Salma Hayek In YSL Edition Soir – ‘La Chispa De La Vida’ Berlinale Film Festival

Salma Hayek attended the Berlinale Film Festival premiere for ‘La Chispa de la Vida’ in Germany last night.

The actress wore a YSL Edition Soir 2012 gown.

Her black lace and mousseline embroidered gown is a huge departure from what we’re used to seeing from Salma.

Whilst I appreciate the direction, the end result is matronly as she’s aged about 20 years.

A black velvet YSL minaudiere, Boucheron emerald jewels and a simple bun completed her look.

Ni Ni In Christian Dior Couture – ‘The Flower of War’ Berlinale Film Festival

The Christian Dior Spring 2011 Couture collection had its second outing this week courtesy of Asian actress Ni Ni.

She hit the red carpet during the 2012 Berlinale Film Festival for ‘The Flowers of War’ premiere wearing a strapless Dior Couture blue-and-black gown accented with feathers and a rise-and-fall skirt which falls from the empire waist.

The gown looks stunning on the runway, but kinda lacklustre on Nini, as she doesn’t have enough presence to carry that layered skirt.

Lea Seydoux In Elie Saab – ‘L’Enfant d’En Haut’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

French actress Lea Seydoux is still in Germany where she attended the ‘L’Enfant d’En Haut’ premiere during the 2012 Berlinale Film Festival on Tuesday evening.

My best dressed of last week puts herself back in contention again this week wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2011 gown.

Her black wool gown with pleated lace detailing was styled with gold accessories including a clutch and a large cocktail ring.

Poker-straight hair, which she swept behind her ears, and barely-there makeup completed her look.

BDOTW contender?

Andrea Riseborough In Christian Dior – ‘Shadow Dancer’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

Andrea Riseborough attended the ‘Shadow Dancer’ premiere during the 2012 Berlinale Film Festival on Sunday evening.

She wore a Christian Dior Resort 2012 nude long-sleeve dress.

I only have one recurring word for this look. No.

No to the green necklace, no to the dress which is washing her out, no to the hair and no to the ghostly makeup.

Since Andrea became a red carpet regular I have loved pretty much all of her looks. That run ended very abruptly today.

She is so much better than this.

An emerald Swarovski satin clutch completed her look.

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Balenciaga – 2012 Berlinale Film Festival

Balenciaga’s Creative Director, Nicolas Ghesquière, has forged a powerful bond with Charlotte Gainsbourg.

The French actress and singer is regarded as his muse and she has recently fronted the campaign for Balenciaga’s latest fragrance, l’Essence.

Charlotte is one of the jury members for Berlinale Film Festival, so we shouldn’t be surprised that all her looks so far have been Balenciaga.

On Thursday she joined Jake Gyllenhaal for the Jury Photocall during day one of the 62nd Berlinale Film Festival.

She wore one of my favourite looks from the Balenciaga Spring 2012 collection which included a simple white vest, paired with terracotta pants with an orange pocket.

This is a great look for Charlotte, but I prefer the colour of the runway shoes.

Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli Couture – ‘Les Adieux de la Reine’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

Following the photocall earlier today, Diane Kruger attended the premiere of ‘Les Adieux de la Reine’ during the 2012 Berlinale Film Festival this evening.

Diane pulled out all the stops for the premiere, wearing a glamorous Giambattista Valli Couture 2012 gown.

You may recall that Diane was in the front row for the couture show last month, so it looks like this beauty caught her well-trained, fashion-savvy eye.

Ever the fearless dresser, Diane chose one of the more eccentric gowns with a polka-dot print, blouson neckline and cascading sequins.

A metal belt cinched in her waist as she completed her look with a Judith Leiber ‘Wildcat’ embellished clutch, a sleek updo and neutral makeup.

Which of Diane’s Berlinale looks would you like to see up for BDOTW?

This look or her photocall look?
