Claire Danes In Oscar de la Renta – 2014 Met Gala

Claire-Danes-In-Oscar-de-la-Renta-2014-Met-Gala

Claire Danes looked lovely as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The actress wore a color-blocked satin and velvet gown from Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2014 collection.

I absolutely love the unexpected color combination going on here, and the juxtaposition of the two fabrics is divine.

Also a big win for me? How completely understated the whole thing is.

While I do wish that Claire had opted for the full high/low hemline effect that was shown on the runway, the star looks stunning.

A loose updo and earrings serve as the only accents here, which is a great move–understated elegance all the way.

Taylor Swift In Oscar de la Renta – 2014 Met Gala

Taylor Swift struck a pose on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The singer and red carpet darling wore a custom Oscar de la Renta gown of pale pink embellished satin accented with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Old Hollywood glamour is a signature for Ms. Swift, and it’s the perfect styling for her gown–the bright red lip, the cat eye, the deep side part and curls–all perfectly on point.

On a night like tonight it’s hard to shine, but Taylor certainly does a good job of turning heads with this classically beautifully look.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Oscar de la Renta – 2014 Met Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker In Oscar de la Renta - 2014 Met Gala

Event co-chair Sarah Jessica Parker was one of the first people to strike a pose on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The fashion superstar wore a delightfully dramatic custom Oscar de la Renta gown with peplum petals and elegant white gloves.

Sarah Jessica is one to watch at this event every year, because she really takes the theme to heart and plays up the drama. While this gown would have been hard to pull off on any other occasion, it is absolutely stunning and apropos for the night.

Smokey eyes and a unique double chignon are the perfect compliment to the striking look.

The back view is equally striking here, and Sarah Jessica’s hairstylist kept that in mind by adding floral accents to the back of her updo.

Thanks, Sarah Jessica for starting things off right!

Taylor Swift In Oscar de la Renta – Out In New York City

Taylor Swift In Oscar de la Renta - Out In New York City

I am starting to assume that there is a dress code for this New York gym, because Taylor Swift doesn’t leave the venue unless she is looking super chic.

For her previous gym outing she wore a Zooey Deschanel for Tommy Hilfiger frock, and yesterday (May 4) she donned red, white and blue again, looking very ladies-who-luncheon appropriate (aside from the shoes), wearing an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 look.

The trompe l’oeil blue gingham pencil dress with a thin belt accent was styled with a standout red shoulder bag and lace-up shoes which I’m trying – desperately – to ignore.

With the red bag not enough of a colour pop for the starlet, she added her signature red lip, with a sweeping glam hairstyle completing her look.

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

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 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.
