Teresa Palmer In J. Mendel Couture – 2017 Producers Guild Awards

I often find beauty in complexity, but that wasn’t the case when I saw Teresa Palmer in J. Mendel Couture at the 2017 Producers Guild Awards on Saturday (January 28) in Beverly Hills, California.

There is way too much going on.

I’m not sure even a red carpet veteran could make this work.

It’s a real shame as there are so many beautiful elements, but they seem to collide head on here.

Gretchen Mol In J. Mendel – 2017 SAG Awards

Gretchen Mol attended the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

The ‘Manchester by the Sea’ actress wore a gown from the J.Mendel Spring 2017 collection.

The dropped waist gave the dress a 20’s feel which was reflected in her loose finger waves.

Her necklace though, was an unnecessary addition which distracted from the details of the beaded bodice.

A Judith Leiber clutch completed her look.

Nathalie Emmanuel In J. Mendel – 2017 SAG Awards

Nathalie Emmanuel attended the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress glittered in heavily embellished gown from the J.Mendel Fall 2016 couture collection.

An ornate piece like this could’ve overwhelmed Emmanuel, but she kept her accessories – which included Alexander White sandals – and makeup simple in order to let the dress take center stage.

Julie Bowen In J. Mendel- 2017 SAG Awards

Julie Bowen attended the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

The ‘Modern Family’ actress wore an intricate white gown from J.Mendel’s Spring 2017 collection.

The peekaboo aspect of the gown is interesting but the colour doesn’t allow her to standout.

Some contrasting accessories, and perhaps bolder jewelry would help to liven up this look.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Vera Wang & J. Mendel Couture – 2017 Golden Globe Awards & People’s Choice Awards

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 8) before winning Favourite Premium Series Actress at the People’s Choice Awards 2017 on Wednesday (January 18) in LA.

2017 Golden Globe Awards: We always expect SJP to bring her own quirky, eclectic style to the red carpet. Sometimes it works and, well, sometimes it just doesn’t—like here. She single-handedly turned the red carpet into a wedding aisle with this Vera Wang Fall 2017 Bridal gown, the sleeves of which were the worst offender.

2017 People’s Choice Awards: The original presentation of this J Mendel Fall 2016 Couture bronze metallic dress was mesmerizing. Sadly, SJP cut her version short, added sleeves, and removed the cutouts, turning it into a cross between period costume and bad prom dress.

Jordana Brewster In J. Mendel – 2017 People’s Choice Awards

Jordana Brewster was also at the People’s Choice Awards 2017 on Wednesday (January 18) in LA.

While the PCAs usually sees a slightly less formal red carpet, that didn’t keep the actress from gliding out a long halter gown.

The cornflower-blue colour of this J Mendel Spring 2017 dropped-waist design was nothing short of alluring. But, what really sold the look to me was seeing it in movement, with the diaphanous flow of the semi-sheer, plisse skirt.

Ponytails popped up as a favoured beauty look this year at the PCAs, and this sleek ’do on Jordana was a model version.
