Lena Dunham In Thakoon – 2013 DGA Awards

Lena Dunham In Thakoon - 2013 DGA Awards‘Girls’ millennial director/actress Lena Dunham is definitely having her time in the popularity spotlight; she walked another red carpet and picked up another trophy at last night’s 2013 Directors Guild of America Awards, hosted at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles, California.

I just wish she was dressing better for the occasion.

Although she wore a custom Thakoon, the fit of the strapless satin creation was unkempt and daresay sloppy. And the sash-like appendage in the back was just strange.

While it was nice to see Lena in a bright hue and the frock embraced spring’s obsession with color blocking, the cloying magenta and red hues clashed.

Or maybe I was just too blinded by the poor fit, or those distracting tattoos, or even the nude Jimmy Choo ‘Crown’ peep-toes that were a boring-at-best afterthought.

Perhaps some jewelry may have helped make this a better equation.

You can buy Lena’s Jimmy Choo ‘Crown’ peep-toes from Jimmy Choo US, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks.com.

Bérénice Bejo In Louis Vuitton – 2013 DGA Awards

Bérénice Bejo In Louis Vuitton - 2013 DGA AwardsYesterday evening, Bérénice Bejo attended the 2013 Directors Guild of America Awards at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center in California.

Leaving behind Louis Vuitton’s popular Spring 2013 checquerboard collection, the French actress looked ahead to Pre-Fall 2013 with her black-and-bronze sequined dress from the designer.

The retro-inspired collar and dropped waist perhaps inspired her side-swept pin waves, but it all translated as a bit muddled, especially when mixed with a casual LV clutch.

Like the lookbook, she popped up the dark, moody moment with an on-trend matte red lip and matching manicure and pedicure.

Her matching gold-and-black LV sandal lifted the heaviness even more, but I found the ankle strap that cut the line of her leg rather bothersome.

Jennifer Garner In Antonio Berardi – 2013 DGA Awards

Jennifer Garner In Antonio Berardi - 2013 DGA AwardsTaking the red-carpet ride for another spin in support of her husband, ‘Argo’ star Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner attended the 2013 Directors Guild of America Awards last night, hosted at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center in California.

While Ben won DGA’s top prize for his CIA thriller, Jennifer shone brightly in her pristine white Antonio Berardi Resort 2013 fitted frock, featuring a smattering of mini-floral embellishment at the bodice.

She interpreted the dress more formally than the designer’s lookbook version, opting for an air of simplicity by skipping the waist-cinching belt and the burnt orange shoes.

Instead, a flash of silver came into play via the Salvatore Ferragamo box clutch and peep-toe heels, while sparkle came courtesy of Cartier jewels.

Offsetting the high neckline, she smartly pulled her hair back into an updo and added a pop of color with a berry lip.

Do you like Jennifer’s sophisticated twist on the look?

Quvenzhane Wallis In David Meister – 2013 DGA Awards

Quvenzhane Wallis In David Meister - 2013 DGA AwardsA pretty-in-pink Quvenzhane Wallis walked another red carpet last night at the 2013 Directors Guild of America Awards, hosted at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center in California.

Wearing her second David Meister frock in as many days, the young starlet posed in a custom satin cocktail dress that was less formal but just as sweet as her 2013 NAACP Image Awards look.

The bright bubblegum color and the girly floral embroidery, all tied up with an organza sash and a pair of sparkly flats, was fun and age-appropriate.

She swapped her beloved poodle bag for another breed, a cute bulldog, and contrasted all that pink with a light blue clip in her curled locks.

Michelle Williams In Chanel Couture – 2012 Annual Directors Guild Of America Awards

Michelle Williams accepted the ‘Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary’ for ‘Project Nim’ on behalf of James Marsh at the 2012 Directors Guild Of America Awards in Hollywood, California this weekend.

She went back into the archives to select this Chanel Fall 2007 Couture gown.

The one-shoulder black gown with embellished details on the shoulder and along the bodice also reveals more embellishments via the thigh-high split.

The look is mesmerizing on the runway, but falls a bit flat on Michelle.

Maybe it was one of those ‘better in the flesh’ looks.

Amber Heard In Roland Mouret – 2012 Directors Guild Of America Awards

Amber Heard looked beautiful, as always, whilst gliding down the red carpet at the 2012 Directors Guild of America Awards in Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

The blonde beauty wore a Roland Mouret Grindley navy jersey dress with Cathy Waterman jewels.

Whilst the dress peeps, drapes, plunges and hugs in all the right places, it’s a tad sheer.

In some pictures you can see her underwear which is unfortunate.

Luscious locks and pretty pink lips completed her look.

Jennifer Aniston In Dolce & Gabbana – 2012 Annual Directors Guild Of America

Jennifer Aniston arrived on the red carpet for the 2012 Directors Guild Of America Awards in Hollywood, California on Saturday evening with boyfriend Justin Theroux.

The actress gave us no surprises wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 strapless black dress.

Whilst this look sticks to Jennifer’s tried and trusted formula; LBD, glossy straight locks and black sandals, I have to admit that she does look really good.

The texture and embellishments on her dress, which she teams with her favourite Celine heels and a Ferragamo clutch, keeps me interested.

Does this look get a pass from you? Or are you o.v.e.r Jennifer in LBD’s?
