Who Wore Valentino Better…Keira Knightley or Yao Chen?

Who Wore Valentino Better Keira Knightley or Yao Chen

Keira Knightley looked stunning wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 gown to the ‘Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World’ LA Film Festival premiere back in June last year.

The British actress never lets us down when it comes to red carpet dressing, and we were totally in awe of how she made the red Chanel floral metal headband work without it feeling too costumey.

Yao Chen’s motto was “anything Keira can do, I can do better”.

Sadly this wasn’t the case for me. Her red shoulder bag, while complementing the look colour-wise, still felt very out of place for such a delicate gown. I also felt the gown had lost much of its allure the second time around.

It was like someone trying to cover a Michael Jackson song: a feat like this can only be achieved to perfection once.

Keira wins by a country mile.

Kiernan Shipka In Red Valentino – ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Premiere

Kiernan Shipka In Red Valentino - ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Premiere

Kiernan Shipka, my favourite mini-fashionista, was back on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 held at the DGA Theater in LA yesterday evening.

Never failing to look anything less than adorable, she wore a Red Valentino dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

At first I thought her dress was embroidered, but the close up reveals a jewel print.

Lace pumps with a black leather toecap, a ruby clutch and Kwiat diamond-and-ruby earrings accessorized her look, with a high ponytail and neutral makeup providing the finishing touches.

I love how she continues to look all grown up yet still youthful and age-appropriate, which is why she’s a leader in the teen fashion pack.

Michelle Yeoh In Valentino – 7th Asian Film Awards Cocktail Party

Michelle Yeoh In Valentino - 7th Asian Film Awards Cocktail Party

Michelle Yeoh took to the red carpet for the 7th Asian Film Awards cocktail party ahead of the main event held at Grand Hyatt Hotel in Hong Kong on Sunday.

She wore a Valentino Resort 2013 floral embroidered short-sleeved dress.

Not for the first time in the last week have I felt that this Valentino dress would’ve worked better on one of the teen stars of Hollywood.

I love the dress but it feels too twee for someone of Michelle’s stature, especially when you factor in that pink bow accent.

Jimmy Choo sandals and a Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch completed her look.

Do you agree? Is this dress too twee for Michelle?

Kasia Smutniak In Valentino – ‘Benvenuto Presidente’ Rome Photocall

Kasia Smutniak In Valentino - 'Benvenuto Presidente' Rome Photocall

Kasia Smutniak attended the ‘Benvenuto Presidente’ photocall at Cinema Adriano in Rome, Italy yesterday afternoon.

The Polish actress, who took Venice Film Festival by storm last year, was back to wearing her favourite brand: Valentino.

Her black Spring 2013 dress with an A-line silhouette features a nude lace bib with a reverse collar, slanted pockets and puffed shoulders with dainty faux-button sleeves.

Black patent-leather pumps with a gold heel completed her ladylike look.

Eva Mendes In Valentino – Vogue Eyewear Communications Campaign Launch

Eva Mendes In Valentino - Vogue Eyewear Communications Campaign Launch

Eva Mendes has been M.I.A. on the red carpet and snuggling up to Ryan Gosling, damn her, but she made a return yesterday to help Vogue Eyewear launch their Spring/Summer Communications Campaign, held at Simon House in Beverly Hills, California.

The beautiful actress wore a Valentino Resort 2013 dress for the occasion.

With the sun finally out here in London, this dress has me excited for spring.

Her yellow and multi-pink floral macramé-lace and tulle dress with a defined waist, short sleeves and scalloped hemline was most bizarrely paired with burgundy velvet pumps.

It was bad enough that I wanted to take scissors to the neckline to open it out and cut-out that tulle panel, so the shoes are a bitter disappointment.

A cute pair of those popular Valentino ‘Rock Stud’ pumps or Valentino sandals would’ve been much better.

Signature smoky eyes, a heavy gold embellished clutch and statement earrings completed her look which I think would better suit Kiernan Shipka or Elle Fanning.

Are you as flummoxed by the shoes as I am?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Pace Wu In Valentino & Giambattista Valli & Adrien Brody In Margiela

Pace Wu BDOTW

Pace Wu was undoubtedly the best dressed of last week, but we picked two different looks.

You fell in love with her romantic Valentino lace gown, while her Giambattista Valli ensemble with its impeccable styling caught my eye.

Despite my love for three-piece suits, I picked Adrien Brody in Margiela over Leonardo DiCaprio in Tom Ford for my best dressed male. A choice which you also shared.
