Hayley Atwell In Julien Macdonald – ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ London Premiere

Hayley Atwell In Julien Macdonald - ‘Captain America The Winter Soldier’ London PremiereHayley Atwell was also at the ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ London premiere on Thursday night (March 20), where she joined Scarlett Johansson on the ‘blue’ carpet at Westfield London.

After debuting a more demure gown at the Los Angeles premiere, the actress returned to the sexier, high-octane fashion habitat of Julien MacDonald for her London look.

Her Fall 2014 dove-grey dress, enhanced with a dynamic firework pattern of feathery, metallic adornment, had all the signatures of the designer’s fall collection—piles of intricate decoration, beading and sequins galore, and plenty of skin-baring peekaboo details.

Still, I don’t find myself totally discounting this look. Even with the revealing cutout at the bodice, this frock treads on the righter side of sophisticated—at least when compared to some of her prior Julien MacDonald moments.

Her boldest accessory was that pair of fire-engine-red Christian Louboutin pumps, with Messika Paris bracelet and snake ring, alongside a silver Zagliani clutch, echoing the embellishment of the dress.

Hit or miss?

Hayley Atwell In Temperley London – ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ LA Premiere

Hayley Atwell In Temperley London - ‘Captain America The Winter Soldier’ LA Premiere

Hayley Atwell joined Scarlett Johansson for the premiere of Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ at the El Capitan Theatre on Thursday (March 13) in Hollywood, California.

The British actress wore a Temperley London Pre-Fall 2014 beautifully feminine textured gown with soft crepe pin-tuck layers, sheer sleeves and an exposing lace slit in the skirt for a feminine look.

Sweeping her hair over to one side, she added gorgeous yellow-diamond drop earrings and a tantalizing red lip to her look.

As we know, Hayley’s style can be very hit and miss – especially when selecting Julien Macdonald gowns – but this is the best I have seen her in a while. Pretty and sexy without trying too hard.

Taylor Swift In Julien Macdonald – Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014

Taylor Swift In Julien Macdonald - Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014

Taylor Swift attended the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 2) in West Hollywood, California.

Opting for a vampish look Taylor wore a black sequin Julien Macdonald floor-length gown with sheer long sleeves.

It was great to see her try such a sultry look and one that made her look a real Hollywood starlet.

An Emm Kuo clutch, Tamara Mellon ‘Whisper’ suede sandals, deep red nails, a magnificent ruby and diamond cocktail ring and dramatic eyes made for the finishing touches in this sexy look.

You may remember that Kate Beckinsale wore this same dress to the same event back in 2011. Thanks to MeMo for the eagle eye.

Peaches Geldof In Julien Macdonald & J Brand – NME Awards 2014

Peaches Geldof In Julien Macdonald - NME Awards 2014Peaches Geldof joined Laura Whitmore at the NME Awards 2014, hosted Wednesday (February 26) at the Bixton Academy in London, England.

Perhaps taking a page out of Laura’s shiny fashion playbook, Peaches did go for the glitz in an expectedly showy, sapphire and black Julien Macdonald Fall 2013 frock.

Loaded with the razzle-dazzle of embellishment and the sexy appeal of jagged, peekaboo cutouts, the itsy-bitsy party dress was nothing if not an attention-stealer.

She did take the look in another direction by adding some grunge to that glitter with a tough-girl, J Brand ‘Aiah’ black leather jacket. Punk style showed up, too, given the pink tips of her dip-dyed blonde locks.

The biggest surprise here may have been the anomaly of her rather tame pair of black pumps.

Jessie J In Julien Macdonald – Universal Music Brit Awards After-Party

Jessie J In Julien Macdonald - Universal Music Brit Awards After-Party

Jessie J attended Universal Music’s after-party following the Brit Awards 2014 held at Soho House ‘Popup’ Bar on Wednesday (February 19) in London.

Going from bad to worse (even though it was not believed possible), she continued to drink the Julien Macdonald kool-aid, this time wearing another ill-advised black catsuit with gold fringed detailing from the designer’s Fall 2014 collection.

I read a funny article over at The Cut yesterday which surmised that the fashion was so bad at the Brits because all of their stylists have decamped to Milan for fashion week, so their clients are left to fend for themselves.

An interesting theory and one that, in this case, might be very true.

Following her performance, Katy Perry was also a guest presenter at the Brit Awards 2014 held at the O2 Arena in London on Wednesday evening (February 19).

The singer wore a bedazzled Julien Macdonald Fall 2014 fitted short sleeve frock styled with high-shine metallic Rupert Sanderson ‘Syra’ pumps.

This is much more like it, despite the fact that Jessie J’s look by the same designer is likely to haunt me forever.
