Nina Garcia In Victoria Beckham & Heidi Klum In Vivienne Westwood Anglomania – Project Runway Season 12 Episode 1

Project Runway 12 Ep1

‘Project Runway’ season 12 premiered on Lifetime two weeks ago with guest judge Kate Bosworth, and all the judges opted for a dark fall-like colour palette.

Kate Bosworth: The actress opted for a surprisingly simple look wearing a black sleeveless frock with a statement necklace and black midi heels.

Nina Garcia: I was not surprised that Nina stood out, as she often does, wearing a Victoria Beckham Fall 2013 tri-colour short-sleeve felted wool dress worn without the runway turtleneck; instead she opted for a decorative necklace. Adding a wider leather belt, she completed her look with a silver studded cuff and black sandals.

Zac Posen: This look was more sombre than I expected. The midnight-blue look blended well with his fellow judges; however, I am hoping to see him work some interesting suits this season.

Heidi Klum: After so much animal print during her promo tour, it was refreshing to see her going back to wearing something sexy and simple. She wore a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania crochet cowl-neck dress with a nude slip which she styled with her ‘can’t live without’ Saint Laurent ‘Janis’ T-bar pumps.

Gina Carano’s ‘Fast & Furious 6′ Promo Tour

Gina Carano's 'Fast & Furious 6' Promo Tour

The ‘Fast & Furious 6’ had its final stop on its world tour yesterday evening in Universal City, California. One of the main stars, Gina Carano, had three great looks during the tour.

London Premiere: Earlier this month, Gina was in London, saluting our fine city wearing a look from the Vivienne Westwood Couture collection which was custom made for the actress. The signature gunmetal-blue sequin gown was styled with an ombre top knot and palladium jewels.

Manila Premiere: The second stop was the Philippines, where Gina wore a Tom Ford bias-cut black gown with a high-low hemline styled with black-and-gold Givenchy sandals, an Amanda Pearl clutch and Melinda Maria earrings.

LA Premiere: Going out with a bang, Gina’s gorgeous curves were showcased wearing a white Amanda Wakeley plunging gown with gunmetal beaded embellishments and a high-low hem with a layered train. With the risen hemline we were able to take a gander at her gunmetal Rupert Sanderson sandals, which perfectly complemented the beaded details on her gown, as did her Christian Louboutin silver fishnet clutch and Dana Rebecca Designs and palladium jewels.

The Burberry is a simple yet elegant gown. The Westwood is nothing we haven’t seen before, even though I love the look, so my favourite here is the Amanda Wakeley. It’s the most unique of the three, it’s soft and feminine with an edge, plus it has reignited my love for embellishments.

Marion Cotillard In Vivienne Westwood – Chopard Lunch

Marion Cotillard In Vivienne Westwood - Chopard Lunch

Marion Cotillard attended the Chopard Lunch during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival in France this afternoon.

You will be as shocked as I am to discover that she’s not wearing Dior.

While she is the perfect ambassador for the French brand, we long to see her in something less predictable.

On this occasion she fulfilled our non-Dior-look-for-a-refreshing-change desires by wearing a Vivienne Westwood corseted gown.

Her fluorescent pink-and-ivory silk-jacquard strapless gown with a high-low hem may be considered a tad too revealing for a luncheon but, as the saying goes, ‘this is Cannes so anything goes’.

Opting for minimal makeup, she completed her look with a Chopard ring and tan sandals.

Are you glad to see her wearing something other than Dior, or would you have preferred something more conservative for a luncheon?

Lucy Liu In Vivienne Westwood & J. Mendel – American Ballet Theatre’s Opening Night Spring Gala

Lucy Liu In Vivienne Westwood & J Mendel - American Ballet Theatre's Opening Night Spring Gala

Lucy Liu was a vision in white while attending the American Ballet Theatre’s Opening Night Spring Gala held at the Lincoln Center on Monday evening in New York City.

The ‘Elementary’ actress wore a signature Vivienne Westwood strapless gown.

Her beautifully crafted gown drapes at the waist then elegantly falls to the ground, creating a small train.

I simply adore the J. Mendel capelet she added to gown. It elevates the gown to a whole new level.

Silver Lorraine Schwartz jewels, a simple ponytail and a gold Ferragamo clutch provided the finishing touches to her BDOTW-worthy look – even on Cannes week.

My girl crush just deepened.

British Academy Television Awards 2013

British Academy Television Awards 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday.

Millie Mackintosh: Opting to steal the limelight from the celebs at this event, the reality TV star wore a daring Sass & Bide Fall 2013 strapless gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, gold-plated accent, keyhole cut-out and thigh-high slit. Gold cuffs, a Swarovski clutch and black strappy heels completed her look. If stealing the limelight was her intention, I would say this was mission accomplished.

Holly Willoughby: I love Holly’s red Valentino one-shoulder gown; however, her black platform heels are a huge letdown. They are so clunky and heavy in comparison to the rest of her look. She can do – and has done – much better.

Jessica Hynes: This Vivienne Westwood gown was one of my favourites on the night. The black silk gown, with a ruched pale-pink chiffon-trimmed neckline, draped detail at the back and draped over-the-shoulder detail, gives her a beautiful silhouette. Allowing the gown to shine by just adding nude pumps was the perfect way to style this look.

Miranda Kerr In Vivienne Westwood Anglomania – ‘The Great Gatsby’ New York Screening

Miranda Kerr In Vivienne Westwood Anglomania - ‘The Great Gatsby’ New York Screening

Miranda Kerr attended a screening of ‘The Great Gatsby’ in New York City on Tuesday, after her appearance on the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala.

The Australian supermodel was more covered up on this occasion, wearing a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania jumpsuit from the Fall 2013 collection.

Her off-the-shoulder jumpsuit featuring a pretty floral print is possibly the most loose-fitted piece I think she has ever worn.

Miranda’s red carpet M.O. is usually sexy and fitted; however, this bucks the trend.

She styled her look with nude Alexander Wang ‘Antonia’ sandals and a white Prada ‘Saffiano Promenade’ tote.

A simple side-parted ponytail and glossy pink lips completed the look.

Met Gala 2013 Roundup

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.
