Rita Ora In Vionnet - Out In New York City

Rita Ora enjoyed a night out with friends in New York City this week, before headed to back to London where she will be performing at the Notting Hill Carnival on Bank Holiday Monday.

As you know I find Rita’s style very hit-and-miss, but I have to say I love this Vionnet Resort 2014 look.

The yellow look consists of several pieces including a mesh-and-leather bra and high-waist panties set, a high-neck collar and intricate knitted overlay.

It’s a bold, sexy and daring look which would not of worked had she taken away one of the elements like the collar for example, or tried to dial it down.

I don’t think this look will be to everyone’s liking, but works for me, even if the accessories are a bit on the boring side.

BDOTW 1

It was a tie this week, as you couldn’t decide between Zhang Ziyi’s bright-orange Vionnet frock and Lily Collins’ backless Houghton gown.

The looks couldn’t be more different: Ziyi’s was sexy and flirty, while Lily’s possessed an ethereal goddess quality.

My pick was Ashley Madekwe in her Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit, you won’t be surprised to learn. Even though I hate this word, the best word to sum up this look is ‘fierce’, feline fierce, with plenty of sex appeal and attitude to boot, with impeccable styling and flawless makeup putting the icing on this tasty cake.

Our menswear choices differed too. You went for the sleek suaveness of Liam Hemsworth in his ice-blue suit, whereas Robert Sheehan in his paisley-print Dent De Man suit was always going to be a winner for me.

Zhang Ziyi In Vionnet - Good Morning America

Despite the rain, Zhang Ziyi’s guest appearance on Good Morning America was taped outside in Times Square, New York this morning.

The Asian beauty talked about her latest movie, ‘Grandmasters’, sharing that she had to go through intense workouts in order to perfect fight scenes.

Looking very pretty, she lit up the gloomy location wearing a bright-orange Vionnet Resort 2014 drop-waist ribbed dress with a pleated skirt and mesh yoke, to which she added an orange leather belt.

I much prefer her version of the dress sans collar in this citrus hue, as it not only makes her glow, but it also brightens up the gloomy morning.

Sporting blown-out locks, she completed her look with Louboutin pumps, Tesiro earrings and Repossi rings.

Amber Heard In Vionnet - 'Paranoia' LA Premiere

As one of my faves, I was excited to see Amber Heard take to the red carpet for the ‘Paranoia’ premiere, which was held at the DGA Theater in Los Angeles, California yesterday evening.

Maybe my expectations were way too high, but my immediate response to her in this Vionnet dress was disappointment.

Realising that I wasn’t giving the sky-blue-black-and-ivory draped dress with a navy skirt and ivory beaded embellishments a chance because the look didn’t scream va-va-voom, I tried to give it another shot, but after seeing it from every angle, especially the back, the only thing I like about the look is the mix of colours.

The silhouette doesn’t work for me as I don’t think it is doing anything for her.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this look, as I think I was far too expectant to see this look clearly.

Rita Ora In Vionnet - Lytham Proms 2013

Following her performance at the Oxegen music festival in Ireland on Saturday, Rita Ora headed to Lytham St Annes, England to perform at yet another music festival on Sunday.

Keeping the gold-plated Vionnet belt from her last look, Rita donned a black crop top which she styled with black pleated leather Vionnet trousers from the Fall 2013 collection.

The cornrow hairstyle toughens up the already feisty look, with leather gloves, a selection of bracelets, and sneakers providing the accessories.

I liked the belt on the previous look, but it has an after-thought feeling here; it does little to enhance the look.

Cate Blanchett In Vionnet - Out In New York City

On Tuesday afternoon, Cate Blanchett was spotted leaving her hotel in New York City en route to a meeting.

Looking as sophisticated and poised as ever, the Australian actress wore a Vionnet Resort 2014 navy-blue silk dress featuring a red ruffle detail cascading from the shoulder.

The effortless look was styled with a two-toned red-and-white belt with eye-catching silver metallic Roger Vivier Virgule ‘Comma’ pumps which added a lightness to her dark-coloured chic look.
