Best Dressed Of The Week – Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lela Rose & Nicole Kidman In Valentino Couture

BDOTW 9 feb

While you voted for the subtle elegance of the gorgeous Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Lela Rose, I was swept away by the statuesque beauty that is Nicole Kidman, who ruled the Berlin Film Festival red carpet in Valentino Couture.

When it came to the fellas, it was Eddie Redmayne in Ralph Lauren for you, while I picked Benedict Cumberbatch for his super sharp classic offering.

I was tempted to go for Eddie, but I feel like the very reason I fell in love with his style – love for colour and different types of fabrications – has given way to a sea of black and blue this awards season.

AnnaSophia Robb In Alice McCall & Lauren Conrad In Lela Rose – John Frieda Hair Care Beach Blonde Collection Party

AnnaSophia Robb In Alice McCall & Lauren Conrad In Lela Rose - John Frieda Hair Care Beach Blonde Collection Party

John Frieda Hair Care hosted a party to celebrate the Beach Blonde Collection launch with a party held at the Garage on Thursday (February 5) in New York City with two gorgeous blondes in attendance.

AnnaSophia Robb: We know the ‘Carrie Diaries’ actress for her love of dainty dresses, but she flipped the switch on this occasion, wearing an Alice McCall black (ultra-) short playsuit with a modern contoured appearance. My heart skipped several beats upon feasting my eyes on her Dee Keller blue suede shoes and Paula Cademartori clutch with its signature flamboyant colours. This is stepping outside your comfort zone done right.

Lauren Conrad: The former reality star may have been wearing a navy Lela Rose Spring 2015 fit-and-flare dress, but the look is very beige. Styled with nude Express ‘Runway’ sandals, Lauren serves up no surprises with this look.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lela Rose – 6th Annual AAFCA Awards

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Lela Rose - 6th Annual AAFCA Awards

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the 6th Annual AAFCA Awards at the Taglyan Cultural Complex on Wednesday (February 4) in Hollywood, California.

The British actress opted for maximum impact with minimal effort, wearing a Lela Rose Resort 2015 frock in a volcanic lava-red hue tamed with a blush rise-and-fall hemline.

Oozing grace, I can imagine her the floaty sway due to the airy silhouette, blessing her every step as she glided down the red carpet. Gugu never fails to charm me.

Opting for an unexpected bubblegum pink lip when red might have been the more obvious choice, the look was completed with some standard accessorizing with black pumps and a matching clutch.

Jessica Chastain In Lela Rose & Michael Kors – 2015 AFI Awards & 2015 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch

Jessica Chastain In Lela Rose & Michael Kors - 2015 AFI Awards & 2015 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch

Jessica Chastain attended two events this weekend starting with the 2015 AFI Awards held at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on Friday (January 9) in Beverly Hills and the 2015 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch at BOA Steakhouse on Saturday (January 10) in West Hollywood, California.

2015 AFI Awards: Her first look was an exquisitely tailored Lela Rose Spring 2015 shimmering tweed dress featuring a slim bodice, which gave way to an elegant tulip skirt. Simple and sophisticated, I would’ve loved this look more had it not been for the Jimmy Choo black pumps weighing down the look.

2015 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch: On this occasion her black pumps worked perfectly well with this more playful black and optic white printed Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2015 dress decked out with a patent Peter Pan collar.

For the overall styling the second look works best for me. What say you?

Sophia Bush In Lela Rose – ‘Girls’ Season Four Premiere

Sophia Bush In Lela Rose - 'Girls' Season Four Premiere

Sophia Bush attended the season four premiere of ‘Girls’ held at the American Museum of Natural History on Monday (January 5) in New York City.

The ‘Chicago PD’ actress had many moments of experimentation last year, but here we see her back to her sweet best wearing a Lela Rose Spring 2015 plunging frock.

Balancing out sensuality and a girlish flare, her metallic space-dyed full-skirt dress was amped up with a pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Bille Et Boule’ PVC pumps crafted from pink suede and tomato-red patent leather with gold embellishments and a magenta satin bow adding a delightful flourish.

I love the complementary colours of the pumps and how they tone done some of the saccharine nature of the look.

Do the pumps work for you or did they overcook the look?
