Kristen Bell In Zuhair Murad & Monique Lhuillier – 2014 CMT Music Awards

Kristen Bell In Zuhair Murad & Monique Lhuillier - 2014 CMT Music Awards2

Kristen Bell attended the 2014 CMT Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (June 4) in Nashville, Tennessee.

The host of the show started off her night wearing a Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 sleeveless deep-blue and black beaded V-neck gown.

It’s a gorgeous gown, and I love the slinky silhouette, but I prefer Kristen when she wears lighter hues.

So you can imagine my disappointment when I saw the rest of her looks.

The second and third looks were both from the Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 collection. The first being a gunmetal strapless embroidered chiffon gown and the second a black long sleeve leather embroidered cocktail dress.

She then went onto change into two more black gowns.

Five dark dresses? For a host of a music show, these looks are so boring and lazy.

Emily VanCamp In Monique Lhuillier – Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Emily Van Camp In Monique Lhuillier - Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

Emily VanCamp attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards held at Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday (June 3) in London, England, where she picked up the International TV Actress award for ‘Revenge’.

The actress opted for a ladylike Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 fuchsia tweed-print neoprene high-neck bell-sleeved midi dress accented with a black patent belt.

While the look feels more morning show or photocall appropriate by my reckoning, the look is well styled with black pumps, a gold clutch and a pretty pink lip.

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards Models Roundup

CFDA 1

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.

Ashley Madekwe & Ahna O’Reilly In Monique Lhuillier – Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 Luncheon

Ashley Madekwe & Ahna O'Reilly In Monique Lhuillier - Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 Luncheon

Ashley Madekwe and Ahna O’Reilly attended the Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 luncheon held at the Monique Lhuillier Salon at Melrose Place in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday (May 20), with the ladies wearing looks from different seasons.

Ashley Madekwe: The actress went for Spring, wearing a coral re-embroidered lace shell top with a floral Lucite collar paired with a poppy guipure-lace pencil skirt. You can always rely on Ashley for a touch of flair; here she added a pair of multi-coloured Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, Rose+Stone rings and cuffs, with a hot-red lip rounding out her look.

Ahna O’Reilly: Sporting a side-swept twisted ponytail, the actress also opted for a ladylike look, with her black confetti petal-print top and skirt accented with a black patent-leather belt hailing from the Fall 2014 collection. Like Ashley, Ahna didn’t skimp on the footwear, upping the ante of her look with a metallic-gold pair of Jimmy Choos.

I think both looks are very chic and elegant for the occasion. It’s impossible for me to pick a favourite. Can you?

Cheryl Cole In Monique Lhuillier – ‘Foxcatcher’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Foxcatcher" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Cheryl Cole made her first (and only) appearance on the red carpet this evening (May 19) for the ‘Foxcatcher’ Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

The singer and returning X Factor judge wore a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 strapless black lurex jacquard gown with a rise and fall hemline.

Like Jessica Chastain, Cheryl’s gown was attacked by the wind, sending her train flowing behind her, which she also handled gracefully.

With her two-tone hair swept up into a chic updo, she completed her look with de Grisogono jewels, and black Gianvito Rossi ‘Carey’ triple-strap pumps I wish were sandals.

Many of you love Cheryl for her penchant for Stéphane Rolland Couture at this event, so does this look delight or disappoint?

It’s a nice enough look, but this the first time Cheryl has failed to wow me at Cannes.
