Aretha Franklin In Oscar de La Renta – DTE Energy Center Concert

Aretha Franklin performed to a packed crowd at the DTE Energy Center in Clarkston, Michigan yesterday.

A legendary diva needed a bold gown to match her commanding performance, and they don’t come much bigger or bolder than Oscar de la Renta.

Despite this being the second time we are seeing this gown worn by a celebrity, it’s the first time the strapless green gown with pink carnation appliqués has been worn with the pink ruched cape.

Jordana Brewster In Oscar de la Renta – 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

Jordana Brewster looked stunning on the red carpet for the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

She wore an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2011 dress.

Her mint green striped v-neck dress with twisted straps and ruched waist detail also has a stitch pleated skirt.

Jordana sported loose wavy glossy locks, a golden tan and a pretty pink lipshade.

Valentino scalloped ankle strap heels, a minty clutch and an oversized ring to completed her fresh summery look.

After Diane Kruger, this is my favourite look of the night.

Jessica Chastain In Oscar de la Renta – “The Help” LA Premiere

Jessica Chastain took to the red carpet on Tuesday night for “The Help” LA Premiere.

She was radiant wearing an Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011 gown.

Her plum crinkle silk chiffon strapless sweetheart neckline gown was paired with a stunning pair of turquoise earrings.

This trend of pairing plum gowns with turquoise earrings continues to be a winning combination.  

We first saw it on Cameron Diaz on the red carpet at the 2007 Costume Institute Gala and most recently on Sofia Vergara at the Smurfs World Premiere.

Blown out red locks, Jimmy Choo ‘Sierra’ platform sandals and pink matte lips completed her look.

Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake continued promoting their new movie, “Friends with Benefits” in London today by stopping by BBC Radio 1 studios.

Mila looked super-cute wearing an Oscar de la Renta Resort 2012 dress.

Her navy and white polka flamenco dress was paired with a quilted blue Chanel clutch, a Dana Rebecca Designs ‘Lauren Joy’ mini necklace and triple stacked Brian Atwood ‘Zenith’ platform taupe pumps.

This is a very pretty dress worn on a rare sunny day in London.

Abigail Spencer In Oscar de la Renta – “Cowboys & Aliens” World Premiere

Abigail Spencer joined Olivia Wilde, and Ana de la Reguera on the red carpet for the “Cowboys & Aliens” World Premiere during Comic-Con 2011 on Saturday in San Diego, California.

The brunette actress wore an Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011 dress.

I absolutely love her strapless dress with its rise and fall hemline plus those dazzling multi-coloured sequins.

I’m glad she allowed the dress to shine, as she opted for minimal accessories which included a Judith Leiber ‘Slidelock’ fully beaded minaudière.

Who Wore Oscar de la Renta Better? Rihanna or J.K. Rowling

At the 2011 Brit Awards earlier this year, Rihanna wowed the audience when she wore this stunning Oscar de la Renta Spring 2011 creation.

The beautiful singer dazzled in the strapless ivory silk gazar gown embroidered with red carnations, which complemented her fiery red hair perfectly.

Since the gown is such a standout piece, Rihanna chose not to overwhelm it with any accessories.

J.K. Rowling wore a green and rose pink version of the gown (which doesn’t have the same cinched in waist) to the World Premiere of “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2” in London recently.

The author played up the elegance of the dress by accessorizing with some pretty pink pieces including floral Bulgari earrings, a textured clutch and a matching pink diamond cocktail ring.

She opted to wear her hair in a chic up-do and also wear matching baby pink nail polish.

It’s hard to pick a winner for this one since both women styled the dress so differently, but my vote is going to Rihanna.

She looks amazing when she wears anything red and brings out the boldness of her hair colour even more and I much prefer the colour combination of her dress to the one worn by J.K. Rowling.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Oscar de la Renta – Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2″ New York Premiere

Sarah Jessica Parker arrived at the “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2” New York Premiere tonight which was held at the Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center.

The ‘Sex And The City’ actress attended with her family wearing an Oscar de la Renta Resort 2012 dress.

This is the first time we’ve seen a look on the red carpet from this collection.

Her navy and blossom watercolour satin chiffon gown was paired with a chic midnight blue Ferragamo blazer and an olive green Ferragamo bucket bag.

A tight bun and gorgeous aqua drop earring completed this “ready in 5 minutes” look, which is event appropriate for a major premiere without upstaging the lady of the night.

I absolutely adore this look.
