Ciara In J. Mendel – 2013 American Music Awards

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 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

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 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.

Amy Adams took to the red carpet at Hamilton And Los Angeles Confidential Magazine’s announcement of the 7th Annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards in Los Angeles, California yesterday.

The actress wore a J. Mendel Resort 2014 dress featuring an all-over black-and-cream graphic lined print, a sportier sleeveless neckline, and a full skirt that cut just below the knee. It was a figure-flattering silhouette that proved both eye-catching and polished — Amy’s style in a nutshell.

A pair of Jamie Wolf earrings, a bangle by Dana Rebecca Designs, glamorous waves, and a berry lip shade completed the look.

Hailee Steinfeld In J. Mendel – Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Hailee Steinfeld - J Mendel - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Hailee Steinfeld continued the promo circuit for her new film, ‘Ender’s Game,’ with a guest appearance on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ in New York City on Tuesday.

The starlet continued to show off her trendsetting ways in a J. Mendel Spring 2014 ivoire mixed lace tromp l’oeil shirt dress, which she actually winterized with black tights and ankle-strap pumps.

The patchwork frock managed to serve up both a sweet and sporty quality, with her super-long, glossy locks and mostly minimal makeup adding to the youthfully chic edge.

We’ve seen a few black-and-white-themed numbers from Hailee recently. Do you like her more monochromatic modishness or are you craving some colour?

Lupita Nyong’o In J. Mendel – 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Lupita Nyong'o In J Mendel - 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening.

Continuing her epic red carpet run, the actress wore a J. Mendel sleeveless gown with a keyhole detail in a bright-yellow hue, making her skin look even more radiant.

Gold Monique Pean jewels, a silver Judith Leiber clutch and Jean-Michel Cazabat heels accessorized her look.

On this occasion her makeup artist applied a copper eye shadow and orange lip colour. I have never tried an orange lip before; this has inspired me to give it a go.

Putting my thumb over her clutch, this look is definitely in her Top 10 of the 11 looks we have seen from her so far.
