Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Pace Wu BDOTW

Pace Wu was undoubtedly the best dressed of last week, but we picked two different looks.

You fell in love with her romantic Valentino lace gown, while her Giambattista Valli ensemble with its impeccable styling caught my eye.

Despite my love for three-piece suits, I picked Adrien Brody in Margiela over Leonardo DiCaprio in Tom Ford for my best dressed male. A choice which you also shared.

Menswear round up

Jude Law: In mid-February at the ‘Side Effects’ Berlin photocall, Jude wore a red v-neck shirt under his Prada double-breasted suit. At the film’s Paris premiere at UGC Cine Cite des Halles on Thursday, he attempted, and failed at, a similar look; the star of the film arrived in a Prada navy double-breasted suit over a charcoal v-neck shirt. The jacket looked nice and the v-neck worked, but his baggy pants ruined it all.

Leonardo DiCaprio: At the Seoul, South Korea premiere of ‘Django Unchained’ on Thursday, Leo sported a Tom Ford navy three-piece suit with wide peak lapels and a matching navy tie. This look had everything going for it, except proper tailoring. Not only did his jacket need to be nipped in at the sides to give him more of a V shape, his pants were rather baggy. So close, but yet so far.

Adrien Brody: In the most dapper look of the week, Adrien was in attendance for Carine Roitfeld’s ‘CR Fashion Book Issue 2′ cocktail party as part of Paris Fashion Week at Hotel Shangri-La on Tuesday. The actor arrived wearing a well-tailored Margiela black shawl-lapel suit along with a white shirt and black ankle boots, both of which were also Margiela. He styled his look nicely with a black bow tie and a black-faced watch.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Maison Martin Margiela Couture - amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion WeekSarah Jessica Parker paraded out a bold style statement at the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2013 Fashion Week, hosted at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Wednesday evening.

The actress went to the Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2013 ‘Artisanal’ Couture runway for inspiration, where she found it in a fiery fuchsia number wrapped up in an extra-long black-and-white sash.

The colour of this strapless column gown with its vivid silk velvet, coaxed into a herringbone pattern, was exhilarating.

But the dress did completely overwhelm SJP’s petite frame, especially with the puddle of fabric that surrounded her every pose.

With a smokey eye, nude lip and her hair in loose waves, she tossed the model’s mask to the curb. After all, the look was high-concept enough without such tribal trappings.

The ‘Artisanal’ collection mixes playful invention and innovative upcycling with a sense of romance and wit. But the exits can still be challenging for the red carpet.

Did you like SJP’s look or should she have left it on the runway?

Gwai Lun-Mei had changed out of her Alexander McQueen gown at the Golden Horse Awards when she showed off her trophy in the press room.

On this occasion, she wore a black Maison Martin Margiela with H&M dress.

I can’t say I’m crazy about this fusion of two dress, with the one side longer than the other and the one strappy shoulder, but Lun-Mei makes this complicated look work.

This could be down to the fact that she didn’t try too hard, opting just to add simple pumps and a tie belt.

Lana Del Rey, the face of the H&M Autumn/Winter campaign, performed at a private concert in Berlin for a small crowd of German press at the H&M Berlin showroom on Sunday night.

The singer, who must have a closet stocked full of H&M pieces, wore a look from the Maison Martin Margiela with H&M collection.

Lana has been wearing a lot of black and navy lately, so I’m delighted to see her wearing this festive red dress with matching pumps.

The red crepe dress, with a silk lining and asymmetrical hemline, was styled with a black waistband to give the look a more defined silhouette.

I much prefer Lana’s presentation. As she styled it I would buy this piece in a heartbeat.

Gold cuffs on both wrists, dark red lips and glossy waves replace her signature beehive do.
