Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lanvin – ‘Beyond The Lights’ New York Premiere

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lanvin - 'Beyond The Lights' New York Premiere

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the ‘Beyond The Lights’ New York premiere held at the Regal Union Square on Thursday (November 13) in New York City.

The actress left me breathless wearing a custom-made Lanvin creation by Alber Elbaz which isn’t her first. It would appear that the designer is just as taken as we are by the stunning starlet and is very much up for the challenge of creating a gown to match her beauty.

Her emerald green one-shoulder column gown with crystal embroidered paneling at waist was yet another timeless, elegant creation, but factor in the retro waves and flawless makeup and you will find me saying this is a best dressed of the week contender if I ever saw one.

One for her hall of fame.

A Week In Michelle Monaghan’s Closet Wearing Lanvin, Sally LaPointe & Roksanda

A Week In Michelle Monaghan's Closet Wearing Lanvin, Sally LaPointe & Roksanda

It’s been another busy and stylish week on the red carpet for Michelle Monaghan, who attended three events in LA, showcasing three very different looks.

2014 Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards: On Sunday (November 9) the actress looked pretty, keeping the hair and makeup very simple and wearing a Lanvin Resort 2015 green cocktail dress with a tiered skirt styled with snakeskin Louboutins and a green and gold-tone Ferragamo clutch.

AFI Fest Special Tribute to Sophia Loren: Opting for a bold lip colour and wavy tresses, Michelle wore a Sally LaPointe Resort 2015 layered dress crafted from alligator skin for quite an unusual look – one perfectly styled with Christian Louboutin heels and a Lanvin clutch.

Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America – 10th Anniversary Heroes Gala: Last night (November 13) the actress made it a trio of gorgeous looks, this time wearing a Roksanda Fall 2014 felt and bonded jersey dress coat in a fitted A-line silhouette with short sleeves and geometric colour-block panels throughout. Caramel Louboutins with a colourful studded toecap, and a gold clutch rounded out this luxe fall look.

As the weather is less than summery this side of the pond, I find myself instantly gravitating towards the Roksanda look – that, plus its impeccable craftsmanship and autumnal hues.

Anne Hathaway In Lanvin – ‘Interstellar’ Shanghai Press Conference

Anne Hathaway In Lanvin - 'Interstellar' Shanghai Press Conference

Anne Hathaway took her latest movie, ‘Interstellar’, to Asia, where she attended the press conference held at the Peninsula Shanghai on Monday (November 10) in Shanghai, China.

The thing about Anne’s promo tour, which has seen her style put firmly under the microscope, is the surprising amount of unflattering opinions we’ve seen.

On this occasion she wore a Lanvin Resort 2015 tri-colour nude, white and black lace dress which, while event appropriate and lady-like, is still not setting of any star-power fireworks.

Perhaps our expectation for the Oscar-winning actress runs too high.

Olivia Munn In Lanvin – American Ballet Theatre 2014 Opening Night Fall Gala

Olivia Munn In Lanvin - American Ballet Theatre 2014 Opening Night Fall Gala

Olivia Munn attended the American Ballet Theatre 2014 Opening Night Fall Gala, ‘Scarlett, Red, White & Blue’, held at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City on Wednesday (October 22).

The actress wore a Lanvin Fall 2014 feathered frock which was a more playful look than we would expect to see on the red carpet at this event.

I’m sure some will be horrified that she took scissors to her frock, which sat just above the knee on the runway, but Olivia was clearly there to have fun, amping up the look with a bubblegum-pink lip, polka dot clutch and high bun.

Loving it or loathing it?

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lanvin – ‘Beyond The Lights’ Chicago International Film Festival Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lanvin - 'Beyond The Lights' Chicago International Film Festival Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended a screening of ‘Beyond The Lights’ at the 50th annual Chicago International Film Festival at the AMC River East 21 on Friday (October 10) in Chicago, Illinois.

The British actress wore a demurely elegant Lanvin Resort 2015 knee-length LBD spliced with a white bow detail at the neckline giving this sophisticated look a girlish flourish.

With that gorgeous face, chic updo and diamond jewels, the look didn’t need much else, so simple black pumps provided the finishing touch.

I love Gugu’s style. Simple, elegant, without a hint of trying too hard.

Suki Waterhouse In Lanvin – ‘Love, Rosie’ London Premiere

Suki Waterhouse In Lanvin - ‘Love, Rosie’ London Premiere

Suki Waterhouse joined Lily Collins on the red carpet for the world premiere of ‘Love, Rosie’ held at the Odeon West End on Monday (October 6) in London, England.

The actress wore one of those shimmering pieces from Lanvin’s Spring 2015 collection and, while I like the long-sleeved frock, it was let down by some rather unfortunate styling.

Neither the leopard-trim coat or hot-pink Jimmy Choo clutch are working with this look for me. The coat feels like a forced attempt to make this look cool, and the clutch feels like a last-minute addition.

As always, her style is very hit and miss.
