Asher Keddie In J’Aton Couture – 10th Annual ASTRA Awards

My Australian readers have reliably informed me that Asher Keddie is one of Australia’s most stylish stars and she proved that last night as she took to the red carpet for the 10th Annual ASTRA Awards, held at Sydney Theatre in Sydney, Australia.

Dressed in a J’Aton Couture gown, the white frock features a deep plunging neckline and a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

A studded white belt gives the look an unexpected twist but the look doesn’t lose any of its elegance.

With a bold red lip colour, the actress completed her look with a purposely messy braided ‘do.

Halo braids are most definitely the look for summer.

Katherine Jenkins In Richard Nicoll – Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot

Katherine Jenkins attended Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse in England yesterday.

The singer wore a Richard Nicoll Spring 2012 dress.

Her floral grey frock is not only longer than the version which took the runway but also has sheer panels around the midriff and on the skirt.

What could’ve been a full matchy-matchy look is interrupted by some nude slingbacks.

I love the hat and makeup on this occasion, but the shoes could’ve been better.

From this picture you can’t tell that the weather was horrendous yesterday, so bravo to Katherine for braving the cold and rainy conditions in this mini frock.

Jessica Stroup In Amen – ‘Ted’ LA Premiere

I almost didn’t recognise Jessica Stroup on the red carpet at the ‘Ted’ premiere, held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California last night.

Sporting longer, thicker locks, the ‘90210’ actress wore a sexy Amen dress.

Her LWD with leather and sequin shimmering embellishments was styled with nude satin Jimmy Choo heels, a Jimmy Choo nude clutch and Broken English jewels.

I love the smoky eyes and the pretty pink pout, but I’m not bowled over by the accessories.

Blake Lively Announced As The Face Of Gucci’s New Fragrance: Gucci Première

Blake Lively has been unveiled as the face of Gucci Première, the next female fragrance for the fashion house.

Frida Giannini, Gucci Creative Director, said, “In conceiving this fragrance I was inspired by timeless Hollywood glamour and the iconic leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden era. Blake’s unique style and charisma brings that allure to life in a very contemporary way.”

Blake Lively stated, “It is a pleasure to collaborate with Frida Giannini. I admire the qualities of the Gucci Première woman and feel honored to represent the fragrance.”

The print campaign for the new fragrance was shot by Mert & Marcus, and the commercial film was directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. The short film will be presented at a special event during the Venice Film Festival on September 1st, 2012.

Blake joins Evan Rachel Wood, Chris Evans and James Franco in representing Gucci’s fragrances.

Hopefully this will mean us seeing Blake Lively in Gucci Première gowns during her promo tour.

I can’t wait.

WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party at The Roof Gardens

Fashion and tennis collided at the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party, held at The Roof Gardens in Kensington, London last night.

We have already seen Maria Sharapova. Here are the rest of the attendees who took to the green carpet.

Serena Williams: The tennis ace was once again dressed by Burberry for this annual event. Her purple taffeta frock with black sheer straps was styled with black t-bar sandals and a selection of silver jewels. The thing I love most about her look are her voluminous curls.

Ana Ivanovic: The young star wore a pretty Matthew Williamson feather-accented frock which complemented her statuesque frame. The stunning lace dress also features a cluster of gold paillettes and beaded details. It may seem like quite a lot of detail, but she carries it off with great aplomb. She accessorized with Christian Louboutin matching heels with a gold toe-cap and a mahogany clutch.
Whilst I love the elegant updo, I wish she applied fake tan to her feet. I guess that is what happens when training in sunny conditions wearing thick tennis socks.

Anne Keothavong: The British number one ranked player wore a baroque-inspired Alexander McQueen ‘Fil’ coupé jacquard green-and-black dress. She styled her look with tights (it’s been a while since I saw tights on the red carpet), black pumps (the same can’t be said for those) and a sweeping ponytail.

Katy Perry In Roland Mouret – Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Katy Perry can do quirky, crazy, sexy and cool when it comes to event dressing.

She went down the sexy route when donning this Roland Mouret Spring 2012 dress for her guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ yesterday evening to promote her new 3D documentary-concert movie, ‘Part of Me’.

Her navy blue dress with a ruffle detail cascading down the skirt and artful red tulip appliqués doesn’t have the midriff cut-out like the version which took to the runway, thankfully. It could’ve been a very different story.

I’m delighted she selected the more demure version.

It’s been a while since I’ve celebrated a Katy Perry look, and with the choice of sexy red ankle-strap platform peep-toes, she bags herself a spot on the BDOTW poll.
