2013 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

2013 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

The 2013 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California, where once again the majority of the celebs were decked out in Max Mara or Sportmax.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young actress was feeling very blue, wearing a Sportmax blue suede-and-leather sleeveless dress featuring a pleated skirt, which is a 100% upgrade from yesterday’s look. On this occasion, she styled her look with a blue Max Mara ‘Hollywood II’ clutch and Jimmy Choo ‘Kalan’ ankle-strap peep-toes. Pops of pink via her nails, kohl-rimmed eyes, and flawless makeup completed her look. Which look do you prefer: the grey from yesterday or today’s vivid blue?

Kiernan Shipka: Hailee’s fellow teen actress, who often finds herself on best-dressed lists, wore a Max Mara black above-the-knee dress featuring perforated details etched into pretty stars. Keeping her makeup very minimal and opting for wavy tresses, the ‘Mad Men’ actress styled her look with a Christian Louboutin ‘Sweet Charity’ bag with a gold bow accent and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigaresille’ pumps.

Stana Katic: The ‘Castle’ actress has a pair of the best pins in Hollywood; however, she loves to wear pants, much like her onscreen character. Like at the Billboard Awards, Stana opted for a jumpsuit. The scarlet one-shoulder Max Mara jumpsuit was styled with a Jennifer Behr headband placed on top of her updo. I can’t say I’m crazy about the headband; I guess she was inspired by all the tiaras we saw this weekend at the royal wedding. Kohl-rimmed eyes, nude glossy lips and Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ sandals completed her look. Are you digging the headband?

2012 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

The 2012 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards took place at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening.

Cobie Smulders: As one of my favourite breakout stars of 2012, I was happy to see Cobie back on the red carpet for this event. The actress wore a beautiful blush Max Mara dress with ruffle shoulders and a contrast waistband. The look was perfected with a champagne cut-crystal minaudiere, Swarovski jewels, pink glossy lips, Jimmy Choo ‘Trina’ sandals and a quiffed updo.

Viola Davis: Despite looking at least 20 years younger sporting her natural hair towards the end of awards season, Viola showcased a different do at this event. She wore a black strapless Max Mara dress with a satin side-bow detail. I wish she’d opted for something more summery like Cobie. A rich red lip colour, a studded clutch and black strappy Jimmy Choo ‘New Ontario’ sandals completed the look.

Christina Applegate: We had a shot of colour at this event courtesy of Christina. She stood out wearing a hot red Max Mara sleeveless dress with peplum detail. I wish her accessories, which included a Daniel Swarovski black iridescent snakeskin Fresh clutch with silver crystal stripe and black peep-toes, were as enticing as her dress. A braided updo and a red lip colour to match her dress provided the finishing touches.

Chloe Moretz In MaxMara – 2012 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

Chloe Moretz attended the 2012 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards in Beverly Hills, California, on Tuesday evening.

The young actress, who was honoured at the awards, wore a black satin MaxMara dress.

Ruffled sleeves and an off-the-shoulder neckline add a girly touch to the satin LBD.

Edgy lace-up gladiator heels accessorize the look, providing a stark contrast to the prim dress and matching black headband.

Now that the pink streaks in Chloe’s hair have faded, this look is completely colour-free, right down to her grey manicure.

Softly tousled hair and glowy makeup complete the look.

Elle Fanning In Marc Jacobs – 2011 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

Young Elle Fanning looked absolutely adorable at the 2011 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards, which was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, California yesterday.

I was just flicking through some of the Resort collections on Style.com yesterday, and I had initially picked this for Kristen Bell, but of course it was made for someone as cute as Elle.

The baby blue tulle dress with white floral appliqués appears to be longer on Elle plus she opted out of wearing the silver waistband.

Elle’s red carpet shoes haven’t been that impressive thus far, but on this occasion I love her Chanel coral peep-toes which provide a fruity contrast to her blue dress.

The dress does all the talking as Elle didn’t add any make-up or jewels to her look.

I think this definitely deserves a spot on the BDOTW list.

What do you think?

2010 Women In Film Crystal Lucy Awards – Emily Blunt In Elie Saab

Emily Blunt also attended the 2010 Women In Film Crystal Lucy Awards in LA last night.

The Brit actress wore dress by my favourite designer Elie Saab.

Her Elie Saab Fall 2010 knee length draped chiffon and lace dress looks like it has been slightly modified to be less revealing around the bust area.

I just love the lace and ruffled detail on the side of this dress.

