here.

Gretchen Mol In J.Mendel – 2014 SAG Awards

Gretchen Mol In J.Mendel – 2014 SAG Awards

Gretchen Mol looked white hot on the red carpet at the 2014 SAG Awards Saturday in Los Angeles (January 18).

The ‘Boardwalk Empire’ actress wore a modern, short-sleeved J. Mendel gown and shoes, both from the designer’s Spring 2014 collection with Kwiat jewels.

It’s not every day you can say a dress looks as perfect on the red carpet as it did on the runway, but this is one such occasion.

Gretchen looks gorgeous in this mesh and draped creation, and the front slit is just the right amount of sexy.

Simple curls in her blonde bob and raspberry lips complement the white look perfectly.
