Red Carpet Trend: Slick Suits, Slicker Hair

In the 1920’s mens hair was super simple. Hair was slicked back with gel for a formal look that was thought to be both masculine and also elegant.

Usually when we see a celeb work a suit on the red carpet, they opt for feminine tresses, but when supermodel Karolina Kurkova wore a Roberto Cavalli suit last week with slicked-back locks she revitalized the menswear trend, taking it to a whole new level.

Young Emma Roberts appeared to have been inspired by this look when she donned this Nanette Lepore suit, as was Julianne Hough.

The actress/dancer also slicked back her short blonde tresses when she wore this black Chloe suit earlier this week.

Do you prefer this edgier approach to menswear-inspired dressing, or do you prefer a softer, more feminine approach?

Ashley Greene In Erdem – ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ South Africa Photocall

Ashley Greene debuted her rich red hairdo on the red carpet this afternoon in South Africa for the photocall of her latest movie ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ held at the African Pride Hotel in Johannesburg yesterday.

The actress wore an Erdem dress.

Her navy dress with a nude-and-blue lace bodice and a flared skirt is a typically event-appropriate look from the actress.

Black Brian Atwood pumps, which I’m sure we will see a lot of over the course of this ‘Twilight’ tour, and pink glossy lips completed her look.

Do you love Ashley’s new red ‘do?

Renee Zellweger In Carolina Herrera – 29th Annual Fashion Group International Night Of Stars

Carolina Herrera was honoured at the Night of Stars gala, held yesterday evening at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

She was presented with the award by her number-one celebrity client, Renee Zellweger, who has been M.I.A. on the red carpet for a while.

Both ladies were of course decked out in Carolina Herrera.

Renee looked beautiful wearing a slate-grey off-the-shoulder dress with a criss-cross pleated bodice and a pencil skirt.

Christian Louboutin sparkling ‘Pigalle’ pumps and an embroidered clutch completed the look.

For me it’s all about Carolina Herrera; she optimizes effortless chic in her own Fall 2012 creation.

She teamed a deep navy, black and indigo embroidered grosgrain top with a flared black skirt, accessorizing with a navy cuff and sapphire-and-diamond earrings.
