Best Dressed Of The Week – Priyanka Chopra In Cushnie et Ochs & Halston Sage In Prabal Gurung

BDOTW 10 aug

Usually if a gown is placed in the BDOTW poll, it is likely to win, but this week Priyanka Chopra won wearing a sexy Cushnie et Ochs teal fitted dress.

My pick was Halston Sage in Prabal Gurung. The look left me in awe as it was so sleek and modern.

When it came to the men, you couldn’t separate the handsome Chace Crawford in maroon and Jason Segal in teal Prada.

I, on the other hand, picked Miles Teller who looked very dapper in his Louis Vuitton double-breast suit.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 6 august

It’s time to celebrate the fine gentlemen who’ve been hitting the red carpet this week.

Jason Segel: The actor, who was my best dressed last week, attended the screening of ‘The End of the Tour’ on Sunday (August 2) in East Hampton, New York. While I love the teal hue of his Prada suit, I don’t like the striped tie and I think the trousers are perhaps an inch too long.

Miles Teller: The actor joined co-star Kate Mara on the red carpet for the ‘Fantastic Four’ New York premiere on Tuesday (August 4). I do love a double-breasted suit; unfortunately they don’t necessarily work for everyone. Miles totally nailed his look rocking Louis Vuitton with Christian Louboutin shoes with both style and panache.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

July menswear

Here’s a quick roundup of some of the fine gentlemen who hit the red carpet this week.

Jason Segal: I was in awe of how dapper Jason looked in his Etro navy suit while making a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (July 29).

Chris Hemsworth: The Australian actor joined his lovely wife Elsa Pataky on the red carpet on Monday (July 27) for the LA premiere of ‘Vacation’. Also going the navy suit and plum shoe route, the actor wore Prada, taking the formality out of the look by going sans tie. Such a shame about the ill-fitting trousers.

Jeremy Renner: The actor attended the New York premiere of ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’ on Monday (July 27) with Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson. While this black Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit is quite a common look for Jeremy, I can’t help but marvel at the fine Italian craftsmanship.

Elle Fanning In Prada – The Opening Night Gala Of ‘Tig’

Elle Fanning In Prada - The Opening Night Gala Of 'Tig'

Elle Fanning attended the opening night gala of ‘Tig’ during the 2015 Outfest LGBT Film Festival at Orpheum Theatre on Thursday (July 9) in Los Angeles, California.

I was delighted to see her wearing a look from the Prada Fall 2015 collection as I think many of the dresses, especially this dainty aqua blue frock with bow accents, was made for her.

Her look was styled with silver Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps that complemented the crystal bows on her frock plus a hint of pink lip colour.

With starlets such as Hailee Steinfeld in a huge rush to break away from her sweet girl image, I’m glad Elle continues to know what works best for her.

Isabella Rossellini, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts, Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Lilly Collins attended Lancôme’s 80th Anniversary Party as ambassadors of the brand on Tuesday (July 7) in Paris, France.

Isabella Rossellini: The gorgeous Italian actress suited up in a classic tux adding a feminine touch via her Chanel pearls.

Lupita Nyong’o: The Kenya beauty didn’t get the wear-black memo, opting to stand out in a sparkling silver Prada number.

Julia Roberts: I’m not surprised to see Julia in a Givenchy suit. I love the flirty nature with the shorter length and delicate lace blouse.

Penelope Cruz: The Spanish beauty stood out for me in her Emilio Pucci lace accented gown, even if it does feel a bit dated.

Kate Winslet: Many of you are tired of her go-to fitted frocks, so on this occasion you will be delighted to see her don an Alaia fit and flare design.

Lily Collins: The young actress wore an elaborate Mikael D high-low gown styled with Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Messika jewels. The nude lining is turning me off this look.

Despite the lack of colour there is are some great looks here. My favourites are Isabella and Penelope.

14th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball

14th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball

A group of lovelies flocked to the 14th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, hosted on Saturday (June 6) at a private Mandeville Canyon Estate in Los Angeles, California.

Elizabeth Banks
: Looking every bit like a ray of sunshine, the actress donned a bright chartreuse Prada jacquard-embroidered frock with nude lace Jimmy Choo shoes and Kwiat earrings. The quirkier nature of Prada designs can be problematic on the red carpet, but Elizabeth pulls off the bold look with elegance and aplomb.

Leven Rambin
: I loved seeing Leven in this striking Marchesa semi-sheer gown with exploded paisley embroidery. The sleek updo and deep red lip added another layer of vibrancy to this fresh outing.

Sharon Stone
: While the two-piece ensemble itself wasn’t so flattering to Sharon’s beautiful figure, what was more bothersome was the strange collection of accessories that cluttered the look—from the pashmina shawl to the overly decorative earrings and sandals.
