Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

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.
