Red Carpet Fashion Awards

ElizabethMoss1

Elisabeth Moss attended the 2014 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 12) in Beverly Hills, California.

A big night for Elisabeth, as she was nominated for ‘Top of the Lake’ the actress walked the red carpet in a runway look from J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2014.

Elisabeth joined the likes of other actresses like Olivia Wilde and opted for a beaded gown. The two-toned burgundy and black design was a bit 1920’s-inspired but made modern with a structured silhouette with capped sleeves.

The nominee added a dose of gold via a thin cuff, ring, and geometric earrings by Jennifer Meyer.

Despite the interesting and certainly intricate detail of the beading, this gown did not win me over. What’s your take?

Anna Kendrick In J Mendel - Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Anna Kendrick added some vampish glamour to the Art of Elysium’s 7th annual Heaven Gala in Los Angeles, held at the Skirball Cultural Centre on Saturday night (January 11).

In a black J.Mendel Spring 2014 pleated dress with lace bolero- style shoulders and an on-trend cut-out detail, it’s great to see Anna move away from her tried and tested nude and blush looks, but this feels a little too structured.

The embellished clutch is a nice touch, but the Christian Loubotuin ‘Love me’ bow-front heels are a little too prim, I would have preferred to see this look styled with a high sandal.

While it’s refreshing for Anna wear something more daring, I’m just not convinced it works. I can’t help but feel it’s a little too structured especially with such formal hair. Some waves like was saw at the Z100’s Jingle Ball last year would have been so much better. Do you agree?

Michelle Obama In J Mendel - TNT’s Christmas in Washington 2013

The Obamas attended TNT’s Christmas in Washington 2013 hosted by Anna Kendrick at the National Building Museum on Sunday (December 15) in Washington, DC, where Sheryl Crow performed.

Perhaps not as often as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, but Michelle Obama is also known to repeat her looks.

On this occasion, the First Lady wore the same J. Mendel Resort 2013 look we first saw her wear to the pre-Olympics reception prior to the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games back in July last year.

Her white tailored jacket with overlapped side panels and silver embroidery was paired with an ivory pleated skirt and styled with the same metallic-silver Manolo Blahnik pumps.

Anna Kendrick In J Mendel - TNT's Christmas in Washington 2013

Anna Kendrick hosted TNT’s Christmas in Washington 2013 held at the National Building Museum on Sunday (December 15) in Washington, DC.

Donning her second look of the weekend, the actress wore a J. Mendel ivory panne-velvet strapless bustier column gown with a draped bodice.

In the right light this is a great look for her, complementing her milky complexion. The onstage light is more flattering than the backstage lighting.

Opting for neutral makeup and with her hair swept up into an updo, she styled the look with a host of jewels, including earrings by Yellowsmith, a wave palm cuff by Graziela Gems and crystal bangles by EF Collection, with a Swarovski clutch rounding out her look.

Kate Mara In J Mendel - 'Her' LA Premiere

Kate Mara joined her sister Rooney Mara on the red carpet on Thursday evening (December 12) for the ‘Her’ LA premiere held at the DGA Theatre in California.

While I’m surprised to see her rockin’ a new blonde ‘do, I’m not surprised to see her wearing a look with an above-the-knee hemline, as she loves to show off her toned pins.

Kate wore a summery J. Mendel Spring 2014 look consisting of a metallic leaf jacquard two-tiered sleeveless top and an ivory leaf-motif-embroidered tulle-crepe-back mini skirt which was lined from the runway.

Quite the yin to her sister’s yang, I’m sure you’ll agree.

A gold clutch and Charlotte Olympia platform heels rounded out her typically pretty look.

Who Wore J Mendel Better Amber Heard or Kerry Washington

Back in August Amber Heard wore a summery white J. Mendel dress featuring sheer inserts to the press conference for ‘Paranoia’.

She styled her pretty dress with just nude pumps and a simple ponytail.

Kerry Washington wore the same dress a few months later for PaleyFest’s ‘She’s Making Media’ panel held in her honour.

I wasn’t fond of the length of the frock on Kerry, nor of her choice of accessories, especially that Hunting Season clutch, so Amber wins for me.
