Zoe Saldana In Balmain – ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Press Line: Comic Con 2013

Zoe Saldana In Balmain - 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Press Line Comic Con 2013

Zoe Saldana also stepped out for Comic-Con 2013, attending the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ press line on Saturday in San Diego, California.

Our fashion-girl turned again to Balmain for her on-trend appearance, this time strutting out an overalls-inspired, denim-look jumpsuit from the Resort 2014 collection.

The ruched sweetheart neckline of the zipper-back bodice and gold chain-link straps staked a glam claim against the relaxed, boyish slouch of the pleated, cuff trousers.

Whilst Zoe did justice to designer Olivier Rousteing’s dynamic dungarees and helped to restore my faith in the jumpsuit, I was left with the impression that something might be missing.

She could have handled the lookbook’s bling-y, super-embellishment, but she pared back the styling for Comic-Con’s casual M.O. Still, I was craving some added flash and, if anything, I would have just added a waist-cinching belt.

Christian Louboutin ‘Vaquettababa’ peep-toe pumps (first seen on Amy Adams), minimalistic EF Collection jewels and a sleekly coiffed high ponytail completed the look.

Nina Dobrev In Sachin + Babi – ‘The Vampires Diaries’ Press Line: Comic Con 2013

Nina Dobrev In Sachin + Babi - 'The Vampires Diaries' Press Line Comic Con 2013

Nina Dobrev played the ultimate cool-girl on Saturday, as she walked ‘The Vampire Diaries’ press line at Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego, California.

The actress brought a whiff of fresh fashion air to the day with her Sachin + Babi Resort 2014 top and shorts.

I would have never thought twice about the lookbook version of the black-and-white striped top, splashed at the side with a distorted, watercolour floral print, which also vividly bloomed on the shorts.

But Nina’s edgier, polished styling of the pieces, with the pushed-up sleeves and tucked-in shirt, not to mention those playful, metallic ultraviolet Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps had me in full-on covet mode.

Long, loose waves and a bright pink pout added a flourish of girly flair.

Emily Blunt In Wes Gordon – Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures Preview: Comic Con 2013

Emily Blunt In Wes Gordon - Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures Preview Comic Con 2013

Among the crush of Comic-Con 2013‘s trending monochrome, Emily Blunt boldly stood out from the PYT pack at the Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures preview on Saturday at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

Punching up the proceedings, the actress brought a bolt of colour in her Wes Gordon navy-and-pink filigree-printed scuba sheath dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

Electric-fuchsia ‘Floria’ cutout suede sandals by Rupert Sanderson further intensified the chromatic spectrum, as did that light bubblegum lip.

With minimal accessories, the hot hues were the main attraction here, so I wish the curve-hugging frock hadn’t fallen quite so long on Emily’s frame.

Elizabeth Olsen In Balenciaga – ‘Godzilla’ Preview: Comic Con 2013

Elizabeth Olsen In Balenciaga - 'Godzilla' Preview Comic Con 2013

Staying in tune with Comic-Con 2013’s sartorial trend of black and white, Elizabeth Olsen stepped out for the ‘Godzilla’ preview on Saturday at San Diego Convention Center in California.

Ashley and Mary Kate’s style-forward younger sis made a monochromatic statement in a top and micro shorts from Alexander Wang’s Balenciaga Resort 2014 coolly austere collection.

At first glance, the starlet was playing a plain-Jane role.

But there was an architectural simplicity to the separates that was quietly intriguing, what with the cropped Watteau-back silhouette of the shirt and the draped peplum-inspired detail that floated across the shorts.

Robert Clergerie’s ‘Nantys’ ankle-strap, block-heeled sandals, along with beach-y blonde waves, added a youthful, fun edge.

Jennifer Lawrence In Proenza Schouler – ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Press Line: Comic Con 2013

Jennifer Lawrence In Proenza Schouler - 'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' Press Line Comic Con 2013

Like Lily Collins, Jennifer Lawrence kept it black and white at Comic-Con 2013’s ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ press line on Saturday in San Diego, California, which she attended with co-star Josh Hutcherson.

On this occasion, the Miss Dior girl found inspiration in another label with this Proenza Schouler Resort 2014 monochromatic ensemble featuring a zebra-inspired, zigzag crop tee and white asymmetrical, A-line skirt that was more apron-like than A-plus.

This outing may have been more successful than her other recent cropped entrance—at least from the waist up—but it still didn’t connect all the dots.

The Nicholas Kirkwood slingback ankle boots really prompted some sole-searching for a more appropriate pair. Black lace booties were an unusual counterpoint to this sportier PS ensemble and even had me wishing for black pumps—for a split second.

A braided updo, perhaps inspired by Katniss Everdeen, and bronzed makeup finished the look.

Minka Kelly In Thakoon – ‘Almost Human’ Press Line: Comic Con 2013

Minka Kelly In Thakoon - 'Almost Human' Press Line Comic Con 2013

Minka Kelly sweetened up the spirited Comic-Con 2013, when she attended Friday’s ‘Almost Human’ press line in San Diego, California.

Her sorbet-striped, embossed jacquard frock from Thakoon’s Resort 2013 collection was melon- and vanilla-flavoured.

The structured mini, which she matched to peach-rimmed Casadei nude pumps, was nipped in with darts and featured domineering short sleeves.

A blush-tinged DVF ‘Flirty Lip’ minaudière and EF Collection sunburst earrings added a sprinkle of sass.

The actress whipped up the rest of her look with a girly, side-parted ponytail and creamy nude makeup tones.
