Diane Kruger In Carven – Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon

Diane Kruger In Carven - Hollywood Foreign Press Association's 2013 Installation Luncheon

Diane Kruger was also at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel yesterday afternoon in California, where she was joined onstage by actor Demian Bishir.

The German actress put a fashion-girl spin on plaid, donning a Carven Resort 2014 strapless, drape-front midi dress, complete with side pockets. Who knew tartan could look this fresh?

Veering away from the flat loafer-sandals seen on the model, she moderately dressed up the frock with a pair of dove-grey Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals that matched the muted plaid tones.

I nearly expected to see the ubiquitous white pump make an appearance here, so I was pleasantly surprised with the subtle change of pace.

A loose side ponytail and a radiant, berry lip put the finishing touches on this effortlessly chic entrance.

Nicole Kidman In Narciso Rodriguez – Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon

Nicole Kidman In Narciso Rodriguez - Hollywood Foreign Press Association's 2013 Installation Luncheon

Nicole Kidman attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday afternoon in California.

The flame-haired actress complemented her strawberry waves (and her statuesque frame) with a dark teal-green Narciso Rodriguez body-contoured dress with spliced shoulder cutouts.

She accentuated the sleek, sophisticated silhouette quite simply with a Bottega Veneta black crocodile clutch and a pair of small jade earrings, avoiding the temptation to clutter the neckline with more embellishment.

The face of Jimmy Choo’s Autumn Winter 2013 campaign, Nicole switched her soles to a favoured pair of Nicholas Kirkwood metallic- and patent-leather ankle-strap sandals with a snakeskin-covered heel.

Christina Hendricks In Dolce & Gabbana & Badgley Mischka – Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon

Christina Hendricks joined Jordana Brewster, Kerry Washington, Carla Gugino and Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet at The Beverly Hills Hotel for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon on Thursday afternoon in California.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress teamed a Dolce & Gabbana sheer black chiffon blouse with a black satin bow accent along with a Badgley Mischka high-waisted pencil skirt.

She styled her look with black peep-toes, with the only pop of colour, other than her red hair, coming via her L’Wren Scott deep-red clutch.

Wavy curls completed a sophisticated, yet boring look.

Hopefully she will take our advice and get the stylist from ‘Mad Men’ to be her red carpet stylist.

Jennifer Lawrence In Narciso Rodriguez – Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon

After a red carpet hiatus following her epic ‘Hunger Games’ press tour back in April, Jennifer Lawrence attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon in Beverly Hills on Thursday afternoon.

The young starlet showed off some skin in a low-cut Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2013 black-and-white snake print jacquard silk dress.

Black Christian Louboutin pumps add to the mature vibe of the skirt, while loose beachy waves play-up the wild snakeskin print.

Carla Gugino In Amanda Wakeley – Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon

Carla Gugino joined a host of stars on the red carpet at The Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday afternoon, for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon.

Jumping on the orange trend, which celebrities have been embracing the last few weeks, the actress looked gorgeous wearing an Amanda Wakeley Fall 2011 dress.

Her fitted scuba dress with double straps and an open back was styled with complementary gold accessories including H.Stern’s Oscar Niemeyer bracelet.

I love the clutch, gold hooped earrings and cuff, but those python pumps should’ve been replaced with some more elegant strappy sandals or peep-toes.

Naturally wavy tresses and a glossy pink lip colour completed her look.
