2013 AFI Awards Red Carpet Round Up

2013 AFI Awards

Here are the rest of the attendees who took to the red carpet on Friday afternoon at the Four Seasons Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California for the 2013 AFI Awards.

Kiernan Shipka: Why Elle Fanning won Best Dressed Teen 2012 over Kiernan I will never quite understand, as the ‘Mad Man’ actress’ style prowess and infinitely better shoe closet leaves Fanning in the shade for me. On this occasion she wore an uber cute yellow Valentino frock with satin black trims paired with simple black Rupert Sanderson ankle-strap sandals. Light makeup and a simple bun complete her fresh, youthful look.

Lena Dunham: There was much debate over Lena’s previous look with some saying that she’s “just-not-that-into-fashion” and others arguing that she needs to play that game. Well it looked like she upped her game at this event wearing a figure flattering Zac Posen grape cape-sleeve dress with a flared skirt. Silver glitter Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ flats and a berry lip colour to complement her dress completed her look.

Sally Field: The actress selected a grey-and-white Stella McCartney short sleeve dress with a white lace overlay which we’ve also seen on Michelle Dockery. Grey pearls and grey pumps perfect her day time chic look.

Felicity Jones In Valentino – ‘Cheerful Weather for the Wedding’ London Screening

Felicity Jones In Valentino - 'Cheerful Weather for the Wedding' London Screening

Felicity Jones recently attended a gala screening of her movie, ‘Cheerful Weather for the Wedding,’ held at the Empire Leicester Square in London on Wednesday.

The British actress charmed in her Valentino Resort 2013 cocktail frock with an exploded floral print in pastel shades of pink, ivory and baby blue. It was, ironically, the perfect dress to wear to an afternoon wedding.

Also contributing a fresh note to this girly look was Felicity’s playful long tresses with a blunt bang.

There’s no question this short-sleeve design, paired with blush-hued pointy-toe pumps, has us craving spring.

Lena Dunham In Valentino – ‘Girls’ Season 2 Premiere

Lena Dunham In Valentino - 'Girls' Season 2 Premiere

Lena Dunham joined Solange Knowles and her ‘Girls’ co-star Allison Williams on the red carpet at the NYU Skirball Center in New York City for the season 2 premiere screening yesterday evening.

Opting for a black-and-white colour palette, the actress wore a Valentino strapless jumpsuit.

The simple look has a sculptural contrast bow accent at the back and slashed pockets.

I’m not sure if I want to hike this up or pull it down a bit because the area under the bust is bunching, which is putting me off liking this look. That and those horrible tattoos.

Also, the look feels too bare. A cuff or a clutch was needed.

Fred Leighton jewels and simple black pumps completed her look.

Yao Chen In Valentino – Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards

Yao Chen In Valentino - Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards

Yao Chen joined a host of stars on the red carpet for the Sohu Fashion Achievement Awards held at China World Hotel Beijing in China on Tuesday evening.

The actress wore a Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

Her sleeveless nude dress, enriched with floral embroidery, was styled with a red shoulder bag, gold-spiked white Louboutin pumps, and Pomellato jewels.

Like Angelababy, who also attended this event, this gown is a rerun. You may remember that Keira Knightley owned this when she wore it back in June last year.

It doesn’t quite have that magical feel a second time around, plus I would’ve preferred a red clutch to a shoulder bag.

Mariah Carey In Valentino – ‘American Idol’ Season Premiere Screening

Mariah Carey In Valentino - 'American Idol' Season Premiere Screening

Mariah Carey attended a Q&A session during the season premiere screening of ‘American Idol’ held at Royce Hall, UCLA in Westwood, California yesterday evening.

The diva wore a Valentino gown which some might say was overdressing for the occasion, but I would say this is Mariah being Mariah.

Her strapless black evening gown with a white bow bodice was styled with a high ponytail, exquisite diamonds Joan Boyce jewels and black peep-toes.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not gonna get my hopes up for any amazing fashion moments from ‘American Idol’ this year.

You may remember that Jennifer Aniston wore this same gown late last year.

Katy Perry In Valentino – 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Katy Perry In Valentino - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Katy Perry didn’t take to the red carpet at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards but she was in attendance to collect her four awards, including ‘Favourite Female Artist’, ‘Favourite Pop Artist’, ‘Favourite Music Video’ for ‘Part of Me’, and ‘Favourite Music Fan Following’ for KatyCats.

Our most improved star of 2012 kick-started the new year in the way she ended the last, looking effortless and sophisticated.

Dressed in a Valentino Fall 2012 number, her long-sleeve black dress with fitted bodice and flared skirt featured floral and gold embroidered details.

Black suede Jimmy Choo ‘Eros’ pumps, gold Sylva & Cie drop earrings and her braided updo, adorned with a gold Jennifer Behr headpiece, completed her look.

If there was ever an event for Quirky Katy to come out to play it was the People’s Choice Awards, but she opted for something mature and sophisticated.

Are you happy or disappointed about that?

Jennifer Lawerence In Valentino Couture – 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Jennifer Lawerence In Valentino Couture - 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Jennifer Lawrence took home the ‘Favourite Movie Actress’ Award at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live yesterday evening, which officially kicked off awards season.

The young actress started the year as she ended the last – failing to impress.

I had hoped the young star was just experimenting last year, but this Valentino Fall 2012 Couture dress does nothing for her, except age her somewhat.

At this point I’m starting to believe her team is trying to take her down the Rooney Mara route, because I can picture her pulling off this look.

Where is the playful, fresh Jennifer of early 2012?

The only plus side for me is that her hair appears lighter.

Nicholas Kirkwood diamond-encrusted black satin pumps and Cartier jewels completed her look.

The disco-era called, they want their dress back.
