Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Canon's Project Imaginat10n Film Festival

Canon’s Project Imaginat10n Film Festival at Alice Tully Hall in New York City was something of a Marchesa fest yesterday evening.

Georgina Chapman: Led by the designer herself, Georgina wore a black Fall 2013 fitted column-style Marchesa tulle cocktail dress with all-over floral embroidery and draped off-shoulder sleeves styled with signature accessories: Christian Louboutin pumps and a Marchesa quartz-clasp clutch. A half-up half-down hairdo perfected this romantic look.

Eva Longoria: As always, I gave a big sigh before writing out a critique for Eva Longoria. What she gives via her lush Marchesa raspberry strapless cocktail dress with 3D silk ribbon roses and bugle-bead twine embroidery along the neckline, she takes away with the oversized floral-print Marchesa envelope clutch.

Dree Hemingway: The model had no such issue, looking heavenly wearing a pale-blue slip dress with asymmetrical organza ruffles with a pale-blue organza collared tee shirt overlay. Opting to go matchy-matchy with the Marchesa clutch and glitter sandals, she added a vampy rouge lip colour to her stunning look.

Abigail Spencer: Rounding out a quartet of dames in Marchesa cocktail dresses, the ‘Suits’ actress wore a red strapless fitted frock with tonal French-knot and chenille threadwork embroidery, which she also styled with a Marchesa clutch, and white pumps to ensure the trend doesn’t die.

I do love each of the looks; it’s such a shame Eva’s styling let the side down, but 3 out of 4 ain’t bad.

Diane Kruger In Marchesa - Vogue CFDA Fashion Fund Dinner

Following the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event during the day, Diane Kruger also attended the dinner party held at Bouchon in Beverly Hills, California in the evening.

She slung a white blazer over her metallic-gold lace Marchesa Spring 2014 cocktail dress, which featured multicoloured floral threadwork embroidery and a ballet-pink underlay.

There were mixed feelings on her pastel-hued accessories for the day event, but for her after-dark look she wore her favourite Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and a complementary gold Smythson clutch.

Which look do you prefer? Day or night?

Elle 1

Many more fashionable femmes joined the crush of glamour gals at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration, hosted yesterday night at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California.

Melissa McCarthy: One of ELLE’s November cover girls, Melissa took a trendsetting approach in a Calvin Klein ensemble, featuring a black leather-look top and pants and a white bolero jacket, to which she paired a Rauwolf ombre-effect clutch, studded sandals and a few gold cocktail rings. A pompadour-inspired ‘do topped off her edgier entrance.

Emilia Clarke: The ‘Game of Thrones’ starlet was polished in a sheer effect, nude Calvin Klein Spring 2013 frock, cinched in with a black belt. Nude sandals with an embellished metallic heel added an intriguing, style-forward note, while her wispy updo and soft rose-toned makeup were just plain pretty.

Gia Coppola: Also in Calvin Klein, the director-screenwriter skipped a dress in favour of separates including a wrap-front top and cropped black pants, adding some shine via gold sandals and a bit of colour via a berry lip lacquer.

Kristen Wiig In Marchesa - Centerpiece Gala Presentation of 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty'

Kristen Wiig attended the Centerpiece Gala Presentation of ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ during the 51st New York Film Festival held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City on Saturday evening.

The actress wore a Marchesa Spring 2014 dress with a sheer lace-embroidered top and polka-dot layered skirt.

I’m not a fan of the dress to begin with, and to add to that I don’t think this is the right dress for Kristen; it’s too fussy and princess-like for her laidback, sleek style. She’s weighed down by all that tulle.

This would’ve looked better on Ariel Winter or Marchesa fan Sarah Hyland.

Grey suede Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps, Fred Leighton jewels, an updo with face-framing tendrils and a pink lip colour completed her look.

Are you disliking this as much as I do?

Malin Akerman In Marchesa - 2013 Emmy Awards

Malin Akerman walked down the aisle—ahem, the red carpet—at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California.

The actress was beautiful in a frothy Marchesa Resort 2014 pale-blue confection, which pooled behind her in a slight train. Even though the strapless, tulle gown wasn’t wedding white, I was still picking up a strong bridal vibe.

No necklace, but a few well-placed jewels, including a bracelet, rings and pendant earrings, along with a Marchesa box clutch accessorized the look.

Malin’s teased updo and bronzed complexion topped off the romantic statement.

Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan took a statuesque turn on the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards.

The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star wore a Marchesa Resort 2014 gown, with Jay Carlile & Company jewelry and a Marchesa clutch.

While I think this deep purple hue is a lovely contrast with Alyson’s auburn hair, I can’t help but wish she had taken a risk and opted for the floral runway version of the striking gown.

A deep side part and loose waves are the perfect accent to the elegant look.
