Nina Dobrev In Julien Macdonald - Cosmopolitan's Summer Bash

Nina Dobrev attended Cosmopolitan’s Summer Bash held at Palihouse in West Hollywood, California on Saturday, where she stunned once again.

This time the September cover star wore a Julien Macdonald Fall 2013 sleeveless mini dress featuring nude sheer panels, which she styled with Elie Saab accessories including a gold clutch and white sandals.

Styling her hair in a quiffed ponytail, the actress completed her party look with kohl-rimmed eyes and nude lips.

Hayley Atwell In Julien Macdonald – ‘The World’s End’ World Premiere

Hayley Atwell In Julien Macdonald - ‘The World’s End’ World Premiere

Hayley Atwell joined Rosamund Pike on the red carpet for the world premiere of ‘The World’s End’ held at the Empire Leicester Square in London yesterday evening.

I have to say I was a bit shocked by Hayley choice to wear this Julien Macdonald Fall 2013 sheer embellished gown which just reads attention-grabbing upstage-attempt.

The whole thing lacks class. She’s better than this.

Selena Gomez In Julien Macdonald – 2013 MTV Movie Awards

Selena Gomez In Julien Macdonald - 2013 MTV Movie Awards

Also sporting a highly stylized ponytail at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on the red carpet at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California was Selena Gomez.

The baby-face worked a Dutch braid, pompadour-like ‘do, wearing a very sexy long-sleeved Julien Macdonald gold fringed mini dress from the designer’s recent Fall 2013 collection.

Adding yet more sparkle to her look, she wore champagne-coloured Jimmy Choo ‘Vibe’ peep-toes and gold earrings.

Are you still doubting her more grown-up red carpet looks?

Jameson Empire Awards 2013 Red Carpet Round Up

Empire Awards Women

Here is a look at the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet at Grosvenor House in London yesterday evening for the Jameson Empire Awards 2013.

Ellie Goulding: The singer wore a simple black L’Agence halter dress with two-tone Nicholas Kirkwood sandals. The thing that piques my interest here is her Kzeniya ‘Wild Black’ clutch: the sharp-edged black-and-white leather clutch with geometric mirrors has just become my must have.

Alexandra Roach: With so much black on this red carpet, I was delighted to see the Welsh actress wearing this green-and-white Emilia Wickstead Spring 2013 long-sleeved flared dress. Simple styling – just adding nude Louboutins and a simple bun – ensured all focus was on her gorgeous dress.

Jenna-Louise Coleman: The actress wore a black-and-white on-trend floor-length dress with peaked shoulders and a leather belt accent by Latvia designer, Katya Shehurina. She also styled her look with the Kzeniya ‘Wild Black’ clutch which only fuels my must have desire for this clutch.

Heidi Klum In Julien Macdonald – 2013 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscars Party

2013EltonJohn_HeidiKlum

Heidi Klum joined a bevy of stars on Sunday night for the 2013 Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California.

She channeled the Oscar statuette with her gold Julien Macdonald gown.

While the ‘Project Runway’ host isn’t an Academy Award winner, she certainly was displaying her own ‘trophy’ set.

I did appreciate the Art Deco-fueled inspiration of this ensemble, what with the geometric beading and matching statement earrings. It also followed the sparkling metallic trend we saw so much of on Sunday’s red carpet.

But I simply cannot get past the too-revealing, plunge front of this gown that strutted on the wrong side of risqué—even for this supermodel.

Swept-back hair and a nude lip completed the look—not that anyone was staring at her face.

Vanessa Hudgens In Julien Macdonald – ‘Spring Breakers’ Madrid Premiere

Vanessa Hudgens In Julien Macdonald - 'Spring Breakers' Madrid Premiere

Vanessa Hudgens joined Selena Gomez on the red carpet last night for the ‘Spring Breakers’ Madrid premiere held at the Callao Cinema in Spain.

The actress wore a Julien Macdonald Fall 2012 dress for the occasion.

Her red halter gown embellished with mirrored stones which also features a thigh-high slit is just another disappointing look in this lacklustre promo tour.

I tried to see the glamour in this look, but overall one word comes to mind: tacky.

If this was a movie about Las Vegas showgirls, this look would’ve been perfect.

Giuseppe Zanotti metallic silver pumps completed her look.

Zawe Ashton In Julien Macdonald – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Zawe Ashton In Julien Macdonald - 2013 Elle Style AwardsAfter her fierce foray onto the red carpet of Sunday’s 2013 BAFTA Awards, Zawe Ashton maintained her sartorial shock factor at the 2013 Elle Style Awards the following evening.

The British actress was a silver bullet at London’s Savoy Hotel, as she donned her second Julien Macdonald look in as many days.

Compacted with rows and rows of silver, mirror-like studs, this geometric, plunge gown had quite the reflective properties—and some sort of glam sci-fi vibe that I’m still trying to figure out.

She paired the look with jewellery from H. Stern and Annoushka, a silver Jimmy Choo ‘Ciggy’clutch and Christian Louboutin heels.

With such a strong fashion statement, I would have liked her beauty to be softer. Her hair was just too severe and the makeup far too much.

Equal parts provocative and rebel-chic, Zawe had no problem grabbing stares from the stylish Elle guest list.

Did you think this look was out-of-this-world or just way too over-the-top?

Zawe Ashton In Julien Macdonald – 2013 BAFTA Awards

2013BAFTA_ZawaAshton

Zawe Ashton exudes a strong rebel chic vibe at the 2013 BAFTA Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London on Sunday.

I’m usually a big fan of the Zawe’s red carpet choices, but I can’t get behind this busy Julian McDonald Spring 2012 number.

The all-over embroidery and sheer skirted bottom on this gown induced some serious detail overkill; which had the actress looking a touch too theatrical on the red carpet.

Perfect for the Grammys, not so much on a cold rainy night in London for the BAFTAs.
