amfAR’s Inspiration Gala

Here are the rest of the looks from yesterday evening’s amfAR’s Inspiration Gala, held at Milk Studios in California.

Kristin Davis: You pretty much know what you’re going to get from a Kristin Davis look: a pretty fit-and-flare dress. It’s a formula which has worked so well for her in the past and this vintage Lanvin midnight-blue dress with an ivory slash across the bodice proves that the formula still works. Navy Christian Louboutin sandals and a silver clutch completed her look.

Octavia Spencer: Award season may be over, but Octavia’s love for Tadashi Shoji continues. The Oscar-winning actress looked stunning wearing a custom black-and-nude lace-embroidered dress with an on-trend peplum detail. Black accessories and silver jewels completed her look.

Rumer Willis: The actress donned a cute Alice + Olivia dress with a nude bodice decorated with black sequins and a poufy A-line skirt. Black glitter YSL Tribute sandals and a silver clutch with crystal embellishments accessorized her look. I wish Rumer had opted for softer makeup for this look. The heavy kohl-rimmed eyes and bright red lips don’t work for me with this dainty look.

Cat Deeley In Tadashi Shoji – Audi Kick Off Emmy Week 2012 Party

Cat Deeley looked lovely as she took to the red carpet for the Audi Kick Off Emmy Week 2012 Party at Cecconi’s Restaurant on Sunday in LA.

The ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ host wore a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2012 dress.

I love that this red Chantilly lace cocktail dress, featuring a tiered pleated silk skirt and cap sleeves, is a step outside her neutral-loving colour palette.

I’m also glad she shortened the dress which she complemented with a rich red lip shade and Christian Louboutin for Michael van der Ham Fall 2012 printed platform sandals.

Signature enviable free-flowing golden tresses completed her look.

2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards Red Carpet Round Up

Here are the rest of the looks which hit the red carpet on Saturday evening at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

Jennifer Morrison: The actress would have stood out more than most wearing a vibrant red Romona Keveza Spring 2012 silk/chiffon gown with a plunging neckline. A black Daniel Swarovski ‘Gala’ clutch with silver crystal border and a hot red lip colour to match her dress completed her look.

Brenda Strong: The ‘Dallas’ actress shimmered down the red carpet looking sensational wearing a Marc Bouwer gown with bold shoulders and silver sequin details throughout. Slightly surprised by the nude sandals and the contrasting gold clutch, but it’s a stunning look nonetheless.

Padma Lakshmi: The TV host looked stunning wearing a Zuhair Murad Spring 2012 sheer black gown with an embroidered floral detail and a corseted back. She wisely let the gown do all the talking.

Julia Ormond: The ‘Mad Men’ actress opted for a red David Meister signature gown with a cowl-neckline which she styled with a gold python Devi Kroell large Mercer clutch and matching strappy sandals. I love the statement earrings and the side-swept wavy locks.

Tadashi Shoji Spring 2013

Tadashi Shoji took us on a journey along the Modern Silk Road, where East meets West, for his Spring 2013 collection.

The designer, who has successfully dressed many Oscar-winning actresses, started the show with elegant day dresses in his favourite fabric: lace.

On a warm colour palette of paprika, desert, lavender with a selection of blues ranging from lagoon to china to ocean alongside classic black looks, we saw many dresses destined for the red carpet.

Cocktail dresses with Peter Pan collars, pencil dresses, trapeze dresses, long-sleeve gowns, strapless gowns, caplet gowns and tiered tulle gowns were just a few of the highlights, with the colourful piecework and ikat-print dresses requiring a second look.

Favourites: Pale iris ikat-print gazar strapless pleated dress and the floral appliqué spaghetti strap slip gown.

Front Row: Angela Simmons, June Ambrose, Daisy Fuentes

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Elizabeth Banks, Fan Bingbing, Berenice Marlohe, Mena Suvari, Octavia Spencer, Florence Welch, Kate Beckinsale, Cat Deeley, Taylor Swift and Emily Blunt

Brenda Strong In Tadashi Shoji – Channel 5 ‘Dallas’ Launch Party

Brenda Strong joined Jordana Brewster on the red carpet for Channel 5’s launch party for ‘Dallas’ at Old Billingsgate Market in London yesterday evening.

The former ‘Desperate Housewives’ actress, who joins this cast as Ann Ewing – Bobby’s third wife – wore a Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 dress for the occasion.

Her flirty sleeveless black-and-nude chiffon-lace dress with banded waistline was styled with black B Brian Atwood chain-fringe platform sandals which remind of a similar pair by Nicholas Kirkwood.

An embellished Swarovski clutch, which sparkled as brightly as her Swarovski jewels, accessorized her look.

Dark red lippie and a wavy bob provided the finishing touches.
