Vera Farmiga In Valentino – ‘Bates Motel: Reimagining A Cinema Icon’ The Paley Center for Media Presentation

Vera Farmiga In Valentino - ‘Bates Motel Reimagining A Cinema Icon’ The Paley Center for Media Presentation

Vera Farmiga joined Nicola Peltz in attending The Paley Center for Media presents ‘Bates Motel: Reimagining A Cinema Icon’ at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California on Friday evening.

The actress wore a Valentino Resort 2013 look, which featured a long-sleeved black lace shirt with white contrasting collar & cuffs, which she paired with a black pencil skirt.

Vera added a black patent belt, a black clutch and nude pumps to her look, keeping the makeup simple with side-swept bangs and a neat bun completing her look.

I have a feeling that the overall look ages Vera somewhat. I really want to love the look, but something is preventing me. It might be the pumps or that belt.

British Academy Television Awards 2013

British Academy Television Awards 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday.

Millie Mackintosh: Opting to steal the limelight from the celebs at this event, the reality TV star wore a daring Sass & Bide Fall 2013 strapless gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, gold-plated accent, keyhole cut-out and thigh-high slit. Gold cuffs, a Swarovski clutch and black strappy heels completed her look. If stealing the limelight was her intention, I would say this was mission accomplished.

Holly Willoughby: I love Holly’s red Valentino one-shoulder gown; however, her black platform heels are a huge letdown. They are so clunky and heavy in comparison to the rest of her look. She can do – and has done – much better.

Jessica Hynes: This Vivienne Westwood gown was one of my favourites on the night. The black silk gown, with a ruched pale-pink chiffon-trimmed neckline, draped detail at the back and draped over-the-shoulder detail, gives her a beautiful silhouette. Allowing the gown to shine by just adding nude pumps was the perfect way to style this look.

Anne Hathaway In Valentino – 2013 Met Gala

annehathaway

Showing us that blondes really do have more fun, Anne Hathaway took her pixie cut up a notch with a new platinum colour at the 2013 Met Gala in New York. Apparently, she was inspired by punk-goddess Debbie Harry of Blondie.

So Nicole Richie wasn’t the only one with a brave new hair hue on Monday.

The ‘Les Miserables’ actress completely surrendered to the evening’s punk theme, flaunting a surprising exhibitionist side with this Valentino Couture embellished vintage gown, accented with feathered cuffs.

The ziggy-zaggy beading of the too-sheer black dress did precious little to cover her curves. So she certainly brought the sexy, shock side of punk to the gala.

A Valentino Noir Lucite clutch and a bright yellow manicure completed the look.

I have to say, after a few underwhelming red-carpet moments this year, there is something about this devil-may-care, bad-girl side of Anne that is rather intriguing.

What do you think of her transformation?

Gwyneth Paltrow In Valentino Couture – 2013 Met Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow In Valentino Couture - 2013 Met Gala

There was not a stitch of punk within Gwyneth Paltrow’s look for the 2013 Met Gala, held in New York City on Monday; however she was pretty in pink.

I wasn’t expecting too many to embrace the punk theme, so I am not surprised to see the actress opt for this Valentino Couture gown which was custom made which she styled with Wilfredo Rosado earrings.

You will be delighted to see that her pink gown features a nude insert in the shoulders, and not down the side of her skirt on this occasion.

As much as I love this look, I wish it was more fitted around the waist — at present, Gwyneth looks wider at the waist than she usually looks. Plus, I wish some punk element had been added to her look even if it was a studded Valentino clutch or a McQueen skull clutch.

Julianne Moore In Valentino – ‘What Maisie Knew’ New York Screening

Julianne Moore In Valentino - 'What Maisie Knew' New York Screening

Julianne Moore attended the ‘What Maisie Knew’ screening on Thursday evening, held at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York City.

The actress blended into her surroundings wearing a black Valentino Pre-Fall 2013 dress.

Her black lace frock with a pleated skirt and lace hem was slightly modified from the look book version to provide more coverage on the bodice. While this was needed, it somewhat mummified the look, making Julianne appear older than she is.

Julianne’s favourite Tabitha Simmons Bailee lace-up sandals and a black satin clutch styled her look with a chic updo, and nude lip colour completing her look.

While this is pretty, I prefer Julianne when she’s being a bit more adventurous.
