Kasia Smutniak In Valentino – Cinema Italian Style 2013 – ‘The Great Beauty’ Opening Night Premiere

Kasia Smutniak In Valentino - Cinema Italian Style 2013 -'The Great Beauty'

Kasia Smutniak took her impeccable style to Hollywood as she attended the Cinema Italian Style 2013 ‘The Great Beauty’ opening-night premiere held at the Egyptian Theatre in California yesterday evening.

Being the great Valentino brand ambassador that she is, the actress wore a beautiful cap-sleeved sheer chiffon Valentino Resort 2014 gown featuring a high round neck, flutter sleeves, an A-line waist and intricate floral embroidery and beaded embellishment throughout in a neon-yellow hue.

I must admit I thought this was Keira Knightley when I first saw this picture; like Keira, Kasia and Valentino are a match made in fashion heaven.

Pink lips, a simple silver bracelet and a centre-parted bun completed her look.

Her long-sleeved sheer tulle floor-length gown featuring a high neck, A-line waist, pleating at the front and back, and colourful embroidery throughout was styled with Christian Louboutin blue python pumps and a black Jimmy Choo clutch.

With parts of her hair pulled back and the rest left wavy, she completed her look with a nude lip colour and diamond Kwiat earrings.

Vogue NO.100 Night In Beijing

Vogue NO 100 Night In Beijing

The glamour was on full display at Tuesday’s Vogue NO. 100 Night in Beijing. Here’s a look at who wore what for the evening’s festivities.

Shu Qi: The actress wore an embellished Hugo Boss Fall 2013 gown with its statement hardware belt, styling it with a slicked-back bun and minimalist drop earrings. While this dress was previously worn by Jourdan Dunn, it could almost be mistaken as two very different looks, don’t you think?

Du Juan: The model-actress stepped out in a floor-length, sleeveless Valentino Resort 2014 dress that featured all-over floral embroidery. Her pin-straight locks and red lip completed the look.

Liu Zi: Clad in a wine-red Emporio Armani Fall 2013 number, Liu Zi showed off the dress’s one sleeve on, one sleeve off detail, along with its almost cumbersome voluminous shape. She paired the look with a black-and-gold clutch and a gold collar statement necklace.

Qin Shupei: The lanky model chose a strapless LWD with floral-embroidered waist detail from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 collection, which she complemented with a red lip, white pumps, and a simple double-strand silver necklace.

Li Feier: By choosing a floor-skimming white lace Dolce & Gabbana number, Li looked mermaid-like and ethereal. She accessorized with a white clutch, gold cuff, and a skinny tiara.

Emma Pei: The model evoked quite the 1920s flapper vibe in her Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 look, consisting of a silver-sequin, black-button vest top layered over a black velvet dress. A gold-plated black clutch, black sandals, and barely-there makeup were her final touches.

Haden Kuo: The actress wore a sleeveless, floor-length, gold Andrew Gn Fall 2013 dress with black lace overlay, pairing it with her long wavy locks to finish.

Ge Huijie: The model selected one of the dramatic mesh-and-feathered dresses from the Gucci Fall 2013 lineup. The eye-catching points didn’t stop there, though. She styled her dress with sheer black tights, holographic sandals, a grey clutch, hoop earrings, and a matte red lip.

American Ballet Theatre 2013 Opening Night Fall Gala

American Ballet Theatre 2013 Opening Night Fall Gala

Crystal Renn wasn’t the only one to make a glamorous entrance at the American Ballet Theatre 2013 Opening Night Fall Gala. The event, which was held at the David Koch Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening, saw its red carpet adorned with many glamorous gowns. Here’s a look at the rest of the attendees.

Jessica Stam: The model walked the red carpet in a long-sleeved black Valentino Fall 2013 gown with a pointed white collar. While the neckline may seem a little buttoned-up, the all-over floral embroidery, which even found its way along the sheer bodice and sleeves, gave the dress a light, airy-fairy quality. Perhaps taking cues from said mood, Jessica wore muted makeup and her hair in a sweet schoolgirl-esque braided updo.

Sigourney Weaver: Going the overtly eye-catching route, the actress donned a green sequined Badgley Mischka gown that — long sleeves aside — showed off a little more skin, thanks to its plunging wrap-front style. Sigourney kept her hair casual, only a pair of delicate gold earrings to this already very sparkly look.

Nicky Hilton: The socialite may have a thing for Valentino gowns, and that’s not a bad thing. This time around, she chose a pointed-collar, blue-on-nude lace Valentino Fall 2013 creation, which she paired with a matching jeweled blue Valentino clutch. To complement the dress’s elegance, she wore her hair swept back and went with thick black eye-liner.

Crystal Renn In Valentino – American Ballet Theatre 2013 Opening Night Fall Gala

Crystal Renn In Valentino - American Ballet Theatre 2013 Opening Night Fall Gala

The one thing Crystal Renn knows how to do is make a dramatic entrance on the red carpet, which was very much the case at the American Ballet Theatre 2013 Opening Night Fall Gala held at David Koch Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

Now this Valentino Pre-Fall red-lace long-sleeve gown with intricate beadwork might be considered tame in comparison to the structural, more complicated Zac Posen gowns she tends to favour, but I’m bowled over by her bold yet minimal look styled with a silver clutch.

Dramatic winged eyeliner and shiny black hair in skinny looped braids add to the dramatic nature of this look.

Alexa Chung In Valentino – ‘It By Alexa Chung’ Book Launch

Alexa Chung In Valentino - 'It By Alexa Chung' Book Launch

Alexa Chung attended her ‘It by Alexa Chung’ book launch in New York City yesterday, showing off yet another dark floral look.

She donned a short floral Valentino Fall 2013 frock with contrasting white collar and cuffs, and paired it with black tights and black Louis Vuitton bow-front pumps. As per usual, Alexa wore her signature cat-eye and her hair very casually — this time, partially pulled back.

If you feel like you’re having dress déjà vu, you may remember that Anna Dello Russo wore this same dress during Paris Fashion Week.
