WHERE & WHEN: ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration on October 21, 2013.
WEARING: Thakoon dress, Saint Laurent shoes, Jimmy Choo clutch & David Yurman jewelry.
MY VERDICT: Ashley has been in NYC celebrating Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and hit the black carpet for the annual Elle Fashion | Next runway show over the weekend. The “Revenge” actress played with vibrant colors and stuck by her fellow Brit when she opted for a Roksanda Ilincic silk-satin light blue draped swing dress, which comes from the designer’s Resort 2014 line.
The sleeveless design features a angled hem and a powder cobalt collar. I like the pretty tones, but I’m not a fan of the shape as it hides to body too severely. | continue reading..
MY VERDICT: Ashley took the summer jumpsuit trend to the disco level when she attended InStyle’s annual bash at Hollywood’s Mondrian Hotel. The “Revenge” actress wore a bright yellow Diane von Furstenberg halter onesie with a plunging neckline, loose trousers, and ruffled peplum detail.
This was originally partnered with a silver metallic belt during the Spring/Summer 2013 fashion show, | continue reading..
MY VERDICT: It’s nice to see that the midriff trend is still sticking around, I wasn’t quite ready to be done with it. Ashley rocked the silver-grey carpet in a strikingly cool x-ray abstract silk crop top and skirt by J. Mendel that’s made up of vibrant shades of purple and fuchsia. This funky Spring 2013 ensemble was the perfect look to suit the hip “Revenge” actress. I’m totally in love with this outfit, and the way Ash passed on typical black pumps in favor of strappy hot pink “Neuron” sandals by Christian Louboutin with crystal detail. She completed her look with a sleek high ponytail, flawless makeup, and a black clutch to balance it all out.
Ashley was easily one of my favorites of the night! | continue reading..
MY VERDICT: Ashley looked fabulous last night! She put on her best party dress (courtesy of Monique Lhuillier), which was a classic short sleeve a-line silhouette with a playful splatter of silver against a beautiful teal base. Is it possible to love a dress so much more off the catwalk than you did when you saw it on the runway? The answer is yes, and this “Revenge” star is proof. She found the perfect black sandals to compliment the skinny belt before completing her look with slightly curled tresses, a hot pink lip, an embellished clutch and sparkling diamond stud earrings. ACED. | continue reading..
Bella Heathcote played with color and print by selecting this cap-sleeved Mary Katrantzou envelope and bird pattern Spring 2013 dress. With Mary’s dresses, you don’t really need any help in the accessories department—because let’s face it, your attention is going to that dress whether you’re into it or not. It’s going to take something major for the eye to stray, and that was no different in this case. With that said, Bella completed her look with black satin Lanvin pumps, a white Patrick Shannon minaudière, Bulgari jewels and wavy tresses.
Revenge star Christa B. Allen wore a black monochrome outfit, which consisted of a sleeveless ruched mock neck micro mini dress that she partnered with pointed toe t-bar patent pumps by Christian Louboutin that are appropriately titled the “T-Spiga”. She left her chestnut curls fall over her bare shoulders before finishing off with red lips and Bulgari jewels. | continue reading..
Ashley Madekwe: The “Revenge” actress brightened up her dark accessories for the early event by slipping on this drop-waist BCBGMAXAZRIA “Astra” ruffled hem mini dress in Gardenia. When you have great gams—you should totally show them off! Ashley put focus on hers with the added help of black peep toe boots from Hervé Léger by Max Azria before topping her look off with red nails and side swept waves. | continue reading..
The “Revenge” star wore a chic long sleeve brown and garnet floral silk dress from the Fall 2012 collection by Burberry Prorsum, thankfully without the milk-chocolate brown belt and bow elements at the shoulders. They work on the runway, but I figure they might have been a tad too much on Ashley.
She added a dose of berry to her lips before finishing off the look with a satin matching clutch and pewter metallic pumps, both by Giuseppe Zanotti. Additionally, Ashley accessorized with a Gilan ring, Sorilina earrings, and cascading shiny curls.
What did you think of her look?
The 30-year-old English actress is wearing the “Dezza” colorblock black-and-white longsleeve body-con dress by Kelly Wearstler, which featured the asymmetric graphic pattern going down the center panel ($486, bergdorfgoodman.com).
From the front, Ashley’s black suede pumps were pretty basic—but she has a little metallic detail going on with the heel. I wish she had worn something a little funkier–maybe an open toe boot or a biker sandal. As for the rest of her accessories; she rocked some large circular earrings that peaked out from her side-parted waves before she finished off with a shimmering clutch and a soft make-up palette.
Would you wear a heavy graphic pattern like Ashley?
