Ali Larter In Marchesa – ‘Kitchen Revelry’ Cookbook Release Party

Ali Larter In Marchesa - 'Kitchen Revelry' Cookbook Release Party

Ali Larter celebrated the release of her new cookbook ‘Kitchen Revelry’ with Perrier-Jouet at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, California on Tuesday evening.

The actress wore a pretty Marchesa Resort 2014 shortened above-the-knee frock with a sweetheart neckline and asymmetrical peplum detail in a summery watercolour print.

She styled her dress with onyx-and-gold flower earrings, a Fendi grey clutch and violet pumps which I adore. Black would’ve been such an easy choice here.

Effortless wavy tresses and makeup in a soft colour palette completed her celebratory chic look.

Sarah Hyland In Marchesa – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Sarah Hyland In Marchesa - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

‘Vampire Academy’ starlet Sarah Hyland took a dramatic turn on the red carpet, joining co-star Zoey Deutch at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Sarah sent some mixed messages in her Marchesa Spring 2013 red-and-gold tulle high-low gown—I was picking up an extravagant India-inspired flavour, some medieval princess edge and a dash of Wonder Woman.

Strappy black Casadei sandals seemed out of place when they could have so easily been gold to go with that glittery metallic Marchesa clutch.

Renaissance super-girl aside, I found this look to be overwhelming for the young actress. Short of ripping off those heavy layers, she could’ve had so much more lighthearted fun at MTV’s big night.

‘The Butler’ New York Premiere Red Carpet Round Up

The Butler Premiere

Here is a roundup of the rest of the guests who attended ‘The Butler’ New York premiere.

Anna Wintour: The American Vogue editor-in-chief opted for an off-the-shoulder custom-made Dior fitted dress with all her signatures, with the addition of a rarely sighted clutch.

Andre Leon Talley: Dressed in a gold cape, he almost overshadows Anna.

Jesse Williams: The actor looked very handsome in a classic black suit with satin lapels styled with a white dress shirt and a standout plum-and-white bow tie. Those blue eyes are so dreamy.

‘The Bling Ring’ New York Screening

The Bling Ring New York Screening 1

Louis Vuitton hosted the New York screening of ‘The Bling Ring’ in New York City on Tuesday evening at the Paris Theatre.

After praising the stars’ style yesterday, I was disappointed that a few were below par for their New York outing.

Emma Watson: I was crestfallen when I saw this look. While the v-neck low-back frock featuring a slate silk bodice and hem might be flirty or understandable to some, I found the look very sombre and not in keeping with the Emma I know and love. Not even the Ferragamo gold clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Pivichic’ pvc black-striped pumps could lift this look for me. She completed the look with a Monique Péan ring that showed off her pretty lilac manicure, a dark-crimson lip colour and a side-parted ponytail.

Katie Chang: While I love the deep-emerald hue of her 3.1 Phillip Lim dress, it looks like someone just threw fabric over her and she accented it with a leather waistband. I’m only loving the Jimmy Choo ‘Freya’ booties here.

Sofia Coppola: The director did wearing Louis Vuitton selecting an ivory frock with a sequined front panel and delicate tiered skirt which she styled with matching sandals. Only Sofia can make what would appear to some as am embellished t-shirt dress, look so chic. Not one to usually make too much of a fuss when it comes to makeup, she applied a watermelon-coloured lip shade on this occasion.

Taissa Farmiga: The young actress maintains her 100% record, wearing a pretty Marchesa asymmetrical black lace frock which is very much in keeping with her girlie-girl red carpet style. A black Marchesa clutch with a quartz clasp and Ferragamo peep-toes completed her look.

Claire Julien in Emilio Pucci - The Bling Ring New York Screening

Claire Julien: The blonde beauty continues her love affair with Pucci, wearing a nude chiffon embroidered halterneck dress with a long white tulle overdress accented with intricate button detailing from their Spring 2013 collection. It’s a more daring look in comparison to her co-stars; however, I wish the nude lining had been hemmed to be the same length as the white overlay. Claire styled her look with the same Emilio Pucci cross-strap wedges presented with her dress on the runway, along with opulent drop earrings, an Edie Parker clutch and a braided updo.

2013 Critics’ Choice Television Awards Round Up 1

Here is a roundup of the rest of the attendees at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Television Awards, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Monday.

Miranda Cosgrove: Embracing the summer season, the actress opted for a girlie Lela Rose lilac frock with perforations and a pleated skirt, which she styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Tali’ heels and a light-pink lip colour.

Sarah Paulson: The actress, who took home the Best Supporting Actress in a Movie or Mini-Series for ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’, wore a pretty Carolina Herrera nude lace-accented dress with a delightful pop of colour via her fuchsia-pink Casadei pumps.

Maria Menounos: The TV presenter always dresses like an A-list actress and this stunning teal Notte by Marchesa gown is no exception. A half-up, half-down bouffant and Dana Rebecca Designs jewels completed her gorgeous look.

Rita Ora In Marchesa – Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Rita Ora In Marchesa - Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013

Earlier this week I was perplexed by Rita Ora’s Alexandre Vauthier look, today at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, held at Berkeley Square Gardens in London, I have to give her a stand ovation.

The British singer, with the most inconsistent style, looked stunning wearing a Marchesa Spring 2013 gown.

Her pale-grey – typically dramatic and romantic – Marchesa gown with silver embroidery and tulle layers was styled with Chopard jewels.

I think many of you hit the nail on the head when you attributed her signature red lippie as the reason why many of her looks fail. It’s just too harsh at times.

On this occasion she opted for a softer nude lip colour, however, she did go for a heavy smoky eye.

Much improved or will you just never get on board with Rita’s style?
