Best Dressed Of The Week – Lupita Nyong’o In Ralph Lauren & Calvin Klein Collection and Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna Couture

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lupita Nyong'o In Ralph Lauren & Calvin Klein Collection and Chris Pine In Ermenegildo Zegna Couture2

You know you are a fashion force to be reckoned with when on a best-dressed poll the only person you are in competition with is yourself. That is what happened this week when Lupita Nyong’o’s Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein Collection looks ended up first and second place.

The majority of you picked Lupita’s Ralph Lauren Golden Globes gown. I also loved this look, but my favourite was the Calvin Klein Collection custom gown.

The Ralph Lauren look had too much of a Gwyneth Paltrow/Zhang Ziyi déjà vu-ness about it, which lost it half a point.

However, don’t be surprised if the Ralph Lauren ends up in my BDOTY list ahead of the CK, because that cape is clearly the more memorable ‘I’ve really arrived’ look.

When it came to the fellas there was no such dilemma. It was Team Chris Pine all the way; he took looking devilishly handsome, in a classic Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit, to a whole new level.

Chris Pine In Ralph Lauren Purple Label – ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’

Chris Pine In Ralph Lauren Purple Label - 'Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit'

Chris Pine, my best-dressed male from the Golden Globe Awards, was back out on the red carpet again last night (January 15) attending the premiere for his latest flick ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ held at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Smouldering, as he does, the actor turned to one of his preferred labels, Ralph Lauren Purple Label, for his suit.

The label may have been purple, but the two-button suit was black, styled with a crisp white open shirt and matching pocket square.

Max Verre black lace up wingtip shoes and a David Yurman silver pink ring rounded out his look.

It’s a simple ready-in-5 look, which solidifies that he is currently one of the best-dressed men to hit the red carpet.

Lupita Nyong’o In Ralph Lauren – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Lupita Nyong’o In Ralph Lauren - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Lupita Nyong’o was a vision in red at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday (January 12).

The ’12 Years a Slave’ star and supporting actress nominee has also emerged as a new fashion ‘it’ girl, and she didn’t disappoint tonight.

Her off-the-shoulder Ralph Lauren red silk cady cape dress from the Spring 2014 runway had all the drama for which I had hoped—even though I couldn’t help but think of Gwyneth Paltrow’s similar Tom Ford white cape-dress wow moment at the 2012 Oscars.

A few well-placed Fred Leighton jewels, including sparkling stud earrings and cocktail rings, rounded out the look, as a necklace would have ruined the effect.

While I loved the metallic gold eye shadow and the subtle punch of a violet liner under her eyes, not to mention the classic red lip, the more questionable ‘Grace Jones’-inspired ’do also made a repeat appearance.

Did Lupita’s look live up to your expectations?

Camilla Belle In Ralph Lauren – Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Camilla Belle looked breathtaking at the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California.

While I’m not usually a fan of these kinds of shapeless gowns, it’s both the electric-blue hue of her Ralph Lauren Spring 2014 frock and the way she carried herself which essentially won me over – plus the elegant collection of Van Cleef and Arpels jewels also played its part.

A pretty pink lip colour and sexy cat eyes completed her look.

Margot Robbie In Ralph Lauren – Good Morning America

Margot Robbie In Ralph Lauren - Good Morning America

Margot Robbie continued promoting her new movie, ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ with guest appearances on ‘Good Morning America’ and MTV in New York City on Thursday (December 19).

The Australian actress has been having quite an impressive run; yet she’s only been promoting the movie less than a week.

On this occasion she opted for a monochrome look wearing a Ralph Lauren Spring 2014 ensemble consisting of a black peplum top with white cuffs and a Peter Pan collar, styled black fitted pants and black Casadei pumps.

For some reason I am likening her to Emma Stone’s. I think it’s because they possess a similar sense of style; classic with a sense of youthfulness, elegance and effortlessness, plus there is that instant likability factor.

Kim Basinger In Ralph Lauren Collection – ‘Grudge Match’ New York Screening

Kim Basinger In Ralph Lauren Collection - 'Grudge Match' New York ScreeningKim Basinger attended the ‘Grudge Match’ New York screening on Monday (December 16), which was held at the Ziegfeld Theater.

Perhaps taking her film’s hardcore, fight-club edge as inspiration, the actress stepped out in an Ralph Lauren Collection three-piece navy and cream pinstripe suit.

Opting to up the mannish ante of her tailored ensemble even more, she paired the suit with a baby-blue striped button-down along with a navy printed tie. The visible chain of a pocket watch served as her jewelry.

Kim completed the effect with spit-slick locks, tied into a low ponytail, along with the punch of a bold, ruby-red lip. Go big or go home was obviously her mantra for the evening, as she fully embraced a top-to-toe modish-masculine aesthetic.

Are you embracing this look as a knockout success, or is it just too costume-y for comfort?
