Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better…Naomie Harris or Priyanka Chopra?

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better Naomie Harris or Priyanka Chopra

Naomie Harris stunned when she took to the red carpet for the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom royal premiere wearing an Alexander McQueen strapless gown with a peplum detail enriched with gold embellishments.

The British actress had such an epic run promoting this movie, with this gown being very much the highlight.

With such an amazing gown worn on a world stage for such a historical occasion, I was very surprised to see Priyanka Chopra wearing the same gown to the 2014 Idea FilmFare Awards the following month.

Despite how gorgeous she looked in the gown, Naomie wins this for me. She looked the more radiant for me.

Celebrities Love…M2Malletier Bags

Celebrities Love M2Malletier Bags

Amid the crush of LVs, Chanels, Guccis and Ferragamos found on the arms of starlets everywhere is a bold newcomer on the scene. Modish mavens are clutching M2Malletier handbags, making them one of the hottest new accessories that have swiftly vaulted from near anonymity to celeb status.

Sleek meets street in these satchels, which are instantly recognizable for their architectural quality and geometric lines, not to mention the true hallmark of the label—its distinctive hardware. The shiny gold, silver or onyx bar handles on each design were originally inspired by medieval tools and armor.

The duo behind the wonder bags, Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez, envisioned a brand that preserved their Colombian roots, while infusing a sense of sophistication and spontaneity in the trend-forward designs.

With their classic yet avant-garde angles, it’s no wonder celebrities are swooping up multiple M2Malletiers, including the popular ‘La Fleur Du Mal’ model along with the ‘Fabricca,’ ‘Amor Fati’ and ‘La Collectioneuse.’ Luxe materials and progressive colours ranging from rich coral to royal purple and light avocado, along with timeless shades of black, camel, cream and dove-grey, also make a M2Malletier a must-have.

Emma Watson, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendes, Cate Blanchett, Solange Knowles, Kate Hudson and Taylor Swift are just a few of the bold names carrying the neat little purse that effortlessly transitions from edgy ensembles to girly, flirty looks and more formal entrances.

Kerry Bishé In Fitriani & Georges Hobeika – ‘Halt & Catch Fire’ Photocall & MIPTV Opening Party

Kerry Bishé In Fitriani & Georges Hobeika - 'Halt & Catch Fire' Photocall & MIPTV Opening Party

Kerry Bishé attended the ‘Halt & Catch Fire’ photo call and MIPTV opening party on Monday (April 7) in Cannes, France, where the New Zealand actress debuted two different looks.

‘Halt & Catch Fire’ Photocall: Posing at the Hotel Majestic Jetty, she wore a Fitriani midnight-navy sheath dress, swirled in a futuristic, artsy print. She punched up the kaleidoscope impact even further with the addition of bold chartreuse Kurt Geiger pumps, finishing the ensemble with a few Swarovski rings, a pretty pink lip and loose curls.

MIPTV 2014 Opening Party: Donning a far more romantic and formal look, she changed into a Georges Hobeika lavender confection for the opening event at the Hotel Martinez. The quietly graceful gown had just the right amount of edge with its sheer bodice of layered strips of fabric and a thin magenta belt to accent the flowing silhouette. She accessorized with Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, sparkling Carolee earrings and a beige Oroton clutch, which I found rather outsized and distracting for this softer statement.

Adèle Exarchopoulos In Louis Vuitton - Romy Schneider and Patrick Dewaere Awards

Adèle Exarchopoulos attended the Romy Schneider and Patrick Dewaere Awards held at Hotel Scribe on Monday (April 7) in Paris, France.

Always one to pledge her alliance to French brands, the French actress wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 ensemble featuring a leather bustier and printed floral skirt.

I love the juxtaposition of the edgy leather with the sweet floral print. This pretty much sums up Adèle’s style.

Her accessories included LV black leather booties, a leather knotted belt and a single dangling LV earring, which is what the models sported on the runway.

Li Bingbing In Zuhair Murad – Jacky Chen’s Charity Birthday Party

Li Bingbing In Zuhair Murad - Jacky Chen's Charity Birthday Party

Li Bingbing attended Jacky Chan’s charity birthday party on Monday (April 7) in Beijing, China.

The Chinese actress, who is known for her demure red carpet looks, tried something different on this occasion wearing a Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2014 teal beaded creation featuring long crochet sleeves and black shoulder pads.

Zuhair Murad designs consistently make an impact, and it doesn’t get any more impactful than this floor-length gown.

I love the mesh details, which emit an air of seductive confidence; again, something we don’t usually see from Bingbing.

Many of you weren’t too fond of Shakira’s Zuhair Murad ACM Awards gown, calling it tacky.

Would you put Bingbing’s gown in the same category?

Mindy Kaling Loves…Bright Colours

Mindy Kaling Loves Bright Colours

Mindy Kaling is the kind of girl we all want to be BFFs with; I do personally because of her humour, charm and quick wit, but also because she shares my love for colour.

While promoting the new season of ‘The Mindy Project’ she made quite a splash colour-wise, opting for preppy, playful pieces in standout hues.

Smart and sexy at the SXSW Film and Music Festival, who could miss her wearing this bold-hued Trina Turk top-and-trouser set, which she styled with mauve heels and a gorgeous statement necklace?

She sparkled while on her way to Jimmy Kimmel wearing a Moods of Norway emerald-green tank top paired with lemon-hued pants, adding blue sandals and Jennifer Meyer jewels for a touch more bling.

While purple might be the colour we crave when fall comes around, the light shade and polka dots give this SiriusXM look a bright and breezy feel. The actress worked the colour in several shades from head-to-toe, including a magenta lip.

Which look do you favour? I have to go with the Kimmel look.

I just love the way the green and yellow complement each other.
