Nicole Kidman In L’Wren Scott – Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Nicole Kidman In L'Wren Scott - Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Nicole Kidman attended Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon, where she was honoured for working with the UN Women.

The Australian actress wore a L’Wren Scott Fall 2013 black long-sleeve dress with gold metallic trims including stitched contour seaming, buttons, cuffs and pointy collar.

I have a feeling some may think this ages Nicole or deem the dress to be too matronly on her. While you won’t see me voting this BDOTW, it does feel very event appropriate – business-like, but with an exquisitely chic edge.

Jimmy Choo ‘Rumba’ sandals continued the black-and-gold theme, with gold earrings and barely there makeup completing her look.

Charlize Theron In Stella McCartney – Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Charlize Theron In Stella McCartney - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Charlize Theron attended Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon, where she was honoured for starting the ‘Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project’.

The South African actress kept her look very simple wearing a cream Stella McCartney Resort 2014 python jacquard dress with an extra tied detail at the halter neckline to cover up an injury.

Her loose-fitted frock with draped sides was styled with Giuseppe Zanotti black pumps featuring a cream toe-cap, a black-and-white heart-print Stella McCartney ‘Falabella’ clutch and pearl earrings.

Charlize looks beautiful and polished as always; sporting side swept bangs in her sleek crop do, but I’m neither a fan of the clutch nor the shoes with this look.

The clutch is too big and the shoes too heavy.

Jessica Alba In Christian Dior – Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Jessica Alba In Christian Dior - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Jessica Alba attended Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon, where her company, The Honest Company sponsored a special lounge.

The actress looked gorgeous wearing a figure-hugging Christian Dior Fall 2013 anthracite and black wool metallic houndstooth strapless dress.

I love how this collection has managed to stay fresh with many actress selecting off-runway pieces.

Jessica styled her dress with silver metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Myth’ strappy sandals, a black patent leather Dior clutch and a selection of jewels from Jennifer Meyer, Joan Hornig, EF Collection, ELAHN Jewels and Reframed.

Side-parted wavy tresses, a glossy pout and metallic teal nails completed her look.

I wish her hair had a bit more life to it, as this is yet another great look from Jessica.

Kerry Washington In Vince Camuto - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

With her hit show ‘Scandal’ breaking season premiere rating records, Kerry Washington was in very good spirits while taking to the red carpet for Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon, where she was honoured for her work supporting the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.

The actress who has failed to wow us this week, manages to get back into my good graces wearing a Vince Camuto cocktail dress.

Her flared jacquard dress with gold gilded polka dots was styled with studded Christian Louboutin ‘Malabar Hill’ pumps, a tan Nancy Gonzalez clutch and a selection of jewels from Soffer Ari, Ocnarf Sairutsa, Joan Hornig and a Dana Rebecca Designs.

A half-up, half-down ‘do and neutral makeup completed her look. Hopefully this is the start of her comeback.

Elizabeth Banks In Dolce & Gabbana - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Elizabeth Banks made a welcome return to the red carpet for Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon where she was honoured for her work on behalf of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement.

We haven’t seen much of the actress on the red carpet this summer, so we can forgive her for jumping on the crop trend a little late.

She looked divine wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 red-hot two-piece which both featured lace embroideries.

Nude Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps, a ring and bracelet from Jennifer Meyer and gold Irene Neuwirth earrings accessorized her look.

Her blonde tresses were teased into a bouffant updo with a complementary red lip colour to match her ensemble provided the finishing touches.
