Olga Kurylenko In J. Mendel – Berlin Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Olga Kurylenko In J Mendel - Berlin Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Saturday (February 14) saw us bid farewell to the Berlinale International Film Festival with the closing ceremony held at the Berlinale Palace in Berlin, Germany, with Olga Kurylenko taking centre stage.

The Ukrainian beauty wore a J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2015 strapless gown in the classic colour-block combo of black and white, with a touch of asymmetry giving the look a modern touch.

I love how this gown marries a sleek crepe fitted body with a silk chiffon pleated underlay that drapes elegantly for a pristine finish with maximum impact.

Shaking up the minimalist nature of the look, she added dazzling earrings for a final flourish.

Lily James In Christian Dior – ‘Cinderella’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Lily James In Christian Dior - 'Cinderella' Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Lily James swept onto the red carpet of the ‘Cinderalla’ premiere at Berlinale Palace during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival on Friday (February 13) in Berlin, Germany.

Having her own enchanted moment, the starlet wore a subtly shimmering, ballet-pink silk gown with pleated detailing and a tonal waistband for shaping.

The beauty of the look was in its minimalist simplicity, in which dainty De Beers jewels provided a graceful touch of sparkle alongside her sleek, centre-parted strands.

Of course, the Jimmy Choo ‘Cinderella’ shoes, commissioned especially for the occasion, were another jewel piece having been encrusted with hundreds of crystals.

Here, Lily is the epitome of a modern princess.

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – ‘Cinderella’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - 'Cinderella' Berlin Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Cate Blanchett captivated during both the ‘Cinderella’ photocall and premiere hosted at the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany on Friday (February 13).

Photocall: At the Grand Hyatt Hotel, the actress who plays the Evil Stepmother in the film couldn’t have looked more chic in a Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 ensemble. The relaxed tailoring of the loose white blouse melded perfectly with the more structured silhouette of the belted skirt and side ruffle detail. The semi-visible balconette bra underneath only added another layer of allure to the look, which she finished with a sophisticated side-parted bun and black Givenchy ‘Matilda’ sandals.

Premiere: Cutting a wickedly good profile, Cate let her hair down for the red carpet at Berlinale Palace and stunned in a bold Givenchy Pre-Fall 2015 metallic gown, slightly modified from the lookbook version. She played her own version of the game of Tetris in the gleaming dress. The pixel-inspired block design was graphic, geometric and glorious, and she balanced it perfectly with Givenchy ‘Clara’ sandals and tousled blonde waves.

An impressive double fashion feature—Queen Cate has done it again.

Lily James In Mary Katrantzou – ‘Cinderella’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall

Lily James In Mary Katrantzou - 'Cinderella' Berlin Film Festival Photocall
Lily James attended the ‘Cinderella’ photocall during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Friday (February 13) in Berlin, Germany.

The actress caught my eye in her Mary Katrantzou Spring 2015 dress in which the designer’s one-time signature engineered prints were instead transformed into the rush of intricate embellishment.

The delicate baby-blue design was given a dynamic and semi-revealing punch with its peek-a-boo sheer embroidery of floral shapes interspersed with iguana-like creatures and the abstract black ruffle at the hem.

As the dress stood on its own, Lily streamlined her styling to only include simple black Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ sandals and a modern, wispy low ponytail.

I loved the fanciful nature of this frock, as it’s in keeping with the fairy tale nature of her film yet provides a strong directional flair.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is the final menswear roundup of the week.

David Oyelowo: Fresh from his Best Actor win at the NAACP Image Awards, David attended the ‘Selma’ photocall during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival on Tuesday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany. Continuing to show plenty of flair, his dark look was lifted by his sharp printed blazer and Louis Leeman metal-toe loafers.

Jamie Dornan: The actor went the more classic route attending the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ London premiere with co-star Dakota Johnson. The Irish actor wore an Alexander McQueen navy suit with his own touch of flare added via a polka skull tie.

Dakota Johnson In Christian Dior – ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Johnson In Christian Dior - 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Johnson attended the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ premiere during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Zoo Palast on Wednesday (February 11) in Berlin, Germany.

So far Dakota has worn only black and white during this promo tour and I expect that to continue, so I wasn’t surprised by her black Dior offering for this premiere.

Her no-fuss style saw her select this long-sleeve deep plunging dress with only a cascade of buttons providing any detail.

Sexy and sleek, the look was amped up with a deep rouge lip and sexy bed hair.

Are you already bored by this promo tour or is her style seemingly perfectly in tune with the movie?

For me, I will go with the latter – for now.
