Famke Janssen In J Mendel - 'X-Men Days Of Future Past' World Premiere

Famke Janssen took to the red carpet for the ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ world premiere held at Jacob Javits Center on Saturday (May 10) in New York City.

The actress wore a J. Mendel strapless bustier dress with organza inserts, which she styled with black accessories which help dial down the saccharine nature of the look somewhat.

Tousled tresses and a diamond encrusted bracelet completed her look.

Anna Kendrick In J Mendel - 2014 Met Gala

Anna Kendrick looks sophisticated on the red carpet of the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The actress paired her sleek J. Mendel gown with a stunning Graff diamond necklace, earrings and ring, Rauwolf clutch and Brian Atwood shoes.

Anna was the epitome of elegance in the classic monochrome dress. A little extra edge was added with cutouts at the front and back.

She truly stuck to the gala’s theme with this entire look, topping it off with a graceful updo, cat eye and rosy pink lip.

This update on Old Hollywood works perfectly for the event. Although simple, Anna definitely hit all the right notes. Would you say the same?

This is the ultimate in refined eveningwear; styled with a simple box clutch, wavy tresses and neutral makeup, she couldn’t look more sophisticated.

Kristen Wiig In J. Mendel – ‘Hateship Loveship’ New York Screening

Kristen Wiig In J Mendel - 'Hateship Loveship' New York Screening

Kristen Wiig attended the ‘Hateship Loveship’ screening held at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday (April 8) in New York City.

Known for her love of all things minimalist, usually of the Balenciaga variety, I was somewhat taken aback by this colour-block asymmetrical choice from J. Mendel.

I can picture this sleeveless Fall 2014 dress – which features a solid leather mock neck and front panel at the bodice, a solid leather waistband and a draped asymmetric wrap-front skirt – on Chloe Sevigny, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Connelly and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley without the second layer of the skirt, but Kristen, who has worked an edgy look or two in her time, doesn’t sell it to me. Not one bit, and it’s got nothing to do with the safe Alejandro Ingelmo ‘Tron’pumps.

Rather, it’s because it feels so disingenuous and so far removed from her usual style – not that I don’t appreciate her stepping out of her comfort zone.

I love her and the dress, but not her in the dress.

Taylor Swift In J. Mendel – ACM Awards 2014

Taylor Swift In J Mendel - ACM Awards 2014

Taylor Swift is known for her glamorous gowns with plenty of sparkle, so colour us all surprised by her look at the 49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (April 6) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This J. Mendel ivory silk-crepe asymmetrical-slit and cut-out-shoulder-detail crop top and black thigh-high-slit skirt is just the switch up in style which most of you have been crying out for.

While I do love and share Taylor’s love for sparkling romantic gowns, I am also excited about the new look courtesy of J. Mendel.

The fact that this is a custom piece proves that she was looking for a change.

Even the signature red lip is not apparent. She styled her look with a Jennifer Fisher ring, Marina B bangle and ring, plus black leather Casadei ‘Trikini’ sandals with gold-tone hardware, and an M2Malletier clutch.

A refreshing change or are you not buying this look on Taylor?
