October 15, 2019 Runway To Red Carpet

2019 Elle Women In Hollywood: The All Black Edition

2019 Elle Women In Hollywood: The All Black Edition

It was a jammed pack red carpet for the 2019 Elle Women In Hollywood on Monday (October 14) in LA, so I’ve split the coverage into three parts.

Part one is those who wore black.  Part two will be for those who wore tuxedos, and part three is all about colour.

Scarlett Johansson:  As you know I’m a fan of Scarlett’s sultry side which didn’t really come out to play in this Tom Ford velvet and crepe dress, but I love how the look is amped up with that dynamic eye makeup.

Natalie Portman: After giving us a splash of colour this weekend, it was back to black and Dior for Natalie.  Is there a touch of familiarity when it comes to this Dior Haute Couture Fall 2019 bustier lace black dress?  Yes, but as always she looks pretty and elegant.  So if it ain’t broke….

Margot Robbie:  Ralph Lauren dominated this red carpet as one of the hosts of this event, which meant they outfitted several of the attendees, including Margot Robbie.   The actress, who failed to impress at the ‘Bombshell’ LA screening, fared much better in this Ralph Lauren Collection Fall 2019 two-piece look.  Some might feel that the cummerbund sits a little too high, but overall this was a simple, yet glamorous moment for Margot.

Nicole Kidman: Also in Ralph Lauren Collection Fall 2019, this tuxedo dress presents a sleek impression, even if I wanted just a little bit more from the Australian actress. Yvan Tufenkjian choker, earrings, rings and Kallati and Le Vian rings, plus Manolo Blahnik pumps completed her look.

Gwyneth Paltrow: After a trio of loose-fitted pieces, the actress returned to a more slinky silhouette in this Bottega Veneta Spring 2020 dress styled with Nikos Koulis jewels and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Mindy Kaling:   I would’ve expected to be writing about Mindy in the colour post, but I can’t complain when she looks this good.  I love how the embellished sleeves elevates this Oscar de la Renta dress, and how that detail was complemented with Jimmy Choo shoes and David Yurman jewels.

Hunter Schafer: In terms of texture and detail, Hunter’s Loewe Spring 2020 fringed dress was very intriguing, even if I’m on the fence as to whether she pulled it off.

Sydney Sweeney:  Also part of the Ralph Lauren Collection Fall 2019 crew, the young actress presented a more playful offering in this mini velvet dress accented with a feathers for good measure.

Adria Arjona: The beautiful actress rocked a Ralph Lauren Collection jumpsuit from the Fall 2019 collection. I love the clean styling of this look.

Reese Witherspoon: This Miu Miu dress couldn’t have been a more Reese Witherspoon dress if it tried.

    I love Adria but that’s it. I don’t get Margot’s look at all and I’m disappointed by how boring Nicole’s look is.

    All these looks prove that you can never (well, almost never, khm) go wrong with an all black loo

    Scarlett’s makeup washes her out – even with the bright eyes. I like Margot and Natalie and the rest are just alright

    Natalie Portman sucked the life out of that stunning Dior. It needed the sleeves and someone tall.

    Gwyneth didn’t try at all. Boring.

    Mindy really knows what works for her and she sticks to it.

    Natalie and Mindy are best of the bunch here. I still don’t understand the red eye make-up….

  6. Dominos October 15, 2019 at 3:30 pm #

    This is one of her strongest looks ever and finally her makeup is up to par and complementing the look.

  7. Guest October 15, 2019 at 2:00 pm #

    Some lovely looks here from Nicole, Mindy, Scarlett, and Margot. But the best in this bunch is certainly Natalie. The rest are actually quite boring and others are just awful.

  8. Catarina_M October 15, 2019 at 1:00 pm #

    Natalie and Mindy. Scarlett’s makeup is awful.

  9. Guest October 15, 2019 at 12:21 pm #

    Natalie (wish she’d worn the runway version), Margot and Nicole. The rest are boring.

  10. Guest October 15, 2019 at 11:30 am #

    I wish Natalie had worn the runway version as it looks more interesting.
    Margot would sold this to me if she’d chosen a pulled back hairstyle.

    • Guest October 15, 2019 at 12:17 pm #

      Me too. The runway version is stunning. I agree about Margo too.

    I love Natalie Portman’s look head to toe.

  12. P&P October 15, 2019 at 10:54 am #

    I like Nicole’s look and that’s it.

  13. sueno October 15, 2019 at 10:31 am #

    Natalie and Nicole look fine, Sydney’s dress looks much better on the runway and Scarlett looks like she has conjunctivitis.

    I like that you separated it into 3 sections.

    this black edition…yawn. I have a hard time getting interested. Always….not your list! I just find black (or white/tan/beige/blah) not my style. Unless extremely well executed…..which some do manage.
    but not this bunch.
    im bored by each one….I loathe to say Natalie looks best in her standard look. But she doesn’t make it very exciting.

  15. Guest October 15, 2019 at 10:21 am #

    Natalie, Nicole and Mindy are my favourites.
