Jessica Alba In Juan Carlos Obando – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Jessica Alba In Juan Carlos Obando – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Jessica Alba was a presenter at the 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California last night.

The actress dazzled in a Juan Carlos Obando number that paired a white, long-sleeved blouse, with bows tied at the wrists, with a metallic, floor-sweeping skirt with.

The contrast between the effortless top and the more over-the-top, sparkling skirt was chic and refreshing, and keeps this ensemble safely away from try-hard territory.

She styled the look with an Edie Parker box clutch and ELAHN jewels, whilst wearing a bronzed smokey eye, a nude lippie and her ombre locks in voluminous crimped waves.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Katie Aselton In Juan Carlos Obando, Amanda Seyfried In Alexander McQueen & Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen

This week I had a huge dilemma: who should I pick for BDOTW out of Katie Aselton in Juan Carlos Obando and Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen?

Thankfully they were your top two as well, so with Katie taking the majority of your votes, I picked Amanda. Both were worthy of taking the top spot in their breathtaking gowns.

Katie for blowing us away in her relatively simple purple gown, and Amanda for her dramatic McQueen gown with bold hair and makeup.

When it came to the fellas it was a much easier choice, Eddie Redmayne taking the title of BDOTW two weeks in a row.

The British actor, who is known for his love of Burberry suits, won wearing an Alexander McQueen ink-blue suit with rich coloured accessories.

BDMOTY was looking like a one-horse race (Andrew Garfield), but it looks like Eddie will be challenging for that title also.

Katie Aselton In Juan Carlos Obando – ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ LA Premiere

Rounding up a very busy red carpet at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California last night was Katie Aselton.

The beautiful actress glided down the red carpet wearing a vibrant Juan Carlos Obando Spring 2013 gown.

Her indigo gown featuring slit sleeves, an origami bodice and fitted skirt which trails off into a long train puts the ‘G’ into glamour.

I’m glad she selected a look by this designer, because he is very underrated in Hollywood.

Katie styled her BDOTW worthy gown with an emerald Judith Leiber croc clutch, Anita Ko diamond-and-emerald jaguar studs, a Graziela ring and a Dana Rebecca Designs bangle.

A wispy updo and neutral makeup completed her look.

I think this stunning gown works just as well without the runway belt. Do you?

Victoria’s Secret Angels Reveal What’s Sexy Now

Victoria’s Secret Angels Lindsay Ellingson, Doutzen Kroes and Erin Heatherton attended Victoria’s Secret Angels Reveal What’s Sexy Now at Mr. C Beverly Hills in California yesterday afternoon.

Lindsay opted for a Juan Carlos Obando flirty pink halter dress with a rise-and-fall hemline and ruffled neckline, which she teamed with orange platform peep-toes.

Doutzen wore a Carlos Miele Spring 2012 black-and-white swirl print dress, which had a plunging neckline and thigh-high split.

Erin stood out wearing a vibrant turquoise ruched gown with cut-out shoulders and a thigh-high slit from the same Carlos Miele Spring 2012 collection.

Gold jewels, metallic gold Stuart Weitzman platform slingbacks and wavy curls completed the Angels’ look.

Doutzen is my favourite here of the three, as she’s wearing the dress I would mostly likely see myself wearing.

Viola Davis In Juan Carlos Obando – 2012 Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon

Neon pink is fast becoming Viola Davis’ favourite colour during her spectacular run on the red carpet recently.

The actress joined many other stars at The Beverly Hilton hotel in California today for the 84th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon.

On this occasion she wore a hot-pink Juan Carlos Obando dress, but we’ve seen her in pink before at the ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’ New York Premiere and W Magazine’s Annual Golden Globe Awards Celebration.

It’s no wonder she loves this colour so much, as it’s very warm and complementary against her skin tone.

Whilst Rooney Mara has given us just two different hairstyles this awards season, Viola sports yet another chic do.

This bang-sweeping crop is one of my favourites from her. It’s modern without making her look like she tried too hard.

Jimmy Choo triple-strap peep-toes completed her look.
