Alexa Chung In Valentino – Valentino Garavani’s ‘Valentino: At the Emperor’s Table’ Book Launch Dinner Party

Alexa Chung In Valentino - Valentino Garavani's 'Valentino At the Emperor's Table' Book Launch Dinner Party

A dinner party was held at Christie’s in New York City on Saturday (November 8) to celebrate Valentino Garavani ‘s launch of his new book, ‘Valentino: At the Emperor’s Table’, hosted by Giancarlo Giammetti, Laura Paulson and Pedro Girao.

Alexa Chung was in attendance wearing a Valentino Resort 2015 short-sleeved dress with a lace overlay embroidered with colourful monkeys, which she styled with Louboutin pumps with a feisty studded toecap and a Marc Cross top-handle bag.

This is yet another ladylike offering which is worthy of admiration. The embroidery still hints at her cheeky side, while the styling showcases how much her style has evolved.

Can you not get that monkey off your back; are you having a case of deja vu? That’s because you may remember that Jena Malone wore this same dress sans lining last month.

Kiernan Shipka In Valentino – Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards

Kiernan Shipka In Valentino - Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards

Kiernan Shipka attended the Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards held at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre on Sunday (November 9) in Los Angeles, California.

As you know, the young actress is one of my favourites, but sadly, and for the first time in history, I couldn’t get behind this look.

The high neckline is too stuffy, and even as a print lover, there is way too much going on with this Valentino Resort 2015 frock – it’s almost an assault on the eyes.

I kinda see what she was going for, but even someone with her commanding presence couldn’t sell this to me.

This needed to stay on the pages of a look book.

Do you agree?

Marion Cotillard In Valentino – ‘Two Days, One Night’ AFI FEST 2014 Screening

Marion Cotillard In Valentino -  'Two Days, One Night' AFI FEST 2014 Screening

Marion Cotillard attended the screening of ‘Two Days, One Night’ during AFI FEST 2014 which was held at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday (November 7) in Hollywood, California.

What you are seeing is a rare sighting of the French beauty not wearing Dior.

Instead she wore a Valentino Spring 2015 pale-yellow pleated gown with a contrast collar and embroidered detailing.

The look is soft, elegant and so very chic with the retro ‘do and red lips, plus I feel this is refreshing, yet I would love to see Marion in something much edgier.

I think she would look great in Rodarte, Michael van der Ham or Giambattista Valli.

Anne Hathaway In Valentino – 2014 World Of Children Awards

Anne Hathaway In Valentino - 2014 World Of Children Awards

Anne Hathaway attended the 2014 World Of Children Awards held at 583 Park Avenue on Thursday (November 6) in New York City.

The actress was back in her favourite house – the Maison of Valentino, that is – wearing a leather mini dress from their Resort 2015 collection featuring a decorative laser-cut neckline accented with studded detailing.

We have seen Anne’s style take a more mature direction during her ‘Interstellar’ promo tour, with mostly underwhelming results, so how does this look fare?

For me, I have to say I like the look, even though I prefer the look book version.

I have a feeling some might be put off by this, deeming it too twee or a step back, but I think the contrast sheer yoke prevents that, giving the look an edge.

I would just question the necklace with that detailed neckline.

Jennifer Lopez In Emanuel Ungaro & Valentino – ‘True Love’ Book Tour

Jennifer Lopez In Emanuel Ungaro & Valentino - 'True Love' Book Tour

Jennifer Lopez was on the promo trail promoting her new book, ‘True Love’, with guest appearances on the ‘Today’ show and the Huffington Post in New York City on Tuesday (November 4).

The ‘Today’ Show: The ‘American Idol’ judge has been on a roll and that continued with this gorgeous aqua-blue Emanuel Ungaro high-neckline long-sleeved dress. The look is so chic and glamorous, with a daring high slit adding a touch of sex appeal. While I would perhaps lose the white Vince clutch, I love the gold accessories including the Hermes cuff, jewels and Louboutin pumps. This is what a true diva looks like.

Huffington Post: Jennifer’s second look of the day was a classic Valentino black frock featuring a red contrast collar with floral embellishments. The frock may be on the twee side for JLo, and better suited to Emma Stone or Hailee Steinfeld, yet I still find myself charmed by this look.

Suki Waterhouse In Valentino – Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

Suki Waterhouse In Valentino - Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

Suki Waterhouse attended the Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel on Tuesday (November 4) in London, England.

If you are anything like me, you have been longing for the moment this Valentino tulle gown hit the red carpet.

Even though Keira Knightley was the one on my wish list, along with Rose Byrne, I’m still swept away by the intelligent balance of elegance and whimsy.

The form-fitting shape of the bodice is married artfully with the sinuous swathes of fabric that render a voluminous skirt and a graceful silhouette. This is set off by quaint, playful embroidery throughout, inspired by nature and finished sublimely.

I just wish Suki had swept her hair back on this occasion.
