Lupita Nyong'o In Oscar de la Renta - 100th Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.

I hate to say it, but I’m not crazy about this Oscar de la Renta Fall 2014 gown at all.

It had great potential to be another Lupita fashion homerun, but sadly this look is making her appear wider than she is.

I don’t think it’s the fault of the tulle black-and-white polka dot peplum, but rather the black silk faille skirt. It needed to be narrower, more streamlined and shorter as it is bunching up on the floor.

I’m surprised at how bad the skirt is tailored.

Look back to her Dior Couture BAFTAs gown where she looked 6ft tall, then come back to this. This gown has the opposite, shortening effect.

A complementary Oscar de la Renta ‘Goa’ clutch, Fred Leighton jewels and a hot-pink lip completed her look.

Angie Harmon In Oscar de la Renta - The Colleagues’ 26th Annual Spring Luncheon

Angie Harmon joined Reese Witherspoon for the Colleagues’ 26th Annual Spring Luncheon held at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Tuesday (April 29) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress wore a pretty Oscar de la Renta Resort 2014 peony and topaz silk-faille sequin-floral-embroidered dress in a classic silhouette.

She styled her frock with silver satin Oscar de la Renta ‘Melissa’ sandals which I can’t say were the perfect choice.

Reese Witherspoon In Oscar de la Renta - The Colleagues' 26th Annual Spring Luncheon

Reese Witherspoon attended the Colleagues’ 26th Annual Spring Luncheon held at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Tuesday (April 29) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress wore an event-appropriate ladies-who-lunch look from the maestro of that style, Oscar de la Renta.

Her Fall 2014 floral-printed green and blue silk dress features precisely constructed vertical seams which give way to inverted pleats to create a feminine, full-skirted silhouette.

The look was kept modern with her Charlotte Olympia green Perspex clutch, cream Manolo Blahnik sandals, and a gold cuff, which perhaps wasn’t really needed on this occasion.

Variety Power Of Women New York Luncheon

A host of lovely ladies took to the red carpet for the Variety Power Of Women: New York luncheon held at Cipriani 42nd Street today (April 25) in New York City.

Sarah Jessica Parker: The actress wore a dress from her favourite designer: Giles, donning a strapless pink, mauve and black bat-print frock styled with an Alice+ Olivia embroidered Victorian top and SJP ‘Fawn’ pumps.

Iman: Looking as beautiful and statuesque as ever, the supermodel donned a Michael Kors pleated nutmeg dress from the Spring 2014 collection accented with a snakeskin belt. The dress was styled with a Michael Kors ‘Miranda’ clutch in a matching hue and chocolate open-toe sandals. You may remember that Heidi Klum wore this same dress earlier this year.

Claire Danes: Looking pretty in hot-pink Claire wore an Oscar de la Renta dress with a bubble hem styled with nude sandals.

Jessica Biel In Oscar de la Renta - Tiffany & Co Celebrates The 2014 Blue Book

Jessica Biel attended Tiffany’s 2014 Blue Book Gala at the Guggenheim Museum on Thursday (April 10) in New York City.

The actress wore a black silk-velvet Oscar de la Renta Fall 2014 slinky, seductive gown which was fitted to the body, with an alluring décolleté neckline which was decorated with the host’s dazzling diamond-drop platinum necklace, and a silver-metal waistband.

Simple black pumps, a black-and-white Oscar de la Renta Goa clutch and diamond-drop earrings accessorized her look, with a wispy updo and hot-pink lip rounding out her look.

With all due respect to the host, I would’ve preferred this look without the necklace.

Carrie Underwood In Oscar de la Renta - ACM Awards 2014

Carrie Underwood shimmied her way down the red carpet for the 49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (April 6) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dressed in a white Oscar de la Renta gold-beaded fringe gown, I wanted to be wowed but this feels a bit tame by Carrie’s standards.

I don’t dislike the gown by any means – I just wanted more. More frou frou, as I missed a princess moment on this red carpet.

The look was styled with signature glossy waves, Jimmy Choo sandals, a white beaded clutch and David Yurman jewels.

Does this look wow you?
