Jennifer Garner In Max Mara – Marvelous Max Mara Tokyo 2013

Jennifer Garner In Max Mara - Marvelous Max Mara Tokyo 2013Jennifer Garner attended the Marvelous Max Mara Tokyo 2013 photo call yesterday at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Japan.

As the current face of Max Mara, the actress naturally wore the label, elegantly donning a streamlined, all-white sleeveless crepe column gown with a refined side ruffle and slit detail.

She paired the pristine dress with a Max Mara black suede clutch with gold piping and black Christian Louboutin ‘Palais Royal’ peep-toe heels, which made for a fitting touch to this monochromatic statement.

Her styling is really what sold the look for me. The black accessories, while dramatic, don’t overpower the gown. She has just the right amount of sparkle on her wrists, and her loosened updo, light smokey eye and nude lip are each sophisticatedly soft and appropriate.

Camila Alves In Max Mara – 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Camila Alves In Max Mara - 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey attended the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening.

Matthew was decked out in a dapper three-piece suit (my favourite kind) but all eyes would’ve been on Camila, who looked stunning wearing a Max Mara black-and-white gown with a keyhole detail from the Resort 2014 collection.

Naya Rivera made me think that perhaps I didn’t like black and white styled together on the red carpet, but Camila’s styling is far superior, with a black Christian Louboutin clutch and white Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps accessorizing the look.

Kerry Washington In Max Mara & Brood – ‘The Daily Show With Jon Stewart’

Kerry Washington In Max Mara & Brood - 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart'

Kerry Washington made a guest appearance on ‘The Daily Show With Jon Stewart’ to promote the start of season 3 of ‘Scandal’, which aired in the US yesterday evening.

The actress arrived wearing a loose-fitted Max Mara red dress styled with a gold pendant necklace, Christian Louboutin snakeskin pumps and a black clutch. Following her four looks from the previous day, this look had me believing that she hasn’t lost her mojo.

That was until I saw the second look.

Once again she wore an unflattering, aging look which does nothing for her.

This Brood Fall 2013 printed drop-waist frock will do nothing to dispel the rumours that she may be with child. The only thing I like about this look is her chartreuse Jimmy Choo ‘Mill’ pumps.

Jennifer Morrison In Max Mara & Monique Lhuillier – Toronto Film Festival

Jennifer Morrison In Max Mara & Monique Lhuilier - Toronto Film Festival

Jennifer Morrison didn’t miss the Toronto International Film Festival action either, as the ‘Once Upon A Time’ actress descended upon Canada for a trio of appearances over the last few days.

‘Gravity’ Premiere: The star walked down the red carpet for the Sunday premiere at Princess of Wales Theatre in a Max Mara white top and navy long skirt. The ensemble was rather safe, but just became strange when worn with the combination of a fishtail side braid, Christian Louboutin leopard pumps and a bubblegum-pink clutch.

‘August: Osage County’ Premiere: Unfortunately, I was getting the same lacklustre, daresay mumsy, vibes with Jennifer’s outfit at this premiere, hosted on Monday at Roy Thomson Hall. The washed-out blush-pink hue of her jacket and dress just didn’t do anything for this vibrant actress’s enviable figure, and the black clutch was far too intense.

InStyle & Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Annual TIFF Party: For yesterday’s event, hosted by Salvatore Ferragamo at the Windsor Arms Hotel, she got into the soiree spirit with an electric blue Monique Lhuillier strapless dress. Its embellished frothiness was complemented by a waist-cinching black sash. No need to look up or down, as the same topknot and black clutch from her second look were still in place; so too were those Louboutin leopard soles.

If I had to choose a favourite, it would be the Monique Lhuillier dress, minus the triple-play animal-print pumps that were paired with it.

Who Wore Max Mara Better…Nina Dobrev or Malin Akerman?

Who Wore Max Mara Better Nina Dobrev or Malin Akerman

Back in March Nina Dobrev wore a red-haute one-shoulder Max Mara jumpsuit to The Hollywood Reporter’s Most Powerful Hollywood Stylists luncheon with her stylist Ilaria Urbinati.

The ‘Vampires Diaries’ star opted for gold accessories including a Devi Kroell clutch and Jimmy Choo ‘Biel’ wedges.

Last month Malin Akerman wore the same jumpsuit to the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour, opting for much simpler styling of just nude pumps with a glossy red lip to complement her look.

Nina wins for me as I prefer her gold accessories and the length of the pants, which stop just at the ankle.
