Hailee Steinfeld In Mary Katrantzou – 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Hailee Steinfeld In Mary Katrantzou - 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Hailee Steinfeld attended the 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party on Friday (September 26) in Los Angeles, California.

The young starlet took a spin in a Mary Katrantzou Fall 2014 midnight-blue dress with crystal and beaded embellishment, which she paired with Bionda Castana ‘Karlie’ black booties.

Devoid of the designer’s more recognizable, dynamic digital prints, the frock did have some fun with its robotic-like figures at the neckline and the voluminous, pleated party skirt.

Never afraid to flaunt quirkier fashion selections, Hailee instead veered in a more girly direction, embracing the youthful and fun spirit of the frock with her long waves.

While the more mannish footwear may have been worn in an effort to tame the sugary silhouette, they were a rather heavy, blocky finish.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou & Emma Watson In Christian Dior

Best Dressed Of The Week - Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou & Emma Watson In Christian Dior

This week was very strong fashion-wise, so I am not surprised that there was a deadlock.

You couldn’t decide between Sarah Jessica Parker and Emma Watson.

Sarah for her unique, modern take on style at the New York Ballet with her embroidered Mary Katrantzou gown; and Emma who continues to leave us in awe, presenting an event-appropriate, sophisticated, chic look in Christian Dior.

I went for Sarah for the reason above and for not over-accessorizing.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou – New York City Ballet 2014 Fall Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou - New York City Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the New York City Ballet 2014 Fall Gala held at the Lincoln Center on Tuesday (September 23).

The actress wore a dramatic maxi-style Mary Katrantzou Fall 2014 long-sleeved dress richly embroidered, with the contrasting colour panels ensuring an elegant and fluid silhouette.

‎While a big puffy ballgown of the Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen or Herrera variety would’ve been expected, SJP served up this modern work of art.

In my mind I had pictured this on some statuesque beauty like Erin O’Connor; however, the petite actress more than holds her own in this dress, which would’ve overwhelmed most‎.

We all know SJP loves to – at times – over accessorize, but her simply styling was on point on this occasion, especially her decision to sweep her hair back which was accented with a black ribbon.

Despite my excitement about this look, methinks that some might deem this to be not befitting of a ballet gala.

Which side of the fence are you?

Yay or nay?

Kerry Washington In Mary Katrantzou – #TGIT Premiere Event

Kerry Washington In Mary Katrantzou - #TGIT Premiere Event

Kerry Washington attended the #TGIT Premiere Event hosted by Twitter at the Palihouse Holloway on Saturday (September 20) in West Hollywood, California.

Celebs love Mary Katrantzou for her lively prints; however, the pattern connoisseur opted to mute the print on this occasion in subtle shades of blue, white and grey.

The length, shorter than usual for Kerry, showcases her toned legs, with the fit-and-flare style giving her a figure-flattering silhouette without appearing too twee.

White SJP Collection pumps, a Kotur clutch and Bulgari earrings completed her look.

Amanda Seyfried In Mary Katrantzou - 'Tusk' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Amanda Seyfried attended the premiere of the film ‘Tusk’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on September 6 in Toronto, Canada.

The actress wore a sleeveless, purple letter-embossed dress from the Mary Katrantzou Resort 2015 collection.

She paired the dress with purple, pink and silver peep-toe Jimmy Choo ‘Tali’ sandals and green Dana Rebecca Designs earrings.

You may recognize these fabulous shoes from the premiere Amanda attended earlier this same day, and when you have such a busy schedule, I say bravo for making your costume change easy. Plus, who wouldn’t want to wear those phenomenal shoes more than once?

Her long, loose blonde hair, matte pink lips and bronzed eyeshadow complete the easy, breezy look.
