Scarlett Johansson In Prada – ‘The Avengers’ London Premiere

Scarlett Johansson was joined by her co-stars on the red carpet in London tonight for the premiere of her latest movie ‘The Avengers’ held at the Vue Westfield.

The actress donned a Prada dress.

Her strapless peplum dress featured a black bodice embroidered with red-and-blue floral details and a black-and-blue cut-out lace-effect pencil skirt.

This look is a vast improvement on the one she wore to the Moscow premiere, but the peplum looks like an afterthought and the string hanging off her hemline makes me itch.

Red Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps, a ‘Heidi’ braid, Bulgari jewels and a rich red lip colour completed her look.

I don’t hate this look, but I’m not wowed by it either.

I’m still wishing for a return of the ScarJo of old and some more colourful red-carpet looks.

Let’s move on from the Black Widow references.

Alice Eve In Prada – ‘The Raven’ New York Premiere

Alice Eve attended the New York screening of her latest movie ‘The Raven’ last night.

The British actress joins a long list of stars who are loving the 50s Americana-inspired Prada Spring collection including Freida Pinto, Dakota Fanning, Katy Perry, Leighton Meester, Jennifer Lawrence and Anna Dello Russo.

If you’re potty for pastels you will love this powder-blue dress with an asymmetrical hem and tied shoulder straps.

I love how she gives the look a funky twist with a tri-colour pair of Prada ‘Tail light’ jewel-toe wedges.

The English rose fifties-style updo with a black hairband and flawless makeup provided the finishing touches.

You can buy Alice’s Prada wedges in red or green from Saks.com.

Freida Pinto In Prada – NYLON Magazine 13th Anniversary Celebration

Freida Pinto was at the Smashbox Studios in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening for Nylon Magazine‘s 13th Anniversary Celebration.

The Indian beauty opted for a very summery look from the Prada Spring 2012 collection.

It’s nice to see a star embrace the current season for a change.

Her head-to-toe Prada look included a colour-block sleeveless knit sweater with a sateen skirt adorned with a racing car motif.

Freida accessorized with ivory vernice pumps with metal spiked heels, a turquise ring and a cute teal blue Prada clutch with yellow trims and a white bow.

Sweeping locks, a gorgeous smile and glossy lips completed this look.

Should this look join Coco Rocha in the BDOTW poll?

Kate Bosworth In Prada – ‘L!fe Happens’ LA Premiere

Kate Bosworth joined Krysten Ritter on the red carpet for the ‘L!fe Happens’ LA premiere at AMC Century City in California last night.

She opted to wear a beige Prada dress with a collection of beautiful gold-and-silver embellishments.

Despite her bejewelled dress, Kristen accessorized with a pair of Christian Louboutin silver strappy sandals, which have an embellished heel, and JewelMint jewelry.

Wavy side-parted locks, a JewelMint envelope clutch and a pop of colour via a fuchsia-pink lip colour provided the perfect finishing touches.

Some accuse Kate of trying too hard, but with this seemingly effortless look you can’t deny the girl looks beautiful.

Victoria Beckham For Harper’s Bazaar UK May 2012

Victoria Beckham graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK’s May 2012 issue which also celebrates Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, marking her 60th year on the throne.

The Queen of Fashion – that’s Victoria – was shot by Camilla Akrans wearing a Prada Spring 2012 bodysuit.

These bodysuits have already appeared in many editorials, which is not surprising considering it would take someone like Rihanna, Katy Perry or Fergie to bring these pieces alive on the red carpet.

In the magazine Victoria talks about motherhood, how she feels about her body and what it’s like to go to bed with David Beckham – hopefully she goes into detail.

The May issue of Harper’s Bazaar goes on sale Monday 2nd April.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Fall 2012

Miu Miu also had a celeb-packed front row yesterday.

Mia Wasikowska: The current face of Miu Miu was front and centre wearing a bi-colour pink-and-black dress with a flared skirt. This is a typically demure choice for the actress, but I wish she would opt for shoes in a colour other than nude just once.

Lea Seydoux: The French actress was in head-to-toe Prada, which is not surprising considering she’s the face of Prada’s Resort 2012 ad campaign. What is surprising is that she’s cut off all her lovely hair. I’m not sure if it is for a new role, or if she just fancied a change, but I did not recognise her. She donned an embroidered black Prada dress with her second pair of Prada flame heels, this time in green. A black flame clutch completed her look.

Katy Perry: The Paris Fashion Week Fall 2012 ‘Queen of the Front Row’ donned a cute pink Prada Spring 2012 flame-print pleated dress. I love her quirky accessories which include a blue Prada Saffiano Lux Pyramid bag with studs and the Prada flame sandals in lemon, but that hair goes from bad to worse.

Kate Mara: The actress opted for a rich, warm berry Miu Miu look featuring a leather trend with jewel button, worn over a top with a black Peter Pan embellished collar and shorts to match. I’m not so crazy about the fuchsia-pink Miu Miu peep-toes – they feel a tad stark against the berry – but I do like the leather pochette.

Leighton Meester In Prada – ‘The Woman Dress’ by Giada Colagrande Screening

Leighton Meester attended a screening of ‘The Woman Dress’ directed by Giada Colagrande.

This is the third in a series of short films directed by female filmmakers exploring women’s love affair with Miu Miu.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress looked breathtaking wearing a Prada Spring 2012 dress.

Her modified version has a deeper plunge, plus the print on the bodice differs but the pleated skirt, which is in a warm lemon colour, remains the same.

I love her chic updo and her red lips which matches her bag, but I’m not so crazy about the nude pumps.

Although I prefer the Leighton’s modified dress. I would happily swap the nude pumps for those runway strappy sandals.

Many of you disliked Leighton’s last look, so would you consider this an upgrade?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Thandie Newton In Osman & Lea Seydoux In Prada

This week you voted for simple elegance, as Thandie Newton was your best dressed wearing a beautiful black Osman gown.

Her chic black one-shoulder gown with a flash of gold from her belt was perfectly accessorized with a Roger Vivier clutch, Solange Azagury-Partridge tassel earrings and Charlotte Olympia wedges.

Lea Seydoux was my favourite this week.

I love that she has the bombshell vibe about her, without being so upfront like Amber Heard.

She quietly smouldered on the red carpet wearing head-to-toe Prada.

The dress was gorgeous, but her accessories were to die for.
