Nicole Kidman In Marchesa – Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am Press Conference

Nicole Kidman In Marchesa - Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am Press Conference

Nicole Kidman attended a press conference ahead of the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am at Mission Hills Resort on Friday (October 24) in Haikou, China.

The actress wore a Marchesa Resort 2015 gold lace cocktail dress styled with gold strappy sandals.

Usually I am a fan of Nicole’s red carpet looks, but this one falls flat on this occasion.

The gold colour does nothing for her except make her appear washed out, and the hair comb-over sweeping fringe is ill-advised.

I just want to take this look and start over again with a frock in a more warming hue and a better hairstyle.

Elle Fanning In Marchesa – ‘Lowdown’ LA Premiere

Elle Fanning In Marchesa - 'Lowdown' LA Premiere

Elle Fanning attended the premiere of ‘Lowdown’ held at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday (October 23) in Hollywood, California.

The young brunette star wore one of the heroine pieces from Marchesa’s Spring 2015 collection with Forevermark Diamonds.

The nude tulle off-the-shoulder mermaid gown enriched with trickling floral embroidery, a draped bodice and blouson sleeves was the one I was dying to see on the red carpet.

Did it live up to my expectations?

Yes, I have to say.

This romantic modern-gypsy offering is very much Elle’s red carpet M.O.: pretty, delicate and oozing with plenty of charm and grace.

The expectation would’ve been that this gown would wash her out, but I believe the all-over embroidery and rosy glow prevent that.

Nikki Reed In Marchesa – Elle’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Nikki Reed In Marchesa - Elle’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Nikki Reed attended Elle’s 21st annual Women in Hollywood celebration at the Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (October 20) in Beverly Hills, California.

Unlike the rest of the attendees, Nikki opted for a gown from Marchesa’s Resort 2015 collection where others had opted for cocktail dresses.

I will take her being overdressed in this pale-grey strapless ruffled gown styled with Jimmy Choo metallic-silver sandals and a matching clutch over a bland dress any day.

She stood out and she looks good. Isn’t that the most important thing?

Anna Gunn In Marchesa – ‘Gracepoint’ LA Screening

Anna Gunn In Marchesa - 'Gracepoint' LA Screening

Anna Gunn attended the Film Independent Screening Series of ‘Gracepoint’ held at the Bing Theatre at LACMA on Tuesday (September 30) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Marchesa Spring 2015 off-white backless silk gazar jacket over a backless white plastron paired with a black skirt hand-painted with a bluebird detail.

She styled the look with a black Rauwolf clutch and Irene Neuwirth earrings.

I have struggled with this look for some time, preferring the back over the front.

Had this look been worn without the jacket, I think it would’ve worked for me.

Does this work for you?

Marchesa Spring 2015 Front Row

Marchesa Spring 2015 Front Row

Celebrities gathered to celebrate red carpet queens Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, who returned home to London to showcase their Marchesa Spring 2015 collection on the 10th anniversary of the brand.

Jena Malone: The ‘Hunger Games’ actress was perched in the front row wearing a distinctive Marchesa frock in a rich teal hue, deconstructed to create a gorgeous kilt dress rendered with 3D mohair thistle embroidery. I love her complementary eye makeup, which further emboldened the look along with her gold sparkling Louboutins.

Rita Ora: The singer ditched the red lip in favour of a deep-berry hue for her part-glamorous, part-I’m-not-sure-what’s-up-with-that-hairstyle look. She wore a Marchesa Spring 2011 blush-pink draped chiffon one-shoulder jumpsuit with black tassels on the train. The hair is too harsh for the look, but you have to – on some level – admire her for keeping things varied and interesting. She was asked by a reporter to name her favourite Marchesa red carpet look; having worn Marchesa four times previously to the Elle Style Awards, the BBC Radio One Teen Awards, the 2013 Glamour Woman of the Year Awards, and the 2012 EMAs, she said that the red embroidery and taffeta gown from the EMAs was her favourite look. When asked by the journalist where she had worn the look, Rita appeared to go blank and say “Ummm…”, at which point I interjected by saying “the MTV Awards”, to which she looked up at me with some confusion, then turned to the journalist and replied “Yeah, the EMAs”.

Katharine McPhee In Marchesa & Cynthia Rowley – Late Show with David Letterman & Extra

Katharine McPhee In Marchesa & Cynthia Rowley - Late Show with David Letterman & Extra

Katharine McPhee was out and about on Wednesday (September 10) in New York City promoting her new show, ‘Scorpion’.

‘Late Show with David Letterman': Dressed to impress, the actress looked divine wearing a Marchesa floral Chantilly lace cocktail frock with a watercolour-printed tulle overlay and draped neckline. I love how her pink and black toecap Casadei pumps subtly complement the look; however, I wish the hair was pulled back here.

‘Extra': Katharine opted for a look with a more youthful vibe for her guest appearance on ‘Extra’. Again the shoes played a vital part in this look, with her green pumps complementing the cabochon stones on her Cynthia Rowley Fall 2014 shell top and matching flounce skirt. The only thing missing here perhaps was an orange clutch, because the red cabochon stones matched her lip colour.

While Katharine looked great on both occasions, the first is my favourite for its flirty feminine appeal. Perhaps the second look should’ve been saved for Kiernan Shipka.
