Ahna O’Reilly In Thakoon – InStyle Summer Soiree

Ahna O'Reilly In Thakoon - InStyle Summer Soiree

Ahna O’Reilly attended the 12th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree held at the Mondrian Los Angeles in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

The ‘Jobs’ actress wore a Thakoon filigree jacquard A-line dress from the Spring 2013 collection featuring a voluminous silhouette, full peplum and an embroidered skirt.

While the shoes were a safe and well-matched option, she added a pop of colour via her neon-pink clutch, which complemented her glossy pink lips.

I’m not too crazy about the wrapped updo, I have to say, but this is yet another great look from the actress.

EF Collection, Dana Rebecca Designs and Jamie Wolf jewels completed her look.

Ashley Madekwe In Diane Von Furstenberg – InStyle Summer Soiree

Ashley Madekwe In Diane Von Furstenberg - InStyle Summer Soiree

Putting her best (well-manicured) foot forward, Ashley Madekwe attended the 12th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree held at the Mondrian Los Angeles in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

When I think of summer soirees I think of pretty floral frocks, but Ashley didn’t play the predictable game; instead, she worked a sexy saffron-yellow Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2013 halter jumpsuit with a deep plunge and draped detailing.

Impeccable styling, as we expect from this British beauty, saw her adding a vintage Chanel No. 5 belt – a find from Very Vintage – her can’t-live-without Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ sandals, and a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch to her bold all-in-one.

A slicked-back ‘do and bold red lips completed her stunning look.

Are you crushing on this look as hard as I am?

Julianne Hough In Bec & Bridge and Halston Heritage – InStyle Summer Soiree

Julianne Hough In Bec & Bridge and Halston Heritage - InStyle Summer Soiree

Julianne Hough attended the 12th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree held at the Mondrian Los Angeles in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

As you know, I have been crushing on Julianne’s style for a while now, and she’s wowed once again wearing a dramatic look consisting of a white Bec & Bridge top and a tulip orange Halston Heritage maxi skirt, which really stood out on this dove-grey red carpet.

Does the look feel a touch over-dramatic for a summer soiree?

Maybe, considering she was the only person who didn’t wear a knee-length look, but she looks so elegant and I love the effortless styling.

The half-up, half-down ‘do and neutral makeup take some of the formality out of the look, which would’ve looked just as good on the Emmys red carpet.

OTT or a perfect way to stand out?
