Leave it to last night’s 2013 MTV Video Music Awards to bring out the unexpected, with an eclectic mix of sartorial sass, surprisingly understated appeal and sheer shock factor. But, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, the men’s looks were nearly as colourful as the daring drama queens themselves.
Darren Criss: Clad in an aubergine Versace one-button peak lapel suit, the ‘Glee’ cutie completed his look with a black-and-white Versace pocket square, a black button-down shirt and contrasting dark-blue tie, not to mention Christian Louboutin ‘Bruno Orlato Glitter’ flat loafers. Any guy who boldly goes for glitter and eggplant gets my vote.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Adding a touch of the unexpected to his light heather-grey Prada suit, the actor wore a cerulean-blue shirt. A thin black tie and black brogues finished out the look.
Miles Teller: ‘The Spectacular’ Now star made a more casual entrance with his Second Sunday grey shirt and Andrew Marc black jeans, amped up with an oxblood Giorgio Armani jacket.
Following her dramatic red carpet look which kick-started her glamorous night at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday evening, Rita Ora did a quick change before taking to her seat.
There were many more lovely ladies who attended the InStyle Summer Soiree held at the Mondrian Los Angeles in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.
Darby Stanchfield: The ‘Scandal’ actress instantly caught my eye, not only because of the striking contrast between her gorgeous flame-red beehive and electric-blue drop-waist Paper London dress, but mostly because of her pronounced eyebrows, which gave the look a futuristic vibe, further punctuated by her sculptural Kzeniya clutch and Emporio Armani silver pumps.
Ashley Tisdale: Although this sleeveless Clover Canyon ‘Orchid Trip’ neoprene dress is very much expected from Ashley, I love the soft pastel pieces styled with the look. The black clutch is very much the odd man out here.
Analeigh Tipton: The actress was one of many who also opted for neutral tones, wearing a chic tunic top and matching trousers by Ermanno Scervino accented with a black waistband. Opting not to go with black accessories, she wore white Casadei sandals and carried a gold Stark clutch, with Dannijo earrings completing the look.
Lily Collins made a guest appearance on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ to promote her latest movie ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ yesterday evening.
Continuing the bold-outfit, bolder-dark-lip-colour trend which earned her the most-commented post yesterday, she opted for an eye-catching neon-yellow Versace Resort 2014 dress with a blood-red lip colour.
As much as I love the long-sleeved mummy-like bodycon ruched wrap dress against her pale skin tone, I prefer the shorter length as presented in the look book.
No prizes for guessing that I am also not a fan of the heavy dark-green Casadei platform shoes, especially when those sexy Versace sandals are making my heart ache.
Are the length of Lily’s dress and her shoe choice killing your love for this look too?
To celebrate 15 years at Liverpool Football Club, Steven Gerrard, aka Stevie G, was honoured with a testimonial match against Olympiacos followed by a Gala Dinner held at the Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday.
Alex was, of course, on hand to support her husband, arriving at the match surprisingly not wearing Balmain.
Instead, she wore a laidback look consisting of the very popular Isabel Marant ‘Maryloe’ mankolam-paisley jersey dress, as worn by Emma Roberts and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, styled with Isabel Marant ‘Memphis’ booties (worn by everyone including Emmanuelle Alt, Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr) and a black Givenchy ‘Pandora’ bag.
For the dinner she scrubbed up rather nicely, wearing a beautiful printed strapless Versace gown with a central slit styled with a black clutch with gold hardware, black sandals with gold accents, a chunky gold cuff, perfectly coiffed tresses, a red mani-pedi and a not-so-orange tan.
