Julie Benz In Elena Reva & Rhea Costa – 54th Monte Carlo TV Festival

Julie Benz In Elena Reva & Rhea Costa - 54th Monte Carlo TV Festival

Julie Benz joined Bellamy Young and Jennifer Morrison in Monte-Carlo for the 54th Monte Carlo TV Festival this week.

While you think I may have over-looked the actress, I honestly didn’t recognise her with her new raven hair colour. As someone who often doesn’t like dramatic changes, I am surprised at how much I love the new colour.

In the space of four days, she gave us four great looks. Each one better than the last.

‘Defiance’ Photocall: On Monday (June 9) she started off the week in fine style attending the ‘Defiance’ photocall wearing a pretty watercolour floral print you may recognise as Elena Reva. You may remember that both Holland Roden and Jennifer Morrison have donned this print. The look was styled with Rupert Sanderson silver mirrored ‘Elba’ pumps, Karine Sultan and a Suzanne Kalan.

Cocktail Reception: Wearing the same Rupert Sanderson from earlier in the day, the actress opted for a super sexy glam look for the cocktail reception on Monday evening. The vivid red hue of her part-lace, part-chiffon Rhea Costa dress works wonders with her new dyed tresses. Le Vian earrings and a M.C.L. ring perfected this stunning look.

Jaime Murray In  Alexa von Canisius - 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony

Jaime Murray attended the closing ceremony of the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival on Wednesday (June 11) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The British ‘Defiance’ actress perfectly showcased summer evening dressing wearing an Alexa von Canisius ethereal plunging lavender chiffon floral-print gown.

This is such a wonderful tonic, styled with green accessories, including a Lauren Merkin ‘Mini Caroline’ clutch, drawing out the subtle hue in the print.

Jennifer Morrison In Georges Hobeika Signature – 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony

Jennifer Morrison In Georges Hobeika Signature - 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony

Jennifer Morrison attended the closing ceremony of the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival on Wednesday (June 11) in Monte Carlo, Monaco after a succession of lovely looks.
As the saying goes, all good things come to an end.

I was sad to not be a fan of her second Georges Hobeika gown, which came from the designer’s Spring 2014 signature collection.

The mint colour is divine against her skin-tone, as are the silhouette and embellishments; it’s the illusion bodice that I object to.

Picturing this as a sleeveless dress sans illusion, I’m sure I would’ve loved the look entirely.

Also, the braided schoolmarm hairdo may also be throwing me off this look.

A Oroton ‘Freize’ clutch provided the finishing touch.

Bellamy Young In Naeem Khan – 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony

Bellamy Young In Naeem Khan - 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony

Bellamy Young attended the closing ceremony of the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival on Wednesday (June 11) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The ‘Scandal’ actress must have caused quite a stir with that plunging neckline on her Naeem Khan Spring 2014 black long-sleeved trumpet gown.

My eyes should’ve headed straight to the divine white floral embroidery, but they didn’t.

As the saying goes, if you’ve got it flaunt it; thankfully, though, she didn’t decide to flaunt it à la LaLa Anthony.

A red pout, black clutch, selection of silver jewels and wavy updo completed her look.

Ana Ortiz arrived at the closing ceremony of the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival on Wednesday (June 11) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The ‘Devious Maids’ actress wore a Badgley Mischka Spring 2014 V-neck gown enriched with shimmering crystals and intricate beadwork on a layer of lace which trails behind in a short train.

Keeping the colours neutral, she added a blush clutch, shimmering pink lip colour and Danielle Queller jewels to complete her look.

Bellamy Young In Alice + Olivia – ‘Scandal’ Monte Carlo Television Festival Photocall

Bellamy Young In Alice + Olivia - 'Scandal' Monte Carlo Television Festival Photocall

Bellamy Young attended the ‘Scandal’ photocall held at the Grimaldi Forum during the 54th Monte Carlo TV Festival on Monday (June 9) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The actress, who we are using to seeing in chic skirt suits portraying the First Lady, opted for a summery look, hitting the season’s trends of breton stripes and florals.

