Elle Fanning In Rodarte – 2013 Met Gala

Elle Fanning In Rodarte - 2013 Met Gala

Unlike her sister Dakota, who took a subtle approach to the night’s red carpet, Elle Fanning made quite a style statement at the Met Gala.

While her Rodarte tie-died swirl gown is decidedly more psychedelic than punk, it’s fun and youthful and a great choice for a 15-year-old on a red carpet.

And then there’s her makeup. The over-the-top winged navy and red eye shadow is the perfect match to the gown, and I definitely give her props for having fun with the theme, but is that actually punk? I’m not sure, but once again, you can’t fault a teenager for having a little fun on a night like tonight!

Are you liking Elle’s dramatic look, or is it too left field?

Dakota Fanning In Rodarte – 2013 Met Gala

Dakota Fanning In Rodarte - 2013 Met Gala

A very grown-up looking Dakota Fanning attended the Met Gala as a guest of Rodarte.

The actress looked beautiful in the sheer-paneled geometric gown, and by simply modifying the look to have a slightly higher v-neckline, she actually looks far more ladylike and graceful in the gown than the runway model.

She’s following the sideswept hair trend of the night, which, along with her black nails, is her nod to punk.

I think this is subtle and beautiful, and a total win. Do you like the look, or do you wish she’d taken a bigger risk?

Kerry Washington In Rodarte – 2013 SAG Awards

Kerry Washington In Rodarte - 2013 SAG Awards

Kerry Washington proved yet again that she knows how to rock the red carpet, as she did Sunday at the 2013 SAG Awards, held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Scandal’ actress, who continues to show that she looks good in everything from bright and patterned to soft and simple, wore a stunning gown from Rodarte.

The white gown was the perfect combination of soft and structured. The bodice, embellished with just the right amount of bling, complimented the soft gown complete with silver-lace detailing around the hemline and back of the dress.

She accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels, white python Christian Louboutin ‘Batignolles’ pumps and a metallic snake skin Judith Leiber clutch while her beauty choices were kept simple with a subtle smokey eye and sleek, pulled back hair.

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.
