Selena Gomez In Atelier Versace – ‘Spring Breakers’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Selena Gomez glided down the red carpet for the ‘Spring Breakers’ Venice Film Festival, held at the Palazzo del Cinema on Wednesday evening in Italy.

The actress looked gorgeous wearing an Atelier Versace Fall 2011 gown.

My first thought was that this gown was too grown up for her, but on reflection I was looking at her as a Disney princess and not the beautiful young woman she is.

Her blush-toned strapless gown with leather bustier top and structured skirt – which gathered at the right side – enriched with intricate leather floral detailing throughout is breathtaking.

I’m sure you had this on your wish lists for the likes of Penelope Cruz, Olga Kurylenko, Eva Mendes or Bernice Marlohe, but Selena makes it work.

Lorraine Schwartz, a silver sparkling Judith Leiber clutch and nude satin Sergio Rossi ‘Song’ embellished platform sandals accessorized her look with a wavy side-swept hairstyle and a glossy nude lip colour perfecting her look.

I love her photocall look and premiere look in equal amounts, meaning that her hit-and-miss ratio is no longer equal.

Kate Hudson’s ‘Venetian Goddess’ Venice Film Festival Hair

Kate Hudson made a triumphant return to the red carpet last week at the Venice Film Festival. We spoke to her long-time hair stylist David Babaii about the behind-the-scenes preparation that went into her ‘Venetian Goddess’ inspired looks.

‘The Venice Film Festival was a lot of fun and it also marked my 10 year anniversary working with Kate. She’s my boho princess, she’s just so cool and sexy but also down to earth so the hair was all about keeping it effortless. For all her looks we went for something real women could do at home – something loose and approachable.’

‘First I washed Kate’s hair and blew it out using a few drops of IT&LY’s Pure Water Drops Serum for a bit of polish. Kate has really curly hair so I blowdry it to get it smooth and then I put the waves that I want back in using a curling iron with a two inch barrel..It’s more of a bend than a wave.’

‘Then I like to use a bit of IT&LY’s Pure Definition Hair Spray for that day old look. While I like a bit of chaos in the hair, I always want the roots to be perfect so my trick is to spray a bit more hairspray onto a toothbrush and smooth it along the roots.’

‘My favourite look for Kate was when we put it up – but not perfectly up. I put a lot of texture through it (try IT&LY’s Pure Volumizing and moisturizing texturizer) and then pinned it up in the back using only five pins. Again it was loose and kind of chaotic.’

The IT&LY’s Purity line is cruelty free and contains a unique Desert Blend containing vegetable extracts and protein from Agave, Yucca and Prickly Pears plants to hydrate protect against UV rays.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Oscar de la Renta – 2012 FIT Couture Council Luncheon

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the 2012 FIT Couture Council Luncheon at the Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday.

The actress, who looked her regular stylish self, opted for a red and white print Oscar de la Renta dress as an homage to the designer who was being honoured at the event.

SJP also wore a grey Martin Margiela jacket and mixed her prints with a pair of polka-dot black and grey Manolo Blahnik pumps.

Long wavy locks and Shourouk and Fred Leighton jewels completed her look.

Amy Adams In Giambattista Valli Couture – 9th Annual Style Awards

Amy Adams’ dress literally sparkled on the red carpet at the 9th annual Style Awards at the Lincoln Center in New York City last night.

The actress (who wore a gorgeous plum Giambattista Valli Spring 2012 Couture cocktail dress), however, looked a little less happy to be there.

Nevertheless, the dress fit her perfectly I particularly love the neckline and flared skirt and the simple VBH clutch and black pumps added a classic, yet understated, touch.

Slicked back hair and an apricot lip completed the look.

Olivia Munn In Giorgio Armani – GQ Men of the Year Awards 2012

Olivia Munn hit the red carpet for the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London earlier this week.

For the event, the American actress opted for a grey and lace Giorgio Armani gown that highlighted her impressive décolletage.

The revealing dress is beautiful and Olivia certainly has the figure for it, but she did go a little overboard on the rouge and I think she could do with giving her skin a break from the sun.

I do, however, love the De Beers jewellery and strong brow.

Lizzy Caplan In Halston Heritage – ‘Bachelorette’ New York Premiere

Lizzy Caplan looked fierce – in the truest sense of the word – at the premiere of ‘Bachelorette’ in New York City on Tuesday.

The up-and-coming actress squeezed herself into a Heritage Halston cobalt blue leather mini dress for the event. The result was impressive, though I would’ve preferred it if she’d slicked back her hair and opted for a more dramatic eye.

On an another note, it seems as though all the ‘Bachelorette’ girls are mad for Stella McCartney. Not only is Lizzy wearing a pair of pointed-toe pumps by the British designer, her co-stars Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher both wore Stella McCartney for the event.

A Rebecca Minkoff clutch provided the finishing touch.
