Rinko Kikuchi In Marios Schwab – ‘Pacific Rim’ Mexico City Premiere

Rinko Kikuchi In Marios Schwab - 'Pacific Rim' Mexico City Premiere

Rinko Kikuchi attended the ‘Pacific Rim’ Mexico City premiere held at Reforma 222 in Mexico yesterday evening.

I was delighted that the Asian actress opted for one of those difficult-to-wear pieces from the Marios Schwab Fall 2013 collection, which actresses have been avoiding thus far.

Delighted, but not surprised, as Rinko is something of a red carpet daredevil who never takes the easy route.

The long-sleeved eggplant satin gown with a nude sheer yoke and embellished nude skirt with a satin trim was styled with a Mawi amethyst-shard-and-large-crystal choker.

I love the addition of the choker, not only because it looks like part of the gown, but also because it covers the neckline, which would’ve given away the illusion.

Am I alone in wanting to see this up for BDOTW?

Met Gala 2013 Roundup

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.

Natalie Dormer In Marios Schwab – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Natalie Dormer In Marios Schwab - 2013 White House Correspondents' AssociationOur ‘Game of Thrones’ girl, Natalie Dormer, walked the red carpet with ‘Cosmopolitan’ editor-in-chief Joanna Coles at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton last night in Washington, D.C.

The British actress wore a Marios Schwab Fall 2011 gown that featured pearl-studded, geometric embellishment at the bodice.

Since she removed the runway’s waist-cinching, harness-inspired belt, the most interesting part of this look actually came to me in the gorgeous emerald Elahn bauble on her finger.

She accessorized further with a black and silver Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch and a simple pair of earring studs.

A nude lippie and half-up, half-down hair completed the look, although on this occasion, I wish she had worn her hair all up for a more polished, edgy effect.

Selena Gomez In Marios Schwab – London Show Rooms LA

Selena Gomez In Marios Schwab - London Show Rooms LA

Selena Gomez attended the London Show Rooms LA event at Thompson Hotel yesterday in Beverly Hills.

The ‘Spring Breakers’ actress wore a Marios Schwab Fall 2011 dress paired with basic black Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and a Lauren Merkin ‘Lucca’ oval shaped minaudière.

As far as LBDs go, this one knocks it out of the park for me. The white piping and buckle accents add visual appeal and are figure flattering, making it the perfect ‘go to’ dress for any event.

My only complaint is I would have liked to see either her clutch or manicure be a colour other than black. I don’t think a tiny bit of colour would have been too much. Yet, considering the young actress’s tendency to way over do red carpet looks, I should be thankful that she took the a more subtle approach this time around.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Selena Gomez In Reem Acra, Joseph Gordon-Levitt In Prada & Blake Lively In Marios Schwab

BDOTW Selena & Blake

Selena Gomez was your best dressed this week in Reem Acra. It would appear that you preferred her sleek red gown over her co-star Vanessa Hudgens’ choice – a Naeem Khan beaded-and-feathered creation.

My pick was Blake Lively. Mrs Reynolds looked sexy, yet still sweet enough for a Disney premiere of ‘The Croods’ last week, showing off those enviable pins in a Marios Schwab fresh off-the-runway dress as she made her first appearance on the red carpet in 2013.

For menswear, we both selected Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Prada. The young actor couldn’t look more handsome his navy-blue suit.
