Katherine Jenkins In Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2013 - Royal Ascot

Katherine Jenkins made a brilliantly bold entrance today at the Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse in England.

The singer was a vision in a vibrantly hued, colour-blocked dress from Roksanda Ilincic’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The hot orange and pink shades were mirrored in the impressively artistic Philip Treacy fascinator, which topped off this frock with a grand flourish.

While the rationale behind her nude Anya Hindmarch ‘Seymour’ clutch was probably to avoid distracting from her strong look, the opposite effect seemed to happen, as I found myself focusing on the odd-colour-out.

With her vivid Dayglo hues, Katherine smartly wore a daintier sandal and kept her makeup rather neutral, while slicking her hair into a simple updo.

You may recall that Naomie Harris wore this dress earlier this year, styled to much different effect.

Roksanda Ilincic Celebrates Resort 2014 Collection

Roksanda Ilincic presented her Resort 2014 Collection with a cocktail party held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday evening.

The Serbian-born London-based designer already has legions of celebrity fans (plus the First Lady and Prime Minister’s wife). She was on hand to guide Hollywood stars through her most recent collection so they could make their picks for their next event before anyone else.

Louise Roe: The British TV host is a girl after my own heart. She loves colour, prints and shoes that don’t fall into uninspiring territory. Her pretty pink mini dress from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection featuring an interesting floral print was styled with Monika Chiang gold ankle-strap pumps. Head to toe, j’adore.

Julianne Hough: The actress wore an incredibly chic Roksanda Ilincic colour-block patchwork boucle wool dress from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection. She may be the shortest of the pack, but the punchy colours make her stand out.

Roksanda Ilincic: The designer herself looked just as good as her guests, wearing a black-and-blue ensemble with a ‘Dayton’ contrast collar top and vibrant blue-hued ‘Brooke’ skirt from her Spring 2013 collection. Those gold-and-black t-bar pumps have me gasping for air.

Ashley Madekwe: The actress also opted for a Spring 2013 look, wearing Oste crepe black orange-collared jumpsuit which she styled without the white top it was presented with on the runway. Needless to say this jumpsuit has been in my wishlist since hitting Net-A-Porter.com.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: Of all the attendees at the event, Mary is the one who has worn Roksanda’s beautiful designs on more than one occasion. She accessorized her pale-pink Fall 2013 strapless dress with a black patent-leather waistband, Joe’s ‘Ollie’ canvas black pumps, a matching pink Nancy Gonzalez crocodile box clutch, Aprillah earrings, and rings by Elahn and Soffer Ari, styling her look with a chic updo and a bright fuchsia-pink lip colour. Had she opted for black sandals this look would have been perfection.

Who catches your eye from this beautifully styled, colourful group of ladies?

Jessica Biel In Roksanda Ilincic - Le Grand Journal

Mr. and Mrs. Timberlake were spotted leaving the studios of Le Grand Journal in Cannes, France earlier today.

This follows Justin’s premiere for ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ last night, where the Balenciaga clad actor was joined by his co-star Carey Mulligan in Vionnet, and his wife in Marchesa.

Opting for a more low key look today, Justin wore Dior Homme grey wool Prince of Wales check two-button notch lapel sport jacket, white shirt, black pants and Christian Louboutin ‘Platers’ lace up shoes, while Jessica opted for a more colourful look.

She wore a simple yet striking design from the Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2013 collection.

I love how the monochrome palette is punctuated with tangerine accents for an impactful look.

Her calf-skimming design was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘June’ pointy slingbacks from the Spring 2013 collection, a half up, half down hair style, a yellow-and-white Fendi clutch and shades.

Alice Eve In  Roksanda Ilincic - ‘Star Trek Into The Darkness’ Mexico Press Conference

Alice Eve joined her ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ co-star Zoe Saldana for the photocall of their new movie in Mexico City on Monday.

The British actress wore a tri-colour Roksanda Ilincic saffron, white and black dress from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection.

I love the summery hue of the dress and the simple styling, which included metallic-silver pointy pumps. This is far from an easy look to pull off as it is quite an unusual silhouette; however, I think Alice works the look well even though I am not crazy about the dress.

The bangs are back; this time they are sweeping to one side, framing her face nicely.

A dark manicure and a rouge lip colour completed her look.

Rita Ora In Roksanda Ilincic - British Designers' Collective

Rita Ora shockingly took her look from loud and daring to positively demure when she hosted the ‘Future Vintage’ launch for the annual British Designers’ Collective boutique at Bicester Village in England yesterday.

The British songstress covered up in a structured, fire-engine-red Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2012 ‘Izumi’ dress with contrasting navy-blue cuffs that reminded me of wrist ‘peplums.’

However, the sophisticated silhouette was slightly compromised by her styling.

The playful, white-and-yellow Nicholas Kirkwood sandals seemed out of place, while a big, bold pair of canary-yellow gemstone earrings almost commanded more attention than the dress.

Rita thankfully wasn’t wearing a wig, but her root-showing strands that were teased into a mussed-up semi-pompadour didn’t exactly match the polish of the dress.

You may remember that Princess Beatrice and Marisa Tomei trotted out the ivory and blue version of this design within days of each other last summer.

Judging by who has worn it, the dress obviously has wide-ranging appeal.
