January Jones For Versace Spring 2011 Ad Campaign

January Jones features in Versace’s new Spring/Summer 2011 advertising campaign which was shot by Mario Testino.

My pick for brand ambassador for Versace would’ve been Blake Lively, but after seeing these subtly sensual pictures I will say that Versace made the perfect choice.

January showcases the new Versace accessories with her sophisticated beauty. It’s so easy to forget she’s naked in these pictures.

Donatella Versace said: “I am always on the lookout for the next Versace blonde… and in January I feel I have found a perfect Versace woman for the twenty-first century. She is chic and elegant but deeply sensual too – it is a ‘dramatic’ combination.”

The black and white photographs and hair and makeup reference the spirit of the Sixties, which is appropriate as January is best known for her role in “Mad Men”.

The advertising campaign will feature bags, shoes, sunglasses and optical frames from the Versace Spring 2011 collection.

14.12.10 Premiere

Angelina Jolie In Versace – “The Tourist” Berlin Premiere

True to form Angelina Jolie wore black to “The Tourist” Berlin Premiere tonight.

Whilst I love the idea of her Versace velvet dress having built in gloves – for both style and comfort – I still can’t help wishing for that WOW factor I know is never coming.

For some reason this gothic-vibe she giving us feels really familiar.

Even the voluminous hair has a touch of de ja vu about it (“Mr. And Mrs. Smith” LA Premiere 2005).

I think what I’m trying to say that despite Donatella creating an amazing dress, Angelina doesn’t excite me wearing it.

Had this been worn by Christina Ricci or Megan Fox with red hot lips I think I would be drooling on my keyboard, but I’m not feeling that with Ange.

Katie Cassidy In Versace – 2011 Golden Globe Awards Season And Miss Golden Globe Announcement Party

Katie Cassidy channeled her inner sex kitten on the red carpet at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards Season And Miss Golden Globe Announcement Party recently.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore a Versace Fall 2010 mini dress.

Her white dress has a thigh-high split and crystal detailing at the neckline.

The dress takes various parts of many looks from the Versace Fall 2010 collection.

This simple version suits Katie perfectly.

Silver accessories completed her look.

Jennifer Lopez In Versace – American Idol Hollywood Week

Jennifer Lopez was spotted on the streets of Hollywood yesterday as she made her way to the first taping of American Idol’s Hollywood week.

In typical JLO fashion the diva looked uber sexy wearing a Versace Fall 2010 dress.

Her white turtleneck long-sleeved dress has cut-outs on the shoulders and a diagonal zipper on the skirt.

With hair pulled back into a high ponytail she paired her look with black thigh-high boots and a black Kelly Locke clutch.

Charlize Theron In Versace – 2010 Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project Benefit

Charlize Theron’s Africa Outreach Project Benefit as been raising money for safer and healthier lives for at-risk children in her native country South Africa since 2007.

The gorgeous actress wore a divine Versace white dress with patent leather trims from the Spring 2011 collection.

Her look was event appropriate. The event wasn’t about her which is why I don’t hate her Stella McCartney cropped blazer which she paired with her stunning white knee-length cocktail dress, as it adds a lot of sophistication to her look.

This effortlessly chic look was paired with nude Versace sandals and a black clutch.

On this rare occasion I would’ve preferred black sandals.

Do you like Charlize’s shoe choice?

Update: Looks like Charlize wasn’t too sure on the nude heels either because she changed to black sandals during the event.

Blake Lively In Versace – Lorraine Schwartz’ ’2BHAPPY’ Jewelry Launch

Blake Lively also attended the launch party for Lorraine Schwartz’ ’2BHAPPY’ Jewelry collection in New York last night which was hosted Beyonce Knowles.

She oozed sex appeal in her Versace Spring 2011 dress.

The gorgeous spaghetti strapped nude fringe top has a cascading layer of fringed details which falls over her fitted pencil skirt.

As much as I love the skirt I have two objections.

Firstly I would’ve loved for the skirt to be a tad shorter on Blake. Just below the knee like on the model would’ve been perfect.

Also I’m not particularly crazy about her brown coloured Christian Louboutin Amber Patent Double-Platform Sandals, but I will take them over an uninteresting pair of pumps.

Blake took inspiration from the runway to pull her hair tightly back to show off her stunning Lorraine Schwartz earrings.

Can’t wait to read your thoughts on this look.