Emily’s pulled back hair is accented with a silver hair accessory, whilst she carried a blush Lauren Merkin ‘Allie’ envelope clutch which complemented her Sergio Rossi heels.

This looks is simple, sexy and elegant all at the same time and I absolutely love it.

2010 Women In Film Crystal Lucy Awards – Zoe Saldana In MaxMara

Zoe Saldana looked stunning – as we’ve come to expect – at the 2010 Women In Film Crystal Lucy Awards which was held in LA last night.

The “Avatar” star was named “Face of the Future” by MaxMara, and what a pretty face it is.

I adore her MaxMara white dress with ruffled neckline. It looks even sassier from the back.

Her haltered dress was worn with a stunning pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Butterfly’ sandals which we saw on Emma Watson recently, plus a Ferragamo clutch.

This for me is the perfect summer red carpet look. I have no hesitation in considering her for BDOTW.

Women In Film’s 2009 Crystal And Lucy Awards

Excuse me whilst I pick my chin off the floor.

I’ve waited my whole lifetime for Jennifer Aniston to wow me, and she does wearing this Prada Spring 2009 silver metallic crushed dress.

What I love about this look the most is the confidence she exudes. It’s oozing from every pore and for me that’s more captivating than the colour and the cut.

Jen could have gone for the safer runway dress as it’s in her favourite colour – Black, but she not only opted for the silver dress, but a shorten silver dress plus she didn’t press it like Nicole Kidman did.

This may not sit well with Jennifer Aniston’s loyal fans as this is such a huge departure from her usual style, but I love it.

Oh and I hate to be crude, but where did those twins sprout from?

This is the first time in a long time that Amber Valletta has proved her supermodel status.

She hasn’t impressed me much on her last few outings, but she works it out in this maroon sequined Proenza Schouler 2009 Pre-Fall dress.

I love the colour the cut-outs in the shoulders, and the contrast exposed zipper at the back.

She completed her look with her hair tied back with sweeping bangs, whilst wearing black patent Brian Atwood “Maniac” pumps and carrying a feathered Raven Kauffman Couture clutch.

Like Jennifer Aniston, I would have bet on Jodie Foster picking the black runway version of this Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 dress. But instead she wore a grey satin, shadow-print version with complementary strappy sandals and clutch.

Her dress is exquisite with the origami folds on the bodice, and the daring low cut.

I love that these women are stepping out of their comfort-zones at this event.

Chelsea Handler wore a two-tone Lanvin Spring 2009 dress, with satin champagne strappy heels.

We’re not used to seeing Chelsea this polished and spectacular, but she pulls this look off with great aplomb.

I hope she keeps up this sophisticated style of dressing, as I could really warm to her.

Mary McCormack tried to bring this grey strapless Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2008 dress up-to-date with a cage belt and YSL Trib Two’s.

It’s a nice look, but we’ve seen this dress so many, many, many times before.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a Reem Acra knee-length dress covered in gold sequined leaf details and a contrasting waist band.

Her dress which she wears with black open-toes heels is nice enough, but it feels a bit too old for her.

Jenny McCartney looked out-friggin-standing wearing this crisp white pant suit.

Even though she has been dressing so sophisticatedly for a while now, I’m still always surprised at her fabulous looks.

Hair, make-up earrings, clutch, everything is perfect. My only bug-bear are her extremely long pants. I hate the thought of them picking up dirty as they drag on the floor.

Of all these looks Dania Ramirez’ is the one I would definitely purchase to go shopping at the mall on a sunny day. I love this summery look with the white tube top, floral tulip skirt and purple accessories, but it’s feels too casual for the red carpet.

Terri Seymour showed off that enivalbe figure wearing a coral RM by Roland Mouret Fluro dress with pleated neckline knee-length dress, paired with black patent pumps.

Selena Gomez wore a simple black H&M tank dress, with equally simple black pumps.

Elizabeth Banks set the bar really high for her red carpet looks during Cannes Film Festival, but I’m not really enjoying this look on her at all.

Her sparkling MaxMara dress is nice enough, but I have never been a fan of a sheer yoke. Reminds me too much of ice-skaters.

The actress completed her look with satin black pumps and a matching clutch.

Keke Palmer wore a printed maxi dress, which she accessorized with peacock earrings.

I really don’t like this dress as too much going on with the clashing prints plus those earrings are just hideous and so unnecessary.

Lynn Collins’ invite must have said fancy dress.

Christina Hendricks has such a stunning figure, and she embraces colour in many of her looks.

With that said I can’t help but be really disappointed with her all black, all boring look at this event, when so many women really step it up a notch.
