WHO: Michelle Williams
WHERE & WHEN: “Oz: The Great and Powerful” London premiere on February 28, 2013.
WEARING: Burberry Prorsum dress, Jimmy Choo shoes & Solange Azagury-Partridge jewelry.

MY VERDICT: Michelle has been killing it on the press tour for “Oz: The Great and Powerful”!  Every event brings yet another fabulous outfit, and the London premiere wasn’t any different.  The 32-year-old actress worked her asymmetric pixie haircut with a feathered blue Burberry Prorsum cocktail dress this time around.  I love the balance between her edgy hairstyle partnered with the funky embroidery and vibrant dimensional color of the Spring 2013 knee-length dress. | continue reading..

WHO: Mila Kunis
WHERE & WHEN: “Oz: The Great and Powerful” London premiere on February 28, 2013.
WEARING: Alexander McQueen dress, Christian Louboutin shoes & Gemfields jewelry.

MY VERDICT: I had been hoping to see Mila save an emerald green gown for the major London premiere of “Oz: The Great and Powerful”—but, she turned to a smoky grey.  The 29-year-old actress posed on the green turf rug in a tiered fishnet strapless gown by Alexander McQueen, but thankfully, she accessorized with gorgeous emerald gems on her ears and finger that were created by Alexandra Mor and Dominic Jones, exclusively for Gemfields.

The dress is sweet and it fit Mila well, but it was kind of anticlimactic when you take into account her last two premiere dresses.  | continue reading..

WHO: Rachel Weisz
WHERE & WHEN: “Oz: The Great and Powerful” London premiere on February 28, 2013.
WEARING: Michael Kors dress, Tabitha Simmons shoes & a Sophia Webster clutch.

MY VERDICT: Rachel took the yellow brick road all the way to the London premiere of “Oz: The Great and Powerful”, and she glittered in a pretty nude embroidered lace Michael Kors gown. The strapless floor-length gown comes from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection and features ruched detail at the side, a sweetheart bodice, and a leather belted waist.

I like the dress a lot, but I felt it a bit too pale for Rachel.  | continue reading..

WEARING: Mila- Atelier Verace dress, Christian Louboutin shoes & Katerina Maxine ring.; Michelle- Jason Wu dress, Christian Louboutin shoes; Roger Vivier clutch & Verdura jewelry.

MY VERDICT: After an early day of press, Michelle and Mila reunited with James on the emerald green carpet for the Russian premiere of “Oz: The Great and Powerful” while donned in two beautiful floor-length gowns.  Michelle opted for some Emerald City sparkle and wore a Jason Wu belted black silk short sleeve gown—from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection, that features an off-over print of glittering gold wavy stripes varying in widths from the neck to the hem.  I love the subtle mix of glamour and edge; it was well balanced with Michelle’s razor-cut pixie and her metallic accented Verdura cuff bracelet. | continue reading..

WHERE & WHEN: “Oz: The Great and Powerful” Moscow photocall on February 27, 2013.
WEARING: Mila- Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and jewelry from Melinda Maria & Dana Rebecca Designs. ; Michelle- Victoria Beckham dress & Charlotte Olympia shoes.

MY VERDICT: While Rachel Weisz did some promo elsewhere, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams joined a very blonde James Franco at the photocall and press conference in Moscow, Russia to celebrate their new Disney movie “Oz: The Great and Powerful” in very cool coordinating greyscale ensembles.  Well, maybe not James’ boots.

Mila flaunted her figure, while staying warm, in a cozy grey jersey Givenchy dress–from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection, which featured all-over ruching and cascading ruffles down the center of the dress. I really like how this dress fit her, but I wish she had worn her hair partially up to show off a bit more of the flared neckline.  Mila accessorized with the gold/white diamond “Galaxy Wrap” ring and gold “Nailhead Heart” ring from Melinda Maria along with a Dana Rebecca “Sylvie Rose” necklace, before | continue reading..