I probably would’ve opted for one or the other, pairing a solid-coloured top with the Alice + Olivia ‘Tina’ ball gown skirt featuring a vintage floral print.

How would you have styled this look?

This skirt has been worn twice before, by Bella Thorne and Zosia Mamet.

You can buy Bellamy’s Alice + Olivia Tina Floral Ball Gown Skirt from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.

Jennifer Morrison In Jasper Conran – ‘Once Upon A Time’ Monte Carlo Television Festival Photocall

Jennifer Morrison In Jasper Conran -  'Once Upon A Time' Monte Carlo Television Festival Photocall

Jennifer Morrison attended the ‘Once Upon A Time’ photocall during the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival held at the Grimaldi Forum on Monday (June 9) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Opting for nude tones, the actress wore a Jasper Conran sheer top and leather skirt, which she styled with black accessories including a Christian Louboutin clutch and Grey Mer platform sandals.

I’m surprised at how much I like this look considering the sheerness and that there is no pop of colour.

Had it not been for the black accessories, this look may have felt a tad one note.

A part-braided hairdo completed her look.

Darby Stanchfield In Georges Hobeika – 53rd Monte Carlo TV Festival Closing Ceremony

Darby Stanchfield In Georges Hobeika - 53rd Monte Carlo TV Festival Closing Ceremony

Joshua Malina and Darby Stanchfield, stars of the hit TV show ‘Scandal’, attended the closing ceremony of the 53rd Monte Carlo TV Festival in Monaco on Thursday evening.

Adding a high dose of glamour to the proceedings, Darby looked stunning wearing a Georges Hobeika Spring 2013 gown.

Her golden sparkler, featuring a scooped neckline and a gorgeous train, was styled with a gold clutch and triple-drop earrings, with her beautiful flame-coloured wavy locks swept over one shoulder.

A BDOTW-worthy contender if I ever saw one.

2009 Monte Carlo Television Festival Closing Ceremony

When I saw Emily Deschanel on red carpet wearing this Gustavo Cadile strapless gown I instantly recognised it, because I tried it on during New York Fashion Week, when I visited the designer at his Manhattan studio.

The outstanding rose tulle gown is from Gustavo Cadile’s Fall 2009 collection. I adore the tiered skirt which make it feel like a princess gown.

I was surprised that Emily wore a black knotted belt with the dress, because the pink bejeweled ribbon was perfect. But either way it works.

I love that she didn’t add too many jewels, or even carry a clutch as this dress stands alone.

I’m so honoured to have tried on this gown, and I can imagine the butterflies she had when she put on this gown.

Kate Walsh showed off her very sassy side in a baby blue Missoni dress, with a thigh high split.

For some reason I’m more in love with her hair. Those curls are so cute and look so bouncy.

Jennifer Love Hewitt arrived with her actor boyfriend Jamie Kennedy looking exquisite wearing a nude gown. She was radiating beauty. I’ve never been so taken by her.

This gown with a risqué plunging neckline more than makes up for the previous secretary chic look.

I don’t know why but I was totally captivated by Spanish actress Marta Torne.

Her porcelain skin, the sexy silhouette of her slate grey strapless ruched bodice gown, and those bold red lips are all perfect. Not a single fault can I find.

Such a quiet elegant beauty, I adore her here.

Lori Loughlin looks amazing again. This time wearing a navy blue haltered gown, with an embellished neckline.

Her look was complete with a gold box clutch which complemented the gold detail on her gown.

Kim Kardashian for me the worst dressed at this event. She did a complete 180 from her previous looks.

I love her hair and make-up, but the Ports 1961 strapless gown is way too gaudy for my liking. The runway version wouldn’t have suited her either.

This is a bit of a step back imo.
