Front Row @ Jason Wu Spring 2014

Front Row @ Jason Wu Spring 2014

Designer Jason Wu’s always anticipated NYFW show took place yesterday, and as usual, his front row was graced by several notable ladies.

Jessica Pare: The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a Jason Wu Resort 2014 lace overlay illusion dress and looked every bit the Wu posterchild in the sleek and chic ensemble.

Maria Sharapova: The tennis star paired her long-sleeved Jason Wu dress with black peep-toe booties and Joan Hornig earrings.

Alicia Keys: The singer also wore black, and her Jason Wu short-sleeve dot-yoke peplum top paired with a black pencil skirt was playful and flattering.

Olimpia Melinte In Maria Lucia Hohan – ‘Cannibal’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Olimpia Melinte In Maria Lucia Hohan - 'Cannibal' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Actress Olimpia Melinte walked the red carpet premiere of her film ‘Cannibal’ at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday night.

The Romanian actress is making her blog debut in a flowing Maria Lucia Hohan gown.

The teal color is beautiful on Olimpia’s fair skin, and the draped design is figure-flattering, though I’m not completely sold on the side cut-outs.

I love her geometric bracelet with the look, and only wish she would have added a pair of simple earrings.

A classic red lip and simple updo complete the look.

What do you think of this look? Are you excited by the star’s style?

Dakota Fanning In Valentino – ‘The Last Of Robin Hood’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Fanning In Valentino - 'The Last Of Robin Hood' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Fanning arrived at the Isabel Bader Theatre for the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of ‘The Last Robin Hood’ in Canada Friday night.

The young star wore a simple, long-sleeved Valentino Fall 2013 dress.

Despite its simplicity, I think this dress is a real winner. The unique neckline gives it plenty of visual appeal, while the short length is age appropriate.

While I prefer the silver shoes on the runway, Dakota’s nude pumps are fun without being distracting.

Another refreshing element is Dakota’s hair. While the star typically wears her hair down, it’s nice to see a slight change with half of it pulled back. The style is quite flattering to her face.

 

You can buy Dakota’s Valentino square neck dress from
Saks.com, Saks.com UK, Luisa via Roma US and Luisa via Roma UK.

Sarah Paulson In Georges Hobeika Couture – ’12 Years A Slave’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Sarah Paulson In Georges Hobeika Couture - '12 Years A Slave' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Sarah Paulson joined her co-star Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet at the Princess of Wales Theatre for the ’12 Years A Slave’ Toronto International Film Festival premiere in Canada on Friday evening.

The actress wore an exquisite Georges Hobeika Fall 2013 Couture gown, our first look at this collection on the red carpet.

Her rose-beige, strapless guipure lace-and-tulle tea-length dress was styled with a matching rose-beige clutch plus rose-gold metallic Oscar Tiye pumps and lavender drop earrings which adds some vitality to the look and prevent it from feeling too one-note.

Simple makeup and side parted sleek tresses provided the finishing touches to her look.

Nicole Kidman In Altuzarra – ‘The Railway Man’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Nicole Kidman In Altuzarra - 'The Railway Man' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Nicole Kidman arrived at the Roy Thomson Hall for the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of ‘The Railway Man’ in Canada on Friday evening.

While I was expecting jaw-dropping gown from Nicole, I’m not disappointed by this Altuzarra Resort 2014 offering.

The blazer features lace detailing while the cropped trousers draws focus to her pewter bow front Louis Vuitton pumps which add a playful touch to her look.

Her hair was styled into a low bun with her flawless makeup including a vibrant pink lip colour.

The only thing I would remove is the silver brooch.

Refreshing change of pace or did you expect more?

Lupita Nyong’o In Prada – ’12 Years A Slave’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Lupita Nyong'o In Prada - '12 Years A Slave' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o not only made her Hollywood debut, acting alongside Brad Pitt in their movie,’12 Years a Slave’, but she also makes her Red Carpet Fashion Awards debut.

And what a magical debut it is.

Lupita took to the red carpet for the Toronto International Film Festival premiere on Friday evening wearing a stunning Prada white silk jersey gown with a gold sequin smocked bodice.

This makes me eat my words when I said Miuccia Prada’s red carpet gowns don’t wow me, because this took my breath away.

The look was complemented with dazzling jewel encrusted Prada clutch and gold Prada leather sandals, with flawless smooth skin accentuated with a deep berry lip colour and diamond encrusted earrings completing the look.

Micaela Erlanger, her stylist, played it so very right. I know I will remember this gown at the end of year honors.

I have a feeling that narrowing down ten BDOTW worthy looks on Sunday is going to be very difficult.
