Lucy Liu In Thakoon – Good Morning America

Lucy Liu joins Rashida Jones, Florence Welch and Beyonce Knowles in sporting bold, daring prints this week.

The actress was spotted on her way to the ABC studios in New York City, for a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ to talk about her role in ‘Southland’ where she sheds her glamour girl image to play a cop.

She looked lovely, as always, wearing a Thakoon Spring 2012 dress.

The Indian-inspired printed dress was teamed with a beige coat and matching YSL sandals.

It’s interesting how we have three different versions of one dress on this post.

The runway version has a slightly different print to Lucy’s dress. The dress on Net-A-Porter has the same print as Lucy’s dress, but her dress doesn’t have the gold lamé hem.

If I purchased this dress I wouldn’t cut off the gold hem, as it is very much an integral part of the overall piece, but I understand why it may have seemed too much for a morning talk show.

Rashida Jones In Thakoon – ‘Watch What Happens Live’

On Monday, Rashida Jones joined John Slattery on the couch for ‘Watch What Happens Live’ hosted by Andy Cohen.

The actress, who’s promoting the fourth season of her NBC hit show ‘Parks and Recreation’, wore a Thakoon Spring 2012 look.

Her crepe de chine button-front sleeveless shirt dress in a bold paisley print was teamed with red Giuseppe Zanotti ankle-strap pumps.

A lot of people would be scared to don such a bold print, or they would seek to tone it down with black pumps, but as we know from the Independent Spirit Awards and the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala, Rashida isn’t afraid of prints.

The bolder the better appears to be her motto.

Nicole Richie In Thakoon – Extra

Nicole Richie visited the set of ‘Extra’ to promote her new television show, ‘Fashion Star’, on Friday.

The designer looked very stylish wearing a Thakoon Spring 2012 leather dress.

Her orange leather dress with a notched neck and gathered skirt also has a nipped-in waist, but she gave the look an urban twist by adding an Etro print belt.

Nicole is rarely seen without any of her self-designed pieces, so she added House of Harlow 1960 ‘Leigh’ pumps to her look.

Statement rings and a deep berry lip shade provided the finishing touches.

I love everything about this look excluding her hair.

It looks like it needs a treatment.

Christina Ricci In Jenny Packham – ‘Bel Ami’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

If you heard a loud thud. That was my chin hitting the floor.

I’m at loss for words to describe how devastatingly; drop-dead-gorgeous Christina Ricci looked tonight whilst taking the red carpet for the ‘Bel Ami’ Berlinale Film Festival premiere in Germany this evening.

She wore a Jenny Packham soft blue and nude sequin column gown.

The gown is relatively simple and would make anyone look beautiful, but it’s that extra 100% that Christina always gives on the red carpet to make this look outstanding.

As always, we are not worthy.

Christina wore her hair back in a low bun, carried a gold clutch and wore a Pomellato ‘Tango’ white topaz and brown diamond ring to complete her look.

Megan Fox In Thakoon – “Friends With Kids” Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Megan Fox attended the Toronto Film Festival “Friends With Kids” Premiere at the Ryerson Theatre on Friday with husband Brian Austin Green.

The actress wore a red strapless Thakoon Resort 2012 mini dress.

I’m thankful for slight modification on the hemline and the removal of the floral detail on bodice.

She spiced up her look with white leopard print Brian Atwood ‘Zenith’ heels, black and tan Christian Louboutin clutch and gold David Webb ring.

Her look was completed with glossy, wavy hair, slightly smoky eyes and MEUS Designs jewels.

Who Wore Thakoon Addition Better? Liv Tyler and Rebecca Romijn

Liv Tyler attended a screening of her movie “Super” back in March wearing a Thakoon Addition dress.

The actress paired her royal blue, floral and polka-dot printed dress with a black blazer, black tights, Roger Vivier blue velvet heels and a black Lanvin ‘Happy Mini Pop’ bag.

I love how she made such a summery dress evening appropriate by teaming it with dark, sophisticated accessories. She strikes the balance between casual and chic perfectly and shows us how to take a daytime look into the night. Fresh makeup and loose wavy hair completes her look.

Rebecca Romijn took a more understated approach earlier this month when she wore the same silk-chiffon dress to attend the launch of “Just Fabulous” in West Hollywood.

The actress added only a pair of tan, strappy wedges and a row of bracelets to her outfit. She also kept her hair and makeup simple too, opting to pin back her fringe and add a touch of pink lipgloss.

When comparing this look against Liv’s, I do wish there was something more going on. Even though Rebecca’s look is more summery, I think she could have made just a bit more effort by choosing an interesting shoe or adding a fun bag or some pretty jewelry to liven up her look. It just feels a little too plain for my taste.

My vote is definitely going to Liv. She wins for her ability to make this dress look incredibly chic and cool.

Net-A-Porter US.
