Christina Hendricks In Marchesa – 2014 Emmy Awards

Christina Hendricks In Marchesa - 2014 Emmy Awards

Christina Hendricks made a traffic-stopping entrance at the 2014 Emmy Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

Echoing the colour of the red carpet, the ‘Mad Men’ actress slinked out a fiery crimson Marchesa Fall 2013 satin one-shoulder gown.

Opulence was this dress’s middle name with gold leaf filigree embroidery that likewise delivered a sense of romantic 18th century drama. It’s also what took the look to near costume-level proportions.

She kept the Midas moment alive and well with her metallic Lee Savage ‘Space’ clutch along with golden Neil Lane chandelier earrings and accompanying rows of bangles outfitting each wrist.

Factor in her own flame-red waves and ruby lip, and the effect was all a bit overly elaborate for my liking, and the excessive draping didn’t flatter her figure as well as I would have preferred.

Do you agree?

Heidi Klum In Marchesa – ‘America’s Got Talent’ Season 9 Post-Show Red Carpet Event

Heidi Klum In Marchesa - 'America's Got Talent' Season 9 Post-Show Red Carpet Event 2

Heidi Klum attended the ‘America’s Got Talent’ Season 9 post-show red carpet event held at Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday (July 30) in New York City.

Known to favour Versace and Marchesa. This time she went for the latter, donning a beautiful ivory lace Marchesa slip dress styled once again with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including a white diamond double pear shape necklace and a white and black diamond hand piece, and white nail polish.

In total contrast to her frock, she opted for a pair of Christian Louboutin black, white and blue ‘Pina Spike’ calf hair peep-toes with spiked heel to spice up her look.

You weren’t keen on her previous look; is this a step in the right direction? Do the shoes kill the look?

Lizzy Caplan In Marchesa – CBS, CW And Showtime Party

Lizzy Caplan In Marchesa - CBS, CW And Showtime Party

Lizzy Caplan was back on the red carpet for the 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour – CBS, CW And Showtime Party held at the Pacific Design Center on Thursday (July 17) in West Hollywood, California.

On this occasion the actress wore a Marchesa Fall 2014 strapless dress featuring a crescent-shaped neckline and copper embroidery throughout.

I love how she styled the look with rose-gold accessories including Erickson Beamon jewelry to complement the threadwork on her dress; however, even though her Sophia Webster ‘Lacey’ strappy sandals mimic the runway styling, a simpler style of sandal – or keeping the sandals and shortening the frock – would’ve worked better for me as I feel the dress length and sandals are at odds.

Sophia Bush In Marchesa – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Sophia Bush In Marchesa - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Sophia Bush attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City showcasing a new blonde ‘do.

The actress wore a stunning Marchesa cream long-sleeved laser-cut-out dress enhanced with crystal embroidery from the Fall 2014 collection.

Her dress is amazing but it’s the styling which really elevates the look. Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals complement the look but it’s the stunning Dannijo necklace and ice-blue Rauwolf clutch, plus the pops of red, which leave me breathless.

A wavy faux bob and luscious red lips completed her look.

This was one of my faves on the night.

Uma Thurman In Marchesa – ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ Cannes Film Festival Screening & Closing Ceremony

Uma Thurman In Marchesa -  'A Fistful of Dollars' Cannes Film Festival Screening & Closing Ceremony

Uma Thurman attended the Closing Ceremony and ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ screening during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 24) in Cannes, France.

At first I thought she was wearing Givenchy Couture as her white satin gown featuring Japanese crane embroidery is similar to pieces we’ve seen in the Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture collection.

As dramatic as the embroidery is, this fails to excite, especially when compared to her Atelier Versace from the night before.

Chopard jewels completed her look.

Naomi Watts In Marchesa – Charles Finch Filmmakers Dinner

Naomi Watts In Marchesa - Charles Finch Filmmakers DinnerBefore stunning on the red carpet at the ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ premiere during Cannes Film Festival, Naomi Watts was earlier at the annual Charles Finch Filmmakers Dinner at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Friday (May 16).

As at the premiere, the actress was again lovely in a romantic Marchesa creation, this one from the Fall 2014 collection.

Perhaps it’s because I still have visions of Poppy Delevingne’s wedding gown in my head, but when I saw Naomi’s lacy and ruffled white dress, I immediately thought bridal—at least from the waist up.

The black accessories, including a metallic-accented clutch and ankle-strap sandals, help counteract that notion.
