Saoirse Ronan In Lanvin – ‘The Host’ LA Premiere

Saoirse Ronan In Lanvin - 'The Host' LA Premiere

Saoirse Ronan attended the ‘The Host’ LA premiere held at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California with co-star Diane Kruger last night.

I hate to say this out loud, but I was a tad disappointed by her Lanvin Spring 2013 dress.

The Irish actress usually uses the red carpet to showcase a new designer or an edgy piece; however, this falls into neither category.

While I don’t hate the dress – the maroon colour is gorgeous and I do like the black side bow – this is very blah for someone like Saoirse, right down to the Hollywood black pumps by Lanvin.

Being so young, she has the chance to continue to experiment with fashion; I just wish last night had been one of the nights she’d excited rather than blended in.

EF Collection and J/Hadley onyx jewels completed her look.

Emilia Clarke In Dries van Noten – LAX

Emilia Clarke In Dries van Noten - LAX

When most of us get ready to head to the airport, we don’t have the added pressure of a hoard of paparazzi following us, so we’re likely to wear a super-laid-back look which can often include comfy sweatpants and in some cases PJs.

Emilia Clarke no longer has that luxury, although her Dries van Noten Spring 2013 ensemble does look super comfy.

Arriving at LAX yesterday en route back to New York, the British actress wore a plaid shirt with floral-print pants, which is a print mash up the likes of Solange Knowles will be dying to get their hands on.

Adding solid colours to her look, she accessorized with a white cardigan, black peep-toes and a Ralph Lauren bag with tassel and gold stirrup accents.

Did she nail her airport look, or is she too dressed up for a 5 hour flight?

Diane Kruger In Thakoon – ‘The Host’ LA Premiere

Diane Kruger In Thakoon - 'The Host' LA Premiere

Diane Kruger took to the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘The Host’, held at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

She wore a daring Thakoon Fall 2013 black sleeveless dress with floral appliqués and a dandelion print.

While the dress shows off more than a little side boob, I think this was a risk that paid off.

She looked sexy, which isn’t a word I have often used when describing a look worn by Diane.

Adding a sci-fi touch to her look, she worked a metallic-silver manicure, two-tone Jimmy Choo ‘Malika’ booties and Stephen Webster ‘Firework’ white-diamond earrings.

Less is always more when it comes to Diane’s beauty regimen. A side-parted do, luscious lashes and a pink lip colour completed her look.

RTS Programme Awards Red Carpet Round Up

RTS Programme Awards Red Carpet Round Up

The RTS (Royal Television Society) Programme Awards took place at Grosvenor House in London yesterday evening. They span all genres of television programming, from soaps to history, children’s fiction to comedy performance, recognising exceptional actors, presenters, writers and production teams as well as the programmes themselves.

Anna Shaffer: Anna stood out for obvious reasons: not because she was bang on trend wearing black-and-white, but more because her Osman Yousefzada colour-block dress with split sleeves is very similar to the jumpsuit Beyonce Knowles wore to the 2013 Grammy Awards. Styling the look with side-swept glossy locks and black accessories, she added a touch of glamour via her red lip colour.

Kym Marsh: At first I thought the Coronation Street actress was wearing a Herve Leger gown, but her fitted bandage dress with a chiffon train was designed by Elle Luna. Always one to stand out on a red carpet, she completed her look with a swept-up bouffant and dramatic kohl-rimmed eyes.

Natalie Gumede: The talented Coronation Street actress wore a very familiar Issa gown, featuring the signature twist front and plunging neckline. The colour is heavenly against her skin tone and I love the addition of a gold clutch, but as always I have hair envy.

Jenni Falconer: The TV presenter, who hasn’t changed her hairstyle in over 10 years, wore a Tabitha Webb LBD with an asymmetrical neckline. The red waistband matched the red lining of the dress, and Jenni added more red to her look via her satin clutch and nail polish. Black sequinned pumps completed her look. You may remember that Miranda Kerr wore this same dress in yellow earlier this year.

Who Wore Reem Acra Better…Carrie Underwood or Zhang Ziyi?

Who Wore Reem Acra Better Carrie Underwood or Zhang Ziyi

Carrie Underwood attended the 46th annual CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee wearing a Reem Acra gown from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection.

This gown is everything we would expect from Carrie: embellished, pretty and floaty.

She styled her look with a Swarovski clutch and, despite the light colour of her gown, she opted for heavy kohl-rimmed eyes.

Zhang Ziyi wore the same gown back in late December while attending the Chinese Music Charts Concert in Taipei, Taiwan.

Opting for Sergio Rossi pumps and dazzling Bulgari earrings, I much prefer her styling with a simple updo as opposed to Carrie’s curly pageant ‘do.

The updo is much more sophisticated and gives the look a cleaner finish.

Emilia Clarke’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Smoky Eyes

Premiere Of HBO's "Game Of Thrones" Season 3 - ArrivalsMakeup artist Dawn Broussard has shared how to get Emilia Clarke’s ‘Game of Thrones’ smoky eyes.

“Emilia’s Victoria Beckham dress had royal-blue tones, so we didn’t want it to contrast too much with her makeup. We wanted timeless glamour with a hint of something excitable” said Dawn.

First Dawn prepped Emilia’s skin with Bioré Acne Clearing Scrub to create the perfect canvas and a beautiful, luminous complexion.

The scrub gently cleanses and polishes skin without harsh side effects or over-drying.

A primer was massaged into the skin with a tissue used to remove the excess product.

Black liner was smudged on the upper and lower lash lines, followed by some silver and stone-grey eye shadow to create the smoky eye.

Black mascara coated the upper line to add some drama, with brown mascara on the lower lashes for a neater finish.

Apply a soft, matte bronzer to cheekbones, under the chin and on the nose, then blend a soft, baby pink blush upward into the bronzer. Finish with a pale pink highlighter that is a few shades lighter than the blush on the apples of the cheeks.

For the lips, select a colour a few hues darker than your natural lip tone and dab onto your fingertip to create a stain.

Ryan Seacrest & Justin Timberlake In Tom Ford – iHeartRadio ’20/20′ Album Release Party With Justin Timberlake

Ryan Seacrest & Justin Timberlake In Tom Ford - iHeartRadio ’20 20? Album Release Party With Justin Timberlake

To celebrate the release of Justin Timberlake’s first album since 2006, The 20/20 Experience, Target and iHeartRadio hosted a party held at El Rey Theatre on Monday in Los Angeles.

Ryan Seacrest: The ‘American Idol’ host stepped out in Tom Ford, wearing a grey jacket and black trousers. It was a bit of a surprise given Ryan’s relationship with Burberry which sees him wearing the British brand exclusively on the red carpet. He is the only celebrity you don’t have to ask, “who are you wearing?” To accent the look, he added a white shirt, a white pocket square, and a black pin-dot tie. Everything fit well and Ryan looked smooth, as usual.

Justin Timberlake: He certainly looked like the centre of the party, wearing a Tom Ford black tuxedo with wide satin peak lapels. Along with his perfectly tailored suit, Justin wore a black shirt with white polka dots and a black knit tie with a gold tie bar. He finished it off with black-and-white Christian Louboutin ‘Junior Flat’ lace-up shoes, a matching pocket square, and a slicked-back side parting. Justin’s ongoing collaboration with Tom Ford has continued since his micro-plaid suit at the 2013 SAG Awards.

Both looks were very clean and fun but, as the star of the show, Justin definitely looked better.
