Michelle Obama In Michael Kors – State of the Union Address

Michelle Obama In Michael Kors - State of the Union Address
Michelle Obama was in attendance for the 2015 State of the Union address at the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday (January 20).

For the notable evening, she dressed in an impeccably fit, black-and-white tweed suit ensemble from the Michael Kors Fall 2013 collection.

Slightly modified from the runway, the FLOTUS put a more conservative and classic twist on the design, removing the sportier belt and skipping the bolder accessories, including the jewels and the gloves.

Yet the look still boasted the effortless, modern flair we expect to see from the First Lady.

I love how the mock-cape, origami shoulder detail beautifully frames her face and neckline, especially given her gracefully styled waves and pop of pink lip lacquer.

Julianna Margulies’ ‘Good Wife’ character Alicia Florrick rather coincidentally has worn this same look, which garnered near-immediate ‘who wore it better’ comparisons.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Michael Kors – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Gwyneth Paltrow In Michael Kors - 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Gwyneth Paltrow snuck in the back entrance so we only got to see her on stage while presenting at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 11).

The actress wore one of her favourite designers, Michael Kors, wearing a custom pink silk crepe gown with tulle inset, which she styled with a matching pink lip and Harry Winston jewels.

Twitter was abuzz that shows like ‘The Good Wife’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ were robbed, as well as other actors and actresses, but I would say that Michael Kors was robbed of what would’ve been a great red carpet moment.

Emily Blunt In Michael Kors – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Emily Blunt In Michael Kors - 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Emily Blunt attended the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 11) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

Having already won our attention this year on the BDOTW list, the Best Actress nominee for ‘Into the Woods’ continued her chic form in a custom Michael Kors pleated gown.

Stark white, with crisscross detailing, the dress received a dose of turquoise colour via Lorraine Schwartz jewels, with Emily also accessorizing with a Judith Leiber clutch and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.

A more sleek ’do than her braided-back look would have been preferred here, but it’s still hard to argue with her elegant poise.

Jessica Chastain In Lela Rose & Michael Kors – 2015 AFI Awards & 2015 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch

Jessica Chastain In Lela Rose & Michael Kors - 2015 AFI Awards & 2015 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch

Jessica Chastain attended two events this weekend starting with the 2015 AFI Awards held at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on Friday (January 9) in Beverly Hills and the 2015 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch at BOA Steakhouse on Saturday (January 10) in West Hollywood, California.

2015 AFI Awards: Her first look was an exquisitely tailored Lela Rose Spring 2015 shimmering tweed dress featuring a slim bodice, which gave way to an elegant tulip skirt. Simple and sophisticated, I would’ve loved this look more had it not been for the Jimmy Choo black pumps weighing down the look.

2015 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch: On this occasion her black pumps worked perfectly well with this more playful black and optic white printed Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2015 dress decked out with a patent Peter Pan collar.

For the overall styling the second look works best for me. What say you?

Reese Witherspoon In Michael Kors – 26th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

Reese Witherspoon In Michael Kors - 26th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

As I said in an earlier post, Reese Witherspoon is my one to watch for awards season, so I was delighted to see her on fine form for the 26th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala held at Palm Springs Convention Center on Saturday (January 3) in Palm Springs, California.

The ‘Wild’ actress, who doesn’t often wear black, selected a black Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2015 pearl-embroidered dress steeped with plenty of feminine flare, which suits her sense of style.

Styled with black satin Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps, I really miss the belt, but perhaps she decided to forgo it in favour of the sweet pink lip colour.

Do you miss the belt?

Taylor Swift In Michael Kors – 2014 American Music Awards

Taylor Swift In Michael Kors - 2014 American Music Awards

Being the first up to perform at the 2014 American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (November 23) in Los Angeles, California, Taylor Swift skipped the red carpet, but did have her red carpet moment in the press room.

The singer donned a gorgeous emerald Michael Kors custom gown which featured an illusion yoke and cut-out at the waist.

What I love about this gown is that it provides a different silhouette for Taylor and the fact that for once the length is not above the knee.

The look is sexy without trying too hard, and it is chic and modern, but I have always, as you well know, found it hard to love illusion necklines when they are so obvious.
