Sandra Bullock In AllSaints – 2011 amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles

Sandra Bullock attended the 2011 amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles yesterday evening at the Chateau Marmont.

We don’t often see her on the red carpet, and when we do she’s usually wearing head-to-toe black, so I’m happy to see her in this AllSaints ‘Eagle’ dress.

Her gold embellished mini dress was teamed with a black Stella McCartney tuxedo jacket.

Irit designs earrings; a Pomellato bracelet and ring provided even more bling.

A Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch, a loose updo, metallic smoky eyes and frosty pink lips completed her look.

From the ankles up I love this look as it’s so different for Sandra.

I would’ve preferred black strappy sandals, but she opted for silver Jimmy Choo ‘Eros’ pumps.

Salma Hayek In Stella McCartney – Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

Salma Hayek dropped by the NBC studios in New York City to promote her new movie ‘Puss In Boots’ on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’.

The actress called first dibs on a look from the Stella McCartney Spring 2012 collection, like she did with Bottega Veneta and Alexander McQueen who are also part of the Gucci Group.

I wonder if she’s going to debut the whole set which would include Gucci, YSL and Balenciaga.

Her navy and blue tank Stella McCartney dress with a swirl velvet appliqué was teamed with a black blazer with satin lapels.

An silver choker, black tights, a silver cuff, and YSL Tribtoo pumps completed her look.

The surprising thing about this look is the addition of the blazer, considering how much she was showing off in her Antonio Berardi dress on ‘Letterman’ earlier this week.

Abigail Breslin In Nanette Lepore – ‘Janie Jones’ New York Premiere

Abigail Breslin was in New York City last night for the premiere of her latest movie, ‘Janie Jones’.

She donned a blinding neon-yellow Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 look fresh off the runway.

Well, actually looking at the runway, the blazer and pleated skirt don’t appear to be neon-yellow – more like lemon – but the photographer’s flash has made it appear harsher on the red carpet.

It was always going to be hard to accessorize this look and find the right lip colour, and that has proven to be the case.

The berry lip colour and pumps say fall, whilst the ensemble says spring. The mixed messages are just darn confusing.

Whilst it was a very cute look on the runway, it doesn’t work for me on the red carpet.

A David Yurman pearl chain necklace completed her look.

Beauty Trend Spotting: Lacquered Locks

Between the messy side braid, the disheveled top knot, and tousled bedhead tresses, it’s truly hard to fathom why women still have bad hair days, and have yet to master the done-undone look.

Another chic and easy hairstyle to fallback on? The shiny slick back.

Seen all over the Fall 2011 runways (Ralph Lauren, Giambattista Valli, Mary Katrantzou, Salvatore Ferragamo, The Row), stars like Camilla Belle and Keira Knightley are starting to shellac their strands to their scalps as well. Such a laissez-faire, yet entirely appropriate red carpet look.

Get The Look in Three Swift Steps:
-Starting with damp hair, insert a deep side part and brush hair back into a low position.
-Maintain your wet look for the entire day by liberally coating strands with Redken Hardwear 16 Super Strong Sculpting Gel (available at Redken salons for $13).
-Tautly secure at the nape of your neck.

Finish your pared-down but perfect look with bold earrings, a bit of lipstick and blush, topped off with a few coats of mascara.

Total prep time—five minutes flat. —India-Jewel Jackson

Milla Jovovich In Prada – Campari 2012 Calendar Unveiling

Milla Jovovich attended both the press conference and the party for the launch for the 2012 Campari Calendar unveiling in Milan, Italy yesterday.

The actress wore two Prada looks.

For the press conference she wore a flirty red chiffon printed blouse and a blue dotted skirt.

She accessorized with fine jewelry, black satin Prada peep-toes and a Prada ‘Visone’ crocodile bag.

Milla sported sleek locks on this occasion, and that rouge lip colour which matches her shirt is to die for.

I just love her attitude. She’s oozing confidence from her every pore.

For the party, Milla changed into a Prada red chiffon dress which was designed especially for the occasion.

I’m not sure I like the lace embroidered red roses on the bodice which are embellished with ruby cabochons.

Nor do I like the pale pink satin Prada shoes with this gown.

A black crystal embellished Prada clutch, oversized earrings and a chic updo completed her look.

I much prefer the photocall look.

Which do you prefer?

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Dries Van Noten – ‘Hysteria’ Rome Film Festival Photocall

Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the ‘Hysteria’ Rome Film Festival photocall this afternoon.

The actress gives us our first red carpet look at the Dries van Noten Spring 2012 collection.

This isn’t a surprise as the actress is a huge fan of the brand and is often the one to snag the first look.

Her loose-fitted waterprint dress with one draped sleeve excited me more on the model as I prefer the strappy sandals, but this is a perfect laidback look for a photocall.

Brown wooden wedges, a simple bun, rosy cheeks and red lips completed her look.

I’m very excited to see what Maggie wears to the premiere later this evening.

I adore Rupert Everett’s Moncler reindeer cardigan, as it would make the perfect Christmas gift for my younger brother.

His cardigan is available from Matches Fashion.
