Lea Michele In Alberta Ferretti – 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

Lea Michele has had a fantastic red carpet run recently despite the oversized shoes, which we couldn’t see at the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

The ‘Glee’ actress wore an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2011 black gown with velvet floral details.

Her halter has been understandable lined from the runway, so I had to look to what else was bugging me about this look.

It’s the hair. The braided headband isn’t working for me.

I’m also not keen on the fact that in comparison to everyone else at this event she appears to be a tad overdressed.

Plus she doesn’t really have the height to pull off this look.

Jayma Mays In Zuhair Murad – 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

Jayma Mays was pretty in pink at the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

The ‘Glee’ actress has been seen a lot recently on the red carpet giving us a variety looks with varying success.

On this occasion she wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 mini dress.

Her gorgeous pale pink one-sleeve dress has a delicate beaded detail on the sleeve and skirt plus a pink ribbon accent.

I love everything about this look save the heavy pumps.

Why wear something so delicate and heavenly if you’re going to weigh it down with heavy metallic pumps?

Swarovski jewels completed her look.

Diane Kruger In Jason Wu – 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree

Diane Kruger opted for a super cute look at the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree which was held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, California yesterday.

The German actress wore a Jason Wu Resort 2012 head-to-toe ensemble.

She stole Brad Goreski’s look by teaming black shorts with a navy blazer and a white pleated bibbed shirt which was accented with a black bow tie.

Her Jason Wu Resort 2012 accessories included an eggshell ‘Emma’ python clutch and a pair of ‘Arizona’ strappy sandals which are to-die-for.

Only Diane (Chloe Sevigny and Leighton Meester) can pull off these type of looks.

It wouldn’t surprise me if Mr Wu designed this with Diane in mind.

A purposely messy side bun, dark plum nails and pink glossy lips completed her look.

9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree – Amber Heard In Dolce & Gabbana

My best dressed at the 9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree was Amber Heard.

My girl of the moment channeled her inner ‘Betty Draper’ in a non-cheesy way.

You have to possess a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to pull of this type of look without looking like an extra from “Mad Men”.

Amber carries this look with aplomb.

The “Zombieland” actress went for a colour-block Dolce & Gabbana dress with a peplum at the waist.

The look is elegant, classic and timeless.

I especially love the hair which helps bring this 60s vibe to life.

Black peep-toes, a black clutch and Miriam Haskell jewels complete this stunning look.

BDOTW contender for me.

9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree – Kim Kardashian In Victoria Beckham Collection

Well, well. Now this is a surprise.

Kim Kardashian attended the 9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree yesterday wearing a Victoria Beckham Fall 2010 LBD.

The dress fits her perfectly.

We all know Kim is very proud of her curves and that she loves to show off her tiny waist. This dress flatters those curves and cinches in her waist.

Kim could’ve picked one of the many well worn looks like so many other celebs before her, but she picked a pencil dress we’ve haven’t seen on the red carpet.

We have of course seen those Trib Two’s a billion times before.

She’s not my favourite on the red carpet, but I like to give credit when it’s due.

Well played Kim.
