Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Hayley Atwell In Mulberry & Michael Van der Ham - Comic-Con 2014 & Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration

British actress Hayley Atwell was at Comic-Con International 2014 this weekend in San Diego, California to promote ‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and ‘Marvel’s Agent Carter’.

Press Line: Hayley’s first look was a simple black Mulberry Resort 2015 crepe dress with intriguing accessories which included her Lulu Guinness ‘Chloe’ clutch with a lipstick as the clasp, tri-colour snakeskin Christian Louboutin ‘Viveka’ sandals, plus a selection of jewels from Naviya London.

Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration: Next up was my favourite look, a patchwork top and skirt from the king of fabric collage, Michael Van der Ham. This Spring 2014 yellow, grey and black look features a floral-jacquard top with black textured-devoré inserts and a flirty A-line skirt. While her Jimmy Choo black and gold pumps and Naviya London jewels were subtle additions to the look, I love the Nathalie Trad ‘Dysdera’ mother of pearl clutch which both stands out and complements the look without overwhelming the outfit.

Sophie Turner In Michael Van Der Ham - Arqiva British Academy Television Awards

Joining Naomi Campbell and a host of stars, actress Sophie Turner attended last night’s Arqiva British Television Awards ceremony at London’s Theatre Royal (May 18).

Championing a British designer like she has done so many times on the red carpet, the Games of Thrones star opted for a strapless Michael Van Der Ham column dress.

While I’ve enjoyed her colourful Mary Katrantzou printed dresses in the past, it’s great to see Sophie opt for a more grown-up, paired-back palette and silhouette.

The dress is elegantly cut and the smoky eye and gunmetal clutch complement the palette and make for an altogether sexy and sultry look.

I do however think the dress deserved a more slick hair style, possibly something like a side-swept ponytail. Do you agree?

Kirsten Dunst In Michael van der Ham  - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Kirsten Dunst attended the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ premiere during Cannes Film Festival this evening in support of her beau Garrett Hedlund.

I’m going to use this occasion to announce that I don’t really get the hoopla when it comes to Kirsten’s style.

She has had some great red carpet moments, but this should not count as one of them.

I think even Jane Fonda at 75-years-old would stay she’s too young to wear this black sheer Michael van der Ham Fall 2013 gown with black and purple velvet appliqués and white lace embroidery.

This is far too frumpy for my liking. Even for someone who is attending as a plus one.

Vanessa Kirby In Michael Van Der Ham - Jameson Empire Film Awards 2013

London’s newest fashion IT girl is Vanessa Kirby.

She was the darling of London Fashion Week and it looks like she took plenty of notes judging by her colourful look at the Jameson Empire Awards, which took place in London on Sunday evening at Grosvenor House.

Donning an eclectic ensemble by the master of mixed prints, Michael van der Ham, the actress wore a hand-printed brushstroke blouse with an abstract floral-print skirt covered with iridescent sequins from his Spring 2013 collection.

Most stars would settle for the double dose of standout prints, but Vanessa added yet more colour and flair to her look with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood embroidered ankle booties.

An L.K. Bennett clutch and Fiya Jewellery ring accessorized her look, with golden wavy tresses, kohl-rimmed eyes and glossy lips providing the finishing touches.

I have a feeling Solange Knowles would give this mixed-printed look the thumbs up; I certainly am.

After a flying visit to New York to take in a few shows during Fashion Week, Tolula Adeyemi returned home to attend one of London’s most fashionable nights, the 2012 Elle Style Awards.

The British model and actress wore a Michael van der Ham Spring 2012 dress.

Dutch-born, London-based Michael van der Ham is London’s hottest new talent. So hot that recently added his Spring 2012 collection to the roster.

This silk-satin print gown beautifully encapsulates his signature look of clashing prints.

Without the sheer runway top, we can clearly see that the halter dress has one sleeve with a cold shoulder.

Wearing her hair up in a braided style, Tolula accessorized with a Milli Millu clutch, a Rachel Galley bracelet, Mawi cuff and ring plus Made rings and earrings.

Do you think this look is better on or off the runway?
