Kristen Wiig In Marchesa – Centerpiece Gala Presentation of ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’

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 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 In Marchesa – 2013 Emmy Awards

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.

Kerry Washington In Marchesa – 2013 Emmy Awards

Kerry Washington In Marchesa - 2013 Emmy Awards

Kerry Washington continued to show off her red-carpet best at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards tonight at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Marchesa’s romantic Spring 2014 collection was just begging for a red carpet, and the ‘Scandal’ actress complied by wearing one of designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman’s frothy, angelic confections.

The creamy-blush gown may have been bordering on over-the-top territory, what with its ribbon-like bodice, a flurry of floral appliques, shimmery beaded embellishment and that frothy long tulle train.

But Kerry managed to make it work, completing the effect with a wavy ‘do, a mauve lip, and a pearlized Edie Parker ‘Jean’ box clutch, all accented by Fred Leighton jewels.

NYFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List Part III

NYFW Spring 2014 Red Carpet Wish List

New York Fashion Week came to a close yesterday evening, so here is my final roundup of looks I wish to see on the red carpet.

Calvin Klein: We all know Rooney Mara is going to pick one of the black looks from this collection, so I hope it is this one with its unique halter detail, contrasting fabrics and interesting fringe detailing.

J. Mendel: I would love to see this gown on someone with Mila Kunis’ dark colouring. The coral lace gown would look gorgeous against her skin tone and naturally smouldering eyes.

Naomie Harris In Marchesa – ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Naomie Harris In Marchesa - 'Mandela  Long Walk To Freedom' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Naomie Harris walked the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of her film ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’.

For the occasion, the star wore a Marchesa Resort 2014 dress and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.

Naomie looks absolutely gorgeous in this lovely gown, and the only thing that is keeping me from offering it as a BDOTW is the length. If she had hemmed this to the runway length, it would be perfection.

And I’d be remiss not to mention how the well the bodice of this dress accent Naomie’s perfectly toned arms.

I’m not a huge fan of the shoe pairing–they just seem too heavy for the delicate dress–but her classic chignon and red lipstick are flawless.

Naomi Watts In Marchesa – ‘Diana’ Paris Premiere

Naomi Watts In Marchesa - 'Diana' Paris Premiere

Naomi Watts floated down the red carpet at the ‘Diana’ Paris premiere at the Cinema UGS Normandie in France on Friday evening.

The actress followed the white theme of her London premiere look with a romantic Marchesa Spring 2013 frock. However, this confection, while perhaps a bit unexpected, brought far more fantasy and allure.

The slight trapeze silhouette, in combination with the sheer lace detail and wispy chiffon-like layers, simultaneously had a sweet yet style-forward effect. The prettiness was amplified with her loosely swept-back updo and petal-pink lip.

The flash of that dark clutch was a fair reminder that Naomi’s embellished nude sandals were a thankful reprieve from black pumps, which would have wilted this delicate dress.
