Samantha Barks In Marios Schwab – Moynat London Boutique

Samantha Barks In Marios Schwab - Moynat London Boutique

Samantha Barks attended the Moynat London boutique opening on Wednesday (March 12) in London.

While clutching one of the brand’s leather bags, the actress wore a Marios Schwab Spring 2014 look.

Her radiant red short-sleeved fitted dress has many modern elements, such as the cut-out shoulders and staple detailing, yet the elegant styling counters with conservative accessories including Sophia Webster ‘Lyla’ patent leather pumps.

The look was completed with a simple ponytail and glossy lips.

Right dress, wrong accessories, or do you like the sexy/chic mix?

Natalie Dormer In Marios Schwab – 2014 SAG Awards

Natalie Dormer In Marios Schwab - 2014 SAG Awards

Natalie Dormer certainly brought her own shock-and-awe factor to the red carpet of the 2014 SAG Awards on Saturday (January 18) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress showed off a drastic new, half-shaven ’do, complete with a French braid in the back.

Although her boundaries-pushing, blonde hair was undoubtedly front and centre, she made sure her style followed suit in an edgy look from Marios Schwab’s Spring 2014 collection.

The contoured white gown was punctuated by black, cage-like netting that wrapped around her arms and back.

Keeping the rest of her styling on more minimal terms, she accessorized with a simple black clutch and sandals, along with a nude, barely-there makeup look.

That said, an ear cuff was a near requirement here, what with that newly exposed left side.

Florence Welch In Marios Schwab – LOVE Magazine and Neil Barrett Christmas Party

Florence Welch In Marios Schwab - Love Magazine's Christmas Party

Florence Welch was spotted leaving Love Magazine’s Christmas Party held at the Lady Ottoline public house in London on Tuesday evening (December 17).

The flame-haired singer wore a black camisole with her Marios Schwab Spring 2014 printed cape-like top featuring a jewelled neckline and flowing train, which I can only imagine was the selling point of this look for Florence.

Some might take issue with the sheerness of the trouser, which featured a beaded strip down both sides, but for me the issue is that I wish the trousers appeared black and not so nude.

Florence completed her look with black pumps and a Smythson silver envelope clutch.

Jodie Kidd In Marios Schwab – British Fashion Awards 2013

Jodie Kidd In Marios Schwab - British Fashion Awards 2013

Jodie Kidd joined the glam group at the 2013 British Fashion Awards, hosted Monday evening at the London Coliseum in England.

The model had a bit of a Renaissance moment in a column gown by Marios Schwab, featuring deep eggplant embroidery in a lacey pattern from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

I think it was the long, split sleeves that contributed most to the costume quality—that, and the off-the-shoulder, sheer nude illusion neckline that was topped off by a choker-necklace-inspired embroidered accent.

She finished the look by mixing metals, carrying a small, bronze box Kotur clutch and wearing silvery sandals.

Long, centre-parted locks didn’t seem appropriate, but at least they distracted a bit from that non-illusory neckline.

2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night Red Carpet Roundup

2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night

Alongside Fan Bingbing, Li Bingbing and Shu Qi, there were many other stars who attended the 2013 Bazaar Stars Charity Night held at China World Summit Wing in Beijing, China yesterday evening.

You weren’t too enamored with the aforementioned starlets, so how do this lot fare?

Bai Baihe: The Chinese actress kept things very simple wearing a red silk satin Valentino Fall 2013 long sleeved portrait neckline gown styled with a clear Valentino clutch and – what appears to be –  no makeup. If I was to put one person from this event through to BDOTW, she would be my pick.

Gao Yuanyuan: Opting for a more futuristic look, the Chinese actress wore a Burberry Prorsum LBD with striking geometric metal straps from the Fall 2013 collection.  She styled her frock with a Bulgari clutch – which was perfectly in tune with the vibe of her dress – and simple black pumps.

Sui He: The Chinese model looked very beautiful and statuesque wearing a Marios Schwab Fall 2013 dark-green velvet gown with a gold accent at the empire-waist. The gown appears to be off-the-shoulder, however, it features an illusion yoke only noticeable by the neckline. While I am not a fan of how she accessorized the look, I do love the gown, and both her hair and makeup.
