Imogen Poots In Marc Jacobs – ‘A Long Way Down’ Berlin Film Festival

Imogen Poots In Marc Jacobs - 'A Long Way Down' Berlin Film Festival

Imogen Poots was promoting her latest movie, ‘A Long Way Down’ during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival on Monday (February 10).

For both the photocall and the premiere she wore dresses by Marc Jacobs.

Photo call: Posing alongside co-star Aaron Paul (in Billy Reid), Imogen was pretty and demure for the photocall, dressed in a knee-length dark-green frock with black chiffon ruffles on the shoulders and neckline. The look was styled with Brian Atwood black platform sandals and a signature wavy high ponytail.

Premiere: The ponytail was still firmly in place for the premiere. However, with this sheer embroidered v-neck Marc Jacobs dress revealing her underwear, I’m sure no one was really paying attention to the hair. This look might cause outrage, but I find myself really liking it. It’s not overtly sexy, she carries it with confidence and the top half is thankfully covered. I have a feeling I may be standing alone.

Diane Kruger In Elie Saab – ‘The Better Angels’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Diane Kruger In Elie Saab - 'The Better Angels' Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Diane Kruger attended ‘The Better Angels’ premiere during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Haus der Berliner Festspiele on Monday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany.

Wearing her second look of the evening, the German actress went from heavily embellished in Chanel, to minimalist in Elie Saab.

It’s not often the words “minimalist” and “Elie Saab” are used it the same sentence. However, the actress is radiant here, wearing a stark white long-sleeve crew-neck gown with an on-trend sheer skirt accented with a white leather belt with a gold clasp from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

Opting for a bold red lip color, she also switched up her hair for her third outing of the day, sweeping the right side behind her hair, while leaving the left side free flowing.

The Chanel look has received mixed reactions, so how does this cleaner, sharper look fare?

Diane Kruger In Chanel – ‘The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Diane Kruger In Chanel - 'The Galapagos Affair Satan Came to Eden' Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Following the photocall earlier in the day, Diane Kruger attended ‘The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden’ premiere during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Haus der Berliner Festspiele on Monday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany.

The German actress donned a beautiful Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 ensemble featuring a crisp white shirt accented with a smaller black bow plus a collarless jacket and a sheer-hemmed skirt decorated with red, white and blue star appliqués.

Accessorizing with a black clutch, on this occasion the footwear was much improved as the blonde beauty selected her favourite black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ strappy sandals.

Keeping the ’40s rolled updo from the photocall, her makeup was even more flawless this time around.

While this look isn’t too unexpected, the presentation and styling is impeccable; guaranteeing her a spot on the BDOTW list.

Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli – ‘The Better Angels’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall

Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli - 'The Better Angels' Berlin Film Festival Photocall

Diane Kruger started her day attending ‘The Better Angels’ photocall during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany.

The actress wore a black-and-white fit-and-flare Giambattista Valli Pre-Fall 2014 frock featuring a sequined bodice and silk skirt, with a floral pattern accenting the waist and skirt.

Throwing delicacy out of the window, she styled her look with black socks and Chanel boots which toughened up the look.

I’m not offended or turned off by the boots, because if anyone can make them work Diane can.

Uma Thurman In Chanel & Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Nymphomaniac’ Berlin Film Festival Photocall and Premiere

Uma Thurman In Chanel & Dolce & Gabbana - 'Nymphomaniac' Berlin Film Festival Photocall and Premiere

Uma Thurman attended the ‘Nymphomaniac’ photocall and premiere during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Berlinale Palast on Sunday (February 9) in Berlin, Germany.

The one person you can rely on to bring some glamour to any film festival is Uma Thurman, but I am totally underwhelmed on this occasion.

Photocall: The actress kept it simple and casual wearing a Chanel Fall 2013 black wool and cashmere knit pullover with black trousers and black boots. Only the hair and makeup excite me on this occasion.

Premiere: There was no razzle, no dazzle, no sweeping me off my feet; just a black Dolce & Gabbana column dress styled with a Carolina Herrera plum fur shrug, Manolo Blahnik black pumps and Chopard jewels.

Beautiful, yes, but lacking in the wow factor I expected from her.

Menswear Roundup

Menswear Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some gentlemen who took to the red carpet yesterday evening (February 6).

Joel Kinnaman: The actor joined his beautiful girlfriend Olivia Munn on the red carpet for the ‘RoboCop’ Stockholm premiere. After donning black for the London premiere, he delights wearing a rich burgundy-hued Ermenegildo Zegna two-button notched-lapel suit, keeping it tonal with a darker shirt and even darker tie. The look was styled once again with his Kurt Geiger London ‘Hornton’ shoes. Of the two looks, I much prefer this one, not only for the colour, but also this look feels a lot sharper.

Edward Norton: Also wearing Ermenegildo Zegna, the actor kept it classic in a navy two-button shawl-collar suit while attending ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Berlinale premiere alongside Tilda Swinton, Lea Seydoux and Saoirse Ronan. As great as he looks, my eyes immediately go to his wife Shauna Robertson’s dramatic ombre strapless gown. He wore double monk shoes by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture.

Greta Gerwig In Lanvin – ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

Greta Gerwig In Lanvin - ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

Greta Gerwig attended ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ premiere, which served as the opening ceremony of the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Berlinale Palast on Thursday (February 6) in Berlin, Germany.

The actress, and jury member for this festival, wore a Lanvin Spring 2014 custom-made bronze liquid lamé tiered gown featuring black grosgrain detailing and a black woven belt with crystal paisley accents.

Usually, when I’m not sure about a dress, I say to myself ‘could Diane Kruger, Cate Blanchett or Tilda Swinton pull this off?’ If my answer is no, then I know I really don’t like it. That is sadly the case on this occasion.

Between the colour and the tiered detailing on the hips, this has to be my least favourite custom piece by the great Monsieur Alber Elbaz.
