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 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

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.

Malin Akerman In Max Mara - Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour Party

Malin Akerman joined Kerry Washington at the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour party held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Sunday following the discussion panel for ‘Trophy Wife’ held earlier in the day.

The blonde beauty wore a Max Mara one-shoulder jumpsuit, which was simply styled with nude platform pumps, a matching lip colour and wavy tresses.

Having a case of déjà vu?

You may remember that Nina Dobrev wore this same jumpsuit to the 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon back in March.

Max Max Celebrates Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner was officially unveiled as Max Mara’s first celebrity spokesperson at a party held at Bill’s Food & Drink in New York City last night.

Jennifer Garner: The lady of the hour opted for a Max Mara black satin strapless cocktail dress styled with a black satin gold trim, Max Mara envelope clutch, Pomellato jewels and black sandals with a gold ankle strap. Adding a waist-defining belt would’ve perfected this look for me.

Solange Knowles: When it comes to Solange Knowles, I don’t need to make any suggestions to perfect her look, because it is already there. The print-loving singer opted for a simple Sportmax silk jersey sheath dress in her favourite hue, yellow, with on-trend white pumps, white nails and a hot-pink lip colour.

Molly Sims: The model/actress also opted for a Sportmax dress. Her summery pink-and-white striped look with a draped detail across the shoulders could’ve benefited from better styling. The nude Louboutins work, but I am not a fan of the brown Max Mara ‘Hollywood II’ clutch with this look.
