2015 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs Red Carpet Roundup

VMAs

Here is a roundup from Sunday’s (August 30) 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Cara Delevingne: The model/actress was once again oozing easy elegance wearing a Saint Laurent star print fringed number.

Gigi Hadid: The model wore a saffron yellow Emilia Wickstead ‘Emma’ jacquard dress paired with matching hot pants. She certainly has the legs to rock this look, but I can’t get on board with the bouffant. It’s very 80s Cindy Crawford, but perhaps that’s what she was going for.

Serayah: I don’t quite get the purpose of this Herve Leger dress. It looks more like a beach cover up, which is even more apparent considering she looks like she’s wearing a bikini underneath.

14th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball

14th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball

A group of lovelies flocked to the 14th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, hosted on Saturday (June 6) at a private Mandeville Canyon Estate in Los Angeles, California.

Elizabeth Banks
: Looking every bit like a ray of sunshine, the actress donned a bright chartreuse Prada jacquard-embroidered frock with nude lace Jimmy Choo shoes and Kwiat earrings. The quirkier nature of Prada designs can be problematic on the red carpet, but Elizabeth pulls off the bold look with elegance and aplomb.

Leven Rambin
: I loved seeing Leven in this striking Marchesa semi-sheer gown with exploded paisley embroidery. The sleek updo and deep red lip added another layer of vibrancy to this fresh outing.

Sharon Stone
: While the two-piece ensemble itself wasn’t so flattering to Sharon’s beautiful figure, what was more bothersome was the strange collection of accessories that cluttered the look—from the pashmina shawl to the overly decorative earrings and sandals.

Rita Ora In Marchesa – 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Rita Ora In Marchesa - 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Rita Ora attended amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday (May 21) in Cap d’Antibes, France.

The British singer wore a sultry red strapless Marchesa Fall 2015 gown with asymmetric ruffled peplum and black sash styled with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

I really wanted to like this latest offering from Rita, but the dress was just too snug around the hips.

I’m so disappointed, because this look had a lot of potential.

Fan Bingbing In Marchesa – ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Mad Max : Fury Road" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Fan Bingbing made her second red carpet appearance during Cannes Film Festival for the ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ premiere this evening (May 14) in Cannes, France.

The actress wore an extremely beautiful Marchesa Spring 2015 dusty grey v-neck tulle gown made all the more heavenly with the billowing sleeves and delicate pastel multi-colour feathers and crystal bouquets.

Sadly, I couldn’t get on board with the crystal bouquet headpiece, which takes this look down an overstyled and almost comical/costumey path.

Eva Longoria In Marchesa – 2015 People En Espanol’s ’50 Most Beautiful’ Gala

Eva Longoria In Marchesa - People en Espagnol’s 50 Most Beautiful 2015 Gala

Following her horrendous look at the 2015 Upfront presentation, Eva Longoria did a 180 while attending the People En Espanol’s ’50 Most Beautiful’ Gala at the IAC Building on Monday (May 12) in New York City.

I love how chic her Marchesa Fall 2015 plume-effect lamé and crepe jumpsuit is; oozing just a hint of sexy appeal while putting forth plenty of sophistication and flair.

I’ll excuse the dull-beyond-belief pumps on account that she was able to turn around her previous misfortune so quickly, and because her red lips serve as a welcome distraction.

Is the love for this look shared or are you waiting for Eva to hit Cannes knowing that’s when she’s in her element?

Elizabeth Banks In Marchesa – ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ LA Premiere

Elizabeth Banks In Marchesa - 'Pitch Perfect 2' LA Premiere

Elizabeth Banks attended the ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ LA premiere held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Friday (May 8) in Los Angeles, California.

As the producer/director of this movie, Elizabeth’s red carpet style has shifted from glorious Couture gowns to chic separates and few jumpsuits, while still maintaining her magnetic appeal.

That was the case when she stepped out on the red carpet wearing this Marchesa Fall 2015 look featuring a fringed halter scarf and sleek black trousers.

This look means business without being boring or stale.

I think those who tag Elizabeth as being consistently over-dressed don’t give her enough credit.

Models @ The 2015 Met Gala

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

The models also had their moment at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), some strutting to the beat of the theme better than others.

Karen Elson: One of the most extravagantly attired models, Karen truly embraced the ‘costume’ in the Costume Institute Benefit Gala in her Dolce & Gabbana ballgown spectacle featuring an ornately embellished and gilded bodice with matching cuffs, and an explosion of red tulle. Her elaborate gold headpiece also gave Sarah Jessica Parker’s own topper a bit of crown competition. This was the Chinese princess moment of the night.
