Jaime King In Prabal Gurung – InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Jaime King In Prabal Gurung - InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Jaime King attended the 2014 InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globe Awards post-party on Sunday (January 12) in Beverly Hills, California.

This frock is the third Prabal Gurung dress we saw on the red carpet last night.

You wern’t too enamoured by Zoe Saldana’s look and were put off by Sandra Bullock’s for the lack of a belt and the slight creases, so how does Jamie’s Spring 2014 offering fare?

The actress worked a white silk-organza off-the-shoulder dress with contrast black tank-style straps embellished with Swarovski crystals, feathered organza, rose-shaped paillettes and hand-smocked chiffon.

Sounds like a lot going on, but the details blend so beautifully together.

Following Kate Bosworth’s black straps/black pumps Dior styling, Jamie opted to style her black-strapped dress with Casadei pumps in the same colour as her dress, adding a black Jimmy Choo clutch and statement earrings into the mix.

A severe tight bun and red lips completed the look.

Zoe Saldana In Prabal Gurung – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Zoe Saldana In Prabal Gurung - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Every gaze must have been directed Zoe Saldana’s way, as she posed on the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday (January 12).

The actress, who is never one to shy away from the edgier side of fashion, debuted a ballet-pink and black frock from Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2014 collection.

The elegantly slim-line, pencil-skirt silhouette was given a provocative, futuristic dash of flair, given all that bold bric-a-brac that laced nearly every inch of the dress.

Punched up with silver flashing at the molded bodice and glittery flowery-like embellishment, it also featured an asymmetrical, sheer lace panel that shot through the bottom half and also showed up again at the slit of the back.

It was a sexy-sassy-quirky moment if there ever was one.

Matching blushing-nude heels and a pink Bottega Veneta clutch corresponded with the dress, while dainty Lorraine Schwarz diamond earrings, a slicked-back bun and red lip (no space-age lavender lipstick here) put a classic tinge on this complicated number.

Zoe has the distinct advantage of looking every bit as good as the runway model in this hyper-designed look. The complexity is what made this dress really tick—or for some, it may be its ultimate downfall. But the more I looked at it, the more I liked it, much to my own surprise.

You may remember that Fashion Critic had this dress picked out for Zoe Saldana on her wish list.

Sandra Bullock In Prabal Gurung – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Sandra Bullock In Prabal Gurung - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Sandra Bullock continued her rather new love affair with colour at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday evening (January 12).

The ‘Gravity’ star and best actress nominee continued to step outside the lines of her style comfort zone in a Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2014 high-low gown, which she wore with black, ankle-strap sandals.

Seeing the sharply tailored, lookbook version of this pink, black and baby-blue colour-block design immediately made me miss the punctuation of the white belt. It also cast a spotlight on some unfortunate wrinkles and rumples that appeared in Sandy’s dress.

That said, she looked beautiful with her soft, blushing makeup and fuchsia lip that played off the pastel pink in her ensemble. I was also delighted to see her brunette locks refreshingly swept into a side-parted low ponytail.

Cate Blanchett In Prabal Gurung – G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala

Cate Blanchett In Prabal Gurung - G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala

Cate Blanchett’s third look following the 3rd annual AACTA International Awards and the BAFTA LA 2014 Awards Season Tea Party came at the 2014 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala held at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California joining Naomi Watts.

This look, the best of the three, comes courtesy of Prabal Gurung.

The Pre-Fall 2014 look consists of a strapless satin gown featuring a fitted bodice with black beaded embroidery and a pleated-waist tulip skirt with a painted floral graphic, worn with a short-sleeved satin crop top with the same floral graphic.

She styled the look with Chopard blue-sapphire briolette cluster earrings and Christian Louboutin ‘Miss Rigidaine’ black patent-leather d’Orsay pumps with grey PVC detailing, with sleek tresses and a vibrant fuchsia-pink lip rounding out her look.

The silhouette is such that Cate looks 6ft tall here. I’m delighted she kept the crop top, as the look may not have felt so fashion-forward without it.

For most, topping a look as amazing as this would be impossible, but I’m sure Cate will do one better at the Golden Globes this evening.

TVB Anniversary Awards 2013

TVB Anniversary Awards

The TVB Anniversary Awards took place in Hong Kong, China on Monday evening (December 16), with celebs taking to the red carpet for the event.

Niki Chow: Putting the capital D into drama, the actress wore a Stéphane Rolland Fall 2013 Couture look consisting of a bandeau top, high-waist black pants and a dramatic cape with a jewelled neckline and shimmering appliqués at the hemline.

Nancy Wu: The actress wore a Roberto Cavalli Fall 2013 long-sleeved suede-and-chiffon gown embroidered with Swarovski crystals, which you may remember we saw on Liya Kebede during Cannes Film Festival.

Myolie Wu: This look is also a repeat. You may remember that Sonam Kapoor was the first to wear this Prabal Gurung Resort 2014 black-and-white ensemble. The look features a tuxedo jacket in a wrap-style silhouette with a notched lapel, styled with wide-leg tuxedo pants with contrast stripes and waistband; on this occasion the pants are way too long for Myolie and have been poorly hemmed.

Lupita Nyong’o In Prabal Gurung – Governors Awards 2013

Lupita Nyong'o In Prabal Gurung - Governors Awards 2013

Lupita Nyong’o attended the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards held at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center in LA yesterday evening alongside Angelina Jolie and Lea Seydoux.

In what might be her sexiest look yet, the actress wore a Prabal Gurung Resort 2014 tuxedo-inspired frock.

Her black wrap dress with white satin shawl collar, draped skirt and black satin tab detail on the hip was styled with white Christian Louboutin Batignolles python pumps, and a black Charlotte Olympia ‘Domino’ Pandora clutch which both Rachel Weisz and Diane Kruger have been spotted carrying.

While not being a fan of black or white pumps, I will happily accept white over black here, as black would’ve made the look feel so pedestrian.

That vivid violet lip is everything. She’s really inspiring me to expand my lipstick collection.

2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Models Red Carpet Roundup

2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Models Red Carpet Roundup

Taylor Swift and Ciara weren’t the only ones making a splash at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, held at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City yesterday. The red carpet played host to a handful of the show’s leggy models, all of whom wore only slightly less revealing clothing than what was shown on the runway.

Lindsay Ellingson: Decked out in a structural burgundy-hued minidress courtesy of Mugler Spring 2013, Lindsay took a more futuristic approach to sexy styling. To lighten the mood, she accessorized with powder pink pumps.

Karlie Kloss: The statuesque model chose an off-the-shoulder, cleavage-enhancing LWD from Cushnie Et Ochs Resort 2014, and paired it with a white studded Rebecca Minkoff  ‘Coco’ clutch and black sandals.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The Angel showed off her toned physique in a red leather Anthony Vaccarello Spring 2014 look, which featured a daring open front and strange triangle-shaped detail at the skirt’s hem. Metallic pumps and a gold cuff bracelet completed the look.

Ciara In Prabal Gurung – 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Ciara In Prabal Gurung - 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Ciara was one of the front-row guests at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held at Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City yesterday evening.

The singer showed off her lean legs in this thigh-high-slit gown from Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2013 collection.

Her navy silk-satin gown with dolman sleeves, a cutaway back and a draped waistline was styled without the leather harness we saw on the runway; however, she added her own hardware courtesy of her Giuseppe Zanotti black-and-gold sexy strappy sandals.

Apart from looking a tad snug around the waist, this is yet another great look for Ciara.
