Lupita Nyong’o In Mary Katrantzou – DuJour Magazine Cover Party

Lupita Nyong'o In Mary Katrantzou - DuJour Magazine Cover Party

DuJour Magazine hosted a party to celebrate their ‘Great Performances Issue’, for which girl of the moment Lupita Nyong’o is the cover star.

The Kenyan-born actress took to the red carpet as the guest of honour at the new Herringbone restaurant at the Mondrian LA on Saturday (January 11) in Beverly Hills, California.

She looked delightful, as always, wearing a Mary Katrantzou ‘Babelona’ dress from the Resort 2014 collection, detailed with an immaculately placed dreamscape print in a pretty pastel-blue hue.

As if the print wasn’t enough to grab your attention, she added a vibrant pair of Paul Andrew violet pumps, with a metallic-blue-and-purple Sophia Webster polka-dot clutch and jewels courtesy of Jamie Wolf and Dana Rebecca Designs completing her look.

The shoes are a tad too heavy for me, do they work for you?

Han Dantong In Mary Katrantzou – 2nd Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards

Han Dantong In Mary Katrantzou - 2nd Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards

Han Dantong attended the 2nd Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards at Pudong Shangri-la on January 6, 2014 in Shanghai, China alongside Lindsay Lohan and Angelababy.

You may remember that Rebecca Ferguson was the first to wear this Mary Katrantzou Resort 2014 ‘Trinkolo’ dress which demonstrates the designer’s mastery of colour, print and silhouette, but I am delighted at this re-run as the dress is better suited to the Asian actress.

I love the juxtaposition of fanciful flowers and an architectural greenhouse design with a playful full flared skirt, but once again the dress is let down by some unimpressive footwear.

You can buy Han Dantong’s Mary Katrantzou Print Full Skirt Dress from Net-A-Porter.com and Nordstrom.

Solange Knowles In Clover Canyon & Mary Katrantzou – Instagram

Solange Knowles In Clover Canyon & Mary Katrantzou  - Instagram

The mistress of prints was at it again and doing ‘it’ in fine fashion.

As you know Solange Knowles is currently down under performing at various events, but is seems that she’s saving the reason why I love her–her love for prints–for Instagram.

Look One: For New Year’s Eve, she wore a spunky Clover Canyon Resort 2014 dress with an amazon jungle print, wood and straw photo collage dress with a flounce skirt. She offset her look with simple, black cut-out sandals and cat eye sunglasses.

Look Two: Posted on Instagram the a few days later, Solange wore a Mary Katrantzou Resort 2014 ‘Kite’ efflorescent silk halter romper that features a poppy field print backed with hazy mountains atop a graphic grid of building blocks on the short. Circular shade, a frosty pink lip colour and black ankle Jimmy Choo Freya strap booties finished up her look.

I love them equally, so you pick the best look.

Rebecca Ferguson In Mary Katrantzou – Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards

Rebecca Ferguson In Mary Katrantzou - Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards

Rebecca Ferguson attended the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards held at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London on Thursday evening.

The British singer wore a Mary Katrantzou Resort 2014 ‘Trinkolo’ dress which is a striking piece, showcasing the label at its very best; however, and I’m sad to say as Mary is one of my favourite designers, I don’t like what Rebecca has done to this look.

Her sleeveless printed party dress featuring a high round neck, a rose-and-trellis patterned bodice and a voluminous circle skirt in a contrasting pattern, which I had pictured on Poppy Delevingne or Rihanna as a performance piece, is let down by those open-toe embellished black booties which belong nowhere near this frock.

The only positive I can muster is the lip colour; just about everything else about the look is off, including – and especially – the skirt, which I will assume has a tutu underlay.

You can buy Rebecca’s Mary Katrantzou Print Full Skirt Dress from Nordstrom.com.

Hailee Steinfeld In Mary Katrantzou – ‘Romeo And Juliet’ Press Conference

Hailee Steinfeld In Mary Katrantzou - 'Romeo And Juliet' Press Conference

Hailee Steinfeld attended the ‘Romeo And Juliet’ Press Conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California yesterday afternoon prior to the evenings premiere.

She looked totally adorable wearing a look from Mary Katrantzou’s Resort 2014 collection which included a short sleeved bridge-print pink tee with a window-and-basketball court print mini skirt.

Considering pink hues within her look she added a punchy pink lip colour with a gold cuff completing her look.
