Meryl Streep In Lanvin – Oscars 2014

Meryl Streep In Lanvin - Oscars 2014

The acting goddess that is Meryl Streep made her mark on the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday (March 2) in Hollywood, California.

The 18-time nominee wore an elegant Lanvin gown that dipped slightly off the shoulder and suited her quirky personal style perfectly.

You never know what you’re going to get from Meryl on the red carpet, but this look is lovely and age appropriate and the belt and bracelets add a nice touch of style and visual appeal.

Of course, it would have been great to see Meryl make a bit more effort with her hair and makeup, but her simplistic take on beauty is part of what make Meryl, Meryl.

Lupita Nyong'o In Lanvin - 'Non-Stop' LA Premiere

Lupita Nyong’o joined Michelle Dockery and Julianne Moore on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘Non-Stop’ held at the Regency Village Theatre on Monday (February 24) in Westwood, California.

Opting for a similar coppery hue to her NAACP Image Awards gown, the actress selected Lanvin on this occasion.

Her Spring 2014 shiny lamé plisse strapless dress looked slightly different to the dress which we saw on the runway, as the actress opted wear the dress with the black zipper showing to given the look a whole new dimension.

Keeping the high-shine, metallic finish theme going, she styled the look with Sergio Rossi pumps, a black Rauwolf clutch, a Solange Azagury-Partridge ring and Janis Savitt earrings.

You’ll be glad to see that she switched up the hairstyle from Saturday, giving us yet another sharp, fresh ‘do, with her makeup being the only thing that could possibly out-shine her frock.

It was a resounding nay on her Givenchy gown, so how does this look fare?

Brit Awards 2014 Menswear Roundup

Brit Awards men 1The Brit Awards 2014 on Wednesday (February 19) certainly brought some colourful, if not questionable, entrances from the starlets who crowded the O2 Arena in London, England. Not leaving the fashion fun to just the ladies, a crush of guys also flexed their sartorial strength.

Pharrell Williams: Yet again leaving his hat trick for another day, the entertainer returned to his favoured designer with this Lanvin charcoal-grey, lamé-effect two-button suit from the Hiver 2014 Pre-Collection. He paired the high-shine suit with a white tuxedo shirt with pearl buttons and a black satin bow tie, capping off the look with black patent leather derbies sans socks. Of course, he pulled his signature style move by rolling his pants into a cropped length to complete this cool-kid look.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper gave us his dapper best in a Dolce & Gabbana two-tone champagne and charcoal-grey ensemble, featuring a textured, dotted blazer and vest and cropped trousers. He wore the suit with a printed grey tie, white shirt and socks-less black loafers. Did you like his mixing and matching?

Elle Style Awards Men

Here is a quick look at some of the fellas on the red carpet from this evening’s (February 18) Elle Style Awards 2014 held at London’s One Embankment.

Pharrell Williams: Not picking up the Best Dressed Man of the Year (although he should have) the musician was happy with his International Recording Artist of the Year award. No surprise that he’s wearing his go-to designer Alber Elbaz; wearing a head-to-toe Lanvin Pre-Fall 2014 look consisting of a black leopard effect tuxedo blazer with satin peak lapels, and black-and-green two-tone cropped trousers. His white cotton tuxedo shirt with accented pearl buttons and styled with a signature black bow-tie, with black leather derbies rounding out his look. Thank god he left his Vivienne Westwood Mountain hat at home.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper continues his epic run this week, attending his third fashion-related event in as many days. On this occasion to collect his UK Recording Artist Of The Year award you could see him from a mile away wearing a manly magenta Dolce & Gabbana double breasted suit, styled with a black bow-tie and loafers, obviously. It’s a bold look. Not many dudes would even attempt to pull it off, but I gotta say he makes it work, even though I am not a fan of shiny suits.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Lanvin – 2014 BAFTAs

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Lanvin - 2014 BAFTAsMaggie Gyllenhaal attended the 2014 BAFTAs, held on Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

For the occasion, the actress wore a custom-made Lanvin deep-violet, frosted lace gown with grosgrain-embroidered detailing.

A jewelry box could have exploded on the bodice, what with its clutter of gems, jewels and pearl embellishment.

Heavily bedecked and bedazzled, this long-sleeve design was nearly giving me visual sensory overload. Indeed, it nearly swallowed Maggie whole, although she did lighten the load with her pixie crop and fuchsia-pink lip.

Too overworked?
