Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Marni Fragrance LaunchA trendy list turned out to support the first Marni fragrance at an exclusive party on Tuesday, presented by Consuelo Castiglioni, at Marni Edition in New York City. British TV presenter and model Alexa Chung even had a DJ set in store for all those Marni mavens, who dressed for the occasion with bold and brave exits from the designer that ranged in style from cool-girl (and cool-boy) to sassy schoolgirl.

Alexa Chung: Along with her party playlist, Alexa delivered a prepster, winter-casual look with her top-to-toe Marni ensemble. She wore a toggle coat over a green printed shirt and high-waisted skinny jeans along with a blocky pair of metallic, Pilgrim-like loafers. It shouldn’t all work, but somehow she rocks it in her own way.

Christina Ricci: The actress didn’t get the casual memo like Alexa, instead donning a flirty Marni outfit with her girly green skirt and embellished blouse. She paired it with a beige zipper bag and plain black sandals that looked, well, a bit cold.

Leigh Lezark and Geordon Nicol: The two DJs from The Misshapes hit some interesting fashion chords. Sporting a new blonde do, Leigh’s candy-apple-red Chanel Spring 2013 overcoat and white shirt dress got an extra shot of quirk with those knee socks and red flats. Geordon played her cool companion, mixing things up with his blue and green micro-prints, matched with a black beanie and patent black shoes.

Were any of these looks ‘scent’-sational for you?

Marni Flap bag

There’s another celebrity ‘IT’ bag which is popping up on the shoulders of many young starlets and that’s the Marni ‘Flap’ bag.

The bag, which hails from the brand’s Resort and Spring 2013 collection, is the chic, urban go-to bag to add an edge to celebrities’ off-duty looks.

Jessica Alba and Emma Roberts prefer the two-tone version with a studded flap, while Rashida Jones and Amanda Seyfried’s Marni ‘Flap’ bag of choice has a studded shoulder strap.

Both versions come in a selection of fresh, clean colours in fabrics varying from lambskin to French calf leather.

With or without studs, the bag embodies modern elegance.

Leslie Mann In Marni - 'This Is 40' Rome Photocall

Leslie Mann was all smiles during the photocall for her latest movie, ‘This Is 40’, held at the Adlon Hotel in Berlin, Germany this afternoon.

The actress, who usually favours a select group of designers, has been branching out lately.

On this occasion, she wore a Marni Resort 2013 head-to-toe look.

A casual brown-and-pink jacquard blouse was styled with a pink belted fitted skirt with a pleated hem.

I would’ve expected Leslie to style the look with matching pink pumps, but she selected brown leather ankle-strap pumps from the same collection.

Golden wavy tresses completed her event-appropriate, chic daytime look.

Lena Dunham In Marni & Allison Williams In Oscar de la Renta - The Today Show

Lena Dunham and Allison Williams made a guest appearance on NBC’s the ‘Today’ show yesterday morning, to promote the new season of ‘Girls’.

The co-stars appeared to have called ahead, as they both wore the colour of the moment: red.

Lena wore a Marni Fall 2012 wool crepe dress with puff sleeves which she styled with Rupert Sanderson ‘Irene’ black strappy suede sandals, recently worn several times by Jessica Chastain.

Allison’s donned an Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2013 red sleeveless dress with a draped detail on the neckline, which was presented as a checked dress when it took to the runway recently.

Her dress is gorgeous, but her coral floral pumps are divine.

Jamie Wolf earrings and glossy wavy tresses complete her look.

Here is a quick roundup of the menswear which took to the red carpet last night.

Richard Armitage: The actor may have taken a back seat to my first love Cate Blanchett; but he did look rather dashing on the red carpet attending the royal premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’, at the Odeon Leicester Square in London wearing a classic Ermenegildo Zegna black shawl collar tuxedo with a dickie bow-tie.

Ewan McGregor: Joining Naomi Watts on the red carpet for ‘The Impossible’ special screening at Museum of Art and Design in New York City yesterday evening, Ewan wore a sharp pin-stripe dark suit. The suit was styled with a blue cotton poplin shirt and black-and-grey brogues from the Marni Fall 2012 collection. He sure does love those stand-out brogues.

Eddie Redmayne: Sans sexy face and sporting his signature lean-to-the-left red carpet pose, the British actor attended the Museum Of Moving Images salute to Hugh Jackman at Cipriani Wall Street on Tuesday in New York City dressed in a Thom Browne Fall 2012 black tuxedo with a bow tie. This promo tour has been great for the handsome actor. Could he be your BDMOTY (Best Dressed Man Of The Year)?

You all pretty much hated Elle Fanning’s last red carpet look, so hopefully she managed to redeem herself when she attended The Variety Studio: Awards Edition event, held at a private residence in LA on Wednesday.

The young actress wore a simple Fall look, donning a burgundy Marni sweater from the Fall 2012 collection with a black A-line Creatures of the Wind skirt with a high waist and dainty bow accent from the Spring 2013 collection.

Keeping the styling super simple, the actress opted for Marni ankle-strap black wedges to complete her look.

Did she redeem herself?
