WHERE & WHEN: 3rd Annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards on June 10, 2013.
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.
The “Rust and Bone” actress dolled up in a black and white pebble speckle printed three-quarter sleeve dress by Azzaro with a big black bow at the waist and a flounce skirt. This dress is from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection, so it was nice to see Marion opt for a bit of a older design while everyone else is running for Spring 2013 looks. | continue reading..
Despite the night being all about the fellas, I couldn’t help but take notice of some of the fabulous (and not-so-fab) dressed ladies in attendance. Let’s take a closer look at what they wore! | continue reading..
Real life royal weddings are so 2011 — it’s time to count down to the big royal wedding from our favorite faux-princess! | continue reading..
With a few months to go until warm weather again, I’m totally enjoying getting to see so many jumpsuits on the red carpet.
It’s no surprise that people genuinely associate all things futuristic with Japan, therefore I wasn’t shocked by the shiny black plunging neck tuxedo jumpsuit by Azzaro that Paula Patton wore to the Tokyo premiere of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” last Thursday.
The smiling MI: 4 actress looked like she was having a great time on the red carpet at Roppongi Hills Arena, but I kept feeling like she was promoting the wrong movie, and a TRON motorcycle wasn’t too far away.
To keep up the fun attitude of the look, most of Paula’s make-up was pretty light, she let her hair loose, and slipped on a pair of star printed pumps by Dolce&Gabbana.
Despite the ‘look-a-me’ outfit, I’m much more excited about those shoes! These pointed toe pumps come in a variety of neon colors, but Paula made the right choice in selecting the shiny rose gold. This starry pump is currently available at Nordstrom.com! | continue reading..
Mandy Moore was one of the first to arrive. She wore a black knitted tank dress over a nude slip by Temperley that she paired with red platform Brian Atwood pumps. I can appreciate the burst of color on her feet, but I just don’t think this was an award show look. Despite how low-key the event actually was.
Jaime King posed on the carpet with pal Chloe Moretz. I really liked the lavender, peach, and ivory sheer graphic dress by Calvin Klein Collection that she wore, but oh-my-NO…those shoes. I seriously can’t understand why I keep seeing this style worn. Am I totally missing something? There’s nothing complimentary about the boat-ish front of this heavy shoe. It brings every look down for me.
It’s been awhile, but once again — I really like what Chloe wore! For the evening, the “Hick” actress wore a amber silk duchesse cap sleeve blouse with a pale gold collar and a black taffeta A-line skirt by Miu Miu. This was definitely fall-ready, and I adore that top. Chloe finished up with black with silver glitter trim heels — also Miu Miu.
Rose McGowan arrived in a sexy black lace cocktail dress by Dolce&Gabbana. I wish she had worn the perfect shoe with it, and while I adore those velvet ruby slingback platform Giuseppe Zanotti pumps — these were not the shoes for this dress. If her lips were going to be such a frosted pink, why wear dark red shoes?
Kristin Davis was one of the very few people who wore a gown — actually, I don’t think I saw anyone else on the carpet in a gown. Kristin stood out amongst all in a red silk vintage dress by Azzaro from Decades Inc.
I really love the neckline detail of this, but I keep feeling like something is missing when I see the exposed gathered at the waist. I’m torn on what belt she could have worn to cover; maybe a matching ribbon that tied in the back. It would compliment without being distracting. Kristin’s hair was styled in old-Hollywood pulled pin curls.
