Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Melonie Diaz In J Mendel - ‘Mandela Long Walk To Freedom’ Special New York ScreeningMelonie Diaz was also among the stars at the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ New York screening at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City on Monday night.

She took a monochromatic approach in a simply sophisticated J. Mendel dress paired with Jimmy Choo black pumps.

Even though the black-and-white, loose-fitting frock featured embossed embellishment, it still wasn’t enough to make me take notice.

Centre-parted locks and pale pink lip completed her ensemble.

Sure, she looked pretty and polished, but this look still left me wishing for the fashionable punch line.

'Mandela Long Walk To Freedom' Special Screening Red Carpet Roundup

There were some models who took to the red carpet yesterday evening for the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ screening hosted by U2, Anna Wintour, and Bob and Harvey Weinstein with Burberry in New York City.

Anne V: Working a black-and-red look, the model wore a Versace Fall 2013 embossed sleeveless dress with black accessories in the same manner as Nieves Alvarez. I would’ve loved her to have worked either fierce smoky eyes or a bold lip colour with this look.

Chanel Iman: She did work a smoky eye with her pretty J. Mendel Resort 2014 seafoam silk-mousseline and satin-faced chiffon gown featuring geometric-cut pleating.

Sessilee Lopez: Turning to her go-to designer and friend Zac Posen, the pregnant model donned a Zac Posen pretty printed Spring 2014 gown with ruffled shoulders and a V-neckline.

Considering the star of the movie Naomie Harris didn’t wear a gown, did Chanel Iman and Sessilee Lopez overdress for this screening?

Ciara In J. Mendel – 2013 American Music Awards

Ciara looked every bit the R&B starlet on the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday night.

The singer wore a graphic, peek-a-boo gown from the J. Mendel Spring 2014 collection, which I think is safe to say was made for her.

The graphically patterned dress offers an exciting ‘is it or isn’t it’ continuous flash of skin, and manages to reveal a lot, without actually seeming all that risqué.

Ciara was smart to keep the accessories at the bare minimum and really let this dress sing, and even kept her makeup to the glam minimum.

My one disappointment here is her hair. I was loving her shoulder-length bob, and this shorter version just seems a bit too perky and soccer mom for the star. I look forward to seeing how she styles it for her next public appearance.

Kristen Wiig In J Mendel - 'The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty' Sydney Premiere

Kristen Wiig stepped out to promote ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ at the film’s premiere in Sydney, Australia on Thursday.

The actress injected a burst of colour into the day, thanks to her lemon, nude, and black-hued J. Mendel Spring 2014 look. Staying true to her quirky, low-key style, she chose a dress that not only boasted a playful palette, but also featured a dynamic texture, consisting of lace, jacquard, organza, and a graphic-tiered hem.

Her black Christian Louboutin ‘June’ pumps and go-to messy updo completed the look.

I’ve become so used to Kristen’s penchant for shapeless dress shapes that I’m not even bothered by it now. Instead, I really love her sunny pick from head to toe.

What do you think?

Jennifer Lawrence In J Mendel - Late Show with David Letterman

Prior to the New York premiere for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, Jennifer Lawrence made a guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’.

Braving the cold, the actress wore a J. Mendel Spring 2014 two-piece look consisting of a long-sleeved leaf-motif-embroidered tulle crop top with a black silk skirt with organza inserts, styled with a much-needed black Burberry leather-and-shearling jacket.

I really wanted to like this look, but I’m not a fan of the skirt as I’m starting to get slightly fatigued by the sheer-insert trend.

A nice pair of cigarette pants would’ve been preferred.

Narciso Rodriguez black-and-white sandals, Melinda Maria earrings and a pink pout completed her look.

Lupita Nyong'o In J Mendel - '12 Years A Slave' Movies For Grownups Film Festival Screening

Lupita Nyong’o attended the screening of ’12 Years A Slave’ at AARP’s Movies For Grownups Film Festival 2013 held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Saturday prior to the Governors Awards 2013.

On this occasion she wore a very sophisticated look; some might even call this an ‘Anna Wintour dress’, such is the uptown nature of the J. Mendel micro-dot tweed sleeveless boat-neck fitted dress with black inserts at the waist and a flared skirt.

However, even Anna would’ve rocked a shorter version of this look, as I wish Lupita had.

Black Christian Louboutin pumps with a gold-studded toecap accessorized her look, along with a rare clear glossy lip.
