Weekend Red Carpet Roundup

weekend roundup

The weekend brought with it a garden variety of ensembles from Los Angeles to London, and more. Here, a glance at the looks and the starlets who wore them.

Emma Roberts: Joining Diane Kruger and Freida Pinto, the actress was at the 8th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park on Saturday (May 30) in Jersey City, New Jersey. She styled her sunny yellow Christine Alcalay Spring 2015 dress with Michael Kors Benji straw wedge sandals, an M2malletier Mini Amor Fati leopard pony bag, and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Chantilly sunglasses, all topped off with a braided ’do.

Elsa Pataky: Elsa was the picture of girly charm, as she joined Emily Blunt at the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park on Sunday (May 31) in London, England. Her rose-printed Ulyana Sergeenko demi couture dress was adorable yet I would have loved to see it without the pink sweater. Casadei nude suede pumps assured her legs went on for days, with a Paula Cademartori clutch finishing the look.

Sophia Bush: The actress was at Glamour USA’s June ‘Success’ Issue dinner party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California on Friday (May 29). While her Vivienne Westwood Fall 2015 dress, worn with a Rauwolf clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, was rather elaborate with its heavy print and silhouette, she ensured the look stayed fresh with her hair and makeup on the barely-there side.

Models @ The Chopard Party

Models @ The Chopard Party

Models were out in force for the Chopard party during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France on Monday (May 18).

As always, there was a lot of bling courtesy of the host Chopard, plenty of thigh-revealing frocks and of course, a high percentage of Elie Saab Couture gowns.

Lindsay Ellingson: The model wore a Sophie Theallet striped gown with thigh-high slit. I love the added flavour via her colourful leather belt and shoes from Sophie Theallet’s ‘Jamaican Dancehall’ collection which I must own.

Thairine Garcia: My jaw-dropped upon seeing the red haired model wearing this gorgeous green Elie Saab gown. Red + green = red carpet perfection.

Daniela Braga: The Brazilian model sparkled in a blue Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture gown which was similar in style to Ana Beatriz Barros’ red gown (from the same collection) who was standing right beside her.

Toni Garrn: Shunning the bling trend, the model kept things simple in a blush silk Blumarine gown.

Petra Nemcova: I expected some bling from Petra, but on this occasion that only came courtesy of her Chopard jewels.

Irina Shayk: Showing an incredible amount of restraint, the model, who’s known to wear many embellished gowns slit to the thigh, opted for a simple yet chic Misha Nonoo jumpsuit on this occasion.

Adriana Lima: The model also went down a surprisingly muted path vamping up her simple white gown with Giuseppe Zanotti accessories.

Isabeli Fontana: An any other day we would scold the Brazilian beauty for overcooking her embellished Elie Saab Couture gown with that necklace, but this was a Chopard party, excess was expected.

Emma Watson In Misha Nonoo – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Emma Watson In Misha Nonoo - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Emma Watson was another big winner at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, as the starlet took home the British Style Icon Award on Monday (December 1).

Showing just why she nabbed the trophy, she walked the red carpet at England’s London Coliseum in a Misha Nonoo Spring 2015 white, wide-legged jumpsuit covered by an oversized (albeit style-forward) black tuxedo blazer.

The more critical among us may have immediately discounted the ensemble on the basis of that coat, but once removed, the true spirit of the look was revealed.

Emma has always been one to work the masculine-feminine angle quite well, and she does so to perfection here again with the plunge neckline contributing a sultry edge to the mannish, baggy silhouette of the pant.

A red lip and sideswept waves are all that’s needed to finish out the effortlessly chic statement, which was easily one of my favourites of the night.

Jessica Chastain In Nonoo – Out In Ischia

Jessica Chastain In Nonoo - Out In Ischia

Jessica Chastain looked effortless and chic while taking a boat ride with her boyfriend Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo in Ischia, Italy during some downtime while attending the 2014 Ischia Global Film and Music Festival.

Jessica wore a Nonoo Resort 2015 all-white look, donning a cropped knit tee with sheer panels and a midi skirt which also featured a sheer panel at the hemline.

Accessories included a pair of white-trimmed shades, a salmon-coloured tote and dual-colour metallic-gold and black flats.

While I love the fresh feel of this look, especially when she later channels her inner ’60s screen siren and adds a chic black and white printed scarf, the footwear doesn’t gel so well with the rest of the look for me.

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards Models Roundup


Amid the crush of starlets and designers at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2), the models definitely had their moment, too. They strutted out a range of dazzling, directional and sometimes daring looks at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Joan Smalls: Putting her statuesque height to good use, Joan worked her midnight-navy Prabal Gurung draped, cutout gown to sexy effect also flaunting an Angelina leg through the thigh-high slit. She styled the look with metallic ankle-tie sandals and a mod fringe bang, but the gold choker necklace was unnecessary here.

Alessandra Ambrosio
: The Victoria’s Secret cat-walker took a red-hot approach in a Nonoo strapless gown featuring a structured bodice with a crossover ribbon tie at the back. She accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewels, including a sharp, diamond-pointed pair of earrings.
