Jenna Elfman In Rodarte – ‘1600 Penn’ White House Screening

Jenna Elfman In Rodarte - ‘1600 Penn’ White House Screening

Stars of the new NBC show ‘1600 Penn’ were spotted posing for pictures outside the White House before enjoying a special screening with President Obama in Washington, D.C. last week before his inauguration.

Jenna Elfman looked event- and weather-appropriate, wearing a simple black sheath dress under her Rodarte Fall 2012 black-and-orange woven coat with a shearling collar.

This look precedes Katy Perry’s outing wearing the same coat earlier this week, which by coincidence was also when going to see President Obama in Washington, D.C.

Jenna styled her look with a white Victoria Beckham zipper clutch and Jimmy Choo ‘Vero’ bi-colour white-and-black pumps with a gold trim (first worn by Gwyneth Paltrow).

Again, I ask, when did white pumps become so popular again?

Katy Perry In Rodarte – Ceremonial Inauguration For U.S. President Barack Obama

Katy Perry In Rodarte - Ceremonial Inauguration For US President Barack Obama

Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z weren’t the only celebs attending the 57th Presidential Inaugural Address today in Washington, D.C.

Katy Perry and John Mayer were spotted in the crowd too.

The singer wore a Rodarte Fall 2012 orange-and-black woven coat with a shearling collar, which she wore with a rust-and-black sequined tulle collared dress from the same collection.

Many of you have said that you believed that Beyonce was overdressed to sing the national anthem, so I would be interested to hear your thoughts on Katy’s bedazzled dress for this daytime event where she wasn’t performing.

The coat is event appropriate, but I can’t help but feel like this gorgeous dress is wasted under her coat.

Hopefully we will see her captured at another event during the day sans coat.

Katy styled her look with a black felt hat, Jimmy Choo ‘Titan’ boots and a Christian Louboutin ‘Farida’ bag, which has also been favoured by January Jones, Miranda Kerr and Rachel Weisz.

Cate Blanchett In Rodarte – ‘Life of PI’ Dubai Film Festival Premiere & Opening Gala

Speaking of regal beauties at the ‘Life of Pi’ opening gala screening – held on day one of the Dubai lnternational Film Festival at the Madinat Jumeirah Complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on Sunday evening – Cate Blanchett joined Frieda Pinto in dropping jaws in awe on the red carpet.

There was a brief moment where we feared our Queen had lost her way, but she was firmly back on course wearing this stunning Rodarte Spring 2013 gown.

Her dusty-blue drop-shoulder silk gown with burnt-orange panels at the waist and floaty chiffon skirt has us bowing down saying “we are not worthy”.

Thankfully, she removed the chain accent and burnt orange hot-pants, taking away the edge and softening the look.

What was a daring look on the runway has been transformed into an ethereal, sophisticated look which is already in contention for BDOTW.

Soft, complexion-enhancing makeup, a silver watch, stud earrings, Jimmy Choo heels and a simple updo completed her look.

Scarlett Johansson In Rodarte – ‘Hitchcock’ New York Premiere

Scarlett Johansson gave us a new look on the red carpet in New York last night for the ‘Hitchcock’ premiere, which was held at the Ziegfeld Theater.

She wore a Rodarte Spring 2013 dress, opting to wear the black-and-green ivy-trellis-printed dress without the printed turtleneck.

Scarjo’s strapless dress was styled with black Gucci peep-toe booties and a dramatic deep-red lip colour.

I really tried to force myself to like this look, but I can’t.

The shoes are the worst offender, making her legs look very stumpy, and the edgy dress doesn’t suit her classic style.

I would’ve loved to have seen this look on someone like Emma Stone or Leighton Meester.

Alicia Vikander In Rodarte – ‘Anna Karenina’ LA Premiere

Alicia Vikander joined Keira Knightley on the red carpet last night for the ‘Anna Karenina’ LA premiere held at the ArcLight Hollywood in California.

She wasn’t left in the shade by her more famous co-star, because she was radiant wearing a Rodarte Fall 2011 gown.

The green and grey metallic lace and tulle long-sleeve gown with an open back was styled with a simple black Kotur clutch.

She opted to go light on her makeup, going for a fresh-faced look, a simple bun and no jewels.

Alicia is already on my one-to-watch list.

Leslie Mann In Rodarte – 8th Annual Pink Party

Leslie Mann attended the 8th Annual Pink Party to benefit the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program at Barkar Hangar Santa Monica Airport in California on Saturday.

The last time Leslie wore a Rodarte dress we didn’t quite connect with the look, but on this occasion the actress wore a dress from the Fall 2012 collection which was more in tune with her style.

Her maroon flutter sleeve dress, with black and white polka dots, had a lace neckline and a tiered ruffled skirt which was the perfect look for her girlie feminine style.

A side ponytail and nude glossy lips completed the look.

Much improved or do you still not buy Leslie as a Rodarte girl?

Leslie Mann In Rodarte – Teen Vogue’s 10th Anniversary Annual Young Hollywood Party

Leslie Mann rocked quite a different look on the red carpet at Teen Vogue’s 10th Anniversary Young Hollywood party in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday evening.

She rocked a bold Rodarte Fall 2012 floral dress.

This sleeveless black-and-red floral jacquard A-line dress with a sharp pointed collar is a huge departure from the uber-girlie dresses we are used to seeing from Leslie.

She spoiled me so much with a succession of colourful looks this summer that I’m not sure how I feel about this darker look.

What I do know is I don’t like her clunky Rodarte footwear.

A slicked-back side-parted ponytail and a copper lip colour completed her look.

Yay or nay?

Kirsten Dunst In Rodarte – 2012 Met Gala

Kirsten Dunst attended the 2012 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City this evening.

The actress doesn’t surprise us by wearing a custom Rodarte look.

I love that she went for something different. One can get tired of seeing a succession of similar strapless gowns hit the red carpet at these events.

Her pumpkin-and-cream wool crepe double lapel jacket accented with a thick black leather belt was teamed with a pumpkin wool and floral lace gown.

I hope we get to see the look sans jacket at some point, because the lace part looks enticing.

Like many others at this event, Kirsten opted for a retro wavy hairdo.
