Jordin Sparks In Bebe – 12th Annual US Open Night Ceremony

Jordin Sparks sang the national anthem at the 12th Annual US Open Night Ceremony at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on Monday in New York City.

The ‘Sparkle’ actress showed off her curves wearing a spring-white Bebe knitted eyelet striped body-con dress with ¾-length sleeves.

Her figure-hugging dress was paired with a silver bracelet, studded earrings and nude Jimmy Choo ‘Crown’ peep-toe platform pumps.

A wavy ponytail and pretty makeup finalized her look.

Laetitia Casta In Valentino – 69th Venice Film Festival

The 69th Venice Film Festival hasn’t even officially started, yet this is our third Valentino look to grace the festivities.

Laetitia Casta, who will be on the jury for the festival, was spotted arriving at her hotel wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

Her elegant Valentino look has embroidered roses down the front of her romantic, folk-inspired long-sleeve frock with pleated shoulders.

Opting to select white Gianvito Rossi pumps as styled on the runway, the French beauty completed her look with stylish oversized shades.

Violante Placido In Dolce & Gabbana – 69th Venice Film Festival

Violante Placido was also seen arriving in Venice, Italy, ahead of the 69th Venice Film Festival yesterday afternoon.

The Italian actress wore a vibrant floral-printed Dolce & Gabbana skirt which she teamed with a classic white button-down blouse which was buttoned down a bit too far.

A nude shoulder bag, a gold timepiece and blue Sergio Rossi PVC T-strap open-toe sandals accessorized her look.

The finishing touches to her look included wavy locks and a pink lip colour.

You may remember that Violante wore Alberta Ferretti almost exclusively to this festival not once, but on two occasions.

I’m looking forward to seeing what she brings to the red carpet this time around.

You can buy a longer version of Violante’s Dolce & Gabbana skirt from and US.

Kasia Smutniak In Valentino – Venice Film Festival Dinner

The 69th Venice Film Festival hasn’t even started yet and I am already developing a style crush on Kasia Smutniak.

The host of the opening and closing ceremony gives us her third look in two days, by attending a pre-festival dinner party in Venice this evening.

She looked very graceful wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 gown.

Once again she opts for minimal styling wearing her sleeveless black embroidered floor-length gown.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the length of her gown which is ankle-length on the model.

Keeping the same chic chignon from the photocall earlier in the day, she added a darker lip colour for this occasion.

Kasia’s photocall look is still my favourite.

Which do you favour?

The Jil Sander dress, the Valentino photocall dress or this evening’s Valentino gown?
