Rachel McAdams In Self-Portrait – ‘Aloha’ LA Screening

Rachel McAdams In Self-Portrait -  'Aloha' LA Screening
Rachel McAdams returned to the red carpet for the ‘Aloha’ screening at The London West Hollywood in West Hollywood, California on Wednesday (May 27).

It’s been some time since we’ve seen the actress, which makes me all the more happy to see her looking as charming as ever in a Self-Portrait Fall 2015 navy and teal ensemble popped with a bright fuchsia lip.

Directional yet darling, the look boasted both the suggestive allure of the netted crop top and the feminine architecture of the skirt.

Black Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps were undeniably selected in recognition of the black piping on the skirt, although a matching blue shoe would have functioned just as well.

Were you happy with her return appearance?

Reese Witherspoon In Self-Portrait – Communities In Schools Of Los Angeles Annual Gala

Reese Witherspoon In Self-Portrait - Communities In Schools Of Los Angeles Annual Gala
Reese Witherspoon attended the Communities In Schools Of Los Angeles Annual Gala on Monday (May 18) in Pacific Palisades, California.

Posing with honoree Shannon Rotenberg, Executive Director of JK Livin’ Foundation, Reese stood out in a Self-Portrait Spring 2014 frock with dimensional lace embroidery.

It was delightful to see her in this sublime shade of sky-blue, but something was keeping me from fully loving this look.

The charm was there, but perhaps it trended too far on the side of twee for the actress. The structured blue collar also served more as an odd distraction than anything else.

Maybelline New York’s 100 Year Anniversary

Maybelline New York's 100 Year Anniversary

Maybelline New York celebrated its 100th anniversary on Thursday (May 14) at the IAC Building in New York City.

Gigi Hadid: The model is having quite a moment in culture right now and seems to be poised to be the next big thing in the modeling world. As such, she chose a very sophisticated look with this striped Balmain skirt and long coat combo. By belting the coat and eliminating the bright belt seen on the runway, Gigi looks the very essence of ‘major model’–very few other people could pull off cinching that much fabric at the waist and still looking chic and svelte. A high-drama cat eye and sleek updo were perfectly paired.

Jourdan Dunn: Opting for a more summery, carefree approach to fashion, Jourdan’s white cut-out Self-Portrait dress is fun and perky, and does a masterful job of showing us all exactly why Jourdan has the job she does (That gorgeous skin! Those legs!). I love that she went monochrome with the white pumps, and her barely there makeup and wavy bob are delightful.

The Paley Center For Media Hosts A Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television

The Paley Center For Media Hosts A Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television

The Paley Center for Media hosted a tribute to African-American achievements in television on Wednesday (May 13) at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

Kerry Washington: The ‘Scandal’ actress, who has been on a roller coaster ride of red carpet hits and misses, relied on the ubiquitous see-through trend to get by at the event. The netted Self-Portrait black frock was a more vampy entrance for Kerry, so I’m glad she completely embraced it with an oxblood lip.

Gabrielle Union: Significantly sunnier, Gabrielle’s Rosie Assoulin yellow frock was a delightfully radiant colour for her, although I wish the top half of the dress fit a bit more seamlessly. She accessorized the look with Nikos Koulis jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti embellished black heels.

2015 BAFTA TV Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 BAFTA TV Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more red carpet looks at the 2015 BAFTA TV Awards held at Theatre Royal on Sunday (May 10) in London, England. Here are just a few.

Pixie Lott: The British singer stood out wearing an alluring Blumarine blue navy macramé lace gown.

Emma Willis: The TV presenter opted for something both chic and modern wearing a Roland Mouret ‘Shotwick’ jumpsuit which you may remember has been previous worn by Kate Hudson and Jessica Simpson. The styling is impeccable.  I wish Pixie had also opted for a colour-popping clutch.

Lucy Hale In Self-Portrait – mark. Spring Beauty Collection Launch

Lucy Hale In Self-Portrait - mark Spring Beauty Collection Launch

In her ambassador role, Lucy Hale helped launch mark. Spring Beauty Collection at The London Hotel, on Wednesday (April 8) in West Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a Self-Portrait ‘Lila’ midi dress, combing sheer mesh and a transparent lace in a sweet, ultra feminine way, with the black trims adding a touch of modernity, allowing her black Gianvito Rossi pumps to be incorporated seamlessly.

The sheer trend may have been overplayed, but when presented so flawlessly and effortlessly like this you’ll get no complaints from me.
