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

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

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.

Heidi Klum In Julien Macdonald – 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Heidi Klum In Julien Macdonald - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Heidi Klum flaunted her supermodel superpower during yesterday’s 2013 People’s Choice Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California.

The ‘Project Runway’ host presented on the night wearing slinky black and metallic embellished gown from the Julien Macdonald Spring 2013 collection matched with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Heidi look every bit as good as the runway model, as the strategically placed cutouts and a pin-baring thigh-high slit showed off her statuesque frame.

The asymmetrical neckline added visual interest. Luckily, she tied her hair back into a slick ponytail, so the shape of the dress wasn’t covered up.

Christian Louboutin’s vampy ‘Crosspiga’ stilettos finished the look. It’s not the first time these pointy-toe heels have made an appearance. Rihanna and Bond girl Olga Kurylenko are also fans of this shoe.

So do you think Heidi’s look was in or out?

Delilah In Julien Macdonald – 2012 British Fashion Awards

Rising singing sensation, Delilah, joined a host of celebs on the red carpet at the Savoy Hotel in London last night for the 2012 British Fashion Awards.

She wore possibly the most elaborate frock on the night, wearing a gown by the designer of the moment, Julien Macdonald.

The long-sleeve fully-embellished gown with a plunging illusion neckline and netted skirt with feather embellishments seems to overwhelm her.

I think someone much taller and less well-endowed was needed to pull off this gown.
