Allison Williams In Christian Dior – ‘Girls’ Season Three Premiere

Allison Williams In Christian Dior - 'Girls' Season Three Premiere

Allison Williams joined co-star Lena Dunham on the red carpet for the season three premiere of ‘Girls’ held at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Monday (January 6) in New York City.

The actress wore a dress from one of her go-to designers, Dior, selecting a pale-blue silk-leather-and-satin dress with a bodice decorated with floral appliqués, a pleated skirt and a rise-and-fall hemline.

There is something very Ariel Winter/Lucy Hale about this frock, and what I mean by that is that it feels better suited to a teen Hollywood starlet.

Allison styled her pretty frock with Dior blush pumps, Dior Fine Jewelry ‘Bagatelle’ white-gold-and-diamond earrings and a ‘Bagatelle’ white-gold-and-diamond ring.

A tight bun accented with an ornate jewelled brooch, and a pink lip completed her look.

Cate Blanchett In Antonio Berardi – New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Cate Blanchett In Antonio Berardi - New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Cate Blanchett attended the 79th annual New York Film Critics Circle Awards held at The Edison Ballroom on Monday (January 6) in New York City.

The actress wore a silver Antonio Berardi Pre-Fall 2014 dress with a fitted waist and flared skirt with a rise-and-fall hemline featuring a deep-red lining, which she wore with a bold-shouldered cropped jacket which differed from the look book.

The look almost has a medieval-period quality to it, which isn’t an easy look to pull off, but there is no question that the queen does so with great aplomb.

Cate styled the look with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

My only wish here is that she’d considered the lining of the dress and opted for red shoes as pictured on the model.

Lena Dunham In Rochas – ‘Girls’ Season Three Premiere

Lena Dunham In Rochas - 'Girls' Season Three Premiere

Lena Dunham attended the season three premiere of ‘Girls’ held at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Monday (January 6) in New York City.

Towards the end of last year, it was apparent that Lena was making a concerted effort when it came to her red carpet looks, and I have the feeling that has continued into 2014.

The funny gal wore a Rochas Spring 2014 silver crystal-embroidered and bonded-silk sleeveless gown styled with complementary sparkling pumps.

Opting to wear the look sans jewels, she slicked back her tresses, opting for smoky mocha eyes and a glossy lip.

Is Lena still on the right track, or are you waiting for her awards-season frocks to judge if she has really turned a corner style-wise?

Who Wore Vivienne Westwood MAN Better…Matthew McConaughey or Adam Lambert?

Who Wore Vivienne Westwood MAN Better Matthew McConaughey or Adam Lambert

On one of the first times Matthew McConaughey stepped out of his Dolce & Gabbana comfort zone, the actor attended a screening of his movie ‘Mud’ wearing a checked Vivienne Westwood Man suit back in April.

Styling the look almost exactly as it was worn on the runway, with the logo-engraved-button-accented chain closure, he completed his look with a white unbuttoned shirt and black shoes.

Adam Lambert wore the same suit to ‘Britney: Piece of Me’ at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino late last year, opting to make the look his own deciding not to wear the blazer.

Even as someone who tends to favour three-piece suits, there is no denying that Adam’s look is much better. I almost feel like Matthew’s look has too much going on in comparison.

Kylie Minogue In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – ‘The Voice UK’ Photocall

Kylie Minogue In Alexandre Vauthier - 'The Voice UK' Photocall

Earlier today (January 6) Kylie Minogue was officially revealed as the new-season judge for The Voice (replacing Jessie J) alongside Will.i.am, Tom Jones and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson.

Having never watched The Voice (mostly because of my dislike for Will.i.am), Kylie’s inclusion in the line-up of judges is likely to make me give the music talent show a try.

The singer wore a sexy well-tailored strapless Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 dress with a thigh-high slit, white asymmetrical panel, black PVC panel and gold waistband.

Posing with one leg to the side à la Angelina Jolie, the judge donned a pair of black-and-gold peep-toe heels, wearing her honey-coloured tresses in tousled waves and oozing elegance and sex appeal.

I much prefer Kylie’s version of this look over the runway. Do you?

The new series of The Voice kicks off in the UK on BBC One this coming Saturday (January 11) at 7pm.

Menswear Roundup

Menswear Roundup

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Bradley Cooper: Joining a host of lovely ladies on the red carpet at the 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala, the actor continued his impeccable red carpet run wearing a classic Tom Ford suit. While the likes of Adam Lambert continue to pique my interesting with off-beat suits, there is nothing quite like a traditional suit and bow tie that is guaranteed to make me swoon.

David Gandy: The handsome model joined Kylie Minogue at Dolce & Gabbana’s Bond Street store for their London Collections: Men Event. Smouldering, as he does, David wore a Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit with a luxe velvet blazer with satin lapels styled with a grey tie and brown shoes for an interesting twist.

Michael B Jordan: The actor, who still needs to work on his red carpet pose, attended the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s 8th Annual Kirk Douglas Award For Excellence In Film Gala on Sunday (January 5) in Santa Barbara, California wearing a shawl-collar-lapel Hugo Boss suit with Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers’ flats.

Idris Elba: The British actor joined his ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ co-star, Naomie Harris, on the red carpet for the 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala also wearing a traditional suit and bow tie. He also wore Louboutins; opting for the tassel accented ‘Dada’ flats.

In this sea of black suits who stands out for you?
