Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Melonie Diaz In Preen - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Melonie Diaz brought a burst of colour to the blue carpet at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, held on Saturday (March 1) at Santa Monica Beach in California.

The ‘Fruitvale Station’ actress and nominee wore a kaleidoscope of a dress from the Preen Spring 2014 collection.

The white, sleeveless frock was emboldened with an abstract, zig-zag geometric print in a bright palette of hues.

In this case, I don’t mind the revisions from the runway design. After all, we’ve seen enough sheer hemlines as it is.

Nor I am bothered by the selection of black pumps, even if a sandal may have been preferred. The heels, along with a minimalistic black VBH handbag, allowed the boldness of the artsy dress to take centre stage.

However, her fuchsia lip was an excellent non-black accessory. W. Britt gold earrings and a bracelet topped off the look.

Aubrey Plaza In Preen - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Aubrey Plaza attended the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted Saturday (March 1) at Santa Monica Beach in California.

The ‘Parks and Recreation’ funny girl was pulling no punches when it came to her Preen Pre-Fall 2014 dark-navy frock, edged in a pop of sherbet orange.

The full-skirted dress had the chic sophistication of a vintage silhouette—this was ’50s housewife, with a fierce twist.

I loved that she infused it with a bold edge via a fantastic pair of Brian Atwood ‘Starlet’ zebra-print orange pumps, not to mention a bright red lippie and darkly lacquered manicure.

A Lauren Merkin clutch and understated Shylee Rose jewels completed the look.

Annabelle Wallis In Preen - BVLGARI Presents 'Decades Of Glamour'Annabelle Wallis was also among the chic starlet set at the BVLGARI Presents ‘Decades of Glamour’ event, hosted by Naomi Watts at Soho House in West Hollywood, California on Tuesday (February 25).

You could nearly sense the urging of spring by the British actress, who plucked a feminine, ruffled-hem dress from the Preen Resort 2014 collection.

That’s not to say that the frock, with its dusting of mini forget-me-not flowers, didn’t have a darker side. The black dip-dye effect at the hem did create a tougher, grunge appeal. Of course, it also rather looked as if the dress had suffered an unfortunate mud splash.

In addition to a magenta lip, she accessorized in warm-season style with Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 sandals and a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 lavender clutch, picking up on the blue and light-purple tones of the floral print.

Malin Akerman In Preen - Disney ABC Television Group's 2014 Winter TCA Party

Prior to the 2014 SAG Awards, Malin Akerman attended the Disney ABC Television Group’s 2014 winter TCA party held at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa on Friday (January 17) in Pasadena, California.

The actress opted for a very summery look, donning a Preen Spring 2014 colourful-collage-print white pencil dress with a flounce hem styled with light-blue Tibi ankle-wrap sandals.
Signature tousled tresses rounded out her out-of-season, yet delightful, summery look.

Does she get a pass because she looks so pretty and didn’t wear this to Sundance, or is this too summery for the current season?

Diane Kruger In Preen - Sean Penn 3rd Annual Help Haiti Home Gala

Diane Kruger attended the 3rd Annual Sean Penn & Friends Help Haiti Home Gala hosted by Giorgio Armani at the Montage Hotel on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California.

For her second look of the weekend, the German actress wore a Preen ‘Bergman’ Pre-Fall 2014 long-sleeved black dress with a bell-shaped skirt, V-neckline and a cut-out detail at the back.

The classic look was styled with a contemporary mirrored clutch, white Stuart Weitzman pumps and stunning drop earrings courtesy of H. Stern.

Blown-out tresses and a red lip colour provided the finishing touches.

This is a nice change of pace from Diane.

Emily Mortimer In Preen - 2014 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant And Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch

Emily Mortimer attended the 2014 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant And Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch held at BOA Steakhouse on Saturday (January 11) alongside Melonie Diaz and Lupita Nyong’o in West Hollywood, California.

The British actress wore a Preen Resort 2014 dark ombré stained-effect floral-print dress featuring colourful stripes to add graphic appeal.

Some may be slightly disappointed by the moodiness of her brunch look, but I love the mix of colours, her support of a British brand and the season appropriateness of the look.

Christian Louboutin ‘Toboggan’ blue patent-leather open-toe sandals provided the finishing touch.
