Elizabeth Olsen In Valentino – 2012 Grand Chefs Dinner

Elizabeth Olsen made a long-awaited return to the red carpet at the 2012 Grand Chefs Dinner at Gotham Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

She made a big impact wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 gown.

This long-sleeve silk-chiffon gown is stunning, but that black bag from The Row is burning my eyes.

I get that she wants to rep her sisters’ brand on the red carpet, but may I suggest they start carrying one of their smaller clutches.

I mean what an eyesore against those beautiful tiered ruffles.

This look would’ve benefited from an updo too.

Alessandra Mastronardi In Valentino – ‘To Rome With Love’ Rome Premiere

Alessandra Mastronardi joined Penelope Cruz on the red carpet for the world premiere of ‘To Rome With Love’ at Auditorium Parco Della Musica in Rome, Italy, on Friday night.

She was elegance personified wearing a Valentino Spring 2012 gown.

Her powder-pink multi-layered tulle gown with with puffed long sleeves is embroidered with neon-pink-and-black contrast lace which make the gown so romantic and heavenly.

I actually prefer this look to Penelope’s red-carpet look.

It’s funny how nearly everyone who wears a look from this collection opts for a braided hairdo.

Alessandra completed her look with a black, white and gold Bulgari clutch, a silver belt and ruby drop earrings.

If you could pick one look from this premiere to go into the BDOTW poll, who would you choose?

Alessandra or Penelope?

31st Hong Kong Film Awards Red Carpet Round Up

Here we have the rest of the looks from the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards which took place in Hong Kong last night.

Gao Yuanyuan: The stunning actress wore an Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 nude gown with beautiful lace embroidered details. Her sleeveless, high-neck gown was teamed with a silver Bottega Veneta clutch. This gown is divine. I’m delighted that the colour doesn’t wash her out because she’s radiant. Side-swept locks and silver jewels completed her look.

Lun-mei Guey: The actress was also beautiful in blue wearing a Bottega Veneta Spring 2012 gown. Her layered silk-chiffon gown with black silk-chiffon underlayers was teamed with sapphire earrings and blue heels.

Hailu Qin: I love Hailu Qin’s summery Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 strapless gown. A stunning statement necklace provided an interesting contrast to her sweet floral-print gown.

Michelle Chen: The actress wore a Valentino Resort 2012 strapless gown which shimmered on the red carpet due to its intricate embroidered details. Her jewelry was kept simple in order for her gown to be the main focus of her look.

Valentino Rodeo Drive Boutique Opening

It was a very busy red carpet last night at the new Valentino Rodeo Drive boutique as celebs gathered to celebrate the flagship opening.

Ciara: I just can’t get past that hair. I mean really?

Teresa Palmer: The Australian actress opted for a sexy red leather Valentino strapless dress with a rose detail on the waist. Nude accessories including a Valentino bow clutch completed her look.

Isabelle Fuhrman: The ‘Hunger Games’ actress donned a delicate white mini dress with flutter sleeves. With her braided hair swept to one side she completed the look with a blue patent Valentino studded clutch, Valentino slingbacks and Blue Nile jewels.

Rose McGowan: The actress, who has barely had a night in in recent weeks, oozed sexy wearing a Valentino red one-shoulder dress. I love the rosette detail on the shoulder. Nude accessories and a red lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Cat Deeley: The British TV presenter opted for a navy lace jumpsuit. Even though she looks as gorgeous as always, I find myself immediately drawn to her gold sandals. A cross-body bag on the red carpet is my kryptonite, but her Mulberry bag is a cute addition to her look.

Ellie Kemper: The red-haired actress also opted for Valentino red. Her short-sleeve dress was more conservative with a ruffle detail cascading from the hip. Navy pumps and a gold Kotur clutch completed her look.

Isabelle is my favourite here, followed by Rose.

Isabelle Fuhrman In Valentino – ‘The Hunger Games’ New York Premiere

Isabelle Fuhrman joined her ‘The Hunger Games’ co-star Jennifer Lawrence at the New York premiere on Tuesday night.

The young actress went mod for the night, wearing a black and white Valentino Pre-Fall 2012 ensemble.

Isabelle played with proportions by pairing an asymmetrical, fitted black top with a short, white bubble skirt.

The look was completed with black Mary-Janes, Blue Nile jewels and a severe bun.

It’s nice to see such a young star taking risks and having fun with fashion.

Who Wore Valentino Better? Shailene Woodley or Zhang Jingchu

Shailene Woodley was one of the break-out stars of award season.

The ‘Descendants’ actress wore this Valentino Spring 2012 gown to the 2012 Directors Guild of America Awards in Hollywood back in January.

I love how her red crochet gown was made youthful with a strapless two-tone dress under the gown, which was see-through.

A side-swept braid completed her look.

Zhang Jingchu posed on the red carpet during the 6th Asian Film Awards in Hong Kong, China, last night wearing the same dress.

The Chinese actress wore a v-neck full-length black dress with her gown, which she accessorized with a gold clutch and gown jewels.

I have to go with Shailene.

Zhang Jingchu is stunning, BDOTW worthy in fact; but Shailene’s look is so much more fun with a hint of sexy.

Michelle Williams In Valentino – ‘My Week With Marilyn’ Japan Press Conference

Earlier today in Tokyo, Japan, Michelle Williams attended a press conference at the ‘Imperial Hotel’ for her movie, ‘My Week With Marilyn’.

On this occasion she wore something more colourful, opting for a watermelon-pink Valentino dress.

Her gorgeous dress with an asymmetrical neckline and bow on the shoulder was kept simple once again with just nude peep-toes.

A soft pink colour perfected her pout.

How do you feel about Michelle going for a sweet, minimalist look once again?
