Best Dressed Of The Week – Xu Qing In Zuhair Murad Couture, Juliette Lewis In Monique Lhuillier & James Marsden In Dolce & Gabbana

BDOTW 23 Dec

Xu Qing wearing a Zuhair Murad Couture ballgown was your best dressed this week.

I opted for Juliette Lewis in Monique Lhuillier. I love the colour of the gown, the voluminous skirt, plus the decorative styling which included a vintage bejewelled headband.

The look was bold without being brash and fun without being comical.

As for the fellas, James Marsden in Dolce & Gabbana was the clear winner. On trend in blue, he mixed things up wearing a dual-colour navy-and-grey suit, looking incredibly dapper and handsome in the process.

Xu Qing In Zuhair Murad Couture – Van Cleef & Arpels Dinner

Xu Qing In Zuhair Murad Couture - Van Cleef & Arpels Dinner

Xu Qing swept onto the scene at the Van Cleef & Arpels dinner, held in Beijing, China over the weekend.

The Chinese actress wore a nude silk Zuhair Murad cap-sleeve ball gown, hand-embroidered in electric blue twigs, from the Fall 2013 Couture collection.

The epitome of gothic glamour, the elegance of this confection was intensified with the more sinister edge of those barren tree branches that twisted across the entire design. The skirt’s frothy tulle overlay delivered a sense of fairytale enchantment.

While the dress may have been a dark beauty, Xu complemented it with a lighter touch—minimal jewels, save for a cocktail ring, accessorized the look whilst a petal pink lip added a soft note.

Elsa Zylberstein In Zuhair Murad Couture, Elie Saab & Christian Dior – Marrakech Film Festival

Elsa Zylberstein In Zuhair Murad Couture, Elie Saab & Christian Dior - Marrakech Film Festival

We are three days into the Marrakech International Film Festival, which kick-started on Friday in Morocco, and we have three looks from Elsa Zylberstein.

Opening Ceremony: At the opening ceremony, the French actress wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture nude high-neck gown with lace embroidery. The first words that came to mind were “mother-to-be”. That was until I saw her next look.

‘A Thousand Times Good Night’ Premiere: Wearing a more streamline Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 black beaded gown, “mother-to-be” wasn’t my first thought. More like “what a chic, elegant look”, which she styled with a sleek centre-parted bun, a cuff and a satin bow-accented clutch.

‘Like Father, Like Son’ Premiere: Dior dresses are really dominating this festival. I’m guessing it was a prerequisite in order to attend, or the brand was smart enough to take their fabulous dresses to the event knowing they would have beautiful actresses ready to snap up their red-carpet-ready looks. Elsa wore a black-and-white strapless corseted dress with a draped detail at the hip, which you may remember we first saw on Jennifer Lawrence during Cannes Film Festival. Carrying the same black clutch from the night before, Elsa added a pair of stunning earrings and black Louboutin pumps to her look.

Blanca Suarez In Zuhair Murad – ‘Intimissimi’ Flagship Store Opening

Blanca Suarez In Zuhair Murad - 'Intimissimi' Flagship Store Opening

Blanca Suarez helped open a new ‘Intimissimi’ flagship store in Madrid, Spain yesterday evening.

The actress smouldered wearing a Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 black velvet dress with a sheer polka-dot yoke and part-sleeves, but she let herself down with her choice of bra.

Considering that she was promoting a lingerie brand, she should’ve worn a strapless bra with this look.

Snakeskin Aquazzura ‘Amazon Roccia’ sandals and a selection of jewels accessorized her look, with a braided updo and smoky eyes completing her look.

Does the visible bra totally put you off?

Nieves Alvarez In Zuhair Murad – Rolling Stone Magazine Awards 2013

Nieves Alvarez In Zuhair Murad - Rolling Stone Magazine Awards 2013

Nieves Alvarez attended the Rolling Stone Magazine Awards 2013 held at the Kapital Club in Madrid, Spain yesterday evening.

Working a super-sexy ‘I’m with the band’ look, the model teased her hair into a lacquered-and-loose style, donning a micro-mini Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 long-sleeved jacquard floral-print dress.

With ear cuffs being all the rage now, Nieves took her rock-chic look up a notch with a pair designed by her stylist Victor Blanco for Yanes Young and a spiked ring.

Aquazzura sexy black sandals and a black Saint Laurent clutch completed her look.

The majority of you weren’t so keen on her Gucci look from yesterday, so is this more like the Nieves you know and love?

Zhang Ziyi In Zuhair Murad – 50th Golden Horse Awards After Party

Zhang Ziyi In Zuhair Murad - 50th Golden Horse Awards After Party

Zhang Ziyi switched things up at the 50th Golden Horse Awards after party, changing from one embellished gown to the next.

The Best Leading Actress winner — who wore Chanel Couture to the main event — chose a beautiful black Zuhair Murad floor-length creation with a sheer neckline and all-over flower appliqué design.

She paired her delicately feminine gown with equally light accents: tiny diamond drop earrings, natural makeup, and a sophisticated updo.

I wish the starlet had worn this number to the awards show instead. It’s undeniably lovely on her, much more so than the Chanel look from earlier in the evening.

Which Golden Horse Awards look of hers do you prefer?

Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad Couture & Naeem Khan – 2013 American Music Awards

Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad  - 2013 American Music Awards 2

No wonder Jennifer Lopez didn’t walk the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday evening; she had a very busy night performing and changing into three looks.

Look 1: Performing a tribute to the late Celia Cruz, Jennifer looked beautiful on stage wearing a custom Zuhair Murad Couture look. The bodysuit – designed to reflect Cruz’s legacy in salsa – featured beaded lavender fringe detailing and banded side panels of alternating silver and lavender crystal. If anyone’s gonna make this piece this work, its JLo.
