Christina Ricci In Vivienne Westwood – 2013 Met Gala

ChristinaRicci

Christina Ricci went mad for plaid at the 2013 Met Gala, hosted on Monday at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Rather appropriately, given the evening’s controversial theme, the actress relied on the queen of punk herself, Vivienne Westwood, to outfit her for the red carpet.

After last year’s jaw-dropping gown, Christina had big shoes to fill. And she did with this poufy, high-low couture gown that was gloriously adventurous and anti-establishment.

Pointy-toe Casadei platform pumps and black tights, natch, were necessary additions.

She infused some old-Hollywood glam into this punkish statement with her sparkling Harry Winston earrings and cuffs and her retro, side-parted pin curls, which elevated this moment to another level.

A hot red-orange lippie polished off the look.

Alice Eve In Vivienne Westwood Red Label – ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ After-Party

Alice Eve In Vivienne Westwood Red Label - 'Star Trek Into Darkness' After-Party

Alice Eve attended the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ after-party held at Aqua in London on Thursday evening.

Giving the photogs a wry smile the star changed out of her Ermanno Scervino dress into a Vivienne Westwood Red Label sexy black dress with a random pocket.

Her drape-shoulder dress with a reinforced bust and corsetry for a perfect fit was styled with black ankle boots.

Despite not being a fan of ankle boots with dresses I can occasionally overlook this type of styling; on this occasion they don’t get a pass – in fact they have no business being near this dress.

From the ankles up, she’s working it once again.

I know you guys hated them, but I would to see her bring back the bangs.

Eva Longoria’s ‘Ready for Love’ Promo Tour

Eva Longoria's 'Ready for Love' Promo Tour

Taking a break from acting, Eva Longoria’s latest project is a reality TV show, ‘Ready for Love’. On Monday, she was spotted out in New York City doing the rounds promoting the show, which aims to find America’s most eligible guys searching for their soul mates. Sound familiar?

The Today Show: The host kick started her day on the Today show, where she wore a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania black cotton off-the-shoulder peplum blouse teamed with black lace Amber Sakai skinny leggings from the Fall 2012 collection. Jimmy Choo black pumps and glossy side-swept wavy locks completed her look.

Live with Kelly and Michael: Opting for a dress on this occasion, Eva donned a dark-brown Todd Lynn dress with draped sleeves, which she styled with Christian Louboutin suede boots.

New York Hotel: Her final look, as she headed back to her hotel following a busy morning, was an ivory Alexander McQueen leopard-print jacquard-knit fitted dress, styled with black Jimmy Choo pumps and dark shades.

All three looks are abysmal. Honestly, I don’t know what she (or her stylist) was thinking. The Westwood top looks awkward and seems like it needs adjustment to make it work. The Todd Lynn is by far the worst: not only because of the muddy brown, but also the extra material around her waist is terribly unflattering. The McQueen is the best of a bad bunch, but styling a summery dress with black pumps has never sat well with me.

Bring on Cannes Film Festival; that seems to be the only time when Eva really shines.

Menswear Red Carpet Round Up

Menswear 9 April 2013

Nick Cannon: The host of ‘America’s Got Talent’ joined Heidi Klum on the red carpet at the Rockefeller Center for the New York auditions. Going for a dapper look wearing a two-piece Vivienne Westwood Man suit, I find myself being bothered by the fit of the pants. The blazer features an insert waistcoat, giving the look a smart but trendy feel with a gold chain and button closure He styled his suit with a grey floral brooch, a lavender shirt, a blue printed tie with a tie pin, and grey shoes.

Robert Downing Jr.: The actor is still in Asia promoting the third installment of the ‘Iron Man’ franchise. On this occasion, he attended a photocall in Beijing, China wearing a Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2013 burgundy cotton two-button notch lapel suit. Aside from the obligatory sneakers by Lanvin, this was a surprisingly quirk-free look. I love the colour; the complementary CK shirt and purple tinted glasses help make this one of his best looks so far on this tour.

Alexander Skarsgard: The handsome actor joined Paula Patton on the red carpet last night for the ‘Disconnect’ New York screening. I have one word for Alexander in this Calvin Klein grey suit and black shirt: swoon.

Joanne Froggatt In Vivienne Westwood Red Label – Jameson Empire Awards 2013

Joanne Froggatt In Vivienne Westwood Red Label - Jameson Empire Awards 2013

Joanne Froggatt attended the 2013 Jameson Empire Awards held at Grosvenor House in London, England on Sunday.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star wore a Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2013 pink skirt suit with a white Topshop blouse.

You may be thinking that Joanne has buttoned up her curved-lapel blazer incorrectly; however, the asymmetrical hem is a typical Westwood quirk.

Channelling some retro glamour into her look, Joanne styled her hair into a beehive side ponytail and sported cat eyes.

Multi-coloured patent pumps completed her look.

You can buy Joanne’s Topshop floral blouse from Topshop US and Topshop UK.

Kat Dennings In Vivienne Westwood – 2013 Grammy Awards

2013Grammys_KatDennings

Kat Dennings attended the 2013 Grammy Awards hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California this evening.

For her presenter duties, the ‘2 Broke Girls’ starlet wore a strapless Vivienne Westwood cocktail dress that didn’t translate as richly as I would have liked.

It was a structured, architectural design, but like this funny girl, it didn’t take itself too seriously. After all, the blue and white print, glittery with sequins, was slightly reminiscent of tie-dye.

That pendant necklace didn’t really belong, though, nor did those chunky nude platform, peep-toe pumps.

Her dramatic oxblood lip and nails, not to mention her long dark locks, put this look on vampy territory.

Did this ensemble fall short for you?

Andrea Riseborough In Vivienne Westwood Couture – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Andrea Riseborough In Vivienne Westwood - 2013 BAFTA AwardsBritish actress Andrea Riseborough also opted for yellow to chase away the chill at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, hosted on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

After her frou-frou- and floral-filled turn in a Chanel Resort 2013 frock at the BAFTA nominees party, Andrea took a harder line with her more straight-laced Vivienne Westwood Couture gown styled with De Beers jewels.

The strapless creation still had some frill factor, though, with the ribbon-like detailing at the bodice.

However, the overall effect wasn’t as polished as it perhaps could have been, as the dress appeared a bit rumpled and wrinkled.

The contrast between Andrea’s jet-black hair, which was haphazardly pulled into an updo, as well as her black handbag and black lacquered nails was all a bit harsh against the yellow.

Such a colour combination should perhaps be left to the bumblebee.

Halle Berry In Vivienne Westwood – 2013 NAACP Image Awards

Halle Berry In Vivienne Westwood - 2013 NAACP Image Awards

Halle Berry has been making a much improved effort to switch up her red carpet looks recently, and that was definitely the case at the 2013 NAACP Image Awards on Friday evening.

The ‘Cloud Atlas’ actress wore a Vivienne Westwood ‘Ball Tie’ gown from the designers Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.

Her black satin corset gown with a champagne coloured scarf detail is a huge step up from her Golden Globes gown.

This classier look was simply styled with drop earrings and her signature cropped do styled into spunky spikes.

Much improved or does Halle not impress you much?