Nicholas Hoult in Tom Ford | “Jack The Giant Slayer” Hollywood Premiere

WHO: Nicholas Hoult
WHERE & WHEN: “Jack The Giant Slayer” Hollywood premiere on February 26, 2013.
WEARING: Tom Ford

MY VERDICT: Nicholas has been a busy boy lately! After coming off a two month-long press tour for “Warm Bodies” and a brief stop at the BAFTA Awards recently. the handsome English actor was already back to work promoting the adventure flick “Jack The Giant Slayer”.  Nicholas joined his lovely costar Eleanor Tomlinson on the emerald carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the movie wearing a plaid midnight grey Tom Ford suit.  It’s no secret that Nick wears a suit well–especially a cut by Mr. Ford, but I believe my favorite look for him is the three-piece.  He’s so polished.  Shiny leather dress shoes helped complete his look.

Man, his eyes are piercing.

WHO: Eleanor Tomlinson
WHERE & WHEN: “Jack The Giant Slayer” Hollywood premiere on February 26, 2013.
WEARING: Azzaro

MY VERDICT: Eleanor lit up the Hollywood night when she arrived on the emerald green carpet for the premiere of “Jack The Giant Slayer” at the TCL Chinese Theatre wearing a shimmering gold gown.  The ginger-haired English actress selected the “Nebuleuse” gown by Azzaro, a floor-length silk-crepe and organza design that is entirely embroidered with pearls, sequins and tube pailettes.  I love the flame-like pattern that shoots from the straps, waist, and hem as it added a cool dimension to an otherwise elegant gown.  Eleanor completed her look with a swept up voluminous ‘do and a gold clutch.

Where was some of this ‘glamour dedication’ at the Oscars this year?  A few could take notes from Eleanor.

Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier | 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

WHO: Ginnifer Goodwin
WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on February 24, 2013.
WEARING: Monique Lhuillier dress, Cartier jewelry

MY VERDICT:  Ginnifer lit up the Vanity Fair Oscar celebration in her oceanic cocktail dress by Monique Lhuillier.  The “Once Upon a Time” actress shimmered her way into the party wearing the Spring 2013 racer structured knee-length design, which is covered in pearlized shell embroidery and features hidden pockets.  The bright and bold blue was electrifying against Ginny’s porcelain complexion and dark hair.

As a long-time fan of the sparkling number, I have to say that I’m pleased with how it was worn.  But, truth be told, I can’t imagine anyone making a wrong decision with this frock.  | continue reading..

Solange Knowles in Emilio Pucci | 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

WHO: Solange Knowles
WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on February 24, 2013.
WEARING: Emilio Pucci

MY VERDICT: Solange went heavy on the yellow when she brightened up the Vanity Fair Oscar bash in a full-sequined gown by Emilio Pucci. The floor-length frock featured a scoop-halter neckline with a lace mesh yoke to give it some dimension, and to break it up from the rest of the design. With a wild mane of curls and gold accessories to accent, Solange topped her look off with a bright red pout.  I’m not sure if I would like this on many people, but Miss Knowles has a way of making things work while really expressing herself.  I liked the bold approach here, even thought it wasn’t a favorite of mine throughout the night.

WHO: Diane Kruger
WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on February 24, 2013.
WEARING: Giambattista Valli dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, Roger Vivier clutch, Jaeger-LeCoultre watch & Neil Lanejewelry.

MY VERDICT: Diane joined her actor boyfriend Joshua Jackson at the Vanity Fair Oscar after party where the duo donned matching black and white outfits. Josh stuck by a classic Berluti tuxedo while the “Host” star rocked an angled patterned sequin-embroidered cocktail dress from the Spring 2013 Haute Couture collection by Giambattista Valli.  The long sleeve design gave the appearance of an attached cape, but from the side, it looks as though a large gust of wind just hit the actress. | continue reading..
